Vomit is What Hypocrites are to the Lord

19577198_640So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth“- Revelation 3:16

Throughout the bible, hypocrite is referenced many times which indicates this is a strong characteristic that is loathed by the Lord

Hypocrite is defined as:

1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs

2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements
Jesus spoke about hypocrites when He addressed the Scribes and Pharisees for they were outwardly representing godliness, but inward were doing the opposite
There is a serious problem with pretending to be of the elite.  That problem is in the eyes of the Lord, you are worst than the average sinner.  Sinners are who they say they are, not pretending, not putting on a show, but a hypocrite is a pretender.  Hypocrites desire recognition, but don’t want to pay the price.  Want the glory, but not the steps it take to receive it.  Jesus in Revelation 3:16 stated that He would prefer a person to be cold or hot, but when you straddle the fence, it’s like vomit to Him
Vomit is what hypocrites are to the Lord.  Of no use and definitely no good and therefore there is no need of it
Examine yourself today and if after examining yourself, you discover that you have traits of a hypocrite, today is the day to make the change.  Either salvation or damnation.  The choice is up to you!
Be Blessed
