TODAY’S NUGGETS BEARING FALSE WITNESS

Exodus 20:16You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor

http://www.biblestudytools.com/nas/exodus/20-16.html

Matthew Henry Commentary:

Verses 12-17 The laws of the SECOND table, that is, the last six of the ten commandments, state our duty to ourselves and to one another, and explain the great commandment, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ( Luke 10:27 ) . Godliness and honesty must go together.

The fifth commandment concerns the duties we owe to our relations. Honour thy father and thy mother, includes esteem of them, shown in our conduct; obedience to their lawful commands; come when they call you, go where they send you, do what they bid you, refrain from what they forbid you; and this, as children, cheerfully, and from a principle of love. Also submission to their counsels and corrections. Endeavouring, in every thing, to comfort parents, and to make their old age easy; maintaining them if they need support, which our Saviour makes to be particularly intended in this commandment, ( Matthew 15:4-6 ) . Careful observers have noted a peculiar blessing in temporal things on obedient, and the reverse on disobedient children.

The sixth commandment requires that we regard the life and the safety of others as we do our own. Magistrates and their officers, and witnesses testifying the truth, do not break this command. Self-defence is lawful; but much which is not deemed murder by the laws of man, is such before God. Furious passions, stirred up by anger or by drunkenness, are no excuse: more guilty is murder in duels, which is a horrible effect of a haughty, revengeful spirit. All fighting, whether for wages, for renown, or out of anger and malice, breaks this command, and the bloodshed therein is murder.

To tempt men to vice and crimes which shorten life, may be included. Misconduct, such as may break the heart, or shorten the lives of parents, wives, or other relatives, is a breach of this command. This command forbids all envy, malice, hatred, or anger, all provoking or insulting language. The destruction of our own lives is here forbidden.

This commandment requires a spirit of kindness, longsuffering, and forgiveness. The seventh commandment concerns chastity. We should be as much afraid of that which defiles the body, as of that which destroys it. Whatever tends to pollute the imagination, or to raise the passions, falls under this law, as impure pictures, books, conversation, or any other like matters.

The eighth commandment is the law of love as it respects the property of others. The portion of worldly things allotted us, as far as it is obtained in an honest way, is the bread which God hath given us; for that we ought to be thankful, to be contented with it, and, in the use of lawful means, to trust Providence for the future.

Imposing upon the ignorance, easiness, or necessity of others, and many other things, break God’s law, though scarcely blamed in society. Plunderers of kingdoms though above human justice, will be included in this sentence.

Defrauding the public, contracting debts without prospect of paying them, or evading payment of just debts, extravagance, all living upon charity when not needful, all squeezing the poor in their wages; these, and such things, break this command; which requires industry, frugality, and content, and to do to others, about worldly property, as we would they should do to us.

The ninth commandment concerns our own and our neighbour’s good name. This forbids speaking falsely on any matter, lying, equivocating, and any way devising or designing to deceive our neighbour. Speaking unjustly against our neighbour, to hurt his reputation. Bearing false witness against him, or in common conversation slandering, backbiting, and tale-bearing; making what is done amiss, worse than it is, and in any way endeavouring to raise our reputation upon the ruin of our neighbour’s. How much this command is every day broken among persons of all ranks!

The tenth commandment strikes at the root; Thou shalt not covet. The others forbid all desire of doing what will be an injury to our neighbour; this forbids all wrong desire of having what will gratify ourselves.

EXCUSES FOR SIN OR OBEDIENCE BY DEREK PRINCE

http://www.dpmuk.org/Forums/Messages.aspx?ThreadID=236954

End-Time Deception True or False?? MUST READ!!!!
The Biggest mistake you could make is thinking you are bound for heaven when you die, while in reality the wrath of God is abiding on your head. Most people are under the assumption that God will welcome them into His Kingdom at death because they have acknowledged His Name. But they are sadly mistaken.

The worst possible situation you could be in is self-deception. You are hearing God’s Word but NEVER putting it into practice! (Lk8:21) Thus faith, in your mind is something vague and mysterious, not based on the Solid foundation of ‘Keeping His Commandments!’ (Jh14:15) You are under the false impression that God has forgiven your sins while you CONTINUE to enjoy them! (Rom6:1, 15)

Grace therefore gives you permission to keep on sinning, although you may not be a complete reprobate, inwardly your conscience is defiled by the corruption of lust. Putting to death the misdeeds of the body is something FAR from your mind. Yet this alone is the fundamental principle of the Gospel message.

