1 Corinthians 14:33
“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,“
A state of mind. Most of our confusion can be found to be man made.
Unfortunately, this is the state, we seem to be living in.
Up is down, down is up, wrong is right, right is wrong, man is woman, and woman is man.
Confusion, we often cause it. In small inocent ways.
Sven notices his neighbor has a sign in his yard-
“Boat for Sale.”
“Ole,” he says, “you don’t own a boat. All you got is your old tractor and your combine.”
“Yup,” said Ole. “And they’re boat for sale.”
Sometimes, … well… a misunderstanding.
A young couple, bring their newborn into the home. The wife days, “This doesn’t look like our baby…”
The man answered, “Don’t you remember?The baby filled her diaper and you told me to go change the baby.”
Man made confusion. The confusion we are dealing with today, is definitely man made.
It is running rampant in our world today. We have gone over the edge.
Our youth do not know, whether they are boys or girls, men or women?
Feelings today, … are more important than common sense, or ancient wisdom.
What has given us this confusion? It is not from God.
It is happening because, as a society, we have rejected God.
At a college graduation. (A true story), in the mid-west.
The schools tradition, for graduation, was the men wore a blue gown, the women white.
One young girl thought she was a man, and refused to wear the white gown.
What should they do, for this confused young (Woman?)
Common sense would tell her. Our Forefathers would have told her. An adult should have told her.
“You are a woman. Wear the white.”
There would be, no discussion, no counseling, no arguing… Case closed.
Is that what happened? Of course not.
Not in this P.C. world. Afraid that we might scar her tender feelings for life, Confusion now reigns supreme.
Everyone wore blue gowns with a white sash.
Problem solved? Not at all.
No, her confusion has infected the whole school.
There was not a man in sight.
How did we get here?
Leviticus 18:22-24 (KJV)
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:”
Leviticus 20:11-13 (KJV)
“And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
Sexual sin, so prevalent today. Has brought us CONFUSION. In NC, we have the bathroom bill.
Many seem to believe that adult males belong in the showers with young girls.
These people are not just confused, the confusion has caused them to become evil.
From gay rights, (same sex marriage), to multiple partners to man/child sex…. all are ok, to the confused.
Ten Commandments, do not mention same sex relationships. Why?
It was beyond the evil they could imagine. Why would we need to be warned about the unnatural?
In the Bible, confusion is first found in Genisis 11. The building of the tower of Babel.
“The whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. They had brick for stone, and slime had for morter, so they said, let us make brick.
Let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
The Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
The Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
So the Lord scattered them abroad, from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”
He reversed that confusion on the day of Pentecost.
Not that we now, understand each other, but that our Spirit, speaks directly to God.
Our prayers, (in the Spirit), reflect Gods, will and will cause us to do, exceedingly, abundantly above all we ask, think or even image.
Instead of embracing His Holy Spirit to guide, direct and protect us, who will keep us from evil, that it might not grieve us.
The Holy Spirit ‘s is feared, His Gifts for building the Church, rejected, misunderstood.
The Holy Spirit is not allowed to rule and reign in our mortal bodies. Sad, confusion.
In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
We sinned sexual sin, it has brought us confusion, soon to follow, destruction.
Lord, please change our hearts, minds and direction, help us to turn towards You. Amen
