People Are Turning | Be Careful When It Comes To The People In Your Life

Psalm 1 verse 1 and 2 say blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked nor stands in the way of Sinners nor sits in the seat of scoffers but his Delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law he meditates day and night you are blessed when you don't sit and entertain scoffers don't sit with them or break bread with them of course do your Christian Duty which is to love all people and share the gospel of Christ but do not sit or get into a state of being relaxed when you are around a scoffer they will pull you down the dangerous thing about a scoffer is that their sole aim is to make you doubt they plant seeds of doubt that's their mission simply to spread doubt they want you to question everything about the Lord they want you to question first Thessalonians 4 17 which says then we who are alive who are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so we will always be with the Lord they want you to question Revelation 3 10. because you have kept my word about patient endurance I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world try those who dwell on the Earth they want you to question the word of God but we should resist such a person protect your faith protect yourself by not exposing yourself to people who purposely come to trip you up instead focus on living a life that is pure and pleasing to Jesus focus on doing all you can to put this flesh under subjection in fact the Bible tells us how to prepare for the coming of the Lord in second Peter chapter 3 verse 14 to 15. therefore beloved since you are waiting for these be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish and at peace and count the patience of Our Lord as salvation just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him we as children of God should be found spotless and blameless in peace that is inwardly calm with a sense of spiritual well-being and confidence having lived a life of obedience to him we're all comforted by the thought of God being eternally loving which he is we get that lovely warm feeling inside when we read of God being our Mighty protector our shield and defense he certainly is all of the above we love the fact that God is forever merciful he is kind and gracious however allow me to say this sternly God is not to be mocked oftentimes we can deliberately sin we can deliberately disobey all because we think that the nature of God His Kind nature we think that his nature will Overlook our wrongs however this is not the case God hates sin the Bible in Psalm 5 verse 4 says for you are not a God who Delights in wickedness evil may not dwell with you he is a God who doesn't Delight in sin he takes no pleasure from it that's why the wages of sin are death the Lord is too righteous and holy for sin to even be in his present he's he's too pure for that and so what happens when God gets angry what happens when people sin day after day and mock him what happens when people forget that the Bible says in Exodus 34 verse 14 for you shall worship no other God for the Lord whose name is jealous is a jealous God what strikes me about the children of Israel is that they were set free they were LED cared for and blessed by the Lord but yet still found a reason to complain their hearts were ungrateful and they sinned with their unthankful attitudes as they murmured and complained now the Bible reads in Numbers chapter 11 verse 1 and 2. and the people complained in the hearing of the Lord about their misfortunes and when the Lord heard it his anger was kindled and the fire of the Lord burned among them and consumed some outlying parts of the camp then the people cried out to Moses and Moses prayed to the Lord and the fire died down the decision to overlook the goodness of God led to an outpouring of his Wrath so you see God is loving but he is not to be mocked he is patient but he is not weak so we should not provoke him to anger you can't deceive him or think that you can pull a fast one on him he is omnipresent he is omniscient and all-knowing you see there is a lie that the devil tells us which I believe to be the biggest and the most dangerous lie that many people fall for and the LIE he tells you is you've got time you have got time and here's how the LIE is dressed up you've got time to repent so keep sinning you can get right with God later you've got time to keep living however you want you don't have to worry about God and turning your life around just yet do it tomorrow you've got time this is a lie that is so easy to believe because it's comfortable it lures us into a false sense of security to think that we can have our cake and eat it too it's a lie that many fall for because it doesn't require any action on our part it doesn't require us to change it doesn't require us to crucify the flesh but it does allow us to keep living life on our own terms without ever pausing to evaluate where we're headed it's a lie that tells us that we're free to chase money to chase power in relationships or anything we think will fulfill us but the reality is that at any given moment we are one second away from heaven or hell [Music] we need to always be mindful that what we do today what we do while we're here still alive and breathing will affect the Unseen World for us Matthew 6 verse 33 puts it this way but seek first the kingdom of God in his righteousness and all these things will be added to you we're being told to choose Jesus Christ in a world that is rejecting him we're being called to live a righteous life in a hostile world [Music]
