Hypocrites Exposed

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 26, 2013

This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:49-50

There are posers who profess to know God, but He will one day say to them, “I never knew you.” It is scary to think an individual can believe they are ok with the Lord when they are not. Maybe they heard the truth of the Cross, but they did not receive the truth by faith into their heart. There has not been an exchange of trust in themselves to a total dependence on Christ. Fools may have good religious feelings, but they have not surrendered to the convicting power of the Holy Spirit.

Have you truly trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Is your love and affection captured by the love of your Heavenly Father? If not, it is wise to be circumspect about your commitment to Christ. As Jesus stated, mingling with the good fish does not make you a good fish. A bad fish smells like a fish, looks like a fish and tastes like a fish, but it remains in its original state until it’s drawn to heaven by God. Make sure the scales of sin are removed from your spiritual eyes.

Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized. Acts 9:18

It is uncomfortable to picture a loving God having a system of judgment that includes hell. However, would He really be loving if He did not punish sin and expose religious hypocrites for pretending to be something they’re not–true followers of Jesus? We water down the Word of God when we feel like we have to apologize for the Lord’s consequences that accompany improper beliefs. Oh how He loves us, because on Judgment Day, wrongs will be made right in His sight.

Therefore, in the meantime, pray for those who genuinely believe they are right with God but have yet to be born again. Teach those who are religious but lost about a desperate desire for the Lord that follows submission to the Lord. Help fellow church members move from a head full of knowledge to a heart full of passion to pray. Information about Jesus becomes alive, when you experience Jesus in a personal, loving and intimate relationship. Ask the Holy Spirit to flush out impostors today, before it is too late to change. Better  a hypocrite’s exposure now, than then.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

Prayer: Heavenly Father lead me into a genuine relationship with You through Your son Jesus.

    I belive this in a way. I’m in a position where a man molested my son and took advantage of our trust in him. And some things I recently didn’t want to expose to the church about my personal life has turned upside down. So even the wicked can get off and walk away with things they’ve done if your not completely honest. If this is not so let me know where I went wrong as a parent trusting in what the church taught.

    No good deed goes unpunished says The Lord! Regardless of how truthful you were, he will still be punished for what he has done to your child!

  3. I am the business owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to broaden my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I thought that the very best way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a trusted website where I can get CBD Shops B2B Business Data List I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Many thanks, However I am going through difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand why I cannot join it. Is there anybody else having identical RSS problems? Anyone who knows the answer can you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  7. May I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody who actually knows what they’re discussing over the internet. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you most certainly have the gift.
