WHERE SHOULD THE CHURCH HAVE THEIR FOCUS NOW?

WHERE SHOULD THE CHURCH HAVE THEIR FOCUS NOW?
LATELY EVERY TIME I FOCUS ON PRAIZE IT IS INVOLVED IN DISCUSSION ABOUT THE WORLD
AND THE DEGRADATION OR DEATH GOING ON IN THE WORLD. WE READ ABOUT THE SLAUGHTER OF THE POLICE ON OUR STREETS, CONTINUED SLAUGHTER AND GUNFIGHTS ON CITY BY OUR YOUTH UNDER 21 WHO HAVE MADE A CHOICE TO SPEND THE REST OF A LIFE IN A CELL 9'*12'OR DIE WITH A CHEMICAL INJECTION BECAUSE OF A MURDER, THEY HAVE COMMITTED.

THEY HAVE GONE TO FAR AND AS A RESULT IN TEN YEARS OUR PRISONS WILL NO LONGER HOLD THEM. SOCIETY IS COMING TO THE INEVITABLE SITUATION WHERE THE GOD OF HEAVEN WILL HAVE TO STEP IN. IS THIS GOING TO BE THE RETURN OF THE LORD?

I HAVE A BOOK THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A SERIES ABOUT GLOBAL RENEWAL AND THE BOOK POINTS OUT THAT IT DOESN'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES PEOPLE SWARE THERE IS NO GOD, BUT THERE ARE A MILLION PLUS MAKING A COMMITMENT TO THE LORD EACH YEAR THAT PASSES.
SINCE THE YEAR 2000; THERE HAVE BEEN MORE THAN 15,000,000 COME INTO THE KINGDOM.
SOUTHERN GOSPEL FROM THE GAITHERS OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS AND PART OF THAT I WAS INVOLVED IN. AS I LISTENED to IT I WAS AWARE OF THE SWEET MOVING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN ME AND KNEW THAT "SOON AND VERY SOON I WAS GOING TO SEE THE KING".
OTHERS CAN DENY GOD, BUT I HAVE A SMALL CITY UP THERE THAT MY FAMILY OCCUPIES AND GUESS DEB AND i ARE GONNA MAKE IT OUR HOME.SOON

i WAS READING THE ARTICLE IN CBN ABOUT THE LATINO GROUP THERE IN SOUTHEASTERN UNIV. IN LAKELAND AND THE REVIVAL IN TAMPA AND ST PETERSBURG THAT THEY ARE PART OF, I LEFT SCHOOL IN THE LATE SIXTIES AND THERE WERE BARELY 300 LATINO'S AT SCHOOL AND NOW THERE ARE MORE THAN A MILLION
PENTECOSTAL BELIEVERS THERE IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA ALONE ALONE

ANYONE THAT SAYS GOD IS NOT REAL IS A LIAR.

Just heard on the TV that a 15 year old boy has killed someone in the past few days, I believe here in Phoenix. I am appalled. I guess I shouldn't be. Kids see all the attention a person gets when they shoot someone and they want to be recognized too. This is where our world is today. Sad, sad situation. I can't see Abba, Father, allowing it to continue much longer.

I am more than ready!

Hi Jim.

If I were a Christian, it would be difficult to turn off the events of the world and how it relates to my belief, because the world is so in-our-face anymore. We are so connected by social media and 24/7 coverage of events and the distortions of these events by media and our politicians to their benefit, that mere living is almost a second choice.

I mean to say that is true for nearly everyone and not just Christians, but this in-our-face world makes family life and personal life more difficult because of the constant turmoil, which non-believers accept only because "it is what it is" and do not assign "spiritual" aspects to it at all. That is not to say that we approve or like it the way it is.

Where should the church focus? Where it always has, on the individual. The greatest change in a person's life always comes at the individual level...to a person intimately. One by one and often one on one.

I often reinforce the idea that our family needs most to focus on our family. That most often means ignoring the world. Take care of your family and/or your close friends and set your house right. It is those that will make a strong defense against what comes your way. Of course, with Christians that defense is also held with your faith, as it should be.

It is the hope of all good people that the evil in our world fails each and every time it rears up. I think evil is suppose to wear upon those who choose good, else there would not be a struggle and evil would win.

With love, my friend.
