The recent events in the news regarding a well known man being asked a question about sin depicts where America stands when it comes to the freedom of speech. Believers in God are the conduits through which God’s truth can be spoken. All of us need to be speaking out against every sin.
All sexual activity outside of marriage is sin in God’s sight. Whether we believe or not, we all will bow our knees before Him and admit that He is God Almighty in His timing. All who involve themselves in sexual activity outside of marriage between a man and a woman will face the consequences of their actions. They will stand before God in judgment.
There are absolute truths based on the Word of God. The laws of our land are based on Biblical truths. We are not to lie, cheat, be abusive, steal, kill – etc., etc. All of these are Biblical truths. God’s Word is the same yesterday, today and forever! His Word does not change – His truth does not change – GOD does not change.
Believers must become bold for Jesus! When we are asked about our beliefs, we must speak the truth! We are all born sinners who have fallen short of the glory of God. We all need a Savior! Jesus came in the flesh to die on a cross to pay the penalty for our sins. He has given us a HOPE beyond this life. We are living on the brink of His soon return for His Bride without spot or wrinkle.
Satan was kicked out of heaven because of selfishness. He desired to get the glory due only to the one true God of creation. Everyone who is against God’s truth is following his or her selfish god, Satan. They want to fulfill the lust of the flesh. They are walking down the broad way that leads to hell. God will judge us by our actions. If we live according to the flesh, we will suffer eternal death. If we live according to the Spirit, we will live eternally ruling and reigning with God over the new heaven and new earth. That’s an easy choice for me to make!
God so loved the world that He became the supreme sacrifice for our sins. He asks us to present our bodies a living sacrifice to Him as our reasonable worship. When we do, we can be transformed by renewing our mind through His Word! The gates of hell cannot prevail against the church. Satan is on the warpath to destroy every believer because he and his demons believe in one God and they tremble. They do not want to go to hell by themselves. They want others to live in eternal damnation with them.
Fear not, because it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Get a Holy Ghost backbone. Stand straight and tall in God’s truth. Allow your words actions to give glory to God. Don’t be fearful of liberal people in high or low places. They don’t believe that everyone should have freedom of speech in America. The only speech they want to hear is their godless ideas to make themselves feel good. Satan is a liar and the father of all lies.
At the end of The Book in Revelations 21: 7 & 8 it says, “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
My daily prayer is, “Come quickly, Lord Jesus!” But in the meantime, I will stand up and speak God’s truth at every opportunity. Yes, we who speak truth will suffer persecution and adversity, but it’s only temporary. I’ve read the end of The Book and I know God wins!!!!!!
