Put on your Armor Today- Eph 6, How to really put on your armor

Comments 6 Standard

Taking Up the Whole Armor of GodSometimes we  get so wrapped up in  the study of spiritual warfare that we forget to apply it properly to our lives. We may imagine it is on us, we may pretend to put it on each morning, but this isn’t pretend and this isn’t only about how we think.  To put on our armor of protection and to have our Sword in our hand,  we need to walk a certain way. We must be doers of God’s word, not just a hearer of God’s word.

Some of us wake up, pretend our super Christian armor is on us, and head out the door. We listen to filthy music, get on the phone and start to gossip, grumble about life, worry and fret over worst case scenarios, curse at people who can’t drive or park, we lie, use filthy words, steal, cheat, have horrible thought lives and make excuses for sins in our life – wasting time on social media and hours of filthy ungodly entertainment. Who are we kidding? Surely, ourselves.

Today I wanted to REMIND you to protect yourself from the devils attacks and lies that try to pull you away from the Lord , to get you suited up in full armor and have your Sword ready.

Live today in God’s righteousness and peace. Stay away from evil- watch your words, your thoughts, your actions.  Let all you do today glorify God. What are you listening to? Don’t gossip! Don’t start arguments, forgive others and do all you can to live in peace today.

Righteousness and Peace have kissed each other! Ps 85:10
Yes! That is your supernatural protection – you chose it by the way you live.

How do you live in peace and righteousness? You must know the truth, that is God’s word. Open it up today and begin to hear and be lead by the Spirit of Wisdom and Truth.This truth will also build your faith. You will know and understand that no weapon formed against you shall prosper and every word or attack that comes upon you will not prosper for this is the heritage of the saints of the Lord.

And…for those of you who are under attack and trials now, God says to put your trust in Him fully. Tell Him what you need and the Lord promises to put a guard of great peace around your heart and mind as you trust in Him. – See! That is part of your shield and your helmet-God’s word is what you can trust and hope in.

Your protection and your weapon are based on God’s word- and prayer.

Live a godly life based on God’s word and you will have the protection you need today. Don’t fool yourself and think you can keep living in sin, causing problems, fighting with others and living in other nonsense and then pretend to put on put on your armor. It doesn’t work that way.

Directions: Pray! Behave! Believe! Read and Meditate on God’s word- read it, speak it, believe it, live it!

I read  this early this morning, this is good scripture to think and meditate on today
Proverbs 4  

 Get wisdom; develop good judgment.
    Don’t forget my words or turn away from them.
 Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you.
    Love her, and she will guard you.
 Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!
    And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.
 If you prize wisdom, she will make you great.
    Embrace her, and she will honor you.
 She will place a lovely wreath on your head;
    she will present you with a beautiful crown.”

My child, listen to me and do as I say,
    and you will have a long, good life.
 I will teach you wisdom’s ways
    and lead you in straight paths.
 When you walk, you won’t be held back;
    when you run, you won’t stumble.
Take hold of my instructions; don’t let them go.
    Guard them, for they are the key to life.
Don’t do as the wicked do,

    and don’t follow the path of evildoers.
 Don’t even think about it; don’t go that way.
    Turn away and keep moving.
 For evil people can’t sleep until they’ve done their evil deed for the day.
    They can’t rest until they’ve caused someone to stumble.
 They eat the food of wickedness
    and drink the wine of violence!

The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
    which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like total darkness.
    They have no idea what they are stumbling over.

 My child, pay attention to what I say.
    Listen carefully to my words.
 Don’t lose sight of them.
    Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
 for they bring life to those who find them,
    and healing to their whole body.

 Guard your heart above all else,
    for it determines the course of your life.

 Avoid all perverse talk;
    stay away from corrupt speech.

 Look straight ahead,
    and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
 Mark out a straight path for your feet;
    stay on the safe path.
 Don’t get sidetracked;
    keep your feet from following evil.

 

Yes, Amen….Don’t get sidetracked.

Walk in peace and righteousness today, decide to fill your heart and mind with God’s word and whatever you do….guard your lips, your feet and your heart from all evil. Yes, be simple to what is evil and be wise to what is good.

