By Prophet Dr. David Owuor, 2015
I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
Have you seen that now?
11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
There is the rider of the White Horse in Revelation 6:2 and now you meet another rider of the White Horse in Revelation 19 from verse 11 to 14, with the armies of heaven following him with fine linen bright and clean. Right?
Because when the LORD describes this form of apostasy, he tells us that there is a teaching that will come, another teaching, and it will deceive many and many will be believe it and be deluded. Deceived. Understand? And then something else comes out very powerfully. Because I wondered how can somebody come and say I am the Christ? Remember, He was talking to the disciples, who had known His voice, who had known His teachings, they knew His position on sin, they knew His position on righteousness, they knew His position on holiness, they knew His stand on the renunciation of apostasy.
He is telling the same ones that know His voice, and His teachings, and Him that another one will come. That another person will come and lie to them with another teaching they will believe, and will also tell them that he is the Christ.
So, apostasy thrives in counterfeit. Did you understand this form of apostasy? This form of apostasy that I started with flourishes with counterfeit, counterfeiting God, counterfeiting the true religion, counterfeiting the true faith in Christ Jesus. That is why I say proclaiming himself to be the “truth”. Did you understand this now? Because we know Christ the Messiah is where? He is in Revelation 19, True and Faithful is His Name, with justice He comes to judge, the sword comes out of His mouth and devours His enemies. Right? Revelation 19 is the Messiah.
This other one here, the rider of the white horse, his name we have said repeatedly is: Deception.
The key thing that I am trying to bring out on this form of apostasy is what? Is the counterfeiting! He takes errors and uses what you call imitation, so they may look like true. I am trying to describe the counterfeiting that the devil uses to make people believe the following: This is the true church, this is a true pastor, this is the true gospel. So they submit there.
He takes counterfeit, and uses imitation to make them look like original.
The white horseman riding the white horse… his aim to conquer riding like a conqueror bent on conquest. Meaning he can take nothing except victory. He says the conqueror, Revelation 6:1-2, conqueror bent on conquest, meaning he is not ready to take anything else except victory. But when the Messiah comes we know that the Messiah will not take anything else except victory.
Renunciation of the Christian Faith
The second form of apostasy: the complete and total Renunciation of the Christian faith. The first is to submit unto other teachings, but this one is the complete and total renunciation of the Christian faith, thereby leading to the tragic abandonment of Christ Jesus the Messiah Himself! Saying, “you know me, I am an atheist. I will not come to church. You know me, I am a devil worshiper I don’t want Jesus.” So just finished right there! As good as dead before it begins.
I am now describing another point after I have given you the two forms of apostasy.
How now to battle apostasy, but I want to walk you into the characterization of apostasy. We have to characterize it. The falling away from true faith causes the following in church:
A) A splintered faith to be formed, meaning a break away faith.
B) A splintered teaching, meaning a breakaway teaching to be formed in the church.
C) A splintered growth to emerge from the same. A branch now emerges that is counterfeit. That splintered growth grows rapidly.
D) It then pollutes all the aspects of Christian salvation as we know it. It then pollutes all the aspects of Christian salvation, as we know it. (ed. a Prophetic repeat sentence, please read slowly.) Which means once there is that splintered faith formed, and then now you have splintered teaching, and then all of the sudden a splintered growth, then what it does now it just pollutes everything about Christian salvation: the dressing, the eating, the talking, the phone calls, the movies, everything, the life of salvation now is polluted. Do you see the scheme of the devil?
How does it pollute? What does it pollute?
Prayer and prayer life
That’s why you find these prayers, “Nabadu shakada, shakada reba, shakudu, nabadu, shaka , nebedi, shakad reee, basher, so the LORD is saying there is these two demons” or whatever…Ahhh!
Apostasy pollutes even prayer, which is the most important portal that God ever created for us to communicate with Him! When I came to Kenya that is the first thing I shut down (false tongues), and then the LORD visited, oh yes!
Apostasy pollutes dressings, the dressing in church. It pollutes fasting, and it pollutes the eating behavior of Christians, and pollutes the drinking habits of Christians. So, they test a little wine here and there, I am a Christian but I am still drinking beer, I am still drinking wine I am with my colleagues, I drank something. Did you understand?
It pollutes the Word, it pollutes the preaching, and the companionship as they now have that type of friends. And then ultimately satan is fully accomplished in the church. When all these things are polluted then ultimately satan is fully accomplished in the life of the believer. Have you seen how he plans to knock out the church using apostasy? And when that happens then a complete falling away from Christianity takes place. When that happens then a complete falling away from Christianity takes place, not just the faith, Christianity now.
