Summary: I had a very animated professor at Bible college by the name of Dr. Emert. He taught us about the danger of blaspheming God's Son by claiming that He is anything less than God.

Get Off Of My Porch!

Isaiah 5:20-25

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for

darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own

eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of

strength to mingle strong drink: 23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the

righteousness of the righteous from him! 24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the

flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as

dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy

One of Israel. 25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath

stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their

carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand

is stretched out still.

Introduction:

God does not take evil lightly. When the cries of the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah came to

Heaven, God reduced these great cities to cinders. When the old world sank deep into violence and sensuality,

God sent a flood to wipe out all except Noah and his married sons. When Korah led a rebellion against God's

man, Moses, the earth opened and swallowed all his followers. When David sinned by numbering the people ,

a plague came and killed 70,000 men! My friends, there is a pattern here. When God strikes our in judgment,

He makes a wide swipe. Sin will effect many more than the actual perpetrators, but rather it effect everyone that

is connected to the sinner. If the offender is a family member, the family is effected. When it is a local leader,

all who are under the effect of that leadership is in danger. When it is a national leader or group of leaders, then

the blessing or cursing of an entire nation is at stake!

I had a very animated professor at Bible college by the name of Dr. Emert. He taught us about the danger

of blaspheming God's Son by claiming that He is anything less than God. He told how for some the earth

opened, for some fire fell from Heaven, and for some floods came. He told us that he had one response when

false cults come to proclaim their heresy. "I have just paid off my house and enjoy it very much. If you are going

to continue to spout evil doctrine that will anger the God of the universe, at least get off of my porch!

Our passage today speaks very clearly about the worldly mindset of the day. This is a passage that should

cause the false teachers to beware and repent of their evil teachings, and it is a passage that should wipe away

every shred of apathy shared by Bible believing Christians about the nation is which you live! I will not turn this

message into a partisan political debate, but I will not shirk my responsibility of preaching the whole counsel of

God! Many of the choices in this coming election are clearly defined in our passage today. It is time that we

create some healthy distance between us and the haters of God. I am not saying that we should not be soul

winners. We must reach all that we can. I am saying that we must, for the sake of our children and our nation,

take heed and out shine the workers of darkness! We must make the message to those who are defined in this

passage, Get off of my porch!

I. Tell The Corrupters To Get Off Of Your Porch!

Isaiah 5:20

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for

darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

God uses an old fashioned cry, "Woe!" This is a warning of coming sorrow, grief and misery. This verse

speaks of corrupters, those who change definitions. There are those who switch the definitions of good and

evil. Unlike today's "educated" opinions, good and evil do not change with the climate of culture! THere are

those who will call evil good. It is not a new thing! The people of Israel longed to go back into the slavery of

Egypt because they were tired of submitting to God's man and God's authority. It was that longing that led them

to distort their past life of evil slavery and long for it as though it were a good thing. You do the same thing when
