The Holocaust: A Foreshadow and Fulfillment of Prophecy – Joel - https://www.christianevidence.net/2023/02/the-holocaust-foreshadow-and.html
Foreshadowing in the Bible
The Bible is filled with numerous instances where past events, people, and places offer glimpses into future events. This technique, commonly known as foreshadowing, is a prominent feature throughout the Bible. For instance, the story of Joseph and his dreams foreshadows his rise to power in Egypt, while the Passover meal anticipates the sacrifice of Jesus. These prophetic allusions serve as compelling evidence of God’s existence and His active involvement in shaping human history.
The Holocaust and the Tribulation Period
One example of foreshadowing that appears to be happening in modern times is the Holocaust, which can be seen as a type that foreshadows the future Tribulation period. During World War II, the Nazi regime systematically murdered approximately six million Jews in one of the darkest periods in human history. This event is reminiscent of the future Tribulation period, which the Bible prophesies will be a time of great suffering, persecution, and turmoil.
Parallels between Hitler and the Antichrist
Interestingly, there are many parallels between Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust and the Antichrist and the Tribulation period. The following are 20 chilling parallels:
1. The Antichrist will emerge from a revived Roman Empire, which was located in Europe (Dan. 7:7-8, 24-25; Rev. 13:1-2). Hitler was of European descent and attempted to revive the Roman Empire through the expansionist policies of his Nazi regime.
2. The Antichrist will rise to power from relative obscurity through diplomacy and flattery (Dan. 8:23-25; Rev. 6:2; Rev. 13:11-12). Before becoming the leader of the Nazi party, Hitler was a relatively unknown figure in German politics. He was a failed artist and had been involved in various unsuccessful political movements before joining the Nazi party in 1919. However, through his charisma, strong oratory skills, and the manipulation of the political environment of the time, he was able to rise to power and become the leader of Germany.
3. The Antichrist will rise to power during a time of global instability and crisis (Mat. 24:6-8; Luk. 21:25-26). Hitler rose to power amidst the Great Depression and political upheaval in Germany following World War I. The Treaty of Versailles had imposed heavy reparations and restrictions on Germany, causing widespread economic and political turmoil.
4. The Antichrist will establish a one-world government and religion (Rev. 13:7-8). Hitler’s Nazi regime sought to establish a “New Order” and control all of Europe and eventually the world. Hitler also sought to eliminate all religions except for his own Nazi ideology, which he believed should be the only belief system allowed in Germany.
5. The Antichrist will seek to change times and laws (Dan. 7:25). Hitler and the Nazi party implemented a number of changes to German law and culture, including the suppression of free speech, the persecution of minority groups, and the establishment of their own ideology as the dominant belief system.
6. The Antichrist will be associated with a false peace (Dan. 8:25). Hitler famously promised peace in Europe in the lead-up to World War II, but his actions led to one of the deadliest conflicts in human history.
7. The Antichrist will cause two-thirds of the Jews to perish during the Tribulation (Zech. 13:8-9), as well as persecute and kill believers (Rev. 13:7). Hitler’s genocidal campaign against the Jews resulted in the systematic murder of an estimated two-thirds of the Jewish population in Europe, and he also persecuted and killed millions of Christians who opposed his regime.
8. The Antichrist will make a covenant with many for seven years, but he will break the covenant in the middle of that seven-year period (Dan. 9:27). Hitler made the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact with the Soviet Union in 1939, but he broke it in 1941 when he invaded the Soviet Union.
9. The Antichrist will have a mark or a number that people must receive to buy or sell (Rev. 13:16-18). Hitler required Jews to wear a yellow star as a means of identification, and he also tattooed numbers on the arms of prisoners in concentration camps.
10. The Antichrist will be associated with the number 666 (Rev. 13:18). Hitler’s full name, Adolf Hitler, has the numerical value of 666 in English gematria when each letter is assigned a number from 1 to 26 (A=1, B=2, C=3, and so on) and added together.
11. The Antichrist will perform signs and wonders to deceive people (2 Thes. 2:9; Rev. 13:13-14). Hitler was known for his use of propaganda and staged events, such as the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, to create a positive image of Nazi Germany and gain support for his regime.
