2019 – WEDNESDAY 18 DECEMBER
A REVIVAL OF TRUTH
We are about to see a great revival in the church – as God gathers His people back to Himself.
Some things to be changed.
A DEPENDENCE UPON POLITICS
The election of Donald Trump to the White House is due in no small part to the allegiance of the evangelical right.
Trump has been mooted as the Cyrus saviour of evangelical Christianity in the US.
I do believe he is God appointed for such a time as this.
However at what cost?
To trust in political favour – at the expense of moral uprightness is short sighted at best.
Cyrus was only used by God to give His people the opportunity to get their act together.
We Australians are very blessed to have been given a committed Christian to be our Prime Minister – but we must not leave the mission of the church to politics.
AN OBSESSION WITH ACCEPTANCE
The need for acceptance, rather than the desire to be the peculiar followers of Christ – is watering down Christianity to the point of being just another blend of ideologies.
A DESIRE FOR PERFORMANCE
With the lack of obedience and simplicity of worship to God as a lifestyle – has come the emergence of a generation of people who want to be entertained by church – rather than engaged in the mission of Christ to the lost.
Performance always leads to a loss of passion and power.
The absence of moral absolutes has led to the church witnessing the failure of many leaders to live in a godly manner.
A new generation is emerging who have never been taught – nor shown by example – the blessings of a covenant keeping God – toward an obedient and faithful people.
The absence of leaders staying the path and sacrificing for the greater good – has led to a generation of followers now enjoying convenient rather than covenant christianity.
RIPE FOR THE PICKING
The Alpha generation now emerging have no understanding of the great foundations of the faith.
They are taught pithy inspirational life principles – rather than obedience to the word of the Lord.
Grace and favour have replaced truth, humility and justice with disastrous consequences.
