The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
I have noticed that there have always
been only one or two posting
in many of the Christian groups on the internet. More serious then that, I have noticed that few in our physical churches are doers of the Word. They are content with going to church but little more the that.
That alone is tragic. Shattered Men is
a highly controversial ministry and I have noticed that there are so many that
are locked into a comfort zone and they do not want to be disturbed.
Someone said there is a storm brewing in our own countries. They are so right, but too many Christians do not want to hear it.
They are "spiritual couch potatoes" and they do not want anyone to do
anything to change this.
I have seen many that do not want to make waves...they do not want any
disturbances. They do not want anything that contradicts their
peace...Well....if we BELONG to HIM...that will NOT happen. Did not
Christ Himself promise we would be persecuted for HIS name sake? Well
if we are not...we are a spiritual couch potatoes...we are not DOING
anything for HIM! If we are not being attacked we are not a threat
to satan. Oh...satan will often get us to think that when God is
trying to stir the pot that satan is causing it so we will think we
are doing something.
I have been cussed out for proclaiming the Word of God. I have
literally been assaulted. I have had a couple tell me they were going
to tell my wife I was having an affair. One time I was on the phone
with someone that told me this. I took the phone to my wife and told
her someone wanted to talk to her. This person did not say a word.
Some of these that have cussed me out and threatened me are now
Christians because I would not be intimidated, I would not "cut and run"
Many are counting on "being raptured out" at the first sign of
trouble. Well folks...the apostles were not. They had to face major
problems and all but one died at the hands of others as martyrs. Are
we any better then they that we should not have to face these things?
Is our GOD any less a God then theirs because HE is not able to
comfort us...to bring us through it? HE IS the Same today yesterday
and forever is HE not?
This was written in reply to a notice that a group for the persecuted church was going to be deleted because of lack of participation. This group was started show the price others are paying to proclaim JESUS to a lost and dying world. Yet if someone calls us a bad name, we are so willing to cast them aside and ban them from our groups, delete them from messengers and send them on
their way. I am sure as they go, they will be thinking of what yet
another Christian is like.
This reminds me of:
Matthew 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go
in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Folks, it is time to wake up and get out of our comfort zones.
People are dying and going to hell because we do not want to risk
being made uncomfortable. If we do not start doing it now, how will
we ever be able to do it when they come...for US????
