Throw Down Your Rocks

I was minding my own business during one of my morning walks as I often do; and I heard Holy Spirit say; tell my people "he that is without sin, cast the first stone." When I arrived back home He continued to talk to me about how His people are yielding to a critical spirit and judging just like the world and are going to be judged for every idle word. There is a familiar story that took place in the book of John chapter 8 about the woman caught in adultery and "the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?" First of all, let's break down the details; the scriptures says the scribes and Pharisees brought her up on "charges" of adultery. Why was this like so many other current news stories which appear to be one-sided-people are not guilty until proven innocent, instead of the other way around. The populist is now calling evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20). When we as the Church finally realize who we are, we will not fear the "legal system" over the "kingdom system." We will speak up for what is right and not what is best for a particular party.

The scribes back in the day were a group of Jewish leaders who flourished from the time of the Exile until the destruction of the Jewish state by Titus. Originally their name was used merely of clerks whose function was to copy royal and sacred manuscripts. The Pharisees on the other hand were law experts. Their name comes from the Hebrew and Aramaic parush or parushi, which means "one who is separated." It may refer to their separation from Gentiles, sources of ritual impurity or from irreligious Jews. ... As Josephus noted, the Pharisees were considered the most expert and accurate expositors of Jewish law. So we can say in our language today, they were law experts (lawyers) and law clerks, but not "spiritual" people. In any case, the problem is when the government of God; God's leaders (Apostles, Prophets, Teacher, Pastor and Evangelist) are listening, teaching and preaching this Antichrist message of judgment, unforgiveness and criticism to God's people. My Bible tells me to forgive, so I can be forgiven, and judge not lest I be judge; and to pull the mote out of my own eye before I can take the splinter out of my brothers' (Matthew 6:12-15, Matthew 7:1). I've said it once and I will keep saying until... we spend far too much time on Facebook when our face should be in the book (Bible) and in His presence. Let's stop being men pleasers and become God pleasers- you can't do both. There's a promise of reward when you please God (Hebrews 11:6)

And just in case you missed the memo from the home office of heaven, Jesus is coming again and when He returns His Church will be holy, without spot or blemish. This is not our home, we are just passing through but here for a specific purpose. Have you forgotten your purpose?

Let's get back to loving God and loving people (all people)

His love is patient, His love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV)

Let His love prevail in us.
