The real essence of Christian fellowship is all about sharing; Love, care, knowledge, etc but most are not doing this. We need to share our knowledge of the Word with someone out there so as to win him/her in. But that essence has been polluted by the devil through people who believe they know but in actual fact, do not.
The Spirit gave me a revelation on how the Church was created to be – a rehabilitation center for Sin addicts.
If you know how a rehab(in the USA) is run, you’ll understand better. ( Luke 16:8 |And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.)
The Church- a place where a sinner after giving his life is supposed to be able to enter and talk freely about his addiction, receiving advice from fellow believers who have been there before so as to be able to get strengthened.
Where a new convert can stand and say “I have been masturbating for over 15 years now and even though I’m saved, i still find it difficult to control” and any of the brethren around gets up and says; “I actually had the same issue for over 25 years but now I’m celebrating my 10th year of not masturbating and this is what i did…” he goes on to give advice which the new intake works on to get better. And get strengthened.
But is the Church like that? NO. The Church has been turned into a fight house where people hide their hatred, malice, envy, strife, whoring, etc behind friendly faces. And due to these acts of “breaking the hedge”, the devil (serpent) bites, attacks us with sickness, untimely deaths, barrenness, husband-less, wife-less, etc. God help us as believers to really know the TRUTH (John 8:32) which can set us free from every form of demonic captivity. Acts 2:44-47
1 Corinthians 5:8 – Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
The devil has so twisted a lot of beliefs and scriptures for the believers while he’s busy stealing all the souls and taking a bite out of us at the same time. And this same cunning wimp(devil) is who most believers obey when they disobey God. It’s all so saddening… *sighs*
Thank God that our(believers) bodies are the temple not the church building and that’s why miracles can still abound through those temple ‘clean enough’ for the Holy Spirit to dwell in to connect to the ‘unclean ones’. Because if it was the church building, no miracle will abound in the church due to all the darkness (SIN) inhabiting there which will not allow the Holy Spirit dwell in.
Luke 11:36 “
If thy whole body therefore be
full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”
John 1:5 “
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
2 Corinthians 6:14 “
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
Isaiah 5:20 “
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
