About the Seriousness and truth of the Gospel anymore. They would rather be comfortable in the world, and with its people – as that is what they love more than actually following Christ! I am addressing the actual brethren here, and not the ones who have never actually met, or had the Lord as Savior and Master. It is quite evident to me nowadays “in this great day of strong delusions”, that brethren are more interested in having their ears tickled in what they wish to hear. The Spirit of Antichrist is alive and well, which resides in, and is preached by systematic theologies (Churches) who’s only concern it is to stay in business.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness doth already work: only there is one that restraineth now, until he be taken out of the way. He that restraineth is now gone, and many simply hold onto a Bible-based tradition, which was once taught when the Holy Spirit was still active in saving souls for eternity in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and Him Crucified unto the lost.
Most do not even understand that the workings of God towards salvation is quickly drawing towards a close and that the restraints to sin have come off! Why? Because they do not actually follow Him (spiritually) or else more would understand the season we are in.
It is my experience from posting many a pointed article about actually following Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth that people have no more taste for understanding, what Jesus called the “narrow way”. Oh, many will even go and visit the “eye of the needle” in Jerusalem, and the tour guide will explain that the camel had to remove it’s baggage to enter at night when the main opening was much smaller. Yet they do not care for the truth that they must “be willing” to give up all for Christ, as this might make them uncomfortable in the world and cost them something, maybe just their own status for example.
This is the “broad roaders” greatest fear that their Lord might ask them to sacrifice something within their lives which makes them comfortable (provided that they still have light to see) they still won’t listen and just want to remain comfortable within their delusion while doing social church. Evangelism is important, yet most forget that it is to be the Lord’s leading and it is only God who will bring others to Christ. Yet most have forgotten the God element, as they move independently of the Lord yet base their faith on the Bible .
Will there still be faith upon the earth when Jesus returns the scripture asks? Inferring that faith is almost nonexistent, but for a remnant. Men operate today like they did when Christ came the first time, in religious’ self-righteousness and pride. They will NOT be made conformed to his image by allowing themselves to be crucified and put to death; and therefore, they have no spiritual life. Only Bible-based works of independent evangelism, and often soul-ish emotionalism accompanied by false spiritual experiences which are given by the “deceiver of the brethren”, as God has now handed them over for destruction.
The really sad part is, that many were given the “Chance” to become the sons and daughters of God, but have chosen to rather be cut off and burnt, as in actuality, they were “enemies of the cross” who receive the spirit of Antichrist, because they have walked in religious independence from Him with a non-repentant heart.
Be a Bride of Christ, unspotted from the world, and not a dirty whore, who will be judged. “Come out of her my People”, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Revelation 13:4 and Jeremiah 51:45) My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.
