Enumclaw Policeman Tony Ryan
Where is your church located?
Of course Enumclaw Police new exactly where Sound Doctrine Church, Salt Shaker Christian Bookstore and WinePress Publishing were located …this was about picking a fight …making an accusation and protecting Athena Dean Holtz city-serving crimes.
When King Jeroboam heard what the man of God cried out against the altar at Bethel, he stretched out his hand from the altar and said, “Seize him!” But the hand he stretched out toward the man shriveled up, so that he could not pull it back. (1 Kings 13:4 )
“Where is your church located?” – Enumclaw Police Tony Ryan, along with Enumclaw Detective Grant McCall worked with Athena Dean Holtz’s hate crime.
Such toleration of Jezebels will not go unpunished. A “bed of suffering” is prepared by God for those who do not repent of such sins.
Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. (Revelation 2:20-22)
Very often God will give a sample of the judgment to come with intense suffering. Unfortunately, like most, they try to steal forgiveness for their sins from a Holy God. They call out for a wide gate and road and when the suffering diminishes they embrace a lie. (Matthew 7:13)
Just as the sufferer below was healed, he failed to repent and went to church (temple) unforgiven in his sins. Therefore “something worse” is being prepared by God because the offered mercy of Jesus did not lead to repentance.
Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.” (John 5:14)
The small sufferings happening to those who supported Athena Dean Holtz are but a warning of big, bad things to come.
After all, everyone knows that there is no forgiveness without repentance and no truth in claiming forgiveness if not matched by repentance.
They went out and preached that people should repent. (Mark 6:12)
There are, of course, lots of religious folks who will whisper to you, peace peace when there is no peace.
They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. (Jeremiah 8:11)
So, where is your church located?
