Outside the camp-coming persecution

Posted by appolus on April 8, 2015

temple-mount-stonesWherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. (Heb 13:12-14)

You see brothers and sisters, here we have no continuing city, we are pilgrims and sojourners. The foundations that we lay down in any one place are at best temporary. There was a fearful judgement to come upon Jerusalem and the temple system. There was also a prophecy given, apparently around 66ad shortly after James was killed, that urged the saints to flee Jerusalem to a place called Pella. Not to stand and fight and try to preserve that which was under judgement, but to flee. When you are within a walled city, it is very tempting to stay there and hide behind the protection that it affords. Yet, if you are told to flee then flee you must or suffer the consequences of the coming judgement.

Now we know that judgement begins at the house of the Lord. Judgment is coming to Christendom in the form of persecution. For those with eyes to see, they can already see the vandals scaling the walls and entering in. The pillars of truth are being torn down. The traditions of men are being demolished and overturned and before it is over, not one tradition will be left standing. Those who stay within the gates of Christendom will fall away into perdition. Brothers and sisters, if you live beside the sea and I warn you of a tsunami, then what would you do? Would you not drop everything, everything that you owned, all of your worldly goods, grab your children under your arms and head for higher ground?

The time has come for every saint to head for higher ground. It will not be found within the walls or behind the gates, it will be found out there where the only protection that you will find is in the arms of the Lord your God. Nostalgia for the traditions of men will not save you, your ancient traditions good or bad will not save you, you will only be saved in Christ alone. When God Himself has set out to tear everything down that is mixed with the world, then let us flee from that mixture. When you find your identity it totally wrapped up in Him. When He alone is your high tower, then you will find your place with others who likewise have found their identity in Him alone. You will not find this place within structures that have compromised with the world. In the coming years, every institution will be tested and will either compromise with the world or will be shut down. So many have already made the choice. Many more will. It is and will be the great exposer of the intent and motivations of the hearts of so-called leaders. The great majority will prove to be hirelings.

For those who find the Lord outside the camp, they will indeed bear the reproach of the Lord Jesus. Just remember, they hated our Lord first and they will hate us too. In not belonging to their clubs and institutions, conviction is brought to bear upon their heads. Coals of fire burning into the very essence of who they are and with that an ever-increasing hatred and persecution for the pilgrim saints who only claim Him and Him alone as their Lord. In the very same chapter of Hebrews 13 quoted above we are admonished to be content with what we have and know that He will never leave us nor forsake us. We are reminded to be bold in the fact that the Lord alone is our helper and we shall not fear what man shall do to us. The Lord Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    So many posts you write speak to me , I feel the darkness rising and my need for Jesus growing, in Him alone I put my trust, I find more truth on sites like yours than I do in established churches , I go to them for fellowship but I don’t feel the urgency in the people to be spiritually prepared for whats coming, is there anyone from Australia that feels the same?

      Yes me too, a fellow Aussie. I find myself alone in my longing for Jesus’ return. I find fellowship on sites like this one, who share my desire to be faithful to the Truth.

      Hi Sue, I am glad that you have been blessed by what you have read. This lack of urgency in the established church is not just in Australia, it is very much in the States where I now live and in Britain where I came from. I think what it really comes down to is revelation. I believe the Lord has laid it on many saints hearts and mine, this urgency. All we can do is simply share the truth as it is revealed to us. I have personally drawn a lot of wrath and criticism for the messages that I write. I have been accused of pride and arrogance and so on. Yet the message of coming persecution, coming unity of the saints through persecution, ongoing and coming judgment to Christendom are messages that the Lord has burned into me. And finally I can say that the opinions of men do not easily move me. It was a long hard road 🙂 All that matters in the end is what the Lord has called you to do, we shall answer for that before the Lord…………………..bro Frank
