=========================================================================

ACTS 29 TODAY

coming to the knowledge of the TRUTH

=========================================================================

The root problem is THE DECLINE IN HUMAN CHARACTER CAUSED BY CORRUPTION FROM THE FALL. (THE SIN IN THE GARDEN)

ADAMSIN65b894ae4b49be75ab8a9138932dd8da

CORRUPTION IS PROGRESSIVE, WHEN A PIECE OF FRUIT BECOMES CORRUPT, IT IS IRREVERSIBLE….IT CAN B SLOWED DOWN, BY REFRIGERATION BUT IN THE END IT WILL PROGRESSES ALL THE WAY TO COMPLETE ROTTENNESS.

BY THE WAY THE PROCESS OF CORRUPTION IN FRUIT STARTS WHEN IT BECOMES DETACHED FROM THE SOURCE THAT GAVE IT LIFE.

IN THE GARDEN THE CORRUPTION STARTED WHEN ADAM AND EVE (NOT STEVE) WERE SEPARATED FROM ….GOD….THE SOURCE THAT GAVE THEM LIFE.

GODS ANSWER TO THIS CORRUPTION IS NOT TRYING TO SLOW IT DOWN, OR SOME HOW IMPROVE ON IT, OR TEACH IT THE GOLDEN RULE, OR SEND IT TO CHURCH, NO HIS ANSWER IS:)

A NEW CREATION (BEING BORN THE SECOND TIME BY THE SPIRIT)

THE 3 MAIN EVIL FORCES AT WORK, BEGIN WITH THE WORD… LOVE

LOVE OF SELF….LOVE OF MONEY….AND THEN MANY OTHER THINGS, AND AT THE END, THE LOVE OF PLEASURE.

THE LOVE OF SELF, AND THE LOVE OF MONEY, WILL LEAD TO THE LOVE OF PLEASURE, I WILL JUST GIVE MYSELF A GOOD TIME. I WILL JUST ENJOY MYSELF AND NOT BE CONCERNED ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE, I WILL JUST CARE FOR # 1.

but your flesh says..wow that would b nice

1ST TIMOTHY 6:10 For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves [through and through] with many sorrows.

SO ALL OF THE OTHER CHARACTER ISSUES LISTED IN 2ND TIMOTHY 3:3-5 ALL PROCEED OUT OF AND FROM…THE LOVE OF MONEY. IT IS VERY COMMON IN THE CHURCH TODAY, AND IF YOU LOVE $$ THEN YOU R A SLAVE TO MONEY.

because i am good soil, bla bla bla fleecing the sheep

 

WHEN YOU LOOK AROUND AT THE WORLD TODAY, YOU SEE:

LOVE OF SELF, LOVE OF MONEY, AND LOVE OF PLEASURE.

THAT IS THE ROOT PROBLEM AND…….. NOTHING..…..CAN RESOLVE THAT EXCEPT THE NEW CREATION.

THE …LOVE….OF MONEY, IS THE…..ROOT….OF ALL EVIL.(not money itself)

AND THE SOIL IN WHICH THAT ROOT GROWS IS.

THE LOVE OF SELF.

THAT IS THE REAL BASIC PROBLEM AND IS VERY LITTLE DEALT WITH IN THE PRESENT DAY CHURCH.

IN FACT MUCH OF WHAT IS BEING TAUGHT IN THE PRESENT DAY CHURCH IS DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE LOVE OF SELF, TO FEED THE LOVE OF SELF, TO NOURISH THE LOVE OF SELF,……….. YOUR BEST LIFE NOW. (I WILL HAVE MY BEST LIFE ………..LATER).

NOW THE SHOCKING THING TO ME, IS THAT ALL OF THESE THINGS LISTED…………………………[impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane, [and they will be] unloving [devoid of natural human affection, calloused and inhumane], irreconcilable, malicious gossips, devoid of self-control [intemperate, immoral], brutal, haters of good, traitors, reckless, conceited,

HERE PAUL IS NOT TALKING ABOUT THE HEATHEN PEOPLE HE IS TALKING ABOUT PROFESSING CHRISTIANS, BECAUSE HE PLAINLY SAYS:

THEY HAVE A FORM OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING ITS POWER.

WHAT IS ITS POWER? SPEAKING IN TONGUES? MIRACLES, GIFT’S, SIGNS AND WONDERS?

I LOVE ALL OF THOSE THINGS, BUT ALL OF THOSE THINGS CAN CO-EXIST WITH THE LOVE OF SELF.

pastors-wife-deacon-church-members

true story folks

THE POWER THAT DEALS WITH SELF LOVE,LOVE OF SELF IS.

THE CROSS

1ST CORINTHIANS 1:18 IT SAYS….For the message of the cross is foolishness [absurd and illogical] to those who are perishing and spiritually dead [because they reject it], but to us who are being saved [by God’s grace] it is [the manifestation of] the power of God.

NOTHING ELSE CAN DEAL WITH THE LOVE OF SELF BUT THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST APPLIED IN OUR LIVES.

the-crossimages

YOU CAN HAVE A FORM OF GODLINESS AND SPEAK IN TONGUES, YOU CAN HAVE A FORM OF GODLINESS AND BELIEVE AND EXPERIENCE MIRACLES, YOU CAN HAVE A FORM OF GODLINESS AND SAY MANY GOOD THINGS.

BUT ONE THING YOU CANNOT HAVE IS, A FORM OF GODLINESS AND A:

CRUCIFIXION OF SELF.

die-to-self

THAT IS THE DIVIDING LINE.

OK THAT’S ENOUGH TO CHEW ON FOR AWHILE.

NEXT TIME, DENY YOURSELF, TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW JESUS.

BLESSINGS TO ALL
