As I sat and listened to a friend and neighbor I heard God say who has bewitched the Church? Who has bewitched the people of God into thinking that they can believe a liar rather than a man that stand and say I canít beat the people and make them do right if God doesnít do it. I was surprised at what was coming out of their mouths.
Matthew 24:24 for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders insomuch that, if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect.
One said President Obama disappointed her because he allowed people to stay gay, be married, and others to sin. Well this is a problem God has been dealing with long before Barack Obama became President. I could not believe they had been hoodwinked by some preacher that said the President is responsible for all of the dysfunctional people in the world doing wrong.
Sin has been around; he is just as responsible in that case. Everybody that comes in his church is not saved, everybody in there including him with his self- righteousness is not saved. Its so sad that the preachers just now want to use the sin of the homosexuals and lesbians to make their case against our President. The Devil is a liar and they are too if they rather trust to believe a liar than the one that decides to stay out of people business.
Saints lets be real, we arenít perfect. If we were we wouldnít be striving. But the Devil is the father of lies; God is the Father of Truth. The truth is man make decisions in their lives to choose God or not and we canít make them. God gave them a choice since Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. We canít size up a man for someone else sin. Acts 10:34-35, 38 then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Od a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons; but in every nation he that feareth him and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power; who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Jesus came and walked among all kind of people that was in sin; he neither condemned them but said he that was without sin let them cast the first stone. They all disappeared. The Word has already judged sin and sin has its consequence. God has put an open door before man and given him a choice to walk in or stay out. The church has been bewitched to believe that one man can change the world of sin. Jesus came and man still sin; he was hung up on the Cross for our sin and we are still sinning.
Romans 10:8-10 but what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart; that is , the Word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Salvation is open to all that will believe; no man can make a man believe. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved; not if the President say we will put you in jail if you donít do things Godís way.
Godís Word is in His Church and if these deep rooted righteous people that judge the President, this is your job as preachers to bring the Word to the sinner that they may hear. Itís still up to them after they hear whether they will believe and receive or not. God called us out there to the sinner. We donít say anything, we have sexually perverted people around us and donít tell them of their sin. They are comfortable in our Church; why is this? So who are we to talk about the Stateís Statutes and the Federal Government endorsement of the State Statutes when we havenít done our job? You hypocrites, Lord have mercy upon your soul.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:22 and except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the electís sake those days shall be shortened. Church we are almost on our way to Hell. We are beginning to sound like the Scribes and Pharisees, the Chief Priests and Sadducees that worried about the law rather than God himself with the Word. Who has bewitched.
We are to make our own election sure; for the gospel came not unto us in Word only but also in power and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as you know what manner of men we are. If the sinner didnít hear Jesus and they donít hear us do you really think they are going to care what the President say? When we received the Word we received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God which effectually works in us that believes. We need to be established again and question our own salvation; we rather believe a liar than the truth? That is Satanic and we have been hoodwinked; bewitched!
For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile; but as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men but God, which tries the hearts of men. We are to entreat the President as an Elder; a Father and Leader with respect. We are to pray for our Government and officials. Any other way God will judge. This is a test of a manís heart; if it is a heart after God or not. This time we live in is for Godís purpose; he already knows the heart of man whether it is black or white. God already knows who will stay saved and who will fold over. God is a God of all people and when we go back to the times of slavery we have not been delivered. There is a changing of the hands and the only one that will lose is the Christian that accepts the lies of man rather than the choice of God.
