TRUE SAINTS ARE OFFENDED BY SIN (by benaiah juma).
Pro 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Those who do not hate sin are children of the devil. Sin is the antithesis of God and anyone who is in Christ Jesus will be offended by sin. If you do not hate sin although you may have repented of all your sins you will not at all enter the kingdom of heaven. If you do not hate sin it is an indication that there is no trace of righteousness or holiness in you. Righteousness on an individual’s soul makes the person to be offended by sin.
When you were unsaved those of you who are saved now, realize that before you were saved you were never offended by sin and maybe you even took pleasure in unrighteousness, but now since you are saved some of you feel embarrassed of your past life and despise the way you have been living a reprobate kind of lifestyle, a life without Jesus Christ.
The word of God tells us about a righteous man named Lot who was a gate man of Sodom. Lot was continuously upset with the way the sodomites were living around him. Lot was vexed continuously because he was a believer in the lord. If you have any trace of faith in your soul you will and you must be offended by sin, if sin does not offend your soul, you are a child of the devil.
2Pe 2:7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
2Pe 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
God will always deliver the seed of the righteous and destroy the seed of the serpent. Just as Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed by fire and brimstone giving warning to people who will live ungodly and delivered just lot, is exactly the same way it is going to happen to sinners who take pleasure in sin. If you are offended by sin it proves that you have some real faith in your soul. This is the discernment that people can use to distinguish people who have real faith in our lord and savior Jesus Christ from phony Christians. If you see a Christian who is not offended by sin it shows that they are fake and not genuine.
Anyone that has accepted the lord Jesus Christ with their whole hearts will hate what the lord Jesus Christ hates and love what he loves. If you enjoy sin and it is grieving your creator, you do not know the lord Jesus and He also does not know you and you will have your part in the lake of fire and brimstone for all eternity.
The fear of the lord is to hate evil. Hate evil and abstain from all appearance of evil. The right attitude that you are supposed to have towards sin is hate.
Do not play and enjoy sinning, sinning and sins will lead to weeping and gnashing of teeth in the afterlife. God will always deliver those who are vexed by sin and destroy everyone who is not grieved and offended by sin even if they are speaking in tongues, evangelists or preachers, if you do not hate sin you are an enemy of God and a friend of the wicked one.
Eze 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
Eze 9:5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
Eze 9:6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
Eze 9:7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.
Eze 9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?
Eze 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.
Eze 9:10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.
Praise be to the king of kings and Lord of Lords our Lord Jesus Christ.
