When the Righteous are in Authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. Proverbs 29:2. Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the Law, HAPPY IS HE. Proverbs 29:18. When the American church gets its eyes off of Preaching the Gospel and goes for easy, simple, fluffy little messages that offend no one and adds nothing towards the Growth of Christians, the people lose sight of the Gospel and its Eternal Plan to condemn sin and uplift Christ, only to fall into silly little socially sidetracked go nowhere issues. It's much easier to get people whipped up on "YA, someone oughta do something about that, that's just not right", and not get their eyes on, "Wow, I didn't understand the depth the depravity of man could go to, Lord help ME, I'm a mess". Churches don't grow when the PREACHER tells the congregation they're in trouble and on their way to Hell. So, they default back to "feel good, go nowhere" sermons everyone likes. On the other hand, churches DO Grow when the Preacher Preaches Christ AND THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTS SINNERS OF THEIR SINS, AND THEY FALL ON THEIR FACES IN ANGUISH UNTO REPENTANCE. A Godly, Growing Church may, or may not, be growing in numbers, but it WILL be in Personal Spiritual Growth in the Lord. YOUR GROWTH IS TOTALLY UP TO YOU, you can have as much, or as little Growth as you want. And with Growth comes Godly Vision for the future. When you see Life through the Eyes of Christ, you'll see clearly right straight into Eternity. Do you want a Goal to strive for? Just look at Christ, He IS the past, present AND future all in One, and He'll show you things you've never even dreamed of, and it's all GOoD Stuff. "When the Righteous, (when Christ is) in Authority, the people Rejoice": and have a Glorious Vision of and for, the Future. "And it doesn't get any better than that ". Look at Christ, and EVERYTHING will come into crystal clear focus, and with that, you will forever, Be Blessed.
