MORNINGTIME 2590
 
And Abimelech gat him up to mount Zalmon, he and all the people that were with him; and Abimelech took an axe in his hand, and cut down a bough from the trees, and took it, and laid it on his shoulder, and said unto the people that were with him, What ye have seen me do, make haste, and do as I have done. And all the people likewise cut down every man his bough, and followed Abimelech, and put them to the hold, and set the hold on fire upon them; so that ALL the men of the tower of Shechem DIED also, ABOUT A THOUSAND MEN AND WOMEN. Judges 9:48-49. The tower here was a strong fortified building the townspeople would run to as a last defense when the town was under attack. Sometimes there is safety in the Tower and the attackers give up and go away. Not this time. The attackers persevered until they were able to kill everyone hiding in the Tower of Safety. "THE TOWERS HAVE FALLEN, THE TOWERS HAVE FALLEN", and I'm not talking about 9/11. The Towers in America today are supposed to be the Steadfast, Biblically solid, and Gospel infused Denominations of our mainstream churches. Places where the dead and dying could go for help when their little world around them was falling apart and crashing in on them. The Church would be a safe place to get understanding of the complexities of Life, then to Victorious Face Life, and death, with no fear. But no more, those days have passed, the Safety of Solid, Biblical Preaching in the Church of America today is over. There are still a few churches still Preaching The Gospel, but very few. Apostasy has taken over and most people want their ears tickled. TV, radio, the internet, and most conferences are now packed full of False Teachers, hireling preachers, and False Prophets who will tell you everything BUT The Truth of The Gospel of Jesus Christ. People will pay to hear lies and run off those with Truth. The goats run the place and the sheep are starving. SEEK CHRIST, feed at His Table, and, Be Blessed.
