Passion for People – A Godly Jealosy

Warnings, Pleading, Reason, Debate, Contend & Demolishing Arguments

Motive

“I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭11:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Why we should warn people

“Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.”

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:14-15‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Warnings

Should be part of your daily discussions

“So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” – Acts‬ ‭20:31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Empty Words

“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.” – Ephesians‬ ‭5:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Falling Away from God

“It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.” – Hebrews‬ ‭6:4-6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Not to serve other gods

“And though the LORD has sent all his servants the prophets to you again and again, you have not listened or paid any attention. They said, “Turn now, each of you, from your evil ways and your evil practices, and you can stay in the land the LORD gave to you and your ancestors for ever and ever. Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not arouse my anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you.”” – Jeremiah‬ ‭25:4-6‬ ‭Niv

Lying Prophets

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. They keep saying to those who despise me, ‘The LORD says: You will have peace.’ And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say, ‘No harm will come to you.’” – Jeremiah‬ ‭23:16-17‬ ‭Niv

People Pleasing

“Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you, for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.” – Luke‬ ‭6:26‬ ‭NIV‬‬
