Holy Boldness Against Sin
“Then I said: “Ah, Lord God, behold, the prophets say to them, ‘You shall not see the sword, nor shall you have famine, but I will give you assured peace in this place.’” And the Lord said to me: “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds. Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name although I did not send them, and who say, ‘Sword and famine shall not come upon this land’: By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword, with none to bury them—them, their wives, their sons, and their daughters.” 9Jeremiah 14:13-16 KJV)
God hates sin, but He doesn’t hate sinners. He is a God of forgiveness. When you commit a mistake, be bold enough to admit that mistake and repent. God looks at the heart. He is delighted when people know how to repent.
Christ came as a sinless being. He came to the world to cleanse us of all our unrighteousness. But, he alone displayed the essence of prayer and repentance in our lives. He prayed earnestly to God, and sought his will. He prayed for the sins of the world, and begged his father to forgive the people.
A true prophet is not afraid to face condemnation, for God will not let any disciple of His grieve or trouble His devoted disciples without His permission. He won’t allow the works of the enemy to overpower the Holy Spirit that is within them. The Bible says to the man of God, “Lift up his voice, cry aloud, and spare not – showing my people their sins.” Therefore, a true man of God is transparent. He demonstrates boldness against sin. God is mad at sin, so does His children. He is not pleased with people who are compromising their Christianity for wickedness.
Have your sins blinded you of God’s standard? Are you still living a holy life before God? Remember that the truth sets you free. You don’t need to cover up your sins. Acts that aren’t pleasing to God shall be exposed, and shall not be condemned.
God has told us that in these last days, young men of God will see visions. It won’t only be visions of success, or achievements; but it will be a vision of GOD! Christ didn’t come to condemn us from ungodliness. He came that we may have light, and to repent from all our sins. Hold on to this truth. Do not be blinded with prophecies teaching you to justify your wrongdoings. Do not be afraid to confess to God. He is a God of many chances.
