What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
In the days prior to the pending chastisement of Israel and Judah, God implores them to, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you” (Hosea 10:12). Evangelist Charles Finney (1792-1875) wrote eloquently on breaking up fallow ground in his, “Lectures on Revival” (see ccel.org for your free ebook copy), and in the stay of America's chastisement, achieved via our 2016 presidential election and expectant 2020 one, believers need to be busy breaking up fallow ground and sowing seeds of righteousness. Five times we are commissioned to do just that (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:46-48, John 20:21 and Acts 1:8) and Luke 24:47 declares “that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” There is a movement afoot to poo-poo repentance but it is essential to God's Simple Plan of Salvation. In our AAA society filled with Atheism, Apostasy, and Apathy we need some AAAs of Repentance. True Biblical repentance must contain: 1) Awareness of Sin - in a Godless education with no Creator a harsh emphasis on ones SIN is now essential; 2) Admittance of Sin - “Do you think of yourself as a sinner?” is an important question to ask; 3) Abhorrence of Sin - A realization that sin causes an irreconcilable separation from God our Creator; 4) Abandonment of Sin - A sincere heart felt desire to get rid of that irreconcilable separation; and 5) Abstinence of Sin -. A sincere heart felt desire to “Go and sin no more.” The 1-2-3 pray after me methods are dangerous in the Bible ignorant society of today. Preach the Bible's old-fashioned repentance and remission of sins... while there is time.
