THIS IS TRUTH MINISTRY – "There Are Racists In The Christian Church"

One Blood Acts

Racism In America Is Not Just A Problem of Classism, Discrimination, Injustice and Segregation.  Racism In America Is A Sin Problem In The Pulpit.  There are Christian racists everywhere in the Christian Church.  They are either racist by silent consent or racist by indifference or racist by personal ideologies of White supremacy.

Racism in America Could Have Been Solved From The Pulpits Of American Christian Churches, If the Pulpits Were Preaching God’s Truth OUT OF God’s Word In The Spirit of God’s Holiness Instead of Preaching Status Quo Ideologies Birthed Out Of Demonic Theological Standards of Humanism and Clandestine Racial Supremacy.

We Could Have Solved Racism, Slavery and All Of The Other Race Related Ills of Our Culture and Society From The Pulpit If Christianity And Christian Preachers Would Have Stood Together As One Saintly, Baptized, Holy Spirit Led Body of Christ Instead of An Amalgamation Of Various Perverted Social, Cultural, Political, Pagan And Racial Philosophies And Religions Competing For Supremacy, Celebrity, Power and Wealth.

The so-called Christian CHURCH and her many divisions – Protestant and Catholic denominations, have been so divided that they have rendered themselves virtually ineffective and mute on the issue of racism and totally blasphemous on the issue of salvation.

They can’t tell anyone else how to get along and be saved until they repent of their culpability in slavery and their deafening silence in the horrors of racial terrorism and discrimination.

If The Christian Churches Would Repent and Dissolve Their individual Distinctions and Return To the Authentic and Unadulterated and Theologically Uncorrupted Eternal Saving Plan Of God and Keep God’s Commandments like the Original Chosen Apostles of CHRIST Did and Taught, Racism Wouldn’t Stand a Chance and Slavery Would Have Ended Before It Began.

But it was Christian Church men and women who Enslaved, Tortured, Castrated, Humiliated, Dehumanized, Demonized, Raped, Burned Alive, Lynched and Slaughtered Blacks with Impunity and with Extreme Prejudice.

lynching1930

And although Christians and Christian Pastors are better educated these days, the divisive clandestine factions and hateful spirits still occupy many pulpits and pews and give safe haven and comfort to the enemies of racial equality, fairness, justice and unity.

We have always known that racism and bigotry exists in Law Enforcement and the American Judicial and penal system but we have failed to expose its insidious nature hiding in the pulpits and the churches of American Christian culture.

But no more.

Wake-up people!!! There Are Racists In The Christian Church.

I know that everyone is not a racist and that all churches aren’t the same nor do all churches remain silent on the sin of racism.  However, a significant number of Christians and Christian churches and their Pastors have been too quiet about the obvious systemic racism, judicial disparity and the blatant murdering of Black Children, men and woman by racist elements in authority and I am calling them out on their cowardly and surreptitious behavior.

Acts 17

God Is The God Of All People and All Races but most especially He is the ONE TRUE GOD of the poor in spirit, the oppressed, shattered, crushed and brokenhearted. And He Is The God of The Pure In Heart and the Peacemakers.

Truly there is only ONE GOD – YHVH!
There is ONE SAVIOR – CHRIST THE LORD!
There Is Only One Body (Ekklesia) Of Christ.
There is One race – the human race.

There isn’t a Black Church or a White Church or an Asian Church or an Hispanic Church or an Arab Church or an  Armenian Church. 

There Is Only ONE TRUE and HOLY Body of repented, buried in water in the name of Christ Jesus, Holy Spirit Gifted Ekklesia of Christ and of God.  And in CHRIST there aren’t any racial distinctions – Only The Blood Of Christ and The Spirit of God.

