For many years I read the Scriptures about Jesus claiming that He never knew a person with some confusion. As a baby Christian, I often feared when I read this; thinking that perhaps He would not “know” me. Now I realize that was the evil one speaking lies to me.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:21-23).
“But he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” is certainly the heart of this passage of Scripture.
The Great Apostasy
In the last few years, we have watched the mainstream churches as they have gone down like dominos with their false teachings. The first sign was the ordaining of women as pastors, which I believe is not upheld by the Word of God. Then it was ordaining gays as pastors, which is blatantly disregarding the Scriptures.
(Leviticus 18:22) “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.”
(Romans 1:26-28 ) “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”
Many of the mainstream denominations jumped on the pro Abortion (pro death) bandwagon – claiming that a woman has a right to decide whether to have a child or to terminate the pregnancy.
The pastors of these churches even preach that God would understand that the woman did not want the child. They call it “choice” but I call it “murder for convenience sake.” Have you ever wondered why it is when a pregnant woman is murdered, the authorities call it a double murder? That certainly contradicts the whole “The unborn do not have rights” mantra, doesn’t it?
Hatred of Israel
Israel is the Apple of God’s eye. The Jews are the Chosen of God. Out of Jewish lineage came the Lord Jesus Christ. The old and new Testaments were written by Jewish people – of course under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Most of the mainstream churches have turned their backs on Israel. They preach hatred towards Israel, and are solidly on the side of the so-called Palestinians. Many in these churches support BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) against Israel. They say that Israel is oppressing the Palestinians. They refuse to acknowledge that Israel is the Jewish people’s God-given homeland.
“For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. ¶ And these [are] the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah” (Jeremiah 30: 3-4).
Strong Delusion in the end times
So God has given over those who reject Him and His Word to their sinful ways. They do what is right in their own eyes, and oppose the God of the Universe. So the Lord says of these people:
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 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: 28-32).
Are you voting for Hillary Clinton?
Are you a person who considers yourself to be right with the Lord, and heaven bound when you die? Are you also a person who votes Democrat because you believe in the platform of these people: pro abortion, gay marriage and supportive of Palestinians while hate-filled towards Israel? I am here to tell you that you are deluded and SO deceived. God detests the aforementioned platform of the Democratic party!
You need to repent of these evil beliefs. You need to agree with our Lord that these things are evil in the sight of God. And then you need to ask for forgiveness and trust the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will be “born again.”
This is the ONLY way that you will be able to enter heaven when you die. The choice is yours. God leaves this up to you.
