Backwards_Forwards_by_kegonomics  32 Meanwhile, some were shouting one thing and some another, because the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had come together. Acts 19:32

 

We are living in a time filled with much uncertainty, chaos and confusion. In fact, everything is backwards, let me explain. Today up is down, down is up, left is right, right is left, forward is backwards and backwards is forward, good is bad, and bad is good. Let me go a step further; imagine that you’re in this gigantic room that is brightly lit, having several entrances and exits, and there are a host people inside the room almost innumerable. Imagine that all of a sudden the lights go out and you hear over the loud speaker for everyone to head towards the nearest exit. Oh, that is no problem, you might think to yourself, ok it’s so dark in the room you can’t even see your hand in front of your face. Now how do you navigate to an exit to secure your safety?

This room is the heart of man and the time that we live in, the bright light is God, and he is being removed from the room. What we are left to contend with is a depressed state of mind. This world has always been wicked, at least after the fall of man in the garden. There was a time when men retained the knowledge of God in their hearts and often found themselves in church or synagogue after committing a sin, and thinking this would somehow cleanse them of their sin.

It is this practice that has led us to this current day; why do I say that? Well, each generation is responsible for their successors, meaning that our parents set us up for this time and theirs for their time and so forth and so on.

I am amazed at this generation’s fascination with the images of death, skulls, snakes; upside down crosses, curse words, on their clothes as if these badges of honor. Lest we do not get into the conversation about tattoos; people have lost their minds and are covering their bodies with just about everything imaginable, and every phrase under the sun, and even some that we have not identified. Nothing questioned as it pertains to its origin or validity, and people are following each other into whatever seems to feel or right, a sure sign of confusion.

We should expect this type of action from the world that is dark, but these things are happening in the church as well. Homosexuals are claiming that their lifestyle is good in the sight of God, ordaining themselves, as Bishops, Apostles and the like. Truly this is the last and evil days, and we are rapidly approaching the rapture of the church from the earth. I pray that I am in this number when the trumpet sounds. To be left here afterwards will not be a good thing according to The Book of Revelation chapter 13. Life is going to be extremely hard for those unbelievers converted to Christianity. In chapter 14 their work will not be in vain. In fact, anyone left here after that time will be considered to be tribulation saints dying as martyrs, laying face up having their heads cut off. The very thought of this type of punishment should be enough to scare the “hell,” out of a person and cause them to want to change, but we know many will play it out all the way to the very end!

I don’t want to give the impression that everything is gloom and doom and no way out or safety because there is a way. What needs to happen at this point is the church needs to take a hard look at its practices, and the leaders must revamp the direction of their congregations. It cannot be about riches; it has to be about souls and only souls. That means titles have to be second to the mission; love is the most important aspect of our mission on earth. Jesus said if we love him; we would keep his commandments.

Search your heart, give hope another chance and love your neighbor. It begins with the person in the mirror; recognize your value and then you’ll see the value in others. We know that we win so let us start the work again until the end; PEACE AND BLESSINGS!
