She said here in the north , the so called free nations , we seem to be in heavy bondage .
In the western free societies the most greatest of abominations has occurred . And its also going world wide .
But notice it sprang mainly from , THE FREE SOCITIES . not the persecuted socities .
When men focus , make their focus on seeing the concept of being free, as being any other concept THAN SPIRITUAL, this will happen.
When the ideals of what makes one FEEL FREE becomes the focus , many truths GET SOLD OUT in order to have that type of freedom .
Uprisings occurred so men could have the idea of what they THINK a free society IS . But it aint worked out too well HAS IT .
The churches have done this too. Substituting SPIRITUAL FREEDOM , for Earthly freedom .
The latter is bondage no matter how free the society thinks it is . It is far easier to run a people into BONDAGE under the feeling FREE concepts .
Even though under hard persecution and bondage of king type feudal systems or emperor systems , The early CHURCH was truly FREE.
Their focus was not on the vote , it was not on what would make LIFE simplier or easier for them. While they did pray that we could lead a peaceable life.
THEY were never focused on DOING ALL to get that . We have become instruments of pawns , by holding dear to ideals of men of how we can have
that freedom in this world . Slaves to systems that appear FREE, but are in great bondage of sin . All the while the focus is on , WHO can make my LIFE EASIER
in this world . Left votes for left , right votes for right . and both have the concept this or that person will make MY LIFE easier .
And all the while more and more truths were sold out TO have such system . We should have no fear , NO MATTER WHO is in office.
Fear of being persecuted , has men vote , or who can fix the economy has men vote . WHEN our focus should be on REPENTANCE , ON HOLY LIVING .
The system has been corrupted big time . the churches long , long ago, some were sold under concepts of church and state .
DID the world really get all better under the newer systems than the king feudal ones . NO , it keeps getting worse .
Either way it don't matter what system is in place . Men will do evil , always have , but its gotten far worse .
HOW free are we in these so called FREE WORLD nations . I don't see us as being more free than those in persecuted countries .
IN fact , I see them singing praises of JOY , no matter what is coming against them . Yet many here praise the system , YET look how spiritually starved most are .
I say , we need only pray for men in power , but nothing else . Make the entire focus BACK ON GOD , ON CHRIST and no fear of loss or suffering .
Their was a rich church metioned in sardis and a poor church mentioned in laodeciia.
But when it came to the worlds goods, THEY WERE OPPSOITE . the poor suffering church , GOD called rich
those who had it easy and were rich , HE CALLED POOR . THEN HE made the call, to be made RICH . BY persecution and trials , and be zealous and repent .
WELL, here it comes . And its time and more than time , for our focus to be off the world systems , and SOLEY above on GOD .
We can pray for leaders , but my advice only that . Just pray for them to repent and come to Christ . We can pray for them
but have no hope in them . HOPE only in GOD and be prepared to lose all for HIS name sake . Not only that , BUT REJOICE when persecuted .
and know this , HAPPY are you , WHEN you are persecuted ,chastenend . FOR all whom GOD loves HE does chasten .
and more so , IF we be without chastisement , we are bastards and not sons . Our focus for the easier life , NEEDS TO DIE TODAY .
AND we need to truly get all affections set above on GOD , fearing nothing that will cause us loss , suffering or even death .
Fear ONLY GOD . Get the gospel out , focus on true exhortations which build the body up . WORRY not about democracy , communism
or whatever . Cause whatever is going to occur, GOD IS IN CONTROL. IT IS even GODS will that the ten horns surrender to the beast .
NOT because GOD approves of their evil, BUT HE WILL USE this . The time of the end is coming . GOD purposefully will send a STRONG DELSUION
so that all who rejected truth , love of the truth , WILL be damned and believe the lie . GOD is doing all things according TO HIS OWN WILL.
And it always will work for good to those who love HIM , and for destruction of those who DID NOT .
First comes our great tribulation . THEN comes the wrath of GOD against those who persecuted the lambs.
I truly wish we read our bibles more . We would learn CHRIST . WE would see the clear image OF WHO GOD really is . AND IF we truly have the SPIRIT
it sure does guide us into all truth . We need to abandon politics , ideals about self defense , ideals about who can make our life easier in this world .
And we need to focus on the ONE WHO saved us and WHO can KEEP US from falling , or we gonna fall. WE running out of time . WE Need to pray
more , we need to be here for one another and pray for the church world wide to remain faithful through every trial and temptation .
A massive delusion is crawling in , and then BAM , its going EXPLODE world wide fast .
