Infested Infected And Outnumbered

There may not be any disappointment in heaven but there's going to be a whole lot of surprise because Jesus said, “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. Mat. 7: 21-23
22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.
23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.
Of course the people to whom this applies are so self-deceived they won't know this is referring to them until it’s too late. God ain't playin. He is about to separate the wheat from the tares.
Just before Jesus dropped this heavy revvy, He talked about how we can tell what's what and who's who. Here is what he said starting in Mat. 7:15-20 "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
I generally to lean toward the side of grace and mercy, however for those who want to forget that this is actually in the bible, here’s a reminder in black and white and red. No amount of grace can erase it. As a matter of fact, Jesus also said,"...Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law till all be fulfilled." God helps those who help themselves and this message could not be clearer for those who have ears to hear.
Of course we know that God is our ultimate judge, but the Word and the Holy Ghost is in perfect harmony with the Father. By them we are judged daily in deed, spirit and consciousness. That’s what John 16: 8-11 means by the passage, “And when He (the Holy Ghost) is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. We are judged, we are being judged and we shall be judged.
What we have here is an earthborn mess. One that we try to pass off as consecration, commitment and relevant. But Christianity has become a big, fat, crock-pot of hot dung, cooked up in the kitchen of denominational scrubs and non-denominational needy wannabees. They have invented a fleshy, faddish, faked-up, hinky, pop culture Christianity with its own low life leadership to protect its status quo.
This is an artificial tribe; pseudo -Christian ministry perpetrators aggressively protecting ecclesiastic commercialism of the gospel while they bastardize innocent souls. Far too many churches and ministries are stuck in simple old fashion, ‘I'll rub your back and you rub mine’ arrangements. It is an ungodly intercourse between consenting soulish harlots conspiring in secret to bamboozle the sincere but blind multitudes of callowed crowds.
Touting titles as if they were birth names, their walk and their talk are diametrically opposed. Their perversion of the gospel ministry has birthed a category of ministers and so-called spiritual leaders whose stock is worth nothing to the Kingdom of God. They behave more like the double agents of a Bond movie. Mercenaries they are, who sell themselves to the highest bidder.Their only legacy to the body of Christ is the birthing of other schizophrenic spiritual personalities. These ministry Frankensteins exercise a spirituality that vacillates between a watered-down, weak, leaky, merry-go-round, roller coaster of religious carnality; a purely manufactured culture of spiritual pretense in every way from tongues to teaching.
Tongues and teaching are both credible spiritual practices but the copies of them have officially outnumbered the originals.
The few of us who have the audacity to even discuss the reality of this lobotomized sacrilege that has invaded the church and infected the Kingdom are nearly castrated for daring to challenge its perpetrators. Their authority has been revealed as phonies. They are truth benders, pretenders and crafty word handlers, practicing a holographic religiosity that the scriptures warn us of. Mark 13:22 says, “For false Christ’s and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”
Wow. The Word of God says that even the truly called, chosen and anointed, the elect, if you will, may be subject to their seductive powers.
These seducers have orchestrated the greatest crime of all time. The sly and barely perceptible theft of the five-fold ministry titles.
The only thing that the God’s remnant can do to thwart this subterfuge is to be so real that the fakes become obvious to the discerning soul. This is the dilemma of the end times for God’s people, however we cannot sleep. We must redeem the time. We must work while it is day. We must destroy the works of darkness. This invasion of the church and the cancerous infection of pride, flesh and falsehood in God’s Kingdom on the earth must re-invigorate us.
We must seek to love God more. It’s up to us to raise the standard of holiness and to accept nothing less. We must teach the rightly divided Word. We must be unafraid to rebuke, reprove and correct where we have the authority to do so. We must stand strong against the blatant breach of trust that has wounded the cause of Christ in the world.
And finally we must be sensitive to the Holy Spirit to live in a manner that is worthy of this great calling wherewith we’ve been called. The times demand that we serve God’s people honorably. Our testimony begs us to love and care for the saints with sincerity of heart without the love of money and power. The Word commands us to handle the Word of God honestly. When we have done these things we will be able to break the death grip of carnal chains on the minds of God’s people. – Pastor Joe Flores
