Is Your Cross Visible?

I had a vision earlier this morning where I saw a street lined with church buildings on either side of it. On the street that was between the churches I saw people carrying crosses. They were not running but moving slowly and their backs were bent from carrying their individual crosses. Then I saw people coming out of the church buildings and begin to pelt those carrying their crosses with all kinds of things.

Several things were worthy of note here:

The crosses were visible for all to see, including those in the church buildings who were hurling objects at those carrying their crosses. It would see that this angered those who came from within the church buildings.

Those carrying their individual crosses were outside of the churches and therefore a reflection of what the church should be but is not. The verse that comes to mind is from Hebrews. Heb 13:13 Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach.

Jesus worst persecution did not come from the people one would have expected but rather from religious leaders.

Paul says in Timothy 2Ti 3:12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. It is worthy of note what the verse that follows says, 2Ti 3:13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

Evil” is ponēros, “evil in active opposition to the good,” thus, “pernicious.” “Seducers” is goēs, “a wailer, a howler, a juggler, an enchanter” (incantations used to be uttered in a kind of howl), thus, one who chants spells, a wizard, a sorcerer,” hence “a cheat.” Translate, “imposter, deceiver.” “Wax” is prokoptō, “to increase, make progress.” “Deceiving” is planaō, “to lead astray, to deceive.” Expositors comments: “Those who deceive others impair, in so doing, their sense of the distinction between truth and falsehood, and thus weaken their power of resistance to self-deceit and to imposition by others.”
Translation: But pernicious men and impostors shall progress to the worst, leading astray and being led astray.

  1. Good Word…

    “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ”

    Read within the context it those who claim to be His who are the enemies of the Cross…

    Blessings

  2. This message is very true for the times we are living in right now. I don’t understand why people in the church can be so judgmental and critical of other believers.
    All this infighting, slandering, malice, and gossip within churches is delighting the devil and making Jesus’ heart bleed. In the Lord’s eyes, we are simply persecuting Him all over again and again and again. If we can’t even keep the most important commandment of Love, all the other ritualistic stuff can’t save us!
    Thanks for the great post!

      Kevin, agree with you brother…
      I see it too, knowing the Truth but not Truly loving God or others
      If you do know Love of God for yourself how can you possibly love another?
      How can someone bless the LORD one minute curse his/her neighbor the next?
      Here is a word for today Isaiah 29:13 the worship me with their lips but there hearts are far from me….you are right Jesus’ heart is grieved
      many churches have become dens of thieves Matt 21:13, Mark 11:17, Luke 19:46
      Peace n Blessings to all who Love the LORD, amen!
