Sermon 140 – My Feelings are My Law

Modern society and church believe that God is a god of unconditional love and not judgement, except against those who are bad. As long as you’re good, God will be good to you. As long as you’re good, no one has the right to say anything that hurts your feelings.

I’ve asked Christians … do you believe that climate change is a sign of God’s warning for condoning and legalising sin. Routinely, the reply is NO. Most citizens believe that climate change is just a natural phenomenon due to greenhouse gases and planet mismanagement.

But, what if the mis-management is the consequence of our sinful choices?

In our society we run by laws. If you break the law there are consequences. The fear of these consequences restricts us from disobeying these laws.

So, how come God is not allowed to punish for breaking his laws?

If there is a God, then He runs His kingdom by laws, too. If you respect His laws, everything’s fine (and that doesn’t mean that evil won’t rise up against you). However, if you deliberately disobey His laws, of course there should be consequences.

Isaiah 24:5,6 … the earth is defiled by the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the LAWS, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore, the curse has devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate.

The homosexuals are dictating the laws. Fairness is only seen from their point of view.

How come homosexuals are allowed to offend my feelings with their public mardi-gra parades, but Christians aren’t allowed to view their thoughts and opinions in public or even in private? In Australia, Israel Falou was publicly derided for speaking his views in the privacy of his own church. If you stand up for your beliefs without even deliberate offence and it hurts the feelings of the majority, you get fired from your job.

It’s all about money + control + sexual perversions

Sexual perversion is called ‘love’ by the perverted. God calls it ‘hate of his laws so you can do what you like’.

The reality is, the people with the money and hatred of God, are ruling the laws, and, although we don’t like China’s human-rights’ abuses we still trade with them for the benefit of our own selfish lifestyles. It’s all about money and control.

Hurt feelings is the new old law

Everyone suffers hurt feelings, and everyone outside the kingdom of God runs on their hurt feelings. Once you listen to your feelings instead of denying your ‘self’ and choosing instead to obey the laws of God, your feelings will become your truth, you become your own physician and self-diagnose your own spiritual condition, tell people what’s right and wrong, judge and blame people for hurting your feelings, and live for not being told what to do. Effectively, there is no sin as far as you’re concerned (see Judges 17:6, 18:7), but in reality, it’s just one big selfish mood and rebellion against the inhibition of God’s inconvenient laws, and in defiance you give yourself the right for your sexual perversions, like everyone else is doing.

Citizens of the British Commonwealth were given the special privilege of learning and knowing about the true God, and their lifestyles have been blessed accordingly. They were taught to respect God, but they’ve turned their backs and chosen their feelings, and blamed God for the mess and injustices. The fault lies with the people’s indifference, and not with God.

Excuses

Just because the Catholic Church has hidden its paedophiles doesn’t mean that God is evil. Don’t blame God for men using God to abuse children. Blame Satan. Oh, so often, people use others’ sin as an excuse to turn against God. Others’ sin should drive you to search for the true God, not the church’s fake god. You have the Bible. You’re responsible to search out the truth for yourself.

What about God’s feelings?

I was discussing the behaviour and attitude of a young Christian woman who had decided to apologise for hurting someone’s feelings. After a period of intense discussion, I suggested that she was just lying to herself to make herself feel better and that it wasn’t true repentance.

In the light of God’s laws, and not her hurt feelings, the real truth was …

… she put her feelings before God’s feelings (Law 1)

… she coveted others’ popularity and ability and favour, especially with one’s father (Law 10)

… she disrespected and dishonoured her parents’ instructions. She went behind her parents’ back and wouldn’t be told what to do (Law 5)

… she committed fornication (Law 7)

… she hated her brother without just cause (Law 6)

… she lied to protect her deceptive situation (Law 9)

Choosing to deliberately break these laws = the character of Satan, not Christ.

The laws of God restrict our lusts and lead us in the right paths. Once you follow your own lusts, the real issue is you won’t conform to His laws, which means you won’t be told what’s right or wrong by God. Thus, you set yourself up as your own god and make your own laws based on your feelings, so you can do what you want.

