Apostasy or Falling Away from the Faith" is commonly thought in Christian theology to characterize the church in its last hour before the antichrist appears and leads to God's judgment of the world. If you have been walking with the Lord in intimacy you know very well that Satan, the father of all lies is constantly throwing lies at you from the pit of hell. But God through the Holy Spirit brings us comfort and love in our cast down times. Like the apostle Paul, we then say, "I am filled with comfort, I am exceedingly joyful in all tribulation." (2 Corinthians 7:4) We do have tribulations but it is at times like these that we must get our focus away from the situation and stop fretting about it. Instead get up seek out and bring the Word of God to those who wait to be filled with the Spirit through God's Word. Stop trying to please God by planning some great sacrificial work, or raising money for a new building project or organizing a new Christian venture to help the needy. Likewise, dutifully attending Church, singing in the choir, heading church committees and beautifying the sanctuary with flowers and candles is not the answer. It seems all well because it shows our desire to worship the Lord, but it is not what the Lord expects from us during these last days. He wants us to leave the comfort of the Church sanctuary and walk, "I mean run" outside and seek out the hurting souls to bring them God's healing. Remember, we have been given all the power of heaven to console a hurting soul, someone who needs to hear that God is real and answering the Cry of the Lost.
