A REALITY CHECK:

July 13, 2017

THE LIST of all major hinderances to revival and restoration of GOD’s blessing and Presence in the churches. This is a list of the major areas of deception and open doors to further deception in the churches … both in Cebu and other parts of the world . . .

1) The compromises of a false-unity called “organizational ecumenicalism.” This includes official and unofficial linkages with the Roman church and other churches with serious errors in their traditions, and dogmas. – including various forms of idolatry.

Please note that praying with and having *some* (unofficial) fellowship with Roman Catholics and other religions is fine. but to think or assume that they are “all Christians” who do not need the Gospel NOR to be delivered from false religion is A GRAVE ERROR and an open door to further deception. DO NOT link with apostate churches or organizations. – they are under judgment.

2) FLAGRANT idolatry, – both external and internal (of the heart) idols.

too few have the courage to stand against it or expose it to the Light of the Word and Truth.

Santa Nino. Mary-idolatry. prayers to Mary. “veneration” and “adoration of Mary. also: idolatry of:

* the RCC religion & ministry.

* the Pope. “the Magisterium”. certain saints. priests.

* “the Mass” and the veneration/adoration of “the host”.

IDOLS of the heart in the churches:

* ministry promotion & idolatry of ministry.

* self-promotion.

* empire building. denominational-ism.

* idolatry of money, “success” and “prosperity”.

* the IDOL of Rock music. “christian rock” and many idols of “entertainment” and sports. “American Idol”.

* the IDOL of the family and family-name. idolizing children, … and compromising because of their carnality and ‘youthful lusts’.

* “malling” – coveteousness (“which is idolatry”). consumerism.

* idolatry of youth.

* video games. ungodly dvds. movies. lust. violence. TV has literally become a cesspool of immorality. HBO. cable TV. ungodly “entertainments”.

3) lust & worldliness in the churches. 

live-ins. adultery. fornication. gay-couplings.

a serious lack of modesty. the ungodly ‘fashions of the world’ are seen everywhere in most churches. women dressing like only slightly modified street-walkers, exposing their bodies to incite & entice lust.

lack of holiness.

lack of conviction of sin.

lack of repentance. hardness of heart. stubborness.

4) Generally, there is little preaching against sin. little or no mention or warning of hell for the lost and the hypocrites. “NOT EVERYONE who SAITH unto Me, ‘Lord, Lord’…” ~ Luke 7:46; Matthew 7:21.

5) A general rejection of the prophetic voice calling for repentance and a return to “holiness unto the LORD”. [google: Picture of a Prophet, Leonard Ravenhill]

6) A lack of proper balance between Grace/Love/Mercy, and Truth/Obedience. too much emphasis on grace tends to lead to permissiveness and “cheap grace.

too much emphasis on truth and doctrine often leads to a form of legalism and pharisee-ism.

Balance, via the Holy Spirit, is vital and important.

7) Noisy, carnal, worldly “rock praise” and carnal “performance-type” “worship” in the churches. – this grieves away the Holy Spirit. GOD MUST be worshiped IN SPIRIT and IN TRUTH. – and praise & worship leaders should be MATURE ELDERS, … not simply “talented youth”. “Spirit” means: by the Holy Spirit within; “in Truth” means the person is actually WALKING in Truth & Love.

* Because of these things listed here: MANY churches have “Ichabod” written at the doorways & over the sanctuary of their churches. – GOD is NOT honored there in REALITY & in holiness & truth.

8) A serious disregard FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD insofar as designated leadership.

women ‘pastors, elders & bishops’ ordained and encouraged. – this is UNbiblical and AGAINST GOD’s designated Government & roles for men & women. There is currently underway an inversion and perversion of GOD’S Divine Order & designated roles for men & women. … and many churches are DEFINITELY a part of that inversion and perversion.

rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.

The twin satanic principalities of Jezebel/ahab are absolutely RAMPANT in the present-day culture & churches: worldwide.

