Come Out of Her, My People! Part 43: “Jesus Doeth All Things Well!”

It’s really too bad that so many or perhaps most young folk in the Church are caught up in the current prosperity-driven gospels being pushed by the Enemy of Souls, “the god of this world”, the Devil, Satan. (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

It’s so sad that so many young people follow the exciting, charismatic preachers whose words are, “smoother than butter”. Psalm 55:21

THOMAS BROOKS ON JOKING PREACHERS

.

https://www.google.com/search?q=thomas+brooks+Christian+reformer&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjR1Iqok5nWAhVP9mMKHbsFALcQ_AUIDCgD&biw=1366&bih=638#imgrc=Ij58mhoDt3Dy1M:Yes, these laughing, joking preachers were prophesied by that Reformation author, Thomas Brooks…“They (apostate teachers) preach more to please the ear than to profit the heart…False teachers handle holy things rather with wit and trifling, rather than with fear and reverence. False teachers are soul-murderers. They are like evil surgeons, that skin over the wound—but never heal it…False teachers are Hell’s greatest enrichers.”

.

Here above, Thomas Brooks nails down the current state of affairs in so many of today’s pulpits.

.

But unfortunately, the young just seem to gravitate to these “Hell’s enrichers”, because they talk the same “hip language” that the world likes to talk.

SOUR MILK

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:F%C3%AAte_de_l%27Humanit%C3%A9_2012_-_009.jpgOne of the great problems with following these “smoother than butter” preachers is that their audience listens to a lot of funny jokes, interesting stories, and tearful pleas!

.

And yet, these audiences receive little of the true, “milk of the Word” necessary to grow into a genuine relationship with Jesus.

.

They hear very little Bible and a whole lot of worldly chatter mixed with quasi-Christian sentiments.

“SINCERE MILK”

.

Now of course, it’s not that God wants to thrust these young people immediatehttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jesus_Christ_in_prayer.jpgly into the Christian battle.

.

Rather, when a new Christian begins the upward heavenly sojourn, God, quite often allows a grace period for that neophyte Christian to enjoy and grow by the “sincere milk of the Word”, and the softer, more pleasant aspects of the Christian life.

DRINKING THE KOOL-AID

.

But the problem is, so many of today’s young Christians are getting fed little more than “sugar-water Kool-Aid” by these smooth preachers whom Satan loves to give very big microphones.

.

And so, there is very little if any Christian growth during these really popular extravaganzas.

ANEMIC LYRICS

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpg#/media/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpgAnd then comes the song service which plays a lot of upbeat dance-able music combined with very anemic lyrics, which often are little more than meaningless chants, “I love you Lord! I praise You! You are awesome, and I praise Your holy name!”

.

With such thin, anemic lyrics, the young people leave these big events on an emotional high, only to lose their excitement and enthusiasm after a few days!

.

And then, they become even more spiritually depleted than they were before they attended that vain convocation!

THE OLD HYMNShttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Isaac_Watts.jpg

.

Much to the contrary, the composers of hymns back in previous centuries often filled their lyrics with rich, poetic sentiments which taught the critical, basic truths of what a genuine relationship with Christ is all about.

FANNY CROSBY

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fanny_Crosby_cph.3b17084.jpg

Take for example, the lyrics of Fanny Crosby, the blind writer of Christian poetry-put-to-music…“All the way my Savior leads me, What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well; For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well!”

“WHATE’ER BEFALL ME, JESUS DOETH ALL THINGS WELL!”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Munch_Det_Syke_Barn_1896.jpg

.

This above verse is filled with various aspects of the Christian’s faithful following of Jesus!

.

But perhaps, one of the greatest lines in all of Christian hymnals was penned by Mrs. Crosby, when she wrote these following 11 words, “For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well!”

.

Simple words? Yes, very simple!

.

Profound words? Very!

IGNORANT OF THE WORD!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpgThe sad truth is, that so many young people are just not spiritually equipped to go through the suffering that will come upon most Christians at some point in their lives.

.

But as these above lyrics reveal, all that befalls the Christian, both good and bad, have been allowed by Jesus, as a means of strengthening the faith of the Christian: experiences when the Lord showers us with our happy moments, but also when He brings us safely through our various trials, some of which can be very fiery!

“IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS!”

.

Of course, Fanny’s lyrics were merely poetically paraphrasing such Bible verses as this…“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1st Thessalonians 5:18

.

Yes, to give thanks in all things, both happy and not-so-happy, becomes the essence of what it means to trust Jesus and know that He only allows those things which are for our eternal good!

.

But Fanny said it poetically like this…“For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well!”

.

MANY OTHER “MUSTY” OLD HYMNS!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpg#/media/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpg.

Oh, there are many other of these so-called, “musty old hymns”, which today’s fashionable churches have discarded, so that they could rather appeal to the unsanctified, worldly tastes of the young, by playing the new, fashionable, and sensual music so often heard today!

STRIKE OUT ON YOUR OWN!

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

But there are some young people who desire to find true wisdom!

.

And those with such heaven-sent discernment may wish to retrieve one of those old discarded hymnals from the church basement.

.

And then, they might begin to privately enrich themselves with the many wonderful and true sentiments of the Christian life, so often revealed in these forgotten songs of Christianity past.

“COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE!”

Revelation 18:4

.

And so, here we have just one more reason why God now considers today’s http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgchurch-world, “Babylon”!

.

And this is one more reason to join the end-time exodus away from these fallen churches and denominations!

.

But never fear! God has provided delicious heavenly manna and abundant and pure waters of grace, “…upon every high mountain and every high hill in the day that the towers (churches) fall!” Isaiah 30:25

MEANING OF THE SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS…

.

.

So the Summer Constellations are a picture of the more pleasant aspects of the Gospel. And just as summer-time is the more pleasant season for much of the world, so too, the discipleship portion of the Gospel is the more pleasant aspect of the Christian life; Bible-study, fellowship, sitting at Jesus feet and learning of His ways. Spreading the Gospel. Most of us would like this to be the total sum and entirety of our Christian life. But just listen…

.

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7.

.

.

But as this verse points out, there is another side to Christianity: Christian warfare. And this Woman of Revelation 12 will also be present in the Winter Constellations. But by then, she will be ready to do what she must, during the winter battle scene: FLEE!

.

So let’s take a look at the Winter Constellation Group…The warfare we must fight. The good fight as God calls it. It is also the race we must run. The sin we must flee from. And these sterner aspects of the Gospel are what the Winter Constellations are all about.
