Triangle of Compromise

My people are in a triangle of compromise.

First:  they cannot totally commit themselves to Me, the author and finisher of their lives. I know how the enemy comes to bombard day and night, and I see how My children allow him space to do so. Why can the enemy win this battle more times than not? Because those who claim to be mine have not totally settled that issue in their hearts. I have commanded My Children to love unconditionally. I have spoken to My Children and said LOVE is their foundation and if they cannot Love, they have no foundation. My Children come to me with excuses why they cannot love.

What is My Commandment?

Mark 12:30 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”.

Matthew 22:39-40 (MSG)
39 But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ 40 These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.”

Second: They say one thing with their lips and in their hearts is a different word. My children have not yet learned the word (truth). My children still lean on half-truths that gets them nowhere now or ever. People watch and listen to see what fruit comes forth. It is the half-truths that cause My people to go astray, never winning the lost to the cross. You are either mine or you are not. There is absolutely no middle ground.

Matthew 12:30 (MSG) “This is war, and there is no neutral ground. If you’re not on my side, you’re the enemy; if you’re not helping, you’re making things worse.

So often as human beings, we want to do what I call “play in the gray.” Rather than seeing issues as black or white, right or wrong, good or evil, we often say, “Well, it’s not all that cut and dried. It’s not really a black or white issue; it’s really more a gray issue.” Jesus does not allow us to “play in the gray” about his identity or our commitment to him. If we are not for him, we are against him. Being lukewarm, undecided, noncommittal, is simply another way of opposing Jesus. So let’s begin today to daily live with unabashed dedication in our service to the Lord Jesus Christ!

Third: My people still have not walked the path of Holiness and righteousness. When they minister to the world, the world does not see My Son Jesus, they see compromise. My word tells you: Be ye Holy as I am Holy.

1 Peter 1:15-16 (NKJV) 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

But I do not see Holiness and Righteousness ruling and reigning in My houses of worship. Why is this? The enemy has My people believing they can walk in the grey area and still make Heaven their home. But there is no truth in that statement. It is either Light or it is Dark, no Grey anyplace.

Ephesians 4:24 (NKJV) and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
