I know many people who are doing things against God, but they don’t want to acknowledge it’s against God, because it feels good to them. If you’re reading this post and you’re one of those people; you are wrong! Too many people have a pick me up put me down relationship with Jesus. They pick Him up when they’re trying to showboat for man or when they’re going through something. They put Him down or dismiss Him when they’re doing things they know aren’t pleasing in His sight.
No one can fool God you’re not that slick! He knows, sees, and hears it all. There are many people who are on a road of destruction to hell. I’m calling it like I see it. I’m not trying to put anybody down, I’m only trying to help someone. I’ve never been a person who sugarcoat anything to please people, the truth is the truth.
In today’s world people are doing any and everything. Men are sleeping with men, women sleeping with women, people sleeping with kids, and people sleeping with animals. There are all types of sexual immorality taking place. There are people who are addicted to all kinds of things (sex, other people, drugs, alcohol, food, sports, smoking, gambling, name brands, how they look, all types of material things, and you name it.) If anything has a hold on you, then it controls you, therefore you don’t have a hold on it.
People who claim to be about God’s business are caught up in all kinds of foolishness and nonsense. They are caught up in things they know are wrong and against God. Many have the audacity to reference Jesus when they want to pump themselves up in front of people. God is NOT in the midst of foolishness and wrong doing. Stop thinking just because you say something good about God He’s in the midst of what you’re doing. He’s not and you’re only fooling yourself!!
Many folks want to justify what they do by saying sin is sin. True it is, but in the Bible Jesus definitely does specify certain sins as abominations. He didn’t say all were , but He does say specific ones are. I’m not going to go into those, because if you don’t know them, then this will be a great time for you to study the Word for yourselves.
There are many people who want to pick and choose what is wrong or right. No, that’s not how it works! Wrong is wrong and right is right, period! When it feels good many want to believe it’s right while knowing it’s really wrong. Have you ever heard of a song that says “if loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right?” This is the way a lot of people feel. As long as they feel good doing WHATEVER it is they’re doing, they try to justify it as right. Wrong!!!!
My prayer for people is they stop playing with and mocking God. Stop pretending to be holy when you know you’re shucking and jiving. Stop referencing God for show when you know you’re doing things that are totally against His Word. If you’re not for Him then you’re against Him. I don’t care how much you talk about Him for show, you are only showboating for man. If you’re picking Him up and putting Him down when you think it benefits you, you’re not on His side.
Point blank; many will lose their souls because they don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. The many things people are doing they want to believe it’s right or it’s okay because of how it makes them feel. It’s NEVER right when it’s wrong! People have to open their eyes, minds, and hearts to the truth. If people don’t lay down the things they are doing they will forfeit their places in Heaven. Despite of what some celebrities and others say, there is ONLY one way and that is through the Son. If you don’t have a personal relationship with the Son then you can’t get to the Father.
People can play and pretend all day, but if they’re doing things that are against God and His Word, then they aren’t on His side. They know of Him by hearsay and out of tradition, but they certainly don’t have a true relationship with Him. It’s a personal journey that each of us has to decide for ourselves we want to take. I wasn’t always the way I am now. I went through some stuff to get to where I am now. I got some bumps and bruises along the way, but let me tell you; when I decided to give up things I know were against God; I NEVER turned back. I gave my life, my soul, my body, and my mind to Him.
The devil is busy doing His job. His job is to kill, steal, and destroy and he’s doing his job tenfold. He’s destroying families, all kinds of relationships, and individuals. As a follower of Jesus, I now see the devil for who and what he is. I know he will rear his ugly head by putting certain people in your way, thoughts in your head (out of the blue), or in some way trying to shake your faith. As a child of God you must pray for discernment so you can see the devil for what he is, because he will come in all kinds of ways, through all kinds of things and people. The Bible says “resist the devil and he will flee.” Many don’t resist, they let him have his way. There is an old gospel song that says “don’t let the devil ride, if you let him ride he will want to drive, don’t let him ride. Basically this is saying resist the devil, if you don’t he will take over. If you give him an inch, he will take a mile.
No matter what you’re doing today, if it’s against God it’s wrong and it’s enough evidence for you to know you’re NOT on His side. If you want to truly be on His side, you must be willing without apprehension to give up the wrong for the right. You must get a personal relationship with Him. You must put Him first above all else, which means you will not allow anyone or anything to take control of you nor will you obsess over anyone or anything. You will get into His Word on a daily basis and you will have a daily prayer life with Him. You will be a willing vessel for Him and you will understand your body is a temple of the Lord.
If you stop praising Him from your lips while your hearts or far from Him and start living what you profess, I promise you your life will never ever be the same. I will not tell you that you won’t have troubles, because you will. I won’t tell you that the devil won’t mess with you, because he will. I won’t tell you that everyday will be a bed of roses, because it won’t. Unfortunately life is full of ups and downs whether you’re serving God or something else. It was destined this way since the Garden of Eden and it won’t ever change, but if you’re on God’s side, you don’t have to worry about anything. You have NOTHING to fear! If you stand on His Word and believe Him over man; everything will be alright. We will always go into our peaks and valleys, but we won’t stay there if we believe in God. We must through it all trust and stand on His Word. He never forsakes us and He’s always by our side. Hold on to His hand, He will NEVER let go of yours.
