THE DELUSION OF WRONG WORSHIP 3

Devotional/Bible Plan Audio: http://bit.ly/1VgcZLY

Rom 1:28
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; [KJV]

A heart that does not retain God in it's knowledge is doomed. It is a heart that excuses God because of misguided sophistication or certain prevailing circumstances. The concept of God is not firmly rooted in his heart and he or she adapts to the environment like a spiritual chameleon. Such Christians may even find scriptures to support their waywardness. They are in delusion, though they may think they know God. They eventually find themselves doing abominable acts yet remaining blind to their need of repentance. This is the state the Scriptures call 'reprobate'.

A certain prophet called Balaam was so deluded. The Scriptures called it "madness" (2 Pet 2:15-16). Balaam lost control. Like Cain, he wandered away in a very vast spiritual wilderness. Balaam still heard from God (or so, he thought), yet he was already so far from the true worship of God.

King Saul is another example. It got so bad that he consulted a witch (1 Sam 28:7-14). When a man does not retain God in his knowledge; be it spiritual knowledge or otherwise, he is exposed to familiar spirits. These are spirits who are conversant with your spiritual experiences and can sustain them while preserving the faulty state of your heart. A vicious weapon of the devil in this end time is deception (Mat 24:4; 1 Tim 4:1; 1 Jn 4:1). Beware.

Go into to examining your heart.

Prayer: Lord, I hand over my heart to You. Search me and know me. Save me from every delusion. In Jesus' name. Amen. Not born again? Click: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
