Could it not be that among the populace of the Christian community, there has been an overlooking of certain sins. These sins dwell among us to hinder the fulfilling of the promised blessings of our God. Meanwhile, those of the communist world have said that the nations of the west, those living under a democratic government, could not be defeated or know destruction in a face-to-face conflict. Therefore, the challenge against democracy changed to become a mind-set of infiltrating democratic governments from within. With these so called sleeper cells and individuals, wicked and unscrupulous men of communistic, socialistic and humanistic beliefs, beliefs that promote evil which is the evil that calls good – evil and evil – good, have been working from within. Has it not been working? Likewise, a like kind mind-set is against the blood washed, blood bought family of God, that which is the church. While God’s power is available to protect each Christian individually, as well as collectively, God has allowed the enemy the right to infiltrate whenever a door opens to give him entry. How many are leaving a door open to allow this enemy to enter? In this, carnal mind-sets have infiltrated the church to deceive and mislead her.
This access has been because humanity, without God’s spirit, is of a natural, fleshly makeup and 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 first over all of man’s make-up, all of man’s desires. The desires, emotions, will, and mind of this carnal man encompass the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. Therefore, these areas of man’s make-up are ruling over them, with the promised great darkness that has invaded the Christian community exists.
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, lines them up with the concept of a one world government and religion? A one world government and religion ruled over, not by God, but by the carnal mind-set, which states, “let us minister a gospel that offends none, and let us minister a gospel that includes all things, regardless of the mind-set and life-style, under the banner of establishing a world of peace among all people.” Is this a workable solution 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, the true government of God is established. 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 what Adam chose to do, that which caused his fall?
Jeremiah, the prophet of God standing among the people of Israel, with them having a like mind-set as the Christian community (save a few) of today 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”. (Jer. 7:8-11). 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 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”. (Jer. 7:12-14).
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 it as having God’s blessing, it is really an abomination? Irregardless of some of the greatest promotional advertising campaigns that are going on, campaigns that lead society, little by little, to be convinced as permissive and just, 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 the 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 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.” (Jer. 11:9-10). The world is at a time of great change. First, 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 comes, and in the midst of it, there seems to be 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.” (Jer. 11:11-12).
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 gross darkness is 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 the worldwide political correctness promoting evil and religious systems that promote sin, as they stand in God’s righteousness. This righteousness is that which comes from hearing the words of God and standing in obedience to that uncompromising word. Isa. 51:3, “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 self shall come down. Are they not even now crumbling beneath their feet? Their synthetic security is now 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 the worlds systems of what seems to be successful, into their own orders and are calling it good. However, down comes their world – up comes the kingdom of God. Rev. 11:15b, “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 as God’s purposes began to exist on the earth in that full measure, because a people have began to see the truth and reality of who and what God is. These, no longer duped into believing in the shadows of emptiness that the carnal church has promoted. The spiritual blind are promoting shadows of emptiness because the blind among them are leading the blind among them. Nevertheless, from out of Zion, 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 is 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. Changed because this people are of the mind-set that God is not just a God of the future waiting for a certain futuristic date to see and know Him and doubting it will ever come. Their mind-set is one 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 and 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 is among us.