  47. Don’t demand an audience with the king or push for a place among the great.( For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen)  (2x)

  51. Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are.
  52. Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring  
  53. Don’t boast in yourself. “I’m so great, let me tell you about it….” Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips. 
  54. Don’t believe everyone! Some pretend to be kind, but don’t believe them. Their hearts are full of many evils.
  55. Don’t protect a murderer.  His tormented conscience will drive him into the grave. Don’t protect him!(A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.)
  56. Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. (for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few)
  57. Don’t let your mouth make you sin. And don’t defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake. That would make God angry, and he might wipe out everything you have achieved (Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error)  
  58. Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise.
  59. Don’t eavesdrop on others—you may hear your servant curse you. For you know well that: (oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others) .
  60. Don’t quit! If your boss is angry at you, don’t quit! A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes.  ( I just texted this verse to someone who didn’t want to hear it, lol, and she just replied “What! Ugh!”)
  61. Don’t make fun of the powerful, even in your own bedroom. For a little bird might deliver your message and tell them what you said Never make light of the king, even in your thoughts 
  62. Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.
  63. Don’t eat too much honey, or it will make you sick! (Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee)
  64. Don’t make me cut your chicken! Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth.(This verse speaks this also to me: For crying out loud Lisa! How much lettuce and fruit will rot in your kitchen before you get up and cut it. Get a knife and cut it open, very simple, very simple…and yes you have to cook the chicken today, and stop waiting for someone else to cut your fruit)
  65. Don’t break your promises to God. Don’t delay in following through with a promise you made to God, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him (Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay).
  66. Don’t be surprised if you see a poor person being oppressed by the powerful and if justice is being miscarried throughout the land. For every official is under orders from higher up, and matters of justice get lost in red tape and bureaucracy. (for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they)  God is still in charge and see’s everything
  67. Don’t desire what you don’t have, but enjoy what you have rather.Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless—like chasing the wind.
  68. Don’t be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? (Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself ? Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time? What is he saying here? Don’t kill yourself trying so hard to be perfect ? Ms. Superclean, can you put away the Lysol for a moment, I can’t breath, Mr.ocd….. if the frame is out of place, take a deep breath and keep walking…..just thoughts, just thoughts….)
  69. Don’t be too wicked either. Don’t be a fool! Why die before your time? 
  70. Don’t try to avoid doing your duty, and don’t stand with those who plot evil, for the king can do whatever he wants 
  71. Don’t be lazy in the kitchen. Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find.  (2-3x in bible)oookay then….
  72. Don’t let your hearts be taken by an immoral woman. Don’t wander down her wayward path. (And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)  So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows…..For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death )
  73. Don’t go near her house, stay away from her! Don’t lust for her beauty. Don’t let her coy glances seduce you. (For the lips of a strange (immoral) woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:  But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.) (2+)
  74. Don’t be greedy, for it will lead you to poverty. Greedy people try to get rich quick but don’t realize they’re headed for poverty. 
  75. Don’t wait until your last breath to remember your Creator. Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young, before the silver cord of life snaps and the golden bowl is broken. Don’t wait until the water jar is smashed at the spring and the pulley is broken at the well (Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it) 
  76. Don’t ignore the poor. The godly care about the rights of the poor; the wicked don’t care at all.  
  77. Don’t act quickly, without thinking. Wise people think before they act; fools don’t—and even brag about their foolishness. 

       Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

With Love,
King Solomon

Wii dance 3 Review –Christian Review — Warning: Inappropriate Language

Comments 2 Standard

You sing trivial songs to the sound of the harp
    and fancy yourselves to be great musicians like David.
 You drink wine by the bowlful
    and perfume yourselves with fragrant lotions. Amos 6:5 (in other words, God sees us sitting around singing worthless songs, chanting them over and over. We think we are something else, great musicians as we sing worthless songs. He must wonder..Why aren’t they thanking me? praying to me? singing to ME?)

     I don’t like to rain on anyone’s parade, but you need to know the filth being filtered into the hearts of your children. Above all- Guard your heart- for out of it flow the issues of life. The issues flowing out of the songs our youth are listening to are promiscuity, filth and demonic oppression!  We should be filling our hearts and mind with songs of praise, songs of thanksgiving, and songs of remembrance.Take some time and read the words our children are chanting to just a few of the songs in the dance 3 from Wii.
     I was at my child’s school event last month and they had a dj for the kids. All the songs from the Wii and radio were being played and blared throughout the school. I could not believe the hundreds and hundreds of kids who not only knew the words to the songs, but also every dance move to these songs. We are talking 5-9 year olds singing about sex, promiscuity, and evil- and dancing to it.
     We need to open our eyes. It’s not just the Wii and dance 3- it’s everything! The words in the songs, movies, tv shows, commercials, advertisements…it’s time to get serious about guarding our children and their hearts. 
      Wii dance 4 is bad too! I tried the country dance and had to return it because the animated dancer was half-naked with major cleavage. What is society trying to do to the next generation?  What are we teaching our sons and daughters? I hear my children singing these songs, their friends chanting them. and I …gasp! Even woke up singing some of this garbage in my heart.  The unedited versions of some of these songs are even worse. What I have written here is what you will hear on Dance 3.