It’s not our feelings that is the issue, it’s God’s feelings that you’ve offended.

Demons always play the game of FEAR

If God is love and there is no fear in love (1 John 4:18), then fear does not come from God. The Chinese Communists intimidate you with the fear of what you might lose if you don’t comply with their demands. The homosexual movement intimidates you with the same spirit of fear. The origin of their fear is Satan.

Homosexuals were given the legal right to marry, but they also want the right to mock and intimidate anyone who voices an opposing opinion. How come you can’t say anything against them but they can say things against you? The silent majority are being dictated to by Satanic fear, and the excuse of evil, is … if you hurt us, then we have the right to hurt you. It’s all about retribution and rights; there’s nothing about sin.

Conclusion

Life isn’t fair and hurt feelings are real, and of course, it’s not appropriate to deliberately hurt someone’s feelings without just cause, but, it certainly is appropriate to hurt the feelings of those who are sinning against God’s laws, no matter how good they think they are (see John 6:61). The real issue is, not feelings, but LAW. Once you devalue the ten commandments of God and turn your back and choose your hurt feelings as your base of evaluation, the society becomes degraded, and then the land becomes degraded. The droughts and fires across our land are not the farmers’ fault, it’s the city’s fault. It’s the fault of any society that trusted God and then turned their back on Him, devalued His laws, and let sin rise up.

If man is as clever as he thinks he is, then create life from nothing. Until he can do that, don’t dare tell God that He doesn’t exist, or that He’s the problem. The consequences could be devastating.

Sermon 114 – Christ vs Anti-Christ

I was standing next to a lady in our fellowship and began to feel uncomfortable. When I thought upon it, I could sense a disturbance in her spirit. Her outward appearance portrayed a smile and an ease that suggested she was fine but my spirit was saying otherwise. I tried to ignore it but the Spirit in me wouldn’t let it go. So, I asked her what was troubling her. Of course she said “nothing”, but I pushed a bit further. Finally, she admitted that she was hearing a voice that I, as the pastor, was going to make her do something she didn’t want to do.

Now, the thought that I was going to tell her to do a certain thing, had never crossed my mind. Having experienced this many times, I realised I was talking to an opposing spirit. She was a Christian but somewhere she had opened her heart to the demonic and was absorbed with what she might be told to do. She hadn’t stopped to evaluate why she was wallowing in her carnal imaginations. The real fact was that she was the one telling me not to tell her. “Telling” with resistant defiance, is the sign of a demon.

The signs and symptoms

The sign that you are under the spirit of anti-Christ is always … I don’t want to be told what to do, or, you can’t tell me what to do = TELLING. If a righteous authority instructs or corrects you in the Word of God and you say “I don’t like that”, then you are not opposing the authority, you are opposing God, and actually TELLING God how to behave. This opposition can only come from the spirit of anti-Christ. This is the whole reason why society and schools are teaching people to dream what you want and do what you want. The real agenda is not freedom, but to sway people from the rule of Christ.

The real question is … how did she get there?

The answer is always … pride. Pride opens the door to an anti-Christ spirit and gives it licence to manipulate your thinking away from the mind of Christ. This lady is a Christian, but like all of us, if you listen to the voice of pride you will fall to the voices of your carnal imaginations and unwittingly be on the opposing side to Christ. The whole strategy of Satan is to sway your mind away from Christ to yourself.

Biblical examples

King Saul was a Christian who allowed his envy and pride to block his mind against God and ended up opposing righteous David, losing his mind to Satan, and being possessed by a demon.

Judas served Christ as a disciple, was empowered by the Holy Spirit to do signs and wonders, yet allowed his envy and pride to twist his mind against the Saviour, and ended up possessed by Satan.

Samson was empowered by the Holy Spirit, yet let his pride drive him to whoredom in direct contradiction to God’s instructions, and almost lost his soul to hell.

