Who is on the Lord's side?
By David J. Stewart
"Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him." — Exodus 32:26
We are living in woeful times of apostasy. How dare Americans boast of faith in God, when they're living in the cesspool of iniquity. We may trust in goods or greed; but certainly not in the God of the Bible. Woe unto America!
Moses had just received the Ten Commandments—the very work and writing of the Lord God (Exodus 32:16). This was from atop mount Sinai. Moses had no sooner received the Ten Commandments, when God told Moses that the Israelites had turned to idolatry in the camp below. God was angry with the people for their sin and stubbornness, and wanted to destroy them utterly... "And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation." —Exodus 32:9,10
Moses interceded through prayer on behalf of the people, from atop Mount Sinai, begging God to change His mind, and He did (Exodus 32:14). The Israelites were spared God's judgment. As Moses was coming down from the mountain, and drawing nigh unto to the camp, he was angered when he heard Rock 'N' Roll music, and saw the people dancing naked around a golden calf. Moses forced the people to choose whose side they were on... "Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me" (Exodus 32:26).
America Today is a Stiffnecked People
There is NO middle ground friend; either you are on the Lord's side, or the sinful world's side. You are either on the side of the Lord Jesus Christ, or the side of Satan. We read in Revelation 3:15-16, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." God prefers an outright heathen, than a compromiser who straddles the fence and can't make up his mind. That's exactly what God said... I would thou wert cold or hot.
So many compromisers come to mind. Take Willie Nelson for example, who sang Kneel At The Feet Of Jesus on his GOSPEL FAVORITES album; BUT then not too long ago embraced the Homosexual Agenda with his despicable song, Cowboys Are Secretly, Frequently Fond of each Other. It's sickening. The word "spue" in Revelation 3:16 in the Greek literally means "to vomit." God vomits up Willie Nelson. Don't get mad at me, God said it!
Let's see who else is on God's vomit list. How about Gospel singer Marsha Stevens, who is the founder of the ministry, Born Again Lesbian Music. Tragically, Bill Gaither openly supports their cause, i.e., homosexuality. It's this type of pseudo-Christianity that makes God sick! God says, "I need to go vomit." By the way, every born-again child of God should feel the same way about evil. We read in Psalm 97:10, "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil..." Homosexuality is a horrible sin, which brings the judgment of God upon a nation (Romans 1:24-32; 2nd Peter 2:6; Jude 1:7).
We read in Joshua 24:15, "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." I ask you friend, whom do you serve? There is NO middle ground. You are either on the Lord's side or not. You can't eat at the Devil's table and the Lord's at the same time... "Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils" (1st Corinthians 10:21). Many professed Christians today are embracing the sinful world, and still think they are on the Lord's side; but they are not. They are woefully deceived!
Beyonce Knowles claims to be a devout Christian; BUT she also claims that God has given her permission to dress sexy and strip on stage. God regurgitates her out of His mouth. Beyonce is a hypocrite, who needs to get right with God. How dare Miss Knowles shame the name of Christ, and attribute the sins of nudity, lust, and lasciviousness to His holy name!
Jesus clearly stated in Matthew 5:28... "That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." For any woman to dress immodestly in public is a sin, because she causes men to lust. 1st Timothy 2:9 instructs women to dress in modest clothing, and not to wear expensive jewelry...
"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array."
Take a look at the above right photo, at the earrings in Beyonce's ears. Whoa! They sure look costly to me. Beyonce, like so many other rebellious women today, disregard the Word of God and choose to live in sin, by living for themselves. 1st Corinthians 6:19 states, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" Did you read that? ... Ye are not your own. Every true Christian belongs to God, and we are expected to live for the Lord. Beyonce, like other feminist rebels today, insists that she has a right to live her life the way SHE CHOOSES; rather than the way God's Word tells her to. Woe unto Beyonce.
Who is on the Lord's side? It is tragic that so many professed Christians today are embracing the wickedness of the world. It is hard to image that any so-called church would embrace the pro-choice movement. Here's a pastor of 10,000 people every Sunday, Lon Solomon, who says that abortion and homosexuality are "minor concerns" in his church. How sad! This is apostasy! It is hard to imagine a professed church, whose membership is 18% atheist.
All across the world, professed Christians are embracing the wickedness of Harry Potter's witchcraft. ChristianityToday magazine sadly produced an article titled, Why We Like Harry Potter. To no surprise, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, announced in 2007 that one of the main characters in her children's series, Dumbledore, is a homosexual. The Bible calls homosexuality, Sodomy, named after the wicked city of Sodom in the Old Testament. God destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone because the sin was so bad. The Biblical word "sodomite" in the King James Bible implies JUDGMENT upon all homosexuals. This is why the New International Version (NIV) translators of the Bible completely removed the word "sodomite," because there were actually multiple homosexuals on the NIV translating committee. If you use the NIV bible, then you are embracing homosexuality.
Americans are a stiffnecked bunch, who spit in God's face by living in sin, and then have the audacity to profess IN GOD WE TRUST. Americans murder their own children by abortion; yet shamelessly boast of being a nation that VALUES LIFE. The alcohol industry deceitfully propagates the slogan DRINK RESPONSIBLY, while irresponsible legislatures allow drunk drivers onto the streets of America with a Blood-Alcohol-Content (BAC) of up to .079, which is insane.
