Compromise; Brings Confusion
Compromise: The Art Of Allowing Sin To Enter A Man, Church And Society. In The Name Of Love, Peace and Unity.
Part III Judgment A Gift From God
As I stated already; Because the fear of God is far from men the consequences of God is far from men. When the consequences of Gods judgment is far from men, the ears of men are deaf to rebuke, that has been sent by the Lord, through men.
For a man who will not judge an evil matter through prayer. Will then not use reasoning spiritually through prayer. Then he will side with his emotions and compromise to a point that what should have been judged, will become normal within a short time. In the man, church, and society.
I will prove my point. You want to stop sinning, I tell you, “Throw your television away.” and do not be entertained by this world.
I tell you, “The television is the mouth piece of the world, and is filled with the lies of hell.” The majority of people, will then stand up for some of the programs as good on the television.
I tell you, “That the television is filled with evil, and its commercials are a witness against Godliness.”
For the television to be accepted by men, at one time or another, it only took a few men to compromise by allowing more of the world into their hearts, homes and societies.
Just sixty years ago, people as a general rule would have not allowed, what is allowed today. I am speaking even about the heathens.
believe me, this came about by men not praying, and then they were taken away by their own emotions. In other words, they made a judgment through feelings of the flesh. And that judgment was to allow what was not allowable just a generation or two before their time.
My hope and prayer is that you will have nothing to do with the television or anything that is at enmity with God, because to compromise will lead to a lack of reasoning.
This is because I love you, and rebuke any man who loves sin. For God will not compromise when it comes to sin. Yet he will repent, if a man turns from sin. To not bring harm upon the man or whole city . Jeremiah 18:8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
My point being that until the body of Christ (the church) quits lusting after women as fish swim in water, and loving this world. We will never have an impact on the world. Because compromise has made us as the world.
When a man chooses to compromise, with the ways of sin. He losses the capability to be used by God to help transform people into the image of Christ.
For compromise makes men into the image of the flesh.
From one man to the whole body of the church: So long as men no longer fear God, God could even send a man to rebuke a man or men (by love, as long as the one rebuking is not doing the same sin.) and the man or men will not listen.
Do to a man being taught to compromise instead of using judgment, by reasoning through worshiping and prayer.
Compromise; Man’s Path
Compromise is practiced and taught to such a degree, that is has come to the point that a judgment could be said, “lusting is a sin that must be stopped in your life or your life is in great danger of the judgment of God.”
And nearly all men could reply with a thousand answers of chaff, and say, “who put you over us?” And God would even send another, and that brother can give a rebuke, and another can say, “do not judge, not unless you be judged.”
This is all due to compromise within the hearts of men.
I have just shared with you that lusting after women can bring the judgment of God, I believe this because I was in great error, under the belief that I could live like hell and go to heaven, for I compromised my own heart to lean towards evil, with a thousand excuses.
I will rest my case on this. I know what went through my mind when I lusted after women, and I know what goes through yours when any lifestyle of sin rules it. Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
If a man can live a lifestyle of sin and go to heaven, then any and all sins can go unchecked by any man. And this is now being practiced in many churches, to the point that men compromise on the subject of every evil thing under the sun.
I don’t know a man’s exact judgment by God, but I do know the fruits produced by such a mind, that live a lifestyle of coveting and lusting. Are they fit for the kingdom of God?
Compromise; Where Is The Mercy Of God And The Grace Of Christ.
Where is mercy, grace and the love of Christ, one may ask?
The question is where is the reverence for God, have we received Christ’s grace, to sin more, that more grace may be given, God forbid and where is obedience to Christ because of our love for Christ.
Has this already not been the case, let us take a good look within our own souls, and then a good look around the church of today. As I shared, when judgment by the spirit is not used in love, through correction, to bring shame, there will be no repentance or cleansing of the spirit.
The result is that the flesh will begin to discern what is good and evil instead of the spirit.
When good and evil are discerned by the flesh, men are quick to cover their sins with, the word of God and those that are like-minded. God is sure to judge such men. For mans sin will find him out.
My brother I have shared this with you, because many men will tell you many things but to stop lusting after women and loving this world.
