Well, we are in that day spoken of in Matthew 24:6, Mark 13:7-8, and Revelation 6:1-4. I thought that, perhaps, since everywhere we turn, there is a battle going on, maybe, just maybe the Saints, the Christians, the people of God, the Body of Christ, the Church, or Somebody should come to the front line and declare some things? Someone asked, “Aren’t all of these groups the same? My answer is, “Technically, they are, but there is even war among us. There are some who will not identify as either.” Understand, there is an axe at the root of what separates us. Doctrine is one of these; our belief systems and our theology…as is seen in Mark 13:10…And this gospel must first be published among all nations!
I heard a dear colleague say that America has heard the Gospel but we have not wholly seen the Gospel demonstrated. We should all be declaring the same truths; instead, we declare our opinions and own beliefs. As a people who are called by His name, we all should declare the same thing, but we have created a modern scripture, which states, “We agree to disagree.” I do not know where that chapter is or how it fits or is validated by pre-existing Word, the doctrine of Jesus Christ. This plan has weakened the gatherings of God. Many say that we should contend for the weightier matters; I didn’t know that the Word of God housed unnecessary “words”, seeing that every word will be accounted for, even as we have heard.
Satan came quickly at the formative years of the church to bring division: Jude 3…Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the ‘common’ salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and to exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Most gatherings (churches) are far removed from the faith that was once delivered. Even in most of our culture today, one hundred forty-nine years later, we are yet being delivered from the incarceration of the pulpit. Hurting people, hurt people. Children live what they have learned and they have learned what they live. Enslaved people who are unreformed will enslave people. Humans have this thing about dictatorship, even in the “gathering”! The Church was never designed to become a type of hell for God’s people. But it did! The thrones of kings and queens are quite obvious; two small chairs and one large chair in the center, metaphorically speaking.