12. The Antichrist will also have a false prophet who will perform miracles to deceive people and promote his reign (Rev. 13:11-14). Hitler had Joseph Goebbels, his propaganda minister, who was known for his skillful manipulation of the masses through speeches, media, and other forms of propaganda. Goebbels created the führer myth and orchestrated a pseudo-religious worship of Hitler as the savior of Germany.
13. The Antichrist will be a charismatic and persuasive speaker with a fierce countenance (Dan. 8:23; Rev. 13:5-6). Hitler was known for his powerful speeches and charismatic leadership style, which allowed him to sway crowds and win over supporters with his fierce countenance, including his signature angry scowl and piercing gaze.
14. The Antichrist will be revered as the messiah or savior of the world by many people and will exalt himself above every god (2 Thes. 2:3-4; Dan. 11:36; Rev. 13:3-6, 14). Hitler saw himself as a kind of messianic figure who could restore Germany to its former glory, and he inspired a cult-like devotion among his followers who viewed him as such. He often spoke of his own greatness and the superiority of the Aryan race.
15. The Antichrist will speak blasphemies against God (Rev. 13:6). Hitler spoke blasphemously about God and claimed that he was doing God’s work, even as he committed atrocities and crimes against humanity.
16. The Antichrist will be characterized by satanic influence (2 Thes. 2:9; Rev. 13:2). Hitler and the Nazis used occult symbols and practices, such as the swastika and runic symbols, to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation, contributing to their ability to maintain power. Hitler had a fascination with the occult and reportedly dabbled in mysticism and esotericism.
17. The Antichrist will be a skilled military leader (Rev. 6:2, 19:11-16). Hitler was known for his military ambitions and strategic prowess, leading Germany into war and spearheading the Nazi regime’s genocidal campaigns.
18. The Antichrist will show no regard for the desires of women (Dan. 11:37). Hitler was known for his mistreatment of women, including his former lover and later wife, Eva Braun.
19. The Antichrist and False Prophet’s reign will culminate in a solitary and inglorious end against the forces of God (Rev. 19:19-20; Dan. 7:11). Hitler’s reign ended with his defeat by the Allied powers in World War II, which included many Christian nations. He died by suicide in a bunker without any allies to support him. The next day Goebbels did the same, loyal to his leader until the end.
20. The Tribulation period will last for a duration of seven years, with the latter half or “Great Tribulation” marked by increasing chaos and suffering (Dan. 9:27; Mat. 24:21-22; Rev. 7:14). The Holocaust is often associated with a duration of seven years, with some scholars identifying 1938 as the beginning of the Holocaust because that was the year when the Nazi regime implemented its policy of persecution against Jews on a large scale. The period from 1941 to 1945 is also significant due to the escalating brutality and scale of the genocide.
Ezekiel’s Vision of Dry Bones
The Holocaust was a tragic event, but it was also a necessary step in the fulfillment of God’s plan. In the book of Ezekiel, a vision of dry bones coming back to life symbolizes the restoration of the Jewish people to their homeland:
“Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ Therefore, prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.” (Ezekiel 37:11-12)
According to many dispensational teachers, the vision represents the Jews’ hopeless condition during the Diaspora, with Hitler’s Holocaust exacerbating their plight. The Holocaust accelerated the establishment of a Jewish state by highlighting the need for a Jewish homeland, increasing international support, and spurring Jewish immigration to Palestine. The reestablishment of Israel on May 14, 1948, shortly after the Holocaust, confirms the accuracy of the prophecy.
The vision also includes the Jewish people emerging as an “exceedingly great army” (Ezek. 37:10), which has become a reality with the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.) becoming the superior military in the Middle East due to ongoing conflict with Arab nations.
The Holocaust stands as a compelling evidence for the existence of God. The accuracy of God’s prophetic vision in Ezekiel’s prophecy, and the chilling parallels between the Holocaust and the predicted Tribulation period, attest to the divine inspiration of the Bible and the reality of God’s plan for the future.
The Holocaust is also a solemn reminder of the devastating events that will take place during the future Tribulation period as warned in the Bible. If you haven’t yet repented of your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, it’s crucial to do so now in order to escape the coming judgment (Luk. 21:36).
