The Church A Beer Parlour?
THE CHURCH A BEER PARLOUR?
Isaiah 56:7 “Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.”
The church was built to be a holy mountain, where sacrifices of offerings are acceptable to GOD because it is hallowed Numbers 18:29, and where prayers are made because it is offered from a pure heart and acceptable to GOD 1 Kings 9:3. This was the state of the church from the foundation and it remains the same till this moment. A church that has no spot or wrinkle is the individual that JESUS is preparing for His kingdom. Are you part of that kingdom? Holiness and unblemishness is the requirement for getting there. Hebrews 12:14 “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord”; Ephesians 5:26 “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
However, in other to please people and satisfy their flesh with pleasure, the handlers of the church which was once a place of prayer have now turned it into dens of thieves and robbers. Matthew 21:13 “And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Is it of any surprised to you today that pastors now collects tithes, offerings and donations from known thieves? Since the belly of these pastors today is their god Philippians 3:19, they now allow every form of unclean thing into the holy sanctuary of GOD and defile it therewith Deuteronomy 23:18. Ever wondered why there are so much churches today and yet, so much evil in the land? Think of a situation whereby GOD, the owner of the church have been expelled and driven out from His own church by our so called pastors today and invited Satan to take ownership of the church. What a pity. Jeremiah 44:16 “As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee.”
Furthermore, the churches today have graduated from dens harbouring thieves and robbers to a beer parlour. Gossiping is now the centre point of today’s church just as it is seen in beer parlours and drinking joints, where irresponsible people cracks all forms of jokes to amuse themselves and use all manner of foul words and languages against one another. Psalms 101:5 “Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.” Hence the influence of alcohol which is a mocker is their lot today. Proverbs 20:1 “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”
When a church becomes a beer parlour, all that will be happening there is just a gathering of mockers, tale bearers and comedians 2 Thessalonians 2:9. The HOLY SPIRIT abhors such a church and their fellowship and worship is to Satan 1 Timothy 5:15. They are people moved by the flesh and operate solely to please the flesh Roman 8:8, as they always stand up in slandering against anybody that rises up to challenge their drunkenness, and rebuke their lukewarmness to the things of GOD which are truth, holiness and righteousness. Galatians 5:15 “But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.”
A beer parlour church does not preach sin, hell fire, rapture, complete holiness, purity, yieldedness, sanctification and other sermons that can gain heaven, many of their members would go if the true gospel is preached to them. John 6:66 “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” Instead, they preach faith alone; grace alone; eternal security and heart only as the things that matters to GOD for making heaven. Hmmm! If you are in such a church, you will never hear the gospel in its raw state, but always in a diluted form so that it can accommodate every kind of worshippers without offending their fleshy appetites, pleasures, lusts, passions and lifestyles. Galatians 5:16 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” But these beer parlour churches will rather walk in the flesh than in the SPIRIT. “Come out from among them, be separated from them and touch not the unclean thing” 2 Corinthians 6:17 is the warning of the ALMIGHTY GOD the owner of the church to you reading this message right now.
Remember, only those that does the will of GOD in totality are those that JESUS knows Matthew 7:21-23, just as JESUS was accepted of the FATHER and never left alone as He only do those things that pleases Him during His earthly ministry. John 8:29 “And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.”
Do you want to be accepted of GOD? You must come out from that beer parlour called church and worship GOD in a church that is led by the HOLY SPIRIT. John 4:22 “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
GOD bless you all.
