|The first recorded incident of shame in the Holy Bible was written in the
book of Genesis...
Shame means......either a consciousness of guilt or dishonour.
God/Yah!......never fails to make a way for the human race to realise that He is
Do we ever sit down and thank God for the warning device called shame?..Most believe today that if shame is induced by the preaching of the word of God,
that preacher is not of God.
We have a gospel that is becoming very popular in the world today and when it is preached,
it brings no guilt or any consciousness of dishonour toward the Holy One/Jesus in the
hearts of those who live contrary to the word of God, whether Christian or non Christian.
It is not a bad thing that churches and ministers alike have those who continually bring
them into check over covetousness, heresies and worldliness. It is the love of God trying
to turn them before it's too late.
JESUS SAID TO THE CHRISTIANS IN THE CHURCH BASED AT
LAODECIA...I COUNSEL YOU!
TO BUY FROM ME GOLD REFINED IN THE FIRE.. THAT YOU MAY BE RICH AND WHITE GARMENTS THAT YOU
MAY BE CLOTHED..THAT THE SHAME OF YOUR NAKEDNESS MAY NOT BE REVEALED AND ANOINT YOUR EYES
WITH EYE SALVE..THAT YOU MAY SEE........REVELATION 3:18.
|Nakedness and blindness are the key words in the previous paragraph.
The Laodecians had no shame! They were not conscious of their attitude toward
God. They were dishonouring Him and they were too blind to see it, for all they could see
was......wealth, $$$, clothes and themselves.
It says....they!...had no want. Jesus counselled them and said.....you are naked.
The unjust have no shame says the Lord.....The Apostate Attitude.
God was once in the midst of these Laodecians, however in the process of time Jesus ended
up at the door and refused to go any further till these particular Christians repented of
their sins and changed their attitude toward Him and gave Him number one place in their
Jesus said that the Laodecians were not just naked and blind but also poor, miserable,
wretched and a shame to His name. We become everything that carnal men and women don't
want to be when we give not Jesus pre-eminence in our lives........
Jesus makes things very clear to us day after day, He washes His hands of every rebel and
every stubborn, proud soul upon the earth. He is righteous, every morning He brings His
justice to light............Amen
