Separation From Sin
Separation From Sin
Come out from among them and be ye separate said the Lord! We cannot carry Godís Word with trash and foolishness attached to us. We have to loose some things, even some friends. Anything or anyone that will cause you to sin we must depart from it before it utterly destroys us.
Proverbs 6:16-18 these six things God hate yea seven are an abomination unto him. A proud look, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood. A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations and feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among the brethren.
Disrespecting the call of God will cause separation from God because sin abides. Separation from sin is mandated for the child of God. We have been called to righteousness and obedience. How can we teach do not sin and we yet sin? God calls for separation from sin to every believer, man, woman, boy and girl.
Many are called but a few are chosen. We need to become more lovable, we need the fullness of Godís love which is unconditional. Godís agape love is fearless love. The fullness of the Word of God is the only true love. It tells us about our self rather we like it or not. God has given a call to man in one point or another that we must keep. When we disobey Godís Word and know it we totally disrespect the call of God. What this means is we must come into ta greater knowledge of Godís love. We are all called to be what we came in this world to be, male or female. Today this the greatest and most disrespected call man has forsaken. We have lost our way.
Paul in Ephesians 3:14-17 said for this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your heart by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love. One day Paul had to fall in love with Christ. He realized that he was in no condition to disrespect the call of God. When we would respect the call and order of God we will find that our love is made perfect that we may have boldness on and in the Day of Judgment. There is no fear in love for the perfect love of God that we have respected now will cause us to have no fear of that day when torment comes.
Job asked the question in Job 4:17 is mortal man more just than; God? Shall a man be more pure than his maker? The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord. We know that we shall not live by bread alone; but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God. God made man a little lower than the angels; crowned him with glory and honor and set man over the works of his hands.
The Man is a being made in Godís image and capable of knowing God and returning His love. Man is Godís choice to lead all of mankind will have to testify one day and confess that Jesus is the Son of God and was sent to redeem him back to right relationship with the Father. When man does net respect the call God has given him first spiritually then naturally the love of God does not dwell in him. God has given man a call to come in fellowship with Him, have fellowship with a wife that he gave man as a helpmeet, reproduce after his own kind and love their neighbors as themselves. Man has been given a call to love as God loves, have love one to another for love is of God and every one that loves is born of God and knows God.
The Woman because she came out of man is in a position of inferiority to man, manís helper and companion. She is Godís choice for man to wife that they may reproduce and replenish the earth. It is a call that was never to be a painful one, but because of disobedience the curse of pain was made. Man and woman disobeyed, Eve was beguiled and Adam stood by and let happen what God had forbid them to do. He was supposed to knock the serpent dead for talking to her. Or even knock the fruit out of her hand. We can still today see that this same order of disobedience is prevalent in the earth. Women talk too much and men wonít speak up when they need to speak. Women are recognized as making valuable contributions to the good of man. The beauty of life and service of women in the world is best noted in her service to God and man in order. Women have an important role in the life of man in that she is used by God as a receiver and giver of life. She reproduces life in the world.
God gave to Man and Woman Sanctified Sexuality that life would be reproduced in the earth and He called them parents. Parents are those that bring forth children in the earth. It takes a seed of a man and an egg of a woman to connect and create a new life and we call that new life a child, male or female, boy or girl at birth. This is the respect we show God and enjoy fulfilling when we are in obedience to this call. Why do we play games with our sexuality? Sexuality is Godís difference he put between a man and woman when he separated the one into two. God is the Creator of all of mankind, the Father of all. Women are special to God and when in complete obedience to the call we are awesome.
The Parents and Children are loved by God and God takes delight in them. The parents are called to train up the children in the way they should go; and when they are old, what they were taught will never depart from their minds rather they obey the instructions or not. Children will grow and teach their children, calling their parents blessed. We all have a call to God. The call of a parent is a blessing and shows God favor upon us. We as parents expect that our children will attend to our words and incline their ears to what we have taught them. We are to keep a close watch on the children and show them much love with chastisement and constructive correction. As parents we must realize that children are life to us and health to our lives. We now have to also teach them of spiritual things as well as the natural. We must teach them the ways and the Commandments of God.
Even a child is known by his doings; whether his work is pure, and whether it is right but we have to walk in the integrity of God. Children are to obey their parents; hear the instruction of the father and forsake not the law of the mother. Children incline your ear unto wisdom and apply your heart to understanding. The father to the children shall make known the truth. Parents are to tell their children and their children are to tell their children. Instructions are to continue from generation to generation and this is why it has to be perfectly planted in the heart of the children. Whatís in the heart will proceed out of the mouth at the time of teaching. Fathers are to lay up in store for their children and not the children for the fathers. Fathers are not to provoke their children to wrath but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. When a father will provoke their children to anger it discourages them. We are to provide their need as God has provided for us since the beginning. I Timothy 5:8 says that if any provide not for his own and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
As Christians we must learn to be steadfast and unmovable in Christ Jesus. My hurt is fixed, wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of the times and strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is our treasure.
I Corinthians 15:58 therefore my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. Paul admonishes us to stand in what we believe to be right in Christ. Donít be so easily moved by people or things in this world. Donít get weary in well doing.
II Thessalonian 2:15 therefore brethren stand fast and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word or by our epistle. God is faithful who establishes us and keep us from evil. Letís hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
