What God Hates

Scripture: Galatians 5 v 13 - 21; Revelation 3 v 5-6. 


In South Africa in recent days we have heard some prominent Communist politicians imploring the Church to teach people good morals. They have seen that sin, corruption, murder, rape, theft etc have spiralled way out of their control. They are under the impression that if you regularly attend church the goodness will grow on you. It may, of course, but unless you change the base nature of man, which is exceedingly sinful, the goodness may last till lunchtime and be completely missing by nightfall.

Communism denies the very existence of God stating that the State is God so the onus is on them to keep the sinners perfect.   Our Communist government also legalised abortion and gay marriage which are contrary to the ways of God.  I have observed across the world over the past ten years that every government that has legalised abortion and gay marriage has either become very ungovernable, or hit by many disasters of "Acts of God" description, or both, which is the desired aim of satan for this world.  Anarchy and chaos create the right environment for the Antichrist to reign. (Please send a copy of this message to Cyril Ramaphosa).
ONLY the indwelling of Jesus Christ can make this change. The only way to get Him into your heart is to be born again (see previous articles). Once He has come in every sin you have ever committed is forgiven and washed away by the application of His shed Blood. So you have a clean slate on which to build a new Christian life. 

 But you are still carnal or a baby Christian. All babies need love, cleanliness, attention and milk to grow and thrive. So do Christians. So if you neglect to read your Bible, pray to your Father  and have good fellowship with other Christians your life will not change.  We intend to make God our Father happy with us so we can be blessed and even helpful to others. So it may be wise to find out what He really hates and if you continue doing these things you will find yourself cut off from Him completely. And when you want to fix that its hard.

 In Galatians 5 Paul speaks of the lusts of the flesh and the works of the flesh.   Have a good look because these are things God hates.

Verse 19 - Adultery; Fornication ie every type of sexual activity outside marriage; uncleanness - all forms of porn, bad language, fantasy sex, perversions like homosexuality. ogling, prostitution, and lust; lasciviousness - inciting to lust.  

 Idolatry - worship of idols whether carved or human ie celebs, sports stars, politicians, your children - worship means you hold them in higher esteem than Jesus Christ your Saviour; Witchcraft - it has many forms but in essence it is the control of any human or situation by a spirit other than the Holy Spirit. EG. Blackmail, rape, casting spells, invoking curses, doing harmful rituals over music albums that would influence the hearers to sin.

Then there is hatred; arguments; wrath; strife; cults; Heresies ie false doctrines in the church of which there are many eg worship of Mary and other saints; baby baptism (stems from Baal worship where babies were sacrificed after being named and water sprinkled on their heads); the Toronto experience (can't call it a blessing as it is a False Revival), I asked the Lord years ago about it and He said this Acts 27 v 10 - I perceive this voyage (Toronto) will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and the ship (foundations and doctrines of the church) but also of our lives. The spirit that comes upon those involved in Toronto is NOT the Holy Spirit but an Eastern demonic spirit called the Kundalini. The exact same manifestations as in Hindu religious ceremonies is observed in Toronto meetings.

Envy and covetousness; Murders including abortion; drunkenness; revelling.  

Paul says he has warned of these things repeatedly that those Christians who continue in these practices will lose their salvation and their names will be blotted out of the Lamb's Book of Life. Revelation 3 v 5-6 - the words of Jesus - "He that overcomes (these sinful practices) the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name (on the Day of Judgment) before my Father, and before His angels." The words in brackets were added by me.   

So to please your Heavenly Father you need to distance yourself from old habits and sins. This is not a drill, soldier of the Cross, this is reality. The end of the world can happen in our lifetime. God sent Jesus to give us the opportunity to escape the sinful world, which is always marketed as filled with fun and excitement, to enter into true joy, peace and love in His presence. This is what worldly people crave but think they find it in pills, booze and much sex. Those three items have caused more heartache and misery in this world than anyone can imagine.  When you have overcome these problem areas then you will start to grow towards God's will and purpose for your life.

So precious person reading this message, turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face, and the things of this world will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

Prayer: Heavenly Father I want to be a pleasing child and spend eternity in Your Kingdom. Forgive me for letting the enemy entice me back into his evil realm. I repent of my worldly ways and ask You to cleanse me with the Blood of Jesus. I will put my trust in You and let You lead me away from sinful practices into the glorious liberty of Your love, peace and joy. In Jesus' name. Amen.
