America in the flesh

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by Copper25, Feb 17, 2009.

  1. America in the flesh

    Amos 5:14) Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.

    How much has America as a whole, as a nation abandoned and threw out the biblical principles that it was founded on? At what magnitude has this country, the great, the land of the proud, abandoned the principles of God? Seek the good is something that this country has lost site of and despite the fact that America regards itself as a Christian nation, the majority don’t act like what they profess. Out of the frying pan and into the fire. America is the frying pan and hell is the fire, but many won’t recognize that until it is too late! In a nation where corruption is taken lightly, where evil is glanced upon and even winked at by many, a place where the dollar is king and seems to be the prime focus, the prime drive and motivation of many, where the temporal focuses are put primary and spiritual focus takes a back seat, o how we forgot to seek the good not in material fulfillment, but in the nourishment of the soul and its edification. We need to seek God and be separate not physically but spiritually away from and apart from all the immorality. Seek the God of host whose mercy endureth forever, whose judgment is upon all the earth. How can we seek God and hold on to that which He hates? If we hold on to evil then aren’t we in turn loosing the good, losing our soul to damnation and hell?

    Galatians 5:24) And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

    Now what does it mean to crucify the flesh, it means to abolish, to get ride of, to wipe out and crush the deeds that are linked to the flesh and we are given sharp warnings of the such in the bible that “they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh” and what it means if one still abides in the flesh. (Romans 8:13) “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” The ways of the Spirit are in direct contrast with the ways of the flesh so in turn if one is submitting to the fleshy deeds, then isn’t one resisting the Spirit of God and His working? “if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die” is in direct contrast to the life in the Spirit which is life and peace. No wonder Paul said “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). Now is this always easy, no because “the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh” (Galatians 5:17), but by leaning to and depending on God in prayer, by His word heeding and listening to Him, we can keep our flesh under control. In a fleshy world where evil is glorified and promoted by society, magnified and utilized to twist, conform to infiltrate and penetrate into the truth, to blend the lies into the truth, can we not lean to God and submit to fleshy ways and prosper, I think not.

    So in an illustrious society characterized by evil, conformed to wax worse and worse according to the scripture (Matthew 24:12)And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold”, we must weather adversity and be compelled by the grace of God to stand on our principles regardless of our surroundings or our circumstances because we are Christians and follow God our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Proverbs 17:17) “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

    Let’s call the situation as for what it really is, perilous times, a time where there is spiritual famine in the world, a time where billions are being destroyed spiritually having the wrath of God resting upon them because they choose not the “gift of God” which “is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Roman 6:23) This is just the plain truth, we all can do it, the fact of the matter is that it depends on whether one chooses to break free from the world and is willing to “touch not the unclean thing” and is willing to be received by God. Many want to have eternal life but are not willing to separate themselves or part themselves from the evil that is in their worldly life to conform to the spiritual life in Christ. We must turn to the Lord and our back to iniquity and by no means purposefully hold on to it lest it become a snare upon us.
  2. That's it in a nut shell .. People think they will loose all their so called freedom or fun and think that the Christian life is for the weak. They do not want to take up the cross and follow Jesus .

    We are the hands and feet of Christ and we are salt and light to take the Word to this lost and dying nation .
  3. Earlier today, our lost and dying nation just stole $787 BILLION Dollars from our children and our childrens children to pay our own greedy debts.

    Psalm 37:21 Rather that repay our own debts, rather than trust in God for our daily bread, so many of us have decided to live far beyond our means, and pass the debt onto our children.

    Ecclesiastes 5 reminds us that to borrow that which we cannot repay, or do not intend to repay is not only foolish (You cannot borrow your way out of debt.) but it is also lying and theft.

    Much of this $787 BILLION Dollars will be used to bail out corporations that have poorly managed Gods gifts, they have squandered and wasted their resources as they will now continue to do. Matthew 7:6 neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

    We need to teach our children that the world does not owe them a living. Proverbs 6:6-8
    That no one is entitled to home or automobile ownership. You get what you earn. And that the Lord provides, not the government. Matthew 7 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs

    May our children forgive us, and may God have Mercy on our souls.
