Bite: Isaiah 43:18

Right before God tells his people he was going to do a NEW thing. He instructed them to Forget the former and not to dwell on the past.

God can’t take us to a NEW place,person or thing if we dwell on the past place, person or thing.

What does it mean to dwell? To live!!

Don’t live in the former. Move to the NEW!

When you make a move in life. Somethings have to be boxed up and thrown out. You normally don’t pack something you will no longer use and bring to the new home.

So purge the OLD things in your life. Make room because God is going to do a NEW thing.

You cant hide nothing from Jesus! 

The Bite

Luke 12:1-3 MSG

By this time the crowd, unwieldy and stepping on each other’s toes, numbered into the thousands. But Jesus’ primary concern was his disciples. He said to them, “Watch yourselves carefully so you don’t get contaminated with Pharisee yeast, Pharisee phoniness. You can’t keep your true self hidden forever; before long you’ll be exposed. You can’t hide behind a religious mask forever; sooner or later the mask will slip and your true face will be known. You can’t whisper one thing in private and preach the opposite in public; the day’s coming when those whispers will be repeated all over town.

  • Jesus was teaching in a packed out concert typesetting. There was no social distancing here. 
  • His concern was for his disciples. He warned them to Watch themselves carefully so that they would not be contaminated with Pharisee yeast and phoniness. 
  • You can't hide... your true self because you will one day be exposed. 
  • You can’t hide behind your religious mask forever..the mask will slip and your true face will be shown
  • You can't whisper one thing in private and preach the opposite in public because one day your whispers will be repeated all over town.

Jesus warned his disciples ….the followers of Christ...this bite is a reminder to us followers of Christ to watch yourself (thoughts, conversations, what's going in your ear) on this evil day. Stay guarded..those with large influence..search the Scripture for yourself!!

The Digest

 

You can't hide from God he knows ALL! with your mask on or off. 

  • Who is your true self ?
  • Will Christ agree with you ?
  • If you allowed your spiritual mask to slip right now who would Jesus see?
  • What is he hearing in your whispering moments?
  • If those same whispers become loud shouts from the rooftops, what would be said of you?

 

The Chew: Reveal your True Self and True Face to Christ.

Inspired by Jada &Will Red Table Talk

If you are married, you can not be entangled with someone who is not your spouse

You don't get seperated  to help or heal someone who is not your spouse. You're no man's savior.

Then Sin Entangles 

You get so wrapped up and cant get untangled until your mess gets out.

Let's talk Holy Scriptures

 

  • The Purpose of Marriage = ONE

 

This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.  Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.

Genesis 2:24-25

5 But Jesus told them, “He wrote this command for you because of the hardness of your hearts. 6 But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female. 7 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother  8 and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

Mark 10:5-8

 

  • The Basis of Separation=Reconciliation/Healing/Repentance

 

To those who are already married my command, or rather, the Lord’s command, is that the wife should not leave her husband. But if she is separated from him she should either remain unattached or else be reconciled to her husband. A husband is not, in similar circumstances, to divorce his wife. 

1 Corinthians 7:10-11phillips

If anyone is ill he should send for the Church elders. They should pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Lord’s name. Believing prayer will save the sick man; the Lord will restore him and any sins that he has committed will be forgiven. You should get into the habit of admitting your sins to each other, and praying for each other, so that if sickness comes to you, you may be healed

James 5:14-16

 

  • Entanglements (Adultery) 

 

 

Exodus 20:14 MSG

No Adultery.

David/Bathsheba 2 Sam 11

We see/We take

3 So David sent someone to inquire about her, and he said, “Isn’t this Bathsheba, daughter of Eliam and wife of Uriah the Hethite?” 

David sent messengers to get her, and when she came to him, he slept with her

So David sends Uriah home from the frontline to try to get him to slept with his wife to pin the baby on him but Uriah didn't go home 

We Coverup

16 When Joab was besieging the city, he put Uriah in the place where he knew the best enemy soldiers were. 17 Then the men of the city came out and attacked Joab, and some of the men from David’s soldiers fell in battle; Uriah the Hethite also died.

We get over quickly

26 When Uriah’s wife heard that her husband, Uriah, had died, she mourned for him.[e] 27 When the time of mourning ended, David had her brought to his house. She became his wife and bore him a son. However, the Lord considered what David had done to be evil.

Don't Judge Jada

Cast the first stone 

The religion scholars and Pharisees led in a woman who had been caught in an act of adultery. They stood her in plain sight of everyone and said, “Teacher, this woman was caught red-handed in the act of adultery. Moses, in the Law, gives orders to stone such persons. What do you say?” They were trying to trap him into saying something incriminating so they could bring charges against him.

6-8 Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger in the dirt. They kept at him, badgering him. He straightened up and said, “The sinless one among you, go first: Throw the stone.” Bending down again, he wrote some more in the dirt.

9-10 Hearing that, they walked away, one after another, beginning with the oldest. The woman was left alone. Jesus stood up and spoke to her. “Woman, where are they? Does no one condemn you?”

11 “No one, Master.”

“Neither do I,” said Jesus. “Go on your way. From now on, don’t sin.”

Digest 

Where do you need to reconcile first to Christ and then to others? Marriage?

What entangles you?

If you are in a hard marriage seek out your spiritual leaders to help come alongside you for reconciliation stay unattached from relationship of the opposite sex. Don't put yourself in situations where you see and then want to take 

Where have you had to cover up sin ?

Do you move on quickly after you have sinned against the Lord forgetting to repent?

Remember we have no right to judge when we all are deserving to be stoned right now but by the grace of God we can be free

Chew 

From now on don’t sin
