REPROVE AND REBUKE
Before the church can be purified, God must judge those who have led the church in an impure direction. Instead of building a true church, many are building ministries as showcases for their talents, programs to perpetuate budgets,
and entertainment to gain crowds and notoriety. It’s here. Many are feeling it. Churches are closing and men are scrambling to salvage what they can to keep their ministries alive… but in the spirit many see “ICHABOD” scrawled in blood across the doors of these ministries. God is no longer in it. The time for repentance for these men and women is NOW.
The very apostles, prophets, pastors, and teachers they have silenced out of pride and fear of competition will take their rightful place after the purge. Those who have been shaken, set aside, and tormented by the spirit of religion will be the very ones to dismantle this spirit and re-establish the church the way God designed it. The spirit has already started… the world is feeling the tremors. As many fall, many more who were in the background will rise. Only those who are under judgement and deeply repent will be risen along with the others from their knees. The rest will be struck down. God is not pleased with the shows, the programs, and the jostling for position. He is no longer looking for a silent and apathetic church.
Many of you will be angry at me reading this… how dare she? How dare I? Ask God. I no longer care about what mere men say about me. I weep at what He has shown me… the hours of emotional pleading prayers he doesn’t hear… because you have set others before Him in your heart. You have cast out and cast down those sent to you and entrusted to you. If you are a minister, this should set fear deep in your spirit… a fear that should drive you to your knees!!!
“The battle for the culture will be won in the pews. Judgment must first begin in the house of God.
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:2
Reprove and rebuke. Those are harsh words. They infer correction and judgment.
Paul preached “Christ Crucified.” We should do the same.”
