PUT IT OFF/CUT IT OFF

If you are not adding joy,peace,and encouragement then you have to go. If something or someone offends you,or steal your joy , happiness,and peace of mind,then it’s time to cut them loose. Why is it so hard for some people to put off,or cut off people or things that offend them,and disrupt their sanity.
LISTEN:
“Be not deceived;evil company corrupts good morals”{1 Corinthians 15:33}. Old folks used to put it this way : “show me your company,and I will show you who you are;or birds of a feather flock together”. yet most christians want to find excuses not to cut people off who corrupts,their principles,and who they represent,but Matthew 5:29-30 says,”And if thy right eye offend thee,pluck it out,and cast it from thee;for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,and  not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee,cut it off,and cast it from thee;for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,and not thy whole body should be cast into hell”. However,Ephesians 4:22-27 puts it like this,” That ye put off concerning the former manner of life or (conversation)the old man or (old self),which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind,and that ye put on the new man,which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore,putting away lying,speak every man truth with his neighbor,for we are members one of another. Be ye angry,and sin not,let not the sun go down upon your wrath; neither give place to the devil”. Finally,in Colossians 3:8-17 says,”But now ye also put off all these: anger,wrath,malice,blasphemy,filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another,seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds,and have put on the new man,that is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him; Where there is neither Greek nor Jew,circumcision nor uncircumcision,barbarian,scythian,bond nor free,but Christ is all,and in all. Put on,therefore,as the elect of God,holy and beloved,tender mercies,kindness,humbleness of mind,meekness,long-suffering;forbearing one another,and forgiving one another,if any man have a quarrek against any;even as Christ forgave you,so also do ye. And above all these things put on love,which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,to which also ye are called in one body;and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,in all wisdom,teaching and admonishing one another,in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever ye do in word or deed,do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,giving thanks to God and the Father by Him”. Therfore,if any man be in Christ,he is a new creature;old things are passed away;behold all things are become new;and all things are of God,who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ,and hath given us the ministry of reconciliation {2Corinthians 5:17-18}.

DIVINE STANDARDS

Sin is disobedience against the divine will, and plans of God. Did you know that sin originated with the devil, or satan also know as lucifer, before he sinned (Isaiah 14:12-14). Because, he got kicked out of heaven, with no chance of ever returning, his sole purpose in life is to take as much people with him as possible, so he started with Adam and Eve (Romans 5:12; Genesis 3:1-7). Because of them, we are born sinful and shaped in iniquity (Psalm 51:5), that’s why it is written,”All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23); So the question is? Who are you living for? Lets put sin into perspective, it is the blatant disrespect and disobedience against God’s will, the absence of righteousness from a person’s life, and the worse is hating God and His only begotten son.

 The wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23); Now why would someone not accept God’s gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, John 14:6),it just does not make any sence. Why do you choose to follow someone, who is doomed, and on a downward destructive path,  yes we were born in it, but we don’t have to live or stay in it. Are people that blind, that they fail to realize, that everything that glistens is not gold, can’t they see, understand or comprehend that misery loves company, so don’t accompany the devil to hell. If you want to know or feel where the devil is taking you, just stick your finger in a fire, or take a trip to the beach when it is 100 degrees outside, or fire up the oven to the maximum temperature and climb in,or when a volcano erupts don’t run,allow the lava to burn you,and you will get a taste of hell.Now think about it? Is that where you want to spend eternity. This is how you know if you are following the devil and is destined for hell: When you love, and follow your sinful desires, sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic activities, hostility, anger, jealousy, selfish ambition, envy, drunkenness, etc.(Galatians 5:19-21)

Now can you say without a shadow of a doubt that you are following God’s will, and not the devil’s, listen, lets change your status right now, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions for starters, then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life, read, Romans 12 :1-2 as a motto for Godly living, find a church that shares your belief in God and His son Jesus Christ, then you are on your way.
