Keith Green on Commitment
God has commanded the Church to "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation"! (Mark 16:15) If we were really doing our job and living the lives Jesus has commanded us, then the people in these lands would have the truth of Jesus and His holy promises to compare with these Marxist pipe-dreams.
"And you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." (Matt. 1:21)
In a land of freedom, where believers have never had a greater opportunity to see the Lord's glory descend upon a nation, the cry of “Depart from Me, I never knew you!" awaits an unfaithful bride who loved her pleasures and programs, who delighted in her fundraising and building, more than the holy pleasure of delivering America and its spoil to a mighty God, through a true revival of prayer, repentance, and holiness. (See Matt. 25:14-30.)
The persecuted Church has little choice but to endure their tribulations to the end. (Matt 24:14) But the fat, obnoxiously wealthy Church of our land "who has need of nothing" will be horrified when they see their temples were built of wood, hay, and stubble (I Cor. 3:12-14), and their gold, silver, and jewels (men's precious souls and the restored honor of God) were left lying on the ground, ignored, never having been put into the treasury of the Lord.
"So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Because you say 'I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked..." (Rev. 3:16-17).
