MERCHANTS IN HIS HOUSE (CHURCH) The Blood of Jesus for sale?
I went to visit a friend of mine sometime ago and I heard something which sounded strange to my hearing…”I WANT TO GO AND BUY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.”
I thought this was a joke till I saw it.. I left without making a statement. After some months, I went to a tuck shop to get a few groceries and then I saw a red liquid in a small bottle and inscribed on it was “THE BLOOD OF JESUS.” This time I decided to probe and query it.
So I asked where I can get it, and I was directed to a church where it is been sold.
Hhmmmm… The blood of Jesus for sale?
This present Church dispensation and generation is perhaps the worst ever in the history of the church where anything and everything goes! In fact, some even have special blood and bread arranged on the communion table with price different price tags on it (some for 5 thousand Nigerian Naira (US$ 25)).
This may sound strange, but it is true! This may not be a palatable teaching, but the truth remains that bitter pills brings healing. I know there will be raised eyebrows and frowned faces, but its okay.
Now let us address this headlong: I believe in the Communion Table, Jesus told us to do it. The apostles did it. I administer it! But Jesus did not make a merchandise of this, neither did His apostles. So why should we?
The periods where shepherds pastored churches is almost winding up. Now we have hirelings, pastoring the churches!
Oh, gone are the days when called and anointed Pastors watched over the body, now we have clowns performing while the crowd cheers. The pulpit used to be a ground where men are PULLED from the PITS, now it is a stage for performance where people dignify themselves!
Because so called ministers of the gospel (so to speak) know not the Lord personally, they introduce all sort of things into what we call His house (church).
When the roman catholic priests sold indulgences, fathers of the faith fought against this and showed to the church that forgiveness can’t be bought, but that the just shall live by faith on the word of God!
The German monk Martin Luther stood for this even to the death.
The FAITH they fought so hard to preserve, is what we have messed up! The pulpit is not a place to display our marketing skills, go to the market for that!
For God sake, let’s let THE CHURCH BE!
Well, I may not blame these people much, but the so called believers who seek a QUICK FIX SOLUTION to their problems, instead of holding onto the Word in Faith! The body of Christ has suffered the highest form of abuse whatsoever!
Jesus sits in heaven and watch what is going on in His house and wonders if His true prophets still heart and listen the rhythm of the beating of His heart. Oh, that the Lord were here in person, I tell you what He would have DONE and SAID: He would have used His whip again and decried against all these saying “MY FATHERS HOUSE IS THE HOUSE OF PRAYERS FOR ALL NATIONS & NOT A DEN OF ROBBERS!
Stop exploiting people’s ignorance and let the believers return back to the Word of God! WE NEED TEACHING PRIESTS AGAIN TO RETURN TO THE HOUSE!
Because people lack the fear of God, they even go to the extreme of making merchandise out of SACRED things. Cant you see, PEOPLE ARE GETTING TIRED OF THE CHURCH AND ARE WALKING AWAY FROM HER!
God help us!
