Did you ever hear someone say, something like “I don’t fear God, my God is a loving kind, god.” They say, “their god will forgive them no matter what they do, for he forgives all.” These very same people seem to ignore the real words of God and change them to mean what they want to believe. Psalms 66:16, “ Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.” People seem to think God is not paying attention to their actions in this world, their iniquity. The sin they commit, the thoughts they allow in their minds and never rebuke themselves for such ideas. The delight in the behavior of those who are engaging in the very actions they know is iniquity. Turning the eyes to the pleasure of sin allows them to participate in any debauchery and not fear God.
Ecclesiastes 8:12, “Though a sinner do evil a hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:”
Over and over, we are told to fear God. Not because he is cruel and unkind, not because he will not forgive, not because he is evil. It is because man is evil, and God tells a man to do good, but most do evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
Here it is in back and white for those who cannot seem to understand what God is telling humanity. None of us is righteous, but we can try and be righteous. What does that mean, simple see sin for what it is and do not engage in it? The problem lies in the hearts and minds of humanity. People want to be wanton, commit debauchery, commit sexual immorality. Even outright perversion is the new normal.
As the world turns from God, as people move away from God, they lose their balance of reality. You see it all around you as it is happening right now. Doctors and Nations and Government bodies and the general public saying things like homosexuality is normal. Really! Indeed there would be no human race at all if homosexuality was normal. Where would the babies have come from if women never slept with men and men slept with women? There would-be zero population growth and the human race would have died out long ago. Transgender, Trans-humanism, the desire to be something you are not. When people have no fear of God, their minds are weak and are easily seduced into perversion and debauchery. Abnormal behavior that is pushing them further from God with each act of iniquity they commit.
Where are the men who fear God? Do they still exist? Why are their voices not heard in the churches? Why are they looked down upon as fools of the highest order by the church leaders of today? If there is no fear of God. Then there is no love of God. It is all smoke and mirrors.
People believe there God will forgive all that they do if they will only accept Jesus as their savior. You rebuke the words of Jesus. “Sin no more,” Jesus told the women caught committing adultery. For all those self-righteous people who would throw the first stone to begin the death sentence to those who you judge unjustly. “He that is without sin cast the first stone.” No clear message has ever been spoken to humanity. Which of us is worthy to judge anyone else for moral mistakes.
Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” There are many examples of the believers in God telling humanity over and over and over to fear God. For he is the one who can kill your flesh and your soul. For those who continue to believe their God will forgive anything they do, you may want to consider that sin of any kind, even the smallest sin is evil in the eyes of God.
Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”
When man continues to deny God, he has no fear of God and is never seeking God out. Then the man is doomed to his own misery. Denying the word of God will be the death of millions who refuse to repent of their own evil deeds and have no fear of God.
“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” Husbands and wives, submitting to the will of God. Male and female is the true reality of the unity of two into one. Loving and bringing forth children to the earth. Like the seeds of the herbs to replenish the earth with children who love and fear God because we believe his words and his testament to truth and knowledge and wisdom.
Just as the child brings home a report card with a bad grade on it, the child knows the father will bring down wrath upon the child for not living up to the standard set. So to will, God looks at our sin and grade us. Most all of us will fail this test, so repenting and believing the words of Jesus, trusting in faith and the mercy of a forgiving God who only wants his children to come home and be with him.
Where are the men who fear God? They are speaking to you now. Calling on all to open their eyes out of slumber and repent for all have sinned in the eyes of God and not one man or woman is righteous in the eyes of God.