Yet I share with you, do not compromise, start living for God. Then you will fell the grace of Jesus and the loving-kindness of God. For living as Christ will bring one’s soul closer to the Father.
When holiness is restored in a man, he will naturally not follow sin.
If he continues to follow the life meet for him by God. He will become Christ-like. Overcoming the simple sins of this world and the greater sins of the inner-man. He will be restored to his rightful place; his love for God will be above all things.
Compromise; God Uses Men To Judge Men And Situations
Gods judgment through men breaks the jaws of men. In other words makes them silent. There are some great examples of this in the Bible. Yet I will share with you a simple story about how my jaw was broken by a man.
Two older Christian men were having a conversation with a Jehovah’s Witness. I decided it was time for me to chime in with my two cents (this was when I was under the delusion that I was saved by just saying I was a Christian, by doing the sinners prayer and living like hell.)
I said something about how Jesus was the one and only God.
The Jehovah’s Witness turned to me and said, “Before you tell me how to live, why don’t you quit shacking up with that women that you are with.”
That’s how you break a man’s jaw. I have grown since then and learned many lessons. Number one “something about a speck and a beam”
That Jehovah’s Witness, judged me, rebuked me and help change the direction of my soul, towards Christ. I am not a Jehovah’s Witness but I will remember that one well.
Jesus set the standard, for breaking the jaws of men; with a few simple words to a complicated situation. Those words we all know; John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Paul, judges a situation similarly, Hebrews 5:11-14 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Paul has made the following judgments: that these men should have been leaders but were babes, to the point that they could no longer discern good from evil.
These men had come to the point in their walk with the Lord that they had back-slid-en to being babes again or out right unregenerate’s. And Paul let them know it, from the perspective of what God thought of the whole situation.
That they should be judged and corrected, with the hope that the outcome would be that they would repent of the situation and become as God wanted them to.
This all came about by the lack of spiritual food and fleshly desire. Milk is good for babes of Christ, though a man of God needs meat. Due to the lack of meat for the inner-man, these men’s souls had fallen into a state of moral decline to the point that they could no longer tell the difference between good and evil because of compromise. Yes compromise.
If you think that is hard to believe, think upon this; can men lust all day after women, go to the events of this world, love the entertainments of this world, love the customs of this world and love Jesus Christ?
Again, Paul judges men by calling them carnal, to the point that he could not even speak to them as regenerated.
1 Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
Paul has just judged men as carnal, yet it is their actions that witness against them, the judgment is just a reaction to the sinful actions of the people from the inside to the outside.
John the Baptist judged men to make two points, that the church of today could learn from. Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.
John sets the standard for God, first he calls these men what they are, a brood of vipers (he judges them). Christ also calls these same men vipers. Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
John then tells them who they are from within, the people of Israel came to John to repent of their sins, but these men came to not flee the wrath to come but, to listen to this spectacle in the desert (people still do this today, they come to hear the word of God preached, but have no intention to become effected by it.)
Yes, men compromise. Yet they do not commit to godliness. If a man does, compromise will be gone from his ways.
Then John finishes with the cry of any one sent by God. bring forth fruits meet for repentance.
This was the way to salvation taught in the old testament, by the prophet of the old testament and the new testament.
Peter told the people, “who you killed” then went on to say repent. This manner of witnessing will never change spiritually.
What does this have to do with compromise; everything.
With out knowing who you are, your mind will always elevate you to a better place than you are. Yet when God sends someone to judge men out of love through holiness.
In most cases, men will compromise and side with sin. Men know who they are and know the remedy, either receiving it with a contrite heart or rejecting it with a stiff neck.
Compromise; God Hates When Men Do Not Judge Correctly
God sits men in authority over men and expects them to judge matters in a godly way. Kings nor priest are exempt from this. Jeremiah 22:16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the Lord. 17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.
You have heard the word but it has not stuck, why?Without judgment on the behalf of wisdom there is no rebuke, that can cast shame upon the man who needs spiritual correction. That he may have a clean heart or better yet, be transformed by the power of God, into a new creature.
In other words, when a man tries to preach from the pulpit and tell you to live a better life, it won’t stick to your soul, like oatmeal sticks to your stomach. Why not?