Now you find people to that are subscribing to another religion, and another way of worship also.
Then the apostate, those people involved in apostasy then they essentially become clandestine atheists in the church. He says that those people who are apostate they become undercover atheists in the church, undercover, concealed atheists. Now you are sitting with them in the church but we have a group who are atheists. They don’t believe in God. When you submit to apostasy you really worship another because our God can not pollute the Blood of Jesus. Never! Because there is not another sacrifice, only one. If we pollute it what shall we have? The Blood of Jesus can not be polluted. That’s why those that tried to pollute–look at the tragedy.
The design of the devil is to build forth a congregation of atheists in the church.
How does Apostasy Access the Church?
The bible states that apostasy gains access in the church in ways that are the following:
1 Never, ever in ways that are obvious.
2 Never easy in ways that you can see and shut down, right? Meaning, in ways that are not detectable.
3 He gains access by creeping in. Do you know the way a snake creeps into the house? It normally comes under the door where the door and the frame open and then when it enters it goes by the end to the wall.
4 In ways that are subtle always, hidden, and concealed.
5 In ways that are cunning, in ways that are crafty.
Errors to become imitation, to become truth; that’s how he comes in.
He takes the Word the way the devil did in the Garden of Eden, he takes the exact Word that God spoke and he perverts a little thing and then he presents it as truth. An imitation so you can not even see and say, “Wow, this is it, this is true.” Even when they preach it, those preachers when they preach to even them they look real. They come pretending to be angles of light, fakes imitating genuine.
By counterfeits imitating the original.
By copy imitating the original.
All of the above are carefully and skillfully designed, or crafted by the devil to the extent that errors and truth can now be mistaken for each other. Can I repeat this? He does this so skillfully that at the end error and truth almost look the same so you can mistake them for each other now.
Do you understand how he gets into the church. I am now dealing with the mechanics, the mechanisms. He is creeping in slowly, pervert a little bit to look like truth; some will choose this way and some will choose that way so now the two (error and truth) are being confused for each other.
Proverbs 18:17 “He who states his case first seems right, until his rival comes and cross-examines him.
Acts 20:29 “I know that after I am gone, ferocious wolves will get in among you, not sparing the flock.”
Apostates endeavor so much to appear right, genuine and true (outwardly), but inwardly they are decaying. This inward decay is characterized by the following:
1 They are ungodly
3 Denying Christ
5 False visions
6 Self satisfaction
7 Ignorant of God
8 Worldly minded
9 Devoid of the spirit, empty of the Spirit
10 Unborn again
13 Out right against Christ, they are Antichrist
Let us look at How Apostasy Spreads in the Church
We see how it enters, now we will see how it spreads. The snake has entered the house by the wall and you did not see it, but how does he start biting people in the House?
In order to wage an all out battle on this cancer called apostasy the Christians must be aware of the schemes of the devil and the processes that the enemy employs to spread this cancer of apostasy that it may grow and disseminate to the maximum. In order to fight it we must understand the following:
1 We must define and clearly identify the decay of apostasy.
2 We must clearly define the biblical boundaries that define Christian life.
Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you keep on going.
The LORD is saying that apostasy can never, ever spread in the church on its own! Apostasy can only spread in the church when a section of the church submits itself and accepts the teachings of untruth. It is the church, it is you people that have to say, “I now accept and gather around myself a preacher that preaches what is itching to the ear, the gospel of the flesh.”
This implies that Apostasy does not come to us by force or by any form of subjugation, but begins with us Christians and the church, and the body of Christ, by first having us accepting the sick teachings. This acceptance of non truth (lies) often begins in a hidden way, not obvious. For example, a preacher comes from Nigeria, preach you something that challenges you a bit, preach you tricks, dance, and have women run with checkbooks to write checks and says the work of God we have to support, OK? Simple and subtle, hidden, appears harmless here. Another example, someone lies to you in the church, and we say “that’s OK, its alright, that’s the name of the church you know you can’t beat the sheep too much.”
When you begin to accept those little tolerances here and there that you think is a joke (light) but the devil is accumulating it in the church, and then there is an evidence of that accumulation.
