The Evangelical Children of Today….


 Rick Frueh posted a list which brought me to tears…

The evangelical children of today will grow up and:

  • Never discuss or understand what true revival is.
  • Never see people weeping uncontrollably in a church service.
  • Never experience the presence of God in an unusual way.
  • Never see their parents on their face in prayer.
  • Never know what appropriate dress is.
  • Never experience an elongated church service directed by the Spirit.
  • Never watch as their pastor preaches on the street.
  • Never be part of a week long fast.
  • Never see the church hold an all night prayer meeting.

  1. Jesus Christ is th same yesterday today and forever and every generation of His will know Him and experience Him and no generation wil be forgotten or abandoned…

    much of whats passed as Christ has been outward, fleshly and come outta religion and organized churches, and not been actual fruit of th Spirit…so if we lose it and it never returns, we have lost nothing and we can thank th Lord Himself fa prunin it off so it dont continue to rob His children of living water and bread of life by tryna take what is His and leech offa it…

    only th indwelling Spirit in th new creation is able to make real and permanent change by His dilligent precise work IN us…stuff like coarse language or th lack of it, alcohol or th lack of it–even th world is able to create a facade of good behavior, but its still a facade…and when th Lord delivers, theres no goin back, no desire to…just ask anyone who He delivered…

    its both strange and sad to me that mainstream christianity has fa so long been accepted as a work of th Lord, when He Himself declared that His Spirit will lead us into all truth and th gates of hell wont prevail against what He is building…

    why should we mourn over stuff thats dead and dyin…and anythin thats been overcome by th gates of hell –well–its not Christ and not somethin He built…so why mourn we should actually rejoice…

    how sad if we look fa behaviors instead of fruit…a good tree, which is th branch that th Lord grafted bears good fruit…not of itself, but by its root…th branch has th privilege of bearing fruit it didnt plant or as He say, we reap what we havent sown…we reap what HE has sown…as th battle is th Lord’s and He give us th victory…we are conquerors who never fought, He fought and won…fruit comes from th root, not from th branch, tho it adorns th branch to be seen by all…if th root is Christ it wont be overcome; if its not Christ, thankfully it will pass into oblivion…

    only what th Lord planted will remain….Jesus Christ IS th last man standin…

  2. Very well said, DesertVoice. Psalm 127:1 ….except the Lord build the house, they that labor, labor in vain……
    The false church is growing leaps and bounds producing the same works of the flesh in the name of a different Jesus.

  3. Desert Voice… My Bro., my sister, whoever you are… You brought tears to my eyes. Jesus said “… My sheep hear my voice”. As I read your words, I heard HIS voice. The TRUTH is sweeter than honey.

  4. DesertVoice,

    you sound like Moses and the children singing the song of God God gave Moses to give the children of Israel to sing. Consider verse 10, too:

    Deu 32:4 “The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he.
    Deu 32:5 They have dealt corruptly with him; they are no longer his children because they are blemished; they are a crooked and twisted generation.
    Deu 32:6 Do you thus repay the LORD, you foolish and senseless people? Is not he your father, who created you, who made you and established you?
    Deu 32:7 Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.
    Deu 32:8 When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he divided mankind, he fixed the borders of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God.
    Deu 32:9 But the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted heritage.
    Deu 32:10 “He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
    Deu 32:11 Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions,
    Deu 32:12 the LORD alone guided him, no foreign god was with him.

    Also I am reminded of a couple ideas from Scripture after reading what you wrote, there; one from Ecclesiastes and the other from Isaiah as your points there seem to hit me right between the eyes!

    Ecc_2:12 So I turned to consider wisdom and madness and folly. For what can the man do who comes after the king? Only what has already been done.

    Ecc_3:15 That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away.

    Ecc_6:10 Whatever has come to be has already been named, and it is known what man is, and that he is not able to dispute with one stronger than he.

    Isa 1:9 If the LORD of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have been like Sodom, and become like Gomorrah.
    Isa 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomorrah!
    Isa 1:11 “What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the LORD; I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed beasts; I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats.
    Isa 1:12 “When you come to appear before me, who has required of you this trampling of my courts?
    Isa 1:13 Bring no more vain offerings; incense is an abomination to me. New moon and Sabbath and the calling of convocations– I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly.
    Isa 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates; they have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.
    Isa 1:15 When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not listen; your hands are full of blood.
    Isa 1:16 Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil,
    Isa 1:17 learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.
