The Lukewarm Church is Blinded by The World (Video)

The Lukewarm Church is Blinded by The World

When did we stop trusting God? When did we stop trusting Him to really make us into a new creation and then to grow us from one degree of glory to another (See II Corinthians 5:17; 3:18)? Perhaps it all started when the world turned its back on God and then discovered very quickly that humanity was in trouble. Why were they in trouble? There was no longer a moral anchor and humanity began to drift into a greater sea of immorality. Many tried desperately to reign in terror and gross immorality with new laws and mandates, but everything failed. As churches emptied and immorality increased fallen humanity needed a solution and they needed it quick. So, in time they resurrected some old theories of a pagan writer who lived a few centuries earlier; someone who thought he understood human nature. Then with the experimentation of new drugs, seemingly to affect behavior, and this new science of mental health, then the art of modern psychology was born. So, humanity no longer needed God to direct their path and provide them a moral anchor, because a new quasi religion had arrived on the scene to solve all the problems of fallen humanity. So how does all this affect the lukewarm church?

Let’s back up a minute. Humanity had been in great trouble once before. Many centuries before when every man called upon his own deity and decided his own fate. A time when most of humanity could change his moral commitment or religious devotion as easily as changing his soiled clothes. The world was on a collision course with destiny and all would have been lost if it were not for one solitary figure. Jesus Christ came offering a new life to all who would follow Him. This was the miracle of miracles! He came to offer eternal life, but the real miracle is that it would start immediately. There was no waiting.  The new life in Christ was not just a promise, but a reality to be experienced now. All that was needed was faith to open the door and even that would become a free gift through His amazing grace. If God could create the heavens and the earth, then surely he could re-create new life in His children. Nothing was left to chance, but everything was planned down to the smallest detail. God would begin by giving us the indwelling Spirit with a specific job of growing us from one degree of glory to another, by putting His laws into our hearts and writing them in our minds, giving us a desire and the ability to obey them, and even convict us when we strayed from the path. But that’s just the beginning!

Jesus Christ would establish His Church. Let’s be clear this is not the building. It is the people of God who are encouraged to come together as one people. Jesus Christ knew we needed one another as we grow and change becoming the new person in Christ. We would realize almost immediately that becoming different from the world would cause some dire problems. We would soon discover that we are no longer loved as their own, but rejected, scorned, and even persecuted. In the beginning of my own Christian pilgrimage, I can still remember the words of exhortation, encouragement and even an occasional admonishment from other dear children in the Lord. Of course, the greatest teacher was the indwelling Spirit that validated the beautiful Words in Scripture and helped me apply them to my own walk. I also discovered the great joy that comes from corporate worship and intercessory prayer. Then there was the great reward of helping others who had just begun their new life in Christ. All the “one another statements” in the Bible became especially meaningful as we learned to mutually encourage one another. So you might be wondering how did counseling from the world, devised for fallen humanity, get into the Church?

Well, there is a two-fold answer. Most people coming from the world, especially the adults, have grown up being told about all the things that they could suffer from. People started looking at their mental health the same way that they looked at the rest of their health issues. For us older folks we know it didn’t always be that way, psychology and any talk of mental health was only for crazy people, not for us regular people. As time progressed it became the most natural thing to suffer from worry, anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness, fear or any other number of disorders. For the record, the book containing these disorders has grown very thick over the years. The counselor’s office became just as important as the regular doctor or even the preacher. The great turning away from God created the humanistic counselor who promised to help those who struggled with their sins, which by the way was no longer called a sin, but an illness. This became so popular among fallen humanity that the Seminary started teaching psychology to new pastors, first in the Catholic Church, then also in the Protestant churches. I can remember taking a class in psychology at Seminary 35 years ago with many new pastors vehemently resisting the notion of needing to learn something that was designed to help fallen humanity – for those who turned away from God.

So over the past 35 years, psychology or at least its bedfellow Christian counseling (that utilizes the same methods as psychology) found itself fully established into the ministry of the local church. Now I know some pastors today will say that my Christian counseling always points people to the Bible. Yes, I am sure that it does, but it does a lot more. It uses most of the same operative words of psychology allowing them to stay trapped in their perceived illnesses that takes a great deal of time to bring about healing even if that’s totally possible. Where is the promised new life in Christ? Where is the miracle of miracles? Some pastors even take it a step further and preach this lie of needed counseling for the new person in Christ and the perceived illness straight from the pulpit. Whatever happened to sin? Jesus Christ never established the Church to set up counseling offices to help His children. What He did do was give everyone a new life in Him along with the indwelling Spirit who is our Counselor. He gave us a body of believers to help one another by bearing one another’s burdens and utilizing all the beautiful “one another statements” in the Bible (See Galatians 6:2).

