The beast will hate the whore…

I’ve just been watching a video about China taking crosses down from the buildings they call ‘churches’. Now, we all know that anything in the world used as a gathering place for ‘worship’ is normally known as a church.

Those of us who are Biblically well-read know that this is false. The church is the gathering of Christians throughout the world who make up the temple, of whom the Bible refers to as ‘living stones’. So if we’re a building, then we are God’s building. We are certainly not a pile of bricks and mortar!

Anyway, the video progressed, and this is the Scripture which hit me immediately:

“And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” (Revelation 17:16).

The beast? The ten horns? Horn is sometimes used for the word ‘strength’ in the Bible. I’d love Mike Ratliff to do an expose on that subject! Meanwhile, the church of Christ is not being destroyed, folks. Come on, now. Remember what Jesus said: “Upon this Rock, I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall NOT prevail against it. (Emphasis mine!)

All right? Hell shall NOT prevail against the church of Christ. So blow Satan away with that one whenever you have to. And stand with that Scripture if you hear people saying : “What happened,” or “What’s happening to Christianity?”

Nothing’s happening to it! God knows who are His, and He will be with us until the end of this age.

Amen?

    That is the real truth. God is not waiting for sin to get so bad he can come back. God is waiting on his church to grow into him. Love this truth. Thank you for posting.

    Much love Tom

    The only thing I hope is that we are already in the days of shortening our Saviour talked about, Tom. No, what you speak of has already been done once. That was a scene of judgement, when God was sorry He had made mankind. The time of Christ’s return holds a promise, that the days of great evil will be shortened, or no one will survive them. I keep asking Him to come back.
