The internet has created new challenges for the believer in Christ and the rest of the unsaved population. It has created new crime dynamics and new outlets for secret sin to abound. There is so much filth and Godliness on the internet that you can find yourself swimming in either one very quickly on timelines on twitter, facebook and random internet searches for information. Christians and Satan alike has made his voice, pictures, lies, & truth known. So many opinions and so many truth tellers along with the perpetual liars. What should the Christian do?
Woe to the world for the causes of sin. These stumbling blocks must come, but woe to the man through whom they come! If your hand or your foot causes you to fall into sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than to have two hands and two feet and be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to fall into sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell (Matthew 18:7-9).
The thing that causes you to live in perpetual sin against the commands of God must be removed from your life. If you fail to remove them from your life, you are in grave danger of God saying,
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23).
God is serious about us keeping His commands. If we fail to repent, God will take your candlestick, your light, and you will live in darkness, waiting for hell.
Your body comes with a predisposition for sinning. The fall in the Garden of Eden ruined the original genetic code for mankind. Sin corrupted the bloodline. Now running through your flesh is a demonic code that can only be eradicated by a new blood line, by faith through Jesus Christ. Once you receive the Savior, which is Christ the Lord, you still live in the old bloodline. Spiritually, you have been made new, hence a desire to live for Jesus and the awareness of heaven and hell. Unfortunately, death is inevitable as God specifically told Adam the tree in the midst of the garden would kill him, if he chose to eat of the fruit of that tree. He chose to eat the fruit of that tree.
Paul, comes along after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and tells us to “fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses (1 Timothy 6:12). This is the only prescription we have to ensure our salvation. Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).
The wrath of God is coming on the children of disobedience. We cannot win against our flesh without a direct assault against our flesh by spending time soaking in the presence of God and being busy doing the Fathers business. Being saved is work. Making sure you make it to the end is going to be difficult.
Can you handle the truth?
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14).
“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to (Luke 13:24).
You should be. There are things in the darkness that desire to kill you. Darkness overshadows the light and drains the life out of its subjects. You may have heard that heaven and God is full of light. The reason for this is simple. Light gives give life. Light gives vision. Light gives direction.
Hell is full of darkness. Hell impedes vision. Hell creates confusion. Hell is in direct opposition to light. Hell is for those who love darkness.
Before you run from this blog understand that darkness has power and the fear of the Lord is wisdom. I said, what may seem strange to some that one should be afraid of the dark and you may say, but the Bible says fear not.
Unfounded fear should never be a Christian’s disposition. Unfounded fear is fear that God will abandon and forsake you. Unfounded fear is man’s ability to separate you from God. Unfounded fear is the devils ability to overcome the Holy Spirit.
Founded fear should be a Christian’s disposition. Fearing God’s ability to cast your soul into hell. Fearing God’s wrath to those who disobey and curse him in unbelief and action. Fearing God is just plain smart. He alone has the ability to save you.
