CHRISTIANS ARE DYING & ARE DECEIVED! WAKE UP!

As I always stress there should be UNITY in the body of Christ; more churches should be stepping outside of the walls in Unity for Evangelism and Outreach. The church must be performing, preaching, teaching and practicing solely on the WORD of GOD and HIS LAWS. We see today more and more in the body of Christ falling. Obviously there is a problem a MAJOR problem, which means they are not following God's word and not being taught properly by the overseer's and leaders in the church. There should be more Biblical teachings and obeying of God's word. So many young Christians are dying! Literally Dying! WHY?
Ok, let’s begin… don’t take offense but this article is meant to be an eye opener, reality check, some or many may not agree but that is how it is in the world today, no one agrees when it comes to what is Godly, to what is truth according to God’s standards or God’s word. Most hate to hear the truth, we all heard the saying “TRUTH HURTS” and yes it does but that is why it’s called TRUTH which that is when everyone can get defensive and objective. And that is what causes division, anger, hatred, controversy and confusion among Christians as well. So as you read through this article, let the Holy Spirit open up your mind and heart to TRUTH from God’s perspective. God is trying to tell us something but so many are NOT listening!

Deuteronomy 11:13
So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul—

This is reality! Just recently a young Youth Pastor age 23 in Venice California was shot down and killed for NO REASON! A Christian DJ, young with a family took his own life! Many other YOUNG Christian Rappers, Ministers are killed at a young age! Question is WHY? They may have not been biblical led? Their church leadership was not leading them right? Or they were just not ready for the Godly life? We don't know the answers, however it appears to be a growing problem and it all begins in the CHURCH! There is more lying, cheating, stealing, fornicating, pride-fullness, fakeness, selfishness, competition, greed, and so forth in the churches today then ever and it’s growing rapidly! Are the churches saving lost and weary souls and truly ministering the word of GOD or are they just preaching to the choir? Is the church teaching true biblical standards and obeying Gods word and making sure it’s congregations are being properly fed and that their member’s salvation is secure? We are living in the end times and the need for salvation is much GREATER NOW!

Isaiah 56:1
This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed.

Jeremiah 13:10
These wicked people, who refuse to listen to my words, who follow the stubbornness of their hearts and go after other gods to serve and worship them, will be like this belt—completely useless!

Churches need to stop focusing on how much money they are receiving in the offerings because God said he will provide and the offerings will be met but be more concerned on the souls that need to be saved. Start taking GOD to the World where it’s needed! Then you wonder why so many Christians are church hopping because they are not being fed nor receiving the salvation their soul is seeking, or they tend to find and seek real biblical teaching on their own through trusting in Christ and submitting totally to Christ alone and not man because man has let them down or they just plain give up completely and fall.

Romans 11:22
Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.

1 Peter 4:11
If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

Jeremiah 7:28
Therefore say to them, ‘This is the nation that has not obeyed the LORD its God or responded to correction. Truth has perished; it has vanished from their lips.

Deuteronomy 13:4
It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.

What Ministry and being a Christian is all about! BE A TRUE SERVANT!
Going to crack houses, bars, where the prostitutes work, juvenile detention homes, prisons, the homeless, the poor communities, The youth, the streets and Yes Churches, again I say CHURCHES, so that the congregations will get motivated and start doing GOD's work out on the streets!! By all means whatever way possible! Jesus’ ministry was not inside the four walls of a church building! He traveled miles and miles, city to city preaching, teaching and ministering God’s word! Are churches doing that? NO! Not too many at all! Many churches keep everything within their own walls! They are sometimes in their comfort zones and they are missing out on the most blessed part of being a Ministry, being a Christian and that is winning souls to God! Just claiming to be a Christian or working in a Ministry or being part of a church does NOT mean that you are doing the will of God. There are many devoted church goers that attend service every week just for appearances or to repent for what they do outside of the church walls deceiving not only themselves but the church. A lot of Churches these days are only about themselves and don’t take their ministry out to the streets where the need is much greater!

How can you bring folks into the church and save souls if you do not take the church to the streets? Did Jesus stay in one place? Absolutely NOT! And you wonder why so many Christian’s inside the church are going astray. Yes we much have a Church Home to go to for Worship but as Christians and the body of Christ we much be stepping outside the walls of the Church building and that includes the Leaders of the Church!

