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. 7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8 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. 2 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.
