mikehill4jesus “God is angry with the wicked Christians!”
20th September 2016 (9.48) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
Evildoing unconverted professing Christians are NOT members of Christ’s Spiritual Body.
God is angry with the wicked!
God is a righteous judge,
a God who displays his wrath every day.
There are Righteous Christians and there are Unrighteous Christians: There are the born again Christians, spiritually converted, as clearly described by the Lord Jesus in John 14:23 and elsewhere. There are the unconverted Christians as described by the Lord Jesus in John 14:24 and elsewhere.
So it’s profitable to discuss this subject, “God is angry with the wicked!”
This is what Charles Finney said on the subject, and the Lord Jesus and others disciples in the Holy Bible also taught this. So there is no excuse for Christian Evildoers who have had 2000+ years to study this teaching, yet hinder Lost Souls from being saved. God’s anger with these evildoers brings on them certain punishment!
God is angry with the wicked. Our text explicitly affirms this. The same truth is affirmed and implied in numerous other passages. Let the sinner remember that this is the testimony of God himself. Who should better know the feelings of God towards sinners than God Himself does? Who on this point can gainsay what God affirms?
But this truth is also taught by reason. Every man in the exercise of his reason knows it ought to be true. If God were not opposed to the wicked, He would be wicked Himself for not opposing them. What would you think of a judge who did not hate and oppose law-breakers? Would you think him an honest man if he did not take sides against transgressors? Every body knows that this is the dictate of reason and of common sense. Sinners know this, and always assume it in their practical judgments. They know that God is angry with them, and ought to be – though they may not realize it. Sinners know many things which they do not realize. For instance, you who are in sin know that you must die; but you have more reason to be assured that God is angry with you than you have to be sure that you must die; for it is not necessarily so certain that you will die as it is that God is angry with you for your sin. God may possibly translate you from this world to another without your death – as he has some others; but there never was and never can be any exception to the universal law of his anger against all the wicked. You know this therefore with an absolute certainty which precludes all possibility of rations doubt.
Sinners do know this, and I have said, and always assume it in their practical judgments. Else why are they afraid to die – why afraid to meet God face to face in the world of retribution? Would they have this fear if they did not know that God is angry with them for their sin? It would be gratuitous therefore to prove this truth to the sinner; he already knows it – knows it not only as a thing that is, but as what ought to be.
So, where does that place Christians’ who consistently do evil and make excuses for it?
Mark 16:20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Does this sound like an Angry Lord Jesus Christ? It sure does!
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
This is an important subject “God is angry with the wicked!” and I will continue it in my next Blog.
Many professing Christians who do wicked things are calling God a Liar, in that he allows us to break Moral Law!
Matthew 5:18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
Here are a list of Commands in the Holy Bible that we are told to obey!
This is what God says!
John 14:24 Anyone who does NOT love me [the Lord Jesus] will NOT obey my teaching.
It is the Devil that causes the unconverted Professing Christians to believe that a person can have one foot on the Broad Road and one foot on the Narrow Road. But then he always tells lies for he can do nothing else as there is no TRUTH in him.
DESPITE 39 YEARS OF WITNESSING FOR JESUS, I DO NOT HAVE ANY CHRISTIAN FRIENDS
Do they distance themselves from me because they know they are sinners and do not want to face God who lives with me?
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
The Gospel of Jesus that many Christian Leaders need to use.
The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit without which we are just playing at Christianity.
