THE BALANCE BETWEEN FAITHFULNESS AND APOSTASY
It is easily shown from GOD’S Word that
“the fear of the LORD” is not the supreme motivation in today‘s Christianity. Scripture defines it this
way: “Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” “The fear
of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth.” “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good
understanding have all they that do his commandments.” Job 28:28; Prove.8:13; Ps.111:10. And the church has turned away
from "his commandments" to "a thing of nought."
For the sake of maintaining a good reputation
simple confessions of public wrongdoing against the salvation of Christ had never been publicly acknowledged by the church
until the courts were allowed to sit in judgment and expose the sins of priests against children. This long and abusive history
would have remained hidden had not the sins of the church come to public awareness. Everything from cloaking sin behind the
garb of virtue to siphoning money for personal luxuries the churches insist they stand under the authority of Jesus Christ.
But public sin demands public repentance (Mk.1:5). And prophecy declares the churches will never repent. Nor will revisions
been made that since the Dark Ages could undo many sinful doctrines of the past that have literally crippled to this day the
work of the Gospel. And thus the church is responsible for sacrificing untold numbers of souls to perdition.
Worst of all, guard posts have been set up to prevent
any allowance “for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly
furnished unto all good works.” II Tim.3:16,17. These words are anathema to ruling Christianity! The pride of men and
their love affair with "the tradition of men" shun GOD’S call to revision and repentance, and thus, obstruct
the success of the closing work of Christ in the Earth.
This continued stubborn posture postpones the 2nd Advent indefinitely! In summation the counter-Reformation spearheaded
by the Jesuit Order of the Roman Catholic Church against the Protestant movement has succeeded beyond all expectations (Rev.13:16).
And Satan is their leader, attending their every step with his temptations and miracles, to the objective to lead all men
to share in the sins that condemn him (Eze.28:16), and thus stand condemned before Christ on Judgment Day, "for we shall
all stand before the judgment seat of Christ." (Rom.14:10). The superficial churches are merely following the path of
Saul, first king of Israel: the corrupting blend of greed and cowardice (I Sam.8:10-18, 15:24).
But wisdom calls for discretion on behalf of Christianity’s
history, regardless of one’s rank or position in GOD’S work throughout A.D. history. The Enemy of Souls will send
a thousand demons to deceive and destroy one leader in the church, whereas the common atheist will be left alone (Job 1:8-11).
Through the oppression of spiritual powers Christians make far more mistakes in judgment than those who have never struggled
to follow GOD and strive to obey His Commandments (Rom.7:15-25; Rev.12:17). This visible contrast between believers and unbelievers
gives the unbelieving world the leverage to bolster their pride and reject the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ.
But the carnal world has no concept of the reality
of what is taking place, nor do they realize the sacredness of Scripture’s declaration that the world continues day
by day solely due to the presence of the few righteous men and women within the ranks of Christendom, as the LORD said to
Abraham so long ago, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their
sakes.” Gen.18:26. This passage emphatically teaches that all unrepentant sinners owe their daily existence to “the
remnant” (Rev.12:17) who have imbibed the Holy Ghost in their lives (Rom.8:11). And the Bible also declares that when
the apostate church and the world unite to make that final, unchanging decision to rid the world of the Biblically faithful
class of men, women and children (of the age of accountability), the world will quickly plummet to its lifeless condition
as foretold in prophecy (Isa.24; Jer.4:23-28; Rev.20).
Many in the church who realize the spiritual warfare taking place have shown a lack of diligence: in prayer, Bible
study and action to help others withstand the deceptive schemes of the devil through his pawns among men. The apostles were
diligent to unmask the deceptive ploys of the great deceiver, and how Satan tirelessly exploits man’s inherited selfish
nature as bequeathed to us by the sin of our father Adam, as well as our compassion and other traits of affection and trust
to secure our temporal and eternal ruin (Gen.3:6; Ps.35:12; Lu.23:34; II Cor.2:11). But today, the church’s relationship
with GOD, the Holy Bible and the world is one of verifiable hypocrisy, thus disqualifying any claims of standing in GOD’S
approbation (Lu.13:3). Anything that fosters falsehood (Ps.101:7), or sin (Jn.9:41) or pride (Jer.50:31) stands outside of
GOD’S salvation as Jesus defines it, “Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.” “Except thou
repent” “ye shall die in your sins.” Jn.8:34; Rev.2:5; Jn.8:21.
