Servants of the Lord,
I can see that the enemy is strengthening opposition to the work we are called to do, and this requires wisdom. Those who oppose Him will, naturally, oppose us, and we need to love them and show them the way if possible.
However, we also need to know when someone has taken a stand as an enemy of God, so that we do not allow them into our councils to distract, attack and ultimately divide.
Those who love God and believe what He says may occasionally fall into sin and need to be pulled out. By doing so, they agree with God – that what they do is sin, and they no longer wish to live in it. They don’t ask God to change the laws to make their sin legal. They don’t campaign to try to force their sinful ways upon all who agree with God’s law until they prevail. There is no love in this type of activity, it is based on hatred for God and His people.
We live in a time we may become objects of ridicule and derision if we speak the truth, and we must be prepared to face this in God’s strength. Truth is truth – Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man comes to the Father but by him.