“And from one blood he made the whole world of humanity to be dwelling on the whole surface of The Earth and he marked out the times in his decrees and set the coasts of the dwelling places of humanity.” (Acts 17:26)

Many Preachers and Christians have refused to accept the Holy Scriptures’ Testimony That All Humanity Is Related Through One Blood.  And they compound their sin by disobeying the Apostolic command not to be denominated or divisive.  AND IF THEY CAN’T BELIEVE AND ACCEPT THAT TRUTH, THEN THEY DISQUALIFY THEMSELVES FROM HAVING THE BLOOD OF CHRIST WASH AWAY THEIR SINS. FOR THE POWER OF RACIAL UNITY IS IN THE BLOOD

These Folks Are Not Of God But Are Lost.  

May God Have Mercy On Us All!

Amen!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – "THERE IS A RIGHTEOUS HATRED"

Cannot Be Friends With Some People

 

The world wants us to believe that we should only hate those who they tell us to hate and love those who they tell us to love.  The world teaches and rewards those who learn and endorse its demonic doctrines and immoral practices and traditions.  The world is selling a pseudo-Christianity that ignores GOD’S Ten Eternal Ten Commandments and celebrates and idolizes the god of this world and her false religions that are sometimes referred to as “One World Religion.”  The world is run by Satan and her demons and there isn’t any truth in her nor does she love and obey GOD.  The world loves, celebrates, endorses and legalizes the very things that God hates and abhors.

1 John 2:15-17 tells us to…
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

References:

Psalm 139:20-22
For they speak against You wickedly, And Your enemies take Your name in vain. Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? I hate them with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.… 

2 Chronicles 19:2
Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him and said to King Jehoshaphat, “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD and so bring wrath on yourself from the LORD?”

I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked.

TODAY’S SABBATH DAY MESSAGE–“SOME FOLKS MAKE THEMSELVES GOD.”

Marriage joined together

I met someone today who reminded me of how totally prejudice and unloving some so-called Apostolic, Pentecostal Christians can be with regards to their opinions and treatment of divorcees. 

According to this particular Non Denominational Church member, without any knowledge of the particular mitigating circumstances, a divorced person is prohibited from ever marrying again in the Faith.  They are doomed to live a lonely and loveless life because if they dare to marry anew or marry a divorced person, they are excommunicated and ostracized out of the fellowship of their church and pronounced as a practicing adulterer and a damned soul by the church and the pastor.

Thank God that these self-righteous zealous bigots don’t have a hell or a heaven to put me or anyone else in.  Hallelujah!  Thank You Jesus.

We must pray for their enlightenment and their freedom from spiritual ignorance and the twisted, deceitful, unintelligent, hypocritical Scripture interpretations of Satan and her demonic forces.  We must pray for those who hypocritically hold the form of godliness but deny GOD’S Eternal Ten Commandments and reject His Seventh-Day Sabbath by observing sun-god day – the first day of the week- as their sabbath and who turn the Liberty of the Spirit of Christ into a Burdensome Legalistic Version of Literally Interpreted Written Codes. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

“Now the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, through the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared.  They forbid marriage…”  (1 Timothy 4:1-3)

But The Apostle of Christ Taught Us This Truth. And That Is That “We Have Liberty In Christ And Not Imprisonment.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)

1 Corinthians 7:15-16 says:
”But if the unbeliever (Those who don’t keep The Commandments of God and of Christ Jesus) leaves, let him (her) leave.  A brother or a sister is not bound (Not married but divorced) in such cases.  God has called you to live in peace.  For you, wife, how do you know whether you will save your husband? Or you, husband, how do you know whether you will save your wife?”

These scriptures are speaking to marriages that took place under the jurisdiction of the Faith and not under the jurisdiction of a civil government authority or license. 

There is a difference. One was joined by mankind’s judicial/civil institution and the other by the hand of GOD Himself.

Caesar is governing authority over one and God is the governing authority over the other.  Thus we render unto Caesar those things that belong to Caesar and unto GOD those things that belong to GOD.

I contend that the Holy Moral Laws and Divine Principles of Holy Scripture cannot be applied to the sinner nor can a sinner understand them.  For they are spiritually discerned through the Holy Spirit by revelation and not through the spirit of intellectualism, religion and denomination or apostolic theology.

