YOU MUST FIRST BE FOOLISH, IN ORDER TO BE TRULY WISE
Brothers and Sisters,do not forget that even though we live in this world,we are NOT of this world.
Let us live our lives as pilgrims, unconcerned about all the things that keep the people of the world so busy; trying to keep up with celebrity gossip, trying to copy the lifestyles and fashions of worldly celebrities.
Do not be partakers in the culture of nudity being promoted by satan to defy the Lord God.
Do not be partakers in the lusts of sin, pornography and sexual immorality, worldly parties and seeking satisfaction from all those empty things.
You will not get true satisfaction from movies and music that glorify everything God hates and make a godless life seem appealing.
Do not hold on to a world that is already crumbling and coming under the wrath and judgement of a holy God.
If you follow after all these things,you will fit in with the world and seem wise but in God’s eyes you would be foolish because the wisdom of the world is foolishness in God’s eyes.
For what shall it profit you to enjoy all the pleasures of sin,then lose your soul in hell where the worm doesn’t die and the fire isn’t quenched?
Once you are there,any pleasure you ever enjoyed on earth will seem like a far fetched dream,like it never ever happened.You will feel as though you have never ever laughed,you will forget how it feels to be happy.
The bible says that the wicked will be turned into hell,and all the nation’s that forget God (Psalms 9:17).
Do not forget the Lord your God just because the things of the world seem so glittery and inviting.
They are passing away really quickly!
If you were to see the the sinful things that were so tempting to people who lived in the 1800s,you would think they were crazy for losing eternal life for those things.
Because now they have passed away,and lost their value!
Now they would seem so distasteful to our generation.
But to them they were a great temptation.
In the same way, the things that are a great temptation to people in our generation will also pass away and lose value.
The world is passing away,but God’s word is eternal because God is eternal and doesn’t change.
Do not lose your salvation for this crumbling world.
If you want to be truly wise,invest your time in godliness, serving the Lord, living for Him and labouring in His vineyard.
You will look foolish to the world.
You will fail to fit in with them because you are completely different, and they will persecute you for that to get you back in sin but if you hold on to your faith and peservere until the end,you will receive the crown of life and receive your heavenly reward of eternal life.
But those who are wise to the things of this world and sell their heavenly birthright for the fleeting pleasures of drinking, partying, worldly entertainment,porn and sexual immorality, worldly fashion of dressing half naked,all those who forget God and live a lawless life will receive death as the only reward for the empty things they were chasing.
1 Corinthians 3:18-19
“Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;
