Helping struggling churches in remote areas
Urging missionaries and churches to stand
fast in the Last Days
THE CHURCH HOUSE
NOTHING WRONG "WITH" THE CHURCH BUT THERE IS
DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG "AT" THE CHURCH!
The devil will never be able to
rock the foundation of the Blood bought
Church! It is established by the only begotten Son
of God and purchased
by his blood!
1- WHY THERE
(1)- It was
purchased by sinless blood.
Acts 20:28- "Take
heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which
the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God,
which he hath purchased with his own blood."
(2)- God is it's founder.
the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in
Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call
upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:"
(3)- God's Word verifies it's origin.
Luke 21:33- "Heaven and
earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away." The Church
has a firm foundation which is verified by Holy Scripture! His word
declares in Matthew 16:18- "Upon
this rock I will build my Church".
SOMETHING WRONG "AT" THE CHURCH.
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG.
When people sit, service after service
without being saved!
When some gutless preacher stands to
present what he calls his sermon
and no mention of sin or repentance is made; it is no wonder we have so
many pews filled with hell bound church members!
bible tells us in Romans 10:17- "faith
hearing and hearing by the word
of God". Therefore
it seems there has to be a famine of the preaching of God's word or the
service is void of the convicting power of the Holy Spirit!
Amos 8:11- "behold the days
come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a
thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:"
1-Cor. 3:15- "If any
work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be
saved; yet so as by fire."
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG.
When church members feel comfortable with
sin! There are congregations that have pews filled with people who
barely managed to get saved but you can't prove it by the life they
(3)- THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG.
When there is no burden
for reaching the
world for Christ!
Matthew 22:9- "Go
therefore into the highways, and as many as ye
shall find, bid to the marriage". The Bridegroom is
Church is the Bride of Christ. The charge left to the
Church is to
invite sinners to the marriage of the Lamb.
(4)- THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG.
When the place of worship is desecrated by serving food in the church
Some preachers and congregations mistakenly thought
God told them to
build fellowship halls instead of soul winning stations! There are
three things in God's word concerning serving food in the
Church building. 1- Cor. 11:17 & 1- Cor. 11:22.
(1)- God is not happy with it.
(2)- Paul couldn't agree with it.
(3)- Scripture condemned it.
that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for
the better, but for the worse." Many
church services are nothing more than social clubs where you can get
Fed, Fooled and Fried!
ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God,
and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise
you in this? I praise you not."
If Pastors and Churches don't get back to preaching
like it is, to
people as they are; we are finished as far as having a Church that God
could recognize! We have watered it down to keep a carnal audience
comfortable and left out the convicting power of the Holy Spirit of God
to the point where many churches look like a diners club!
