WAKE UP CHURCH!!!!!!!! ARISE!!!!!!!! SOUND THE ALARM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Church must rid itself of worldly influences, man-made traditions, ego’s, pride, control & manipulation, .……it all boils down to getting rid of the fleshly—carnal man and putting the Holy Spirit back as the Head of the Church.
The Church must get rid of these religious spirits that have hidden God’s glory by casting a veil on a true relationship with God, so that the truth of God’s word will be seen in clarity.
Only then will we witness a true move of God in purifying His Church from fleshly and worldly influences.  Truly God desires an intimate relationship with His people so that His personality will be reflected through our lives, our actions, and our words to those around us.
We’ve all encountered people who look and act according to their prejudiced standards; aka… “Show-Christians”.   They pretend to have a relationship with Christ and yet have a nasty attitude towards others. They are condescending, arrogant, jealous, controlling, rude and hateful.  Their actions speak louder than their words!
Who are those people winning to Christ?   NO ONE!   Their focus is more on themselves; their appearance, their gifts & talents, their emotions, their desires,. .…they want all the attention on themselves.  They are too busy trying to impress others, show-offs; they act all self-righteous & pious, rather than represent a true Christ to a lost world.
There’s something to be said about the inward work of Christ in ones heart.  His inward work will produce an outward manifestation.  This means God will promote you!  It will not only be in your appearance it will also be in your attitude.  (Eph. 4:13)
We do not need another superstar leader in the Church to take us to the next level.  The Church needs to take its rightful position as the Body of Christ!
We are many members, yet we have only one Head…..Jesus!
We are a diverse body. The world has not really taken notice of Jesus because we are focused more on ourselves.  That’s why the spirit of religion has seemingly suffocated a true intimate relationship with Jesus.
The spirit of religion has us focused and consumed with offenses, jealousy, rules, procedures, superstar personalities, control, ego’s, money, unforgiveness, fame and selfishness!
The world can no longer see Christ in the Church because the Church has the world focused on me, myself, and I.   The world can no longer see Christ in the Church because sin has found comfort in the pews.     NO CONVICTION!    No True Repentance!     Show Christianity!!    NO CHANGE!
We are deceived into believing we can get to heaven by being good, nice, throwing our left over change in the bucket, acting pious and carrying a bible.   We continue to pretend we like each other and we don’t want to make others uncomfortable with their hidden sins.  We are also happy to be a ‘Christian’ as long as we can dress and act like the world……you know….’so we don’t look different’---we wouldn’t want to stand out—otherwise the world would not want to associate with us and then “how could we win them to Jesus?????”   We are too busy trying to fit in rather than live the consecrated life that Jesus died to give us.  He died to set us apart…..to be known as His people.  He places His mark upon us and we are trying to cover it up with the sins of the world.
The Church is going to experience God’s wrath so He can purify His bride.  He will do whatever it takes to prepare the Church for His Bridegroom.  
WARNING!!!!!!
Get ready Church the rumbling of an earthquake has begun!     
Get Ready------Change is coming!           Wake up Church!!!      Arise!    
Sound the alarm!
Jeremiah 6:16-20 (The Message)
Death Is on the Prowl
 16-20God's Message yet again:
   "Go stand at the crossroads and look around.
   Ask for directions to the old road,
The tried-and-true road. Then take it.
   Discover the right route for your souls.
But they said, 'Nothing doing.
   We aren't going that way.'
I even provided watchmen for them
   to warn them, to set off the alarm.
But the people said, 'It's a false alarm.
   It doesn't concern us.'
And so I'm calling in the nations as witnesses:
   'Watch, witnesses, what happens to them!'
And, 'Pay attention, Earth!
   Don't miss these bulletins.'
I'm visiting catastrophe on this people, the end result
   of the games they've been playing with me.

They've ignored everything I've said,
   had nothing but contempt for my teaching.
What would I want with incense brought in from Sheba,
   rare spices from exotic places?
Your burnt sacrifices in worship give me no pleasure.
   Your religious rituals mean nothing to me."
