Hit or Miss

Do you know your job title for Christ, are you aware of your responsibilities and are you performing them to the best of your abilities?

I fear that many who call Christ Lord are at best “hit or miss” Christians, in fact I am concerned that many do not even know where the mark is. Unless we are being quenched by the media, I see no response from the body of Christ toward the current affairs around the planet, I see very few reports of Christians standing up and proclaiming the truth of these days, instead there is silence, there are locked church doors, there are my friends born-again believers wearing masks while the survival rate without any long term effects of any kind for this so-called “crisis” is far above 97 percent.

I see many of the world protesting against these lies, and I see the punishment that is being inflicted upon them by the powers that be at this time, so perhaps that is the reason. Fear is a very powerful persuader. Perhaps we are not doing what we have been commanded to do, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17) But the verse that generally comes to the forefront of my mind is Proverbs 24:10 “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”

Evil always grabs a foothold when Christians do little to stop it, this was first made obvious in the garden of Eden, “And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat,” (Gen. 3:12) instead of our first parent saying to the Lord, “Eve ate of the fruit, she has sinned against you, I can no longer accept her as my wife.” Strong words, perhaps too strong for the average Christian today, perhaps we are just always to forgive and then let the world go along its merry way.

I have read the Scriptures, this day that is approaching was foretold many thousands of years ago, and is reiterated throughout the Word of God, it will not be stopped, no matter how much we pray, no matter the efforts we put forth. In fact, we are told to do one thing in this present evil day, we are told to stand. So are you? Are you fulfilling your job responsibility, are you warning, are you speaking up, are you telling all you meet of the way out of the wrath of God that is approaching?

Fear, as I have said many times, is a great persuader, but fear is what we are all being asked to face. I would ask that you seriously consider the verse in Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” These are brothers and sisters of ours who do not know Christ as Savior yet, these are they who will be left behind after the rapture (Matt. 24:41) who will give their hearts to Jesus during the tribulation, and who will willingly die for Him during that time, they will not love their lives to the end.

Met any Christians like that lately, have you? No, I thought not, because we are in the apostacy, we lock the church doors and put on masks and still call ourselves servants of the Most High God. Many of us are not standing, many are simply just going about their daily lives while acquiescing to all the demands that a sinful, ever faster falling evil world places upon them. And these my friends are just the beginnings of sorrows.

So then, what is your job title, to speak about our Lord only in the safest environments, to profess His name only to those you believe to be part of the body of Christ, to sit on the sidelines and watch as your brothers and sisters are harassed, scorned, mocked, and persecuted. If you are one of these I would ask you to think of the most personal, shameful moment in your life that you can recall, then multiply it times one hundred, for that is the shame that you will feel when you look into the eyes of the Savior and He asks you when and how you stood for Him in the day of adversity, and you have no answer. I cannot bear that thought, nor should you be able to.