Regardless what is preached as the ‘truth’ at your local church, THIS is what the Bible has declared! (2Tim2:19, 1Jh2:16-17) Yours is to believe it or reject it, but know that the consequences are eternal.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the Pure of heart for they shall see God!” Matt5:8
(You can be certain that NO ONE else will. ONLY those Purified from the inward & outward defilement of sin by His Grace will inherit the Kingdom.)

“The PURPOSE of the Commandment is love from a Pure heart, from a good conscience, from sincere faith!” 1Tim1:5

Grace is NOT an excuse to keep on sinning, or a cloak for ‘inward’ defilement. The entire Purpose of salvation by Grace is to REMOVE the inward corruption of selfishness from your heart! But unless you put to death the deeds of body by the Spirit, you will die & go to hell. (Rom8:13, Gal5:24)

Listen to the Prophet: “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean. I will cleanse you from ALL your filthiness & double-minded ways! I will give you a NEW heart and put My Spirit within you. I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put MY Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My Statues & KEEP My Commandments!” Ezk36:25-28

This happens by GRACE through FAITH, BUT it MUST occur in reality within your heart or heaven will NEVER be your final destination.

If you continue in a life of selfish ambition, seeking after the things of the world and taking pleasure in your sins, your faith will be in Vain. You may indeed ‘believe’, but the ‘devils believe!’ (Js2:19) NO ONE becomes a new creation in Christ without FIRST dying to Self.

“Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone, but if it dies it produces much grain. He who loves his life will LOSE it and he who hates his life in this world will find it for eternal life.” Jh12:24-25

COUNT on it. Jesus has declared the truth of entering into life eternal. IF you continue to live according to the flesh you will DIE & go to hell. BUT if by the Spirit of God you put to death the deeds of the body you will live, eternally! Rom8:13

This is the grand difference between you and the devils. YOU have a choice and the means by which to lay aside the carnal mind that will destroy you! (Rom8:6) By ‘Crucifying’ the flesh with it’s passions & desires and walking in Newness of life. But this requires effort.

The BIGGEST mistake you could make at this point is being assured by the false teachers that you are a child of God while you remain in bondage to the inward corruption of sin. NOTHING could be further from the truth. Grace WILL NOT accommodate your sin or make up for your lack of Obedience to the faith. You may cling to a false notion that your ‘faith’ is genuine, but if you CONTINUE in your deception know that your conscience will soon be hardened by sin. (Heb3:12-14)

It doesn’t matter what your pastor has to say. Examine the Scriptures! “Come let us REASON together!” says the Lord. If your soul is Void of inward Purity and a Steadfast enduring faith, you will NOT go to heaven when you die. (Rom2:7-8 is how you inherit life eternal)

The works of the flesh are obvious, Gal5:19-21, they include: adultery, fornication (real or imagined) uncleanness, indecent behavior, idolatry, lack of Self-Control! Hatred, selfish ambition, envy, murder, drunkenness and the like. READ what the passage has to say about these things: “THOSE who DO such things WILL NOT inherit the Kingdom of God!”

EVIDENCE of the New Birth is FRUIT that Remains! (Jh15:16) The OPPOSITE of Selfishness. Gal5:22-23: “Love, Joy, Peace, Endurance, Self-Control, Kindness, Meekness & Faithfulness!”

Are these evident in you? Are you DAILY denying yourself, walking in love toward your fellow man, meek, kind, your inner passions under Control of the Spirit? THIS is the HOPE of eternal life! (Rom8:16)

If Newness of Life is not actively at work in your heart transforming you from glory to glory and putting to death the inward corruption of your flesh, you are NOT a child of God. (Rom8:9) You Cannot blend Darkness with Light, Purity with impurity. If Christ is in you, HIS IMAGE and likeness are Evident in your behavior. It doesn’t matter what your preacher says, ‘Carnal Christianity’ is a MYTH! Christ is NOT a minister of sin. When you Die to Self, in HIM, you have your FRUIT to holiness and the END thereof is EVERLASTING LIFE! Rom6:22

Stop believing a lie and enter into the True Vine.

Everybody’s Saved!

http://www.standingthegap.org/THINK.htm

Jesus said, “ONLY A FEW would find eternal life!” Matt7:13-14 But you don’t believe that, do you? You claim salvation in His name while STILL in bondage to your sins! You’ve NEVER Obeyed God’s Word, Denied yourself or taken up your cross to Follow Him.

The reason is that ANYONE can ‘accept’ Jesus as their personal savior, as you have done, for forgiveness of sins. BUT FEW will ever OBEY HIM!

