SAFE SIN

 














How Safe is Sin?
.

Consider today’s message: "It is all right to sin as long as you practice SAFE SIN. Drunkenness is OK as long as someone sober drives you home. Narcotics are OK as long as you use clean needles. Sexual deviation is OK since it exists and so it should be approved. Promiscuity is OK as long as you take safe precautions. It is all right to sin, but please, play it SAFE!" The Bible gives the true perspective: "Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death . . . For THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH" (James 1:15; Rom. 6:23).
.
Harmless Poison?
.
Safe Sin is a flat contradiction. It would be like talking of a "healthy disease" or "harmless poison" or "clean filth" or a "lively corpse." It would be like a mouse talking about a safe mousetrap or a fish speaking of a safe hook or a pig thinking of a safe slaughterhouse. SIN IS NEVER SAFE. It is always dangerous, destructive, damning and always brings with it disastrous consequences. Consider Sodom and Gomorrah whose "sin [was] very grievous" who received "brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven" (Gen. 18:20; 19:24). So also God’s sobering warnings in Leviticus 18:22-24; 20:13; Romans 1:24-28.

God’s Purpose and Plan

"Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but fornicators and adulterers God will judge" (Heb. 13:4). What God has designed for a husband and wife is something very precious (see Gen. 2:20-25). It is not only SAFE, but it is also to be held in honor, unpolluted, unsoiled, pleasurable and satisfying. The problem is that people have DEVIATED from the healthy relationships which God intended: "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (sodomy), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (one who abuses himself with a male), nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Cor. 6:9-10).

Is There Safety For Sinners?
.
God has good news for those "whosoevers" (John 3:16) that recognize their need for God's righteousness: "And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified (declared righteous) in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God" (1 Cor. 6:11). "For He (God) hath made Him (Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Cor. 5:21). There is great safety found in God’s only SAVIOUR: "There is now therefore no condemnation to them that are IN CHRIST JESUS" (Rom. 8:1). He is ABLE, WILLING and READY to save any person who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ: "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom. 10:13). "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me (the Lord Jesus) hath everlasting life" (John 6:47). Don’t be charmed and deceived by the allurements of so-called "safe sin"! Put your trust in the risen Christ who is the only One who can safely save (John 3:16; John 1:12)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


Sin is the transgression and violation of the righteous perfection or the ETERNAL absolutes of Almighty God. Sin is also the transgression and violation of the - Spiritual and Natural – laws and absolutes of Almighty God the Creator, established before the foundation of this world and eternity past (Rom 3:23).

Have Faith In Almighty God!


















The Conqueror of death and the grave is our Refuge in the times of life’s storms and trials! We have nothing to fear!

"I am he [The Lord Jesus Christ] that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death" (Rev. 1:18).

"May we allow Almighty God’s great out working in our lives - for His will and glory - consume our trials, adversities and dilemmas; and not our trials, adversities and dilemmas to consume us!” GFP I.F.
.
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us" (Romans 8:37).

"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith" (1 John 5:4).

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil" (Proverbs 3:5-7).

"Have Faith in God!" (Mark 11:22)

"To God be the glory!" (Romans 11:36)

You Being Evil... Yes You!





 The Lord Jesus spoke to those unbelieving fathers of His day who were sincere and concerned about seeking their children’s well being in a dark and trying day. He stated these powerful words of rebuke and REALITY to these individuals - in particular fathers - to help them comprehend that the ETERNAL Father is entirely a better father then the dear sincere concerned earthly fathers of this fallen world. Jesus stated, “Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” (Matt. 7:9-11)

My dear friend, I LOVE that line from the Savior! Only by the Holy Spirit in objective TRUTH and REALITY can one comprehend the validity and sobering REALITY of what Christ is trying to convey to these fathers. “You being EVIL.” My dear friends apart from Almighty God’s saving grace we are transgressors of the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of Almighty God and are outlaws and criminals before the courts of Heaven (Rom. 3:23, 10:2-4). Indeed we are “evil” (lawless) in Almighty God’s eyes without Christ, but how many “#1 Dad’s” fully comprehend what Almighty God is trying to reveal to them REALITY and His ETERNAL love (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). Jesus was trying to help these fathers see outside the box of this fallen world and be objective in light of the Holy Law of God and see themselves as the Father sees them in their present estate (Isa. 1:18, Gal. 3:21-24).


Indeed we are “evil” in Almighty God’s eyes without Christ, but how many “#1 Dad’s” fully comprehend what Almighty God is trying to reveal to them REALITY and His ETERNAL love.

Oh my dear friend, you may be the best dad in the world and truly want the best that this fallen world has to offer children for the brief moments of time, but if you REJECT Almighty God’s saving Grace, which is found ONLY in the Person of Jesus Christ you damn yourselves and truly HATE your children. You deceive them with Satan’s ETERNAL damnable lie and are partakers in his godless rebellion (Matt. 7:21-23, 25:41). That “lie” being, we DO NOT need Almighty God’s PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS and REDEMPTION and we can live a vain existence without the God of ETERNITY (Rom. 10:2-4, Gal. 2:21).

My dear fathers and friends, Almighty God loves you and wants the best for you and your precious children. He sent His Son to die on the cross for your transgressions against Him and for Christ to be our propitiation and Savior (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). Do not be a fool and dismiss REALITY, but be objective and receive it with your whole heart (John 1:12).

My dear fathers and friends, Almighty God loves you and wants the best for you and your precious children!

My friend, the father who truly seeks ONLY the will of Almighty God for his children in Spirit and Truth is truly the father who beyond a shadow of doubt loves his children (Matt. 7:24-25, Col. 1:9-14, 2 John 1:1-7, 3 John 1:2-4). All other human fallen, “love” is a damnable lie and a deception from the liar and deceiver of this fallen world (Matt. 24:26-27, John 8:44).

This day I pray that if you do not know the Savior in Spirit and Truth that you would be objective and have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to you about Jesus Christ for you and your children (Rev. 22:17). My dear friends, May it be even so! May it be that you will become all that the ETERNAL Father would have you to be (Rom. 8:29)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Our Lives Have Only Just Begun!













Our lives have only just begun as we walk through this weary world (called time). The Lord Jesus leads the way to Almighty God’s glorious ETERNAL day, where we shall all live happily FOREVER and EVERMORE (Rev 22:1-6)!

In absolute truth and bliss in that day, we will be able to truly enjoy Almighty God as He truly is, in the absolute beauty of righteousness with no more of our fallen humanity to distract us (Romans 7:24,25, 2 Cor 5:2).

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him (1 Cor 2:9).

Endure today’s trials, woes and joys knowing that this world is NOT our home. For our labor it is not in vain for those who personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior and truly seek the Father's will for His Glory and Honor in these last days (Romans 8:28)!

Remember my beloved, our lives have truly only just begun! Almighty God and His ETERNITY awaits all who personally know Him! Such wondrous truth when possessed will set all free from the limited box called time. Rejoice in the Lord, and again I say rejoice!

Eph. 5:16-16!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


God speed!!
