A Time to Turn
By Gary Amirault
In the 60's there was a song, I believe it was called "Turn, Turn, Turn." I did not it know at the time, but it came from the Bible. It is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
A season is set for everything, a time for every experience under heaven;
A time for being born and a time for dying,
A time for planting and a time for uprooting the planted;
A time for slaying and a time for healing,
A time for tearing down and a time for building up;
A time for weeping and a time for laughing,
A time for wailing and a time for dancing;
A time for throwing stones and a time for gathering stones,
A time for embracing and a time for shunning embraces;
A time for seeking and a time for losing,
A time for keeping and a time for discarding;
A time for silence and a time for speaking;
A time for loving and a time for hating;
A time for war and a time for peace.
In the 1990's much of the non-Roman Catholic church world has embraced a mentality that the end of the world is near. They believe they must express unity to the world, make one great last effort to bring into the church as many people as possible, even if it means joining forces with a church which worships the dead, Mary, works, bows to the Pope, the "Vicar (substitute) of Christ" etc.
A great part of the Protestant church expects to fly away any day while the rest of this world gets destroyed with physical fire. They have abandoned sound doctrine, read Christian fiction by the shelf-full, and long for God's vengeance to fall upon the ungodly. "God's people" 2000 years ago were very much in the same position as the church-at-large today. Their time and season did not bring what they expected. Neither will this time and season we live in bring to the church what it expects.
To those who have ears that can hear, eyes that can see, and feet that can walk, walk away from this great deception. Turn, Turn, Turn, your hearts to our Father, Who through the Spirit of His Son in you, will guide you through the great darkness which has fallen upon the church. It is time again to fall upon those powerful words, "This is my Beloved Son, hear ye Him!" The great majority of the shepherds of "church" have abandoned the simplicity of the "Good News." There is very little good news where the traditional church has chosen to camp. Turn, repent, and get on the road Abraham used to leave Babylon.
