Something is running out of control in the church!
We have no vision for the spiritual needs of the Church!
We have no power to help other people to God!
We have no hope in the Lord Jesus Christ!
We have no love for God and others!
We have lost our way to God!
We have no song in the night!
We have no direction in life!
We have no peace of mind!
We have lost our way!
Do you want to know why this can be in “civilized” America?
How would YOU answer these questions?
Would it be a hate crime to keep the truth from people and let them go to hell?
Will I go to hell if I refuse to accept Jesus as my Saviour and Lord?
Is homosexuality a sin against God and society?
Is there any hope for me?
Can I know where I came from and where I am going?
Did God create this universe from nothing in six “creative days”?
Can I have a loving, personal relationship with God?
Is God really interested in me?
Is the devil a real person?
Does life begin at conception?
Is the Bible, as the Word of God, absolutely reliable?
Can I live a morally pure life in an impure world?
Is evolution a godless religious faith?
Will God forgive me for all the bad things I have done?
If you answered NO to any of the above questions, you are a big part of the why!
You have put yourself above God’s Word!
You are wandering about in sin’s dark night!
You have forsaken the main message of the Word of God!
You are a blind leader of the blind!
You have forsaken the God of your fathers!
You are lying to yourself and others!
You are a poor lost sinner without hope in God!
You are a false prophet!
You are a false teacher!
You have forsaken the offence of the CROSS of Jesus Christ!
You should not be a leader in the Church of the Living God!
You have replaced the authority of God’s Word with denominational pomp’s authority!
You are a wolf in sheep’s clothing!
You have not loosed the bands of wickedness!
You have not set the captives free!
Your denominational loyalty is leading you and others astray!
Your hatred of God and His ways is plain to see!
You cannot hide from God!
You are naked in God’s sight!
You cannot keep your rebellion against God that is working ruin on yourself and others forever!
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
I command you to stop your wicked rebellion against God right now!
Now that the reason for our national depravity is shown to the world, the church has no excuse for placing blame on everyone else!
We cannot place the blame on the communists or the United Nations!
We cannot place the blame on the abortionists or the homosexuals!
We cannot place the blame on our tyrannical government!
We cannot place the blame on our unsaved neighbours!
We cannot place the blame on our national debt!
We cannot place the blame on the devil!
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
I command you to repent of your personal depravity right now!
We need the Lord God of Glory to save us!
Now that you have repented of your personal depravity, pray with me that the Lord God of Glory will deliver us from the following sinister curses!
Man’s rule of success (church marketing) that opposes God’s rule of church success (fruit unto holiness)!
A lack of Christian discipline in the Church that does not guide its membership to live a holy lifestyle!
Denominations that do not call people to repent of their sins, and to accept Jesus as their Saviour!
Church leaders who oppose the Word of God's message of salvation through Jesus Christ alone!
Church leaders who have destroyed the Church with their “Purpose Driven Church” strategies!
The curse of denominationalism that is dividing Jesus’ Church into opposing camps!
The church that man built that is so worldly-minded it is of no heavenly good!
The doctrines of demons that have crept into many of our churches!
Church leaders who have no personal up-to-date walk with God!
Church organizations that could do just fine without God’s help!
The doctrines of man that oppose God’s holy commandments!
Church leaders who love their sins more than they love God!
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
I command the church to repent of its rebellion against God right now!
This is a power point presentation!
!church about think you way the change may It!
Enter at your own risk to be exposed to the honest truth concerning the lies promoted by most of today’s “Christian” churches! You will face yourself and think about your relationship with God and others! It will give you God’s way to overcome many of life’s problems! May Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord, bless you as you seek His will for your life!
What engine is driving us to this place of national apostasy?
This National-Rebellion-Against-God engine has 21 cylinders that is accelerating its passengers to eternal ruin! It is powered by rebellion against God and His ways with an individualism that says, “As long as it does not concern me and my loved ones I do not care what happens.” It has all kinds of bright lights and dazzling displays to attract lawless people into its traps of doom. It runs on two tracks. One track is: “Do not judge me!” and the other one is: “My religion is as good as yours!” The engineer is the devil’s "free-thinkers" mob. The conductor is the devil in sheep's clothing. It has no brakes! Anyone who gets in front of it will be run over! It's smoke is polluting the land! You can go to its dining car and get the same pig's food the prodigal son ate. You can go to its sleeping car and sleep the sleep of death. If you like, you can just look out its fogged-over window in despair as you observe the desolation this train is driving you through to your eternal home (not the home God intends for you). If you do not like the ride, then "listen up" to the rest of this presentation. It will get much better. It has a "they lived happily ever after" ending!
Cylinder 1: There is no fear of God to restrain evil. Without a respect for God, there is no respect for His people. Furthermore, without a respect for God there is no respect for any other authority. Anarchy overruns our land.
Cylinder 2: There is outrageous sin in and out of the church. People who are professing to be speaking for God are telling others there is no such thing as sin, that what they do is their own personal choice. Therefore, people are "freed" to experiment with alternate lifestyles.
Cylinder 3: There is worldliness in the church. You cannot tell the difference between the world and the church.
Cylinder 4: There is no spiritual discernment in the church. Good is called evil and evil is called good. People cannot tell whether God or someone else is talking to them.
Cylinder 5: There is no real love for God and others in the church. There is a lot of lip service, but no faith that works through love.
Cylinder 6: There is no faith that leads to faithful service for God and others. Real faith believes that "God is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him" with their whole heart.
Cylinder 7: There is the Laodicean attitude that says, “I am OK, you are OK.” The church is more interested in self-esteem then they are in how God esteems them.