I personally know of divorced folks who have been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ by burial under water and who have been gifted by GOD with the Holy Spirit who spoke out of them in tongues and prophesied.  These same individuals later married again within the body of CHRIST and have lived a holy and blessed life ever since.  After they were married to new spouses in the Body of Christ, some of these Saints’ health improved and their happiness increased along with their love and service for GOD.

Now if their divorce was unjust, immoral and ungodly and the intentions of their hearts were so wicked and adulterous, why would God cause His Holy Spirit to live in them?  And since God accepted them by giving them the Holy Spirit, who are we to disavow and disqualify them as Saints of YHVH.

Acts 15:8-9 says:
“And God, who knows the heart, showed His approval by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as He did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, for he cleansed their hearts by faith.…”

We better be careful who we curse and damn.  We may just curse who God has chosen to accept and bless.  Thus making ourselves an enemy of GOD.

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE / “THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS”

Faith without obedience 1

Does going to church make you a child of God?

No! Devils attend church services too and many are pastors and church officers too.

Does praising GOD make you a saint of GOD?

No! Every tongue – good and evil – shall confess that Jesus Christ is LORD.

Does believing in GOD and CHRIST make you a follower of CHRIST?

No! Demons believe and know that there is only ONE GOD but they follow Satan.

Does confessing Christ with your mouth and believing in your heart make you born again?

No! Confession without genuine repentance is a lie. And belief without corresponding obedience is wishful thinking.

There is only ONE authentic God-authorized WAY to be born again and that is to surrender to GOD and TRUST and OBEY ALL of GOD’S ETERNAL COMMANDMENTS IN CHRIST, including HIS Command to Be Born of the Water and of the Spirit.

THIS IS TRUTH MINISTRY – “UNTIL WE REPENT AND OBEY, OUR WORSHIP AND PRAISES ARE REJECTED”

Isaiah 1:10-20 Common English Bible (CEB)

10 Hear the Lord’s word, you leaders of Sodom.
Listen to our God’s teaching,
people of Gomorrah!
11 What should I think about all your sacrifices?
says the Lord.
I’m fed up with entirely burned offerings of rams
and the fat of well-fed beasts.
I don’t want the blood of bulls, lambs, and goats.
12 When you come to appear before me,
who asked this from you,
this trampling of my temple’s courts?
13 Stop bringing worthless offerings.
Your incense repulses me.
New moon, Sabbath, and the calling of an assembly—
I can’t stand wickedness with celebration!
14 I hate your new moons and your festivals.
They’ve become a burden that I’m tired of bearing.
15 When you extend your hands,
I’ll hide my eyes from you.
Even when you pray for a long time,
I won’t listen.
Your hands are stained with blood.
16 Wash! Be clean!
Remove your ugly deeds from my sight.
Put an end to such evil;
17 learn to do good.
Seek justice:
help the oppressed;
defend the orphan;
plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let’s settle this,
says the Lord.
Though your sins are like scarlet,
they will be white as snow.
If they are red as crimson,
they will become like wool.
19 If you agree and obey,
you will eat the best food of the land.
20 But if you refuse and rebel,
you will be devoured by the sword.
The Lord has said this.

We can mime. We can dance and shout real pretty too.

We can spew eloquent poetry and music lyrics in melodious tones and rhythmic beats.

We can make the guitar talk and the keyboard cry and the drums move our feet.

We can wave our hands in the air like we just don’t care and say “hallelujah,” “Praise the Lord” and “Amen” with the angelic host.

And none of these things do God require. And none will keep us from being lost.

But what He does command of us is to be born again of the water and of the Spirit and keep His Holy Commandments.  Yet, some refuse to obey God’s WORD and thus in the end He must damn them. 

Some think that they can play with God and praise Him while in immorality, rebellion and sin.  Some think that they can worship their way to Heaven if they give money time and time again. 

