I heard a pastor of a big congregation say something like this: that a godly man could never be elected as President of the United States, and that we should settle for the best the world has to offer. Really?
No wonder the church today has no power! They refuse to be united in believing what God wants them to have and do. The church has accepted what the leaders of America are saying, “Didn’t we tell you that you cannot pray in school, or be on any government property and say the name of Jesus? Didn’t we tell you that you are full of hate when you refuse to accept that marriage is between any two people and not just a man and a woman? You must stop telling people that to abort a baby is a killing crime!”
Remember what I said a few months back, about a truthful lie? One man says a lie and then it is backed up by someone else saying the same thing, and therefore it becomes a truthful lie.
Rescue us Lord, from pastors and leaders of Your church who are afraid, and who compromise with Your words of truth! Help us, for You see our troubles. I know that you care about the anguish of our souls. Sin has drained our strength, and Your church is wasting away from within. When we refuse to confess our sin of disobedience the body becomes weak and powerless. But, when we Your children begin to confess our sin of compromise and disobedience, and stop trying to hide, oh what joy there is when disobedience is forgiven, and when strength and hope are renewed!
Help us to confess our rebellion to You, and kick these pastors out that refuse to believe in the whole truth, and that all things are possible to those who believe. You will forgive us, and our guilt will be gone. Therefore, our future is in Your hands. How great is the goodness You have stored up for those who fear You. You lavish it on those who come to You for protection, blessing them before the watching world. You will become our hiding place, and will protect us. You will guide us along the best pathway. You will advise and watch over us.
So rejoice in the Lord and be glad, all you who obey Him! Shout for joy, all you whose hearts are pure! Trust in Him and do not be afraid. For The Lord God is our strength and He will give us the victory, so tell the nations who He is! Rejoice that God has counted us worthy to suffer disgrace for the name of Jesus.
