    PROTECTION from FALLING AWAY

    by David Wilkerson


    The apostle Paul speaks of a great apostasy to come upon the

    earth in the last days. What is apostasy? It is "a rejection of truth

    once believed and proclaimed." Simply put, it is a falling away from

    Godīs truth. Paul writes of the apostasy to come: "Now, brethren,

    concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering

    together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or

    troubled, either by spirit or by word ... as though the day of Christ

    had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day

    will not come unless the falling away comes first" (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3).


    Our spiritual fathers in the New Testament church were servants

    who gave their lives to defend the gospel. From the beginning, the

    disciples and apostles preached the whole counsel of God,

    proclaiming Christ as Messiah to their dying days. The Lord

    showered his gifts and blessings on them and the church grew

    and prospered in spirit and in truth.


    Out of the roots of that early church sprang a tree with many

    branches which we call movements, denominations, organizations,

    fellowships - such as Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians,

    Lutherans, Pentecostals, Episcopalians and others. Most of these

    branches were sparked into flame by saintly servants of Christ,

    some of whom were martyred for their devotion to the pure Word of God.


    God hates the lukewarm gospel of half-truths that is now spreading

    over the globe. Jesus came to a world that was in total apostasy

    and his coming was a pure act of mercy, undeserved by anyone.

    A great harvest of souls is still to come in this modern age and

    hungry believers from every nation will recognize the voice of the

    Lord. Their awakened hearts will respond, "Lord, bring me back to

    my first love for you."


    If you have walked with the Master for a long time, you may need

    a reminder to draw close to him and receive a renewal of your first

    love, lest you "fall away" and become part of this great apostasy.

    Beloved, he is waiting to embrace you and bring you into a new

    place with him.
