“Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the LORD, “Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin; Isaiah 30:1
This message is very relevant to the modern day Church. Just as Israel tried to incorporate sin into the doctrine of God. We see Churches changing their stance on same sex marriage and homosexuality, we see many changing doctrines on who Jesus really is. Notice God said “This is Not My Plan”!
The problem with religion is we try to mold and form it to conform to our ways rather than conform to Gods ways. Rather than denying ourselves to Christ, we are trying to redefine Christ so we don’t have to die. Your old self must die before you can become Born Again! You cant continue to be rebellious and be a servant of Christ
For this is a rebellious people, false sons, Sons who refuse to listen To the instruction of the LORD; Isaiah 30:9
Rebellious people who refuse to listen to Gods instructions, sounds familiar? This was Israel, this is the modern day Church. As God said “This is not of My Spirit”, the modern day Church is not being led by the Holy Spirit. They are being led by the world and they are misleading millions away from God
Heavenly Father, we pray for the Church, we pray the Holy Spirit will convict and sanctify the remnant , in Jesus Name Amen!
