Jude’s Warning, the Corruption of “Christian”

This morning as I reread the book of Jude, I was once again reminded that not only are we living in the Last Days, we’re living in days of incredible deception within the “church” especially as it relates to those who call themselves “Christian.” In a recent article I mentioned a Barna research study which stated that 85% of people in America identified themselves as “Christian.” However when asked a series of questions about what they believed to be True or Truth regarding the Deity of Christ, the inerrancy of Scripture, or the Biblical truth that through the completed work of Jesus Christ at Calvary lies the only pathway to eternal life, only 9% could affirm a true Biblical Christianity. Understanding this, it is quite apparent to me that in the world today, the majority of “Christians” aren’t and the “church” they may or may not attend isn’t. This comes as no surprise because even from the time of the inception of the Church, Jude warned of this very condition.

“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:3-4 

Jude’s warning here is that certain men have crept in unnoticed and corrupted the “church.” Who are these men? Unfortunately they are men (and women) who purport themselves to be ministers of the gospel. They hold positions of leadership in churches, denominations, and seminaries with titles such as “bishop,” “apostle,” “pastor,” “evangelist,” “doctor,” or simply “minister.” Nevertheless, the one thing they all have in common is that they have corrupted the Truth of Scripture and have invented a liberal theology and a liberal “Christ” denying His authority, deity, dominion, and power.

These false teachers and preachers who have “crept in unnoticed” are no more than self-serving charlatans who use the name of Jesus for self-glorification, and to line their own pockets with what the Scripture calls filthy lucre, by promoting their own agendas and encouraging their faithful to give sacrificially to build their “church.” This is what Jude meant in verse 4 when he said they “turn the grace of God into lewdness.” The “church” of these false prophets and false teachers has no resemblance to the Church in Acts 2:42-47, and they seem only to exist for the purpose of “doing church.” Emotion has replaced Doctrine, Function has replaced Fellowship, Programs have replaced Discipleship, and sadly what passes for Prayer these days sounds more like a “give me” list to God rather than adoration, thanksgiving, and supplication. No longer do they point people to the Cross of Christ where His blood was shed for the remission of sins, but instead teach a false Christ whose inclusive love places no emphasis on their need for repentance. The Cross of Christ has become an ornament to wear rather than a symbol of the pain, suffering, and death which accomplished our Salvation. Again, Jude describes this in verse 4; they “deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Most “churches” today celebrate the humanity of men, pointing to the man (or woman) who leads them, rather than recognizing the sovereignty of God. “Christians” are no longer Christ’s ones as they were so designated in Antioch because of their desire to be like Christ, but instead today the name seems to apply to just about everyone. The name “Christian” has been opened up to so much deception that it is absolutely astounding to me. Many consider themselves “Christian” because America is supposedly a “Christian” nation, there are a plethora of cults that call themselves “Christians” and the majority of institutional and denominational “churches” as well as “Emergent” and “Mega-Churches” are dead or corrupt in their religiosity while still calling themselves “Christians,” yet they do not truly follow Christ!

In the little book of Jude, verses 5-15, God’s attitude toward these apostates who call themselves “Christians” or the “church” today is described. Their sin is defined in verse 8; because they “defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries.” And in verse 10; they “speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.” Verse 11 summarizes their sin in examples from the Old Testament with a stinging indictment; “Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.” Very simply stated, the way of Cain is the rejection of a blood sacrifice, in other words, they reject the blood of Christ in favor of self-improvement. The error of Balaam is the desire to attain personal wealth by making a business or profit out of the service of God. And those who perished in the rebellion of Korah did so because they rebelled against the leadership of the Lord. Verses 14-16 tell us that God will enact judgment on these false prophets, teachers, and preachers.