But Why not OBEY ACTS 2:38 and enter into The WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE. Then and only then will your worship and your praise be RIGHT.

REPENT!

UNTIL WE REPENT AND OBEY, OUR WORSHIP AND PRAISES ARE REJECTED BY GOD.

OBEY 1 Samuel 15_22

TODAY’S SABBATH DAY MESSAGE / “HAVE WE SET GOD ASIDE?”

Sabbath day observance ETENAL

It still amazes me how professed believers in Christ continue to place a lot of importance of observing the traditions of men while nullifying the Commands of God and excusing themselves and others from keeping the revealed SPIRIT of the LAW that CHRIST and HIS Apostles kept and taught.

“BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN. Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.” He was also saying to them, “You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition.” (Mark 7:8-7-9)

In the above scripture text, Christ expressed the importance of keeping God’s Commandments. He never said that God’s Commandments were to be ignored or that they will pass away. He would not say that since “All of YHVH’S works are perfect, and all HIS ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is HE.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)

Therefore divine perfection doesn’t change and God’s perfection is eternal as He is eternal. (Malachi 3:6)

As a matter of fact, during Jesus’ sermon in Matthew 5 where He was teaching on the Spirit of The Eternal Ten Commandants of God (Not Moses’ Laws) and demonstrating how we are to think about GOD’S Commandment, He said, “Anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:19)

Man’s theology and traditions have managed to teach nations and a multitude of folks to set aside many of the commands of YHVH. (Daniel 7:25) And mankind’s own sinful and arrogant nature has practiced neglecting the commandments of God in favor of their own traditions, festivals and twisted perceptions of righteousness and religions.

SABBATH DAY ETERNAL

This deviation from the TRUTH has gone on for centuries and is so embedded in the Christian thought and mind that it has become commonplace and normal in the majority of Christian congregations to ignore any Commandments of GOD that does not fit into their religious traditions or theological beliefs. A good example of this would be Sunday worship. Sunday has been called the “Christian Sabbath” when in actuality it is not a Sabbath at all nor was it ever acknowledged, practiced, observed or taught as the Sabbath of GOD by CHRIST and His Apostles. Many Christians have set aside the fourth commandment to hold to the traditions of men. (Ref. Who Changed The Sabbath?)

Many professed Christians, and I was one of them, planned for, observed and kept, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Birthdays, Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween and other manmade occasions like Saint John’s Day, Founder’s day, Church and Pastor Anniversaries and national holidays while totally setting aside many of the eternal Commandments of God.

I have since repented of my ignorance and disobedience and have asked The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY TO please forgive me and to help me to live in such a way as to be Faithful to HIS Commands while obeying HIS call, witnessing to His GREAT LOVE through CHRIST and revealing HIS SAVING TRUTH to All.

Let me be clear. I am not against anything but sin. And the only thing I am advocating for is Repentance that will lead to obedience to all of God’s (YHVH’S) Commandments in CHRIST our LORD and the indwelling of HIS promised gift – The HOLY SPIRIT.

Therefore, before we engage in any of the traditions of men, let us examine ourselves and make doubly sure that we haven’t set aside the Commands of God in favor of manmade traditions, festivals, holidays or events.  Let us examine ourselves against the backdrop of CHRIST and HIS APOSTLES and see if we are seeking to please FATHER YHVH as CHRIST did or are we idol worshipers who are slaves to our traditions.

Let’s be certain that we haven’t set God aside.

