New Age Syndrome: How Far Can The World Go Inside The Church?

 New Age Syndrome: How Far Can The World Go Inside The Church?

With great surprise and anxiety I write this short piece about the depth of the world inside the Church of Christ. Surprise in the sense of the wonder I feel about how the world crept cleverly into the Church any serious alarm from the gatekeepers of the Church worldwide. Anxiety in the sense of how unsure I am about what will become of the Church Christ died and ressurected for.

 

And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Matthew 16:18 - American King James Version

Two things are very clear from that Scripture. First, the Church belongs to Christ, and He alone holds the power to build it. Secondly, the gates of hell are against the Church of Christ. Very plain and simple! However, there seems to be a secret or quiet romance between the Church and the world - inspite of the security alert or report given to the Church by Jesus Christ.

 

One thing is clear, the Church believes that the devil is an enemy of Christ; and he will do anything to brind down His Kingdom on earth; however, many people in the Church are fond of the works of the devil. We seems to hate the devil; but we appreciate his works - isn't that a metaphor? We dislike the person of the devil; in fact, we pray daily that "God punish the devil"; yet, we celebrate his celebrities; we appreciate his agents and we honour his vessels among us. We have so much miggled with his people that we sing their songs; and wear their cloths, which we call 'Fashion in Vogue"!

Our women we not come to the "House of Prayer" until they have thorough "plastered" their faces with the products invented by the children of the devil. We have som much entered the kingdom of satan that we believe that until a music sounds like one of the music of his children; it is not popular enough - and neither can a musician become popular until he or she appears like them.

While meditating a few moments ago; the Spirit of the Lord intimated me that a time is coming that Church people will be competing on the use of tattoos with the children of the devil. Many of us will however not use tattoos with snakes or any animal; but religious symbols and religious Scriptures. We will become just like them in dressing and bodily appearance as we continue in this unholy romance with the gates (celebrities, authors, entertainers, politicians, inventors and religious leaders) of hell.

I pray that the kingdoms of this world becomes the Kingdom of Christ - and not the Church of Christ becoming the kingdoms of this world. God bless you as you meditate on this words in Jesus name. Amen.
