GCMW: We received this message from Angela via email several days ago. She asked that I share it with my readership to encourage many others who feel marginalized because they have chosen to stand with the Word of God. Be encouraged and know that the work of the Lord through GCM Watch is not in vain and that despite what the enemy says and does, the Lord will prevail in all things. And upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matt 16:18
Dear GCM Watch,
My name is Angela. I discovered your website a couple of weeks ago while researching a few things. Since then, I’ve pulled up your site almost daily to read your current articles, as well as those in your archives.
To say the least, I’m very grateful for what you stand for; namely, your insights, your uncompromising stance on the Word of God, your courage and your clarity. It’s deeply refreshing and so very encouraging to see someone speak the unadulterated Word of God today. I know that there are those out there who do, but their voices are being overpowered and overshadowed by those who do not.
I’m not exaggerating when I admit to you that when I read the Word of God being proclaimed on your site in all of its purity, I’m almost in tears. It’s like going from drinking water from a polluted river to drinking purified water; it’s that exhilarating.
I’ve been so discouraged lately; discouraged, saddened, upset and angry because of what I see in the Church. I used to think that I was being judgemental and “legalistic”, or that I was setting my standards too high when I would see the junk that’s being masqueraded as Christianity today. I used to think there was something wrong with me, that perhaps my beliefs and standards were on their way to becoming rigid and even cultic. But I now realize that none of that is true. It is because I hold the Word of God in high regard that I look at this mess and weep, that I look at what’s being paraded in front of the world and become angry.
The Lord needs voices like yours, and like other peoples’ that are crying loud and sparing not. He needs people who are in love with Him, who cling to Him and His Word, who don’t fear those who can kill the body only, but fear the One who can destroy both body and soul; He wants people who don’t care about worldly gain, but whose heart is set on eternal gain; He wants people who will proclaim and declare His Word – without fear, without fail and without want of fame.
Friend, I’m going to pray and ask our God that He supply you with strength daily, and that He provide you with an overabundance of love for Him, His Word and His people. I’m praying that He’ll supply all your needs, and that He would keep you from all harm until He accomplishes what He wills from you.
I love you in Christ.
