Nationalism, Patriotism and Politics-Idolatry or God’s Way?

Posted by appolus on March 29, 2012

NATIONALISM, PATRIOTISM and POLITICS -IDOLATRY or GOD’s WAY? -by Rick Frueh.
I remain simply astounded at the response to my posts on nationalism, patriotism, and idolatry. I am convinced the Spirit is actively doing a work of grace in many, many hearts. Just so everyone knows where I am in my journey I want to share. But do not think that your perspective has to mirror mine, or that you will be bullied if you are in a different place. But it would be edifying for brothers and sisters to sharpen each other´s iron.

Poems in one place

Posted by appolus on March 25, 2012

I decided that I should put all of my poems in one place so here goes  http://www.poemhunter.com/frank-mceleny/ I still have about another 100 to put on there. The Lord commissioned me to write a poem for every Psalm, so at the above link you will find them there as well, well, at least 1-45. I have written them all but I am still working to type up the rest, so it will be updated frequently until my three fingered typing gets it done 🙂 May they bless you, and may the Psalm poems bless you too. They were written in one of the toughest periods of my walk with the Lord. No surprise at the Lord’s timing in asking me to do this…………. bro Frank

Prophecy comes out of the desert

Posted by appolus on March 24, 2012

The uniqueness of Christianity is found when they are persecuted. This willingness to lose one’s life, lose one’s reputation, home, family , job , only really comes to the fore when that is tested. Think about the Gospel of John in chapter three. It talks about being born again and the necessity of believing in God and the one that He sent, Jesus His Son. Now that word, believe, is , in my mind, the weakest of all the translated words in the Bible. Its a semantical nightmare trying to chart a course through what most people believe the word ‘ believe,” to mean. In the context of that given word in John, it meant ” to trust with one’s life.” You see, when it was spoken , to ” believe,” in Jesus as the messiah was to be totally and immediately ostracized from the community. It meant the giving up your culture and the religion that you had held for 2000 years. It also meant that Christ came into your life, not semantically, but actually, and behold a new creature stepped forth.

Poems for the Weary

Posted by appolus on March 22, 2012

Weariness is a dreadful thing. The definition of weariness is……..

“physically or mentally fatigued, having one’s interest, forbearance, or indulgence worn out.”

Oftentimes Christians do not want to admit to weariness. It may seem like a lack of faith to acknowledge one’s weariness. Of course this is not the case. Every Christian will walk through all the seasons of life and will experience every facet of life, he will be immune from none. Yet, as in all things, we are not defined by one season of our lives, nor are we defined by individual incidents in our lives, aren’t you glad about that? We shall be known by the thrust of our lives. It’s not about falling down, you will fall down, it’s about getting back up. Who amongst you believe that you will not fall down in this life? Idealists and younger Christians are particularly vulnerable when they fall. It’s a very humbling thing to fall down. Gal 6:9-10………..

Christianity vs Churchianity

Posted by appolus on March 20, 2012

The piece below is the kind of fearless voice that we need to hear in our own times because it seems that we are in this same position again. We had many moves of God in the last century and for that I praise God, but we have also seen the rise of the seducers and the false prophets in recent decades. Its not a surprise that the enemy would not sit idly by and allow the victories of the Welsh revival,the Pentecostal revival,the Hebridean revival or the moves of God amongst the hippies of the 60s and 70s to go unanswered.

Right alongside these moves came the rise once again of cheap grace. Movements like the Word of Faith, name it and claim it and unscriptural charismania are often easy to see and discern because they fall so far outside the realms of Scripture. Yet cheap grace is an insidious cancer that lulls its adherents to sleep and allows the world to mock their worldliness and rest easy because they see them as no different from themselves.

