I used to pray for the Harvest. I still pray for the Harvest because that’s what Jesus commanded in Matthew 9. But now I pray for Revival first. Because the church is 90% dead. You can’t labor for the harvest when your spiritually wretched miserable, blind, and naked.
Anytime our leading evangelist can take off the fact that Mormonism is a cult off of his website to appease an election…
Anytime the top gospel rappers and top gospel singers can switch from holiness to hypocrisy and iniquity overnight, and still keep 99% of their followers…
Anytime righteousness is consistently seen as wrong, and unrighteousness is seen as good – IN THE CHURCH….
There is dead church, and we need to repent and come back to the heart of God before we can even think about reaching the world. Right now the only thing we are reaching the world with is confusion. The fact that we are rallying behind a Mormon who will do nothing significantly different than Obama is a judgement on US. It proves we’ve already failed and that we refuse to repent.
Especially the political compromises, they prove that it is totally and completely the church’s fault that America is in the predicament that is then. Black churches support Obama, White churches support Romney. The blind lead the blind. People wouldn’t even know a man after God’s own heart if they watch him kill Goliath.
Ron Paul called out the Federal Reserve, the government debt, and the fake wars, and backed up every single one of his policies with scripture. They call him crazy crackpot. That’s why the judgment is getting worse and worse, because simple truth has been rejected, even when God gave an opportunity. People chose power, money, and influence over truth. The fact that we only have two hypocrites to choose from is a JUDGEMENT, because we are hypocrites ourselves. God sends wicked leaders to wicked people.
People don’t know how far and fast compromises like this can spread thru the body like a yeast infection. Pastors that won’t say anything are part of the problem. People can keep trying to move forward if they want, but the only thing left to do is to go back to where we departed from obedience to God, and repent, and reverse our decision. We claim to want political leaders to change their decisions but we won’t change our own selves. WE are the real leaders, Body of Christ.
The Church in Sardis had a Successful Brand Name that they were Alive, but they were Spiritually DEAD:
Revelations 3:3 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
The Church in Laodicea Thought they were Rich and Successful But they were Spiritually, Wretched, Blind, and Naked:
Revelation 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
