Great Sermon! timely message - yes, it does seem God is sifting the 'church'. Many big name evangelicals have or falling into ecumenism. Boldness and faithfulness are waning, the love of God and His truth is scarce.
"He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved". May God hold fast to His elect, strengthening, testing, and bringing to light the sins of the saints.

Faint hope--greater love Ester went in unto the king when it was not the law. She went boldly to the throne of grace and pleaded with the king to save her people. The king answered and wrote a decree. Faint hope lays down her life to save her soul. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:3).
