2 Thessalonians 2:3a
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away…(NASB)
The old saying, “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” is one we often hear when people are slow in making progress on a project. Another saying that I think should be as important is, “Jerusalem wasn’t destroyed in a day.” The destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple years; it was a slow erosion of faith, apathy toward God and before you knew it the temple was being taken away piece by piece. By the time the last pieces were taken either people didn’t care or were already captive, a tragic period in the nation of Israel.
What happened to the Old Testament Temple may once again be happening in lives today. Lives and families that were once faithful, fervent and committed to the Gospel, holiness and living an overcoming life are slowly being taken captive. What was once important has been forgotten or become unimportant. How do you loose your walk with God? Just a little bit each day; a slow erosion of godliness, apathy toward the Word, prayer and the house of God and before you know it you are gone. Today I ask the families of LC to take evaluation, is your spiritual house being taken away piece by piece? If so, let me wake you up. Save your life and home before its too late.
