…when we dress up like going to a ball, rather than with the garments of praise…the church has lost its way!

…when we receive offerings and hoard it up to look good to financial institutions…the church has lost its way!

…when we loose the visions of our forefathers and become secular…the church has lost its way!

…when we prefer an Ivy league graduate over a person called of God…the church has lost its way!

…when we overlook sins of our congregation because it may offend those who give…the church has lost its way!

…when we spend more time on politics than the doctrine of Christ…the church has lost its way!

…when prayer meetings are forsaken and church ball leagues have more than enough…the church has lost its way!

…when revival meetings have to be scheduled after other events to avoid conflict…the church has lost its way!

…when sexual immorality is just as prevelant in the church as it is in society…the church has lost its way!

…when Sunday school and youth events are turned into pool parties…the church has lost its way!

…when the Holy Spirit is not allowed to be in control of our services…the church has lost its way!

…when we have training classes to teach people how to heal and to speak with other tongues…the church has lost
its way!

…when we teach those among us that morally good living will be good enough…the church has lost its way!

…when our leaders are focused on positions and status  they may obtain…the church has lost its way!

The church needs to stand up today and be “The Church”, The Church of the Living God!

God is not slack concerning His promise…Just a little while, and He that shall come will come and will not tarry.

Amos 8:11
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst
for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:    

2 Kings 22:8
And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD.
And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

The Book of the law was found by Shaphan the Scribe…this indicates that it was lost!

We don’t need more books by good authors. We need to hear the Word of God!

We cannot save ourselves…Our only hope of salvation is in and through Jesus Christ!

Has the church lost its way?

How long has it been since you have experience the hand of God on your life?
How long has it been since you moved by  the anointing of the Holy Ghost?
How long has it been since you prayed through?
How long has it been since you have prayed for over 15 minutes?

2 Timothy 3:1
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2.For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy,
3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.


Conclude:
I am convinced that we need a Revival. Not just a series of meetings with a well known evangelist, but a REVIVAL.
God will send us a revival when we put away our flesly desires and seek Him wholeheartedly.
God is seeking to do just that in our lives.
When Adam and Eve sinned against God…we find God seeking them…”Adam where art thou?”. In John Jesus
declared that God seeketh such to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
Isaiah 55:6
Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

The Church needs to get into a close fellowship with God today. Jesus is coming soon!

Let us pray!
