Think for a moment how a man such as Martin Luther must have felt in an age of such great corruption within what was passing itself off as the Church of Jesus Christ. Here was a man who in many ways was the product of the time and circumstances into which he had been born. The Roman church was what he had known throughout his life to be the true church. Of course, today we recognize that there were always true remnant Christians holding forth outside the realm of the paganized Catholic church. To a man such as Luther, however, it seemed as though the Roman church was the genuine article...and yet, he could see that it was immensely polluted and corrupt. Unlike most of the others of his time, Luther was not content to allow abomination and heresy to go unchallenged. Ultimately, he summonsed the internal resolve and courage to make a forthright stand against the flagrant apostasy of that institution which was calling itself the Church of Jesus Christ! Yes, Martin Luther was a man of unusual courage, faith, and principle. He was willing to lay his own life and security on the line for the cause of truth. His legacy is an important part of a larger story that stands out admirably in the annals of history. It would have been so easy for this man to compromise his convictions and take the easy road in life. It is to our great fortune that Luther and others of his ilk were unwilling to sell out to the wiles and temptations of Satan. The great sacrifices and contributions that they made in their time serve to instruct and inspire those who are of similar make up and internal composition today. The reformation of old only went so far, however, and it is incumbent upon the stout of heart and sensitive of spirit today to carry that same torch forward into the future. We must not faint at the task before us. We must not grow weary in well doing, but instead, press on toward the victory that will be ours in the glorious name of Jesus Christ!
The mission of The Reformed Church Of Israel is very much multi-faceted. We recognize that like in the days of Luther, what passes for the Church of Jesus Christ today is a woefully compromised and error laden specimen. In some ways, our circumstances are vastly complicated by the fact that there are now so many divisions and distinctions within the larger sphere of professing Christianity. No longer is there one glaring apostate entity to direct our energies toward. Instead, a veritable plethora of compromised institutions exists, all of whom lay claim to the title of the Christian church. To attempt to wade into such a mass of confusion and error is truly a daunting task. At the same time, however, we realize that we are armed with an arsenal of weaponry that ultimately makes us more than equal to the assignment!
There is nothing even remotely as powerful as the truth. The snarled mass of lies that Satan has succeeded in selling to the modern church and the world around it can in no way stand up to the piercing light of truth. Those who are equipped with the full range and scope of truth possess the power to eventually prevail over the collective forces of evil. Men typically enslave themselves to the extent that they establish barriers between themselves and the truth. When these barriers are eliminated, truth will always emerge victorious over the lie. The Reformed Church Of Israel is dedicated to the truth at any cost. No institutional or other impediments to the truth will be embraced or tolerated as we seek to carry out our mission. Simply stated, we are in possession of the most potent weapon in existence...namely, the truth! Let the enemies of truth know that we will stop at nothing in our quest to propagate the same. We will marshal and wield truth as a piercing, cutting, devouring broad sword against all the forces of wickedness that have sown vile corruption throughout our nation and world. We will not sit back passively waiting for them to find us. Ours is an action oriented calling that is based upon the Biblically enunciated premise that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church! By the grace of God, we will unleash a manifestation of his power that the world has grown totally unaccustomed to. We fully expect God to move mountains on behalf of this work as we display the manner of faith that he has commanded in his holy word. Indeed, an integral component of the mission of the Reformed Church Of Israel will be to confront error and its proponents at every turn! To live for and promote truth necessitates that we be committed to challenging lies and deception wherever they might be found. Truth is inherently incompatible with the lie and there can be no arrangement of peaceful co-existence!
The Reformed Church Of Israel seeks to become a city on a hill that cannot be hid. In the process of coming out from the midst of the debilitating Babylonian system that has been allowed to grow up around us, we will endeavor to show forth an irresistible and indestructible manifestation of the comprehensive principles of God at work in the affairs of men. While the surrounding society and culture crumbles under the weight of institutionalized error and sin, we expect to be used of God to construct a model of what can be accomplished according to the will, purposes, and law of the Almighty. It is our conviction that judgement is going to be visited upon America and the world in a vivid and comprehensive manner. A cleansing and purifying period is unavoidable according to the laws of cause and effect or of sowing and reaping. The Reformed Church Of Israel will purpose to build an ark of survival in the midst of the chaos that is surely to come. We will work and exist under a mantle of faith and expectancy that the God of our fathers will honor our devotion, obedience, and commitment by extending his miraculous hand of protection over us and all that we set our hand upon to accomplish to the glory of Jesus Christ. We fully expect that God will dispatch an army of angelic host on our behalf to provide constant protection and to contend for us in the face of monumental opposition and resistance to all that we seek to accomplish.
In many ways, the artificial mechanisms that have been used to suppress truth have created what amounts to a pressure cooker effect. The truth can only be suppressed for so long...and then...the lid will inevitably blow off! Our contention is that we are at such a stage at this very moment of history. An explosion of truth is on the verge of taking place and we are committed to work relentlessly in preparation for such an occurrence. We want to be ready to ride the crest of the wave as God makes it possible for his truth to go forth like nothing we have witnessed in modern history! God uses the simple things to confound the wise, and the enemies of Christ have no idea, whatsoever, as to what is in store for them. The future, in many ways, is an exceedingly grim picture. There will most assuredly be great upheaval and destruction as God deals harshly with those who have for so long thumbed their noses at him. All this must occur, however, in order for the foundations of truth and righteousness to be re-established in the earth.
The Reformed Church Of Israel is committed to reaching out to the remnant of God who have not bowed the knee to Baal. We recognize that many are called yet few, relatively speaking, are chosen. It is our belief that God will put it upon the hearts of a certain company of individuals, selected from a diverse variety of geographical locations, to answer a specific call to assemble in pursuit of a territorial imperative. We understand that this concept represents an enormous threat to the organized forces of evil. Nevertheless, we remain committed to the determined outworking of such a vision in the midst of the true Israel people of God!
In sum, through the calculated, relentless application and utilization of systematic, comprehensive truth, the mission of the Reformed Church Of Israel is nothing less than to storm the gates of hell and turn the world upside down in the mighty name and service of Jesus Christ, the King and Redeemer of Israel!
