Conviction

It is interesting to note people who are under conviction (of sin), and how they conduct themselves.

The first thing they don’t understand is that they are under conviction, and that’s what’s bothering them.

Mark it down, one of the jobs of the Holy Spirit is to convict the world of sin, and He does a first class job of it.

From the dumbest to the highest educated among us the reaction is the same, they all want to fight back.

They don’t know how or what to fight, so they use what tools they have, which allows them to pass time, but does nothing to free them from their guilt.

Their guilt will sometimes change to hate, they hate everything. They hate religion; especially the demands Almighty GOD requires of them.

Their hate knows no bounds; they have enough of it for everything and everybody.

They will try everything to get rid of this thorn in the flesh. They will use drugs and alcohol to get relief; promiscuity is worth a try.

Their puffed up sense of superiority won’t allow them to humble themselves before GOD, and allow Him to supply their need, so they look elsewhere!

As to the creation, they deify their science teachers, and bow before their wisdom that declares evolution is the truth.

Still after they have given their allegiance to science, the thorn still remains. The conviction remains unscathed to continue being faithful its task.

This intangible force pursues the sinful person, night and day, even though being continually rejected.

All men wish they could rid themselves of whatever it is that is bothering them, but the answer still escapes them, for they refuse to accept the only remedy available to them.

They must have a change of mind before they can have a change of heart.

This is why GOD has said; preach the word! Be instant in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

As the word goes forth and is received conviction is lifted for the job is done, the guilt is gone, the old is gone the new is here.

JOHN 5:24 He who hears my word and believes in Him who sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgement, but has passed from death into life.
