                                             The Church in Crisis Mode  
     
          Time is short and we must come to grips with what is going on around us.  We must be honest with ourselves about the condition of the church.  Everything is at stake at this point!  The church is on a downhill path, if not, going over a cliff.  Of course the only thing that gives me hope is that I know that there is a remnant that will be spared.  The Word of God says:  "And to wait for His Son from Heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come."  1 Thessalonians 1:10.
           America with it's leadership,  has denied God, (The Word and the Gospel of Christ) by establishing secular laws that goes against the Godly principles that the founders used to establish this great nation.  The Church is totally apostatized and is totally responsible or the neglect of preaching a present truth that will guide the Church! 
           Many, if not all, of the visible ministries that are supposed to be supporting the Word o God has completely compromised by lusting after money and enjoying rockstar status.  "For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God's chosen ones)." Matthew 24:24
            "What then [shall we conclude]? Israel failed to obtain what it sought [God's favor by obedience to the Law].  Only the elect (those chosen few) obtained it, while the rest of them became callously indifferent (blinded, hardened, and made insensible to it).  Romans 11:7
             Now the chosen ones of God have been given an understanding o the way things truly are i.e. the truth.   "But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth." 2Thessalonians 2:13.   If we are the children of God then our lives will reflect the Holiness that abides in us as Sons of God, but God's children collectively.  There is little worse than the church and the nation being lead by people who are under a strong delusion of Satan and think all along that they are right.
              2 Thessalonians 9:9-11    9." Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  10.  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.   11.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,  that they should believe a lie:
               Judgment has already begun in the House of God - the church is the dwelling place of Christ Jesus.  The place of the hearts of a remnant people who are seeing the purging of the church.  Those who have been purged themselves from the religion of man.  1 Peter 4:17-18     17.  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God:  and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?   18.   And if the righteous scarcely be saved,  where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?  Judgment has always began at the house of God because we are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  God always keeps His church purged and even though what we see as the visible church does not represent God's divine order.
                 Look at Jeremiah chapters 8-9 and you will see judgment upon the elders and the leaders who were responsible for ministering to the people of God.  Judgment came as a result of a corrupt priesthood and it is so today!  What happened to Eli?  Was his ministry one of integrity and purity?  No, he and his sons had defiled the office of the priesthood and paid a heavy price for it.  That being said, the Lord raised up Samuel in a dynamically prophetic office and balanced the scales of spiritual justice by speaking and demonstrating the Word of God.
                  Read the entire chapter of Jeremiah.  In these verses God shows how He feels about contaminated ministry and His judgment upon false shepherds and false prophets in any generation.
                   Jeremiah 23:14-16     14.  But in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing:  they commit adultery and walk in lies;  they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns from his evil; all of them have become like Sodom to me, and it's inhabitants like Gomorrah.  15.   Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets:  "Behold, I will feed them with bitter food and give them poisoned water to drink, for from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has gone out into all the land."  16.   Thus says the Lord of hosts: "Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes.  They speak visions of their own minds,  not from the mouth of the LORD.
                   Is this not the church in America?  I know God has a remnant that is following His voice and are being prepared for battle.  So if you feel all alone, remember if God is for us who can be against us!  It is our prayer that there will be a gathering of those who feel that they are all alone and feel the need to come together in one place and grow together.  If you feel that we are on to something here at Good News Fellowship,  then I urge you to visit our gatherings on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.
