WHAT’S WRONG WITH WRONG?

PRO.14:9-12

“FOOLS MAKE A MOCK AT SIN: BUT AMONG THE RIGHTEOUS THERE IS FAVOR.

THE HEART KNOWETH HIS OWN BITTERNESS; AND A STRANGER DOTH NOT INTERMEDDLE WITH HIS JOY.

THE HOUSE OF THE WICKED SHALL BE OVERTHROWN: BUT THE TABERNACLE OF THE UPRIGHT SHALL FLOURISH.

THERE IS A WAY WHICH SEEMETH RIGHT UNTO A MAN, BUT THE END THEREOF ARE THE WAYS OF DEATH.”

THERE IS A HORRIBLE GAME THESE DAYS OF MAKE BELIEVE. IT KEEPS SO MANY PRETENDING THAT EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT AND SIN JUST DOES NOT MATTER. THEY WILL CONTINUE TO PRETEND THAT THEY ARE LIVING RIGHT BEFORE GOD.

PRETENDING IS A WAY OF DECEIVING OWNS SELF!!

EVEN IN THE CHURCH MANY TODAY BELIEVE THEY CAN GET BY JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS.

“FOOLS MOCK AT SIN”

SOME SAY THAT SOME THINGS JUST DON’T MATTER ANYMORE, AND I ASK, WHY NOT? AND WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE CONVICTIONS YOU ONCE HAD. AND WHATEVER GAVE YOU OR ME THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT GOD SAYS IS RIGHT OR NOT.

HOW LONG HAVE WE BELIEVED A LIE AND HOW WILL WE MAKE IT IF WE CONTINUE TO DO SO?

SOLOMON WRITES AND SAYS,

“THERE IS A WAY WHICH SEEMETH RIGHT TO A MAN…”

AT FACE VALUE, A LOT OF THINGS DON’T SEEM SO BAD THESE DAYS. THINGS JUST DON’T SEEM TERRIBLE, WICKED, OR SINFUL. BUT AS SOLOMON TEACHES US…

“BUT THE END THEREOF ARE THE WAYS OF DEATH.”

WE NOW SEEM TO BE IN A PLACE WHERE SOME THINGS JUST DON’T BOTHER US ANYMORE. WHY NOT? GOD HAS NOT CHANGED HIS MIND ON SIN AND WHAT IT IS. SO HOW DO WE COME UP WITH SUCH DECISIONS BASED ON THE WORDS OF THE WORLD OR WHAT SOMEONE HAS DECIDED IN A COURT OF LAW OR EVEN IN THE POLICTICAL REALM.

CAN WE REWRITE THE LAWS OF GOD AND DO WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECIDE HOW GOD SHOULD THINK OR ACT.

I SHOULD SAY NOT.

WE ALL KNOW TODAY THE THINGS THAT WE SHOULD ALL DO AND NOT DO IN OUR LIVES. FOR GOD HAS GIVEN US THE ABILITY TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

HOWEVER MANY OF US HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO BECAUSE WE THINK WE CAN GET AWAY WITH SOMETHING OR THAT GOD WILL FORGIVE US OR MAYBE IT IS JUST TOO FUN TO DO IT ANYWAY.

PRETENDING THAT EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT IS TO COVER UP YOUR SIN AND YOUR SINFUL WAYS. AND YOU KNOW WE ALL HAVE DONE THAT!!

NOTICE THIS WHAT PAUL WRITES:

ROM.1:21-22

“BECAUSE THAT, WHEN THEY KNEW GOD, THEY GLORIED HIM NOT AS GOD, NEITHER WERE THANKFUL, BUT BECOME VAIN IN THEIR IMAGINATIONS, AND THEIR FOOLISH HEART WAS DARKEND.”

“PROFESSING THEMSELVES TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS.”

THE ACT OF MAKE BELEIVING IS IN FACT THE LACK OF TRUSTING GOD!

THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING.

PRO.3:5

“TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART, AND LEAN NOT UPON THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.”

WE ALL NEED TO LEARN TO LEAN UPON THE LORD AND GO TO HIM WHEN WE QUESTION ANYTHING CONCERNING OUR SALVATION.

ALL IS IN THE HANDS OF GOD, YOU SEE I WOULD RATHER BE DOING ANYTHING RIGHT THAN TO GET CAUGHT DOING ANY LITTLE THING WRONG.

???

“EVEN IN THIS DAY OF HIGHER PRICES, THE WAGES OF SIN STILL REMAIN THE SAME.”

HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO LIVE OUR OWN WAY?

HOW LONG CAN WE HIDE FROM REALITY?

THE WAY OF IGNORANCE AND CARELESSNESS, THE WAY OF SENSUALTY AND FLESH PLEASING, SEEM RIGHT TO THOSE THAT WALK IN THEM, AND MUCH MORE THE WAY OF HYPOCRISY IN RELIGION, EXTERNAL PERFORMANCES, PARTIAL REFORMATIONS, AND BLIND ZEAL: THIS THEY IMAGINE WILL BRING THEM TO HEAVEN BUT THEY WILL PERISH WITH A LIE IN THEIR RIGHT HAND!
