Wake Up Church
Disclaimer this blog is not directed to any particular person ,but if you fall into these categories lets get it right!!!!
Last week God placed it on my heart to talk about the church. From fear I didn't respond as quickly as ought to, but with prayer and repentance I will share with you some of things that God is calling for the church to become. As I look at the church now, I am deeply sadden by how many people don't truly know God. So many people in the church are lost, and are on there way to hell. God showed me how people are even beginning to give into seducing spirits. So many people in the church want people to think that they never did wrong. Its only a few people in the church making Jesus known ,other then themselves. Many are doing good deeds, but are unaware that their deeds don't save them a spot in Heaven. As I look at the church through my spiritual eyes many people are just going to church, but are not receiving anything. Many leaders are out to make their name great, before they proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many hearts are heavy right in the church and leave feeling worser than when they came in. As I look at the church, I see fashion but I don't see holiness. I see lost souls even in the pulpit. Many are being deceived that they are more than they are.. I see many getting engaged and married because they are in heat...not in love! I see singers in the church singing now for fame, other than Jesus name. Many are shouting and speaking in tongues , but are still bond. The church has many people willing to go out into the communities witnessing, but I don't see the same people showing compassion to people that they see daily. As God begin opening up my eyes to the things that are taking place in the church, he also told me that there was hope. Many of you are reading this and think you have failed God, but God wants the church to know that there is hope! God is calling for people to wake up! Some of you have your eyes open but your heart is close. You always want a feel good message, but not a message to convict you. God is calling for people to seek him. Many things are taking place in the world , are happening because we are not putting God where belong. We as Christians must acknowledge God always. Some believe just by saying to God be the Glory, you have acknowledged God...but God gets the glory through your deeds and actions. The problem now with the church is that we are trying to blend in with the world. So many people in the world can't tell some of you are pastors, missionaries, evangelist, and leaders in the church apart because you go everywhere they go. Some of think you are reaching them but, you are losing your witness. We as the church should always stand out! We as Christians should be living a lifestyle so that idol worshippers and atheist want to know about our God! We should get back to loving our brothers and our sisters. We as a church should not slander our brother or sister when they are down, but uplift them and encourage them to do right. We are the people who God is calling for to live holy and upright! We can't engage in foolish talk nor behavior. Many of you only post pictures of yourself, your house, your money, your car, and kids...but where is the word! Some of you in the church are even running from your calling. God is calling for his people to seek him and hunger for righteousness. Its not about you being seen, its all about God being known. Many of you and I know I have spent hours of the day on social media, but God is calling for us to STUDY his word. Two years ago Dylann Roof went into a church and killed 9 people. This should have been a wake up to church, but some are still playing games. We have to spend time in God's presence to hear the things that he is revealing. If the church doesn't take heed to what God says, we are prone to a massive destruction! It's so many church goers but not a lot of people who actually know and live for the Father. We must wake up, and hear what God is requiring from us . The enemy is running rapid, because we as the church are not doing our part. We are getting to carnal in materialistic possessions, self fame, secular music, shows on the tv..but God is calling for us to rise up and seek him! We cant find out our gifts, talents, and personality by taking a horoscope test! If we truly want to know what God has placed on the inside of us we must get back to the word of GOD, FOR THIS IS TRUE! In conclusion God is calling for the church to wake up.. Maybe you haven't been doing everything that God is calling for you to do, but if you are Godly sorry and ready for change...you will see change! Don't just go to church, be the Church!!! Let your light Shine everywhere, for you are a Christ Representer!
