I greet you in the only name above heaven and earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Just recently, the Lord has directed me to Turning Point by Dr David Jeremiah. The month of May, he has being doing an amazing series which has blessed us mightily. We are seeing these amazing events around the world which Jesus spoke about: wars and rumours of wars, mighty fires in California, earthquakes, volcanoes, and the list goes on. The Bible says these are the birth-pangs before the end. I myself am spending a lot of time in Revelation, 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18 and 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52.
Sadly much of the church is asleep. Pope Francis has just made a statement that Protestantism is dead and there is only one holy, catholic church. He is having major meetings with major pentecostal leaders from around the world, faith groups and the faith teachers such as Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer and their entourage, which David Wilkerson spoke about, Charles Lawson is still speaking about. Many of these megachurch leaders such as Joel Osteen have kissed the ring of the Pope. Do they understand by kissing the ring they are bowing to his authority and denying the death of the martyrs from the reformation, many of which like Wycliffe and many that can be found in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs died in vain?
My brothers and sisters, we are entering into a time of major heresy when Joel Osteen can say all roads lead to God, Oprah Winfrey and Gloria Copeland state clearly that Jesus was just a man that was touched by the Holy Spirit in the Jordan. It is time that the big pentecostal movements such as the Assemblies of God and Elim, the Bible colleges of this nation and America and the TV channels such as the God Channel, Revelation TV and United Christian Broadcasters came out against these people. Where are the men of God that once told the truth? Why are they not speaking out? People like Donald Gee, Eddie Durham, George Jeffreys, Stephen Jeffreys and the founders of the Assemblies of God must be looking down from heaven and wondering what on earth is going on. The Bible says, wake up you sleepers. Sadly most of the church in the United Kingdom, the United States and the West are fast asleep and leading their congregations down a broad road. The Bible says,
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practise lawlessness.’”
Matthew 7: 23-33
So if you support these ministries you are enabling them to lead many astray and there could be a judgment for you too. We all know that at the end times there will be two judgments: one for believers, and whatever your theological stance is you can work that our for yourself, and the great white throne for those who reject God’s offer of full salvation and God’s gift of grace.
So, my brothers and sisters, it is time to speak up, warn our brothers and sisters of the heresy that is in the church, even though you will not be popular, but my understanding of the gospel is that the apostles were not popular. Whenever the church advances it is never popular. When it gets comfortable and sups with the devil, Lucifer leaves it alone. When you speak out for Christ you will be attacked, but as Paul said, great is your reward in heaven.
If you agree with my statements please add your comments. If you do not agree, still add your comments. But I suggest you go before the Lord, get your house in order, as the Lord is coming soon and it will be too late for those that you know and your loved ones. It is our duty to witness to them whoever they are or wherever they are. I for one will be a watchman looking for the master’s return.
God bless you.
