A Loving Directional Warning: Nakedness
JESUS says we are bringing to Him the same attitudes, apparel, atmospheres and lusts with which we served His enemy Satan.
Our Lord Jesus has commanded me to warn fellow pastors about breaking His heart with our nakedness in worship assemblies and in our worship of Him.
Isaiah 66:1-4, 15-18
Verse 3: He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Verse 4: I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
There are many things the Lord has on his heart for this hour in the churches of America, but Jesus is FOCUSED TODAY, on ridding Himself of suffering this particular hurt — our whoredom of “nakedness” — complete departure from the glory and reverence upon Christians that He calls “modesty”.
We are seduced into slumber by not realizing that many of the other evils straining our nation came from when we began to accept indecency into our homes, church gatherings and church activities. When we are no longer a candlestick, the people in society are left in darkness and under the power of the Prince of darkness.
Notice that to every pastor except one in the Revelation our Lord gave to John for us, our Lord says (in simple terms) “I know you are doing these things well that please me, but I have something against you concerning this other thing … and if you don’t repent of leading my people into this other thing, I am going to do this ______ (fill in the blank) to you”. Revelation Chapters 1-3
Therefore, the Lord keeps loving us today by alerting us in advance that He IS judging pastors in this next move by Holy Spirit. The new move JESUS will do by His Holy Spirit wil bring blessings, rewards, refreshings, and judgments en masse toward people throughout the earth, but beginning in the churches.
Pastors and teaching elder-(esses) must repent of leading Christians into things that JESUS finds abominable and blasphemous. It is understood that we can’t teach from Jesus what we don’t know from Him and we can’t lead where we don’t go in Him, but we are absolutely accountable to the Gospel already delivered in the New Testament.
Pastors are the source of what Christians are doing against God IF we are not living, teaching, and administering discipline to avoid God being mistreated. Discipline is the only thing that can make a “disciple”. Discipline is implemented by you reproving and rebuking behaviors publically done by anyone calling themselves Christians but are not under your direct pastoral authority. YOU ARE A PREACHER! Everyone is in that context “under your authority by the duty you have to God, Himself” as STEWARDS OF HIS GOSPEL. You are forbidden, by God, to allow “Christians” to sin directly in front of you just because they are not members in “your” church. You lead them into sin by standing by and saying or doing nothing — and we shall receive the greater danmation for that (James Chapter3:1-).
Don’t think that God will omit judging us when He has judged every leader since the Garden of Eden. We must repent of claiming that our worship times are of God with whoredom and nakedness brought, boldly, before Him during church assembly … as if he should accept our worship. If pastors are doing it in the worship and their children do it in daily life via school, sport and recreation, it is no surprise that people throughout the state and the country have adopted whoredom and nakedness as right and their preferred way of living.
We must repent of claiming we are preachers sent by God, when we do not alert Christians who are sinning in public about their sins and about Christ’s loving call to repent so he or she can avoid the judgment pending upon them. You can and must do so with meekness (no strife, arguing — 2 Timothy 2:24) — but with firm and gentle sincerity when you know a brother or sister to be in harm’s way.
There are many ways to help righteousness prevail in the earth. You can speak up to a brother or sister. You can kindly ask them not to do that at your home. You can gently and firmly “tell” them, I’m sorry but we don’t do that here (God holds you responsible for what you allow in the home He gave you — and His Holy Spirit will stay or go from your home, accordingly). You can kindly ask them to change into something and come visit later or another day, please. You can leave immediately with graciousness from their home if you stumble into such a situation. God will always give you some kind of way if you want to be loyal to Him. Yes, I have done all of the above.
MYTHS OF A BELIEVER
Our Past Is Behind Us … Only If We Leave It Behind
When we were under Satan’s power and in lust for his stuff, we did to God “abominable” things, we thought abominable things, we said in God’s earshot abominable things. Jesus feels like this:
27They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32Remember Lot’s wife. 33Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
NAKEDNESS is increasing in the sinner community around us because nakedness is being accepted by pastors within churches! As goes the church, so goes the world because the church is God’s PILLAR AND GROUND OF JESUS’ TRUTH (He is the way, the truth, and the life that we are to live).
Women and men are coming into his Holy assemblies showing their thighs, mens’ privacy, womens’ privacy, mens’ chests, womens’ bosoms, youth and children being taught the same — taught by their fathers’ and mothers’ examples. It all begins with us — Pastors.
Male and female preachers, praise team & “worship” leaders, youth “ministers”, etc. and spouses are up before the people as leaders and examples while teaching, singing, preaching and wearing nakedness-revealing clothing, tights and other form-fitting clothing, etc.
Jesus wants us to know this is a shameful thing. He was ashamed at the cross when his nakedness was revealed. It has always been a shameful thing EVER SINCE THE GARDEN OF EDEN and men, especially women, have always been shamefaced about it from Genesis to Revelation. NOW, “CHRISTIAN” SCHOOLS HAVE OUR GIRLS AND BOYS DOING SPORTS WEARING “UNDERWEAR” AND FOOLS CALL IT A SPORTS UNIFORM.
