Holy Ground-in the desert

Posted by appolus on January 22, 2015

While Moses was on the mountain being stripped of all his rights –
because that is what was meant by the removal of his shoes –
Israel was in the valley being stripped of all human strength. Moses
would have no rights; Israel, no strength. God could prove Himself
strong on their behalf in no other way. The great “I AM” was being revealed! (David Wilkerson)

After 40 years in the wilderness Moses is ready, Israel is ready. In taking off his shoes, Moses is removing the world from him and acknowledging a holy God. God was working and the backdrop to that working is banishment, wilderness dwelling and slavery. God refines His people in the fire. Now, the fire is kindled by the world not by God. The fire is a reaction to a redeemed people. Note the reason why the Hebrew children were being forced into the fire. They refused to bow down to the gods of this world. They defied the powers that be and were willing to die rather than bow the knee to the gods of this world. This is a spiritual principle played out down through the corridors of time.

Soon the stripping away phase will end and the results will be open persecution of Gods redeemed. For Nebuckadnezzar , he was so enraged that he made the fire seven time hotter. The children of Israel did not fare much better when Pharoah was confronted and defied. In these times, great movements of God were preceded by great hostility to His people. Christ is coming back in all His glory in the sky. There is great movement in the heavenalies and the principalities and powers know that. God is preparing a people who will stand in that evil day.

John the Baptist cried out from the wilderness after more than 400 years of silence from God ” Behold the Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world.” Gods own people in this day have been walking through a wilderness and there is something in their bones that they know ” Behold the Lion of Judah is coming in His glory in the sky.” God is not finished preparing His people for the soon coming evil day, but get ready saints to ” remove your shoes.” The Great I Am is getting ready to bring an end to all ages. The culmination of everything written is soon coming to pass. You know it, you do not have to be convinced, the Spirit in you tells you so. The powers that be know it and they will not go quietly. We, the children of God, are their deadliest enemies for we are bearers of the light. Hold fast, stand strong, lift up your heads for you know where your help cometh from. And no matter what happens , remember the words of the Hebrew children in defiance of the essence of worldly power and let us add our words to theirs, we neither will ever bow down to the gods of this world, even if it means our lives…….bro Frank

Rev_12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Nepotism within Christendom

Posted by appolus on February 28, 2014

NEPOTISM IN THE KINGDOMS OF MEN

Anyone who has ever been around the power structures of the kingdoms within Christendom know that powerful men put into place men who will not question them. They typically surround themselves with what the world would call ” yes men.” It is of course the opposite of the Biblical model but perfectly in line with the world and how it runs itself. It is interesting that we hear and know nothing of the children of the Apostles. Why? Because it was not a dynasty, it was not a family business where sons and daughters are promoted by virtue of who their fathers are. Time and again we see this within Christendom. David Wilkerson managed to avoid so many of the problems of other men with similar sized organisations. He could have easily promoted his own son and groomed him to take over when he retired, but instead he puts an ex-policeman from Canada into that position. Sadly he is a very rare exception. Jesus has to be preeminent in our lives, in our gatherings and in our structures and we have to be but mere bond servants to the cause of Christ and to those who follow Him.

When shall the end come?

Posted by appolus on January 18, 2014

“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”
(Matthew 24:14).

Many in the church today try to determine the nearness of Christ’s return by reading the signs of the times. We see such signs in specific; for example, the return of the Jews to Israel. Yet one of the clearest statements Jesus makes about His second coming is contained in the verse above. The end will come only after the gospel has been preached to all the nations as a testimony. The word that Jesus uses for ” witness,” in this verse is the same Greek word for ” testimony.” In short, He says the Gospel we preach is effective only if it is backed up by a life that testifies to its reality. ( David Wilkerson)

Do you see what David is saying here? It’s not about the Gospel preached, it’s about the Gospel lived. The Gospel lived out is a testimony to the power of Jesus to transform men into new creatures. It’s not so much the correctness of the doctrine, although doctrine is important, it’s about the reality of the witness. The genuine saint living a life empowered by Jesus is a witness to the world. Can we say that Christendom today is a witness to the world? In the average church in America, all the stats of the world on matters of divorce and such are simply the same. The world cannot tell the difference between themselves and Christianity. So, not only is there not a witness for Christ, there is a vehicle for mocking.
