MORAL PERVERSION IS THE SUBSTITUTE TEACHER!
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 6:20).
For those of us who have attended school from grades one through twelve. Can you remember what would happen when your official teacher was absent? Well, I remember we would get a substitute teacher. Most of the time this meant it was time for recess! The substitute teacher did not know the official teacher’s lesson plan. Also, the substitute teacher did not know the students’ level of intellect! Therefore, the substitute teacher would just babysitter the class for that period. Meanwhile, we would do what we would not normally do in the presence of our official teacher. Sometimes the class would get out of hand, not me of course; and the substitute teacher could not govern or control the rowdy students in the class. The bullies would start picking on other students, and everything went downhill. This is the same principle applied to Moral Perversion is the Substitute Teacher. In the absence of God and godly teaching in our society, we now have a substitute teacher named SIN. This evil demonic spirit is corrupting everything possible that was once called holy. Nevertheless, God sent a warning to SIN. “Woe unto them”, who are bulling the righteous and dismissing the holiness of Almighty God! Those who are practicing Moral Perversion because they believe the Official and Supreme God is absent, Consequently, they will be condemned to deepest parts of hell! “But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man is called a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or an railer, or a drunkard or an extortioner; with such an one not to eat.” (I Cor. 5:11).
It is true that each generation gets worse than the last! I believe whomever or whatever is at the head of a thing, so the body will be! If a nation leadership is governed by SIN, we can only expect a predominately sinful nation. If the head is sinful, then sin gradually makes its way into many parts of the body. The moral principles of God, which were once the laws that we were governed and lived by, are now forgotten. Today, Moral Perversion has swept over many nations, and has siege the righteousness of God by the throat; and is holding goodness hostage! Evil is demonstrating hostility toward those who fight to honor God. Evil demands respect and acceptance, where goodness once held the crown! Immorality, in its viciousness, dares righteousness to sneer at SIN. Hateful threats are hurled by those who embrace evil; and maliciousness is the song sung by those who love the world and all its lust.
Bitterness stands firm in SIN and defies sweetness to flirt with it. Thereby, assuring sweetness it will yield to bitterness’ authority or be destroyed! How dare sweetness, confront bitterness with the truth and the light of God! The bitterness of immorality is bullying the sweetness of godliness into a corner of despair, to conceal its perversion of ungodly ethics! The once sweetness of the truth is now called a cruel liar, and an enemy to the world. When the sweetness of God’s word is spoken to those who believe a lie. They draw back their fist in hate and swings at godly love to knock it out. The greater sweetness is, the more the devil concentrates on destroying it from without or within. The devil wants to divert the light of God!
The truth of God cannot be isolated by moral perversion. The of Light of God shines through the darkness, no matter how dark the moral perversion is. Darkness is the substitute for light; and the victims of darkness will never learn anything. The devil is babysitting the lost souls, while they grow greater in their sins. The substitute teacher is still going to get paid, whether the students learn or not! Sin brings in souls to the devil, and he is filling hell up by bushels. The students of darkness believe it a good thing that the Official Teacher is absence from them. Unfortunately, this is the greatest misconception the students of darkness have. They forgot, the Official Teacher is the one who gives the final mark, “Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure, have this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ, depart from iniquity.” (II Timothy 2:19).
Those who love to live in SIN, are not willing to deny themselves, and take up their cross daily and follow the God of Light. They love their idolatry, sexual sins and materialism. They love it when the substitute teacher is babysitting. They want to feel pious in their moral perversion. Therefore, the devil is busy serving up “Religious Stew” to the multitudes by appealing to the lust of the flesh. He uses mysticism for the spirit; intellectualism for the mind; idols to appeal to the eyes and lies as his seasoning! There are a variety of SINS on the devil’s menu; and the world is eating them up and denying Jesus Christ. The basic recipe of moral perversion is bondage, torment and eternal damnation! The Official Teacher is Jehovah God, the master of every soul! I don’t care for substitute teachers. I want to be taught by the Master of my Soul! Moral Perversion is the Substitute Teacher! The Spirit of the Living God is the Official Teacher of the Righteous in Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen!
For the record, this is written to call the lost to repentance and the backslider back to God! God bless you and amen!
