Hardened By the Deceitfulness of Sin
by David J. Stewart
"But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." —Hebrews 3:13
What is the deceitfulness of sin? It means that the longer sin is tolerated or committed, the more normal and acceptable it becomes. People become hardened. This is what has happened to America.
Abortion has been tolerated and committed for so long by Americans, that it is no longer an issue even in our churches. Our hearts have become hardened in America concerning the woeful evils of abortion. Now even the body parts are being sold for profit. Few, and I mean very few, pastors preach against the murder of abortion anymore. Abortion has become as much a part of the American way of life as dining out or going to a ballgame. Surely God's judgment will come upon us as a nation for such wickedness!
Whereas the Word of God SENSITIZES the reader to the awfulness of sin; the T.V. has DESENSITIZED American society to the point that sin no longer seems sinful. Romans 7:13, “Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that SIN BY THE COMMANDMENT MIGHT BECOME EXCEEDINGLY SINFUL.” It is tragic what is happening to the United States. There is no evil any more hideous than all the smut, violence, and sexually-suggestive filth on television. Instead of SEARCHING THE SCRIPTURES as Jesus commanded in John 5:39; Americans are SATURATED with the SITCOMS! We have become hardened as a nation by the deceitfulness of sin! Sin is no longer “exceedingly sinful” in men's eyes, as it really is in God's eyes.
In fact, unsaved heathens have even taken the Biblical term “wicked” and redefined it to mean something good; often expressed today as “wicked cool” or just “wicked!” Do you think this happened by mere coincidence? Not on your life my friend! This is Satan at work, I assure you. Some evil person decided that if they called good evil, and evil good, that eventually young people would grow up not knowing the difference between the two (and it has worked). American children today are as confused as ever about morality. They are taught in government schools that gay is ok; but then they hear from one preacher that homosexuality is a sin; but then they hear from another preacher that gay is ok, and the minister is married to another man; so what are kids to believe? When Bill Clinton was U.S. President, he said that even leading theologians cannot agree as to whether abortion is ok or not, so he refused to take sides.
Of course, if you believe that the Bible is God's holy Word then there is no controversy. The Bible is still very clear on all these issues. Idolatry is a sin (Exodus 20:1-3). Bowing to statues is a sin (Exodus 20:4-6). Taking God's name in vain is a sin (Exodus 20:7). There is no Sabbath Day anymore (it was ceremonial law for the Old Testament Jews; Exodus 20:8-12; Colossians 2:14-16). Not honoring thy father and mother is a sin (Exodus 20:12). Abortion is murder (Exodus 20:13). Adultery is sin (Exodus 20:14). Stealing in a sin (Exodus 20:15). Bearing false witness is a sin (Exodus 20:16). Coveting thy neighbor's house or wife is a sin (Exodus 20:17).
Woe unto America! Hollywood not only breaks everything one of God's Commandments; but they also flaunt their rebellion in God's face. There's not a Hollywood movie produced today that doesn't take God's name in vain. It has become the insignia of HollyWEIRD. Holywood movies are saturated with violence, adultery, covetousness, homosexuality, lewdness, and every sin imaginable. God hates Hollywood movies because they hurt people. Hollywood by far, next to the mainstream newsmedia, has the biggest influence on the American public (and they know it!). Hollywood movies today are infested with the feminist agenda; the homosexual agenda; government brainwashing in support or torture, oppression, and a one-world government). You might as well open the top of your head and pour misinformation and evil thoughts into your brain, because that's all television does nowadays. It ought to be called HELLIVISION!!!
Americans have become HARDENED by the deceitfulness of sin. The longer that sin is allowed to reign in our nation, the further we suffer the loss of our liberties and freedoms. Those who will not be controlled by God will be ruled by tyrants! A Police State is upon us, because America has abandoned God in our prosperity! We have forgotten the God of the Bible Who made our nation great, and blessed us with freedom. God gave us the freedom which many have only dreamed of having. Yet we squander our blessings and freedoms, mocking and blaming God (like the spoiled, smutty, she-devil, brat, SHAKIRA; who calls God a villainous freak Who enjoys hurting people in His high and lofty mansion in the sky). read SHAKIRA'S allegations against God for yourself in her vile song, HOW DO YOU DO? SHAKIRA is an ingrate!
Americans have become HARDENED to the evils of feminism, deceived by the Communists who created feminism as a vehicle by which to INDOCTRINATE women to kill their babies, break their marriage vows, and destroy their families! The Bible says that Satan comes only to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10). And so it is in America today!
Have you been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN? Does sin not seem evil and exceedingly wrong to you? Many people live in sin and don't feel like they're doing anything wrong. They've dwelt in the land of Sodom for so long that they don't see Judgment Day coming. Be not deceived my friend, because we must all give account before God. Jesus said in Matthew 12:36 that men will give account on Judgment Day for even the words they speak.
The Bible butchering companies have perverted the Bible so much that they don't even hesitate anymore to corrupt God's Word. The latest corrupt Bible version to hit the store shelves (already a top seller) is the New International Version 2011. By removing the word “men” in 2195 places (in comparison to the King James Bible), and by removing the word “man” in 2549 places, the NIV 2011 translators have misrepresented God's Word. The true Word of God is not gender-inclusive and does not fit man's sinful agendas. As Americans become more wicked and perverse, so does the demand for a Bible that is equality-conscious, gender-inclusive, homosexual-friendly, and a bunch of horse-dung!
