REPENT – AN OFFENSIVE WORD TO MOST

Humanity’s primary problem is sin, and without repentance, forgiveness, and faith in Christ, sin will be punished. When is the last time we have taught these things in our churches and to our youths? When is the last time, Christian parent, that you have taught such things to your kids? We no longer teach that people need to repent of their sins. Remember that word? Let me say that again, repent, since it seems offensive to most these days, even though it was the KEY message of Jesus and the apostles.

Anarchy on the streets of Seattle

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Matthew 4:17

When is the last time we taught them that we will all stand before the Lord on judgment day to give an account for the things we have done in the body, whether good or bad?.

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.2 Corinthians 5:10

Is it any wonder, then, that a generation of young people apparently feels no remorse, no conviction, no guilt for stealing, destroying small businesses, and injuring other human beings? There is no fear of God before their eyes because we made no effort to tell them the truth about God.

This Scripture will tell you how to understand the fear of the Lord and to find knowledge from God then He will be your shield and watch over you.

My son (daughter), if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understand; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.Proverbs 2:1-5

THOSE WHO SHOULD FEAR JUDGEMENT

Wyoming parents file a criminal complaint against library officials over pornographic children’s books. County prosecutors are investigating and considering filing charges. A special prosecutor was assigned to the case. Statewide LGBT group comes to library’s defense – supporting the books as does the ACLU.

A parent speaks before the Library Board, reading from several of the sexualized children’s books. But the Board refused to do anything.

The books are:

  • This Book is Gay by Juno Dawson
    This book promotes an array of homosexual and lesbian sex acts and instructs children how to engage in them.
  • How Do You Make a Baby by Anna Fiske
    This bizarre book for 4-10 year-olds includes pornographic drawings of sexual activity.
  • Doing It: Let’s Talk About Sex by Hannah Witton
    As the cover (below) describes, this book promotes for children the idea of seeking “sexual pleasure” through sex, homosexuality, and masturbation.
  • Sex is a Funny Word by Corey Silverberg
    This book coaches 8-11 year-olds to be comfortable getting naked and being touched. And in particular, to feel okay having their anus touched.
  • Dating and Sex: A Guide for the 21st Century Teen Boy by Andrew P Smiler. This includes a how-to guide to masturbation and enjoying pornography.

State LGBT group comes to the library’s support

The most prominent statewide homosexual and transgender organization, Wyoming Equality, also weighed in. As expected, they support books that encourage children to engage in homosexual behaviors, particularly when the parents disagree. The LGBT movement’s obsession with recruiting children is why they help push these books into schools and libraries across the country.

They are using a well-worn tactic to deflect the issue: The false and absurd claim that parents are “threatening” public officials and library staff over the books.

ACLU had this to say

Stephanie Amiotte, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of South Dakota, North Dakota and Wyoming, told a left-wing blog that her group “stands firmly” behind the Campbell County Public Library staff.

Regarding pornographic books, she said that children must have “free access to information.” She said that libraries cannot allow “private pressure groups, or politicians, who seek to impose their own political, moral, or religious beliefs by censoring books chosen by professional librarians for library shelves.” The staff of supposed experts, not the parents and taxpayers, must be the judge of what children are given.

Rosie’s Gay Bar

A Florida school board member chaperoned a group of elementary school children on a field trip to Rosie’s, a gay bar, according to photos of the trip she posted to social media.

“I was SO honored to be invited to chaperone Wilton Manors Elementary’s field trip to the incredible Rosie’s! The students and I had a fun walk over and learned a lot about our community! A huge thank you to Rosie’s Bar and Grill for hosting this special field trip every year!, Broward County School Board member Sarah Leonardi posted on her official school board Facebook page Wednesday.

The children were subjected to perverse menu items labeled as:
Motha Cluckers, Pisa Envy, Naked Sweaty Lovin, ‘Beet Your Brains Out, Miley High Club, Bacon Bitty Bang Bang, The Big Dripper Wrap
Notice the very appropriate image behind the children of a horrible monster reaching out to take a hold of their innocent minds.

The judgement that awaits those that cause children to sin is severe. The following Scripture should bring fear upon those that do.

But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.Matthew 18:6

WHOM DO YOU FEAR?

Let us be encouraged by David and his courage in the face of fear. Moreover, Jesus made it possible for our Heavenly Father to send the Holy Spirit to indwell every believer so we can have the same confidence that David did that God will be with us in times of trouble.

​”The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.” Psalms 27:1-3

Though my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will receive me.” Psalms 27:10

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! Psalms 27:13-14

Two more inspiring Psalms one from David and the other from the Songs of Korah: they fear no evil because they know God is with them in times of trouble.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalms 23:4

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah.” Psalms 46:1-3

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE SAFEST EMOTION IN THIS HOUR

The only thing worth seeing is the move of God on this earth. God saving souls, making disciples is what counts. Where does this happen? Listen to this message from Mario Murillo about the GLORY OF GOD. Only when people repent and empty themselves of self and live for God will they see the GLORY OF GOD. It happens in the places of supreme darkness where people are at the end of themselves. Watch the video, if your a Christian you will be glad you did. If you are not, I hope the fear of God rises up and repentance follows.

WHOM DO YOU FEAR?

Do not fear” is the most common commandment in the Bible; it appears more than any other commandment. God uses this phrase whenever he asks someone to do something scary or something that they are not used to doing. He says, “do not be afraid, fear not, or don’t be afraid.”

Read these amazing passages:

David and Goliath “And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” 1 Samuel 17:37

And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:13-14

But the Lord said to Moses, “Do not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land. And you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.” Numbers 21:34

See, the Lord your God has set the land before you. Go up, take possession, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has told you. Do not fear or be dismayed.’Deuteronomy 1:21

And I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; you shall not fear the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell.’ But you have not obeyed my voice.” Judges 6:10

Look what God says to Ruth, “And now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a worthy woman.Ruth 10:29-30

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7

It is only God you should fear:

Is not your fear of God your confidence, and the integrity of your ways your hope?Job 4:6

Practical wisdom for living is the central concern of the book of Proverbs. We are told that the beginning and essence of wisdom is the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7; 9:10).

How did the church grow: “So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. Acts 9:31

Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God” 2 Corinthians 5:11

And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.Philippians 1:14

Time is short may we be bold to speak the word of the Lord and the Gospel to others without fear.

WHOM SHALL I FEAR?

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1

God is our refuge and strength,  a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains are moved into the heart of the seaPsalms 46:1-2

Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.Psalms 112:1-2

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.Psalm 23:4-5

You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday… because you have made the LORD your dwelling place, the Most High, who is my refuge, no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.Psalms 91:5-6,9-10

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? Psalms 56:3-4

The Word of God is enough, you do not need words from Ron Edwards.

KINGDOM MESSAGE FROM PASTOR JEFF

A short 7 minute message – fear the living God not men.

God’s Kingdom will come and Jesus will rule with a rod of iron during His coming Millennial reign. To fulfil the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Jesus will rule the nations from Jerusalem for 1000 years exactly as the Bible outlines. Sadly, we also know that most nations are goat nations, they don’t fear the living God. They will persecute God’s people during the time leading up to The Day of the Lord when Jesus takes His saints to heaven and pours out His wrath upon the unrepentant still on earth. When the seals have been removed and The Scroll is opened, The Wrath of God is released on the earth with the trumpet and bowl judgements. Fear the living God not men, wise advice.
