Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Are you sensing that something in your church is just not quite right? Do not ignore that feeling because there is a reason for it.....it may be discernment from the Lord that it's time to flee from the 'stranger's voice'. Folks, the apostasy is upon us, don't wait any longer!

And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers." (John 10:5).

"The thing taught in these words is a very curious one and may seem foolishness to the world. There is a spiritual instinct in most true believers which generally enables them to distinguish between true and false teaching. When they hear unsound religious instruction, there is something within them which says, "This is wrong." When they hear the real truth as it is in Jesus, there is something in their hearts which responds, "This is right." The careless man of the world may see no difference whatever between minister and minister, sermon and sermon. The poorest sheep of Christ, as a general rule, will "distinguish things that differs" though he may sometimes be unable to explain why.

Let us beware of despising this spiritual instinct. Whatever a sneering world may please to say, it is one of the peculiar marks of the indwelling of the Holy Ghost. As such, it is especially mentioned by St. John, when he says, "Ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things." Let us rather pray for it daily in order that we may be kept from the influence of false shepherds. To lose all power of distinguishing between bitter and sweet is one of the worst symptoms of bodily disease. To be unable to see any difference between law and gospel, truth and error, Protestantism and Popery, the doctrine of Christ and the doctrine of man is a sure proof that we are yet dead in heart and need conversion."

J.C. Ryle (1816-1900)
"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." (Rev. 3:21)