Friends, verses 17-23 of this wonderful little book tell us what the believer’s role is in the midst of all of this End Time apostasy. Jude instructs us to be; “building yourselves up on your most holy faith” we do this through being people of the book, studying and obeying the Word of God. He then instructs us to be “praying in the Holy Spirit” which means to be guided by the Spirit in our prayers seeking the Will of God for our lives, And then we are to; “keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life” and we do this by living lives of holiness and godliness before Him as we look for and anticipate the imminent return of Jesus Christ for His True Church, those of us who really are “Christ ones” True Christians.

In the darkness of these Last Days where Satan, the ruler of this world, has taken control of so much, having invaded the “church” and its leadership, we True followers of Christ must heed the warning of the Apostle Paul and “put on the whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:10-18). We must Watch, Stand Fast, and be Strong (1 Corinthians 16:13) until we see Christ. It is our responsibility to be light in this world of darkness (Ephesians 5:8), and we must Watch and Pray (1 Peter 4:7), because;

Jesus is coming soon!


American Revival; National or Spiritual, is either possible?

This may well be the most personal post I ever put up on this blog. As a Preacher, Teacher, Pastor, and Ministry Director I dedicate much of my life to the study of God’s Word. I love all Scripture, but I have a particular interest in Eschatology, the study of End Times Prophecy. In light of this, I truly believe it is a fact that we are living in the Last Days, and in fact the very end of days.

As I prepare the “Signs of the Times” update to share each Sunday morning with our church, and on Tuesday here on the blog, I look at the condition the world is in politically, morally and spiritually. I see the conflicts which rage on every continent as man’s inhumanity to man demonstrates itself in all types of violence, consuming lives because of; political differences, ethnic differences, moral differences, religious differences, or just plain old greed. In the Middle East, God’s chosen people, the Jewish Nation of Israel, is surrounded by people’s who clamor for her to be wiped from the face of the earth, and finds herself increasingly abandoned by the United States.

Here in the United States of America we find ourselves internally in the same conflicts found in the rest of the world. As a result of the policies of this present administration, there is an increasing intolerance towards Christians, emerging class warfare because of an ever-growing economic divide, and escalating racial tensions on a scale not seen since the 1960’s. The moral decay in this country rivals that of Rome under the emperors Nero and Caligula. Abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, the legalization of mind altering marijuana, and an entertainment industry in which pornography has become its largest moneymaker. We have a failing educational system which has embraced compromise and tolerance rather than exceptionalism and competition. Our schools teach our children that there are no absolute truths, no wrong answers, and that they are not personally responsible for their own actions.

The corruption within our national government has grown to epidemic proportions. We have a President who is ruling by executive order circumventing Congress at every opportunity, who routinely lies to the American people without repercussion or consequence, and an Attorney General who not only breaks the laws of this country but refuses to enforce them as well. We have an EPA rife with internal corruption yet by executive order have been given unprecedented power, an NSA, again by executive order, which is spying on the American people, and an IRS which is being wielded like a bludgeon against conservatives by the President and Democrats in Congress. Under this administration the US military has been weakened while the DHS, the IRS, the BLM, the TSA, and other government agencies have been militarized as domestic security forces.

Early in his first term as President, Barack Obama stated that we were no longer Christian nation. Personally, I don’t believe we ever were. I do believe that this nation was founded on Christian ideals and principles and that the 10 Commandments are the foundation of our legal system. I believe that at one point in time the majority of the citizens of this country at least worshiped as Christians whether or not they actually had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But, as far as I’m concerned, I believe the Bible clearly teaches that the only “Christian nation,” are those people who have accepted the free gift of Salvation provided through the shed blood of Jesus Christ at Calvary, and who are described in Scripture as the body of Christ, whose Citizenship is in Heaven, and not anywhere in this world. That having been said, I find great sorrow in the fact that few “churches” in America today are preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead, they have become social institutions, or proponents of a word of faith prosperity gospel, or a humanistic self-help gospel, or are embracing the idea of the united inclusiveness of all religions, or some other form of theological error. Regardless, Ichabod, “the glory has departed” has been written above the door frames of the majority of these “churches.”

