“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1st John 4:8)
The epitome of a false prophet is not that God is love, it is that God is only love, it is not that it is His overriding attribute, it is that love is His only attribute.
We have been watching this occur for several decades now, this false worshipping of a god that does not exist, one in whom all are not only welcome but accepted just as they are with no need to alter their persona in anyway. The words “racist” and “bigot” are the common vernacular today, but soon it will change to haters, to those who will not express love to all no matter who they are or how they have chosen to live their lives.
Thousands of illegal aliens crossing nation’s borders to seek, what is claimed, a better life or to flee the despots who rule their nation. To not welcome them, all of them, is to be branded a hater, one who does not know or refuses to show unmitigated love.
Sodomites openly declaring their sin, to speak against them is not showing love, the love of the god the generalized population have created for themselves.
Those who serve the Living God, those who stand on the Rock of our salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ, are branded as the worst of the lot, for the masses say we serve a God of hatred, of harsh rules, of unbreakable, old-fashioned laws, and so they have made a golden calf for themselves.
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:” (Exodus 32:7)
Satan has deceived many with perhaps the most ingenious and devious plan yet, causing even some of those who profess to know the Living God to believe that all are to be loved and accepted, that they have the right to chose how they will live their lives and it does not matter what path they have chosen, we are to love them.
Subtlety at its finest.
One word of rebuke, one reproof, one statement that even in the smallest of ways can be interpreted as judgmental, and you are automatically found guilty of being non-loving.
My friends, if you are going to stand for Christ, it is going to cost you something, if you are not willing to stand for the Lord our God then it will cost you more.
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:32)
If you are not willing to speak the truth in love to that individual that stands in your path about their choices in this life, I would not be concerned with battling against that Spiritual darkness in high places. Soldiers are trained before they are sent to the battlefield, small skirmishes prepare us for great conflicts.
This god they are serving does not exist, there is no condemnation of their actions, there is no judgment upon them for their deeds, they are free to be all they desire to be, for they are loved as they are. There is no need to repent to their god, no need to serve him for he was designed to serve them.
“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” (Gal. 4:16)
Love thy neighbor, no matter what, or we will not only not love you, but we will persecute you.
Prepare yourselves accordingly.
You have a decision to make, and that decision may cost you everything in this life, you may be made an example of to cause others to fear, to submit to this false god of love. Or you can stand for the One who offers true love.
The decision will be yours to make.
