God Does Not Live In Walled up Buildings
Do going to places that Jesus said , Acts 7:48, “the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, or “he do not live in a house made of wood, stone or what ever,” make one a Christian? The answer is NO! Yet, there is a push to prove this scripture wrong.
Many pastors over 1900 years, more or less, has taught people just the opposite on how Jesus wanted people to worship God. Instead of in our hearts, pastors have seduced people into backward thinking by having them think that they must enter a walled up building(church) to seek God and pray for forgiveness or wants.
People honor Sunday as the day when God come down to man upon the altar in Spirit and consume the pastor to let the people be reminded that they are in the Lord's house and let all be silent. If people didn’t think this was not true they wouldn’t attend Church.
People even believe this is the Lord’s day or Sabbath day instead of Saturday which is the original Sabbath day. “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” Though this is not the way we worship. Most care more about the day set by man. if we didn't, then Saturday would be the day of worship and not Sunday, the first day of the week, If I wanted to get technical.
However, under the Christian church, none of this is applied because any day is a day of worship and honor to God because the word of God does not live on a certain day or in a building, but in our hearts. We are the temple of God, Why? Because as a Christian, we carry the word of God in us.
Therefore, choosing to remain worshiping on a certain day or in a building after the gospel has been shared around the world is fruitless as is seen today. People are worst than ever.
Rather than spreading the gospel to each other we meet, the pastor have us rushing back to the church as though there were some special power of God lingering in these building. They are wrong and it shows just little people know about God whom they claim to worship.
However, most ministers have and answer of scripture to fall back on, such as, “forget not to fellowship between one another,“ a scripture taking out of content. We Christians consume almost entire cities and towns in the United States. I’m sure there are always someone around to fellowship with or talk about the goodness of God or be reminded that we are never to forget our mission as a Christian.
Being walled in inside a church (building) has taking away the mission of the Lord and favor the worship of the pastor just like the worship of emperors in the old days. This happen when the head of the Church has convinced their followers that only they hear from the Lord. That as the leader, the control of the people is their authority from God. So one must praise them and give reverence to them just as they would if they was God.
This is a type of devil worship that bind the hand of Jesus in getting the word of God to those needing to hear it through those Christians that should be outside teaching those that has been lied to or confused on how to prepare and help themselves to build a better life and world here and worlds to come.
But pastors have gained such honor from their congregation until people will do and honor them in any type of situations over God. People actually respect pastors over God.
For example, people that drink alcohol, live in the rap and music world, do drugs, curse and other things have respect for the pastor or minister to not do these things in their presence but wait until they leave. They could care less for God or whom ever God has watching and taking notes, so to speak. People have more respect for the pastor than God, yet, they vocally say and is taught that God is watching everything one does.
This has been believed by people for centuries. In actuality church people could care less about God watching or having someone watching them because as soon as the pastor disappears some place or leave people are back disrespecting God without any fright or care.
I've been places where I was known as a minister by some which had no respect for me because I was not their pastor. They played their worldly music. No sooner than it was said their pastor was arriving, the music was cut. The pastor was asked to pray over food. They all acted like little good Christians.
The pastor's head was as high as God as he stood around speaking and shaking hands as though Jesus himself as just entered the building. They rushed to get him to pray. I listen as his prayers went up in smoke asking God to bless this house and the people and the food. I'm quite sure he knows his flock.
I knew them to. But when you are in another person's house you have one thing you can do. If you don't like it, you can leave or stay away from going on. Find your own space in your mind when you have to be there.
No sooner than the pastor departs, "I dream of the sound of music fill the room." This is with all the Church people that have family reunions, parties or outside mostly get together. At this point God mean nothing!
But on Sunday, you and these same people come into church now pretending to honor God, but once again, through the pastor. For it is the pastor they come to hear, grin and give claps to. Not God! It is the pastor they will come smiling and shake hand with and not God in righteous living. I came to church and showed my face to the pastor. So, I fulfilled my part to God. "Honey!" "You need to hear that preacher preach!" "Man he or she is bad!" "Pastor so and so can really throw down!", "Have you heard of him!"....Get my point!......
It would if one had that enthusiasm for telling others about God rather about the pastor, new outfits, shows, programs or money made. Nothing to others except, "I'll see you in church Sunday!'
Let me show you just how rotten and full of trickery Satan has bestowed upon the false church of today. It is clearly written in Acts below. Read it carefully. You want hear such a message in churches today. But as a Christian you know this, but I will go through it again just in case you heard or read it wrong.
Acts17:23-30, “For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.
24 "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.
25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.
26 From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.
27 God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
28 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
29 "Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone--an image made by man's design and skill.
30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.”
