The Curse Of Rebellion
by David J. Stewart | October 2016
Isaiah 3:12, “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.”
Mankind has always had a problem with obedience to God. Since the Garden of Eden, we learn that rebellion has plagued humanity. Notice that our text Scripture does not just pronounce a Biblical curse upon women ruling over men, but women ruling over God's people. It is hazardous for women to rule in any capacity of authority over the land. God has appointed men to make the decisions that govern a family, a church, a city or a country.
But I am not primarily addressing women in this article, because men are just as rebellious as women. The issue is not male verses female. It is easy to become biased in the matter, males defending males, and females defending females. The truth is that all humanity is prone to rebellion against God and proper authority in their life. Children from the earliest age don't like to be controlled. They cry, squirm and through tantrums, just like many adults still do. That is the inherent sin nature of mankind. Rebellion is in our nature as human beings, and it has been a woeful curse since the very beginning of time. The world is in the awful mess it is today because of man's rebellion against God.
The Word of God described mankind as “children of disobedience” and “wrath.” Ephesians 2:2, “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.”
Lucifer rebelled against God, drawing one-third of the angels to follow him in rebellion against God. This began the Luciferian conspiracy, which still continues to this day. The Holy Bible identifies Satan as “the god of this world” (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Rebellion is epidemic in America today. This is why our wicked society looks the other way when wicked Rock and Roll singers sin and commit crimes, while overturning every stone to find some fault with a fundamentalist preacher to condemn and discredit his name and preaching. That is what rebels do—they have it in for godly authority and truth! They have nothing bad to say about the adulterous Country singer, or the whoremongering Rock star, but they never shut up about the imperfections of Bible-preachers. In the eyes of the sinful world, worldly celebrities can do no wrong and fundamentalist Christians can do no right.
I hear foolish people blaspheming God and the Gospel. They are headed straight for the fires of Hell. Jesus said in Luke 24:25b, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.” The Bible calls you a “fool” if you are slow to believe the Holy Bible. We live in a world of fools today. We live in a world of rebels against God and truth. The Bible teaches in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 that the Antichrist will trick the world “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” If you reject the truth of God's Word (i.e., the Gospel), you will be deceived by the New World Order and the coming Antichrist. Even now, as I type, many of our country's independent Baptist churches are filled with unsaved religious people, who teach for doctrines the commandments of men. They have been deceived by a false meaning of repentance that requires changing your life to be saved. This is of the Devil. Anyone who says that you must “turn from sins” or “invite Christ to come in and control your life” to be saved is teaching a false Gospel.
Zionism is the false doctrine that says present-day Israel is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Zionism is rebellion against God's Word, because the Bible says true Israel will be regathered only when Jesus Christ returns and a remnant of Jews are saved. Israel has not returned to God yet. Present-day Israel is man-made, not God-made. The foolish churches that support Zionism are ignorantly supporting the sinister New World Order. I'm talking about Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, who has often called on FoxNews for preemptive bombings of the Arab nations. Such foolish talk promotes World War III, just as Masonic legend Albert Pike predicted before his death in 1891. WWIII was planned as early as the 19th century by Luciferian occultists. Sadly, the list of Zionist heretics includes Jack Chick, William Grady, John Hagee, Cyrus Scofield, Pat Robertson, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell, Ray Comfort, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, John MacArthur, Bill O'Reilly and thousands more. If you don't support Zionism, you will never be accepted nor promoted by the Zionist-controlled media or thousands of organizations which they strongly influence and control. Zionism is of the Devil. Scofield and his Dispensationalism are of the Devil. Just as Abraham and Sarah rebelled against God by taking matters into their own hands, so also do Zionists rebel against God.
Female rebellion is epidemic in the United States today. Women today are sassy, angry, defiant, lazy, empowered by the courts, and bratty. Anytime a woman decides to crucify her husband in court, she can convert their marriage license into a weapon. The courts are often biased and unfair. Oftentimes a Christian husband will be dragged before a feminist lesbian judge, doomed before he ever entered the courtroom. For that very reason, many single and divorced men (young and old alike) refuse to get married. The benefit to risk ratio simply isn't worth it! I cannot blame them one bit. I feel the same way. To no surprise, most of my web visitors are men. Women these days cannot handle the truth. What it is. I do thank and appreciate the ladies, Christian and non-Christian alike, who regularly visit my website with an interest in my opinions.
Rebellion exists in many forms. Not too long ago a professed Christian woman was offended that I mentioned “homosexual perverts” in a public conversation. She said, “I have many friends that are gay, and you're being insensitive to my feelings.” My friend, that is rebellion against God's Word. Why does a professed Christian have friends that are gay? I wouldn't give you a dime for that kind of fake Christianity!!! If the truth of God's Word (or my standing upon the truth of God's Word) offends someone, then it is only because their heart is not right with God. Homosexuals are ungodly perverts and if you're around me in public, I will speak my mind, like it or not. Most professed Christians are cowards. They are not willing to suffer reproach for Christ as 2nd Timothy 3:12 teaches. They don't want to be outside the gate with Jesus. Homosexuality is rebellion against God, as is all sin.
Proverbs 28:4, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.” If you abide in the Scriptures, you will contend with the wicked, not pamper them. The idea that Christians will never reach homosexuals for Christ by rejecting their sin is a lie of the Devil. The truth is that if a homosexual won't receive the Gospel on the basis that their homosexuality is a sin, they cannot be saved. No one was ever saved who didn't admit that they are a sinner in God's sight (Romans 3:19). They don't have to turn from their sins to be saved, but they do have to judge them self as a needy sinner before God. Otherwise, why would they need a Savior? You've got to know what you are being saved from.