I was born a citizen of the United States of America. I have loved this Country, I have served this Country, and I have helped to build this Country. I grew up in a small town, played baseball and was a linebacker on my High School football team. We recited the Pledge of Allegiance everyday in school, had prayer before ballgames, and sang the National Anthem. The doors on our homes were always unlocked, and our rifles and shotguns hung in gun racks in the back windows of our pickup trucks because, we just might be going hunting after school. I was a cowboy, tended cattle, hauled hay, and competed in rodeo. We had picnics on the Fourth of July and watched fireworks, celebrating the freedom we enjoyed living in this great nation, while all the time understanding that freedom isn’t free, and had been dearly paid for by the men and women of our military.

I was proud to be an American, proud that I lived in a country where I could vote my conscience, vote for and have respect for those who would govern and lead our country, speak of and worship openly my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and instill in my family these same ideals. But as an American, I have watched this Country’s heart and soul destroyed from within. Liberalism and socialism took root in our institutions of higher learning, and has now usurped power in our government. This has resulted in the fact that we have been forced, in the name of compromise and tolerance, to exchange liberty for security and freedom for socialism. As a nation we have turned our back on God, demonstrating the same sinfulness and wickedness found in the world in the days of Noah and Lot. Repentance is no longer preached from our pulpits, Salvation has been replaced with self-help, and teaching of the Second Coming of Christ has been supplanted by Preterism. The majority of people in this nation no longer worship the God of the Bible, but instead worship at the altars of self, sport, entertainment, or money.

In light of all of these things the question must be asked, is there any hope? Can America be saved?

As a Christian, as a blood bought born-again child of God, as a believer in and a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, I will tell you there is always hope. Hope that true followers of Christ, men and women with a biblical worldview, would speak up, be elected to office, and in other ways stem the tide of spiritual, moral, and political decay. However, as a student of Bible Prophecy, because I do not find the United States in End Times prophetic Scripture, I must admit I truly believe America’s time has passed. But, although I do not see a patriotic national revival, I still hold out hope for and am fervently praying for, a Spiritual revival in America.

Once upon a time in America, we were a nation who at least honored God. Today that is not so, for we have allowed the enemies of God to gain a place of prominence in this nation. The enemies who trouble America are neither imported nor homegrown. We find that enemy identified in Ephesians 6:11 & 12. “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” We as followers of Jesus Christ must recognize that even though America may be lost, her people do not have to be. Our enemy is Satan, yet Christ Jesus has promised us the victory.

It is our responsibility, to share with the people of this nation and in fact the world, the truth of the Gospel. We must tell them that Jesus paid their sin debt, and ours, at Calvary, and by their confession and repentance, making Him the Lord of their lives, He offers them eternal life. And we must tell them of His imminent return for His Church, the body of Christ. We must do this because the Word of God tells us that this world is not going to get any better. In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 Paul warns Timothy; “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  Certainly this is a description of mankind today.

Once again I will tell you we are living in the Last Days. In Ephesians 5:16&17 Paul tells us we should be “redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” What is the Lord’s will? It is His will that all men would accept His gift of Salvation. 2 Peter 3:9 says; “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” We must be sharing the Gospel message of  our Lord Jesus because;

Jesus is Coming Soon!

Until He comes to rapture His Church we need to keep praying for a spiritual revival that will not only sweep this nation but the world because;

Jesus is Coming Soon!

Long ago I adopted Ezekiel 22:30 as my life’s verse; “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”(KJV) And, it is my prayer even now that God will make me that man, and continually work a spiritual revival in my heart and mind, so that I may continue to be the preacher, teacher, and leader servant that He wants me to be. I will also be praying for Him to revive the spirit of every Christian who has remained true to Jesus Christ, so that we might see many souls redeemed in these Last Days. Will you join me in this prayer?

Jesus is Coming Soon!


The Importance, Truth, and Certainty of the Second Coming!

