Not speaking out does not make you innocent it makes you guilty.
The question still remains do you want blood on your hands?
Sitting here talking to my sister about how people take the scripture do not judge out of content. First off Tupac said, “only God can judge me” not the bible. When the bible says judge not it means don’t condemn. Matthew 7:25. Don’t speak out against what you are in yourself. No one can send you to hell only you can do that. Anyway the bible does not justify Christians not speaking out against sin. John 7:24 says judge with righteous judgment. Funny how we can pick and choose what scriptures to quote when they seem convenient to our situation but when you really love God you love His word.
Don’t use the word of God to justify mess. Don't use God's righteousness to excuse your foolishness.
Read: Ezekiel 2, 3
The Message (MSG)
17-19 "Son of man, I've made you a watchman for the family of Israel. Whenever you hear me say something, warn them for me. If I say to the wicked, 'You are going to die,' and you don't sound the alarm warning them that it's a matter of life or death, they will die and it will be your fault. I'll hold you responsible. But if you warn the wicked and they keep right on sinning anyway, they'll most certainly die for their sin, but you won't die. You'll have saved your life.
20-21 "And if the righteous turn back from living righteously and take up with evil when I step in and put them in a hard place, they'll die. If you haven't warned them, they'll die because of their sins, and none of the right things they've done will count for anything—and I'll hold you responsible. But if you warn these righteous people not to sin and they listen to you, they'll live because they took the warning—and again, you'll have saved your life."
God loves us and He wants us to show EVERYONE His love. When you really love someone you tell them the truth. Love doesn’t let someone die and go to hell. Love saves you from yourself. It was love that hurt me but helped. Love yourself and love your neighbor. However scripture clearly says when you don't speak out God will require you to suffer the penalty of others sin. Your personal righteousness means nothing. God will require your blood for theirs.
Yes God can and will judge you so will other people whether you like it or not. God holds Christians to set a standard. We are ambassadors to His kingdom. We allow or disallow His kingdom to manifest on earth. Could it be a lot of the foolishness going on in our world have something to do with His children not taking their rightful place as kingdom citizens God sends to govern His earth which He gave us.
Matthew 16:19 (NKJV)
19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed[a] in heaven.”
Things are about to get real thick. Choose ye this day who you will serve God or man. Christians are going to have to make a decision. Staying silent does not mean you don’t have a stance it means that your stance against Christ has already been made.
Joshua 24:15 (KJV)
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Could it be that the reason we are not seeing great manifestations in the church are because we are not taking our rightful place? When was the last time you saw miracles, signs and wonders in church?
In fact when was the last time you received any ministry training? I am not talking about how to preach. What about basic 101 stuff i.e. operating in the supernatural, teaching on the prophetic, how to hear the voice of God. The churches main agenda is to take the city. If I may ask a stupid question, how are you going to take a city not operating in your rightful place? We want bigger churches but we haven’t walked into a greater anointing.
You don't use people to build ministries. You use ministries to build nations.
God is coming back to the church.
The only way we are going to see our nations healed.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Notice the scriptures says if My people. My people means people who belong to Him meaning us. We need the body of Christ to take their rightful place in the kingdom so God can heal our land.
When Christians silence their voices it means a closed heaven and chaos on earth.
I leave with a prophetic word by my a great apostle. Bishop Don Meares.

There is a move of God coming back to the church. Demons will flee. Healings are coming back to the church. Blessings are coming back to your house. We must tear down the idols.
Time out for lukewarm shady Christians. Time out for religious Christians who have no relationship with Christ. Time out for folks who are Christian by title only.
