Just because someone falls away from your church doesn’t mean that they have fallen away from the Faith. Pray that you are not pushing people away with messages, traditions and legalism that have no spiritual value and in fact place people in bondage.
I think that there is a misunderstanding of Scriptures that are tantamount to our eternal destiny. We cannot afford to be casual about the Truth of the coming events Church. For example 2 Thessalonians 2:3 speaks of apostasy/falling away (from the Faith) below are two translations of the same Scripture the first is from King James translation and the 2nd is from The Complete Jewish Bible (Hebrew) translation….
2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV
3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2 Thessalonians 2:3 CJB
3Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way. For the Day will not come until after the Apostasy has come and the man who separates himself from Torah has been revealed, the one destined for doom.
Discern the times Pastors….now is the time for people to hear about God’s Eternal Purposes, now is the time for people to hear about God’s plan for the Church and Israel as they relate to His coming kingdom, (where is it expressly written that money, houses & cars, mega-church buildings & ministries help to build God’s Kingdom?), people need to know that God’s economy is completely different from today’s world economy and that ruling & reigning with Yeshua/Jesus Christ is the great reward that we should be aspiring to….not the “many mansion’s in our Father’s house or the streets of gold”!
When will you Apostles, Prophets and Pastors tell the Truth?
We live in a world that is dominated by Satan and his demons, powers & principalities and rulers of darkness, gross wickedness, sin and idolatry…..and unfortunately, the Church and Israel are full of Baal Worship…..when will you Apostles, Prophets and Pastors tell the Truth.
God created man to live in Truth….not lies and falsity (Psalm 51: 6Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom).
Apostles, Prophets, Pastors….examine yourselves, measure yourselves by the Word given in the Holy Scriptures of the Prophet Jeremiah:
The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.
For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.
Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.
The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.
Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.
The household of God (that is all who are in Christ – Israel & the Church) is according to Ephesians 2:20 – built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;.
The world needs Truth and as the world grows darker….who will they turn to other than Israel and the Church as they become the “One New Man” that God has called us to be. In 1 Timothy 3:15 we are described as the Ground & Pillar of Truth! So if the Truth is not being preached IN IT’S ENTIRETY, don’t be surprised if people fall away from your church….it doesn’t necessarily mean they have fallen away from the Faith.
Once Truth is Preached….untruth, half truths, motivational messages can no longer be tolerated by our spirits.
APOSTLES, PROPHETS, PASTORS….WHEN WILL YOU TELL THE TRUTH!
