MORNING DEW: 29/11/2019
SCRIPTURE: ROMANS 1:18-32
18 For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all the ungodliness and wickedness of those who in their wickedness suppress the truth.
19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God himself has made it plain to them.
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been understood and observed by what he made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead, their thoughts turned to worthless things, and their senseless hearts were darkened.
22 Though claiming to be wise, they became fools
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images that looked like mortal human beings, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles.
24 For this reason, God delivered them to sexual impurity as they followed the lusts of their hearts and dishonored their bodies with one another.
25 They exchanged God’s truth for a lie and worshipped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason, God delivered them to degrading passions as their females exchanged their natural sexual function for one that is unnatural.
27 In the same way, their males also abandoned their natural sexual function toward females and burned with lust toward one another. Males committed indecent acts with males, and received within themselves the appropriate penalty for their perversion.
28 Furthermore, because they did not think it worthwhile to keep knowing God fully, God delivered them to degraded minds to perform acts that should not be done.
29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, quarreling, deceit, and viciousness. They are gossips,
30 slanderers, God-haters, haughty, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to their parents,
31 foolish, faithless, heartless, and ruthless.
32 Although they know God’s just requirement—that those who practice such things deserve to die—they not only do these things but even applaud others who practice them.”
Making It Real
GOD’S WRATH ON HUMANITY
“God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all the ungodliness and wickedness of those who in their wickedness suppress the truth.”
God is patient, having in mind the wicked ones will repent, but no, they would not. Everything about God is made plain to humankind yet some people will open their mouths, with God allowing it, and declare; there is no God. It is funny and pity. Even animals dare not make such statement, but human beings do. The Psalmist puts it this way;
“Fools say to themselves, “There is no God.” They are corrupt and commit evil deeds; not one of them practices what is good” (Psalm 14:1).
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes – his eternal power and divine nature – have been understood and observed by what he made, so that people are without excuse.”
So what else do you want to know about God? Because people are filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity, they don’t want to honour God. They can kill, they are arrogant, homosexuals, lesbians, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient, heartless, foolish, faithless and ruthless.
“Their males abandoned their natural sexual function towards females and burned with lust toward one another.”
This is a big shame. In the beginning God made them male and female not male and male or female and female.
“Their females exchanged their natural sexual function for one that is unnatural.”
This is total madness.
Even animals understand natural laws.
Because they have refused to acknowledge God He delivered them to degraded minds to perform acts that should not be done and instead of repenting they are annoying God the more.
“Although they know God’s just requirement – that those who practice such things deserve to die – they not only do these things but even applaud others who practice them.”
Those who do such things deserve to die and all those who support them carry same punishment. Only a degraded mind supports a degraded character. A prostitute supports her fellow prostitute. Have you seen an armed robber preaching against his fellow armed robbers? God’s requirement on these acts are clear. The principle of life is simple; whatever seed you put in the ground is what you will harvest.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7).
Beloved, repent now! Give your life to Jesus because all those who practice wickedness such as homosexuality, lesbianism, murder, greed, evil, disobedience, God – haters, haughty, gossipers, arrogant, heartless, ruthless, boastful, slanderers, foolishness, etc., will have their place in the hell fire.
Are they animals or humans?
THE HOUR IS NOW!
“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead, their thoughts turned to worthless things, and their senseless hearts were darkened.” (Romans 1:21).
I have come to you, Lord. I need a new heart, forgive me all my sins and give me a new heart, to live for you, in Jesus’ Name!