There was a time when godly fathers and mothers immediately felt the Holy Spirit when their daughter or son came out in nakedness-revealing clothing — “you’re not living in my house wearing that”! Now, the devil has seduced you into feeling no wrong and no shame. He has your fleshly mind “puffed up” with reasoning that it’s just their uniform and is necessary for them to perform their best competitive edge with no weights. What!
Are we in spiritual insanity? Shall you lose your soul or your sons’ and daughters’ souls forever damned over a sport from the sinner world we all live in??? “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world”! (1 John 2:15)
Satan always works against us by that method — slow cooking until you feel nothing, then become dead to the Spirit of God AND FEEL NO WRONG — BECAUSE YOU CANNOT FEEL THE HOLY SPIRIT INSIDE YOU WORKING ANYMORE. Paul said it means that you do not have the Spirit of God (after a few corrections rebuffed by you, you are no longer saved — no longer a Christian). John said that if you deliberately keep doing a sin, it’s because you are of the devil like Cain was of that wicked one — you are no longer a Christian. You are not saved.
If you love Jesus, your heart should feel something reading this message. You should feel something from the Holy Spirit inside you, from Jesus’ Spirit upon His words inside you — unless YOU NO LONGER HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST — AS PAUL and JOHN SAID of those who cannot discern the teachings and example of the Christ. You are of that spirit of antichrist who cannot feel wrong before God in your inner-self when the gentle loving correction of Christ is brought to you, repeatedly. Worse, you prove the spirit of antichrist is the one directing you if you are angry about this message because it fits YOU:
Of course, you who worship in the damnable heresy that once you are saved you are always saved, do not fear that swift destruction will come upon you as warned from our Lord Jesus (by authority of His apostle Peter).
IF we love the Bible Lord Jesus Christ, we ought to feel no less ashamed, along with our Lord, about nakedness since we represent His kingdoom ways to all mankind — not our own wants. The beautiful holiness attitude about the importance of our vessel, which carries the Holy Spirit of the only Living God, must not be taken lightly. He is our “Holy One” and nothing of Satan must be allowed to taint our body’s glory as created by Jesus and for Jesus. This is merely our reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)
It is convicting to observe that a poor Satan-controlled man, possessed with one thousand demons, was living in filth and all kinds of uncleanness, in the graveyard, running around cutting on himself and UNCLOTHED; but when Jesus cast the devils out of him, he was found noticeably changed. The Testimony of Jesus and the Apostles in the New Testament give us eyewitness that what made the whole sinner city notice and know the power of God had come on this man was first what they SAW, “he was CLOTHED and in his right mind” (Mark 5:15).
What demons are entering or influencing our flesh and our pastoral work by our own consent with Satan?
What demons are entering God’s people through us!
How deeply Satan has fuzzied the line between his own worship and Jesus Christ’s, between darkness and light, between unholy and holy, ungodly and godly. Do we know a difference anymore?
Do we live a difference anymore?
Do we preach a difference anymore?
We cannot preach what we don’t live. We cannot live what we don’t believe.
There is an evil heart of unbelief concerning Christ’s holy ways. (Hebrews Chapter 3)
An evil heart of unbelief in God’s ways is evident in pastors throughout the country or the country and Boise could not have so drastically changed from reverencing our influence.
This blessed man pleaded with Jesus to STAY WITH HIM wherever Jesus would ever be going. That man wanted to stay with the greater power that freed him from such terrible, invisible, supernatural powers of evil and destruction.
This blessed man, now delivered from the power of Satan, proved to have been changed and in a new “Holy Spirit” mind by the brand new condition of being clothed.
He was “known for being naked”, which was strange for normal people to do. The blatant, visible proof of his miracle change by Almighty God was what everyone in the city knew him for — naked and cutting himself, dwelling in the tombs. He was born again, a new man who did not do what he was known for anymore. He put on clothes to cover the shame of his nakedness being visible to others (besides his wife if he had one).
That is still God’s miracle display of His supreme power over your flesh — you don’t go places of evil you used to go, do evil you used to do, talk evil you used to talk, continue companionship in evil with those you had as friends, dress evil as you used to dress! You are “holy”.
Should we, who claim to be born again by the “holy” Spirit of God (Christians) not be as committed as this man to show Jesust AND the people around us that we have no hesitation to forsake the ways we once lived boldly and were known for?!
Let us show the same kind of bold thankfulness that makes us put on clothes to cover the shame of our nakedness being visible to others!
Let us sanctify ourselves for our GOD –not caring that people call us “holier than thou”, “judgmental” or “legalistic”. Such names are a badge of honor for JESUS, our Savior, from the life of sinner in this world which we lived before surrendering to Jesus. We are not part of Satan’s culture anymore — their disrepectful to God ways, although we live in the midst of them.
