I rebuke the spirit of compromise. Why are you asking for permission to be you? Your so called friends have become fences, barriers to fully embracing ME.
I will have no other gods before ME, choose the charity of men or choose intimacy with ME. You are yielding to the will of others, those who know and have less.
Are you starved for fellowship? Is another human, worth your soul? Surely, they would not make the same sacrifice for you. Find yourself, your loyalties are misguided.
Make the adjustment, before too much ground is lost. MY heart misses you, where are thou Adam? Walk with ME again in the cool of the day, all is forgiven. All is forgiven.
Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him (Jesus), but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
The arrogance of man will be brought low
and human pride humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear.
