The Great Falling Away! by Milton   Green

Many Christians believe we are living in a time of   one of the greatest revivals in the history of the Church. Evangelism reports   from around the world seem to substantiate this claim. Manifestations of   supernatural gifts, signs and wonders are commonplace in a large percentage of   churches. They are widely proclaimed as being from the Lord and proof that God   is well pleased with the Church today. Ministries are expanding into mass media   evangelism which spans the globe. Evangelistic and charismatic groups are   experiencing tremendous numerical growth as new buildings can be seen springing   up and spreading out in almost every direction. All of these things would seem   to refute the remote possibility that we are now living in the time of the great   falling away of the Church: a falling away from true faith and the life-style   which God demands of His people and which is taught in scripture. Instead,   multitudes of church members say they are eagerly anticipating the return of   Christ through a secret rapture which will whisk them out of every trial and   tribulation which is obviously coming upon the world. However, when close   investigation is made of the personal lives of the church members, we find   little difference between most of their life-styles and those of the people in   the world. Divorce, adultery, homosexuality, gossip, unforgiveness, strife,   jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, and factions are as prevalent in the   churches today as they are in the world.
Almost any pastor or church   leader you talk to privately will admit that down inside he knows something is   desperately wrong. Many people wander from church to church looking for   something they know they are missing. The message of “peace and safety” being   preached cannot put an end to their inner turmoil. They discern the spiritual   emptiness in religious traditions and often fall prey to cults and sects that   draw them away from Jesus Christ and the Word of God altogether. Others are   looking for the true body of Christ which they know is supposed to be “holy and   blameless.” People easily become disillusioned when they see in the Church what   they see in the world. Churches have turned to recreation and entertainment in   an attempt to hold the people, becoming more and more like the world. Rather   than select a pastor on the basis of his spiritual maturity and understanding,   they choose a man based on his fund-raising ability and his charismatic   personality to attract people in order to increase the size of the congregation   and “build the church.” Counseling ministries flourish as the message proclaimed   by the churches is not sufficient to meet the needs of the spiritually hungry   and desperate people. Many pastors, looking for answers, have investigated other   denominations and groups (sometimes secretly for fear of being labeled disloyal   to their denomination), only to be disappointed to find the other groups have   similar spiritual problems. In the midst of this day of people searching for   answers, we should recognize that we are now experiencing what the Lord promised   would come. “‘Behold, days are coming,’ declares the Lord God, ‘when I will send   a famine on the land, not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, but rather   for hearing the words of the Lord. And people will stagger (in spiritual   darkness) from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east; they will go to   and fro to seek the word of the Lord, but they will not find it.'” Amos 8:11,   12. While this famine continues, the Lord has begun to awaken His sheep and   reveal to them the essential truths from His Word that have been overlooked and   ignored. God did not find it necessary to cooperate with the requirements of   religious systems in order to reveal His truths in the time of Jesus. That has   not changed. God has begun restoring the power and truth of the gospel today.   This is the day that will see the glory and power of God coming to earth into   His Church which will be “holy and blameless.”

Understanding where we are and where we came from – Timeline

 

John 1

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Eternal Word

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend[a] it.

John’s Witness: The True Light

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.[b]

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own,[c] and His own[d] did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The Word Becomes Flesh

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”

16 And[e] of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, butgrace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son,[f] who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

A Voice in the Wilderness

19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”

20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”

21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”

He said, “I am not.”

“Are you the Prophet?”

And he answered, “No.”

22 Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”

23 He said: “I am

‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the Lord,”’[g]

as the prophet Isaiah said.”

24 Now those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, saying, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”

26 John answered them, saying, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know.27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.”

28 These things were done in Bethabara[h] beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

The Lamb of God

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ 31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”

32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”

The First Disciples

35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”

37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?”

They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?”

39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).

40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ).42 And he brought him to Jesus.

Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah.[i] You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone).

Philip and Nathanael

43 The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”

Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!”

48 Nathanael said to Him, “How do You know me?”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”

49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”

50 Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter[j] you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
