All praise be to my Saviour Jesus The Christ.Blessings be to those who through the acceptance of Jesus become one with Him. This short flow of thoughts came to me after an extensive survey of the latest TV Ministries on TBN, The Word Network, and The Church Channel.
I noticed very quickly The Name of Jesus was not being mentioned or focused on in many of these Gospel based ministries. I won't say which ones because I'm not here to expose people but just a new trend I see going on. I call it "The New Church Order". The leader of it is SATAN and he works through high minded selfish people who leave open doors in their life to the Devil and his evil plans.What this is,(CHurch World Order) begins with the subtraction of the most powerful Name in the Holy Scriptures.(JESUS) In which one day every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that JESUS is LORD.
Then after the subtraction of JESUS, comes the subtraction of His teachings and His Mission. The plan would be to cut of the power source.(SATAN's goal) Then comes some addition. The addition of the preacher's fancy sermon title, their all to sexy voice, flashy clothes that are of the flesh, great music band, fine looking members(at least the pretty ones are the only ones that the cammera man shows over and over), and the addition of the New Age Worship style. Which is a mono-tonal repeating of small phrases or words the mc feels may induce some estatic, mind-boggling, rise of the emotions(flesh) which will end(If done in the right tone at the right volume) in a climatic explosion of music and dance(called shouting).
Oh what a service they said, what an anointing they said, and they said a bunch of other popular catch phrases people say because they are used to it more than the spirit leading them. You know like; "God is good all the time" and....Then the members say "and all the time God is good." Of course if you ask some who claim they had such a good time what was the title of todays sermon they won't know. Time won't allow me to discuss the over emphasis on gifts, money, houses, cars, women and men(now days ussually it ends up being someone elses husband or wife), or the under emphasis of seeking ye First the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you. But if I did, I would sum it all up by saying because of the subtraction of JESUS many room is left for SATAN to show his head.
Many wonder why The Power Of God is not as prevelant in many churches as it used to be. Jesus was the reason for the season back then. Jesus was the leader of the flock. Jesus was the gift people prayed for. Jesus was the one who's shoulder we cried on. Jesus was the reason we went to church in all that snow instead of staying home and overeating. Jesus was the central message. His teachings were shouted from the pulpits across America. The church was a place where people could go to to see a difference from the life of sin and death. The church was a place were you would be afraid to come in on sunday if you had been talking about people and running them down the night before on the phone.
What I am saying is I would be willing to trade in these false teacher's broken promises, weak teachings that give into the flesh, replacing of Christ with blessing plans, fancy retreats and conventions which turn into social mating zones, false ideas of worship, fleshy gospel songs, and this New Age mess, and I would trade it in and get on my knees and BEG God to forgive me for being side tracted and give me JESUS (PLEASE!)
