Nr. 112: It hurts for a man to meet God at times!

Nr. 112:

It hurts for a man to meet God at times!

Isaiah 6 1. In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a high and mighty throne, and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 seraphim stood around him. Each had six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they remained vague. 3 They shouted to each other:
"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Sabaoth.
The whole earth is full of His glory. "
4 bolts shook the threshold when the cry rang out, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then I said:
"Woe is me! It's out with me.
For I am a man of unclean lips,
I live among a people of unclean lips,
and my eyes have seen the King,
Lord of Hosts. "
6 Then flew one of the seraphs up to me. In his hand he held a live coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said:
"Look, this has touched your lips.
Your guilt is taken away your sin is purged. "
8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord:
"Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?"
I said, 'Look, here I am. Send me! "9 And he said:
"Go and tell this people:
You will hear and hear but not understand;
look and see, but do not understand!
10 Make the heart of this people dull,
do your ears hearing, Kline's eyes,
so it can not see with your eyes
and hear with their ears,
understand with their heart
and turn and be healed! "

Isaiah was a prophet who lived and worked under several kings of approx. 2,700 years ago. Here was the King Uzziah first year as Monarch in Israel, he experienced God at close quarters that he felt unworthy, call and lost. He was a prophet who had served with great results yet when God revealed himself in his majesty, glory and fullness, he was himself a great sinner in need of grace. He was like John entered in front of the throne of God in a vision: "In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a high and mighty throne, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Seraphim stood around him. Each of them had six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they remained vague. They shouted to one another: 'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Sabaoth. The whole earth is full of His glory.' Bolt shook the threshold when the cry rang out, and the house was filled with smoke "(Isaiah 6.1 to 4). The most remarkable thing Isaiah experience is that one of the seraphs come up to him, touching him and talking to him (v. 6.7). We do not know how many seraphim were standing around the throne, but they have been very impressive, and the whole scene was awesome. As previously mentioned, the term seraphim are not used elsewhere than in Isaiah 6,2.6. and here in John. Obvious. It is perhaps not quite correct to say that worship is one of the angels most important tasks for the word task contains an element of duty and are often the reason a slightly negative tone. It is more correct to say that the angels greatest joy and privilege is to worship God. In Revelation chapter 4 and 5, we get glimpses into the heavenly throne room where God sits on the throne of the universe:

"And I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the four living creatures and the elders - there were tens of thousands of ten thousands, thousands and thousands" (Revelation 5.11). This mighty throng worship God and the Lamb, who is Jesus Christ. In the same mansions are four beings who stand around God's throne: "Each of the four living creatures had six wings, and everywhere they had eyes, both around and under the wings. Night and day they cry without ceasing: Holy, holy, holy the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come "(Rev. 4.8).

Isaiah came up short, even if he was fair and a prophet.

Isaiah means "the Lord saves." His prophetic activity began around the year 740 BC Scientists believe that he worked as a prophet for about 50 years. He was married, his wife described as a prophetess. He was both a statesman and prophet. He lived in Judah. He had two sons, their names reinforced the message he brought. One was named: Sjearjasjub (ie a residual repent). The second cap: Maher-Sjalal, Hash-Baz (ie, quick change, quick prey).

The father of Isaiah was called Amos. (ESA 1.1) It is believed that Isaiah grew up in Jerusalem. As a prophet he had close contact with NOK royal house. The book's main part is about God's punishment for sin and God's infinite grace. There are no books in the Old Testament that the message of sin and grace, is so well presented that here.

There is a strong reading of the coming Savior and Redeemer, man of sorrows, the suffering Messiah, who goes to death under the weight of their sin. Christ's first coming, His birth, His nature and character, His suffering and death, His second coming in glory as the ruling is good described.

The prophet proclaims Immanuel (God with us). And the question is: Who is God? The answer is: God is with the rest, who repent (and Sjearjasjub stands as an expression of). What about all the others who do not repent? They will be a quick change, quick prey (and it is Maher-Sjalal, Hash-Baz as an expression of). This was first and foremost Israel in Isaiah's time, which was fulfilled when the people were abducted. However, this is something that applies to all times and all nations.

