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!

Rend Your HEART!


rend

JOEL 2:13, Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.”  Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. 

THE FATHER IN HIS GREAT MERCY AND COMPASSION IS CALLING HIS CHURCH, HIS BODY TO GET BACK TO THE WORD OF GOD AND TO LIVE CORRECTLY.

Yesterday the Lord spoke to me a word for the body of Christ.  He told me that this year He was so passionate for His family that those who have been going after Him He would propel and those who have been running from Him, He would break their legs.

WHAT?

BREAK THEIR LEGS!!!

THAT IS CRUEL!

IS IT REALLY?

Would you want to serve Jesus if He did not care enough to pursue you?  He chose you, and is calling His family to rend their hearts and not their garments.  Jesus is calling us to open our hearts and surrender MORE to Him.  Those silent sins, those secret separators, those devilish deeds that are corrosive to your intimacy with Jesus, HE IS ASKING YOU TO REPENT – TURN FROM THEM!

It comes down to who you love more……..THE SIN OR THE SAVIOR!

Sin has no control over you because when you got saved Jesus broke the power of sin over your life.  So the sins we hide and that hinder our time with Jesus are choice, not bondage.

REND YOUR HEART – REPENT – CALL ON HIS NAME AND HE WILL WASH YOU BECAUSE HE IS COMPASSIONATE AND MERCIFUL!!!

Thank you Jesus for loving us so much you are willing to call us to repentance rather than abandoning us!

I CHOOSE TO REND MY HEART TODAY BECAUSE A MERCIFUL CHRIST IS CALLING.

Why Do You ALWAYS COMPLAIN?


complaining

Ps. 95:2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
Ps. 100

THE COMPLAINING & NEGATIVE

Newspapers and just human nature, we usually steer towards the negative of the situation rather than being a person of thanksgiving and praise.

The children of Israel did this well

Complaining when they came to the Red Sea: They were being led by a pillar of fire at night, and a cloud by day,
hummmm, think God was with them?

Red Sea – Ex. 14:11, Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? God delivers them on dry ground and the Sea comes back and drowns the entire Egyptian Army.

Bitter water made sweet at Marah & Bread from heaven
Ex. 16:3, And the children of Israel said to them, “Oh, that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and when we ate bread to the full! For you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”

Thirst – water comes from the rock

If we took just our morning today, would our conversation be more complaining or thankfulness?

WE ARE A VERY BLESSED PEOPLE

Even though our unemployment is high, compared to the rest of the world we are so blessed!

Bangladesh – 13 cents and hour
China – 44 cents and hour
Costa Rica – 2.38
Dominican – 1.62
El Salvador – 1.38
Haiti – .62 cents
Honduras – 1.31
Indonesia – .34 cents
Nicaragua – .76 cents
Vietnam – .26 cents

Some would say, “You have no idea how bad it is”

Be thankful for what you have and you can be trusted to appreciate more”
1. You have JESUS AND ETERNITY
2. You have the WORD OF GOD
3. You have BREATH
4. You have FREEDOM
5. You have LOVE
6. You have A LOVING CHURCH
7. You have FAMILY
8. You have A PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD
9. You have CLOTHES ON YOUR BACK
10. The list is massive

Take a moment and write down 10 things you are thankful for in your life.

DECEIVED “CHRISTIANS”


deceived

NOBODY WANTS TO BE DECEIVED……BUT MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES “CHRISTIANS” ARE BEING LULLED INTO THE CALDRON OF DECEPTION WHICH WILL COST THEM THEIR ETERNITY.

What a STRONG statement Pastor Micheal Spencer….WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

Honestly, this has nothing to do with me….IT IS THE WORD OF GOD!

Matt. 7:22, On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.

IT IS NOT THE WORKS YOU DO….IT IS THE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.

It today’s “Christianity” people come and confess Christ as their Savior and then continue living the same life they always lived when they were”unsaved”.

Jesus does not become their #1 priority.

Seeking the Kingdom is not their #1 priority.

IT IS LIVING AND LOVING THIS WORLD THAT IS THE PRIORITY!

The Word is so very clear on when we become citizens of the Kingdom and our relationship with this world.

1 John 2:15, Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.

LOVING THE WORLD MEANS YOU PLACE IT BEFORE JESUS AND HIS WORD!

Demas did this and Paul speaks about it in 2 Tim. 4:10, For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica.