Have you been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN, to where the unproven theories of Evolution are now taught as factual science. This is so evil. Anyone who dares suggest that 911 was an inside job is immediately ridiculed by the mainstream newsmedia as a “conspiracy theorist”; yet the greatest conspiracy of all-time is taught every day in government schools all across America... EVOLUTION. The evolution of mankind is a malicious conspiracy against God. Man did not evolve. The earliest recorded civilizations do not go back further than 4,000 B.C., just as the Bible teaches. It is only be the hardness of one's heart that anyone can be deceived enough to truly buy into the bogus claims of evolutionists. Do you really believe National Geographic magazine; that the moon broke off from the earth after being struck by a catastrophic asteroid, and now we have a rounded moon, and somehow the earth healed itself? That's their official story, and they're sticking to it like a bunch of unbelieving heathens.
Have you been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN? I could mention a thousand different topics where we have strayed from God in America. Each succeeding generation becomes increasingly Godless, immoral, and hateful against Christianity. This is evidence of the hardness of people's hearts. It is incomprehensible that we actually have a major city in America nicknamed, “SIN CITY”! That is the official title given by the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce to their city. In Salem, Massachusetts, their official title is, “THE WITCH CITY”! Why should God bless America! Why not call Washington D.C., the hellhole city; or title Hollywood, the city of homosexuals and whores! I guess it's just too self-evident.
Not only does Las Vegas commit abominations in the eyes of God; but they invite tourists from around the world to come to Las Vegas to commit abominations with them; and then they boast to the world that What HAPPENS in Vegas STAYS in Vegas! May I confidently say, What HAPPENS in Vegas is RECORDED in Heaven (Revelation 20:12)!!! We are living in filthy days. Walt Disney is training a generations of whores and whoremongers; teaching teen boys to “score,” and teen girls to pile on the makeup and wear high-heels like prostitutes at age 12. There is no teaching of courtship nor marriage. Katy Perry, Shakira, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Christian Aguilera, and other sleazy female influences on teen girls today are a curse on America. The Jonas Brothers' music contains Satanic backward masking to corrupt teens and mock the stupidity of a public who believes the official spin. Ignorant parents let their kids listen to The Jonas' Brothers because they claim to be morally-minded; but they are simply a different shade of evil intended to reach a different shade of apostates. Whatever your sinful tastes desire, Satan has a demonic flavor of evil for you.
Have you been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN? So many idiotic parents see no harm in Harry Potter's witchcraft. Harry Potter uses actual names of devils, and contains actually spells used by Wiccan witches. Parents who see no evil in Harry Potter are solid evidence that they've been HARDENED by the deceitfulness of sin. We've become so accustomed to witchcraft in society that we no longer have any qualms about letting our kids idolize witches and warlocks. Why not idolize good preachers? Parents automatically assume that all preachers are greedy crooks; but at the same time assume that all witches are good and sincere in their works. Why don't you just admit that your wicked heart is not right with God? Why don't you just wake up and admit that your heart is as hard as a rock against the truth of God's Word? Harry Potter is straight out of the pits of HELL! It is evil.
The entire purpose of Harry Potter is to DESENSITIZE children and teens to witchcraft, the occult, and the coming Luciferian religion of the New World Order (i.e., a false religion rooted in ambiguous feelings and experiences; instead of the absolute PROMISES OF GOD in God's Word). Have you been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN?
I guarantee that if you turn off the television and search the Scriptures instead, for just one month, that you will once again be SENSITIZED to the awfulness of sin and the evil that is all around us in society today. Most people who read my website ministry laugh and mock God because they have been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN? If you laugh at my ministry, then you need to either get saved or get right with God. Sin is not a joke. False doctrine is not a joke. Nothing is insignificant to God.
There is one common character trait of neo-evangelical churchgoers that I have noticed... they take everything lightly. It doesn't matter which Bible they use. Doctrine isn't worth fighting over to them. They don't make an issue of abortion nor homosexuality. They claim that all that matters is Christ, nothing else. The problem is that all hellbound Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science followers, and Catholics would agree with that. Bible-believing Christians need to rise up and counter people like former President George W. Bush, who said that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. NO WE DON'T! The God of Christianity has a Son, Jesus. The god of Muslims, Allah, has no son according the hellish Quran. Allah is a fraud! If Christians don't speak up, then we are no better than Peter who denied Christ repeatedly.
Have you been HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN? You ought to get upset over false doctrine. If you don't, it's only because you don't love the truth as you should. You should get upset over abortion, witchcraft, and homosexuality; but you won't if you are not walking close to Jesus Christ in your life. You cannot draw near to God and not hate sin, the false way, tyranny, theft, corruption, whorish Hollywood, apostasy, and all that is unholy and wicked. Professed believers who remain silent about sin and evil are not walking with God, because of you did you'd have a fire burning in your heart.
Jeremiah 20:9, “Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.”
The Rapture of the Saints
Only 8 people survived the flood. Noah preached the righteousness of Jesus Christ for 120-years prior to the flood, but not one person repented. NOT ONE!!! Jesus foretold in Matthew 24:37-38 that the Last Days would be as it was in the days of Noah before the flood, when wicked people only live to eat, drink, marry, and party. We live in perilous times. People are NOT listening to God.
