Biblical wisdom laid out in plain English by Elect Lady Owens
No one likes abandonment! Especially when it’s life changing! There are all kinds of abandonments that occur in life, i.e. child abandonment, parent abandonment, spouse abandonment, property abandonment, etc. But, the ultimate abandonment is to abandon Christ and His Word! When we compromise the Word of God by collaborating with our flesh and the world’s system, we have abandoned Christ.
Abandon is defined as: “to cease support or to look after (someone); forsake; desert; to leave (a place or vehicle) empty or uninhabited, without intending to return.” Therefore, to abandon something is to discontinue something you once started. There are old ways that we once abandoned when we got born again and set free, but we should never abandon the new life that Christ gave us in return. How can we do this?
2 Timothy 3:1-2 warns us: “This know also, that in the last days (or end times) perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous (lovers of money), boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents (natural & spiritual), unthankful, unholy…” These are signs that point towards abandonment to Christ. 2 Timothy 4:3 says: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Be careful when what was once truth to you has changed and now you live by myths or what appeals to your flesh. You are now collaborating with the end times! Collaborate means to: “work jointly on an activity, especially to produce or create something; to cooperate traitorously with an enemy. When you collaborate with the end times you become a traitor to Christ and a friend to His enemy, Satan. Galatians 5:7 says: “Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
Just because you started well does not mean you will finish well. You can be deceived when you abandon the truth and look to the world for guidance and pleasure. Apostle Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:10: “For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed (or abandoned) …” You are a traitor when you betray the trust of Christ like a Judas. 2 Timothy 3:4 gives other signs of end times: “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;”
It seems politics have dominated the minds of many Christians above the Word of God. They are no longer led by the Word of God but collaborating with their political party. No matter what your party preference is; Christ should never be abandoned or negotiated to justify your plans. Sin must still be called sin, and right must remain right. We don’t get into heaven based on whether our good deeds outweigh our bad deeds. You must be born again, not just confess you believe in Jesus, but also keep His commandments.
Yes, it is wrong to abort a baby before they are born, but it’s also wrong to kill them after they are born because you won’t feed and support the poor. Homosexuality is a sin but adultery, fornication and racism is also sin. It’s good to talk good Christian principles but it’s wrong to slander your neighbor with perverse words. You cannot write books to justify or massage a non-believer’s actions. The Book, the Word of God has already been written for us to follow.
Prayer should be made for all mankind and not just your political preference. Bribery should not be a part of our constitution when we’re walking in the Light; neither should flattery blind us so we stumble in darkness abandoning our true purpose. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 says: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” So, be strong! Fight the good fight of faith! Don’t abandon Christ by collaborating with the End Time deceptions!
