A man’s foes will be they of his own house;
We don’t care how many books you write, Westboro Baptist Church will never permit fornication.
The Holy Spirit said (Micah 7:6) “a man’s enemies are … of his own house.” Christ said it himself (Matt. 10:34-46) “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance (that means a war) against his father, and the daughter against her mother… And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”
Christ says this as a statement of fact – in almost every case where you have father or mother properly believing in Christ they will be contradicted, opposed, and persecuted by their own son or daughter.
Christ says to expect this. You ARE going to be opposed by your closest family members nearly without exception.
If you seek Christ (Mat 7:13-14) you must enter in at the narrow way and the strait gate (it means hard and difficult to pass) because it leads to life and few there be that find it… but wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction (hell), and many go therein.
The New Testament and for that matter the Old Testament, is chuck full of people that started on the way to heaven and then fell away. Paul says (Phil 3:18-19) “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping (these are people Paul and the church new well), that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.
Paul had a good friend named Demas that walked with him for a while and who then left him. (2 Tim 4:10) “For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world.”
Christ said (John 6:65-66) “no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time (from the time Christ spoke those words) many of his disciples (Christ’s disciples) went back, and walked no more with him.”
John, that beloved apostle of Christ said (1 John 2:18-19) “ They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest (clearly shown) that they were not all of us.” And get this “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” Some of your Church members are going to leave, because they are not the elect of God, it is going to happen, but don’t worry, ye that stay ye have an unction from the Holy One and ye know all things.”
It is a non-delegatable duty, or job of the New Testament Church (Rev. 2:2) to test and try them that say they are apostles and are not, and are liars.
As watchers (1 Pet 4:7), we have not missed the fact that the whole world is corrupted with fornication (Rev 19:2) and given themselves over to it right under the noses of nearly every single church without exception.
Fornication is not once to be named among the saints (Eph. 5:3). It is roundly condemned in both the Old and New Testaments. Christ himself preaches against it in Mat. 15:19. Paul says (1 Thes. 4:3) “For this is the will God…that ye should abstain from fornication.” He says (1 Cor. 6:9) “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived a fornicator shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” And Rev. 21:8 Whoremongers (that is, fornicators) shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The Bible commands (1 Cor. 5:1) to exclude unrepentant fornicators so to purge out the old leaven (1 Cor. 5:7), lest it leaven the whole lump. Christ Jesus, from his throne in heaven, condemns the Church at Thyatira (Rev. 2:20-21) for its fornication. There can be no church of God where unrepentant fornication is present.
(Gal. 4:6) Do we become your enemy because we tell you the truth?
We are proud that since its inception, the Westboro Baptist Church has excluded all unrepentant fornicators from its membership. Write all the books you like, slander your Godly father and mother, take up the cause of sodomites and whoremongers, tweet away, take the stage and claim your 15 minutes of fame to bad mouth the servants of God for your fornication.
But beware…when you slander the servants of Christ and the good land (Num. 14:36) you provoke Christ himself (Heb 3:8-19). (Jude 14-16) Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, for their ungodly deeds and their hard speeches for they are murmurers and complainers, walking after their own lusts.”
(Acts 10:34) God is no respecter of persons. (Prov. 11:21) The guilty and the wicked shall not go unpunished.
“The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” 2 Timothy 2:19
