Judges 17: What happens when there is no authority in our lives? Judges 17:6 says In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. When we refuse to get into God’s Word and allow God to be Lord over lives we do whatever we think is right in our lives. For instance alcohol is one we seem to think that its ok as a born again believer to indulge. What the Bible says NOT to do and is very, very clear on the matter. It is NOT a grey area and there is NO greu area. It is black and white. In fact the Bible states in Proverbs 23:20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: If we desire to allow God to be Lord of our lives we need to get off the fence, because the devil owns the fence! When the Bible says abstain from filthy communication out of our mouths we need to do so and run away from that nonsense. It is not edifying and it makes one sound like fool! If we say that we are going to FOLLOW the LORD then we PROVE it! Saying is one thing, DOING is another.
Who is our authority in our lives? OURSELVES or the LORD? I think its time for us to examine ourselves and get serious about WHO we are in Christ. Realize we are BOUGHT with a PRICE and we do not OWN ourselves! 1 Corinthians 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
We are saved to SERVE! We are SAVED to SHARE the GOSPEL, to BE the Gospel, to LIVE the Gospel! OBEDIENCE is NOT LEGALISM! OBEDIENCE is realizing CHRIST is LORD and number one in our lives and what HE wants is what WE want!
Is Jesus OUR LORD or IS Jesus just our SAVIOR?
Love to all!

He is risen and He is coming back! Are you saved by the precious blood of Jesus?
Stop justifying our sin. Which part of thou shalt not do we not understand? Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
True Christians will hold each accountable and when someone starts to waiver approach them privately and tell them they are going down the wrong path. But instead Christianity has become a joke and no longer is there a final authority in their lives. They misquote the Bible just like “judge not” or “let him who has no sin cast the first stone.” Etc etc etc. America is spiraling down the toilet. Revivals don’t happen and have not happened since we chose to question the Word of God to be truth and have added and taken away from Gods pure and precious Word. We have liberal Christianity. Church organizations are allowing same sex marriages and homosexual pastors. Female pastoral leadership over the church is on the rise and the power of the truth has no longer any power. We have holiday church goers and sporadic attendance. We have Christians drinking alcohol like there is not problem with it. Why? Because we have uneducated Christians who cannot rightly divide the Word of God, we have weak men of God that are not willing to stand up for truth, even by themselves, we have no discipleship, we have no worship, we have no fear of the Lord, we have no love for the true Word of God! We have walked out from under the protective umbrella of the Lord Jesus Christ and we think we have kicked Him out when in reality Jesus never left WE did! This nation needs to repent and purge ourselves of sin and disobedience. Get back to the truth of the Word of God, get back to fearing the Lord out of reverence, get back to worship, get back to being godly men willing to LOVE our wives as Christ loved the church instead of LOVING our live in girlfriends. We need to get back to wives submitting (respect) to their husbands. We need to commit to purity and abstinence. We need to FLEE fornication! We need to LOVE the Lord thy God with all our heart soul mind and strength. Most will call this legalism, I call this Father knows best and you are disobedient. We ALL FALL SHORT! We ALL will continue in sin but when we ALL seek the face of the Lord the devil will be powerless in our lives!
Lord forgive us!
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
