The NUMBER THREE thing is INIQUITY.
MATTHEW 24:12 ďAND BECAUSE INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND, THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD.Ē A lot of people donít even know what iniquity means. Iniquity to me when I studied it out means once youíre saved by the grace of God and you try to go back to your old life and you know that itís sin and yet you still turn from the commandments and laws of God, youíve transgressed the commandments of God. And anytime youíve transgressed the commandments of God youíve committed iniquity. We shouldnít transgress on what blessings Gods bestowed upon us. In PROVERBS it says this: He that shall soweth in iniquity shall reap in vanity. Any time you turn from God and youíre saved, God will chastise you. If God donít chastise you then youíre a bastard and youíre not a saint of God. Thatís what the word of God says. It means youíre lost. Those that are saved get chastised and they get punished. You know why? Because he loves us. God does not save you for you to choose to go back to your old life. The children of Israel told Moses that they would have been better off had they stayed in Egypt in bondage as they had plenty to eat and drink there and God punished them for that. Youíre not better off in this world. Youíre better off being separate from this world. Itís a blessing just to be called a child of God.
The NUMBER FOUR thing is ERROR OF THE WICKED.
2 PETER 3:17 ďYE THEREFORE BELOVED, SEEING YE KNOW THESE THINGS BEFORE, BEWARE LEST YE ALSO, BEING LED AWAY WITH THE ERROR OF THE WICKED, FALL FROM YOUR OWN STEADFASTNESS.Ē
Christians will get out around lost people and their not strong in faith and the word of God and in prayer and they become wicked themselves. Peter did that once and he went to preach to the people and he became like they were and Paul had to go over there and correct him. He said if you being a Jew do live like the gentiles then why are you trying to persuade the gentiles to live like a Jew? Paul said you have to be separate from them. But a lot of people fall to the error of the wicked. They see them doing something and say well they donít have no troubles or trials and if they can do it why canít I? Thereís a lot of people today that are looking at the devils children instead of looking at Godís children. Trying to act like them, talk like them and walk like them. Weíre supposed to be children of God and not children of
