Sermon 149 – WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?

Do we really expect God to turn a blind eye?

Call ‘evil’ good (Malachi 2:17)

We abort our babies and call it women’s rights instead of murder, but all that happens when you legalise abortions is you end up getting more and more murders in your society.

We legalise divorce and allow marriages to break their oath to God, and all we end up getting is people preferring to live in selfish flexibility with options to leave and try another relationship. No one calls it adultery anymore; it’s just an affair or a fling. We turn a blind eye to adultery and all we end up getting is everyone neighing after their neighbour’s wife (Ezekiel 33:26).

Legalising evil just breeds selfishness

Everyone enters a relationship to get something for themselves. No one enters to serve and honour the other partner. Consequently, relationships fall apart simply because of the selfishness of demanding that the other person is responsible to make me happy.

Humanism doesn’t teach moral responsibility, it teaches self-choice moral flexibility

Christians have allowed humanism to manipulate the excuse of the immorality of the false church and the government’s lack of concern for our environment, so it can remove the Bible from our schools and let their humanistic teachers train our youth to defy the boundaries, hate God, and to be their own boss, and all we end up getting is disrespect of authority, rebellion, appeasing themselves with alcohol and drugs to dull their pain of lostness and loneliness, and full-body tattoos with African ear-lobe rings.

Feelings guide our judgments

We’re more worried about hurt feelings than honouring the law of God. Consequently, we call it love to legalise homosexuality in direct contravention of God’s law. In so doing we ignorantly announce that evil is now good and thus make a mockery of God who is the true and only ‘good’. When you legally remove the right for an adult to calmly smack a child when that child is defiant and disrespectful (Proverbs 29:15), all you’ll end up with is the child ruling over the adult (Isaiah 3:4,5)

Sabbath defilement

We don’t think twice about merchandising and sporting with the world on God’s holy sabbath instead of respecting it as a day of rest from interfacing with the world. God calls it being ‘partial in the law’, Malachi 2:9

Sin defiles the land

Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed … Ezekiel 33:29.

God has been trying to get the Christian world’s attention that sin defiles the land, but the western world has blinded itself by its compromise and tolerance of sin. Man is made from the dust of the earth, so what man does directly affects the planet. Righteousness prospers the planet, sin decays it. Climate change is simply the consequences of man’s sin. Corona virus is simply the consequences of man’s sin.

The safe boundaries of God’s laws have been shifted so far out their alignment, we no longer can see the wrong of our sinfulness, preferring to justify our behaviour and secret thinking as acceptable under God’s grace.

Hypocrisy

We’re happy to stand against the authority and protest for Black Lives Matter, but we’re not happy to be told to stop our promiscuity and sexual perversions, our lust for violent videos, our lusts for fun and partying, our rights to be whatever gender we want, and our rights to determine who we are and who we want to be. We’re not happy to be told to self-isolate, besides humanism has indoctrinated our youth to believe the authorities are evil so why should they listen. The sad thing is that once the authorities bow to the will of a sinful society, they are no longer worthy to be believed.

No man can serve two masters

If you don’t serve God, you’ll end up serving your lusts, and if you serve your lusts, you’ll reap the consequences. God promises that lust-worship will get droughts, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, financial ruin, foreign ownership, and ultimately, foreign control.

No one believes in God anymore. Everyone blames Him for the mess.

The western world thinks it’s Christian, but everyone knows that it’s turned its back against God, so God is raising up the eastern ungodly world to teach the western world a lesson, but sadly, our sin has blinded us to our arrogance, and in our arrogance we think we’ll be able to protect our lands and our lifestyle. God is slow to inflict punishment, so man thinks he’s getting away with it.

It’s an irony that satanic communism is an ungodly regime that won’t tolerate homosexuality, or pornography, satanic music, rebellion, or drugs, but our god-based system will. We’ve lost the plot.

We may have put down Islamic State but there’s a far worse ungodly system rearing its scorpion tail.

