We are a church that believes in the “old paths” that have been tried and tested! We believe in Preaching the true Gospel Message of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.
Calvary is the dividing line between Heaven and Hell.
Sorry folks, you can’t have both! The question is, what do you choose?
I pray we all get it right. Sloppy gospel messages and churches are not for me and they are not what will change a lost soul.
I’ll take the “OLD PATH” that has been tried and tested.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16(KJV)
THE WAY OF THE CROSS LEADS HOME!
The world and it’s toys are not attractive to me! I’ve chosen the old path that my parents and grandparents chose!
In many churches today, we find the altars have been removed. The platforms have been changed and even darkened to draw the people in. Afterall, they say, “That’s the way they like it.” Many platforms look and sound more like a modern day rock concert than the house of our Lord.
It’s pure foolishness, many times, even blasphemous!
Does this sound familiar? “Folks, we’re not here to offend anyone. We want you to be comfortable, so just feel at home in this atmosphere that we have made just for you. Don’t worry, we won’t preach against certain things that will make you feel uncomforatable. Relax, there’ll be no talk about sin, hell, conviction or the cross in here.”
God forgive us, church!
When was the Gospel message of, “Leaving all to follow Christ,” comfortable?
No, it’s not comfortable. It shakes your world, to leave all to follow Christ. Without CHANGE there is no SALVATION FOR ETERNITY!
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Church, this is the RIGHT way! Not, “We don’t have alter calls, because we don’t won’t to offend anyone” or “Let’s get these old altars out and replace them with strobe lights, and bass speakers that will rock the house.”
The old fashioned altars have witnessed more of God and tears, than most worldly minded church leaders that fill our pulpits today.
The TRUE Gospel message slaps us in the face; makes us change our walk, our talk and our direction FOR LIFE!
If you walk into the doors of your church this coming Sunday and it looks and sounds like the world, ask yourself this one question, “What am I still doing here?” I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, “If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, then it’s a Duck.” Well, Church, If it looks like the world and sounds like the world, then what in the world are you doing there?
If you walk into the doors of your church this coming Sunday, and DO NOT feel the Anointing Power of the Holy Ghost and if the message is not the TRUE GOSPEL MESSAGE, “JESUS CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED,” not this stuff that tickles your ears, you better think seriously about what you’re still doing there.
Don’t settle for this new stuff, when you know in your heart that “the Old Paths are the right paths.”
The more we push Jesus out and the more we welcome irreverence and ungodliness (worldliness) into our churches, the further we are going from the truth and into total spiritual darkness. Jesus warned us many times in the Word about deception in the end time that we are living in.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itchy ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (KJV)
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24 (KJV)
Jesus is coming soon and He’s coming back for a glorious church without spot or wrinkle. He’s coming back for a church that is Holy and without blemish. He’s coming back for a Powerful church, full of the Holy Ghost! He is not coming for a church that resembles the world in any form or fashion!
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 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. Ephesians 5:26-27 (KJV)
My prayer is that the Church of the Living God will wake up from this apathy and deception. It’s time to quit living like the world.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6: 17, 18 (KJV)
It’s time to quit chasing after every wind of doctrine and to be what God has called us to be, “A GLORIOUS CHURCH, WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE” in these last days.
There’s only one true gospel, only one true message, only one true story.
The New story is the Old Story, “Jesus Christ and Him Crucified!”
May God richly bless you,
