In todays society we have alot of/ to many people who are so in love with/ have knew revelatoins for us from God. Now the Church is being asked about it's relevance. The disturbing thing about this is that the Question is being asked by church attendees/ the worldly folks. In all my days i honestly have not heard such blasphemy from inside the body as i do today. We must first realize and understand that the body of CHRIST has many members yet there is one body. The Church is and will always be relevant. You see we must begin to follow this commandment(John 15:12b That ye love one another, as i have loved you.) Now we have all sorts of fame seekers, money-grabbers, philosophies, theologies, books, magazines, leaflets, and pamphlets, most of all everyone is getting these great revelations, on who God is and what he is saying/ sensationalizing the word of God. Never do you hear that any of these revelations add up to CHRIST. never have you heard that sowing a seed of money is the way out of bondage nor the way to salvation/ not from the mouth of God you haven't. You must know this in-order to understand what i am writing/saying. Acts the 8th chapter9th verse/ but there was a certain MAN, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and BEWITCHED the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom THEY ALL GAVE HEED, FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST, SWAYING, THIS MAN IS THE GREAT POWER OF GOD. and to him they had great regard, BECAUSE THAT OF A LONG TIME HE HAD BEWITCHED THEM WITH SORCERIES. BUT WHEN THEY BELIEVED PHILIP PREACHING THE THINGS CONCERNING THE KINGDOM OG GOD, AND THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, THEY WERE BAPTIZED, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN. THEN SIMON himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, be-holding the miracles and signs which were done. You see the preaching of the Kingdom of GOD/ and the name of JESUS CHRIST, tore down the strong-hold and broke the chains, miracles were then performed and healings and deliverances took place. But it seems now that if you can purchase the sermon series/ the books/ or attend the conferences/ these things wiill be made possible. These are phony doctrines and lies from the pit of hell. reading the WORD of GOD and WATCHING as well as PRAYING i have come to understand why HELL enlarges it's borders.

Same chapter 14th verse Now when the Apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had RECEIVED the WORD of GOD, they sent unto yhem Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. (AND WHEN SIMON SAW THAT THROUGH THE LAYING ON OF THE APOSTLES' HANDS THE HOLY GHOST WAS GIVEN, HE OFFERED THEM MONEY) NOTE:after he saw the power/awesomeness of GOD he wanted to Purchase it instead of receive it.(SAYING GIVE ME ALSO THIS POWER, THAT ON WHOMSOEVER I LAY HANDS, HE MAY RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST. NOTE: alot of people are being or have been be-witched into believing false things, as i stated before the gifts of god cannot and will not be purchased with money. BUT PETER SAID UNTO HIM, THY MONEY PERISH WITH THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST THOUGHT THAT THE GIFT OF GOD MAY BE PURCHASED WITH MONEY. THOU HAST NEITHER PART NOR LOT IN THIS MATTER: FOR THY HEART IS NOT RIGHT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. REPENT THEREFORE OF THIS WICKEDNESS, AND PRAY GOD, PERHAPS THE THOUGHT OF THINE HEART MAY BE FORGIVEN THEE. FOR I PERCEIVE THAT THOU ART IN THE GALL OF BITTERNESS, AND IN THE BOND OF INIQUITY.

Now it is most important for us to know that the reason we are in dire straits as a body is just what happened to Simon here. Peter rebuked him for bitterness and sin. Now the Church is being told that we should not rebuke any of their wrong-doings and to let GOD do the Judging. I ask is this right/ Biblical? NO it is not for GOD told Ezekiel the Prophet that if he did not warn the righteous as well as the wicked of their iniquities and either were to die in them that their souls would be required of them / but the blood would be on his hands. So why is it so wrong for the Church to point out iniquity, to rebuke and extol/ it seems to me that if we don't we are neither hot nor cold.

Verse 24 Then answered Simon, and said, pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. And they, when they had preached the WORDof the LORD, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the GOSPEL in many villages of the Samaritans. You see that Peter's rebuke led Simon to repentance. Led him to fear God and stop trying to play God/ so in-order for the Church to be the Church. WE must once again begin to let GOD be TRUE and everyman a LIAR. Stop buying books and DVD's and read the WORD of GOD for Ourselves, studying to show ourselves approved as workman of God rightly dividing the WORD of TRUTH. Then we will see miracles and Healings, demons being cast out by the power of the Holy Ghost. So now my brethren
