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!

NO COMPROMISE!

WE WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR GOD OR HIS WORD!

The message of TRUTH is not always a comfortable stand to take, BUT we have been called to STAND FIRM AND NOT TO COMPROMISE.

Daniel 3:16-18,  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

WE WILL NOT BOW NO MATTER WHAT THE THREATS ARE AGAINST US!

Acts 4:18-20, So they called the apostles back in and commanded them never again to speak or teach in the name of Jesus.  19 But Peter and John replied, “Do you think God wants us to obey you rather than him?20 We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.”

THIS IS NOT A MOTION AGAINST A GOVERNMENT BECAUSE WE DO NOT FIGHT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD.  THEREFORE THE WEAPONS OF CARNALITY HAVE TO DIRECT INFLUENCE.  WE FIGHT IN PRAYER AND BY TAKING OUR STANCE AND NOT COMPROMISING.

One thing I learned over the years is that the Devil loves to see your breaking point!  He will push until he sees you step back in fear.  Once he has you backing up he always knows where you will break and run.

I DECLARE A HOLY BOLDNESS IN JESUS NAME TO COME IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU WILL NOT COMPROMISE THE CONSTITUTION OF HEAVEN WHICH IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD!

When people start to persecute you calling you homophobic or a bigot, know that this is not about sexual choice but that it is a direct attack against the King of heaven who designed family and life.  DO NOT RECANT, DO NOT COMPROMISE, DO NOT RELINQUISH THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD.

John 15:18-19, If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. 19 The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you.

WATCH OUT FOR THESE 4!

GOD GAVE US SOME INSIGHT ON WHAT TO STAY AWAY FROM TO PLEASE HIM.

1 Cor. 10:6, Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted.

The children of Israel displeased the Father and through this portion of Scripture addressed 3 areas that made Him unhappy with His family.

1)  Verse 7 –  And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.”

IDOLATRY – placing anything before Jesus.  He is to be #1 in our lives.  Exodus 20:3, You shall have no other gods before Me.  God is not a good sharer!!

2) Verse 8a – Nor let us commit sexual immorality….23,000 died in one day.

SEXUAL IMMORALITY – this has become commonplace in today’s Christian world but God has not changed His stance.  Sex before marriage is still a sin, and sex with someone who is not your spouse is still a sin in the sight of Christ.  God does not take sin lightly even though the American church does.

3)  Verse 9 – nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents.

TEMPTING CHRIST – He is a God of His Word!  Tempting Him will only produce a negative experience on our behalf.  Gal. 6:7, Don’t be misled–you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.

4)  Verse 10 – nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

COMPLAINING – this is ranked right up there with sexual sins and idolatry.  Who would have thought!  STOP COMPLAINING!!!  Rejoice in the Lord!  Praise the Lord!  Shout unto the Lord!  The joy of the Lord is your strength!

VERSE 11 – Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

RID YOURSELF OF THESE SINS AND PLEASE YOUR KING!

Victim or VICTOR?


Rom. 8:37, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

HOW MANY THINGS?

ALL!!!

We have all been victims in our lives.

    1. Rejection as children.
    2. Abuse:
      1. Physical
      2. Emotional
      3. Mental
      4. Sexual
    3. Churches and Pastors’ have abused people.
    4. Parents have rejected, abandoned, abused their children.
    5. Friends and enemies have inflicted wounds on our hearts.

 

The major difference from being a VICTIM or being a VICTOR is simply the choice.

I cannot count how many people have used their past as an excuse to hold them back from the BEST that Jesus has for them.  It is easy to blame everyone else for the lack of living in VICTORY, but the truth is, it is each persons choice.

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME!

It is not what has happened to you that is the problem, but what you are doing with the issue.

WE HAVE A CHOICE – BE HEALED, OR STAY TETHERED TO IT FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, AND ALLOW IT TO STEAL OUR FUTURE!

Luke 4:18,  “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor;  He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

JESUS CAME TO HEAL YOU OF YOUR HURT, ALLOW HIM TO TOUCH YOU TODAY!

Say it out loud with me right now….

I CHOOSE TO NO LONGER BE A VICTIM!  I CHOOSE TO BE A VICTOR IN JESUS NAME!
