In times past, I have been content to say that it is up to God’s people to hear from God and do whatever He tells them to do.
While this is technically true, it is also true that God raises up certain men and women at strategic times to blow the trumpet, sound the alarm, and call God’s people to action.
As a result, I cannot just stand back and hope that people will figure it out.
So let me be very clear: God has already spoken and said, “Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4).
When I deeply considered this I realized that many (if not most) of God’s people are still in the harlot church system – prisoners of a religious spirit. That’s why God still calls them “My people” (at least for the time being).
But the fact remains that even God’s people can fall into sin and judgment if they ignore or refuse to obey God’s clear command to come out.
They may even be good people but they are trapped in a bad situation, and many of them don’t even realize it.
And many will talk about how these precious people “really love the Lord” yet Jesus says if you really love Me, you’ll do what I say.
So if all these people really “love God with all their heart” why do they continue to resist the Holy Spirit, ignore the clear commands of Scripture, and refuse to hear the truth so plainly presented?
These two conditions – claiming to love God while refusing to obey Him – characterize a Laodicean church of the lukewarm.
The fact that most of God’s people can participate and support something that is Antichrist and not even realize it is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
And, the fact that so many think they cannot be deceived, that their church is an exception to the rule, once again proves that the Scriptures are being fulfilled before our eyes.
In this four-part series of messages, we explore what God’s Word has to say about all this, and why so many are leaving Organized Religion to follow Jesus “outside the camp” in the Wilderness.
01. Trumpet Blast: Prepare for Spiritual War
Program Length: 2 hours, 3 minutes
“And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the Lord your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies” (Num. 10:9)
God is preparing a Remnant who can stand in the day of evil, who can bear the testimony of Jesus in the earth.
Already, the “great falling away” is happening, fulfilling prophecy and setting the stage for what comes next.
At stake is the continuity of a Christ-centered faith.
If we lose this Testimony, all the political, socioeconomic, racial, and religious problems we see now will look mild in comparison to the spiritual damage and loss that will occur if we lose the oil in our lamps and let the flame flicker out.
So I am blowing a trumpet, sounding the alert as a watchman on the wall, so you will know what to expect.
02. The Next Big Thing
Program Length: 1 hour, 58 minutes
A lot of people fall victim to the “just around the corner” syndrome…
“God is getting ready to do something powerful!”
“The world is about to see…”
“The Church is about to experience…”
You get the idea.
Does anyone have an original thought in their head, or can they only vainly regurgitate what someone up on the platform tells them?
Anyway, the trouble I have is the same people have been saying the same thing for 100 years and nothing much has changed.
When nothing much changes, people start making things up – and that’s when it becomes a problem.
They point to a movement or group as the “Big Thing” God’s been getting ready to do all along.
But these movements and groups tend to rise out of nowhere, ride the wave for a period of time, and then fade away like a vapor – only to be replaced by yet another “Big Thing” that God is supposedly doing next.
Here’s the thing…
If you’re looking for the “Big Thing” in the wrong place then you’ll miss the “Real Thing” even as it occurs!
Listen and learn what the Bible says about the next Big Thing (hint: it’s not the Rapture, and it’s not a Revival).
03. In the Wilderness, Prepare
Program Length: 1 hour, 38 minutes
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight'” (Mt. 3:3).
We see what we have been trained to see, what we are conditioned to see, what the Church tells us to see.
And they put all this in the past – fulfilled already in John the Baptist.
But I believe there is more to the Bible than a history book of already-fulfilled prophecies.
Parables are prophecies.
History repeats itself.
Our future is already written down.
Get this teaching if you’d like to go deeper than the surface-level, status quo interpretation of things and see what else lies just below the surface.
04. A Table in the Wilderness
Program Length: 1 hour, 32 minutes
The same complaining and unbelief that kept the Hebrews from entering into the Promised Land also prevents God’s people today.
“Yes, they spoke against God: They said, ‘Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?'” (Ps. 78:19)
God calls them out, but they hesitate, they waver, they wonder how God can possibly meet all their needs without some support system to keep them fed, watered, and pumped up each week.
“God has brought us into wilderness to kill us! Where is the food? Where is water? Let’s go back to Egypt!”
Many say the same thing today.
“Where is the good Bible preaching? Where is the fellowship? Let’s go back to church!”
Well, let me say that the Wilderness reveals who and what you really are.
When everything is taken away you discover how false and fake it all was.
What remains may seem small and insignificant, but it is real and genuine.
The purpose of this teaching is to encourage you to step out into the spiritual desert and trust that God will not only make a way for you and meet your needs, but will reveal Himself to you in ways that you cannot imagine, if you continue to sit within the safety and security of Babylon.
