COMPROMISERS ON THE WORD OF GOD WILL HAVE THEIR SELF TO BLAME ON THE LAST DAY
COMPROMISERS ON THE WORD OF GOD WILL HAVE THEIR SELF TO BLAME ON THE LAST DAY
2 Corinthians 1:20 “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”
James 5:12 “But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.”
According to the wordweb dictionary, compromise means:-
1. A middle way between two extremes
2. An accommodation in which both sides make concessions
Looking at the above definitions of compromise, you will discover that it has to do with making concessions or standing in-between two things. To be understood better, compromise simply means give and take. In the world system, it is often said that ‘if you cannot beat them, join them’, meaning you should blend with them and never prove to be different. This is a clear case of compromise as this will certainly rob you of your integrity and uprightness when you decide to dance to the tune of the music as played by the world. But in the Christian circle, we are warned never to involve in compromise declaring that a man that swear to his own hurt and turning not away is the man that will ascend the hill of GOD. “LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. HE THAT SWEARETH TO HIS OWN HURT, AND CHANGETH NOT. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.” Psalms 15:1-5. In fact the Bible further warned us not to join the multitude to do evil. “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment” Exodus 23:2. Following the multitude which means to compromise almost rock the salvation sheep of David until he retracted his steps. Psalms 42:4 “When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.” Choose to be separate and different from the world even if you are a one-man soldier and you will surely not lose your reward in heaven. 2 Corinthians 6:17 “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
The Almighty GOD has set a standard before us to follow in order to win and gain heaven. This standard as strict and tough it appears can never be bend or soften to favour any particular individual or group of persons. The same word of GOD will be used to judge every human being on the surface of the whole earth John 12:48, which has no respect to race, religion, creed, ethnicity, status, position, rank, achievements, colour, country or continent. GOD is a respecter of no one neither does His word (the HOLY BIBLE) has respect of persons too. Acts 10:34 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.”
Therefore, as countries and institutions have governing laws and policy put in place to checkmate violators and bring them to justice, the HOLY BIBLE is the supreme constitution for gaining heaven. If you therefore desire of making heaven in the rapture or at your death, you MUST as a matter of priority follows its lay down rules and order. You MUST obey the LORD whether it is convenient or not convenient. Adding and subtracting from the original standard of the Bible is a compromise and this will certain take your place out of heaven or add to your eternal punishment you will face after your physical death on earth. Revelation 22:18 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
In Psalms 19:7, the Bible declared “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.” The perfect LAW of GOD (the BIBLE) is capable of converting the soul if you yield to its requirements and regulations. Twisting the word of GOD to favour and satisfy your carnal lifestyles and appeal to your inordinate emotions is compromise. You must realise that you don’t live nor die to yourself Romans 14:7, which should ordinarily spark the fear of GOD in your life never to compromise on the word of GOD.
When Abraham was told by GOD to circumcise his foreskin as the token of the covenant between him and GOD, Abraham never argued with GOD by listing options for him. Even though it was the very first time that such a practice will be carried out since the creation of the world, Abraham though an old man by then yielded to the HARSH demands of GOD. He accepted the pains and agony of cutting the foreskin, a thing he would have objected if he was to use his carnal reasoning. And today, Abraham becomes the father of faith for simply foolishly obeying the dictates of GOD which were very contrary to his belief and initial practice as a human being. Today, men are singing ‘Abraham blessings are mine’ but they are never willing to be obedient to the commandments of GOD as Abraham did. Genesis 17:10 “This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.”
Therefore, I have come across a lot of things and Christians in confusion regarding some practices and belief. Why some used revelations and divine encounters to measure their obedience on the word of GOD, others simply write them off arguing that these things are burdens on the Christians today and never a requirement for making heaven. Well, whether revelation or no revelation, the foundation of GOD “standeth sure and GOD knows those that are His” 2 Timothy 2:19. Irrespective of your position to see word-to-word in the Bible condemning some practices in the body of CHRIST today, and of course you will never see it written in black and white, your conscience is with you that often tells you your wrong doings even as stacked wicked sinners without the knowledge of CHRIST at all. This therefore makes you to be inexcusable before GOD today despite the belief and practice you held Romans 2:1.
As men are arguing that you should show them from the Bible were some sort of things were condemned or approved before they will believe and adhere to it including sexual positions between married couples, I want to point out that despite the numerous scriptural references condemning some practices as seen today even the church, men have chosen to rather pleased themselves rather than GOD thereby wilfully disobeying the word of GOD 2 Timothy 3:1-5. This is often seen as Christians today are claiming allegiance to GRACE and rejecting other requirements by GOD for our salvation. In fact to some Christians, the Old Testament is no longer of importance today. Only the New Testament suffices for all. And yet the Bible says “ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17. Here the Bible lays emphasis on ‘ALL’ bringing the Old and the New Testaments together. Again the Bible declared “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Matthew 5:18. This JESUS CHRIST was using to bring to our notice that as far the Bible is concerned, they remain the infallible word of GOD which abides forever, hence Psalms 119:89 declared “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”
Compromisers on the word of GOD, you people do not really know the danger you are playing with. The Bible in Psalms 138:2 declared “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: FOR THOU HAST MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME.” As fearful is the names of the LORD stands, yet He GOD magnified His WORD above all His name. No wonder GOD said in Isaiah 55:10-11 when He declared “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE, AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERETO I SENT IT.” I do honestly know that because you lack the fear of GOD, which is why you are compromising on His word as if GOD have now changed or repented just like humans. However the Bible says “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19. So all the word of GOD are pure and holy because it was only HOLY MEN that were inspired by HOLY SPIRIT that put the word into writing 2 Peter 2:19-21. Man, are you not afraid of GOD? Why do you want to go hell fire as a result of your compromise on the word of GOD?
