Principles to Stand On During Turmoil

The rising turmoil of contending for political authority, along with the internet, is clearly causing much confusion and anxiety to many believers.  We, as the overseers of our church body, would like to offer a reminder that “God is good, and His love endures forever,” and that “all things works for the good of those who love God, and have been called according to His purposes.”

Despite the torrent of warnings, prophecies, analysis, and opinions, we encourage you to stand on the following principles:

  1. Interpret what is happening in light of Jesus’ highest agenda – which is the preparation of His church, the purification of His bride.  This can bring a clearer understanding of God’s working in the midst of all our upheaval – and come to rest in His peace, despite any political or social outcome.
  2. Set our expectations and anticipation of what is to come on scripture, not just on the basis of anyone’s visions or revelations.  To start, we recommend Malachi 4 and Matthew 16.

In my Sunday message on 11/29, I shared a statement on the election.  That message is available at our church website here.
