The State of the Nation.

Without conditions? : John 14: 15 - If ye love me, keep my commandments.

1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

Should we really be setting aside ‘Sacred Safe Spaces’ for LGBT believers to worship a Holy God? If so what next? Sacred Safe Spaces for those who enjoy having sex with animals or enjoy spending Friday nights watching pornographic movies else taking drugs, or does God show us a better way?

Matthew 16:24-26
24 - Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 - For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26 - For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Each and everyone of us has in some way been affected by ‘The Fall’, yet we are not to yield to its desires workings in the flesh but to Christ who was manifest to destroy them.

1 John 3:8
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

And scripture leaves us in no doubt that God takes away His defence from those nations who do so wickedly as represented by the Church, as He did the Canaanites and I believe is beginning to do in the UK today which is why we are falling before other gods such as Islam, because our shield of defence has been taken away.

Numbers 14:9
Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.

If a society could have a gender it has become feminine here in the West, and thus puts ‘feelings’ above logic to allow the vast majority to be offended that the ‘feelings’ of a tiny minority are not hurt promoted now by ‘Political Correctness’ and ‘Equality’ [so called] which forced millions of people’s marriages to be redefined to include that which is not convenient.

I squarely lay the blame on our feeble weak-minded clergy who not wishing to suffer for the Cross compromised God's clearly announced authoritative order in the Church and a believers marriage...

1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Therefore, what we are seeing today is the second Apostasy that we were told would come, even the fall of those [The Church] who were redeemed back into God's authoritative order from the first apostasy in The Garden...

2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [Christ’s Return] shall not come, except there come a falling away [An apostasy] first, and that man of sin [Antichrist] be revealed, the son of perdition;

Regardless what the rest of society is doing the state of the Church will always effect the nation it serves, and as the vast majority of the Churches in the UK have trampled God’s authoritative order under their feet so too has the nation whom they were to be a light and a guide, fallen.

Resting in the lap of Delilah.
