The world's perspective of the institutionalized church will never change as long as man is "running" the show...
But God my friends has a remnant, a people, the redeemed of the Lord. These are those believers who have been saved by grace and now walk in the righteousness of the Lord. They are dedicated and committed to the purpose of their heavenly Father in them. Their vision remains focused on Jesus, the Son of the living God. Filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, they worship Him with uncompromising zeal and remain prepared and ready for the great and awesome day of the Lord.
Their lifestyles represent and reflect the nature of Him who called them out of darkness into His marvelous light. These are those who are defined by the Christ in them, the hope of glory.
Soon the world will see the manifestation of the glory that dwells on the inside of every spirit-filled believer for the hour has come and now is for the remnant to rise up, by the Spirit of God and accomplish the very purpose of God on this earth as it is in heaven.
The world will be amazed at the signs and wonders that will flow out of the "no-name" brands and those who are considered "ordinary" God Himself is raising them up to shame the wisdom of man (1 Cor 1:27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong).
The call is now to prepare the way of the Lord (the way of the Lord is found in the heart of every believer), for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Sound the trumpets, ready yourselves, for the return of Jesus is imminent!
Men will scoff and mock, they will persecute you for standing on the truth, but those who endure to the end, they shall be saved.
Mark 13:13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
My friend, this is exciting stuff!
