Sermon:
Are you keeping yourself away from the Accursed Thing? Joshua 6:17-18 ,And the city shall be accursed, even it and all that are therein.....and ye, in any wise keep yourself from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourself accursed..... Have you ever felt that youve been around the mountain 40 years, a time or too more than you should have? Do you feel that every time you pray, that it goes no futher than the ceiling? Well Isreal spent 40 years in the desert going around the mountain that should have been only a 19 day trip. What is an accursed thing? The Strongs Bible Dictionary says that an accursed thing is ,Vile, Trifling, a doomed object, or any thing that is, devoted to destruction. Who is your god? There are many in this life, people, money, possions, children, positions, titles, power, and believe it or not you can make a blade of grass a god. In Rome there are plenty of tourist, that go there to look at the beautiful, buildings and statues and streets but do they know that in reality, the statues in Rome come from Babylon, the capitol of paganism and idolitry.The Accursed Thing. Flase gods and false doctrine , deception of the first quality. Your children are learning about them in school every day, Zeus, Appolo, Venus, Aphridiety, and the rest. Greek mythology never came from a man just sitting around with nothing to do, they came from Satan and His Deamons, their right when they say Greek Tradgeids, they are. How can you mix Idols with Jesus and God, you cant. God declaired that no graven immage would be made of Him for man to worship. Well then what happens to people that take part of the accursed thing? Lets look at Joshua 7: 24-26. Here Achan took of the accursed thing and paid a high price for greed, his silver, gold wedge,the Babylonian garment, his sons, daughters, oxen, asses, sheep and all that he had, was stoned by the children of Isreal and then burnt with fire. Have you ever descovered that its easier to recieve help from unbelievers than to recieve aid from a christian. What is changeing the hearts of christians of today, why do they see a fellow brother and sister in need and turn their backs, or close up the bowels of compassion? Jesus said that the love of God is not in these people. If we cant love our brother whom we can see, then how can we say that we love God whom we have not seen? Who is Jesus? What were His teachings? What were His goals? Shouldnt we keep asking ourselves everyday? We hafe to work out our own salvation, with fear and trembling. Whats wrong with us, why cant we love our brothers and sisters, why cant we love Isreal and her people? They are in need and children are going hungry. Speek softly
