Changing Times and Laws
“And the beast shall intend to change times and laws”. Daniel 7:25c.
One of the potent weapons the Devil is unleashing at this last day is, corruption of the ways and words of God. He is striving to turn upside down, laid down divine principles, statutes, commands and instructions. He is striving to lure people into disobeying God, and obeying the corrupted and contrary ways of His. One of such laws, the Devil has corrupted is the issue of sex.
Sex: The Natural vs the Unnatural. Of recent, there have been controversies surrounding the issue on homosexuality. Even, believers are unable to take unanimous stand against this evil. Some are for, and some, against. Even, when the Bible have provided answers to it.
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination”. Leviticus 18:22. In the New Testament, Romans 1:18-32 gave a clear and uncontroversial answer to Homosexuality. I wonder where the gray areas are, that have made the issue unresolvable by Christians.
The Devil has given men futile thoughts and darkened their hearts to commit abominations. The new teaching is “Freedom”, free to indulge in any conduct that one desires. According to the New Age Movement, there is no sin, no hell, no devil and no law. They teach that the world is under grace, and nothing exist as punishment.
Yet, Apostle Paul says: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not!. How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it”. Romans 6:1-2. Children of God, are children of light, but sin is darkness. And every darkness should be submerged and overwhelmed by the light.
Why should men and women be inflamed with lust with people of the same sex? Why must we indulge in what the Bible refers to as; unnatural (Romans 1:26), indecent (Romans 1:27), perversion (Romans 1:27), foolishness (Romans 1:21-22), idolatry (Romans 1:23), a lie (Romans 1:25), shameful lust (Romans 1:25), degradation (Romans 1:25) and death (Romans 1:32)? It can’t be natural for any man or woman to clearly see a pit and willingly fall into it. It is not possible. Only the Devil can fool someone into doing such. Be wise.
Marriage: Natural Union vs Unnatural Union. The second law, the Devil is changing, is that of marriage. The Bible recognizes a legal union to be that of a man and woman. Even in all countries, the law stipulates same. But, of recent, the law have been changed by the manipulator, and many countries are changing their laws to conform with that of the Devil.
Men are now marrying fellow men, and women, fellow women. This act is fast gaining ground in the United States. Many cities have passed it into law, and others are about following suit. According to Romans 1:25, this act is a shameful lust, and regarded as degradation of the human race. Animals, in their foolishness have not ventured into such. We have to be warned. This act, brought to extinction, the city of Sodom and Gomorrah, and will soon destroy the world.
Gay Ministers: The third law is, the ordination of Gay Priest. Perpetrators of evil are now standing like colossus in Gods temple, administering communion, prayers, sermons and all other services required of Ministers. The Bible is specific about the qualities of God’s Ministers in 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:5-9: There is no place where “Homosexuals” were included.
Infact, God is holy, and there is no way a homosexual will administer holy things, because, already, he is an abomination before God. This act, is the trick of the Devil to infiltrate the Church hierarchy and destroy it. Already, the Anglicans worldwide are divided, the Lutherans have joined suit, and many Churches are at the verge of disintegrating because of this abomination. I thank God, there are still voices against it. “The gates of hell shall not prevail”.
Male Headship vs Women Liberation: The fourth law, being attacked by the Devil is the one, guiding the institution of marriage. Marriages of this generation have suffered more fatal attack than ever. The tension in homes, the war of the sexes in homes and violation of divine principles have grown to heaven height and calls for concern. In every five marriages, three are broken. Why?
Wives are now fighting for equality and supremacy with their Husbands. Law and order have broken down irreparably, that one wonders why the sudden fragility in the institution of marriage. God who instituted marriage from the onset had a purpose. He made woman for man, for a purpose. “It is not good that man should be alone, I will make him a helper comparable to him”. Genesis 2:18. He made the woman from the side of man, to be next to man. If God had wanted women to be on top, he would have made them from the head. And in His word in Genesis 3:16. “Your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you”.
Apostle Paul confirms mans headship in 1 Corinthians 11: 3. “But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ. The head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God”. Ephesians 5:23. “For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is the head of the Church…………” Colossians 3:18, Wives, submit to your own husbands as is fitting in the Lord”. God’s position on women, does not express inferiority, rather the need to ensure orderliness in homes. God commands this on women, irrespective of one’s social, economic, academic or physical status. He only desires your obedience.
Of recent, the Devil has re-defined headship to be economic ability of any of the spouses. This is false. In Mali 2009, a group of learned Muslim women sent a bill to their Parliament, to declare, that men and women are equal in marriage and that, women should be given right to disobey their husband’s at will”. Devil’s gimmick.
The women, having acquired education, wants to use it against divine order. Don’t get me wrong. Rulership and Headship of men should not be that of autocracy and dictatorship. Women have rights as partners in marriage, and must be considered in every issue pertaining the home. But, the man remains the head.
Permanence vs Divorce in Marriage: Another source of attack on marriages, is the issue of “Permanence”. In the institution of Marriage, God declared permanence. “………………. Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate”. Matthew 19:6. “For the Lord God of Israel says: That He hates divorce………….” Malachi 2:16.. “Now to the married, I command, yet not I but the Lord. A wife is not to depart from her husband. And if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife”. 1 Corinthians 7:10-11.
