In today's modern church, as back in the apostle John's day, there are pastors who allow Jezebel and Balaam to speak from their pulpits, those who teach the sheep to eat things offered to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. They are sadly, far too many to count. This is all done under the guise of bringing in what they call "fresh water" in order to avoid what they call "spiritual stagnation." Spiritual stagnation is actually avoided by obeying God's word, and not by inviting Jezebel and Balaam in to your church to spew their idolatrous drivel. These charlatans who pass off their demonic manifestations as Holy Spirit giftings- are just sickening to me; the hurl factor is reaching toward the critical stage here. But instead of protesting, and turning up our noses to this sordid fodder, the masses of spiritually dumbed down and lawless sheep eat up this kind of sugar covered poison, and then hungrily bleat for more. I know... I shouldn't be jaded, after all the Bible does foretell that all of this will happen in the last days- so apparently it can't be stopped, but nevertheless, part of me can't help engaging in some bitter sarcasm.
This apostasy will only grow, taking with it, all those who love to have it so. These apostates love the world and it's material goods: music, toys, amusements, pagan holy-days, false religious unity, and false, or "paranormal" spirituality, also known as lying wonders. Well, as far as I'm concerned, they can have it-- ALL OF IT! Even though I have grown weary of looking for a genuine spirit filled church, that actually teaches and obeys all of God's word, and holds it as the only final authority, and even though it seems like I'm looking for a needle in a haystack, I must remember that God still keeps for himself a faithful remnant. Not only that, but he eventually brings them together, usually during a national crisis that has come upon the church as a whole, due to the refusal of its wayward members to repent for their wickedness. So I have decided to cling to that faithful and true promise! If there is anyone out there that is part of this righteous remnant, then please contact me a.s.a.p. so I can welcome the assembling of ourselves together in exhorting one another in the truth, especially since I see the Day of the Lord, is fast approaching! Amen.
