Sins of the Fathers – The Weekend Shock Letter for June 27th, 2020

We did this to ourselves. What we are experiencing now, and what we will experience in the future is a self-inflicted wound. A deadly, self-inflicted wound. Like the one described in Revelation 13.

Should the Lord delay His Return and another civilization rise and replace our own, future historians will have a host of reasons to choose from. But, just like the fall of every other empire, the ultimate cause will be our own. We were corrupt, and that corruption killed us.

Worse, we sinned against God, and now… God is judging us.

Fear Money Power

How We Got Here, Part 2: The Fear, The Money and The Power

Images coming out of Wuhan in February and March struck fear in the hearts of almost everyone. Bodies lying in the street, packed hospitals and terrified healthcare workers created anxiety and dismay around the world. And then, the virus broke out of China, and the world clamored for someone to ‘do something’.

While governments conferred with ‘experts’, central banks reacted with glee. They finally had something to blame for their failures. But then, there are those ‘experts’.

We handed them power. Lots of it. And, they destroyed us.

And, they will keep destroying us, until we take their power away.

We Forgot that God is JUST

One of the most pernicious movements to sweep the church is this idea that God is a kindly old man who wouldn’t hurt a fly and is willing and ready to overlook any and all sin. Along with it came an easy-believism and permission to ‘follow your heart’.

Truth was optional, and the Old Testament didn’t reflect God, anymore.

What we forgot in the process was that God doesn’t change. Ever. We forgot that the sins that made Him angry four thousand years ago, make Him angry today.

We forgot that God is JUST.

In the Footsteps of Jeremiah

Poor Jeremiah was a righteous man who did his very best to warn the people of God, to repent and escape the wrath that God was going to pour out upon Judah. Some listened and saved themselves, but most did not. And, Jeremiah had to watch the rebels among God’s people destroy themselves and everyone around them.

For those who are giving warning to the Body of Christ, to repent and escape the wrath of God, you are walking in the footsteps of Jeremiah. Some of our brothers and sisters will repent and escape. Most will not.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Our Sin Runs Through It

As I look back on this week, I see a theme that runs through it – our sinfulness. We have made compromises on the truth. We have compromised our morality. And, we have chosen pastors who do the same.

And, when that happens, God sends strong delusions among us:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

The word for ‘damned’ is the Greek word, krithosin – or, should be judged. And, THAT is what is happening right now. We are being judged by God.
