The Godly Will Be Silenced, the Mantra of the Age

I have been studying and teaching Bible doctrine for over 48 years and the shepherding teacher for home based Churches. Sola Scriptura

A Brain Fit for God's Cleansing of the Church.

The Wicked - A Rod in God's Hands.

Isaiah 10:5-6a "O Assyrian, the "rod (whipping stick) of Mine anger, and the staff in their hand is Mine indignation. I will send him against a hypocritical nation...)"

Of course, this is God dealing with the idolatrous northern tribes of Israel; but could this be the fate of the church here in America? Ask yourself - How is our worship of money, peace and prosperity or of the men who shovel these doctrines down the throats of those who eagerly desire the benefits of religion across this great nation of ours? We are instructed to "...come out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord ..." and yet the masses of true believers in America are solidly ensconced within denominations and assemblies having grown dull of hearing and too comfortable with the status quo. A perfect storm is brewing and the majority are blind, deaf and dumb; surely to taken by complete surprise.

A little history about the ancient Assyrians. They were the "inventors" of crucifixion as a method of torturous execution, only later to be perfected by the Romans on a much larger scale. When transporting captives on foot, they not only tied them together but put a large meat hook in the mouth, under the tongue and out the lower jaw; then tied the hook to the neck of the person in front of them, ensuring no one would try to run away or have a tendency to drag their feet. For the uncooperative, the weak or sickly, they would lay them on the ground and pull a threshing sledge over them turning them into human fertilizer. You may ask, why did I bring up such gruesome details. Simple: we are a stiff-necked people and when God separates the wheat (true Christians) from the chaff, too many will attempt to tarry and succumb as Lot's wife, remembering the good old days of easy believism. The return of our Lord is at hand and He shall have a purified Church whether we like it or not.

The American "Church" - Fuel for The Hatred of God.

Quotes from so-called Christian leaders concerning the recent presidential election stating that God or that the church miraculously showed up as the reason for Trump's resounding victory, truly bypasses the sovereignty of God in the affairs of man. Romans 13:1 "...For there is NO power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." ALL previous administrations were ordained by God according to His perfect will and His design for the consummation of history - the END draws near. It may be true that more church going people were compelled to vote in this election but it took years of un-American political and social behavior to bring them out of their selfish comfort zones. The wicked were becoming more wicked and the people needed a champion to stem the tide … voila … out of nowhere steamrolls Donald Trump into the fray. Now fairy-tale like, the wrongs will be righted, order and safety restored and Happy-Valley will once again be happy. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Hatred for Christians in this country has always existed and has been openly growing more and more public for the last few decades. This election, opened Pandora's Box.

As I have written before concerning this election, the true Christian is to pray for leaders that will allows US to live "...a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty." God took a slumbering Bride, roused her from her comfortable bed to exercise a God given right within our nation to place His man of the hour into power. Unbeknownst to the Bride, the beginning of the cleansing of God's own is about to begin. I believe there will be a time to rejoice and revel in the positive of the nation's new found direction and its leadership, but it will short-lived.

A Gentle and Meek Jesus!

Why Does The Church Need A Cleansing?

First things first: the American church has been an accepted, admired, trusted and productive member of society for many years, an institution that the majority of the citizenry looked up to: much to our eternal shame. "And ye shall be hated of ALL men for My name's sake:.." Matthew 10:22 The Gospel was never to be popular, it was to be the Truth: the few would receive gladly but the many would reject. To the American church's disgrace, we have favored being acceptable to the masses and have strayed from the great Commission abandoning the living Gospel and its power to save. Secondly, we have left the sheep of His pasture in the wake of spiritual ignorance as the power of the Word to transform has been watered down to make it more palatable for the unsaved and uncalled among us.

My axiom: If it attracts the world - it is the ungodly cloaked in the guise of religion.

  • The church has abandoned the meat of God's Word and have left the sheep starving for the Truth. Just keep the milk flowing and the sheep will grow accustomed to their diet but rest assured, the Lord will never let them be fully satisfied. For once they taste meat, a whole new world will open up and the questions will flow from them, needing answers. This I have seen personally and the sheep will seek pastures in which to be fed. Sadly many will have to turn to radio, TV and heaven help us - the internet.
  • I recently saw an article on how Christian hip-hop can make your church service more relevant to today's crowds. In other words, how can we draw more of the ungodly into our midst and further degrade our supposed worship? I chose not to read the article for obvious reasons to me, but I can imagine that there are people that will buy that satanic dribble, hook, line and sinker. The youth movement in the late 60's into the 70's destroyed much of what the true Church once showed forth. Music and dress became self-centered, immodesty has become common place and a time of worship had been replaced by a form of entertainment.
  • Money, follow the money. "...hath not God chosen the POOR of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of Kingdom...?" James 2:5 Once upon a time within this country, instead of food stamps and assistance from the government, the people depended upon faith based institutions to provide in the time of need. Today the wealth of the American church in land and in personal holdings is staggering, yet we have among our own assemblies many in dire need but the church's resources are not readily available. We have become fat, lazy and nearly dead to the true Gospel. Something drastic needs to happen.

