Dan 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand' but the wise shall understand.
In light of this scripture it is easy to understand that in the last days the ones "purified" and made "white" are also "tried". In light of this it also says some interesting things about the wicked,
1. they shall do wickedly
2. they shall not understand
It is my thinking that at no other time in history does this scripture speaks directly to the church than now. We all know and understand that evil will do evil but what about all the "happy clappy" Christian and Christian leader's today? They seem void of any understanding of the concept of being tried and while they proclaim to know Christ as Lord doesn't the bible confirms to us that a simple profession of faith without a life/heart change is not enough. The last part of this verse states this:only the wise shall understand. The book of proverbs proclaims that the fear of God is the beginning of all understanding. It is the belief of this church that many are loosing their "fear of God" in these last days. This is causing them to pursue ministries and ministers who will tickle their ears in place of telling them the truth. The heart breaking thing is that many Christians seem to be perfectly contend with this. I see many posts on Facebook of Christians not only excusing but defending the evil ways of this world. I would like to encourage all you to "be ye in the world but not of it" and to "come out from among them". We may be well into 2015 but for the rest of this year I would like to challenge all the members and friends of Liberty Worship Center to do this. Get into the Bible for yourselves and let scripture interpret scripture for itself, line upon line precept upon precept. I know what you will find is this with God there is only black and white, not 1 or 50 shades of grey in which you can make up your own mind about what God says. His word is easily understood and His expectations of what He wants for all of us if we the church will humble ourselves and seek it.
