What does it help to belong to a church but never discovering the reason and purpose why God put you on the earth ?
If we humble ourselves in the Presence of God and if we allow the wise Gardener of God’s Kingdom to cultivate the seeds of His word unto obedience in our hearts so that we find ourselves transformed into the dwelling and habitation of the Lover of our souls, then we shall find that His Holy Spirit shall cause our lives to bring forth the sweet fragrance of the Darling of Heaven, and as the nations around us, which are so and in such desperate need of His love and intervention smell the fragrance of Jesus coming from our lives, the Holy Spirit will draw them to the throne of grace and forgiveness.
CATHEDRAL MENTALITY AND DEAD RELIGION WAS NEVER GOD’S PLAN OR PURPOSE
I walked with the Lord into the religious setting of man-made religious orders through a divine encounter and I witnessed Him exposing and breaking religion over His people because many foundations have been laid through a cathedral mentality and through the traditions and doctrines of men and not after the pattern and likeness of Jesus Christ.
God sent His Son into the world to make disciples not churchgoers. The church is not the pattern, Jesus is. We are called to become like Him and to walk as He walked through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are called not to go to church but to be the living tabernacle of the manifest PRESENCE OF THE GOD WHOM WE CLAIM TO FOLLOW.
We are not called to follow men behind pulpits. We are called into manifest sonship by becoming the Lord’s disciples. Hebrews 12
The Lord said to me ” the majority of My people are in a relationship with their churches and the guy behind the pulpit. Few are in a relationship with ME as the HEAD OF THE CHURCH.
Many religious people don’t have a clue of their purpose in the kingdom. The destiny and purpose for which you’ve been created.
Jesus did not come to produce religious church clones that only worship Him on a Sunday in a man-made cathedral through the music of a church band NO NO NO the Son of God entered the world of the religious lot of the day to disrupt and disturb and overthrow the deception of religion because religion is man’s opinions of God.
Denominational organisations is idolatry in the PRESENCE OF GOD because it divides seeking people who claim to worship the same God. There is no scripture in the entire word of God that give people the right to establish a religious organisation through the deception of tradition and religion. Jesus exposed and rebuked the traditions and religions of the day because the religious spirit causes idolatry through the worship of false gods which people created according to their own opinions and likings.
WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS THERE IS AGREEMENT, THERE IS ONENESS AND GOD ORDAINED UNITY, THERE IS AN ABSENCE OF CONFUSION AND THE CONTROL AND INTERFERENCE OF MAN, THERE IS NO SELF SEEKING AND SELFISH HIDDEN AGENDAS BY WHICH THE NAME OF GOD IS USED TO MAKE A NAME FOR ONESELF. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WILL ONLY LIFT UP JESUS BECAUSE WE NEVER DRAW PEOPLE UNTO OURSELVES. BY THE INFLUENCE AND THE GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WE ALWAYS POINT PEOPLE TO CHRIST AND TEACH AND INSTRUCT THE NEW COMERS AND BABES THE PRINCIPLES OF INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE GOD OF THEIR SALVATION.
We do so because our desire is proclaimed in the following scripture.
Collossians 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10 That you might walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, who has made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13 Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things are held together.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were once alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblamable and unreprovable in his sight:
23 If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature who is under heaven; of which I Paul am made a minister;
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:
25 Of which I am made a minister, according to the commission of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 For which I also labor, striving according to His working, who works in me mightily.
Isaiah 61 is the calling of every child of God. In a 4 week retreat the Lord said to me that the only calling upon God’s children is TO COME TO HIM DAILY THROUGH AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP and as we pursue HIM then God will manifest Himself through us whenever and however He desires, this being the ministry.
He is not looking for qualifications, He is looking for willing available vessels that God can fill. Don’t allow religion to steal or shipwreck God’s plan and desire for your life.
