HAVE YOU RECEIVED A DIFFERENT GOSPEL?
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists will inherit the kingdom of God. I Corinthians 6:9,10
The Bible is very clear about sin and the consequences it brings with it, but today the message has been clouded by false teachers, prophets, pastors and apostles wanting everyone to come into their churches and as the song says, "Just as I am!" or "I was born that way!" without having to change or repent!
Everyone is invited, but for those who choose to follow Jesus there must be a transformation and repentance from their sinful lives. For instance, homosexuals have their own churches so that they can continue in their sin unabated and free to live immorally. Just like Sodom and Gomorrah, a city full of immoral and deceived people unaware of the impending judgment about to fall upon them!
The false gospel preached today eliminates repentance, conviction, the blood and self denial, instead promoting a lifestyle of the rich and famous so they can make more money to fill the false preacher's coffers. Millions of deceived victims struggling to make it while the greedy preachers live in mansions and fly around in multi-million dollar jets, not wanting to have to sit next to those filthy sinners on commercial airlines!
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:7,8
A DIFFERENT GOSPEL
I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds maybe corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you may well put up with it! II Corinthians 11:3,4
I thought there was only one Jesus, one gospel and one Spirit, but Paul is telling the Corinthian church that they were being deceived by false apostles and angels of light by preaching a different gospel with a false Christ and a demonic spirit instead of the Holy Spirit.
In meetings across America and around the world there have been reports of angel's feathers, gold teeth appearing in people's mouths and gold dust falling from the ceiling on unsuspecting folks being deceived into thinking that it was from God when in actuality it was false signs and wonders performed by demons. Uncontrollable laughter, people slain in the spirit and rolling on the floor, barking like dogs and being distorted by demonic spirits.
Do you see this in the gospel of Jesus Christ? Don't get me wrong I believe and have experienced signs, wonders, healings, deliverance and even the dead raised, but there is a difference when the demons are putting on a show for those who don't have discernment! The Holy Spirit is a gentleman and will never do something out of His divine character. Do not be deceived!
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. II Corinthians 11:13-15
PURGE OUT THE OLD LEAVEN
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles, that a man has his father's wife! I Corinthians 5:1
The apostle Paul rebuked the church at Corinth for allowing a young man to commit sexual immorality with his stepmother and not expose it as the scripture states! Paul would certainly have a rude awakening today in our modern day feel good churches who don't want to offend sinners!
Sin is likened to leaven and Paul told them to purge it out of the church and this is why there is no power in the churches today, because willful sin is not confronted or dealt with. Paul not only confronted this immoral act, but turned the boy over to Satan to be killed, that his spirit might be saved in the day of judgment! When was the last time you saw that happen? The Bible clearly states that when a brother or sister sins you go to them, if they don't listen you take another with you and if they still don't listen you put it before the church.
This is what purges sin out of the church and creates the fear of the Lord which is the beginning of godly wisdom. Today we act like God doesn't care anymore and we just do whatever we please, besides God has changed, He loves everyone and wants us all to be happy, even in our sin. Why even Hollywood goes to church because it is fashionable and they want to be seen by others! This is the reason God isn't in most churches! May God have mercy!
Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven (sin) leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. I Corinthians 5:6,7
