Today, we stand on the threshold, with the Church age behind us and the last prophesied seven years for Israel before us – before the Messiah steps in to save the remnant of Israel and the Kingdom age begins: So you need to ask yourself: Where is my focus? Where is my heart? Where is my treasure? The best way to find out is by prayer and to ask your family and friends.
Please prayerfully contemplate on the following Scriptures:
The Apostasy: The past two years (2014-2015), I’ve seen many of our most eminent Church leaders violate these verses: 2 John 7–11: “For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, that you might not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.” (NASB)
The Church at-large: Matthew 6:19–21: “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (NASB)
Matthew 10:37–39: “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life shall lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake shall find it.” (NASB)
