The Last Word
Daily Devotional for Sunday, April 26, 2010
These days, as we watch our nation and world spiral into a spiritual abyss, the only real answer is helping the lost find Christ. You can make a difference. Sharing our faith is what God has called us to do. We, "True Christians", are the ones God has called to take the Gospel to this lost and dieing world. May we all be encouraged and faithful in fulfilling God's call.
When they padlock the doors of the churches in the United States! Impossible you say? That day is closer than you think. If you would have told someone just 50 years ago, that there would no longer be prayer in our schools, that it would be illegal to display the 10 commandments in a courthouse, or that there would be efforts to take "under God " out of the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" off of our money, they would have called you crazy.
Here is some more reality for you. Things are not going to get any better! I am thankful for all of those who love God and work so diligently in leading the lost to Christ. But here is the problem. This nation is becoming more Godless every single day! It is happening right before our very eyes. We are fast becoming a Godless society.
So what is next for our nation? False religions will continue to grow. False religions are based on the writings of men and prey on the fact people are looking for answers, but use man's sinful condition to lead them into deception. Perverting the things of God that we used to honor will continue to get worse. Marriage has already become little more than a legal date to most people. Sex with the same sex and people you are not married to will continue to destroy the family and create more generations of people totally void of God in their life, meaning, the nation will adopt their Godless values.
In this nation, we still enjoy freedom to share the Word of God. We must take advantage of it. Jesus said that we had to work while it was still light because the night was coming when no one can work. We have got to stop playing games and get serious, because we have a very real enemy who is deadly serious. It is time to stop worrying about being politically correct and start being Biblically correct!
Jesus is coming back for His church, that time is truly very short now. We are living in a very evil and dark world. This nation has rapidly deteriorated spiritually right before our very eyes over the past 50 years. But God has always had a remnant of His people. I pray today that you will be part of that remnant God will use to bring in this great harvest.
The Bible proclaims that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. That is because the church is not a building, it is all the people that have been baptized into Christ and will follow Him to their death. That is the true church, and that is why they can padlock the doors of a building, but they will never stop the work of God! GOD WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD!
