THE CHURCH (BODY OF CHRIST)

HE CHURCH

The church needs to wake up and realize that giving our lives to the Lord does not mean going to church and working on a committee. It means “love not (our) lives unto death” Revelation 12:11

*********************************

The problem with the church is their definition of grace, protection, and deliverance is not God’s definition. God doesn’t treat us like “hot house plants”, wrapping us in plastic so nothing hurts us, He shows us how to withstand the wind, rain, cold and heat, and strengthens us, so that in the end we are truly His.

Psalm 18:28
King James Version (KJV)

28 “For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”

Dear Lord, please show us how to think and what to do about the things that are happening. Enlighten Your people, Heavenly Father, as to how these things fit in Your Word and into our lives. Please give us Your Wisdom and discernment as we desire Your will and Your will only. We repent of any faults, failures and sins and embrace Your forgiveness in gratitude. Please, Lord, create in us a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within us. Enlighten our darkness, Lord we pray!

Jeremiah 7:19
King James Version (KJV)

19 “Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?”

Powerful Words for our times!!! “Christians” who insist on burying their heads in the sand, and not pray for discernment, nor turn wholeheartedly to the Lord, will be deceived and confused.

*********************************************

Psalm 12:8
King James Version (KJV)
8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

Psalm 49:20
King James Version (KJV)
20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

This is the situation we are experiencing in the world, and particularly in the United States. We have vile people in office, and the wicked feel free to do what they want. W…

e have a man, group of men, in an honorable position who do not understand the principles of the God of the Universe, Creator of all things.

They have no understanding of what is fair, right, and just, and will use any evil methods to obtain their vile agendas. The Word of God says that they are no better than an animal, ….living by selfish motives and instinctive actions, and God will deal with them that way, as He did with the leaders of past civilizations who ignored His laws and His mercy.

He holds responsible those who do have the understanding of His ways, and do not do what they can to turn things around. Those who live in fear of these people, are considered just as bad as they are.

He is waiting for those who know Him to fully turn to Him.

Deuteronomy 4:29-31
King James Version (KJV)
29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
31 (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

This beautiful classic poem needs no additional comments:

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

…I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,

When sorrow walked with me.

-Robert Browning Hamilton

Psalm 122:6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee

*******************************

Psalm 9:20
“Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”

*********************************

Psalms 19:20 KJV Cleanse Thou me from secret faults” Lord, You know my sins, faults and weaknesses better than I do. Please, cleanse any known or unknown sins within me. “Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.” Without You I am nothing.

Psalm 17:8-9
King James Version (KJV)

8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

Praise-God-through-hard-times


Ezekiel17” Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
