In the times that we now live, you are being asked to change your morality by accepting the immorality of the current world’s standards.
You are being asked to compromise God’s mind, His nature and character, by NOT obeying what He says in His word for fear of man, fear of evil (ISIS, Ebola, riots, etc.) fear of government, fear of what others think of you and your beliefs. There very well may be more fears.
You are being asked to destroy the planet by your actions, believers and children of God. And, this happens when the enemy and his evil kingdom tempts us to hold onto bitterness, accusations, jealousies, etc. within the family of God.
You are being asked to call evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil”) A “woe” is not a good thing. A woe is defined as: misery, troubles, trials, misfortunes, gloom, cursed. Is it really worth it to fit in?
Romans 1:16 “For I am NOT ashamed of the Good News of Messiah, for it’s the power of God for deliverance/salvation to EVERYONE who believes; to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
In our nation today, if I stand for what is right, I am biblically normal; but I am abnormal to the world.
In our families, churches/congregations, and relationships; if I stand for what is right, I am biblically normal; but to the world I am abnormal.
If you find yourself more worried about about “fitting in” with the mindset of the world and their “normal” then, you are ashamed of the Good News of Messiah and that should not be as children of God; as kings and priests. Why? Because that means you are overthrowing the power and authority of God and His kingdom by your very actions. It contradicts who He is; His nature, His character, His kingdom.
Romans 1:18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ALL wickedness, (including compromises for fear of man, evil, etc.) and unrighteous men (those who refuse to walk in the righteousness of God), who suppress (hide, water down, or weaken) truth in righteousness.”
Choose this day whom you will serve. If God, then you should reflect abnormal to the world.
If men, then you should fit in and look just like the world.
Matthew 10:33 “But whosoever denies Me before men, I shall deny before My Father in heaven.”
Don’t fit in. Stand out in God’s mighty power and faith!
