There is a difference between spiritual stupidity and scriptural ignorance. The ignorance we can fix with the truth contained in God’s word, but spiritual stupidity is a choice and requires a nature change that can only occur by the inherent power of God’s word through Christ.
Prov 12:1 (NKJV)Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, But he who hates correction is stupid.
You may not like my manner of presentation regarding all this, but if you are attentive to the Holy Spirit, you cannot deny that there is a real lack of His supernatural work in many churches today. And for those who choose to deny it, you qualify for one or both of the statuses mentioned above.
Nothing directed from heaven will ever occur here on earth or happen in any way without the Spirit of God as the controller of it. No counsel, guidance, or supernatural manifestation of the gifts, or fruit of the spirit, or confirmation of inheritance, or even the love of God. And especially not the power to overcome the oppressive work of the devil, as all gifts of ministry are clearly under His divine council direction and anointed flow.
So where do pulpit occupiers’ of some so-called cultural activist fame’ get an evilly directed ministerial instruction? I know I just said they are ministering evilly, some ignorantly, but most fully choose to stand up against the Spirit of God to maintain instructions, not of the truth.
Now they may be just trying to fill in the blanks, so to say, by speaking about things that do not have a clear definition drawn out in scripture as whether good or evil simply because most believers are not fully conscious of scripture.
Eph 5:6-10 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
I hope you see through it and know that deception can occur, and it will occur within the churches of the body of Christ.
7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Our instruction is to not participate with those who deceive or those deceived.
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Evidence of deliverance from darkness is our walking in the light having the fruit of the Spirit revealed in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
This proving what is acceptable to the Lord only comes by the working of the Holy Spirit since He is the one who came from heaven fully conscious of all the genuinely pleasing things before God.
Some of you are saying, where is all of this evil stuff happening? I don’t see it in my church. Praise God if it’s not happening in your church, but if it is happening, you need to know it, and if it’s happening in one, it’s in way too many.
The real question is, why is it not seen by those who congregate where it is appearing? There are several reasons for this, but under a guise of truth, if confirmed by scripture, He reveals an evil presence is working within, which means truth must be hidden or deferred to hide this activity.
Many denominations are now taking up a position that makes us an enemy of God. Knowing the enemy could be sitting next to me in a pew but not knowing my authority and power is because it only occurs by a work of the Holy Spirit.
James 4:4-5 (AMP) You [are like] unfaithful wives [having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God]! Do you not know that being the world’s friend is being God’s enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God. 5 Or do you suppose that the Scripture is speaking to no purpose that says, The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love?
Let me bring into view something that’s a real problem and very damaging of spiritual serenity in the Church. It’s an acceptance of liberalist socialism that concerns same-sex marriage promoted as acceptable in the Church. For this to happen, they have to put this on a plane that makes it appear not as equal but better and fully acceptable to God.
So, the issue is not about political correctness or equal rights as the media would have you believe. It’s all about an evil perversion of God’s prophetic truth the Spirit of God has already revealed to His creation of males and females.
Churches and organizations that side with the world’s socialistic view and its evil ways have chosen to be an enemy of God. As they align with the evil, they deny any truth revealed by the Spirit contrary to such unions. No sin has recently fallen on humanity that you can’t find the enemies evil work has been present since the beginning.
These leaders are of a religious-secular exhortation but call themselves part of the Church while forsaking truth that blasphemes the Spirit of God to rewrite the words He has written. The judgment that occurs on them will be fully commensurate to their evil manners.
Ps 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
Herein lies a key to the uncharacteristic manners plaguing the Church today. There is no longer a fear of God in the hearts of those who endeavor to do evil before Him.
Prov 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Many are speaking perverse and false declarations from pulpits that the Spirit of God has seared, no longer under any influence by Him, or never were in the first place. This ill-fainted authority is evidence enough to prove His working is not in tune with those who choose homosexual lifestyles placed in a position bearing His authority within a religious organization since they are without an anointed posture in the sight of righteousness.
So any organization promoting God cannot deny such a position propagates an evil dribble. And no matter how hard the enemy tries through man to rewrite the ordained word of God, it cannot be done, as there is no one, including the devil, with authority or power to change what’s supernaturally carved out as His eternal plan. Because the chief cornerstone and foundation of the Church Christ, the Messiah, has been laid, by Jesus His anointed Son.
1 Peter 2:4-6 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
I have to ask those reading this, is any of this clear to you why there is no real activity of the Spirit of God in many churches today? As I said, Praise God if your church is not under such leadership, but many are, so I must request that you pray for those who aren’t and those who are under judgment for such falsehoods.
