An Epistle Unto The Christians
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
When Will Christians Stop Living In Fear?
It is good not to be afraid of telling the truth of God’s Word to the lost world. Speaking truth should not be taboo, and it should not be discouraged. In fact, our mission as Christians is to tell the lost world about the love of Christ, the salvation through the sacrifice of his precious blood, and of the judgement to come. The last two have been lacking in the modern Christian’s message.
The message of Christians is better understood as their witness. After seeing something incredible transpire, we have an urge to share the occurrence with those who were not there, and did not experience the incredible event. Salvation is an incredible event because it transforms the lost enemy of Christ into a saved child of God. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever (1 Peter 1:23).
We know that Christ saved us, as the scripture says, by the power of God. The power of God is not effected by the feelings a person has or by the facts they choose to believe. The power of God is greater than science, philosophy, and any other aspect of man’s comprehension. The understanding of truth that man has comes by the spirit of man, for the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God. The spirit of man breeds bondage, but the Spirit of God gives liberty of the spirit, the body, and the soul.
I Would Rather Know One Word From Our GOD, Than To Know All The Answers To Every Question Of Science!
The bondage of man’s understanding has an abundance of heavy well-oiled chains, that weigh down the mind, and bind the heart in lies. When the world discusses science so-called, they use it for the purpose of control and fear. These are the symptoms of bondage. Being controlled, and being in fear are the mockeries of God’s power and liberty that satan has designed to put the lost souls of the world into a false comfort. This trance can only be broken with the light of the Gospel of Christ. Why then do we hide the light from prisoners?
Telling the prisoners of sin that the chains they wear are not meant for their comfort is not recommended by the world. The world has convinced western Christians that it is better to say nothing, than to offend the sinner. In doing so, we allow ourselves to be chained up in lies. This is while the world fears no recourse for trying to convince the masses that experimental drugs are necessary for health, that staying inside is better for society, and covering your face will save humanity. These are obvious bondage techniques if they are perceived through the eyes of a child. For at what time is it considered altruistic to be forced to hide your ugly mug, forced to stay inside your prison, and forced to be a lab rat, all against your will? Never. But this is the contention of the Christian, how can we convince the brainwashed lost that their comforter is their oppressor?
The Error Of The Modern Church
The proclivity of modern western Christians is to follow the prisoners into the prisons. We have turned into enablers instead of ambassadors or preachers of liberation. Where did we lose sight of our duties? It is no doubt that we have forgotten the exhortation which the LORD speaks to us as unto children, and we have not yet strived or resisted against sin by the blood of Christ. The offensive truth is that we have not seen the witness of the past that the Apostle Paul explained in the eleventh chapter of his Epistle to the Hebrews, and so we have not laid aside every weight of this world, and the bondage thereof, and have not laid aside the sin, and so it besets us perpetually, causing us to swerve unto vain jangling, which is heresy.
The vain jangling is the lie that Christ loves the sinner so much that the sinner never needs to go to Christ in repentance! And we believe the lie that lost sinners will be accepted without repentance so intrinsically, that it has become the prevailing message of the modern Church. This is evidenced by the strategy of Churches that rely on this lie to bring the lost sinners into the Church! Christ died for us because we were exceedingly sinful, and our salvation necessitated a better offering than that of bulls and goats. By Christ’s own blood he saved us. It was not the kindness that God showed the blind and the lame that saved us, or the teachings he left with his disciples, or his ability to rebuke the pharisees, which things he did in love. Nothing but the blood of Jesus washed away our sins, and saved us.
Christ saved us from the judgement to come, of hell and the lake of fire. This is a place of torment, meant for the devil and his angels, yet there are many trillions of souls that will find themselves in this pit because of their rejection of Christ. So while the Christians are busy figuring out whether or not they should go to Church because of the frightening potential to catch a minor illness, many millions of lost people continue to go about their lives headed for hell, living in the same fear of Covid as these Christians, except without a Savior.
We Must Seek God’s Face
The Church needs chastisement, and the Church needs to have their voice restored. This will only come by submitting to God, for he is our voice, and he is the Father that chastises in love. We need not fear the sickness or persecution of the world. We have all things in Christ, most of all eternal life. If we die then we are with him, whereas if the lost sinner dies they are in hell. We must not be afraid to tell them the truth, as it may be the only time they hear it.
I pray that the LORD will silence the wicked liars of this world, who twist scripture to say that Christians should stay home from Church. I pray that the LORD forgives us of our negligence in the race he has set before us. I pray that the LORD would give his people a renewed desire for preaching his word in truth, to the believer and nonbeliever. And I pray that the LORD will open the eyes of his children, to see that we have been released from the bondage of sin, just to be thrown back into it by our pseudo-altruistic leaders.
Did they throw us into this bondage? Or have we placed these chains of sin on ourselves?
Brethren, we must keep ourselves from idols. Science is damnation!