It is no different than today’s Jewish nation calling itself Israel, who use the name of their righteous father,
Israel, simply for their self-aggrandizement. GOD changed Jacob’s name to “Israel” because his faith “in
Christ” represented the seal of his recognition of GOD’S method of salvation. The father of Israel, Abraham was
the father of Christianity. Abraham was in fact a Christian! He believed the vision given him of Jesus Christ (Jn.8:56, 14:13,14)
and stood in awe that GOD would honor him in such a magnanimous way.
Therefore, today’s nation calling itself Israel has no right to take the name of their righteous father, when
the leaders who daily deny Christ continue to crucify the very GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in their public denial of Him
(Matt.10:33) as it is written, “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly
gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
If they shall fall away [apostatize], to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God
afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Heb.6:4-6.
But GOD has a plan for Israel. He has ordained today’s Israel to discover Jeremiah’s grotto containing
the Ark of the Covenant. And within the ark is GOD’S Immutable Law. In the day GOD has appointed it will be brought
forth to public view, that men in the church can see just where they have deviated from the Standard that will judge all men
(Rom.2:13). And nothing will prevent His determination from this most forceful display of His Tangible Glory before the world
when paganized Christianity asserts its authority over the Earth commanding the universal transgression of GOD’S Holy
Law by imposing the pagan Sunday over the Holy Sabbath day. Yes, it is over GOD’S appointed day vs. man’s appointed
day: the day Jesus honored (Lu.4:16) vs. the day Catholic and Protestant dogma insist must be held. Obedience to GOD’S
Law or subjection to man’s law that stands defiant to GOD, this will be the great shaking of the church determining
who receives “the seal of the living God” (Rev.7:2) and who will take “the mark, or the name of the beast,
or the number of his name.” Rev.13:17.
Today’s Christian leaders are illiterate to the fact that Sunday is a synonym for the devil’s heavenly
BIBLE TEXTS VERIFY TODAY’S APOSTASY IN THE CHURCH
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which
he [Jesus Christ] shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.” Deut.18:19.
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at
the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous
scarcely be saved [those whose names are on the church books], where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” I Pet.4:17,18.
Those in leadership roles, who, to this day,
have rejected the Gracious Light sent from GOD, through His servants the prophets, have held back the heaven-appointed work
that will usher the 2nd Advent of the LORD Jesus Christ. This procrastination only gives Satan more time to torment men and
disfigure the image of GOD in man. A false assurance has been given by the religious leaders of our generation that the Gospel
message has been accepted and is being carried to the world. But the fact remains that the effects this message will bring
to the world are no where to be found, being evidenced by the following fact that Christians are being baptized into a religious
system promoting the perpetuation of sin in the church itself. It is even alleged that the pagan Sunday is so sacred that
it is vital to man’s survival when its origins can historically be traced back to Nimrod, the son of Ham whose family
was cursed of his father Noah for their sinful ways (Gen.9:20-25, 10:8-10, 11:1-9). It is this corruption of the Sacred Law
that will mislead the religious world when the threat to the survival of man comes to the forefront of public awareness. This
is the one unifying factor between Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Orthodox Christians, Muslims,
Buddhists, Hindus, Spiritualists, the New Age, and Atheists: they all stand as one in their utter denial of the authority
of the 4th Commandment of Jesus Christ (Jn.8:58). The very Law Jesus obeyed to redeem us these religions of the Earth refuse
its authority, and its blessing in GOD’S promise to restore all that was lost through sin. To turn from any of GOD’S
Laws is to turn from the security of life provided within their jurisdiction (Ja.2:10-12).
The sin(s) that the religions of the world refuse to repent from shows their half-hearted service to GOD. Therefore,
the leading church denominations must face the fact that they are back to square one on the Gospel commission of Jesus Christ
and GOD’S call to universal repentance from ALL sin and not just SOME sin. As a result, the Bible teaches that the leaders
in the church have continued to be more responsible for every affliction and death of the 20th century than any two-bit tyrant,
Spiritualist, covert Jesuit, New Age advocate, Muslim, or Atheist (Eze.34).
