Before I address anything else, please bear with me as I point out some examples of true hatred. I am using the definition of hatred that rose up from Liberalism like a swamp monster from a fog. That definition is; “Anything that disagrees with or in anyway disapproves of what I say or do.” It is enforced by a single rule; to punish the offender as harshly as possible, often with the help of the news media. It is now escalated to the retraction or restriction of one’s Constitutional rights of “life, liberty, the persist of happiness, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion.”
Since the rule only applies to and is enforced against Christians, it is hatred by its own definition. It’s enforcers identify historic and biblical Christian values as hatred, then aggressively force Christians to submit to the false accusation or suffer the loss of their livelihoods, pay outrageousness fines and compensation. It is a massive attempt by Christophobic individuals in the secular realm to force the Remnant of God’s people into becoming “closet” Christians.
By their own definition of hatred, the lawsuits and adjudication are themselves acts of hatred against Christian bakers, flower shop owners, et cetera. They are aggressive acts of hatred because they are unconstitutional infringements on the rights of Christians citizens to live free in our Republic unencumbered by abusive of legislative or judicial power.
Furthermore, the attempts to replace the Constitution of our nation with Sharia Law is an act of hatred. First, our Constitution disallows the violence intrinsic in Islam and the two diametrically opposed Legal Systems cannot coexist. Furthermore, Islam has a worldwide history of gaining by violence what it cannot possibly gain by attraction. It is the most violent and brutal religion against Christians. We cannot retain our Constitution and Christianity cannot exist under Sharia Law.
The fact is that the secular realm is now overrun by people that have Christophobic hatred as a key ingredient in the premise of their character, They are entering every office of society, and then using those offices to illegally, constantly, and abusively instigate hatred against Christians. Concurrently, individuals are not genuine Christians that have slithered into Christianity and have no intention of being Christians by the biblical definition and standard of Christianity. The evidence is the fact that they wish to wear the title, but not to accept or live by its precepts. They are changing Christianity very rapidly to keep pace with the moral decay agents in secularism. They are using the same term “hatred” and method, “attack everyone who disagrees with or disapproves of what I say or do.” You cannot have an honest discussion or debate with any of these individuals because the truth is beyond distasteful to them—it is deeply offensive.
It is no secret that false Christians are attempting to create a religious version of the society that secularists are attempting to establish, and to a great degree have done so. It is being carried out by one of the oldest tricks of Satan. He accuses God’s people of an attribute of his own nature, such as hatred, which accomplishes two things.
First, it obscures that Satan and his emissaries are personifications of hatred. He or they cannot morally and ethically defend their positions. Thus, he initiates the dishonest, and I should add childish, tit-for-tat contest of who is the hypocrite—as two children accusing each other when only one of them is guilty. In such a contest, the one who has the power and control, and is willing to use and abuse it, can force a dishonest conclusion. In the case of Christian “hatred,” secularist use the liberal news media and abuse their political offices to force it to be regarded as truth. In Christianity, false Christians use their superior control of Christian media to do the same.
Second, Satan realizes that he does not have to attack the entirety of Christianity, but merely one of its virtues. Evil individuals do not usually attempt to bring down a good person by attacking their entire life’s activity, but by making one lie plausible and super-horrific. If refusing to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple was so destructive, how did homosexuality exist and grow in the many years when almost the entire nation rejected it. A Christian that exercises his or her freedom of speech and religious right to oppose it has not caused near as much egregious harm as the lawsuits and abuse imposed by the legal system.
However, evil people give each other a pass on shockingly immoral deeds, and yet explode an ages-old alleged comment by a Conservative into a concerted attack on their entire character. Likewise, diabolical individuals have convinced society that the biblical truth about homosexuality is an aggressive act of hatred.
This Little Light of Mine
Having established the false definition of “hatred” and misuse it to attack Christians, the question is begged, “What is the objective of this attack?” The answer is simply to put out the Christian light. The world and apostate Christianity have now reached the point where they cannot tolerate even a sliver of light. God’s word is clear that wicked individuals hate the light because it exposes their works as evil.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” (John 3:19-21)
The smaller light of true Christians ought to reflect the greater light of Christ. Our secular and religious societies are becoming so dark that the light appears even more bright. The evil deeds of abortion, homosexuality, pedophilia, transgenderism, et cetera, are exposed and reproved by the light. Diabolical individuals want that light to be completely put out. They desire a world of total darkness. In the secular and Christianity realms, we are witnessing completely demonic individuals unashamedly and apparently without a hint of guilt, speaking and committing bizarre works of darkness. The more we are intimate with God, the more offensive we will be to them. But we are not called to compromise with or sooth the deeds of the wicked. We are called to shine—which exposes the works of darkness.
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.” (Ephesians 5:11-13)
“…that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;” (Philippians 2:15)
John the Baptist was called by Christ “a burning and a shining, light.” (John 5:35) True Christians are to shine the light as a “city set on a hill.” (Matthew 5:14).
By converting the biblical truth about homosexuality into “hatred,” numerous leading Christians were convinced to compromise and accept homosexuality and even homosexual marriage. However, it is clear that a Christian for whatever reason that refuses to shine the light of Christ is suppressing God’s Divine Nature, the Holy Spirit, that dwells in them. Continuing to refuse to shine and ignoring subsequent conviction will result in the Holy Spirit departing from them. The result is that individuals will have inner darkness.
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (2 Corinthians 6:19-20)
“If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.” (1 Corinthians 3:17)
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7)
The objective of Satan and his secular and religious minions is to force Christians to swerve from the light and eventually to compromise with and walk in darkness. The Greek word for “walk”—obviously implied figuratively in the above passage—is peripatéō, which means, “to live, regulate one’s life, conduct oneself.”
The growing pressure to force professing Christians to abandon godliness and to re-order their lives to conform to the world system is working. That is what this entire fiasco of flagrant and senseless wicked and dishonest use of terminologies in secular and religious realms is all about. It is the release of a deluge of satanic hatred against the light of true Christians—God’s Remnant. Individuals that allow the massive offensive to press them into apathetic caves, and to turn down or turn off their lights, are in deep and serious trouble. They will be complicit in plunging the world in near total darkness.
This message convicts all of us. It compels us to search our hearts for any hint of compromise. If today we cannot refer to transgenderism as diabolical, what will we be forced to keep silent about tomorrow? When pedophilia is accepted as a genuine sexual orientation, and we witness parents submitting their children to a sleepover with pedophiles, will we mute our outrage? We are already witnessing parents attempting to change the gender of their children. When will that evil activity also be condoned by leading Christians under the guise of being loving and compassionate? Why are professing Christians not insisting that their pastors speak against this wickedness? Why should pastors have to be pressured to speak against the darkness? Why are denominational and other leaders remaining silent or making statements so cautious and benign as to offend no one? Are they all sleeping dogs?
“His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.” (Isaiah 56:10)
Our Light Affliction
When considering being a vocal and active representative of Christ, there is the pressing question; “Is it worth the rejection, pain, material loss, and other serious consequences?” The answer is practically shouted from what a true light-shiner and fellow sufferer wrote.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)
The answer is, if you have the eternal perspective, “Yes! It is worth whatever the cost!” Shine, dear brothers and sisters—shine!
