“There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.” – Proverbs 30:12
America is so deceived. The Church, as a whole, is so deceived. We have rededicated and rededicated and rededicated ourselves to death! We love the world, live like the world, dress like the world, talk like the world, and then run to “Church” on Sunday morning and “Rededicate” ourselves to God with every intention of going right back to the garbage we love to live in. It’s blasphemy in the eyes of God. We have made a mockery of the house of God. We have polluted the Church with worldly garbage and expect God to bless it.
The Church doesn’t need Revival. The Church needs Holy Ghost CONVERSIONS to take place in the pews and behind the pulpits. People need to get John 3:3 BORN AGAIN. Not rededicated, and not pollute the altars with empty, shallow, professions, but to be CONVERTED to the point that they ARE CHANGED from the inside out!
This modern-day idea of Christianity is sickening, to say the least. The unbelievable deception that people are under is mind-blowing. The only thing that’s going to change this is the GOSPEL preached under a supernatural anointing from another world.
We can sugar coat it all we want, but we are in a mess. While we hang out on our cruises, play our golf, have our “sessions”, scratch the brethren’s back so we can fill our calendars, and walk around as if we are the “anointed one” for this generation, there is an entire generation sitting in our services that are blinded and bound for hell. They have religion but no relationship. They have a cheap, shallow, empty profession, but God has no idea who they are. He’s never known them.
While we climb the walls in our camp-meetings and shout the house down with our singing, people are raising dirty hands to a Holy God while their hearts are filled with sin. We leave a meeting bragging about “God” was there but in reality, we spent 3 days gathered together with our egotistical and pride-filled hearts, and did nothing but offer up vain babbling that was no more than sounding brass and tinkling cymbal.
We sing for an hour, shout for an hour, tell announcements for an hour, preach for 45 minutes, and pray for 30 seconds and we think we have had a move of God. God is sick of our hypocrisy and carnality.
Men gloat in themselves as being the “leaders” of our day. Men are idolized by others as being the “Elijah’s” of our day, yet they have a heart filled with gossip, unconfessed sin, bitterness, jealousy, and ego large enough to fill up the super-dome yet, that is the elite of our generation.
The reality is, we have and are operating in nothing but our flesh. Our prayer is empty, our praise is empty, our preaching is empty, we are EMPTY!
Can these bones live? Only God knows. What I do know is, we need God. Without HIM, we are DONE!
