Here it is, plain and unvarnished. Unless I am convicted [convinced] of error by the testimony of Scripture or (since I put no trust in the unsupported authority of Pope or councils, since it is plain that they have often erred and often contradicted themselves) by manifest reasoning, I stand convicted [convinced] by the Scriptures to which I have appealed, and my conscience is taken captive by God's Word, I cannot and will not recant anything, for to act against our conscience is neither safe for us, nor open to us. On this I take my stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen.” —Herr Doktor Martin Luther; Wurms, Deutschland (Januar 6, 1521)
Above is depicted Luther testifying before the Papal Inquisition in Worms [pronounced vorms], Germany, with Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. present; disgracefully, Luther's pass of safe conduct (promise that he would not be arrested or molested on the way home) was revoked, even though it was promised him before he agreed to appear. Thankfully, some of Luther's friends and supporters (various devout German Princes and their knights*), "kidnapped" Luther on the road and spirited him to a castle for safety.
[* Where are such princes and knights today...?]
1. What do you do to stand up for Christ each day? I am not talking about meekly "saying table grace" before you have lunch in a public place. I am talking about standing up to evil in your home, work place, church, and community (see the article at this site: Occupy Till I Come). Every time that a Christian sees evil and ignores it he denies Christ. Christ would not have ignored it. We are supposed to walk even as He walked. To be ashamed of what He taught and practiced is to be ashamed of Him. To be ashamed of what our Father commanded us is to be ashamed of Him and is to deny Him.
"4He that saith, I know Him [God], and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth His Word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. 6He that saith he abideth in Him [Christ] ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked." (I John 2)
"Love" is not an emotion. Love is a volition. Love is self-sacrifice. Love is obedience. We demonstrate our love for God (if the "love" is real) by obeying Him (even as faith without works is dead; works do not add to faith; faith produces works if the faith is real). If people in the community do not know where you stand on moral issues, you deny Christ. That may hurt your feelings and you may be tempted to stop reading. But this is why Christendom is about to be overrun and destroyed—because of sterile "Christianity". That is why Judgment will begin at the House of God. Because God's people know better! and they have turned their backs on what He commanded and live as if they are ashamed of him. Militant perverts and rioting criminal aliens get whatever they want, but Christians don't even raise a whimper in protest when our nation and all that our forfathers sacrifices for us (in the Protestant Reformation and in the American Revolution) is being stolen from us and restructured to oppress us and that is why we are facing extermination. "To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not to him it is sin". Ignorant sin is still sin. Ignorant sin shall still be punished, but with fewer stripes. However, at some point in time, ignorance itself becomes sin: since God has commanded us to know His Will and Law. Therefore, after some point in time, ignorance is not an excuse, since it is wilfull negligence, and it shall not be punished with fewer stripes. Scripture tells us that the only ones that will survive the coming Wrath are the elect of God who have the Testimony* and obey the Commandments of God (Revelation 12:17; 14:12).
[* Understand: It is not a Testimony if you are ashamed of it and don't speak it and live it and stand up for it.]
2. Do you stand up and "have the back" of and defend and support others who stand up for what is right and who are attacked and persecuted for it? If other Christians stood up the enemy would back down. Those who don't stand up deny the faith and are worse than infidels; and are not Christians (or if they are, they have no honor and shall inherit shame). What does the Royal Law (Golden Rule) say? If you stood up (ever) for what is right and were persecuted for it, or if you or your family were persecuted, prosecuted, attacked, defamed, ridiculed, assaulted unjustly—would you not want someone to stand up for you and your family? Then HOW can you not stand up every time that our kinsmen so suffer? God says that if you do not, you will have judgment without mercy and if you stop your hear from the cry of those in need, He will stop His Ear from hearing you in your day of distress and calamity. You reap what you sow. Our nation is reaping what such faithless, honorless "Christians" sow on a mass scale and we will reap nothing else until people sow righteousness, truth, justice, and until we sow obedience to God. "Christians" sing a hymn for 5 minutes once a week in church (if they even go) and sing, "Jesus is Lord". Yet Christ said, "Why call ye Me 'Lord, Lord' and do not the things that I say?" If you love Me, keep My Commandments. That's what a LORD is—one Whom you obey: ALL the time, EVERYTHING that He commanded; not just the Commands that you "feel like" obeying, if and when you "feel like it". Such will hear Christ say, "depart from Me, I never knew you." This is not kindergarten. This is real life and it is for keeps and it is about to be taken from us. Turn a deaf ear to my words and you will share the same fate as those who turned a deaf ear to Jeremiah's words.
Each day is a new day. Sow righteousness NOW. The land is defiled because there is violence against all the things that God commanded—all the "Thou shalt not's" and all the "This shall thou do's". Most "Christians" don't believe God exists. If they did, they would fear and obey Him.
Read this whole article over again and let it sink in, and then also read "Occupy Till I Come".
And then Pray—God quicken my heart and mind and fill Me with Your Holy Spirit to convict me of sin, lead me into the Truth, and empower me and give me the desire and courage to obey You.
