There is such an overwhelming amount of Bible prophecy that has and is being fulfilled that we cannot help but look at it and see that we are in the time zone of being right at the Trumpet of the Lord and the Rapture of the Church. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
As I thought about what aspect of the end time prophecy that the Lord wanted me to teach on today the subject of the Laodicean Church kept coming up in my spirit. So guess what, that is what I will be teaching on today.
THE LAODICEAN CHURCH:
First of all there were 7 literal churches during the time that the Apostle John was writing the Book of Revelation under the inspiration of the Lord and each church received a message. One with no rebuke which was the Church of Philadelphia however the other end of the spectrum was the Laodicean Church which had an abundance of rebuke from the Lord.
These churches were not only actual churches of that period of time that John was writing Revelation but they are representative of the churches of today.
The Laodicean Church was called the lukewarm church and The Lord sharply rebuked the church for their indifference. The Laodicean Church was a city which received mineral waters which were hot when they were coming to the city but by the time they came to their designated spot the water had become LUKEWARM. SO THAT WATER ACTUALLY TYPIFIED THE SPIRITUAL CONDITION THAT THE CHURCH LOCATED IN THAT CITY WAS IN.
In Revelation 3:14-22 we see the problems that were in the Laodicean Church, IT WAS NOT PRETTY.
We see this same Luke warmness in many Christian Churches around the world. It is a very serious condition to be in. Jesus said: “I KNOW THY WORKS, THAT THOU ARE NEITHER COLD NOR HOT; I WOULD THAT THOU WERT COLD OR HOT. SO THEN BECAUSE THOU ART LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOR HOT, I WILL SPEW THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.” Revelation 3:15-16
FROM THIS WE CAN SEE THAT THERE IS NOTHING THAT UPSETS OUR LORD MORE THAN BEING LUKEWARM AND TRYING TO STRADDLE BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE HAVING ONE LEG IN THE WORLD AND ONE IN THE CHURCH. GOD DESPISES THAT CASUAL ATTITUDE TOWARD HIM AND THE THINGS OF HIM.
FIRST OF ALL THE CURRENT LUKEWARMNESS IN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES ALL OVER THIS WORLD IS A SPIRITUAL EPIDEMIC.
The Luke warmness has come from an indifferent attitude toward the Lord and His Church.
Indifference in coming to church weekly and with the attitude that if they go they are putting in their time for that week but as they sit there in church they do not want to be there. Their mind wanders to everything other than worshipping the Lord and then listening to the Word when it is being taught.
They do not want to volunteer for anything, just put in their time and out the door. I WONDER WHAT THEY DO WHEN THEY HAVE A FIRE IN THEIR LIFE AND THEY NEED JESUS TO PUT IT OUT?
These same lukewarm people usually don’t read the Word or pray to amount to anything. Thus they do not honor the Lord. 2 Timothy 3:5 HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS BUT DENYING THE POWER THEREOF FROM SUCH TURN AWAY.”
I AM NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT MAIN LINE DENOMINATIONAL CHURCHES BUT ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES ON THE PLANET. THERE IS SOME OR A LOT OF LUKEWARMNESS IN EVERY CHRISTIAN CHURCH.
FROM THE CHURCHES I HAVE ATTENDED OVER MY LIFETIME AND MINISTERED IN MANY CHURCHES AS A TRAVELING EVANGELIST BELIEVE ME IT IS EPIDEMIC TO SOME DEGREE OR OTHER NOT ONLY AMONG THE CONGREGATION BUT AMONG SOME OF THE CLERGY AS WELL.
I BELIEVE IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO A SPIRIT OF RELIGION, INDIFFERENCE AND LAZINESS.
WHEN I WAS OUT WALKING THIS MORNING THE LORD SPOKE TO MY SPIRIT AND SAID TO ME THAT MUCH OF THE TIME ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS FOR CHRISTIANS TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE IS SUCCESS AND PROSPERITY.
When many Christians are going through trials and tribulations they will continue to attend church and make an effort to live for the Lord. But when they are blessed of the Lord and they are out of that hard situation they were in, many leave the church and you never see them again. SOMETIMES IT’S DANGEROUS FOR CHRISTIANS TO BE BLESSED.
“NEVERTHELESS I HAVE SOMEWHAT AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST LEFT THY FIRST LOVE.” Revelation 2:4
I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I DO NOT WANT THE LORD TO SPEW ME OUT OF HIS MOUTH!!!
