You may ask yourself why I am writing this if I am not right. The reason is because the knowledge of the truth needs to be known. Many have wondered over the years what has happened to those without knowledge of the truth. The sad fact is they died and went to hell. It is not God’s fault, but the Church. The Church as a whole has lost that “Go ye” and no longer is concerned with winning the lost at any cost. They are more concerned with keeping their current members and not wanting to step on toes in order to keep money flowing in. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has to be preached without compromise, for God is without compromise.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1a) Here is an example of how a verse is misused. Those that believe in eternal security say this proves one is in the favor of God even when sinning. They fail to read the rest of that same verse who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Romans 8:1b). If you live after the flesh the condemnation of God is upon you, hell will be your eternity. Those walking after the Spirit, holy, they have no condemnation.
The divine Blood of Jesus gives life to the soul, just as human blood gives life to the human body. If an infection is in human blood it can die. Sin is the infection that is plaguing many souls today; like a cancer. It is worse than any disease known for it destroys eternally.
A lot of prayers are wasted by those that live in sin But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear (Isaiah 59:2). Sin is separation from God, eventually leading to eternal separation.
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth (I John 1:6) I do not mean this statement in arrogance, but what Bible are those that believe in eternal security reading? You cannot have fellowship with God and walk in sin. God never mingles with sin. If you think He does, spend some time in the Word and see how God reacts to sin.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them (Matthew 13:15). Jesus knew that all people would not accept the truth, and nothing has changed today. Some people choose to be deaf and blind to the Word of God. They are dishonest hearted and do not “really” want God. The honest hearted can see the truth when given the chance. I have met people who do not really want to be healed for they enjoy the attention and sympathy they receive from others. Just the same, most people enjoy their sinning and won’t nothing to interfere with it.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness (II Corinthians 6:14)? Many Christians hang out with those that are heaped in sin. It does not matter if it is family or not, if they curse the God of Heaven or speak against the truth, it is separating time. The light of Heaven and darkness does not mix. You cannot expect to please people on this journey, most will not like you or the truth that is spoken, it is not them but the devil in them. I have seen all kinds of miracles and people around me fight the ministry where God healed them. They even have gone as far as to say it is of the devil. That is dangerous, not to mention ignorance. God heals today, but He will not heal where false doctrine is preached. He will not confirm a lie.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). Jesus is the authority, the foundation of salvation. No other religion will get one to Heaven but the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 3:11). Those sinning are building their house on sand and not the Rock Christ Jesus. The time will come when that sand will shift and the house will fall.
It is important to be free from sin, a must. In His great wisdom Jesus planned for us to be baptized in the Holy Spirit-the fire of God. When He is on the inside of those that will yield to Him, He is the Teacher, the Guide. Many churches today do not teach the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and they lack the results as well. They will not see mass miracles or the power of God work for they reject the Holy Spirit that performs them.
The Church Age is about to end and the trumpet will soon sound. I hope to be in that glorious event the Rapture. It will take believing the whole Bible and walking in holiness to make it. The Bible says the Lord is coming for a church without spot, blemish, or wrinkle. You cannot have sin in your garment, it will keep your feet on the ground.