It was quoted widely from Isaiah both Jesus and the apostles. No other Old Testament book is quoted more often than the prophet Isaiah in the New Testament. Isaiah stood up in a time of economic prosperity for the kingdom of Judah, yet there was a great spiritual need. There were big changes at the political level. When Ahaz was king, was a lapsed time in Judea. The Temple service was just forms and customs, without life, and pagan customs were introduced.

There was corruption and those who ruled in Judea, made himself rich. Those who owned property did not care how the poor were. Judah was involved in a political game and Ahaz applied in such a situation the advice of Assyria. But it did Judea to a union under Assyria.

When Hezekiah became king of the country became independent again. Once again the country was a union under Assyria, this time they sought help, in Egypt. Then Sennacherib king of Assyria besieged Jerusalem. But his army was the plague and had to withdraw. After that, everything was quiet in Judea, but the people began again with his bad lifestyle.

Prophet's message

What is a prophet proclaims? He preaches the past, present and future. He does this with a prophetic glance and receive revelations from God, to put these things together.


Chapter 1-12: preachers punishment of the people of God and conviction of various Gentiles. Kapittel13-23: Judgement of the different nations.
Chapter 24-39: A section of judgment and grace.
Chapter 40 to 66: Prophecy of a future. Prophecies of salvation. Prophecies of the Messiah to come.

The prophet Isaiah experience versus our emancipated and hideous Protestant Christianity

1. Kor. 15. 32 Was it only with human hopes I fought with beasts at Ephesus, what would it be to me? If the dead are not raised, then "let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die." 33 Make no mistake! "Bad company ruins good morals." 34 Join now truly awake, and sin not! There are a few of you who know not God. It is a shame that I have to say it.

So said Paul to the church in Corinth that it was a shame for them that some in the congregation did not know God when they lived free in the moral area and at the same time both preached and spoke in tongues and had gifts in business in their lives. Protestant Christianity that now is beginning to develop is in many ways worse, more hideous and more deceptive than the Catholicism of a left in and with Luther.

Vision Norway

I have taken up the VN before and must do it again for the channel has no limit and magemål. I saw a while back some of the channel when I went recognize someone who comes from the same Øyna like me, Karmøy. It was the Evangelist Albert Aanensen, recently divorced, but the new woman that he supposedly now married again with. There he was profiled in the studio of his future father in law Svein Johnsen, etc.
When one is a preacher holds a a spiritual office. In an office followed the instructions, qualifications and competence. Here is the one who has failed with regard to marriage, but also the understanding that a failure, then goes quiet in the door afterwards and withdraws from his office, whether for a time. But no, it's just to go on with another lady and even more. It is a shame that some of you do not know God, Paul said, to the same, I will say here, but here it is not certain that know not God, but soon the whole of the Norwegian Christian public who do not know the consequences of sin, immorality and lack of fidelity.

God in his majesty

From Wikipedia: Majesty (høytysk majestät (middelhøytysk majestat) from Latin majesty, "greater") as of and review on a number of sovereign rulers, preferably kings and emperors (end of quote).
It is the God of the prophet Isaiah will meet, as the majesty that we all need to meet. It is that God will meet us small, miserable that makes God so great for us. Not first and foremost that we seek him, but he bends down to us erring and needy people of the glory to God, the highest.

There is something about God that we can be all too familiar and subdued him, it is also detrimental and dangerous to the spiritual life. God has no favorites and no one as he looks down upon. All we are just within its him and customs I am not well, I will also be lost no matter what I have of calling, equipping, and more.

1. Kor. 9. 26 I run, therefore, not without a goal, and I'm not like a boxer who turns in midair. 27 No, I'm fighting against myself and forcing the body to obey, lest I have preached to others, even to be rejected.

Paul was steadfast not just to others, but first and foremost to himself. He subdues his body so that he preached to others not even to perish and be deceived.