It has become our practice for the Sunday posts, “Words of Grace for Strength,” to take an excerpt from a book and then add commentary on the passage. Today I will make a slight departure from this formula, in that my commentary will precede the excerpt. The authors and their writings which have been chosen to quote in this series, are some of the greatest Biblical Preachers and Teachers of the past two centuries. This has been by design, in order to show that a good understanding of Biblical truth is timeless. However, unfortunately in this current day it is becoming harder and harder to find writings worthy of quotation. Today there are many “preachers and teachers” who no longer hold to scriptural truth, literal interpretation, and a correct contextual exegesis of God’s Word.

Paul, in his second letter to Timothy (2 Timothy 3:1-7) warned that in “the Last Days” perilous times would be marked by men who, although they appear godly, would in fact be dominated by their lustful desires; lacking the ability to understand truth. And Peter, in his second epistle (2 Peter 2:1-3) describes these men as false prophets and false teachers who unfortunately will exploit many, leading them away from truth into destruction. John writes (1 John 2:15-28) a warning to believers about these false teachers and false prophets, describing them as having at one time appeared to be followers of Christ, but in truth, they had not accepted by faith, His identity and gift of eternal life. Again, they are described as having a desire to turn people away from the truth of who Jesus Christ is, and what the Father wants for His children.

This is the conflict we are in today. There are many standing in pulpits around the world who are teaching psychology, materialism, socialism, environmentalism, deism, pantheism, and even atheism. The Truth of the Gospel is better than any of these teachings. There are those who are teaching that God is love and that Jesus loves you, yet avoid the subject of sin and the need for repentance and sanctification. And there are still others who seem to have their theology about half right; yet they deny God’s future plan for Israel, the rapture of the Church, the reality of His Millennial Reign, or His literal Second Coming (therefore making half right, ALL wrong).

The Truth of the Gospel is very simple. Jesus came the first time as the Son of Man born of a woman. Fully man and fully God, He lived a sinless life in order to pay our sin debt on the cross at Calvary. There He died crying out “it is finished,” was buried, on the third day rose from the dead, walked among and taught His disciples for 40 days, before ascending to heaven, where He sits at the right hand of His Father. Today we await His imminent return for His Church, and His Second Coming in power and great glory to bind Satan and destroy his armies. The Truth of the Gospel isn’t about how God can be a blessing to our lives, it is about the fact that because of what He has done for us, we need to be blessing Him with our lives.

There are those who will not hold to the whole Truth of the Gospel, but only some portion of it, even if it is only a small part of the Truth which they seek to leave out. This is nothing more than the sinful pride of man trying to control his own personal destiny, only trying to make the Lord fit into a box of man’s own making. Instead, they take the fullness of the Lord out of a Book of the Lord’s own inspiration. When someone does so, it is the enemy himself who moves in and feeds the “spiritual” or “religious” cravings of the individual, for they have turned from accepting the fullness of the Lord to the emptiness of any other way but Him, and Him alone, and Him in all His glory, love and wisdom.

In his book, “The Return of the Lord Jesus,” R.A. Torrey writes of the importance, truth, and certainty of the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. And his last chapter describes what our attitude should be toward that return.

Today this is where we find;

Words Of Grace For Strength!

We Should Earnestly Desire the Coming of Our Lord. In 2 Peter 3:12 we read, “Looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of the God by reason of which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.” If we love our Lord above all else we will long for His return above all else. How a true wife longs for the return of the husband who is across the sea. No gifts that he can send her during his absence will compensate for the absence of the husband, so the true bride of Christ longs for the return of the heavenly Bridegroom. While she may rejoice in those measures of grace vouchsafed her in the present through the indwelling Christ, she longs for the return of the Bridegroom Himself.