The Absence of The Rapture—And Related Topics—From Our Churches Today, Is A Great Tragedy! – By Jan Markell - https://harbingersdaily.com/the-absence-of-the-rapture-and-related-topics-from-our-churches-today-is-a-great-tragedy/
I recently read a passionate article by Jonathan Brentner on the divorce of Rapture theology from the gospel and from pulpits. I so resonated with the main points he made. The absence of this topic—and related topics—from our churches today, is a great tragedy!
When Rapture discussion ended some thirty years ago in the church and elsewhere, so did discussion of the Millennium, Israel’s key end-time role, the trend toward the Tribulation, the building of the third temple in Jerusalem, the prominence of end-time deception, the rush to a cashless society and Central Bank Digital Currency, and so much more!
It became almost impossible to understand the times from a biblical and prophetic perspective! And right at a time when people began asking earnest questions as they observe the turmoil of our times.
I am taking a few talking points from the Brentner article below:
Somewhere in the past, a tragic divorce occurred; theologians decided we must separate the return of Jesus for His church from the proclamation of the gospel. The results of this untimely divorce have led to a dearth of understanding among believers regarding Jesus’ appearing and the joyful anticipation that comes with such awareness.
Confused believers hear that they will surely die rather than meet Jesus in the air, which directly contradicts the New Testament in passages such as 1 Corinthians 15:51 and 1 Thessalonians 4:17. The Apostle Paul believed there would be many saints alive at the time of the Rapture, but many preachers today disagree with him on this matter.
The divorce of the Rapture from the gospel has resulted in a near blackout of teaching about our “blessed hope” in churches today. This negatively impacts new believers as well as seasoned saints as it leaves them ill-prepared to live in a fear-ridden society because such teaching provides no prophetic context into which they can place the violence and lawlessness of our day or the push for a New World Order.
The new converts in Thessalonica were so fixated on their soon departure from the earth that when some in their midst died, they grieved unnecessarily thinking they would miss out on the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:13-19). In response, Paul emphasized the primary place of the “dead in Christ” during the rapture telling his converts that Jesus would resurrect them first at His appearing (4:16).
Another sorrowful result of this divorce is this: It takes the eyes of believers away from their ultimate hope at a time when they need such a focus. Instead, their eyes remain focused on earthly aspirations.
Very few pastors talk about what happens at the moment Jesus returns for His church (1 Cor. 15:51-55; Phil. 3:20-21; 1 Thess. 4:16-17). Even those that believe these things never ever mention the believers’ hope of immortal bodies for fear that talking about the Rapture might hurt attendance.
As I wrote in a previous article, What Happened to My Church? someone made a conscious decision some 30-40 years ago that we should have a “new way of doing church”, although many members and attendees agreed there was nothing wrong with old ways of doing church. Terms began being used like “purpose-driven,” “seeker-sensitive,” “church-growth movement,” “postmodernism”, “Emergent”, and more.
Joel Osteen and his fellow travelers began telling us we could have our best life now as Christians. Who would want to long for His appearing with that in mind?
People started to hear about love, unity and tolerance. We must be known for what we agree on, not what we disagree on. Everything and everyone must be accepted. Aberrations must be accepted. People loved having their ears tickled. They would be encouraged to “feel good” and have their self-esteem built up. Sound doctrine was being set aside.
The saving of souls was being set aside for the entertainment factor and social justice causes. It seemed that many in the church no longer cared that so many were on their way to hell! What an offensive, intolerant thought. But clearly sound doctrine will separate and divide so we must tread lightly in that area. Relevant issues have vanished from most pulpits.
Here in 2023, all of this would be called “wokism”! And a marvelous cure for wokism would be a focus on the fact that the King is coming—perhaps today. Pulpits that are focusing on this glorious good news, are growing exponentially, and don’t have to worry about church growth!

