SPEW YOU



SPEW; to send or cast forth with vigor or violence or in great quantity.

Some of the statements Jesus made really get my attention. This is one of those scriptures. Revelation 3:16 So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.

In the verse he was speaking to the church members of the Laodicean church. In His address to them He says they are Luke-warm and He was going to dump them. He then tells them of their problems and gives them a chance to straighten up and live as they should.

The seven churches of Asia are specifically addressed in Revelation and the message to them should caution all churches as to doctrine and conduct. He closes the third chapter with these words; Revelation 3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

What the Spirit has said to the church is to place the highest value on your relationship with Jesus and let nothing diminish it.

There is a full spectrum of Christians, some are so gung-ho they can get on your nerves if you are the easy going type, but there is another group that only when pressed do they admit they believe in GOD. These people want to live life as worldly as they can in case there is no GOD but still hang on to their belief just in case there is.

This is the way the Laodiceans were; a kind of safety net profession. They wanted what they considered the best of both worlds that would allow them be non-committed, committed Christians.

Any departure from the Word of GOD in conduct is unbelief. GOD and his Word are one. He is what HE says. His words are a revelation of HIS person. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

We live in what is called the “Dispensation of Grace,” (favor not based on merit) but the Laodiceans found that “Grace” didn’t mean you could walk as mere men.

The apostle Paul addresses the Corinthian Christians concerning their conduct; 1 Corinthians 3:3 for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. You are jealous of one another and quarrel with each other. Doesn't that prove you are controlled by your sinful nature? Aren't you living like people of the world?

If they had any question of what was right or wrong Paul straightens them out and then it was up to them to do right.

I could say more but if I did it might sound like preaching and I don’t want to do that.

Avoid “Spew You Out” at all costs!
