The Church Is Allowing Itself To Be Devoured

He roams the earth seeking whom he can devour.

Revelation 3:15-17

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 17‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,…

The Buckle of the Bible Belt is about to come undone.  The lawmakers of Tennessee actually passed a bill to name the State Book the Bible.  Of course I was excited then the reports came today that the Governor vetoed it.  He said that he didn’t want to belittle the Bible and also wanted to save the state of Tennessee money in the lawsuits that would ensue.  Even Christians applauded the Governor for his denial.  I talked to someone the other day  a little about the politics of the State of Tennessee, and we started by talking about the legislature voting down a bill to introduce Broadband internet through the Electric lines for the rural areas of the State that don’t receive it.  We were shocked that the small conservative state of Tennessee would cater to the big name corporations rather than the people, then the conversation quickly turned and they said “that’s because they are more worried about making the Bible the State Book, and  a state gun.”  Hello!  What????  I would much rather have God acknowledged and His word respected than a worldly internet.  Sounds a little like Hillary Clinton and Obama doesn’t it.  People think that when they say that Evangelicals are clinging to stale ideas of their Bible and their guns and are ignorant, they mean it.  When Hillary Clinton say’s that ideologies and structural biases have to be changed to bring about Abortion as a right, she meant it.

This person was indeed a Democrat and a devout church member,  if your wondering.  The Western Church has fallen headlong in the Great Falling Away.  And yes persecution does exist in this country and it’s going to get a whole lot worse.  Here is one comment on the Newspaper from Tennessee.  Read and tell me again how persecution of Christians will never happen in America.  And this is just one of hundreds!

(Comment on Governor vetoes Bible as State Book for Tennessee) Do the state of Tennessee a favor republicans/conservatives and go to Kentucky with those republicans and help build/fund that big ole Ark they are building and get inside and wait. WHEN are people going to learn what republicans are all about. Use religion to lower wages. Now I can prove that fact but lets move on and get some more Democrats in Tennessee to run for office.

The vitriolic comments surfacing toward Christians not only in this post but the posts and reports about allowing transgenders into the bathroom of their choosing also.

Men who identify as women into a women’s bathroom, and vice versa.  You want to see hatred and persecution read those comments.  I get it that a man dressed as a woman in a men’s bathroom would be a bit awkward and even dangerous.  But really?  Give them their own bathroom and be done.  Expose our children to the (in their own words) disorder that these have is an abomination.  We were born woman and man, not by choice, not by our choosing but by God’s choice.  If you choose to change this, it has consequences.  But they choose this.  Now there are reports saying that this is a disorder, even a disease, so why expose everyone to this disorder?  Causing dangers to others?

I get that they want rights, I even feel empathy for them, I feel love for them as Christ commanded us, but they are doing the same things that they accuse Christian Conservatives of doing to them, and that is shoving a belief down their throat.  Persecution of Christians have begun.  When states even have to consider protecting Pastors or small business owners from Lawsuits for practicing their belief, something is wrong.  And Obama knew full well the implications of what he changed in our Supreme Court when he abolished the Defense of  Marriage act.  Again, it pains me to write about this, as I do have a love for all.  But when is the rights of a few outweigh the rights of many?  When do you draw the line?

They have been recognized in Marriage, and spousal benefits, but that’s not enough, they want our livelihood, they want us to be shamed and our businesses ruined.  This is the mentality of many not just the LGBT community, the atheist community also.  Blaming Religion for all the worlds and the countries woes.  When in fact our woes come from ignoring our Constitution, and founding fathers who dedicated our Country to God.  Pushing God as far away as they can.  They have set out to destroy the Christian Community, and they won’t have to fire a shot.  They do it one church at a time, just as they have done.  One community at a time.  Satan’s big plan.

 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's field, God's building. 10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:8-11 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.

The Church in some areas has become very dark, and putrid.  Pastors calling each other names, attempting to ruin the reputation of others.  Yes, it is happening, and what better way for Satan to destroy the church than to infiltrate, confuse and divide.  It’s time to wake up.  The Wheat has been allowed to grow with the tares, until harvest so as not to disturb the good, but now the wheat and tares are being separated.  Focus on the times, focus on the suffering of our brethren, focus on Christ, as time is short.  If you attend a church that is Spirit filled you are blessed, support your Pastor, if you belong to a church that spends sermon time calling other pastors liars and ruining a reputation than run.  If your pastor gives lessons on how to go to social media and pick a battle with other Christians and call them out, than run.  This is not of God.  I listened to a Pastor’s Palm Sunday Service and the whole sermon was about how to rake someone over the coals on facebook, and how this was our duty as a Christian.  Really??? On Palm Sunday?  Or any Sunday??  God help us.

  1. This is extremely sad and maddening at the same time.

    This “church” system has “crucified CHRIST again, putting HIM+ to an open shame”. The Judgment upon the harlot religious system is going to be severe.

    The Anger of The LORD GOD is kindled against this church system. It is not acceptable to HIM in its present state. They call themselves “Christians” but have NO USE for CHRIST or for HIS+ Words, for HIS+ Commandments.

    “Not all who call ME+ Lord, Lord, will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but these who DO the WILL of MY+ FATHER in Heaven. Matthew 7 : 21.

    It is a frightening situation. How could professing Christians treat The SON of GOD like this? There is no excuse.

    Thank you for this very informative article Sister.