I once heard of one who had been widely proclaimed as a teacher of advanced truth say that there was a time when he was greatly interested in the Second Coming of Christ, but that of late years he had been so taken up with the glory of the indwelling Christ that he had lost interest in the thought of His return. This utterance was thoroughly unscriptural. To me it is incomprehensible on the part of one who really knows the truth about the Return of our Lord. It is well to preach the present privileges of the indwelling Christ, but there is something better than even this, our Lord Himself is coming; we shall see HIM; we shall be caught up to meet HIM; we shall be ever with HIM. And if it is Himself we love and not merely His gifts, no joy and victory that we may know through the indwelling Christ will satisfy the deepest longings of our soul. We shall long for Himself and for that fullness of fellowship with Him that we shall only know when He Himself comes again. There is a crown awaiting those who “loved His appearing.”

It is doubtful if there ever was a believer on this earth who knew more experimentally about the glory of the indwelling Christ than the Apostle Paul, yet one of the last things he wrote was, “Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge shall give to me in that day; and not to me only, but also to all them that have loved His appearing” (2 Timothy 4:8). May I put a plain question to you, Are you longing for Christ’s return? If you are not, you may be sure there is something wrong about your life somewhere, or about your relations to your Lord.

Our Lord Jesus is coming again – precious words! How they ought to thrill our hearts! How they ought to lead us to inquire diligently lest there be anything in us that will grieve Him at His coming. How they ought to make our hearts burn with the desire to do more and to use our talents more faithfully while He tarries. THE LORD JESUS IS COMING! How small these words make the world with its gain and its loss, its pomp and its pride, its pleasure and its pain, its praise and its blame, to appear. OUR LORD JESUS IS COMING! How these words should make us eager to bring our friends to Christ at once lest they be “left” at His coming. OUR LORD JESUS IS COMING! Yes, He is coming, perhaps this year; perhaps this month, perhaps tomorrow; perhaps today. Are you ready? Listen once again to His own last and sweetest promise, “Yea, I come quickly.”

Signs of the Times: SIN is SIN; Israel, Iran, Russia, Ukraine, US, China, North Korea… oh; and the Weather and Natural Disaster!


At the risk of sounding like a broken record, for the fourth week in a row a winter snow storm has descended on the East Coast and Washington DC. Of course while this is more than a little unusual, in light of our update over the past month it certainly shouldn’t be unexpected. Even as President Obama meets with European leaders at The Hague in the Netherlands, his administration continues to hold out hope that they can force Israel and the Palestinian Authority into accepting their “Framework for Peace.”


On Saturday Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s defense minister, said in a March 21 speech at Tel Aviv University that the United States is “demonstrating weakness” around the world. And, Caroline Glick, a senior contributing editor to The Jerusalem Post, says America, through President Obama, is “inviting this sort of aggression by countries like Russia, by countries like Iran, by showing such profound weakness in foreign affairs.” The Washington Times reported, Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to complain about his defense ministers comments, and he continued his pressure on Netanyahu to make concessions with the Palestinians in the so-called peace process.

Meanwhile also on Saturday morning March 21, a rain-soaked hillside collapsed swallowing dozens of homes near Oso, Snohomish County in Washington State.

Rescue workers searched through mucky rubble on Tuesday with hopes dwindling of finding any more survivors from among as many as 176 people still missing from the devastating weekend mudslide which killed at least 14. More than 100 properties were hit by the mudslide. John Pennington, Snohomish County’s director of emergency management, said that after three days, the operation was shifting from a rescue operation to a recovery mission.

Is this merely coincidence, or another instance of another severe weather natural catastrophe resulting from continued pressure by the government of the United States on Israel to divide their land and eternal capital of Jerusalem? (Once again I encourage you to review our past Tuesday posts for more information.)

In other news concerning Israel, a rising chorus of Israeli voices is again raising the possibility of carrying out a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities in what appears to be an attempt to draw renewed attention to Tehran’s atomic program — and Israel’s unhappiness with international negotiations with the Iranians. Despite ongoing talks and negotiations between Iran and the West over the Iranian nuclear program, Israel is taking no chances. Based on recent statements by senior military officers, a whopping amount of at least 10 billion shekels ($2.89 billion) has been set aside by Israel for a potential unilateral military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities in 2014. This decision reflects the determination of the Israeli government not to be bound by the interim accord that was reached between Iran and the US led Western nations.

