(Isa 58:1-2) Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
There is nothing more important at this time, a time of great trouble, a troublesome time, that we love godly rebuke. It is not time to be a scorner, as it says in Proverbs: (Pro 9:8) Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. The reason that there is so much rebuke in my writings, I am outlining here; I don’t rebuke because I am self-righteous, rather I rebuke because I love. I know that the Lord has given me insight, he has shown me mercy and I want that mercy to extend to others.
I am amazed at the fools who go about to teach others to repent, but fail to repent themselves. What is needed today is not just a personal repentance of one’s personal sins, but a corporate repentance of the people of God. Let me bring the following scripture to your attention:
(Lev 26:40-42) If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity: Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
Some time ago I was having Bible study in my home and I invited some folks on Skype to join us. I remember as I was complaining about the wicked judgments and iniquity of the people of God, a woman spoke up and said “Robert, these people are never going to repent!”, it’s almost like she was saying, “get over it Robert, deal with it!” – Yeah, so far she is right, they aren’t repenting.
Here is a short video clip I saw of a foolish man holding up his KJV Bible at Osteen’s harlot gathering. This is the kind of thing, this work of iniquity, that I am talking about; God didn’t send this ridiculous man to make himself a public embarrassment! Watch this short clip and let me explain the problem.
As I have said in the past, the Lord is calling his people to leave Babylon. Babylon is a spiritual harlot, you could read my article “Jerusalem is Babylon”, you also could read another article “Raise the standard and Sown not among thorns“. What I have continually attempted to communicate is those who name the name of God are walking in iniquity. If the true Saints of the most high will depart and separate themselves and hear rebuke, corporately and privately repent, turn away from iniquity, then the Lord will receive them and he will be their God and they will be his people and he will heal their spiritual land. And the whole world will see it, they will become a city set on a hill with a light that cannot be hid.
(2Co 6:14-18) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Here is another example of works of iniquity done in the name of Christ: Isn’t this obvious?
What I am doing here is not just showing you bad tactics in street witnessing, instead I am showing you a people who do not know their God, they are not that city set on a hill, they refuse to be ashamed, they refuse to come out and be separate, they want to be seen in the street, God has not sent them.
Please read Isaiah 57, 58 & 59 – that’s all I have to say right now. What does the Lord need to do to bring us to a mournful corporate place of repentance? I real busy right now, I hope I can get all the work completed, thanks for considering what I am saying! (Luk 23:31) For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
To be sure, these street preachers, if you can call them that, are an embarrassment. I was very embarrassed watching just a portion of these videos. Not embarrassed for myself but for the way they are presenting Christianity and the Lord Jesus to the world. Yet, in reality, the Joel Osteen church is just as bad, or worse, in it’s own way. .
What we are seeing in these displays is flat out apostasy being openly,manifested. We were warned in the Holy Scriptures there would be a great falling away from the faith in the last days. Well, here it is, on steroids. There has been a building up of this apostasy for a long time; decades, even centuries, but until recently, there has never been the outright mass exodus from the Truth of the Bible and into deception and darkness we have been witnessing since the turn of the century.
Again, we have been warned! We are grieved to great sorrow in our spirits by this spiritual adultery, but we must face the facts; it’s not going to change. The majority have departed from the faith in Jesus Christ, from loving God, and turned to idolatry. They will turn on us as well, as you well know.
Nevertheless, the Lord is going to have His remnant. If there is to be a corporate repentance, I feel it will come about vis a vis a great shaking and judgment coming to America.And even then, I don’t think there will be an overwhelming outpouring of corporate repentance, but rather, the faithful remnant being pulled together more closely and knitted into the Bride. God’s will be done.
What can we do about the unrepentant, besides speaking the truth in love?
“Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.”Ezekiel 3:19
They will either listen and repent or they won’t. It’s the Lord’s job to deal with them from there on out. But if they won’t listen to the Lord, they are not likely to listen to us. As for me, I have not been called upon to go out into the streets, but generally simply on a one on one basis. Even so, that has usually not been welcomed by the recipients. They may want to be your best friend, until they are called to repentance and then they would take your head off, like John the Baptist’s was, if they were allowed. Not surprising is it?
