“Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” – Isa. 59:14
What do you do when all the normal avenues of truth fail you? You can’t trust the government because their truth is always filtered through the prism of leftism-globalism-self interest. You can’t trust 95% of the media who is sold out to leftist policy and propaganda. That just leaves the Church, which is supposed to be a beacon of truth, but all too often it is not! That leaves just one source – God and His word. They will never fail us. God shared with Malachi what He thought was a model shepherd –
“There is a place God has ordained to give out truth – His Church! But that requires pastors that are “messengers of the Lord” as God told Malachi. God’s model pastor was Levi and God said of him,
“The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity.” – Mal. 2:6
God wants His Pastors to point out injustice and to speak the truth, regardless of the consequences! Imagine what would happen if every pastor in America started telling the wickedness of abortion from the pulpit. If they started sharing –
“Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides his sin by which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD.” 2 Kings 21:16
“And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood.” – Ps. 106:38
‘And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’ – Jer. 32:35
Our nation has sacrificed over 60 million babies to satisfy our unlawful pleasures of fornication, and do you not think their blood is crying out to God? You cannot use science as an excuse saying they are only tissue and not a living person because science has proven that life begins at conception! The person who commits abortion and those who condone it are guilty of murder and they are shedding innocent blood!
And the truth that pastors are responsible for is not just social, but it is also governmental! When executive orders flowing out of the White House or the run-away spending that 18 Republican Senators voted for in the Omnibus spending bill they must speak! When the campaign is on, politicians are quick to mouth the words they think the people want to hear but when they are faced with the hard choice to stand, they cave in. Pastors must speak out when Biden gives over-riding authority to a UN body called the WHO to control our medical practices without our say. Especially when that body is under the control of the Chinese government, whose national image is the dragon! Already China is in control of our financial institutions and they have rolled out the Chinese Dragon in Rockefeller Plaza in New York to prove it!
And they must certainly speak out when our government aids radical leftist in Israel to overthrow the Netanyahu government and refuses to help them when Iran is getting nuclear weapons and threatening to wipe Israel off the map! The Muslim Brotherhood moved in during the Obama White House and Joe Biden has continued Obama’s policies!
And the pastors, as ministers of God must speak out against the religious move to form a new worldwide religion that accepts all religions, whether they accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God or not. The following video by Amir Tsarfati highlights this movement.
Notice they are not requiring any recognition of Jesus for this ecumenical union! The Catholics have taken the word to mean universal, so any religion is OK with God and any god is also OK with Him! If you are in a church that is ok with these teachings, GET OUT WHILE THE GETTING OUT IS PERMITTED!
The heavenly signs are all shouting – the time of judgement is near – get your house in order now! Do I expect the pastors to suddenly take up their calling in God? No I do not but there will be a remnant who will and they will be forming the emerging new Church, one that obeys God above all else. I pray you will be in it.
