Are You Sick and Tired of "playing church?"

So many people are sick & tired of phone-show Christians. They are sick & tired of playing church, sick & tired of traditional church svc, sick & tired of the same old messages with yesterdays mold.
I am one of ‘those’ people who is sick & tired of “playing church.” I am grieved by the same old dried up anointing. No...thing is fresh or new! Old wine skins gone bad—dried up and hidden behind ‘flowery’ patches.

How about you? Are you sick & tired of playing church?
I am grieved by the same rhetoric for revival. Most people wouldn’t recognize revival if it bite them on the leg. Revival begins in our hearts, not in a church building. It can’t be ...forced, faked or ‘convinced”. A true revival is experienced not announced!
I’m sick & tired of being told I’m in the presence of God. If we were truly in the Holy presence of Jehovah—Jesus Christ, we would be changed from glory to glory. Just as Moses was changed by being in God’s presence, we too would be drastically changed. (Ex 33)
We would glow with His Holy presence whereby change would occur. No one would have to tell you, you were in His presence-----you would know it beyond a doubt! NO Question!
If we truly were in the Holy presence of God we would drop to our knees and worship Him (see Rev. 19:4) rather than con’t our regularly scheduled agenda with a ‘matter-of-fact’ attitude.
If we truly were in the Holy presence of God we would not con’t to live under the influence of the demonic spirits of: control & manipulation, fear & intimidation, jealousy, hatred, favoritism, unforgiveness, lovelessness, meaningless words, prejudices, phoneyness, bloated wind-bags or people allergic to God…..’
Sadly most of the “church” today has lost the fear of God. “Church” has become a safe haven for sin! No conviction! “Church” dose not want to offend the sin! Most people do not want to change---it’s comfortable and easy to play ‘church’. Change is painful!!!!
If we were truly in the Holy presence of God we would see supernatural healings. Lives would be changed. Yet……we see the same people at the alter wk after wk w/o change. Still sick ---still sinning. Why?
Do you have the courage to rise up and change? Our families, churches, cities, nation and God’s kingdom need us to boldly arise and change. Jesus desires to have an intimate relationship with me. it requires me to change…which means I must totally die to my flesh, will & emotions!
“Wasn’t I the one? God? it had to be me, I’m the only God there is--- the only God who does things right and knows how to help. So turn to me and be helped----saved!----everyone, whoever and wherever you are. I am God, the only God there is, the one and only. I promise in my own name: every word out of my mouth does what it says. I never take back what I say. Everyone is going to end up kneeling before me. Everyone is going to end up saying to me,”Yes! Salvation and strength are in God!” Isa 45:21-24 The Message Bible
Change starts with me! Jesus loves me!
