The Mixed Linen of Star Wars

This is an old article but the lesson can apply to a Christian’s celebration of X Mass and Easter. It is not a small thing nor is it a matter of Christian liberty but, rather, a matter of obedience. Please take God seriously!

Back before I was saved, I decided I was going to read the Bible from start to finish. My husband at the time had a Bible, but he hadn’t read much of it. I picked it up one day and started at Genesis. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, half way through Numbers. I was done. I didn’t understand any of it and I thought it was a stupid book. There were things in Leviticus, in particular, that set me off. I didn’t know why they called it Leviticus, but I thought they should have named it Ridiculous. It all seemed downright silly to me. Why would God care if the people wore one kind of fabric with another kind of fabric? In Leviticus 19:19, it says, “You shall not let your livestock breed with another kind. You shall not sow your field with mixed seed. Nor shall a garment of mixed linen and wool come upon you.”

Years ago, I didn’t understand. Today, it makes complete sense. In this law, God was telling His people that they were to be set apart from the surrounding pagan nations. God is holy; He is pure. It was God’s desire that His people understand His holiness and purity. Therefore, in all that the people would do, the LORD would have them be reminded of His holiness and purity. From their livestock, to their fields, to their clothing, God was continually reminding them not to mix the holy with the unholy, the pure with the impure. As a people, they were not to mix with the surrounding pagan nations and in their lives before a holy God, they were to remember God’s holiness in all that they did.

GIVE PEOPLE TIME TO CHANGE (In Case You Missed It)…

A very good reminder:
FTA:Be patient when you share the word of God, or give spiritual advice to others…

Think about the fact that when Jesus was in His human form, his biological brothers (Mary’s other sons) did not believe in Him…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

Sometimes we can get frustrated when we share God’s truth or fresh revelation and people don’t respond the way we had hoped.

They may respond negatively…

They may even tell you that they don’t want to hear it…

They may tell you that you’re confused…

They may tell you that they just aren’t ready to change…

Once you plant a seed, you can’t force it to grow…We plant and water, but God gives the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:6-8 (NKJV)

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

We must remember…we didn’t always immediate agree with everything we heard concerning God the first time.

We didn’t immediately take heed to every bit of good, sound spiritual advice we received.

We didn’t immediately stop sinful practices when someone warned us.

There were…

Giving Up the Christ Mass

1 Peter 2:4-5New King James Version (NKJV)

The Chosen Stone and His Chosen People

Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

New King James Version (NKJV)Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson. Used by permission. All rights reserved.

The Christ Mass, aka, Christmas, is not spiritually of God  and is to be utterly avoided by His chosen as our sacrifice acceptable to Him. So, also, all of our pagan traditions of which things He hates should be shunned. Be holy as He is holy, that is, be set apart from the world and be for Him a witness to the only true God and Father of Christ Jesus.

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
