Kingdom of Darkness and Kingdom of Light

One giant step in the direction of saving the “house” (Matt.7-built on rock) is to LightAndDark.jpgrecognize that there is a vast difference between the kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of Light, and the impossibility of bridging that disparity through any form of compromise or tolerance. The citizens of the Kingdom of Light must maintain purity and fealty to the King of Kings and His standards, values and covenant.  (Excerpt four from “Don’t Fear the Snakes” by Marty G.)


House on the Rock

Repentance will not, in a wholesale flash, sweep a land in a few hours time. That repentance must begin in individuals and families. A few righteous legislators and RockHouse.jpgjustices will not, by themselves, produce a reformation. There must be a value base embraced by many in the land that will be the ripe field for the seeds of repentance and, hence, reformation. There have been a number across the grid of Christianity who have espoused an opinion that just getting “the right people” into the “right positions” would somehow open a grand dam of reformation that would flood the land. Right people in right places is a key factor but not the full recipe. When a nation has multiple churchmen and multiple churches making news headlines on a regular basis because of values that were traded for a ready-to-eat bowl of soup (Esau, Gen.25:29-34) in a moment of carnal passion or a moment of greed, a message has been sent to that nation (and to regional spiritual entities) that the values and basis of reformation (Holy Scripture) are held as less than supreme. What house has ever stood that divided itself from its foundation? We must fashion ourselves after the wise man of Matt.7:24-27 who built his house upon a rock so that the opposition of rains, floods and winds could not destroy it.  (Excerpt three from “Don’t Fear the Snakes” by Marty G.)
