“Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 13:47-50.
I’m going to try my best to not make this a long post, simply because I know more of you read the shorter posts (understandably so) and I want as many as possible to read this. To everyone who says “no one has it all right” or rationalizes and condones the false teachers who infiltrate the air ways, I want you to read this passage of scripture with the church in mind. The seeker friendly church, the psychology gospel church, the purpose driven church has placed human opinion above the Divine directive to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the world. They mistake God’s Grace and Mercy for condoning of sin and therefore mourn but do not repent of sin. Their mourning will consist of a ritual of penitence without any change of heart.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3.
There are things said in the Bible of the Kingdom of God that cannot be spoken of the kingdom of heaven. The kingdom of heaven has tares in it now but one cannot see the Kingdom of God unless he be born again. The angels will sever the wicked from among the just. “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24.
The flesh and the world will pervert the Gospel of Jesus so it appears they too will fit through the eye of the needle but know this, there are tares among us. While we are condoning the false teachers because they have “some of it right”, we are sitting back and allowing these same false teachers to lead a generation of Christians into spiritual adultery. They will never know the power of God because the Cross of Christ has never been preached to them for deliverance but only methods of man taught. Their sin nature will continue to reign in their hearts because their faith is in those methods for deliverance and not in Jesus Christ and Him crucified. They will be tares who will be severed. Good intentions and sincerity does not overrule Divine directions….”For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:17-18. If preaching the Cross is foolishness to the Saint for Salvation and sanctification, they do not know the power of God and they are perishing. Preach Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, not human opinion.
So much for keeping it short….God bless! -Donna Clark Warren
