As Jesus was teachings he quoted the prophet Isaiah, “This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far away from me”. Not much appears to have changed since those days in the visible religious world. My words are not aimed at the Church (the Spiritual house and body) but at the denominational systems that have slowly lead us into conformity with the world.
We are to be the light and salt of the world yet even our spirit filled buildings are chanting the mantra of tolerance to the world order. It is a spirit of deception that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die. It is a place where the soldiers of the Cross have been ordered to stand down and are most often engaged in fund raising.
My rant could go on for there is much to get indignant about but that is not my call today. The purpose of my cry is to awaken many of Gods people who have fallen asleep. To bring each person into individual accountability about their walk with the Lord. To short circuit the worlds roller coaster that they may exit the ride of endless striving for the temporary things of this life.
The war in heaven is not over, brothers and sisters. It is still ongoing, and the enemy wants our crowns. So we have a choice to make as a people and as individuals. The most foundational lesson of “Spirit School” is that the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost always give us choice. And They always honor it, … always. Even if we choose wrong, They will honor it. They are always waiting, patiently, for us to choose life… Always. So today if you will …. Humble yourself.
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”