   I’ve written some of the lyrics of the songs with a breakdown note below each one.  Wii Dance 3 has about 48 songs, this reviews only 10 of the 48.   Stop and take a listen……………………….

 Corrupting the next generation

1-Promiscuous Girl

You lookin’ for her in the day time with the light
You might be the type if I play my cards right
I’ll find out by the end of the night  
You expect me to just let you hit it
But will you still respect me if you get it
Promiscuous girl  Wherever you are
I’m all alone And it’s you that I want

and the girl sings: Promiscuous boy You already know that I’m all yours What you waiting for?
and he serenades:  Promiscuous girl You’re teasing me, you know what I want And I got what you need
[N:] Roses are red Some diamonds are blue, Chivalry is dead But you’re still kinda cute.

 


2-ET by Katy Perry 
 

You’re so hypnotizing  Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?
Your touch magnetizing

Feels like I am floating  
Leaves my body glowing
They say, be afraid  You’re not like the others Futuristic lover
Different DNA  They don’t understand you
You’re from a whole ‘nother world
A different dimension You open my eyes
Lead me into the light

Kiss me, kiss me Infect me with your love and Fill me with your poison
Wanna be a victim Ready for abduction
Boy, you’re an alien Your touch so foreign It’s supernatural Extraterrestrial
You’re so supersonic Wanna feel your powers Stun me with your lasers

Your kiss is cosmic Every move is magic
This is transcendental On another level Boy, you’re my lucky star
I wanna walk on your wave length And be there when you vibrate
For you I’ll risk it all

Break it down: I’m speechless. I feel sick. There is something really creepy going on here. There is nothing human about this song. …fill me with your poison, wanna feel your powers, are you a devil?.. Sounds like a serenade to a fallen angel. Trying to make this song okay will not work. She is messing with something that is dark & evil and sharing it with the world. “Hey kids! Now you can be gay, straight, or intergalactic!” When I sat to watch this on Wii, I got the weirdest feeling in my heart.  Just so wrong, and it looks like she is wearing ram horns.

3-Pump It-

wanna hate on us  (thank you for leaving out the N word, wii)
be envious
And I know why they hating on usJust confess, your girl admits that we da shhhhhhhhhhh When we play you shake your ………
(Shake it shake it) shake it girl
Make sure you don’t break it, girl
But chick backstage when we in town (ha)
She like man on drunk (fool)
She wanna hit n’ run (errr)
Yeah, that’s the speed
That’s what we do
That’s who we be
That’s what we do
That’s who we be
B-L-A-C-K -E -Y-E-D-P to the E, then the A to the S
When we play you shake your (…………silence)

Break it down:  so my kids can fill in the blanks they left here “ When we play, you shake your….”. Sure it could be anything. But really, How many things are left to shake?  And “girl admit that we da shhhhhhh”. Uhhh, anything could start with sh, I wonder what your kids sing to that?  The unedited version of this song uses the N word! Then we have the drinking, the hit and run…..

4-I don’t feel like dancing

Wake up in the morning with a head like ‘What ya done?’
This used to be the life but I don’t need another one
Good luck cuttin’ nothin’, carryin’ on, you wear them gowns
So how come I feel so lonely when you’re up gettin’ down?
But I don’t feel like dancin’ when the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance but my two feet can’t find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft shoe gentle sway
But I don’t feel like dancin’, no sir, no dancin’ today
Rather be home with the one in bed till dawn with you
So I’ll just pretend that I know which way to bend
And I’m gonna tell the whole world that you’re mine
Just please understand when I see you clapped your hands
If you stick around I’m sure that you’ll be fine
Why’d you break it down when I’m not in the mood?
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
Rather be home with no one if I can’t get down with you
Just lay me down As you float away into the shimmer light

Break it down: Somebody pass the Prozac! seriously! Someone down in the dumps – a deep dark hole-put this song and dance together. It totally spooks me out. Something very dark and sinister is in this video and music. “In bed with you till dawn…which way to bend”. Those are just some of the words chanted over and over.  I can’t figure out what is dancing. It’s not a girl, or a man…it’s an iceberg drag queen. I can, however, tell you that this dance threw my shoulder out and tore a ligament. Let’s check out the lyrics. “Rather be in bed till dawn with you, so I’ll pretend that I know which way to bend” ? What in the world…I don’t even want to go there…moving on….. “rather be home with no one if I can’t get down with you” Promiscuity at it best. Our teenagers and our children should not be singing this. despicable! 