Demas loved this world more than he loved Jesus.

WHEN ANYTHING OR ANY OTHER PERSON TAKES PRIORITY OVER JESUS THEN YOUR LOVE HAS SHIFTED AWAY FROM CHRIST AND LUKEWARMNESS STARTS TO SETTLE IN YOUR HEART.

We need a REVIVAL!  What is revival?  It is reviving something that was once alive and now has died to come to life again.  

LOVE JESUS FIRST!  THIS IS NOT A SUGGESTION…..IT IS A COMMAND TO BE ABLE TO ENTER HEAVEN.

Who do you love more?  PROVE IT WITH YOUR LIFE AND ACTIONS!

ARE YOU CRUMBLING?


house-in-sand

IS YOUR LIFE BEING ROCKED BY TROUBLE?

Home….

Health….

Family….

YOU LOVE GOD AND BELIEVE IN GOD, BUT THIS TROUBLE HAS ROCKED YOUR FAITH!

This shows a serious issue……YOU HAVE NOT BUILT YOUR FOUNDATION STRONG ENOUGH.

Matt. 7:24-27,“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

YOU MUST KNOW WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOUR TROUBLEBEFORE...THE TROUBLE ARRIVES.

Build your faith on the Rock Jesus, who is the WORD OF GOD!

When you do not build our spiritual strength through the Word then when you have trouble at your door you are then scrambling to secure the house so the winds and storm don’t destroy it.

WHY GO TO CHURCH?

WHY GO TO ROCK SOLID FAITH?

WHY JOIN A MINISTRY AT THE LOCAL CHURCH?

So you will have a SOLID foundation so that when the house is shaken you will remain standing.

This does not happen on accident.

BE PREPARED!

BE READY!

2 Tim. 2:15, Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

NO FOUNDATION….DO NOT BE SHOCKED WHEN YOU STRUGGLE TO STAND IN THE STORM.

INDEPENDENCE from JESUS!


independence

ALWAYS IDENTIFYING THE ROOT ENABLES YOU TO MAKE SURE THAT THE WEEDS DO NOT RETURN.

THE ROOT PROBLEM IN MOST BELIEVERS’ LIVES IS THAT THEY ARE INDEPENDENT FROM GOD IN MULTIPLE AREAS OF THEIR LIVES!!

Nobody wants to go to the Lake of Fire, so many have come and submitted their lives to Jesus for salvation.

Rom. 10:9,  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

BUT…..THAT IS AS FAR AS THEY ARE WILLING TO SUBMIT THEIR LIVES.

Many want to remain in control of their families, wealth, health, and their obedience level.

HERE IS THE ISSUE!!

The ROOT SIN of Lucifer, and Adam and Eve was that they chose to be INDEPENDENT from God.

Their INDEPENDENCE caused weakness and separation from the LIFE GIVER, THE CREATOR, THE MASTER, THE KING, THE LORD!

Are you submitted to the Word of God in your daily walk?  

Are you submitted to the Word of God in your finances?

Are you submitted to the Word of God in your obedience?

IF THE WORD DECLARES IT ARE YOU WILLING TO SUBMIT TO THE WORD OR REMAIN INDEPENDENT?

Jesus was faced with this same decision in the Garden.

Luke 22:41-43,  And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

WE WOULD NOT BE SAVED TODAY IF JESUS CHOSE INDEPENDENCE FROM THE FATHER’S WILL!

LIVES DEPEND ON OUR DEPENDENCE TO THE WORDS OF GOD.

So many have caused their own struggle and stress because they have chosen to not SUBMIT in OBEDIENCE to Jesus.

WHERE ARE YOU INDEPENDENT IN YOUR WALK WITH CHRIST?

WHERE IN YOUR LIFE ARE TELLING GOD YOU WILL NOT SUBMIT IN OBEDIENCE?

TRUTH BENDS YOUR REALITIES!


faithwalk

MANY ARE LIVING A FAITHLESS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER!

I am not saying that they are not saved.  They have enough faith to be born again, but to WALK BY FAITH………few are living the GREAT LIFE!

2 Cor. 5:7, For we walk by FAITH, and not by sight!

FACTS are undeniable realities (provable).

BUT

JESUS NEVER TOLD US TO LIVE BY FACTS, HE TOLD US TO WALK IN FAITH!

