Who shall separate us from Christ?
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present, nor future things, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. –
Romans 8:31 to 39
No one and nothing can separate us from the great love that our God and Father, the loving Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of God has for us, his beloved children. Our God is the one who teaches, guides, comforts, warns, encourages, strengthens, restores, frees, saves, revives and gives eternal life. Only our God Wonderful may favor us with his amazing grace and awesome power.
The enemy of God knows it all. So he lives doing the possible and the impossible to hinder our communion with the Holy Trinity. The Lord Jesus Christ had warned us when he told us that if he himself, who was the master of the house had been persecuted maligned, teased, mocked the way it was, then imagine what they would not do with us, we are only unprofitable servants?
The fact is that we live in a society full of vain philosophies, disbelief, separation from God, disrespect to God's commandments and especially a huge lack of love and fear of our God Almighty. People give much value to what they watch in movies or read in magazines and books and do not seek to learn the true and only source of wisdom which is the powerful Word of God.
Taking care that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ; Colossians 2: 8
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; 5 destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; – 2 Corinthians 10: 4
These vain philosophies is that the world places in the hearts of those who do not yet know the true God, the Lord Jesus Christ. All these philosophies and thoughts are absolutely things of men and add nothing of real and fruitful in the lives of believers. Teachings that are empty only do lead the children of God of his great and unique creator.
These teachings are empty philosophies, thoughts and practices related to horoscopes, pagan calendars, sects, divination, sympathies, mythologies, legends, myths, and many teachings of men. Such teachings are used by the enemy of God to erect barriers and fortresses around those who live trapped in these practices and thoughts. These barriers and fortresses have solely the function of not allowing God's children do not have access to wonderful and redeeming grace of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. With this, the enemy wants only that these no's people to hear the redeeming Word, and thus are not liberated, saved causing them to lose and do not have access to eternal life next to the Holy Trinity.
12 And indeed all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however, continue in the things you learned, and you have been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus . 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; 17 That the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:12 – 17
Many people are still enslaved by the enemy because they prefer to pay more attention to the teachings of men and not the teachings of our God of Love. So the Word of God warns us saying that we err much when we do not read the Scriptures. Too often we are in a meeting at work, at school or even with our families and observe or hear people concern themselves with these philosophies and teachings of the enemy.
When we are faced with such people is very complicated, we should not be rude, but with much love, we should seek to teach and warn these people about the terrible deception in which they meet.
At the same time we must be very careful not to get angry with the dissenting comments and the challenging words that some of these people play in our faces, such as: Who is God? God does not exist? You are fanatic / a! Are you crazy / a! Are so many offensive words are liable to be listening out there that comes a time that we were about to lose his balance. In the face of such words and much unbelief it is not uncommon for a servant of God should be angry on size disregard the lack of fear of God.
Dear! However, we must be very careful with such people and the comments that they emit. Because these people being directed by the very enemy of God, they only want to bombard our communion with the Lord of the worlds most high. So, in our small or great anger, we must be very careful not to sin and not end up giving a bad witness. Because that is exactly what the enemy wants. He wants to take the shaft us, get us out of balance and perfect communion with our God of Love.
God's Word warns us:
9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10 When divisive man after the first and second admonition reject, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned. – Titus 3: 9 -11
10 According to the grace of God given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it; But let every man how he builds on it. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 And if anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 the work of each will become manifest; for the day shall declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test what sort of work each. – 1 Corinthians 3:10 – 13
1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons, 2 in hypocrisy speaking lies and have their own conscience seared, – 1 Timothy 4
1 I charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 Because time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but having itching to hear nice things, heap to themselves teachers according to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, but will turn to myths. 5 But you, be sober in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. – 2 Timothy 4
Thus, with ideas that are seemingly harmless and pleasant to the ear, many prefer to give more value to the enemy that speaks of what our God teaches us in his Letter of Love. These people are going away from God and putting more and more away from the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our God and Father, in His infinite Mercy and Grace rescued us from the dark world and led us into the light of your beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who through his magnificent and infinite donation gesture, gave us the honor of We live eternally next to our Great God beside Him and his Holy Spirit.
However, so we can have access to all the benefits that our Father has set in, we should listen and strive to put into practice the teachings of our Beloved Lord Jesus Christ which should be the one and only teacher of our lives.
Now, son, give me ears and not decline from the words of my mouth. – Proverbs 5: 7
A big hug and Stay in the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
