Wednesday, October 28, 2015, 7:35 a.m. – the Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Broken and Contrite.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Jeremiah 7 (Select vv. NASB).
Hear the Lord (vv. 1-4)
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, “Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house and proclaim there this word and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah, who enter by these gates to worship the Lord!’” Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place. Do not trust in deceptive words, saying, ‘This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.’
Although these words were told to Jeremiah to tell to the people of Israel at that time, “All Scripture is God-breathed” and is “profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;” “that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16-17 NIV/NASB/ESV). So, what can we learn from this passage of scripture today, which would apply to our lives, to the church, to our nations, and to the world today? As servants of Christ, how can we stand at the gate of the Lord’s house and teach his words to the church, the temple of the Lord, and to our nations?
A gate is a door into or an exit out of a house or a building, or metaphorically speaking it is an opening, an opportunity, and/or access into something or someplace. The people of God of Jeremiah’s day were the Jews, who were God’s chosen people at that time. Not all had faith in God, though, which was evidenced by the many who did not go into the Promised Land due to disobedience and unbelief. The Jews were also a physical nation. So, if you were to have access to God’s people today, of a particular nation or all nations, in order to speak the Word of the Lord to them, what might that look like today? I believe the internet presently is our gate into the church and into the nations of the world today where we can share the truths of God’s word and give his messages to the people.
The message I believe God would have me to share today, though it could apply to many nations and peoples, is directed primarily to the United States of America and to the church in the USA, which is where I live. I believe God is calling out to his church to reform her ways and her actions, yet I believe he is addressing these thoughts also to the people and to our government within this nation, and not just singularly to the church. So, what are these ways and these actions which need to be reformed? For one, I believe that we need to stop saying that America is a Christian nation, and that we are one nation under the one true God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, because it is just not true. We are not a nation which honors God as the holy God that he is, which reveres him, respects his authority, and obeys his teachings, not even within the church much at all today.
We also need to stop saying that the institutional church or a building is the church, because that is also not true. The church is comprised of believers in Jesus Christ. The institutional church is a business of human-origin with the government as the head, and is largely driven by human marketing schemes, humanistic philosophy, and even syncretism – a blending of different religions, schools of thought, culture, and opposing beliefs into one. Meetings in buildings called church in which the world is invited in, and is entertained, and where the gospel is diluted in order to appeal to the flesh of humans is not church. Also, we need to stop trusting in deceptive words which say that all people are the temple of God, or that all who pray a prayer are saved and going to heaven. The Bible is real clear that if we say we have fellowship with God, but we walk in darkness, that we are liars and not truth tellers.
Hypocritical Liars (vv. 8-11)
“Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail. Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal and walk after other gods that you have not known, then come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’—that you may do all these abominations? Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” declares the Lord.”
The United States government, which is in headship over the institutional church via the church’s partnership with the government, is an evil entity, which is under the control of Satan, not God. From the very beginnings of our nation many of our forefathers were adherents of syncretism, which is evidenced by the various buildings and statues in Washington, D.C., and by our national symbols, etc., much of which is patterned after foreign gods and goddesses, the occult, freemasonry, and Satanism, and which lays out for us the purpose for the USA from the beginning, which was to lead the way to the rise of the beast (New World Order), and to the conquering of all national governments, peoples and Christians worldwide. I believe our nation is the prostitute which rides the beast. By the church’s partnership with this evil government, and by the church’s promotion of worship of such government, the church in the US has become culpable for this government’s crimes against humanity. That is why God keeps calling his church to come out from her.
The US government, in partnership with and in preparing the way for the New World Order “Beast” to rule the world, has been going throughout the world for some time now invading other nations under false pretenses, confiscating their natural resources, killing at will, taking land not theirs, destroying houses and lands, conquering peoples and nations, persecuting and killing Christians, and doing so in the name of God, humanitarian aid, democracy, the conquering of terrorism, and protecting the rights of humans and the sovereignty of our own nation, but that is all a lie to cover up their true intentions. First they create a situation such as an unnatural disaster, an uprising, a riot, mass murders, et al, so that they have an excuse to invade other nations (and their own). Then they come in with a solution to the problem which they created, and the solution is to bring the world together as one in harmony, i.e. to bring us all under the rule of the “Beast.”
The news media is largely under the control of the US/N.W.O., and thus they spew out the stories which the N.W.O. wants us to believe, most of which are all lies, or are a mixture of lies and truth. Many of these situations reported in the news are total or partial fabrications. The incidents they are reporting could be completely staged (acted out) or partially staged and partially real, or they could be real, but the roles are reversed, such as we blame other nations for doing what our nation is doing. For instance, the government often plays both sides of a situation in order to create a persona or a situation in which they will be required to go in as “Saviors.” Some of these uprisings and terrorist situations are totally acted out by the US/N.W.O. so we can come in as the “good guys” to save the day, but that is a lie. Our government recruits, trains, equips and finances terrorist organizations, such as the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and ISIS. ISIS is US/N.W.O. I believe they are a privatized prussianized military force of the New World Order, in helping them to conquer nations and peoples.
There is no such thing as Republican and Democrat, or fair elections, for it is all staged. This budget deal is not for the benefit of the American people, but is a deal with the devil to bring our nation under Global Big Brother, which is a totalitarian regime, with communism in the mix. Obama and the Pope are major voices (spokesmen) for this New World Order. The real “climate change” is political, and the change is to the New World Order “Beast,” and to this one-world government and religion, and to the persecution and killing of Christians and all opposing forces to the rule of this “Beast.”
America is being destroyed from within, but most Americans still believe the lies their government feeds them every day via the media, and thus they have no clue as to what is going on in the world and behind closed doors. This refugee crisis is also about the takeover of nations by the N.W.O. Most of what they feed us via the media is rubbish, i.e. nonsense (all made up). So, we have to stop believing everything we read, hear or see on TV in the news, and we have to begin testing everything we hear, read and see in prayer, and in God’s word, praying for much discernment, and asking the Lord to show us what is true and what is not, so that we do not fall into the trap of deception.
This Global Big Brother is on the precipice of overtaking the United States of America, and us coming under the rule of this New World Order. The signs are everywhere we look now days, if we will just open our eyes and be willing to see. One day soon, all that we have worked for on this earth that is not of God and not of his kingdom, is going to disappear. And, we will have to make a choice to serve God or the Beast. There will be no more middle ground with one foot in the world and one in the church. We will either conform to the N.W.O. or to Christ and his teachings. It would be good to make that decision now.
But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’ ~ v. 23
Broken and Contrite / An Original Work / May 13, 2012
I come before You, Lord, my Savior,
With humble heart and crushed in spirit.
I bow before You, I implore You,
Heal my broken heart, I pray.
Love You, Jesus, Lord, my master,
You are the King of my heart.
Lord, purify my heart within me;
Sanctify me, whole within.
Oh, Lord, I long to obey fully
The words You’ve spoken through Your Spirit.
I pray You give me grace and mercy,
Strength and wisdom to obey.
Father God, my heart’s desire,
Won’t You set my heart on fire?
Lord, cleanse my heart of all that hinders
My walk with You, now I pray.
Oh, Jesus, Savior, full of mercy,
My heart cries out for understanding.
I want to follow You in all ways,
Never straying from Your truth.
Holy Spirit, come in power,
Fill me with Your love today.
Lord, mold and make me;
Your hands formed me;
Live Your life through me, I pray.
