“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” -First verse in the Satanic Bible
Isn’t it interesting the mockery and hatred that Satan has for God’s Creation? Since the beginning, he has been deceiving and enticing men to do the opposite of what the Lord commands.
Satan deceived and enticed Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:1-15). He offers the world to those who bow down to him (Matthew 4:9). The devil allures to the love of the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, which Scripture tells us is not of the Father but it is a spirit of antichrist (1 John 2:18).
Obviously, we can see and hear what a majority of Americans have adhered to when it comes to the Church in America and how it is that they are being taught. They are to know the doctrine for themselves (John 7:17).
These hirelings that teach speak evil of the way of truth (2 Peter 2:2). These are clearly enemies of the cross of Christ (Philippians 3:18-19).
Then these, when hearing the unadulterated word of God, which is law to grace, wonder why they have in the congregation those who question the Author. The devil loves this. This is what he teaches: “Hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1) When confronted with the message of repent (Acts 20:21), they then begin to question the origin of the word and its author rather than questioning their walk of faith (2 Corinthians 13:5-7). Many then resort to “the Bible is man made” argument.
Friends, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” (John 3:6), and my Bible teaches in John 21:18 that the Spirit of God takes you whither soever your fleshly desires would not.
“When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.”
Where the Lord gives His “thou shalt nots,” the professing Christians in America look for an excuse to do the opposite and attempt to justify what they just did in contrast to the commands (Romans 7:12). These are devilish minions at work that mock the way of truth, and this most willingly, and deservedly so, the wrath of God abides upon them (John 3:36).
In Jude 4 we find:
“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”
In Galatians 5 we find, “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another… Liberty is to be set free from self to serve the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:17).
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” -Galatians 5:13-21
What we find, as fruit inspectors, as we attempt to prove those whom we labor among (Matthew 7:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:12) is how many adhere to the flesh rather than the spirit. This is carnality, and it’s a carnality that wars against the Lords Spirit. I say to these that it would be better for you to fall upon the Rock then the Rock fall upon you (Matthew 21:44).
Romans 8:7-9 tells us: “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.”
Remember, Jesus said unto his disciples:
“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” -Matthew 16:24-26
In John 3:30 John the Baptist uttered, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
In Galatians 2:20, Paul writes, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
In Galatians 5:24 we find: “And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21
Also, consider when Jesus was going to be delivered up and crucified, Peter, in the flesh, said to Jesus, “Far be it from you.” I ask, how did Jesus respond?
“But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.” -Matthew 16:23
So, in conclusion, Scripture is clear. It teaches us in Colossians 3:5-6 “mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: lest, the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.”
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” -2 Timothy 3:16
If the Bible was inspired by man, it wouldn’t have gone against all man’s desires! The Lord knows what is best. “Thou shalt not” is for our good, and only the One that loves and knows the best could have inspired it to be so (Psalm 19:11).
