Will You Pass or fail?
By: Rob Pue
As I was currently working on an article concerning how the APOSTATE CHURCH has ended up in the great deception in which it finds itself, my attention was drawn to this article by Rob Pue. I would like share some of what he wrote because what he says weighs heavily upon my spirit also. I pray you take to heart what he says, although like me, I am amsure you have heard words like these, from other quarters, but they do bear repeating. Here is some of what Rob has to say…
“I do believe we are in for some terrible times in the days and weeks just ahead of us now. It may be that our cities and small towns will burn — destroyed by the wicked. Surely many will be injured or killed. Many more homes and businesses will be left in ruins. I don’t want to be a pessimist, but I do believe that what we have allowed to happen here in our country under our watch, cannot be undone now. We’ve passed the point of no return. Yes, sadly, I believe war is inevitable. And unlike our parents and grandparents, I don’t think we’re up to the task.
For decades, “good church-going Christians” were content to simply attend church regularly and do no more. They viewed church attendance and tithe-giving as “their reasonable service” even as Bible-reading was removed from our public schools; prayer was banned from our public schools; the Ten Commandments of God were replaced by false “hyper-grace” (and the prosperity), gospel message(s) in our churches. “Political correctness” replaced bold, courageous leadership, leaving the people as sheep without a shepherd, to fend for themselves, and so they adopted the ideology of pop culture and chose to obey tyrants rather than God; (opening the door to) the murder of our own innocent unborn babies, sanctioned from the highest court in the land. Also, homosexuality was normalized, then pridefully celebrated. Now it’s actually TAUGHT to our children in the public schools as something perfectly natural and normal!
This, of course, has led to Christians being forced, under “rule of law” to accept, affirm and celebrate sodomy too. Those who refused and chose, instead, to honor God and HIS laws have been prosecuted and persecuted, some losing everything. And this, of course, led to the “transgender” phenomenon, which is now leading to the normalization and celebration of pedophilia…. yes, the raping of our children.
And all the while, the vast majority of our churches here in America did nothing — absolutely nothing — to stop any of it. When individuals and ministries HAVE stood up to fight for God’s Word and Truth, they’ve been quickly shouted down by the “pastors” in most of our American pulpits — if not publicly, then certainly privately. Trust me, I know of what I speak. They’ve been persecuted by the “PASTORS” themselves — called “unloving,” “unChristlike,” and worse. These cowardly hirelings have instructed their flocks to “stay away” from such “radicals” who actually DO as God’s Word says. They pretend to honor God with their lips, spewing sweet-sounding platitudes that tickle itching ears, but their hearts have been FAR from God for several generations now.
And so today, the churches have been deemed “irrelevant” and “non-essential,” and indeed, I dare say, most of them are. Oh, many still do preach from the Bible. But they preach AROUND the “hard” things. They would never DARE to speak a single word or offer a single BIT of sound teaching about any of the grievous sins that have brought us to this place of judgment we find ourselves in today — for fear of offending one carnal, sinful soul.
So if you wonder “what in the world is happening?” as you go out of your house and see walking “dead” men and women with hopeless, fearful, vacant eyes peeking out from behind their masks — or others fearfully hiding in their homes, peeking out from behind closed curtains — or others rioting in the streets, tearing down everything good and Godly this country once stood for while those who are supposed to uphold law and order have been ORDERED to “stand down and let it all burn,” please understand that the answer is clear. We had our chance decades ago to uphold righteousness. But we preferred our own comfort over confronting and exposing the evil when it first NEEDED to be confronted, exposed and put down. We blew it. We failed!
(Apostate Chritians are dwarfed by the millions of reprobates and wolves in the pulpits that have arisen in this world, who will not preach that) God is not only a God of beauty, kindness and love, (but also a God of righteousness, truth and holiness … therefore), the writing is on the wall. Further unimaginable Judgment is coming to America and the world. Soon. (parenthesis contain added coments by Karen Connell).
It is imperative that we As Remnant Believers, prepare physically for the worst. Surely there’s coming a day very soon when the persecution will greatly intensify against Christians — REAL Christians, I mean. Many of us will not be able to work. Instant communication, as we know it today, through the internet will not only be more strictly censored, but Christians will be targeted and persecuted for speaking truth, much worse than we already are. Christianity will be a “hate crime” and a “thought crime.” Will we be allowed to buy or sell without a vaccine or a digital “mark” of some kind? Very likely not. Yes, we must assemble ourselves together with others of likemind and like faith and prepare ourselves physically and be prepared to protect and defend the innocent around us and those we love.
But at the same time, we have the daunting task of preparing our hearts and minds spiritually. We must determine NOW how we’re going to respond when that persecution comes to each of us personally. Will we simply comply with evil in order to survive? Or will we stand strong for our Savior, and give our ALL for our Lord as He has given for us?
After Jesus was arrested in the garden, His best friends, His disciples followed behind — at a distance — too fearful of being associated with Him, lest they, too, suffer at the hands of wicked men. Many today are still following Jesus at a distance. Too afraid of being “called names” or afraid of the opinions of carnal men. How will they respond when the devil comes to THEIR door? I think I hear a “cock crowing” somewhere…
Friends, what I’m saying is that if we expect to hear those words “Well done, thy good and faithful servant,” then we must prepare our hearts and minds now for persecution we cannot even imagine — because it WILL be worse than we think. We must determine to lay down our lives for the Lord. I have no problem with that, because I know what awaits me. I’ll gladly stand for Jesus — I’ve already survived many trials and tests, and I’m more than ready to go be with Him.
But what if it’s not MY life I’m asked to lay down, but the lives of those I love — because of MY faithfulness to Christ? If my spouse or children or grandchildren were about to be tortured, raped or killed? Could I endure that? You see, these are the things we must prepare for — and make our minds up about RIGHT NOW, so we don’t falter or fail when our time of testing comes. Because know this: we will ALL be tested and it’s going to be difficult and painful and heart-wrenching. But only for a short time. Then, all who (endure to the end) will be saved and will inherit the new heavens and new earth where Jesus will set all things right again and this present evil will be destroyed. Stay faithful, and draw close to Jesus now… because that Great Day is quickly approaching.