Coming in slowly and secretly in that way the enemy still ensures that the evidence of the little pieces of decay here and there will accumulate in the life of the Christian believer. Coming in a such a stealthy, secret, and creepy way the enemy still ensures that those little evidences, “oh this was nothing”, “dress like this, that ok, its ok”, but for him he is accumulating evidence and at the end he has an an accumulated evidence, from the accumulated little pieces and then starts to take effect on you, the life of the Christian believer.
Having come in such a stealthy way apostasy then becomes a serious cancer in the life of the church when it starts to navigate the church. Coming in small like that, secret like that, the enemy then ensures that the problems begins to show up. When now the devil uses this apostasy, this accumulated evidence, right? Those little pieces that you did not pay attention to he now accumulates together and begins to use it now.
Look at this now, to navigate the church terribly, awfully, away away from the TWO FOLD MISSION of the Gospel of Christ Jesus! The little things that happen that you ignore here, that you ignore there, in the church, or in your life, He says, “the enemy is not ignoring them!” It is part of a grand scheme to give a small does and stay away, give small here and keep away, and then give another and keep away, and give another and stay away, move away a bit, eh? And then when it is accumulated the overall effect is to navigate the church away from the twin, from the two fold purposes and functions of the true Gospel of Christ Jesus!
The Twofold Purposes of the True and only Gospel of Christ Jesus are the following:
1 To evangelize the lost souls through the preaching of the one and only true Gospel, Holy Gospel of the Holy Cross of Jesus.
2 To edify and prepare the most holy and most glorious perfect Bride of Christ into sainthood for rapture. They become the heavenly hosts dressed in fine linen bright and clean.
These two major noble purposes are the ones that the accumulation of apostasy will navigate the church away from. Is not that a terrible thing? Very terrible!
These two missions indeed Constitute the Great Commission that Jesus bestowed upon the church. So he comes to destroy the great commission. So you are already benign to understand that apostasy is not for the church it comes from somebody else.
Apostasy then interferes with this mission of the church by redirecting the church away from the Highway of Holiness. This detouring that it does is by redirecting the church away from the Highway of Holiness of the church, and then you put Isaiah 35:8-9 in brackets. The Highway of Holiness that the church is suppose to walk in now you move the church out. We know too well Isaiah 35:8-9 says,
And a highway will be there;
it will be called the Way of Holiness;
it will be for those who walk on that Way.
The unclean will not journey on it;
wicked fools will not go about on it.
9 No lion will be there,
nor any ravenous beast;
they will not be found there.
But only the redeemed will walk there.
And he says no beasts will be there (verse 9) meaning the beasts that are devouring the church right now will not be there! And that means when this apostasy detours the church from that protective, protected, Highway of Holiness to another road then she is exposed. Are we together? Exposed, so that the beasts can bite her and kill her, devour. Are we together?
In other words, this sermon today becomes Apostasy exposed, or the devil exposed. Like any other addictions this falling to apostasy often begins slowly but rapidly leads to a deplorable state of degeneration, tremendous degeneration, of awful degeneration, of sick degeneration, of shocking degeneration. Like any other drug addiction, alcohol addiction it begins very simply and slowly, but oh, the next day you realize you are hooked onto to it.
For example, “I don’t know I just like when there is a pastor from Nigeria or somewhere, and can walk in and just announce that 5 people must be millionaires today!”
Some people like that adrenaline shot, and they say, “so when I run and give him that check of 100,000 it is me you are talking about that will be that millionaire.”
So, some people are addicted to that. Do you understand me, just like drug addiction, smoke, alcohol addiction, like any other addictions of this world? Apostasy also begins slowly, but rapidly presents a serious state of deplorable degeneration. Upon addiction, the church then strikes a state of no return, Upon addiction, the Christian then strikes a state of no return!
As the church begins to abandon the preaching of the one and only true Gospel of Christ Jesus in its fullness: IN ITS FULLNESS, meaning they begin to preach a half gospel, when the message is too holy they cut it away, when it is rebuking too hard they keep it away. Then the following begins to happen: the number of unsaved people within the congregation begins to increase. What a phenomenon! Because they drive the agenda of satan in the church, this unsaved minority often becomes very aggressive, and rapidly grows into an influential minority inside the congregation. Again: Because they come from the devil this unsaved minority becomes very aggressive in the church and they quickly become an influential minority.
An example: “Pastor I have suffered since I came to this church, I have suffered much.
“My daughter tell me how have you suffered?”
