24 ¶ Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
Millions are those who claim to be Christians and followers of Jesus Christ. Churches across the world are filled with congregants every time the doors are opened.
We claim the blessings and the protection of God when we are in need but in the good times we ignore and compromise His ways for His people.
Most pastors leading the churches today are filled with lust, laziness, tolerant to the world’s method’s, and have traded in their ties for a pair of tight jeans and flip flops.
Entertainment rules the houses of God and messages on repentance and alter calls are forbidden and found to be offensive.
The truth is not tolerated nor is the ministers who carry it. The awful form of religion is all that is praised and the presence of the Almighty God is not wanted.
The Holy Ghost has been forbidden and the name of Jesus Christ has been shamefully exhausted to the point that it is just a name of a man that was here a long time ago.
So what’s it all for? The gathering to the so called houses of God? Is it to give Him glory praise and honor?
Or is it to ease our selfish conscience of the sin that is in our lives? Is it because we want to be challenged by the Word of God in our lives?
Is it because we want to be discipled to go out and preach to the lost in the world?
Matthew 24:12, 13 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Jesus Christ id soon to return and many of those who claim to be His followers are not ready spiritually for His iminent return.
