Our only security is Yeshua, his anointed one. He is all about real salvation—from bondage, enslavement to the great dictator, the accuser. This is all way beyond ‘getting to heaven when you die’.
God says : Abandon all empty religion, all religious games and charades. All false gods and securities will fail.
Don’t count on the high ones who dispense religion.
Continue in humble, unknown, unpublicised, unsung, non-marketed, tiny groups—we are heard on high. We are precious in his sight. we are known.
We are his children.
We are still the people of God, though we suffer abuse and discouragement and misunderstanding.
Do not be fazed at the extent of the subversion of the truth by Christendom. With formality, legalism, coldness, smugness, arrogance, the lord-it-over-them leaders, Big Worship, the hoo-ha, the microphone and PA dependant minders, the masses flocking to be entertained while the world is dying .
We, the unheard of ones, can celebrate His ways— the LORD used ruthless Cyrus to further the salvation of his people Israel and their mission to a sea of lost humanity. Now he uses ‘unchurched’ people in their hundreds of thousands to show loving-kindness and concern and rescue from the humblest blokes who drove 200 klms to helped flooded people in Brisbane, and to a ‘unbelieving’ PM who wept openly. And in Victoria. And in Christchurch. Just watch as He moves people—his creation—everywhere, with compassion—people who march but not under the name of some churchy group.
People like 12 year old girl, ‘Ambi’ in Pakistan who was recently abducted from her family, raped repeatedly by her captors, forcibly wedded to one of them and held and horribly abused for months until she managed to escape and now she and family live with the constant threat of being found in a relocated place. But she is known by God and nothing would persuade her otherwise!
He will share his glory with no one. He alone is LORD. The only One worth our allegiance, our devotion, our trust.
“Our God reigns!”
