Dogs and Wolves December 7, 2009

I just wanted to do a quick blog on something that I just happened to notice while reading the book of Matthew just now.  In Matthew 7:6, Jesus says, “Give not that which is holy to the dogs, neither cast you your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”  I believe this means not to bother trying to teach holiness or wisdom to those who don’t want it because they won’t appreciate it, and they will attack you because of it.  Later on, in verse 15, He says, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”  False prophets come to you appearing to be fellow sheep, having an outward  appearance of godliness, but are actually dangerous wolves, in reality.  What is a wolf?  A type of dog.  They’re dogs who trample holiness, and they hate sound biblical doctrine and principles, and they’ll seek to destroy, discredit, and persecute any who would challenge them using the truth of God’s Word (give that which is holy).  They don’t live or teach true holiness, therefore they don’t desire to hear it or be corrected, and they’ll have feelings of contempt towards you for bringing it to their attention.

I’m not claiming this to be Christ’s true and intended correlation between these thoughts in these two verses of Scripture, or even that they’re related at all…I just happened to see an interesting way that the two could possibly be connected.

Be Careful October 29, 2009

Theme courtesy of the children’s song “Be careful little eyes what you see”

Be careful little eyes what you see!
Cuz many shepherds hold Bibles while their hearts are on idols
They don’t like noisy sheep so they lull you to sleep
They keep your mind saturated with fables
If Christ walked into these dens He’d turn over the tables!
Oh, be careful little eyes what you see!
“Buy two prayers, get one free! For 10% extra, your miracle’s on me!”
Freely they have received, yet costly they sell
Marketing the Word of God, now churches are temples of retail
Be careful little ears what you hear!
Faith comes by hearing, and if you’re listening to twisted scripture
It’s no wonder you don’t get the picture
Charismatic, intelligent, well-spoken, well-dressed
Read the Bible on your own?! No way, pastor knows best!
Oh, be careful little ears what you hear!
When you do attempt study on your own time
You go back and read with his interpretation in your mind
Line upon lying line
Precept upon deceitful precept
Not understanding what’s in His Word in black and white
Because more trust is given to man than to the Most High
Be careful little hands what you do!
Because during your chase for mammon and things of this world
You missed what the Father had for you
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness
Goodness, faith, meekness, temperance
But you’d rather have what appeals to your senses
Oh, be careful little hands what you do!
You claim to love God, yet you hate your neighbor
When Christ plainly tells us that what you do to the least of His-
You’ve done to the Savior
Then you expect help for free
But being quick to charge for favors
Be careful little feet where you go!
Just because “church”, “Christ”, or “God” is in the title
Doesn’t mean they represent the God of the Bible
Many shall come in His name to deceive
But if you’re looking for “Hello, my name is Jesus”
Well, that’s just pure comedy
Oh, be careful little feet where you go!
Many who come in His name won’t claim to BE Christ
They’ll simply twist His words and His character
Until He slowly morphs from Jesus Christ into Jesus Nice
No more salvation, repentance, judgment, or sin
Because they don’t care about souls, they just don’t want to offend
Be careful little mouth what you say!
Many may think I’m off my rocker to speak this way
“Touch not My anointed” is often heard
But anointing only comes from the Father, not man’s titles or vain words
Few people quote “Beloved, believe not every spirit”
When proof of man’s error is set before you, you don’t want to hear it
Oh, be careful little mouth what you say!
In these last days strong delusions are being sent
To those who hide from truth, that is a form of judgment!
Conscience seared, Truth feared, and deception accepted
Christ cries out from His pages, but you choose to reject it
