Millions of My children are subsisting off trash spiritual food instead of feasting on the pure meat of My Word. Lots of things appeal to their carnal appetite for excitement far more than My rightly divided Word of Truth, taught in correct context. That is the true spiritual meat which can make you strong. The weird heresies and questionable doctrines floating about Christian circles today are cheap baloney which passes itself off as the solid meat My children are to feed upon as they grow more mature in Christ. Scraps of twisted truths and half-baked imitation truths are pulverized to a pulp, till only the most spiritually blind believe they are the real gospel. Then these unhealthy ingredients are subtly seasoned with a grain of believable gospel salt, just a little. Then the whole mess is stretched with cheap, greasy filler ingredients to form an outwardly enticing well-rounded mass which requires little chewing and a lot of gullibility to swallow it down.
The false preacher will allow just enough religiousese to season his baloney gospel. Every now and then, just to retain his credibility, he might allow a non-offensive, watered-down presentation of the good news of Christ’s salvation to proceed from his pulpit, but he fattens up the bulk of his discourse with clever anecdotes and tall tales. The truly covetous preachers will “flesh out” their messages with carnal rhetoric designed to brainwash believers into thinking that endless repetition of “faith” (fake) formulas will make them richer, and thus more able to “be a blessing to God’s kingdom”. Where did My Son ever state that only people with money are able to be a blessing to the Kingdom of God? If anything, He taught that possession of material wealth could be more of a hindrance than a help. Money can very easily become an idol, sought after for its own sake, and viewed as a substitute god.
How sad, that whereas the original apostles of My Church preached a gospel filled with Holy Ghost power, with signs and wonders backing up their message, the best today’s carnal pastors can do is to post clever witticisms out on their billboard on the front lawn. Seven days without prayer does make one weak, but a lifetime of subsisting on poor substitutes for Spirit-empowered ministry makes a Christian spiritually anemic.
Once they mature out of the milk stage, Christians ought to be brought into a more complete knowledge of the wonders of Jesus Christ and His grace and love. Repentance from ongoing lapses into sin must be emphasized, because My children do occasionally falter and fail from the weaknesses of human flesh and their struggles with satan. The position of the believer in Christ as being secure in salvation through repentant faith ought to be emphasized more, and the believer’s status as a joint heir of all things with Jesus should be taught as well. Holiness and sobriety in daily living and dealing with others in wisdom and love must be taught.
Instead, I see one big party of unbridled emotionalism, primarily caused by and directed at preachers in the front who keep the crowd whipped up into a frenzy, hoping to profit thereby. My people are taught in many ways that earthly gain is godliness and that failure to accumulate wealth in this world is the measure of a spiritual failure.
Baloney! What rubbish My people are being indoctrinated with. My precious sheep are not only being sheared down to the skin, they’ve been milked dry as cash cows. The so-called light at the end of the tunnel prosperity preachers promise them is nothing but an oncoming train rushing at them to make a total wreck of their lives. The preacher fed them baloney, they believed it, and now it’s ruining their spiritual digestive system.
My people are being tantalized by bizarre teaching that they can take total control of earth’s governments in the here and now, and get them ready for Christ’s Second Coming so this sad, sick earth is already made holy for Him when He comes back. Baloney! This world’s political systems are sick head to toe. They are nothing but a necessary evil, allowed by Me because fallen man rejected Me as being their King and needs a firm hand to govern them till I return. I will come back to inaugurate the perfect Kingdom of God. I will not be taking over as “president” or “prime minister” of existing political systems of sinful mankind.
Scripture itself should teach you that it is useless to march around the city, singing and rebuking satan, hoping some sinner will be conquered and install you into government to keep My seat warm till I come back. I hate having to judge wicked men for sin, but when I return, a battle, quick but bloody, will need to be waged against the soldiers of the Antichrist in order for Me to take over the government of this earth. Only then will My thousand-year reign on earth commence. When I return, will I indeed find very much faith on the earth? That should tell you something about this strange new doctrine circulating, which holds that Christians need to “get militant” and “take the kingdom” so it can be immediately transferred over to Me by My servants. The Father Himself will hand over the keys of this earth’s kingdoms to me, it won’t be believers down on the earth doing it.
These silly plastic charms and appeal letters sent out by “men of god” make Me sick! My people are losing interest in My Word and instead reach out to quick-fix ABC formulas for their problems. They are told that if you sprinkle this salt or this dirt out of this tiny packet onto your biggest “gift” and send it in, I will pour out a fantastic blessing on you and your house. But it is Judas junk preachers who get the carnal money blessing, at least for the time being. I will end up turning these turncoat Judases upside down and shaking the thirty pieces of silver out of their suit jackets, and they will stand before My Judgment Throne cold, blind, and naked, exposed before saints and angels as the frauds and liars they truly are!
Meditate upon Scripture day and night, especially portions which teach you about letting Christ live in and through you as a believer. Take comfort and encouragement in My promises of provision and help in time of need, for I will never leave you nor forsake you, My dear children.
