YEAST INFECTIONS - Luke 12:1-3

Yeast Infections Click or Copy and Paste Link to LISTEN NOW!!! http://cinch.fm/spiritedconcept/479398. Luke 12:1-3 NIV Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Greetings!!! BlogFam, I do acknowledge that the title of today's blog post may not have immediately conjured up very positive or pleasant thoughts in your mind. Actually, I cannot think of one person who would hear the phrase YEAST INFECTION and turn cartwheels or give their neighbor a high five! Nope! Not one! And i do not blame you. The idea of bacteria growing on the surface or underneath one's skin is actually pretty gross. So my attention to Jesus reference to the Pharisees hypocrisy as yeast is befitting! Now to all of my Bible scholar blog followers, YES, I know that the Lord is more than likely referring to the yeast used to make bread. I am very aware of this detail; however, when is the last time you thought about making bread? When Jesus uses illustrations, He superbly relates spiritual principles to the common vocabulary of His day. And because most of us buy our bread from our local grocer, reading this passage from a 21st century perspective and incorporating the term yeast infection to paint a picture of Jesus lesson does not seem to be that much of a stretch. Candidiasis is an infection caused by a group of yeast. There are more than 20 species of Candida, the most common being Candida albicans. These fungi live on all surfaces of our bodies. Under certain conditions, they can become so numerous they cause infections, particularly in warm and moist areas. Usually the skin effectively blocks yeast, but any breakdown or cuts in the skin may allow this organism to penetrate. Rarely, the yeast infection may spread throughout the body. In systemic candidal disease, up to 75% of people may die. Even common mouth and vaginal yeast infections can cause critical illness and can be more resistant to normal treatment. Yeast infections that return may be a sign of more serious diseases such as diabetes, leukemia, or AIDS. Yeast Infections are no joke! And equally as critical for us to consider on today are the yeast infections of the soul. The bacteria of sin that feasts and festers in the secret places that we work so hard to cover up. And instead of seeking the Lord for the healing balm that we need, we live like the Pharisees, we live as hypocrites - unbecoming of children of the Most High God . Luke 12:1-3 NIV Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: "Be on your guard against the YEAST INFECTIONS of the Pharisees OR PEOPLE YOU KNOW , which is hypocrisy. For some reason they choose to ignore the most obvious symptoms of their sinful condition and its growing in certain areas of their lives that are ripe and ready to host their multiplication. And while one might just be able to cover up the physical manifestation of bacteria growing on or underneath the skins surface, regarding spiritual bacteria, Jesus declares, as recorded by Luke, There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Friends, it is time to acknowledge the infections of sin in our lives. It is time to confess our sins to the one who will forgive our sins and cut off the source of all bacteria at the root. We become hypocrites when we knowingly allow sin to feast and fester in our lives with no regard to our witness on behalf of Christ in the earth. When we do so, and serve as if we are not broken or condemn others as if we are not in need of Gods Grace and Mercy, the bacteria of sin will spread throughout the body.... the body of Christ, causing critical illness, disease, and even death. YEAST INFECTIONS ARE NO JOKE!!! AND NOW is the time for all of us to be examined by the Holy Spirit so that the Spirit may expose and extract whatever bacteria of sin is not of God. Sistas and brothas, get rid of your Yeast Infections and let us strive for holy perfection in God. And though you may not want to face or deal with the realities of your heart's condition, PLEASE know that when you surrender it all to Jesus, you can trust that you will indeed get the best treatment possible!
