One day a few years ago, the Spirit of the Lord came upon me, and I knew I was to come before Him. He was drawing me to His seat of council. Immediately I walked towards my prayer room, but paused to grab a pen and tablet in order to record our conversation. When I sat down, I began to seek answers from the Lord about one particular church I attended years ago. This church’s leadership had one main goal and that is to grow in numbers in order to increase their personal finances and influence in the community. If a church can do this it appears successful within the church system and local community. This particular church has tried it all, and I mean everything in order to grow yet it does not grow. It had become a business to them.
Therefore, I began to ask the Lord questions and these are His exact words spoken. You judge for yourself as to whether I heard Him. Take it before God yourself and seek His wisdom in the matter.
Five questions I asked the Lord.
Q1. Why doesn’t this church grow?
A1. Because they want it to grow.
Q2. What is wrong with that?
A2. It is their vision not mine.
Q3. The early church grew and increased?
A3. As I added members.
Q4. Why then do some churches grow and others do not?
A4. It is not about growth. It is about the Kingdom. Each church has a different assignment and the motives behind the pulpit must be 100% for My things and not things, not numbers, or anything man can say, “This is a successful ministry because of a building or pews filled”. What are they doing with the people in the pews, warehousing them? Corralling them as their sheep to control while they feed themselves and starve My sheep. It is not My way and a day of judgment awaits for those evil, sluggard, selfish shepherds.
Q5. How does leadership change their mindset?
A5. Give up control to Me. Find their true place in My heart and allow My heart to reign in their lives.
If you are a reader of this blog then you know the many revelations the Lord has given me over the years about the harlot church system, which is firmly in place in the world. I know the harlot church system is a hard revelation to see and understand. I know it is not a popular message. The church system will entrench herself into the hearts of those who attend her. She offers something for each and everyone who attends, but the one thing it cannot offer is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The harlot will cleverly steer you away from a personal relationship with Jesus by inserting herself as preeminent.
Blessing of Peace to your soul and may you find the life of God ever-increasing in your daily life.

Come out of her!
Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“‘Come out of her, my people,’
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5 for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
6 Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Pour her a double portion from her own cup.
7 Give her as much torment and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;
I will never mourn.’
8 Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
Revelation 18: 4-8
