Slowly getting on top of things here. I will try to, talk to you this evening. My trailer tire exploded this morning causing damage to the trailer as well, so a fair amount of work needed before I can get back on the road. The Lord got me to a safe place this morning, its a beautiful day and I sense His close presence despite the circumstances of the moment.
I know for sure brother that we must keep our minds sharply focused on the Lord in this present day and in the coming days. We are witness these days to things I never imagined we would see in our lifetimes. Yet most people do not even see it, as so many of the western churches are comfortable, apostate and neglect the true things of God and His Word. There are no morals, no absolutes anymore in our culture. Every man does what is right in his own eyes, including churches which are supposed to follow the God of the Bible, not the god of this world. I am taking a little time this morning to pray and seek God for His wisdom and guidance.
We as the faithful remnant see what is really going on in this world-hard and sad as it is even when family and loved ones seem oblivious to these things. I see the masses putting their hope in the things of this world- it's political systems and leaders, hope in their ability to prosper and hope in their ability to survive. I see churches getting increasingly weak and ineffective as they wander away from Truth and embrace the philosophies of man. Almost everyone I have known during my lifetime who once called themselves Christians I have seen wander away from the church and the God of the Bible, I am not judging these as to their salvation as that is only reserved for God to do. But what I do observe greatly concerns me brother.
As part of the faithful remnant today-it is well beyond anything I could have imagined when I became a born again believer back in 1979. All the various books and preachers that I enjoyed as a young Christian in the '80s, none of this stuff has happened that way. I remember Christian authors such as Hal Lindsey, the Left Behind series and many more. While this all stimulated my imagination, nothing has happened in the way these people have described. What really has happened is much different. The reality of what has happened is that TRUE BIBLICAL Christianity has been discredited and greatly damaged by the world and its systems, and the compromising church has let the world get away with this in the name of expediency, political correctness, and financial consideration.
This is where I think things stand today brother. This is a great and all important time to serve Him!
Love you brother.