The Bible is crystal clear about the reality that two world wars, the Great Depression, the Korean War, the Vietnam
War, today's war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and literally all suffering and death today rests in the hands of professing
Christians, Catholic and Protestant alike (I Ki.18:17,18)! This is simply because Christ could have come long ago had the
church done her duty in completing the Gospel commission: “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the
world for a witness unto all nations; AND THEN SHALL THE END COME.” Matt.24:14. “The end” can’t come
until “this gospel” is preached. A corrupt gospel lends no contribution to finish the work. And Bible prophecy
declares that through Rome, a corrupt gospel will rule the church until the end. This is why the LORD prophesied: “Come
out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Rev.18:4. The
LORD through the pen of Jeremiah warned of the aftermath of men’s stubborn hearts in the church:
“A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with
the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD Thus saith the LORD
of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the
earth. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from [one] end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they
shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground. Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and
wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished;
and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel. And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.”
“For I have no
pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.” Eze.18:32. With
all the prophecies and Bible passages where GOD warns the ministers of His church, these men always point away from themselves
concerning the Bible's list of crimes against humanity (Jer.2:35). Claiming innocent hands, they always come out smelling
like a rose while others take the blame (Gen.3:11-13). But the day is coming that the aroma from today’s Christianity
will be exposed as nothing more than a Glade Air Freshener (Dan.2:29-45). All self-flattering speeches, sermons, and evangelistic
props used to exalt the church, even the numerous conspiracy books on the New World Order and other secret societies: the
Jesuit Order, the Illuminati, the Free Masons, the The Bilderberg Group, the Skull and Bones fraternity, the artisans of witchcraft,
and even the Hells Angels motorcycle gang (who demand the transgression of every Commandment of GOD as part of their initiation),
all being passed around in Christian circles to blind them to the true issues of salvation (I Cor.2:2), these are the never-ending
volumes of the sinful schemes of men. All this does is to eclipse the reality of GOD’S call to carry out “the
gospel of Christ,” “and him crucified” (Rom.1:16; I Cor.2:2). A man can spend a thousand years itemizing
the never-ending volumes of the sins of men and never bring us one step closer to the coming of Christ! Without the Truth
to expose the falsehood, the end can not come, period! “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner
of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” II Pet.3:11,12.
Corporate Christianity is as a blind, deaf,
quadriplegic in a wheelchair who thinks he is ready for the Olympic Games. But the LORD says, “Because thou sayest,
I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched [shameful], and miserable
[a cause of suffering], and poor [living in spiritual poverty], and blind [undiscerning and indifferent to their needs and
the needs of others], and naked [exposed as unrepentant in sin]: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire [faith
refined through patience in tribulation], that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment [covered in the righteousness of “God
in Christ”], that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear [our “evil”
and “desperately wicked” nature]; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve [having discernment of Scripture’s
boundaries of sin and salvation], that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and
to acknowledge His Words, “Because thou…knowest not,” shows how faithless, naked and blind sin has made
men professing GOD’S Holy Name. The Bible’s words of rebuke to today’s Christianity who fosters the proliferation
of sin in the church are unmistakable, “Thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.”
“His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving
to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all
look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.” Isa.43:24; 56:10,11.
In summation, the world’s religious leaders merely build the kingdom of this world, not the Kingdom of Heaven
(II Pet.2:17-21). The pen of Inspiration affirms the church’s rejection of GOD’S last work in the Earth. One of
a hundred examples: the King James Version of the Holy Bible does not hold the place of preeminence as it should. The “Received
Text,” or “Majority Text,” restored to western Christianity by the Dutch scholar, Erasmus, whose origins
can historically be traced back to the great Bible scholar, Lucian of Antioch, (who edited the Apostles original Manuscripts),
which, before him, were all assembled and organized by the Apostle John in his closing days in Ephesus; this is the only text
that can historically be traced back to the hands of the Apostles themselves. The GOD of Heaven did not leave us blind without
a paper trail, though most of true Christian history has been surgically removed by Satan’s saboteurs in the church,
beginning in 600 A.D. when pope Gregory I burned the two palatine libraries of the Waldensian Christians whose documented
history extended back to within twenty years after the death of the Apostle John, according to John Calvin’s associate,
With the bewildering
number of “modern” translations whose thematic core works to contradict the King James Version in every potent
text exposing the snares of Satan to seduce the church away from Christ’s truth and salvation it is evident that betrayal
to GOD’S Word is thematic. From the Ten Commandments (Rev.22:14), from the unconscious state of the dead (Eccl.9:5,10;
Ps.146:4), to the prophecies verifying Christ as the Saviour of ALL mankind through simple arithmetic (Dan.9:24-27): and even
GOD’S judgment of the ungodly at the second resurrection, [not before (II Pet.2:9)], the church stands naked in its
belligerence. Simply put, today’s popular doctrines are the bitter fruits of Satan‘s sophistry, just as they were
in the days of Jesus Christ! How can unity rule the church when everybody reads from a different Bible where literally hundreds
of contradictions occur between the various translations, where the very words of Christ have been removed, including the
closing words of the LORD’S prayer itself (NIV)? The Bible simply asks, “Can two walk together, except they be
agreed?” Amos 3:3. None of the modern Bibles agree with the King James Version.
