Time grows very short for this world. I'd like to address so called christianity today. When someone calls themself a "christian" what does that really mean? A "christian" we are told is someone who follows christ, thus a christ-ian. Here's the million dollar question though.....WHICH CHRIST? Matt 24:5 For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. When the anti-christ shows up, guess what his followers will be? Christ-ians, the anti-christ is still a christ is he not? Especially today there are many different "christs" in the world. There's the warrior christ many follow today. These so called christians cannot spill blood fast enough in the middle east. There's the get rich christ. Followers of this christ believe that worldly wealth is the path to heaven. There's the social/religious christ. Followers of this christ believe it's enough to be a good person, to be "serviced" like my car at a jiffy lube on wednesday and sundays and trust their "pastor"/hired hand to lead them into the promised land. There's the nicolaitan christ, this one seems to be most popular today. The nicolaitan christ fits in perfectly with this world. The nicolaitan christ is kind of hard to figure out for most peons in the nicolaitan system, which is why they need "pastors" and "christian scholars" to figure things out for them. Once the "christian scholars" figure something out, they write it down somewhere for the various hired hand pastors so they can explain things to the unwashed masses. How is the Word of God revealed to man, through "christian scholars" or by the Holy Spirit? Never mind the fact that the real Son of God says He HATES the deeds and practices of the nicolaitans...The nicolaitan christ works really well for pretty much 99% of apostianity today! There are other so called christs who produce so called christians in the world. Around 85% of people in the US call themselves "christians," that means about 8 out of 10 people, yet wickedness walks more freely among us than it EVER has, how does that jive? The false pastors and today's false christians are bathed in gold and blood. They look like the world, they speak from the viewpoint of the world, they live like the world (minus the christian jargon they throw around and the social club meetings they attend on sunday and wednesday. This is a condemnation of 99% of what calls itself christianity today. Matt 7:14 clearly tells us that only a few will be saved, why don't today's pastor's preach on that? Too negative...sorry, bad for church growth. The bible advocates a plurality of elders overseeing (not ruling) the church. Today's apostianity wants none of it, they want STAR POWER!! They want rock star GURUS, they want men who can ENTERTAIN, they want what's in the kings palace, not the stable, not the manger. Today's apostianity looks for their christ in buildings that BLING, the Jesus Christ I know was born in a humble, no name stable, no bling, no glitz, no glamour.
He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
^^^^sounds to me like the real Jesus would'nt even make the C-list in today's apostianity...
This world has no place for the true Son of God. WAKE UP AND REPENT!!!!!!!!!!!!
