MORNINGTIME 2247
 
And Jesus went about all Galilee, TEACHING in their synagogues, AND PREACHING THE GOSPEL of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. Matthew 4:23. And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, TEACHING in their synagogues, AND PREACHING THE GOSPEL of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. Matthew 9:35. The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM. Matthew 11:5. And THIS GOSPEL of the kingdom SHALL BE PREACHED in all the world for a witness unto all nations; AND THEN SHALL THE END COME. Matthew 24:14. Did you notice in these verses that when the Gospel was Preached BIG THINGS HAPPENED? There is Power in the Gospel, there is Life in the Gospel, CHRIST IS THE GOSPEL, He is the Word, He is Life entering into broken and lost people. Only the Gospel changes lives, ONLY THE GOSPEL. Why do I emphasize this so much? Most churches have no Power and they want to find the lost people and get them "saved" in church. So you reach out to a lost person by giving them what they want without the Gospel. You give them coffee and donuts during service, you bus then to the restaurant for "fellowship", and you preach a message that doesn't offend them. That way, they'll come back for more man-made stuff. Isn't that the whole idea, give them what they want, and even  more when they do come back??? Hey, church is growing, finances are growing, and all this means the Lord is happy and Blessing, right? It must be right because most churches are doing it. With all this good teaching, I assume the congregation will be ready when a man puts a gun to their head and tells them, "Deny Christ, or I'll kill your whole family and let you watch". Will they be ready for this? Are you teaching them these things? No? Well, I hope that whatever you are teaching them, they will, Be Blessed..??