Some cannot understand this, so let me speak on that which you may be confused on. First, “the unknown God,” was people worshiping idols seeking a god they thought was real, not knowing anything about the true God. If they would have been taught by some one that knew of the true God, then they would not be as backward and unlearned as they were.
Such is the same with people today. The God they should be worshiping they seem to know nothing of. They spend more time with Satan than God. They think the beauty of the buildings and objects on the walls are enchanting to God and thereby earn salvation by joining with it. Nothing can be father from the truth.
It is also made clear that God does not live in walled up building as pastors have gotten you thinking he does. There is nothing you can raise, collect or build that will enticed God because God has it all. This is scripture.
These giant mega churches are built to satisfy and be worship by those that build them. They cannot and will never get you into heaven no matter how much you flock to them. Paying money, gold and silver or decorating these building with great beauty inside and out, mean nothing to God.
God gave us life and everything else including salvation through Jesus Christ in hope that we would come to our senses and realized that God want to preserve and keep us through eternity for a purpose for those that truly worship him. Something that this false Church has never come to grips with. Ignorance is still in the people and the people must repent and live for God the right way. This cannot be done while sitting in walled up churches while those outside are perishing because of our lack of knowledge and caring.... You now see the damaging results of doing nothing in the United States!
Another Thing .....How to become a Christian
People even come to church to repent as though it cannot be done outside of a church and must be done by a pastor or minister. Not so! There is no one in the United States that does not no the name of Jesus and the name of God. And that to come to God, they must come through Jesus, thereby, asking forgiveness of sins and going and sin no more the best they can. This mean to stay within the realm of presenting attitudes and characters fitting for people calling themselves Christians.
You don't need to go to a church to ask forgiveness for your sins nor meet with a pastor. You can do it any where and at any time you are ready. All you need to do is be sorrowful of the life you now live and want to change and sincerely want forgiveness for how you have or is living it and really want to change. Stop cold turkey and read your life manual (bible). Until you're stopped, you are not a Christian.
If you continue in sin then stop down the line, you will have to ask forgiveness again. But do not play with God. He will not be made a fool of. Too many times and you may be asking forgiveness in vain. I would hate to be in this situation. Caught between knowing and not sure. That's enough to seen you on a drinking binge.
Note: God will forgive your pass sins if you are sincere and sin no more. God will not change your life for you as you've been told. You have to change your own life according to the word of God to be approved by God. In other words, "go and sin no more." the bible say.
For example, If you want your driver's licensed, you come up before the tester. But it is you that will have to convince the tester that you can drive a car on the highway based on the rules and regulation outlined in the driver's book given by the state that you must read, past and obey on the highway.....
I hope you understand both reasoning. They are the same.
If you do not feel like you are living in accordance to the will of God you can ask forgiveness anytime. If you think you are OK then you should check yourself to see if you are crossing those T’s and dotting those I’s. You are not perfect and you will make mistakes, but shouldn't be the ones so great you ask forgiveness for.
Ask forgiveness everyday for things you did or said you are unaware of or made the mistake of saying or doing. Yes, you will sin. Let no one fool you. If you know it's a great sin before you do it, you are not a Christian. Being a Christian you should have a conscious. Control yourself. However, some things cannot be controlled. So the bible say, "get angry but do not sin."
God is not on earth neither is Jesus but his word is. This is the only closeness you will get until the day of calling. Believing and living in his word mean that God is always there with you. Not in Spirit but in the Spirit word that in your heart.
The last verse strictly mean that in the past some may even have gotten away with stuff, but under Christ it is no longer accepted. We must repent, change and reject the old life and project the new life, the new us which is the only way God can receive us. The new us is the Temple of God. God live in us and not a walled up building.
2 Corinthian 5:1 “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”
This proof positive that we are who God is seeking and not a walled up church. The earthly tent is us. When we did we have another body, and immortal body that will be given to us. This immortal body will not be built or given to us by earthly hands, but by God himself.
Who have you brought to God sitting behind a walled up building? What have you taught them? Was it the truth? What are you teaching? Do you deserve to be with God? What is you mission? Why do God want you in heaven? is it to each a slice of pie? What do you have to offer God? What and where could God use your talent? If you died right now, what good would you be to God? What good will your pastor be to God?
With so many churches, why is church people more divided now than anytime in the history? You went to church again, now what?
All Christians are suppose to be ministers. That is, you are suppose to be ministering. Are you doing that? Are you bound from doing that. You can start your ministry right here right now by helping pass along truth that cannot be disputed. Just make it a habit to send all people you can to this Website to be renewed with truth and strength.
You can't afford to tell God I did this or that that had no impact on people. He will say, "depart from me, I know you not." Therefore, all your doing was in vain. "for in vain they worshiped me.".......Think about it!
