An open letter to the Churches

It has been a little over a year since I wrote this. I still weep when I read it. To those that have an ear to hear it is an encouragement and a call to war. Hear what the spirit of the Lord is saying, not only to those who misguided the sheep, but to the sheep as well.
Sheep (Photo credit: James Good) I am writing as I have been compelled to write. The Spirit of the Lord tells me that we are of the Laodicean church, and as such we are on the last stand and have failed to hold our ground. The prophets1 have put forth the call to repent, but you have ignored that call, and instead, induced fear in my people.
You have taken away their hope.
Most will not receive this, but some will. "To the messenger of the church in Laodicea, write: The amen, the witness who is faithful and true, the source of God's creation, says: I know what you have done, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. But since you are lukewarm and not hot or cold, I'm going to s…

Jesus had a thing for hookers.

A former prostitute overwhelmed by the realization that God loved her exclaimed, “Jesus had a thing for hookers.”
Yes, yes he did. But in case you feel left out, he also had a thing for the broken, the poor, the downtrodden, outcasts, sick, demon possessed, and apparently the dead.
You can’t go around making statements like that if you cannot back them up. So here is a few:
Matthew, the tax collector
This man was hated. Rome only tolerated the tax collectors because of the money, and we can be sure that no decent Jew would have anything to do with him.
Look at what the Pharisees inferred about him.
And having seen this, the Pharisees were saying to His disciples, For what reason with the tax collectors and men stained with such vices and crimes is your teacher eating? And having heard this, He said, No need do those have who are in sound health, of a doctor, but those who are ill; (Wuest’s translation of Matthew 9:9)
Jesus sought Matthew out, not the other way around. A social outcast in Je…

Se trata de un espíritu opresivo.

Las piezas del rompecabezas se están uniendo. Es casi aterrador la rapidez con que veo las cosas en movimiento, pero yo no tengo miedo por mí, estoy preocupado por el 50% que no están esperando ansiosamente su regreso, y los que realmente no sé de él (Lee Mateo 25). También tengo amigos que están tan profundamente arraigadas en los cultos, que sólo la gracia de Dios que les saque. Aun así, a pesar de que "los cristianos" el amor a gritar, "se va al infierno", veo a un Dios amoroso, misericordioso, que sigue para tirar de ellos en el reino. Piensen en eso. Juan vio el martirio por Cristo. Estos salieron de la Gran Tribulación, creció la columna vertebral, y declaró que van a servir al Dios vivo, no Dios, y para que tengan sus cabezas cortados. No, yo no estoy preocupado por mí mismo porque tengo una esperanza sólidamente fijado en mi Jesús que venía de arrebatar a muchos de nosotros de aquí, al igual que Lot (prestar atención a ese pedazo de la historia)…
