First I would like to say "May the Peace of God be with those who read this and recieve the message."
I write this message to the Men of the Body of Christ, called The Church. In my heart, very deep is a hurt for the direction the church is headed in many of our churches of today. I have prayed in my heart for this matter and have recieved one major reason for this problem. This is not for everybody and hasn't been written to take down anyone. This is for the upliftment and empowerment of The Brethren in Christ. Jesus has not ceased loving us, and therefore should be treated with love.
What greater love can we show Him other than living by faith. Faith without works is dead. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Jesus is the center of our Faith. Jesus is the substance of things hoped for. Jesus is the evidence of things not seen. I feel the biggest problem of the church is a placement problem. A growing majority of men in the church have taken a background role in the order of service to The Lord. I feel everyone has been blessed with a certain talent or gift by God. In our life we go through many experiences. Some of them are good and others are bad.
But these situations mold us and shape us. The toiling is what sharpens us, and it gets us ready to serve The Lord with all our strength. Men must be leaders again by our example. We were made in the image of God Himself, there is no time to be nervous. We must be what God intended us to be. We don't all have to make a run to the pulpit at once. There are many functions that are related to the gifts God has blessed us with. Most Men's gift won't be a on the pulpit gift. For some they will be behind the scenes but efective! God will bless you openly for what you've done secretly for The Lord. The Church is lacking Christian Male Leadership. It isn't good enough to pay your tithes and offerings if you are not going to live under the FULL Authority that God has placed on you.
I write this because there is a move by Satan Himself to take the power and God-given Authority from Christian Men in the Church. Look for the loudest most chaotic noise you see in the sanctuary. You will find a person not being what God intended for him to be in most cases. I tell you a truth; It isn't going to be easy! Study the life the Prophets lived, and The apostles. Study the types of people who went after them to try to silence the power they had by Proclaiming and Living The Word of God according to their gifts. Take a look at the types evil spirits in the people that tried to silence their walk in Christ. You will have to walk closer to Christ, when you make this type of commitment. The Devil doesn't want you to be a Spiritual go-getter. He wants you to be passive and sort of like King Ahab.(scared to make a move without worrying about people& the popular opinion of the day.)
The question is, "Who is willing to make this lifestyle change for The Gospel of Christ?"
Thats why I said "A message to Some", to "Those Who Recieve It."
God bless those who recieve this message of urgency. May your wells spring forth and overflow. In The Name of Jesus Christ--my personal Saviour.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
