Msg #1925 Christ's Love Will Stand, Part II

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

Romans 8 closes with seventeen things that vie for your separation from God, and the last ten are on a spiritual plane. None will separate us from the love of Christ, but all are enemies that contend for your soul. The list leads with Death. It is swallowed up in victory and lost its sting! The sting of death is sin and our Lord Jesus Christ purchased that victory (1Cor15:54-57). Life itself also contends for all of our attention, and Jesus' counsel is, “Take no thought for your life... seek ye the kingdom of God” (Luke12:22,31). Angels, Principalities, and Powers make the list. It was an “angel” that gave “another-gospel,” the Koran, to Mohammad in a cave near Mecca, and an “angel” gave “another-gospel,” the book-of-Mormon, to Joseph Smith in Palmyra NY. They are accursed (Gal 1:8). Principalities and Powers are dealt with in Ephesians 6:12. We war in a time dimension, i.e. Things-Present, Things-to-Come. Fretting is an art crafted by those not trusting Christ. Lastly, it is sobering how many “Christians” enter the Height-of-ignorance, or the Depth-of-foolishness. Believing in a flat-earth, gaps in creation and Nethinims, or salvation by election cannot separate us from the love of Christ, but it sure makes one an ineffective and side-tracked servant. Any-other-creature, the tenth spiritual enemy listed, answers for the height-of-ignorance that supposes martians, space-aliens, or extraterrestrials might exist in God's made-for-man universe. These ten spiritual entities strive to separate us from our Lord. None can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. They can, however, separate us from service and fellowship. “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1Pet 1:13).
