It’s difficult to accept but the church at large has become a secular organization. Some perform same sex marriages and some pastors are committed homosexuals. They act like their lifestyle is just as normal as the marriage between a man and a woman.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination (disgusting).
I do not understand how “Christians” justify the things God calls sin. I recently read where the pastor of a large denomination would perform same-sex marriages but he got under conviction of the Bible. He “came out” and repented and would no longer compromise the Word of God. The people of his church began to demonstrate on the grounds of the church in defense of the sodomites. Now how can God honor a church that does not honor Him or His Word?
1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the Gospel, even so we speak: not as pleasing men but God, which tries our hearts.
When a man reads and believes God’s Word it is to please Him and no one else. The Word of God is truth, the highest form of reality, it can be very harsh on the flesh and lusts of men. In an attempt to protect the “feelings” of people, preachers have diluted the Word and relieved borderline Christians of their responsibilities. I for one do not want to stand before God on judgement day and discover that everything I did was a big waste of time.
1 Corinthians 9:27 I keep my flesh under and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
I greatly fear for the number of preachers that ministered all their lives, but on account of compromise they have nothing profitable to be rewarded of! We must all face these questions: is God welcome in our church? Do we need God? I believe everyone would answer yes to these questions. But how many of them are sincere? We do not want God to just take a seat in the pew, we need Him to be the Lord and Master of everything we do. If He is invited He will come, He inhabits the praise of His people. Some of our churches are so full of programs, we can’t seem to fit God in anywhere.
Mathew 16: 18B … and upon this rock I will build my church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Jesus built His church on the rock of revelation of His identity, it was not founded on the man Peter. Now, if Jesus built his church on Himself then shouldn’t He be active in His own house? When men boot Jesus and take His place they are called claim jumpers or trespassers. They will misrepresent the original claim and deceive many who think they are doing the right thing. The church needs God, I pray the church does the right thing.
I gave God His tithe
and He has opened Heaven over me.
Now I sow the seed He gives me, the devil cannot eat my seed.
The curse cannot stop my harvest and God will never forget my seed.
I am truly blessed like Abraham and I give God all the glory.
You will declare a thing, and it will be established for you