Enemies of God
"For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ" (Philippians 3:18).
Again we read in Revelation 3:15-16... "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." God prefers an outright heathen, than a compromiser who straddles the fence and can't make up his mind. Where do you stand? God said... I would thou wert cold or hot. There is NO middle ground; either you are on the Lord's side or not. James 4:4 states, "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." You CANNOT be friends with the sinful world and God at the same time. This is exactly what the Bible teaches. The Bible states that to be a friend of the world is to be God's enemy. Beyonce Knowles is God's enemy. Toby Keith is God's enemy. Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire are God's enemies. Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson are God's enemies.
What about Contemporary Christian Music (CCM)? There is no such animal as "Christian Rock." All Rock 'N' Roll music is straight from the pits of Hell. Rock 'N' Roll is the enemy of God, and promotes Communism through its immoral and godless philosophies. It was Communist leader, Vladimir Lenin, who said... "The best revolutionary is a youth devoid of morals." Rock 'N' Roll has always been associated with rebellion, immoral sex and substance abuse. Today, America has some of the most immoral youth in the world, and it can only get much worse.
There is not a more hypocritical time of the year in the United States than at Christmas time. Degenerate entertainers who sing the Devil's music and promote sinful living all-year-long, hypocritically sing about the Lord Jesus at Christmas time. It makes God vomit, just as Revelation 3:16 says.
Pictured to the right is the cover of the HOLY COW CHRISTMAS CD . I couldn't help but notice the striking resemblance to the Satanic goats head pictured to the left. The producers of the album blaspheme the Lord Jesus Christ by referring to a "Holy Cow Christmas." In case you don't know, the cow is literally worshipped as a god throughout India.
On the album, Mark Chesnutt hypocritically sings, "WHAT CHILD IS THIS?". God is not a cow, and there's no such thing as a "holy cow." It's not cute or funny. Jesus shed His precious blood for us, so we could be freed from our sins and the damnation of the Lake of Fire. Yet, men blaspheme God and desecrate the holy things of God. This is evil. No one should ever joke, take lightly, or make fun of God or the Bible. To do so is sin.
There is pattern of promoting Satan within the music industry. Rock is the Devil's music, and today's country music is no better. These are all the enemies of God. Lest you think I'm being paranoid by comparing the Holy Cow Christmas CD cover to a Satanic goat's head, please read: The Rolling Stones, Imagine, and Harvey Danger, to name a few. The goat (or ram) head is revered by witches and Satanists because it symbolizes Satan. Coincidence? I think not. Regardless, the very name of the album is blaspheme against God. Every Christian should hate the term "holy cow" and refrain from using it.
The enemies of God have no regard for anything that is holy. They call "holy" things that aren't holy (such as a cow); BUT, then they refuse to call "holy" what God calls holy (such as marriage). Marriage is holy in the eyes of God; BUT men turn it into lasciviousness. I recently saw an advertisement on TV for a product that colors a man's hair from gray to black or brown. The advertiser then said, "Stay in the game." Stay in the game? By coloring my hair? What game? Do you mean the whoremongering game? The fornication game? Yes, that is what they mean. Sadly, relationships are nothing more than a "GAME" to many people today, because they refuse to live within the sacred vows of a marriage.
It is tragic that people are paying thousands of dollars to change their appearance, hoping to impress someone by their mere outward looks. In another TV advertisement, a woman was asked what she's looking for in a man. Her first answer was... "He's got to be hot." No wonder the divorce rate has skyrocketed. Sadly, most people today are getting married for the wrong reasons. You won't think your new husband is so "hot" when he's cheating on you. You'd better marry a man of God. 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 forbids a Christian from marrying an unsaved person or a worldly believer.
Who is On the Lord's Side?
Moses forced the Israelites to make a decision... who is on the Lord's side? Those who chose not to side with the Lord were destroyed that day. Likewise, a day of reckoning is coming for America. Are you on the Lord's side? If you don't see anything wrong with Harry Potter's witchcraft, then you are on the Devil's side. If you think homosexuality should be a legal right, and that it's ok to teach children that homosexual is acceptable, then you are on the Devil's side. If you think abortion is a mother's right, or that abortion is necessary to control the population, then you are on the Devil's side. If you think casino gambling is acceptable, and you don't have a problem with "Sin City" Las Vegas, then you are not right with God and are His enemy. If you don't see anything wrong with the booze industry, and are glad that prohibition was repealed, then you are on the Devil's side.
There is NO middle ground my friend; you are either hot or cold, on or off, in or out. Where do you stand with the Word of God? Your attitude towards the Bible clearly reveals your attitude towards the God Who Authored the Bible. We are living in apostate times, when Christian men have become sissified wimps, milquetoast, compromised, afraid to take a stand for what is truth and righteous. The Word of God draws the line for us, by defining sin and teaching sound doctrine. There is NO controversy if you believe the Bible. Where do you stand? Fence-straddlers make God vomit.
