Do I Have A Reprobate Mind? (8/5/2016, Message#39)
The Reprobate Mind?
What’s a Reprobate?
Before we explore what a reprobate mind is, may we should look at a Reprobate first. So what is a reprobate? According to the dictionary, it is an unprincipled person, missing a moral compass, sinner who is not of the elect and is predestined to damnation. This is the definition of a reprobate..., so what’s a reprobate mind?!? The Bible (Book of Instruction Before Leaving Earth) says: “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”
A person with a reprobate mind is a person who has rejected Jesus Christ and His saving grace, through the offering of Himself for all sins of humankind. Again the Bible states: “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.” Ask yourself, do you ever say "I Am Just Too B-U-S-Y" when asked to hear the Truth?
Right now is a very good time to ask yourself this very important question? Even the Bible says, "Tomorrow is not Promised."
Face the Facts!!!
The Bible Forewarns "Us!"
What Are the Signs of a Reprobate Mind?
The Bible doesn’t have any nice things to say about a reprobate or a reprobate mind! Is there a way to pick up on the signs of a person with a reprobate mind? First off, a reprobate or a person with a reprobate mind has rejected the Faith, they have rejected the body of doctrines essential to salvation. Second, a reprobate is a person who has gone so far in their rejection and into sin in which he or she is unmoved by the Holy Spirit. A reprobate doesn’t want to be bothered by the Lord God and He in-turn accommodates them by turning them over to their reprobate mind. Thirdly, a reprobate or a person with a reprobate mind is a person who has no hope. They may have a social life, a domestic life, a religious life, and an intellectual life, but they die without hope or redemption.
Lastly, a reprobate has no head, no hunger and no heart for Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), El Shaddai (God Almighty) and His work and Will in their life. A person with a reprobate mind may not necessarily hate the Gospel. They are simply dead to it; they are insensitive and unmoved by it. It is as if their hearts are numbed with Spiritual Novocain. Just imagine how this makes the Lord God of Heaven feel, one of His Babies He created and establish, totally rejects Him as their Heavenly Father? What if one of your very own children did this to you, how would you fell or someone you love so much did this to you?
This is What's Inside the "Reprobate" Mind!?!
A Reprobate Mind and Sin, Is There a Correlation?
The correlation is this, look at the world and take a very good look! What do you see or hear? Violence, Raping, Pillaging, Wars, Killings, Shootings, Mass Beheadings, Riots, Civil Unrest and so many Issues!! Why, How and Who do you think are all behind these? Certainly not Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), Adonai (Lord), El Shaddai (God Almighty), even though He is very much aware of this, He is Love and Peace! Have you guessed it yet? Many people who are behind these and several other heinous acts are reprobates or even people who are even further beyond a reprobate mind. Whoa, now that’s scary, because they think they are doing the Will of the Lord God of Heaven and in all actuality, they are so far from it!?!?
Living a life as a reprobate is not something anyone should have to live, deal with or even be a part of. Yet, there are so many who are unfortunately reprobates in mind, heart and in spirit. Even still since Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) loves them as well, is there any hope for anyone to reach them? Can this even be accomplished?
Sign of a Reprobate Mind?
Take a Faith Test!
Can a Person With a Reprobate Mind Receive Redemption?
Yes they can and no they can’t, let me explain. Once Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), El Shaddai (God Almighty) has given up on you, that is it and when you die, Hell is your next stop. This is a fact and the Bible says so. This is a very scary fact, it is The Truth, and it may hurt but it will still set you free! If the Lord God of Heaven, the Creator of All Things has given up on you and you have become numb to the beckoning of His Holy Spirit to come back to Him. Your fate has been sealed by the Lord God and His power of influence will not work on you.
The one and only chance a reprobate mind may have and I stress, might. Is if by some miracle or outside influence, this person is able to see the light on their own accord or choice. It might be enough for them to realize The Truth in the Lord Jesus Christ! This is a very slim chance, for Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty) has already rejected them and given them over to a reprobate mind. To re-acknowledge Him, it will take some work on their part, you’re going to need to get Father God’s Attention! The Question is Will You? Do you Even Care? How Does This World “Feel” to You, do You Love It or Hate It? There isn’t much hope for a reprobate mind or a reprobate person, the Bible is very clear on this!
