But I Don’t Want To Be Persecuted.

I feel that there is a great shift in the consciousness and commitment of the church on the horizon. Over the last 40 yrs there has been a false gospel of health, wealth and prosperity presented to the world and many have “bought” into it, hook line and sinker. From John Osteen to Kenneth Hagan, Oral Roberts, Rod Parsley, Benny Hinn, and oh so many others, they have tickled the ears of whoever would listen, and they have conditioned the church to expect great returns for little or no effort and discipline.

I am of the opinion that shortly the shaking of the Church will begin, and then the great falling away. Persecution has been something spoken about concerning the church in the third world countries, and places where communism and atheism was the rule, but not here in the USA, not in America?

One of the very few things I agree with our current President is that the United States is no longer a Christian nation, that ended after WWII. I believe America to be a pagan country, mostly secular and very self-centered. The Church of Jesus Christ Is Asleep, and must be shaken to Wake to the call of the Master. The church has always prospered under persecution, and IF these are the “Last Days” as many believe, the church will be led to revival by Righteous suffering. The False teachers will be revealed for who they are, and the righteous shepherds will rise to lead. As the persecution begins, many, many will leave the comfy place of false security, and abandon their so-called relation with Christ, and will renounce their “Faith”, to follow another lie.

Joshua’s words ring down thru history, “Choose you this day, who you will serve!”

Stay tuned, it’s about to get real!

Did You Feel That?

MAN O MAN!  The last couple of weeks really have the natives howling. The headlines have been nothing but doom, division, and fear-mongering, from the threat of the Islamist of ISIS, to the senseless murders of the Christians in a mid-week Bible Study by a racist lunatic, to the two audacious decisions by the  U.S. Supreme Court that upholds Obama-care, and, grants the right to homosexual marriage. It sure seems that the good ole USA that I grew up in, is gone, disappeared it seems over night. I have to admit, I’m not really happy with what I see happening around me, BUT, I believe these things and a lot more have to happen for the Will of God to be revealed and His plan to come to pass. Some people act like nothing is happening and others are calling for revolution, go figure. There has to be a cultural tipping point to begin the transition to the Lawless One. The people have to be conditioned to desire someone to “FIX” what they think has become unbearable. I am of the opinion that this is just the beginning, there will be much more unsettling incidents to follow, there has to be. I also believe that it is time for the Household of faith to take inventory. We need to sort through all of the stuff that we have acquired over the course of life, and set aside all that holds us back, and distracts from the mission of being the Church. As the shaking gets stronger, the lost will begin to look around for something that makes sense, and someone who understands, that us. Ditch all that Distracts, Cull all that Compromises, Prepare for the Platform that the Lord Jesus will provide to tell the World why we believe.

Be Blessed
