False Teachers And Their Destruction

"But there were also false prophets among the people,
just as there will be false teachers among you.
They will secretly introduce destructive heresies,
even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them-
bringing swift destruction on themselves.
Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring
the way of truth into disrepute.
In their greed these teachers will exploit you with
stories they have made up.
Their condemnation has long been hanging over
them, and their destruction has not been sleeping."

2Peter 2: 1-3

These are the end times and we are seeing the widespread works of the enemy throughout the world. The word of God is vilified and in its place, various teachings and pseudo doctrines abound the world, misleading even intelligent men. Some of their misleading teachings are reincarnation, bogus philosophies, strange doctrines that cater to the innate desire of man to live the so called good life. This is just hedonism sugar coated with so many fine words. We are shocked by the temerity and total disregard for the sanctity of life by so called suicide bombers who kill innocent people and themselves as well. Even women are being used as suicide bombers. What kind of philosophy or teaching can condone the taking of one's own life just to kill and maim other lives? Many people bow down to the lord of the world who keeps foisting his attractive lures and baits as people are led down the path to their own destruction. Many people are lukewarm, saying they believe in God and just stop there while also wallowing in the sinfulness of the world. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them and their destruction has not been sleeping.

Lead A Rigteous Life

"Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray.
He who does what is right is righteous, just as
He is righteous.
He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because
the devil has been sinning from the beginning.
The reason the Son of God appeared was to
destroy the devil's work.
No one who is born of God will continue to sin,
because God's seed remains in him; he cannot
go on sinning, because he has been born of God.
This is how we know who the children of God are
and who the children of the devil are: Anyone
who does not do what is right is not a child of God;
nor is anyone who does not love his brother."

1John 3: 7-10

John admonished us to lead a righteous life befitting our title as children of God. Those who have been born again through the baptism of the Holy Spirit have been imbibed with power and grace from on high and must leave the path of sinful living. The word of God empowers us to be righteous just as our Lord who called us out of darkness is righteous. We cannot go on sinning and still avail of the wondrous gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Sin, anger, strong emotions and contentiousness grieve the Holy Spirit. We must lead simple righteous lives ever waiting for the opportunity to do good deeds to others so that they may glorify our Father in heaven. Let us keep in step with our fellow saints here on earth and the angelic hosts in heaven in worshiping and praising the Lord for all His goodness in our lives. Let us honor God with a righteous life by not sinning.

Children Of God

"How great is the love the Father has lavished
on us, that we should be called children of God!
And that is what we are!
The reason the world does not know us is
that it did not know Him.
Dear friends, now we are all children of God, and
what we will be has not yet been made known.
But we know that when He appears,
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him
as He is.
Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies
himself, just as He is pure."

1John 3:1-3

Children of God, how great does it sound? Have we ever really contemplated the full meaning of that phrase? We are the children of the greatest, the all powerful, the wisest, all seeing and all loving Person in the whole universe who created everything we see and beyond that. He created the whole universe and man, the pinnacle of His creation. If we have that great privilege, are we not supposed to enter His throne of grace in awe and reverential fear, befitting the glory and honor due to the King of kings and Lord of lords? But that's what we are. He loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to save us from spiritual death that was our inborn nature and apparent destiny. And all those who accepted His beloved Son as their Lord and savior were conferred the title- sons and daughters and children of God. We will be able to see our glorious nature upon the return of our Lord here on earth to fetch and bring us to His heavenly kingdom. We will be transformed into the glorious body our Lord has. In the meantime, while we await His triumphant return, let us purify ourselves from all filth and evil of this world and be faithful to Him by living to please God and give glory to His name.
