I was listening to someone pretty well known as a gospel singer and used to be pastor. She was ranting angrily about church folks. She was cursing and acting completely out of control. In the comments some people were saying God is speaking through her, she’s telling the truth, woman of God speak, etc while others were against the delivery. God had nothing to do with it. It’s foolish to think God would speak through ANYONE in that way. Truth is it was all her, she was speaking out of the flesh! Although she spoke truth how she did it was wrong. Cause she’s mad now she wants to talk against people and the church; when she knew from the start those people were EXACTLY the way they were. She remained a part of it until the well ran dry. Don’t blame no one but yourself. I’m always good with the truth and she told the truth, but lowered herself to tell it.
I’ve told you all many, many times just because a person says they are a pastor doesn’t mean they are of God. A person can tell their story without acting out of control and cursing, disrespecting self. Don’t get mad THEN want to blast the church, those you were doing what you were doing with, regular church goers, etc. People know the folks they are dealing with and they know many in the church aren’t remotely trying to live what they are professing. As long as it’s working it is all good; when something goes wrong you’re mad at everyone to include God.
I don’t care how upset or disappointed a person gets you never let the devil win. You shouldn’t let the devil take you back to your old self. People do it because they’ve never truly became new creatures, therefore they never came out of their old ways. Trust me if you’re faking it will come to the light. Going on Facebook live only shows the entire world who and what you truly are. It’s no surprise to me! I’ve said more than I’ve written in some of my blogs many Gospel artists sing, but don’t live what they sing. I know; I’ve lived it and seen it. I’ve written many times how people are making their pastors their masters and how the churches of today are not churches of God, they are churches of the people. Churches of the people are straight business oriented. They reach people to keep their businesses afloat, but they aren’t trying to reach souls. This is why I always say get a relationship with God for yourselves and get into the Word for yourselves.
Listen, stop believing the myth. Everyone going to the church house isn’t a Saint of God. People get upset and want to cast God aside because they are mad at church folks when most of the church folks aren’t Saints of God. People go to church out of tradition. They go because to them it’s what they are accustomed to and they think it’s the right thing to do. It’s not because they love the Lord and have a relationship with Him. They have relationships with everyone but God. They are faithful to the pastor, choir, usher board, Bible study, and tithing; ALL to please man, but no relationship with Jesus Christ! Most still do the same things they’ve always done, they haven’t changed.
Many people are angry at church folks when most in the church aren’t Saints of God. People are confusing it, they have put all people going to church in the same category. It’s wrong and unfair, because some people who are going to church are in love with Jesus. They believe He is the Son of God who died for our sins. They worship Jesus and not their pastors. They are going out of a relationship with the Father and the Son, and Holy Spirit and not to please the pastors or people. These are the true Saints of God and they aren’t the same as regular “church folks.”
With regular church folks expect anything! Their walk, talk, goings, comings, ways of thinking, feeling, and acting hasn’t changed. They are still liars, cheating, boastful, prideful, they love money and things, and doing everything against God. Sad part many are the preachers, teachers, singers, choir directors, musicians, ushers, etc. They go to church, but it’s not in their hearts. When you’re a true Saint of God you carry the church inside of you 24/7, not just on Sundays or for Bible study. You live the church, because the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit dwells in you. That is the difference between people just going and those who are Saints of God.
If you’re mad you should be mad at self. People put folks up on pedal stools, they praise and worship them, then they are mad when they are hurt and disappointed. It’s to be expected when you deal with folks who are going to the church house out of tradition. It’s to be expected when churches are ran strictly as businesses because the focus isn’t the soul for the Kingdom, the focus is the body to fill the seat. If a person is angry be angry at yourself for falling for it and going along with it trying to get what you want. Get mad at yourself for putting your pastors and your churches before God. Get mad at yourself for putting folks on pedal stools. Get mad at yourself for trying to do whatever to be a part of the click. Get mad at yourself for trying to embed yourself into the lives of people because of who the world say they are (they are known, have a title, have positions of power, etc, etc). Get mad at yourself for worshipping people, titles, positions and not worshipping God!
Jesus is exactly who He say He is; the First, the Last, the Beginning, the End, the Great I Am. He’s all of it and some. He’s not false of fake. He’s not a want to be He is the Great I Am. He’s no liar, He’s no people pleaser, He isn’t fixated on titles or statuses cause He’s the Great I am. He doesn’t have to show boat for anyone. If you get connected to Him you will understand the difference between church folks who go out of tradition and love for the people and those who go out of love for Jesus Christ. There’s no comparison! You will also know just because a person sings the gospel and may be a household name it doesn’t mean they are living what they sing. People are falling out over folks and worshipping individuals who are singing the gospel, yet the ones they worship don’t know Jesus! It’s a shame!
As long as people go with their eyes on man being led by the flesh they will continue to get the same results; disappointment! You follow what you love the most! Stop using the line people are judging and no one is perfect to stay the way you are. Stop serving the world and think you won’t get what it has to offer; disappointment! God is not mocked!
