To well meaning Pastors:
Before you contact me, I ask you to pray and consider
carefully what you say, for I am astounded at pastors I have long
admired and respected responding with coaching that I should not say
this or that, because the people will not like it. I know you mean
well, but there is so much concern
about how things are "presented." Reminding me that if I address too
many issues, I will offend so many groups that few will listen to me.
In all gentleness, when Jesus healed a woman, did He tell her to "go
and sin no more in THIS area for now..." When He started His ministry,
did He say "REPENT" just a little at a time? Were the Ten Commandments
given one at a time? Is there a man of faith anywhere in the Bible
that was given a message and he strategized to present it in pieces?
When Jesus comes, He will not come one piece at a time. If you look at
society and the direction our nation is heading, if anyone is taking
small bites at a time and changing, it's the pastors. Many who are accepting and revising and watering down what God has
said to fit the people's demands. God has given the true shepherds
2000 years to feed the sheep. But the sheep are now leading many
shepherds and its all on a road to destruction.
Presentation? Jonah spoke one time and thousands repented. Jeremiah
spoke how many decades and hardly anyone listened to him? Was Jeremiah
wrong and Jonah presenting well? Should Jeremiah be taking notes from
Jonah? Or should he just give the message as God said and wait for God
to do what He will? Should I worry that people will not listen to me?
No, I will just give what He
told me to give. The people can
choose to believe what they will and respond as they will, not to me
but to Him.
With an individual, the Holy Spirit directs what area to work on
and when. But as a nation that is killing its children while teaching
the surviving children atheism, homosexuality and pagan worship, would
God focus on only one of the offenses and approve or ignore the rest?
Are any of these offenses acceptable to God? Does judgment never come?
When I wrote the first objections to teaching children to accept Islam
in public school, I personally delivered the ten pages of what is in
our children's textbooks to pastors all over my town, and advised them
about prayer to Allah in class. Only one of them warned the parents to
at least talk to their children. The majority were too concerned about being
politically correct. The excuses were unbelievable, one compared
idolatry of Allah to preferences between Christian camps. They
couldn't take sides.
I am believing for revival, I believe America can turn around and
this darkness that is approaching can be held off for a few
generations. But only by God's grace through a deep and swift revival.
So dear pastors, before you write me and try to coach me about what
to say and how to say it, consider obeying God and not man. Consider
being a true shepherd, stand firm when opposition comes as Jesus said
it would, feed and tend the sheep. Tell the people the truth, the
WHOLE truth. LEAD the people to protect our
