The Church is called to be the body of Yeshua the Messiah on Earth. It will always survive where people have learned to swim against the political correct tide.
In some ways, it is positive that the false Church has closed its doors. Their doctrine of a pre-Tribulation rapture has for some generations damaged the mind of heart of the truth-seekers. This false teaching has been like a sleeping pill. Now all who passivly accepted this doctrine have falen asleep.
These false Churches with their roots in Western Roman Catholicism are now empty. The Rapture did not come as her false prophets promised. She is a now a witness against her self.
You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
The true Church of the Messiah has always gathered and faced persecution. Going through a baptism of fire prevented the true believers to become Worldly and lukewarm. The true Church is still active, but only in Nations where it for some time has been an underground movement, branded illegal and harmfull.
The Word of God can not be set a side by the rules of the World. The Messiah proclaimed that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against His faithful flock of followers. They have laid down their lives for Him, and do not fear, even death and martyrdom.
Be like them. Be like a fish that swims against the stream. True followers of the Messiah will not swim directly into the net of the final antichrist. Rather die as a martyr in the service of the Messiah, proclaiming the eternal Gospel, acting on His commands and serving Him. There will be a day the Messiah will revenge the blood of his saints.
May Yeshua the Messiah give you wisdom and power to swim in the right direction. Be active. Continue to be His witness, gather, share a meal, anoint and lay hands on people. Keep on praying. Amen.
