The Church Has Fallen Asleep
So many Churches been built, so many called Pastors, sermons been preached in different dimensions, prayers been prayed and yet problems of how overcome sin keep increasing every single day, especially the so called Christians. The BIG question is why are all these happening? The simple answer is THE CHURCH HAS FALLEN ASLEEP (Matthew 13:25)
We gathered in churches to pray against the devil “Lucifer” and all we do is to shout with loud voice “Holy Ghost Fire, Fire, Fire”, we go home tired and exhausted and yet nothing happens, this is because we do not really know who this devil is, let alone how to overcome him. The devil is not scared because you shout Fire Fire Fire, this is someone who was able to persuade and pervert one-third of Angels of God in heaven – Revelation 12:4-9, 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Do you know what angels are made of? Check Psalm 104:4 “Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire” Angels are made spirits and were covered in flames of fire and yet Lucifer (Devil) was able to corrupt their Divine nature and convert them into demons, and we that called ourselves Christians thought we can overcome him by just screaming fire? Even those who were made with fire fell to his schemes, how much more you who are flesh and blood?
HOW TO OVERCOME THE ENEMY AND REAWAKE THE CHURCH
The strategy of the enemy will never change, in the garden of Eden, he used what was around man to destroy what was in man. When the devil attacks your finances, Its not because he needs your money, because Lucifer doesn’t spend money in the dark world, he doesn’t attack your marriage because he wants to marry your spouse, he doesn’t attack your car because he wants a new ride. When the devil attacks any of these things, its because he has realised your heart is connected to them so if he can touch them, then he can touch your heart and destroy you. The devil will always uses what is around you to get what is in you.
But Christians today are more mindful of what is around them, more than what is in them, we are more scared of loosing money than loosing our soul and that is why we can never overcome the devil, instead of setting our heart on fire through purity and righteousness, we are rather praying to set fire around our business, money, cars, future. It is pity on the Church, if the devil is able to capture our heart by making us live in sin, he has power over our physical materials.
If we must over come the enemy and save or re-awake the fallen church from his slumber, then these points must be observed:
Proverbs 4:23 says “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life”
Keeping something diligently is more like guarding it from any external influence but unfortunately, the Church today is seriously guarding physical materials and we have sold our soul so cheap to the devil, and that’s why we don’t care living in sin and immorality but we are scared of not getting a marriage partner, or not making a lot of money. We scream fire fire fire, whiles our heart is as cold as winter.
Uphold the Message of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ
We have neglected the messages that prepares people for the second coming Jesus Christ and all we talk about is how to make money and be prosperous on earth, and the more the messages of Repentance, Holiness, Fear of God, Heaven and Hell are neglected the more Sin increases, and the more sin increases, the more the Churches fall before Satan. The fallen Church will only be mindful of building an extravagant building with broken souls living in it and that is why there are Christians speaking in tongues in Church and yet addicted to all kinds of secret sins, and they will tell you “We are living under grace” as if grace is a license to sin.
Beware of Deception as a trend in Church
We have believed in this deception that there was God the father who was always angry at sin, and there is Jesus the Son who also smiling at sin and says. As long as you have your church’s membership record intact, you have a fat wallet to keep your pastor always smiling, you have a few bible verses you can memorise, a nice Voice to sing and a deep Voice to preach, you can do anything you want and live anyhow. The Church is in trouble.
Repent and ask God for forgiveness of Sin
He will still save those who want to be saved. This is a medium to spread and preach repentance message to all men, delivering them from the venom of Sin. Telling them to be more mindful of the sins that corrupt the soul, than the witch that stole their money, because if a witch can steal your money, its because it first corrupted your soul through sin.
A WORD TO THE CHURCH
Without Repentance, Revival is impossible and Noise making is inevitable.
