1 Peter 4:17-18 KJV “For the time is come that JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?  And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?”
The mainstream church is backslidden at best. What I mean is many churches were never real churches to begin with. Since they never front-slid it is impossible for them to be backslidden. But some churches were on the road that leads to life. They allowed the world to creep in. They wanted to become just like they’re oppressors. Sounds familiar?
God calls us to be holy; to be separate, yet many of us claiming to be Christians act just like and even worse than the world. What will this provoke God to do? The same thing He did to Israel. The Lord allowed the Babylonian empire to destroy Israel. Those who weren’t destroyed were captured as prisoners. This was their just punishment for their brazen unfaithfulness. The Babylonians (the nations) are coming again! They will strip the fake church of all her wealth, destroy them, and lead many into captivity just like ancient Israel. God is the same God yesterday, today, and forever! (Hebrews 13:8)
JUDGEMENT MUST COME
Most people don’t want to hear about God’s judgment. It’s not a soothing topic. But none of us are guiltless when it comes to sin. Repentance is the only way to escape God’s wrath! Repent before it is too late. There are some who are guilty or in danger of committing another kind of sin:🤔
Hebrews 10:26-27 NLT “Dear friends, IF WE DELIBERATELY CONTINUE SINNING after we have received knowledge of the truth, THERE IS NO LONGER ANY SACRIFICE that will cover these sins.  There is ONLY THE TERRIBLE EXPECTATION OF GOD’S JUDGMENT and the RAGING FIRE that will consume his enemies.”
2 Peter 2:17-22 NIV “These people are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them.  For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error.  They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.”  If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, THEY ARE WORSE OFF AT THE END than they were at the beginning.  It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.  Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”’
Hebrews 6:4-6 NLT “For IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BRING BACK TO REPENTANCE those who were once enlightened-those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit,  who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come-  and WHO THEN TURN AWAY FROM GOD. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BRING SUCH PEOPLE BACK TO REPENTANCE; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.”
Yes, this is as serious as you just read.😢 Some have reached the point of no return. IT IS WRITTEN! Others if they continue in their willful sin are in danger of doing the same. Again, there are some who have reached the point of no return!😟 For them, “There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies.” (Hebrews 10:27 NLT) This doesn’t have to be our fate. If you have backslidden get out of that place (spiritually)! If your church is backslidden get out of that place (physically and spiritually)! Be separate says the Lord. Pray to God for forgiveness. Also pray to Him to find and meet with true believers. If you can’t find a good church maybe you can start a fellowship. All it takes is two or more believers meeting together in Jesus name for the purpose of edifying and encouraging one another with God’s word.😊
The church as we know it today is apostate. It is in serious trouble. Jesus said this would happen in the time of the end. But you and I don’t have to be a part of it. Concerning the time of the end Jesus said:
Matthew 24:10-11 NIV “At that time MANY WILL TURN AWAY FROM THE FAITH and will betray and hate each other,  and MANY FALSE PROPHETS WILL APPEAR and DECEIVE MANY PEOPLE.”
And speaking by the Holy Spirit concerning the day of the Lord the apostle Paul wrote:
2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.”
The Greek word for, “Falling away,” in the above passage means apostasy; a defection from truth. God said that right before His coming there would be a great falling away or defection from the truth FIRST. This is why you see what you see in the world today, even in the so-called church, it is apostate. Truth is thrown to the ground. (Daniel 8:12) But remember, this world we live in devoid of truth (even the so-called church) is also a sign that the Day of the Lord is upon us, it is near, right at the door. (Matthew 24:33)😊 Jesus who is the truth (John 14:6) is indeed coming soon, and judgment begins first with the household of God; the church. Let’s be ready for Him when He comes. Let’s get out of the world’s apostate false religions!
Revelation 18:4 NIV “Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “ ‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues.”
