A reminder for today
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. (1 John 2:22-25)
We live in weird times. I grew up in world where people went to church every Sunday and respected other. People did not doubt God and schools started a day with prayer and scripture. Suddenly that all changed and now we are not allowed to have schools that starts a day with Jesus, suddenly Jesus is not allowed in our schools anymore. The moment we accept this is the moment society falls into destruction. Isn’t it funny how Jesus is wrong, but satan is right. The laws of Jesus have no meaning but the lawlessness of satan is fine. People will rather build on lies than stand on the truth. What happened to this world that God created?
It is simple, when we live a godless life we have no guild for we can do whatever we want and it is fine. We can lie and steal and destroy. We can hurt and kill and fornicate and bath in the desires and lusts of a broken world. We can have same sex relationships and the world will ban those speaking out against gay marriages. Corruption and wealth makes the person and the more we have the more important we are. We live for evil and there is no place for good. We deny God, yet we accept other gods.
John writes a very important message here in verse 22. He says that those who denies Jesus is nothing other than antichrist. And we have many of those. He goes on makes it very clear that whoever denies Jesus, does not have God either. How many people denies Jesus as our saviour and Messiah? John goes on says that which we have heard and which we know should remain in us until the end, because this promises eternal life. So, I ask that we do not accept this world, but instead we should stand up for Jesus and fight for Him. There are so many that are lost. We just can’t let them perish. We can at least stand up for Jesus so that they will see our conviction and maybe the Holy Spirit can change their hearts. Things are going to get much worse, so I ask that you stay steadfast in your faith and keep your eyes on Jesus.
Lord, I pray that you will open our hearts and eyes so that we will recognize the lies of satan and reject him from us. Let us stand firm in our faith and give us the strength to keep fighting no matter how hard it gets. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
