O Generation of Vipers

Matt3:O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Once again, it's not the heathen who get the rebuke, it's the "so called" people of God, the religious people. The Holy Spirit cuts them right off at the feet when He says 9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father. What you call yourself or think to yourself does'nt really matter if it's in conflict with what Jesus thinks of you. You call yourself a "christian." Great, so what? You're a "good person?" Great, so what? You "go to church," hmm slight problem there, if you have to "GO" to church, that means YOU ARE NOT the church, and if you ARE NOT the church that means you are not Christ's body, which means you are not "in Christ" which means you're lost. So you "go to church" , you're a "good person" and you and your social club call themselves "christians." That and three dollars (inflation:-) might get you a cup of coffee somewhere. We need to take HARD SOBER LOOKS AT OURSELVES. This world is living on borrowed time, and none of us has any guarantee that we'll make it through today. WAKE UP, PRAY, strengthen what you have within you, stay motivated, time is short. Grace and Peace
