FLOCKING TO THE SOFT CHURCH


dirty

PEOPLE LOVE TO FIND PEOPLE, PLACES, AND THINGS THAT CONDONE THEIR LIFESTYLE SO THEY CAN JUSTIFY THEIR ACTIONS.

In today’s “CHURCH” world this has become quite easy with the uprising of churches who have taken the STANDARD out of the WORD OF GOD.

Homosexuality is now condoned in many mainline religious institutionsBUT NOT IN THE WORD.

Sexual sin such as fornication and adultery is condoned in most churchesBUT NOT IN THE WORD.

Alcohol use and abuse is condoned in churches because the Pastors are indulgingBUT NOT IN THE WORD.

CONDONE definition:  accept and allow behavior that is morally wrong or offensive to continue, disregarding or overlooking what is illegal or objectionable.

YOU CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A “SAVED” PERSON AND A “LOST” PERSON ANY LONGER WHEN THEY SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER IN CHURCH!

The “SOFT CHURCH” is only damning the saints sitting in the seats.  We are not here to bash and beat the sinner (saint), but we are here to teach and train them to live right before God.

Jesus does not condone sin!

Jesus is not soft on sin!  

Rev. 2:4-5, Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.

Rev. 2:14 & 16,  But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.  Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Rev. 2:20&22, Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.   Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.

EPH. 5:27, He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED – DO NOT FLOCK TO THE APOSTATE CHURCH – RUN TO JESUS!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!


Happy-Birthday-to-me

March 13, 1983 at approximately 11:31am by youth pastor dragged me into the Pastors office.  He sat me down across from the desk and looked me in the eyes and said, “Spencer, you have been playing church long enough, get in or get out!”

I was shocked!

HOW DARE HE TALK TO ME THAT WAY!!

I had grown up in church.  I was in church before the week was out from my escape from the womb.  All my years I remember going to church because our family was so involved.  My dad was the Sunday School superintendent, song leader, board member, and my mom was a teacher as well.  We were always in church!  Every Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday, Thursday and most Fridays something was happening in a church environment.

BUT……

Church does not get you to heaven!

Mom & Dad cannot get you to heaven!

ONLY JESUS!!!!

On this date 34 years ago that youth pastor gave me an ultimatum, “GET IN OR GET OUT”.

Who does he think he is!!!

How dare he talk to me that way!!

IT SAVED MY LIFE…..AT 11:31AM I CONFESSED JESUS AS MY SAVIOR AND HAVE NEVER TURNED BACK.  

I have stumbled a few times, but I have never gone back to the devil’s side.

WHAT WAS YOUR NEW BIRTH DATE?

HOW AND WHO DID JESUS SEND INTO YOUR LIFE THAT BROUGHT YOU TO A DECISION?

SHARE YOUR SALVATION WITH SOMEONE TODAY!!!

John 3:3, Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Eph 2:8-9,  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Rev. 12:11a, And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony.

HONOR IS DUE…


657

GIVING HONOR WHERE HONOR IS DUE SHOWS GREAT RESPECT.

Today, I want to honor Pastor Rhonda Spencer on her BIRTHDAY!

I personally want to honor my wife for all the SACRIFICE she has given to propel the Kingdom of God.  There is always personal sacrifice if you are going to see a vision come to fruition.  IT IS NEVER FREE.

I remember taking our first pastorate back in 1990 with 7 people and each of the 7 could have been her grandparent.  She took on the responsibility of being a pastor’s wife with great dignity.  At that time I was making $10.00 a week full time and she was newly pregnant.  She took on this challenge for Jesus as a young lady and shined!!!

The next stage of her life in ministry was when I went on the road full-time as an Evangelist.  She was home for 3 years, 3 weeks a month, while I was preaching the Word.  She had 3 babies under the age of 5 and was somewhat a single mom, even though married.  What a MOM!!!  Honestly, I could never have asked for a better mother for my children.

When we progressed into the next stage of life in ministry when we were launching His Tabernacle Family Church, she willingly went to work and gave up her life’s dream to see God’s Kingdom flourish.  She worked 7 years full time sacrificing raising her babies every day.  She was selfless!  She allowed her dreams to be placed down to propel God’s passion for people.  His Tabernacle would not be where it is today without Rhonda’s sacrifice and love for people.

She is the BEST MOM, and now is a WOW grandmother (all at 29).  Rhonda is a tremendous teacher and preacher of the Word of God.  She is a dynamic writer (just completed her 3rd book).  She builds and strengthens pastor’s wives with http://www.empoweringpastorswives.com every Thursday and throughout the week.

She is my HELPMATE and my LOVER.  There are just way too many things she is to so many diverse people all over the planet.

WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE HER IN OUR LIVES AND TODAY WE HONOR YOU RHONDA AND SAY…….WE ALL LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH!!

1 Tim. 5:17, The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.

Empowering Pastors Summit with Tommy Barnett


Tommy Barnett

PASTOR TOMMY BARNETT SPOKE A POWERFUL WORD TO THE PASTORS AND LEADERS AT THE EMPOWERING PASTORS SUMMIT (www.empoweringpastorssummit.com).

How many times have you heard people say, “I am waiting on God to move?”  Know His direction is important, but once you know it, IT IS TIME TO MOVE!

GOD IS WAITING FOR US TO MOVE AND THEN THE GRACE, POWER AND PROVISION WILL BE RELEASED TO US.

The miracles in the time that Jesus walked on the planet were released when the people came to Him, not Jesus coming to them.

Heb. 4:16,  Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

WE MUST COME TO THE THRONE FIRST AND THEN THE GRACE AND MERCY ARE RELEASED!

Mark 5 – Jairus had a daughter and she was dying and there was no hope.  So he WENT to Jesus and kept his confession = release of his daughter being raised from the dead.

Mark 5 – Woman with the issue of blood.  She did not wait for Christ, she WENT to Him and received her miracle.

Matt. 6:33, But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

SEEK FIRST – GO – MOVE, and THEN……..

Faith grabs for what you cannot touch yet.  

God loves to create, provide when you reach out in faith into nothing proving He has everything.

Matt 7:8,  For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

YOUR MIRACLE IS WAITING FOR YOU, NOT YOU WAITING FOR YOUR MIRACLE!

STEP OUT IN FAITH AND WATCH THE POWER, GRACE AND PROVISION BE RELEASED IN YOUR LIFE AND MINISTRY!
