It's Raining Revelations

I was walking down a street in downtown Spokane on a misty day recently when I noticed a sign pointing down to the sidewalk.  The sign read: "weather report".  On the sidewalk was written "It's raining" with some sort of water repelling chemical. It was kind of cute I guess. The only time you can see the sign is when it's raining, as if it wasn't already obvious.

I am often reminded of that little sign in these days. I spotted an article today that reported yet someone else coming out of the closet on the gay marriage issue. This time it was the "front-man for the popular Christian band Jars of Clay", Dan Haseltine. These outings have ceased to be shocking or surprising. It seems in fact that they are precipitating out of the "Church" like rain.

But as this rain hits the real Church, that is the Christians whose worldview is informed by a serious view of scripture, it is repelled. The true Church is beginning to emerge as the fake church moves with culture into increased wickedness.  Persecution has begun, and it will increase because on the sidewalk of this world is written "You are not unaccountable", and the world and it's worldly "church" will do everything it can to scrub that message away.

It will be interesting watch what happens now to "Jars Of Clay". It is my opinion that, while fake Christians don't mind listening to Christian it's-all-about-me music, I'm not so sure they will buy it when what they really want is the latest no-rules-let's-just-have-sex-all-the-time song release.

The current climate in Christendom (which is different than Christianity) is a constant echo of John's "They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us" (1 John 2:19).

It wouldn't surprise me if Dan Hastletine does't eventually come out the closet, or maybe one of the other members of the group.

I agree, I think this new level of depravity is the fires of refinement for the church.

It's only going to get worse Tim, and at the same time better.
