I started reading: Tortured for Christ, weeks ago. I am now on page 41. If a man is devoid of morals and does not possess Christ in his inner man, he could probably read this book in one sitting. Otherwise the reader must find himself paused and seeking God in prayer as he contemplates all that is both stated and implied.
I have read other books that have greatly impacted my soul; The Cross and The Switchblade; The Hiding Place; Hiding in the Light, being among them, but none have driven home like this book the total depravity of man given over to a reprobate mind. Most of the time we consider mankind around us redeemable. Once in a while we may consider someone to be without redeemable qualities, but those men normally are not in positions of power over us. They are usually evil historic figures.
This book makes clear the reason that this country has always resisted in the face of evil. But, this book also causes one to wonder how men today in high places can have abandoned that resistance and perhaps have even joined forces with Christ haters of the past, and yes, with those of the present, as they are growing in their numbers. And should they continue they will surly draw more to become one with them.
My heart weeps when I think of the casualties that we will take in this battle that is now manifesting for the souls of mankind. I can understand what Paul meant when he stated:
Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. (KJV)
We brethren are in a battle that so many today do not see as our own, nor do they recognize it’s potential for disaster in the lives of many around them.
Oh God, help us to understand our own time, and what its true meaning is for us. May we not let you down in this battle dear Lord Yeshua, the Messiah, Son of the Living God. Have mercy on Your people dear Lord. Bind us together in Christ our redeemer.
