What cause do you champion?

Posted by appolus on June 26, 2020

Hi saints. How many of us know that love of country is not the same as love of God? In America we see a very unhealthy mixture of love of country or love of culture with the love of God. There can be no mixture. Wait Frank, are you saying that it is wrong to love one’s country? Are you saying it is wrong to love my culture or my race? What I am saying brothers and sisters is that there can be no competition for the seat of our affections. Jesus must have all of our heart, all of it. No matter where a saint lives, if it is difficult or if it is easy, when God calls us to leave it behind we must be willing to do that. In this day and age when it seems so clear that the Lord is coming, we must hold all things loosely, all things. He cannot have all of our heart if much of our heart is caught up in the raging issues of the day.

Love of country or love of race is not the province of the child of God. The child of God’ eye is on Jesus and on the Kingdom that is and was and is to come. That is why we are sojourners and ambassadors for Jesus and His Kingdom. This is the kingdom that presently dwells in our hearts. To be wrapped up in a political war or a cultural war is to be AWOL (absent without official leave) from the real war, the war of light against darkness. The war against principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places.

When the Lord calls you out of Babylon, will you be so enamored of the things of Babylon that you will not be able to leave? When Lot’s wife had to leave Sodom, did it go well for her? What about when it was time to leave Babylon and return to Jerusalem after 70 short years, did most leave? The comforts of Babylon were too much for most, they would rather stay where they were than join the remnant people in the difficult place. A place where they were surrounded by enemies as they attempted to re-build the temple. Only one third of the Jews living in exile in Babylon left for home when they had the opportunity.

Those who chose to follow God in our day, follow Him and Him alone, whether they are black or white, will be deemed to be traitors to”their own.” We must have our identity in Christ and Christ alone. When we have that then we transcend partisanship and cultural backgrounds. We are a brotherhood, we are a royal priesthood, and in that alone we should find our identity under the Lord Jesus Christ. Will you fight for your race? Your culture? Your national identity? Where can that possible end be if the races retreat into their own corners? A house divided cannot stand. What house do you belong to? Is your house a cultural one? A national one? Or do you belong to the house of God? You cannot belong to two households, you will only be loyal to one.

Running with the crowd, no matter what that crowd stands for, is to run against God. You are a pilgrim on this earth, a sojourner. We are traveling through this world on our way home down a narrow path. The problem is, most confessing Christians do not believe that. They have joined camps. permanent camps. And each camp has its own interests which rarely if ever align with other camps. And so we war, it is what warring camps do. What has any of that to do with God? Culture wars, political wars, race wars. All of the devils making and none of it has anything to do with God. There is one God, He has one people, one Christ and one Kingdom. If you belong to any other camp, no matter the emotional appeal, you are in a state of backsliding. Separate yourself and only ever bow the knee to God even under pain of death.

The only sign to be given.

Posted by appolus on June 26, 2020

Mat 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.

The Lord will not commit to those who are not committed to Him. This present generation of loud and “tumultuous,” believers are seeking to establish the Lords kingdom here on earth. The sign the Lord gave them is not good enough for them. What sign did the Lord give them? He gave them the sign of the Prophet Jonah. Jonah was swallowed whole by the whale and to any observer, was dead, yet three days later he is miraculously alive and goes on to call Ninevah to repentance. Jesus would find himself swallowed up by death but three days later He would arise and He has been warning us ever since through His word and through His people and through every soul that has been resurrected from death into His glorious light of eternity.

In the quiet of faith, the Lord will respond to His own, He always has and He always will.He will not respond to a crass church which seeks to gratify their own corrupt lusts. So all of the church’s that cry out for miracles, the Lord knows the motivations of their heart. Signs and wonders would follow. Follow what? The preaching of Calvary. The proclamation of the Truth. The bold witness for Christ. The genuine love of the lost. So, those who place greater importance on signs and wonders rather than salvation’s do so for a reason. And in doing so, they expose the fragile nature of the faith that they claim to have.

The Lord will not commit to those who have built their houses on sinking sand. This is why we see the “house,” of ”believers,” come tumbling down when faced with “unanswered prayers.” For they are not established on the solid Rock of Jesus Christ and the cross of Calvary. “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.” Does your faith depend upon you seeing a miracle? Or does your faith stand upon the finished work of the cross of Calvary? Miracles are a bi-product of a glorious gospel not the primary object. That primary object is Jesus. And only when He alone is lifted up can we expect to see anything, as a byproduct of His glory.
