Learn the Path to Perfection in A World Full of Hate (Video)

So, how can we, “Learn the path to perfection in a world full of hate.” I believe there is a great desire to be perfect. We have always wanted the perfect haircut, the perfect set of clothes or the perfect marriage. It is in our human nature to want perfection. Yet, it’s a proven fact that very few find it and now we live in a day where most no longer desire it. Many, on the other hand, desires selfish power and control over others which has turned them into very hateful people. In a world full of bullies, antagonists and mean-spirited people there is no wonder that the world is so divided. Stay tuned for three amazing vocalists putting feet to our message.

Learn the Path to Perfection in A World Full of Hate

So, how can we, “Learn the path to perfection in a world full of hate.” I believe there is a great desire to be perfect. We have always wanted the perfect haircut, the perfect set of clothes or the perfect marriage. It is in our human nature to want perfection. Yet, it’s a proven fact that very few find it and now we live in a day where most no longer desire it. Many, on the other hand, desires selfish power and control over others which has turned them into very hateful people. In a world full of bullies, antagonists and mean-spirited people there is no wonder that the world is so divided. Where they tend to hang out with their own kind developing groups of like-minded people, sharing the same philosophy of life, the same political persuasion, the same goals and aspirations and the same moral compass. These divisions have caused a great deal of malicious attacks one against another. It’s difficult to scan the news headlines without seeing this vicious attack coming from once reputable organizations. Unfortunately, this will continue until we as a people desire once again to find the path to perfection.

They say that the easiest thing to do is to love those who love you. To honor and respect those who honor and respect you. The Bible says, “For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so” (Matthew 5:46-47). Jesus Christ pointed these divisions out among the people two thousand years ago and the divisions persist until this day. It’s what He says next that points us to the path that leads to perfection. Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). So, to be perfect is to look beyond our differences, to look beyond the rough exterior of another person and learn to look at their heart. This is exactly what Jesus Christ did when He walked among us. He went to lost sheep of Israel. He went to the poor, the disadvantaged and those rejected by the religious elite of His day, turning unlearned men into great men of God, as Apostles of Christ. (See Acts 4:13) Jesus Christ saw the possibility by looking deep within their hearts knowing that He could mold them and make them into the kind of men that they were created to be.

So how does this apply to us living in the 21st Century? We see the divisions and may not only feel helpless to do anything about it, but actually join in with fault finding or making malicious attacks against those who believe differently than we do. I believe we have all been guilty of this at one time or another, especially on Social Media. It’s been all too easy to run with our own group. To run with those who agree with us. The world takes great pride in establishing their polls giving special significance to them if a large number of people feel the same way. However, even within these larger groups there still tends to be disagreements and divisions, with some espousing their own opinion. It’s even more problematic among religious groups because they tend to separate over theological interpretation creating an infinite number of secs within the greater Church. Furthermore, their fear of losing their perceived holiness often leads to a lack of love between the groups. Let’s be very clear about something, to love someone we totally disagree with, who does not conform to our moral compass or belief system, does not diminish our holiness. God is said to love the entire world and I firmly believe that His holiness is still intact. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Clearly, we can and should love everyone while keeping our holiness intact. To do so will put us on the path that leads to perfection.

We must learn to look past all the confused and corrupt theology. To look past the gross immorality. To look beyond all the sin and hate. To look beyond the political position or party affiliation. To look past the fear of what they can do against us. To look at the heart of the other individual. To see the possibility of their redemption. That is exactly what the God of love did when He called you out of darkness to a marvelous light (See I Peter 2:9). We do not need to relax our morality to love others. In fact, we need it. We need the Law of God to show us how to love God and how to love one another. To obey His Law allows God to love others through us and puts us on the path to perfection. So, as we venture out of our comfort zone, not necessarily on Social Media, but in person, face to face we allow God to love others through us by following His beloved commandments. The Bible talks about being reconciled with our brother, agreeing with our adversary, turning the other cheek, giving to those who ask, and going the extra mile to name just a few (See the Sermon on the Mount). It talks about not resisting an evil person and in another place answering an individual with gentleness (See I Peter 3:15). The list could go on, but we have the Holy Spirit to guide us in building relationships outside our comfort zone always looking for an opportunity to rescue others in bondage to the enemy.

Dear friends, I cannot over emphasize the importance of allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us when we reach across the aisle to demonstrate our love, especially to an unbeliever or someone holding false Christian theology or to the person of a different world religion. We must maintain our righteousness even in the face of hostility always allowing God to lead. Only shake the dust off your feet and withdraw if we are led to do so. Do you want to be perfect in your obedience to Christ then utilize His Law to extend your Christian love to everyone you come into contact, without judging them? The Bible says, “If you really keep the royal law found in the Scripture, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself,’ you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it” (James 2:8-10). Dear children walk in obedience to the whole law and extend your love even to your enemy and you will be on the path that leads to perfection (See Matthew 5:43-44).