A Rapture Viewpoint: The Lord Will Not Call His Church from Heaven - By Ron Ferguson - https://www.raptureready.com/2023/02/28/a-rapture-viewpoint-by-ron-ferguson/
The Lord Will Not Call His Church from Heaven
Not really. He will not call from heaven for the saints to go home. He opens the door in heaven according to Revelation 4:1, and there is a cry, “Come up here!” It is one of the joys of scripture when we compare verses.
Not to do so gives only part of the picture, or even worse, the wrong picture.
Look at it this way. You have been invited to a very special event by the President; well, “a President, any President” (so you don’t go thinking of Joe Biden). You are told a vehicle will pick you up at 7 P.M. You wait expectantly, and the vehicle arrives but with one twist. The driver is actually the President, who is collecting you himself.
That is how the Rapture will be. We look at the opening words of 1Thessalonians 4:16 “For the Lord Himself will descend…” That is, “for the Lord HIMSELF will descend.”
There will be nothing impersonal about the Rapture, for it is the Lord HIMSELF who is coming. For what purpose is He coming?
Is it to call His Church to glory? Yes, mostly it is, but let us put it better. It is to TAKE home His Church to glory. He, HIMSELF, will TAKE to HIMSELF!
I think as we examine the Rapture passages, we often focus on the events and how they will happen, more focusing on the mechanics of the event. It is possible to miss the personal element.
The Rapture will be such a momentous happening – maybe the greatest in the history of the world – and the awe and power of it do occupy our minds.
Do you like being swept along in the crowd? Well, it is very impersonal, isn’t it? And we can get lost as well. Sometimes we may think the Rapture is like that, with billions of souls all being caught up together in one mass migration from earth to heaven.
But you know what? I really do not think the Rapture will be like that at all. When the Lord saved you, there was a transaction just between God and you when your life was changed forever and you became a child of God on this earth, a VERY personal transaction. It was so personal, so one-to-one.
In the Rapture, I do believe there will be an interaction, one-to-one, between the Lord and you. Yes, you are caught up with the multitude, but you are caught up “individually” by the Lord. That is the marvelous thing about God. His divine attributes allow Him to deal with the multitude but with the individual at the same time.
When Peter was sinking in the sea, the Lord miraculously lifted him out of the sea, and he was taken by the Lord to the boat. The sea in scripture, especially in prophecy, means the nations of the world (more the Gentile nations). Peter was, IN TYPE, taken out of the world and placed with the Lord’s people in the boat.
The Rapture will be like that. We all will be taken out of the world by the Lord HIMSELF, and then we’ll be found with God’s people in the presence of the Lord. What I am saying is that while the Lord Jesus comes for the universal Church, He is coming for each of us individually, and that will be our experience. He comes for me. He comes for you.
Heaven will not be an impersonal place. We will never be alone. Shy people tend to hold back and become obscured in the crowd. It will not be like that. The Lord Jesus Christ will be the center and focus of heaven, and I think it will be the Lord and me. That is not selfish. It will be the Lord and you. He will relate to ALL His children.
SO… when the Rapture happens, the Lord Himself comes for YOU. He does not leave it to another. He comes Himself. Are you thrilled about that prospect? We ought to be. I think there is a great sadness some Christians have, and they don’t know they have it! They don’t accept the Rapture, or they hold to the Apostles’ Creed that says Jesus will come back to judge the living and the dead, with no reference to the Rapture whatsoever. The Rapture is the blessed hope. It gives us hope in a decaying world. Churches for centuries have failed the people by dismissing the Rapture. They have cut a whole section out of people’s lives.
I have people write to me sometimes to tell me that they can’t get their pastors to speak on the Rapture or anything dealing with prophecy. That is so sad and so neglecting of the word.
It is bad stewardship. Very bad stewardship!
Here is a poem I wrote this morning at 5 A.M. when I was doing this message (could not sleep).
HE COMES FOR ME – THE BLESSED HOPE – HE COMES FOR ME
By Jesus Christ, my soul is owned.
Lift up your eyes to God enthroned.
I come to Him as his dear child,
Now spotless white, but once defiled.
To his presence, the door is mine;
Communion sweet that’s so divine.
To You my eyes are lifted up,
Away from earth that is corrupt.
We wait for Him to shout the call;
To call the dead to stand up tall;
To change us all before His face;
The ones who have been saved by grace.
