SUBJECT - NO VISION, NO FUTURE!!! [PT. 6]
I left off with this point of view, concerning the issue of Grace, and how we are taking the wrong point of view, as to how we are supposed to live our lives.
Before any one can fully understand what is happening in this physical world, in which we live, they have to understand the spiritual side of things. And the only way they can do that, is if God, by way of the Holy Spirit, shows them. If they don't have that, then, quite frankly they are a disaster, waiting to happen.
And since it is preachers that are supposed to be leading the people to God, but are essentially, in over 80 percent of the cases leading the people in to war with Him, then you can see where our problems lie.
Every thing that happens in this world, good and bad, happens because of something we either are, or aren't doing. It's that simple.
And, the main thing we should be doing, but aren't is walking in Righteousness.[right standing in God's eyes].
But, the question is, how do we do that???
We do it by learning about Him, then adjusting our lives to line up with those likes, and dislikes. In other words, if it is sin, we are to reject it. If it is righteousness, then we are to embrace it.
Now, in order to do that, we have to have someone who knows these things to lead us on that path.
The main One to do that, is Jesus Christ, through the Holy Ghost. Jesus said, John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into ALL TRUTH: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
All truth means, He will guide us through the maze of the mess that is the man made garbage that passes for what we[mankind] calls reality in this world.
While we look to scientists, philosophers, politicians, activists, financial planners, and all the rest of the so-called college educated elite, with all their degrees and doctorates, for guidance, we see that in time, all of their solutions have proven, or are proving to be the main things that are destroying us.
Because their solutions are based on half-truths, and outright lies, which in the short term, may appear to be the right thing, but, over the long haul, will only show us how stupid we were for going along with them.
This happens because the majority of these people, have no vision of how God designed things to work. As a result, their solutions are hit or miss at best. And mostly miss.
The few that try to incorporate what God has to say about the situation, are shouted down, and made to look like nuts.
Let me give you an example of how things are going in situations like what I am talking about, and how these leaders are blind to the REAL REALITY!!
Those of you that have had Algebra could easily solve this problem. 5+x=8. What is the value of x?? In this problem, with the known quantities being 5 and 8, the value of x would have to be 3. That is the only logical conclusion.
Well, suppose someone came to you and said, 5=8?? What would you say?? You would say, that is impossible.
Well, we have gotten so in to what is a lunatic way of thinking, that we readily accept the same type of logic, as being common sense.
The bible says God created 2 individuals, Adam and Eve. One is a male [man], and the other is a female[woman]. After He created them, and assigned them what tasks to do, and what not to do, the bible says everything was Good.
When Adam, not Eve, disobeyed God by eating the fruit of the tree that God commanded him not to eat, every thing, all creation was cursed.
Now, if disobedience to God, caused a curse to come on the earth, and every thing that dwells on, in or beneath it, then it should be a forgone conclusion that obedience to Him, would cause blessing to come on those that choose to obey Him.
That is the algebraic way of looking at it.
However, man, with all of his edumacation [intended to spell it this way], looks at our problems, without considering God, or His Word.
Therefore he[man] has removed the X factor from the equation, and starts calling what is sin, according to God, as being anything but.
The bible says homosexuality is an abomination, and those that participate in it, will be destroyed, both physically, and spiritually, except they repent [turn away from it].
These educated fools, call it a simple lifestyle choice, that should be accepted because God made them the way they are.
What should be noted here is the fact that most of them deny that God is real. But, if they have to face the fact that He is, then they ascribe their condition as being a Divine appointment by Him.
Notice, just as 5=8, sin=righteousness..
Then we have the case of men, and women, claiming they are not what they were born as, but the opposite gender. In other words, a male claims he isn't really a male, but a female, and vice versa.
So what do the educated come up with, to solve the psychological problems these people have, which really isn't psychological, but the manifestations of the curse of sin in their lives??? They perform sex change operations on them. That is the only solution, because 5=8!
This is the only solution they can come up with because they are totally ignoring anything that makes a reference to God. And, in doing so, those that follow their advice become headed for a bleak future.
Look at the condition of the LBGT community in this nation. They are constantly going around protesting the fact that they aren't being treated right. They are being persecuted, assaulted, and killed, all because of their lifestyle.
