The joy and peace of the Lord to you. It is with a troubled heart and a quenched spirit that I sit to write to you men and women of God. My heart is troubled and my spirit quenched because I am saddended by the continued lack of discipline in the Body of Christ. I am saddended by the continued slumber in the Body of Christ.
We are lacking discipline for the simple fact that we do not pray as we should, we do not Worship the Creator, the Alpha & The Omega, The Beginning & The End, as we should. We do not follow the commandments, as we should. We do not speak boldly, Thus Says The Lord.
For many years the Body of Christ has simply sat back, done nothing, said nothing, and so now, we have nothing. We don't have prayer in schools, we don't have people who claim to be sent from God, preaching the Gospel, we don't have a place of true worship for non-believers to flock to once they have received salvation.
Look around the world today, and you will find, sin, sin, sin. Why is that? Because the Body of Christ is in a deep sleep. The Body of Christ has been caught up in praising men, on earth, instead of praising God.
The crime, the destruction, the deceit, falls on but one pair of hands, the hands of the Body of Christ. You see, look in the mirror ladies and gentelmen, you are the cause of what the world now is. The world should not look to the government in times of need, the world should look to the church. The bible tells us to put tithes into the storehouse so the widow and orphans can come and receive. What's in your storehouse today? The widow and the orphan are knocking at your door, what is it they will receive from you?
I am also the cause of what the world now is. For even if one tenth of the Body was out doing as God commanded,it wouldn't matter, for when one tenth is doing right, and the rest is doing wrong, The entire Body is doing wrong. We read in 1 Corinthians 12:26 " And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
The Lord spoke to me today and told me that the hedge that once protected this nation, has been removed and it will not be replaced. That brought such sorrow to my heart, and at this very moment, hours later, that sorrow is still residing within me.
We have the audacity to cry out to Him when things just don't go right, and yet, when things are running smoothly, we have no complaints, all is well, what are we saying to Him then? Nothing.
If we told Him that we would do all that He ask of us, why then aren't we doing it? Why are people still in bondage generation after generation? Why are people dieing of diseases? Why do the blind still not have sight? Why are the cripple still lame? Why do men still not have liberty?
I will tell you why, because the Body of Christ continues to walk in UNBELIEF. We don't BELIEVE all that is written in the Bible. We don't BELIEVE that we possess the POWER to heal the sick, to cast out demons, to drink a poison and not have it harm us. We don't BELIEVE. We have no FAITH.
Well, Im here to tell ya...get the belief that you need and simply BELIEVE do it. Walk this walk by FAITH. The bible tells us in Romans 14:23:
"And he that doubeth is damned if he eat, because he eatheth not FAITH; for whatsover is not of FAITH is SIN!!!!
In other words, when you don't have FAITH, because with God it is a requirement, you are sinning. You are now in disobedience. : For whatsoever is not of faith is sin! Hello? Did you read that? Let me say it again:
" For whatsoever is not of FAITH is SIN" that is in your bible. Today, seek Him and repent for your UNBELIEF and lack of FAITH.
How can you minister to others if you have no FAITH? The answer is easy, YOU CAN'T! So if you're walking in UNBELIEF. If you're walking without FAITH...I suggest you sit down, take a seat and speak not until these things are lined up correctly. You have the power to have both. You can do this. You must believe that you can.
My prayer is that you will see the correction that is needed. Acknowledge it. Ask God to give you strength to do it. I leave you with this....
6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