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “MERRY CHRISTMAS”

jeremiah 10 2 3 4 Christmas tree is idol

I was driving past some elaborate Christmas displays this evening and became sick in my spirit as I was made to understand through the revelation of the HOLY SPIRIT that all of the elaborate Christmas scenes, decorations, colorful lights, fairy tale images of Santa Clause, reindeer, elves, Christmas trees, toys and gifts were all a part of the overall plan of Satan to distract, misdirect, deceive and capture the world and devour the soul of the would-be saint and claim the LORD’s Glory for himself in the name and disguise of the “Christmas spirit.” And we know that the pagan festival of CHRISTMAS , which the world has run after, holds no godly significance to Christ or divine Scriptural or prophetic reference to His birth nor God’s plan and purpose for saving the world. (2 Corinthians 11:14)

And now that I have been gifted by YHVH’S HOLY SPIRIT to actually see how Satan and his religious systems of beliefs have twisted the TRUTH and the True message of Christ birth into something steeped in paganism and  doctrines of demons and man-made traditions, I cannot help but to cry out, “Woe is me. I am ruined for I am a man who lives among a wicked and perverted people who have committed great evil and idolatry in the land in the name of “CHRISTMAS.”

Pagan Christmas

I can hardly believe that I didn’t see this earlier. How can a world that rejects Christ, who celebrates sexual immorality, same-sex marriage and abominations and who doesn’t obey any of God’s eternal moral Commandments and who is void of the Ruah Ha-Kodesh make any claim of knowing anything about CHRIST or what is Holy unto God? (Ezekiel 13)

How can a pagan winter festival that neither Christ nor His Apostles ever acknowledged suddenly be renamed and become the center of attraction to the world and central to Christianity? If the world loves it and celebrates it, shouldn’t the Saints of Yahweh be alarmed? (John 4:4)

If none believers, immoral practitioners and whole towns, cities, countries and nations are running after Christmas when they haven’t run after YHVH and Holiness, shouldn’t that sound an alarm?

Since in the history of the world, when has the wicked cooperated with the Children of YHVH to keep YHVH’S LAW and to worship and honor the TRUE and LIVING YHVH in Spirit and TRUTH?  Any such worship would not be pure and acceptable to GOD but corrupted, tainted and wicked.  Their worship is not true worship but a well disguised activity of Satan meant to rob, steal and destroy the believers and place their mortal souls in danger of HELL and at odds with God and with His Holy Messiah. (1 Peter 5:8)

pagan holidays 2

Through Religious Propaganda, Scriptural Corruption and The Mass Deviation From The Teachings Of Yehowshua and His Apostles By The Great Whore of Babylon and Her Offspring, Satan has infected a lot of believers with what can best be termed as “Christianity.” 

Christianity maybe defined as a institutional organism that markets in fundamental spiritual conflicts resulting from demonic doctrines, incompatible and reconcilable belief systems, attitudes and practices.

An very clear example of the Christian Infection is when a professed believer claims to be A Christian instead of a Saint of YHVH.  It is when the believer who claims to love GOD practices the very things that GOD Forbids.  It can be see in the Christians’ practice of celebrating Christmas, Valentines and Easter  — pagan festivals that are forbidden by YHVH’S LAW.  (Exodus 20:3, Deuteronomy 12:4 and Jeremiah 10:2)

Many believers in YHVH have become “Christians” as opposed to being saved, obedient children of YHVH.  They have been infected with the Christian spirit as opposed to being filled with the HOLY SPIRIT. They are conflicted and confused – deceived and infected with Spiritual Dissonance.  They are not in harmony With YHVH or Yehowshua. 

It is my prayer that the LORD reveals to the hearer of this revelation the damning and sinful ugliness that is so well disguised in the brightness and colorfulness of “Christmas.”

I pray that the HOLY SPIRIT convicts us of violating God’s Eternal Holy Commandments and compels us to repent and diligently seek the righteousness of the KINGDOM of GOD.

I pray for the salvation of every hearer for FAITH comes by hearing and hearing by The WORD of YHVH.  I pray for you to repent and to be empowered by GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT to overcome the deception of Christianity and the spiritual hypocrisy, demonic doctrines, and practices that its religion has indoctrinated believers to accept and embrace as Belonging to GOD.

I pray that we come to the marvelous LIGHT of GOD’S Living and HOLY WORD and Live.

Amen.

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
