THE SILENCE OF THE CHURCH

Greetings Watchers!

I received this letter from a Watcher yesterday, and thought the answer might be one that you’ve been wondering about.

 

Dear Brother Sal,

I wanted to write to you about a trend that is deeply disturbing to me, and that is the apathy of the church regarding current events in the world.

I used to watch the International Intelligence Briefing on TBN with author and minister Hal Lindsey every week, and felt like I gained valuable information about events in the middle east that wasn't being told on the news stations, and Mr. Lindsey's commentary was always passionate and "against the grain", so to speak. But as bible prophecy is being fulfilled at a more rapid pace they're broadcasts have become more generic, as are the teachings of most ministers.

I don't understand this! This is the most exciting time in Christian history and most churches are "business as usual", they seem to be shying away from the subject. I don't know if it's because they're afraid of creating a panic, looking foolish, or that they have found their faith in the accuracy of the bible wanting.

Isn't this the time for revival? The time to bring as many souls to Christ as possible in the short time we have left? In my opinion they should be preaching about current events loudly and continuously, offering encouragement and comfort.

It may be wrong, but I don't go to church, I'm afraid of false teachers and hypocrites. I would rather struggle along trying to teach myself than to be taught something that is wrong. I know the bible states that God will punish the false teachers, but will He also punish the student who didn't know better than to believe the false teachings?

My faith is strong but my knowledge of some things in the bible is lacking, and I don't want to be led down the wrong path. Why can't we get knowledge and comfort from our local churches? Why are ministers afraid to talk about current events in the world, when that message is more important now than ever? I feel like I've been left to fend for myself (except for prayer and guidance from God).

I appreciate your teachings more than you know; you’re providing a great and much needed service to me and all Christians who can't get help locally. Please pray for me and ministers everywhere that God will show them the needs of the community that we rely on them to meet.

Your Sister In Christ,
S

____________________________________________________

Hi S!

Thank you for your note.  It's nice to hear from you.

I have answered this question many times, in many ways.  Just a couple of weeks ago I asked Dr. Dorothy Terry of the Evangel Bible College that same thing, and her answer was:

"I think the reason people don't see is because many are afraid of prophecy.  Most of the ministers I know are very ignorant of the subject.  It appears to some, as if it threatens their position.

Others are a little flippant of their ignorance of the subject.  And others are totally off in their understanding. Few indeed, are the ones who have spent time studying the prophecies of the end times.  And of those, most go along with the traditional idea of it being the EEC.  The teachability of most of them is another problem.  If they have any understanding of the prophecies of the end-times at all, they are seldom willing to listen to an alternative viewpoint.  I think they all feel threatened by a subject they know little about and are ashamed to admit to.  The rest?   Pride.  Pride, pure and simple.  They think They KNOW what the Bible teaches.

Dr Terry is a 45-year student of the prophecies, and truth-seeking Eschatologist.  She endorses CHN's teaching on the end times, and is using its research in her own classes at the college.

She recognizes the same thing that I think we all see in what has happened to the Church in recent times. Fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is what happened to it.  We have entered the time when we are fast approaching the beginning of the final week of Daniel, and at that time, scripture tells us that the Church has taken on characteristics reminiscent of the days of the Church at Laodicea.  These are lukewarm times in the Church.

Consider the landscape painted of the Church, from the first to the seventh, as Jesus writes to each of them.  A whole new world opens up as we begin to hear and understand His displeasure with them right from the start.

Beginning with Ephesus, the first Church, whose name is a flower opening to the sun in the morning, is found guilty of having left their first love.  But, in the second Church, Smyrna, which means, “bitterness”, He found no fault.  For it was in that second age of the Church, called bitterness that Christians were called upon to give up their lives for the sake of the faith.  You talk about your Action, based upon your belief, sustained by confidence; there is the full measure of the meaning of Faith, as God defined it.

And, He found fault with the rest of them right up the line, until He came to the Church of Philadelphia.  Behold, He says, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.  And, if you have any doubt as to where that opens door leads, just read on past the letters to the churches, to the part that says, I looked, and behold a door was opened in heaven!

But, before we get ahead of ourselves, He even goes on to tell the Philadelphians that He going to come quickly.  Now to me that means that this next age of the Church, coming after the Philadelphians, called the Laodiceans aren’t going to get much of a foot hold before He brings the age of the Church to it’s conclusion.

Jesus clearly delineated the Laodicean’s problems, gave them the solution and told them that when they heard the warning, all they had to do was repent.  Then He said that if you can hear what I’m saying, you’d better pay attention to what you heard!

So, what all of this says is that the landscape of the Church at the end times is supposed to have characteristics which can be depicted as “lukewarm”.  A Church Full of folks justified in their own righteousness, with a whole lot of material things on their minds, blinding them to their nakedness.

And, here once again in this scripture you encounter the Messiah landscape, as it is the Messiah that is issuing this warning to repent.  And here, it is made clear that it is the final warning.

