What Will You Do With Jesus?

The days are coming when we will witness the biggest polarization ever within the Christian community worldwide. Most of it will merge gladly, as if it were the only sensible thing to do, into a mystic, cosmetic and safe Christianity. It will blend comfortably with many other ‘spiritual’ paths too. For this big, mainstream group, deception will be the evangelism of the day, and any ‘miracle’ regardless of its source and character will be received as if it were the very act of God.

Those who love Jesus Christ passionately and without compromise will be a part of another group. They will not, under any circumstances, want to put up with the diluted, mediocre, fashionable and syncretistic Christianity. Jesus Christ alone will be their only Lord, their only King, and their only standard in all matters of faith and practice. They will be a movement of the outcast, the remnant, the true Bride of Christ. Their homes, sheds, barns, fields and farms will be their places of worship. Trusting in Jesus alone, even at the cost of their own lives, will be more precious to them than falling for the soothing, misleading and politically correct religious noises of the day.

The rumblings of the shifting tectonic plates are already penetrating the religious structures of today. The final alignments will not follow the recognized denominational borders. Nor will the beliefs of some exclusive religious group, known for its strange prophetic claims and practices define the remnant. Everything will have to do with the question about whom you are going to worship? Will you – whatever the circumstances – offer you undivided trust in the One who lived, died and was raised from the dead for your redemption? Or will you pledge your allegiance to a fake ‘Jesus’ who, like the Caesars and Imperators of old, will seek your worship and devotion?
