Saints have you ever noticed, how just as Jobs comforters manifested themselves in his time of trouble, the "vultures" of the so called "church", gather around those who are going through trouble.
It is not that they truly care, it is that they enjoy watching someone else suffer, they like to "gossip", so that they can gloat, and assure themselves of how great and godly they are. It is so they can look down their noses at the one in a time of trouble, thinking they are getting what they deserve.
Listen saints, if we all got what we deserved we would all be burnt up right now! God loves us unconditionally, this is the way we should love all those about us, who are hurting. If we do not, then God will bring us to a place to where we need Mercy.
David encountered such as these also:
18. Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19. Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
20. Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21. Blessed be the LORD: for he hath showed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
22. For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
23. O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
24. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
How is the church to treat the lost?I know of one currently, who is lost and who is in a time of need, and they have had a Jezebel pastor tell them, that if they want God to do anything for them, and work miracles for them, they will have to go to church, so the people can pray for them.
Well for one thing we don't "go" to church, as the body of Christ "we are the church" and we are to go to the people. So here in is error already. Jesus said my house shall be called "A House of Prayer." But ye have made it a den of thieves", and saints for the most part, that's about all the church is today, "A den of thieves". Full of those who love to steal and crush the souls of the lost and wounded.
Well as good as it may sound, "you must come to church so that God will move for you", may I remind you that Jesus did not sit in the synagogue and send word out, for people to come to Him, he got up and went out to the people. If we know of one in close proximity, we are to go and reach out to them, not wait for them to come to us. We are to take Jesus to them, yes we are to even risk rejection and possible ridicule.
If the people of this particular body, really had the love of God at work in them, they would have gone to this young person, and asked if there were anything they needed, they would have gone with a word of encouragement. They would see the obvious needs and already be praying for them, expecting no praise for so doing.
This young person is not saved, but God has miraculously saved their spouse in the midst of this time of great trouble, so God is already working great miracles, and shall continue to do so.
These so called "Christians" have one obligation, and that is to love the lost and to minister to them, without pre-attached conditions. It is God's job to save souls, it is God's job to deal with hearts, it is the "Christian's" job, to love and minister the love of God, lest they also be tempted.
The problem with this Jezebel pastor, is that she hates the idea of God doing a work in someones life, outside of her controlling grasp. I know of what I speak here or I would not write such things. This woman was recently brought to the point of death, yet she will not release her control, and she still seeks after the Glory that belongs to God alone. She loves to be called "Pastor" and for the people to need her, and admire her and know all the good deeds she does. These things I have witnessed first hand for years, they are present for all to see.
This should not be saints, this woman's soul is the one hanging in the balance. Her church is a place of oppression, depression and self righteousness, and completely out of God's divine order.
God can work through, and does work through, all those in His body, not just particular people who hold themselves up above the brethren. Saints be encouraged that God is able to do all things, to and for, all those who cry out to Him for their help, this young person I know is crying out to God for help, and He is hearing their cries, He is giving them the grace to get through each day. Please join me in prayer for them, and to God be the Glory!!!
God bless you saints
