God’s Love DOES Rebuke, DOES WARN, and WILL Chasten!!!
“For God SO LOVED the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him SHOULD NOT PERISH, but have EVERLASTING Life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be Saved.
He that [TRULY] believeth on Him is NOT condemned: but he that believeth not IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this [THIS] IS THE CONDEMNATION, that Light is come into the world, and men LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN Light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that doeth evil HATETH the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth Truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God…
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that obeyeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:16-21, 36
The Salvation provided by, and only through, Jesus Christ IS “inclusive” to EVERYONE in the world… however, this DOES NOT mean that EVERYONE is going to Heaven!!!
It is ONLY those who TRULY believe in Jesus Christ and who “take up THEIR cross,” and “deny themselves daily“; their fleshly desires and THEIR will (AND their FALSE gods and IDOLS of the world) and who TRULY OBEY God’s Son; Jesus Christ is going to enter into His Kingdom!!!
“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.
If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [or any other FALSE god or IDOL.]” Matthew 6:22-24
The NLT state Verses 22 & 23 this way… “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!”
The only way to keep your eye “good,” “single,” “clear,” and holy is to seek God’s face… and seek God’s TRUTH and have NOTHING to do with seeking the faces of the world’s FALSE gods and IDOLS… and have NOTHING to do with (EXCEPT to EXPOSE the EVILS of) the FOOLISH fables of Babylon’s magic wand made of Holly-wood… which is something that GOD SAYS has the whole world (INCLUDING many members, and even PASTORS, of MANY of the churches) DECEIVED!!!
And the members of the churches, who take part in this EVIL, have their eyes, AND their hearts and minds… DECEIVED and DIVIDED!!!
Those who WANT the Light will COME TO the Light… “But the way of the wicked is like total darkness. [And] They have no idea what they are stumbling over.” Proverbs 4:19
And it IS “God’s LOVE” that’s telling THEM to, “… Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4
And it is God’s LOVE that IS going to PUNISH them (the CHURCH) IF they do not REPENT… “For the LORD disciplines those He loves, and He punishes each one He accepts as His child.” (Hebrews 12:6) AND Jesus SAID, to the CHURCH,… “Those whom I love I REBUKE and DISCIPLINE. So be earnest, therefore, and REPENT.” Revelation 3:19
“If you DON’T REPENT, I [Jesus Christ] will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches.” Revelation 2:5
