As disciples of Jesus Christ we are to be Holy For He is Holy. The church needs to be cleansed, restored, and healed. We are living in a critical time in the eyes of the world are upon us. Sin has been exposed within the ranks of the church and the world is watching to see how we deal with it. Will we allow sin to remain, or will we take a firm stand against it?
The real issue facing the Body of Christ today is not how we are to deal with those who have sinned, but what we are going to do about the sin which we have allowed to infiltrate and pollute the Church. The shaking we are experiencing within the church is not over. The Church of Jesus Christ is going to go through the greatest siftings process to bring forth all true believers.
The spirit-filled people will be clearly noted from all other people in the world-those who want to move of God and so-called compromisers. We are entering into a time of spiritual cleansing and purging within the church in final preparation before Jesus returns. God is going to separate and set aside a holy people by the Spirit of God searching hearts to reveal, convict and praying to repentance all those who are allowed sin to remain in their lives. Christ is going to purge and cleanse His Church.
Malachi prophesied (Malachi 3:3).
And he shall set as a refiner and purifier of silver ; and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering a righteousness.
We're going to pass through His refining fire. All that is unholy and on unacceptable to Him----will be burned up.
To compromise and lukewarmness we have allowed sin to infiltrate the church. Christians (so -called) are following after their own ungodly desires. Their hearts and minds are filled with lust towards members of the opposite sex (even same-sex), their hearts are filled with covetousness and worldliness. There is bitterness and resentment in their hearts, and many are holding unforgiveness and harboring spirits of ill-will towards others. It is hard now to distinguish between the unbeliever and those who are processing to be born-again Christians.
