Hebrews 12:5-8 –
“and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons,
‘My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor faint when you are reproved by Him;
For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines,
And He scourges every son whom He receives.’
It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.” ~ ~ ~
Psalm 111:10 –
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments;
His praise endures forever.”
I’m sensing we have reached the point in time, particularly in “the Western World” where our lukewarm, superficial form of “Christianity” (that I call “churchianity”) MUST be shaken, with the discipline of the Heavenly Father, or MOST will not be entering into the Kingdom of Heaven!!!
He LOVES us way too much to allow us as a group to continue meeting in buildings on Sunday, where music productions are so similar to what is seen on stage at worldly concerts, that by mere glance it looks the same. . . lights, camera, action!!!
The “messages” being shared are “seeker-friendly” and terms such as “hurts, habits and hangups” are used, rather than SIN. Where the focus is “be all you can be, while being happy” is the message, rather than REPENT and BE CLEAN AND HOLY BEFORE A HOLY GOD!!
Many are the “boards” of the Churchianity Corporations who are concerned with the number of people filling up the padded chairs on Sunday and with the amount of money being donated to fund the “building projects” . . . while the homeless in the local area would not be welcomed into the Sunday pride palaces that preach profits of gain with worldly focus, rather than “share in the sufferings of Christ”.
WOE, WOE, WOE to the wolves in sheep’s clothing, who do NOT prepare the people given to them, for the coming of the LORD Jesus. They do NOT preach the Full Gospel of Jesus Christ, but rather a watered-down, cotton candy, feel good message, that superfical lukewarm people LOVE to hear.
WOE, WOE, WOE to the lukewarm, self-seeking, superficial “Christian” (I call “churchian”) who does not have JESUS as their LORD and Savior, but only a false pretence of “religion”, yet claims to be a “Christian”. Who seek the cotton candy, feel good, “woo-hoo, breakthrough” ear-tickling messages, that endorses the very sin that enslaves them: SELF and PRIDE.
Proverbs 16:18 – “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.”
Without the massive shaking . . . the discipline of the LORD that is unfolding . . . . MOST would be facing eternal torment in the lake of fire and that includes MOST professing Christians in the Western World today.
Hebrews 12:25-29 –
“See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven. And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.” This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.”
