The Cancer of Sin (Why Do Christians Suffer?)

The Cancer of Sin (Why Do Christians Suffer?)

We all at one time or another have seen many types of cancer, the cancer of the flesh and the cancer of the spirit. Cancer is a silent killer, resting in the body until one day it shows itself and by that time the body is already consumed, with no hope and no cure, death is inevitabile. Even thou God allows cancer of the flesh to exist, cancer of the spirit can be destroyed. What is cancer of the spirit? Sin.

Why do Christian Suffer? Because we have chosen a path that the world rejects. Many hikers will choose a path to walk, sometimes its the easy way and sometimes its the hard climb. Christians suffer because the path that we’ve chosen is hard and trecherious.1Co 4:11-15 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;

And labor, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. “Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace” you say, “This isn’t me!” yes it is, if one Christian sufferers this day and age, we all suffer.

“we are made as the filth of the world” strong language from the Apostle Paul, but true. Sin has overcome the world. And when the world looks for a person to blame for all its troubles they look at the Christian first. Government, Federal, State, Local, we have become a hated people because we stand up for the truth, we rock the boat and we call evil as it is. Many today that are caught up in their own little world are calling, Good – evil and evil – Good, because they are so miserable with their own lives they want everyone else to be just as miserable.

“are buffeted”Struck; beaten. l Cor.4.11. l Pet.2.20., “being persecutedHarassed by troubles or punishments unjustly inflicted, particularly for religious opinions., we suffer it”- We sustain it; we do not revenge it; we abstain from resenting or resisting it. “Being defamed Slandered; dishonored or injured by evil reports., we intreat”,”being reviledReproached; treated with opprobrious or contemptuous language., we bless”,”We are the offscouringThat which is scoured off; hence, refuse; rejected matter; that which is vile or despised. Lam 3. 1 Cor 4. of all things”.

Rom 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. As the cancer of sin grows, those that have been warned to be cured are rebuilding Babylon, the bars, nightclubs, homosexual parades, the total Eco-system of non conformity toward Gods word. Instead of looking for the cure, mankind is trying to spread it to all around. Corruption is cancer, homosexuality is cancer, theft, prostitution, false doctrine, robbery, rape, lies, drunkenness, drug abuse, pride, child abuse, in deference, unbelief, all of these and more are symptoms of a cancer, eating away at the very fabric of mankind.

1. Muslim Mob Attacks Christian Homes in Pakistan.

2. Messianic Jews Harassed in Israel.

3. Vietnamese Authorities Burn Down Christians’ Homes.

4. Thousands of Congo Christians Mourn Murdered Italian Missionary.

5. Palestinian Authority policemen deployed along the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip fired warning shots into the air Saturday in an effort to stop hundreds of Palestinians from crossing the border.

6. The number of storms that reach Category Four and Five–the most powerful, damaging hurricanes–has nearly doubled over the past 35 years, the study finds.

What is causing all the hurricanes and floods? Mans rejection of Gods Word. Sin has caused man to overturn his basic love for God and has replaced it with, lies and deception. Asia, the United States, Africa, North, South, East and West are under the plagues of the Bible, the curse of disrespect and disobedience. Psa 46:2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Psa 46:3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

Jer 25:31-38, A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground. Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel. And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape. A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and an howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD hath spoiled their pasture.

And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the LORD. He hath forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger. Who among you can stand against the Lord or His word and say that The Seas are calm, the Mountains Rest and the People are safe? Who will stand and say this? Who will stand against the Lord and say that His word is corrupt and disallowed of knowledge, who can stand and say we prophecy in someone else’s name? How many today are full of cancer and are yet aware of the fullness of the wrath coming upon them.

Do we believe Gods word? Do we really? We ether believe or we don’t. I heard a story yesterday about a man who climbed a mountain by himself. He only took a rope and a few provisions. Almost at the top he stopped and looked back at what he had accomplished, having pride in himself. All at once he slipped and started to fall, being at night he could not see where he was and thought he was going to die. He screamed out for the Lord to save Him.

All at once he reached the end of the rope, it tightened and stopped his fall. He cried again to God for help. The Lord then spoke and asked him,”Do you Trust in Me?” Yes the man replied. “Then cut the Rope.” But Lord I cant see where I am, its so dark and cold! “If you believe in Me, Cut the Rope!” I cant the man replied. The next morning a search party found the man, frozen to death, only 10 feet from the ground. Sin has overcome the world and man no longer believes God.

Sin has overcome the world and there is a noise of war in the air. Sin will no longer be tolerated, sin will no longer be a cancer to Gods creation. The end times that everyone is waiting for are here. Look at the signs of the times, look at the prophecy’s of God.

Mat 16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? Luk 21:25-26 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Act 2:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
