Wikileaks

The Christian faith is all about truth.

John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 16:13 – Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come

John 8:32 – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

So how is it then that Christians are still defending Donald Trump in spite of the fact that he now obviously the greatest liar that has ever filled the president’s office?

Lets accept that we were duped when he said he would cease wars around the world. He is actively supporting military action in several countries which is directly resulting in the death of civilians, he is supporting terrorists who are killing Christians, he has bombed Syria, he is demanding more spending on the military and has stirred up animosity with North Korea.

But of all things Donald Trump has done an about turn on, the renewed effort to terminate Wikileaks, is no doubt one of his greatest evils. Here is an organisation that has repeatedly exposed the evil intent of wicked people and governments around the world, an organisation that has a history of 100% honesty and accuracy in its reporting and which is apparently now a threat to the United States??? The United States used to stand for truth and justice. It was a country that other nations admired and respected. Now it is threatened by truth?

The same intelligence organisations that are so intent on destroying Wikileaks have been caught selling weapons to terrorists, supplying drugs into the USA, overthrown numerous countries, killed countless people, subverted justice and truth, corrupted the media and lied to Congress and the public at almost every opportunity. How do Christians simply accept their attempts to suppress the truth? Where is the Christian outcry and demand for justice in this instance?

Christianity is going to be judged in the future, this is very clear from the scriptures. What is not so clear is why we fall short and come into judgement. I have no doubt that choosing to no longer stand up for righteousness, for justice and for truth will contribute to the coming judgement and falling away.

Wikileaks is one of the very few organisations that does not supply false NWO misinformation to corrupt and mislead society and Christians should be praying and fighting to keep this information source available. Ordinary people who become aware of crime, deception, lies, abuse and injustice use this unique outlet to expose evil without being murdered, fired from their employment, ostracized or ridiculed. Christians should recognize this avenue of justice and get their support behind it.

John the Baptist criticized the evil leaders of the day and paid for it with his life. Jesus opposed the evil rulers in his day and paid with his life. History is full of Christians who have opposed evil authorities at great cost. Is there an American pastor or church leader that could stand up for truth this weekend? Perhaps donate the week’s taking to supporting truth? Is there any such church leader in the USA?

I doubt it. But individual Christians need to stand up for truth and defend it. At the very least we can pray for truth to prevail and overcome the evil of this age. After all, faith without works is dead. If we don’t, truth will be lost and next time it may be our truth that is lost.

By grace

Are you a Christian that knows this is the season of Grace?

The time for judgement will come, but right now we are in a season of grace through and by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

That means we do not judge anyone in the natural. Not gay people, not Muslims, not leaders of our country, not people of other political parties. We should judge no one. And they reason is… it is impossible to effectively intercede for, bless, be a witness and bring to Christ those that we judge. And when we judge we have become the accuser instead of the intercessor. We have allowed judgment to replace a little piece of grace within our soul. We have denied the Holy Spirit full authority and have rather given the accuser a foothold to subvert our thinking, our words, our actions.

And when the devil has a foothold, we suddenly find ourselves being a little more judgmental and critical in other areas; of those we work with or our family and perhaps even of our Lord and Savior. We move from a place of blessing and strength to a place of slavery and defeat.

There is no effective witness nor ministry where there is judgment of the unbeliever.

Mathew 7:1-2 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Condemners, accusers and judges are the fake Christians of this age; modern day Pharisees. When you see them and hear them talk, don’t walk away from them. RUN FROM THEM! They will pollute your soul and bring you into bondage, making you ineffective for the Kingdom of heaven.

The key to being effective for the Lord is serving, giving, fasting and intercession. And when we are faithful enough in these endeavors God will open a door to witness and bring the offenders to Christ. That is the only option, the only solution. That is grace manifest through us.

James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
What is your faith moving you to do at this time in your life? Are you stirred up to evangelize the lost, visit those in prison, fend for the widows and orphans, praying for the sick? Or are you an intercessor, waking early to labour for others in prayer? Or are you an undercover Christian, visible to no one?
Matthew 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
If your faith is not stirring you up to action for the Kingdom, it is dead and without value.
I am going to share a simple plan of action for you to be effective for the Kingdom without stepping out of your comfort zone.
1. Think of 1 person in your company that you do not like at all.
2. Start waking up 30 minutes early every weekday and pray for that person.
3. Start fasting 1 day a week for that person.
4. Ask God to lead you in prayer for that person. Prayer for forgiveness for the hardness in your heart towards that person.
5. Initially things may get worse in your relationship with that person, but persevere.
6. Prophecy God’s word and will in their life and pray for them and their family.
7. Don’t approach them or speak to them about your faith, God will present the opportunity when the hardness in your heart is overcome with love and you are in a place to be Christ to them.
8. When the Spirit of God again has authority in your life that person will present the opportunity for you to evangelize them.
9. Be hope, be love, be patience, be goodness, be mercy, be Christ.
10. In so doing you will bring someone to the Lord and experience personal revival.

A lost opportunity to share the Gospel

gay evangelism

Have you ever been so desperate to pull others out of the fire of hell (Jude 23) that you will compromise yourself to bring others to Christ. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:18-23 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

Here is a man who would do almost anything to bring others to Christ. yet in this day and age the church is almost just the opposite... conditioned to be selective in its morality and its focus. I'm referring to the homosexual community which is totally rejected by the Christian faith. Christians cannot bake cakes for gay marriages, cannot sign marriage certificates of gay couples, judge and condemn them continually; they are the scourge of the Christian faith it seems. Now before the zealous jump up and down in condemnation, I am not in favour of gay marriage or homosexuality. In my opinion it is a destructive lifestyle with little peace or joy and there are very real external reasons that lead people into this lifestyle. But I have to say the hypocrisy of the church on this matter stinks to high heaven.

If one should actually study the story of Sodom and Gomorrah one might be surprised to see the main sin before God in the matter was pride. Can you imagine judging a businessman or celebrity with the same zeal because of their pride and arrogance. "I cannot bake a cake for your wedding because I perceive your pride. My faith will not let me" And how many couples are denied a cake by Christian bakers because they are having sex outside of marriage? You hypocrites, bake the bloody cake. If you feel so strong about their lifestyle lay hands on the dough and pray the Holy Spirit will convict them at each mouthful. Minister love and peace at every opportunity. Be the light in this dark world. Have you not been told this is not the time for judgement?

You hypocrite pastors who refuse to marry gay people, yet marry all others who are living a life in adultery. Were you not warned to not be a respecter of persons? (James 2) If you truly serve the living God then make use of the opportunities the change in the law has presented you; for indeed God has appointed the leaders who make the laws of the land which you are compelled to adhere to (Romans 13). Rather offer 12 week marriage courses to these gays couples, minister to them, evangelize them and be Christ to them, because it is probably the only chance they are going to get to avoid hell. Alternatively throw stones from a distance and let God determine if you have made a good investment with what you have been given for the works of ministry.
