It is about the WAY

Church Pushes or Transgender Leadership

From December:  Ish-Bosheth – (Ish-bosheth means “the man of shame”)
If Saul represents traditional religion and judging by sight and sound, and outward appearances, Ish-bosheth, being his son in the flesh, will be an amplified version of all these and will seek to govern by illegitimate authority.  Traditional churches will rise in power, but only because they will sense that authority has been removed (Saul is dead) and so they will try whatever means to remain on top, and many on the political left AND political right will seek to side with them; they will not be interested in seeking God but rather power.  Watch the mainstream denominations this year.  Many will come out of them like the men of Jabesh-gilead, and give a proper burial, but many will join them as well.

Psalm 1:6 For the Lord knows THE WAY of the righteous,
But THE WAY of the wicked will perish.

Galatians 6:6 The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Do not be deceived – the narrative that is promoted is that the LGBTQ community has been rejected by the church for who they are and this is not the case.  THE WAY has been rejected.  THE PRACTICE and the IDENTIFICATION according to SEXUAL PREFERENCE has been rejected.  THE PRACTICE OF SIN and what IS UNNATURAL has been rejected.

But the carnal mind will continue to make this about the people themselves.  I love my LGBTQ friends.  I have several.  They know what I believe, but they know I love THEM!

Let’s remember it is about the WAY; the PRACTICE OF.

Romans 2:1 Therefore you have no excuse, everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things.

What things?   See Romans 1.

God is telling THE CHURCH not to pass judgment on the PERSON who commits a sin, but rather the PRACTICE OF SIN.

Psalm 86:10 Teach me Your way, O Lord;
I will walk in Your truth;
Unite my heart to fear Your name.

 

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted

wrong and rightFrom December’s Word:
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.  While I have given you authority to walk in and govern, the lawless will continue to illegitimately take the authority upon themselves to control and manipulate.  You will see the darkness of witchcraft come out of hiding and be broadcast through the airwaves, the television and radio and over the internet.  I say “increase” because it is already happening but it will soon threaten your ability to be free with what you speak.  You’ve seen a little of it, but it will be everywhere and in your face.  Pay attention to My Spirit and I will give you what to say in appointed times.”

 

The Righteous and the Wicked Contrasted.

Psalm 1:1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord knows THE WAY of the righteous,
But THE WAY of the wicked will perish.

 

How blessed is the man who does not seek advice or direction from those who hate righteousness, the rule of law, the people of God

Nor stand in the pathway, the walkway, watching them on their journey

Nor participate in the mocking along with the rest of the scoffers

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, the Wisdom that comes from it

And in His law he meditates, thinks on, ponders, considers, mulls over day and night

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season- immovable, solid, unshakeable; able to not only be provided for with sustenance to live long but be refreshment to many, be shelter to others, and sustenance for many more.

Its leaf does not wither, though it be shaken, it returns

And in whatever he does he prospers, provision is multiplied

The wicked, the lawless, those who hate the rule of law and righteousness, lovers of self and not fellow human beings and certainly not the Lord (though it appears so until they are angered), are not so – they are not stable but are easily provoked, easily rattled, easily shaken to the core and then scream out in protest when the storms come

They are like the dandelion spores those little white puff balls easily blown and driven by a child’s breath

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment; oh they will be there, they just won’t be able to stand

Nor sinner’s in the assembly of the righteous; the ones they have mocked and murdered and hated by destroying their livelihoods – nope they won’t assemble with them because they have already received their reward – the praise of the family of the wicked

For the Lord knows the WAY of the righteous – yes He knows the heart and the intent but He also knows the WAY.  The WAY they continually live their lives when nobody else is looking on

He also knows the WAY of the wicked; the lawless.  This way will perish.

*******************
It is so easy for me to get on social media and get trigger finger.  It is SO easy for me to see a comment that is completely vile and want to tap tap tap away and let that one have it – but for me, that would be standing in the pathway of sinners and sitting in the same seat as the scoffers.   What good is it?  Will anyone hear?  Will things change?   If I thought so, I wouldn’t be on social media, I would be preaching somewhere in some capacity.   It’s easy to use social media as my platform if I don’t’ really have one.

Yet in the last few days I’m seeing that very thing happen.  Hollywood has-beens and wanna-be’s, those who no longer have a platform and those who want one, are tearing people down in the most vile, horrific way.  The rescuer in me wants to come to the aid of the targeted victim, the mother in me wants to protect, the grizzly in me wants to take the vile perpetrators to task, but the righteous woman of God in me, who I truly am, knows that the Lord is more than able.

So if I only have an audience of One, I am content.  My way is stable.  And so is the way of many others, even those who have a larger platform and are in the position to make difficult decisions regarding others.

It’s about knowing your authority and staying within it.    “Pay attention to My Spirit and I will give you what to say in appointed times.”   Learn what your authority is and pray with boldness that the Way of the Lord is established and that the WAY of the wicked will be stopped.  You have that authority to do so.
