The signs of the end times are joined to the escalating deterioration of the morality of humankind. Our moral compass no longer exists and our diseased Sin nature is out of control as evidenced by our impurity and debauchery; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, and the like.
God’s Word speaks of humankind’s sin nature at the end gone wild expressing itself by the following list in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10:
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, 10 thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God.
To the Believer that is reading this: do you think that you are above all this moral chaos? Think again. Many of us act like them in so many ways. Often people that do not know your Lord, question whether we do; simply because they do not see any difference between them and us.
How often do we dive into the sewage thinking it doesn’t stick to us?
God made us to exhibit love to one another in joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. He says the acts of sin are obvious and that those who live like that will not inherit the Kingdom of God. If you are a true believer then you have REPENTED and turned 180 degrees from the path of Sin you have been on. You are a new person…you have changed.
Maybe it’s time for you and I to realize what the Holiness of God is really about. Maybe it’s time for you and I to begin respecting His Words in the Book He gave to us called the HOLY Scriptures.
Have you ever given any thought to the tears He will wipe from your eyes? Why are you and I going to be crying before Him? Maybe because as hard as I tried, the motives of my heart are always tinged with pride. Maybe because in my own way I too have Mocked God by trying to blend into the sewage around me like a Chameleon?
Maybe because I haven’t taken His command to share the Gospel serious enough and He will show me the hundreds of times I could have made a difference in someone’s life by planting a seed for the Holy Spirit to water.
I will stand before Him and use words to give an account of the life He gave me to live out before HIM. He will then give an account of the times He had given me words to speak, but I chose to remain silent.
To my shame my life is full of words never spoken. Words that were meant to give life by planting seeds into the hearts of people that God put into my path. Thousands upon thousands of words never spoken have filled my memory with If Only Moments. Only God knows the answer to “what If I…obeyed and spoke”.
In the end when we stand before HIM and HE wipes the tears from our eyes; the lesson we will learn is that our lives will be measured not only by what we did, but also by what we did not do.
I know I am weak and I know I am not Holy. But, I also know He said my weaknesses will show His strength if I look to Him for help.
If you feel the need to… then ask Him to help you match up your walk with your talk …I have.
