Ever since the birth of the church at Pentecost, Satan has busily acculturated our perception of the church, distorting it into a form indistinguishable from what the Bible portrays. One of Satan’s prime achievements for this acculturation was established over 1,600 years ago when ecclesiastical preeminence became the norm. Throughout the centuries a small but elite group kept reshaping the church by diminishing Christ’s preeminence and replacing it with their preeminence. For this to solidly take hold it was crucial the elite restructure the church so the masses would become obedient spectators.
You were born into this distortion and if you’ve been a consistent churchgoer, then its experiential grasp has you in a vice grip. Only God can enable you to break free from such solidified acculturation. For myself, God has taken me on a long journey to see clearly enough to put together a guide, not only to help see the issue clearly, but to help those inspired to become Reformation leaders.
This guide is not for those looking for a quick answer. I do have a short synopsis with pictures, but without the deeper effort, it will be like the seeds that fall on the stony places that quickly dry up and die.
I’m sure you are all familiar with this Bible passage on the Laodicean Church.
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 3:14-22
This is the predominant church of today that will continue unabated unless there are those who call upon God for the eye salve to see and then with determination and perseverance, tackle this issue by becoming a part of a desperately needed church Reformation.
