Oppose the Condemned with Prayer

via TJC

  Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. - Jude 1:3-4

There is so much to unpack this week in the one page letter from Jesus’ disciple Jude, also known as Judah. We know he is writing after Jesus ascended but he does not mention which church he is writing to.  He acknowledges that an urgent response is necessary to combat the issues the church is facing, even postponing other teachings because it is so important to address their current plight, ungodly teachers. He says that the doctrines of these false teachers are not a surprise as it was foretold they would come but he cautions that they are doing very real damage to the faithful by twisting monetary and sexual teachings to suit their needs. Today we see these same topics being addressed to better understand how to be compassionate and call those living in blatant, unrepentant greed and lust to turn to Christ and away from sin.  Some teachers, pastors and priests ignore that there is a problem, redefining sin as if that was in their power. It is not, and they will have to answer for their disobedience and all of those they led astray at their judgment. Jesus made very clear what counts as sin and what is ungodly and Jude makes it clear that anyone denying sin, denies Christ at the same time.

Daily Battle Order:

Today, pray that God will soften your heart enough to accept correction if you are in error.  Also pray for all the false disciples in the world, the condemned. Pray that their hearts would be burdened with the consequences of their false teachings so they will be called to repent and amend their ways.

I will continue to write this without fear as the cartel held me for 7 days and I was not afraid. I said constantly, " I forgive you and I have no malice" it was enough to make them laugh and then they were irritated and then just videotaped me. The drugs they gave me did not work like they thought. On the 7th day after I they kicked my mattress and thought I had passed... they waited three hours and called paramedics. After a chest rub for CPR I "howled" like a dog. Doctors moved me to a unit and after a few hours I was normal with chest x-ray, cat scans and telling call AF. 1 pilot…
