It was John Wesley, who said: “Before I preach love, mercy, and grace, I must preach sin, Law, and judgment”. This holiness preacher whose great works for the Lord very many of us are still benefitting from today after many centuries is an example of believer we should listen to. These and others like him labored earnestly to erect proper structures (as it were) on the foundation of the Apostles.
Today’s satanic concept of grace or love that says we should not say anything of sin, works of darkness, darkness of this world and the resultant eternal damnation and which is being championed by many in so-called pulpits is the number one game plan of Satan and Illuminati to kill the Church of Christ and turn indescribable multitude into hell. But we know Satan can’t cause us all to be turned into hell because the foundation of Christ stands very sure and the Lord knows those that are His, which He has also told us are few, for few are they that walk on the path that leads to eternity with God, the path eschewing and void of sin, works of darkness and darkness of this world, these which some don’t want us to talk about. O what an age! And, of course, what a task we must employ ourselves into to tell our various corners the truth.
For now, talk about sin, expose Satan and they would say you are condemning and that grace does not condemn. And thus the accuser of the brethren before God and who always wrest Scriptures whether in the wilderness with the Lord Jesus Christ or with whoever would always invoke ‘one-sided Scripture’, without “precept upon precept or a little here and a little there”; that is, without bringing all sides of the truth into one whole truth, this being the age-long way Satan wrests Scriptures and gives to flesh of men just that they want to hear. O itching ears that would not endure sound doctrine but turning away their ears from the truth and being turned unto fables! Truly, this is the age thus expressly referred in Scriptures (2Timothy 4: 1-5). But each of the Seven Churches of Revelation had a command to repent, including the Laodicean Church, the seemingly corresponding Church, of the Seven Churches, to our Church age.
What is grace?
Titus 2:11-15: “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things SPEAK, and EXHORT, and REBUKE WITH ALL AUTHORITY. Let no man despise thee” (caps. are mine).
Look up and see those things that grace not only appeared to us teaching us but that we are also commanded to speak, exhort, and rebuke WITH ALL AUTHORITY viz. “Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world”. Dare do this in our age, and you are ‘condemning’? Thus they despise all of this command, the message and doers and carriers of this message, cause of itching ears that will not endure sound doctrine.
Look up still at that Scripture and, again, see those things that grace this time not only appeared to us to help us look to but also commands us to first look to and then to speak, exhort, and rebuke WITH ALL AUTHORITY viz. “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” Dare inspire the pew accordingly then you must be ‘condemning’. Thus they despise all of this command, the message and doers and carriers of this message, cause of itching ears that will not endure sound doctrine.
In Ephesians 5:11 we read: “And HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, but rather REPROVE them” (caps. are mine). Do just this today, and you will be tagged ‘condemner’, and one who don’t understand grace and who don’t know what love is about. Hence, fables, fleshly and social gospel (which is no gospel) are the order of the day today because that is just how Satan and Illuminati wants it.
But all who knows why grace appeared to us all will take this charge seriously: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” – 2 Timothy 4:1-5 (caps are mine). This our time is that time. This is that age.
Dare obey the Holy Spirit as charged in 2Timothy 4: 1-5, and Illuminati and those with their message would say you are condemning and even doing hate speech, and may even go ahead to lecture you that grace and love abhors that, as if they know grace and love more than John the Baptist, Jesus Christ Himself, Peter, Paul and others, who all Rebuke and Exhorted men to turn away from sin, works of darkness and darkness of this world, and who all Reproved or Exposed works of darkness.
What Satan is simply doing is that he on the one hand is wickedly into his deadly schemes and promoting darkness as never before because his days are short and on the other hand raising up men (the Illuminati way) not only in government but in our pulpits to tell us not to be talking about that darkness so that more and more multitude of men can plunge in fast and quick into the eternal condemnation ordinarily meant for only him and his demons. But sin, works of darkness and darkness of this world shall have no hiding place as long as there are still few salts of the earth and lights of the world around in this dark world. As long as Jesus still has His plantings on this side of eternity, their lights will always call sin, works of darkness by their names, so that some may come to His Light.
So, like Wesley and other true saints of God before and after him “Before I preach love, mercy, and grace, I must preach sin, Law, and judgment”. This age must preach the Bible and consign to hell this hell-sponsored Illuminati gospel that want to dilute, extinguish everything around the Cross of Jesus Christ and sound doctrine, and make the Church like the world.
All religions talk about love. Even Islam that I hear don’t have the word ‘love’ in their book even once say Islam is a religion of love. Every man out there talks about love, and grace is in their lexicon too. But you really cannot talk of love let alone do justice to it as a subject matter without talking about sin and judgment. It is sin and judgment that necessitated God’s grace and love, which the Cross of Jesus is about, and therefore the demand of the Cross on the sinner firstly to genuinely give over his sins over to Christ Who takes them over in continuity of His love and secondly for this forgiven or saved sinner to hold on to righteousness and walk in all holiness by His grace. These two cannot be glossed over (handled lightly let alone omitted altogether) or given secondary place, “for shall we continue in sin that grace should abound? God forbid!”
So, ‘before ‘love’ and ‘after love’ comes the subject matter of sin: Firstly, on how to get rid of it through repentance and forgiveness (grace), and secondly, on how to remain so through obedience to the Word! And what is obedience to the Word if not the fear of God the beginning of wisdom! And what is the fear of God if not keeping away from sin and doing God’s will (righteousness).
‘Talk all the so-called love in the whole world’ in the pulpit without the subject matter of sin and judgment and you have succeeded in deceiving yourself and tickling pink the fancy of men and up the tithe and offerings. It is all game of itching ears and vanity because it is the fasted message from our pulpits that closes the eyes fastest, delude the heart fastest and leads fastest to hell.
And on ‘grace’ we may add conclusively that there is an extent to which you treat grace and it operates the law right there. Jesus operated thus with Judas, with the Scribes and Pharisees, Capernaum, Bethsaida, Jerusalem and the other cities that got His ‘woes’, and the fig tree too, and shall operate the law on the day of judgment. Peter operated thus: Ask Ananias, Saphirra and Simon the Sorcerer. Paul operated thus: Ask Alexander the Coppersmith and Elymas the Sorcerer. However, grace does not always operate this way. But it certainly ALWAYS hit at sin, rebuke unrighteousness, reprove (or expose) iniquity and works of darkness. That is the first side of grace missing today in many a pulpit, and Satan and Illuminati are behind this.
