Whose Child Are You?

Whose Child Are You?
John Gray

You have heard it said ... "Like father, like son!"  Or, perhaps you have heard the saying ... "The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree!"

 

Right-thinking folks (though-out history) have formulated these saying through the observations of the things folks say and do --- both good and bad.

 

God told us ...

 

1Jn 3:7-10 ASV.  "(7)  My little children, let no man lead you astray: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous: (8)  he that doeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  (9)  Whosoever is begotten of God doeth no sin, because his seed abideth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is begotten of God.  (10)  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother."

 

Mankind (driven by Satan) works hard at "Mudding the waters" so that the unsuspecting and those ignorant of God's word are confused as to their real parenthood.

 

Isa 5:20 ASV.  "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"  

 

2Pe 3:16 ASV.  "as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; wherein are some things hard to be understood, which the ignorant and unstedfast wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction."

 

Who is a child of the devil? He that commits sin. Who is a child of God? He that works righteousness.  Put another way, the children of the devil are such as imitate him, do his will and are openly under his power and influence; these are distinguishable from the children of God, by their lives and conversations.

 

Who is your father? 

 

Mat 7:20 ASV.  "Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
