Dear Brothers and Sisters who lead big churches in America,
Leaving the truth out to avoid offending is a disaster. When it is wildly successful, it is an even greater disaster. Spurgeon said, “It is a very ill omen to hear a wicked world clap its hands and shout ‘Well done’ to a Christian man.” Even in Spurgeon’s time, the world rewarded preachers for compromise.
The original Twelve were bold. They preached letting the chips fall where they may. No wonder they did. God was confirming their message with signs and wonders. Not only that, their preaching produced new creations of great joy, peace, and power. Our message was once contagious, catching on like wildfire, but now we resort to slick marketing to get society to listen to us.
Truth dispensed in love under the anointing has never needed such inducements. It never will.
The Bible teaches preachers not to offend unnecessarily. But true vessels of God have always understood that their message would awaken fury in some men. They disregarded popularity and even personal safety. They understood the difference between fulfilling a calling and trying to build a career in ministry.
Today we see a great evil in America. Congregations will enrich, yea they will elevate to superstar status any speaker who can eloquently keep the rightful demands of God off their backs.
Someone like me can be easily dismissed. When you take aim at vastly successful, far-flung Christian enterprises, you are easily rejected. People will ask “how can you deny its effectiveness?” Or you hear them accuse saying, “You’re just being petty and jealous.”
But there are disturbing questions. Is it petty to point out that this “success” coincides with America’s fastest moral decline? Is it jealousy to say that atheism and paganism have accelerated even as celebrity Pastors boast of their impact? Is it possible that in cheapening the Gospel we have paid a steep price?
There is another question. What might have been if we would have only trusted the Holy Spirit? What if we had truly consulted and obeyed the One Who was sent to organize and direct the Church? What would we look like now?
Preaching the entire Gospel releases power. 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
Romans 1: 16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes…”
Why is the phrase “power of God” used in two verses that deal with the offense of the Gospel? Because it is the power of God that drives home truth, even when it offends.
Paul understood the plan behind the offense. As a top-flight intellectual, he was keenly aware of the God-designed offense of the Cross. He refused to rely on his formidable skill in debate, saying instead: “4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 2: 4-5
The American Church will face a day of reckoning with American culture. It is inevitable because the church and American culture will soon not be able to coexist. Our society has become an open sewer, a bastion of banality where madness has the microphone. We have the one message that should not be hidden or redacted.
With all my heart I believe it is not too late. But it is almost too late. I implore my brothers and sisters to repent. Let us present ourselves without reservation or hesitation to Almighty God.
The Pope showed Saint Francis the wealth of the Vatican. He said, “Well Francis, the church can no longer say ‘silver and gold have I none.’” Francis replied, “And neither can it say, “In the Name of Jesus rise up and walk.””
Likewise, fellow preachers, we can no longer say that churches aren’t growing or prospering. But neither can we say that we have delivered the witness to America that God intended—and that is the only thing that can turn the tide.April 17, 2019 at 7:22 am #13889Clu MonroeParticipant
2 Words given early morning 9/7/2018
1<sup>st </sup>Word – Started at about 2:45 am:
Verily, verily I say to the churches, you have been a thorn in my side, like Saul’s thorn, but this time I will yank it out. It puffs up, it infects.That’s why I must yank it out. There are those in my body who know Me. Who are longing to know Me. Who are and will by My grace carry on and be nurtured. These are My people. A good people created of a bad seed. The people who follow Me and truly want to know Me will have Me. I will bring them forth. They will be My people, and I will be their Lord. The “good” seed. I will separate the good seed from the bad.
The day is coming… It is coming. Woe to the “scribes and Pharisees” of this time. Be honest. Be honest. Follow your heart because I know what’s in your heart. I will trust none other.
Stopped at 3:08 am
The Lord reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.
From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.
The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.
2<sup>nd</sup> Word – Started at 3:22 am:
The day is coming when the good, My good people will have their hearts anchored in Me. And even though you jerk, tilt and reel in the turbulent seas, you will remain steady and upright because your heart is in Me as I am in you. I know the heart. It is what I desire. Purify it. Clean it. Purge it. Prepare it. It, the day is coming. I AM coming. I AM coming for pure hearts. Lift up your eyes. Lift up your pure hearts. Look for Me, not in vain, but in expectation. I delight in My pure ones, My pure hearted ones. It is not done; ‘it’ is coming.
Stopped: 3:33 am
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
Concerning the time that both words completed, i.e. 3:33, or 333, some interesting things I found and believe connect with these 2 words and them stopping right at 3:33: 333 = The Promise of Divine Completeness or Perfection. Or, Divine Completeness or Perfection to the 3rd power. Also, there are 27 books in the New Testament, which is 3x3x3 or completion to the 3rd power. Thus, 333 may represent completion of the Age of Grace represented by the New Testament! Which is what Jesus initiated (at age 33) when He said ‘It is finished’ (perfectly completed) on the cross! And right after the Age of Grace, the world and unbelievers will experience great tribulation. This Age of Grace has lasted about 2000 years. Also, Paul pleaded with the Lord 3 times for Him to remove his thorn. The Lord would not but instead, said to Paul:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. <sup> </sup>And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
To the body of Christ our Lord… for your pondering and discernment.July 16, 2019 at 5:17 pm #14658Ron McGatlinKeymaster
