Would it be you they were wanting to put out…? Sometimes it could be me, but God, knows the heart. God is the Ultimate Judge or really Jesus is the Judge because He took the penalty for our sins and god only hears and sees Him in our place.
Deceptions of the Last Hour
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a] Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.[b] 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
So after reading this which my sister talked to me about tonight. I could not help but think on my Bible study that I do in the mornings. The past week has been related to the Church your part, my part and Pastors part. Who we are to judge and how it should be done. Who we give authority to and who we listen to. Who should we keep as part of our body…
Before reading 1 Corinthians i read Matthew 18:15-20
Dealing with a Sinning Brother
15 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’[b] 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.
18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
19 “Again I say[c] to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
I praise God for convicting me and showing me the error of my thinking and my ways. I just pray for those who know and do not heed. For those who have been warned and even the Church has spoken to.
