Yesterday, I thought about how the church has treated whistleblowers, setting the standard for how our government now does.
Today, I’m pondering how we can expect politicians and NSA heads to not lie when pastors still do as confidence men, acting like everything is okay when they know it is not.
The worship services are dead, but they say how wonderful they are — when they fully know that God tangibly did move in the past, but really hasn’t been for many years now.
The pastors know what the solutions are. God has spoken to them directly and through others, but they don’t want to lose face. So they refuse to get right with those they’ve hurt so we can be ‘ONE,’ so God can move again. They won’t even teach Jesus’ clear, Matthew-5 teaching about reconciling.
So instead of teaching God’s goal for the church: Ephesians 4:11-16), they now teach once-saved-always-saved: “I’m okay; you’re okay” — even when their guilty consciences tell them otherwise.
We’re just going to keep going around the mountain while America continues to fall, until we are willing to do what the Holy Spirit has been specifically saying for decades now.
It’s time to repent. How much more evidence do we need. God is not mocked. He will continue to resist the proud, as He said He would, while LONGING to give grace to the humble.
And that GRACE will be AWESOME — “that the world will know” (John 17)!
The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.
Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!
The Achan Factor — Because of one man’s disobedience the entire nation of Israel had to deal with the “Achan factor” among them before they could come under the umbrella of Almighty God’s blessings once again!
[9-minute AMAZING video] Arrested in Iran, horrified missionary, Dan Baumann has VISION OF JESUS in jail, Whose love SETS HIM FREE TO LOVE his torturer, who leads others to Christ. Set free in his heart, God gives Dan TOTALLY HONEST words to speak at the trial for 20 minutes. And Dan was released from Iran too! — “God gave me the grace to stand up and speak the truth. And in doing so it brought freedom in my heart. I AM FREE!!!!!!!”
Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
Wes Hall [IHOP] on William Seymour’s 1909 prophecy of the shekinah glory returning to the church in 100 years: “Let me tell you about the church in the book of Acts. …the fear of God was on the community, and no one dared join them. But they were highly esteemed. Why did no one dare join them?”
If we build it He will come:
