“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17
On October 31st, 2020 professing Christians all over the USA will celebrate Halloween. These celebrations will occur a mere 3 days before the most important Presidential election in the history of the United States of America. Many of these same Christians are the very ones calling on those who are called by the Name of the Lord to humble ourselves, turn from our wicked ways and the Lord will heal our land
I have a question for those Christians who are doing this. Please define wickedness? How do you celebrate Halloween one day and ask the Lord to heal our land the next?
“14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness?
15 And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that believes with an infidel?
16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the Living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:14-17
You either believe the Word of God to be true or you believe it to be a lie. Personal feelings regarding such things do not usurp what the Bible says. What you believe is between you and God, not you and me. As for me and my house, we choose Jesus. He dwells with me and walks with me. He is my God and I am His people. Yes, me…this imperfect vessel He chose to call by His Name because I chose to believe upon Him…upon Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
As for me, Jesus is the Source and His Cross the means by which I receive from the Lord and I fight daily the good fight of faith in the Cross of Christ. My flesh tries to hinder but I am persuaded that Jesus Christ can keep all that I have committed unto Him.
Personally, I don’t want any fellowship with darkness. The Lord delivered me from a word of faith church and He told me long ago that He got me out of there one time and if I went back I would be greatly deceived….and He would allow it. Some may call me “religious” but they don’t know what the Lord has brought me from. His praise will always be on my lips. He is the Lord Who Saves. He is the Lord Who delivers if we will only turn from our wicked ways according to what HE declares as wicked, not us.
Repent. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Turn from your wicked ways. Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will heal our land. Stop playing church and be the church.
