Our God Loves and Hates Perfectly

Greetings Ambassadors of the Most High! I love that, God is the Most High! We can go no higher than Him for He is the Highest, Most Powerful and Most Awesome God! Excuse me while I shout! Hallelujah!!!

Don't you love that Scripture in Romans 8:38 that says nothing shall separate us from the love of God? While this is true and something to be cherished and celebrated, it is important to remember that sin does separate us from fellowship with God. There are people that God has loved and continues to love burning in Hell right now. That's why it is critically important for us as Christians to embrace a "lifestyle of repentance" and share that principle with those we lead to Christ. Sometimes people get it twisted thinking that once Saved they can live any old kind of way because God loves them so much. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sin being performed by any saint or sinner is totally offensive to God. He hates sin...period. That's why He sent Jesus to take away our foul garments of sin so we can be clothed properly with a robe of His righteousness. God does not make excuses for sin, nor does He wink and look the other way, no not even for those of us who have a solid relationship with Him. Don't believe me? Let's get the WORD on it.
Exodus 4:24-26 (New King James Version)
24 And it came to pass on the way, at the encampment, that the LORD met him and sought to kill him. 25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone and cut off the foreskin of her son and cast it at Moses’[a] feet, and said, “Surely you are a husband of blood to me!” 26 So He let him go. Then she said, “You are a husband of blood!”—because of the circumcision.

Here you have Moses chosen by God to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt and into the promised land. He had a relationship with God! But Moses disobeyed God. He was supposed to circumcise his son and he didn't. So as Moses is heading toward his assignment God meets him on the way and is getting ready to kill him. WOW!!!!!! Then his wife realizing what is about to take place, circumcises the boy. Notice what God does after that bloody act , it reads "So God let Him go." WOW again!!!!! This week as you go on your way and meet lost people think about how much God loves them, then think about how at any moment they might meet God in eternal judgment. This story should be sobering for sinner and saint alike. May we as Saints live circumspectly before God, always instantly repentant and mindful of just how much God HATES sin. May we also sense the urgency for those who at any moment may meet God in an unrepentant state. We must act on their behalf like Zipporah did for Moses and tell them of the blood that Jesus shed for them. God doesn't want ANY to perish. He wants them to enter eternity as a blood washed child of God, instead of a sin stained future occupant of Hell.

Be prepared, Be yourself, Be obedient and Be joyful


Prayer for Everyone BLESS YOU
