HAVE YOU EMBRACED ANOTHER GOSPEL?
A CALL TO REPENTANCE
Are you celebrating the life that Jesus gave you, or are you looking for Him to take you out of it? Are you redeeming the time to further His Kingdom? Or are you occupying a pew just saying "Get us out of here, Lord!"
It seems to me that far too many pastors, evangelists, and worship leaders are conditioning their congregations to live a defeated life instead of an overcoming life in Jesus. Let's sing another chorus of "Some glad morning when this life is over, I'll fly away..."
I hear too many pastors preach the soon return of Jesus, to take us out of this wicked world, and what a joyful day that will be! But do they really believe that? If they believe it's a glad morning when this life is over, why are they going to the doctors to try to prolong their life? If they really want Jesus to return to take them out of this world that they acknowledge is so wicked, why do they bring children into this wickedness? Why do they go deeper in debt to accumulate more things of this wicked world? Why do they contradict themselves in their sermonizing about an ALL Powerful God Who has given us authority in Christ, and then live like the devil has the upper hand in their lives and in the lives of their spectators?
They behave as if the only place the Hand of God can move is in their building, under their denomination, and in the designated time of their hours of service. In the meantime the rest of the world is going to Hell in a Hand Basket, and Good Riddance to bad rubbish when Jesus comes back.
Is that how Jesus commissioned His disciples to preach? Is that the Gospel? No, many pastors today are preaching another gospel than that which Jesus commanded to preach.
The Bible says "For God so loved the world..."
Jesus said "Mat 28:18 ...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
"Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:"
He commanded them to go out and preach the Gospel, and cast out demons and heal the sick and to proclaim that the Kingdom of God is at hand." Is your pastor teaching you how to do that? Is he equipping you, or is he sermonizing you with another gospel?
When Jesus told the disciples what the Last days were going to be like, He said this:
Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman (steward, caretaker) of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
"He would not have suffered his house to be broken up". This world is being broken up and those whom He has designated to be stewards and caretakers over the world (US Christians) have been convinced that we have no other choice but to allow it to be broken up. That is a lie. Jesus' warning (command) was not to allow it to be broken up.
Too many preachers, evangelists, prophets, teachers, worship leaders have embraced a CONCEPT of the Gospel, rather than the TRUTH of the Gospel. They have a form of godliness but deny the Power thereof.
That is part of the Great Falling Away. A large part of those in leadership are falling away from the Power and Commission of Christ, and giving ground to the enemy, speaking great swelling words, being admired for their ability to preach, but are murmuring and complaining about the way the world is going, and preaching things they don't even believe themselves, while generating income for their "services".
Jud 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
Yes, Jesus is Coming. We need to live like we believe it, and be about His Business when He returns. This world was created by God. He has called us to have dominion over it, not for the world to have dominion over us. He has called us to walk in His Authority. He has called us to be over comers.
This is the God I serve:
Jud 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
He has Dominion now. He has Power now. He's entrusted that to me, and to you, if you are in Christ.
Mat 24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
Get your priorities right. Seek First His Kingdom and His Righteousness.
"Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!"
Quit giving ground to the enemy!
2Ch 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.
Repent! The Kingdom of God is at hand!
