WITHOUT A DOUBT- the most prevalent failure of God’s people throughout redemptive history has been their lack of resolve to remain separate from the unrighteous lifestyle and value system of the society and culture around them. “Also all the chiefs of the priests and the people trespassed greatly in accord with all the abominations of the heathen, and they polluted the house of the Lord which He had hallowed in Jerusalem.” 2 Chronicles 36:14
If history has revealed anything, instead of abhorring and abstaining from the immoral values, customs and lifestyles of the world; all too often the people of God are attracted to and then conformed to the culture in which we live. Paul’s letters are hammered out of concern to remain faithful to the gospel preached to them. Christ’s messages to the seven churches reveal patterns of unfaithfulness to Him by adopting worldly values.
So here we find ourselves in 2020, an apostate church shaped by the world’s morals, pastors preaching tickling messages to appease the masses, an “I’ll do what I want” mentality, an adulterous generation seeking for signs and polluting the church, treating her as a prostitute. A time of judgment is at hand. What is the Lord asking us to do? Repent and fall down in humble submission. Return to Him and His ways and He will abundantly pardon and heal. Revival is not you running around in the Spirit; but falling down in repentance, changing your mind and seeking His face. Another great awakening will happen when God’s people repent.
