I had two dreams that depicted the church – that has motivated the writing of this; I was petitioning God to show me what the church looked like today. Without getting into detail the just of it was one was like out of the Truman Show – and that life that was lived was fake and a sham. It was like there was a template, or filter like thing placed over – to prevent us to see the reality of Life. Then the other one was full of sexual perversion (I questioned God – about this dream because it was so offensive) but it was only revealing what was true though extremely vile. It depicted the relations between one another, within the church system – and was abhorrent in God’s sight. In short, it was the revealing of how the church system seeks to please one another rather than God.
In another time previous, I had asked God to show me the Body of Christ – and this is how I believe He answered. He gave me a glimpse of this magnificent live organism and it took my breath away. see this post; His Body.
She is the system, called church. She is full of dead man’s bones a brood of vipers. Self is what is nurtured and catered to, in the name of Jesus where allegiance is for the leader, denomination or ‘creed.’ The Old man still lives in this church. All kinds of (spiritual) adultery is practiced and revelled in. (Spiritual) incest, homosexuality and perversion of all kinds are freely committed and encouraged and condoned. The fruit that this church bares resembles what the world produces; divorce, depression, anxiety, porn addiction, gender confusion, hatred, rivalry, unforgiveness, jealousy, lusts of all kind, lovers of entertainment and pleasure, boasters and slanderers – is to name a few. God stirs with burning anger towards this church for it is putrid to His nostrils and His patience is coming to a close. He calls and warns continually, ‘Come out of her My people!’
Christ is His Beloved Son and the Head of the true Church that is without spot or wrinkle – for they are found In Him. This (true) Church is not harnessed in a system, to be controlled by man, or financed by money and ran like a business. For His Church is not like the world and it moves lives and has its being by His Spirit who leads in power and teaches all its members. They can hear His voice and are obedient to all that He says. This Church does not seek riches but looks for treasures found in Christ. They walk separate from the world and seek to maintain this separation. They live to not love their own lives, to seek to gratify their flesh, they lay down their lives daily so they may live His.
“Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.” Rev 18:4-5
