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!

THE SEED IS WORKING!


Germinating beans

WHEN THAT SEED IS PLANTED IN THE GROUND YOU CANNOT SEE IT WORKING (unless you dig it up every 24 hours, and then you would kill it) BUT IT IS GROWING THE MIRACLE.

2 Cor. 4:18, So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. AMP

Mark 4:26-29, And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, 27 and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. 28 For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. 29 But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”

JESUS WAS THE SEED OF GOD FOR US TO BE SAVED FROM OUR SINS.

John 19:30, When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

When Jesus said this you have to know that Satan and his crew were cheering and shouting in pride that they killed the Messiah.  The Son of God is DEAD!  Hell claimed their victory because the SEED WENT INTO THE GROUND.

John 12:24, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

WHAT SATAN WISHED HE COULD HAVE CHANGED WAS THE DEATH OF JESUS!  Because while it looked like the seed was dead, HE WAS VERY MUCH ALIVE AND GROWING!

Jesus released Abraham’s Bosom, took the keys of death and hell, and made an open show of Satan all while still in the ground.

BUT ON THAT THIRD DAY THE MIRACLE MANIFESTED INTO HARVEST FOR HEAVEN.

Even though you cannot see your miracle working – FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH and know – IT IS ALMOST THE 3RD DAY!!!

TRUTH BENDS FACTS.

Satan’s Draw


satan

PEOPLE GET GENUINELY SAVED, AND THEN THEY GENUINELY WALK AWAY!

WHY?

There is not a middle of the fence.

There is no living on both sides.

Jesus did not plan this to be an experience, but a NEW LIFE!

We cannot have a true conversion and then think that we can continue to live in the world.  There comes a decision that many have never made so they slide back into the slop they came out of.

SOME OF YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOME DECISIONS…..

Satan’s draw is the love of this world and pleasures.

Satan’s draw is to get you to believe that you can live a DOUBLE LIFE and still go to heaven.

THESE ARE LIES!

You cannot live both sides of the fence!

Jesus didn’t come to half save you. He did not come just to get part of you.  He did not plan for you to live this Satanic Double Life that will slowly suck you back into your old lifesyle and death.

1 John 2:15-17,  Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity. MSG

On March 13th 1983 my youth pastor dragged me into the Pastor’s office and looked me in the face and said, “Spencer, your playing games, GET IN OR GET OUT”.

That is kind of extreme isn’t it?

IS IT?

HE DIED TO PURCHASE US BACK FROM DEATH – SHOULD HE EXPECT HALF OR WHOLE?

YOU’RE NOT POPULAR ANYMORE!


tolerance

PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHEN YOU ARE LIKE THEM AND STAND FOR NOTHING!

We all want to be popular and accepted by the people around us, but that ends quickly for most when they take a different stand than what is popular.  

This is a new experience for most Christians in America and the simple fact is….it will be escalating.

Most American Christians live the same type of lifestyle the world does, so the world accepts and embraces them, but there is a great divide when you give your life to Christ.  As Princes & Princesses we are no longer of this world, we are not the same, we do not live like the world.

THIS GENERATION WILL REJECT AND HAVE HATRED TOWARD YOU!

THIS IS NORMAL not ABNORMAL!

John 15:20a, Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.

2 Tim. 3:12, Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

WHEN YOU FINALLY TAKE A STAND FOR THE WORD AND YOUR SAVIOR, YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED!

The world declares TOLERANCE, but they are only TOLERANT with the Christian as long as they do what they want and agree with.

A BELIEVER WILL NOT AGREE ON MORAL ISSUES THE SAME AS AN UNBELIEVER.  THEY HAVE DIFFERENT MASTERS.  

The unsaved obey their king and live his moral values – Eph. 2:2-3.

The SAVED now obey their King, and His name is Jesus!  

JESUS SAID IT BEST!

Matt. 10:34, Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

THIS IS A RARE OCCASION IN AMERICA THAT CHRISTIANS HAVE TO TAKE A STAND WITH THE WORD AGAINST THE WORLD’S SYSTEM.  THIS CAUSES ANGER, HATRED, PERSECUTION SIMPLY IN THE NAME OF TOLERANCE.

STAND SAINT, STAND!

LIVING HOLY FOR JESUS!


extreme_grace

GRACE, GRACE, GRACE, GRACE – I love the GRACE of Jesus!!!!

Grace is the power to live HOLY for Him as we walk on this journey to complete our destiny and purpose.

SO MANY HAVE MISINTERPRETED GRACE AS THE ABILITY TO LIVE HOWEVER THEY DESIRE WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES.

ROM. 6:1-2, Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?

SIN is foreign to the Christian.  HUH?

Before we were saved we had the nature of our father the devil, and SIN WAS NORMAL!

Eph 2:1-3, Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.

AFTER SALVATION you no longer have that nature.  Since you no longer have the sin nature, SIN IS NOT NORMAL IN YOUR LIFE.

2 Pet. 1:3-4, By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP YOU LIVE SIN-FREE TODAY.  HE WILL CONVICT YOU JUST BEFORE YOU STEP INTO IT.  

RESPOND TO HIS CONVICTION AND LIVE A HOLY AND SIN-FREE DAY!

It’s almost time for service at His Tabernacle Family Church on Memorial Day


What an amazing week in Jesus!
At RAGE youth ministry this week, 2 more souls came to Christ. It is such a testimony that each week people are receiving Jesus into their lives. What a privilege it is for His Tabernacle to be trusted with Daddy’s babies.
To date, not reporting the souls to be saved this morning at service is 114.

Today we are preaching on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit! Don’t be ashamed of your heritage…

Yesterday the 2011 Bike blessing had 91 registered riders and it was a HUGE success.
Monday we are in two parades, Elmira and Horseheads. The outreach team has made the best float to date and we are asking everyone to come and walk with us in the parades. This shows the family side of His Tabernacle. We are giving away freezer pops and invitations this year. Come and reach the lost through testimony of presence on Monday.
