FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2015 will go down as one of the more sadder days of America’s history. It is a day that should not have taken Apostolics by surprise, should not have devastated the church, it is simply part of end time events that must fulfill before Christ return. Never-the-less, it was a tragic day.
The future for the Apostolic church in America holds in its wings much trouble. This ruling by the Supreme Justices did much more than write into law that every state must allow same sex marriage, it opened the way for church persecution. Already from the president funneling down to special interest groups there is a push for all beliefs to come together and embrace the rights of homosexuality and same sex marriage. The enforcement of this ruling will began by challenging licensed ministers to perform these ceremonies. As we know, this community will not be satisfied with the Justice of the Peace performing their weddings.
The next step will then be hate speech regulation in our churches. There has already been a push for this, now momentum is in the favor of the gay communication to push this through.
I was questioned why couldn’t the Christian community simply accept the “equality” of gay rights, doesn’t Christ love everybody?
My reply: “This is not about equality. The gay agenda is not satisfied with equality, it has proven it wants everybody to conform to their mindsets, anything less is unacceptable. The true bible based Christian has a problem with any kind of support of homosexuality because the bible names it as an abomination that God hates. Christians don’t hate the sinner, but hates the sin just as all sin should be rejected. The Christian leaves the homosexual population alone, the problem is that the homosexual does not leave the Christians alone – they expect their rights to be enforced while denying that the Christian has any rights.”
The spirit of anti-Christ works manipulating, conditioning, and preparing the masses for tribulation living. It creates stress, pressure, and overwhelming anxiety that morphs into apathy, lathargicness, and insensitivity to this hour. The church is under chronic siege from worldly pleasure pressure as well as pressure to accept, conform, compromise, and tolerate modern day philosophy.
It is the age of futility. A pessimist summed it up: “the darkest, is right before it goes pitch black,” and that pretty much paints the picture of our world today.
It is the age of Laodicea, but all hope is not lost! This is the greatest hour of the church, a time when the church can and must be a light shining in this darkest hour.
We must be positioned to be the hospital for hurting people and to receive the harvest as individuals turn to the only hope there is – Jesus Christ and the Church of the Living God!
I’m not happy about the ruling of Friday, June 26th, but I know to look up my redemption drouth nigh! I’m not looking forward to the days ahead here on this earth, but I am beginning to say ‘even so Lord Jesus come quickly!’
This world is not our home we’re just traveling through. God help us in these final hours reach every lost honest hearted soul that can be reached. Help us Lord to reach our kids, our relatives, our friends and neighbors!
ROMANS 8:18-27 (KJV)
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
It is an illusion of hopelessness. This present trouble that we face can not compare to the glory that we shall attain! Our hope is not in this world that we see, but it is in our Lord Jesus Christ and the world yet to come!
We need Jesus like we have never needed Him before!
Jesus Is Coming Soon!
