Are you a Church-Builder or a Church-building?
Do you build up the Church, encouraging hearts of the Church in the Love of God? Or, are you just hold up the building by just paying the bills to the secular world?
Revelation 3:14-16 (KJV)
"And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 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 spue thee out of my mouth."
There are so many in church-buildings, that don't take the word of God seriously, even to ignore it. Unless it tickles their ears or promises abundance of the world. As if, paying God with a favor to keep the doors open, will "activate" and "unleash" the floodgates of financial blessings. There is no magical or sleek method that will unleash God's blessings. Who is in charge God or man? So, why is this doctrine taught in and by the Church-buildings?
God blesses on his own terms. He provides for the Faithful, not the Favor-filled.
Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV)
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
Yes, this is talking about those who call themselves believers. Let's not fool ourselves. We can't hide behind the smiling teeth of our Pastors, the Flamboyance Hats, the Praise Music, Nation's Laws, Long robes or even how we label ourselves. Is our heart for man or for GOD?
It is our Heart for God, which is the Heart of Christ. God does know the heart of man, but he also knows the Heart of Christ. If there wasn't a difference, he would had no need to send Yeshua.
Ephesians 3:17-21 (KJV)
"That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
Don't worry about what your heart say about YOU. Only that your Heart, says, "Christ dwells in me." That is the only Heart YHWH wants to see in you. That your Heart is renewed in the Likeness of Christ.
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
The Heart of Christ, means you are a NEW CREATION. No longer of this World, but of YHWH. You can't be a NEW CREATION without the Heart of Christ.
John 15:18-20 (KJV)
"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also."
Church-Buildings stop watering down the Gospel! Give the TRUE Gospel and Message of Christ its due Birth-Right. Lets get Real and stand above this World, not be fed by it, even as Esau, sold out his birthright. Ministers, if you are dealt only the portion to sustain the Flesh, but then you have killed the spirit.
I'm asking for the sake of our brothers and sister in the Kingdom of YHWH, for you to think about it:
Do you have the heart of man or the Heart of Christ?
Are you a Church-Builder or a Church-building?
Luke 12:42-48 (KJV)
"And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."
YHWH Bless, Peace & Prayers,
Pr. Aaron B. Wheeler, Minister
