This is an important topic to talk about because we live in a world that does not mind you mentioning God, but the moment you mention the name Jesus the Christ, then that is a big problem.
So why would this be such an issue?
Firstly Jesus made it very plain what it takes to even get to the father:
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you have known me, you will also know my Father. From now on you know him and have seen him."
Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will satisfy us."
Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? The person who has seen me has seen the Father. So how can you say, 'Show us the Father.
Jesus also made it very plain to the Jewish audience he was speaking to that he was God in the flesh:
John 8: 53-58
Then the Jews a said to him, "Now we really know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and so did the prophets, but you say, 'If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death.' You aren't greater than our father Abraham, who died, are you? The prophets also died. Who are you making yourself out to be?"
Jesus answered, "If I were trying to glorify myself, my glory would mean nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say, 'He is our God.' You don't know him, but I know him. If I were to say that I don't know him, I would be a liar like you. But I do know him and keep his word. Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day, and he saw it and was glad."
Then the Jews asked him, "You are not even 50 years old, yet you have seen Abraham?" a
Jesus said to them, "Truly, I tell all of you with certainty, before there was an Abraham, I AM!" At this, they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple
He also made it plain why he came to earth in the first place:
John 3: 16 – 19
"For this is how God loved the world:He gave his unique Son so that everyone who believes in him might not be lost but have eternal life. Because God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God's unique Son. And this is the basis for judgment:The light has come into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light because their actions were evil.
This is why the world wants to wipe out the name of Jesus. In many societies where biblical principals and standards were the basis of how they developed, the bible is now being taken out. In those societies a result of this is a drastic moral decline.
Prayer has been taken out of the schools and God has been replaced with humanism. As a result in many cases teachers have lost total control over the students conduct and there is no respect for the teachers authority.
The knock on effect is, there is a generation that don’t even think about the bible or step into a church unless they are being Hatched, Matched or Dispatched!
They is no biblical standard in the home and as a result over the years there has been a massive increase in, domestic violence, babies born outside of wedlock, teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, sexual abuse, general violence, the list can go on and on.
This world is even now trying to change the laws of God and a good examples of this is with the recent push to re-define marriage to say a man and a man or a women and a women can get married.
However this moral decline has not taken God by surprise, he warned us in his word over 2000 years ago that this would happen:
2 Timothy 3: 1-5
You must realize, however, that in the last days difficult times will come. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unfeeling, uncooperative, slander ous, degenerate, brutal, hateful of what is good, traitors, reck less, conceited, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people.
As for trying the change God laws
As for the ten horns,
out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise,
and another shall arise after them;
he shall be different from the former ones,
and shall put down three kings.
He shall speak words against the Most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
and shall think to change the times and the law;
and they shall be given into his hand
for a time, times, and half a time
In these end times, a person cannot plead ignorance because the Bible is being fulfilled right in front of our very eyes. We have a responsibility just like Noah who for 120 years warned people about the coming destruction despite their ridicule.
Our lives are to speak of God’s goodness in every way, so God can use us as a show piece to the enemy, just like he did with Job.
We are to show the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!
The Bible says that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of God will raise a standard against it. So we are to be that standard.
Are you prepared to step up?
Parallel Business Principals
There are many people that try to speak against Network Marketing out of ignorance, even though the industry has helped to free so many families financially.
People would rather believe the lie of corporate security based on the propaganda promoted in the media.
Our school systems promote employment and not empowerment and that is why there are people with PHD’s and Master Degrees that cannot get work or are working as cleaners.
As individuals we choose our own paths but for the person who chooses Network Marketing and is willing to go to work, learn some new skills and help others, they can change their lives.
