Pulpits of Shame
Flee from Charismatic Deceptions
I am sure you have all heard of those blasphemous ministries which mediate a spirit which they call the 'Holy Ghost' or 'Holy Spirit' that causes people to laugh uncontrollably, collapse onto the floor, bark like dogs, hiss like snakes and otherwise descend into carnal mockery of the Most High. In one charismatic church a pastor wore a dog collar and a chain as he crawled up the aisles, his wife crying out: 'Wheresoever he leads, I shall follow'. In another the preacher told the congregation to put away their bibles as they wouldn't need them anymore. I could not believe my ears and eyes when yesterday I accidentally came across a minister who claims that while he preaches and screams his periodic farting is apart of his anointing. Have the churches gone completely insane??
Today's lawless Christian churches are either going stoney cold or becoming raving lunatic. Even the simple message of salvation is no longer being heard. People are too busy being entertained by their leaders filled with mocking, demonic spirits passing themselves off as the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit). We now find ourselves in the situation where millions of so-called 'evangelical' Christians not only know nothing about Yahweh's Law (Torah) but don't even know who the true Yah'shua (Jesus) is. They have become part of a huge, blaspheming circus. Little wonder that the atheists pour scorn on religion and little wonder that their political activitists call their religion the 'opium of the people'. For that kind of religion is.
Let there be no misunderstanding. When the authentic Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) fills a man or woman, there is conviction of sin, revelation about righteousness (as measured by Torah), and judgment for sin. This message is no longer being preached by these lawless charalatans who stand under severe condemnation for the promotion of their false fleshy entertainment gospels.
To those who are sinning and refuse to desist, the biblical Yah'shua (Jesus) may rightly be said to be the "inconvenient Messiah". Here at Messianic Evangelicals we preach the Inconvenient Messiah to those who have been hoodwinked by all the fake sugar-daddy ones. If you are a part of the charismatic bandwagon, now is the time to meet Him as he really is and not as you have been told or as you have experienced through charismatic witchcraft.
"Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness (Torahlessness), and sin is lawlessness (Torahlessness). And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim (God) was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of Elohim (God) does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God" (1 John 3:4-9, NKJV).
