So what has Satan done? He has deceived the churches today into thinking that it is ok to bring worldly styles of music into
church to worship God, which is why we have so many churches with "rock style" bands blasting out worldly beats and rhythms.
He has deceived the churches into thinking that it is ok to use COMMON INTOXICATING WINE in holy communion to represent the PURE
PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST JESUS!! He has deceived the churches today into thinking that it is ok to have pantomimes on stage,
which has turned many churches into "theatres" rather than holy places of worship. Satan has convinced the churches that it
is ok to dance around to the music as if in a nightclub or at a rock concert. He has convinced the churches today into
thinking that we NEED TO ENTERTAIN the people, rather than simply preaching and teaching the truth of God's holy Word in the
Bible. And the list goes on and on ....
The churches are so focused on "how can WE bring more people in", that they are accepting more and more worldly forms of
entertainment to make "church" more acceptable to those outside the faith. What should we do instead? We should preach the
plain Word of God and let the Holy Spirit convict hearts. It is only God who can draw people into His kingdom, not us.
Ezekiel 44:23 ...'And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern
between the unclean and the clean.'
Is this plain truth being taught in the churches of the world today? In very few of them! Which is why the majority of Christians are happy to
continue watching hours and hours of sin on the television. And are happy to continue going out drinking and partying in a worldly way.
And are happy to spend most of their time on sport or some other form of entertainment. And are not bothered about what they eat,
and what they are doing to their bodies, which are now the temple of God. And they are not concerned with HOW they worship God.
Again, the list goes on ...
Isaiah 5:20-24 ...'Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for
darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their
own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked
for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the
flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast
away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.'
We cannot mix worldly things with our worship of God. We worship a holy God, an all consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24), therefore
our worship of Him is to be pure and holy and is not to be mixed with the common profane things of the world. We must not think
that God will accept any form of worship, because those in the Bible who did that very thing were rejected by God or even
2 Corinthians 6:14 ...'what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light
There is such a relaxed attitude in the churches today with regards to how we live for our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus and how
we worship God. It's time to get back to a "thus saith the Lord" rather than following the crowd. We are living in the end times
of earth's history and Satan is working with all lying wonders and powers "to deceive if possible the very elect".
In Revelation 18 it says that "Babylon" has fallen. And in Revelation 17 it says that Babylon has "daughters" (harlots). Babylon is
the "mother" church (the Roman Catholic Church) which has fallen, and the daughters are those churches (Protestant Churches)
who came from Babylon
the Great and held on to the
errors and traditions of Babylon. So Babylon and her daughters encompasses the fallen churches of the world. And the reason
they are "fallen" is because they have rejected the plain, simple truth of God's Word in favour of "worshipping" God their
OWN WAY! Are you within Babylon? God is calling you to come out
Please heed the warning. Please don't think like the majority of others out there who think they can worship God the way THEY
want. We HAVE to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:24), the way HE wants. Let us not mix the profane and sacred in our
lives and our worship. Let us not mix the worldly with the holy. Let us separate from the world and worship God with reverence
and Godly fear, in accordance with His Word.
