If you say the Lord told you to highlight another man's faults -
While excusing your own -
My sister, God Aint Talkin To You
If you say God told me to say it - but your words do not heal -
My Brother, God Aint Talkin To You
If you say that God told you to speak life to your dreams
To name it and to claim it
Yet, to another - refraim it
God Aint Talkin' To You
If you believe that your best is yet to come
Yet, you speak failure to the dreams of another one -
God Aint Talkin To You.
This may be one of the most controversial writing that I may have posted onto this site.
Why? because it reminds me of the scripture where Jesus rebuked God's people for killing the prophets and calling it a service of God. What has happen to the church of the Lord Jesus Christ when politics, competition, and the likes overshadow the true meaning of what it means to be a Christian?
I am not writing this with vengeance or hurt or from the effects of a wounded spirit. I am writing this as a prophet of the Most High to say... Jerusalem, Jerusalem thou hast killed the prophets and considered it a work of God.
There may not have been a physical death - but at the words of Christians, many dreams that lie in the heart of another have died.
Many hopes to erase the shame of their past has been dashed by a constant reminder of who they were and not who they are!
By our words we are justified - and by our words we are condemned.
Father, I pray that their will be a corporate repentance throughout your house all over this land.
Forgive us all Lord for times that we may have harmlessly or with spiteful intention spoken ill of another and said in our hearts; there is no hope for them in God.
We call forth life to every dead dream. We call forth healing to every pain and hurt and we call forth a genuine repentance to fall in the houses of God that people may be able to come sick and leave whole. We decree it to be so and it is so - in Jesus Name.
As I tried to end this; my heart began to ache for those who have turned their backs on God due to falling prey at the mishandling of other.
Father, you said that you are married to the backslider. We call back every lost, rejected, offended and wounded sheep back into your fold right now in the name of Jesus. Bring them back into their rightful place Oh God and allow then to know the joy of your salvation.
Plant them in houses across this nation that has your mark on them. Provide them with spiritual guidance as they are drawn more to the things of you.
We call back every preacher that has turned away, every psalmist, every teacher, every youth worker that has turned away from you and we command that thing which is on the inside of them to come alive AGAIN! in the precious name of Jesus - Amen!
You are an excellent writer. Thanks a million for risking criticism in your writing. You have spoken honestly and forthright on a subject that has turned many from the church. I join you in prayer about this issue and say AMEN!!! Keep writing and I will keep reading.
All I can say is AMEN! I could not help but read the rest of the article with a "beat", the way you speak or remember a good sermon! Oh, how my heart aches when I see others hurt by "good christians" just trying to "cure them" of their ways! Lordy, lordy, save me from the self righteous! Indeed I will keep in mind the first part of your article and remember if the person isn't helping to heal the spirit, It Ain't God talkin!
Well, well, it's about time somebody said it. :::smile::: Seriously though, AMEN. I am in 100% agreement with you. I was one of the offended for so long and the healing was slow coming. But thank God, by grace, I've returned to the sheepfold. Now, if there's anything I can do to prevent it from happening to another...