The one arena which seems to still grab, influence all kinds of people and their various backgrounds is the Movies and TV Shows. Maybe, just maybe a movie or TV show will cause a reprobate to wake up and see the light. The greatest example which has and is still touching so many people lives, including the reprobates is "The Passion of the Christ" movie. Many feel this movie was too graphic, sadly it still pales in comparison to the real or actual Crucifixion of "Our" Lord Jesus Christ! This movie is to date, the closest representation of the actual historical event so far and this is why people, like the reprobates are waking up to the "Love" of Jesus Christ and Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) for them!!
Even Evil Has a Purpose!?!?
When Is Too Late, Too Late?
There is a point where someone can become unredeemable, a point where Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty) deems someone eternally, hopelessly lost forever! How can this be or even become possible? Because they have rejected God’s Son, Jesus Christ, God in the Flesh and "Our" Father has stamped them eternally "unapproved", "worthless" and "rejected." Okay, but who reaches this point? A person who has rejected Jesus Christ and His Saving Grace, through the offering of Himself for the Sins of All Humanity and has been rejected by Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), Adonai (Lord), El Shaddai (God Almighty)!!
Like I mentioned in one of my earlier HubPages, if we reject Jesus Christ in this life, when it ends or we die, Father God must reject us. I think this is mention within Pulling People Out of the Fire! I just remembered, the Lord God has led me to write so many now, I am having a tough time keeping up with all of them. In any case, "Our" Father God in Heaven is Good, He helped me to remember!! "If this is stirring up something inside you, it’s no too late and you may not actually be a reprobate!" This is Why Humanity Needs Jesus!!!
Give Him Glory, Praise, Honor and Your Worship in Jesus Name!!
Can a Reprobate Be Saved?
If Father God Has a Purpose For You...
If Father God Be For You, Not Even You Can Keep Him Away!!
If you are called by Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), Adonai (Lord), El Shaddai (God Almighty) to do a work for Him or are called to be of Service by Him. If you reject Him or started to be of service to Him and then turned away. There is no place you could hide from Father God and at everyplace you go or went, He would bring a reminder of the service you did for Him. In a sense, Father God would just wear you down or put you in a situation to where you would have to turn back to Him. This is actually a good thing! How so? Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) strongly feels your abilities and talents are exactly what He needs to reach the people He is trying to meet through you!
Okay but why me? Father God feels there is no other way to bless you and them at the same time. You being used by Father God to do a service for Him and the people you reach, becoming part of His Kingdom through their acknowledgment of the Lord Jesus Christ through your service, talents and abilities. Don’t turn or run away from the Lord Jesus, run to Him and let Him Bless you and be your provision!
Even a reprobate mind who woke up and realized they need the Lord Jesus Christ could help reach other reprobate minds to come to know the true understanding of the Lord Jesus for them and others.
See "Our" Father God in Heaven is a Good God and He truly does "Love" all of His Creation, You, Me and Every Single Person on this Planet! The Life, Story and the Facts of the Life of the Lord Jesus Christ is undeniable proof of the Lord God in Heaven's Love for Humanity, that means "You," being a regular person, reprobate or not! Everyone needs to be loved, for this is why Humanity was created! This is Why Humanity Needs Jesus.
His Power is Greater!
Jesus Christ Has the Power Save All, Even a Reprobate Mind!
If the thought of being reprobate or having a reprobate mind bothers you, then you are not alone! There is still hope. Why not humble your heart and accept the Lord Jesus Christ today!! Don’t Wait, Let’s Pray: Father, I know my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life towards you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, God in the Flesh died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
You have just allowed Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords write your name into the Lamb’s Book of Life and you will make Heaven your Home!! This is a Promise of Father God and through Jesus Christ, there are many more you can Experience! Let Me be the First to Say Welcome!! :D
Don't Slumber Now, Grab Hold of the Lord Jesus Now!!
There Are So Many Promises in Jesus!
Let Go of Self, This World and the Pleasures of It, Father God is Far Greater!!
Basically a reprobate mind is a person who is stuck on "Self" or the flesh and the things of it. So much so, this is all they see, acknowledge and live by?! There is no Eternity of Peace, Love or Hope living this way. Sadly there are so many who do and are doing so. Their only hope is to "wake Up" from a very deep sleep spiritually! Even still, they need to come to the knowledge and awareness of the Love the Lord God of Heaven Elohim (I Am That I Am), Adonai (Lord), El Shaddai (God Almighty) has for them!
