The Funeral Of George Floyd: Failing To Warn The Wicked

The last funeral service for George Floyd was very spirited. Great singing. Plenty of nice words for the deceased departed, George Floyd.

BUT

No mention of salvation through Christ.

Compromise, capitulation, and a complete shut down of the primary call of the church is not that difficult to discern.

Great singing opens the soul to allow for the seeds of discord to be planted. And like direction-less sheep, they drink the poisonous waters that’s full of troubling, and led them into grass-less lands.

They were led by hirelings.

No courage to speak the truth in love.

Racism can only be solved when EVERY MAN get saved and come unto the knowledge of the truth.

You talk faith for everything else but you can’t believe God to save every man.

Until then, you’ve got PLAYED with great singing and Christ-less preaching.

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

Everything has a Genesis.

Have you ever been in a position where an act you did brought about the events afterwards?

Fornication. A child is conceived.
Adultery. A child is conceived.
Sexual Immorality. STDs.
Homosexuality. HIV/AIDS is conceived.
Stealing. Caught by cops, arrested, convicted, jail.
Lying. Then the truth comes to reveal your lie.
Running a red light. Rolling by a stop sign.

The events of Goerge Floyd were tragic but what was the one thing that George Floyd did that made way for other events?

Let’s go back to the point of origin.

Previous alleged disputes/beef with Derek Chauvin at nightclubs or bars. (Christian at a bar doing the work of a bouncer?) Think about it.

Allegedly a counterfeit $20 bill. No one should be killed over this but what if George had paid with a debit card or other legitimate forms of payment?

The events that led to his death, is what happened to set the stage?

The choices we make determines destiny.

Decisions Determines Destiny.

That’s not the point you say.

Ok, fair point. Just remember when you run a red light and you try to explain to the police or trooper that you didn’t run that light to out right lie. And what you did, was caught on camera. Then before a judge, that evidence is presented. Now what?

Go back to where this all started.

The point of origin.

As the Bible says “I go the way of all the earth.”

Translation?

The whole earth goes the way of death. They call it being “laid to rest” and they also say “Rest In Peace.”

But notice this Scripture.

Isaiah 57:20-21

But the wicked are like the troubled sea,
When it cannot rest,
Whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
“There is no peace,”
Says my God, “for the wicked.”

If George Floyd is genuinely saved, then he’s in the presence of the Lord.

Proverbs 23:17-18

“Do not let your heart envy sinners,
But be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day;
For surely there is a hereafter,
And your hope will not be cut off.”

But if he’s not saved, where did he go?

Mark 16:16

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”

Condemned means hell, in “torment,” in the place where there’s “weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

You see, this is offensive to the unsaved because they all believe in everyone going to heaven. But the reality is that….

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

This was missing in every service they had for George Floyd.

And every preacher that said something but never said anything about the reality of death and getting saved, will render an account to the Head of the Church.

Ezekiel 3:18-19

When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

The Minister's Crucible is designed to inform the Body of Christ about the inner workings of the ministry. The word Crucible from Latin, is "crux" where we get the word "cross" from. It also means a "metal container" where metals and other substances are melted or are subjected to higher temperatures, put to the temperature test. The Lord Jesus said "If any man desires to follow after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me." Let's take up our cross and follow Him.
