God Is Not Impressed

(The following stems from a prophetic dream I had coupled with a heart-retching "worship" service in a church I visited. It is not meant to single anyone out, but is meant to point to all of us, that we might check our own relationship with God and make sure it is what He wants, not something we've been led to believe is what He wants. – David Brollier)

"God is not impressed with your pageantry.” A lying spirit has snuck into many churches today. It says, “You need to compete with the world if you want people to come in.” This thought infects our song services, our preaching, virtually every area of our worship, so that we no longer worship God, our Heavenly Father, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Scripture says, “I am God, you will have no other gods before Me.” Jesus told us that in the last days there would be a great falling away. The apostle Paul explains that in the last days people will heap to themselves teachers who will tell them what they want to hear. This lying spirit is slowly moving us off of Jesus, our sure foundation. The Truth is always presented in a package, that itself may not be Truth. In fact it is often these false prejudices the hide the Truth from our minds and hearts. The package, however, is like the shell of a seed. Jesus said, “Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies it can in no wise bear fruit.” Was Jesus saying Truth must die? No, for He also said, “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:18) What Jesus was saying was that our prejudices our preconceived notions about what Truth is must die, the shell that surrounds the Truth, so the Truth may come alive in our hearts and bear fruit. Yet this lying spirit has let us to cover the Truth with layer upon layer of “stuff” to the point where we have begun to worship the shell that must die that surrounds the Truth and not Truth.

As Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24) God calls to you and me today to take that seed of Truth, cast it into the prepared soil of our hearts so the shell around the Truth will die, and even fertilize the Truth within.

The time for playing games is over. The time for putting on a skit and calling it worship is through. God is not impressed with you, or my, pageantry. He comes to us today. He is among us to forgive and to heal and to bless, yet if we do not put out this lying spirit from our churches the Almighty will write over our doors, “The Glory of the Lord has departed.” In that day great shall be the falling away. We must not trust to new music, new fads, flags, streamers, tears, shouts, all of which may have their proper place, but we must trust in the Lord alone. He will not share His glory with another. Return now and repent while He calls to you, while there is yet time.

Modern Day Saints in Prison

Update on Marzieh & Maryam
Maryam and Marzieh are doing well despite being imprisoned for four months. The Voice of the Martyrs contacts report they remain courageous and trusting in God. In June when a judge told them he would make sure they were both executed as "apostates", they responded with courage, telling the judge to "expedite his sentence." Following the recent political turmoil in Iran, 600 women have joined Maryam and Marzieh in Evin prison.

We encourage you to continue praying and writing to Maryam and Marzieh to make sure they are not forgotten. They have been strengthened by the prayers and help of believers like you. Write to the government requesting they be released.

Getting Things Straight

I get all kinds of emails from Christians around the world. Those I receive from those in the US are disturbing. They talk about how anti-Christian President Obama is and propose various ideas and legislations to bring us back to a Christian society. Hang in there and you'll understand why this is disturbing.

In God's Word King Solomon received this promise from the Lord, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2nd Chronicles 7:14)

That sounds like a map to get us back to where we need to be, but it's only part of the map. We actually have to humble ourselves. We actually have to pray and see the face of God. We actually have to turn from our wicked ways if we want God to "forgive their sin and heal their land."

Now there are many out there that will say, "That's what I'm doing." This is where the other side of the coin is revealed. In the Chronicles and the Kings we have a list of kings from David up until they are led captive in Babylon. Some kings were good, and did what was right. Most did that which was evil. One good king, I believe it was Joash, King of Judah (you see already their evil had spit the nation) ordered the cleaning out of the Temple to make it worthy of the Lord. While they were cleaning out all the garbage, the idols, the things that belonged to other idols, men found the book of the Law. We would know this as the Torah or the books of Moses. They brought it back and read it before the king. Now pay attention. As they were reading this the king tore his clothes and fell (I believe) on his face. The very reading of the Law showed him how evil he was, even though he did that which was right. He ached for the people he ruled over and destroyed all the idols, grinding them into dust. Then he had the books of the Law read before all the people and the priests and Levites cleansed themselves and began to offer up sacrifices for the people.