Romans 15:4
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.

Joshua 22:5
But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to keep his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

1 Samuel 12:14
If you fear the LORD and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and if both you and the king who reigns over you follow the LORD your God—good!

It is so imperative that as Christians we serve and obey Christ daily! That includes the Churches as well! We need UNITY in order to reach the Community! There is so much need in the world today and as Christians we must serve and obey God’s law’s and reach, teach and touch the lost souls that are seeking salvation and peace. However we cannot do it alone! Even the Christian’s in the Church are falling dropping like flies. Every Christian should have a spiritual support partner, just like in AA meetings where an alcoholic has a support partner, Christian’s need that too, someone they can trust, someone who is totally submitted to biblical standards and obeys God’s laws, someone they can turn too in time of spiritual need and support so they don’t fall. The world cannot afford to lose Christian’s back to the world! That’s what Satan wants! And he is doing a good job in our churches, leaders and even Gospel music artists through media!

Christians please WAKE UP…..see what is going on around you! Your SALVATION is at stake! Are you sure you will have Eternal Life with our Lord and Savior? You may need to check yourself. Ask God to show you and trust me he will. Christians are being deceived BIG TIME and they are falling for it! Satan is even using the Gospel Music industry to deceive us! Pay attention to some of the popular Gospel Artists and especially our Gospel Rap artists! Let the Holy Spirit show you and you will see especially in their music videos! I am totally shocked at the things I am seeing! Here is a few examples, Trip Lee’s new T-Shirt has the illuminati symbol all over it! Lacrae’s new video “Lord have Mercy” is demonic and you can see illuminati hand signs throughout the video! Listen to the lyrics, there is a dark deep demonic voice man with evil eyes saying “ Lord have Mercy, have pitty on your son, for what I once was to what I have become” and it appears that Lacrae & Tedashii is indicating that they were serving Christ but now they have now sold out to Satan, you see evil in Lacrae’s face, he doesn’t look right at all. You can see it throughout the video. Lacrae and everyone on Reach Records is being used as a vessel for Satan in the Gospel Rap industry to deceive our young Christians!! WAKE UP! And the video is dark and evil how can you NOT see it! This is REAL! I have been a fan of Lecrae myself but he has now changed and has lost his way. There is nothing Christ center about their music! It’s worldly! It’s Un-Godly! What is so sad is that so many young Christians are idolizing and following Lacrae and all on Reach Records as idols! And what does the bible say about idols? This is NOT ministry! This is Industry! Young Christians are being DECIEVED! WAKE UP!

Check out Lecrae’s Video “Lord Have Mercy” and see for yourself! What we MUST do as Christian’s! Is PRAY! Pray for all Reach Records artists! PRAY for their SALVATION! As Jesus said on the cross “Father forgive them, For they Not know what they Do”.

Christ is even being taken out of the Gospel music! The Gospel music industry tells the Gospel artists what to say and not to say in their lyrics. The industry has control and who controls the industry? Think about it! This is why we MUST GO HARD FOR GOD! Especially in the Gospel music arena! We are having a hard time as it is saving our young from the secular music and now we have to save them from the Gospel music as well? As Christians! We can NOT let that happen!

2 Kings 17:12
They worshiped idols, though the LORD had said, “You shall not do this.”

Zechariah 10:2
The idols speak deceitfully, diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain. Therefore the people wander like sheep oppressed for lack of a shepherd.

Proverbs 14:25
A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is deceitful.
Matthew 24:24
For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Only those with a true and sincere heart for GOD and that are totally submitted to his will really see the truth because the Holy Spirit reveals it. False teachers are around us more now than ever! Misleading our young adults because the younger Christians are just baby Christians and are still not fully grown in their relationship and their walk with God therefore our younger Christians are easy targets!

2 Chronicles 29:11
My sons, do not be negligent now, for the LORD has chosen you to stand before him and serve him, to minister before him and to burn incense.”

1 Timothy 4:6
If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.

Proverbs 12:17
An honest witness tells the truth, but a false witness tells lies.