It’s blatantly obvious that communist China is coming for us, but at the rate we’re defending our sin, our resources will be famished and our resistance will be a joke.

We love sin

There’s only one solution … say we’re wrong and reverse the curse (2 Chronicles 7:14). Humble ourselves by coming back in line with God’s ten commandments. It’s up to the church to lead the world. Stop the violent videos, block the promiscuous sexual tv programmes, reverse the laws of homosexuality, stop the evil sex-change operations and abortions, and cease importing foreign gods with their graven images (John 14:6), but I fear we’ve adapted to the love of sin to such an extent we won’t listen to see.

People have learnt to excuse their behaviour, instead of saying “I’m wrong”. People have learnt to criticise others’ sin but can’t see they’re wrong about their own. It’s easy to blame someone for hurting your feelings and making you do something wrong, but few if any, take responsibility for doing that wrong. As soon as you say ‘everybody else does that so what’s wrong with it’ you’ve diverted your sin from yourself. People say they trust the Lord, but you cannot if you won’t trust Him with your sin.

God’s moral laws aren’t a bondage, they save you from the consequences of sin

All we’re generating from our sin is just more and worse rape, paedophilia, child sex perversions, more road rage, more home invasions, more domestic violence, more bullying, more mental health decay, more homelessness, more suicides, more gambling addiction, more drug addiction, hospital rage, sex-trafficking, more drought, and fires, murder, more climate decay, and economic disasters with debts that we will never be able to repay. What have we gained by legalising evil?

Our sin is sucking the money out of our societies

In our sin and our lust for pleasure and fun and lifestyle we’ve sold off our country’s assets to foreign entities and sacrificed our independence to foreign companies. We’re spending billions on drought-relief, military build-up, mental health, domestic violence, and our over-crowded hospitals. We want China’s cheap imported goods, but ignore that we’re supporting an evil society that crushes human justice, and on top of that, we’ve allowed our own manufacturing industries to retract to such an extent that we are dependent on foreign supply, and haven’t even got systems in place to rapidly provide masks, respirators and protective equipment to safeguard our medical staff.

The world has changed for the worse

Covid-19 has changed the world, yet no public figure is saying it’s the consequences of our sin. You are what you eat … eat violence on tv and videos, you’ll breed violence in society. If you promote free sex on tv, you’ll get free sex in society and grow sex-trafficking and child sex-abuse and paedophilia even in the church.

If you feed on satanic music, you’ll get satanic minds and mosh pits. If you declare sex-change as good and normal, all you’ll end up getting is identity-confusion, family dysfunction and dissolution, and drug addicted youth trying to escape the torment.

Defaming God by comparing all religions as equal only earns God’s wrath and punishment

If you contaminate your land with anti-Christ mosques and statues to Buddha and bring all manner of foreign gods into our Christian society, you’ll end up worshiping the gods of the Asians, and get the demons of Asia and the diseases of Asia and the destructive forces of nature that hit Asia. Mixing religions never works; it only generates envy, racism and dissent.

Economy over morality

If you promote homosexuality on tv, you’ll change the God-ordained normal into a homosexual society and reap the consequences of Sodom and Pompeii, and history proves that If a society makes its political judgments based on money, then that society will reap financial decay, and become the servant to the lender.

We used to be Christian

Our forefathers stood for God and His principles, but prosperity has softened our under-belly and vexed us to believe that freedom is doing what we like without anyone telling me what to do, and without any consequences.

America’s bank notes are stamped with “in God we trust”, but it doesn’t. It loves its money.

Great Britain’s national anthem is … ‘God save the Queen’, yet the Queen, who attends church every Sunday, won’t speak out against her society defaming the laws of her God, and ends up condoning their sin by her silence.

