That’s it. That’s enough for me, I’ve really had enough of this kind of thing. I’m confronting an issue many of you have had with Churchy-Christians. That Is: Unkind Words, Repeated Unanswered Phone Calls and Texts.
After an awful lot of this in recent years, I sent a Text to the last Offender I will ever put up with again. It reads:
“This will make you happy. You can delete my Nb if you wish. Just don’t worry about it. I almost broke the other day from repetitions of this kind of thing. Christians have been used to almost decimate my Faith in Christianity at times with their heartless communications. I thought you were more mature.”
My Honesty was then Misconstrued.
She texted these words back to me: You deliberately guilt people into answering the phone. Your texts and conversations are full of manipulative strategies/language.…
You mean I
can give as I please and feel Free in my heart? “Yes you Can” We will
look at Giving with Gladness instead of sadness.
actually New Testament Scriptural… We will actually see what JESUS said And
Early Believers Did. You can say “NO” to Church demands & TV
Programs And have the JOY of GIVING Restored to You!!!
3 TIMES! The
Holy Spirit has given me leading in this Area – including Tithes – through the
years. In the 80’s, the 90’s and the last time was in 2012, so I thoroughly
Researched it. I had the Bible Verses….and so I sought to find out “Did
the Early Believers Tithe?”….and I think you will be as surprised as I
was where Christians Tithing Today actually originated from.
I let you
know my findings here. I just knew the Holy Spirit could not be wrong.…
BECOMING HIS BODY of BELIEVERS AGAIN – FUNCTIONING AS A FAMILY! Make your own decisions how you can best do this.
Most Church Services Are Making Christians Spiritually Weak Because There’s No Interaction And The Presence Of God Becomes Something Of Second Importance. In Fact, Most Modern Day Services Are Devoid Of His Presence Because Their Practices Grieve The Holy Spirit. Neither Will Ever Change Lives – They Quench The Moving Of The Spirit Of God. That’s Right, That’s What Most Services Do. Sorry But It’s True. They Will Not Help You Grow Spiritually Like Personal Time Spent In His Presence And Prayer-Reading Scriptures. Also, It’s In Applying Them In Our Daily Lives That We Grow.
Top This Up With “Gatherings of Two or Three” and Family Worship At Home, You Have A Real Pattern For Growth.…
IN THE BODY OF CHRIST – EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS
Many Of Us Have Been Reaching Out For More In Recent Years Hey?
Some For Decades, Because Years Ago We Were Expecting Things To Change. Is That Right? This Address Will Let You Know Why We Have Not Seen Those Changes Yet – A Real Move Of His Spirit In Our Midst – Healings And Miracles – Signs And Wonders!
Have you wondered why these things are not here yet? Does The Lord lead us down the garden path? Why has He Commenced to MOVE in Some Places and Not in Others? Let me share some Insights with you.
Many Christians are so Immature in Communicating – they have an “Insiders and Outsiders” mentality. You are either In their Click or Not, you make it or you don’t with them.…
Concerning Past, Present and Future – You Should Read This!
I can see the need for Radical Change in How we Fellowship as Christians.
Pastors and Evangelists are still trying to Save the Church Model that has existed for Centuries now since Constantine changed things in 300AD. He had No Right to do that – he was not an Apostle or Father in the Fath, he was the opposite, a Roman Emperor. Do not suppose and many do that he was a friend of Christianity because that was the Enemy’s Next Move to Stop the Church after Persecution did not work – Christians and Ministries alike are Still Ignorant of That.
Governments across the World have been getting quite demanding with their Political Correctness and other Agendas in recent years as to what you can say in Church. And already, many Pastors have Compromised the GOSPEL of CHRIST for SOCIAL GOSPEL…….Never…
Where are the Tares Jesus spoke of in the kingdom parable? Right in the Church Scene Today! The Lord spoke of Wheat and Tares, and that both would grow together until the End of the Age. Then at that time, they would be separated and the Righteous would Shine like their Father. I want to do that, do you?
I’ve had this concern for many months now, so I have carried this message in my spirit for about three years before writing it. There are important things that must be addressed by all of us – like it or not. Many Christians are desperately hurting because of behavior patterns of immature Christians AND Tares (people who profess to be Christians and are not).
They go to Church and do some things that are accepted to be Christian but some of their behaviour and lifestyle indicates that they are not True Christians and even those in the world many times, can recognize that “they are not good people” – they are not portraying Jesus to them.…
This is for everyone to read because there are vital things left out when we found The Lord that help to make a Foundation to our lives in Christ Jesus.
Most of us found Him through the church system and many through a Christian TV program with a one minute Salvation Prayer at the end of it – yes it’s often rushed and on comes the next program, when you have just closed your eyes to pray (usually for the first time) the interruption is so sudden.
Many of us have been introduced to a Church Jesus, with things pertaining to their church, they add to your experience; many have been introduced to a Social Gospel where the scriptural need for Repentance – a change of heart where you decide to go Jesus’ way instead of your own way is left out; the cleansing Blood of Jesus with the Joy of sins forgiven (those things we have done that offend God).
This is a busy Day and Age we are living in with many distractions from
day to day. Many of us fail to function our best as a family……. and when it comes to functioning as The Lord’s family – be it a church or house church, pressures abound in this stressful time, and it takes a lot of time keeping up with family and commitments. Scripture says, that’s when we need to “fellowship all the more as the Day of The Lord draws near”.
Church should not be something that makes you dry
it should impart life and inspire.
Also, it should be a place of participation where
everyone is involved in some way
we are not subordinate or stifled
we are not spectators or entertained.
Scripture says that Apostles and Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists and Teachers
are of His making, not man’s (selected in Bible Colleges).
This post was partly inspired by an article I read today
PEACE IN THE MIDST OF STRESS
It was only a short article but inspired me immensely.
Then I took a different direction that compliments.
Please take time to read this.
Stress is prevalent in our world today, but there is a way to handle stress without turning to addictions and other things. Internal peace can be found through Jesus even in the midst of stressful circumstances. (1)
In this world, common ways to cope with stress in recent year have been through addictions such as over-drinking, over-partying, over-eating, over-shopping, over-spending, over-accumulating, over-working, etc. ever on the increase, effecting many hearts and lives. (2)
I feel such compassion for children in families who are caught up in these kinds of environments because in one way or another, they are affected. I feel for elderly people too, because they see such a different world and the situations many of their families are in that are radically different to the stress they are familiar with.…
Most Christians want to please The Lord and many of us have a heart for giving. It is also true that preachers often cause distress in the heart and mind of well meaning Christians, asking more and more….demanding to pay ‘the tithe’ and televangelists top this up with bribes for offerings, saying The Lord will give you this if you give Him that?
Does God tell us to pay for our blessings? Is He reintroducing His laws
with Israel? In what way should we be generous with our giving?
Certainly not to break our pockets and experience so much stress.
The New Testament no-where commands, or even recommends, that Christians submit to a legalistic tithe system. The New Testament nowhere designates a percentage of income a person should set aside,
but only says gifts should be “in keeping with income” (what you can afford).…
