Finding His Calling In The Marketplace

Then the Lord said to Moses,

“Look, I have specifically chosen Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts.

He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze. He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft!

Exodus 31:1-5 (NLT)

  1. The holy tabernacle, ark & mercy seat = present day marketplace? Interesting, i didnt know that.

    The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle, And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense, And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot, And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office, And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do. Exo31

  2. Hi joe

    I will explain this as much as I can for now.

    So if you think there are some points lacking or contrary to the scripture, please feel free to insert =)

    The modern day holy tabernacle, ark & mercy seat is represented by the Church of Jesus Christ.

    Why do I say that?

    In John chap 2:18-20

    18Then the Jews demanded of him, “What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”

    19Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”

    20The Jews replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?”

    Obviously from the passage above, Jesus was implying that this temple was HE.

    Likewise the temple/church even in our present day context does not refer to a BUILDING.

    Now (since His resurrection) the Church of Jesus Christ is not built with woods and stones, but with lives of people- Christ followers with Jesus as the capstone/foundation.

    In 1 Peter 2:4-8

    4As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— 5you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6For in Scripture it says:
    “See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    a chosen and precious cornerstone,
    and the one who trusts in him
    will never be put to shame.” 7Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
    “The stone the builders rejected
    has become the capstone, “8and,
    “A stone that causes men to stumble
    and a rock that makes them fall.”They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.

    With this paradigm shift, it is clear that the Church is without walls, the power of God and His presence should not be confined within the building.

    WHY? Cos WE ARE THE CHURCH!

    Even Jesus didn’t just stay in the synagogoes to wait for ppl to preach to. He was going from town to town, villages to villages exhibiting the power of God thru healing and other miracles.

    That was why the pharisees questioned His authority in teaching as He wasn’t part of the clergy, but they saw him as a carpenter.

    And to further elaborate on the passage in this entry….

    It is God who anoints us in our our specific professions/vocations or we need to seek our place in His purpose in the world we live in, so that we can “build His Church”.

    For instance, if we are accounts/CFOs or auditors, we should uphold integrity and honesty with financial governance. If we are teachers in schools, we should teach in a way that would set a good example with conduct and competence to the youths which would set them up for life. If we are doctors, we heal lives with our hearts and hands. If we are cleaners, we clean with excellence and not “eat snake”. Or if we are business owners, we should not cheat staff.

    Therefore when we go to our workplace, we carry God in and with us. He provides the anointing to carry our our specific profession/vocations in order that we “build His Church”- extending His power and presence into the marketplace/world to save souls.

  3. Well, since temple/church in our present day context does not refer to a BUILDING and we are the living temples.

    Why do we still need to spend time in a building/local church? And since the veil in the temple has been torn, why do we have to go thru a human intermediary in the building like the OldTestament priests rather than seek Him directly, the Author & Finisher of our faith?

    Eph2.21 In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

    >Even Jesus didn’t just stay in the synagogoes to wait for ppl to preach to. He was going from town to town, villages to villages exhibiting the power of God thru healing and other miracles.

    True, why dont we follow JESUS & do that, rather than stay in the building & merely invite pp to come to the building. And we go from workplace to another workplace, job to job, exhibiting the same power/greed for human achievement in more pay increase & prestige, just like our pagan colleagues.

    It doesnt make sense. Maybe you can further elaborate?

    “We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.” 1John2

  4. In 1 Peter 2:9-10

    9But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

    We are a PEOPLE, PRIESTHOOD and NATION. We are supppose to be one.

    As a CHURCH, there needs to be communion in order that we can be a community of believers to form one BODY.

    In John 17:20-23…

    “My (Jesus) prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: 23I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

    As ONE that the world will know we are His.

    Our weekly worship service, provides that platform for corporate identity and bonding in order we can share lives as a community thru feasting on His word and fellowship.

    God knows we cannot a lone ranger, as no man is an island. Unity is required to build His Church. We need the support from one another.

    Eph2.21 In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

    Even Jesus surrounded Himself with His disciples.

    I think we can also use day-to-day examples like our corporate organisation in how we also need to work as a team and not just “run your own show” or else there would be disharmony.

    All of us play a part in His big plan. We need to live and serve together in order to achieve His results and not ours.

    So if we do His work in “building His Church”, it has to be in His way- The Spirit of God always works in FULL POWER through divine authority and unity.