The Pentecostal Charismatic Christianity and other so-called Christianity is much on the rise in many respects truly Babylon the great harlot far ahead of the Catholic church with its loose morals, unbiblical teachings and audacity of God and other people. They are truly deceived and seduced when a never confront their own and others' sin and heresy! There are ramifications understand the Pentecostal charismatic Christianity that is completely okulte and highly deceptive. I've heard Hillsong with Brian Houston, it sounds like filling eggs, a hoarse man who goes out drinking. This is unfortunately just the tip of an iceberg of sham and seduction among pinsekarismatikerne.

God does not wink at sin

Repentance can not replace confession and opposite. Both belong together as a hub and ribs on a wheel. Make up your sin with people and it will go well with you and do not it may ultimately be that you lose your salvation and Christ's salary within its jurisdiction. It is not the impossible God requires of us, but our honesty and our integrity. That we will repent and make up for us. Are you a sign opposite Christian and re-married, you live in sin if you even confess it, it is only when one repents and lives right after writing that forgiveness does God's word. It says God's word on marriage and remarriage for us saved.

1. Kor. 7. 10 And unto the married I have this rule, not from myself but from the Lord: A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.

Everything else is against God's word and you marry a divorced come under the same sentence as him.

Luke 16 18 Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery. And whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.


In an independent congregation of my knowledge, the leader's daughter, youth and re-married in spite of their youth. There stood the church Evangelist up who had worked with a girl who was under the age of consent and said that she had a seductive and evil spirit, but he had abused had no! What is this fraud? This is a form of hypocrisy, deception and a dangerous game, both with other people, but also with their own and others' spiritual life that is so beyond biblical Christianity it is possible to get if you ask me! Is not this usually just a double assault? First, acting as a predator against a young girl and then put a blame on this! Fy for shame. The person has also been a guest of vision Norway several times without saying more about it.

Charismatic delusion

Includes end a speech by David Wilkerson who explains some of the delusion that this represents within its Pentecostal \ Charismatic preaching of the, character, worship without repentance, remorse, repentance and obeying God's word in everything.


He calls the "Lord's Day." He writes:
"We urge you, brethren, when it comes to our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together unto him: Do not be so soon drift wit and sense: Do not be terrified, neither by spirit, nor by word or
by letter as from us, and that is that the day of Christ is here.
"Let no one deceive you in any way, for a falling away first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition." (2 Thess. 2:1-3).
Some theologians believe that the "Lord's Day" that Paul refers to here is the final verdict. However, I think, with most scholars that Paul speaks of Christ's second coming. And Paul states that Christ's return will not take place until two things happen:

