American-revolution

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” Acts 2:17

A change is about to take place in the modern church and it’s been one which has been long over due. Since the turn of the century the church has underwent a dramatic change in its belief system, its core values and its teachings. One would almost dare say that the church is almost a shadow of its former self these days. Especially in the past 100 years we’ve seen dynamic moves of God that literally changed whole Cities as well as nation’s. In the early 20th century some of the greatest moves of God took place which shook the foundations of the world. But nothing lasts forever.

The apostle Paul gave the church a glimpse into what was coming in the last days, “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.” (2 Timothy 4:3). From the implementation of the prosperity gospel to replacement theology, the church today is NOT what it used to be. Just what in the world is going on when the vast majority of Christians are no longer shocked to hear false teachings, or a play that depicts Jesus as a homosexual? Just what in the world is going on when that play is actually performed inside a packed church? The truth is that a huge number of churches have completely abandoned the Bible and have instead surrounded themselves with “pastors” and “priests” who will tell them whatever they want to hear. And its spreading.

Someone said to me recently, “You need to get off this kick!” As if denouncing sin and maintaining a certain level of standard was an evil thing? But I refused to denounce that statement because it was an elder, and Paul reminded us to always respect our elders, wrong or right, we treat them with love and kindness. But that doesn’t mean I respect their point of view. I recall some weeks ago, I was contacted by someone in a high position of spiritual authority, and that person told me every which way how I was wrong in my stance against sin and rebellion in the church. By the time I got done with the conversation I was beaten, thrown under the church bus, ripped to shreds of whatever dignity I had and felt like Jonah, find myself a juniper tree and just sit there and complain.

But God spoke to me almost immediately and asked me a simple question, “Are you going to obey what men tell you or are you going to obey me?” Simple enough wasn’t it? And just as quickly as my ego left and my body came back from the virtual beating I took, God reminded me that it was HE who called me into this office of the prophet and it was HE who demanded that I obey him and him alone. It was settled. Yes, since that time I have endured attacks from all sides, but this time I have an advantage, I’m not called by men, I’m called by God.

The hour is late and we are living in the last days my friends. Many of the large churches across America are another example of the rank apostasy plaguing the church in America. The truth is that the vast majority of “ministers”, “pastors” and “priests” currently “serving” in the United States should immediately resign. The truth is that the majority of churches in the United States should immediately close their doors in disgrace. The “church” in America is in an advanced state of apostasy. Very few churches in the United States ever preach about sin, judgment, heaven or hell anymore. Very few churches in the United States believe in the basic doctrines of Scripture anymore. That is why so many people are leaving these dead denominations. Nobody should sit there and listen to these jokers as they openly deny the Word of God. If you are sitting there in a dead, apostate church it is time to get out.

The popular “Woman thou art loosed” pastor TD Jakes stated recently that his opinion about homosexuality has evolved and evolving (source). Jakes goes on to further state that homosexuality is a complex issue. Now, how is that even possible? Does Pastor Jakes not read the Bible he claims to represent as a pastor? Has he not read 1 Corinthians 6:9? Or Romans 1:22-26? Has Pastor Jakes not searched the word to know when something is fundamentally wrong? Apparently not. The bigger issue is not so much about TD Jakes waffling on the issue of sin, but the church itself not calling him into accountability. But this is what happens when popular preachers who have a large following, combined with deep financial pockets can escape scrutiny, because no one wants to touch their favorite idol.

But it’s not just Jakes, it’s many of the popular mega-ministries such as TBN and Hillsong, where ironically pastor Brian Houston can’t even set the matter of his position on homosexuals straight. When men who are supposed to be pillars of the word cannot even speak openly and honestly of what their position is on social issues which have a genuine affect upon the church, then that man or woman has been compromised. They are incompetent.

Paul tells us in the word for us to “mark them” and expose them who teach and preach, leading many astray (Romans 16:17). The fact is, we condemn the preacher who advocates rebuke, yet we endorse and protect the spiritual criminal today who are fleecing the flock. It used to be that Christians knew sound doctrine when they heard it and shunned the false. But not so today. Today we have allowed dramatic flare, wealth and fame to blind our eyes. We have allowed a “celebrity” kind of Christianity to come into our midst and because we look the other way, we ignore the teachings, we wink and nod at the false all the while ignoring the dead bodies that are literally piling up almost daily from those who are being mislead at the hands of wolves in well tailored suits.

I’ve seen good men, preachers with substance, succumb to the pressures and glamour of Christian television, and betray their first command from the word, to preach the word without prejudice. How many preachers and prophets have sold out in these current days we live in merely for money, position and fame? To be seen and heard by thousands rather than to preach the word and let the chips fall where they may? Yet that apostate list continues to grow in number. A young preacher wants a cadillac, he wants fame, applause and the “hot” preacher girlfriend/wife, but at what price? Another sell out to the gospel of prosperity and self. The truth is, a revolution is coming and its near the door. Yes, we cannot change the path this world is heading down, but we sure can change the current path the church is heading on!

So what does that revolution look like? It’s exposing false preachers and pastors. it’s denouncing the rhetoric that is prevalent in the church world today which are leading multitudes astray. It’s calling the church back to holiness and a sanctified life. It’s preaching against sin. It’s calling us all back to the cross. Even if that means removing these reprobates out of the pulpit, so be it. There needs to be a spiritual awakening that must take place and I believe that we’re overdue for a correction. Remember, before God judges the world, he must first bring judgment to his church.

God is calling a people, free from the bonds of this world and he’s calling us to come out from among them and be ye separate. Yes, there is going to be a great falling away, and its only going to get worse, but does that mean that we must stand by and remain silent? Not a chance.

There is a divide taking place in the church right now and a line is being drawn. One faction wants purity, holiness, a Godly standard, while the other wants worldliness, secularism, socialistic Christianity and then there is the flat out apostate church that is growing at an enormous rate in the world. And that’s fine by me, for the word tells me that one day God is going to separate the wheat from the chaff and when he does, we will know for certain whose on the Lord side.

But until then, it’s business as usual. We are to expose the unfruitful works of darkness, expose the sin of worldliness, the continuing watering down of the word of God by Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Rick Warren, or Kenneth Copeland, as well as many others. A revolution needs to occur in the body of Christ to denounce sin in every shape and every form and preach the love of Christ to the world, but also warn of coming judgement.

We have allowed these men and women to have their say for too long and I for one don’t wish for one more day for these idiots to maintain their grip on God’s people. So I say let a Godly revolution arise and the church be the church once again! Yes, this will mean persecution like you have never seen before, but I believe when the revolution breaks out and people reject the false gospel of Joel and Rick and others, a shift will begin in the last days where sinners will actually feel convicted of their sins and not made to feel comfortable as they are currently.

A revolution is coming and I for one think it’s been way long overdue. I’ve got my gun locked and loaded — do you?

    could you please define “watering down” and why you would call them idiots?
