Today's Epidemic Plague
Leprosy has always been seen as a curse, something that alienates and makes one unclean and an outcast. While we don't see many traditional lepers today, our nations are filled with them.
Just as with physical leprosy, spiritual leprosy numbs you to vital forms of pain and discomfort, resulting in spiritual infection, rot, and destruction, and it is destroying the peoples of the earth. Join us for our discussion of this deadly epidemic, and we ponder how it affects each of us and how we can find healing.

The Only Hope
Our society, our whole world, is eaten up with leprosy. We are numb to spiritual discomfort and pain. We see fornication, adultery, and homosexuality, and it really doesn't bother us that much. We are not moved to action by hearing that millions of unborn babies have been and continue to be slaughtered by abortion. We aren't seriously disturbed when we find out someone is a Budhist or a Muslim. We don't come unglued when we hear a false Gospel being preached.
And this is exactly where satan wants us. Physical leprosy steals certain types of pain and discomfort from its victim, resulting in infections, rot, and even the loss of fingers and toes (since the diseased person does not awaken when a rat begins to nibble).
Spiritual leprosy steals Godly discomfort and pain from its victim, resulting in the apathy, apostasy, and the sin-sick condition we see in the church and abroad today, as spiritual rats eat away at the very fabric of our society and of our faith.
Wake up, Church! Spiritual leprosy is everywhere, and even our churches are full of lepers. We desperately need healing. Times are as they never have been in the history of mankind. And we desperately need a move of the Holy Spirit such as the world has never seen. May it begin in you and in me today.
How can we minister life to the lost when we are eaten up with spiritual disease? Today's message is a wake-up call, and a call to seek after God like never before. Help us continue to sound the trumpet, and to reach out to the lost and dying all around the world. Consider joining with us as a ministry partner today.
