Recently someone said to me “Oh, you go to the same church as [let’s say, Harry] does?”
I replied “No, I just visited that church once. They have church in the dark. I don’t like that.”
Harry replied “Yea, you need a flashlight to get around. I hated the old ways. I like the new ways.”
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it. Jeremiah 6:16-19
If you do not like the light now, then why would you want to go to Heaven where it is light?
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19
To attract CROWDS and to please the ungodly.
- don’t mention sin (because talking about sin and repentance is offensive)
- remodel the sanctuary to look like a night club or casino (turn down the lights and bring in the drinks)
- remove every cross inside and outside (because it is a reminder of Christ’s crucifixion for our sins)
- don’t give invitations to receive Christ (because it is too embarrassing)
People are too ashamed to make a public commitment to Christ or to separate themselves from the world, but the Bible says that this people will be left behind.
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Mark 8:38 and Luke 9:26
So now instead of having ‘ushers’ at the door to greet you, the churches have ‘bouncers’ who will throw you out if you dare to break any unspoken rule. Read the ‘thou shall not’s’ of church.
Church is no longer the House of God and a place of worship. It has become a ‘come as you are’ social club for itching ears. They are people looking for attention and to have others tell them how great they are. People looking to wrap themselves up in hopeful, feel good messages so no one has to feel any conviction or feel the need to repent for anything. Life for these people is about heaven on earth. They do not want Jesus to come because life is so good here. People want to wallow in their money, and fame, and worldly things. And no one has to be embarrassed by responding to an altar call because there is no altar call. Bring in the drinks and doughnuts, and in many places now this means BOOZE. Turn down the lights so that people cannot see or read a Bible. Turn up the music so that people cannot concentrate or focus on Jesus, or hear from God. Then after everyone is thoroughly in an empty state of mind brainwash people with doctrines of demons and messages that tickle the ears.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Our prayer here at Prophecies of Revelation is that this message and others we share will wake people up to the truth. Do not allow the devil to lure you into the mainstream organized religion trap.
