The Luke Warm Church
Picture a world where nothing is wrong and man has become hardened to God and sin is looked at as a bad habit.
Such is the Laodicean church standing up in the book of Revelation who claim to be rich, but are they?
This video shows a young man and what his life was like before conversion.
Which Class Are You In
We find people in this church who have a saving knowledge of God but are too attached to the cares of this world and are afraid to let go.
They have been deceived into thinking that they have found the perfect balance and have the best of both worlds.
These people are lax on moral codes and have reasoned themselves into stating that God is not governing or judging his creation and that there will not be a reward for obedience or punishment for sin.
This church has been turned over to her pleasures.
This church is taking it easy with their casual approach to life.
They have appointed themselves to subdue the world instead of being a light to it.
How can they be a light with all their hidden heresies?
They are confident in their own strength and wisdom.
How can we identify this church and are we apart of this world church system?
This system has ruined many men and women of God by their compromising ways.
This church tries to rationalize or justify and explain away their behavior but the Lord says they will be spewed out of his mouth.
They are not bothered that others are in misery.
They attend service to be entertained and leave more entertained than elevated. The bottom line is some want a weekend experience that does not cost them anything.
Some of these people can quote scripture, but it does not make a difference in their life style.
They want a neat religion that they can control and they do not want the kind of preaching that comes forth to break up the fallow ground and the creases of sin that revival may break forth.
Some leaders in this church are involved in power and politics trying to build their own kingdom.
This church has no desire for bible study and someone coming to Christ is an embarrassing moment for them and if someone would shout a-men, it would be like being in a library.
Their life evolves around money and no one had better come near it or they will feel their wrath.
They sit in service but their mind is on other things. They have no blessed assurance for they have lost their joy.
The Consequences of Backsliding
My writings are not to pass judgment nor will I engage in an argument here or anywhere else.
I am just a watchman trying to help someone find their way and get some hope in a seemingly hopeless world.
John writes the Letter to the seven churches The faithful and true witness.. You are neither hot or cold you are lukewarm . I spit you out of my mouth. Your riches are nothing.
These seven churches would be represented in the church down through the epics of time.
Laodicean means conditional is lukewarm and a people are judged.
"I caught a glimpse of Glory and I am longing to be there."