In Australia, the national parliament opens with the Lord’s prayer, yet that same parliament ignorantly calls ‘evil’ godly by legalising homosexuality in direct defiance against God commands, and deliberately accepts every foreign and anti-god religion as society’s rights to selective freedom (I AM the Way, the Truth and The Life. No one comes to the Father but by ME … John 14:6).

When a society discards the principles of the Bible, it’ll get the principles of Satan … envy, greed, disrespect, violence, and hedonism. When a Christian-based society turns its back on God and degrades His laws with its own laws, then that society is bound for punishment, and if ignored, then destruction.

Christians are lights in the darkness

We should not be discouraged by the evil that’s growing around us (Proverbs 29:16). God warns us that society is going to deteriorate (Matthew 24:6-14), and evil will hate the righteous (Luke 21:17). Our eyes should be focused on Him, not the decay, but we should not be complacent about the decay.

 

May God sustain His remnant!

Sermon 99 – Stop BLAMING everybody else & REPENT

I was counselling a young woman who was brought up by God-fearing parents. Her grandmother was quite domineering and blunt and sometimes her own mother showed some of the grandmother’s characteristics. As a young girl she made choices of resistance to her grandmother’s attitude that would affect her whole future life. Instead of accepting her parent’s minor faults and appreciating that they were trying to instruct her in God’s ways and provide for her every need, she made inner choices of resistance against their love.

Freedom

Eventually, as she grew up, she became her own woman. Freedom to her was no one was going to tell her what to do. She ran away from home and entered the path of fornication and became pregnant. In love, her parents said she was welcome back, but only on the grounds of repentance, so she chose the easy path of living with her grandfather (her grandmother had now passed away). The grandfather believed he was doing the right thing by his granddaughter, but in reality, he was caring for her in defiance of his son-in-law. The grandfather pretended to be a nice Christian person because popularity was important to him, but he actually hated his son-in-law for his Godly stand.

Incorrigible

I suggested to this young woman that she had chosen to defy her parents, and that she was the one who had chosen to feel sorry for herself. I pointed out that she had chosen to blame everyone for her hurt feelings, but hadn’t considered the hurt and embarrassment she had caused to her parents. I emphasised that she was the one who had chosen the pathway of moodiness and the path of belief that everyone else were idiots if they didn’t see it her way. I made it quite clear that she was the one who had chosen the path of fornication and the path of unrepentance, but sadly she refused to listen. She refused to carry any responsibility for her sinful attitude. Her path was set. From her perspective she was doing ok by herself; why should she think otherwise, her grandfather was giving her everything she needed, but she was blind to the truth that she was sick in her spirit.

She knew enough scripture to quote “fathers provoke not your children to wrath”, but conveniently chose to ignore the verses before that which state “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honour your father and mother that it may be well with you,” Ephesians 6:1-3.

When I spoke with her parents they shared with me how the church had criticised them for their unloving attitude. I reassured them that their love was more genuine than the church. The modern church has chosen the path of least resistance; it doesn’t want a hassle or to look bad, thus it pretends to love by supporting the hurt, but pays no attention to the spirit behind the hurt. The grandfather had chosen the path of supporting his granddaughter’s evil and used it to prove that it was his son-in-law who was evil. He mocked his son-in-law’s moral ground. He had no idea that he had chosen the side of the demonic.

Other relatives could see that the parents were genuine people so they stayed neutral, but when the parents declined to attend family weddings if the young woman attended because they held to their Godly instructions, the family chose the young woman to attend in preference to the parents.

These are the two options of the false modern church; either sit in the middle when someone makes a moral Christ-like stand, or judge them for being harsh and unloving. Either position is earthly, sensual and demonic … James 3:15.

The issue is always authority

The prodigal’s father waited patiently for his son to wake up to his selfishness; he didn’t chase after him and persuade him to return to safety. He knew that one can’t live with defiance; the sinner has to repent and come under authority. The issue is always authority … like in the animal kingdom, the authority’s position is challenged by another’s position.

