How is it possible to be a Christian, to see what the early church in Acts was like and yet be powerless in the year 2016?
Most believers are content to go have a “soul lifting,” feel good worship service and then go back to their routine the rest of the week and then… go back and do the same thing over again, week after week after week.
They never see lives changed or the Bible alive in their life or the lives of those they pray for. They have repented of their sins, accepted Jesus Christ and some have even been baptized, but what is lacking, that they don’t seem to DO the works that Jesus said we would do “and greater?”
Jesus was recorded saying it in the Gospels…
John 14:12 12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Mark 16:18 “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
I’m really not astounded in the increase of “false teachings and false doctrines,” but I am nonetheless tired of it!
I’m tired of those who claim the name of Jesus and yet have tried to “ignore and redefine” the Word of God by accepting false teachings.
I’m even tired of those who claim they walk in faith and yet have more faith in doctors than they do in Jesus Christ for their healing needs.
I’m tired, tired, tired of everything that deviates from the truth in Christ!
I’m not weary in well doing though. Otherwise, I’d just sit down and throw ashes on my head.
For those of us who believe every single Word God has spoken, there is ONLY great blessings to walk in now and in the future!
Yeah, yeah… Jesus is coming back soon. What does that mean? My friend and band mate from Mustard Seed Faith use to say that when we saw something that people were oblivious too or just didn’t care about anymore.
It basically meant, “who cares,” let’s just pretend like we never saw it and move on with our lives.
That’s what most people are doing and many Christians are too, but that day will be here and then no one will say, “Pass the ketchup.”