5-Katy Perry: Teenage Dream

Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever
You make me feel Like I’m livin’ a
Teenage dream The way you turn me on
My heart stops When you look at me
Just one touch Now baby I believe
This is real
got drunk on the beach Got a motel
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever
I’m a get your heart racing
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
The way you turn me on

Break it down: Katy at it again, don’t know who this is with- a man, woman, an animal, or extraterrestrial. Background setting is a high school prom dance as she sings: runaway with me, just one touch, lets go all the way, got a motel, let me be your teenage dream tonight, ill let you put your hands on me tonight, no regrets.  I don’t think I can elaborate any more than the words of the song….  I hope your children aren’t putting this in their heart. You have been warned. It will affect them, it will become part of their life. Fair warning. You heard it.


6-Boom!

   It’s in Spanish and  translations vary- but let’s just say it’s promiscuous.

Break it down:  This is a perfect instructional for innapropriate dancing – not the dance you want to do at the family picnic, reunion, or Christmas party- nor the dance you want to see your 10 year old daughter dance to- and heaven forbid! No boys should ever ever dance this.  I couldn’t locate real lyrics, but the dancing is ungodly, that is putting it mildly. A few of the songs on the wii are in a different language,  finding the correct translation has been difficult (especially for the Bollywood rainbow hindu song) Try to figure out the lyrics, I give up. Super weird, but again, if you are looking for an instructional dance video on dancing inappropriately, this would be the one.


7- Lollipop
I said, sucking too hard on your lollipop,
or love’s gonna get you down,I said,
sucking too hard on your lollipop, or love’s gonna get you down.
Sucking too hard on your lollipop, or love’s gonna get you down,
sucking too hard on your lollipop, or love’s gonna get you down.
Say love, say love,
or love’s gonna get you down love’s gonna get you down.
Take a look at the girl next door,
she’s a player and a down right whore,
Jesus slows up, she wants more,
oh bad girls get you down.
Too much candy will rot your soul.

Breaking it down: I did my research on this song. The singer claims it’s an innocent song to his niece about love. That is a load of bull crap right there. Come on! The tune is catchy and awesome, the dance is super fun, but when I hear my girls singing “sucking hard on my lollipop”…something just doesn’t sit right with that. If my son was singing that I’d chase him out of the house. If you think it’s innocent, listen to your kid sing it as they dance- your insides will cringe. Makes calling the girl in the song a whore look like child’s play. Who would notice Whore and Jesus in the same sentence here… as we are trying to figure out why a dude would sing a song about sucking too hard on a lollipop as a way to teach his niece about love. PUHLEASE. How stupid do they think we are? If he is talking to his niece about love why does he say the neighbor is a whore. Hello! Can I get a witness out there? The dance is super fun but the lyrics weird me out. I’m not sure about the candyland background on this one, the “sock puppets” …I have no comment there. Maybe my mind is just in the gutter after reading all these lyrics. I need some holy oil over here.


8- LMFAO- Party Rock anthem

Party rock is in the house tonight Everybody just have a good time And we gonna make you lose your mind Everybody just have a good time
Party rock is in the house tonight Everybody just have a good time And we gonna make you lose your mind We just wanna see ya shake that
In the club party rock, lookin’ for your girl? She on my jock Nonstop when we in the spot, booty movin’ weight like she on the block Where the drank? I gots to know, tight jeans, tattoo ’cause I’m rock ‘n’ roll Half black, half white, domino, game the money, op-a-doe
Yo, I’m runnin’ through these ho’s like Drano I got that devilish flow, rock ‘n’ roll, no halo We party rock, yeah, that’s the crew that I’m reppin’ On the rise to the top, no lead in our zeppelin, hey We just wanna see you shake it now Now you wanna be, you’re naked now

Breaking it down: First off… the name LMFAO should be a warning sign. If you don’t know what it means, don’t look it up. “I’m running through these ho’s like drano” that should be a second warning. Again, I don’t know what gender it is that is dancing..I’m so confused? It’s a man? No..a woman? No.. a nephilim? I couldn’t tell you. Have no idear. We are told to “shake that” with drinks and a devilish flow. Just lose your mind and have a good time. Obvious message it to lose your mind. To be honest, the first thought that popped in my head when I heard these lyrics was the drugs and “date drugs” people drop in drinks in clubs. What else would make someone lose their mind while out dancing? 