Abram obeyed the instruction of God to kill his only son, without resistance, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Thus, even though he had human weaknesses, he became the father of faith.

David was a Spirit-filled Christian, yet he came under the influence of an anti-Christ spirit when he allowed his pride to suck him into adultery and even murder. When he was corrected by Nathan the prophet he repented and was freed from the demon’s power, unlike king Saul who was only really interested in what others thought of him.

If God’s Word says … do this, but you don’t do it, even though you pretend to, then you are serving the will of the anti-Christ.

In other words, if someone gives you an instruction that conforms to the Word of God and even though you might agree with it but you resist that instruction in your heart, you will unwittingly be in opposition to Christ and thus automatically supporting the camp of the anti-Christ. If you don’t wake up to this, eventually the demon will wholly possess your thinking. You will lose your mind and your salvation.

The real issue

I went on to challenge this lady as to where she had opened the door of pride. She said she didn’t believe she had. I insisted she write it down, and not just try and think it out. It wasn’t long before she realised she had elevated herself over a compliment I had given her about being willing to suffer for the name of Christ. I pointed out that the real issue is never the thoughts or imaginations, nor is it what we fear may happen, nor is it even our pride. Rather, the real issue is …. Christ vs anti-Christ. When you do the opposite to what Christ says, you are supporting the enemy of Christ, and that’s the real issue … which side are you supporting?

Escape

There’s only one way to escape the hold of pride and that is … repent. Trying to work through your imaginations is a waste of time. Repentance of our pride is the only solution against the anti-Christ. Repentance is bringing Christ back into His rightful position in our spirit.

If you can’t get past consistent voices that promote your pride, then it means there’s something in your heart that you won’t give up to God’s will.

Homosexual debate

In Australia, the right of gay marriage is being hotly contested. The real issue hasn’t got anything to do with marriage equality. The real issue is GOD. The real issue is … people hate God because He won’t do what they want, because they want the freedom to sin the way they want. If you don’t want to obey God’s laws, then the easiest solution is to believe there’s no God. Then you can do what you like. This is just the spirit of anti-Christ.

You can argue that the issue is fairness and love equality, but that’s just a lie of Satan. True love is not selfish, neither is it a feeling, it’s an action, and the action of true love is to do what God wants … “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” It’s the action of respect to the Creator to keep His commandments that displays our love. The feelings follow the action. Without the act of obedience, anyone’s love is really the feelings of defiance to God; it’s the fake selfish love of the spirit of anti-Christ.

God is love. Homosexuality is anti-God. Therefore, it is not love but sin and evil. Homosexuality is actually a reaction of hatred against God. Therefore, it is actually Satanic hatred of love under the guise of fairness and equality.

Another experience

A young girl asked her dad for permission to have a kitten. Her father said yes, but first I want you to learn to stop being ‘bossy.’ The girl had a mood of polite silence. When she was confronted about her mood, she replied … “you don’t understand”. Once someone has a mood and then states … “you don’t understand”, then you immediately know you’re up against a demon. If the instruction to the child is based on God’s Word, then any resistance to that instruction is in direct opposition to God. This is the spirit of anti-Christ.

I prayed against the demonic power and sought the Father’s wisdom. With her dad’s permission, I stepped in and pointed out to the child that the issue isn’t a kitten, nor is it sin, nor is it lack of understanding. The real issue is, you’re encapsulated by a demonic spirit as evidenced by the fact that, as the Word of God confirms, your father told you what to do and you won’t do it. Demons oppose God.

If I, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, tell you what to do, and you defy that instruction in your heart, then you are supporting the camp of the anti-Christ. If you support the camp of anti-Christ, then you are being controlled by a demon or demons. God doesn’t defy Himself, demons do. The young girl had her eyes opened, repented of her stubbornness, was freed from the power of a demon, and completely changed her attitude to one of respect and not silent co-operative defiance.

For though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down IMAGINATIONS and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of God.  2 Corinthians 10: 3-6

 

May God open the eyes of His remnant to see the demonic powers of opposition to His Spirit.