What we should be doing is helping them to confirm their new life in Christ. Help them to see if they are really saved and if not, then perhaps there is an issue with faith, not an illness. We need to be as bold as the New Testament that says, if we say that we have fellowship with Him then we no longer walk in darkness (See I John 1:6). If we say that we know Christ, then we keep His commands (see I John 2:3-4). If we love the world then the love of the Father is not in us (See I John 2:15). If we do righteousness, then we are born of Him (See I John 2:29). If we are born of God, we do not purposely sin or make a habit of sinning (See 1 John 3:9). That should do away with the idea that we continue to struggle for years with the same sins of worry, anxiety, fear, depression, and many other sins now categorized as illnesses. Where is the new life in Christ? We need to help people to know if they are truly God’s precious children then we should be helping them to put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ immediately. Yet, the lukewarm church has constant, non-ending counseling allowing them to remain as little more than babies in Christ or of a carnal mind which is an enmity to God. We pray Lord that you awaken the lukewarm church.  It’s time we threw the heretical teaching out of the lukewarm church and become the true Church. Let us experience the miracle of miracles, our new life in Christ. Amen

The Prophecy (Video)

Why does anyone reject a true prophet? Why would anyone reject, “The Prophecy.” Clearly, prophecies tend to dash people’s hope. Although I may proclaim loudly it doesn’t need to do that, for most it will. Hope is a very powerful tool in the hands of those who wish to shape the destiny of a nation. It’s very powerful when people want something different than what they had before. After watching this video please share with others.

The Prophecy

They say that a prophecy unsaid is like burning embers in the soul of man. If the spiritual vision was real and the mind was expanded to receive it then I must, I feel compelled, to proclaim it. Let this prophecy be spoken first to the Christian Church then in time all will hear. Some will accept it while many others will reject this truth and will continue on their merry way. Why does anyone reject a true prophet? Why would anyone reject, “The Prophecy.” Clearly, prophecies tend to dash people’s hope. Although I may proclaim loudly it doesn’t need to dash your hope, for most it will. Hope is a very powerful tool in the hands of those who wish to shape the destiny of a nation. It’s very powerful when people want something different than what they had before. Let’s keep that in mind while we listen to this prophecy. There is so very much to say it’s difficult to know where to start. So, I will start at the beginning.

Perhaps our hope was found in the new administration. For many years this country and the world were all headed in one direction. As the ship of State continued full steam ahead there was not that many major course corrections, no matter which party was elected. Their goal then and now was globalization. No borders, no walls, no problem. They worked frantically to build a brave new world to accept every lifestyle, every sexual orientation, and every religion upon the planet to accept one another as partners in this new world order. Even the Catholic Church has embraced this idea during the Obama Administration. The young men of science have paved the way by demonstrating how AI or Artificial Intelligence could greatly improve our lives and how they now had it in their power to stop global warming, send men to distant planets, to keep asteroids from hitting planet earth, to remove hunger, poverty and establish a UBI or Universal Basic Income, which we will talk more about in a minute.

First, we need a bit of a history lesson. For a very long time now perhaps from the late sixties step by step this country along with the rest of the world has been pushing God completely out of the picture. From evolution to psychology to prescription drugs young people were being taught that God did not have all the answers for modern man. The entertainment industry, schools of higher learning, and the news media agreed leading an entire planet to accept its new teachings. Eventually, the laws of God disappeared from our schools and government buildings being replaced with the laws of man. Teaching them that anything is possible if we just all learn to accept one another by tearing down our walls, opening our borders, and to hate the bigots or those who disagree. This has all been going on for a number of years while most of us slept. The previous administration of Barrack Obama woke up some of us to fight back while we still had haunting memories of colored lights on the White House.

This fight energized most of the Christian population to go to the polls. Deep in the heart of the American psyche they desired a new direction. They were tired of the perversions in the streets of America. They needed a new hope and they found it in an outsider. He was a bit rough around the edges, seemed a bit prideful, and had a sordid past with the women. But we liked his promises to make America great again hopefully sending it back to its biblical roots and to stop all this crazy talk about a new world order with open borders. We discovered quickly, however, that it was not going to be easy. The new administration rejected everything the world had been working on so hard to accomplish. People crying in the streets, making death threats, and abusing those who work for his administration showed us just how deep the divide was. The pendulum had swung fully to the right to rebuild the republic on the founding principles of capitalism. With the embrace of the Christian community the day had been won, a new hope and been established, but the prophecy does not look good for either capitalism or for the Christian.

Most economists know that eventually capitalism will fail. It will not be compatible with the new age of AI or Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics that will replace most humans as workers on the planet. Once that happens they will have no choice but to enact UBI or Universal Basic Income which will not work with Capitalism. The world will need a form of socialism and we all know from history where that will lead. There will only be two classes of people, those who run the world and everyone else. Before we get to that point the globalists will be back in office making plans for the future. The transition will be a lot easier than you think, because all the young people that had been groomed and taught by the State for so many years are now back in power. The pendulum will once again swing all the way in the opposite direction and they will remember well who had sent their ship of State in a different direction. They will remember well how the Christian community supported the previous administration run by the outsider.

So how is this going to affect the Christian who is living after the pendulum swings back allowing the globalists back into power? Not much for those who have already fallen away and no longer believe in the sufficiency of Scripture and the exclusiveness of Christianity. On the other hand, those who have remained faithful to the doctrines of Christ will be hated for the years they disrupted all their plans by forcing the ship of State to go in an opposite direction. This hatred will not be curbed by the globalists but may actually join with them in an open persecution of God’s faithful remnant. What we have seen as of late, such as refusing to serve people in a restaurant, by taunting them on the streets, or their vulgarity in the news media will pale in comparison. The onslaught of their hatred will not be unlike the first persecution in Ancient Rome. The Christian community will be blamed for its years of frustration with the previous administration. The prophecy is true, the pendulum will swing back, and Christians will be persecuted. God help us to stand firm. Amen
