JD: Paul, as I’ve been listening to you coming to my mind was what Mordecai said to Ester. For such a time as this you have shown up with these ministries and we do need them at this time do we not?
PB: Oh absolutely. You know Jimmy, one of the things we commission directly if you look at Ephesians 5:1l. Paul tells the church to not have any fellowship, or take part of, or be party to, or I would say be a member of a party of the unfruitful works of darkness. He doesn’t just stop there. He said we are also not only not to be part of them but we’re to stand against them, to reprove them and to expose them. Well as you said while ago we’re to occupy until the Lord comes. Our last marching orders are to proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ and to point people to Salvation and stand against wickedness.
Quite frankly we haven’t done the job that God has called us to do at least in by opinion over the last couple of decades. You know you look at the influence the church had when those new believers, you know Paul had only been there for about three weeks but had such an impact in their culture. The Pagans came together and accused them of trying to turn the world upside down.
You look at the influence of Christianity in Ephesus which was the epicenter of idolatry with the Temple of Diana. Christianity had such an impact in that destination site for idol worshippers that the silver smiths were complaining because their business was being so adversely affected because of the evidence of Christianity permeating the culture. You know we have 70% of the citizens of America claimed to be Christian or identify as Christian yet we can’t even figure out that there’s only two genders. You know we’re allowing men to compete in women’s sports, we have Mayors and Governors across the country issuing proclamations, celebrating LGBT pride month. Rather than two genders we now have a hundred and some odd genders and counting. I mean it’s time that the modern day men of God, the modern day prophets stand up only in the face of evil and stand against it.
JD: Dr. Paul Blair a former NFL football player and now a pastor in Oklahoma calling for modern day prophets to stand up against evil in our world.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Dr. Blair has issued a challenge for preachers and modern day prophets to stand up against evil. The apostle Paul said before his death to preach the word not fables but the word of God. This is for a time when the world is turning away from the Bible, that’s II Timothy 4:1-5.
