 God is calling many of His saints to take a Radical Stand for Truth


The world was not worthy of them and will not be worthy of us if we follow steadfastly in their example and ways. Nothing less than a full recovery of the Church in the Book of Acts is the crying need of these last days. May we simply be found willing in the day of His power.

God is calling many of His saints to take a radical stand for truth and seek to be the Bride of Christ in view of the soon coming of the Lord.

This will mean bearing the reproach of Christ, not only from the lost world, but also from a believing Christendom that has not submitted to God’s Spirit in these last days. “So Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through His own blood. Let us, then, go to Him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace He bore. For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess His Name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Such a following of the Lord in this day will seem strange to most, yet it is out of a desire to be only involved with what the Lord is involved with. If the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit’s power are absent from the modern church, then such a church cannot be the Bride of Christ. “Oh how He longs to hear those voices of repentance and intercession asking Him—and saying to Him, Lord, if you don’t go with us, we aren’t interested in going anywhere. We’re not interested in church anymore if You Yourself are not present.”

When the Lord comes in the midst of His Church in full splendor we will see the glory of the Book of Acts again.

May we be of those that are fully pleasing to the Lord in these last days as we step out to follow the Lord “outside the camp.”
