For the past five or six years I have been trying to get the word out about the overarching intrusion of evil into mainstream Christianity. The result of this effort, for me and my family, has been to withdraw from institutional Christianity and to worship and be instructed at home. I would like to say, that our work has been a success, and that God has rewarded us with visible results: manifestations of joy (better known to the flesh as happiness), strength and stature, wisdom to make right choices, and an infectious posture so as to create a like desire in others. I must say, that has not been the case. All the things listed above, and many more, have been the desire of our hearts, to be able to display to the world the goodness of God, and not necessarily God’s own desire for us. Our walk has been very lonely, our message depressing, our stature, one of weakness, and our joy, well, I can say with surety that it has not been the “happiness” the world enjoys, but has matured into a deep-seated rest in the faithfulness of the Almighty, and not the giddiness or tingling of the flesh.
We have remained faithful in our separation, and although I do desire fellowship, the mere thought of returning the saccharin of organized religion leaves me nauseous. We have been blessed with the knowledge that there are many others whom God has delivered also, and have had the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of them living in the Indianapolis area, but a lasting bond has not developed. God’s work in us is not complete. The purging and refining process goes on.
The simplest things in the spirit can bring the greatest relief, refreshing, and revitalizing to the inner man: the revelation of some verse of Scripture, a word spoken in due season, experiencing the fulfillment of prophecy, receiving word of some saints victory, or the knowledge that the true Church is again growing, breaking through the fertile soil of testing and trials, reaching for the Light, and beginning to bear a long awaited bounty for the Kingdom. Getting word from some distant place that the Church is growing and strong is great encouragement for me, like a Spring rain bringing life giving nourishment, causing the wilting and weak limbs to stand against an increasingly hot and blowing Satanic force.
The following videos are just such a “Spring rain.” They will give you hope and determination to continue to stand in the storm. God is at work through His saints, rebuilding the walls, clearing the debris, closing the breach, fortifying the doors, ridding the city of sin, and calling His children out of the world.