LIKE I SAID IT IS AN EPIDEMIC IN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH AROUND THE WORLD AND WE AS THE CHURCH HAD BETTER WAKE UP NOW AND LIVE WITH A PASSION FOR THE LORD AT ALL TIMES.
THIS IS JUST ONE MORE SIGN OF THE TIMES TO SHOW US THE HOUR OF HIS RETURN FOR THE CHURCH IS IMMINENT.
It’s important to keep going to church for the right reasons:
“Not forsaking the assembly of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25
I want to thank those of you who prayed for our Holy Spirit teaching yesterday (Sunday 1-11-2015) in the church we attend as we had another individual that Nita and I prayed for that received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. That makes 7 recently that have received that Baptism of the Holy Spirit. All praise and glory to the Lord.
Nita and I have been called to an evangelistic/teaching ministry. Some of the areas that we teach on is The Precious Holy Spirit, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, His gifts and how to walk in the supernatural, how to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, Bible prophecy, the privilege and blessing of giving tithes and offerings to the Lord and most important of all leading people to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Nita and I will be excited to see where you are viewing this website from. We have already received e mails from a pastor and a missionary in Africa. Recently I talked to a man in Sweden about this website and gave him our website address. Praise the Lord. (A pastor in Kenya, Africa sent us an e mail saying that he is reading our website and wants us to come and minister to his church in Kenya, Africa).
I SENT A COPY OF THE CHRISTMAS MESSAGE TO A PERSON THAT ATTENDED THE CHURCH WE NOW ATTEND ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO, SHE SAID SHE HAD NOT BEEN GOING TO CHURCH, BUT PRAISE THE LORD FOR THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD THIS IS THAT PERSON’S TESTIMONY: WE JUST RECEIVED IT:
I AM SO HAPPY YOU KEPT MY EMAIL ON YOUR LIST. I WAS SO EXCITED TO BE SENT AN EMAIL TO YOUR WEBSITE. I MET YOU AT PASTOR JEFF'S CHURCH A FEW YEARS BACK.
I MOVED TO THE OTHER SIDE OF SOUTH MOUNTAIN AND HAVE NOT BEEN TO CHURCH IN A WHILE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WEBSITE AND MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU.
WHAT A TESTIMONY NITA AND I ARE BLESSED OVER THIS, PRAISE GOD FOR THE POWER OF HIS WORD, HE SETS PEOPLE FREE.
WE ASK THAT YOU SHARE THIS WEBSITE WITH OTHERS SO THAT THE WORD OF GOD CAN BLESS THEM ALSO.
NOTICE: If you are having problems viewing the Jesus Film click the statement in the upper right hand corner that says: “If you are having problems viewing the film clips click on this…. (It will open up 61 video clips of Jesus, his birth, ministry, death and resurrection, along with many miracles He did, it is awesome, with excellent sound and images. (We obtained permission to present this to you). I have had people contact me that said they have their grandchildren watch these videos as well as them.
This website opened at the end of April 2014. Since we have a new teaching each Monday there has been a lot of Word that has been put out over the worldwide web. (IT WILL NOT RETURN VOID).
We pray you will join us again next Monday, thank you and God bless every one of you and your families.
The Lord gave me a prophecy about October 2013 and told me that the Body of Christ would receive restoration in many areas of their lives in 2014. I have talked to others in the Body of Christ that received restoration in their lives and some of it was deliverance from satanic oppression and had been going on for years but in 2014 it was broken and they are not taking any drugs anymore to try to control it.
Nita and I were greatly blessed in 2014, the Lord saved my life twice that I know of and God did a wonderful work in our family. Money can’t buy those kinds of blessings. PRAISE THE LIVING GOD.
Then about 2 weeks ago the Lord spoke to me about this year, 2015 and the Body of Christ and said that this year would once again be a year of restoration but it would even be greater than last year. It would be like the prophet Joel said and combine the former and latter rain. Joel 2:23 Jesus said I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail. Matthew 16:18
Who are the ones that would receive these blessings, first of all the Body of Christ and then those that are willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land? Isaiah 1:19 You see you cannot ever buy blessings from the Lord but on the other hand being WILLING AND OBEDIENT to what God has called us to do OPENS THE DOORS WIDE TO RECEIVE HIS BLESSINGS.
Let’s all live for the Lord, Amen?
Let’s all look forward with a spirit of expectation to this year of 2015.
