"How Saved Are You.... When You’re Going Through A Major Crisis?”
"And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said unto him, I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice. If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people. If my people which are call by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and heal their land. Now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attent unto thy prayer that is made in this house."
ASSOCIATED TEXT: Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way which seemeth right unto man; but the end thereof are the ways of death."
The Church today is facing and experiencing a Major Crisis. Many Preachers and Spiritual Leaders are guilty of watering down Gospel Truth. Many pastors and preachers are failing to teach the Necessity of REPENTANCE and people are dying and PERISHING in the Eternal Fires of Hell.... where the fire is unquenchable and the worms will never die.
As pastors we must teach the Necessity of REPENTANCE and we must let people know that they must TURN FROM SIN or BURN in the FIRES of HELL.
Evangelist Brown.... We must teach the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and that He alone can redeem us from sin and the Second Death.....
To many church doors are closed.... when they shall be open trying to save, heal, and deliver lost souls for the Lord Jesus Christ.
➣ Brother Green..... The Preachers that preach REGENERATION without REPENTANCE and SANCTIFICATION without the TURNING AWAY OF SIN and INIQUITY are teaching a CHEAP and a LUKEWARM GOSPEL.
➣ Brother Prioloue.... The Preacher that teaches SALVATION.... without SELF-DENIAL ..... and the WEARING of a CROWN without the BEARING of a CROSS is teaching a WEAK and a LUKEWARM GOSPEL..... which do not have the POWER to Save and Convert lost sinners.
➣ First Lady Wright.... There will be NO CROWN.... if there is NO CROSS.
How Saved Are You When Your Church is Going Through A Major Crisis?
➣ The Church is in the mist of a great crisis, because church leaders are catering to the itching ears of the unsaved and compromising with the pleasures of the world.
➣ This is why our churches have lost their POWER to SAVE, HEAL, and DELIVER lost souls to the Lord.
➣ We are paying the price for our LUKEWARMNESS.
➣ Our instant salvation messages has DISHONORED God and DELUDED and DEFILED men.
➣ Our Faulty Seeds have produced a DEFORMED and FLAKY HARVEST, because the seeds that were sowed were Spiritually Deformed in there SINCERENESS.
➣ We have Sowed and Produced a Dyfunctional Crop and now we are reaping a Pitiful Crop, because of our Lukewarmness.
I Wonder How Saved You Are... When Your Life Is In A Crisis because of the condition that the Church is in?

➣ How Saved Are We?..... When our churches are empty on Prayer Meeting and Bible Study nights.
➣ How Saved Are We?.... When we spend more money for Dog and Cat Food ....than we spent for Foreign Mission and Relieving the Poor.

➣ Anyone who spend more time playing video games and gambling.... than they spend seeking the Lord God in prayer..... Has no right to "CALL JESUS LORD"
