A reprobate generation.

Posted by appolus on April 17, 2022

Act 18:6  And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles. 

God will not always strive with men. I think we forget that in the days in which we live. Paul testified to the Jewish people in Corinth and they “opposed him and blasphemed.’ At this point he confronted them and told them clearly “your blood be upon your own heads, I am clean.” Let us observe two things from Acts 18. First Paul was “compelled,’ by the Spirit to share the Gospel with the Jewish population in Corinth. And after he was obedient to that calling, and the message was not only rejected but was rejected with blasphemy, the sharing was over. We are not called to promote blasphemy in men. Men have free will and have a perfect right to reject God. Then, Jesus Himself appears to Paul and tells him not to be silent. He was to preach the Gospel to those who would have ears to hear, the gentiles, and not to worry what the Jewish people would do to him. And what was the antidote to the obvious fear Paul must have had? “For I am with you.’ The presence of God gives us the courage to share the gospel where we are led to share.

The key thing, brothers and sisters is this. In the sharing of the Gospel we must walk in the presence of God and be led by His Spirit. We must know when to speak and who to speak to. We are certainly not called to continue to cast our pearls before swine and have God blasphemed. This may be the greatest challenge to the saints of our generation. We live in a day an age of unabashed wickedness. I would argue that we are living in a Romans chapter one age. What do I mean by that? There is a time when God can give a man up to his own “vile affections.” These two words in the Greek mean “infamous disgraceful passions.” I would further argue that we are living in such a time when a whole generation around the world have been given over to a reprobate mind. This word reprobate in verse 28 of Romans means ” worthless, castaway, rejected.’ As with Paul, we must be led by the Spirit of God in everything we do and say, and not say, if this indeed is the direction of the Holy Spirit.

The marvelous thing about being led by the Spirit is the direction, oftentimes precise direction. God may well have you share with someone who appears to be the vilest of all, yet God alone knows the hearts of men which is why we must be able to say “He is with me.” We must be able to hear His still small voice. We must believe that the steps of a righteous man are ordered of God. Speak to one man, “shake you garments,” over another man, God knows. Mat 10:14  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. That dust shall be as a witness to those who despise the Gospel and blaspheme it. The time is short brothers and sisters, with His presence and His direction, use the time that we have left wisely. The good news is for those who know they are sick, “They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Mark 2:17) Those who are righteous in their own eyes and have no need for a Saviour, shall not find the Lord.

    You aren’t kidding. We live in an entire nation and among a generation that is full of reprobate swines. All this as of late surrounding the Disney scandal, it’s not just Disney. It’s the general American public that doesn’t seem to care at all.

    I shared with my neighbor who has 2 grandchildren some information about all of this, some news articles and a few links to a few well done short videos that people put together exposing the pornographic filth that they have been putting into their movies throughout the years, because she told me she was not aware of the scandal surrounding Disney. To my shock and horror, this was her reply to me:

    I’d still watch them and I’d still let my grandkids watch them I think you can find evil in everything but like songs on the radio when we were growing up we didn’t know what they meant we just like the tune we didn’t understand a lot of it and I’m sure kids are the same way unless it’s pointed out I don’t think they would notice it either that is like Dr. Seuss books they’re saying they’re racist maybe to some people they are maybe to some people they’re just a silly book the kids love to hear the rhymes but after watching that video I’d still watch it after all there are some things that Disney brings to a child and knowing the original history it’s based on dreams and excitement in fact if you used to watch Saturday morning cartoons most cartoons and movies are geared to adults they’re not really geared to children they just make the laugh.

    When I received that message back from her I was in absolute shock. I was horrified. I could hardly believe what I read from her. My heart was so crushed by her response, all I could do was cry and cry and pray. This is a grown woman in her 50’s. This is no doubt in my mind, how probably the vast majority of Americans really think and feel, I am convinced of it. They don’t care. Just disgusting the depraved, grossly immoral society we live in today. Full of filthy swines. I can’t hardly bear living here in this world anymore. My heart is just sorrowful and sick constantly, and no matter how hard you try, you can’t get away from it. It’s everywhere at every corner. My soul is in almost constant torment. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

    And because iniquity will abound, the love of many shall wax cold. We are there.

      So sad Lisa. When you add wholesale abortion to the perverting of the children, we see a society in willful ignorant free-fall. Imagine having so little disregard for her grandchildren, it is hard to comprehend. I watched a German documentary about people who were children in in the 30s in Germany. One man said that his teacher had more influence over him than his parents as he was taught Nazi ideology in school. When ideology is taught in schools, one can be sure that there is a generation being prepared for a slaughter, whether actual or spiritual. The God of justice shall prevail, what a fearful thing to fall into the hands of Living God………………..bro Frank
