We must stop our lying.


God has His way! Posted by Picasa

Na 1:3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.   

It won't do to continue to deceive ourselves. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus is a consuming fire, according to Hebrews 11. We have seen the power of the fire on 9-11. We have seen the whirlwind on our southern coast. Will we also see the shaking of the earth, the plague, war and desolation? We must immediately stop our lying if we are to survive.

We must stop lying to ourselves that all men worship the same God. That idea came from the imaginations of wicked men, not from the Scripture.

We must stop lying to ourselves that God will not judge the earth in righteousness and will bring wrath upon all those who worship idols.

7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity. --Psalm 94:7-11

We must stop lying to ourselves that we can build a good natiion by pretending that all men are good and have the well-being of others at heart. This is to make the good prey to the wicked. Those who turn evil into good and those who turn good into evil are both an abomination to the Creator.

We must stop lying to ourselves that there is no wise and good Creator who made all things; yes, even penguins, George Will. Though they don't convince you of intelligent design, that just proves your apostate intelligence.

We must stop lying and slandering to gain political power. The wicked use arrows to hurt and maim [ Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. --Psalm 64:2-4]

We must stop lying about God, that He has had nothing to do with the tragedies that come to men: “Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.” (La 2:14 AV) The prophets of Israel did not call the people to repentance but dreamed up false reasons for their troubles.

We must stop lying about the Church of Jesus Christ, as if He died on the cross to make people rich, to entertain people, to make them feel good, to fleece people of their money. We must chase the false prophets from our churches and seek those who preach the gospel and call men to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
18 For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
18 For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. --Jeremiah 23:16-19

We must stop lying about the state, as if it can solve all our problems and overcome the sins and inquitites that spread across over our nation.

We must stop our lying about the proper use of war, punishment, and capital punishment, as if God has not spoken and is a sissy like we are.

We must stop lying about sodomy, adultery, fornication, and other perversities and iniqutiies, as if the Creator had not spoken very clearly concerning them. We must turn to the God who created the woman for the man and blessed that union as a figure of Christ and His church.

We must stop lying about Christ as if those who deny Him can be blessed of God, for the Scripture is plain, "If any man love not the Lord Jesus, let him be anathema."

Pr 14:5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

8 ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. --1John 1:8-10
