I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Praise the Lord!! The Lord is still good. He is still a very present help in trouble.
This virus has everything in turmoil. It is time to seek the Lord. Death is everywhere. Death is the vehicle that is used to carry the soul to its final destination. And, the final destination is not Heaven if a soul has not obeyed the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Bible says that repentance is to be preached. For a person has to repent in order to gain salvation. Sin has a price. And some of what we are seeing across the land is the result of sin. Mankind has turned its back on the God of creation. Mankind has refused the teachings of Jesus Christ. There is a price to pay to reject Christ.
John the Baptist came preaching repentance. The very first sermon Jesus preached was about repentance. Both of them said to 'repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.'(Matthew 3:2, 4:17)
Repentance is still the message that is to be preached. Not power. Not money. Not the wisdom of men. But repentance. Isaiah 58:1 says, "Cry loud, spare not, lift thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins." Isaiah 59:1 says, "behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear: Bu your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear."
Do you need to repent? Back sliders need to come back to the Church. Those that have heard the Gospel message and chose not to obey it need to obey and get saved. Repent before it is ever lasting too late!!
God calls for Holiness (Hebrew 12:14 and I Peter 1:16)
As a preacher when I look around and see all that is going on in the world today, especially with this virus, it lets me know that time is almost up and Jesus is coming back for His church and the sinner is going to go to hell. So. many reject holiness. The Bible says without it, no man shall see the Lord (Hebrew 12:14). Don't be afraid of the virus. Be afraid of dying without being converted.
Praise the Lord!! I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. The Lord is good. A very present help in trouble.
And this world is in trouble. The Church is too. The Bible says in Matthew 24:24, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Jesus said there will be false Christs. And some of what is being taught and preached to people is not the Christ of the Bible.
Jesus was/is the savior and deliverer. He came to set the captive free. Bible does teach that the government of the land has precedent over the Lord and what He commands His church to do. No where. When the church allows the laws of the land tell the church what it should do, know of a truth the law of the land will rule farther than what the Bible does say.
Those that make issues with a church building are looking at it all wrong. The people of God can meet anywhere. They just need to know where. Thus one of the reasons for having a location.
How long before the flesh gets comfortable being away from fellowship ship that it will no longer see a need to fellowship? How long before on line church is widely acceptable and expected?
As the scripture stated, if it were possible, the very elect will be fooled. And it is already started. My Lord.
