The Ramblings of a Prophet..!
God have mercy…!
Unfortunately the Church has done a bad job at truly preparing many for the reality of the times we are now living in.
A wishy-washy Gospel has been peddled from the pulpit that says just a little compromise is okay, just a little sin and passivity is not that bad, because God is an all inclusive God and he loves all no matter what condition they live their lives.
The Fear of God is absent in many Churches these days. Many have opened their doors to the system of the world because they fear offending man and the size of the offering will be effected.
No longer do ministers count rejection and hatred for the Gospel they preach to be a great privilege and honour — absolutely not!!
They are not rejoicing when people get up and walk out their sermons, because what is being preached confronts and convicts sin.
No, many have watered down The Word of God to a size that fits all, and we wonder why stories of many falling away and walking away from their faith has become common place.
These stories are not so surprising as much as they are heartbreaking, but indeed the beginning of the great falling away had begun.
The Gospel that is preached today in many Churches claim that there are many roads that lead to God, because He is a God who has “evolved with the times.”
When last did you hear a sermon on sin, hell and judgement preached from the pulpit?
Unfortunately, many have been conditioned by a false Gospel that tells them that God is all about giving them blessing, abundance, wealth, health, victory, prosperity, power and authority, and while these things are indeed true, The Bible also tells us that the road that leads to an abundant life requires that we lose our lives, that we will be hated, despised, rejected, used, abused, persecuted and even in some cases, put to death for the sake of the true Gospel.
The road we are called to walk on as believers is a road that leads to one place alone — The Cross!
it is a road of suffering, sacrifice and a life of total selflessness and surrender; a road that requires a death to the flesh and a death to the things of this world.
Unfortunately, many do not have grid for pain and suffering and selflessness or sacrifice or surrender, because they serve a God of their own imagination, a God who in their eyes is their servant and a God who just understands and winks when they violate His Word and disobey His Will!
So when true hardships come and when difficult trials roll in — which they will — quickly disillusionment and confusion sets in.
“Who is this God and how can He let me suffer like this? Surely this is not the God of love that I have come to know and love!”
Unfortunately, the Church has lowered the standards to that of the worldly systems; strobe lights and smoke machines draw the people that now fill our worship services; cafes and eating donuts during the preaching of The Word has become the new trend among many, in the hopes that no one feels uncomfortable or challenged.
True intimacy and total surrender are now a thing of the past.
We now have a take-away Gospel that is quick, convenient and cheap and we wonder why we raising up a people without true and authentic power and authority in the earth.
But God will not be mocked…!
God will You forgive us?
Would You come in Your Power and Your Righteous Anger and would turn the tables of unrighteous living and compromise in Your House?
Would You come with The Whip of Your Word and would you discipline us once again, so that we may become rightly aligned with Your Truth, that alone can only set the captives free?
Would You send Your Purifying Fires to consume and cleanse the works of deception that have defiled the heart and minds of Your People?
Would You send The Spirit of The Fear of The LORD once again into our gatherings, so that lives can be changed and transformed forever?
Would You stamp the reality of heaven and hell on the eyes and lips of your servants, so that the great harvest of souls can begin in the earth?
Father, forgive us as ministers for preaching a false Gospel that leads and has led many to eternal damnation.
Forgive us for preaching a Gospel that has given license to compromise and sin.
Forgive us for turning a blind eye to sin, sexual immorality and the killing of the unborn and then expecting You to do the same.
Oh God, forgive us for what we have done; the blood is on our hands.
Send Your fire. Send awakening once again, and revive us..!
Blessings to you all.
