Beware Of The "Mixed Multitude" In Churches by Nobody: 8:30am On Jun 03, 2018
Matt 15:13-14 “And he replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father did not plant will be uprooted.”

 The scriptures describes the exodus of the Jews from Egypt in Ex 12:38 KJV “And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.” The word ‘mixed’ is the Hebrew word `ereb’ which means Arabia or the mongrel race.

God had no covenant with them and their influence on the Israelites marred their journey to the promise land. They were predominantly idol worshippers and Israel soon got caught up in the act. 
The same scenario played out on the day of Pentecost in Acts 1:6 the Apostle Peter described the crowd that were gathered as ‘Men’ and ‘Brethren’.

The church has persons with a personal agenda. There are those who profess Christ openly but aren’t committed to Him in anyway (Matt15:cool.
They have a self-centered agenda. Jesus describes these persons in Matt 13:25-40 as ‘tares.’

The tare is a crop that looks much like wheat and competes with it for nutrients. 'Tares' are Satan's agents in disguise with the mission to steal our Joy. There is as much risk of being defrauded in a business or marriage relationship in the church as much as it is in the world, therefore , caution should be taken in our dealings.

'Tares' operate in two ways, first they dilute the gospel by compromising the truth with secular ideologies thus removing  its life-changing power and secondly they pollute the church with an alien culture  that makes the church appear harmful.

 Jesus showed us how to identify these persons . They are allergic to truth and easily take offense when confronted with the righteous gospel. Jesus did not apologize for hurting their feelings like most many preachers seeking fame do today.

Making the gospel sound appealing will not change ‘tares’. They hate truth, the scriptures says in John 3:20-21 “They hated the heavenly Light because they wanted to sin in the darkness.

They stayed away from that Light for fear their sins would be exposed and they would be punished. But those doing right come gladly to the Light to let everyone see that they are doing what God wants them to." therefore , no teacher of truth should take offense as a result of the backlash from disenchanted parishioners :it is normal.

The Word of God teaches that in the last days, men shall lose interest in sound doctrine of the scriptures.. False brethren seek for congregations that promote falsehood were the conscience will be silenced, the scriptures say in  2 Tim 4:3-4 “For there is going to come a time when people won't listen to the truth but will go around looking for teachers who will tell them just what they want to hear.

They won't listen to what the Bible says but will  follow their own misguided ideas.”
Jesus kept on teaching those hard-to- hear teachings in a bid to expose these false brethren. In Galatians 5:19-21 Apostle Paul repeatedly spoke on the characteristics of false brethren.

False preachers dread reading Galatians 5:19-21 to their congregation for fear of being exposed.Paul recommends the regular reading of this scripture as a means of ensuring the security of the brethren against impostors.    
Marriage to a Christian is no guarantee for a peaceful home because ‘tares’ often disguise themselves as disciples. Only a relentless teaching of the truth of the gospel can protect one against false suitors.

Showing kindness in place of teaching only makes  matters worse ,Isa 26:10 NKJV says “Let grace be shown to the wicked, Yet he will not learn righteousness; In the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly,  And will not behold the majesty of the Lord.”

You think God is not watching him? Or you don't believe that there is God? God rewards us according to our deeds so leave judgment for God.

Like those preachers whose main focus is on prosperity. They forget that one can get the wealth today and die tomorrow. The kingdom of God should be our focus.

Yes, as a Christian filled with the Holy Spirit and moreover a shepherd of God's flock. Haba! You would be insensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

The book of Galatians 5:21 stated
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 5:21 KJV

Means avoid been drunk or been a drunkard.
Too much of everything is bad.
And not taking of alcohol can be a personal decision.

What goes into a man does not defile a man but what comes out of the spirit.

If after drinking juice or yoghurt or water, you start having impous thoughts and speak vain words you are as guilty as a man who took alcohol and started spewing thrash or displaying untoward expressions.

It's this utterances or expressions or thoughts or actions/inactions that come out of ones spirit that defileth the man.

We are spirits inhabiting a body.
Since we can't control what happens after taking alcohol, its usually and doctrinally advisable to stay away.

Excessive consumption of alcohol (imutipara) is the sin.
Just as excessive consumption of anything is a sin. Too much food, sleep, water, talk, are all paths to sinning. Even too much fasting (harming your body), the temple is a sin because that body is not yours.

For clearer and sound judgment, it's healthy to stay away from alcohol.
And because a young convert who sees a devout taking alcohol may assume it's okay to take alcohol whereas the young convert is a suckling spiritually who may actually backslide from indulgence just bcoz he saw a deacon/elder/priest taking such...for such a reason it's ultimately preached to kuku stay away from taking any alcohol so you don't lead another man to sin or fall back to their vomit.

A lot of things are human religion that has nothing to do with righteousness but we include them cozvwe think they might help us in living a heaven-conscious life.

A believer who doesn't have empathy or a believer that keeps malice but don't take alcohol is worse off. A believer who doesn't drink nor fornicate but has pride is a worse candidate than an alcoholic.

That's why the theory of relativity is the greatest concept yet...Jesus Christ always apply relativity by using Parables to drive home very important messages. All our righteousness are like filthy rags because human righteousness is relative. Only the Trinity is Holy!

Galatians 5.21(Drunkenness)... Imutipara!

Grace Alone.
