Lonely Christianity Will Result In Colossal Peril
Don’t Don’t Fight This War Alone, Dear Brother!
Building up a strong Christian community may have never been more dire than it is today.
“Going it alone” leaves you weak and vulnerable. When the inevitable collapse of the pagan systems comes, you need support.
Yes, it’s possible to provide for a family on your own. But, it will be much easier with a group of like minded people around you.
A group of fellow Christians can share their skills. Such as protection, building infrastructure, and trading goods and services.
If you are alone, you are then responsible for every skill needed to thrive if the pagan system falls apart.
A biblical local church is the best place to start building relationships. The stronger your relationships the stronger the support will be around you.
Back when I adhered to the dispensationalist view of the Bible I ignored Hebrews 10:25. The idea being that that was for the Hebrew converts only and particularly during the “great tribulation”.
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. [Hebrews 10:25 KJV]
This was obviously an error on my part back then since the Bible clearly states:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [2 Timothy 3:16 KJV]
Then there is this verse in 1 Corinthians that I must have also ignored during my dispensational days.
Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. [1 Corinthians 16:1-2 KJV]
And we can also look at the book of Acts to see the early church gathering together in fellowship.
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. [Acts 2:42 KJV]
It’s clear to me now that God’s word tells us to meet and fellowship often. I often shake my head at the hoops I had to jump through back when I was a dispensationalist. Maybe I was just lazy and looking for an excuse to avoid leaving the comfort of my home on Sunday morning.
Whatever it was is gone now. My desire is to put down roots at the church I now attend. To raise my family there. To build strong relationships in the brotherhood of Christ. Not just when times are good but also when times are bad.
Brothers, don’t sit at home, go find a biblical church and make it your command post for the war raging on around you. Be edified by your brothers in Christ. Build the relationships that are needed to weather any storm that you find upon you in the future.
We are Christ’s body. Can an eye operate without a brain? Can a finger operate without a hand? Of course not, put in the work to find the congregation nearest you that honors God’s word and declares Jesus Christ King.