“Pastor, that man you brought to preach last week, uh uh (no, no), pastor, never bring that man again. I felt hurt, in fact that’s why you see the next two weekends I did not come back church. Uh-uh, uh-uh (no, no) And you know, Pastor, I support you and we want to support the work of God and we want to be strong in the standing and…
“And so pastor when you say I should buy 100 chairs I was ready but when that man preached like that and then, you know you don’t just destroy, the bible says that Jesus is love, he is love. And let me tell you pastor, I am not alone. I have heard a group of women here and you know they talked to me they said, “uh-uh.” In fact some of them just wanted us to find another church.”
They are trying to influence the Gospel being preached because they are shelling money (paying, giving, tithing) and you know the pastor is soft hearted to them because they are shelling. So you know he has a soft spot and he says, “Oh, sorry, sorry, yes actually you are not the first I have received quite a few complaints about that preacher so I will see what to do”.
“Pastor, I have told you this is a general…there is a word going on, the outcry is uh-uh! We have suffered too much… they already…the nation has gone through so much…”
Did you understand how apostasy spreads? He is saying it entered slowly and then it began to remove the church from the true Gospel of Jesus to win souls and prepare a holy bride that when the Messiah comes the church enters. And he says when now the church has abandoned that and just veered into that pass now the minority, the unsaved, they now convert, they mutate into an influential minority. Because this group is coming from the enemy they tend to be very aggressive. If this pattern, this trend of abandoning the preaching of the one and only holy true Gospel of Christ Jesus the LORD goes on unchallenged over time, the unsaved minority quickly transforms, becomes, builds up, translates, graduates, converts into an influential majority in the church!
This influential majority then quickly becomes very demanding and assertive, and it asserts its footprint upon literally every single church activity. Because they are shelling liquid cash the pastor then begins to naturally obey the long established and globally celebrated principles of democracy by preaching a gospel that is clearly aimed at, or designed to accomplish the following: Edify, glorify, uplift, exalt, elect the apostate unborn again congregation of the church.
He is saying because they are coming with such liquid cash (they bring) the pastor has no choice but to obey the long established principles of democracy, majority. And now he begins to preach a gospel that is clearly designed and directed to exalt this apostate, unsaved section of the church to please them. This is what instantly throws out the remnant few holiness seeking saints of that church. This is what now begins to throw out the few remnant holiness-seeking saints in that church. The remnant righteousness-pursuing sheep find no place in this church because they are in this process subjected to a carefully designed regime of spiritual starvation.
As the pastor now delves deeper into this new landscape of prosperity teaching, new avenues all of the sudden begin to open for him and then he begins to invite motivational speakers, he begins to invite fund raiser and inspirational speakers, and preachers that move the crowds. Then he negotiates with them before hand on how to split the loot and the spoils, upon a successful harvest. Have you seen how apostasy takes over the church?
Now all of the sudden, as he goes deeper into this new landscape that has appeared in his life, they call it his “economic miracle”, or whatever it is called that has struck him, now new doors and new avenues open for him all of the sudden to invite motivational speakers: all the ones that don’t use the Bible and if they preach they preach half of it and they will say that the Old Testament is legalistic. They will say, “No, you can not dress long like that (modest) now we are living in the modern age. Yes, there is liberty where there is salvation.” They use every scripture to justify (immodesty in the House of the LORD). Now he begins to invite them, which means he is upping the game in the church.
The remnant holiness-seeking flock then find no place in the sanctuary. Sexual sin then begins to go up as the first sign that the pastor has raised his game. The pastor then all of the sudden anoints himself and admits himself either to the office of the “prophet” or “apostle”. He says that these things are going so well I have to anoint myself. Then deception and fake miracles all of the sudden begin to appear in the church. So he has to start doing the work of the “prophet” and “apostle” he can not delay, he will not be late.
The remnant righteousness-seeking sheep are properly starved, seriously starved to the extent that most of them simply voluntarily decide to opt out, to drop out of church. This remnant holiness-pursuing sheep then decide to remain in their homes even on Sunday’s, thereby nursing their wounds and afflictions they have just incurred in the House that the LORD built for them at the Calvary Cross before He left to Heaven.
This majority now they do not stop there. They now move to starve the righteous saints, the holy saints. And we reach a point where holy saints being starved now eventually just opt out. They begin to drop out of church…very sad. And we said a point at which they remain out of church even on Sunday and when they remain out of church they meet maybe two or three people together on Sunday’s. And probably they start praying for revival saying, “LORD, please, can you send us your Prophet to come and rebuke this (apostasy).” The remnant now remain in their homes and begin to pray LORD send us your prophet to come and rebuke apostasy in the church. Because they know this is wrong.