Today’s Christianity claims to be an advocate of the Bible, descendants of the apostolic church. But corrupt
translations abound, reducing the “received text,” or “majority text” to be little more than a byword
today and a special target of attack and criticism; using the few inaccuracies of the KJV translators as the means of rejecting
the very manuscripts of the original Greek and Hebrew, proven to be handed down from the Apostles themselves to the church
in the wilderness (Rev.12:6), and from the church in the wilderness to the Reformers, and from the Reformers to us! In essence,
the Church has supplanted Christ’s Truth with lies and confusion. By promoting contradicting manuscripts, men of supposed
scholarship, in prideful determination ignore GOD’S many warnings to never meddle with His Holy Word (Deut.4:2; Rev.22:18,19).
The Bible condemns every man who has maligned GOD’S Word. And yet, according to these ‘scholars,’ “All
Scripture is [not] given by Inspiration of God.” II Tim.3:16.
A REVIVAL OF THE BIBLICALLY
THE WORLD AND WILL BE MET
WITH VIOLENT OPPOSITION
“THE CHILDREN OF WRATH” (Eph.2:3)
The last message of Jesus Christ to a dying
world is the message of Revelation 18. But the knowledge of this message is still to this day being withheld from humanity
by the rulers of Christianity itself. Flattering themselves by using methods fostering condescension, wearing robes of illusionary
righteousness, holding arrogant titles such as Reverend and Father: titles the Bible forbids men to use (Ps.111:9; Matt.23:9),
it is all an illusion of contribution to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition it deserves to be publicized that the right
arm of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is His medical missionary work. This is proven by the Bible Fact that 50% of Christ’s
ministry was medical care. Today, coordination between the Gospel work with medical care within Christendom is non-existent
among all mainstream denominations, being evidenced by all of the church’s A.M.A. run hospitals who push more pharmaceuticals
than healthy remedies. As a result of denying Christ’s balanced ministry, the gospel work is literally crippled.
example of Christ was the perfect and clear counsel to unite doctors and pastors to work hand-in-hand to the physical and
spiritual healing of men. In the early centuries of the Church, Christianity upheld this principle. They, blessed of the LORD
of salvation, were the great educators, scientists, engineers, doctors, etc. But then came the rise of the Roman Catholic
and Islamic religions. Coming to power in the 6th and 7th Centuries both were raised up by the devil himself (Rev.13:2) to
defeat the momentum of the work of Christ in the Earth (Rev.9:1-12). These selfish religions of tyranny and disobedience to
the Sacred Law have always and will always serve Satan. For they preserve both Satan’s continued pleasure in torturing
life via defiling the image of GOD in man. In the west, Rome worked tirelessly to destroy the Commandment keeping Waldensian
Christians, by sending conquering tyrants to all nations who refused papal supremacy, while Islam was raised up to destroy
the church of the East while conquering all who stood in their way.
But at last, the LORD raised up the United States of America and her Constitutional liberties that stand as the world’s
bulwark against religious tyranny. And He patiently worked through the freewills of man to revive this principle of uniting
the Gospel with medical care among His children. But it was effectively amputated when the American Medical Association seized
control over medical care, whose allopathic medicine is nothing short of the controlled poisoning of life.
Rather than build nature’s arsenal to fortify
good health through the eight laws of health delineated in Scripture man has instead chosen to employ elements that are destructive
to life itself. It is no different than the pesticides we use to treat crops: everything they touch they kill. In the long
run they do more harm than good. In summation, the Christian leaders in choosing to follow the methods of the carnal world,
replaced GOD’S perfect and practical counsel with the corrupt judgment of unconverted sinful men (Deut.18:9).
