People have a hard time when you say your a Christian,yet you’ll show dislike to sin.As though you are not suppose to hate sin,even the God we serve does.We have the religions of the world to thank for this.It’s not biblical though to teach God is Love yet leave out there are things he truly hates. “Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies”.(Psalms 139:21,22).If one does not know there’s evil and good in the earth than there would be no reason for the passage it is appointed to man once to die and then the Judgement.There would be no Judgement day!
Stay strong Saint’s for you do not stand alone,because the God Of God’s is by your side! His people are not called to live as the world does we are not of the world and all it stands for.A world that packages sin to look right,we have that today with the passing of the law for same sex marriage! If this were of God two people of the same sex in marriage none of us would be here and we would not be having this discussion.We are told not to be dismayed at their faces,because they stand for ways away from God while we stand our ground for the sound Justice of a Righteous God! Jeremiah was given the message of tearing down strongholds just as God’s people do today. “See I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant”.(Jeremiah 1:10).It is the planting of righteousness in the earth.
There is a book of remembrance Saints that is written with the names of those who do our Father’s will and not let sin run rampant,though being surrounded by those who mock the children of God as if it were vain to follow him. “Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yes, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels: and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not”.(Malachi 3:14-18).
We are a light in a world of darkness and are told to put on the mind of Christ and therein brings persecution to the Saint’s,for the children of the world seek their own and we seek the things that be of God.They speak of the world and the world hears them,we are of God therefore the world hears us not.
“Ye are of God,little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error”.This last statement holds alot of water to the Saint,because have you ever been all fired up to speak the word of God and the people who claim to be Christian cannot understand why your so happy speaking of God.Your made to feel like your speaking another language,in a sense you are because the Spirit of God and his words do not mesh with the world’s language.(1 John 4:4-6).”For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ”.(1 Corinthians 2:16). “For all seek their own,not the things which are Jesus Christ’s”.(Philippians 2:21).
God knows those who are his and the wicked will always hate the good in you.The more you speak the word the greater the opposition. “Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate”.(Psalm 34:21,22).”The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation”.Psalm 37:14).
Just as God took the Israelites out of the bondage of the taskmasters of Egypt,he free’s the soul’s of his people today and the Saint’s that stand for him will reap great reward! “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”.(Galatians 5:1)………………………….We’re Free Saint’s In Christ!
