Don’t Push God’s Grace

Leave a comment

(Acts 5:1-11)

Don’t push God’s grace. I have heard many wonderful messages on “the God of the second chance”. I have to admit that in my life, it has been the God of the “I can’t count that high” chances. I have been guilty in my life of rolling the dice and counting on God’s grace to be there. Let me share something with you today that you MUST listen to. There is NO PLACE in the bible that promises you a second chance.

The messages on “the God of the second chance” are testimonies….NOT Biblical promises. Again, there is NO PLACE in the Bible where God promises you a second chance. However I do believe, that as long as you have breath, you can receive God’s grace. That is where you are playing spiritual roulette. The Bible does tell us that tomorrow is not guaranteed to any of us. Read today’s Scripture about Ananias and Sapphira.

The point of today’s Devotional is as a warning, a wake-up call to those who are living in rebellion to God’s will and plan for their life. Those who are betting that they can enjoy the fruits of sin and at some point “get right” with God…that may work…you may get lucky. But are you willing to bet eternity on a few moments of pleasure? Let me tell you the other fallacy in that thinking.

Once you are involved in sinful activities, it becomes like quicksand. You may want out, but at some point you realize that you can’t get out. Sin lures you in, like the Venus flytrap, and all of the sudden you can’t escape. You stop praying, you stop reading the Bible, you stop going to church, and you turn off any message of God. It becomes a slippery slope and each day you fall farther, making it harder to escape. I am speaking to many of you today, and you know who you are.

The answer? God sends His Word to you at various times to help you escape. He loves you! He has a perfect plan for your life. This message today is one of those times that God is speaking directly to your heart. This is not an accident that you are reading this today. The answer? Run from your sin and run to God before it is too late. The story of Ananias and Sapphira is NOT a work of fiction.

It happened. These were real people. They tempted God, pushed His grace, and lost! God is giving you an opportunity today to turn away from your sin. He will help you. He will strengthen you. Don’t miss this chance, because THERE IS NO GUARANTEE YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER ONE.

I love you and care about you. These are tough words because I know so many are hurting and in the midst of great turmoil. However, I have to be honest with you, because you need someone to tell it like it is. You can count on my prayers, and if I can help in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.

The most important question to ask yourself is this. am I really happy with my life, living in rebellion to God? If the answer is no, then find a quiet place right now, and simply ask God to forgive you, repent of your sins, and ask Him to help you come back to Him. He is extending His grace to you today. Don’t take that grace for granted.

Tyler Clementi is the Rutgers Student who Committed Suicide after a Video of Him was Made Public

(1 Thessalonians 4:3; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

***PARENTS: THE HOMOSEXUAL COMMUNITY IS USING THE SCHOOLS TO CRAM THEIR DEVIANT CHOICE OF SEX DOWN THE THROATS OF YOUR CHILDREN! IN THE YEAR 2010 YOU CAN’T PRAY IN SCHOOL, YOU CAN’T READ THE BIBLE IN SCHOOL, BUT YOU CAN INDOCTRINATE THE IMPRESSIONABLE YOUNG MINDS OF YOUR CHILDREN THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS AN ACCEPTABLE AND EVEN DESIROUS CHOICE OF SEX.

Tyler Clementi is the Rutgers student who committed suicide after a video of him engaging in homosexual acts was made public. Clementi has become the new poster boy for the radical homosexual movement which has been using his suicide to further their goal of making homosexuality mainstream. The homosexual lobby is blaming people like myself for Clementi’s death, saying that by denouncing homosexuality as a sin, it creates an atmosphere for people to bully those who choose to commit homosexual acts and puts the lives of those who choose to engage in this type of sinful activity at risk.

WRONG! It is not those who call the sin of homosexuality what God calls it, sin, who are responsible for Clementi’s death, but if there is any blame outside of Clementi who made the CHOICE to engage in homosexual acts and the CHOICE to take his own life, that blame is on the homosexual community for promoting their unhealthy, unnatural, and perverted lifestyle on children. It is disgusting that they have for decades targeted children as young as elementary school in order to brainwash them that there is nothing wrong with this sexual choice.

On the Liveprayer TV program, I often get calls from viewers who start out by saying, “I am a homosexual.” Whenever that happens, I immediately jump in before I allow them to continue to correct them. I point out the fact that there is no such thing as a homosexual, only a homosexual act. There are people who CHOOSE to have sex with people of the same sex, but that is a sexual act, not who a person is. I have to admit, the saddest calls like this are from young men and women, clearly in their teens, calling up and claiming to be “gay” or “lesbian.” These young adults have as much business engaging in any sexual activity as they do performing brain surgery!!!

Today, I want to expose this orchestrated plan by the homosexual community to brainwash your children that this sin is a perfectly acceptable choice and to warn those who are not aware to what extent the pro-homosexual agenda is being fulfilled, while hopefully wake up the bloated, weak, and apathetic church that has to bear much of the responsibility for the moral decay of our culture. The goal of those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle is to justify their sinful choice that is inherently destructive both to society and themselves. They are trying to force society to validate legally and ethically their choice of sexual behavior and relationships, and to enact laws that allow them to promote this sinful choice to our children as normal, even desirable behavior.

That is what is most upsetting to me. Whether you understand it or not, YOUR children are being targeted by the pro-homosexual community to indoctrinate them almost from birth that this choice of sexual relationship is normal, acceptable, and desirable. They have done this through infiltrating the school curriculum with pro-homosexual material, they have done this through the 3,000+ “gay clubs” in schools all over the nation, and they have masterfully used the media (TV, movies, Internet, music) to, day after day after day tell the world there is nothing wrong with this choice of sexuality.

