He came in the most humble of ways; through the womb of a girl whom He created; came to His own seated on the back of a donkey; and willingly and patiently, endured the scourging, crucifixion of men and bore the almighty weight of His Father’s own crushing punishment for all mankind’s sins.
The next time:
He comes in all glory, power and with a flash of light spreading from the east to the west; He will come waging war while riding on a white horse; He will utterly destroy all sin and all those who have slandered the Father, blasphemed the Holy Spirit and have spurned Him by profaning His blood of His covenant of sacrificial grace. He will come back in the full strength of the wrath of the Lamb, devouring as the Lion of Judah.
What a glorious day it will be for the Bride, the true Church; what a beginning day of torment it will be for everyone who denies Jesus as the Christ and disobeyed His word.

All sin is enmity against God. Sin is a defiance and, in essence, a denial of God Himself. What should be our response when we come to realize our sin against God?
What was Peter’s response after he denied the Lord? “And he went out and wept bitterly.” (Luke 22:62) What was David’s response to his killing of Uriah when Nathan reproved him and said, “You are the man!” (2 Sam. 12:7)? David responded by saying, “I have sinned against the Lord.” (2 Sam. 12:13) And again, over a year later, “For I know my transgrressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified when You speak and blameless when You judge. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.” (Psalm 51:3-5)
Why are there no tears of repentance today? Why is there no brokeness over sin? When the Spirit of God transforms a soul, convition of sin, repentance of sin and a continual growing in holiness are realities of a true Christian. No conviction, no tears, no repentance, no holiness are results of false assurance and “worldly salvations” leading unto death.
Where are the tears of your soul?

Tom Roten Morning Show Radio Interview – Realities of a True Christian
This morning I had the privilege of recording a radio interview with Tom Roten. The interview is scheduled to air tomorrow (7.17.2012) and afterwards the whole interview will be available via podcast.
The interview was heavily focused on Christian persecution. Pray that the Lord would use my feeble words.
Peace and blessings,
