A Time of Reformation

Now Is The Time

We want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship [what you] have set up.”  Daniel 3:18 (NLT)

This time in Daniel’s life and in the life of the people of God was a time a great turmoil.  But unbeknownst to them, it was also the time of great opportunity for God’s people because God was moving forth His plan of the ages.

We are at a crossroads in America. 

Great ideological, political, social and spiritual changes are here.  The God of our Fathers, the God of the Bible, for the most part has been replaced in the hearts and minds of the American people.  We have, as a people, rejected the principle and godly values that made this country great.  However, there is still a remnant here who have not bow the knee to the false gods of modernism: spiritual and principled men and women of God who have not, and will not, bow before the rotting gods of the popular culture and the secular progressives.

The Church of Jesus Christ – all born again believers – have an appointment with divine destiny.  The scriptures declare that

those who stay courageously loyal to their God will take a strong stand.  (Daniel 11:32b  MSG Bible). 

All others will surely get swept away in the apostasy of the end time as recorded by Paul, the apostle in 1 Timothy 4:1 (NLT)

Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.

Today some so-called “leaders” in the emergent church are so enamored with having recognition by the world that they are compromising biblical truth for a more “socially-correct” position of “understanding” concerning moral issues.  I call on discerning leaders in the emergent church movement to withdraw from and denounce these leaders as Paul did and heed his command (apostolic authority) to

… rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.

The Episcopal church for years has allowed “debate” concerning homosexuals in the ministry and has recently been torn apart as a denomination because of this “debate” to gain “understanding”.  No good can come from compromising God’s word and opening a debate to further understand.  The truth is, if God approves it, it’s approved; if God’s condemns it, it’s condemned.  Period.  End of discussion.  That stand is “bigoted” in the popular culture, but it’s acceptable in God’s sight.

The church must begin again to speak out and be the conscience of the nation and the critics of all that is evil.  We must call evil what it is and resist the flattery that will come to

those who betray the holy covenant [of God].  (Daniel 11:32a  MSG Bible)

We are will either crave to be accepted by those around us, or with a passionate love, turn them to righteousness.

The choice is ours.  The opportunity is now before us. 

What will you do?

’til next time

Danny