Maybe, just maybe hearing or pronouncing the Holy Names of Father God might wake them up Spiritually? Like it has been stated many times, the things of "Our" Lord God is not hard. We make it complex because “We” don’t believe things are just that simple!! To live by the flesh, to be pleasure driven or have the “Love of Money” are also considered "Worldly.” This World, Let It Go can’t be stated enough! There is something which is far greater than the feeling or sensation of the flesh. Do you know what it is by now or would you still like to know?
Like it has been stated within Why Humanity Needs Jesus, and more so particularly within We Are Indeed the "Final" Generation. “We” (Humanity) are made with three parts to make one whole Human Being and they are the body, a soul and a spirit for every person on this Planet! Our body consist of the flesh and blood; our soul is the Breath of Life Father God breathed into Adam in Genesis and the Spirit is the Holy Spirit for those who know the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Otherwise, the spirit of most people is dead or not existent and these are people who don’t know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Redeemer. When we die, our soul goes to one of two destinations. If you know Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit will lift their soul into Heaven. On the flipside, if you don’t know the Lord Jesus or rejected Him your whole life, when you die the weight of your sin which has polluted your soul and down to Hell you will go. Reference Pulling People Out of the Fire to further understand this fact!
The entire point is this, the level of feeling in your spirit form is increased billions of times when compared to the level of the flesh feels its sensations. This goes for Pain, Suffering, Regret or any malicious feelings, the same can be stated for Joy, Happiness, Peace, and Love. One place, Hell, leads to Pain, Suffering, Regret and the other, Heaven, leads to Joy, Happiness, Peace, and Love. The question is, Which Will You Choose? Or where will you go?
Keep Your Thoughts in Check !!
The Battlefield is in Your Mind, Give “It” To Father God and the Victory Will Be Yours!
If it isn’t at all obvious by now, the battlefield for Life and Death is in your Mind!! This is the arena where the Lord Jesus Christ and the devil (Lucifer, Satan) and his demons are attempting to win over people to either have Life in Jesus Christ or Destruction with the devil. The devil will lie to you to cause confusion, for he is the father of lies and the author of confusion, reference Why Humanity Needs Jesus to further understand this true statement.
All the devil wants to do is destroy as many lives as he can and get back at Father God for not allowing him to reign in Heaven instead of "Our" Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am). This is what all of this is about, Whether You Know It or Not, This is Elohim’s Story! All Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty) wants is to be Pulling People Out of the Fire!! Will you be one of the ones who will allow Your Father God in Heaven to Save you through His Son Jesus Christ and escape the Eternal Fires of Hell? Or do you have a reprobate mind and now Father God must reject you, because you rejected Him? It is really this simple to understand, either you will or you will not.
A Servant of the Original Reprobate Caught On Camera!!!
The Original Reprobate Mind!!
The Number One Reprobate Mind Above All!!!
The devil (Lucifer, Satan) is the greatest reprobate mind of them all! The goal of his is to create more reprobates like him and his followers, the demons (the Fallen Angels). As we have learned, a reprobate mind is someone who has gone so far, to where they can’t be redeemed back to "Our" Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am). Here is why the devil is the archenemy of Father God, for he wants something God will not give him, the Throne of "Our" Lord God! There are many reasons why the devil is a reprobate, the main one being his hate for Father God, his pride and ego being the others. To this day, the devil wants to be greater than "Our" Father God. Unfortunately he can’t, the devil, like “Us” is created by El Shaddai (God Almighty). Therefore, none which are created can become greater than the Lord God. Make sense?
If Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) is All Powerful, All Knowing and Everywhere All at once, how could anything He established or created be greater than Him? Where would they or it, get this kind of power from? The only things they have are what were given to them by Father God, so how could they ascend to surpass that which is already the Greatest!?! Now do you see how the devil’s the number one reprobate, his thinking makes no sense. “I will become greater than Father God (Pride); I will do whatever it takes to get what I want (Ego) and I will reign in Heaven instead of El Shaddai (Hate).” “I want to Throne of God (Lust).”
Do you really want the traits of this reprobate? Has he fooled you into thinking there is "no God?" This is a reprobate thought and a lie from the devil himself, so he can destroy you!!!
This is Why Humanity Needs Jesus, Why Jesus Christ is A New Beginning and Taking Authority in Jesus Christ, for there is Great Power in His Name!!! Do you now desire to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ? The "One" who has your "Best" interests in Mind, from the day you were born!
