DENYING GOD BY WORKS
Tit 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
The bible tells us that we have a group of people who are blatantly following the wicked one by their unfruitful works of darkness but they confess with their lips to know God.
If you truly know the most high God, your works should correspond with what you profess with your lips.
This verse applies to lukewarm Christians who live a double Christian life.
These are fakestars who follow Jesus Christ in the churches but when they are outside of the church premises, they live a life that suits the imagination of their own hearts.
These group of Christians do not walk in the narrow path of salvation; they try to walk on two roads trying to enter the kingdom of God.
God does not take pleasure in people who live a double Christian life. You have to make a conscious decision whether you want to follow Christ or you want to follow the devil.
If you have chosen to follow the devil, condone everything that is evil; while if you have made the decision to follow Christ, condemn all appearances of evil.
The word of God tells us that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
A lukewarm Christian is not committed to serving God; they tend to shift positions to either light or darkness; when difficulties and hardship arise you will find them in darkness; but when there are no persecutions they claim to be partakers in the table of Christ.
The word of God tells us that some people deny God in their works and I have witnessed such people in the church.
I believe that this people who claim to know Jesus and live according to the desires of the flesh will heap to themselves a greater damnation because God detests hypocrites.
I want to give you a couple of examples of people who claim to know God, but deny God by their works.
The world today is filled up with seducers who wear the attire of an harlot.
The word of God tells us to avoid looking at nakedness. This is a very difficult task for the children of God because everywhere you turn nowadays, you see nakedness. There is nakedness in the churches and in the streets.
You will find some women who wear the attire of an harlot coming up with their own doctrine in favour of nudity.
They say that outward appearance does not matter and use their poor reasoning to destroy the earth with sexual immorality.
They claim God looks at the heart but they are not afraid. If you say God looks at the heart why aren’t you afraid? If you are for Christ be for Christ and if you are of the world let people know that you are of the world.
The word of God tells us that anyone who professes the name Christ to depart from iniquity. If you are following God; let God be acknowledged by your manner of dressing.
Other group of people who deny God by their works and all together claim to know God are the lesbians, homosexuals, gamblers, porn addicts, masturbators, smokers and generally all sinners.
If you are sinning, you do not know nor love God. The word of God tells us that God is light and in Him there is no darkness.
If we profess to follow Jesus Christ and we walk in darkness, we are liars and the truth is not in us; but if we walk in light and we do not partake in unfruitful works of darkness; we will have a relationship with God because we will be in the light as He is in the light.
By keeping the commandments and living according to the will of God will our relationship with God be strengthened and we will end up being a peculiar people in the world.
Examine your life and determine whether you are a peculiar person or you are a part of the world. Your words and actions should be distinct from worldly people.
What you profess with your lips should match the way you live your life.
If what you profess with your lips does not conform to how you live your life; you are lying and you are not a genuine Christian.
Obedience and love to the almighty God is shown by how you live your life. Majority of people are known to give lip service to God and live a life that is abominable and full of disobedience.
If you claim to love God, keep the commandments. Lip service does not mean anything to God. If you stand at the great white throne of judgment as a sinner, the Lord Jesus Christ will not spare you.
If you are one of the people who deny God by works, repent and turn back. Live a life that conforms to what you profess with your lips.
