“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5
This is a description of the endtimes church, the church of Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22). Their form of godliness blinds them to their wretched, miserable, poor and naked condition.
“This people draw nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honors Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.” Matthew 15:8
The Scriptures do not teach an endtime revival in the church. Sadly, many in the pews of the endtimes church fail to see the “endtimes harvest” that is declared from their pulpits is actually speaking of themselves, the apostate church, and Jesus Christ stands OUTSIDE the door knocking. Deception opens the door to more deception and they are swept to and fro with every wind of doctrine looking to a revival to deliver them from their bondages while Jesus stands at the door knocking.
“For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:17-18
Jesus Christ broke the power of sin in the Believer’s life. His finished work on Calvary’s Cross IS the Power of God unto us which are saved. The Holy Spirit is not commissioned to free us from the law of sin and death when we are looking to an endtime revival for deliverance. As we look unto Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith, the Holy Spirit is commissioned to come and set us free…and if the Lord Jesus Christ makes you free, you shall be free indeed!
“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until He receive the early and latter rain. Be you also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.” James 5:7-8
So many are standing at the foot of the religious institutions being entertained by the seductive music and vain philosophies of man crying out to God for deliverance. Their yoke is heavy and keeps getting heavier as they desperately look for revival in the endtime apostate church.
I want you to know friends, the Spirit of God IS pouring out His Spirit on His Sons and Daughters. As many turn away from the mere form of godliness they have walked in for untold years and take hold of the Cross of Christ to break the power of sin in their lives, they are beholding the Power of God….the sustaining Power of God, the Power of God that keeps us through the trials and tribulations. The Power of God that will endue, redeem, reconcile and keep us to the uttermost because Jesus Christ ever lives to make intercession for us.
There is an apostate, endtime church. If you do not see this, it is because you have been blinded by the deception. They have a form of godliness but are not of God…from such turn away. Establish you hearts; for the coming of the Lord draws near.
