Unequally Yoked

 

Today, reply describes divine love, and the response divinity must make to those who deny Jesus Christ. The operations of GOD provide for mankind to become joined to divinity as the new creation of Jesus Christ. Those who acknowledge Jesus as High Priest, redeemer, and savior are to receive atonement and spirit substance from the makeup of GOD that include faith, holiness, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality public forum using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information appears) posted the following:

 

If Jesus loves everyone, then why will He say ‘Depart from me…’?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7: 21-23, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, among Christian believers, the expression and operation of divine love have to be accepted and recognized as coming from a GOD who is the origin of all existence and life, yet is also a GOD of judgment who provides divine law, sacred standards, eternal purpose and values for the continuance of the universe. To love as a mature partner within a relationship with divine fullness (we say, the GODhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) requires more than to simply show affection, respond to earthly desires, or center upon satisfying one another’s needs. Accountability, commitment, and discharging duty should appear along with obedience (putting aside ones self-will to carryout the will of another), and maintaining the genuineness and integrity of ones own personhood.

Mankind is being freely given every benefit, opportunity, and privilege required to live as companions to a GOD who is immortal, incorruptible, and righteous. Included are atonement for sin; endowments of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD (e.g., faith, holiness, impartiality and mercy in judgment, lovingkindness, wisdom, wrath against sin); forbearance; forgiveness; redemption; and salvation. To “walk in the Lord” is to conform to the example and image Jesus Christ has demonstrated for all the sons and daughters of GOD in heaven and on earth. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) Amos 3: 3, King James Version (KJV): 3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

(2.) Deuteronomy 28: 8-10, KJV: 8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.

(3.) Matthew 22: 8-14, KJV: 8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

(4.) Luke 13: 24-30, KJV: 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

(5.) 2nd Timothy 2: 15-19, KJV: 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

(6.) 2nd Corinthians 6: 14-17, KJV: 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (7.) Luke 12: 8-9, KJV: 8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
