Discover the age old falsehood responsible for the ruin of millions since the dawn of creation. Are you being deceived? What is the LIE of the Ages? Find out in this revolutionary new book.


“THE EVIL SHALL NOT OVERTAKE
NOR PREVENT US”!!! Amos 9:10

Evil Attitude Among Those Who Claim to Know Christ

    “All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.” Amos 9:10

Note here in this very important verse that the LORD points out an inner attitude among His very own people (of all generations) that has and is leading to their undoing and ultimately the eternal damnation of many. Should we hearken to this warning and learn from history? It is incumbent upon us that we understand and carefully and conscientiously heed this warning before it is too late.

The covenant Jews of Amos’ day said in their hearts that “The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.” This reveals the insolent attitude possessed by these backslidden Jews. In their hearts they imagined “The evil we are now committing is not going to prevent us from the blessings of God, including eternal life.” These people, like many today, were self-deceived into thinking they would not receive a just recompense for their sinfulness. Their whole attitude is one of lightness toward the things of God and a crass disdaining of His holiness and command to be holy.

    “All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.” Amos 9:10

Of this Amos 9 text, the Life in the Spirit Study Bible denotes:

    “9:1-10 I SAW THE LORD. In this fifth vision, Amos saw the LORD beside the altar in His sanctuary, ready to destroy all the worshipers by bringing the sanctuary down upon their heads. Those who escaped would be killed by the sword; all the sinners among the people would die (v10). Likewise, when Christ returns, He will severely judge all within His churches who are living a sinful lifestyle; none of them will escape God’s wrath.”

Let’s look close at what the LORD is saying to us individually here in Amos 9:10. Please mark this verse in your Bible and make it a matter of personal study and focus. The Almighty identifies here an attitude among many who claim to know Him and He hates it. The first thing the LORD identifies is the “sinners” among His own “people” (not the lost) whom He guarantees will “die by the sword” which means to be eternally judged if they don’t repent. Why? Because they “say (in their hearts)” that “The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.” In other words they vainly imagine in their darkened, deceived hearts that the sin of worldliness they are living in will not “prevent” them from going to God’s holy Heaven because they have been made to believe that they are eternally secure – no matter what they do or do not do. Saints, this is the manifest fruit of this deadly lie of the ages and how it is playing itself out in the hearts and lives of men who have been poisoned by this arsenic satanic seed of the serpent.

Isn’t this the same darkened hearted attitude we see from God’s apostate people throughout the history of Israel? 

    “For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD. They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:” Jeremiah 5:11-12

Were we not warned that we shall not escape the judgment of God if we “neglect” to obey His Word of salvation?

    “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation.” Hebrews 2:3

The most insidious aspect of this whole deadly deception that is transpiring in our midst is that smiling, comforting men who in many cases are very sincere (yet sincerely deceived), are teaching this lethal lie utilizing selected and out of context Scripture texts to communicate it and make it palatable (acceptable). This they do in the face of Scripture like 1 Peter 4:17-18, which reveals that only a few of those made righteous will escape eternal judgment.

    “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 1 Peter 4:17-18

Who is the Almighty going to judge? He is starting at “the house of God” and promises that “the righteous scarcely be saved.”

These who teach and those who buy into the lie of lasciviousness vainly imagine that there will be no judgment to come upon them for their sins. Though some live in sin, they fully believe that they are “eternally secure.” But what does the LORD say?

    “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10

According to 2 Thessalonians 1, the two classes of people to be “punished with everlasting destruction” are:

  • “Them that know not God” and
  • Those “that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ”

“MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD”

    “Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return? Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return (repent). I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle. Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD. How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?” Jeremiah 8:4-9

Concerning this text (in Jeremiah 8:7), Donald Stamps, in the Life In the Spirit Study Bible, writes:

    “MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD.’ The people were ignorant of God’s law. Moreover, their leaders so distorted the Word of God and falsified its message that the people were assured they could sin without condemnation (v.8). In a similar manner, the apostle Peter speaks of those who twist the word of God to their own destruction and to the destruction of others (cf. 2 Pet. 3:16). We must beware of any ministers who teach that those who willfully continue in sin and rebellion against God will still inherit salvation and the kingdom of God (see 1 Cor. 6:9-10).”

As was the case in the garden, the occasion the devil chose to first issue forth this “ye shall not surely die” lie, was in the sanctuary of God. So it is today – right in our midst! Beloved, Be discerning! Beware! Be biblical!

This is the same deadly falsehood that has echoed through the corridors of history and is alive and well in our day, propagated by those claiming to be the representatives of the Son of God, who never hinted nor taught such a doctrine.

To equate this Lie of the Ages, sin-justifying heresy to the grace and Gospel of Jesus Christ is nothing less than blasphemous! The historical account of Jesus Christ reveals in crystal clear language that He came to take away sin and save His people from not in their sin. Any person who believes they are saved and yet is living in sin, is under the judgment of the Almighty. Any person teaching that one who was once saved is always going to be saved no matter what, is teaching a false gospel and “deceiving the hearts of the simple.” (Rom. 16:17-18) Beware!

If Jesus Christ came to die and take away about sins, how is it that we justify living in them?

Creating a god in their own image, some vainly imagine that the LORD in not going to judge them for living in sin and that He somehow understands their sins. Perhaps the world of sin-justifying psychology has corrupted their minds.

While speaking about obeying and abiding in Him, Christ stated:

    “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.” John 15:22

There is no excuse for living in sin after Christ shed His blood to be the propitiation for our sins.

The Lie of the Ages is embodied in the notion or idea that man can live in disobedience to his Maker and still remain in His grace. We must deny emotions and sediments and lock into and wholly embrace God’s written revelation of Himself. If not, we will be at risk of being separated from His presence as the first man and woman and millions upon millions throughout history have been.

Biblical version of salvation is one of initial faith to be justified and to continue in that faith, accessing His grace while abiding in Him and His teachings. 

PRAYER: LORD Almighty, You told us in Your Word that You are going to judge Your own people and that those who justify sinning will be eternally doomed. In any way my thinking has been contaminated by the lie that justifies sin, please forgive and cleanse me Jesus. LORD please purify my heart, thoughts, actions and life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and Your truth. I love You Holy Father a