    That kind of result (His) would be credited to His full glory!

    In simpler terms, God’s work has to be carried out “ethically and professional” within His “framework”- spirit and truth =)

  5. Building Churches – The Bible never gives Christians instructions to build a physical church. The Bible never instructs Christians to hire or employ a pastor to take tithe money from God to build a personal fortune to increase the assets of the pastor’s estate, who legally owns the church, land, buildings and ministry. Paul was a tentmaker and he never begged others to pay his bills to support him or family members and yet he performed a great evangelism for the Lord. The Apostles never gave instructions to enrich themselves by taking money from God’s people via collections. Any collection was used for the good of all, not just the pastor and the pastor’s family. Today, the churches are run contrary to the Bible’s examples. They make their own rules and twist things around to violate the essence of the Bible. The fact a physical church is built, it is built on sand not rock and those who build it and support it will discover all too late that God never intended His people to be funneling money into church buildings and properties or investments to make money. The early church met in homes, not in controlled environments owned and operated by pastors or denominations. Can you believe it?

    Hirelings – Jesus warned us that one day you will see teachers (pastors) who are paid to be teachers (pastors) and that they will not care for you. In fact, they will appear as sheep, but will be wolves to devour you. Your pastor (or priest) is a hireling? Who is paying their bills? You? Jesus warned you not to support these hirelings as they will deceive you.
    Jesus Is Love – God is love, but He is also a just God. Pastors teach that God is so lovely and sweet that sins are simply forgiven to all and salvation is given to all without having to obey God’s commands. This apostate teaching has become so prolific you can be a member of the church and still not have repented of sin. You can disobey God’s commands and still be saved. However, God does not change. If you read the Bible you will see God has great mercy upon those who call upon Him, but he has an awful wrath upon those who will not obey Him. Jesus did not teach love at all times and at all costs. He was very specific of the punishment that would be given to those who disobey God. Jesus also said that God is a hard taskmaster and will toss the unprofitable servant into hell. That is right. You can love God and yet still disobey Him and end up in hell. God requires obedience. Jesus said if you love Him you will keep His commands. Jesus does not honor those who serve God with their lips and their heart is far from Him. Jesus said you should perform good works so your Father is glorified, so therefore good works is good fruit and to save the lost is the fruit Jesus and the Father is really looking for. This is not instructed by pastors in the church today. Instead, being a loyal church member is being taught . Can you believe it?

    Telethon Fundraising – Pastors proclaim with great authority that to bear fruit for God you must donate your money to his church or his dream or his cause. The Gospel tells us a parable of servants who mismanaged money and invested it wisely and one foolishly. The foolish one ended up being tossed into hell. Pastors cry and scream and plead to convince you to send them a check each month to proclaim the Gospel worldwide, or citywide or whatever. God never told his servants to beg for money, so this tactic is unbiblical and a fraud. Sowing seed in these ministries to promote a ministry is unbiblical except in the rare case to “send” someone on a specific mission. But to send money continuously each month, year after year to promote someone else’s ministry is unscriptural. These pastors are slick con-artist wolves out to take your money and make a lavish living on a false prosperity Gospel. “Give to this ministry and God will give you a 100 times return on your investment.” “This is good soil to sow your seed.” You have heard these lies and likely have believed them (I too was deceived by them). The Bible says for you to go forth and proclaim the Gospel, not sit back and do nothing or support others that will go bear good fruit for you. The money you give to these ministries will not give you a plug dime in heaven. Can you believe it?

    Prostitution – A prostitute sells herself for a service, usually for money. A pastor that sells the Word of God to make a profit is prostituting the Word of God. Jesus said freely you have received, freely give. He never told the Apostles or the Disciples to sell the Word of God. Today pastors create fabulous books, tapes, TV shows and even movies to make a profit. They are selling the Word of God. This apostasy is a slap in the face of God. Pastors are not to sell the word of God, they are to teach, but not sell. Paul, Peter, John never sold the Gospel to make for money. A pastor should never be involved in merchandising the Word, not being in a special position of trust. Today, pastors are raking in millions of dollars in selling their version of the Gospel and Christians are buying it. This activity is unbiblical and robbery. Can you believe it?