Time to WAKE UP and see reality! Time is running out! There are lives and souls at stake here! We are the CHURCH! God gave us an assignment when we submitted our lives to him! That is to serve and obey him! We are called to be FAITHFUL SERVANTS! To minister in SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH! GOD’S TRUTH! We are HIS anointed and appointed! The Church must start getting into GOD’s will! I encourage Christians to please take some time every now and then, shut the world out just for a few days and get into God’s presence! Just you and HIM one on one! Read your word! Talk to the Father! Cry out to him! Give him your heart and he will show you TRUTH! Study and pray every day! God is with us every day! He is not someone you visit at a Church 1 or 2 days a week! He is in our lives daily! Be submissive unto GOD! And I promise you, he will reveal so much to you, you will be in total shock! Get outside of the church walls! Because we are the church! We need more evangelism and outreach! Our youth are dying! Our Brothers and Sisters in Christ are falling! So many deceivers are out there! It is going to take those that have a true heart, passion and desire for serving Christ to reach the lost! WE NEED UNITY in the BODY of CHRIST! And most of all there should be the LOVE of CHRIST among each and every Christian!

1 Corinthians 12:12
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.

LET’S GO HARD IN SERVING OUR KING! LETS UNITE AS ONE BODY IN CHRIST IN LOVE!
So we may have Eternal Life with HIM!

I value my salvation, question is do you?

Very interesting Article!

The black church has been a pillar in the black community for ages, being that beacon of light and safe haven for the weary.

Through its trials and tribulations, the Church has stood its ground as a social and spiritual resource for African American communities. Yet, with these acknowledgments comes the question of what exactly the Black Church should look like in the twenty-first century.

In his book, “Standing True to Our God? A Young, Evangelical’s Perspective on Reformation in the Black Church,” J. L. Moore highlights several examples of how facets of the modern black church experience are not reflecting the teachings of Christ and His apostles. In the spirit of love and appreciation for the Black Church in America, he implores African American Christians to strongly consider the need for biblical reformation in five crucial areas.

The Black Church in America is perhaps the most victorious institution in the African American community. Yet, when it is compared with sacred scripture, we find that the Black Church is falling short in very significant areas. This book not only highlights where members of the Church have strayed from the truths of scripture, but also offers a message of hope for those who are willing to embrace the need for biblical reformation.

What should the Black Church look like in the twenty-first century according to biblical teaching? This book explores various topics while providing stimulating answers to that crucial question.

“This book is very enlightening and challenging; it presents a clear understanding of the need for the Church to stand true to the Word of God. In a day and time when many are veering from the Word, Mr. Moore remains true to sound, biblical teaching; hopefully, you will also after reading this book.”

Silencing The Foolish

"For this is the will of GOD, that by doing good you may put to silence
the ignorance of foolish men." [1 Peter 2. 15]

Egotistical and arrogant foolishness are the humanistic, blasphemous
attacking criticisms that are against GOD'S HOLY WORD and HIS
people. "Professing to be wise, they became fools." [Romans 1. 22] "HE
WHO is enthroned in heaven laughs; the LORD mocks and ridicules them."
[Psalms 2. 4] Yes, the wicked man schemes
against righteousness but "the LORD laughs at him, for HE knows
that his day will come." [Psalms 37. 13]
Thus, the best way to silence foolish men, is by doing good.

"When you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is
commendable before GOD." [1 Peter 2. 20] "For it is better, if it is the
will of GOD, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil." [1 Peter 3.
17] "Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of GOD commit
their souls to HIM in doing good, as to a faithful CREATOR." [1 Peter 4.
19] "Shun evil and do good, and you shall abide forever." [Psalms 37. 27]

The LORD MESSIAH YESHUA is the greatest, most unsurpassed EXAMPLE of
this for "when HE was reviled, He did not revile in return; when HE
suffered, HE did not threaten, but committed HIMSELF to HIM WHO judges
righteously." [1 Peter 2. 23] "HE was oppressed and HE was afflicted,
yet HE was submissive, HE did not open HIS mouth; like a sheep being led
to slaughter, like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her, HE did not
open HIS mouth." [Isaiah 53. 7]

Of course, everyone has the right to reject every argument and even
ridicule such a life, but they must eventually come to see its sure
foundation. "When they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by
your good works which they observe, glorify GOD in the day of
visitation." [1 Peter 2. 12] "Do not forget to do good and to share,
for with such sacrifices GOD is well pleased." [Hebrews 13. 16]

The LORD YESHUA bid those who would "follow ME."
Furthermore, it is "the will of GOD" that we identify ourselves with our
wonderful LORD by "doing good" as we emulate our HEAVENLY FATHER. And
when the GOOD SHEPHERD, the OVERSEER of believers appears, those who
know HIM will be glorified. When we are sure of our FOUNDATION, we have
little to fear and tough times are nowhere near as tough as without HIM.
Such joy and hope we have!

