When the World Stops Listening

They say the mind can take only so much and then it stops listening. Some are calling it overload, while others are calling it selective hearing.  Whatever it is, it appears that the whole world has stopped listening. They have turned away from the ancient religions and are embracing a new future that promises many unbelievable advances in technology. These changes promise to enhance humanity’s ability to experience a deeper understanding of the entire universe and their unique place in it. These changes promise to give them a fulfilled life where the whole world will come together as one in peace and tranquility. These changes promise to open the door to a new reality where anything is possible from communicating with the animal kingdom to utilizing artificial intelligence to enhance their abilities. Nothing seems impossible to a world that has jettisoned classic Christianity for a brave new world. Although many will continue to play church, they no longer trust in God for their future, and they no longer trust in religion to chart their path ahead. They have joined the lukewarm church and no longer listen to God exclusively.

We live in a world that no longer wants to hear the deep things about the risen Christ and His miraculous work through the indwelling Spirit. They no longer want to hear about our need for Spiritual growth by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. They no longer want to hear that we have been given everything we need for life and godliness, which would cause them to reject most of humanity’s self helps. They no longer want to hear about God’s loving providence, even if we must faithfully endure trials and tribulations. The world has stopped listening because they have either rejected Christianity altogether or they have grown comfortable with the lukewarm church. It’s a sad state of affairs when we equate the rejection of Christianity with the lukewarm church but unfortunately, that’s exactly where Satan has led the modern church. The modern church has aggressively accepted all the new teachings from the world causing them to turn a deaf ear to the eternal truths passed on to us by our forefathers. So, let’s take a closer look at these unchanging truths that must be embraced by every true believer in Christ and truths that must be tirelessly proclaimed from the pulpit of their churches.

The true Church of God embraces the power and miraculous work of the Holy Spirit (John 6:4-15; I Corinthians 12:1-31). Without the power of the Holy Spirit, we will never be all that God wants us to be in Christ. Without the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit, the church will become stagnant in its growth and not be that bright shining light on a hill. The good news is this power of the Holy Spirit is immediately available to every believer who is called into the Kingdom. There is no waiting for those who believe and know in their hearts that they have been called. The Spirit is our Helper in all things from Spiritual growth to understanding and using our Spiritual gifts for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom here on earth. We have all been given Spiritual gifts not based on our natural abilities but on our call into the eternal Kingdom. Furthermore, the Spirit stays with us every moment of every day as our new Holy Resident. He always guides us and directs us along life’s narrow path experiencing one miracle after another that’s only fully realized as we mature in Christ. Every true Church embraces the power and miraculous work of the Holy Spirit.

The true Church of God embraces the absolute need for Spiritual growth from one degree of glory to another (II Corinthians 3:18). Spiritual growth is not about learning empty doctrines and endless rituals or memorizing the entire Bible from cover to cover. On the other hand, it is working closely with the indwelling Spirit by receiving His convictions and following His prompting even if it’s extremely uncomfortable. Reading slowly and methodically Holy Scripture allows it to penetrate deep within our own hearts bringing forth remorse, confession, and repentance, thus putting off the old life of sin and putting on the new life in Christ. In the beginning, you will not read far before the tears of remorse flow down your cheeks leading you to cry out to the Lord in confession, agreeing to turn from your sin and never repeat it. In the place of the old life, we discover the new life, which must be put into place immediately, which takes great faith. Although putting on the new life in Christ may seem uncomfortable and quite awkward, in time through the power of the indwelling Spirit you will blossom with joy and a peace that defies understanding. The true believer doesn’t look to grow only once a week by listening to Spirit-filled preaching, but they grow Spiritually every day by reading Holy Scripture and listening to the indwelling Spirit. Every true Church embraces the absolute need for Spiritual growth.

The true Church of God embraces the sufficiency of Holy Scripture for all of life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). This is a beautiful truth that all the old hang-ups and besetting sins we had before Christ no longer have a hold on us. We have been set free to grow up Spiritually in Christ to become a beautiful new creation. We have not been left alone but have the indwelling Spirit, our Helper, and the Holy Scripture that gives us everything we need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). All those old emotional and psychological problems no longer have a hold on the new person in Christ. God promises to give us the solution for every problem facing humanity. As true believers in Christ, we no longer need the world’s counselors or psychotropic drugs to overcome our problems. As true believers in Christ, we no longer trust fallen humanity to solve our many emotional and psychological problems, but we trust God, who created us and knows everything about us. We have learned how to bring our problems directly to God in deep prayer and meditation believing that He will solve every problem in His time. As the true Church of God, we embrace the sufficiency of Holy Scripture.