That brings us back to the warning sign of the Rapture, which is also embodied in the Messiah landscape, which is cast in the sign of Jonah.  That warning to repent to be saved from God’s destruction was for 40 days.

In the Messiah landscape, there remain yet two things to be accomplished, the 40-day warning and the saving from destruction.  The saving from God’s destruction is the Rapture, and resurrected saints will give the warning for 40 days, just as the resurrected Jonah did.  Those saints will rise on the Feast of First Fruits as the promise of the full harvest yet to come at the end of the 40 days warning period.

Now the reason this is not widely preached today is because the Pastors, who have little time or knowledge of the subject rely on the “gurus” for their information, and like you, see that history is making a mockery out of their case, so rather than pass along outdated information to the flocks, they say nothing in the hopes that everyone will be raptured if they keep them focused on salvation.

They are gun shy of “new” theories, because of how badly they are being burnt for having listened to the old theories.  They haven’t the time to devote to learning it all over again, so the congregations are either getting false information, or no information, as you yourself have found to be the case.

Now realize that we are talking in broad terms.  There are some Pastors who don’t fall into this category.  But, for the most part, I think this explanation answers your question.

Now, this is what to do about it.  STUDY!  The answer is written in the scripture and in time.  It is God’s modus operendi to spell everything out in His word, and then make some things a mystery to be known only in their time.

The case in favor of this is the fact that the Church was a mystery, known only in the mind of God, written into the scripture, but seen only in it’s time, after it was revealed by God.  The Rapture was a mystery, known only in the mind of God until it was revealed. But, the timing remained a mystery, even to Paul.

God choose to make the catching away of the living body of Christ, the final event in this grafted on chapter in His salvation plan.  He revealed that to be so, but he placed the timing of the event into the prophecy of Daniel, which is the prophecy about the last days, and sealed that word until it’s time.  Therefore, the timing of the catching away could never be known until you reached that time when Daniel’s word began to be seen on the historical stage.

And when that time arrived, all the things that were previously written into the scripture that had been hidden in the mind of God become revealed, just as it was with the Church.  And, since this is the conclusion of the Church revelation, the answers would be found in those same scripture concerning the Church.  And, lo and behold, when we look there, we find them, sticking out like a sore thumb.

But, like in most fields of endeavor, it takes someone on the cutting edge to advance the knowledge.  The best example I can give is that of the “comet watchers”.  They scan the skies every night watching for potentially dangerous comets and asteroids.  Everyone knows that the possibility of a collision exists, and even though they don’t pay too much attention to it during their daily lives, they would perk up to the info immediately if one of these “watchers”, gave the word of an impending catastrophe.

In the field of Eschatology, “scanning the skies”, is watching for the signs of the times that Jesus said would be as easy to read as the Mediterranean weather.  I have been a devoted watcher for over 20 years, and have mapped the landscape of the Biblical end times over that period of time, and it clearly shows what it shows.  I don’t care what my protractors say, not one of them has presented a case as solidly built on scripture and history as has this Ministry.

It should say a lot to Christians, when the academic dean of a Bible College, affiliated with the Christian Life School of Theology, a 45 year Eschatologist and seeker of truth writes:

“Sal has done much historical and Biblical research and has answers for some of the questions left unanswered by many other exegetes.  He allows the Bible to be its own interpreter and thus comes through with the most Biblically accurate interpretation I have studied thus far in my 45 years of studying Bible Prophecy.  All of us living in this day and hour owe it to ourselves to read and study the book and maps Sal has provided”.

It was false teachers that came to the Thessalonians and tried to foil the teaching that Paul had taught them about the end times.  This Ministry is re-teaching EXACTLY what Paul taught about the end times to the Thessalonians, who were the same as you and I; Christians!  In addition, this Ministry adds the increased knowledge revealed by having reached the time when Daniel’s prophecy is seen on the historical stage of time.

And, we build a solid case for it!  But, it takes study to understand it, because through the long ages, we lost contact with the prophecies, so we are not as “up” on them as we should be.  It’s just like being out of shape.  You can’t get back into shape by just reading about a diet and reading about the exercises you need to do.  You have to get in there and do them!  Then you will see the results you want, not before!

Our end time awareness Bible study is what Dr. Terry is endorsing with her word.  If you want to catch up on the prophecies quickly, and learn where we are in Biblical time, I suggest you send for a copy and start your study now.

As always, if my teaching is a blessing to you, then follow the Biblical principle of giving to the storehouse where you get your meat.  Remember, giving is part of the trip, a very joyous part of the trip.  That’s why the Lord loves a hilarious giver, and promises to pour down a blessing on him that cannot be contained.  So, when you give to support this word, give generously and hilariously.  The Lord will love you for it.  Remember also that we need your prayers, so if that’s all that you can give, then give them generously and hilariously.

And as always, please pray with me: We made it through March!  We are faithing on that Lord. Amen.  There are not many days left in March, and we are quite a bit behind, so please get your pledges in as soon as possible.

Thank you for listening and God bless all of you.

God bless.

Humbly,
Your Brother in Christ
