And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. – Romans 1:28-32 ESV
God is NOT a Spiritual RAPIST. He does NOT force Himself upon any. God gives us FREE WILL, He gives us a choice! He wants us TO WANT HIM. GOD does NOT, NEED US TO NEED HIM, however, HE does WANT US TO WANT HIM! Like any LOVER, or partner, God knows that a GIFT THAT IS COMMANDED- is no gift at all! Notice the premise, the premise is that ALL KNOW that there is a God; “since they did NOT SEE FIT to acknowledge God…” The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Psalm 119:1, Romans 1:19-20)
Leader, For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men. Every Victim needs a Savior and when we look to mankind, when we look to government, when we look to the political process for our SAVIOR, then we DENY the SAVIOR that GOD SENT US! Matthew 6:24 illustrates the dilemma of making GOVERNMENT GOD! “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.” We live in a time when GOVERNMENT mandates a denial of the God of the Bible. We live in a time when one of the 2 political parties, the Democrats, MOCK GOD, they deny HIS WORD, and tell us if you believe the Bible then you are to be charged with a HATE CRIME.
Conduit, just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses. Who were these 2 dudes, Jannes and Jambres? Jewish records tell us they were the chief of the sorcerers employed by Pharaoh. They were the men who sought to counteract the influence of the miracles of Moses by apparently doing the same things. Moses was freeing his people, following the WILL OF GOD! However, the government- Egypt, wanted to keep them captive. In Exodus 7:11, you will read the history of that opposition, Moses had just commanded Aaron to cast his rod upon the ground, and that rod has just been changed into a serpent, when “Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; now the magicians of Egypt also did in like manner with their enchantments, for every man cast down his rod, and they became serpents.” When we look for the government to solve our problems, to ease our fears and to feed and sustain us, it becomes our Master and our Savior, it becomes our GOD! When we deny the God of the Bible, and we WALK AWAY from HIM to them, then GOD GIVES US THE DESIRES OF OUR HEART! When God says, enough, and He gives us what we want- ALL HELL BREAKS LOSE- see the nightly news! For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. (Romans 1:21-27) The only way we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, is to TURN BACK TO GOD! It is time to VOTE FOR GOD, AND: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. AMEN!
