A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “Guess What”

You can’t change God no matter how hard you try.

Malachi 3_6 God does not change

God has not changed. Who has bewitched you?

Conviction of sin Hellfire Preaching has been replaced with inspirational, feel good prosperity/motivational sermons.

Confession and Repentance have been replaced by a “sinners prayer” and institutional membership.

Conviction of sin against God’s Eternal Holy Commandments have been replaced by political correctness and tolerance.

Emotional Demonstration has replaced the Holy Ghost Manifestation.

The God-chosen, called, anointed and sent Man of God has been replaced with the academically credentialed and denominationally approved hired motivational speaker, philosopher and storyteller.

The God-ordered masculine leadership in shepherding and pastoring has been usurped and perverted by a feminine counterfeit.

Holiness and purity have been replaced with lewdness and brazen sexual immorality.

Virginity is not prized nor expected among believers anymore. Now fornication and “Single Parenting” are the norm. So-called Christians are hosting baby showers for unwed mothers thus rewarding and promoting a departure from sexual purity and teaching moral apathy.

Obedience to All Ten of God’s Eternal Commandments, Godly Character, Sexual Integrity, Genuine Salvation According to the Holy Scriptures – Acts 2:38 – and an Authentic Directive From FATHER YHVH are no longer prerequisites for pastors but academic credentials and denominational theology and organizational loyalty are prided above all else.

The Holy Spirit no longer leads the worship or directs the message of the ministry but doctrines of Catholicism, Protestantism and New Age Christianity and Social Theology governs the worship experience.

Although no genuine Apostle of Christ has ever heard of or approved of “praise dancing” or “miming” as a part of the worship of FATHER YHVH, these aberrations are practiced and celebrated by believers.

While the hypocritical dogmas of religion and society passionately point out the outward subjective taboos and ills of smoking, drinking and damaging drugs – which have no precedence in the Ministry of Christ – they neglect to passionately war against the soul threatening and damning moral sins of cowardice, greed, homosexuality, pornography, lewdness, nakedness, lesbianism, fornication, material extravagances, whoredom and prosperity-seed faith gospel preaching.

The focus of contemporary Christianity seems to have changed from conviction, confession, repentance and salvation to wealth building, prosperity preaching and competitive membership growth.

The attitude of the Church has changed from that of being enthusiastically grateful and loving toward God because He is God to that of being manipulative toward God because they want material wealth and riches from God.

The contemporary Christian Church seems to have changed from looking toward Heaven to looking for Heaven on earth.

The Ekklesia of CHRIST Founded by the True Apostles of CHRIST had a clear understanding of what was holy and acceptable to God. They knew that they were to separate themselves from the world’s value system, behaviors, foul language, sexual immoralities and way of thinking. But now so-called Christian churches are welcoming the world’s views into their ministries.

The Church at one time knew that a real conversion experience – a born again experience (Born of the water and of the Spirit with evidence of the gift of the Holy Ghost by the speaking in tongues) – had to take place before a person could serve in any capacity in the body of Christ. But now all one has to do is recite a witchcraft incantation called the “Sinner’s Prayer” and join a church and they are magically transformed into a so-called Christian.

The place of worship used to be a place of serious, effective, heartfelt prayers – a place for learning about how God loved us so mush as to die for our sins and give us a right to eternal life. It was a place of genuine ministry where we learned of God‘s forgiving love and we were challenged to live a holy, clean, respectable, morally straight and honorable life – where the saints gathered to worship in Spirit and in Truth. But now it is a well orchestrated theater where entertainers, artists, musicians, playwrights and choreographers’ come to perform their crafts – where book deals or promoted and salvation is commercialized.

For many, Christianity has become a whore that welcomes other whores. It is for sale to the highest bidder. It caters to the clientele with the most money so as to maximize its own wealth and popularity.

Believers used to look for a real Man of God to lead them but now they want a politically correct figurehead to represent their interests, their causes and their beliefs. They do not really want to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying. They want to hear the voice of their denomination or religious group – the voice of their causes and their agendas – not God‘s Eternal Word.

At one time it was important for Christians to represent God and holiness in the way that they dressed. But now it seems that Christians have chosen to represent the sexually charged, arrogant, pretentious and lewd apparel of the world.

Holy Spirit filled women in the church used to dress modestly in order to please God and keep down confusion and distraction in the Church. But now it seems that the women in the church are dressing as naked, lewd, seductive and provocative as possible

Well, I have got some good news for some and some not so good news for others.

The world may accept, embrace, promote and applaud the changes in sexual morality, gender roles and what religion calls worship, but God has not.

The world may sanction many forms of religious practices, methods of soul salvation and pseudo moral dogmas, but God has not.

Some so-called Christians may have bought into the false notion that church membership makes them right with God and their faith is just as good as anyone else’s, but God has not.

The Christian community at large may have accepted, tolerated and sanctioned women as pastors and leaders of men, but God has not.

Institutions of Christian education, preparation and ordination may confer upon the unconverted, practicing sinner a license to preach and teach in their churches, but God has not approved them for service in His Ekklesia.

Man-made religious institutions may guarantee salvation through the recital of a “Sinner’s Prayer,” but God has not.

The world and its counterfeit Christianity may label the true saints of God as being sanctimonious, fanatical, judgmental and intolerant, But God Does Not.

Some church folks will seek to impress you with large worship facilities, symbols of prosperity and images of success, but GOD Will Not.

Many are impressed with the multitudes of deceived believers that seem to be drawn to mega-churches and mega-personalities, but GOD IS NOT.

Unconverted celebrity entertainers, singers and actors and sexually  immoral individuals are being accepted by society at large as qualified spokespersons for Christ based solely on popularity, talent and financial success, but God Does NOT!

Many believe that a Ministerial License, Scholarly Degrees, Ecclesiastical Titles and Accolades qualifies one to speak on God’s behalf, but God Does Not.

God rejects your changes and doesn’t acknowledge your ways.

Things may have changed but God has Not. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. And His Commandments, His New Testament Plan of Salvation and His Eternal Standards of Holiness Have Not Changed.

God says,

“Ye shall be holy; for I am holy.” – 1 Peter 1:16

“I am the LORD, I Change Not” – Malachi 3:3:6

Amen