1. A large drop will take place. Many who once knew God will fall from the truth of the gospel they once have known.
2. Antichrist, or man of sin will be "revealed."
It should be clear to anyone who loves Jesus that "apostasy" is already taking place. Many believers today, as well as Christians throughout the past few decades has grown cold in their love for God. With that in mind, I would like to focus on Paul's second point - that the day will not come until the "man of sin
is revealed. "
What exactly does Paul mean by this sentence? He says that Jesus will not come back until the Antichrist has been enthroned as ruler of the world, and we all know his identity? I do not think so.
Paul knew that Christ could return at any moment. Jesus himself said that he would come when least expected, in the twinkling of an eye.
I think we will find a key to what Paul says in his use of the word "obvious." The Greek meaning here is "uncovered." I think Paul says: "Jesus will not come until the Antichrist full plan and
agenda is revealed, and the church was aware of it. "
Antichrist plan has already been revealed in Scripture. Paul declares, "For the mystery of iniquity
already work ...." (2 Thes. 2:7). He says that a mysterious kind of sin, even now at work, will
usher in the Antichrist. Apparently, a spirit of iniquity fall over lost humanity, and grab people's hearts so hard that the man of sin will quickly rise to power. But there is another meaning of this phrase: "mystery of iniquity." It comes from a
Greek root word meaning "quiet introduction." Paul speaks of a quiet introduction to the cult of the Antichrist -
a hidden, demonic influence that he saw taking place in their own time.
Right now, this same mysterious spirit in full seductive power, preparing masses of people
to receive the man of sin. Thousands are being brainwashed every day, quietly and secretly, to be led
into his fold. And this satanic work is happening so quickly and so effectively that the man of sin be
rise to power in the not too distant future.
We do not need to see a physical manifestation of the Antichrist before Jesus will return. His satanic spirit is already evident in the thousands of brainwashed believers!
Paul Fully Explains the "Mystery of Iniquity." Paul says the mystery is simply this: Satan will deceive the masses into the depths of lawlessness! The Greek word Paul uses
of lawlessness in this section means literally without law. Therefore, the mystery of lawlessness -
which means that the masses will act without law or restraint.
But this lawlessness is not simply a revolt against the rule of man. It's not about
rebellion against civil authority or to commit robbery, rape or murder. These things arouse God
anger. But the mystery of iniquity goes much deeper. There is a direct rejection of the truth that
are in Christ - a disregard of God's holy word and commandments. It is a rebellion against the scriptural injunctions!
Spirit of lawlessness is rampant in our nation today. It is the driving force behind legislation that seeks to
banish God from our society. This is the same spirit that Satan used to deceive Eve. He said
to her, in other words: "God is easy - he will not punish you for disobedience. You can eat fruit and
indulge in lust. You do not pay for it! "
It was a deadly lie from hell. And Satan uses the same lie on Christians today to advance their
mystery of lawlessness. Day after day he convinces multitudes of believers that they can indulge
for their sins, without any penalty. It is a demonic plot to pervert the grace
gospel, and turn it into a message of licentiousness!
Tragically, many lukewarm Christians succumbed to this spirit of lawlessness. Some have already
been brought into the cult of the Antichrist. They are ripe to receive the man of sin when he shows
on the scene, performs miracles and solve problems.
You may be thinking, "I'll never be fooled into following the Antichrist." But Paul says that Antichrist will rise
to power because people will be blinded and deceived by his own sin: ".... for Satan's activities with
all lies power and signs and wonders. It happens with all unrighteousness deception among those who
lost, because they received not the love of truth, that they might be saved. "(2 Thess. 2:9-10).
Satan will deceive the masses of people by convincing them of a simple but effective lie. What will
this lie be? He will convince the world that he ovebeviste Eve: "God punishes not sin!"
Paul says that this deception will come "with all lying power .... because they received not the love of
truth, that they might be saved. "(verse 10). Then he adds:" Therefore God sends them a powerful
delusion, that they should believe a lie "(verse 11).
The Apostle says: "Those who refuse to obey or respect the word of God will fall under a powerful delusion.
First, they condone their sin. They will justify it. But soon they will actively seek
after a message of cheap grace. They will invent a grace that is far beyond what God had
the purpose. His grace never leads to license. It always leads to repentance! "
Our Nation's Right Now Under a Strong Delusion: America today is under the seductive power of
a satanic lie. But before I say anything more, please know that, that I am not speaking here as a
