Repetition causes Spiritual Malnutrition

 

Physical malnutrition differs from spiritual malnutrition in the fact that one can remain healthy and eat the same food over and over as long as it has the correct nutritional values.  However spiritual food is much different, it must change daily, because it spoils in 24 hours.  The western church is badly malnourished.  Shepherds have been instructed to NOT save yesterday’s manna.  “My food must be fresh from heaven daily or it will breed worms, and stink.”  However they hearkened not unto My instruction; and most of them serve yesterday’s messages over and over,  Exodus 16:15-21.

The fast food industry has crept into My church and the sheep are weak and malnourished to the point of death. Some are bored to tears waiting for My fresh manna. Leftovers are frozen, and shipped in via the Internet, then it’s packaged up, and printed up. Then a little spiritual gluten is added, then it’s artificially flavored with a few jokes, to make it taste good, but it’s killing the sheep. It is the responsibility of the shepherds gather fresh manna from heaven for every feeding.

“I had the twelve disciples call the multitude of pastors and teachers to a meeting, and tell them, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. [3] Wherefore, brethren, in each church, pick out seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, to be appointed over this business of caring for the physical needs of the sheep. [4] But all pastors and teachers must give themselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word,”  Acts 6:2-4.

A few weeks of spiritual milk is fine for newborns, but even that must be fresh daily.  Principles must be taught but not from a lesson book only, because each of My babies have special needs, and only I know their formula.  To feed them all the same food, at the same time, from a year old manual, is slow death.  They will never survive the whiles of the devil.  Continual prayer, not the beach or golf course, or waiting on tables, not the Internet, not lesson planers, but continual prayer and waiting on Me is all that is necessary, to receive a healthy download of food for the day.

After a few weeks, get them off milk, they must quickly move to solid foods.  NOTE: Spiritual one year olds, are no longer babies.  I turned the entire world over to twelve, three year olds and they turned the world upside down.  If you have been saved four years, you are not young in Me, that is unless you are malnourished, from eating leftovers.  If this is the case, the sheep must tell the shepherd, “I am starving for fresh manna, please stay on your knees and feed get fresh food from the throne.”

Ask them to leave off repeating the principles of the doctrine of salvation, and go on unto maturity; please stop laying again, over and over the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, [2] Stop repeating over and over the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.  [3] They can do this at times, but only if I permit it,”  Hebrews 6:1-3.

There are millions of dwarfed, starving, malnourished, babies, with all kinds of flesh diseases, laying on the doorsteps of church buildings across America.  They are all crying for My fresh manna.  “Here is a message direct from My Father, surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not My flock;  [10] Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

[11] This is what My Father says;  Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.  [14] I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.  [16] I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment,”   Ezekiel 34:8,10-11,14,16.
