Can we lose our salvation ? Is Jesus Coming.. Really Soon ? This were the questions to be answered. It was too "devastating" to believe it. It was one of those things that never even occurred in the world of imagination. You know how sometimes in a meal or with friends and sometimes someone suggest something that is totally out of the blue and know its obviously not going to happen, then someone within the group comments,"The day that happens, Jesus is coming". That is excactly how it was.
Our family visited Godpa and Godma's house and we met Koko Jason (Lee) and Che che Susan there. While Dad was sitting on the piano stool, Koko Jason told Dad,"You know what happened to Ray Boltz ah ?" And Dad replied," No. What ?" "He divorced his wife of 33 years and is now living with a man (in other words, gay)!!!"Koko Jason said. I can't remember my dad's expression, but he was almost in a daze, and so was I since I had overheard the conversation and went across the room to find out more.
My dad and I have googled it up and as devastating as it is, it's true. Thus, the couple of questions in the beginning of the post. A man who wrote songs like, "Thank You", "Watch the Lamb", "I Pledge Allegiance To The Lamb", "The Perfect Tree", "The Potter's Field" and many many more songs with Spirit-inspired-lyrics, Ray Boltz has indeed shocked the world probably even more than Pastor. Mike Guglielmucci. "How pathetically sad, depressing and devastating. And that's an understatement" said one of the comments on the message boards containing the article.
I really do not know how to end this post. This news has come as a shock to me to the least. It just gets me thinking if these are really signs of Jesus' coming and that we probably can lose our salvation. Let band up and pray for the Prodigal Son who has yet to come back home after leaving, Ray Boltz.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Jesus paid for your freedom “from” sin, but He never wanted it to be used as a freedom “to” sin. We love you Ray and we are praying for you. Please come back home.
