THE GOLD OF GOD

Perplexity is the sum of these days of confusion! We are all in some proximity to a perplexity.

(1) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
(2) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
(3) Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
(4) Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
(5) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:1-5

We’re living in eschatological times of scriptural fulfillment. The aforementioned traits are nothing new to a humanity steeped in carnal sin. It is the escalation of these works or dynamics of the flesh which have become common in our societies around the globe. The selfishness of sin has increased and the insolence of narcissism underlines the motives of mankind. Pervasiveness for the love of pleasures of every carnal kind is prevalent along with the pretense of piety underscores a true lack of love for a Holy and Righteous God. What can we do to sustain ourselves through this tidal wave of sin? I contend that we contend for the faith with tenacity and to find ourselves more often in the presence of God humbling praying for direction. We must by all means strengthen ourselves in his presence through prevailing prayer so that our presence in this world radiates with the presence of God.

When there is great apostasy there will be a remnant of righteous believers. Yet even in apostasy there is the hope of revival of repentance. Our God is a God of infinite love, mercy, and grace. He desires mercy and not judgment and he desire grace and not justice; his desire is to pardon the repentant of his heritage.

(18) Who is a God like you, who pardons iniquity, and passes over the disobedience of the remnant of his heritage? He doesn’t retain his anger forever, because he delights in loving kindness.
(19) He will again have compassion on us. He will tread our iniquities under foot; and you will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
(20) You will give truth to Jacob, and mercy to Abraham, as you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old. Micah 7:18-20

These are the days of apostasy; yet God has a remnant within those apostates who will hear and heed the call to repentance. Yet there is also a righteous remnant of believers who are anointed to stir up world around them by preaching the message of repentance and the reviving of those who have fallen away. If we claim to have mercy; yet possess no compassion; how can we declare the Spirit of God abides in us? We cannot change what we are unwilling to confront. As noted in our heading we are all in proximity to the perplexity of the prophetic hour in which we live. There should be a clear line of demarcation between saint and sinner; yet much of the time there is hardly any clear distinction. When we can discern those around us who only have a form of godliness but refuse to accept the transforming power of God in their lives; we have a crisis of opposing views. If we can discern this unchallenged hypocrisy knowing full well the eternal destiny of these people; and do not rise in righteous indignation preaching repentance; I dare say we may stand before God with blood on our hands.

We are living in the days of prophesied perplexity! Where are those who weep bitterly for the spoiling of God’s people? Where are those who will not be comforted until they see revival? Where are the righteous who cry out day and night for the lost of this generation? Are we all become Laodicean in the spirit of error inundated with self-sufficiency, self-reliance, self-enriched with no regard for those who are desperately lost in sin? It is this mentality which has rendered the church extant with spiritual nakedness and nothingness concerning the work of God. Let this counsel stand; put away those garments of self-righteousness and purchase those true riches which are purified by fire! Let your heart purchase through prayer truth and compassion, wisdom and love, knowledge and mercy. Why? We are in close proximity to someone’s perplexity and we can hold the keys to set those captives free. Yet we must be free to give freedom to others. Brethren seeing how all these things are prevalent in our society and even in the body of believers we should be more ardent concerning our faith. Let me leave you with these words of exhortation from Jude.

(17) But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
(18) How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
(19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
(20) But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
(21) Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
(22) And of some have compassion, making a difference:
(23) And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
(24) Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
(25) To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. Jude 1:17-25

Brethren keep the faith; it is the gold of God for our enrichment! Pray that God’s anointing break every chain that binds your effectiveness in the name of Jesus! Selah

Shalom, Agape, & Amen!
D.R. Ritchie (Emissary)