He comes for me, to take me where
All is lovely and all is fair.
The Lord Himself will come for me.
Then His glorious face I’ll see.
O, come, Lord Jesus, come to take
Your precious Bride for your Name’s sake.
The blesse’d hope The Rapture is,
The blood-bought reward that is His.
R E Ferguson 12 February 2023 8-8-8-8
Revelation 22:20 “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”
2 Timothy 4:8 (AV) “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.”
Army Chief Warns Conflict with China Will Result In Strikes On US Mainland – PNW Staff - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5931
Speaking at a recent event at the American Enterprise Institute, Christine Wormuth, Secretary of the Army, outlined the potential risks facing the U.S. homeland in the event of conflict with China. She explained that the Chinese military could launch kinetic and non-kinetic attacks, including cyberattacks on power grids and pipelines, in an attempt to erode support for any conflict.
Lt. Gen. Charles Flynn, Commander of U.S. Army Pacific, urged that American forces must be prepared and should accelerate their preparations, emphasizing that 2023 is an important year to create "enduring advantage." He stated that the U.S. military is ready to respond to any threat that may arise and urged his forces to position themselves strategically to be ready to respond should the situation escalate beyond control.
Tensions have been rapidly escalating between China and the United States as experts warn that the two superpowers may be on a collision course towards war. In November 2021, Chinese dictator Xi Jinping ordered his troops to prepare for war and declared unifying Taiwan with mainland China "must be achieved". Most experts predict that Beijing is "all but guaranteed" to attack Taiwan - it is just a matter of when.
Such a conflict would cut off U.S. access to world-leading semiconductors and other critical components manufactured in Taiwan. Not to mention the numerous pharmaceutical and consumer products we already rely upon China directly for. U.S. supplies of many products would soon run low, shutting down many businesses who rely on just in time inventory. Rationing, unemployment and inflation are all sure to follow.
Many US Department of Defense officials believe China is watching the war between Russia and Ukraine with great interest to learn how to avoid a similar situation and will aim to "hit Taiwan hard from the start" and "sever them from the outside world." Unlike Ukraine, Taiwan would be cut off from all aid and for that reason some believe the only way Taiwan could survive such an assault is to prepare for that invasion now with a massive arms build up.
China has also taken note of how the provision of military hardware to Kyiv has depleted American stocks of some key military systems. Rebuilding them could take years. Yet the war in Ukraine is relatively small-scale compared with the likely demands of a major war in the Indo-Pacific. China controls most of the shipping lanes and getting US supplies to the area would be extremely difficult.
The situation has prompted NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to warn that "what is happening in Europe today could happen in East Asia tomorrow." China regards the self-governing island as part of its territory and has vowed to reunite it with the mainland - by force if necessary. This has led to fears that a potential invasion would force the US to either abandon the island or face full-scale war with China.
In preparation for such a conflict, the United States has plans to deploy between 100 to 200 troops to Taiwan as well as expanding it's presence in the Philippines. The Philippines have announced a new agreement that will allow America to expand its military presence in the Southeast Asian nation, providing a new front to bolster deterrence against China. The agreement will also provide for conducting joint maritime patrols with the Philippines. Cooperation from the Philippines would be crucial in the event of a conflict with China, given its proximity to Taiwan and surrounding waters.
Although the US maintains a powerful advantage in aircraft carriers, with 11 to China's three, Republican Mike McCaul said the odds of conflict with China over Taiwan are "very high." Gen. Mike Minihan, head of the US Air Mobility Command, wrote in a memo that "My gut tells me we will fight in 2025."
To prepare for the fight, Minihan calls for the creation of a "fortified, ready, integrated, and agile Joint Force Maneuver Team ready to fight and win inside the first island chain." The memo also sheds light on a capability the US is considering for possible conflict with China: drone swarms.
Up until recently it was primarily Russia that was attacking Ukraine with Iranian made drones but now Ukraine is launching drone attacks of it's own. Clearly the type of battles being fought is changing rapidly and just as the US is expanding it's drone capabilities, there have been growing concerns that China has developed drone swarms that could evade aircraft carrier defenses and overwhelm it with drone strikes.