And since it by OBEDIENCE the heart is made PURE before God, (1Pet1:22) you are still in your sins, lost and deceived! ‘Hearing’ the Word, but NEVER DOING it. With a Form of godliness without Power to deny sin. Js1:22, Titus1:16

The PURPOSE of the Commandant is Love from a PURE heart from a good conscience & from sincere faith! 1Tim1:5 If your heart is not PURE you are NOT in Christ. Knowing about Jesus is not enough. The devils ‘know’ and tremble! Js2:19

The ONLY way you can KNOW for sure you are saved in Christ is by OBEDIENCE to the Faith. Jesus said, “IF you love ME, KEEP My commandants!” John14:15
It is the Heart that MUST be changed! “Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries & immoral behavior!” Matt15:19

“From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks!” Matt13:34 People draw near to God with their mouths, BUT their hearts are FAR away! Mark7:9

You cannot live a Worldly, Carnal lifestyle and go to heaven in the end.

Church attendance to sooth a guilty conscience is another vain attempt at true salvation. MOST people are LOST even though they ‘BELIEVE’ on Jesus!

WHY?

Because they have NEVER Obeyed Him! You can convince anyone their sins are forgiven in Christ by repeating a prayer, BUT tell them they MUST surrender everything they own & everything they are to Jesus and continue to DO SO to remain saved, and you will have FEW real converts to Christ. (Matt10:24-28)

Do you profess to be a Christian, attend church & do nice things for others but STILL cling to a Worldly lifestyle? SELF is still at the center of your being. You’re convinced that being a Christian is a profession of faith NOT a transformation of conduct.

When’s the last time you confronted anyone with the truth of God? Not the watered-down, accept Jesus, come to church message, but really got down to the nitty gritty of repentance, faith, obedience, holiness? DO YOU EVEN CARE? It’s rare to find anyone whose willing to OBEY God at all cost. Or even open enough to discuss it without making excuses for sin.

Most people THINK they are saved and get very perturbed when someone asks them to produce EVIDENCE of their salvation. YET this is what scripture demands, 2Cor13:5

“Examine yourself as to whether you are in the faith, PROVE yourself! Do you not know that Jesus is in you, unless you fail to pass the test!”

When’s the last time you heard a preacher tell you to examine your faith to see if it’s real? Probably NEVER, because if he did it on a regular bases you wouldn’t attend his church! You want someone to give you assurance that Christ died for your sins and you’re saved no matter what you do! Isn’t that the essence of the message they preach? By grace you are saved through faith, not of yourself, it a gift of God!

But what is FAITH? You have no idea! You hope it’s something vague, mysterious, a supernatural force not of yourself that God imparts to those who will acknowledge His Son.

But Real Faith is simply OBEDIENCE to God. Nothing more & nothing less. “By faith people obeyed God when He called them!” Heb11:8, 11,23

“God rewards those who diligently seek Him by faith!” Heb11:6

By FAITH the heart is made PURE. By Faith you can have Victory over sin. By faith you can walk in Newness of Life! ALL dependant on your willingness to OBEY God, take that step forward and endure to the end. 1Pet1:22, 1John5:4, Rom6:4,17, Matt10:22

Living for yourself, in worldly pursuits, lusting for the things of this life is NOT Faith in God. If you have Lust in your heart you have NOT ‘believed’ on Jesus. Stop kidding yourself. Either Jesus came to deliver you from the corrupting influence of sin by the Power of His Grace, or the Bible is in error! Grace is NOT an accommodation to sin (Rom6:1,15)

The Bible defines Grace as God’s Power to deliver you FROM sin! Titus2:11

“For the Grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, training us to deny ungodliness & worldly lust and live soberly & righteously & godly in this present age!”

2Pet1:4 “We have been given exceeding great and precious promises that through these we may become partakers of the Divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust!”

Titus3:7 “Having been justified by His Grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (No guarantees here conditional on your obedience!)

Is that your HOPE? Living by His Power in this crooked, perverse generation as a shining light testifying of His Power to Break the bondage of sin & lust in your heart!

Or would you rather just go on trying to get by, thinking you are saved by faith while your heart is in love with the world and your flesh is bound by lust? Religious deception is common among professing Christians. You may be comfortable in your church, safe & secure under ‘grace’, but unless you Actively OBEY God NOW, your ‘faith’ is in vain! 1Cor15:2

“More blessed are those who hear the Word of God and KEEP IT!” Luke11:28  Article by Derek Prince

TODAY’S NUGGETS HE WHO LOVES HIS NEIGHBOR HAS FULFILLED THE LAW Rom 13:10

Be Subject to Government

1Every aperson is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authorityexcept bfrom God, and those which exist are established by God.2Therefore cwhoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who haveopposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.3For rulers are not a cause of fear for dgood behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fearof authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;4for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bearthe sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one whopractices evil.5Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also forconscience’ sake.6For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves tothis very thing.7Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whomfear; honor to whom honor.8Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves ehis neighbor hasfulfilled the law.9For this, “YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, YOU SHALL NOT MURDER, YOU SHALL NOT STEAL, YOU SHALL NOT COVET,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summedup in this saying, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”10Love fdoes no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.11Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for nowgsalvation is nearer to us than when we believed.12The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds ofdarkness and put on the armor of light.

