God Is Not Mocked!

I found an interesting warning message on Bible Gateway this morning, and it was labeled “God is not mocked”.   Many warning messages are going out across the globe and we that are awake, know time is running out.   Anyone that turns away from the Lord now, can expect the same from him when he returns.

Galatians 6 

Make no mistake, God is not mocked. A person will harvest what they plant. Those who plant only for their own benefit will harvest devastation from their selfishness, but those who plant for the benefit of the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit.

We have choices to make, but only for a short time.  Very soon, it will be harvest time. Only those that have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior and truly repented from their sins, can expect protection and eternal life with him.

John 3

16 God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. 17 God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him isn’t judged; whoever doesn’t believe in him is already judged, because they don’t believe in the name of God’s only Son.

Others are still going about their normal routines of selfishness.  Many are more concerned about their financial assets, where they live, what kind of vehicle they drive, how many college degrees they have accumulated, how many houses they own, how many boats they have in storage, and the list goes on.

Matthew 6:19-21

“Stop collecting treasures for your own benefit on earth, where moth and rust eat them and where thieves break in and steal them. Instead, collect treasures for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust don’t eat them and where thieves don’t break in and steal them. Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

You can’t fill your lamps with oil by way of selfishness.  When was the last time you talked with the Lord?  Did you fit him into your busy schedule?   Do you prefer parties with the “in crowds” vs spending time sharing knowledge with God’s children?  Are you demanding attention by those you believe are beneath you in status?  When’s the last time you thanked someone that helped you?  When you go out in public do you draw attention to yourself by telling people things like:  who you know, what precious junk you have stored up?

Matthew 25 

Parable of the ten young bridesmaids (virgins)
25 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten young bridesmaids who took their lamps and went out to meet the groom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and the other five were foolish. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but didn’t bring oil for them. 4 But the wise ones took their lamps and also brought containers of oil.

5 “When the groom was late in coming, they all became drowsy and went to sleep. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Look, the groom! Come out to meet him.’

7 “Then all those bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. 8 But the foolish bridesmaids said to the wise ones, ‘Give us some of your oil, because our lamps have gone out.’

9 “But the wise bridesmaids replied, ‘No, because if we share with you, there won’t be enough for our lamps and yours. We have a better idea. You go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 But while they were gone to buy oil, the groom came. Those who were ready went with him into the wedding. Then the door was shut.

11 “Later the other bridesmaids came and said, ‘Lord, lord, open the door for us.’

12 “But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’

13 “Therefore, keep alert, because you don’t know the day or the hour.

We need to spend time with the Lord daily in prayer, reading the word, and obeying whatever tasks he has given us to do.  We must keep all unsaved people in constant prayer, along with our enemies and the “professing Christians”.  We also need to remember those that have wronged us in the past, by keeping them in prayer.

1 Peter 1:2

God the Father chose you because of what he knew beforehand. He chose you through the Holy Spirit’s work of making you holy and because of the faithful obedience and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. May God’s grace and peace be multiplied to you.

Much prayer is needed for those preaching prosperity and man’s doctrine.  Those preaching false gospel will be heading into the lake of fire, unless they repent.  Just because someone “commands” a large audience, doesn’t make them right in the eyes of the Lord.   We need to be cautious about the fake “healers” — those that put on a show of healing someone that never had a health problem to begin with.  Beware of those who twist the Gospel in order to keep the cash flowing in. Feel good messages won’t bring anyone to salvation.  It’s easy to recognize the “Gospel Twisters” look for the following:

  • Is their church so large, it needs huge projection televisions so you can see their “fake” tears flowing on stage? wealthy_church
  • Do they wear expensive clothing, own several houses/mansions, have their own drivers and private jets, do you see armed security service people? prosperitygospel
  • Do they have a slogan that doesn’t match scripture like “I want it, so I claim it?” 
  • Do they have an ATM machine in the Lobby?   christian_entertainment_Church
  • Do they spend a lot of time trying to convince their followers that wealth building is what the Lord wants for everyone?   cash_flow_is_king
  • Does the preacher spend a lot of time talking about “their church” and how they need to expand it’s precious beauty for the masses?  must_have_The_Precious
  • Does the church look more like a Hollywood movie set or concert hall?   mega_churchwealthy_catholic

  1. EXCELLENT Post and very true. I’m sensing there is coming soon an “and suddenly” situation that will shake most people up. . . If they have NOT been truly serving and following Jesus. Whatever this is that is looming, will impact us all, but when we are CLINGING TO JESUS . . We’ll still have peace in the midst of the coming storm.

