“Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” (emphasis added) Ephesians 4:29-32 NASB

Hoping you have a wonderful day walking with the LORD.

“19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.” Galatians 5:19-26 NASB

Far too man people today are depending on wishful thinking rather that truth when it comes to their eternal life. We have folks living openly in many of the things mentioned in this passage, yet believing that they will go to Heaven when they die. Profanity, immorality (including fornication and adultery), pornography, abortions, lying, cheating, stealing and various other blatant acts of sin.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such WERE some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” (emphasis added) 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB

You see, the Word of God makes it crystal clear that when one is born again their lifestyles change to match their new position as children of God. If a person continues in sin, it is a clear indication that they are not born again and still in their sins.

The Apostle Paul feared this for the Corinthian church, when he wrote…

“Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you — unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5 NASB

We have all taken final exams that are crucial to our semester grade, and we pray that we did not FAIL the test. Well, this test will have eternal consequences if we fail. After we die, there are no make-up tests or pleading with the teacher to give us grace. To fail the test here is to seal our doom in the Lake of Fire forever.

This issue is truly as serious as a heart attack.

Let the Word instruct you in how to pass this test.

Romans 3:23; 6:23; 5:8; 10:8-10, 13 are the Cliff Notes on this test, and makes it clear what God requires for sinners to become saints of God.

When we are born again God fills us the Holy Spirit and changes our desires from sinful things to things that will honor Him. This is living a life of righteousness.

In closing, a reminder of how much God wants all people to PASS this test.

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for ANY to perish but for ALL to come to repentance.” (emphasis added) 2 Peter 3:9 NASB

There should not even be a question of allowing ANY man into women’s bathrooms. This is nothing short of giving an open door to rapists and pedophiles. It is time to take a strong stand against this insanity, NOW! These people have lobbied congress for years to lower the age of consent so that these sex crazed people can have sex with children with no consequences. There is a move now to declare pedophiles as a SEXUAL ORIENTATION. Talk about Sodom and Gomorrah right here in our midst. When will the pastors and churches of America grab this bull by the horns and put it back in the pen? I know that there are pastors and churches who have done so but they are far too few.

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 NASB

I wonder what the Apostle Paul would say about this insanity. I wonder what Jesus would say. I have no doubt that they would stop this violation of privacy and common decency.
