Dog Doo and a Piece of Pie

May 1, 2013

 

God gave me this vision and I wanted to share it and expound on what He showed me about it.

 

In this scripture the Lord is contending with the religious leaders who wanted to kill him:

 

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 

John 8:44 is an important scripture to remember because it tells us that the Devil is a liar and a murderer and that there is NO TRUTH in him. 

 

There are many people who are pretenders that pretend to know God and preach His word but they are teaching unrighteous things. 

 

Let's say a friend offered you a piece of pie—your very, very favorite kind of pie. Mmmmm. Picture that delicious piece of pie coming to you on the plate...But WAIT! There on the pie plate with the pie, is a pile of dog doo! No, really?

 

Oh, gross. So, I ask you, would you want to take your fork and dive into that piece of pie? Even if you thought to scrape part of it off the plate it would still smell like dog doo. Ewwww.

 

Get a good picture of that every time somebody offers you anything that is a mixture. It sounds good and looks good but there is yucky dog doo right along with it. 

 

If a preacher teaches something from the Bible but then offers you something that is not of God right along with it, don't eat it!

 

If you see a movie or listen to music or read a book that you feel is not right in God's sight even in one area, throw it out, stop listening, reading or watching. 

 

The world has a saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water." But that can be deceptive. Some people will tell you that you can listen, watch or read and sift or sort out all the bad stuff. Getting what you need. That is not true. Why? Because the devil has NO TRUTH in Him. The Word is pure truth so the word Satan gives you will be twisted, perverted, polluted. 

 

When our Savior was put to the test in the wilderness, the devil used the word of God. Some people think it is ok if it is a little twisted if we toss out the junk.  But that is not the truth. The devil changed the word of God and the Lord told him so, using the true word of God.

 

If we want to walk as the Lord did, we must resist the devil and he will flee.

 

No pie is worth eating if there is dog doo on the plate. Watch for that dog doo in what you see and hear and read and stand strong against compromise. 

 

You may be offered truth on a plate with dog doo but it is unusable truth because of the way it is presented, therefore the whole plate is worthless to you.

 

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
