Rebellion = sickness

01 Feb

Hello again!

Today I’m starting in Isiah… Thanks for putting up with me through all Hebrews:

Why will you still be struck down? Why will you continue to rebel? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. (Isa 1:5)


Lets put two ‘n two together here. Rebellion = as many illnesses as antidepressants… That’s not a good thing, by the way.

What is the church of God described as in the new testament? “The body of Christ“, and if the head (Jesus) is sick, “I will spit you out of my mouth” {I think that’s in proverbs somewhere} and if the “whole heart faint”… Then the church is in essence (literally) dying. What is the essence of the church? It is the gospel! My family and I have gone from church to church, in search of one that preaches the gospel faithfully, so far we’ve only found one, and even that one isn’t exactly “faithful” about it. And we’ve gone to about 10-12 churches so far (albeit, there are churches like those out there, we just haven’t found one yet). All that to say, the church is growing weak!

And, if it wasn’t enough for us to simply ‘not preach the Gospel‘ we have to go and actively rebel against it! The majority of the churches out there today… I’m not so sure are actually “Christian”, and I think that because of that, the people there will be “struck down” or, they will die… With-out ever actually making a Godly impression, not only that, but I think they will actually die compared to Christians who never really die.

So, in ‘essence’. I’m saying all of this to try to stir people up to preach the gospel, if you’re a pastor who is currently reading this, then please, please, please start preaching the gospel… And then tell me the address of your church… Please.

You are loved!
