 It’s The Church Not America That Must Change!

 

Many including Christians believe that for America to be restored to its greatness that it must change and embrace its Christian heritage.

They are wrong America’s greatness came from pride and self righteousness. They are the root of all sin. But the fault does not lie with America it lies with the Church!

“If My People who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14.

America is not GOD’s people Christians (The Church) are GOD’s people. We are the ones who must humble ourselves (pray and seek His face), repent of our sins (turn away from our wicked ways). Then He will heal our land, Proverbs 14:34.

What are the sins of the Church in America?

Pride – There is no unity and love for one another (John 13:34-35, 1 John 4:7-11); churches, Christian TV and radio networks, ministries, denominations all compete against one another.

Greed – Growing bigger, making more money (so we can do more works) is the same goal the world has.

Immorality – lying, cheating, stealing, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, abortion, all exist in the Church.

Laziness – The Church does not belong in politics or the social issues of the world (then who does?). The Church (individual believers) does very little evangelism to the lost, we have programs supported by the few who pray an give and done by the even fewer, Matthew 9:35-38.

Disobedience – Matthew 10:1, Mark 16:14-18, Matthew 28:18-19, Hebrews 10:12-13. The Great Commission! The Church worldwide has failed to disciple the nations or to make GOD’s enemies His footstool. I do not know of a single Christian nation, but there are several Muslim nations; nations that the government is supported or controlled by the religious leaders. Israel was founded by GOD to be an example of a nation that served Him in every area of life and society. It’s leaders whether Judges, Prophets, Priests, or Kings were to lead the nation in the ways of GOD’s Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. The leaders of Israel were to look to GOD for guidance, wisdom, grace, and mercy (humble themselves, pray, and seek His face) so that when Christ came to declare the Kingdom of GOD was at hand the people would know what He meant and how they should respond.

 

America has never been Christian nation (a nation discipled to the Lordship of Jesus Christ)! There were many communities and colonies founded by true believers who were seeking a land where they could worship GOD in freedom from government persecution. There were many true believers involved in the rebellion against England the founding of our nation, but freedom of religion meant that all religions were welcome and equal. Over time secular humanism has made great gains in our government and society. The Church has drawn back with little resistance and now our nation is on the brink of losing all of the grace and blessings it has receives because of the Church.

 

For there to be revival in America there must first be revival in the Church!

It is the Church’s primary function to find the lost and bring them into the Light! They are not lost as in missing for GOD knows them and where they are at all times, they are lost from the Kingdom of GOD being held captive in satan’s kingdom of darkness. It is the Churches responsibility to take the Light of GOD’s Kingdom to them, dispelling the darkness so they can see GOD’s Kingdom and gift of salvation, Matthew 16:16-19.

But many denominations, churches, ministries, and Christians act like the lost are their enemies or something to be avoided. GOD’s enemies are not people but principalities, powers and spiritual darkness and the few people who willingly and knowingly serve satan’s kingdom of darkness. Most people are simply lost and need us to fine them! It is not the Churches job to tell them what rotten sinners they are and, that they are going to hell, it is the Churches job to show them that GOD’s love and salvation is for them. It is not he Churches job to judge and reject them. It is the Churches job to love them and show them that GOD’s love and salvation is for them.

Churches must stop stealing people from each other. Churches must stop watering down the Gospel with programs meant to draw the “good” people of the community. Big is not better! In any Church in America why are there few who pray and tithe and even fewer who do the work of the ministry? Why where there is a ‘mega’ Church is the community not changed by the power of the Gospel? Why when there are more than one ‘mega’ Churches is the city not turned upside down by the power of the Gospel? It’s because the Church is not growing through evangelism but by moving ‘Christians’ from one program driven church to another. The Church needs to be about the business of evangelizing their community by prayer walking the streets, fasting, witnessing, outreaches that meet the felt need of the lost, or whatever the Holy Spirit is leading in.

 

So as a believer what am I (and you) doing in my home, work place, and community to bring light into the darkness?
