Well it’s coming, and come. The church of ungod. Yesterday was an advent, a coming out party for the atheists who actually coveted what, at minimum, the pseudo christians had, and created their own church. I’d mentioned years ago, when I lived in the shadow of the FFR (freedom from religion) headquarters, that atheism is just a religion without God. They had their annual meetings with songs and preaching and someone there actually said, “it seems like church”. I showed last year that, by definition, atheists are religious and do, in fact, practice religion. Am I surprised? Nope. John spoke of this falling away in the Book of Revelation.
The christian Mega-churches have been watering down the Gospel for years to attract more people, be none offensive, keep everyone busy doing social projects. Even in the article, in justifying ungod mega churches,
“There was so much about it that I loved, but it’s a shame because at the heart of it, it’s something I don’t believe in,” Jones said. “If you think about church, there’s very little that’s bad. It’s singing awesome songs, hearing interesting talks, thinking about improving yourself and helping other people — and doing that in a community with wonderful relationships. What part of that is not to like?”
Sounds like Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church to me. These so called “seeker churches” have been taking the offense of the cross out of their message welcoming everyone without condemnation. So what of these fence teetering, marginal “seekers” who go just for the show and good feelings? Give them the same show, same music, same feelings and be even more “tolerant” by removing any condemnation and bring them in. A recent prophetic Word, “Not Ever“, given to Glynda Linkous speaks about the churches emptying, walking out on the One True God. The great falling away appears to be at our doorstep.
I’ve been challenged these weeks that we’ve been moved out to this farm, working and working and working to get it operational. Yet, all the while, we live in boxes with no furniture because God has withheld the sale of our house. Perhaps it is because we aren’t going to be here much longer. And such is our call and life in Christ, to serve and equip without expecting a personal return. Perhaps we’re readying the farm for someone else’s need should Christ call us soon. And I do believe that time is soon approaching. Prophetic Word has and is indicating a calling soon. Even secular events are ramping up in confirmation as Billy Graham finally comes out and concurs that events are lining up.
Time is short, and the warnings have been frequent and many that Christ is soon to call His redeemed church. Even as I look out my window and the snow signals the end of a season, soon, very soon this time on earth will be over. Are you ready? Or will you be left behind. There is no time to lose anymore. Christ has given a free gift of redemption. Take this free gift, accept His love and protection and use it wisely, or fall into the realm of the evil that is taking over this land.
