I was wondering had anyone considered the following:
In the beginning, the first saints of Yehowshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) believed on and followed Christ at the risk of loss of Life and Liberty.
To be associated with Christ was a constant life and death proposition. Just ask Stephen, Peter and Paul – some of the better known martyrs of Christ.
Being a saint of Father YHVH and a follower of Christ was not popular, nationally celebrated, welcomed into politics, convenient or profitable. It was often a risky proposition and placed one at risk of being arrested, beaten, stoned to death, hung upside down from a stake, fed to wild beasts, tortured and burned alive.
However, today, saints have been replaced with Christians who have married themselves to the world and its new age morality, traditional Christian theology, Sunday worship, political correctness, gender role equality and spineless acquiescing to societal wickedness and gospels.
Has anyone noticed that the Ekklesia of CHRIST is almost invisible and nonexistent? And well we should be lest we be future tormented and targeted for attrition by the children of Satan and the offspring of her deceptions.
WAKE-UP PEOPLE!!! RETURN TO THE ORIGINAL FAITH. PREPARE TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF YOUR LIFE TO GOD REMEMBERING THAT HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOUR MONEY, EDUCATION, AWARDS, ACADEMIC DEGREES, WORK HISTORY AND ECCLESIASTICAL HONORS AND TITLES.
GOD is concerned about your obedient faith, selfless spirit, sacrificial love and trust in HIS WORD – preferring to listen to and honor HIM more than yourself and mankind.
The time is fast approaching and now is upon us where all genuine Saints of God will face unusual and clandestine attacks upon our character, careers, finances and general well-being by the enemy and her children. (Matthew 10:21-23, Matthew 10:25, John 15:18-19 and 1 Peter 4:12-13)
Are you prepared to STAND? Are you prepared to resist the Devil with your very life? Are you prepared to lay down your life for CHRIST SAKE? Are you prepared to suffer for Christ as did the Saints in the beginning? Or are you just like every other contemporary Christian – believing that Christ died in order for you to be favored and live a life of privilege, celebrity, wealth and accommodations? Are you prepared to be numbered among the True Saints of God? (Revelation 7:9-18)
Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.
For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, so that you won’t grow weary and lose heart. In struggling against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.
