Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

This is something that amazes me as I can not perceive what goes through the minds of those who know truth, but yet ignore truth and sell themselves out for another’s distorted gospel so they can feel socially acceptable in the eyes of others, but yet allow themselves to be condemned by their own actions. Are we more concerned by what others think of us or should we be concerned what God sees in us as His servant that needs to be letting the light of Christ shine through us to present a Gospel of truth to others instead a gospel of carnal interpretations.

Matthew 28:16-20 is our commission from Christ and set forth in His spoken word. There is an urgent call for those of us who will not compromise the word of God and will stand on that very foundation of faith that is Christ Jesus that we are also partakers in His life, death and resurrection taking no concern for ourselves what others can and will try to do to us, but surrender all of ourselves to Christ to be worthy of His glorious calling so we will always be pleasing to the Father in all things of servitude. Be not afraid of those who persecute you even to death for there is nothing more they can do, but fear (respect) Him (God) which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28.

We need to take the word of God out to a world that is being deceived by the one (Satan) who has set up his pawns and or puppets to teach his twisted word of God from the pulpits of this world. Satan uses those without Spiritual knowledge to deceive the hearts of seemingly good people to cause them to be separated unknowingly from the truth of Gods word that is received through His Holy Spirit, John 14:26. Salvation is by God’s grace through the finished works of the cross where Jesus paid the price for our sin. Those who reject truth will lose their very souls for the wages of sin is death, (sin here means to reject truth), but life is eternal with the Father for those who have picked up their cross and follow in the footsteps of Christ, Romans 6:23. We must be born-again Spiritually through that of Christ Jesus that only comes by the grace of God to all who will call on the name of Jesus so they can see the Kingdom of Heaven, John 3:3-7.

The world’s stage is being set and the players are selected to come against and take control over Jerusalem as we can see with our own eyes how the enemy (Satan) is coming against Gods promised land and the finale act will be when the son of perdition takes his seat in Jerusalem ruling from the same place that once housed the throne of David, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.

The urgency is great upon the earth and the inhabitants there upon it to know truth that will set them free from God’s wrath being poured out into the world in the end of days that will consume those who are not of God and is Christ.

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father only.
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be.

The falling away is happening even as I write this that many have removed themselves from the love of God by following after their own gods of power, money and greed as they become lovers of their own selves. People did not believe Noah and continued in their sins and died in their sins. We do not know the day or the hour of Christ return for His true Bride and like Noah we must be about our Fathers business until he sends his Son Christ Jesus to take us up to meet him in the air and we will hear those words of grace and mercy that says “Well done thou good and faithful servant “.

Hebrews 10:24-25 King James Version (KJV)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

a command
Hosea 4:5-7 King James Version (KJV)
5 Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.

6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
the pied piper has piped and has led the children away ..there is not much real preaching that goes on these days

in the last days, false prophets shall arise, deceiving the very elect if possible.

on the plus side, as it becomes un-cool and un-fashionable to be a Christian, those who remain will probably be more committed (personal guess).

what goes through the minds of those who know truth, but yet ignore truth and sell themselves out for another’s distorted gospel
deception happens slowly as bit by bit the authority of the bible and its trustworthy ness is removed.

That said there is nothing wrong with asking questions, it is where one looks for answers that matter.
We need to take the word of God out to a world that is being deceived by the one (Satan) who has set up his pawns and or puppets to teach his twisted word of God from the pulpits of this world.
We are in a world deceived by a distortion of the truth and who believe many lies.
We need to oppose this by holding to the truth.

This is radicle, many churches, many Christians do not want the truth to be boldly proclaimed. They are comfortable with merely hearing the gospel being preached.
The idea that the bulk of every sermon should be a factual proclomation of the truth, relevance and practical application of Christianity to our lives desturbes them.

Test it, ask how many Christians in church follow apologetic blogs.
Ask your minister to preach on 'Christian Morality for our lives!'

The gospel turned the world upside down, because believers lived it.

The first churches that were established through the great commission, Matthew 28:16-20, the Disciples were preaching in individual homes, caves and fields as they had to hide from the Roman government that ruled over Jerusalem and all the other provinces that persecuted the Christians. Truth was preached as everything the Disciples taught, plus Paul came straight from the one and only source which is Christ Jesus.

Society wants a feel good message, but true Christians want truth that only comes by the Holy Spirit.
