"Broken Before Him"

{Note from writer: This post is not referring to any one "sin" or group...it is for ALL of us....a general message.}

"A little leaven leavens the whole lump. What does this mean?, you ask.

Leaven symbolizes sin. Sin is like poison. Put a drop of (potent) poison in a drink and it will contaminate, or poison, the entire drink. One drop will do it.

One sip of poison will kill you, as it spreads thoughout your entire body. So it is with sin.

Sin WILL eventually (some sooner, some later) sicken and destroy your body. It is vicious, evil, unrelenting, diabolical and strong. Sin is Satan's playground.

***

Sin opens the doors to the Devil. Sin will bring you down: either suddenly, or bit-by-bit; piece-by-piece. Often, it is a subtle, time-consuming process. It is a gradual slipping away. It is an ever-increasing apathy. It is a growing deadness and hardness of heart.

When sin is tolerated, it softens (weakens) the conscience: it makes right seem wrong and wrong seem right. Your conscience will be worn away; eroded into apathy and *tolerance*.

Tolerance, or acceptance, is a dangerous concept. It say *anything goes* and *to each his own* and mocks the Word of God. It mocks Jesus Christ.

It mocks the reality of forgiveness, the sin nature, redemption, and salvation.

No doubt, there IS sin. There IS Satan. There IS self. These three are bad for you.

Of course, there IS mercy. There IS grace. There IS forgiveness. And there IS deliverance.

But...in order to truly receive these gifts from the Father, one must be abased: become humble and broken before Him. He cannot mold a hard heart. He cannot, and will not, come against your will. It is your choice.

He is not willing that ANY should perish, or fall away. He will save to the uttermost: the farthest, worst-case scenarios. He will rescue the farthest sinner. (the worst)

But, He will not be mocked. He is Holy. He is true. He is love. And He is justice. He upholds His Word. He loves you, but hates your sin. He wants you to realize the evil of your sin.

He wants you to HATE your sin (or sins), like He does. He is good. He wants the best for you: for all of you.

***

Come before Him in humility. This is not the last time He will plead with you...but you can never be sure of YOUR opportunities. NOW is the day of salvation.

Come to Him, now: just as you are. Filthy, sin-filled, lust-filled, corrupt, unclean, addicted, wasted, lazy, slanderous, jealous, hateful, spiteful, fearful, cowardly, manipulating, greedy, controlling, blasphemous,

evil, devilish, full of occult, ful of fantasy, full of pornography, full of racist thoughts, full of insanity, depressed, schizophrenic, bipolar, psychotic, possessed, gossippers, whisperers, mutterers;
sorcerers, witches, psychics, Masons, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, atheists, agnostics, religious spirits, proud attitudes, traditional, denominational, Indian-mystics,
gluttons, mean-spirited, angry, rage-filled people:
all of you fit in some of these categories.

You are ALL selfish at times. Much change is needed. (A revolution in the Spirit, perhaps?)

Enough for now: think on these things. They are for your benefit. Be warned, be helped, be loved. I love you, My children. I care for you. -- -
