One of the most insulting things that I have heard from a leader is this. When they say,
- I know you are an excellent teacher, but why don’t you hoop? Because then I can get my praise on!
- When you teach, it makes me think and I don’t want to think, I just want to dance.
- Your words convict me, and I don’t want to feel uncomfortable when I come to church.
In other words, you don’t want the knowledge and wisdom or breakdown of the understanding of the revelation that is being taught. You just want to hear the cords of the keyboard or organ and the sound of the drums, because you not trying to be taught so you can grow. You just want your flesh to be entertained.
You are not trying to shift, you just want to shout, because you don’t want transformation, but you want someone to make you feel comfortable in the condition you’re in.
This is the attitude of many in these last days. Hoop and holler, but don’t teach because then I’m forced to change because of the knowledge I have received.
People are saying, “Let me dance let me shout and let me stay in the spiritual decay that I love.” They want to remain intact with their sins iniquities and issues and they don’t want you to addressed their hidden secrets.
But this is the hour that God is bringing the people to accountability and opening their eyes to see their spiritual conditions. He is saying, “It’s time to deal with the bondage the strongholds the chains that have held you captive.”
Church, it’s about to get ugly in the Body of Christ, because the Holy Ghost is not going to let you alone until you realized that you are in fact a Christian, but you not delivered from the fleshly issues that keeps you from living life abundantly.
Get ready. The Lord is bringing forth those who can see beyond your mask, your form of godliness, your cover ups of sin. He is saying, “It’s time to teach train and enlighten My people by teaching the Word with understanding now!”
Preparation is necessary so that when the trumpet sounds you can go and be eternally with The Lord! It’s about preparing you for eternal life, not making you comfortable for eternal hell.
