What In The World Is Going On With The “Church” World???

Did you know the average person who claims they go to church, really does not go to a true church? They might worship in an edifice built to look like a house of God but in all honesty, the activity that goes on within the four walls of the edifice are total opposite to the True Church of Jesus Christ. How can we tell the difference between the True Church and the False Church? What about people who say they go to church but still lie, steal, gamble, fornicate, murder, backbite, and casino hop? Are they saved??? The church of today will say YES they are saved so long as they have simply accepted Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Is acceptance enough? I mean, the bible does say if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Christ rose from the dead you shall be saved. Notice the words in bold. The scripture does not say you ARE saved, it says you SHALL BE (future tense) saved. So this leads us to believe that there is way more than just believing in order to have TRUE salvation.

One of our loyal readers asked a very important question to me. I wont share the identity nor the church they go to but I will show you my response to the reader:

First thing first, if a Pastor is NOT preaching the gospel which is the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16), on a consistent basis and telling the congregation to follow John 3:5 and Acts 2:38 every service, that church is not preaching the truth. We die to our flesh by repenting of our sins. We are buried with Christ through Baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are resurrected to new life when we come out of the water and receive the promised gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the spirit gives utterance. If a person is in a church that does not preach this, one would need to leave and find a church that teaches the biblical form of salvation.
 
Remember, the reason of the existence of the church is to save souls. Spread the gospel (good news). Prepare for the coming of the Lord. If the correct plan of salvation is not being taught, there is no reason for that particular church to be in existence and in all honesty, those that attend that particular church are just getting their emotions fed. Its called the “feel good gospel”. That type of gospel has no salvation, it does not offend or step on peoples toes, it does not prick any one’s heart to cause true repentance. That type of church causes sinners oto stay in sin and and does not require sanctification (Leviticus 20:7). In these churches, light and darkness mix together (even though the bible says what fellowship does light have with dark 2 Corinthians 6:14). In other words, all 66 books of the bible are optional and basically a “cafeteria religion” is being promoted from the pulpit to the pew. I’ll take this, I’ll take this, but no thank you to that, no thank you to thank, and oh, I’ll take half of that.
 
I don’t blame sinners for going to the club, casino, and living it up in sin. That’s what sinners are suppose to do. The people that are seen in clubs, casinos, and living ungodly lives during the week when they are not in church are NOT SAVED! There is no way you can claim salvation and still enjoy the pleasures of your flesh and the world and not even attempt to change. Everyone is to blame. The pastor is to blame for not teaching the truth to the congregation, and the blind dumb sheep are to blame for not picking up the Word and read it on their own. Ultimately everyone is going to have to individualy give an account for their deeds. So guess who goes to hell? Both the Pastor and his entire unsaved congregation. The bible says NONE BUT THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL SEE GOD (Matthew 5:8)! The bible says for without holiness no man shall see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). The bible says be ye holy for I am holy (1 Peter 1:16).  If a person does unholy and unrighteous deeds, we can clearly deduce from scripture that they will be left behind when the rapture comes and ultimately will go straight to hell where both body and soul will be tormented day and night (Revelation 21:8). Whats worse is, for modern day Christianity, Hell doesn’t exist. We know this because no one preaches it. When is the last time you heard Eddie Long, TD Jakes, Joel Osteen teach on Hell? The only time you hear the word hell in the pulpit now is with silly cliches “After all the hell I’ve been through this week, I still have joy”. “I told the devil to go back to hell”. Bishop so and so preached the hell outta that sermon”. You see, Pastors preach what the congregations want to hear, sinners remain sinners while faithfully attending a church that does not cause them to live a life of holiness, and ultimately, when the trumpet sounds and the dead in Christ rise, entire congregations are going to be left behind.  Dont believe me? Read matthew 7:13-14Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  What does that tell you. The MAJORITY are on a path leading to destruction and only A FEW are headed toward eternal life. Thats what your bible says.

Play with God if you want. My eternal soul is too precious to be played with. Why sit under fables and riddles (Titus 1:13-14)? Why preach a lie and cause people to this its truth (Romans 1:25)? Dear Saint, I have some good news, REAL GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!! As long as there is life there is hope. God is such a patient God that He desires all should come unto repentance and that none should be lost (2 Peter 3:9). The Holy Ghost is real, He is moving about the earth wanting people to come. After the Spirit calls, God promises to fill you with His Spirit so that you can live a victorious life through the only saving name, Lord Jesus Christ. Its time for people to be leaders and not followers. If no one else wants to be saved, make up in your mind that you will be saved if it kills you!

When people ask why “so and so” is going to the club and singing on the choir, share with them that according to the bible, you have been commanded to come out from amongst them and be separate saith the Lord and that my advise would be to do the same if you plan on going to heaven (2 Corinthians 6:17). When someone cant believe their eyes when “so and so” is in the casino, advise the person that according to the holy bible, it is written for me to be a good steward of my finances in tithe and offering and I plan on being faithful to Gods money by making sure I don’t take gambles with the worlds way of “getting rich” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Tell them that your God promises to supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory so there is no reason for anyone to trust in the worlds system of doubling or tripling money (Philipians 4:19).
 
That said, I pray that if your Pastor is out of the will of God and not preaching The Truth (or any Pastor for that matter) you need to find a bible believing truth preaching church. Never mind religious organizations, never mind denominations, if they are teaching the Gospel (death, burial, resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, that salvation is only found in Jesus who is God almighty, and that the only way to have biblical salvation is being born of the water and spirit) then that’s the church you or anyone for that matter needs to be a part of.
 
I’m passionate about The Truth and I’m even more passionate about bringing sinners to The Truth. I pray that you receive this email in Love in the mighty name of the One True Living God, Lord Jesus Christ who is God Almighty wrapped in flesh.

Time out! Its time to call a “time out” and really level with ourselves. We are mere weeks away from the book of revelation being thrown wide open and “the real” end time events start to happen. Yeah, wars and rumours of war, famine, pestilence, earthquakes are all part of end time events. But you havent seen nothing yet when the anti-Christ final appears IN FLESH and attempts to cause the whole world to worship him. Guess what, the majority is going to worship the beast and his image. Why am I going to play with your soul and not tell you the truth? Whywould anyone want someone to stop promoting true holiness and separation from the world. Stay blinded if you want, you’ll find yourself at the throne of the anti-christ. Instead, try saying to yourself and to God “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”! Dont be fooled people, stop following after these strange gods, become a part of the true church and pick up your cross and follow Jesus.