Democrat or Republican. What I am saying has nothing to do with politics - but everything to do with
spiritual truth. The fact is that our nation's leaders have thrown the word of God completely ignored, and shows no
respect for biblical truths. And now the Lord has allowed a delusion to come upon us!
The demonic lie blanketing America today is a false peace. The notion that we
can do whatever we please without fear of consequences. We have already crossed a line in this
deception - and now the verdict inevitable.
Paul lays out this divine verdict in Romans 1 He speaks of those who once held
to biblical truth but later tried to keep the truth in unrighteousness. In short
so they wanted the word of God and his desires at the same time. So the LORD handed them over to reprobate
thoughts. They wanted to believe a lie - so he sent a strong delusion upon them!
This is the very condition of our nation is in now. The president told the nation. "I did not commit this
sin, "but later he was discovered to have committed the same act he names.
Today, eighty percent of Americans have turned a deaf ear to both his sin and his lies, and says that
none of it matters. As prophesied, the truth has stumbled in the streets.
The Americans also play the stock market like drunken sailors - and they are making progress. In addition, a
survey that sixty-five percent of college students cheat and do not think there is something wrong with
it. People of all ages treat God's law with indifference, thinking: "What I do have to be
O.K. because I get away with it. "
Now this attitude has crept into the church. Multitudes of Christians today are looking for dirty
videos or surfing the Internet for pornography. At one time their consciences have plagued
them. But now they reason: "All our leaders get away with it. Everybody does it. Why can not
I? "They have fallen under a demonic delusion!
It is true, we hear constantly lies, cover-ups and manipulation of our nation's capital. But the
big mistake our nation is not just about the dirty mess in Washington DC No,
Satan's seductive power goes far beyond those treacheries and depravity. His big lie is a
outpouring of hell to God's people!
Paul warns: "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own
lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. They shall turn away their ears from
truth, and turn to adventure. "(2 Tim. 4:3-4).
Who are these deceived masses Paul is talking about? They are deceived Christians! He wrote this letter
to the Thessalonian church - the born-again believers! He spoke to people who sat under biblical teaching
and known God's truth. Yet they had held on to their desires - and now they sought heretical
teacher who would comfort them in their sins!
I think Deceived Christians Will Be Among Those Who Pledge the Greatest Allegiance to the Antichrist! The evil has
always been "devoid" of truth - despised it, stepped on it, mocking it with contempt. I saw
An example of this recently in the New York Post, as one writer confidently declared that "Science has now
replaced faith. "
But Paul's main concern was always for those who knew the way of truth, confessing their faith in
Christ, but who flirted with sin. Paul wrote about those who tried to keep the truth in
injustice - an act that makes God angry. "Who changed the truth of God into a lie ....
Therefore God gave them over to shameful lusts. "(Romans 1:25-26).
Others who were held in slavery by their lustful pleasures, turned to false teachers to try
to find peace. They ended up accepting ".... heresy that leads to destruction .... many will come
to follow them in their nefarious ways, and for their sake to the way of truth will be blasphemed. "(2 Pet.
All Paul's message of apostasy and the Antichrist was directed against such carnal Christians. They were not intended for
idolaters of Rome, the nations of Greece, or the wild tribes in unknown locations. Paul
message was one of great importance for the church - and he wrote it that it should be read in churches,
directly to the faithful!
You see, Paul called God's people everywhere to love the truth - to find it, study it and
obey it. He wrote, in essence, "Let truth be your guide Do not turn you away from it. Ask the
Holy Spirit to give you eyes to see it, ears to hear it, and a heart to love it. Otherwise, the
you open yourself to deception - and you will end up believing a lie. Satan will be able
to bring you into the cult of Antichrist! "
I was recently witness to this kind of mistake when I saw a video from a
prosperity theology conference. At times this man hissed like a snake. Others in the meeting
crawled on the floor, howling like wild beasts, or curled up in the "holy" laughter.
At one point, a musician began singing, "Run for the money!" Song lyrics said in essence:
"If you run hard and fast NOK, you will be rich, rich, rich!" Suddenly people began to run wildly around the
building, singing, "Run to be rich!"
Please understand - these people were not ignorant people. They were all well dressed and seemed
intelligent. When I saw them I thought: "Who has bewitched them? How could
they accept such a foolish, unscriptural gospel? "
I concluded that once had most of them sitting under a true gospel and heard
sin of revealing messages. But apparently they did not want to hear it plain, simple gospel
