NO CONDENSED GOSPEL HERE!
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the world. No, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. I came to set sons against their fathers, daughters against their mothers, daughters-in-laws against their mothers-in-laws, your worst enemies will be members of your own family.” (Matthew 10:34-36) (GNB).
Have you ever seen cockroaches when the lights come on? Or mice when the lights come on? If not, you are truly blessed not to have seen this awful sight! But for those of us who have seen this mass exodus from the light, it is horrifying! These filthy invaders are violating our domain and defiling our precious goods. They leave their waste and ruin that must be fully sterilized! Some people buy over the counter temporary restraining products to rid their homes of these noisome invaders. Unfortunately, these trespassers return after the initial impact of the product is over. On the other hand, the more determined people call an exterminator to get rid of these germ-carrying menaces. Jesus was determined and committed to separate the children of light from the children of darkness, though they be family. Jesus turned on the spiritual light in the hearts of God’s chosen people. The light revealed the darkness in family members who refuse to confess their sins and repent! We keep trying mend family relationships, when Jesus came to separate us! He did not condense his words or his earthly mission because “It’s My Family”. No, Jesus came with the untainted truth of his Father. He did not preach an abbreviated version of the truth! In his steps, I will not shrink from the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am determined not minimize the Gospel to have friends or followers of darkness! I will preach and teach the light of Jesus so that the cockroaches and the mice will fled from the righteous! I’m weary of these phonies preaching about counterfeit love and peace! Jesus came to separate and you will find NO CONDENSED GOSPEL HERE!
Jesus himself had to deal with the matter of family. He didn’t toy with them because they were his family. For the record, Jesus had brothers and sisters! “And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and they brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, say, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked around about them which sat about them, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” (Mark 3:32-35). (KJV). (Read Matthew 13:55-56 to know Jesus had brothers and sisters). In Matthew 13, Jesus is singled out from his brothers and sisters because he was different from them. His brothers and sisters blended with the community, Jesus did not! Jesus congregated with those who believed in the words that his Father gave him to preach to the world. As Christians were must surround ourselves with people who walk in the light and stop compromising with darkness to keep a false peace! We have family members who do not walk with God. Some family members have a form of godliness, but we know they are walking in darkness! “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (II Timothy 3:5).
On this next point I must use a spiritual sledge hammer to crack open the denying spirit! THERE WILL BE NO TRUE WORLD PEACE UNTIL JESUS SECOND-COMING! Pray for people to repent! True world peace is not going to happen in this generation! Please read Matthew 24 and see what is coming saints! Yes, there will be a false peace for three and a half years: (Read the prophecy in Daniel 9: 21-27). Also, in Jesus own words in Matthew 10 he said, “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the world. No, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Moreover, in John 17:9 Jesus is praying to his Father, “I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me: for they are thine.” Those who love darkness are worldly people, the world is God’s enemy and Satan is the prince of this world. Worldly people spirits are governed by Satan. Worldly people cannot read, hear or understand the pure word of God. This is the reason they run when the light of the Gospel is preached! I am not going to use sweet pacifying words to tell God’s truth! Every idle word that I may say can cost someone their eternal salvation; and I don’t want to stand accountable before God because I was afraid to lose family of friends! I will not be held accountable for anybody’s soul on the Day of Judgment; because I failed to preach and teach with power and conviction. It’s time to feed the body of Christ with uncontaminated spiritual truth and stop lullabying God’s people! These are times that will try men souls, so stop playing with peoples’ souls!
Praise the Lord Jesus did not conduct his ministry based on church attendance or the church board! There was not one condensed or abridged word in his preaching! If there were, they would have never crucified him my Lord! I say to those mega-church preachers, many of you are preaching compressed and cut-rate gospel to keep people in your church and marked for hell. These preachers are using over-the-counter remedies to get rid of sin. The self-help brand of preaching may help for a moment, but the sin is still there, and will be revealed in a grander way. What the church need to do is call the Exterminator of sin, and his name is Jesus! When the light of Jesus Christ comes into the heart the cockroaches and mice of sin will be destroyed. Jesus Christ is the slayer of sin through his precious blood. His blood is pure and spotless and is not condensed with any sin. For those who will scatter and leave the truth and run to a watered-down gospel. I pray that the light of Christ truly reaches you before it’s too late. Yes, you can shut down my posting, but I tell you, the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ will remain, and the judgement is sill coming! I can’t betray Christ for acceptance from cockroaches and mice of darkness; and that’s why there is NO CONDENSED GOSPEL HERE! I remain a child of the Most High God! Amen!
For the record, this blog was written in response to my God-fearing younger sister’s reply to a blog I posted recently. She thinks I am a firm, no non-sense Pastor; and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for posting that about me. I don’t play with God’s people it too dangerous! I pray that God bless all who take a true stand in firmness and in truth, in Jesus name! Amen.
