Is anyone else afraid of what has happened to the church? Have we become so blinded by all the bells and whistles that we don’t see what’s going on right before our eyes? I fear that the enemy has struck us hard and soiled even some of the most seemingly righteous people. There’s something in my spirit that’s alerting me to be cautious. The enemy has set a narrative that we must follow so he can complete his dirty deeds. Why? I think it’s to keep the people spiritually dead, so they can’t see the truth. Consider that it may be necessary for you to relearn the truth about who God is. It began with someone else telling you what God meant by specific passages in scripture. Now is the time for you to stand on your own two feet, and start listening to the Holy Spirit for yourself, and stop relying on someone else explaining it to you and possibly leading you in the wrong direction. It’s time for you to become a Berean.
Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. Acts 17:11
