The Fear of Man!

In today’s world life is very uncertain! World events are becoming scarier by the hour. Sin is abounding people are calling good evil and evil good. In America, there is so much corruption but yet nothing is being done about it.

In the Christian world, we have Prophets saying judgement is coming to America. There are many saying how that judgement is coming. The doom and gloom prophets whether they are from G-d or not I cannot tell because all are saying something bad is going to happen to America.

I do know that America is in trouble and anyone who has a relationship with the one and only true G-d senses that in their Spirit. There have been many assumptions as to what will happen. With all the prophetic words out there who can really know for sure.

There is one consensus judgement is coming! Many have said we have already received some judgement based on Romans 1.

Is there hope for a stay of execution of the judgement that is coming? Across the board, I am not so sure! G-d is seeking repentance and justice. 50+ million aborted babies are crying out for justice.

Galatians 6:7 (NKJV) 7 do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

He is a sovereign G-d. We may be able to avert the fullness of HIS judgement through repentance and receive HIS mercies.

We are a country “For the People by the People” Where are the people of G-d? Better yet, where were the people of G-d when our government removed prayer out of schools, allowed abortions to be the norm and now has allowed Homosexuals to be married?

Did we love our freedom more than we loved our G-d? Did we fear man more than we feared G-d? When the prophets came to turn us back did we listen? Now that the Prophets are crying out louder are the people of G-d repenting and standing up for righteousness? (there is a remnant)

As a whole, we are not! We are casting blame on the people we elected and the devil. Yet does the body of Messiah stand up and repent before our nation? We must take responsibility for our actions. We have a body need to repent for allowing evil to abound in our Nation. We had the power of our G-d to prevent this, but our fear of man deceived us.

Matthew 10:28 (NASB) 28 “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 

We started as a holy nation a Christian nation. G-d blessed us and honored His covenant with the United States. We soon walked away and lost our fear of the LORD and became greedy fearing the repercussions from man. Not fearing the repercussions from G-d. Is there really any freedom outside of G-ds kingdom?

Hebrews 12:4-7 (NASB) 4 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; 5 and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD, NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM; 6 FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES, AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES." 7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?

Christians in America have not resisted sin to the extent that the scripture ascribes to. Early in our history we may have strived against sin. Now it’s just every man for himself attitude within the body of Messiah. We have allowed the enemy to twist scriptures to satisfy our flesh. We have been self-absorbed and arrogant in our biblical teaching.  Each denomination thinking they have it all figure out. By doing this, we have become Pharisees of Pharisees adding to and taking away from G-d’s word. During our own bickering of scripture, we have allowed this nation to walk away from G-d.

Instead of preaching righteousness we are preaching feel good tickling hears messages that have no eternal truth. When a Christian thinks it’s ok to vote for a politician who will vote for abortion and homosexuality!

That Christian has voted against G-d not for G-d and His righteousness! These are some of the things the whole body of Messiah needs to repent of!

We have come against the living G-d and have turned away from the Living G-d.

Repent! Repent! Repent!

1 John 1:5-10 (NKJV) 5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

Even if you think you are righteous please humble yourself and bow your knee for we all need to repent.

What I don’t see is congregations having massive alter calls for Repentance. Do we not know the judgement comes first to the House of G-d?

1 Peter 4:17-18 (KJV) 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begins at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

As believers in America, should we not be devastated by what we have done to this Nation and to those who are perishing?

Isaiah 51:7 (NASB) 7 "Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, A people in whose heart is My law; Do not fear the reproach of man, Nor be dismayed at their reviling’s.

During the next year and always we must trust G-d. We must not fear man.

I do believe that there is hope for believers in America. I believe there is still hope for our Nation. I do believe there could be a revival in this nation that will birth a fire that will spread to the nations. I hope for this, I pray for this.

It must start with us! We must humble ourselves before GOD and be willing to tear down those Idles of fear, money, self-righteousness, spiritual arrogance, un-Forgiveness, and the god of control etc. We must remember this is G-ds house and Jesus is the Head of this HOUSE. Trust Him and give him back control.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NASB) 14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

We are His people and if we repent HE will forgive us and heal our Land. I believe he will heal our hearts as well.

Yom Kippur or The Day of Atonement is coming in less than 10 days.

Yom Kippur 2015 begins Tuesday, September 22 at sunset (in 6 days) ends Wednesday, September 23 at nightfall.

I pray on that day church alters will be full of humble hearts repenting as a whole body of Messiah turning back to G-d! Then the sinners will come and be saved.
