Hearing from God part 5
So the previous introduction to part 5 is pretty grim.... but Christians do seem to be somewhat befuddled about who God is.... and it all boils down to the symptoms discussed in the Post Christian syndrome... I don't know about you, but cold chills go all over me every time I even think of Post Christian anything... I mean "post______" means " after_______ " like post war etc. Yet we are living in the Post Christian era.. I mean just look how much more Christian persecution is happening now, not only the world, but here in the US. Christians are losing their voice. Everyone else has the right to speak and expect government and society to cater to their belief system.. or lack of one, which in itself is still a belief system. But Christians more and more face an uphill battle in the marketplace or in the media .... because we are deemed not tolerant, we are not accepting.. we are out of the main stream thinking, therefore our voice is to be opposed. Why has this happened? We've allowed it, firstly... we have given in to pressure.... we have given satan license to control us. And he appears to be winning. Well, when we are faithful children of God... we can not be tolerant... He is the One true way.. there is no other! His Truth is absolute! We stand on His word alone, no matter what society or government says... Because God is the highest authority. This corrupt world has turned itself over to immoral, corrupt, deceptive, satan who is our enemy, and that puts us out of the main stream, but we still must stand for Truth, righteousness, and the Way. But for far too long the church has been silent. We have been inactively hiding the light of Christ under our basket so that the darkness has taken over our communities, our states, our nation! Is it too late? I pray not.. for as long as God still speaks to His children, chides them, to do something.. testing them to see if they will follow through and actually do something, there is hope.As I have been writing this section, I am realizing there is no formula to make things better... wouldn't that be great if you could cook up a recipe and things would be different... but change is possible, but it isn't a physical change in the true sense... it all begins internally. for unfortunately there are rotten potatoes in the bin.... me and you! We need healing and transformation from the inside out before we can truly create a change by the power of the Holy Spirit. I am going to leave here now because if you re following along with me.... I think we both need to come to grips with our own rottenness. What should I have done that I didn't do? How could my life during the last several years made a difference for God. Until each one of us can admit our own folly in this nothing with change.. because what we must do to begin this internal work is not going to be easy, but we've got towant it more badly than anything we've ever wanted. Spend some time in soul searching and prayer until next time!
