Spiritual Babylon – Today’s Church

Revelation 18
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil[a] spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. 3For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

A couple of very thought provoking websites

The Apostasywatch.com points out how many famous televangelists and powerful figures in the American Christian world have compromised with the world in a very serious fashion. The site is written by someone who DOES believe that the gospel should be confirmed by signs and wonders, which I also believe.

Apostasy in the Church

There is plenty of evidence that the spirit of harlotry has gained a strong foothold and in some cases virtually taken over many of the leading denominations in the western world today, including sadly, many pentecostal/charismatic churches. This is tragic because the pentecostal church was entrusted with tremendous understanding of the plan of God for the believer’s life.

What shall we make of Matthew 7:21-23

One of the most interesting and controversial passages anywhere in the
Bible comes straight out of the mouth of Jesus Christ, and is recorded
for us in Matthew 7:21-23:

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter
the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your
name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart
from Me, you who practice lawlessness!

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.