You may be scratching your head, wondering why I'm bringing up this ancient history. The reason is simple. As long as we try to blame someone else for the troubles we are in we are part of the problem. Until we truly humble ourselves before God, how can we turn from our evil ways? If we do not turn from our evil ways, we, the CHURCH, then our nation will continue to come under the persecution of God. It's not that God likes persecution, but He wants us to come to Him.

Many in our churches are writing their own rules, their own laws. Our hearts have grown hard. While certain people may be doing harm to this nation, they can do no greater harm than we, who call ourselves Christian, and act in ways that do not seek God out or fail to humble ourselves before our Maker. You see, God sets all authorities over us. That means President Obama and all the rest. I'm not saying they are right. I'm saying that God has sent us into our own Babylon by appointing people who would increase the burdens on our back.

Do you see it? Jeremiah prophesied this, as did Isaiah, and a number or others. Are we greater than Israel that God would stand aside for our "democracy"? We are in contempt of His court, and unless we get things right with Him they will only get worse.

The way back is through a veil of tears. Each of us must listen to the law of love that Christ spoke of, and remember that God is Love. How far have we fallen from our first love? What is in store for us if we do not return? These are the things we should be directing our energies to.

Not Political

There are lot of angry people out there following the 2012 election results. While I can understand why they are angry I also realize that anger may be one of the things that is pinning us down in this society.

Fact 1: Just about every news outlet has shown us just how poorly Pres. Barrack Obama has led this nation. He has apologized to people who are our enemies, and have stated that after Israel we are next to be destroyed. This should be scary to say the least.
Fact 2: Obama has driven the country's debt higher than all previous presidents combined.
Fact 3: It is obvious that Obama does not want the people to have the right to make their own decisions. Perhaps the South was right to secede from the Union in 1860. Some people get the idea that the Civil War was about freeing the slaves. While that did become a factor, the real issue was State Sovereignty, and I think they were right in that.
Fact 4: While we have the privilege to vote for the candidate of our choice it is actually God who establishes authorities over us. How God does that is in direct proportion to the way we, as Christians, have, or have not obeyed Him. Currently God has handed us over to a cruel task-master.

So what does all this mean? Why am I bringing this up? I am bringing this up because there are worse things than a president bound to destroy our nation. Many of you may disagree with me on that. It seems to me that as long as you and I regard this nation as the top of our priorities then we will continue to be angry and bitter with our president. This is such a crazy thing to do.

One person shared with me that unforgiveness, bitterness, and anger directed towards anyone, is like wishing they would die and taking the poison ourselves. This is what America is currently doing. We are taking poison in hopes that some other person dies or is incapacitated in their duties, in this case, President Obama.

As Christians we are to forgive, even as Jesus forgave us. Do you think that you, by your own hand, find any goodness in the eyes of God? If you do then you better change your way of thinking. Scripture tells us that there is none righteous, no not one, and that Jesus offered Himself up to die for us that we might be seen righteous through Him. Dare we think any less for the one God has placed over us?

I do not agree with Obama. I believe nearly all his policies are corrupt and seems almost calculated to destroy the United States. And yet I forgive him, with the help of the Holy Spirit. For if I rebel against Obama I am rebelling against God.

The Bible says, "If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways then shall I hear from Heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land."

Time is working against us. It flies by like a barn swallow. If we do not repent now, we may never have the chance. The cup of God's wrath is already being filled. People have warped His words to support their own deviant behaviors; anger, drunkenness, sexual lust, and yes homosexuality. These also we must uphold in prayer and forgiveness. I have friends who are homosexuals, but they know my beliefs as well. I don't preach to them, nor do I put them down. People are people.

For instance, the shooting in Connecticut have nothing to do with guns or mental disabilities. It has to do with the presence of evil, and we must realize that this evil exist in all of us. The evil in one may provoke the evil in another. Jesus came into the world for this very purpose, to destroy that evil in us, but He can only do so to those who respond to Him.

While I would normally be writing about the birth of Christ and the miracles that surrounded that birth I believe it is more important to remind you, to remind me, that God is God. I'm not. Therefore I have an obligation to forgive anyone who has slighted me, and that includes the President. In fact, look at your life and pray for every person God has placed over you. Only as we seek His face and repent can we find the healing of God on this nation
