I keep encountering a group of Christian thinkers who seem in my opinion, a bit too giddy about the prospect that all that’s happening to the world right now is God’s judgement and that we should all buckle down and suffer through it without pleading the blood or praying for Passover.
My issue is NOT that they believe this is judgement. As far as I’m concerned, this world will undergo judging circumstances for the duration of its existence because actions always create reactions, and all things have consequences… Some desirable, and some not.
What I have a problem with is this mindset that says it is wrong to pray for mercy, intercede, plead the blood of Jesus in this dispensation of Grace where God has made the shed blood of Christ available to us…
I have a problem with the religious mindset that would dissuade people from running to Christ’s strong tower name for refuge.
In regards to this picture I’ve posted, what I want to point out the most for those who use it as textual evidence for their adjudicating perspective, is the phrase where the Lord Jesus says: “BUT THE END IS NOT YET.” Whatever is going on in the world right now, as long as the church hasn’t been raptured out of here, and folks are still breathing, the CHURCH, Christ’s body, doesn’t stop what we do. We don’t stop spreading the gospel. HOPE. LIFE. GRACE. LOVE that is the person of Christ. Let’s not become assistant accusers of the brethren, or as some have said, so “heavenly minded that we’re no earthly good.” God didn’t put us here just to say “I told you so…” but to proclaim that grace is still available to all who will come while there’s time.
THE END IS NOT YET. Keep working folks. No dilly dallying around…there’s nothing to see here; there’s work to be done. It’s not time to pull up a chair, eat popcorn, and watch things fall apart happily. Even if things do fall apart, we’re certainly not rejoicing about it! God’s heart aches for the lost; …who are WE to gloat over them?