The union between man and woman according to divine command is “Permanence” “No Separation” Till death do us part”. This is God’s way.
Now, the Devil have re-defined and changed marriage laws to that of “marriage for convenience alone” “For better for us”. “He has described marriage as, a contract of convenience, and that, at any slightest discomfort, separation is allowed”.
He has successfully corrupted the minds of couples with pleasures, worldliness, social beliefs and so much lust. These, now dictate to spouses what to do in their marriages, disregarding the word of God. Marriage is “For better for Worse”. If not so, Adam would have divorced Eve for causing so much pain in his life.
If we also realize how much pain and heartache. we, individually cause God. If He decides to divorce us, that will be doom for us. But, God treats us with love, enduring our foolishness, waywardness and disobedience, bearing with us like prodigal sons and daughters, until we come back to our senses.
What has your spouse done to you, that you have not done hundred folds against God? When you consider this, then you realize the need to obey God, irrespective of the cross one needs to carry.
Another gimmick Devil sells to divorces are, you can go on with your life, get a boyfriend or remarry”. Unfortunately, this is a violation of divine order. “But even if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband” 1 Corinthians 7:11. “A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes only in the Lord” 1 Corinthians 7:39. “Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 1 Corinthians 7:27.
“But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman, who is divorced commits adultery”. Matthew 5:32.
The conditions provided for divorcees are humanly difficult. According to the scripture stated once divorced, no remarriage. Having a sexual relationship with a divorced woman is adultery, and to the woman,she is guilty of defilement. This proves that indeed, heaven rejects divorce in totality.
We must be advised, that our passage through the world requires lots of sacrifice on our part. We should be ready to make those sacrifices as required in our life, marriages, career and ministry. With prayers and focus on Christ, we shall weather any storm. It is better to obey God in pains, than to obey Satan in pleasure. Be wise.
Dressing: Dressing is an area the Devil has scored a high mark, especially with the women. Women have thrown their values and virtues into the trash can. They now listen and obey the dictates of Devil through demonic clothings, exposing all the sensual areas of the human body and dragging themselves and many men to hell.
The gimmick sold to them by the Devil is, “I own my body, I can do whatever I like with it”. “If you have it flaunt it” and so on. Depravity! Ignorance!! And Foolishness!!!.
The Bible says: “Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are?”
1 Corinthians 3:16.
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?. For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
Our God has declared in His words, that we belong to Him. The body we claim is ours, is not ours, but God’s. Therefore, we are to glorify God with it. Flaunting and exposing your bodies is a violation of divine law.
Because of God’s ownership of our bodies, he declared that our dressings must be DECENT, MODEST, PROPRIETY with GOOD DEEDS AND MODERATION and proper for those professing godliness and good works. 1 Timothy 2:9-10. Anything contrary to God’s word is demonic. Dressing to show off your boobs, laps, public areas, anus and cleavages are current demonic effort to counter Gods law. So we must be careful and be wise.
Sound Doctrine: The greatest attack of the Devil is targeted at God’s word. He understands the potency of knowledge hence, his interest in distorting the truth of the gospel to derail many.
Apostle Paul wrote; “Now the spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons”. 1 Timothy 4:1,
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires because they have itching ears, they will heap for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside the fables”. 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
Indeed, Apostle Paul’s prophecy is coming to pass in this generation. With the current feel good theologies making rounds and the bread and butter gospel being dished out by our Ministers. There is no doubt the fulfillment of the prophecy. T
he message today is lust. How to make money, how to become billionaires overnight and all what not. To the extent, we have Ministers that claim they possess anointing to make billionaires. Is that Gods mandate as well?. “While the scripture warns us not to lust, our Ministers are increasing our appetite for lust, 1 John 2:15-17.
The trend of teaching have brought the rat race of the world into the Church, increased envy and worldly competition, increased crime, rituals, fraud, cultism, drug peddling and other evils. Because, the belief is that “your amount of wealth determines the presence of God and His blessings upon one’s life”.
While the Scripture is saying “godliness with contentment is much gain”.
1 Timothy 6:6. Our Ministers are saying otherwise, using inciting and deceiving words to lure people away from the truth of God.
The Scripture says: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and every other things shall be added unto you” Matthew 6:33. The Devil says otherwise, “Seek ye the added things and later the Kingdom of God”. Corruption!
The Shepherds have turned the house of God to a money spinning arena. The richest, takes it all environment. A place where the poor are despised and oppressed. Is this the Church of Christ? Definitely no!, Savage wolves have come upon the flock of God and devouring them without mercy (Acts 20:29).
Our Ministers have increased our gullibility and quest for easy life. They have held us captive with flavored and spiced messages dragging us far away from the Kingdom Christ preached to us. The blame is on the followership, who refuse to study the Scripture, who are only vast in reading gossip and fashion news, instead of studying the word. Yes, they are to blame.
The truth is that we have only one gospel; “Repent and be saved”. The gospel of Salvation, the Kingdom focused gospel and not the lust focused message. Flee from perverted gospel. Anyone preaching or receiving a perverted gospel is accursed. Galatians 1:6-9. Beloved, the world and its lust, is passing away – don’t pass away with it. Life is precious than silver and gold. “What shall it profit you to gain the world and lose your soul in hell”. Matthew 16:26. Be wise.Read more on this in my ebook catalogue of the last days
