But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV)
Today, I’d like to continue to discuss on the leadership from several months ago. If you’d like to read any previous messages on leadership, please feel free to visit MGJC Web Ministry and click on MGJC Weekly Scripture Thought link. I want to stretch this subject to you because it is very important for the church to step up and proclaim the truth of God. As we see in our nation, we begin to see the rebirth of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19). Recently, the District of Columbia decided to live in homosexual lifestyle. Now, many America citizens have the legal right to have gay/lesbian marriage in the churches.
Our president is not doing anything to turn this nation to God, except he is trying to please everybody in the world. Matthew 6:24 said that we cannot serve both God and mommon (world wealth). We must choose whom we want to serve (Joshua 24:15)—God or the world. We cannot be in two places to live godly life. Many Christian churches have neglected the true testimony of the Words of God. We see that some churches recognize Roman Catholic Church as the one of Christian church denominations. In fact, many churches celebrate Christmas and Easter Sunday as the major Christian holidays, even though these holidays arrive from Paganism through Catholicism.
We use many Bible versions to understand God’s Words, which it brings us more confusion. If we’d careful exam today’s Bible versions, we’ll find many twisted words/phrases from the original version, KJV Bible in 1611.
It is the time for us to stand up and represent for citizens of this nation as Christian nation. We need to stand up with Israel to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to lost souls and not tear down. Even though President Obama and his administrations are trying to make us no good with Israel, we need to defend against this attack with prayers.
We need to pray for this nation to return to God. Now, it is the time for churches of Jesus Christ takes action. Are you ready?
