"A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO STAND FIRM"

BY:  GARY R. KANE


I believe this message will be a great encouragement to you as you take the time to read it and allow the Holy Spirit to minister this word to your heart. We are in a time like never before, and want to encourage each of you who love the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart to stay in the word of God and prayer and worship. It is a time when God is so mocked and scoffed in so many ways from the White House to even the Church house in some places, where the people leave empty, dead, dry, because they were not fed the whole truth of the word of God, only parts, portions, to fit the "scheme" of things in their particular gathering. To keep nickels nose's and numbers coming in.

This is not the bride Christ is coming after, not at all. He is coming for a pure bride without spot or wrinkle, not one who is filled with all the entertainment they can work up to please the flesh and keep the crowds coming.

True Holy Ghost teaching and the power of God, and the moving of His Spirit will keep those coming that have a heart for God, and hunger for more of him. They do not need entertainment and sporting events in the Church. They want and need Jesus and him alone. They do not fall for the Easter egg hunts, and all the other ridiculous "unscriptural" events to bring in the youngsters.

They, this 'remnant of the Lord Jesus', they know Easter is a celebration of the Resurrected Christ !  In fact "Everyday is a day of celebration" for those who love the Lord with all their hearts and will not allow compromise.  And to celebrate this blessed event any other way, or to add to it the "mythological deception of men through fleshly and worldly traditions" that have nothing whatever to do with the things of God, is absolutely a slap in the face of what Christ has done for us !

I pray , oh how I pray, that those of you on this mailing list, all over the world, will call out on the Lord for a true move of God to sweep through your own heart and the hearts and lives of those in your gatherings, and there will be God at the center of it all, not a man! Not a personality trying to be 'the whole loaf'. No, but Christ as the head, Christ as the fullness of it all, Christ getting all the glory and praise.

It is time, past time, to stop looking to men, and look to Jesus Christ as the only source. The only healer, and provider and savoir. It is time for the remnant of God to stand up and say ENOUGH ! I cannot continue in pretense, I cannot go on week after week in death and dryness. I cannot go another minute without the breath of God in my spiritual lungs raising me up to walk as Christ walked. I'm tired of my flesh having it's way. I must have a fresh fire, a fresh infilling and baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire !

Lukewarm Church. It is past time to wake up from the dead and let Christ shine on us. Time to do the works he did, and be a light in this dark world so filled with hate and perversion, and greed and lust and pride

It is far past time to live, and to show, the love of God to all men not just a select few. To repent of all bitterness, and hatred, and unforgiveness, and walk in the mercy and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ !

There are a world of people waiting on such a one to come to them and show them Jesus ! Will you be that one ? In your place of work. In your relationships with those around you. In your own family. Even in your gatherings where there are so many in the building who do not really even know the Lord and sit week after week deceived, having as Paul called it. "Another Jesus.."

2 Corinthians 11:1- 4

1 I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness. Yes, please put up with me! 2 I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. 3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpentís cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. (fall for it in other words, emphasis mine)

Beloved, this "other Jesus,"  (which is preached as a 'replacement for the one True Jesus)  is being preached every week, every day, in all kinds of Churches. The jesus that allows folks to walk in the flesh and walk with him at the same time. The jesus that allows folks to make a name for themselves no matter who it hurts on the job, The jesus that allows Mythology in the Church to draw crowds, and every other gimmick NOT found in your Bible by the way, to draw crowds and hold them there, instead of the power of the 'risen Christ' drawing all men through the preaching of the cross, and the gospel of truth.  The latter, the one true Christ, the one and 'only' Jesus Christ, will hold and keep men. Hold them for all eternity, for those who's hearts are his, and hunger diligently for more and more of Jesus ! This "other jesus" continues to bring death and destruction, while everyone thinks their alright with God !

Don't be in this great destruction, this falling away. Be of those who love the Lord with all your heart and turn to him now and just ask Him to cleanse you and bathe you in his love and mercy and grace, and remove all fear and approval of men, and fear of the devil, and fear of what could be, or might happen if you truly follow him with a whole heart. What will happen if you truly surrender everything to Christ, dying to all flesh, resisting the ways of the devil and sin ?   You will enter into the most glorious place of all !  Abiding in Christ.  Secure in his heart and hands. The devil can't touch you there !  Glory to God !
