Get Real with Christ
I am sick to death of so called Christianity that mocks God. Don't tell me that you love God, whom you don't see, when you will not love even your own brother in the Lord whom you do see. It is sick and perverse and you are lying to yourself and have become a clanging gong and a tinkling symbol.
You don't even know God. You are a mocker and a wolf in sheep clothing. You need to know that unless you love, and not a feigned love but a true and sincere love, your every work "in God" is worthless. Repent and do the first works or God will remove your lampstand from you and your ultimate destination is not eternity with God, but you will share your eternal abode with the children of disobedience, there will be morning, weeping and gnashing of teeth for you, not rejoicing and enjoying eternity in peace, love and joy.
Stop with the hypocrisy. You who go about devouring and dividing, in your fleshly lusts for fame, fortune, success, notoriety, etc. What good is it my friend if you go about gaining the whole world but you lose your own soul. You can preach in front of thousands, you can build a mega church, you can be broadcast around the world on satellite TV, you can give your body to be burned and give your goods to the poor, but if you have not love, you have become worthless.
These are not my words, but the words of scripture. Why do preachers read their Bibles every day and yet again and again go back to building their own personal reputations and their own personal kingdoms. Enough! For the love of God enough.
Why do people who attend church call themselves followers of Christ and yet do not take seriously every word and every warning that the Bible lays before our eyes? Stop calling yourself a Christian if you are not willing to die to self. Stop calling your self a follower of Christ, unless you are willing to go to the Cross for the cause of Christ, for the salvation of lost souls. If you love, hockey games, football games, basket ball games more than you love reading the word of God and living as we are commanded to live you are a liar, a hypocrite and you will have your part in the lake of fire.
The Bible says hypocrites will not inherit the Kingdom of God. The Bible says drunkards will not inherit the Kingdom of God. The Bible says that those who walk in the works of the flesh will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Do you think that these new testament, post resurrection, apostolic warnings are somehow not applicable to you? If so, then you are not a believer at all, you are not a follower at all, and you are most certainly not, as you are called to be, an ambassador of Christ.
Repent and sin no more. Stop looking around for other people's specks, searching and hunting and digging around in shadows looking for dirt on others. You will stand before God and give an account for you. You will not give an account for me, you will not give an account for your neighbor, you will give an account for you!
You need to know that God will not be mocked. He will stand before you and you will kneel before Him, He a righteous judge and you a filthy sinner dead in trespasses and sin unless you repent and be truly born again. It's not about a sinners prayer, it is about a sanctified life, it is about being holy as your Father in heaven is holy, it is about being perfect, blameless, without spot or blemish.
Are you getting me here?
Jesus said unless your righteousness exceeds that of the Pharisees you will by no means enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This is not a joke, Jesus said go and sin no more, He didn't say go and give it your best shot.
Yes all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but we are to be a redeemed people; redeemed from death to life, from being servants of sin to slaves of righteousness. How is it that we who have been saved from sin should any longer in it? Should we sin more so that grace may abound? NO! For the love of God NO!
A people on fire for God is a people focused on rooting out all sin in one's own life and helping each other walk worthy of God's name and high calling. I have not attained, but this I do, forgetting what has gone before, I press on toward the upward call in Christ. Will you join me in being serious about true faith in Christ? Will you become, a true ambassador of the Kingdom of God? Will you become a co-worker and a co-heir with Christ? Or will you believe that a faith that is said rather than effectually done is sufficient?
I pray that God give us all a soberness and a hatred of our own sin that the witch hunt that we will do will be in our own hearts storehouses of sin and wickedness. I pray that we rend our clothes and cover ourselves with dust and ashes over how evil our sin is in the sight of God, and how we will pursue holiness and true love with all of our heart.
