WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST – the HUGE Sword Naming Names, but with Gentleness! – Week of Swords and Axes Day 3

WOE TO THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THE WICKED AND CONDEMN THE JUST

a.k.a. the HUGE Sword God gave Shereena! Naming Names, but with Gentleness.

Proverbs 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

This makes me want to weep. How much of this do we have going on right now?

What does it mean to justify the wicked?

jus·ti·fy

verb /ˈjəstəˌfī/

  1. Show or prove to be right or reasonable
  • – the person appointed has fully justified our confidence
  1. Be a good reason for
  • – the situation was grave enough to justify further investigation
  1. Declare or make righteous in the sight of God

wick·ed

adjective /ˈwikid/

  1. Evil or morally wrong
  • – a wicked and unscrupulous politician
  1. Intended to or capable of harming someone or something
  • – he should be punished for his wicked driving

When you know the commandments and the word of the Lord, and you tell someone who breaks those commandments and does not keep those words that they are right in what they do, this is an abomination to the Lord.

a·bom·i·na·tion

noun /əˌbäməˈnāSHən/

  1. A thing that causes disgust or hatred
  • – this bill is an abomination to all mankind
  • – concrete abominations masquerading as hotels
  1. A feeling of hatred
  • – their abomination of indulgence

Justifying the wicked is disgusting to God, something He HATES!

Christian Musicians, Artists, and Celebrities that Justify the Wicked

An area where justification of the wicked is extremely prevalent is in Christian music. Christians celebrate ungodly musicians and singers, we even go as far as collaborating and making music with ungodly people. Now, Christian artists and wicked music artists are making music together at an alarming rate, and no one seems to think it is wrong. But, what does God’s word say?

MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES VERY SLOWLY

Isaiah 5:11-24

11Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 12And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.  13Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.  14Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. 15And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: 16But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

17Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat. 18Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: 19That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! 20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 24Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Let’s Take Some More Time to Ponder and Analyze Isaiah 5:11-23

-Strong drink: The mingling of the holy and profane, wine of the world and false wine of the spirit.  (vs. 22)

-Strong men (vs. 22): rich men, mighty in the earth, men with influence, celebrities, men who have a form of godliness.

-They justify the wicked for their own reward (vs. 23): increased influence, money, power, fame, self-promotion.

-Verse 12 specifically addresses music and how it is used in a corrupt way (the harp, tabret, viol). Music is useless unless it glorifies God how He truly is not how we want Him to be. Music without God leads to sin and rebellion if they do not regard the work of God or consider the operation of His hands (vs. 12).

They may regard God with their mouths, but do they regard the work of God which is righteous? No because they are chasing wine early in the morning. Do they consider the work of His hands which is HOLY? No because wine is at their feasts.

We have Christian artists that are mixing strong drink. They put “gospel” songs on raunchy secular mix tapes. They use their influence to promote secular labels, artists and cds. In their eyes they are spreading the message of Christ on a secular mix tape…but if a Christian follower who they market to buys that mix tape, they will hear ONE watered down “gospel” song and TWELVE songs about drugs, sex, and profane living?!

Lecrae puts a song on raunchy secular mixtape by DJ Statik Selekta http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/population-control-bonus-track/id463889619, and promotes a secular Hip Hop event http://missdimplez.com/2012/02/uhsxsw-profile-1-lecrae/

Mali Music signs to Konvict Records with Akon http://allhiphop.com/2011/11/01/akon-signs-gospel-rapper-mali-music-to-konvict-muzik/ (the symbolism in the fact that Akon’s record label is called Konvict, a convict is someone who was convicted and imprisoned for crimes – bondage, and Isaiah 5:13 says “My people are led into captivity…”, is a whole other topic in itself!)

Is this right? WRONG!! This is leading people into spiritual confusion; verse 13 goes on to say “My people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge”…who has taken them captive? Their enemies have taken them captive. How were they led captive?

Strong drink (false doctrine, mixing wine of the world and wine of the Spirit), music and wine without regard for the work of God (His work is His commandments Exodus 32:12)

Psalms 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

The works of God cause His enemies to submit to HIM. But instead the strong drink, music and ungodly feasting cause God’s people to submit to His enemies (the works of darkness). They do not consider the operation of His hands (the way GOD operates: hating sin, loving holiness, righteous judgements, condemnation of wickedness, and pardoning those who repent of sin, not honoring the sin).

-Verse 13 continues on saying …”and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst”. Wait a minute, if they were feasting and drinking wine in verse 12, why are they hungry (famished) and thirsty in verse 13? Because when you do not regard the work of God or consider the way HE operates, you are led into death. Only the works of God and His operations bring LIFE (satisfying hunger and thirst Isaiah 49:10, John 4:13-14, John 6:27-37, Isaiah 65:13, Revelations 7:16)

-Who is making the wine and mingling the strong drink? This is the strong man, the rich man, the powerful man. When the strong man makes the drink, the multitudes will drink it. This is another reason why many Christian artists are sound at first, while they are gaining followers.

Then once they hit a certain status of fame and riches they switch and start mingling strong drink. The strong man makes the wine, because people will drink deceit from a rich and mighty man because of their status and success. So the strong men run to the mixture, because a strong man wants to make money off of the wicked and their influence. Spiritually, the strong men are prostitutes.

-People love to justify working with darkness and mixing ungodly with Godly by saying “well, Jesus ate with sinners and people got mad at Him too.” Jesus preached repentance to them. Jesus rebuked and prophesied to them, Jesus called them OUT of the darkness they were in. These people did NOT join Jesus in ministry. They were NOT part of His inner circle. He did NOT come into agreement with them in business deals.