The true Church of God embraces God’s loving providence (Romans 8:28). As we grow up Spiritually every day trusting in God for all of life and godliness, we are still left temporarily in the fallen world controlled by the powers of darkness. Although the powers of darkness will use our trials and tribulations to cause us to stumble, God will always turn things around and use them for our eternal benefit if we maintain our trust in His loving providence. The Bible says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). It is a marvelous thing to trust in God to work all things together for good. For when we have eyes to see we will witness one miracle after another as God defeats the enemy of our souls and uses the trials and tribulations to strengthen our faith in Christ. As we mature in Christ we will learn to rejoice in trials and tribulations knowing that they are used for the perfecting of our faith (James 1:2-4). The lukewarm church is being destroyed by the many trials and tribulations of the last days, whereas the true Church of God embraces God’s loving providence.

Finally, the true Church of God embraces the exclusiveness of Christianity (John 14:6). We know that Christ is the only way to salvation, so we behave accordingly. Many claim to know the truth that Christ is the only way, but then they do their godless research for every little problem that comes into their lives. They freely associate with other religions, oftentimes seeking their advice about life and godliness. They have no problem seeking advice from the world or fallen humanity to understand the deeper truths about spirituality or the supernatural. They have no problem joining with those who practice inclusiveness, going so far as to say all paths lead to heaven. In conclusion, it’s past time for all of God’s precious children to either reform the church they attend or start a new fellowship that only preaches the truth. There is a reckoning coming very soon that will truly separate the sheep from the goats. I pray that all those who claim Jesus Christ as their Savior will be ready to defend their faith or be swept away by the teachings of the lukewarm church and the powers of darkness. The choice is yours.

Please Join Me in Prayer 

Good morning Heavenly Father. You know Lord, that the battle rages on for your beloved children as we struggle against an unjust world seeking to mold us into its image. From the politicians who enact new laws to the judges who enforce them, and to their counselors who justify them, we are led into further captivity and away from your gracious promises of a new life in Christ. We cry out to you, our God, day and night for your mercy and grace to stand firm against our adversaries so that in time all your beautiful promises can be fulfilled in our lives. We long to experience the new life in Christ free from the haunting memories of our past failures. We long to experience total perfection free from the sinful habits of our old sin nature. We long to experience all your beautiful and powerful promises fulfilled in our lives. We continue to cry out day and night in prayer believing that you will, that you are, fulfilling all your wonderful promises. We will continue to fight the good fight of faith until we walk with you in paradise. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?” (Luke 18:7).

Extreme Danger on the Horizon

If we see danger and don’t sound the alarm, then we shall be held accountable by our Lord (Ezekiel 33:3-9). I have been greatly grieved that many Christians have arisen and cast a serious accusation against other believers in Christ by stating that they are not really Christians. We know from God’s Word to do such a thing is the same thing as calling them a fool, putting them in danger of hell fire (Matthew 5:22). History teaches us that most all the persecutions against Christians have come from others claiming to be Christians, excluding the persecution by Muslims. Although this is a common practice among many Christians in our day when someone slightly disagrees with their theology, it becomes a greater concern when an entire movement or people are being targeted as not being Christians. When thousands of mostly white evangelical Christians are being targeted for their beliefs about the political establishment, then we should all be concerned. Although this targeting may only be towards “Christian Nationalism,” it could very easily spill over to other Christians who have similar beliefs about the political establishment. Although I am personally not involved in this political movement, I still hold to some of their beliefs, which I have been preaching for many years.

For many years, I have been preaching, teaching, and writing about how the Christian community has so easily allowed itself to be led astray by integrating the world’s teachings with Holy Scriptures. They no longer believe that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). Therefore, the lines at the counseling offices are growing longer as the lines to trusting in God’s ability to solve their problems are growing much shorter. The greater problem is this reliance upon psychological counseling is being taught in schools as they have rejected both prayers in schools and Bible study. If that were not enough, little children are being taught to ignore their parents, because they have the freedom to choose their own gender and experiment with sexual immorality, or other perverted lifestyles. This opens the door to abortion on demand thus denying the sanctity of life (Jeremiah 1:5). The horror continues as every other world religion is taught as being equal to Christianity as well as even introducing them to atheism or the viability of New Age thinking. We could go on with changing history to immoral textbooks, but you get the point, that we are becoming more of a pagan nation rather than a Christian nation.

