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!

SLIP-SLIDING AWAY


SlipSliding

IT IS NOT THE BIG THINGS THAT STEAL YOUR FAITH…..IT IS SUBTLE, SNEAKY, SLOW!

SO MANY ARE SLIP-SLIDIN AWAY!!!

It is so sad watching people plant poor seeds that produce death in their lives.

EACH SEED HAS DIRECT IMPACT ON YOUR NATURAL AND ETERNAL HARVEST.

“I know, I know……”

BUT REALLY……..DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

When we choose to not read or listen to the Word daily.

When we choose to not pray.

When we choose to not go to church consistently.

When we choose to remain indulging in sin knowing God said to stop.

When we choose to cut out the fellowship of the saints.

When we choose to speak words of death instead of life.

When we choose to subtract and disobey Jesus in our finances.

WE CHOOSE………OUR HARVEST!

Deut. 30:19, Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!

As a Pastor I sadly have to watch people who were once on fire for Jesus slowly slide away.  They will never be able to deny Christ.  They had supernatural experiences that validate the reality of the Living God.  Their faith was not built on the wisdom of man but upon the power of God.

SLOW…..

SNEAKY…..

OTHER PRIORITIES…..

OTHER LOVES……

OTHER PASSIONS…..

THEN THEY ARE GONE…….

Choose to sow life into your life today!  Be a person who is INTENTIONAL with your life and know that what you sow you will reap.  SOW WITH WISDOM TODAY AND CHOOSE LIFE!

STABBED IN THE BACK!


stabbed

HAVE YOU EVER HAD SOMEONE YOU LOVE GOSSIP BEHIND YOUR BACK?

IT IS LIKE SOMEONE TAKING A KNIFE AND STABBING YOU FROM BEHIND!!

Let’s be honest……we have ALL been stabbed, and we have ALL stabbed…….ouch.

Prov. 18:21, Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.  Message Bible

Gossip is so EVIL!

It is literally the job of Satan and when we gossip we are doing ministry for the underworld!

Rev. 12:10b,  For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth–the one who accuses them before our God day and night.

STOP DOING MINISTRY WITH SATAN SAINTS!!

“I wasn’t gossiping, I was just telling the truth about the person or situation.”  LIAR!

When you are not part of the problem or part of the solution and the one you are sharing with isn’t either, then it is GOSSIP AND EVIL AT ITS CORE!

GOSSIP DESTROYS PEOPLE.

Prov. 26:22, The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

IF YOU HAVE NOTHING GOOD TO SAY…….SHUT UP!

Nobody really needs to hear your opinion or thoughts on the situation.

MIND YOUR OWN STINKING BUSINESS PLEASE!

Eph. 4:29, Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouth, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

JESUS HAS CALLED US TO BE RESTORERS, NOT DESTROYERS!

Gal. 6:1, Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. 2Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. 3If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.

LET YOUR WORDS BE FILLED WITH LIFE TODAY AND NOT DEATH!

YOU NEED THE HOLY GHOST!


Holy Ghost

JESUS NEVER PLANNED FOR THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS TO LIVE WITHOUT THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THIS PLANET!

Zech 4:6,  Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.

The church at large has rejected the Holy Spirit and power because it makes them uncomfortable or because they cannot control or fully understand.  They allow Him in their churches as long as He does not show Himself too much and most do not allow the Holy Spirit to participate in their every day life.

JESUS NEVER PLANNED FOR THE BRIDE TO NOT HAVE A POWERFUL, SUPERNATURAL EMPOWERMENT BY THE HOLY GHOST!  

Jesus told the disciples to go and tarry in Jerusalem till the receive the promise of the Father (Acts 1).  They waited and on the 10th day they Spirit of God came upon them and filled them with the evidence of speaking with other tongues (Acts 2).

PETER NEVER STOOD UP AND PREACHED THE FIRST MESSAGE OF THE CHURCH WITHOUT THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  

Why do people struggle so much in their every day walk with Christ Jesus?

They are not filled with the Holy Spirit!

IF IT WAS NOT A GAME CHANGER, THEN WHY DID JESUS TELL THEM NOT TO LEAVE UNTIL THEY RECEIVED?

IF IT WAS NOT THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM FOR EVERY DAY SAINTS, THEN WHY DID JESUS SAY IF HE DID NOT LEAVE THE SPIRIT COULD NOT COME?

You need to be constantly FILLED with the Holy Spirit to live a successful life in Jesus.

I DON’T LIKE THAT TONGUE STUFF……

BLAME JESUS!

HE IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH AND HE WOULD NOT LAUNCH WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT FILLING THE DISCIPLES WITH POWER!

Ask Him right now to fill or re-fill your spirit!

2 Tim 1:6, This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you.

I FEEL DISCONNECTED


disconnected

The Word of God is so clear on how to keep your relationship with Jesus flourishing.

Acts 2:42, And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

  1. THEY WERE CONSISTENT!  Consistency is everything.  This one principle will totally change your entire life.  We are consistent to work because we know we would be fired.  We do many things that have no eternal purpose and then skip church, reading the Word, prayer and then cannot understand why we feel disconnected with Christ.  Heb. 10:25, And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
  2. THEY WERE BEING TAUGHT!  The first church was being taught the Biblical principles.  Believers today think that the one day a week Christianity is all they need.  We have a large batch of spiritually ignorant saints.  They do not know the Bible, they do not know what they believe.  They have not built up their faith and then when the devil comes they blame God.  We have Rock Solid Faith that should be FULL every single week and other classes that will teach you the Word of God.
  3. FELLOWSHIP!  The first church hung out together.  They fostered friendships that would build them in Christ.  Some of you need to ditch some of your old friends and locate new friends that will enhance your walk with Christ instead of feed the old flesh nature.
  4. BREAKING OF BREAD & PRAYER!  They celebrated Jesus together and prayed.  When was the last time you went to a prayer meeting?  When was the last time you prayed?

DISCONNECTED?

THAT CAN ONLY HAPPEN IF YOU DISCONNECT YOURSELF.

CHURCH ONCE A WEEK WILL NEVER CUT IT!  

The saints met together DAILY!

Realign your life and do what the Bible tells you if you desire to grow and fulfill God’s purpose for your life.
