Where are the men in our churches who are willing to stand for what is right? We have bought into the world’s philosophies and the church has become feminized. Men, God has given a divine order for the reason that we might show the picture of Christ and His Bride to the nations. If we are going to advance in the battle, we must have men with a rod of iron in their backbone. May God forgive us for ever quitting in the first place!
HT: Jeremy B. Strang
The words of the message were very convicting. We need more men like Nehemiah who was willing to weep in anguish over the fallen down walls of Jerusalem and the destruction that has assaulted the walls of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need more willing to weep over the sin that has run rampant through the halls of our churches. We need more who will seriously pray that God will break us, and that whatever it takes to be a pure church that He will bring it to pass in our lives.
Here is a link to the entire message as well.
I just listened to this sermon segment from David Wilkerson on anguish. I wholeheartedly agree and have to ask, where is the anguish in the church today? We weep and wail over an election, but where is the weeping and wailing over the sins of the people in our nation, our communities or even in our local churches? We should be driven by anguish to deep prayer and an unquenchable desire to share the gospel, yet the Church is more consumed with making friends with the world. Please watch this video and ask yourself, where is the anguish today?
