The Apostle Paul speaking to Timothy described the days we are living in now … times that are difficult and demonic ... times of spiritual darkness and unprecedented delusion. Paul's words were not a promise - to be believed - but rather a warning ... a call to preparation for answering the confusion and compromise we see in the church and in the culture.
Please pray and partner with us for a permanent location. We are still feeding over a thousand meals a month and providing shower and laundry for our homeless guests. There are great testimonies of how God has helped people break the chains of poverty as well as testimonies of those who have been dramatically changed by serving the homeless.
Reaching people with the gospel is one of the mandates of the Master. Romans 10:13-17 reminds us that "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" but without a messenger obeying the call to preach the gospel no one can respond to the invitation. The Lord gave this commission to His church promising a partnership with authority and power to do the work of the Kingdom.
During this Christmas season, as we reflect on the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, we must remember why He has kept us here on earth. Though this world is not our home, and we look forward to the return of the Lord, we have a mandate and responsibility to remain in the world but not of the world. While we wait for the blessed return of Jesus, there is much work to be done ... we dare not abandon ship in the midst of the storm.
The Apostle Paul strongly exhorted the church to awaken from sleep and walk wisely, carefully observing the conditions of our present world. "Redeeming the time" because the days are evil, we must understand in these times what the will of God is.
