I woke up the other day with the word Cortex system. I had no idea what that was or what it meant. I did a search and it turned out to be a diabolical software game that a husband and wife created. I didn't spend any time on this page for obvious reasons. But what came to mind are how many believers are playing with the devil and making justifications for it. It's an innocent game of...you fill in the blank. This is gambling beneath the feet of Jesus as the Roman soldiers did for his clothing.
Look up my brethren, it is Jesus nailed on the cross where His blood is crying out for your sins to be forgiven, dripping on the ground where the dice has made its call.
We know Jesus is no longer on the cross, His redemption made a way for us to be saved from the eternal fire of hell. Why do we want to play in hell's playground when He saved us from it? Would we allow a child to play in flames when a house is burning?
God's word speaks of hindrances to our faith.
Hebrews 12:1 (KJV)
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Which might those be, anything that entangles us, grieving God's Holy Spirit.
Galatians 5:1 (KJV) Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
2 Peter 2:20 (KJV) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
What if you are not entangled yet and want to see how close to the chains you can get? This is called playing with fire my dear brothers and sisters. Satan is a deceiver and liar and if you are that close then you have already been deceived.
Why do we classify sin as in light sin, medium sin or deep sin? We justify sin by giving it titles we can live with. We don’t get to sample sin and put a label on it. The blood of Jesus only bled one way as a sacrifice.
When we see a dirty pool of water do we run and dive right in, usually not.
When deception comes in we begin to see that dirty pool of water as refreshing to the eyes. The grime and filth appears to float on top from time to time. Why not get your feet wet. It's a hot day and you have nothing better to do. So your feet begin to wade through this slush because you have been deceived.
You know where I am going with this. Yes, the time has come for the body dunk as you have grown accustomed to your new surrounding pleasure.
You have become fully immersed in a slush of evil and darkness, you call it good because it satisfies your flesh. Who cares if God had warned you, who cares if this pit of sinking sand will be destruction to your life and soul.
It's the pig wallowing in the mud. Where do the demons like to go and hide?
Mathew 5:12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
Brothers and sisters God did not mean for us to act like pigs, we were made in the image of His likeness, washed by the blood of the Lamb. We are precious in His sight.
We need to examine which hindrances are keeping us away from fully developing a relationship with our Living God. We know what sin does, it pushes our hand against Him to keep God at bay so we can continue doing what we want to do. God loves honesty. He knows our struggles. Jesus was here on earth, He identifies with us and yet never sinned.
There is a way out of this system, this game that the enemy wants to play with our lives, don't let him. Destruction of souls is waiting for those who won't get out of that mud pit. Do you really want to sink in that mud pit when freedom is waiting at your door to pull you out. Jesus is stretching his hand out to you, take it and you can be set free, washed clean, be made new.
True victory is waiting; Jesus made a way for it to happen. Don’t waste another moment in the grime of that pit which will swallow you up whole. Rather God will make you whole in Him, a beautiful vessel to glorify Him. Do not listen to the lies of the enemy. Hell is not paradise nor participating in the things of hell satisfy, it will be your destruction.
John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
