Final Warning to the Church

I greet you in the only name above heaven and earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Just recently, the Lord has directed me to Turning Point by Dr David Jeremiah. The month of May, he has being doing an amazing series which has blessed us mightily. We are seeing these amazing events around the world which Jesus spoke about: wars and rumours of wars, mighty fires in California, earthquakes, volcanoes, and the list goes on. The Bible says these are the birth-pangs before the end. I myself am spending a lot of time in Revelation, 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18 and 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52.

Sadly much of the church is asleep. Pope Francis has just made a statement that Protestantism is dead and there is only one holy, catholic church. He is having major meetings with major pentecostal leaders from around the world, faith groups and the faith teachers such as Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer and their entourage, which David Wilkerson spoke about, Charles Lawson is still speaking about. Many of these megachurch leaders such as Joel Osteen have kissed the ring of the Pope. Do they understand by kissing the ring they are bowing to his authority and denying the death of the martyrs from the reformation, many of which like Wycliffe and many that can be found in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs died in vain?

My brothers and sisters, we are entering into a time of major heresy when Joel Osteen can say all roads lead to God, Oprah Winfrey and Gloria Copeland state clearly that Jesus was just a man that was touched by the Holy Spirit in the Jordan. It is time that the big pentecostal movements such as the Assemblies of God and Elim, the Bible colleges of this nation and America and the TV channels such as the God Channel, Revelation TV and United Christian Broadcasters came out against these people. Where are the men of God that once told the truth? Why are they not speaking out? People like Donald Gee, Eddie Durham, George Jeffreys, Stephen Jeffreys and the founders of the Assemblies of God must be looking down from heaven and wondering what on earth is going on. The Bible says, wake up you sleepers. Sadly most of the church in the United Kingdom, the United States and the West are fast asleep and leading their congregations down a broad road. The Bible says,

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practise lawlessness.’”

Matthew 7: 23-33

So if you support these ministries you are enabling them to lead many astray and there could be a judgment for you too. We all know that at the end times there will be two judgments: one for believers, and whatever your theological stance is you can work that our for yourself, and the great white throne for those who reject God’s offer of full salvation and God’s gift of grace.

So, my brothers and sisters, it is time to speak up, warn our brothers and sisters of the heresy that is in the church, even though you will not be popular, but my understanding of the gospel is that the apostles were not popular. Whenever the church advances it is never popular. When it gets comfortable and sups with the devil, Lucifer leaves it alone. When you speak out for Christ you will be attacked, but as Paul said, great is your reward in heaven.

If you agree with my statements please add your comments. If you do not agree, still add your comments. But I suggest you go before the Lord, get your house in order, as the Lord is coming soon and it will be too late for those that you know and your loved ones. It is our duty to witness to them whoever they are or wherever they are. I for one will be a watchman looking for the master’s return.

God bless you.

Into Battle

We are living in perilous times. We see the conflagrations around the world. I believe we are living so close to the end that the body of Christ needs to wake up and, as it says in Ezekiel, stop playing in the shallows. As a minister of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for over 36 years I am beginning to get a witness in my spirit that it is time for the church of Jesus Christ to stand up and start being counted. I believe the church worldwide has settled for a candy-coated gospel. We have used clever programmes, clever schemes and at times worldly methods to reach the lost. My brothers and sisters, these things do not work. They will never work. They result in social clubs. Jesus told us to watch and pray. I believe when the body of Christ stops entertaining the troops we shall see a revival and a restoration like never before. I have read about the Hebridean revival, the 1905 revival and Azusa Street, but I believe there is a revolution about to start that will make these look like Sunday school parties.

Jesus told us through Matthew 24:

“And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.”
Matthew 24: 6-9

I believe these are the words of Jesus Christ. Am I correct? He also says later in Matthew 24 for us to look at the fig tree:

“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!”
Matthew 24: 32-33

I also believe God is going to shake the nations. We can see through the Old Testament when the children of Israel were stiff-necked and rebellious against God He allowed them to be taken into captivity: Egypt, Babylon and Rome.

So, my brothers, sisters and fellow-ministers, if we do not get out from behind our walls and get into the battle, as we are in a war, we battle not against flesh and blood but against powers, principalities and rulers of wickedness in high places, we shall lose more and more ground to the enemy. As great men and women from the past know, we need to get on our knees, humble ourselves before God and fight the battle in prayer, and then when this is done, go and take the land. As Pastor Bonnke from Christ for All Nations always said, we should plunder hell and populate heaven.

I do not care what denomination you are from, you who are reading this, it is the same for us all.

Most churches I go into seem more like hospitals than army camps, or sadly they are so worldly they become entertainment centres, which saddens my heart. I have visited churches over the past five years. I have been in church meetings and there has been no welcome to me as a stranger. I have left these meetings wondering why I ever came. Many churches in the United Kingdom lack communitas. If you check on the word communitas, you will see it is the kind of community that Christians experience when they are on mission together (see this video). The problem is, you need to be on mission to experience this. It does not mean you have to go to Africa, India or far across the world. There has to be a mission heart in your local church or fellowship. We were never told in the scriptures to stay. We were always told to go (Matthew 28). What we seem to do in the west is have a party and invite people to the party. My observation of the New Testament is they went out. They did not employ professionals to do it. They all did it. I know some of the clergy will not agree with this but my understanding of that is they like to keep their jobs and sadly sometimes power.

So I would like you to reflect on this wherever you are in the world.

Titus 1: 10-16
For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain. One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.
To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
