Does it matter if a woman believes she is pregnant or not? No, either she is or she isn’t. She cannot believe a baby into existence nor ignore its existence if inside her womb growing. That’s the way the Laws that God put into place concerning cause and consequence. Even if we are sorry for our sins, the consequence exists. If we turn to God sooner rather than later, the consequence can be lesser.
Integrity is an intricate part of walking on the Way called Holiness. We cannot be dishonest and walk with the Lord, because the Father of Lies is Satan. We cannot have fellowship with both.
Honesty starts in the messages that we tell ourselves. I could tell myself that I am pregnant, but I am not. I need to grasp the truth. If I continue to permit myself to believe in the pregnancy, I will have signs that will promote the lie, such as a larger abdomen, swelling breasts, and morning sickness. However, when I am forced to see the truth, I may have a nervous breakdown or a physical illness. The worst consequence is that I have practiced deceit to myself. How can I continue towards honesty?
Anytime we have permitted self deceit, we will either make excuses, justifying our actions and thoughts, or we will be broken hearted and change our ways. Giving reasons, justifying actions, feeling like the exception, blaming others, should be red flags. IF WE DO NOT REPENT, WE CANNOT BE FORGIVEN. If we continue in the sin, we are not repentant.
Repentance is central to the Christian walk. Seeking holiness, or a genuine walk with God through Jesus Christ, means striving for wholeness, purity, truth. If we avoid the truth, it is like walking without our feet touching the ground. We have no self control and our reality is suspect. Repentance requires a change of attitude, and a decision to do things differently. A broken heart accompanies repentance. Repentance always hurts initially, but leads to peace. True acceptance of forgiveness leads to praising the Lord.
At the end of time at the Great Throne where all shall be judged Jesus says:
It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murders, sexually immoral,, sorcerers (drug addicts and devil worshipers), idolaters, and ALL LIARS shall have their part in the lake which buns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
Search my heart, O Lord
And see if there be any wicked way in my.
Cleanse me with hyssop
And I shall be whiter than snow.
John the Baptist said to repent and to make straight the highway for our Lord. This was not just for the life of Jesus on earth, but this message is for us today.
Peace I leave with you, not as the world leave I unto you.
Blessings to all who have read to the end.
