And the pages of history turn

scriptureThe ruling of the Supreme Court will challenge every aspect of our faith and we will be the better for it, stronger refined and more confident in what we believe. For those whose faith is built upon anything less that Christ Himself, then they will be swept away by the flood and the cultural winds that are now blowing at hurricane strength.

Now why would I say that the cultural winds are blowing at hurricane strength? Has there not always been societal pressures in the West, cultural aspects of who we are that challenge our walk with God and our witness to our communities? In fact, the subject of marriage is one aspect of the culture in the west that has continually brought shame on what is known as Christendom. The truth is, the Christian community  has remained silent to a great extent on the fact that in so many churches up and down the land, 40-50% of their congregation are divorced. That alone disqualifies us from speaking from a position of authority on the subject. We do not hold the moral high ground on this subject and ours sins have found us out. God is not mocked, that which a man sows or winks at, he reaps. We are reaping today.

Dark comes the night

Posted by appolus on June 27, 2015

stormIt is not a pleasant thing
To walk into the wind
To walk in shades of grey
To dwell where all have sinned

It is a pleasant thing
To walk with you each day
To fellowship , to honor
To worship and obey

Each day the wind grows stronger
And the proud are standing tall
Each day the tide is coming in
And the pillars begin to fall

Truth lies broken in the street
And the structures are on fire
The Vandals and the Visigoths
Draw men into the mire

Sinking, slowly, unaware
Into the miry clay
Rebellious men without a prayer
Sinking deeper every day

When did the day become the night?
And all around is falling
When did the darkness quench the light?
And drown out God’s own calling.

Godless men rejoicing
In the darkness they call light
They are singing and they’re dancing
And arming for the fight

Oh children of the Living God
Find refuge neath His wings
Run now into your Tower
For we can see what this night brings

The hordes of hell are massing
The wolves are circling round
And evil is surpassing
With a mighty rushing sound

Yet Christ in all His glory
Is coming for His own
The culmination of His story
Ends with Him upon His throne

Stand fast ye children of the light
For though the day has come the night
We shall prevail and overcome
For Christ the battle He has won!