Man is given the choice of how he will act out in this world; but the
junctions and highways have been set in place by the CREATOR. We have an
AWESOME GOD, and HE is on the throne ruling over the affairs of men. If
only we could see the path as OMNISCIENT GOD has always seen it, we
would have selected it as well. HE is worthy of all our praise and
worship, even in difficult times.

Praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal PEACE & LOVE.

BOASTING & PRIDE! IT GOTTA STOP!

Christians who brag and boast about what they have (material things) and what have done for people and what they can do for people isn’t that being prideful? AND talk about others constantly about being prideful? Are you doing what you do for GOD or for YOU? Who is the one gaining? GOD or YOU? What is your purpose?

1 Cor 1:31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."

Proverbs 16:18
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Pride is the easiest sin to commit and the most difficult to overcome,
even for CHRISTIANS. It is so easy to be proud of our strength,
wealth, race, education, position, intelligence or even poverty and
ignorance. Some are even proud of their humility…proud of not being
proud. There seems to be more pride and arrogance among Christian circles then in the secular world today. Remember pride is a sin…..
Do they even READ what the Bible says about the humble being exalted, NOT the prideful?!
Psalm 31:18
Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

They don't even want to admit their wrong, they're so busy looking at
how the 'other person was at fault' or looking at others to find others fault’s to cover their own. Everyone has fallen short of God’s glory it’s how we choose to live from that day forward is what matters. Do we choose to obey and follow GOD’s laws and HIS word?

All Christians do not pass Judgment on others and we should just pray for those and there are many people out there who do judge, prideful, boast or saying these ungodly things about others. Every last one of us who are Christians, are striving daily to be better today than we were yesterday so hopefully on this day, you see less horrible things coming from our Christian brothers and sisters.

Psalm 10:4
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.

We were made by God for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to praise and worship him and SERVE him and if you are spending your time on this earth doing anything other than that, then you are NOT in alignment with God and what he expects from you.....So, do not be deceived into believing that you do not have any works to do for God and expect to go right through those pearly gates without doing as God has instructed you to do...YOUR WORKS that you do on earth for God should be satisfactory enough to stand on it's own merits when you are called and judged by God....So ask yourself....What have I done for God to edify his people and to feed his ministries with my time and talents that will be pleasing to God?......Is it your own selfish PRIDE that is keeping you from doing what you must do for God to aid in the building of his Kingdom? Are you using your God given gifts and talents just within your own realm? Or are you using them to spread to the world and reach teach and touch others to build GOD’s Kingdom and not your own? We must see the imperfection in ourselves that needs correcting before we can point fingers at another....I wish that all of us will see that there is way too much work to do for us to look down our noses on one another and start serving GOD as he has instructed us to do so.

2 Corinthians 10:15
Neither do we go beyond our limits by boasting of work done by others. Our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our sphere of activity among you will greatly expand,

We should "humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD, and HE
will lift you up." <James 4. 10> And if there is any praise and
boasting – it should only be in the LORD ETERNAL, "! Blessing and
glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honour and power and might, be to
our GOD forever and ever. Amen" <Revelation 7. 12>
There is no boasting among those that know that their faith is a GIFT from God.

1 Cor 1:27-31
27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-and the things that are not-to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
Therefore Brothers & Sisters! Keep it Holy! Keep it Jesus! Be humble and graceful and love one another as CHRIST LOVES US! Our Father in Heaven loves us so much he wants us to be one BIG HAPPY FAMILY…..IS THAT POSSIBLE?

IT’S NOT ABOUT US!

IT’S ABOUT OUR LORD & SAVIOUR! Nothing is better than that!

I have been instructed to assemble the following personnel:

2 Discipleship Trainers
1 Deacon/Missionary Trainer
1 Youth Leader Trainer
2 Administration Trainers
1 Photo/Video Journalist, and

Fund raising committee, and support network to remain in the states.

All to HIS GLORY,

Pastor Anna