9-Jump for my love

Hold me, I’ll give you all that you need Wrap your love around me You’re so excited, I can feel you getting hotter Oh baby, I’ll take you down, I’ll take you down Where no one’s ever gone before And if you want more, if you want more, more, more feel my touch Jump if you want to taste my kisses In the night then, jump, jump for my love Jump, you know these arms can feel you up Your love burns inside
Oh it feels so right  Come to me if you want me tonight, jump  I know my heart can Make you happy
Jump, you know these arms can feel you up  Jump in, you want to taste my kisses

Sure, this could be innocent. I’m sure she is talking about Hershey kisses in the night…..and she probably has a fever or some kind of infection. It’s just not a song I want my children singing.  We are all so programmed to these songs that we don’t recognize the impact they have on us.
 


10- Gwen Stephani- What are you waiting for?
( You stupid!!!- chanted in this song 4x to listener)

Born to perish, life is shortake a chance you stupid
Take a chance you stupid Take a chance you stupid
Take a chance you stupid
You’re still a super hot female
You got your million-dollar contract
I can’t wait to go back into Japan
Get me lots of brand new fans
Damn you’ve got some wicked style

Stop and image your child dancing to those lyrics. I’m sure Gwen was singing to herself, but I’m not quite sure ,hmmm. She couldn’t have gotten this far with that stinking thinking. I think she is calling everyone else stupid (hoes)- wording in the original version. Money, fame, materials, the normal american dream. Radio version says take a chance you stupid hoe. Nice, real nice.

Sidenote on a few more:
Baby one more time– another lovely song to dance to about hitting it one more time because their loneliness is killing them sung by cheerleaders.
Mamasita– spanish song with two dancers, one a women and the other being is beyond questionable. At one point I thought maybe it was michael Jackson? Skirt is so short, I’m pretty sure I saw some digital underwear.
Chemical Brothers Hey boy, Hey girl. If you are looking for an acid trip minus the acid, here’s your portal. Some twisting circular mayan looking background with what looks like a marijuana leaf as it’s center. Dancing indian chief is totally cracked out. Seems very occultic and if you turn the music down and just watch the dancing,  it looks like he is possessed. Reminds me of a 6th grade teacher I had who would beat our desks with a ruler. Demonic acid trip dancing. Totally weird.
Pata Pata– African? Cool dance, but we have no idea what words the tribal indian ladies are dancing to.
Giddy on up– super cool dance, but having my children sing along about her loser boyfriend who dumped her for another chick who wears bath and body works… not what I want to hear. Plus she is dressed like a call girl from the old westerns. Another depressing love gone bad story.
Beautiful liar: open up with two girls gyrating –not a family time move….another song about a love story gone wrong. Blah blah blah
Anja – “Dance All Nite”: a  few lyrics, you decide:  I drink Cristal champagne it’s only the best I sit in V.I.P, I’m above the rest, Give me more… Give me more… Give me more… I’m just a sexy girl With men around the world, Champagne and caviar Hotels and fancy cars
Bollywood Rainbow – “Kurio ko uddah le jana” It’s a Hindu dance song.. NO TRANSLATION FOUND! Can you believe this? Why can’t they make a Christian dance song?

Guard your heart above all else,
    for it determines the course of your life.
 Avoid all perverse talk;
    stay away from corrupt speech.
 Look straight ahead,
    and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Mark out a straight path for your feet;
    stay on the safe path.
Don’t get sidetracked;
    keep your feet from following evil.Proverbs 4:23

Bad Company Corrupts Good Character 1 Cor 15:33

Comments 6 Standard

Bad company corrupts good character. Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all. 1 Corinthians 15:33 Company: Homillee-ah=companionship, to be friends with, partnership (strongs)

Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers.

How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols?
For we are the temple of the living God.


