Zombies, Ghosts, Demons, and Saints: #1 Zombies
Zombies, Ghosts, Demons, and Saints #1 Zombies
Hell has a voracious appetite, and lust just never quits.
Men and women don't live very long; like wildflowers, they spring up and blossom, But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly, leaving nothing to show they were here.
Galatians 5:15 (NIV)
If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
GOD will visit them with a terrible plague. People's flesh will rot off their bones while they are walking around; their eyes will rot in their sockets and their tongues in their mouths; people will be dying on their feet! Mass hysteria when that happens—total panic! Fellow soldiers fighting and killing each other—holy terror
Don't be naïve. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They'll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they're animals. Stay clear of these people.
2 Timothy 3:5 (NLT)
They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly.
Zombie Christians have religion, they have the form, they go through the motions. They are near to Godliness, they see it, but they don’t have it. They might even attend church. They might even stand during singing worship times. They might even give some of their money to support the congregation. They might even show up for a workday. But it’s all form, it’s respectable, it’s appreciated, but it lacks Godliness.
Are you experiencing this power of Godliness or is God on the periphery of your life? Is God your second thought, obeying God when convenient, God is only important when you’re in trouble you can’t handle? Here’s a word for you if you feel you might be a Zombie Christian:
Ephesians 5:14 (NIV)
"Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
