This Weeks Message- (scripture taken from King James Version)
"THE CHURCH OF YESTERDAY"
with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this
untoward generation. Then they that gladly
received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three
thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly
in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and
signs were done by the apostles. And all
that believed were together, and had all things common; and sold their possessions and
goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the
temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and
singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as
should be saved. (Acts 2:40-47) And the multitude of them that believed were of one
heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that out of the things which he possessed
was his own; but they had all things common. And
with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and
great grace was upon them all. Neither was
there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold
them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the
apostles feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. (Acts 4:32-35)
simply amazes me how The
The problem with todays church and some leadership is their focus are on the wrong things! Todays church desires great wealth of material substance, while the church of yesterday desired great wealth of the heart, and OBTAINED IT! Todays church desires to be glorified while the church of yesterday sought ONLY to Glorify God. Todays church robs the poor of her substance, while yesterdays church supplied the poor by the Grace of God, her needs. Todays church has become a money making business, while yesterdays church sold their businesses and distributed money to the poor. Todays church preach what man desires to hear, while yesterdays church preached what God had commanded them to speak! Todays church say they love the Lord Jesus, while yesterdays church truly demonstrated their love. Todays church have difficulty surrendering ALL to Christ, while yesterdays church gave EVERYTHING to Him. Which of the two heart is right before the Lord? I believe the Lord would say to many in the church today as He did to the rich young ruler: ONE thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross and follow me. (Mark ) And just as the rich young ruler went away sorrowful, not willing to surrender even a portion of his wealth, so the same would be for many in the church today. For herts are more after the things of this world, than after te GIVER of all good things, Christ Jesus our Lord. Todays church is in NEED of Repentance, while yesterdays church from the heart did just that!
Yet, I tell you the time is coming and now is that the TRUE Church of today, will arise and become as The Church of Yesterday and the same prosperity that fell upon them, shall come upon the True church of today! Signs and wonders shall follow!
I love you all so very much. Have a blessed week in the Lord and remember: Whatever we do, do ALL for the GLORY of GOD, who ALONE is worthy of the GLORY and the PRAISE!
The Lord be with you this day and always! Shalom Uvracha (Peace and Blessings) ..
