Great Sermon! Sending a word of encouragement to you brother David Gay from across the pond.I wanted to let you know your labor is not in vain your teaching is bearing fruit here in the states.Thank you and I am praying for you.
SO sad--but true! Timely article, Brother! It appears that the whole world has become a continuous episode of 'The Twilight Zone'. Sadly, I can hardly discern the true from the false --even within professing Christian circles on and off social media. Although these state of affairs might cause much disillusionment to real, born-again, Christ-exalting believers--does not the Word of God warn us that in these last days there will be many 'having a form of godliness' (veneer) 'but denying its power' (reality)...2 Timothy 3:1-5? Looking forward to the continuance of this series!
Amen! Amen! Amen! Whatever our earthly title or class, may God cause us to spiritually hail to Jesus Christ—the everlasting King of kings and Lord of lords—before we die or He returns (Revelation 17:14; 19:11-16).
My sentiments exactly! Thank you for this article, Brother! As I’ve read & meditated on the Word of God and observed the sad, sad, state of what you refer to as ‘Christendom’ here in America and beyond—these have been my thoughts of what the LORD has done repeatedly and will continue to do with His backsliding people to bring us back to Himself and back to what He accepts as TRUE worship (John 4:23-24.) Persecution is indeed most unwelcome & fearful, but it has always proven to be (Old & New Covenant) a very effective instrument in the hand of God for separating His TRUE people from the world and planting and growing His TRUE church—the ecclesia. Judging by God’s Word and the signs of the times, persecution seems to be an inevitable ‘needs be’ to bring about TRUE revival to unite the ecclesia so that we may obtain and demonstrate TRUE God-centered, Spirit-filled love & devotion among ourselves for the glory of God. And we, prayerfully, live out this ecclesia-life with the hopes of God using us to bring many lost souls from Satan’s kingdom of darkness into our LORD’S kingdom of marvelous light! But, ‘who is sufficient for these things?’ we may ask. And, the answer for God’s TRUE people is what it has always been and what it will always be until we die or our precious LORD returns…2 Corinthians 12:9-10.
Great Sermon! An excellent set of important and sobering thoughts and questions. Does the monologue pulpit increase healthy spirituality? The evidence points to “no.” What then is to be our next step?
