In Search of True Christians
Dear Brethren, From our archives:
July 16, 2010 Federal abortion funding... marks a major sign post in the Countdown to the
Return of Jesus Christ... Representative Bart Stupak's executive order
is not worth the paper it is written on. He sold his soul for that
executive order ' and he sold out cheap. The day the House voted to
pass the health care bill, President Obama signed an executive order
purporting to prevent federal funding of abortions. However, if you are
a taxpayer ' you are now funding the abortion of babies... It is morally
wrong to end an unborn human life, and it is reprehensible to extort
taxpayer dollars from every American to pay for abortions... As
assuredly as the Kings of Israel were destroyed for the slaughter of
babies, the US Government's involvement in the taking of innocent human
life will shortly lead to the destruction of this entire country.
Infanticide was rampant in the days of Jeremiah just as it is today.
Few people realize how closely we follow in Judah's steps when the
little fetus is murdered and disposed of in an incinerator. God's
judgment declares that there will not be room enough to bury those who
perform such cruelties (Jeremiah 7:30-32).
Today, February 18, 2012 The attack on our freedom
of religion continues in a powerful way. Our constitutional religious
liberties have been dealt a mortal blow. Do not be fooled by so called
'accommodations' for Christian's beliefs. There is no exemption for any
group and there is there is no contemplation by the administration for
the religious rights of the citizen. President Obama's administration
has just put into federal law the very regulation that drew objections
from nearly 200 Catholic bishops, some 50 religiously affiliated
colleges and universities, 65 North American bishops of Orthodox
churches, numerous other Jewish, Evangelical and Lutheran leaders '
without changing so much as a comma. President Obama's administration
locked into regulation its original position that citizens pay for abortion pills with tax dollars.
If the government can trample on our God given constitutional rights with impunity, how much longer do we have before our religious broadcast and internet services are suspended by 'law?'
'The night comes when no man can work.' (John 9:4)
'He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.' (Romans 9:28)
'Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord." (Amos 8:11)
'They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever kills you will think that he doeth God service.' (John 16:2)
'Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while he is near.' (Isaiah 55:6)
In Search of True Christians
the Father and the Word, Jesus Christ, devised a plan wherein they would
share their existence - their love - their life - and call many sons and
daughters to glory (Hebrews 2:10). God determined from the foundation
of the world that the Messiah would come and that He would have a body
of brethren to reign and rule throughout the millennium with Him
(Revelation 5:10, 20:4).
"As many as received Him, to them gave He power
to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: Which
were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will
of man, but of [the will of] God." (John 1:12-13)
It is impossible to honor Christ the Head while we are disregarding and
dishonoring His Body, the church brethren, for whom He shed His blood.
And so the question arises, 'Where are the true Christians of today?'
Where are those Christians who are actually living their faith so as to
be in the first resurrection and be in the millennium with Jesus
Christ? Is a true Christian one who only professes to be? Is a true
Christian one who only hopes to be included in the category of
Christians? Is a true Christian one who only says,' Lord, Lord?'
There is a salvational process that began before time and will continue
until the Messiah has completed His work. If at any point a converted
Christian interrupts God's process of salvation in his life, there
remains no hope of serving in the millennium with Him.
"If we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of
the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain
fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall
devour the adversaries." (Hebrews 10:26-27)
We look forward to being in the 1000 year millennium with Christ as our
Head ' and we the glorified spiritual body.
"[The Lord Jesus
Christ] shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto
His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to
subdue all things unto Himself." (Philippians 3:21)
"And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in
heavenly places in Christ Jesus." (Ephesians 2:6)
Let's carry some of what we are seeing to its conclusion ' let's put the
pieces together. The process that Christians go through is this: They
must be called of God; they must be chosen of God; and they must be
faithful to God ' enduring until the very end (Revelation 17:14). It is
politically incorrect to say that only true Christians will inherit the
Kingdom of God ' but let every word of God be true, and let every man
who speaks otherwise be a liar (Romans 3:4).
"[God] hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not
according to our works, but according to His own purpose, [Plan] and
grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began." (2
Timothy 1:9) [that is how far back the plan goes ' and it includes us]
"It pleased the LORD to
bruise Him; He hath put Him to grief: when thou shalt make His soul an
offering for sin, He shall see his seed, [a body of brethren to reign and
rule in the millennium with Him] He shall prolong His days, and the
pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand." (Isaiah 53:10)
