I really don’t have the time to write this but I am taking the time. I believe that I have to document this somewhere quick before I lose it. I feel the Spirit is Speaking here.
It is interesting to reminisce and compare the times, values and the attitudes of people from different eras of Faith.
For instance, when I was a boy, it was apart of the female skill set in my family and culture to be able to use fingernail polish, nail file, nail polisher remover, nail buffer and nail clippers with expertise and style. “Doing nails” was apart of our routine hygiene practices. It was not a symbol of style or affluence as it is today but of good hygiene. This was never something that we considered as apart of our everyday financial needs or a symbol of our social status. We had other concerns that were of extreme importance such as the constant fear of death at the hands of those who hated blacks or by a system that dehumanized and subjugated blacks.
We were prayerful about our children, our sick and our elderly in an atmosphere of segregated and unequal medical services. We were focused on God and Christ and a Faith that said OUR GOD is Bigger than our injustices and our tormentors. We were passionate and self-sacrificing about a “Righteous” cause greater than ourselves and that ushered us into the presence of GOD’S Throne by CHRIST JESUS or LORD!
At one time we sought to serve God and show forth His righteousness in all that we did. We sought to serve a cause greater than ourselves. We were aware that our conduct reflected upon our parents, our community and our GOD. But now it appears that we are only concerned with serving ourselves.
It appears that today’s culture has abandoned holiness and chooses only to reflect a progressive acceptance of worldly immoralities, vulgarities, lewdness and spiritual and sexual perversions.
At One Time We Had PASSION, POWER & PURPOSE!
Things appear to be less divinely focused today than they were yesterday. There seems to be more glamour, glitter and gold than actual substance, character and integrity. There seems to be more general sensationalism, journalism, entertainment and scripted performances than there are actual soldiers in the ARMY of the LORD. There appears to be more disingenuous opportunist, hypocrites and ministers of Satan’s doctrines of obscenities and perversions than there is Saints Standing On The ROCK of SALVATION, HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Some of our unelected so-called “Black Leaders” are spiritually impotent and morally conflicted because of their association with same-sex marriage and their affiliation with any legislation that legalizes what God has forbidden.
In the early days of our “Faith”, such an association with the sworn enemies of God would be unthinkable. There would not even be a discussion. However, Satan has made his presence clearly known and has shown that he is the god of this world and of the air and he has established his rule in high places.
He knows that his time isn’t long. Therefore Satan has accelerated his plans. He has deceived and continues to deceive the world in astronomical numbers and wars constantly against the remnant of God’s ONE TRUE CHURCH.
Allow me to simply summarize by saying that I thank God for reserving for Himself a remnant that have not been deceived nor polluted by false doctrines. For God has said:
“I HAVE KEPT for Myself SEVEN THOUSAND MEN WHO HAVE NOT BOWED THE KNEE TO BAAL.” In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God’s gracious choice.… (Romans 11:4-5)
I Pray That God’s Grace Reserves Us As His Remnant In The Earth Today And Preserves Us As His Saints Until The Time of Our Transition Into His Kingdom. Amen.
