Their Throat Is An Open Grave

We were told and we should know. Nothing comes as a surprise. Persecution will come, evil will increase and liars will be more bold in their deceptions.

There are too many things happening in our world to point the finger at single instances of evil. The mobs come in physical and digital form to persecute those belonging to the Way. (see Acts 9)

Furthermore Satan has been coming for the babies in an effort to destroy God’s plan for centuries (See Moses and Jesus as targets of infanticide).

But God is still in control and that will not change. He will carry us through the evil acts of Satan and man to fulfill His ultimate plan.

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Romans 1:21‭, ‬24‭-‬25 NASB

Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

2 Timothy 3:12‭-‬13 NASB


Remember it is said of all that we are sinners. Yet forgiveness and understanding is given to those who believe in Christ Jesus. Our part is to love and share the Gospel of Jesus with those around us.

as it is written,

” there is none righteous , not even one ; there is none who understands , there is none who seeks for God ; all have turned aside , together they have become useless ; there is none who does good , there is not even one .”

” their throat is an open grave , with their tongues they keep deceiving ,”

” the poison of asps is under their lips “; ” whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness “;

” their feet are swift to shed blood , destruction and misery are in their paths , and the path of peace they have not known .”

” there is no fear of God before their eyes .”

Romans 3:10‭-‬18 NASB

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”
Romans 1:18‭-‬32 NASB

Evangelists

As the Lord is sovereign He has planned for me to be in Charlotte, NC this week. It is only three weeks after the death of evangelist Billy Graham. I came for business. I didn’t have to pay a dime. But during my time here I was able to visit the Billy Graham Library.

As I walked through the life of Billy Graham I was able to see that we are all called to be evangelists in our own spheres and networks of people we come in contact with.

We may even need to blaze a trail in our own churches and communities to bring the Gospel to every soul from every race and every economic situation.

In James 2 we are challenged to not show favoritism. We are told that this is a sin. This includes favoritism in all forms.