Not that it is right[the way they are being treated], but they are reaping the consequences of their sinful lifestyle. It is all part of the curse. The curse of being disobedient.
Rather than turn away from this evil, so they can begin to see the Truth of God's Word as it pertains to reaping blessings for obedience, they engage in activities and support politicians and whoever else that will promise them that they will help them to get what heretofore God has reserved for the righteous[obedient].
Well you can see the results of this type of mindset, when now, as has been blaring all over the news outlets, now get this,
laws are being passed to allow men/boys to go in to a woman's/girls restroom, if they consider themselves to be female, while yet still having fully functioning male genitalia.
And by the same token, women/girls are to be allowed to go in to a restroom for men/boys while still having female genitalia.
Do the terms rape, molestation, especially when it involves children come to mind??
Talk about going out the world bass ackwards!!!
And in too many cases, preachers are in support of this, and support boycotting any business or state government that refuses to go along with this lunacy, especially when they are standing on God's Word!!
In our society today, most, and I do mean most, preachers especially in the black community label themselves as being 'progressive'
meaning they subscribe to the idea that we need to jump start the process of bringing the lost[unsaved, sinners] in to the church.
The problem is, in their zeal to do this, they are compromising on those parts of God's Word, that most of these individuals don't want to hear.
The bible says, Rom 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
This means, they may be thinking they are doing what is pleasing in God's eyes, but, are really engaged in open warfare against Him.
There is a price to be paid for being at war with God, and this nation, and especially the black community is paying it!!
You see, the problem is, they, these preachers are thinking along the lines of what has been described political correctness [the new religion of today] which really boils down to walking after the flesh[the wisdom of man].
When using this type of wisdom, mankind can justify just about anything they feel good about, no matter what it is. Have you ever heard the phrase, 'if it feels good, do it??!!'
Well, this is the mentality of the LBGT community.
Not trying to psychoanalyze every individual in that community but, as is the case with all of mankind, people will do what feels good to them. I don't know of too many, if any, individuals that engage in an activity if they don't get some sort of pleasure out of it, unless it is a case of saving their lives, or relieving some sort of pain.
The bible says that there is pleasure in sin[Heb 11:25]
Sin, is described as a transgression of God's law[rules] 1John 3:4.
The nature of mankind is to do things that brings them, or rather their flesh, pleasure. As a result of the curse, the flesh seeks those things that are against what God says, to derive its pleasure.
This is why, even from childhood, children have to be taught to do what is right.
If you will notice, children have a propensity of doing things that they have to be weened from, over the years because of the danger or antisocial nature of their actions.
This is why we are told, .Prv 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
The majority of the problems we have today, are a direct result of the failure of the one institution that is supposed to give clear direction as to what is right, and what is wrong, in God's eyes so that He will pour out His blessings on us. That institution is the Church.
But, the LBGT community does not want to hear what God has to say because God's Word, takes the pleasure out of what they enjoy doing so they partition government, to pass legislation to effectively shut down any speech that makes them feel guilty about something that they enjoy.
And guess what???
Many preachers go along with it. Especially those in the black community.
How do they do this??? By supporting politicians that tend to side with the LBGT community in passing that legislation.
And why do they do this???
It is because they have no vision/knowledge of God. Oh sure, they can put on a good act, with how they preach, and the things they say, but any actor can do the same thing and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
The only way you can tell the difference between an anointed preacher and one that is counterfeit, is if you have a vision/knowledge of God.
That is why this series is entitled the way it is. Because effectively, if you have no vision of God, then your future is bleak, at best.
And do you know what's worse???
You pass your problems on down the line to your children and their children.
If we look at all the problems our kids are having in school today, we see that they are all doped up on all sorts of drugs to deal with hyperactivity, stress, and a myriad of other problems related to what has been called psychological illness.
Every thing that is wrong with our kids nowadays, they have a drug for. The problem is however, there is no drug that can deliver you froM the effects of sin. Only the Blood of Jesus, can cure this problem, but, no one wants to hear it. With the Blood of Jesus being the X factor,
the correct algebraic formula for our problems is sin + X = righteousness[blessing].
