Too many of our leaders and churches are preaching smooth messages today. Messages about the love of Jesus Christ, without the conviction of sin. Yes, they tell of the ‘love of God’, but have abandoned the Bible truth concerning victory over sin. The message given today from the pulpits produce no conviction of sin and appeals to the majority of the world these days.
Many preachers are now saying we cannot get the victory over sin and we will continue to sin until Jesus returns. This is a lie from the devil friends!
Preachers today: "Jesus loves everyone and we should love the world like Jesus did. Love, love, love! The end!
Full Bible truth: “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolaters, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” (Ephesians 5:1-5)
The problem is, there are TWO kinds of ‘love’. Love of self, that results in sin. And love of God, that results in obedience and righteousness. And the love that is preached in most churches today unfortunately, is love of self, not God. Hence why most people are still living lives of sin. Because sin is the result of loving self.
Many people are at ease today, thinking they need not gain the victory over the sin in their lives. They believe they need not make any effort in the cause of God’s kingdom. They sit down in calm expectation, thinking that God will protect them in the last days. And many are going to be shocked when the Lord returns!
“But God will not save us if we make no effort to do the work he has committed to our charge. We must be found faithfully at our posts, watching as valiant soldiers, lest Satan shall gain an advantage which it is our duty to prevent. We should diligently study the Word of God, and pray in faith that God will restrain the powers of darkness; for as yet the message has gone to comparatively few, and the world is to be lightened with its glory. The present truth regarding the Commandments of God and the faith of Jesus has not yet been sounded as it must be. There are many almost within the shadow of our own doors for whose salvation no personal effort has been made.” (Review and Herald, March 9, 1911)
All the churches of Babylon preach about the ‘love’ of God, without the conviction of sin, because Satan has deceived the leaders into accepting a false gospel. They reject the ‘everlasting gospel’ which is found all throughout the scriptures, which God’s remnant church is supposed to preach to the world according to Revelation 14:6
So why are the majority of God’s professed remnant churches also preaching the same ‘smooth’ messages as the churches of Babylon? Enough. This must stop!
Is the Bible not clear in the message it gives that we are to turn away from all sin? Is the spirit of prophecy also not clear that we are to ‘perfect’ our characters through the indwelling of Jesus Christ ready for the last days? Well, let’s confirm the truth.
1 Peter 2:21-22. 1 John 5:14. John 8:10-11.
Important note: Our ‘keeping the Commandments’ is NOT of ourselves. Our keeping the Commandments is a result of walking in the love of Christ and allowing Him, by His Spirit, to dwell in us and change us.
So many people love to hold onto the words that Jesus spoke to the woman caught in adultery … “neither do I condemn thee.” … which reveals the love and mercy of God. But they ignore the clear instruction Jesus also attached to that statement … “SIN NO MORE.” … You see, if the woman went away and continued living a life of sin, then grace of God would no longer cover her. She would be lost in her sins. But the grace of God would still cover her if she went away and turned away from sin and lived a life following Jesus. This is why Jesus told her … and the man … to sin no more. Now don’t get me wrong. We all have stumbled in sin AFTER coming to Christ. I am not saying you won’t stumble now and again while you grow in faith. And God will forgive you if you repent. But the problem I’m talking about is the belief that we cannot stop sinning. As this goes against the Word of God.
Do you see? There is no condemnation for those who do not continue in sin.