Soon they begin to gather in their homes and begin to wail, cry out and pray for the LORD to send them His Mighty Prophet to come and rebuke this abomination in the House. They begin to pray and cry to the LORD and wail to Him, “Please, send us your Prophet to come and rebuke this abomination happening in the House because the pastor is now sleeping with woman, money is being preached, nonsense in the church, false prophets”, and name it, right? They now begin to cry and wail and pray for the LORD to rebuke it to send somebody–and they know that will be the Prophet, to rebuke it.
They then begin to pray that the Creator may send Revival once more to the House that even this unsaved church does not get away with it. They don’t get away with this act. The LORD designs a strategy to bring them into a tragedy. Oh yes! He says the unsaved apostates that formed the majority also don’t get way with their act. They also face a tragedy in that they always still think that they are saved. Did you understand me properly? The LORD designs that now an ending tragedy for their act, in the church. Do you know what the tragedy is? That they always keep thinking that they are born again. That is the worse thing ever…that you are always thinking you are born again when you are not!
Because the true Gospel of Jesus is seriously eroded in such a church, and greatly watered down, these unsaved people in church now face an even greater calamity. Owing to the fact that they really never get the chance to perceive the true importance, significance, value, and treasure of Repentance, genuine Repentance! Because they never ever get to understand the importance that Repentance beholds before the throne of God! They never, ever get the chance to understand the gravity that repentance bears into the Kingdom of God. Genuine repentance from sin. To them this is a very unpleasant and cumbersome gospel so they reject it out-rightly.
The Kingdom of God is repentance. The rapture of the church is repentance. The entry to heaven is repentance.
The true believers who genuinely seek repentance, righteousness, and holiness at this stage have totally no place in the church. And they simply leave the church quietly, without confronting the apostasy. What is the effect of that? What is the effect of them walking out quietly without contesting it, confronting it, without a fight. What is the importance of that, what is the meaning of that? That means that the church is now left in the hands of apostasy! Now finally surrendered to apostasy. Because if they had stayed to fight it would impede the growth of apostasy. You just check next week and look now that chair is empty. The other week that older one that comes early is not there anymore, whatever, they are now gone.
They are totally outnumbered (remnant holy) and so they choose not to stage a confrontation with the pastor since most of them are usually very poor people to begin with. They don’t have money to give the pastor so he can listen to them. Apostasy then grows very rapidly and multiplies throughout the church because it has been left literally unrebuked. The same thing happens to your body, to your person as a Christian if you don’t rebuke apostasy in your life it reaches this state. This is the state that I call the free fall, the vertical dimension. It starts with a plateau that is sloping a bit down and when it reaches a place then it falls vertically.
So, apostasy begins very slowly as though one were walking around the downward slope and it is safe, but you reach a point where there is free fall and no return. That is the point where you reach and become the atheists, that’s the point where you see in this city some of the big pastors they have interfaith apostasy. Did somebody here me? Interfaith apostasy! Meaning, you can now meet with a Muslim, and a Hindu, and come on TV and say we have agreed. Which means you have paraded Jehovah the Jealous God of Israel who can finish a nation for that. You have put him on a referendum. You are asking people to choose between Muslim god, Hindu god, and Jehovah into an interfaith apostasy.
At this point the church begins to accept only sections of the Bible. Certain sections that are too harsh they do not touch because they are too holy, or contain too much accountability, or too much rebuke. That is apostasy. Then the congregation begins to deliberately avoid any scripture that emphasizes holiness. They also avoid the Old Testament saying it is too cruel and so legalistic. That is when they come with liberal theology saying, “the bible is actually not the LORD’s book, not God inspired. The bible is a human book, its man’s book, which talks about his aspirations in how he wants to relate with God.” That is the free fall that is the atheists in the church!
And then in the same liberal theology they now say, “homosexuality is acceptable, they were born like that, they are accepted.” And then if you rebuke them they say, “even you, how would you feel if somebody says you can not be a pastor because you are black? that is why we can not stop homosexuals from being pastors.” Do you see the reasoning, it is shocking!
Now I am revealing to you the heart of apostasy. You can not entertain apostasy in your church or in your heart, never ever! Apostasy is death.
Liberal theology then also brings in postmodernism. Where there is now euthanasia in church. For instance, if someone wants to take his life it is OK. Assisted suicide that is OK also for them. They then get those sick notions of interfaith religions, universal acceptance of all religious including traditional religions. They call them traditional practitioners. The apostate become numb to sins and then the church enters hell.
