|Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:7-9. In the preceding scripture there has been quite a disagreement as to the ability of man to have the mind of God. 1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. As Christians we do have the mind of Christ, His ways, His attitude, His thoughts but we do not have the mind of God for one simple reason, Christ doesn’t. Read; Mar 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. If Christ had the total mind of God then this scripture would not be true. “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts:” Many religious groups are trying to gain a foothold in society today to encourage a different type of life style. They are doing this by changing the word of God to suite their congregations. Making religious tolerance their number 1 priority. Nowhere in scripture can it be found that Jesus was ever tolerant of false or misleading doctrine. The Moslem religion is a false religion along with many others that are deceiving the people and drawing them away from the truth. 2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.|
Lets read an article I found the other day.
“Evangelical Leader Threatens to Use His Political Muscle Against Some Democrats. In a letter his aides say is being sent to more than one million of his supporters, he promises "a battle of enormous proportions from sea to shining sea" if President Bush fails to appoint "strict constructionist" jurists or if Democrats filibuster to block conservative nominees.” Are we not to be about our Fathers business or are we to be as the Moslem nations and become involved in strong-armed defiance of the freedom of the people to live their lives as they choose. It seems that the church is becoming involved in everything that the Apostle Paul warned us not to be. The future of Christianity in America is not based on Religious tolerance of, Allah, Same Sex Marriage, Strong armed tactics in politics or changing Gods Word to gain a bigger congregation, its based on, Luke 10:25-28, And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. More and more we are seeing the Moslem religion being praised on television and evangelical preachers defying the freedom of the people to make up their own minds. Moslems tell their people what to think, do, act and dress, are we converting to this type of evangelism, has America taken its first steeps toward Mohammadism? Are good will jesters, friendly faces on television, and a form of religion deceiving us?
1Co 6:9-10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
I don’t need to give you the meaning of these precious words from God. It plane and simple. No tolerance of sin will be allowed. Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, effeminate, extortioners, thieves, covetous, drunkards, extortioners. But still all in all, when all things are said and all the warnings are shouted, the people will turn to a one-world religion and its not going to be based on Christ.
1Co 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. (A sign against religious tolerance)
1Co 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. (Making a pact with Mohammadism or any other religion opposing Jesus is sin)
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.( Nations and peoples of the world in conjunction with the Moslem Religion) Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.(One world religion.) 2Ti 3:1-5 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Will America turn away from sin or will they turn away from Christ? I’m sorry to say that prophecy speaks of all Nations shall turn against Israel and the United States will be among them. What type of people should we be then; knowing the latter state of this earth will be worst than the first? Knowing that the latter state of faith will be shallow, for Christ even asked, ”Will there be Faith on the Earth, When I return?” Knowing that Gods prophecy will come true, and nothing will deter it from being fulfilled? Knowing that, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, will raise her ugly head in our own land?
This is not the end Brothers and Sisters, just the beginning of sorrows. Be ever watchful for soon your redeemer shall arrive and take us home.