Over 3,400 years ago we were warned to not allow
any worldly jurisdiction to overrule the purposes of GOD (Lev.26; Deut.28). Had the church honored the path marked out by
Christ, innovations of medical standards would have brought tremendous glory to GOD through His faithful people. Doors would
have opened for the cures for all disease, without the harmful side effects of pharmaceuticals that have literally crippled
the minds and bodies of hundreds of millions of people while sapping every dime of their life’s savings (I Tim.6:10)!
True Missionary Medicine would have stood in
the place of preeminence in the eyes of the world! This would have been the most effective means to discourage any attempts
to malign the motives of GOD’S people when such practical contributions to alleviate disease and suffering were seated
at the helm of the Church. But this door of GOD’S blessing to His children has been shut since the days of bloodletting!
Despite the disgrace of Christendom‘s abandonment of Biblical Truth, it is not too late for those with spiritual discernment
to return to the very work the LORD ordained to be His instrument to heal the suffering of Earth (Jer.3:13), and especially
during the closing work when the rise of disease erupts upon our society in pandemic levels. The rates of increase in disease
are too dramatic to ignore the needs of people in this area of practical ministry. Missionary Medicine must be in place that
it may take the helm of medical care where conventional medicine betrays the trust of ailing souls.
The government-endorsed enemies of this work are of such primitive
ignorance and tyrannical character, a legal system has been devised that guards against any attempt to reform it. There is
no public outcry to address the abuses of government who endorse the acceptable murder of life (for the so-called greater
good) in allowing agribusinesses to corrupt the genetic forces of life, producing crops with pesticides built in while destroying
age-old methods building on bio-diversity for true sustainability. Government also allows chemical corporations and industries
to continue turning large areas of the sea into massive dead zones.
And the greatest spiritual danger: They allow pharmaceuticals that literally retard the mental processes of the mind
so that it cannot hear the voice of GOD to make wise decisions, and whose side-effects always create new and multiple ailments,
thus, requiring more pharmaceuticals. Patients have been known to take 40 different pills every day to combat the multiple
afflictions that each has caused. Corporations have become so bold that they are now patenting life, treating the intricate
genetic structure of GOD’S created life like its real estate. These modern prospectors declare that whatever they find
on their land (a certain strand of genes) is theirs and theirs alone. All these corruptions are now sweeping over the natural
world, literally dismantling the balance of nature in every conceivable way.
There is a simple lesson exposing the danger of this way of thinking. Every time a species has crossed from one part
of the planet to another, disastrous results are always seen. This obvious illustration is being ignored by the profiteering
scientific community by their introducing manmade life to local ecosystems. But what will be the result of man’s meddling
with and overruling the laws of the natural world? The Bible answers: “thy wrath is come,…and shouldest destroy
them which destroy the earth.” Rev.11:18.
By professed Christians turning to unconverted worldly policy, every hospital claiming to serve Christ defeats the
very purpose of its existence. Therefore, GOD’S approbation does not exist in any A.M.A. run medical institution. The
statistics of malpractice makes them culpable to murder, which is a tragic sin. In fact, the leading cause of death in America
is through A.M.A. run medicine! GOD has to work His salvation within this corrupt regime masquerading in the guise of virtue.
And while there are wonderful unselfish people throughout the ranks of every station of life the prevailing protocol of underfunding,
understaffed and overworking employees guarantees the harsh statistics of repeated failure on the part of the medical establishment
in its relationship with both GOD and man. There is no smile on GOD’S face because unfaithfulness to the rudiments of
salvation permeates throughout the medical ranks: even those heralding Christian values.
ITS NOT TOO LATE FOR MEN
NOT THE UNCLEAN THING.” II Cor.6:17
The closing work of Christ is to be a united
work. Fact: there exists no equality between the various branches of the gospel work, when the counsel was perfect, that by
GOD’S intended design, equal value and wage was to exist between doctors, ministers, literature evangelists and missionaries
(Acts 2:42-47, 10:34), thereby creating symmetry within the various branches of the work, that none would feel superior or
inferior to the position of another. This would have shut the door on the temptations of pride, resentment and suspicion between
the different areas of the Gospel work; and this would have greatly streamlined the time it takes to finish the gospel commission,
thereby bring the suffering of Earth to a close. To bless one area of the work to the neglect of another is the sin of partiality
(Ja.2:1-5). “For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the
messenger of the LORD of hosts. But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted
the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people
[atheists, etc.], according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.” Mal.2:7-9. Atheism would
never have gotten off the ground in social acceptance if the church had done her duty.
