Polarized Christianity-Art Katz

Posted by appolus on December 6, 2015

This emerging true Church will finally grow sick of the hype and the banal predictability of a merely phraseological Christianity. It will seek the deeper reality of faith and relationship, counting the cost and increasingly taking on the visage of pilgrim, stranger and sojourner in the earth. Those that remain in conventional church situations, either impervious to the need or unwilling to pay the price, will settle under a deception of religious unreality, condemning as heretics and agitators those who cannot abide the same. Centrifugal forces will polarize Christendom ultimately toward two camps – persecuted or persecutors – reminiscent of the opposition of the Reformation churches to the Anabaptists of the 16th century! Finally, impending unity will drive the religio-political kind to fury against that minority of the Spirit which will not subscribe to their ecumenical designs.

So once again, and finally, a man will find his enemies to be those of his own household; yet, one’s love for his enemies in response to opposition and persecution will be the distinguishing mark of this consummating, remnant-martyr Church. Such a response will be the possibility of those whose conscious, determined preparation and sanctification begins now.

The light of His countenance in such a separated people will be the very factor that brings upon them, as it did Stephen, the retribution and assault of those who hate the light and prefer darkness – from without but more so from within the church. Radical apostolicity or apostasy will prove the only options during this polarization in the end-times. Neutrality or middle-of-the-road alternatives will be waste and void. We will be, finally and at last, compelled to be saints, perfecting holiness in the fear of God, in an age when the only other option is to wear the mark of the Beast.”

    Thanks Frank for this post. I’ve appreciated Art Katz’s insight to so many thing we see today. I re-read Apostolic Foundations once a year just to be refreshed.

      Hi Rev, yeah, Christendom lost a good voice with the passing of bro Art. I felt the same way when David Wilkerson passed away. Fearless men of God sadly missed…………………..bro Frank

    Frank,

    I’m not familiar with Art Katz, but definitely familiar with his message! I use to minister this theme heavily back in the 80’s when I saw the rapid rise of Christian “Entertainment” both on the TV and in the churches. I won’t be around to see the fulfillment of it, but I’ve seen it “afar off” for decades.

    May God continue to bless you with your blog and your anointed ability to express in few words the spiritual truth of the coming end time … which you may live to experience.

      And may the Lord bless you to bro Tim. A.W.Tozer was another prophetic voice that spoke much about ” Christian entertainment.” Thank you for your faithfulness to the message that the Lord laid on your heart…………bro Frank
