Remember : Men's Fellowship and Meeting Saturday, May 8 at 8:00 A.M. March 31, 2010 Sunday is Resurrection Day. Let's come together to celebrate the Resurrection from the dead Of our Savior and Lord , Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 2:9-11 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. (any law greater than themselves) Presumptuous are they , self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13a And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. (NIV) 13a They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. …
Matthew 5 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least Commandments, and shall teach men so , he shall be called the least in the King-dom of Heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them , the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.
It is bad enough when any man chooses to sin. But when he leads others into sin, his sin is multiplied, And so is his judgment and damnation. Mark 9 (NIV) 42 "And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck."
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; They live in open sin , while remaining in the church, partaking of the Lord's Supper . They are spots and blemishes upon the church.
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: They live for sexual conquest , imagining every woman or man as their partner in lust . They teach that God's Grace overlooks such. Their heart is filled with greed , and they always desire more.
"Beguiling unstable souls." Unstable = unfixed; vacillating. They can not deceive men and women who have our minds made up to serve God. But those who love the world, its pleasures and its stuff, Are easily deceived by such teachers.
Those who are looking, always looking For an easy way out For a loophole in the True Scriptures, Such unstable souls are easily beguiled. God would not allow Balaam to curse the Israelites because they were God's own , But Balaam told the Moabites to send their women among them, and the Israelites brought the curse of disease upon themselves.
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet. Such people are dumber than a donkey. Only a fool denies God and His Word.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved forever. Their entire existence is a deception , and they easily deceive those in the church, who are drawn away of their own lust , And are easily enticed by sin.
The happiness and pleasure that they promise do not exist. Like a dry well, they promise but do not possess and can't give. Like a cloud with no rain, they promise blessing, but deliver a curse.
Isaiah 61 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes , the oil of joy for mourning , the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness ; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified. Every Promise of God is true.
