America Has Not Fulfilled Her CallingWell, hello again,
July slipped by and I forgot to write my monthly letter. It seems time is like the remnant on a bolt of fabric - as it unwinds it goes faster and faster because there is not much left on the bolt.
I would like to write to you all about the signs of the times and the actual happenings of the times we are living in. What a time of yea and a time of boo-hoo.
When Christ says He has already shaken the earth and now He is shaking the heavens - well the evidence is all around us. The countries' social structures are falling apart as we see the wave of a new order happening right before our eyes.
America, or perhaps I should say, the world, has not yet arrived at what God has in store for us. However, we will have to part with the shadow to get the real. All we have seen so far is man's idea of government, man ruling over man, man inventing things to make life more bearable, man glorifying himself. In other words, God has been put on the back burner. However, the reason all government is failing and falling, the stock market is crumbling, families are falling apart, brother is against brother, nation against nation etc., etc., is precisely because God is wiping out an old system that has served its purpose and bringing in a new.
Like the wave that wiped out the Indians as a new order came in - all Indians who rode the wave and accepted the new became part of the new. As it was 2000 years ago, Christianity was a new wave. All who rode the wave became a new man under a new system.
Now what we know as the Christian age, the Gentile age, the church age, great as it was, is coming to a close and old things are passing away and God has a new plan. It is scary, it is awesome, it is exhilarating.
Jesus, Himself set the format. "If you love your life and try to save it you will lose it. If you lose everything - even your life - and yield to His plan, you will save it and be part of the new age which will take over whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not. The new age is made up of a more humble people ruled over by the God who created them.
My dear friends, it is time we take our heads out of the sand and face reality. Democracy has proven as crooked as "the evil empire" (communism). All the world lieth in the hands of the wicked one. Only the truth will set us free - truth about ourselves, truth about our country, truth about to whom we have entrusted our souls.
As God shakes all so only His kingdom remains, let us try to keep peace with all men. Let us not have aught against one another - in other words, keep your heart clean of all bitterness and idolatry, preferring others more than yourself. God visits the earth to judge and change the age just once every 2000 years. Let us be willing to change and arise from our sleep. The gates of hell will not prevail against those willing to leave all to gain all.
'Til we meet again, I pray you gird your loins with truth and keep the light of Christ ever burning.
