Revival Blog 86
Sincere apologies for the tardiness in not regularly writing blogs each month - no real excuses, just a lack of discipline. This month I want to share about compromise that is occurring across our nations and more importantly in our churches. The compromise I am referring to is the preaching of the undiluted Word of God with clarity, exegesis, challenge and anointing. Here in America we have mega-churches and we also have the small gospel halls and if we are honest, we are making little impression on impacting the moral decline that is sweeping our nations. Whilst there are many issues facing the Christian Church such as Drug Abuse, Alcohol Abuse, Physical & Sexual Abuse, Corruption, Violence, Teenage Pregnancy, Pornography, Murders, Rape, Divorce, and Unnatural Relationships. etc, approximately one year ago I preached on two important topics regarding abortion and the LGBT uprising. Regarding abortion, the statistic I quoted are as follows:
According to WHO, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day.
In the USA, where nearly half of pregnancies are unintended and 4 in 10 of these are terminated by abortion, there are over 3,000 abortions per day. Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies in the USA (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.
My position on abortion is that it is cold-blooded murder. Secondly, the local daily newspaper and the local news channel recently brazenly reported that a drag queen was invited into the local library to read stories to young children. These "Drag Queen Story Hours" have evidently been spreading to libraries across the country, and target toddlers and young children, encouraging acceptance and embrace of transgender ideology and inappropriately introducing them to sexual themes and ideas". Where is the Christian Church, where are the parents of these young vulnerable children? My research has shown that most libraries work on annual budgets based mainly on city or county allocations, or property tax allocations. To quote the first 3 words of the Constitution: "We the People...." are paying good, hard earned money to support sin in our communities.
My reason for mentioning compromise is the things which caused men and women to be horrified and was clearly identified as sin is now acceptable and spreading like wildfire. Churches are now embracing gay couples claiming we should not be judgemental and the murder of unborn babies is quite acceptable. We have short memories and have forgotten the sin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and Romans 1 and Moloch, the Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice through the fire. We serve a victorious God who has an enemy the devil. 1 Peter 5:8 "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour". May the Christian Church wake up, may Preachers stop feeding their ego's and start feeding the people with the real Word of God and may we remember Ephesians 6:12 "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places". 10 Jan, 2020.
