God’s Promise: When A Man’s Ways are Pleasing to the Lord

sunrise-silhouette-ID-10038217-Chaiwat-FDP

“When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
Proverbs 16:7

Of all God’s many promises, the one in Proverbs 16:7 is one of the most satisfying. IF a man’s ways please God, even a man’s enemies will cease their strife and lay down their weapons.

For the true believer, whenever those who would wish him ill behave favorably toward him, he can be assured that his ways are pleasing to God. This is not only a blessing, it is a comfort to know.

It’s all a part of finding favor with the Lord.

Something for all to consider in the times in which we live.

Walk with God: Never Alone when You Walk with God

WHEN YOU WALK WITH THE LORD: You never walk alone.
WHEN YOU WALK WITH THE LORD: You may not walk with other men, but you will never walk alone.

THE TRUE CHRISTIAN ROAD IS A SOLITARY ONE

The road leading to eternal salvation is a narrow way but it is not a crowded one.

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. “
Matthew 7:14

Consequently, the road leading to destruction is broad and full of many bound for perdition.

“for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:”
Matthew 7:13

One situation the true believer has to get used to is walking alone. No matter how popular he was when he was lost and part of the world, once he is saved the true believer will not be a popular person. This is especially true in the apostate churches. As long as one is willing to swallow the lies, falsehoods and deceits spooned out by the wolves in the pulpit and their lackeys, one will be popular in the counterfeit churches.

However, as soon as one discovers the deceptions, one will increasingly walk alone and with little fellowship.

But, true believers were warned this would be so.  AND, while the godly who follow Christ Jesus may not walk with men, they DO walk with One who will never leave them.

NEVER ALONE: Though the Christian walk is lonely and it may seem like the believer is isolated, he is never alone.
NEVER ALONE: Though the Christian walk is lonely and it may seem like the believer is isolated, he is never alone.

In fact, both the Old and New Testaments contain God’s promises to never leave His people.

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Deuteronomy 31:6

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Hebrews 13:5

“And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.”
Deuteronomy 31:8

“and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.”
Matthew 28:20

Walking with God means walking in the Spirit. When the believer walks in the Spirit, then he does not walk with the world or go after the things of this world.

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
Galatians 5:16

God not only walks with the believer and upholds him, He provides peace, love and companionship during the walk.

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:7

Learning to walk with God instead of the world is part of any believer’s end times preparation.

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
Amos 3:3

So, the next time the believer sees the rest of the world living it up in their lost condition, remember:

Though you may walk alone among men, there is One who will always walk beside you.

Always.

The true believer NEVER walks alone.

And that’s true for all eternity.

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;  By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:1-4

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Modern Church Revival: Sideshows for Satan

WHAT CHURCHES CALL REVIVALS: Sideshows for Satan.
WHAT CHURCHES CALL REVIVALS: Sideshows for Satan.

“there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,”
2 Peter 2:1

MAN-CREATED “REVIVALS”

Modern-day “revivals” feature lots of singing, lots of emotion and very little–if any–salvation (as demonstrated by fruits of repentance).

“Revivals” in the apostate churches focus on emotions.

In the American colonies the First Great Awakening was a wave of religious enthusiasm among Protestants that swept the American colonies in the 1730s and 1740s, leaving a permanent impact on American religion. It resulted from powerful preaching that deeply affected listeners (already church members) with a deep sense of personal guilt and salvation by Christ. Pulling away from ritual and ceremony, the Great Awakening made religion intensely personal to the average person by creating a deep sense of spiritual guilt and redemption.
Christian Revival

The promoters of these apostate side shows are big on claims, small on results.

The motto of the modern revival

“Come expecting!”

is the opposite of 2 Corinthians 5:7

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”

Sight-walkers expect to have their flesh pleased and their ears tickled.  And the modern “revival” does all of that and more.

MODERN REVIVALS: THE DEVIL’S DISTRACTIONS

These made-for-apostates events which the churches call “revivals” are no such things. They exist for several reasons:

  • They create a payday for those involved.
  • They provide a false salvation “experience.”
  • They provide a platform for the many deceiving spirits who masquerade as the Holy Spirit.
  • They substitute man-created rituals ​(altar calls, pledge cards, sinner’s prayers) for the gospel.​ They may TALK a lot about preaching the gospel. But when it’s all said and done, it’s the man-created rituals which are promoted.
  • They contribute to the lost experiencing another gospel, another Jesus.​
  • They perpetuate much pagan ungodliness, calling it Christianity.
  • They further many deceptions necessary for the dragon to pull off his end times evil.

IF anyone does get saved at a modern church revival (and God can and does use evil men sometimes to accomplish his purposes), it’s in spite of the ungodly antics, not because of them.

Lest the reader think this assessment is too harsh, this writer is still waiting for a church revival where the gospel is preached and altar calls, sinner’s prayers, pledge cards and other non-Biblical props are not a part of the show.

When the true cost of the false “revivals” becomes known–and one day, it will be–the perpetrators of these carnival shows for Satan will be called to account before Almighty God.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;  By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
