Permissiveness is Not Accepted

We walk in the integrity of Redemption. God has never given us permission to sin. There are certain kinds of love that God does not permit. Never has God ordained a fleshly relationship. He only ordains godly fellowship. In Heaven, only Holy Spirit fellowships exist. A carnal, fleshly love that is permissive in its actions, thoughts, and feelings may be assuming that God is permissive, but be sure your sin will find you out and you will reap what you sow.

The foolish woman of Proverbs speaks so loudly about permissiveness through presumption. Have you ever presumed a relationship to be right with God despite your permissiveness to love, act, feel, and think without Christ? When was the last time you were wounded? Was it a wound because of self-pity and you felt so poorly about yourself and that no one else seemed to care? Water came to your eyes and you felt completely wounded in a sentimental relationship with Adam in yourself to produce Adam feelings of self-pity. Or, have you been wounded because you never got what you wanted from the Lord in your soul? You felt that the Lord had not honored your decisions, that He had not blessed you specifically because He was not meeting you with what you thought you needed in your soul.

All of this is because you have been living in a permissive relationship with God. God's love allows us to live in godliness, power, and life-permissive to nothing, but all things come through Calvary.
