How Firm is Our Foundation?
Many so-called Christians of today, call Jesus Christ Lord, but they do not do the things which He says and teaches in The Word of God. He is The Word of God, but many "Christians" today are being taught that they are above The Scriptures, and they do not have to follow The Bible.
They even go so far as to mock and ridicule those who are trying to live a godly and righteous life. The Bible says that those who try and live a godly life "will" be persecuted, and that is what is happening all around us today in America and all over the world.
2 Tim.3:12, "Yes, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."
Many Christians that once knew The Scriptures are now rebelling against them, and they are going the way that Lucifer went when he rebelled against almighty God. We have definitely entered into the time of apostasy or the falling away of many in the church.
2 Thes. 2:
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
In America today; we have many in the highest positions of ministry who have gone the way of Baal, Molech and their leader Lucifer. They are now teaching the youth to follow them in their pernicious ways.
These are ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing, and you will know them by their fruit. They have become the servants of Satan, and they are no longer the servants of Jesus Christ.
Luke 6:46 "And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47 Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great."
Christians should be warning about the coming judgement of the House of The Lord, but instead many are leading their members to the slaughter. They make pyramid plans and exalt themselves and place themselves at the top of their man-made pyramid.
Christians are commanded to expose "all" of the evil deeds of darkness, but many of the self-appointed leaders in America do not want to lose their positions among the elite that have the money, influence, prestige, tv coverage, and the big names. They use each other to promote their works of Satan, and so they are being used to keep the deceit and hypocrisy going strong.
These things go on in other countries, but America has no excuse because we were founded by godly men who fought very hard to secure our religious freedoms and our liberty. America has been targeted for first, demoralization and then, secondly for destruction.
It is happening now, but why aren't the Christian leaders outraged? Why aren't those with platforms warning the innocent youth and those who are being led astray?
They will be free from the blood of those with the lack of knowledge if they use their platforms to warn the people. However, I am not hearing any warnings from those so-called Christians that have the most powerful platforms. They will be held accountable for what they did with their influence, money and power to communicate all over the world.
When the storms come and the winds blow, what will become of the house that you have built. I heard that only a small percentage of Americas had read the New Testament, and yet Bibles can be found everywhere. We will have no excuse.
Those people who have dug deep into the Word of God, and they have laid a firm foundation; will stand strong in the evil days that are coming. They have dug down to the very Rock which is Jesus Christ, and they have been studying to show themselves approved as workmen that need not be ashamed.
John 14:6, "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me.”
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
John 17:17, "Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy word is truth."
John 1:2, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God".
The Lord Jesus is the “only” Truth, Way, Life, and He is The Word of God. You cannot get into The Kingdom of Heaven any other way! Jesus’ Word purifies and sanctifies the Christians so that they will be able to grow up into His image.
The Word of God produces the faith we need to walk in the footsteps of the Lord Jesus. Without digging deep into the Word of God; we will be weak, insipid and powerless Christians, and our houses will not be left standing in the end.
Turn to The Lord Jesus today and His Word, it is not too late to make Him your rock and your chief cornerstone.
Eph. 2:18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19, Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20, And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; 21, In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22, whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
How is your household doing? Is it built upon the apostles and prophets that came before us? Those who wrote The Old and New Testaments, and who set down a foundation for all of those who will follow them?
Is Jesus Christ your foremost and chief cornerstone? If He is not first and preeminent in your life, then your whole house will be off kilter. The cornerstone is the foundation stone that determines the location of all of the other stones in the foundation. They are all placed in reference to the chief cornerstone. The cornerstone dictates the future strength and stability of the entire structure.
In America; we are seeing many houses falling due to shifting sand, climate changes and insecure foundations. Companies that repair the foundations of houses have doubled and tripled their business over the last two decades.
Our spiritual foundation is far more important and crucial than our physical houses. The House of God must stand on The Rock of Jesus Christ, or it will be demolished with what is coming in the future.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
—Edward Mote (1797-1874)
I hope and pray that your House is built upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ. All other ground is sinking sand.