This woman’s grandfather had actually failed her by protecting her sin instead of letting God deal with it through failure and remorse.

The truth 

The truth is, this young woman said she was hurting and she used it to make everyone feel sad for her, but what she was really expressing was hatred towards authority, and those who have never seen their own disrespect of authority, fall for it.

Because of Adam and Eve’s defiance to God’s instruction, everyone is born with a spirit of defiance to authority. This defiance becomes our personal responsibility when we decide to be defiant to our parents. Everyone builds their life’s habits and beliefs around this defiance. We cover it with good deeds and convince ourselves we’re good, but fail to realise our inner self that God wants to save, is defiant.

Everyone I talk with has defied their parents either silently or openly. God lets this defiance run its course. A few people will wake up and see their sin and call out to God for His mercy and gain access to heaven. Most will remain defiant till they die, even if they see it, because the heart of man doesn’t like to be corrected and told it’s wrong, and it justifies and explains away any wrong by its self-assessed goodness. The truth is, the grandfather had never repented of his defiance to his own parents, and thus he carried his defiance into his relationship with his son-in-law, but it only exposed itself when his son-in-law stood up for God’s principles and it unbalanced and exposed the flaw in his own.

Adam and Eve show you what happens if you will look

What the human heart fails to understand is that standing up for your own rights with a heart of defiance puts you at the mercy of Satan’s control. You think you’re the one in control, but the truth is, like Adam and Eve, you’re ignorantly under the control of Satan. He’s pulling your chain and you just think you’re being unfairly treated. But the truth is, your heart is sick and you need a saviour.

Another example

I was also counselling a young man who had never done anything wrong, at least from his perspective. When an authority questioned him he simply and silently wrote off the authority as stupid. I asked him to recall an incident in his early childhood where he had defied his parents. He recalled being disciplined by his mother and in his heart saying “I will do what you say but you’re stupid and your rules are stupid”. The  young man agreed that correction hurt his feelings and he couldn’t understand it because he couldn’t agree with it. The truth was, he had chosen to hate authority without even knowing it because Satan had manipulated his feelings and thinking against authority. Without ever realising it, he had built his whole life on defiance and had covered it with good deeds and coolness so that he didn’t care what anyone else thought. What he didn’t realise was that he was under the influence of the demonic. He wasn’t in control like he thought he was. He was deceiving himself. In his heart of hearts though, he knew something was wrong, and when I exposed him to his defiance and his anti-Christ attitude of heart he owned his sin and repented. The demon lost its power.

Humanism

Why do you think modern education and modern society is teaching young people to stand up to authority and don’t let anyone tell you what to do. Humanism easily indoctrinates you to make up your own mind what’s right and wrong; sin likes that theory. Why is it teaching 5 year olds about sex? Why is it encouraging 7 year olds to have a sex change? Without a doubt, it’s to destroy Christ’s earth and Christ’s people. It’s to destroy the family and its Satan’s intent that if he’s going to hell then he’s going to take as many unwary people as possible with him. Satan is alive and well on planet earth and the church is letting it happen.

Until a person wakes up to their defiance they can never be saved no matter how much good they pour over it, because Jesus didn’t come to save you for being good, He came to save you for being a defiant sinner and set you free from Satan’s power that Satan initiated in the Garden over Adam and Eve and over all those that want to be their own god.

Sermon 24 – IN TWO MINDS

In Genesis chapter 3, Eve succumbed to the temptation to elevate her position above what God allocated to her. Once she took the carrot she gained the knowledge that she was naked, then in fear, hid from God, then lied about why, then blamed the serpent, whilst at the same time Adam blamed God for giving him the woman, and then blamed the woman for misleading him.

The pattern of sin was set from the beginning,

Sermon 8 – The Religion of HUMANISM

The two questions everybody eventually must ask themselves are Q. Where did I come from? And Q. Where do I go when I die?

Did we evolve from a single cell amoeba, from the atmosphere, or from animals?
