Are you filled with the Holy Spirit of God or hypocrisy, lawlessness, greed, and self-indulgence like your ancestors known as scribes, Pharisees, and hypocrites? Because God considers you as serpents, and a generation of vipers; who will not escape the damnation of Hell (Matthew 23:32).
The problem with today’s society is that some people who profess to be Christians can not be distinguished between the ones that are not, because they do the right things for show publicly yet they are far from God. Matthew 23:23-31 describes them perfectly for us; It says,
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.”
They claim to be tithers, yet they tithe only on the smallest part of their income and ignore important things like justice, mercy and faith. They tithe little because they don’t want to give support for the poor, nor show mercy for them, yet they want God to justify and be merciful to them. Above all where is their faith and trust in God, because, He said if you give sparingly you will reap the same (2 Corinthians 9:6). He said give and it shall be given unto you, good measure pressed down and shaken together (Luke 6:38).
God considers folks who are stingy with tithes and offerings as blind as the unbeliever because they are careful and mindful of the little things of sin while doing the bigger things, as the Bible says in Matthew 23 verse 24 they are blind guides who strain the water in order not to swallow a gnat, but swallow a camel instead.
This is the reason why the body of Christ will be judged first, to eliminate the hypocrites who like a cup, looks good outside, but are dirty inside. They dress up and look nice for church services, yet they are full of greed, lust and all kinds of evil. But God wants the church to be spotless and without blemish inside and out.
Woe to you, God says, who are like a well painted tomb on the outside, but is full of dead bones and all manner of impurities. Are you one of these people God describes as a false prophet, who teaches religious laws, but don’t practice them. That’s why the Bible says, “to be doers of the word and not hearers only.”- James 1:22
Micah 6:8 tells us that the Lord requires us to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God. Then Romans 12:1-2, tells us to present our bodies to God as living sacrifices.
Allow God to transform you inside and out. If you have become a new creature in Christ, old things should pass away and everything should become new.
Serve God in spirit and in truth, ask God to search you and cleanse you from all sin.
If you want to be a new creature in Christ I invite you to visit the Salvation Prayer page above to receive Jesus into you life and to confess that Jesus is Lord.