“They assume that the Church is an ark of safety; and once ensconced within her enclosures, all further anxiety ends. Let us try to unmask this dreadful delusion of the devil.” (AA Phelps, 1883)  

This above statement would also apply to those who came forward and signed on the dotted line. To those who lined up and signed up for fire insurance. Their ” ark of safety,” would be the their profession of faith. By merely giving mental assent to a few abstract truths, by saying yeah to points one through five, then all anxiety ends for they are now ” saved.” May, for their very souls sake, the Lord unmask this dreadful delusion before He returns-Frank McEleny

God have mercy, send us Prophets!

Posted by appolus on March 20, 2012

Leonard Ravenhill : Picture of a Prophet
The prophet in his day is fully accepted of God and totally rejected by men.

Years back, Dr. Gregory Mantle was right when he said, “No man can be fully accepted until he is totally rejected.” The prophet of the Lord is aware of both these experiences. They are his “brand name.”

Prophecy from 1965

Posted by appolus on March 17, 2012

Time and again the Lord has laid it upon my heart that there is a revival coming, but perhaps a better word for this revival would be a ” preparation.” I believe and have shared many times that I believe the Lord is gathering His people together, separating them and taking them through a desert experience. At the end of this desert experience I believe we will come out with a living word for the world, just as John the Baptist came out of the desert and proclaimed ” Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world!, ” we will come out and proclaim, with power, the imminent return of the Lord and we will call a world, under conviction, to ” Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed and get yourself a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die O house of Israel. For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies says the Lord God.THEREFORE TURN AND LIVE!(Eze 18:31-32)This message we will present to Christendom-Frank McEleny- The prophecy below is from Stanley Frodsham…….

100 Year old Prophecy

Posted by appolus on March 15, 2012

My own note would add that when this next great revival happens, I believe that it will be accompanied with severe persecution. It will be a time such as has never been seen before, a time when the enemy comes at the Lord’s church with everything that he has in an attempt to once and for all eradicate it. Yet be of good cheer brothers and sisters, the Lord has overcome the world. Greater is He that is within you that He that is in the world. The Lord equips those that He calls. His grace will be sufficiant for us as we pass through the waters of afflcition and the fires of hell that will come against us. The gates of hell shall not prevail against the Lords church-Frank McEleny

Sodom rises from the ashes!

Posted by appolus on March 13, 2012

As the curtain begins to fall on human history, we can see the poison of sin truly fester as open sores. The healing balm of Christianity loses its power as it becomes polluted by the very poison it sought to heal. When judgment falls, it falls first upon the church. When the rain is with-held then the land becomes parched and dry and made ready as tinder for the fire to fall. The terebinth leaves begin to fade because the garden has no water.

Have you ever been broken down?

Posted by appolus on March 7, 2012

Have you ever been broken down? Have you ever been totally defeated in this life? It could have been before coming to Christ, it could have happened to you after coming to Christ, but whenever it happened it left you for dead, it left you weeping. It robbed you of your song in the night, it silenced your praise, it left you hopeless for a time. It left you feeling that there was no way ahead, that everything that you ever had was lost? Inside you seemed to feel nothing.

Psalms and Poems and spiritual things (Psalm 139)

Posted by appolus on March 4, 2012

Hi Saints, as some may know, the Lord asked me to write a poem for every Psalm. As I contemplated what the Lord had asked me to do, it was a little daunting, but by HIs grace I am approaching the end, I am at Psalm 145. As I went along the Lord opened up to me what He was wanting from me. What I was bringing to the poem was the experience of a New Covenant Christian. So much of the psalms, more that I thought when I got down to it, was about justice, crying out for justice, crying out for vengeance against enemies and so on.

What is justice? On Christ the solid Rock I stand!

Posted by appolus on March 1, 2012

This link  http://www.box.com/shared/6dc0jj6eao is a recording made in 2010 from a Tuesday night prayer meeting that we have. It explores the meaning of justice, what does it mean, what does it take to forgive our enemies? How many times? Should we pursue justice? Deep questions, hard answers and lessons. The first 30 minutes is the message.
