While watching television today and browsing social media sites I saw so many messages that are non-conforming to God’s word. I wrote down a list of these things and will not address all of them on here today. However, it is clear after going back and reading 2nd Timothy that we are now in times that were described in that scripture. In 2nd Timothy Paul warned Timothy about difficult times that will happen in history. Paul wrote that people would become lovers of themselves, lovers of pleasure, abusive, unforgiving and show an ungodly attitude. Ungodlike acts of violence, the breakdown of the family unit, drugs, alcohol and acceptance of anything goes has left the United States in a complete mess.
Jesus also warned his disciples in the bible that Satan would plant his deceptive ways among the church and in people’s hearts. The world would become full of false believers and be guided by false doctrine. As believers we must resist this doctrine and stand firm against Satan’s attack on humanity. We must not conform to ungodlike principles and an anything goes attitude. This will not be a popular message for many, but for others it is reassurance of what God expects of us. It is not what we want, but what God wants for us. Believers must stand against evil thoughts, ideas and false doctrine.
God loves everyone, he made us all in his image. The commandments given to Moses have not changed and still stand as the expectations God gave us. Take a look around and see what is happening right now in America. False doctrines are being bombarded to our youth daily. Violence, hate, jealousy, self-loathing and immoral behavior are pushed by large social media outlets, famous people and political action groups. At what point do we take a stand? Do we sit back and watch the devil destroy our amazing country or do we take action and stand as one nation under God!
More importantly, do we stand back and watch God’s word be destroyed, dismissed as untrue or Fiction? I for one will take the attack from those that hate, are lost and do the devil’s bidding. For I know the grace and mercy of God. He loves us all, but does not like sin within us. Turn to God, seek his justice and guidance. Turn away from ungodlike thoughts, actions and behaviors. Whether you believe it or not, the bible tells us we will all account one day for our life and the things we did.
- Are you willing to stand for good, for God?
- Are you willing to conform to the idolatry of the devil?
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
God, I pray for your guidance, grace, mercy and protection against those that choose to hate, be spiteful and trample upon my faith. I pray for forgiveness or their transgressions and for an awakening of their spirit. Amen
