“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.” Matthew 6:1-2.
We often see the alms of the social gospel organizations, the apostate church, on the local news. These are the same organizations that do more civic work than they do kingdom work. They have mistaken God’s mercy and grace as Him condoning their sin. Because of this deceit, they believe any conviction of sin is condemnation and will quickly defend their sin saying their sins are forgiven; past, present and future. Our sins are forgiven when we ask the Lord to forgive us with a repentive heart….but we must repent.
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.
These are the fake luminaries of the world. They shine the light on themselves and their organization…they preach another gospel and are accursed. “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8-9.
Recognize the alms done before man by the fake luminaries and come out from among them. Be “determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2.
