___________________________________________________________________________

All the signs were there...the rapid descent of society, caused by the glib acceptance of evil by the Church. It has birthed a new level of degradation that has even reached our young children as they explore satanism, sexuality, sensuality, and more. Once regarded as “evil,” and then as choices to be “tolerated,” immorality is now glamorized and glorified all around us.

It became crystal clear one morning three years ago when I happened across a TV channel for children. Witches, vampires, crystal balls, and black magic were boldly celebrated in a cartoon for kids.

"But it's just for fun!" you might say, “It’s just a harmless cartoon.”

For far too long, we have allowed, and even supported, evil in the name of entertainment. We laugh at raunchy, lewd movies, we watch demonic horrors, and we purchase books that promote witches and warlocks. It's time to raise up a standard and take a stand against the evil that is thinly disguised as entertainment. But this is not mere rhetoric – it takes repentance, obedience, submission, and a commitment to change our actions.

Many in the Body of CHRIST have allowed themselves to fall prey to the “deception of the gradual,” and so the Bride has sullied herself with a mixture of “secular Christianity.” You see, when we can be entertained by evil, we begin to tolerate evil. When we tolerate evil, we slowly begin to accept evil as being "normal." When we accept evil, we begin to condone evil. And when we start condoning evil, we have fallen to a place so far from the Holiness of GOD that we begin to question the validity of HIS Word, or even begin to manipulate it for our purposes!

The Bride of CHRIST has sullied herself and we decry everything and everyone else rather than taking personal responsibility.

“At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. 14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14

It's up to the Church to repent. It's up to the Church to humble Herself. It's up to the Church to come clean. No compromise! No mixture!

There is a four-letter word that has been misused and overused in the Church: HOLY. This one word evokes pictures of legalistic righteousness, or a list of “do’s and don’ts” that must be followed, or an older church “saint” who judgmentally uses it to condemn the lost and exalt his/her own self-righteousness. But what does it really mean to be “holy?”

“…let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.” 2 Corinthians 7:1

Holiness is simply cleansing ourselves from everything that contaminates our body and our spirit. Why? Because we fear GOD.

The answer to the ills of society does not rest in the government. It does not rest in one political party over another. It does not rest in Hollywood. It does not rest in education. It does not rest in our judicial system. It does not rest in the police.

The answer rests in JESUS. And once you and I (HIS Bride) come to the realization that we must purify ourselves…humble ourselves…pray…seek HIS Face…and actively turn from our wicked ways…then, and only then, will we see revival sweep through our land.

It starts with you. And it starts with me. Will you answer the call?

“So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. 16 For the Scriptures say, ‘You must be holy because I am holy.’”

1 Peter 1:14-16

Prayer:

1.    Ask the LORD to show you the areas in your life where you have come into agreement with the world or the enemy.

2.     Pray and renounce the wickedness that has crept into your life or your household.

3.     Request the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD to sanctify you and make you holy.

Action:

1.    Be obedient and implement practical application of holiness in what you watch, in what you listen to, in who you hang out with, in what you think about – in all of the influences of your life.

2.    Find someone who you can be transparent with and will hold you accountable against the “deception of the gradual.”
