"Pride goeth before a fall"....an expression I often hear growing up, along with ; "this one or that one is too big for their britches". It denotes someone who is prideful, haughty or otherwise disrespectful of something they ought not to be. Essentially, the overall taste it left one with was that person was behaving foolishly or callously.
Who hasn't hear someone say something to this effect... "I don't need God, the Bible or rules; I do just fine all on my own" etc., etc. Followers really don't care because we do not do what we do in order to be observed or credited, we do it for the Lord out of Love, respect & reverence. So, that mockery is truly against the one who holds the power of life and death in His hands, the Lord determines the final destination of every soul that ever existed! God will not suffer to be mocked, of this you can be sure!
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Provers 19:29Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.
Proverbs 3:34Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
II TIMOTHY 1:8-9. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel, according to the power of God;Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
Likewise, we as Christians have to be mindful that ignorance to the Word, the Way and the Why is rampant, we are to live by example, be ready to exhort and witness but to do so with caring and kindness. It isn't about being right, correct or perfect; it's about getting that person to pay heed when you say ..."Yo, WATCH OUT...a train is coming and in you are directly in its path!"...that train is called the World and it has many stops;...LUST, PRIDE, ARROGANCE, GREED, DISOBEDIENCE, WILLFULNESS, CONCEIT...sadly, the list just goes on and on. Sometimes that train ends up taking a life while the person is in Full Sin Swing, then what?...We must with pity, prayer, perseverance and patience do what we can to avoid these casualties!
To sum it up nicely...An ongoing Sin is the only thing in a persons life that comes between them and total repentance; restoration with God is afforded through Christ in accepting Him and following, therefore...as long as Satan can convince you to continue living in your sin and not turning toward the Lord, there is little chance you'll ever get off that train to find out where you got off track!
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him
John 14:23 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John 14:6 "I am the Way"
Tit. 2:14“Who [Christ] gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works”
Matthew 20:28-3028 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Acts 1:8 "You shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
John 14:6 "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me"
Lord God Almighty, I pray that I may always be willing to do what I can for others, no matter How great or How insignificant; that you will continually use me to touch the lives of others. I pray that you give me the correct words when needed, the proper attitude and the effectual anointing necessary to carry out this work. Lord, I also pray for every soul that I have ever encountered; for the ones from the past whom perhaps I never shared my faith, for the ones more recent whom I did but perhaps they felt Life with You to be too constrictive and I pray for all those whom I know you will send my way. Supply me with all that is needed to accomplish Your will and touch each of them in the core of their being so that they will experience You and come to Love You as they ought. I ask this in the name of Yeshua Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ AMEN!
