Enemies of the cross 2
Not For Sale
Enemies of the Cross 1
Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. (Ecclesiastes 5:1-2 KJV)
When we go in to the house of God at all times and in all circumstance, we should be reverent. Even the ‘housekeeping’ crew should have the utmost respect and reverence on days with no services. Not because of a physical building, for the true “church” is within us who are ready to meet Christ when He comes in the pre-millennial rapture; but because of the reason it was built and because of what goes on in it, if it is actually ‘as unto the Lord’ and not just a bunch of manmade garbage.
As we enter in to a place of true worship, we also must obey the Word of the Lord and its commands, ordinances and rules; else we receive little or no blessing and as well could bring curses upon ourselves easily. If we look back at Cain when he offered up his sacrifice which was the “fruit of the ground” rather than the required, commanded and asked for offering, he actually offered a sacrifice of ‘fools’.
Any one single person, in a church or a group of people in a church or the entire church for that matter, who offer anything other than what is required, asked or commanded - then that place is not a true church or worship it is a building full of or may we say here, a house of fools.
A message, a song, a sermon, a prayer as well as the taking of communion – any of these things that are performed, and not done so according to the Word of the lord, makes the doers to become cursed and damned which makes them enemies of the cross.
(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) (Philippians 3:18-19 KJV)
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
(1 Corinthians 11:26-30 KJV)
As I sat and watched a so called communion service a few weeks ago, the woman leader had a cup in her hands (chalice). She also had a communion wafer and was calling people to come and partake of the Lord’s Table. She called one, she called all, she called transgendered, she called lesbian and homosexuals, she called those with sin in their lives of any kind to come and as you drink you will be cleansed….ENEMIES OF THE CROSS, what she was doing was causing people to be cursed and damned and this carries an eternal consequence because these folk certainly were not saved by the Blood and trusting in Christ – they have false religion based on a poor sacrifice being offered and as Cain – their countenance will fall.
Next we can go to many churches around the world as well as your own home town or maybe the very one you are sitting in now – we can find hillsong music as well as other foolishness, Damon Thompson and his lies or we can find rock bands(Christians so called), we can find gay, lesbian and transgendered ministers, we can find the smokers corner, statue worshipers, ring kissers, ceremonial zombies who act out church as if it were a staged play and then leave, never having changed or been blessed at all….ENEMIES OF THE CROSS
You can go in some and find motivational speakers, you can find those who say that Jesus was raped by twelve roman soldiers, that Jesus was homosexual, that Jesus was married, that David and Jonathan were lovers of a homosexual nature, that Jesus died demon possessed on the cross, burned in hell for three days, was trampled under foot by Satan and his minions. You can find that God is a genderless or female being, and the same about the Holy Spirit. You can find the “gospel of Judith Christ”,..!
You can find angel feathers, gold dust, gold teeth, diamonds, emeralds and more in the church pews or manna falling from the ceiling…..you can find….ENEMIES OF THE CROSS
“Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.”
For the most part in ALL modern day churches and denominations you will find, and be surrounded by ‘fools’ and ENEMIES OF THE CROSS!
No respect, no love, no Joy, no truth, no altar calls,
It amazes me how many of the people I went to Bible College with, including the professors, that have turned and become...…ENEMIES OF THE CROSS
We were taught right, we heard right, we sang right – and yet now 60% of the people I know or knew have gone astray and either do not go to church, they are drunks or harlots and they are teaching their children garbage. The ones who are in supposed spiritual leadership positions are off into every false prophet you can find, looking for another of Karl Strader’s demons or whatever the case may be….somewhere in Auburndale or Ignited in Lakeland….or maybe at the ‘healing places’ in Baton Rouge….as well as many other spots around the globe…..like Alabama or maybe florida…
It amazes me how many ‘fools’ I actually know and how many…ENEMIES OF THE CROSS are out there…..I am saddened.
I will lastly say this here and now, anyone who is an ENEMY OF THE CROSS is also my ENEMY! Anyone who is against the Message of the Cross is my ENEMY also. I speak NOT of those who have not heard it or who are willing but I speak of those who will against it and as I read yesterday someone said that it is more than one event or more than the Cross.
No It Is Not!
People go against a message because of who speaks it at times, which simply means that they have not chosen to forgive and unforgiveness leads to hell!
