As I’ve traveled the nation serving many ministries, interviewing ministers and Americans, I have seen a growing trend of mixing the world in the church. The world has taken over the church so much that we are now MIXING and cannot experience true power of God through salvations and deliverances/healings. Those ministers that are saying that “the problem with the church today is that we don’t have enough of the world in it” or “we need more world in the church”. I submit to you they are gravely mistaken! Our God is holy and we do not need to conjure up anything to lure people. We must just obey God and He will bring them! We need the world OUT OF THE CHURCH!
When I say world I mean influences of the worldly system. The devil runs the worldly system so why would we want it in the holy sanctuary?
Where are the alter calls where we lay down on the alter and weep for our lives and our nation? Where are the old-fashioned pews at the alters for us to kneel and cry out to God? They have been replaced with just standing there and waiting on a man to touch you on the forehead. God help us.
When I traveled this year for the MAGA Revival Tour, the Lord told me about 1/4 through that this trip was not for what I thought. He said that He will reveal to me the SICKNESS IN THE CHURCH. Following that I began to SEE with my own eyes. By the time I finished (36 states and 18,000 miles and 6 months)…I was heart-broken. The church in America is so sick that they can’t even see it.
I will write a book about this soon but this article is just a few bits of information:
One of the trends is non-modesty both on platform and in congregation. Do ya’ll feel we should be modest in church,,,,both on platform and off or what? Have I just completely seen our nation go to the compromising state that it has. God help the church try to deliver people from sexual demons…lust demons…perversion demons…when they step in a church and all they see is LUST around them? Do ya’ll not see what I see? The church is carving their body up with tattoos…poking holes in their body with piercings everywhere…not wearing decent clothes in church…not casting demons out.. separating themselves into “tribes” and acting like they’re better than “less-qualified” Christians…etc.
Some ministers will get on the platform in very inappropriate clothes such as stilettos, short skirt or dress (with no pantyhose), no sleeves and low cut blouses. Then men will get on the platform with skinny jeans, tight shirts tucked in so that their “package” is poking out there to cause lust in both men and women, and tight around their back-end as well. Those type of jeans are designed to bring/cause lust. If we are ministers, then why are we dressing to draw attention to ourselves? Why do we want to be a stumbling block and cause others to sin or lust? It can make your audience feel very uncomfortable.
If you have someone in your congregation or audience who has battled with sexual sin…you could REALLY be a stumbling block to them! Is this type of clothing giving honor to God and the position you hold in the kingdom? Does it show fear and reverence to the Lord?
We need a revival in the church of TRUE holiness.. purity… consecration… and IDENTITY AGREEMENT WITH HEAVEN! The church has lost it’s identity! We are not to LOOK LIKE THE WORLD! WE ARE NOT TO BRING THE WORLD IN THE CHURCH! We are to DIE to our flesh! Why carve our flesh to satisfy our flesh when we are to DIE to our flesh? Why carve it like a temple? It IS a temple! People should SEE THE LIGHT both in us and ON US.
Another trend is tattoos. We must be careful to not be a stumbling block to other Christians. By us allowing leaders to get on the platform with tattoos, piercings….half-naked, etc., we are sending a message out to the congregation that it’s “OK” to do this. What are we telling the church? Society? I’m not saying that those that have these things are omitted from preaching or getting on a tattoo…but they should be modest in their dress while on the platform so that they are not “flaunting” their tattoos. I’ve heard ministers “encourage” others not to get tattoos when they have their body full of them and then stand on the platform with short sleeves and throwing them in other’s faces. If you really are repentful, then try to cover them knowing the harm you are causing others. Try to be modest and walk what you preach.
When you get a tattoo…do you realize that demons attach themselves? Do you realize that you are allowing a permanent carving to be placed on your body of some symbol…some meaning? Even if it is a cross… it’s still YOUR TEMPLE! Did you ask God for permission to do that? If so..what did the Holy Spirit say? “Yes..go ahead and destroy your temple. Go ahead.” I can’t believe He would tell anyone to do that. Much less to poke holes with piercings.
I know…half of you will delete me after this…but WE NEED A REVIVAL OF TRUTH! God help our nation! #TRUTHrevival
What Does the Bible Say About Tattoos?
According to Mayo Clink – Here are risks of tattoos:
Know the risks
Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible, including:
Allergic reactions. Tattoo dyes — especially red, green, yellow and blue dyes — can cause allergic skin reactions, such as an itchy rash at the tattoo site. This can occur even years after you get the tattoo.
Skin infections. A skin infection is possible after tattooing.
Other skin problems. Sometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink. Tattooing also can lead to keloids — raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue.
Bloodborne diseases. If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases — including tetanus, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
MRI complications. Rarely, tattoos or permanent makeup might cause swelling or burning in the affected areas during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams. In some cases, tattoo pigments can interfere with the quality of the image.
Medication or other treatment might be needed if you experience an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink or you develop an infection or other skin problem near a tattoo.
Another trend is New Age & Yoga in the churches. The churches that do/sell/encourage Essential Oils, Yoga, Martial Arts, Contemplative Prayer, Homeopathy, and many other types, have blended with the culture of the world. As ministers we must avoid all acquaintances with evil. We must not touch the unclean thing or partner with the Spirit of Antichrist that is trying to dumb-down the church. He wants to desensitize us so that we will continue ingesting the vomit! We must say NO!
See Clarion Call Show About New Age & Yoga
These next two weeks my show called THE CLARION CALL, we are tackling worldliness in the church. Please tune in!
The church has compromised so much in worship (entertainment), clothing (too revealing), watering down the word (especially misusing the grace word), bringing worldly music in the sanctuary!, Yoga and New Age, martial arts, etc. We must have repentance in our nation and CONFESS TO A HOLY GOD for our idols we have erected instead of holiness! My Clarion Call show this week will deal with MIXING IN THE CHURCH! TUNE IN!
Check out my Bible Study this morning about Moses & Idols:
Join me in January for a 40-Day Fasting & Praying Initiative with We are the Bride Ministries, in which we intercede for our nation and repent before a holy God for all of the idols and sin we have erected in the church in our country! Let’s fight together and repent before a Holy God! It may not stop the judgments for it but it may ease them! Judgment is coming church (revival too…may be at same time or right before it).
