The Church Today is for you if you are one of the following: (1.) A pastors who wants to lead your church back to Jesus’ Church. (2.) You are either thinking about Walking Away from your church – or you have Walked Away from church, but not from Jesus. (3.) You want to serve in ministry by starting a church Jesus’ Way.
The Apostle Paul prophesied that Jesus would not come again unless there was a great falling away first. Jesus’ Church attracted millions of people. By contrast millions of people are walking away from their churches and nobody seems to have a solid idea what to do about it. I believe that the reason for this loss of clarity and absence of really effective solutions is because modern churches are missing the obvious…
Jesus’ Church started without all of the trappings and requirements of modern churches. People heard about Jesus. They came to Him and experienced Him. Then they simply got together wherever practical to share their experiences and insights and to encourage each other in their faith. They met in market places, along the road, in fields, in boats and from house to house.
The Church Today is for pastors who know that something fundamental is missing in their church. No matter how you look at it, the missing ingredient is always a sign of a fundamental disconnect from The Church that Jesus Christ established. In other words, spiritual frustration in our churches is always a sign that we have become something Jesus never intended or established.
“On the day that I saw a thousand children struggling for survival on the garbage dumps among the dogs and animals, I said, “I cannot do nothing. Here I must do something!”” So began a remarkable journey to poverty alleviation.
Some have claimed that if Jesus is the Messiah, why is He not mentioned by name in the Old Testament? Well, here is the answer to this question.
The Bible is extraordinary in its depth of prophetic integrity. The redemptive message of Jesus is encoded into the Bible in layer upon layer of illustration, code and meaning. Here are three examples to wet your appetite
Everyone is prophetic in everything that they do. Every word, thought and action has prophetic consequences. As an example, if you tell a child that he or she is stupid with enough force, it will change their life, their self perception, their confidence and their way of thinking forever.
Biblical prophecy can be a powerful tool to reach people for Christ. It provides us with a solid foundation for our faith and the strong awareness that the Bible is true. Yet, Jesus also warns that there will come a time of deception and false Christs.
Evil will always exist as much as day is followed by night. However, our choice is to live by the day or slowly die by night. Our moment to moment choice is to be in the light or to wallow in the darkness. There is a reason why we have been created to sleep through the darkness of the night, rather than lie awake, consuming its shadows.
The Truth is always simple. It is clear, concise and beautiful in its purity, message and impact. However, we do need to make the effort to search for The Truth. We do need to make the effort to purity our filters and wipe the dust off our lenses so that we can see and receive The Truth.
At first, when we decide to improve on Jesus’ way and do things our way it seems to work. People love the fresh new innovation and it may even become a viral trend. However, every time we replace or try to improve on Jesus’ way we always create an inferior outcome. This is typically not noticed at the time of change, but it becomes clear to the discerning over time.
The Bible is very clear that the end times church will be subject to a great falling away and deceptive doctrines that are inspired by demonic influences. This is obviously not a popular teaching for obvious reasons. However, the Bible was never written for us to feel good about ourselves
