Message

Instead though, modern day pastors are taught to make the gospel seeker friendly. Don't talk about sin and repentance. Everything lovey dovey and kittens and rainbows. Sermons are about their potential instead of God's sufficiency. Their power instead of God's sovereignty. This is how Christians get so apoplectic when something seems to go wrong in the political realm. That is because the god they have been led to serve actually serves them. He is a weak god incapable of saving anyone let alone being able to handle a President Trump or a President Clinton.

So the secondary message is very clear to me. God is telling the church to get out of the bed it has been laying in with this world. The Bible says we are a shining city on a hill. We are supposed to be salt and light. The world is supposed to look at us as a peculiar people. A royal priesthood. Instead when they look at us it must seem like they are looking in the mirror. Sinful lifestyles of leaders excused and marginalized. Corruption and greed running rampant. Dishonesty ruling the day. Mind you I am talking about the church! We need to stop the nonsense beloved. We need to stop supporting prosperity pimps making merchandise of the sheep of the Lord. We need to stop supporting greasy grace which is leading untold numbers to hell by promising that their sins somehow no longer matter to God. We need to stop supporting the False Signs and Lying Wonders network, gem stones, gold dust, glory clouds, angel feathers, the NAR, the Kansas City Prophets, self-appointed apostles-prophets-generals, TBN, Daystar, and get back to the only thing that is the power of God unto the salvation of men and that is the Gospel. Not some distorted and compromised version of the Gospel, which is supposed to be accursed. The actual Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Beloved the key verses are often misused by many Christians. First of all, it is not a promise to the church today. It is part of an historical narrative that applied to Israel. That said, we can learn from it as we are to learn from all Scripture. God says that these stories are included in Scripture so that we might learn from them. Christians talk a good game about revival and repentance but they are always looking externally. The sinful world is to blame for their lot in life. That they just want God to heal our land. Well let's see what God says about that.

First of all the people who must act are those called by His name. That would us beloved; Christians. It is pure folly and arrogance to assume that fallen man will magically behave better if we tell them about a God they do not believe in. No; it is the church that must humble itself. The church must pray and seek the face of the Lord. It is the church that must turn from its wicked ways. Wait a minute preacher! Wicked ways is a bit harsh. No? I do not believe it is beloved. We have the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Without admittance, people will spend an eternity in hell, suffering and separated from God. What do we do with those keys? We hide them in our pocket and sell them a god who cannot save them. A god who is powerless against the wiles of this world. A god who offers no comfort or peace when the storms of life set in. Or when we have more questions than answers. Or even when the next election might be between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The sky is falling! The sky is falling! No it is not. Not if you serve the one true God that is. And He has a message for His bride today. Stop looking to man and stop lying down with the world. Turn from our wicked ways. Be the church again and let God be God.

Reverend Anthony Wade -- May 4, 2016
