“Mockers – 101”…Blog.
Recently there have been… a lot of posting by ‘Mockers’ on the “FB Bible” site. They have come there to post mockings about the Bible and Christian beliefs’. Ever wonder what kind of life they ‘Really’ have…? It must be a “shallow one”, to come and mock something that one does not believe in? It was be as silly as one, mocking a Pink Elephant. This group of ‘Mockers’ contains many Pseudo Christians, Atheists’, Agnostic and just “plain & simple”, ‘Non-Believers!’
*** (Jude 1:17-18-19) But you, beloved, = remember the words = spoken before = by the apostles = of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(Jude 1:18) Because they told you = that at the ‘last time’ = there will be = “MOCKERS” = according to their lusts, = leading = ‘ungodly’ lives.
(Jude 1:19) These are those = setting themselves apart, = animal-like ones, = not having = the [Holy] Spirit.
There is a War… that has been going on for the… ‘Hearts & Minds’… of mankind. It has to do with God and His Word, the Bible. Each one of us, likes to believe that we are, bosses in our own lives. We pick the houses we live in, the vehicles we drive, the job we work at and the ones we Love. Yet in this, “Thought of Controlling our Live”… we fail to realize that most of that is simply an ‘illusion of control’. We make certain choices… driven by our desires and many times… ‘not’ with our “Though Processes!”
*** (James 1:13-to-16) When someone is tempted, = he should not say, = "I am being tempted by God," = because God = cannot be tempted by evil, = nor does he tempt anyone.
(Jas 1:14) Instead, = each person = is tempted = by his own desire, = being lured = and = trapped by it.
(Jas 1:15) When that desire = becomes pregnant, = it gives birth to sin; = and when that sin matures, = it gives birth to death.
(Jas 1:16) Do not be deceived, = my dear brothers.
Those that come to Mock… do so, out of their ‘Willful Ignorance.’ Most that post there do so ‘not’ out of seeking ‘Truth’. They simply do so because they have… “Rejected the Truth of the Word of God”. They cannot get to God, so they simply ‘Mock’ those that Believe God and His Word. Many times I see them posting Bible verses out of context. Surely, they in life, would not post an… “Algebraic Quadratic Equation”… to ‘Balance’, their Checking or Banking account.
(1Corinthians 14:40) Let = ‘all’ things = be done = decently = and = in order.
Those that come to ‘Mock’… also have some ‘religion’ that they were exposed to in early life. That adolescent rebellion, that we all seen to have in our teen years… seems to have take root and bore fruit in ‘their’ own lives. Even though they may have adult bodies [over 18]… their mind, will and emotions are still… ‘Child Like.” They cannot produce any ‘cognitive discussions’ but simply use ‘Mocking’ as their only defense to their… “Empty Meaningless Lives!”
*** (Jeremiah 29:13) And you = shall seek Me [God] = and = find Me, = when you = search for Me = with all your heart.
*** (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart = is deceitful = above ‘all’ things, = and = desperately wicked; = who [then] = can know it?
We are born in Sin… and in rebellion against God. That sin was passed down in the human lineage, from Adam & Eve. Many disavow this fact, but perhaps you will allow me to ask some simple questions? Does a child have to be taught to Lie, to Steal or even talk back to his or her… parents? That is a rhetorical question! Of course ‘not’, they do it ‘by nature’ as we all do. Say it isn’t so? IF you have ever had children or visited a home with children, you know this to be true. It goes something like this… “NO, I won’t eat my Spinach, I don’t like Spinach!”
*** (Matthew 15:18-19) But those things = which proceed = out of the mouth = come forth from the heart; = and = they defile the man.
(Matt 15:19) For = out of the heart = proceeds = evil thoughts, = murders, = adulteries, = fornications, = thefts, = false witness, = blasphemies:
Many times ‘Mocking’… comes from ‘willful ignorance’. Before the advent of Cell Phones, one could not readily summon… ‘Emergency Help or the Police’. IF the harmful act took place somewhere there was not a working land line phone… one had to move to a different location, to find one. So too… those that are ‘Not Looking for God’… will not find Him, because they ‘really’ don’t want to find Him. What they fail to realize… is that they are captive to the Blindness that comes from Satan.
*** (2Corinthians 4:3-4) But also = if = our gospel = is hidden, = it is hidden = to those = being lost,
(2Cor 4:4) in whom = the god of this world [Satan] = has blinded = the minds = of the unbelieving ones, = so that = the light = of the glorious gospel of Christ = Who is the image of God = should not = dawn on them.
Those that Mock God… also deny the power that Satan has over them. They simply fall into the same trap Adam & Eve had. They question the ‘Validity’… of the “Power & Complete Authority of God”. Say it isn’t so? Those that have problems with God and His Word, the Bible… also have human “Authority Problems”… with those that are “Boss” over them. We all have ‘someone’ over us, in each and every position that we can experience in life. Say it isn’t so…?