FAITH IN WHAT?

Faith that what God has said in His Word is above the FACTS.

TRUTH trumps FACTS because God’s Word is above the natural realm.

John 14:6A, Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life. 

Jesus is the Word!

The Word is the Words of God the Creator

The Words of the Creator are above the facts of the fallen creation

Therefore the Word of God is above the facts of the natural world we live and walk within.

We walk in TRUTH, and are not governed by the FACTS.

God has not told us to deny facts – He told us to have faith in the TRUTH!

DO YOU HAVE MORE FAITH (TRUST) IN THE TEMPORARY SHIFTING OF CIRCUMSTANCES THAT THIS WORLD CALLS FACTS AND REALITIES?

OR

DO YOU HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND HIS WORD THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE FACTS ARE YOU WILL DECLARE GOD’S TRUTH OVER AND RELEASE YOUR FAITH TO BEND FACTS?

TRUTH TRUMPS FACTS!!

TRUTH TRUMPS FACTS!!

TRUTH TRUMPS FACTS!!

What do you trust more in Jesus the TRUTH or FACTS that shift and change?

Get your feet solid on the ROCK CHRIST JESUS and see TRUTH BEND YOUR FACTS TO COMPLY WITH THE SUPERNATURAL WORD OF GOD.

YOU Talk TOO MUCH


shhh

ISN’T IT AMAZING THAT WE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT OUR OPINIONS MATTERS?

We babble, chatter, talk too much and say things that declare that we are foolish instead of wise.

The worldly people are watching and listening to our speech.  They hear our talk, they read our Facebook posts.  They view the snapchats, and read the Twitter accounts.  SO MANY WORDS COMPILED ALWAYS LEADS TO SIN.

Have we ever asked ourselves why we talk so much?

Why do we laugh and tell foul jokes?

Why do we complain so much and speak death and not life into our situations and circumstances?

WE MUST ARREST OUR MOUTHS AND BRING OUR TALK INTO ALIGNMENT WITH THE WORD OF GOD!

Pro 10:19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is

Ecc 5:3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.

1Pe 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;   LIFESTYLE

Col 4:6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Psa 34:13  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

Pro 12:18  There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.

Ps. 19:14, Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

TODAY MAKE A DECISION THAT YOU WILL NOT ALLOW WORDS TO ESCAPE YOUR LIPS BEFORE FIRST EXAMINING THE HARVEST THEY WILL PRODUCE!

GOOD Doesn’t Always Mean GOD!


Good and Bad - Business Concept

MANY TIMES WE LOOK AT THE GOOD THINGS AND THINK BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD THAT IT MUST BE A GOD THING…….

NOPE!!!!

Good does not always mean God.

The enemy and even our flesh can be tempted to do things that are not EVIL yet, ARE NOT GOD.

THE WORD IS OUR GUIDE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR DIRECTOR.

Sports are not bad…….BUT PEOPLE CHOOSE SPORTS OVER OBEYING GOD IN GOING TO CHURCH.

Money isn’t evil……..BUT PEOPLE WILL TRADE CHRIST FOR $1 MORE PER HOUR AND SURRENDER MINISTRY AND BIBLE STUDY.

Sunshine isn’t bad…….BUT PEOPLE DISOBEY GOD FOR THE SUN ALL THE TIME.

Relationships are not bad……BUT PEOPLE TRADE JESUS FOR FAMILY AND LOVE ALL THE TIME.

Business is not bad……BUT WHEN IT TAKES CHRIST FROM THE #1 POSITION IN YOUR LIFE IT BECOMES EVIL.

The list is never ending…..BUT THE TRUTH STANDS FIRM!

Ps. 119:11, I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Ps. 119:160, The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.

John 17:17, Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.

WE MUST TAKE EVERYTHING WE DO AND MEASURE IT FROM THE WORD OF GOD.  GOOD THINGS THAT DRAW AWAY FROM THE PRINCIPLES OF THE WORD ARE QUIETLY EVIL.

What if it is not drawing me away from obedience?

THEN ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR HIS DIRECTION CONCERNING THE GOOD THING.

Rom. 8:14, For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED THINKING THAT GOOD IS ALWAYS GOD!

THE GOD THING WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD, BUT IT WILL ALWAYS BE ESTABLISHED ON THE WORD OF TRUTH.