The usurping spirit of Jezebel is a MAJOR attempt at undermining GOD’s Order and Kingdom. – it always brings chaos, conflict and deception. [google: “deceptions of Jezebel spirit”] – very few discern this evil and deception in the churches, … even fewer are willing to deal with it and require these usurping spirits to cease undermining the Government of GOD.

9) the rampant evils of gossip, slander, judgmentalism, and backbiting. * 2 Timothy 3:1-5 *

10) jealousies. division-making spirits.

11) the conscious & subconscious desire to manipulate others for the purposes of “tithes” “offerings” and pastor or church income.

 BE AWARE:

* “some were called, … others called themselves.” *

12) RIGHT HERE IS A SERIOUS LACKING AMONG MOST CHRISTIANS: MOST ARE NOT WALKING UNDER THE HEADSHIP OR LORDSHIP OF CHRIST. again: rebellion. stubborness. self-will. an unwillingness to be teachable OR discipled.

*** We must pray against these things. we must repent earnestly that any of this be not found in our own lives or in the churches and in the people of GOD. These are all to be purged and repented of and that there is a RETURN to righteousness & holiness ! ***

*** 2 Chronicles 7:14 ***

* we must ask GOD to expose & convict of these sins and to give us a weeping-spirit & soul over these many sins, compromises, and these REPROACHES to the Name of Jesus Christ & His Church.

13) Many watered-down “new bibles” and paraphrases that have (in many passages) seriously mistranslated the wording AND MEANING of the Word of GOD. There are many find and reasonably accurate Bible-translations, … but “The Message Bible” and “The Living Bible” are NOT good or accurate translations or paraphrased-bibles. The best bible translations are the NKJV, the Amplified, the NLT, and the Revised Standard Version. The old King James Version is good for those who can comprehend this older and more poetic translation of the bible.

14) THE MERCHANDISING of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The merchandising of ministry and the people of GOD.

“copyrighting” and selling for profit the Word of GOD, worship, and ministry of every kind, type & variety. “selling tickets” to worship GOD or teach or minister, … for a price.

15) A serious lack of invoking THE PERSONAL NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ in prayers and in praise & worship. – His NAME is often seriously missing in many prayers and choruses and songs. – in many cases HIS NAME is deliberately substituted with mere “generic names” or titles like, “God” “Lord” “Christ” “in His name.” etc.

HIS NAME, btw: is the Lord Jesus Christ, … or the Lord Yeshua Messiah. – THAT is His actual and personal Name above every name.

16) A general and serious lack of discipleship programs. a lack (generally) of full-Body ministry or participate and inter-action among brethren.

17) A lack of transparency, honesty, openness, and Agape Love relationships among Christians EVEN IN THE SAME CHURCH-fellowships ! … “the love of many shall wax cold…”

lukewarmness. A serious lack of community and fellowship in love & in the Spirit.

 and finally:

18) A brief listing of general sins that MUST be repented of:

* exploitation & oppression of labor.

* mis-treatment of domestic helpers.

* REFUSAL to pay minimum wage.

NOTE: “treat others as you would have them treat you”.

THE LAW: pay them a fair & decent, livable wage.

* lying. cheating. dishonesty.

* unforgiveness. offenses. betrayal. bitterness. bondage.

* a terrible spirit of betrayal and offense is now in many churches.

* lust. live-ins. fornication. adultery. “lust of the eyes”.

* the sin of *prayerlessness*. lack of a devotional life. little or no desire to study & read the Word of GOD.

* worldliness: love of the world & love for the things of the world.

* a serious lack among many Christians of having any desire to be a witness or to share the Gospel with others via testimony, tracts, dvds, or outreaches.

* pride. lack of loving & open relationships. lack of trust. judgmentalism. slander. gossip. critical-spirit. – all these things need to be openly confessed & repented of.

Note: “satan” means: “slander” “accuser” “persecuter”. – no one is despised or accused or persecuted more than the prophetic voice that calls for repentance
