Could it be, that among the populace of today’s Christian community, there has been an overlooking of certain sins. Could it be, that these sins are that which dwell among us to hinder the fulfilling of the promised blessings of our God. Meanwhile, concerning this same principle, history shows us that those of the communist and socialistic world have said that the nations of the west, those living under a democratic government, could not be defeated nor know destruction in a face-to-face conflict. Therefore, the challenge against democracy changed to become one with a mind-set of infiltrating democratic governments from within. With these so called sleeper cells of evil individuals, wicked and unscrupulous men of communistic, socialistic and humanistic beliefs, are being promoted to leadership positions. These are those who call evil good while calling good evil. These have purposed to corrode our foundation as they work from within our nation. Has it not been working?
Likewise, a like kind mind-set has been purposed against the blood washed, blood bought family of God, that which is called the church. While God’s power is available to protect each Christian individually, as well as collectively, God has allowed the enemy a right to infiltrate whenever a door is opened by man to give him entry. How many are leaving a door open that allows this enemy to enter? In this, carnal mind-sets have infiltrated the church to deceive and mislead her. In this, certain sins exist among the church has robbed her of having lasting victory.
This access has been available because humanity, without God’s spirit, is one of a natural, fleshly makeup. Therefore, man’s tendency is to allow the carnal, fleshly mind to dictate and resist God when and if the spiritual mind of Christ does not operate. Humanity’s tendency is to allow carnality to rule because self continues to desire and remain in the place of being his own god, with a desire to build his own kingdom. In this mind-set, man promotes self above all else, that self might remain foremost over all of man’s make-up, all of his desires. The desires, emotions, will, and mind of this carnal man are fruits of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. Meaning that these areas of man’s make-up are ruling over them and the promised great darkness that has invaded the Christian community exist.
Except for a few, when compared to the whole, the Christian community itself is leaning in the direction of putting aside standard biblical truths and replacing them with the carnal minded concepts of a carnal society. Could it be that the changing interest of the Christian community, except for a remnant, also lines them up with the concept and thinking of a one world government and religion? A one world government and religion ruled over, not by God, but by man’s carnal mind-set. This mind-set states, “let us minister a gospel that offends none, and let us minister a gospel that includes all things legal. Thus, establishing, regardless of the mind-set and life-style, a living under the banner of establishing a world of false prosperity and peace among all people.”
Is this a workable solution as to what ails the world and its people? Not on your life, it is but a pipe dream that shall go up in smoke. A smoke that will blow away as the wind of God’s Holy Spirit and the true government of God is released to establish His kingdom. Because humankind, as a whole, has put their trust in the deceiving lies that promote injustice over the entire globe, judgment is now at the door. The religious world is now standing without God’s leadership because man has rejected Him for the sake of his own self, becoming his own god, and directing his own paths. Is this not what Adam choosing to do, caused his fall?
Jeremiah, the prophet of God, as he stood among the people of Israel, with the Christian community having a like-kind mind-set (save a few) today has declared,
“Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, we are delivered to do all these abominations? Has this house, which is called by my name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it, says the Lord”.
In this, God is offering proof from past judgments as to His unwillingness to allow sin and corruption to dwell in His house. How then can the church of today expect a reprieve without such judgment?
Judgment shall come; the religious system shall fall and become desolate as God’s mercy comes to judgment.
“But go now to My [God’s]place which was in Shiloh where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel. And now, because you have done all these works says the Lord, and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer, therefore I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to this place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh”.
Can we not see, those who are looking for the Christ to come among us, a system of activities taking place in the world that promotes darkness while calling it light? Can we not see a system that promotes a life-style of permissiveness even while they call it “being saved”? Can we not see that alternate life-styles, while gaining a common ground in declaring and promoting itself as having God’s blessing, it is really an abomination? Regardless of some of the greatest promotional advertising campaigns that are going on, campaigns that led society, little by little, to be convinced these abominations as being permissive and allowable. God’s word calls these life-styles an abomination in unrighteousness. Woe is unto those who, even from some of the pulpits, are calling evil good, because now judgment is come and the Christ is appearing. A remnant of people shall stand in these last days and in standing, a kingdom of true righteousness will know its establishment unto full manifestation.
God is even now declaring to a people, awake, awake people of Zion and observe. Even as these same conditions existed among the children of Israel, there is a like-kind conspiracy going on today. Again, Jeremiah is used by God to declare,
“And the Lord said to me, a conspiracy has been found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers who refused to hear my words, and they have gone after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.”
The world is at a time of great change. First, along with political corruptness (calling it being politically correct), the carnal minded church system is in a place of distress, a distress that is the fruit of their unfaithfulness. Thus, the calamity that comes is among us and in the midst of it, there seems to be, among the many, no help.
“Therefore thus says the Lord: behold, I will surely bring calamity on them which they will not be able to escape; and though they cry out to Me, I will not listen to them. Then the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will go and cry to the gods to whom they offer incense, but they will not save them at all in the time of their trouble.”
However, what about God’s true church that is in God and therein are establishing God’s kingdom? While darkness has been on the increase, for it has come to the point wherein the world is full of darkness and with gross darkness being in the minds of the people. But we, God’s people, can willfully praise our God for He is the light. In being the light, He has for Himself a people, a people of light who shall enlighten this world of darkness with the glory of God. These dare to resist the pressures of worldwide political correctness that promotes evil and the religious systems that promote permissive sins, with these enlighten ones standing in God’s righteousness. This righteousness is that which comes from hearing the words of God and standing in obedience to that uncompromising word.
“For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody”.
(Read Isa. 51:1-16).
The kingdoms which man has built for himself shall come down. Are they not even now crumbling beneath their feet? Their synthetic security is now being uncovered for what it is and their falsehoods are seen for what they are. Lies that promote falsehoods that have blinded the people. Blinded them in every aspect of Christ because many of the church groups have incorporated into their beliefs the systems of the world. In this they call it being successful and they are also calling it good. However, down comes their world – up comes the kingdom of God.
“The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.”
Rev. 15:3b – 4,
“Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the saints! Who shall fear You, O Lord, and glorify you name? For you alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before you, for your judgments have been manifested”.
Yes, God has for Himself a people, a people who are becoming His kingdom, in which He dwells. In dwelling within this people, all the insecurities of the carnal world are falling away as God’s purposes began to exist on the earth in a full measure. God’s purpose is manifesting because a people are beginning to see the truth and reality of who and what God is. These are no longer duped into believing in the shadows of emptiness that the carnal church has promoted. The spiritually blind have promoted nothing but shadows of emptiness because the blind among them are leading the blind. Nevertheless, from out of Zion (true church), we are seeing a great light. Revelation and understanding is breaking down the walls of deception as truth breaks forth to show us a real God who is in the now and not one that stands far off.
This is a now God who is actively involved with and is moving among the people who are becoming acquainted with Him personally and intimately. This God saves, delivers, heals, and supplies every need to bring change. Change because this people are of a mind-set that God is not just a God of the future. These are not just waiting around for a certain futuristic event to take place to see and know Him. In this, many of the carnal mind-set are even doubting that revealing event will ever come. Meanwhile, there are some who are of the mind-set that puts God here in the now. What does this mean? Its meaning is clear, which is, the kingdom of God has come, and it is now present tense. This God now dwells among and is in His people. To this, we say yea and amen as those with misplaced commitments are even now reconsidering and replacing their commitment to God’s true word. Truly, a change, even as God has purposed, is among us.
