So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house. Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” (Mark 3:23-29)
A despicable underdone has carried itself alongside the American Christian’s walk since the fall of 2016. Election season. So many houses divided – God’s houses and His people’s. Jesus warned about this in the verse above. The above statement is all to clear that if a house became divided it would fall, as would kingdoms. As Believer’s, many in the United States (and other countries) have severed the three cord covenant, hence breaking the bond of God’s word. Tell me brother, tell me sister: where is the Holy Spirit when you are slandering not only your brethren in Christ, but your countrymen? God has spoken: Nowhere to be found!
There is a remnant who remains calm and collected over the political tirade many whom profess Christ have lowered themselves to. Pastors, shame on you for participating in the division that has transpired – yes, anointed ones, you too are guilty. What kind of shepherd would lead his congregants, and others whom he or she may influence, straight into hell on earth? Is this Christ-like?
Who is the King of Kings?
Who is it that every knee will bow down to at the end? It is certainly not Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton. It is definitely not the media or billionaires or Isis leaders.
It appears many Christians have lost sight of God; instead, throwing Jesus’ precious name under the social/political bus and letting him be crucified all over again in the months since November 2016. How can God work in this situation if people do not trust in Him? He is still in control and we are explicitly told in the Bible to pray for our leaders, regardless of who they are: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” (Romans 13:1) Too many behave as though their “idols” are lord because that is what people have turned politicians into: the Savior of this world.
Can you not see brothers and sisters – this entire scenario is a plot Satan has crafted to divide the body of Christ. And guess what? God let him! He must be shaking his head and asking himself: Where is MY love amongst my people?
At a time when the pulpit and church should be a sanctuary, and our brothers and sisters in Christ, allies, the house of God is instead, divided. Therefore, THE KINGDOM of God is divided. How can His church be a Light unto this world if we are dimming the Lord’s light in our own windows? Why are so many Christians forgetting who is in control? The LORD GOD Almighty. Not you. Nor hatred. Not politicians nor the media. Forgive me but what has been portrayed is a cheap version of “love” for mankind, in a very ungodly manner.
This, sadly, is a sign of the times foretold in the Word of God!
It is time brethren to get your focus back onto the great I AM and allow yourselves to be led by the true spirit of God and off of the impostor who provokes you to anger and division. Please think about what you are allowing to control you – this is not a godly spirit but a Jezebel/Harlot spirit that is infiltrating (and laughing heartily at) the body of Christ. Remember, we are called to Christ and being Christ-like!
“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience…” (Romans 13:1-14)
One thought on “A Body Called to Christ, Not to a Church Part 2”
You’re so right about the shift since the Fall, election! And very, very sad how some clergy are not working towards peace. Like you said, people aren’t versed in scripture, many are more concerned about this life, this country more than God’s kingdom. I frankly don’t know that many who know much about End Times. There IS a remnant that He will keep to Himself, but I ache for others to belong too. Good article –
