Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Rome is burning.....and Nero is playing his fiddle!

(Archibald Brown)

"But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them — that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood! When I say to the wicked, 'O wicked man, you will surely die!' and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his ways — that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood!" Ezekiel 33:6-8

We behold this same evil affecting many of the pulpits of today's churches. Mere morality is taking the place of regeneration, and the atonement by blood is a slighted subject. Instead of beseeching men to be reconciled to God — we find ministers wasting their time in giving Sunday lectures about all kinds of subjects. Rome is burning — and Nero is playing his fiddle! Souls are perishing — and ministers are amusing them!

Yes, today's "ministers" are nothing more than stand-up comics, charlatans of the highest order, delivering their message of "love" and "tolerance" and "acceptance" of all who claim to be a "Christ follower." This despite the fact there is no fruit of repentance in them or their "flock". Instead we find indoctrination, those who perpetuate lies and build upon them with more lies, requirements of their "flock" to bow in total submission to the (self-appointed) 'authority' of the 'pastor/elder' all of which requires a complete abandonment of the Gospel and the Lord Jesus Himself. The fruit of this is seen in the manner and volume of the cries that go out whenever one of their "golden boys" (and golden girls) is exposed for the fraud that they really are. Few there be that actually "defend the faith" anymore, while the multitude grows daily of those that will defend their idol "preacher" and/or themselves. May God judge accordingly.

How very true Darrel, we have men pleasers all around us and phony Christians with no backbone upholding these minions of Satan. I do pray for our Lord to come and put an end to all of this....come Lord Jesus!!!
