Has it ever entered your mind, to question why the experiences that you hear about in My word are not happening in the very meeting that your hearing them in. You shout and jump about the stories, but you are not in the story!
Stories of healing, faith, and miracles being preached by the best story tellers in the business, receive amens and applause, yet after hearing them presented 52 times a year, in a dozen clever ways, people still leave as sick as they entered. Those with cancer continue to die, the blind still feel for the entrance, and the deaf still depend on sign language. Doesn’t this bother you?
The bible stories told and the word being preached, does not profit you, because it’s not being mixed with faith as you hear it, (Hebrews 4:2). It’s been the same for the last ten years, don’t you think something is wrong with this picture?
Wheelchair ramps in My kingdom all have one way signs, but not in the American church. The people jump and shout in shock, if someone happens to get out of a wheelchair, because it is never really expected. Do you have any idea just how asleep the church really is, when no one even questions the difference between what they hear from My word, and what they are experiencing?
They are sound asleep, in a deep sleep! The stories have become so meaningless, that boredom causes people to search elsewhere, for the meaning of life. Does anyone understand that, “all these stories actually happened to people for examples: and that they are written for your admonition, to be lived out, over and over, right up until the end of the world”? 1 Corinthians 10:11.
It is so evident from the kingdom perspective, that American Christians, for the most part, have lost their first love. There are no more tear stained carpets caused by all night prayer meetings for the lost!
Godly sorry is almost nonexistent! Listen to the constant noise, talking, and loud instruments, filling the air of your services. Modern leaders are taught they must keep everything fast paced, and entertaining and short or the video game mentality crowd, will get bored and go to the next venue!
If there is silence more than 30 seconds, everyone gets nervous, so My still small voice is rarely heard.
I AM now calling out those who have a heart that’s after Me, and you that have a ear to hear, will hear what My Spirit is saying to the churches!
