Yesterday, I watched a little preaching on tv before going to church. The speaker told of how he, a preacher in 2017, has a preacher friend who has a church with their own beer brand. Another preacher, he said, brought a message in front of his congregation while relaxing in a recliner with a beer in hand. Ag! I’d say what is this world coming to, but I know. I’ve read the end of the Book. Between the Revelation chapter 3 thoughts, the Church of Laodicea, 1 Timothy 4: 1: “The Spirit clearly says that in later times, some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons….”, I know what’s coming.
I have openly confessed to living a rather sheltered life. I’m glad for this. I know of some people who have abandoned the faith, refuse to marry, and don’t recognize these things as Satanic manipulation. I pray.
I thank God: I’ve recently been praying in the Spirit, because there’s so much to pray for and out of obedience, I don’t want to merely put my opinionated take on my prayer requests to God.
We went to church and the kids sang. This was great. The choir director had a child, under the age of 10, pray aloud before the whole church. As I write this, my eyes are filling with tears of emotion…. The child prayed: “Dear God, please protect us all from drugs, alcohol, and guns. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.”
That’s where our world, in America, is now, folks……..ag!!! That wasn’t the world I grew up in………. I know other countries have it worse……but, this child innocently prayed this aloud……….heart-felt…..
End times, folks……………
