Blogging toward Jerusalem 

Here we are, blogging toward Jerusalem. The King is about to return. The church is in total confusion. Oh, there's going to be a great revival, we're told. Signs! Wonder! Miracles! The Greater Works! The Holy Spirit is coming in Power to give dreams and visions, and all that stuff. But the fact of the matter is, the church for the most part is in dreadful disarray. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

Don't talk about being "Pentecostal" if you can't get together with 120 other believers and all be in one accord. The Lord prayed the believers would be "One." Paul said we are all baptized into ONE Body by the same spirit. I'm not talking about getting along with other believers in YOUR denomination, or who agree with you about doctrine and who use the same Bible version you do. I'm talking about "no divisions" -- not even between you and those who totally disagree with everything you think you believe.

What would the King say if He were here "in the flesh?" Bickering children, arguing about who will sit on the right hand and who will sit on the left. Making a great stand for doctrinal positions -- "understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm."

You don't like my tone? Tough. I'm a brother in Christ. Washed in the Blood. Saved. Sanctified--as good as in Heaven with the door shut.

"That sounds like 'once saved always saved.' We don't believe that in MY church."

"Your Church? When did you start a church? How many days did you spend in the bowels of hell to earn the right to establish a church? There's only one church, brother, and only one way in.

Yes, my heart is inditing a good matter. I speak of things touching the King. He's coming. And like the bumper sticker says -- "Boy, is He mad!" Judgment begins in the House of God. Get ready to rumble.
