2 Corinthians 6:14-18 NASB
"Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,
“I will dwell in them and walk among them;
And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
“Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord.
“And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will welcome you.
“And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty.
Some may conclude that it's just me harping on an issue that I am claiming plagues the Church today...but this is not me. You read what you read above and it is not from me at all. I have, on many numerous occasions, stated clearly that I am just not that good of a writer to come up with now over 600 writings to date on this blog. This message isn't from me, as I am told, so I write. That's how God explained it to me.
The Church today is in trouble. Much of it has lost its way. As Jesus spoke of in the Book of Revelation, so the Church is today. Much of it has lost its attachment to the heart of God. Much of it is disease ridden with worldly concepts and behaviors. Satan has done exactly as it reads in the warnings of Thessalonians and Timothy. Exactly as it is written.
That Church that I mentioned weeks ago did exactly as you first read today in compromising where it stands before God in recieving worldly behavior as acceptable to winning people for Christ.
You cannot try to see how close you can get to a fire before you get burned.
Read Proverbs, which is where I am in my daily reading. Read what it says of evil influences. Read what it says if how the righteous should live, work and behave.
Read what it says that leads to a life pleasing to the Lord.
As it was in the days of the early Roman Empire, so we are again living today. Which empire are you serving? Sometimes to be a true Christian means not being a good Roman. I read that again this past week on Facebook.
My friend, it nauseates me to consider how full Churches will be one second after the Rapture. People who were deceived by false teachers who claimed to speak for God. Indeed there will be people saved during the Tribulation but most if not all will become martyrs for Christ.
When God speaks, it's always best to shut up n listen.
My prayer is that somehow these posts lead people to Christ. That somehow someone is freed from being self-deceived. That someone might come to Christ.
Let today be the day you are freed from a life of sin. Let today be the day your eyes are opened. Invite Jesus into your heart and life. The time is growing short.
Consider the truths of the times:
Israel has been looking for certified red heifers to inaugurate a new Temple. They have plenty now.
Israel has Jerusalem as its capital again.
In Israel people are being taught what to do in Temple worship.
They have had all the materials to build a Temple ready for over 30 years. The time is close.
At the beginning of the Tribulation Israel will be at peace with her neighbors. Perhaps you have seen the beginning of that in recent days. 2 Islamic nations have restored relations with israel.
The time to choose Christ is coming to an end soon. Once the last person who is to be saved is saved that's it. That's why the Great Commission is what it is.
It's my opinion that the great global earthquake that hits with the Tribulation will reveal the long lost Ark of the Covenant. That is what Israel is looking for in all its archaeological digging. It will likely be found when Turkey, Russia and Iran attempt to attack Israel. The Scriptures say God Himself will deliver them. That symbol of God will inspire them to build the Temple.
The news does what it can to promote sinful lives and behaviors. You must come to Christ to find the light of truth to understand what is really happening around you. Only in Christ can that be found. Not with or through any association with anything of this world.
I am, as my Spiritual Dad says, am ready for the shout that calls us out to be with Jesus! Are you?
