“Who will Rise Up”?

“WHO will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” Psalms 94:16

The vast majority of those who fill books and pulpits in this apostate age are “evildoers.” They are hirelings which means they are not in the ministry for the Great Shepherd of the sheep, but rather for their own self-serving gain (Philippians 3:18-19; Hebrews 13:20).

Courage or cowardice? WHAT shall it be?

Paul the apostle declared:

“For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. 28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:27-28

Here this great apostle of Christ refers to the fact that he personally delivered to the Ephesian believers “ALL the counsel of God.” He then instructs the elders in Ephesus “to feed the church of God.”

Un-repentant, sin-justifying compromisers want to act like we don’t have a Bible – to deny that God, the Judge, has spoken. So these children of Satan attempt to shut down the messengers of truth! Steam roll them with God’s Word and authority saints – “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (2 Timothy 4:2) ! SMH What ever we read in the Bible is from the JUDGE and if you don’t believe that, you are “not of God” according to Christ (John 8:47).

God-fearing men of Christ-like valor have never been so rare and desperately needed as they are needed today – men who are “valiant for the truth” and willing to brave the elements of strife, railing, and persecution “for the word’s sake.” (Mark 4:17; Jeremiah 9:3)

“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.” Amos 8:11

Never has there been a day in which there is a greater need for Christ’s disciples to rise up and to preach and teach the great doctrines of Holy Scripture. In our generation, the tragic failure to teach and dispense the doctrine of Holy Writ has left a shattered, parched, and biblical illiterate people who vainly call themselves the church of Jesus. The catastrophic threat to untold souls these last few decades has been the failure of leadership to preach the Word instantly, in season and out of season (2 Timothy 4:2). No, instead they have become the prophesied last day wolves who entertain goats instead of feeding the flock of God (Matthew 7:15; 24:5, 11, 24; 2 Timothy 4:2-4).

It can only be concluded that the men who now fill the pulpits and media in America are themselves biblically illiterate. They themselves do not know the great teachings of the Bible and the stories of the men and women who truly served the LORD throughout history.

Who is it that will dig in and rise up – to dig in by eating, devouring, memorizing, meditating upon, and preaching the words of God?

“Strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:14-15

There is no light to bright and foreboding as the Word of eternal truth and to not teach it is to deprive this whole generation of souls who will left to sulk, to sit and to sink further into darkness. In former days, brave men who feared God rose up and obeyed the LORD in feeding His flock, a command to godly men of every generation.

“The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” Psalms 68:11

The need is for men who will daily search, memorize, and meditate upon the great truths of the Counsel of the LORD and to begin to teach that one, that two, and that multitude the Precepts of the Most High.

The servant Ezekiel was commanded to eat and then speak. One must eat before he can speak.

“And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to EAT, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I EAT IT; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. 4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and SPEAK WITH MY WORDS unto them.” Ezekiel 3:3-4

Only those who know the Word of God can preach the Word of God. How long shall we remain so embarrassingly shallow about the most essential relationship and subject in the Universe?

Is the LORD calling you to come closer and to go deeper? If you will answer His call, surely He would have you to obtain a King James Bible (if you don’t already have one) and to obey Him as David did – “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.” (Psalms 27:8)

As we plunge headlong into this darkest hour of history, who is it that will take upon himself the reading, studying, and diligent dispensing of the saving words of our great God?

“Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” James 1:21-25

Becoming enmeshed in God’s Word will require coming apart from the world and from worldly people. This will require being set apart to the LORD in a deeply consecrated way, setting aside the affairs of this fleeting life to seek the face of the LORD.

“Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.” Proverbs 18:1
