One of the first things that the enemy does when he attacks a nation or a people, is to close the churches. Satan HATES churches. Every church on this earth, even a so-called "dead" one, is a sign, and symbol to him of the Living God. He hates anything that reminds him of God because he knows his fate. He seeks to destroy the works of God every chance that he gets.
If Satan cannot use the Communists to close the churches like he has in many, many nations, then he will use other methods. He will use the laws of taxation.
Only the prayers are keeping the churches of our nation from being taxed now. But the devil is causing the money-hungry men to look with eyes of greed upon the churches, the institutions which God's people have built for His glory. Satan covets their money and would like to use them for his own cause.
Satan will also use compromising shepherds and the indifference and lukewarmness of the people to take over the churches for warehouses, etc. He would like them to just stand empty and be falling apart because of disuse. Whether by disuse or misuse, he seeks to destroy all churches and keep them from being houses of worship.
Our heritage as a nation is our churches.We were birthed out of a religious persecution seeking a new land to worship the ONE TRUE GOD. Now we have become a nation of many gods. We must guard our liberty and freedom and integrity. Let us not be deceived. We must be awake to the enemies intention against the church. Satan has a plan to abolished every church in every nation. But the GOOD NEWS is God's PLAN IS GREATER! He is building His church with living stones, brick upon brick. The true church may be hidden from view today, but it is growing more and more powerful in every nation all of the time. The Holy Spirit is continuously setting us apart to Christ alone.
We do not need a building to worship, we are a temple, individually and collectively, and as we gather together, it is the Spirit of worship that draws us to our God and one another.. Wherever two or three are gathered together in His Name, the Lord is right in our midst.
This is not a day to be asleep, wandering around in the world trying to find yourself. If we are a true born again believer, we have already been found and the Lord is setting us apart for His glory. Amazing days are ahead for those whose God is the Lord Jesus Christ. When the days get darker and His judgement more evident, by the grace of God He will hide us in the cleft of the rock and care for His own. His care for us will be sufficient for us to reach out and supernaturally care for others in need. I have read the back of the book and we win!!!! OUR GOD IS A GREAT GOD AND GREATLY TO BE PRAISED.
