A Man Pleaser, Or A God Pleaser? Choose.

Luke 6:26, "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets."

These words of Yeshua penetrate deep into the world of religious hypocrisy.  First off, the Greek word for hypocrisy is "hupokrités" or 'actor'.   So many people try and live their lives to please those around them that it is easy to forget there is One who is all knowing, always there, Who knows you well beyond what you can imagine.   However; even knowing this, the reality of His presence never seems to hinder those who should know better into entering a life of 'man pleasing'.  Those Pharisees, and Sadducees, the rulers in religious politics, the back slappers and politicians who desired earthly stature among men more than the true, and humble desire to commune with God in prayer are still with us today.   

Politicians look to compromise.  True men and women of God will never compromise God's Word or His standards.  The false prophets spoken of in the days of Yeshua found the religious elders accepting of them.  They would never think to speak harshly to even someone they knew to be a false prophet because it might stir up problems among the 'brethren'.  We don't look for issues with the religious authorities or big personalities, or any 'elders' in our land;  but when they take a leap away from God's Holy Word into the world of darkness, compromise, degradation and sin we need to do something.  We have to take a stance on whether to accept their Sodom and Gamorah's standards or follow them into the abyss.  We have to choose:

Galatians 1:10, "For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Messiah."

I have to express my thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular incident. After scouting throughout the the web and finding principles which are not powerful, I assumed my life was over. Living without the answers to the difficulties you've fixed by way of your good article is a critical case, as well as the kind that might have adversely affected my career if I had not come across the blog. Your primary ability and kindness in maneuvering every part was valuable. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't come across such a step like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this professional and amazing guide. I will not hesitate to propose the website to anybody who needs to have guide about this situation.

Do you find this challenging to your senses? You should. We all are challenged every day by this truth of our need to trust in Him, Who we cannot see with our naked eyes. When we learn to walk in this realm we will finally understand and rest in the fact that there is this unseen hand guiding our life