Israel’s decision is based on the stated need to ensure its self-defense even as it becomes clearer that the Obama administration and the U.S, is not going to lead the campaign against Iran or to be a dependable ally for a military solution against Iran.

Joel Rosenberg has recently commissioned McLaughlin & Associates to take several Polls which have noted some interesting results.

In one exclusive new poll: 72% of Americans see Putin as a “clear and present danger” to U.S. and Israel. While other polls showed that 85% of Americans are concerned young people don’t know enough about the Holocaust or are learning lessons of how to confront evil.

In another new poll conducted at the request of Rosenberg: 68% of Americans fear a “nuclear holocaust” here in U.S. if Iran is permitted to build nuclear weapons, and the most recent of these polls find that: 59% of Americans support “decisive” US strike on Iran to prevent “Second Holocaust,” if diplomacy & sanctions fail. All of these polls seem to reflect a completely different attitude by the American people than that of our present administration.

Russia & Ukraine

As of Monday Russian troops have completed the takeover of all military bases in Crimea, and Vladimir Putin continues to ignore pressure from the international community. As I stated last week, the takeover of Crimea is a done deal, and as Russian troops continue to mass on the Ukrainian border, I believe it is only a matter of time, perhaps days, that Russia will invade and take over the rest of the Ukraine. President Obama’s war of words with Russia and Vladimir Putin continued on Tuesday from the Hague, as Russia was removed as a member of the G8. However, Russian leaders continue to mock the weakness of Obama’s leadership.

In other International News

North Korea fired 30 short-range rockets into the sea off the east of the Korean peninsula early on Saturday in response to continued joint defense drills by the US & South Korea.

China continues to help in the search for the missing Malaysian Jet, yet has used the experience to move more of its naval fleet into positions in the disputed territorial island groups in Japanese and Philippine waters.

The Malaysian Prime Minister meanwhile announced that they have determined that the jet crashed in the South Indian Sea and that there were no survivors. Chinese authorities have demanded to see all of the radar and satellite information which precipitated this announcement.

In an interesting commentary on the incident, Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Christian evangelist Billy Graham, recently drew a connection between the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and the Rapture, as described in Thessalonians 4:16-17. She made the connection on her personal blog just after the plane went missing, suggesting that the feeling of unknowingness and helplessness that has affected the world since the flight disappeared on March 8 will be the same feeling experienced by mankind when the Rapture happens and Jesus calls his church to meet him in the air and join him in heaven. She concluded, nonbelievers will be left to wonder: “Where have all the people gone?”

On the Culture front

Nabisco has added its voice to the current trend of forcing liberal social agendas on the rest of us by producing a commercial for their Honey Maid graham crackers and Teddy Grahams snacks showing a homosexual couple raising two children with a voiceover stating “this is wholesome.” The ad concludes by saying; “No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will. Honey Maid — everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome.” So Nabisco has joined Coca Cola and Chevrolet in specifically marketing homosexuality.

Make no mistake, no matter what the LGBT groups, leftist liberals, and liberal theologies postulate, the Bible calls homosexuality a sin. And, God’s word is Truth and as such not open to revision or private interpretation. Sin is Sin no matter what the sin is, and there are no degrees of sin, in God’s eyes all are inseparable and all require repentance. Only the righteousness provided by Christ at the Cross can pay the debt of sin we owe. The good news is that while God hates sin, He loves the sinner and has provided the righteousness of Jesus Christ, through His shed blood, to redeem any who will accept Jesus as Savior and Lord of their lives, repenting of their sin.

Please be watching for our update on Friday as we take a look at the world of Finance.

Remember what our Lord Jesus said to His disciples about the events we are seeing happen around us today… Luke 21:28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
