This morning I spotted a video, shared by one of my Christian friends on Facebook, that shows a German woman standing up for her faith in the Lord Jesus, on behalf of herself and her country, as an Imam began to chant the Islamic call to prayer in a Christian church. The righteous anger that overflowed this wonderful Godly lady is the same righteous anger that needs to be overflowing from all of us when we see and hear anti-Christ actions and words.
What I find most galling about this video is to think about the reverse situation:
Firstly, here we have an Imam INVITED into a Christian church in Speyer, Germany (the "home" of the Reformation!), to chant Islamic words. The reverse would never happen... i.e. a Christian invited into a mosque to pray and preach the Gospel. It is so sad that the Western Christian mainstream church has become so apostate that it even allows for this sort of thing to happen. It's the way that Islam operates—taking tiny little steps so that they are not noticed until it is too late and they have taken over, turning churches into mosques, infiltrating schools with Islamic teaching as the world works to oust Christian teaching from the schools, etc.
Secondly, let's say that a Christian did manage to get inside a mosque and begin to pray and preach out loud. If that Christian were not killed on the spot as an "infidel", you can be sure that he'd be quickly and very forcibly removed from the mosque. In this church, however, when a woman stands up for Jesus Christ against the infiltration of Islam into the church building (and into her country), it is SHE who is quickly and forcibly removed. Where were the other Christians in the audience assembled there? Why did they not also stand up and be counted for Christ? Why wasn't the Imam ejected from the building?
This is the apostate church of Revelation 3:14-22:
"To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.' "
We need to stop being lukewarm; we need to stand up and be counted among the fighting warriors of Jesus Christ, as this German woman did; we need to realise how far we have drifted from the Living God and return to Him and buy gold refined by fire and white garments. We need to stop using Revelation 3:20 as an evangelistic tool to the unreached and realise that God is speaking to us Christians when he says, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock...". The apostate church of this age has excluded Jesus from its midst, and we all need to be sure (individually) that we have not been sucked into that apostasy... we need to open the door and allow Jesus to come in and dine with us.
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1-2)