As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them.

I will be their God, and they will be my people.
Therefore, come out from among unbelievers,
and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD.

Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you
And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty. 2 Cor 6:14-18

If God is walking with you, does He approve of the company you are with? The words spoken? The places you go?

We are 4 given commands:
1. Come out from unbelievers
2. Separate yourself from them
3. Do not touch or get near their filthy things
4. Do not team up with unbelievers

I Considered the questions Paul asked…
1. Can righteousness partner with wickedness?…well…no
2. Can light live with darkness? Uhmmm impossible
3. Can there be harmony with Christ and the Devil? Never
4. Can there be union between God’s temple and idol? No way!
5. Then why do you think a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? Because I’m wrong

This verse reminds us:
1. You are the temple of the Living God
2. He is your Father
3. You are His sons and daughters

Separate yourselves and you shall be my sons and daughters.

They can “shipwreck you”
When these people eat with you in your fellowship meals commemorating the Lord’s love, they are like dangerous reefs that can shipwreck you. They are like shameless shepherds who care only for themselves. They are like clouds blowing over the land without giving any rain. They are like trees in autumn that are doubly dead, for they bear no fruit and have been pulled up by the roots. 13 They are like wild waves of the sea, churning up the foam of their shameful deeds. They are like wandering stars, doomed forever to blackest darkness. Jude 1:12

Enjoy the company of those who call on the Lord with Pure hearts
If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.  Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 2 Timothy 2:22

Stay away from all believers who live idle lives and don’t follow the tradition they receivedfrom us.  For you know that you ought to imitate us. 2Thes 3:6

Stay away from them, but warn them as you would a brother or sister
Take note of those who refuse to obey what we say in this letter. Stay away from them so they will be ashamed. 15 Don’t think of them as enemies, but warn them as you would a brother or sister 2 Thes 3:6

“Stay away from people like that….
in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!  They are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence ofvulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires. 7Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.) These teachers oppose the truth just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses. They have depraved minds and a counterfeit faith. But they won’t get away with this for long. Someday everyone will recognize what fools they are, just as with Jannes and Jambres

I call it “Keeping a healthy distance” 1 Cor 5:9-13

When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin. But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin, or are greedy, or cheat people, or worship idols. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that. I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people. It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning. God will judge those on the outside; but as the Scriptures say, “You must remove the evil person from among you.

Associate: soon-an-am-ig-noo-mee: means to mix with, associate with, and keep company.

       This is different from the meaning of words used in other scripture (1 Cor 15:33/ Ps 106). which implies creating friendships, marriage, partnerships with unbelievers and those living in sin. It would be impossible to avoid every non believer. We do associate with them, but the scripture warns us not to joined in a relationship that could destroy our walk with the Lord. Be an example of the love of Christ and remember the people that Jesus came for – the sick, the lost, the captive, the sinners- be an example of Christ – but stay away from the sin that binds them. Putting all the scripture together, we can see that there is a line we are not to cross. We can associate with non believers living in sin, but we are not to team up with them or mingle to the point where we corrupt ourselves. Now about the believers who live in sexual sin- what would that say to the world if you were to form a partnership with them? Just think about it..on to the rest of my post…..

I teach my children that if their friends choose to be bullies and hurt others, they need to back away and find new friends to associate with. They still associate with them at times and are nice, but they are not to take part in the things they do.

What about marriage??? 1 Cor 7:12-23
 Now, I will speak to the rest of you, though I do not have a direct command from the Lord. If a Christian man has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to continue living with him, he must not leave her. And if a Christian woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to continue living with her, she must not leave him. For the Christian wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the Christian husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy. (But if the husband or wife who isn’t a believer insists on leaving, let them go. In such cases the Christian husband or wife is no longer bound to the other, for God has called you to live in peace.) Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you? And don’t you husbands realize that your wives might be saved because of you? Each of you should continue to live in whatever situation the Lord has placed you, and remain as you were when God first called you. This is my rule for all the churches. For instance, a man who was circumcised before he became a believer should not try to reverse it. And the man who was uncircumcised when he became a believer should not be circumcised now. For it makes no difference whether or not a man has been circumcised. The important thing is to keep God’s commandments. Yes, each of you should remain as you were when God called you.

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. Prov 13:20

You must influence them; do not let them influence you! Jeremiah 15:19

But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works Psalm 106:33-42
Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips. They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them: But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.

