Sifting Wheat

Sifting Wheat

“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
~Luke 22:21-32

Things haven’t changed that much in the past 2000 years.  Jesus warned Simon Peter, and prayed for Simon Peter.  He could be saying it to me … or you.

It is very clear to me, we are being thrown into the air like grains of wheat.  As our culture’s reliance on Christianity and the Bible continues to weaken we can expect the intensity of the sifting to increase.  The cloud of lies, the chaff, will thicken.  But the grains of truth are there, settling out as the lies are blown away.

I need you to help IFA as we work to educate, warn, exhort and even chastise the body of Christ here in the great state of Illinois.  It is vital that we recognize Satan’s tactics and turn away from the lies he is trying to sell us.  We need to work together for the sake of the gospel truth of Jesus Christ.

Email reminds me of chaff.  I’m throwing this message to almost twenty thousand of our subscribers, believing that there are enough “grains” to carry us to victory by the end of the month.
