I read with humor, of the impending death of Christianity. One person recently wrote that, each passing day without the return of Christ is another nail in Christianity’s coffin. . .soon the religion of judgement and divisiveness will die out. . .if they only knew. Reading the news each day, is reading Biblical prophecy coming to life. . .
Another unfulfilled prophecy:
Damascus is a mere 80 miles or so from Jerusalem. How many of the lead stories in today’s news, are controlled and have as their source, the drama and conflict surrounding Jerusalem?
The falling away of belief in God is prophesied, the coldness. . . the blindness of people to God is not evidence of the death of Christianity, but is prophesied by the Word of God. . .
Today as before the flood, people are completely involved with their own lives. . . blind and ignorant. . . unconcerned to the horrific sin of the world that will soon bring judgment to all.
As we stand on the corner proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ available to all men. . . We are ridiculed and derided. By many, we are thought to be at best quaint anachronisms, and at worst we are blamed as the root cause of the world’s problems.
No my friends, we do not fear or despair the end of Christianity. . .
We do despair the blindness, and deafness of the world around us.
We do despair of our inability to reach more.
But as our faith continues undiminished. . .
We continue to pray for our world. . .
We continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. . .
We continue to try to reach our world. . .
I love you my God. . .
I love you my Lord. . .
