HOT, COLD OR LUKEWARM?
“As a whole, the church system has been a colossal failure. Most churches don’t even vaguely resemble what Jesus told His followers to do. Have you become like the old church in your heart? Are you still dropped out? Do you still live like Jesus’ disciples? When people see your sample and visit your home, do they see something different? Or are you just like everyone else, trying to make a living and survive? Just to preach the Gospel or even be a missionary is not that different; that’s the surface emphasis of most churches and preachers. There are plenty of evangelists who are preaching Jesus and getting people saved. Some churches and church members do too, and they even preach a pretty good message. But what we’re talking about is the church system as a whole, where in some large denominations such as the Southern Baptists (with 15 million members), 95 percent of their members never witness and tell a soul about Jesus! And they and many others spend billions of dollars on their church buildings and church system that could have gone to helping the lost.” Maria Fontaine
“I know thy works that thou art neither cold nor hot: i would thou wert cold or hot. so then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, i will spew thee out of my mouth.” revelation 3: 14, 15.
“I believe that one reason the church of god at this present moment has so little influence over the world is because the world has so much influence over the church.”
Charles H. Spurgeon
- What is your goal in life?
- How would you describe your personal lifestyle?
- What kind of sample of a Christian are you on a daily basis?
- How much compromise of your convictions have you allowed in your life?
- How do you spend your time?
- When was the last time you witnessed to someone in depth, and then followed up on that person?
- If people were to spend a day observing you as an individual, what would they conclude is your profession?

“THEREFORE SHALL THE OLD VESTURES BE REMOVED and she shall be clothes in a new garment and a new look and all things shall become new and old things shall pass away and I will have a new bride who will love Me and obey Me and do My will and bear Me children, no longer barren as she was, for this is My Will for this last generation, and I will take the weak things to confound the mighty, the foolish things to bring to naught the wisdom of the wise and raise up her that was not as though she were.” prophecy Old Church New Church
“My children, this is the breeding ground of flatlanders! This is how so many in the world, who begin as idealistic and even searching individuals, turn cold and apathetic. They have to have money to live and they don’t know how else to get it, so they turn to the typical job. Slowly it numbs their senses and sucks them into the matrix of the System, the conformity of the world.That’s why I gave you a better way. Yes, living by faith is a better way! I didn’t say it was an easier way‚ but it is a better way. This is My general counsel to you.” Jesus speaking.
Christianity is decaying and going down into the gutter because the god of modern Christianity is not the God of the bible……..A.W.Tozer Revelation 3:14, 15

“This is not a battle that can be lost; it must be won, there are no two ways about it! We must win, for Heaven and Earth depend on it.” Jesus Speaking
