We,as an American Church,have forgotten that God is a Judge. We preach Love, Mercy,Grace, but we leave out Judgement and that God is also a God of Wrath. He is coming to purify." Behold,I will send my Messenger, and He shall prepare the way before Me, and the Lord whom ye seek,shall suddenly come to His Temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in; Behold He shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. But who shall abide the Day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fuller's soap; and He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering of Righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in the former years. And I will come near to you in judgement; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless and that turn aside the stranger from his right and fear not Me, saith the Lord of Hosts. For I AM the Lord, I change not." This is written to the Jews, but the book of Revelation and other books talk about God's Judgement of God's people , the Church. Paul says that The Christians, born again, filled withe the Holy Ghost, Baptized in Jesus name, are now the true Jews, the chosen, the Royal Priesthood. When you read the Old Testament you find that while it always seemed that people were getting away with sin, judgement always came. God is patient, waiting for you to repent, but then then time is up. Many pastors in America no longer preach this. They don't preach about sin, the Blood of Christ, Christ's death and all it implied. They preach a soothing gospel. Really you could call them inspirational teachers, but not preachers of the Gospel. They sprinkle a little in from the Bible to make it appear that they are preachers, but they are FALSE and are leading you to Hell. They teach that you are a little god and you are on the same level as Jesus. They teach that you can name it and claim it. You know those health and wealth teachers?? Those are lies and those preachers have forgotten to "teach your children the Holy ways". They sooth your life, but do not lead you to Jesus. We are not to forget Who is the Holy One...that is Jesus! We are not to forget who is the sinner...that's you and me! ALL have sinned. All have come short of the Glory of God! All..All! Even the Pope is a sinner. God is coming to purify. Let us not forget!