longer - and now they had accepted a lie. They had a lust for money - a spirit of covetousness - and therefore
they ended up seeking out these preacher. He would teach them how to
serve both God and Mammon!
I am convinced that these people could listen to a powerful sermon that revealed their entire
false belief system - and yet they would not hear a word of it. They had been given over to a powerful
delusion - and they believed in the devil's lies! Paul called such deluded Christians ".... depraved in their
minds, reprobate concerning the faith. "(2 Tim. 3:8). They knew the truth, but they despised it!
I believe that the Antichrist will emerge as the greatest prosperity preacher ever. He wants to
known to be a religious personality, one that promises health and wealth. And those who are brainwashed
right now by false teachers will end up being his strongest supporters. They will accept him as
a true man of God.
If you do not believe this, just recall the scriptures. The Bible says that in the days just before Jesus' return
Satan will bring such an overwhelming flood of seduction, he will try to deceive even the elect, if
it was possible. It will not affect how long a Christian has walked with Jesus, he will stand
facing temptations he never had in his life. Even the strongest believers will be tempted to doubt God's
faithfulness and mistrust his holy word.
The Believer in the Greatest Danger of Being Seduced is the One Who Gladly hear the Word of God - But Not
Will Obey It! Paul writes to the Galatians: "Ye did run well! Who hindered you from being obedient to
the truth? "(Galatians 5:7)". .... Who has bewitched you? You who have received Jesus Christ painted on the eyes
as crucified "(Galatians 3:1). The apostle asked his flock:" What has happened to you? You did it
so so good. But now you have been brainwashed! "
Throughout scripture, God gives us a clear picture of how important it is for us to obey his word. We
see one example in the life of King Saul. God gave Saul clear, specific commands through the prophet
Samuel. He instructed Saul: "Now go and smite Amalek. Utterly destroy all that he has. Save him
but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, both camel and donkey. "
(1 Sam. 15:3).
Saul obeyed this commandment from the Lord? Scripture tells us: "Saul smote the Amalekites and .... Agag, Amalek
king, he took prisoner alive .... Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep and cattle and
fatlings, - all that was good, and would not beat them with a curse ...." (verses 7-9).
God had given his word to Saul in crystal clear terms. But after Saul went into battle, he obeyed
Lord only in part. Rather than destroying everything and everyone, he spared King Agag - and he even kept
with some of the spoils.
Samuel was grief-stricken because of this. He told Saul: "And the Lord sent you on, and said:
Go and beat the sinners the Amalekites, and utterly destroy and fight against them until thou have consumed them!
Why do you not obeyed the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil and did what was evil in the
Lord "(verses 18-19).
At this point, scripture gives us a hard and terse words: "Then the LORD said to Samuel, saying,
as follows: I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned away from me and have not done it
I commanded him ...." (verses 10-11).
Does this describe your life? Has God told you in no uncertain terms to deal with certain
lustful habits in your life - but you keep clinging to it, and refuses to deal with it?
Right now, the Spirit speak to you with a gentle, seductive voice that says: "Your desire is between
us and disrupt the community between us. I can no longer bless you as you continue in it. Chair
that my spirit will help you. Add it now my children. "But soon, God can speak to you in anger and
say: "If you do not put away your desire, I will reveal it - and it will ruin your life!"
God rejected Saul because of his disobedience. Samuel told Saul, "Rebellion is not better
than the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has
rejected you, so you should not be king. "(verse 23).
It was then that God's Spirit left Saul. King's half-hearted obedience had opened him up to Satan
influence. Soon, an evil spirit troubled Saul - and he ended up seeking advice from a witch!
Maybe you wonder when you read the account of Saul's life: "But Saul did his best. And he did
it's not too bad. Why was God so hard on him? Why did not he forgive Saul? "
God tells us through this passage that he means what he says! He said: "I show you what I
think of your disobedience to me. I want all your heart, all your love - not just a
halfhearted obedience! "
Now, if the Lord's message to Saul had been foggy and unclear, so we could well have said that he
should be given an allowance for Saul. But his direction to Saul was so clear that there was no doubt
what he commanded. Likewise today, we have no doubt about what God has spoken to us. We know his
bid, because he has revealed to us through His Word and by His Spirit in our hearts.
You might reply: "But what God did to Saul happened under the Old Covenant, under the law. We
live in the grace period now. The Lord will certainly not be so hard on us when we are disobedient as he was
against Saul. "