Men, past and present,
under the tutelage of Satan, have blindly circumvented GOD’S call to the methods that will bring the largest numbers
of men, women and children to His salvation. Instead, they “shut up the kingdom of heaven against men” as the
Savior warned in His day. And in the prophetic sense Christ’s words apply throughout history. This is verified by The
LORD addressing the oldest injustice on Earth, going back to the first righteous son of Adam, Abel: “The righteous perisheth,
and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the
evil to come.” Isa.57:1.
rejection of “Thus saith the LORD” has caused every calamity to befall the life of Earth. And the religious leaders
then and today refuse to acknowledge the Saviour’s declaration: “ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place
in you.” “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish
man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that
house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were
astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” Matt.7:26-29; Jn.8:37.
As already reviewed and Biblically verified:
had the church done her duty Christ could have already come a long time ago and brought the suffering of earth to a close
(Matt.24:14; II Pet.3:12). The church’s procrastination only sustains the continued suffering of life and increases
the loss of souls for the kingdom of heaven. And the longer the church postpones GOD’S command to obey the Gospel commission
the greater the loss and suffering will be! It is no different than ignoring the symptoms of disease in the human body: the
longer it is allowed to fester the more difficult it is to overcome. It may be factually stated that corporate Christianity’s
administrative protocol promotes the continuing echo of the howling agony radiating from this world: the suffocating anguish
experienced by trillions of creatures that only GOD can hear. It is because of the suffering and death of life that GOD commands
every Christian to adhere to Scripture’s absolutes, and cooperate with His Spirit and holy angels to bring this global
scourge of life’s suffering to an end.
THE AGE-OLD REMEDY TO RESTORE
THE PRESENCE OF GOD INTO
So what does the LORD say? How do we approach Him in the manner
in which true reformation can come, and a new wave of GOD’S power of deliverance can begin to awaken the church from
its slumber and sweep over the land the good news of a better world, a world without sin, suffering or death? “If they
shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and
that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the
land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember;
and I will remember the land.” Lev.26:40-42.
We simply need the humility to corporately repent of the
sins that have held back the coming of the LORD, and acknowledge our share of contributing to every affliction experienced
of the last 150 years. Daniel’s prayer of repentance, even repenting for the sins he had no part in, deserves an awakening
in the Church (Dan.9:5). These are sins the LORD is eager to lavish His forgiveness. But the church and the world have chosen
another way to salvation. To be meek is viewed as weak. Nevertheless, those who understand the two branches of the human family:
one being “in Adam” and the other “in Christ,” deeply appreciate GOD’S answer to our need of
divine rescue and our corporate posture of regret for all the harm that sin has caused.
The church cannot afford to shun the command of heaven to share the matchless love of Christ with the common man. The
church can only prove its love to Christ and man by its implicit obedience to the Ten Commandments. This love includes our
warning every man and woman of the Earth’s utter destruction and how GOD has ordained the world to fall because man
refuses to repent of sin. But cradled within the warning is the promise that GOD has also provided a way of escape! The sinner
does not have to perish with this present world! When GOD commanded the prophets to speak in His Name, and they were repeatedly
murdered for carrying out GOD‘S Word, did they not have love in their hearts for those trapped in the bondage of sin?
Did they not desire to see them secure in eternal safety. Did they not love GOD so deeply regardless of the cost to their
lives fully knowing that the GOD Who bid His prophets to speak would be treated with hatred and violence? None can claim to
love their fellow man and at the same time withhold the counsel the LORD has blessed His People with to minister to all of
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so
let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for GOD loveth a cheerful giver.” For “the goodness of GOD leadeth
thee to repentance.” II Cor.9:7; Rom.2:4.
In closing: All are not called to the same work or to the same talent as Paul expounded so beautifully (I Cor.12).
But the LORD is raising up men from around the globe who have begun this closing work of the Gospel with all its branches,
providing Scripture’s counsel and life support for the LORD’S faithful in the days ahead. As Noah built an ark
to preserve the life that GOD commanded him to watch over, so the church is called to build another ark: a safe-haven to preserve
the lives of His children while they wait for the coming of the LORD as it is written, “But as the days of Noe were,
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matt.24:37.