Cylinder 8: There is an unwillingness of the church leadership to make hard discipline choices. They are more interested in church finances than they are in church purity.
Cylinder 9: There is a lack of vision that fails to honour God. Having no vision of God or His program for the church, they make up their own. Therefore, numbers become more important than spiritual growth.
Cylinder 10: There is a lack of stewardship within the church membership. They feel that no one has a claim on their time, talents or treasures except themselves. They have no concept of being "caretakers" of what rightfully belongs to God.
Cylinder 11: There is no burden for the eternally lost ones. There is no concept of people having a need for a Saviour to save them from the power and consequences of sin.
Cylinder 12: There are false doctrines in the church that are placing man’s precepts above God’s commands. There are many things that are passed off as “Christian doctrine” that is far from what the Bible teaches.
Cylinder 13: There is an unwillingness of the church to go into the deep things of God. They do not go on to perfection. They do not “grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Cylinder 14: There are lazy people who want to be blessed without blessing God and others. There are 50 year old “babes in Christ” who never made an effort to develop a loving, personal relationship with God and His people. They expect to be “spoon-fed” by their spiritual leaders.
Cylinder 15: There is a lack of devotion to God and His righteousness. There are people in our churches who would sell off their spiritual liberty in Christ for a little fleshly pleasure in a heartbeat.
Cylinder 16: There is no community spirit that leads to Christian unity. Each is out for his/her own personal prosperity. It is all too individualistic with the attitude “you bless me!” They have forgotten, or never knew, the command of Jesus that we were to love one another. They do not take time to make friendships with the body of Christ.
Cylinder 17: There is an unawareness within the church of the battle that is waged against God and His church. These people have not drawn a "line in the sand" to serve notice to the devil and his combatants that to cross over the line constitutes a declaration of war.
Cylinder 18: There is a lack of a personal, up-to-date relationship with God within the church leadership as well as its membership at large. Many of the pastors in our churches are just as lost as the congregation they are “ministering to” each week.
Cylinder 19: There is a half-hearted confession of sins with no suggestion that those sins should be forsaken. Each Sunday morning the church is led in a prayer of confession of all kinds of diabolical sins without a call to personal repentance.
Cylinder 20: There are all kinds of spiritual idolatry displayed in the church membership. Anything that is worshipped above the Lord God of Glory is an act of idolatry.
Cylinder 21: There is selfish pride that refuses to acknowledge the need for personal repentance in our churches, big time! Selfish pride has barred the gates of heaven for more people than all the other sins put together. Some people are real good at giving their strong reasons as to why they will not go all out for God and His kingdom work.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
I command the church to stop this engine and board the Master’s train right now!
If we ever are going to get back to God, we are going to have to do what He tells us to do! We need to put first things first. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:33 that we are to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” We are to let God give us the things we need after we have sought Him and His righteousness. What does this mean? Again, going to the Bible, God’s Owner’s Manual, we read in 2 Chronicles 7:13, 14, “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people; if My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Spiritually speaking, we have had no rain of God’s Holy Spirit upon us for decades. Whole generations have never seen a mighty out-pouring of God’s Holy Spirit. We have been devoured by the locusts for just as long. We are being devoured by all kinds of spiritual wickedness in high places. We are plagued with all kinds of pestilence. There are things that are plaguing us in our churches we never thought could happen. The statistics for the world are about the same as those the church has to contend with at this very hour. We do qualify for 2 Chronicles 7:14!
Seeing we are in a train that has no brakes and shows no mercy, we are going to need help from some source outside of ourselves. The only help we have is the Lord God of Glory. The God revealed in the Judeo-Christian Bible. We need the God of Abraham, Moses and Samuel to help us. We need the God of Peter, Paul and John to stop this train of rebellion against God and His Holy ways.
God wants to help us. He is pleading to us that we will come to Him to find deliverance from this rebellious train that is driving us to eternal ruin. He cannot help us if we keep fighting Him. We must come to Him in humility and faith. We must “believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” with our whole heart.
This is the only way we are going to see “God Bless America,” or any other nation as far as that is concerned. We have done it our way long enough! Let us admit it; we have made a mess of it. We are much worse off now than when we were honouring God and His ways. We have no human that can save us. We need the Deity we forsook, the God of our Fathers, to save us!
Recently, the Lord has reaffirmed my call--to call people out of darkness into His marvellous light and out from under the power of Satan; to humble themselves under the mighty hand of God. Therefore, what I am telling you comes straight from the Lord God of Glory. Do not turn Him away!
Here is what God is calling you to do. (1) Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and talk to Him about your need for His deliverance from all sin. This is your first step toward your Heavenly Father. (2) Call upon the name of the Lord. His name is a name above every name. He is steadfast and sure. His name is the only one that can save us. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but through Me.” It is at His name that every knee shall bow and confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. (3) Seek God’s face. To see His face you will need to turn from all your sins. You will need to surrender your will to His will. (4) Turn from your wicked ways. Everything that is against God and His ways is a wicked way. Turn from everything His Holy Spirit reveals as a wicked way.
If we will do our part, God will do His. (1) He will hear from heaven. We will have His attention. (2) He will forgive us our sins. He will cast them as far as the east is from the west, never to be remembered against us any more. We will then start on the road to a loving, personal relationship with our Heavenly Father and His family of believers here on this earth. (3) He will heal our land. This healing will first be accomplished by lifting us into heavenly places in Christ Jesus. As this is accomplished in each of us, our whole nation will be lifted up. Our land will be healed.
I want to encourage you to do this today!
You have been away from Him long enough! Now is the day of salvation for you!
