When i first put this article up on the internet via http://ccngh.net/site/index.php/ccnblog/item/782-only-what-he-wants????, it had 13,403 hits. It is my hope that you will only be blessed by what God is saying to you through this article.

In this age of massive individualism and a glorification of self and horrific carnality,we can see there are many Christians who have come to think the liberty they have obtained in Christ Jesus qualifies them to adopting a negative volition towards divine doctrine, and to doing whatever they like, blatantly and actively involving themselves in whatever appeals to their senses. Some even go as far as using their God-given talents to engage in activities that glorify satan( whether directly or indirectly doesn’t matter).

For instance, I know a young man who ministers in songs in one of the well known singing groups in Ghana, who at the moment plays drums for a leading hip-life singer in the city of Accra. Just three months ago, this group launched another album, and this guy was there. Meanwhile the Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:21 that we can’t eat of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.

I like us now to look at this closely.Let’s take a look at Samson!

First of all, this was a man who broke all the rules. The relationships he formed destroyed him. The Bible warns: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers” (2 Corinthians 6:14). You can’t keep a lion and a goat in the same den. Why? Because their natures are different! One s bound to feed on the other. When God says “no” to certain things He’s not being difficult, He’s being protective and we as children ought to heed Him!

Samson lived by his impulses. He thought he was in love when he was only in heat, burning with unacceptable passion. When confronted about his relationship choices he replied, “She pleaseth me well” (Jud 14:3). Before it was over he became a laughingstock. Peter writes: “Abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul” (1Pe 2:11). In war the strongest side wins, so keep your impulses in check. You can’t do all the things you feel for. There must be a constant check of our feelings, desires and emotions.

He misused his gift. Samson exploited his God-given strength for personal gain. Similarly, many folks that call themselves Christians get involved in Satan-glorifying activities, using the gifts and talents they have from God, all for filthy gain. Don’t’ forget the Bible says the belly for meats and meats for the belly, but the Lord shall destroy both it and them(1 cor 6:13). Listen to these words spoken to his Philistine buddies, concerning a bet he’d made with them: Consider this verse..”Then shall ye give me” (Jud 14:13). God gives us gifts to fulfill His purposes, not ours. When we misuse them we end up in trouble.

Samson was blind to his weaknesses. You may not like to believe that your private imperfections will have public consequences, but you can’t escape what you are. If Satan attacked Jesus three times in the wilderness, he’s not going to give you a free pass! Protect yourself! Satan always attacks those who are in line for God’s blessing.

Why does God make such a big deal of this? Because sin hurts us, and anything that hurts one of His children makes Him angry. But remember it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of God’s wrath. You may not fully understand what the wrath of God is like, or what nature it’s going to take after the world ends. But you can visit http://www.spiritlessons.com; and perhaps you could grasp a glimpse of this reality. i bet you don’t wanna be involved in any of that, SO LET HIM THAT THINKS HE STANDETH TAKE HEED LEST HE FALLS(1 cor 10:12)

God be with your spirit, In Jesus’ Mighty Name!
