Proverbs 21:16 – The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.There are haunted houses all across the United States filled with the walking dead.
Those who call themselves Christians are piled into these so called houses of God that are haunted by the ideal of a time that once was but now has passed away.
They’re the ghost of the past of once Holy Ghost filled churches on fire for the Word of God armed with the boldness of the gospel but are now become forsaken graveyards with lifeless congregants who wander the pews walking in a spiritual slumber. Faith has withered away and the great delusion of the truth has sealed the hard hearts of many believers.
The church has been infected with the disease of compromise. Rhigamortis has set in and the body is decaying. Although everything seems to be okay with the entertaining worship service and the delusion that God is pleased with our pathetic attempt to serve Him with our own ideals.
We have forsaken the path that leads to eternal life to the path that leads straight to the gaits of Hell. We hide in our churches/morgues as the outside world passes by and hears the ghostly whispers of a lifeless religion we have made peace with.
I say lifeless because that’s how we see it. We are okay with the status that we are at in the church. We’re fine without the power of the Holy Ghost. We’re fine without the presence of God in our congregations. Besides there is no conviction of our sins! We are free to sin at will. We can do our own will and just ask God to forgive us when our conscience feels guilty and then we’re okay to continue in our worldly activities.
The conviction is no longer affecting us because we’ve become spiritually dead. So we have become the walking dead. No light in us and no power.
You might say Dan your being very pessimistic! But I say to you what about the lost world? What about those who are in despair? What about the alcoholic? What about the drug addict? What about the SRAs? What about the aborted babies? What about the WORD of God?
Halloween! The big pagan holiday!
Many churches will have youth costume parties and put on haunted houses and even take the church youth group to these haunted houses. They will allow their kids to dress up and go to Halloween parties and many adult will attend events celebrating this pagan holiday also.
We know the world will do this but even those who call themselves Christians will do this.
There are millions in the world today who claim to follow Jesus Christ that will consume this season with the viewing of horror movies that will be filled with sexual sin and demonic entities.
Many are unaware of the danger that this brings into the mind, soul and spirit.
Ecclesiastes 10:8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
When we invite these things into our lives we are not only invoking demonic activity but we are turning away from what is holy and rebelling against what God tells us to refrain from.
We are to have nothing to do with the things of darkness!
2 Corinthians 6:14, 15 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
Belial is a pagan god it’s not a light hearted thing to God for us to commune with these things.
An infidel is a non- believer it’s like water and oil they do not mix!
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Through the years the churches stopped preaching against these things and the people of God have excepted these practices without considering the grief that is causes on our creator.
It makes a mockery out of the things of God when we choose to become like the world and let in the things of the world influence our lives and activities.
God is Holy and hates sin. Where is the Holy Ghost? Where is the needed revival? Where is the conviction of sin? Where is the reverence to the Word of God? Where is the fear of God? No where!
There is no fear, no thought and no care of the iniquity that has been sewn in the hearts of mankind.
The great darkness has not only blinded the hearts of mankind but has also infected us with a spiritual sickness that has turned us into ghost for the Kingdom of God.
I say ghost because ghost are not seen and when we choose to be silent on the issues of today we are taking the characteristics of a ghost, unseen, not noticed, just a deafened silent whisper.
We are in the final moments of the Last Days and we’re sleeping the sleep of death. Where is the church?
What good does it to attend church every time the doors are open to listen to a feel good sermon with no alter call, no amen’s, no repentance message and no change in the congregants?
The houses of God are haunted by Christians who refuse to answer the gospel call and take a stand for the things that ought to be holy. We have chosen death by denying the power of the Holy Ghost to bring in the lost and relied on the devil and his worldly reflection of entertainment to saturate the sanctuaries of Gods house.
The modern church has paved a humanistic path that leads to a self induced feel good religion that is full of death and darkness that will only lead to eternal destruction.
We have become so distracted by the things of the world that we have lost our first love.
Revelation 2:4-5 5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Matthew 8:22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
Proverbs 21:16 – The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