Simply try Flying… and then see all the ‘Hoops’ you must go through! The last time I went to London, UK, I was allowed to carry on, ‘two bags’ when leaving the USA. But in the London Gatwick Airport, I was allowed… “Only ‘One’ Carryon”… through the security checkpoint. Surely I bought some things in the duty free shop, but they were on the departure side of the airport.
*** (Romans 13:1) Let every soul = be subject = to the higher authorities. = For there is = no authority = but of God; = the authorities = that exist = are ordained [permitted] = by God.
Many times in my working career… I was asked to do things that were ‘not’ of my pay grade. In fact they were ‘below’ my pay grade. But I simply complied, as I was ‘not’ the Boss! Too many times, it our ‘Human Pride’, that gets in the way of someone coming to God. They feel that they are ‘good enough’ in their own right, and ‘better’ than most they know. Yet there is ‘not one’ human being that can meet the requirements of God, to get to heaven. It is simply perfection!
*** (Romans 5:8) But God = commends = His love = toward ‘us’ = in that = while we were yet sinners = Christ [Jesus] = died for us.
*** (Titus 3:3-to-7) For we ourselves = also = were once foolish, = disobedient, = deceived, = slaving for various lusts and pleasures, = living in malice and envy, = hateful, = hating one another.
(Tit 3:4) But when = the kindness and love = of God our Savior = toward man = appeared,
(Tit 3:5) Not by works = of righteousness = which we have done, = but according to = His mercy = He saved us, = through the washing of regeneration = and = renewal of the Holy Spirit,
(Tit 3:6) Whom = He [God] = poured out on us = abundantly = through Jesus Christ our Savior,
(Tit 3:7) that = being justified = by His grace, = we should become = ‘heirs’ = according to = the hope of eternal life.
After hearing all this… will you still… “Mock God?” Those that are looking for God will realize that all that we have… comes from Him. Yes, even those things we call good or bad. Those bad things… often help us… change our perspective from us, back to God. But the many ‘Mockers’, who are blinded by Satan, go on their way, thinking ‘themselves’, to be greater that God. If they would simply be ‘honest’… they would soon realize that they have ‘never’ been honest.
*** (Psalms 14:1) To the Chief Musician. A Psalm [song] of David. = The fool = has said in his heart, = There is no God! = They acted corruptly; = they have done abominable works, = there is ‘none’ = who does good.
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us = hear = the conclusion = of the whole matter. = Fear God, = and = keep His commandments. = For this is = the whole duty of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God = shall bring = every work = into judgment, = with every secret thing, = whether it is ‘good’, = or = whether ‘evil’.
Mockers are to themselves ‘god’ [small-g]…! They will not have ‘anyone’ tell them what to do, where to go, who to be with and ‘Especially’… “What NOT to Do!” God has provided a Savior, in the ‘Finished Work of Redemption’… by Christ Jesus. Many will reject this and cover themselves with their… ‘Religion’. That in itself is… “Mocking God!” Religion never saved anyone, it is simply mans’ puny attempt to make himself right with God, which can “Never Be!”
If mankind need… a ‘religion’ or a ‘non-religion’… there would be no need for God and for the Savior of all Mankind… “Christ Jesus!” But he does need a Savior, Rejected by Many, Accepted by Few. Say it isn’t So…? How many do you know, that ‘read & obey’… their Bibles? Most substitute their Bibles, with what is ‘falsely called’… “God Talk!” They are platonic sayings, that do not hold to the Truth of Scripture… but sound really good, to the… ‘Spiritually Blind’.
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) Not ‘everyone’ = who says to Me [Jesus], = Lord! = Lord! = shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, = but = he who does = the will [Word] = of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me = in that day, = Lord! = Lord! = Did we ‘not’ = prophesy in Your Name, = and = through Your Name = throw out demons, = and = through Your Name = “DO” = many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then = I [Jesus] = will say to ‘them’ = I never = knew you! = Depart from Me, = those = working lawlessness!
*** (Romans 10:3-4) For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.
(Rom 10:4) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness for everyone who believes.
Perhaps, if you can be “Honest”…? You will re-examine what you believe about God…? But there are… ‘So Very Many’… that cannot even be honest, in the everyday things of life! If you are reading this and do not know God, it is my prayer and the Will of God… that you come to Him, on His terms. Can you be ‘honest’ at least once in your life…? Simply tell God, the best way you know how, that you don’t believe Him or His Word, the Bible. Tell Him that you are going to ‘honestly examine’, His claims in His Word…! IF you will Truly Mean this… You will Find… God!
*** (Romans 10:9-to-13) Because = if = you confess = the Lord Jesus, = and = believe = in your heart = that God = has raised Him = from the dead, = you = shall be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For = with the heart = one believes = unto righteousness, = and = with the mouth = one confesses = unto salvation.
(Rom 10:11) For the Scripture says, = "Everyone = believing on Him = shall not be put to shame."
(Rom 10:12) For there is no difference = both of Jew and of Gentile, = for the same Lord = over all = is rich to all = who call on Him.
(Rom 10:13) For everyone, = "whoever shall call = on the name of the Lord = will be saved."
(Psalms 119:18) Open my eyes, = so that I = may behold = wonderful things = out of = Your Law [Word].
