I am fed up with the status quot, type of Christianity today that is quite prevalent. We have
not been the light to this culture as we should have been. All day long the unsaved tell
they are seeing the word if God being completed our headlines, they see the wrath about
to fall, they are looking for the way. We the people of God know that way, but we are
ineffective in conveying the truth, because we are in a deep sleep, relaxed in our religious
The world sees what is happening in the decay of the family unit, the scarcity of jobs.
The increase of violence. And the world as it was in the days of Noah. They are now
ready for the truth. They knock at the doors of the house of God ,but few answer because
few want to get out of bed, to answer the knock.
We are like Jesus in the cabin sleeping, as the world plays the part of the disciples trying
to wake us up, so our God can calm the storm for them.
Jesus got up to speak to the wind and the waves, and brought peace to the tempest. He
wants to do the same thing through his people today, but we refuse to acknowledge the
storm exist, we rather sleep in Zion, then answer the cry of the dying want to be saved.
The unsaved comes among looking for answers and they see us impersonate the
Pharisees, in secularized rituals. They see the fall of the Earthly kingdom around them, as
we mimic the dying world that they want to be saved from.
Instead of living by the eternal life that is to live by intimate knowledge of the savior, and
God the father who sent him John 17:3.
We are called to branches on the vine of Christ be we have forsaken ,that for degrees on
Abraham's life stands as a testimony against the Church system today. He was raised in a
land that worshipped the Gods of fire and light. The were no religious institutions to tell
him of his creator, all he had was to testimony of the creation mentioned in Romans
1:19'20, and he knew there was a God that he needed to seek. He sought for his God
diligently, and God blessed him by revealing himself. Abraham had only a voice in the
wind, but he knew it was God, he heard ,and he obeyed.
Today we have the combined testimonies of the creation, the law of Moses, the writings
of the prophets, the testimony of Jesus himself recorded in the Gospels, and the teaching
of the Holy Apostles. We are more accountable than ever because of all we have been
blessed with, but we have lost the intimacy that Abraham had with God.
We claim to be led by the Spirit ,but Abraham truly was. We marvel at the exploits of the
great heroes of faith, but fail to relaxed that they lived before the bible was completed,
they did exploits because they knew their God, we are ineffective because we do not. Our
spiritual intimacy has been replaced with knowledge. Has this made us better, or has it
made like the Pharisees who Christ rebuked saying "you study the scriptures and you
think in them you have eternal life and they are the very things that testify of me. The
knowledge of those religious men blinded them, so they could not see the Glory of their
God in flesh form.
The Christ came to bring us not information but in intimate relationship with our creator
through the sacrifice of his cross.
Death burial of Christ gives us life, the information of the bible brings us accountability,
for our sin, the Spirit of Life in Christ sets us free from sin ,and death