Mingle : aw-rab – to intermix, have fellowship with, mingle, partnerships

What was the trap? The snare that destroyed them? They were mingled among the heathen and learned their works.

What were the sins that they learned and lived? (nlt version)
1. They learned and adapted their evil customs
2. they worshiped their idols (worshipping things of this world –Eph 5;7-11)
3. sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons
4. shed innocent blood
5. polluted the land with murder
6. defiled themselves by their evil deed
7. adultery – their love of idols.

 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 2 Thes 3: 6 

As a Christian, I find that sometimes I have to step back and stay away from certain circles of people even though I like them and enjoy their company. I cannot stand with them when they make fun of others, when they mock the weak, gossip about friends, get drunk, use filthy language, live promiscuous lives or hurt others with their words. At times I can feel sad about this and feel left out, but Psalm 1 encourages me. The words remind me of His promises for me and lead me along the path that pleases Him. My life goal is to live a life pleasing to Him. When I stop to remember 2 Cor 6:14- that He walks me, it makes me really consider the people I mingle with – would the Lord approve of this conversation?

Psalm 1- Blessings for obedience

 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 1 instructs us:
1. Do not walk with the ungodly
2. Do not stand in the way of sinners
3. Do not sit in the seat of the scornful

Don’t participate in the things these people do Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. Don’t participate in the things these people do. For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.  Carefully determine what pleases the Lord.  Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them Eph 3-11

Don’t participate and don’t have it AMONG YOU –OR AROUND YOU.
 What should you keep away from? What is not for you?
1. obscene stories
2. foolish talk
3. coarse jokes
4. impurity
5. greed (idolater)
6. sexual immorality

Here’s our warning: Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. Don’t participate in the things these people do.
Warning: Some want to lead you astray from your fellowship with the Father and the Son 1 John 2:24-27

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul Prov 22:24

Instructions: 
1. Love others. 1 J 2:9 If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is still living in darkness. Anyone who loves another brother or sister is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble. But anyone who hates another brother or sister is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.
2. Be careful that we don’t fall into idolatry and begin to worship the things of this world. 1 J 2:15-17: Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.
3. Be Patient with others Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.Eph 4:2
4. Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection,and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all! Romans 9:12-16

Hear the Word of the Lord

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. Prov 13:20

So this is what the LORD says to his people: “You love to wander far from me and do not restrain yourselves. Therefore, I will no longer accept you as my people. Now I will remember all your wickedness and will punish you for your sins.” Jeremiah 14:10

The LORD has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said, “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make the LORD of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. Isaiah 8: 11-13

Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed. Deceit fills hearts that are plotting evil; joy fills hearts that are planning peace! No harm comes to the godly, but the wicked have their fill of trouble. The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth. The wise don’t make a show of their knowledge, but fools broadcast their foolishness. Prov 12:18-23

All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants. John 3:20-21

Follow the steps of good men instead, and stay on the paths of the righteous. For only the godly will live in the land, and those with integrity will remain in it. But the wicked will be removed from the land, and the treacherous will be uprooted. Proverbs 2:20

If you have ever had to separate yourself from certain things, events or people because of your beliefs, you can understand how Jeremiah felt: Jeremiah 15: 15

I said “LORD, you know what’s happening to me.
Please step in and help me. Punish my persecutors!
Please give me time; don’t let me die young.
It’s for your sake that I am suffering. 
When I discovered your words, I devoured them.
They are my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name,
O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies. 
I never joined the people in their merry feasts.
I sat alone because your hand was on me.

I was filled with indignation at their sins. 
Why then does my suffering continue? Why is my wound so incurable?
Your help seems as uncertain as a seasonal brook,
like a spring that has gone dry.” 
This is how the LORD responds:
“If you return to me, I will restore you so you can continue to serve me. If you speak good words rather than worthless ones, you will be my spokesman. You must influence them; do not let them influence you!  They will fight against you like an attacking army, but I will make you as secure as a fortified wall of bronze. They will not conquer you, for I am with you to protect and rescue you. I, the LORD, have spoken!  Yes, I will certainly keep you safe from these wicked men. I will rescue you from their cruel hands.” 

  But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.  So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.

Dear children,
   Don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous.  But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.  So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God. o you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father. And in this fellowship we enjoy the eternal life he promised us.

    May the grace of the Lord be with you. May He fill you with all knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Be a light in this world. Work hard to please Him. He loves you.
