There’s a poison inside the body of Christ

There’s a poison inside the body of Christ. It is a growing ache, a toxin of self. People are happy to sing the songs, to nod their heads in agreement to profess me with their lips but their hearts are not with me. They love this world. They love the idea of me, but in their hearts they do not know me.

They do not love me. They love themselves and the world that they have created around them. It is familiar and comfortable and predictable, and many of them don’t want to leave it. They don’t want to let go of their kingdoms and exchange them for mine. To follow me means to drop what is in your hand and whatever is weighing you down. To place everything that has defined you up to that point to the side, and trust in my leading, as I direct your steps.

People are hesitant to follow me because they do not believe that I am good. They have twisted and convoluted perceptions of who I am and what my character is. If they do not believe that I am good, and trustworthy, omnipotent and omniscient, they will not fall into step behind me. They will trust in their own perceptions, what they see, what they hear, what they feel and what they think they know in their minds. This is what is real to them. More real than myself or my voice.

So they stay on their own paths, diverging from mine. They see me from a distance, keeping me apart, yet in view. They don’t want to deny me, but they don’t want to know me either.

Matthew 4:19
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Isaiah 29:13
The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.

  1. They can’t follow what they don’t acknowledge. They don’t acknowledge the voice of the living God because they’ve been duped by the spirit of Antichrist (AKA The devil) that dwells within every soul from birth. In complete denial they haven’t truly been transformed, regenerated, BORN AGAIN! In bondage with the world and the lies it teaches, telling them it’s perfectly normal to “Screw Up” occasionally and ask for forgiveness, never really having deep remorse and fear of the consequence of their sin. They have been taught that their sins past, present and “future” are forgiven. In complete denial their sin is the very reason they CAN’T ACKNOWLEDGE the actual calamity of their sin and that it’s keeping God distant. That there is no such thing as a Born Again “Sinner”!

    1John 5:18-21
    18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
    19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
    20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
    21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

    1John 3:4-9
    4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
    5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
    6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
    7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
    8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
    9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    Jer 9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