Last week, Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro raised the alarm that China's fleet was now larger than the US's, with around 340 ships compared to the US's less than 300 ships. Del Toro also claimed that China plans to field a fleet of 440 ships by 2030, far surpassing the Pentagon's goal to have 350 manned ships by 2045.
Although the US Navy may have a powerful advantage in aircraft carriers, with 11 to China's three, experts warn that in a full-scale naval war, the bigger overall fleet usually has a decisive advantage. Republican Mike McCaul said the odds of conflict with China over Taiwan are "very high." He believes that if China fails to take control of Taiwan bloodlessly, then "they are going to look at a military invasion, in my judgment."
Daily Jot: WHO’s your daddy? - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
If there ever was an example of what not to do to save lives, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) dictums on COVID prevention and treatment is the poster child. So-called “vaccines” that didn’t work, mandated hospital protocols that killed more people than they saved, quarantining healthy people for the first time in history all point to a failed effort that left millions of deaths in its wake and ruined many more lives. Now the Biden Administration wants this threat to humanity locked down in an unconstitutional agreement to give WHO control over our lives forever. If ever there were a time to stand up and resist, it is now. No unelected foreign entity should ever have sovereignty over the US. This is treason.
The agreement in question is the WHO CA+ that gives WHO authority to direct the world response to pandemics and other health-related matters. The preamble to the agreement states: “In recognition of the catastrophic failure of the international community in showing solidarity and equity in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the World Health Assembly convened a second special session in December 2021, where it established an Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) open to all Member States and Associate Members (and regional economic integration organizations as appropriate) to draft and negotiate a WHO convention, agreement or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response…”
First, it admits the failure of the international community to address COVID, but it was the WHO directives that the world followed. This is double-speak. Some countries recognized the deadly folly of WHO and didn’t go along with it. So now WHO and the Biden Administration want to force countries to comply with an international agreement. Interesting, the double-speak continues with the first affirmation of goals in the document, which says, “Reaffirming the principle of sovereignty of States Parties in addressing public health matters, notably pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and health systems recovery.” There is no sovereignty when a nation gives up its rights to an international body. WHO are they fooling? This is a global system that is very similar to the prophecies in Revelation about the Beast empire.
Revelation 13:7 says, “And it was given unto him (the Beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” Other than military force, there is no greater power than a hold on peoples’ healthcare. This grip can extend to travel, food, housing, civil rights and more if people do not comply with the mandates. We saw it first-hand with COVID where people were denied travel, access to restaurants, even were not allowed to work if they were not vaccinated with an unproven, ineffective, and unsafe “vaccine” that is now causing thousands of deaths and health problems. Biden must be stopped in this unconstitutional abdication of sovereignty. WHO’s your daddy? God or man?
Daily Devotion: You Make a Difference - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it. —1 Corinthians 12:27
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/you-make-a-difference/ - Listen
Every person in the church has an effect on it, for better or for worse.
If you are strong spiritually, then you build up the church a little more. If you are weak spiritually, you weaken it a little more. If you allow God to use you to touch lives, you help the church a little more. And if you’re compromising spiritually, you weaken it a little more. Every person has an effect.
Writing to the church in Corinth, the apostle Paul said, “If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad” (1 Corinthians 12:26 NLT).
But Paul also reproved this church because they were boasting about bringing in someone who claimed to be a believer but was living immorally. They were proud of how tolerant they were.
Paul told them, “You are so proud of yourselves, but you should be mourning in sorrow and shame. And you should remove this man from your fellowship” (1 Corinthians 5:2 NLT).
You matter in the church. Every person lifting their voice in worship matters. Every gift in the offering matters. And every act we do outside the church matters. If you’re a Christian, then you are an important part of the body of Christ.
We need to get rid of this me-first, what’s-in-it-for-me mindset and start thinking biblically. We need to start asking what we can do to help others and serve others. We need to ask how we can learn to resolve conflicts and maintain the unity that is in the church.
Instead of approaching church like a consumer looking to simply get in and get out every weekend, come in and use the gifts that God has given you.
It can change your life, and it can certainly change the way you see the church.
