Lets Build A Wall For the Lord

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The Lord spoke to Ezekiel and said “Again the word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, say to the land, ‘You are a land that has not been cleansed or rained on in the day of wrath.’  There is a conspiracy of her princes within her like a roaring lion tearing its prey; they devour people, take treasures and precious things and make many widows within her.  Her priests do violence to my law and profane my holy things; they do not distinguish between the holy and the common; they teach that there is no difference between the unclean and the clean; and they shut their eyes to the keeping of my Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them.  Her officials within her are like wolves tearing their prey; they shed blood and kill people to make unjust gain.  Her prophets whitewash these deeds for them by false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says’—when the Lord has not spoken. The people of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and needy and mistreat the foreigner, denying them justice. “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. 31 So I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger, bringing down on their own heads all they have done, declares the Sovereign Lord.” (Ezekiel 22:23-31 NIV)


In America, and the world, the land has not been cleansed and been made righteous. Only through holy obedience to God can the land be restored. Many leaders, in both the U.S. and internationally are corrupt, taking from the people. In Egypt, and other countries how many widows are created with the killing of innocent people? How many children and woman have died?

How many, claiming to represent God rob, kill and oppress worldwide?

False Teachers Led To Disastor

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The book, The Harbinger  by Jonathan Cahn provided a fictional look at the reality of a nation turning it’s back on the Lord. The consequences were stunning. Is this real?

A reading of 2 Peter 2:1-9 provides a Biblical insight:

“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

Priorities During An Emergency

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The crash landing of flight Asiana Flight 214 at San Francisco International Airport that was survived by most passengers and crew was amazing. As the plane was evacuated, a fire started to spread.

Know Where Your Money Is Going

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Some fundraising does a good job of taking money in, and putting no money out. The Tampa Bay Times ran a study highlighting “The 50 Worst Charities In America”, chart posted here:  http://bit.ly/17rGkdP .

 

Organizations responding to disasters are not immune from providing little bang for the dollar. The Ready Church and Ready City programs encourage the local church and Christian ministries to engage in fundraising locally and then deploy those funds to meet needs directly. This helps the church be the church.