Here is God's word on the matter under the New Covenant, a covenant of grace:
"For he will render to every man according to his deeds. To those who by patient continuance in well doing seek
glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But them that are contentious and
disobedient to the truth, but obey unrighteousness - on them shall be wrath and anger.
Tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man who does evil, the Jew first, and then
"But glory and honor and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first and also the Greek. For
God is no respecter of persons "(Romans 2:6-11).
Let me lay out for you the difference between Saul in the Old Testament and all believers in the
New Covenant: When a person truly has a desire to obey God's commandments - when the person loves and
respect the word of God - as the Holy Spirit will supply him with all the power and ability he needs to
fulfill these commandments. This is the blessed provision of the New Covenant.
Saul did not have this kind of holy desire. But every believer who truly loves the Lord and his
Word is able to mortify all lusts, and to overcome sin's dominion by the Holy Spirit as
is in him.
Paul gives this strong word of warning to the believers: "But you, man, that judgest them which
do such things, and do the same - do you think you will escape God's justice? "(Romans 2:3). He says:
"Are you testifying that you are a Christian, and ask everyone to follow God's laws - yet you are living in adultery?"
"Or despise you the riches of his goodness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God
kindness leads you toward repentance? "(verse 4). Paul adds:" God has been gracious to you all
this time, and have treated you with kindness and love. Do not you understand that all his goodness,
mercy and grace are meant to lead you to repentance? "
What is the purpose of This Message? I want to say this to you above all else: the Antichrist
going to come on the scene as the greatest prosperity preacher in the whole story. And the devil
already picking halfhearted believers to be included in his entourage. Soon there will be no more
restraint in our society, and Christians will be more vulnerable than ever to demonic
This is exactly what happened to many German Christians in Hitler's days. When Hitler came to power,
with a charismatic personality and promises of the good life, so he was even accepted by the lukewarm
Lutherans and Pentecostals. And later, when he began to work his evil in society, they turned
in the other direction and rejected the truth of God's word.
Of course, some powerful voices of the gospel that stood up in these churches. But a
shocking number of believers ended up following Hitler and even praised him, shouting:
"Heil (or" Hail! ") Hitler!" They bought the lie - and God put them under a strong delusion!
I ask you: Do you sit under strong preaching that lovingly exposes your sin? If this is so,
allow that word to convict you? Or do you go right back to the desire not to make the
If you reject the warnings and the fact that the Holy Spirit holding you back - if you refuse to obey
God time after time, without any heart-grief - when you are about to be recruited to the cult of Antichrist.
Devil incorporate yourself quietly in his mystery of lawlessness. And when the promising, miracle-working
Antichrist is coming, so you will be dragged along by his lies and given over to a delusion!
Hear what Paul says about the believers who compromise, which refuses to love and obey God's holy word:
"That they should be judged, all those who have not believed the truth but had pleasure in
injustice. "(2 Thess. 2:12). Woe to those who knew the truth about their desires, but who do not believe
God will judge them!
Here are the ominous results of not believing and acting on God's truth:
1. The heart becomes hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
2. Satan works on the hardened heart for it to justify himself, so that it becomes
free from all fear of punishment.
3. When God sees that there is no possibility that this heart will receive and obey the truth, so
surrender his person to the satanic deception.
4. The believers are blinded by the lie that there is no punishment for sin and no
Judgement Day, and that they can get away with lustful pleasure.
5. The believer falls prey to doctrines of demons, and believe that evil is good and good evil.
6. Finally, he'll run as far away from Christ and the truth that he is blind to who the Antichrist is
- And he ends up to worship and serve Him as God.
7. On Judgement Day God will say to such a person, "Depart from me, you evildoers!"
Dear, it need not be so for some of us. God has a covenant promise to remove any
delusion from us and give us victory over sin through the power of Christ's cross. All he asks is that we
declares war against sin and says, "I will not make peace with this habit. I refuse to abide
by it. Deliver me, Father, by your Spirit! "When he hears this prayer, he will send such Holy Spirit
power and glory of heaven, the devil will not have a chance!
Pray now that God implants a strong reverence for his word to you. Ask him to help you be
disciplined in reading scripture. And ask the Spirit to help you take to heart what you read - to believe that God means what he says!
