Are you SINCERE?

1 Corinthians 2:13

King James Version

13 Which things also we speak, 

not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, 

but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; 

comparing spiritual things with spiritual.


Blame it on my hearing.

Which latched on to the word "sincere".

All because I heard a sermon using that word.

And here's how it sounded.

Go check.

Didn't that sound like:

sin-seer?


Honestly?

It sounded that to me.

The playful mind GOD gave me, thought a thing.

Wouldn't it be nice if we are seers with our own sins?

That we can clearly see, and acknowledge our sins?

Since we're full of it, anyway.

I know GOD doesn't like seers.

Leviticus 19:31

King James Version

31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, 

neither seek after wizards, 

to be defiled by them: 

I am the Lord your God.


But for the purpose of this article, I chose the other  definitions Merriam-Webster gave out.

"Seer" is:

-- one that sees

-- a person credited with extraordinary moral and spiritual insight


I am not referring to those practicing divination.

Only GOD sees.

Only His SPIRIT sees.

And He calls our attention to it.

If you're born again, a Bible-believing person, you will surely hear the LORD.

You will see as GOD wants you to see.

Especially with the issues of sin.

And you will pay attention.

SEAR that sin, through the FIRE of the HOLY SPIRIT:

2 Corinthians 7:1

King James Version

7 Having therefore these promises, 

dearly beloved, 

let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness 

of the flesh and spirit, 

perfecting holiness in the fear of God.


So, are you sin-seer?
