“10 And the Lord said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon your face?
11 Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My Covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.
12 Therefore the Children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except you destroy the accursed from among you.” Joshua 7:10-12
God could not bless Israel because of sin and He cannot bless us now if there is sin in our heart. The accursed thing among many is the gospel of which they have accepted. It is a corrupt gospel which has no power to expel the sin within our hearts and lives but instead condones sin.
“8 But though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8-9
The modern church has no power against the enemy because it is accursed. 40 days of purpose, 21 days of fasting and the various other vain philosophies have corrupted the gospel and made it into another which is being preached from the pulpits as Biblical doctrine.
“8 This people draws nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honors Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.
9 But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:8-9
The power of God is in the Cross of Christ Jesus. It is there, at Calvary that Jesus Christ defeated death, hell and the grave. The Believer who is buried with Him; Baptized into His Death by simple faith in HIS finished work, gives the Holy Spirit latitude to do a mighty work in their heart and lives which guarantees the victory in which every Born Again Believer seeks.
“3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His Death?
4 Therefore we are buried with Him by Baptism into Death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His Death, we shall be also in the likeness of His Resurrection:” Romans 6:3-5
It is IN Christ Jesus that our sin nature is isolated by the power of the Holy Spirit and we are given the latitude to live unto God and partake in His Divine Nature. Another gospel accursed by God does not afford the Believer the power of the Holy Spirit to superintend the work of God in our heart.
The accursed thing of which so many have embraced, myself too at one point in my life, must be revealed, rejected and repented of speedily. As the world waxes worse, we are seeing more and more people who have been under this accursed gospel confounded. Their foundation has washed away in the raging storms…and they’re not going to slow down. The Lord is opening the eyes of many. They have been on the fence for too long and have turned a blind eye to this other gospel that has been brought to the people of God. They have allowed it and many have died both spiritually and physically because of such. It’s high time the church repent. It’s high time those who have ears to hear come out from among these apostate churches and be ye separate.
The Lord is separating the wheat from the tares as Believers all over the world are beginning to stand up for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. As they are going back to the old paths, the narrow way is becoming clearer and clearer. There is room on that narrow path for whosoever will believe. Jesus Christ is standing at the door knocking. Can you hear His still small voice?