He did NOT say let me follow you around and introduce me to your circle so I can show people who I am and maybe they will get saved…HE SAID FOLLOW ME!!! HE SAID IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS!!! HE SAID IF YOU DO NO PICK UP YOUR CROSS YOU ARE NOT WORTHY OF ME!! Jesus preached repentance, those who wanted to repent, did it and followed Him. Those who did not repent, Jesus warned his followers to avoid (the rich young ruler, Pharisees, etc.)

When the rich young ruler (Matt. 19:16-24) did not want to GIVE UP his sin and wealth to follow Jesus he turned and went away. Jesus did not follow after him, join in his lifestyle in hopes that one day the rich man would believe, that maybe if I follow him around long enough then He will accept me…Nor did Jesus try to capitalize on the influence or riches of the young man, he was a ruler with great influence and riches. Jesus did NOT try to even use the young man’s status as a way to preach the gospel (which is most Christian’s excuse for mingling).

“Let’s make a deal – you’re rich, I’m Jesus Christ… We can make something happen!”

NO!!! Repent for the kingdom of God is at HAND!

-This will lead you to captivity. Those who justify the wicked, who are entertained with their music and wicked feasts, have no knowledge. Hell is enlarging itself for them.

-It is all a big party! They go down into hell in the midst of their glory, pomp, multitudes and rejoicing (grammys, fans, awards, partying, shopping, etc.) vs. 14.

– Because they desire the reward they receive from justifying the wicked, they try to silence and destroy the just, anyone who stands against them and their sinful system.

– The key issues are justifying the wicked and mixing the wine of the world with the Holy wine of God. And justifying the wicked for personal gain. Either telling them their sin is ok or simply not telling them their sin is wrong and making them feel like their sin is ok for what you stand to gain from it.

 

Isaiah 5

20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

 

-The passing of Whitney Houston is very sad, but we have to be honest. She did not bear the fruits of righteousness. The BIBLE says you know a tree by its fruit. Now that she is deceased we see so many clips of her singing gospel songs, but where are the clips of her high? Where are the movie clips of her doing sex scenes? Why isn’t any media playing clips of her crudely cursing in her movies?

And all the famous Pastors would rather brag about how close they were to her and say she’s in a better place rather than mourn for her, or use the opportunity to introduce the fear of the Lord and obedience to the gospel to her fans. Instead they were her fans themselves, and used their relationship with her and her status to gain reward for themselves!

TD Jakes justifies Whitney Houston and will make much money on the UNGODLY movie  Sparkle, he made with her. He leads his congregation in justifying her.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcs2qrocEvI

*The remake of Sparkle, a movie that TD Jakes (a Christian “Bishop”) produced, was written by Mara Brock Akil and Directed by her husband Salim Akil (the team who writes blasphemy for BET’s The Game.) They are Muslim, so by “coincidence” – The Game is filled with the blasphemy of Jesus, fake Christianity, using God’s name in vain, and the portrayal illicit sex. The music was done by R. Kelly, who made fornication music for an entire generation.

What is the movie about? A group of singing sisters leaving the church to make it big…Hmmm, I think I smell strong drink. How could a Bishop in the church work to produce a film leading millions into deception and captivity believing He was doing it by the leading of the Holy Ghost? Strong Drink!

-Did you know that the Catholic Church is even reintroducing “indulgences?” An indulgence is literally buying a dead soul’s way into heaven. After someone has passed you can pay money  at and say some prayers and at some point the priest would tell you that this person was now in heaven.

 

WHAT?! They were justifying the wicked for a reward, MONEY. The justification of the wicked for reward by the Christian church is the same as selling indulgences: give me your money, give me the status of your fame and I will tell you God accepts you. I will tell you you are sanctified, I will tell you that you are going to heaven, or “in a better place” when you die.

 

Proverbs 24:24

24He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:

Exodus 23:7

7Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Psalm 66 18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

So in the desire for money, fame, fortune, business deals self-promotion and vanity as representatives of God to the world we may justify the wicked and make them think they are ok. But GOD is NOT justifying them, so we ok the sin, but GOD is the true judge.

-Refused to repent when they were rebuked on Twitter for attending a Beyonce Concert. These concerts have been known to resemble demon temple worship, with male prostitute-type dancers simulating sex acts. They despise holiness by calling it a “bubble.” So those who refuse to follow idolatry with them are in a “bubble.” Google it to.

Mary Mary openly confess to enjoying secular music and making music with all the wicked musicians they can partner with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wINyjMs_sw This is the doctrine of Jezebel.

Revelation 2:20  20Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Isaiah 5:12And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.

We usually avoid “naming names” with this type of message… but this is the week of swords and axes!  The Bible says “them that sin, rebuke openly.” These people are openly promoting this stuff. Private sins get private rebukes. Public sins get public correction. We would love for people to repent so we can take their names out of this post. We Pray For These People and we hope that we as the Body of Christ repent and get mercy from God instead of harden our hearts to go further in encouraging  our hearts in wickedness.

Just as we spent our time, energy, and money promoting the gospel with ministers and artists when they serve Jesus and the gospel in holiness – we give correction and protection when they depart from Jesus, the gospel, and holiness. We are doing this because it is our Responsibility.

John 10:12 (The true shepherd does not leave sheep when they see the wolf coming). The wolf is ravaging the body of Christ right now.

This is the Week of Swords and Axes here at SoSpression blog. Why? God is fighting with big swords, pruning His people with small swords, and taking Axes to the poison filled roots of every wicked tree in His Kingdom.

So put #wosaa and #killingidols and #ifeargod on your facebook and twitter; with a link to www.sospression.com. If you have a friend who likes truth, tell them to follow @esosa on twitter or on www.sospression.com
