Report From The Tower
Some little wisps of the presence of God remain in a few of the churches: enough to heal some minor ailment perhaps or provide just enough impetus to allow someone to still convert to Christ and be born again. Not much remains! How long will even that small wisp remain? God alone knows that answer. He is departing from His temple. The lamps are being snuffed out as we speak. He is beginning to smash the pyramid shaped, Senior Pastor headed business church model to dust and the remnant saints are beginning to be scattered like dust in the wind. Most of these are like comatose men or men whose hearts have stopped, who wait for the defibrillator of the double judgments to shock a few of them back to life in Christ.
Still, the show must go on. Thousands and tens of thousands of churches continue on without the power of God, just as their Roman Catholic counterparts have done for hundreds of years. Great big men, with evil kingdoms in mind, as brother Russ Taff sang about almost forty years ago. They want your money and your time and they will not come down from their thrones or the places of glory they have established for themselves, as the prophet Jeremiah prophesied in chapter 13, verse 18.
Some of you will mock me and yearn for your old time religion, that was good enough for God in grandpa's day. Surely it is good enough for me, you say, but alas, it is no longer good enough for God. God has moved the goalposts; He has changed the game; He has ushered in a new day and has begun to enforce rules He long ago expounded yet chose to wink at in days past, but you then will cry out in the familiar pleating cry that God is not being fair. Fair? We would be headed for hell if God were fair, yet you desire fairness only where it provides a favorable outcome for you.
Consider here what Paul spoke to the men of Athens, for it is happening again to the believers in Jesus Christ in this hour who continue on, worshiping without the presence of God, in churches were a form of godliness is presented that denies the power thereof:
Paul in Athens Act 17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry. Act 17:17 Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him. Act 17:18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection. Act 17:19 And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is? Act 17:20 For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean. Act 17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.) Paul Addresses the Areopagus Act 17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. Act 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; Act 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Act 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Act 17:32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter. Act 17:33 So Paul departed from among them.
Some of you say that the Holy Spirit does not even come to live inside of man any more. Others of you teach that the Holy Spirit comes in to you, but He never speaks to you any more, nor does He empower any to do any wonders any more. You fools! You are worshiping a God whom you do not know. To you, He truly is AN UNKNOWN GOD. Others of you remember when God moved in power in your churches, yet you do worse than these others do, for now you tolerate services where God's presence is absent, where God's voice is never heard and God's power is never displayed through any of you. Once, you knew better, but now, even that which you used to understand has been taken away. Truly, as it was before, so it is once again. God winked at such ignorance in times past but He now commands all men to repent.
Those few of you vigilant ones who are still reading this article at this point may want me to answer that which I stated in the first paragraph above. What is the solution I speak of? How do we fix it? Come out of your Senior Pastor headed, Mystery Bablyon controlled, money loving harlot churches. Come out of all of these daughter harlot churches. Hold clean meetings in your homes. Repent of your wickedness. This is a time of battle: gird up the loins of your mind and be sober, not giving every waking moment over to satisfying your lusts (1 Peter 1:13) but concentrate on your personal purity and holiness, for there is no victory over darkness without purity and holiness. Joshua discovered that just after the triumph at Jericho and the abject failure in the attack on Ai. A little defilement can go a long way to rob God's people of their power. You have been robbed and most of you don't know it. The devil is a thief. He won't stop until he kills you and all whom you love.
