Mend the Bond Torn By Pride

Fate be changed. Look inside. But, our light is turning to Darkness. And we do not see. Blind leading the blind. Into the Ditch/Pit. Judgement is reserved. The Light shines on our Wicked deeds aWhile Longer. Have we Acknowledged our Rabid/Ruthless/Remorseless judgement of Others? Pride. Have we Wept/Mourned/Bowed our Heads? Pride. Have we Gone/Called/Written those LO’s whom we No Longer Love? Pride. Bonds established by God. And Broken by Pride/pastor/poisonous Lies.

Pastor’s poisonous Pulpit Pride. Obvious. Nauseating. Unsettling. Embarrassing. Days are short. Night approaches. Repent O people of God. Turn you at his Reproof. Acknowledge your Pride/fullness/Lies. Mourn. Humble yourselves and Do Right. That you may escape. Damnation.

But God says, “We have heard of the pride of Moab; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so” (Isaiah 16:6). “We have heard the pride of Moab, (he is exceeding proud) his loftiness, and his arrogancy, and his pride, and the haughtiness of his heart” (Jeremiah 48:29). “Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment” (Psalm 73:6). “Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness” (Mark 7:22).

Pride Goes Before a Fall

But God says, “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence” (1 Corinthians 1:25-29). “Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you” (1 Corinthians 4:13-14). “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians 5:7-8).
