Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
God's judgement is spiritual and infallible – it can never be wrong. When the Lord began to speak to me about some of these churches, I was confused and said to myself, “No, it can not be possible.” More especially as it involved a church I knew to be a holy church. The Lord was saying, “How many will go to heaven there? Just scanty, here and there!”
I wondered, “Why? I know these people have the doctrine. What went wrong?” But with time, I began to see the reality and repented of my doubt and said to myself, “Let God be true but every man a liar.” The Lord said the devil has sent many demons into that assembly and they have compromised righteousness there. Now, they have a form of doctrine but they deny the power of it.
This has been God's assessment over the years until it took me time to come to terms with it. It may also take you time to come to terms with God's assessment of the denominational church where you fellowship. If you were a member of the Laodicean Church when God gave His assessment of her, you might not have agreed because you would have been blinded by many things you are seeing there.
You would have been blinded by the acrobatic displays, miracles, the lying wonders and false testimonies that are being given there. You would have been blinded all through, but God's assessment is true, valid and irrefutable. Who can argue with His Creator and be justified? What He says He knows perfectly! So, how can you contest His judgment?
So much pollution is in the church as a result of the activities of merchandising pastors who are actually agents of Satan. If God is revealing the terrible state of your denominational Church or any one for that matter, it is to free and save perishing souls that have been mesmerized, brainwashed and locked up there. Stop arguing and believe God!
Don't doubt God because of the prominence of these pastors and the spiritual exploits they lay claim to. God is no respecter of persons and large followership is not a proof of God's approval. Even Satan has more followers in the world than Jesus. It is just in the nature of man to believe lies and join Satan to contend against God.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Thought for the day:
Not all churches you see around are of God. Beware!
Song for the day:
We have come to Thee oh Lord…. that it may be well with us.
Bible reading for the day:
Numbers 5-6; Mark 4:1-20