It is very disturbing to hear a 14-year-old boy, a 15-year-old girl claiming to be gay or lesbian. When pressed if they were actually having sex they usually say no. The fact is, a 14-year-old boy or a 15-year-old girl are no more gay or lesbian than I am a giraffe! Just because I call myself a giraffe doesn’t make me one. They have simply bought into the “gay lie” that is being promoted by the pro-homosexual community and told loud enough, often enough in our society that these CHILDREN have this warped idea they are something other than how God created them. GOD DID NOT CREATE MEN TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN, OR WOMEN TO HAVE SEX WITH WOMEN! Those who do are committing unnatural acts in complete rebellion to God.

Let me say right up front, sin is sin in God’s eyes. No sin is greater than another. The sin of homosexuality is no more, or no less a sin than murder, adultery, stealing, lying, gossiping, or gluttony. THE REASON THIS SIN IS BEING SINGLED OUT AND ADDRESSED IS BECAUSE THOSE WHO COMMIT IT, ARE PROUD OF THEIR SIN AND PROMOTE IT AS AN ACCEPTABLE LIFESTYLE!

People who commit adultery do NOT have parades to celebrate their sin. People who commit murder do NOT have political action committees to make murder legal and socially acceptable. People who steal do not have high school clubs and try to teach children that stealing is acceptable behavior. Homosexuality is a SIN in the eyes of God and is something to be ashamed of, NOT proud of.

Theologically this is not even a debatable issue. All through the Bible, from the Old Testament through the New, homosexuality is defined by God as a sin, PERIOD. God calls it an ABOMINATION! I have heard the tortured theological arguments homosexuals have made, but there is absolutely NO WAY to change the fact this act is a sin. Just because there is now a homosexual version of the Bible where they have literally changed the passages that call this act a sin, that does NOT change God’s inspired, inerrant Word.

Just because there is a fast growing homosexual denomination, the Metropolitan Community of Churches, that does NOT change the fact God calls this act a sin. I can guarantee you if I started a church that taught adultery was acceptable and wonderful behavior, I could fill stadiums on Sunday morning! THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN CHANGE THE FACT GOD CALLS HOMOSEXUALITY A SIN!!!

The two greatest lies the pro-homosexual community has put out are that 1) homosexuality is something that you are “born with,” 2) 10% or more in our society are homosexual. First, modern science has CLEARLY rejected and been unable to prove that ANYONE is “born gay.” IT IS A CHOICE!!!! GOD DID NOT MAKE ANYONE “GAY!” PEOPLE CHOOSE TO ENGAGE IN HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR!!!! LIKE ALL SIN, ONCE YOU DO IT LONG ENOUGH, IT MAY SEEM ‘NATURAL’, BUT IT IS STILL A CHOICE THAT YOU MAKE. The “struggle” people who choose this sin speak of is the same “struggle” we all have, to obey God or to sin! Also, all legitimate studies done by the non-homosexual community clearly show that less then 1% of the population EVER engage in this type of sexual sin.

A foolish argument from those who choose this sin is that “why would anyone choose something that brought them ridicule, condemnation, and the hatred of so many?” People make that choice every day! I deal daily with men and women who CHOOSE to commit adultery and destroy their marriage, lose the love and respect of their children, in many cases ruin their career. People who choose sin choose to deal with the consequences of their sin.

Of course, anyone who dares to speak up on this issue is labeled as “intolerant” and a “homophobe.” I find it amusing that Dr. Laura, who correctly pointed out that homosexuality is a deviant lifestyle, had her television program targeted and eventually taken off the air by the homosexual community. So this group that calls for tolerance by others, is very INTOLERANT when someone opposes their views. They also use the word “homophobe” to intimidate people from speaking out against their sexual choice.

It upsets the pro-homosexual community that the Liveprayer TV program is on the Internet, specifically so nobody can tell me what I can and cannot say. So they have no way to silence me other than to try and intimidate me. I CANNOT BE SILENT ON THIS ISSUE BECAUSE IT IS NOT ONLY A BONDAGE MANY MEN AND WOMEN NEED TO BE SET FREE FROM, BUT IT IS HELPING TO DESTROY THE LIVES OF YOUR CHILDREN!

I love you and care about you so much. Every parent needs to be aware that your sons and daughters are being taught engaging in sex with a person of the same-sex is the “in thing.” Lastly, you better be VERY AWARE of what is on television, in music, and out in the culture that is constantly sending the message to your children that homosexuality is a normal and acceptable CHOICE!

The church better wake up and realize that while they have been building great buildings and getting fat, satan has been busy using the sin of homosexuality to destroy the lives of our children. As much of an abomination as homosexual churches are, equally as abominable to God are regular churches that accept homosexuality as a normal lifestyle!

We live in a free society. If people who have chosen to engage in homosexual activity want to have their own schools, their own churches, their own television network, they have every right to. It is about time the church wakes up and realizes that those who promote this sin are bold and are stopping at NOTHING to get their message out to the masses, and targeting the children!

THAT is why I am always talking about how the church, those who know Christ as their Savior, have got to quit preaching to the choir and start taking the hope and love of Christ to the world at large. As those who follow Christ, we also have a responsibility to pray for those who are in this bondage, for God to open their hearts to the truth of His Word, and to turn from their sin. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality, we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin.

Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God’s Word, we must pray for them, just like we must pray for everyone who is battling sin in their life.

For those reading this who are currently fighting homosexuality, let me tell you that God has never stopped loving you, and is simply waiting for you to turn from your sin and come back to Him. We serve a God of deliverance from sin, a God of forgiveness, and a God of restoration. Millions have turned from the sin of homosexuality and found complete restoration and fulfillment in living a life according to God’s plan. What He did for someone else, He can do for you! I pray today that you hear these words, and choose to find freedom from your sin today. That freedom is only a prayer away!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