Now, as many as looking for word-to-word reference in the Bible before they will accept the true holiness of the word of GOD are compromisers, and compromisers have no eternal life abiding in them. So it is your choice. 1 Corinthians 5:6 “Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?”
SEXUAL POSITION IN MARRIAGE
A lot of people are confused today regarding sexual positions between married couples especially in the Christendom. While a lot of people argue that irrespective of the position you and your spouse decided to take during sexual intercourse that such things have no eternal consequences. Others simply argue that missionary style is the only approved sexual position between married couples, a fact that most people aligned to divine revelation. Well although there’s no stated sexual position in the Bible, but common sense should teach you that man lying on top of the woman during sexual intercourse is the most convenient and idea way for intimacy. You that claim that sex is for pleasure only shows your lack of the purpose of GOD for marriage. Marriage is not for pleasure and therefore sex is not for pleasure either. In 1 Corinthians 11:9, the Bible declared “Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.” This clearly shows the woman was created to be under the authority of the man and in so doing, whenever the man climbs on top of the woman for sexual intercourse, the woman is submitting under the authority of the man. If a woman therefore climbs the man, it means the woman is usurping the authority of the man over the man and this practice will not be accommodated by GOD.
Also in Ephesians 5:22 & 23, the Bible says “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.” The husband being the head of the wife means the husband ought to be on top of the wife because the head is top of the body. Therefore irrespective of the angle you want to look at it, all these styles that you people copied from pornographic films and materials and executes in your matrimony are sins and wickedness. The world is supposed to copy the true Christians in everything including sexual position during intercourse and not the other way round. If you are therefore involved in wicked styles during your sexual intercourse with your wife/husband in the name of pleasure, please stop it now. Dogs, goats, fowl and all other animals have not changed their sexual positions since creation, why should man that was created in the image of GOD do so? Genesis 1:27. Paul says “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: ALL THINGS ARE LAWFUL FOR ME, BUT I WILL NOT BE BROUGHT UNDER THE POWER OF ANY.” 1 Corinthians 6:12. The choice is yours but as for me, I will always be on top of my wife during sexual intercourse and both of us are contented.
WOMEN WEARING TROUSERS
As most people argued that until they see word-to-word reference in the Bible that they will never accept the truth, this issue of women wearing trousers is one area they support wholeheartedly. Even though the word ‘trouser’ was never used in Deuteronomy 22:5, but with the practical design of the trouser and the position of the urinary organ embedded in humans by GOD, it is acceptably concluded that trousers was never meant for women but for men. And you that justifies its usage by women today simply because the word trouser was not used, you will have GOD to contend with on the judgment day because you think that you are now wiser than GOD. Beware! Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”
THE USE OF WEDDING RING
This erroneous practice have taken over the churches of today even as practitioners have no biblical backing whatsoever that accommodates this practice during wedlock. As you are looking for word-to-word reference in the Bible before you will accept the truth, what scriptural backing do you have for using rings to wed people in your church? Even our LORD JESUS CHRIST that was invited to a wedding feast in John 2:1-11, nothing of ‘ring’ was mentioned at all. No ‘ring’ or ‘wedding ring’ was also mentioned when the man in Matthew 22:1-13 organised a wedding for his son in the parable of JESUS CHRIST. So, where do you claim the origin of wedding rings from? From the Bible, or the world?
LESBIANISM AND HOMOSEXUALITY
Even as the Bible condemned these immoral and wicked practices, are men not doing it today? So, if men can rebel against the written word of GOD, is it the unwritten and unseen word they will obey? Romans 1:26 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”
THE USE OF JEWELRIES (Earrings, bangles, bracelets, neck chains, nose rings, etc)
The Bible strongly condemned its uses because they are ‘strange gods’ on the users, but do people have regards to the word in this direction these days? Genesis 35:4 “And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.” Even when the furiusness of GOD was visiting the Israelites, He commanded them to ‘take off’ these jewelries from their body lest they will be consumed. Are people not fashioning themselves with it today even in the house of GOD? Exodus 33:5 “For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: THEREFORE NOW PUT OFF THY ORNAMENTS FROM THEE, that I may know what to do unto thee. 6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.”
PAINTING OF THE BODY (MAKE UP)
The Bible says “in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life” Jeremiah 4:30. Has this practice of Jezebel not taken over the church today even though the Bible condemned it?
When the Bible says “Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.” Ephesians 4:28. Are there still people stealing today? But didn’t the Bible condemn it too? In fact, “Thou shalt NOT steal” says the commandment of GOD Exodus 20:15.
If you therefore claimed that most of the things some Christians are saying will take people to hell today will actually never take anyone to hell, then masturbation, smoking, hard drug pushing, 419ning, pickpocket, impersonation, forgery and other wicked practices today should never be condemned, in fact they should be encouraged since there’s no direct word-to-word reference in the Bible that condemned them.
Compromisers, YOU WILL SURELY HAVE YOURSELVES TO BLAME ON THE LAST DAY.
