We may be a part of a natural human household and yet to the supernatural be in a completely different home. This spiritual difference can many times put us at odds with our natural family members
. This is why we are warned in Matthew 10:36,
36 and 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household.'
The Godly may not even be able to stay in the same carnal household with those that walk the ways of Satan. Thankfully those who choose to be separate
and walk with God will be rewarded for their loyalty to Him as shown in Matthew 19.
29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.
Luke 18:29-30 says close to the same thing.
29 So He said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, (we as His family are to be establishing the Kingdom of God and about the Father's business)
30 who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life."
Let us read from II Corinthians 6:12-18 where he said,
12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections (worldly things you enjoy and do not want to give up).
13 Now in return for the same (I speak as to children), you also be open.
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? (we become like the company we keep if in our hearts we are friends with them)
16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: " I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people."
17 Therefore "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you."
18 "I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty."
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Satan loves it, because those in his house that are not into the things of God see those that supposedly are as hypocrites, a people that are two-faced
, and guess what, they are! They are both good and evil like the one they are in the image of
. The truth is, the early church spoke much concerning not being under the law any longer, but they were speaking about the law of Moses. The early apostles were trying to persuade those wrapped up in Judaism to move forward to Christianity
and the grace of God. The laws on our hearts however were and still are to be obeyed
. His grace is, He will forgive those that are trying to be obedient to His commandments, but make mistakes
. These will sincerely love the Lord more, because they see that they could never make it on a daily basis if it wasn't for the Lord. Their love and relationship
is renewed every day. Our sins are completely cleansed by the blood of the Lamb when we repent
if we are sincere. However, how can people ask forgiveness for breaking laws they are not even aware exist
Then there are those that know the commandments, but refuse to comply. These are just plain rebellious and totally lawless
. II Thessalonians, 2nd
chapter speaks of the lawless ones. When united they become one, the body of Satan, and as such, form the lawless one, Antichrist.
II Thessalonians 2:8-12 explains,
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last."
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."