Although I greatly love my brothers and sisters in the movement, Christian Nationalism, I believe they have no chance of really changing the direction of this nation through political activism. After losing at least three generations of our children through the diabolical move away from the Biblical faith of our forefathers, changing every single political office in America will not change her course. The only thing that will eventually turn things around is to faithfully follow God’s plan in the Bible. This will be our only hope. If you refuse and put your trust in the Christian Nationalism movement to change the direction of the nation, then you will need to heed the warning. I have already mentioned that many Christian churches believe that this movement is not Christian, going so far as to call them heretics, leaving it open for persecution or something far worse. Christians who are actively standing against Christian Nationalism have gathered signatures from over 24,000 clergy, church leaders, and lay people across the United States. In their statement of faith, they have clearly stated that they have no problem integrating with all faiths or non-faiths (pagans) in every area of society (the public square). We have seen what that has accomplished by allowing other faiths and non-faiths to make our laws and teach our children. What’s coming will horrify you but should not surprise you if you know your history.

When we study Old Testament history our eyes are immediately opened to the extreme danger of allowing God’s people to integrate with other people who follow other faiths or have no faith. In every instance, we have seen God’s people carried away in excessive immorality as they turned away from their God. Furthermore, if we take a lesson from history, this movement, Christian Nationalism, could be used as a scapegoat for all the problems facing America, especially the chaos caused by the sheer number of people and movements teaching their various beliefs. The coming Antichrist will seek to bring order out of chaos by enshrining man’s laws over the laws of God. The coming Antichrist, who is also called the man of lawlessness, will allow the people to do whatever they want, no matter how immoral, as long as they don’t proclaim the exclusiveness of Christianity, don’t elevate God’s laws over man’s laws, and continue to integrate the world’s teachings with Holy Scripture (II Thessalonians 2:3, ESV). In Germany, Hitler used the Jews as a scapegoat first through persecution, then by extermination. The Antichrist will be the instrument that Satan will use to exterminate Christians who are dedicated to changing his direction and remaining obedient to Christ alone.

As I have already stated, we have hope if we follow God’s Holy Scriptures. We are called to do two things and neither one is political. The first thing we must do is to come out from among them, which includes our children, grandchildren, and our great-grandchildren (II Corinthians 6:17; Revelation 18:4). Take them out of public school immediately. Either teach them yourself or enlist Christian teachers that will use only your syllabus (Proverbs 22:6). They must learn early on that sexual immorality is wrong and that burning for the same sex is an abomination (I Corinthians 6:18; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:27). They must learn early on that there is only one true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (I Timothy 2:5). They must learn the exclusiveness of Christianity (John 14:6). They must learn early on that the Scriptures are sufficient for all of life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). The second thing every Christian is called to do is to let your light shine in a very dark world always ready and willing to share the hope within you (Matthew 5:16; I Peter 3:15). If we see our brother committing a trespass, then we must confront them and restore them with all gentleness (Galatians 6:1). Many believers throughout Christian history have taken this high road and have overthrown empires and overcome corrupt theological institutions. Dear Christian, we must stop the integration and come out from among them.

Finally, living in a free country we have our right to vote, but we must never put our trust in the political establishment. If we do as some of our brothers and sisters have done in Christian Nationalism, then we will be gravely disappointed and will soon be facing persecution or worse. Dear friends, the Antichrist is already at the door. If we have eyes to see, then we have already witnessed his work. Most Christians no longer believe in the sufficiency of Scripture. They no longer believe in the exclusiveness of Christianity. We are already experiencing the great falling away, which will make us easy prey for the Antichrist to lead us around by the nose from one social media post to another. Every day he is training the world to reject their God given reality and flee to the coming Metaverse. God help us. We know and can feel the old sin nature wanting us to pick up the weapons of this world and fight back through voting, political maneuvering, rallies, advertisements, and even chanting in the streets. We will vote, but we know in our hearts that there is only one path to victory, a victory that every Christian longs for where all of your people will be obedient to God’s Word alone, above the immoral laws of the land. So, help us dear Lord to take up our cross and follow your path to victory using only spiritual weapons. We shall overcome. Please accept this prophetic word and warning from your brother in Christ who deeply loves all of God’s precious children. Amen.

Are You Following a Blind Guide?

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” To be partially blind to the truth, or mixing truth with a lie, still makes you a blind guide leading your followers into the pit of inevitable consequences of following a lie. A true word from Jesus Christ is not to let these blind guides overcome you or cause you anxiety (See Matthew 15:14). With God’s help, we can confront all these lies from every source in both society and religious life as they are brought before us through listening or reading. This is possible my dear friends, if we truly hide God’s Word in our hearts and learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. When we do this, we will be able to expose and confront every lie. We will also be able to free those who have been taken captive to follow the lies of the enemy. Continue reading Are You Following a Blind Guide?

On Which Truths Are You Willing to Die? (Video)

As we approach the end, we need to know, which truths we are willing to be persecuted for, even to death if necessary. We cannot wait until it happens before we decide. Let’s be clear, your persecutors will typically give you an opportunity to recant of your strongly held beliefs and accept their false religion or heretical beliefs.