Because the man who is preaching in most cases has his moral compass pointed towards the ways of this world. Don’t believe me, ask him. Simply put, ask him, “Do you lust after women, do you watch the television and does your house do as the world. (from entertainment to dress).”
When he gives you his answer, you will know his heart by its fruit. If he sides with sin, his fruit is of this world, if he sides with righteousness his fruit is of the Father in heaven.
His answer has been made by how little or how much he has compromised.
Why are men still captive to the things that hold the people of this world in bondage. Because men follow the ways of the people of this world. From those who lead men to those who men associate with.
I judge a man, who loves this world and the things of this world, in danger of hell. For the word of God tells us that no man can love the world and love God. 1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world,the love of the Father is not in him.
This is not a time to judge what I have written but a time to pray to God about what I have written. For my confidence is in Christ and my hope is in Christ. For I ask you to not compromise and to quite living in sin by faith and works.
I cry out to you, be not fooled as the drunkard, be not fooled as the good man and be not fooled as the moral man. But I say be in Christ, and not of this world or the ways of this world.
Compromise will retard and cripple the spirit of a man as nothing else will.
I will share it again; not to reiterate the same thing over and over, but to show the importance of the subject. The more I share the same subject the more attention it should be given. Because holiness has been lost, due to men being far from God, there is no reverence for God, therefore rebuking anyone has no authority from above. This has all come about because of the belief that people don’t have the right out of love to judge any more.
Due to compromise, men will judge and it will be that good is evil and evil is good.
And that belief came from emotionalism turning a man farther from God. To the point that he will compromise on the most vilest of subjects. Unless they are popular sins to come against.
When we as a people loss the right to judge our own people within the body of believers. Wisdom can no longer be found within the body of believers, to judge the simplest of matters to the more weightier matters. 1 Corinthians 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
Again, when judgment is not used, rebuke is not easily found, when rebuke is far from the lips of men, holiness is usually abandoned to the notion of acceptance. Then all things under the sun are acceptable in the eyes of men, and nothing is put to shame that repentance may come forth.
For shame brings repentance and repentance brings salvation or the cleansing of ones soul.
If there is not repentance, then what is there? Acceptance. And compromise is the birthing place of acceptance.
Yes, there was a time when men feared God and His ways, they were judged as reprobates (men of immoral character). They kept far from the local house of God and the ways of God. They knew if they pondered to close to the church that they might get good and saved.
These men did not compromise when it came to the ways of living for “Self.”
Yet some men came from the other side of the tracks, and God struck them with the branding iron of salvation. These men were told who they were (they were judged) what they had to do (they were rebuked, (corrected) and told to make an open confession to receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.
They were expected to act in a godly manner from that day on, they were expected to forsake the world, and they were expected to adhere to the ways of Christ.
The leaders of the church, did not compromise nor did the congregation on the greater matter of living a sin filled life.
Take note, the holy men of the Bible did not compromise
Of course, everything was not perfect, but men of old on a normal basis. Had a more Christ-like life then those who live today. Again this is the reason for this: holiness is at an all time low in our society, and even shunned in most church circles, because holiness is absent, the fear of God is absent.
Therefore, nearly all men employ the flesh to covet all things. It has become the normal thing in our society to compromise instead of to stand firm.
Because of compromise, Leaders or others can not rebuke anyone, and when they do it has no power because it has no purity. For they have been bought with a bribe (coveting) and their hearts are crooked. (there are exceptions to this but I have witnessed few in twenty plus years.)
Men in the church find themselves in a vicious circle of trying to fight sin, but loving sin. Then getting approval of it from the leadership of the church, and there brothers.
Compromise is a cruel enemy, giving a false peace for a moment and then hell for a gift.
Compromise and purity do not mix, the narrow path cannot be walked upon by feet that compromise, compromise is no friend of holiness and compromise is not within the mind of God.
It’s what happens when men no longer allow judgment by the spirit to be reveled to men, to bring rebuke upon the heads of men.
That the souls of men would be shamed, unto repentance and the sins of men would be thrown into the sea or that salvation would come to millions of men. Instead they are accepted as they are. Because men compromise to not offend.