In conclusion, let me say that most people that are completely different than you and in need of your love are also in bondage to the enemy. The only way that they can escape their bondage is to hear the good news that Christ came to give them a new life in Him, where old things pass away and behold all things become new (see II Corinthians 5:17). The good news that they can overcome all of their emotional problems and even deal with the so-called psychological problems. In love they need to hear it’s much more than just a free ticket to eternal life or a life of rules and regulations. They need to hear about the joy and peace of the new life in Christ. If they can’t see it in you, they won’t believe that it exists. So, let me encourage you to get on the path to perfection today bringing God’s message to the world wrapped in love – love from the Father. Amen.

How Will the Beast Unite the Entire World to Follow Him?

He will unite all the warring factions. He will unite all the races. He will unite all the political parties. He will unite most all the nations to follow him by giving him their power. He will unite all the liberals and conservatives. He will unite the learned and the uneducated. How will he do it? How will the Beast unite the entire world to follow him? To not only give him their allegiance but to worship him. Of course, not everyone will. The few exceptions will be those who have had their names already written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Before I tell you what it is (please don’t skip ahead), let’s look at what won’t work. The things that will not unite everyone together as one. It won’t be Facebook or any other social media platform. In fact, the opposite is happening by throwing even more ridiculous and hateful opinions into the hopper. If anything, it’s gone a long way to divide the world into two major factions along with many other smaller factions drifting from one opinion to another.

As much as I would love to say Christianity will unite everyone together. I am afraid we have seen just the opposite. Over the years we have seen the spawning of new denominations and non-denominations each embracing their own favorite doctrine. We have become a world where everyone’s opinion is valid even if it is based on faulty interpretation of Sacred Scripture. Instead of the Church being the custodian of sound doctrine it too has followed the way of the world in allowing everyone to preach and teach what they feel instead of what Scripture says. Allowing everyone to freely interpret the text without putting it in its scriptural and historical context has led many astray. To not understand the original languages but believing many of the modern translations has cast many adrift into a sea of confusion. The unifying factor of the Church seen as of late has witnessed the great escape back into the world with many doing their own thing. Drifting from one opinion to another, never coming to the truth and unprepared for the things to come. Unfortunately, the Church will not unite the entire world together.

We can’t, at least at this juncture, point our finger at one political figure that would unite everyone together. Again, we have seen just the opposite. Politics driving a deeper wedge between the people with some casting their loving support behind the current administration while others are ready to run him out of town on a rail once he’s been tarred and feathered. Even the good works of diminishing unemployment, rising stock market, less taxes, and improved infrastructure will not unite everyone together. So, what is it? Before I give you the answer in God’s Word, let me say that we live in a world of unbelief of the one true God. They have turned away from God taking to themselves a mixed bag of beliefs from mythology to a mixture of spiritualism and new age thinking. In each of these is found the power of the paranoia, the belief that things can get a lot better with a miracle. That man somehow can chart his own destiny through the power of the supernatural and the untapped power of the miracle seen so clearly in the superheroes and the many gods of mythology. Well, all this will not save the world and it will not unite it as one. On the other hand, these people will be the first in line to be seduced to the power of the dark side.

So, let’s look at God’s Word to see this unifying power. The power that will seduce the entire world to the dark side. To turn them into minions of the devil and his legion of evil on earth. The Bible says, “And I beheld another beast coming out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon” (Revelation 13:11). This second religious type beast may appear to be very righteous upon his first appearance, desiring the best for everyone. We then quickly realize that he has great power to perform his own will and not that of the people’s. The Bible says, “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwells therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in sight of all men” (Revelation 13:12-13).

No matter what a person thinks or doesn’t think a true miracle like being raised from the dead or making fire fall from the sky or to cause an image to speak and have the ability and the power to put you to death will have a profound effect upon the entire population (See Revelation 13:14). No matter what they claim their religion or non-religion to be. It will bring tears to the weak minded and shock to the strong. It will humble the proud and cast the religious into a bed of greater confusion causing them to question their most sacred teachings. It will confound the wise and cause the scientist to re-examine his position on what’s possible. No matter how each considers these miracles they will all eventually give their allegiance to the beast. It will unite the entire world to follow the beast causing them to chant, “Who can stand against the beast.” Not only will they worship the beast but the one who has given the beast his power – the power of darkness, the devil himself.

That is everyone except those who have had their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. This will separate the wheat from the tares. It will separate the true believers in Christ from those who have simply followed the religion of their choice. For the first time in history everyone will be exposed. Their hearts will be an open book for all to see. There will be no more hiding behind a veil of deception, because everyone will know your heart. Everyone will be known by their exposed fruit. I am afraid this will be a great embarrassment to those who claim to be spiritual giants preaching and teaching with great authority. Let me encourage everyone who calls upon the Name of Christ to purify their hearts to humble themselves beneath the mighty hand of God. For the time is short. Things may change in the blink of an eye. Are you prepared?

We may feel as though we are on the right side of history. On the other hand, … Christian persecution is much closer than you think. Please share with others.