If you are not dead and have noticed the reaction of the left to results of a new president; they have conceded no ground in their agenda. In past elections the losing parties have usually consigned themselves to plotting and planning how they can work within the system to keep their agenda alive and work toward changing the outcome to next election. Not this time, ...and... the church is the main culprit in their current political demise. For them to succeed in their wickedness, the church must be silenced or least shackled and muzzled. I would expect lawsuits from the more cowardly of their cadre and outward violence from the indwelling anarchists against pastors, congregations and all who defy their immoral agenda. Maybe we are starting to see what it was like in the last days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Christian, be of good cheer - Jesus is still on the throne and His Bride is the apple of His eye.

      I approved your comment, not because I fully agree with you but that you typify the confusion among those who confess themselves as Christians play both sides of the issue. No unbeliever has free will and never will; as Jesus said, "you do the will of your father, the devil". Only a believer can have free will because the Holy Spirit and the Word convict us of what is righteous and yet we too often choose to the opposite. The unbeliever may know social norms, which may touch upon that which is right, and may think they have their own will but it is not of God. What is not of God, is of the devil and is the spirit of lawlessness. My God is absolutely sovereign in the affairs of man and He will have mercy upon whom He chooses and harden the hearts of whom He chooses. Earthly issues must be filtered by the purity of the Word and one day in heaven, I may begin to understand how unfathomable my God is. Another thing, I like your passion - too many do not know what to think and don't even try.

      My point is the Godly do not see politics but issues. I do not believe all Liberals are Godless with an agenda to destroy Religion. I see a church that is condemning its self by claiming that wicked people seeking National Socialismn in a Nation of immigrants is a smart idea. The idea will condemn the church like the catholics embracing the Natzi's. It is a smarter idea to condemn evil then to bring it upon yourself. We are not of this World and should not embrace Earthly agendas over the purpose of heaven. Do you not find it odd that the people of god escaping persecution came to this land and demanded that people of free will must be Christains. Even after they converted they were still not good enough because they were to black or brown to be seen as fellow believers. You demand missionarys every where but condemn fellow believers in your own country. Where is the wisdom the Bible teaches us? A Leopard does not change its spots because it won power. It believes it can do anything because it escaped judgement. So willing to judge others based on what? I do not see anyone attacking believers but defending the individual rights of all people. Of course they attack God everyday but embracing evil when no good choices existed in the promise of what? Trump is not a good person and does not believe in any God that I know. He believes in wealth and believes he can attain it by pretending to believe in God. What he brings you is the persecution that you bring to others. I am begining to believe that some Liberals in terms of humanity are better Christains. The Political parties have not done one thing Godly in decades. I oppose abortion but the Republicans are using that argument to simply get your vote. Anyone in this argument knows you have to pass an amendment to the Constitution that protects the life of an unborn child. To get that you must allow any individual who is raped, may die or have a severely damaged child to make their own decision on having a child. All of them are between the individual and God and a major debate even if you studied the Bible. Just as important is to recognize that we live among those of free will and we always will and have on Earth. You have to allow birth control and women the access and ability to health to enforce such a law. We can not even grant women equality on such issues is pathetic. We can only survive by demanding that all people have choices including the unborn. The new welfare state is child support and alimony. Denying men their rights is the next battle. Demanding that no one is forced into the servitude of the state is already here. The war against the church started the day it began. Even Jesus had to kick out the money lenders and tell the leaders of the day that they were practicing nothing. They enjoyed sitting at the end of the table and telling everyone else what to do.

      Knowing that the "Church" shall be judged before all else - we will all come to understand our Lord's words when He said, "the first shall be last and the last shall be first." Those "esteemed" by modern church standards, I believe are going to be in for a rude awakening as there will be an accounting required and those who have considered themselves as least in the Kingdom may be pleasantly surprised. As you said, I cannot stand in anyone else's place but my own and it is His acceptance I crave, not the plaudits of this world. God bless.

      This is the result of a spiritually imature World of so called believers that have sold themselves out to seek the Earthly agendas of this World. Not seeking the Heavenly purpose to redeem ourselves they will fail the test and sell out for hate, false leaders who promise nothing, and their own faith when retribution follows. They will believe that taking that mark will protect them and their agendas on Earth. They will not be strong enough to defend the souls of others and bear witness to evil and be an example to God. They will fail to sit in the den with the lions but instead be devoured. I do not fear the end of this World and dying is going to happen regardless of what happens to me. To bring out the best in people sometimes requires the worst in others to seperate them. We have to practice what we believe and define are beliefs regardless of consequence. We live in purgatory and must accept the failings of free will even if its are own believers who practice nothing. Defending all individual rights if we agree or not is both our doom and ability to survive. Its always been a secular society and often times I wonder if even the institution we have are no different then the one Jesus kicked out the money lenders from. We have to seek Heavenly agendas over Earthly ones to redefine our purpose. We have to actually practice what we believe in our daily lives. We can not fear the retribution of those who have no beliefs but be willing to be examples. We can not condemn are failings of this sick world by condemning ourselves. We can only try to mature and learn that seeking what is good will lead us to such ideas of righteousness. We can never claim perfection or use our standings to judge others because we are not them. We must seek spiritual maturity because it works but it takes time. Any descision to support evil is no decision at all. We should only see souls and start from their.

      Well put; but I am finding more and more like minded believers who see the fake being purged or brought to light so as to cause the godly to separate themselves. The fight ain't over yet.

      You have many valid points that no one want to hear right now. It is a battle against the incoming vs the outgoing. The disciple needs to not be distracted by what is going on over on the wide path. We can see it from the narrow way we are trying to continue on but the distractions are many and everything going on is "FAKE" and distorted.
