The false refusal to repent

.
Mat 15:8  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
.
It may seem to be natural but most persons tend to take an ostrich approach when confronted  with their own real  need to deal with the much to many personal sins, unacceptable negatives values in their own life but nevertheless it does lead to one facing some very serious personally negative consequences next anyway
.
Many even professing Christian persons are falsely  still  relying on isolated verses out of thousands to support their imaginary eternal forgiveness,  salvation,  to the false exclusions of the rest  of the Bible.
,
Merely Believing waht the Bible says still is not salvation,; There is a serious realy big difference: between a mere 1) mental assents to Jesus being the Son of God, the sole provision for the forgiveness of all of man’s sins vs. 2) to believe all that he Jesus also commands us all and advises us to do— ie. to realy obey Him. Even the demons now do  believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and they tremble; and that is not eneough, for  we must not believe in Him, Jesus Christ , but we all must daily believe and do continually all what He tells us to do till the end.;
.
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22
◦Now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed. Rom 13:11
◦Continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Phil 2:12
◦But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. 1 Thes 5:8
◦For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved the cross is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18.
◦Godly sorrow produces repentance that leads to salvation. 2 Cor 7:10
◦Do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption. Eph 4:30
◦For we are the sweet aroma of Christ unto God, to those who are being saved. 2 Cor 2:15
◦We are made partakers of Christ, if we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end. Heb 3:14
◦For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise. Heb 10:36
◦We desire that every one of you show the same diligence in realizing the full assurance of hope to the end.
So that you are not slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Heb 6:11-12;
Sadly still for most persons There is no fear of God before their eyes. Rom 3:1
Indeed, to them you are like a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument,for they hear your words but they do not do [obey] them. Eze 33:32
.
Jesus had said to first seek the  the Kingdom of God and His righteousness;
1 Sam 15:22  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.  23  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
.
To believe is to obey; if you are not obedient, your belief is only the hypocrites’ lip service. Obedience leads to receiving the Holy Spirit — Obedience leads to righteousness — Obedience leads to salvation.;
.
Jesus said: all who sin [practice lawlessness] will be gathered out of His Kingdom and cast into the fire, where there will be great wailing and gnashing of teeth. Mat 13:41-42
Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?
But the person who hears and does not put my words into practice, is like a man who built a house upon the earth without a foundation;.. and the ruin of that house was great. Luke 6:46-49;
.
To personally have God Son Jesus Christ dwelling in you is to also possess the Son and Father in your heart in a sufficient measure that he is your true Lord directing your thoughts, words and deeds, thus becoming become free from all wrong doings, sin.;
For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil. 1 John 3:8;
 .
Unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Luke 13:3,5
.
And that repentance and release from bondage of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.;Luke 24:47
.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and how to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;….that he might redeem us from all iniquity [lawless deeds, sin], and purify for himself a people who are his very own, zealous for good works. Tit 2:11-14.;
.
Personal Repentance is an onward, daily event.But sadly too often inward cross of self-denial has been forgotten, dismissed, ignored, and treated with contempt; yet Jesus told us repeatedly that no one can be his disciple, or is worthy of him, without carrying their cross and following him.;
.
All Scripture is Given by Inspiration of GOD, and is Profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness:  That the man of GOD may be Perfect, Thoroughly Furnished unto All Good Works.~2 Timothy 3:16-17~♥~
 .
Too many of Today’s ministers have eyes full of adultery, [love of money, not God], who cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls; they have exercised their hearts in covetous practices, they are cursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness… For whom black darkness is reserved. For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. While they promise them freedom, they themselves are servants of corruption; for by whatever a man is overcome, he is enslaved. 2 Peter 2:12-19.;
.

Like the Pharisees, too many of today’s ministers shut the kingdom of heaven against men; for they neither go in themselves, nor do they allow those who are entering to go in. Mat 23:13
Like the Pharisees, too many of today’s ministers like to walk about in long robes and love to be greeted [with honor] in places where people congregate and love the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at feasts.

.
Like the Pharisees, too many today’s ministers outwardly seem to people to be just and upright but inside they are full of pretense and lawlessness and iniquity [sin], and grasping self-indulgence. They feed themselves while fleecing the sheep; and they are greedy dogs who can never have enough; they are shepherds who cannot understand; they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 
.
Micah 3:5  Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him. Micah 3:6  Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them. Micah 3:7  Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners…confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God. Micah 3:8  But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin. Micah 3:9  Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. Micah 3:10  They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity. Micah 3:11  The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us. Micah 3:12  Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest. Micah 4:1  But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. Micah 4:2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Micah 4:3  And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. Micah 4:4  But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. Micah 4:5  For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever..
.
1 John 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
.
Jer 15:18  Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, and as waters that fail? 19  Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. 20  And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brazen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD.
.
Gal 2:19  For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. Gal 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Gal 2:21  I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. Gal 3:1  O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? Gal 3:2  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Gal 3:3  Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Gal 3:4  Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. Gal 3:5  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Gal 3:6  Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

.
Mat 7:24  Therefore whosoever  25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: :27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. —
