I had a dream.
I was sitting and conversing with God and He said to me: Kimberly, do my will
I replied: But God so many that you've called seem to get away with preaching a false gospel, sleeping with the people they are called to minister to, lying in the pulpit, refusing to preach on sin because they are in habitual, practicing lifestyles, turning people away with their meanness, coldness and lack of love for your people. those who gossip about the people you called them to minister to..etc... etc...
God said: Kimberly, do you really believe that those who are in these positions that remain unrepentant after I have given them chance and room to repent escape my judgment? Does my word not say that judgment begins in the house? And that those that have sinned in the law will be judged by the law?....
God said: Kimberly, Many a Preacher Are Now In Hell.
Within a second, I found myself in a room in Hell. The sign on the door said: The Preachers Room. The Temperature setting said 100 times the burn, the torture, the memory.
I saw preacher after preacher. Many in their tailor-made suits. Many with their collars still on. Many reading the Bible and crying. Many Screaming as they saw flashbacks of the warnings of God, the call for repentance, and the many who under their leadership and because of their leadership had turned away from God.
I started crying, and my whole body begin convulsing. I stood frozen with grief and sadness. Then with the wind of God's breath, when He said...Go and have a chat with them, I was pushed closer.
I went to the first one and asked...why are you here?
The preacher responded...Because I kept thinking that God winked at the fact that although I was sleeping with various women in the church and hurt their feelings and caused them to turn away from God because of witness and leadership, people kept getting saved after He used me to preach His word.
I went to the second..and asked...why are you here?
The preacher replied, because I never sought God for His Word, instead I preached feel good sermons that increased the membership of my church and therefore my salary, but I left my congregation hungry and desolate of proper food.
To the third, who I found thoroughly searching the Scriptures, I asked why are you reading the Bible now? The preacher replied because I hope to now receive the very faith/salvation that comes from hearing the Word that I offered to all week after week, yet never really took serious enough to apply to my own life nor to accept salvation though I knew that I wasn't really saved. (Too bad, this preacher didn't read the word for self, otherwise this preacher would have known that there are no second chances: After death, comes the judgment)
He preached a Savior in whom he himself did not know.
Many were standing watching their whole ministerial lives past in front of them with emphasis of the many times they were called to repent, called to be true.
Each one with a different story.
But the one who caught me most off guard was the preacher who was sitting on the ground, with his hands covering his ears, in torment and yelling: Why didn't I listen Lord, Why didn't I take heed? And when I got close, all I could hear was this man preaching, powerfully, sermon after sermon.
And I turned to God and said... I don't understand God...every sermon he preached is the unadulterated Word, the life-given, life transforming Gospel, everything sounds corrects, he's obviously preaching your Word...why is he here? ....
God replied: he is here because the word that I gave him each time, he never thought it was for him. He was righteous in his own eyes, full of himself. He always thought that the word was to be preached at "them". He preached powerfully because the sermons were anointed by me, but he never received them for himself. And now, though I gave him chance after chance, he is listening to all the times I spoke and he excused himself from it.
God then turned to me and said...when you pen your teachings/sermons, remember that you are drawing up indictments against your own soul.
God said...I rather have you run like Jonah, until you submit wholeheartedly with the assignment I gave you or I rather have you humble yourself and sit down until you are healed and have let go of your transgressions...than to EVER think I am winking at your lifestyle or your lack of proper leadership or that I am pleased with you, because I use you to for my Kingdom. Using you is about ME....not about you.
***THIS DREAM ID NOT REAL...but the fact of the matter is that today there are so many "ministers" who play a lot of games with God and make the grave mistake of thinking that because God still uses them that God is "okay" with or overlooking their lifestyles.
Now some of you may be saying well God knows my heart...GROW UP IN THE WORD! We expect that of babes. Like the title of the movie..."A few good men"....God is calling a few faithful ministers---and He is expecting us to be servants---those who will love and serve Him and others---but not at the expense of watering down His Word. God is calling all of the Pastors who have girlfriends and sex-friends in the congregations to repent of such wickedness. God is calling Pastors and Leaders to stop gossipping about those you are called to SERVE and using the "Holy Pulpit" to tell people off! God is calling for Leaders to stop manipulating those who they lead into financial endorsements that seek to satisfy and build them, their families, their goals, and not meeting the REAL NEEDS of the community inside and DIRECTLY outside of their churches. God is calling for single male Preachers to stop sleeping with young women in the church, leading them on and causing them to leave the church....Those are just a few things--nothing in particular, but the key point and warning is this......
Like it or not, God is holding us HIGHLY accountable for those who are called to serve, minister, and lead. He never expected nor asked for us to be perfect, but He does expect us to be sincere in heart, WILLFULLY fighting daily to not be engaged in any habitual lifestyle of sin-------especially when they hurt others, lead others astray, and can help them form a negative and incorrect of opinion of God---BECAUSE OF US, THE LEADER, THE PASTOR, THE MINISTER, THE TEACHER.
If you want to play around with God and go to hell by way of the church, go....
But God takes it very serious when people are falling away BECAUSE OF US.
Nothing scares me more than to say that I am minister called to serve God yet hear God say ...depart from me....I called you to serve and add to the Kingdom, and because of the way you lived and treated people, people have turned away from me.
And may we stop making people Preachers, before they are even Born-Again Christian.
And please...please do NOT think that by being a water-down preacher (all grace and mercy and love--with no talk of sin, holiness, righteousness, obedience, accountability, being set apart)---please do not think that because you CHOOSE a soft version of the Gospel that you nor the people you lead with you will escape the responsibility and judgment of it---because it is in the Word of God!!!!!
If we know that we are guilty of any offense, and we are still alive today....Let us thank God right now, and TURN from our evil and ungodly ways. Let us walk a responsible manner. God is not smiling at your sin because you look good or because you are charismatic....REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND.
A HOLY CALLING WILL NOT SAVE AN UNHOLY MAN/WOMAN. The preachers in hell can testify to that.
Love you all, consider the Word. Read 2 Corinthians 6:1-10