    The judgement will be coming in waves. Just when one wave hits. . . There will be another one right behind it. May all who claim to be a Christian, truly have a clean walk with the LORD, for the day is coming when many will be heading into eternity . . . Ready or not.

    1. SO, SO true Linda! Thank you for your words as well as your powerful and anointed ministry. It’s really spoken to me recently. I was just reading another article describing “shifting and suddenlies” in the very near future. May we all be abiding in HIM. God bless you!

  2. After the strange event yesterday, I did a search on Bible Gateway for “Protection” and found Psalm 91. It’s one that most of us know, but I’ll put it here for reference:

    Psalm 91 (Common English Bible Version)

    Living in the Most High’s shelter,
    camping in the Almighty’s[a] shade,
    2 I say to the Lord, “You are my refuge, my stronghold!
    You are my God—the one I trust!”
    3 God will save you from the hunter’s trap
    and from deadly sickness.
    4 God will protect you with his pinions;
    you’ll find refuge under his wings.
    His faithfulness is a protective shield.
    5 Don’t be afraid of terrors at night,
    arrows that fly in daylight,
    6 or sickness that prowls in the dark,
    destruction that ravages at noontime.
    7 Even if one thousand people fall dead next to you,
    ten thousand right beside you—
    it won’t happen to you.
    8 Just look with your eyes,
    and you will see the wicked punished.
    9 Because you’ve made the Lord my refuge,
    the Most High, your place of residence—
    10 no evil will happen to you;
    no disease will come close to your tent.
    11 Because he will order his messengers to help you,
    to protect you wherever you go.
    12 They will carry you with their own hands
    so you don’t bruise your foot on a stone.
    13 You’ll march on top of lions and vipers;
    you’ll trample young lions and serpents underfoot.
    14 God says,[b] “Because you are devoted to me,
    I’ll rescue you.
    I’ll protect you because you know my name.
    15 Whenever you cry out to me, I’ll answer.
    I’ll be with you in troubling times.
    I’ll save you and glorify you.
    16 I’ll fill you full with old age.
    I’ll show you my salvation.”

  4. One thing that saddens me is that blogs like this dont get the attention they deserve.
    Only the few get it novadays and can see the handprint of the Lord in their
    daily life in the news.

    Those megachurches will spiritually kill millions like you showed on the sign with dont take bibles with you.

    The bible is the word of life, leave it at your own peril.

  5. JC much thanks brother for this perfect timing post. In some ways it suddenly feels like we are all going to be leaving blog camp soon and head out in separate directions with our maps from the Lord. God bless jc He is with us brother.

    1. Michael, I believe in what you state. I think we will all be given different directions very soon. Some of us may also be called to physically move, even when we thought where we currently live is in a place of protection. It will all be with the Lord’s perfect timing.

  6. I don’t mean to exclude anything from anyone here or on anyone else’s blog. I have to take the lead from the Holy Spirit before I release any of the details on the event I mentioned. I am in the process of posting bible-study scripture that is leading up to the release of the details. Part of the study will focus on the book of Enoch.

  7. Greetings of peace James in the name of Jesus,
    I awaken to a new day to seek the Lord while He may be found, in my freedom in Him, there are
    no bounds! The inner urgencies remain with me, here on the east coast, yet in unity with brothers and sisters, such as here on your post, there are so many confirmations, I am in the right place, as I seek His face. I have been going through the refiners fire, my souls desire, to live for Christ and be His vessel for the lost while there is still time, to reveal there is only one who is divine, May He shine in me through my whole being, the battle is getting harder in my singleness, yet through blogs like your James, Bette and Linda, I know I am not alone. The Lord has called me to be salt and light! Pray I step into the position He has for me and to continue to be equipped in every way! I look forward to your bible studies! May the blood of Jesus cover us!

    In the presence of Yeshua, Maria
