Many of us have given up trying to find a church which is grounded in the Word of God, and preaches on Bible prophecy. At least in this part of the country (East Coast) it is extremely hard to find this kind of church.
Many evangelicals are falling for the “Return to Rome” apostasy. Ecumenical Christians (that’s an oxymoron) who are not grounded in the Word of God, will fall for anything! Even Baptist churches are following the bread crumbs back to the Vatican. It’s truly alarming!
My husband and I have found so many wonderful, Bible believing, Israel loving Christians on Facebook. We call them our Facebook church! And when we want sound, Biblical preaching, we go to Pastor JD Farag, and even to old videos of Adrian Rogers, who is so blessed to be in the presence of Jesus.
Of course, the evil one is always on standby to attempt to corrupt people on Facebook. Have you noticed that you can read the most uplifting teaching from the Word, at the bottom of the page, there invariably are pictures of scantily clad women and I’m sure for our brothers in Christ, this is a strong temptation. My husband is practicing averting his eyes. They say if you do something for a month, it becomes a habit! This is a great habit 🙂
Home groups in these last days
Fellowship in person is very important. I am praying for a group of true believers to gather in our home. There is something very powerful and edifying about being among others who love our Lord Jesus as we do.
I believe that with persecution coming (did you think it will be confined to the Middle East?) that gathering together in one’s home will probably be the only way that we can worship together. And there is always a chance that the internet will be either taken down or controlled. I always encourage Christian Facebook friends to have a list of phone numbers of the people to whom they have grown closest.
If you have a good church – you are so blessed!
Indeed you are blessed! But make sure that your church has home groups too. Brethren, things are coming, just as Jesus said, and we must be prepared. We are hated by the world because they hated Him first.
The world is our mission field
Another wonderful thing about the internet is that we are not constrained in any way (so far) to share the wonderful Gospel of Christ. Scripture, articles and teachings, and other evangelical tools are available to us. We never know how many people we are reaching for Christ!
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
We are able via the internet to help those who have made a decision for Christ. Also, there are untold number of groups – just waiting to help the babe in Christ to grow in Him.
It’s a different world
I do believe that because Jesus is all knowing, He made the internet possible, so that all of creation could hear and read His words of life! What an amazing God we serve!
Unbelievers on our FB lists are watching
We never know how many who do not believe, will read Scripture from our pages and will be drawn by our Lord! It’s truly amazing how many people can be reached!
“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