I want to introduce a concept here: There are scriptures here we need to read, part of which I have given you saying that they walked away from us because to begin with they were not part of us. So you have to be very careful and that should make you fearful. In other words, apostasy and those who are apostate they were destined to that. So that really shocks me, right? When I read that scripture I see a lot of fear in me over this issue.
Revelation 3:16-17 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
The Bible prophesied that the Messiah would return for the bride. Among the key signs of His imminent return would be apostasy. This decay would be so bad that it would spell a humiliating dispensation in the church that we are seeing now. Revelation Chapters one (1) through three (3) talk about the rebuke of sin in the church. He is looking at the fallen church and giving solutions. Revelation Chapter 3, however, comes out much more clearer as the scripture that defines the symbolism of today’s fallen church.
The rebuke the Messiah gave to the church in Laodecia
You see so much similar sin to that church and this church that you see out there and on TV. Today’s church is Laodecia. They resemble them in apostasy and in complacency. Even when they are apostate they are still complacent, which means they do not seek repentance. The LORD launches a scathing rebuke that points the way to repentance. The LORD accuses that church, which is today’s church, he accuses her of the following: that she is neither hot nor cold. I want you now to see the apostasy of this day, and how the LORD looks at it.
She is neither hot nor cold, meaning she is lukewarm then he rebukes her for being lukewarm. He rebukes her for worldliness, she (the church) is caught up in her worldliness, caught up in her wealth.
Today the line is cut, but remember the fear of God first before you can even claim to want to kick apostasy out! Because you will have no power. Have I not spoken with you? Hasn’t the LORD spoken with you! The fear of the LORD is the beginning of all wisdom, right?
The wealth of this world that this apostate church is trying to pursue is rubbish, right? The LORD rebukes that church for blindness, worldliness, focused on their wealth. I wish they would pursue the LORD He would show them His real treasures, the heavenly treasures that last forever, hallelujah! That church is symbolic of today’s church as they are doing exactly the same there out there. No fear of God, they are very opinionated, they try to condescend even the Prophet. So when you are at that place then you know you have definitely crossed the line and headed to hell unless you repent and return to the Highway of Holiness. And he says, “Wisdom is the fear of God.”
Matthew 25 the five wise virgins (fear of God) entered.
The LORD uses this example of the church in Laodecia to emphasize the reason for the present day church to fight to regain her lost authority.
Timothy 3:1-5 Charge without power, Salvation without Power
If you read the scripture in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 you will see the true picture of apostasy in the church. The workings of apostasy and the consequences of apostasy in the church. What the LORD brings out is the following: A form of salvation would appear without power. Why without power?
The Blood of Jesus is abandoned in the present day apostate church. Why? Because it is only the Blood of of Jesus that is power unto the Gospel. The Blood of Jesus actually washes away the sins of man, implying that the Blood of Jesus is essentially repentance. If they had embraced the Blood of Jesus they would have washed away their sins. It would have reminded them of repentance.
The Holy Spirit is abandoned, the apostate church does not know how to address the Holy Spirit. You can have a relationship with the person of the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah! That is what I began to preach. Why? Because I found out that the church did not know where to place the Holy Spirit in their lives. And I told them, without Him you will not enter. Without knowing how to place the Holy Spirit in this whole paradigm you will not enter (The Kingdom of God). Because actually He has the central role to prepare a glorious bride: without Him you are done. So they abandoned the Holy Spirit, thus they have no power.
Failure to preach the entire holy gospel of Christ Jesus.
The present day church has no power because they have failed to preach the entire holy gospel of Christ Jesus. Both the Old Testament and New Testament, and please all verses even the bitter ones. And then in those churches that have fallen when you go you find that the reason they have no power is because they preach Christianity without Christ. If you preach the person of Christ then you find out that He is very Holy. Then you are forced to preach holiness, you are compelled. That is why I told you about unborn again people in the church. They preach forgiveness without repentance. Do you understand why they have no power? They say “No! God loves a sinner, no God is love.” They preach forgiveness without repentance, how can you enter like that? They preach heaven without hell.
“From the least to the greatest,
all are greedy for gain;
prophets and priests alike,
all practice deceit.
They dress the wound of my people
as though it were not serious.
‘Peace, peace,’ they say,
when there is no peace.
Romans 1:20-22 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.
To counter the apostasy of the interfaith no one can see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again.
So don’t tell us about other gods here there is no other way accept taking Christ Jesus as LORD!
strong Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