 

1John1: But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

Matthew Henry Commentary

Romans 13

The duty of subjection to governors. (1-7) Exhortations to mutual love. (8-10) To temperance and sobriety. (11-14)

Verses 1-7 The grace of the gospel teaches us submission and quiet, where pride and the carnal mind only see causes for murmuring and discontent. Whatever the persons in authority over us themselves may be, yet the just power they have, must be submitted to and obeyed. In the general course of human affairs, rulers are not a terror to honest, quiet, and good subjects, but to evil-doers. Such is the power of sin and corruption, that many will be kept back from crimes only by the fear of punishment. Thou hast the benefit of the government, therefore do what thou canst to preserve it, and nothing to disturb it. This directs private persons to behave quietly and peaceably ( 1Timothy. 2:1 1 Timothy. 2:2 ) trick or fraud. All smuggling, dealing in contraband goods, withholding or evading duties, is rebellion against the express command of God. Thus honest neighbours are robbed, who will have to pay the more; and the crimes of smugglers, and others who join with them, are abetted. It is painful that some professors of the gospel should countenance such dishonest practices. The lesson here taught it becomes all Christians to learn and practise, that the godly in the land will always be found the quiet and the peaceable in the land, whatever others are.

Verses 8-10 Christians must avoid useless expense, and be careful not to contract any debts they have not the power to discharge. They are also to stand aloof from all venturesome speculations and rash engagements, and whatever may expose them to the danger of not rendering to all their due. Do not keep in any one’s debt. Give every one his own. Do not spend that on yourselves, which you owe to others. But many who are very sensible of the trouble, think little of the sin, of being in debt. Love to others includes all the duties of the second table. The last five of the ten commandments are all summed up in this royal law, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself; with the same sincerity that thou lovest thyself, though not in the same measure and degree. He that loves his neighbour as himself, will desire the welfare of his neighbour. On this is built that golden rule, of doing as we would be done by. Love is a living, active principle of obedience to the whole law. Let us not only avoid injuries to the persons, connexions, property, and characters of men; but do no kind or degree of evil to any man, and study to be useful in every station of life.

Verses 11-14 Four things are here taught, as a Christian’s directory for his day’s work. When to awake; Now; and to awake out of the sleep of carnal security, sloth, and negligence; out of the sleep of spiritual death, and out of the sleep of spiritual deadness. Considering the time; a busy time; a perilous time. Also the salvation nigh at hand. Let us mind our way, and mend our pace, we are nearer our journey’s end. Also to make ourselves ready. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; therefore it is time to dress ourselves. Observe what we must put off; clothes worn in the night. Cast off the sinful works of darkness. Observe what we must put on; how we should dress our souls. Put on the armour of light. A Christian must reckon himself undressed, if unarmed. The graces of the Spirit are this armour, to secure the soul from Satan’s temptations, and the assaults of this present evil world. Put on Christ; that includes all. Put on righteousness of Christ, for justification. Put on the Spirit and grace of Christ, for sanctification. The Lord Jesus Christ must be put on as Lord to rule you as Jesus to save you; and in both, as Christ anointed and appointed by the Father to this ruling, saving work. And how to walk. When we are up and ready, we are not to sit still, but to appear abroad; let us walk. Christianity teaches us how to walk so as to please God, who ever sees us. Walk honestly as in the day; avoiding the works of darkness. Where there are riot and drunkenness, there usually are chambering and wantonness, and strife and envy. Solomon puts these all together, (Proverbs 23:29-35 ) . See what provision to make. Our great care must be to provide for our souls: but must we take no care about our bodies? Yes; but two things are forbidden. Perplexing ourselves with anxious, encumbering care; and indulging ourselves in irregular desires. Natural wants are to be answered, but evil appetites must be checked and denied. To ask meat for our necessities, is our duty, we are taught to pray for daily bread; but to ask meat for our lusts, is provoking God, ( Psalms 78:18 ) .

The Secrete Weapon of Repentance

“Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent (change the inner man to meet God’s will) and do the works you did previously, when you first knew the Lord, or else I will visit you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you change your mind and repent.” (Revelation 2:5)

“So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return to God, that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord.” (Acts 3:19)
