JESUS DIDN'T COME TO BRING PEACE
"But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in Heaven. "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword." Matthew 10:33,34
Today, making peace with people who are offended by God is actually compromise, because Jesus did't come to bring peace on this earth, He brought a sword that divides! The gospel of Jesus Christ is a sword that cuts deep the hearts of the unbeliever and separates the tares from the wheat!
We are coming into the time that Jesus explained to His disciples that many would be offended and would betray one another and hate one another, and so it is as we see plainly on the nightly news. In God we trust, the Ten Commandments, the Pledge of Allegiance as well as any other scripture reference is offensive today to the multitudes who deny God!
There is a new generation of undisciplined and untrained children who have risen up in unbelief and have liberal minds that will not accept God, His word or the Lord Jesus Christ. Pagan and perverse they reject any godly influence and turn their hearts and minds toward the darkness. Raised in a godless environment of electronic devices, their music, their social media and even the children's cartoons are filled with demons!
There is a generation that curses its father, and does not bless its mother. There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, yet it is not washed from its filthiness. There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up. There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, and whose fangs are like knives. Proverbs 30:11-14
"For I have come to set (alienate) a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; "And a man's enemies will be those of his own household." Matthew 10:35,36
There is an outcry at the Texas/Mexico border about children being separated from their parents who have illegally entered the US, but when one comes to the Lord he is separated from his parents as well because he is no longer unclean, being washed in the blood of Jesus.
Because the believer has been saved, his world view and the issues of his heart have had a drastic change. Take Muslims for instance, when any come to Christ they are immediately rejected by their families and many are killed for their faith! This is also true in many third world countries of different religious beliefs.
A very popular TV host was interviewed and asked what he thought about kids being told by their parents that they can choose their own gender. The host said he didn't think that was right, being a father himself, but because of an outcry from the LGBT-Q-P community he later retracted his statement and apologized.
"He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me." Matthew 10:37
WILL YOU DENY JESUS?
"If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it." Luke 9:23,24
Self denial is not taught nor practiced today in our worldly churches, only health, wealth and success are preached and practiced by a group of people who don't know God or His gospel! Simply pray the prayer and prosper are the words of the pillow prophets who tickle the ears of the deceived, who don't have eyes to see nor ears to hear what the Spirit is saying!
America and most of the world is sinking into Hell because God's people wont obey the "Great Commission" to go and preach the gospel to all the nations. Never trained or equipped by greedy leaders who lust after money, power and success they languish in the pews, rotting away, being poisoned by false teaching, tradition and the doctrines of demons!
The end of all things is at hand and the bride has not readied herself, instead, waiting on a rapture that may turn out to be a rupture for them who deny Christ's command to go! The world is becoming dark as mothers murder their children by the millions, mass shootings kill hundreds by demonized killers, the LGBT-Q-P agenda preys on our children and drug and alcohol addiction destroys the lives of millions, while God's people deny Him! Will you?
"For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father's, and of the holy angels." Luke 9:25,26
