Now is the Time to Stand Up and be Counted!

Updated: Mar 3

Every Face book posting, new article and media release, I have read recently is shouting out to me that our Heavenly Father is on the move, Big Time and He is calling us to experience the privilege of identifying with His Glorious and wonderful Son, Jesus.

In Matthew 10:33 Jesus said, “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”(King James Version).

This means that we can no longer attend church anonymously, not really being open and proactive about our faith.

Shockingly in the UK we have silently given away many of our rights in the name of political correctness and inclusion. Suddenly we are waking up to the fact that this country is no longer a Christian bastion of the Faith and indeed many in authority are openly hostile to the Gospel. For many years we have realised that political correctness has been biased against Christians and the agenda in the media has been to portray Christians as religious extremists, apparently more dangerous than terrorists.

We should not be surprised. Did not our Lord and Saviour Jesus prophesy that ‘A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”John 15 v20.

Suddenly Christians are being faced with a dilemma. Having been peace loving and willing to compromise for many years, burying our heads in the sand, we now begin to realise that those of us who are brave enough to poke our heads above the sand are liable to become targets in an aggressive spiritual battle.

We witness our faithful Christian brothers such as Franklin Graham, obeying the great commission to, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”Mark 16 v 15, and being falsely accused of Hate Speech and Extremism.

This is a wakeup call to every believer to stop allowing Satan to push us around and hide our light under a bushel. It is time to proudly declare the Gospel, the Good News that Jesus Christ died for every single human being, an act of sacrificial love to give us the greatest gift of all, Eternal Life and fellowship with our Father. Unless we are proud of our faith and willing to be ridiculed and persecuted for our beliefs we will never be the witnesses God has called us to be.

So let us proudly declare the Gospel message and as we find courage in the Power of the Holy Spirit we will see Revival in the UK, because He is faithful and always keeps His promises.