    Serving the Church – Apostate pastors have convinced Christians to believe that serving the church is serving God. This is not true. Jesus never said to serve a church, but to serve and obey God and God alone. These apostate pastors have even the ushers, floor sweepers, cooks and repair persons and other unpaid volunteers believing they are performing blessed works in the Lord’s service. These unpaid workers will eagerly “work” and “donate their time and effort” to serve the needs of the church… perhaps for church worship services or some other special event. These same unpaid workers will not and have not ever proclaimed the Gospel to a perfect lost stranger. The Bible warns that the lost is to be saved and this is God’s will. Cleaning, cooking, fixing the church building is not serving God, it is serving the pastor and a group of people, but it is not serving God. Can you believe it?

    Worshipping God – Jesus severely scolded the Pharisees for their false worship and for teaching others to become sons of hell like themselves. Jesus went on to further warn that God is not interested in lip-service worship where hearts are far from God (far from God’s desires). He says you worship him in vain if you do worship God without producing good fruit. Today apostate churches advertise, “Come Worship With Us” but you can worship God in truth without attending these apostate churches. True worship is obeying the Lord’s commands. God does not care about church attendance. What He really wants is for you to obey His commands (He said, If you love me you will obey my commands). The number one command is to go save the lost (the Great Commission). The number one rule is not love, it is love with action attached to it! That is why Jesus said you must bear good fruit to glorify the Father. Bearing no fruit (or the wrong fruit) brings dishonor to the Father. Read the Gospel of Jesus and discover that God does not want sacrifice or praise. He want obedience. Pastors teach how to sing, praise and worship with the lips, but they do not teach true worship that glorifies God. And that is why congregations of Christians worship God, but will not go out to save the lost. Can you believe it?

    Jesus is Preached – Just because pastors praise the name of Jesus and proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior is not to be trusted as a test of true faith and proof that you will be taught the “entire” truth. Even the false shepherd proclaim and acknowledge Jesus. Jesus warned that there would be many going to hell that call Him Lord. That is why Jesus emphasizes to look for good fruit. Good Gospel preaching is not fruit in itself. It only tickles the Christian’s ears. Those who are real Christians will hear only the Lord’s voice and obey the Lord’s commands over and above the pastor’s voice and his requirements. Apostate pastor’s words will drip with honey and sound agreeable and pleasing to you. You will love to hear the pastor’s voice and little by little read Jesus Words less and less and soon you will forget about Jesus commands and you will not do them. Yes, Jesus is preached, but this is not the test. The test is the fruit and if those who hear the pastor’s voice is not being taught God’s commands and implored to obey these commands with action, then the bad fruit will be made visible.

    Believe the Pastor – You must believe the pastor whatever he preaches to you and you must not doubt him. You must do what he says for you to do because he is your spiritual father or authority. You must follow your pastor’s lead. If he says you must give your tithe money to him, then you must do it. If he asks for more money you must not say no or you will be saying no to God and God’s work. You are to believe with all of your heart, mind and soul the pastor will never lie to you. You must believe your pastor is called by God and is gifted with special powers to preach wonderful sermons. You must deny Jesus’ parables as being not spoken to you, but to others who are not saved. You must obey the commands of your pastor and not to obey the commands of Jesus of Nazareth. You may now relax and know that you are forever saved because you are member of the pastor or priest’s church. You must attend worship services each week or you are in danger of going to hell. You need a physical church for salvation and you need to obey the denominational orders and commands. You must conform with all of the church teachings, decrees and doctrines or you will be a heretic and sent to hell. You may read Jesus words but you are not ordained to obey them. All of the above sentences are lies, but is taught in churches one way or another that brings about these results. Can you believe it?

    Emotional Tears – Apostate pastors will preach and cry shedding tears and even put on a stage show performance shedding remorse and tears of those who are lost going to hell. This is often a ploy to make the pastor appear genuine. The Bible does not give any inkling that the Apostles gave fancy sermons and openly shed tears to demonstrate their worthiness and concern for humanity. Beware of emotional please and demonstrations from pastors or other invited speakers. Being born again is an emotional experience as the entire body, mind and soul is changed, but being “worked up” by a stage play performance is not. These performances take place not in public, but behind the closed door environment inside the church (or a television stage). You won’t see these crying pastors saving the lost on the city streets or in other public places. That is what Jesus and His Apostles did, go forth in public, but the pastor will not do so. Can you believe it?

    False Conversions – Pastors conduct alter calls to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, then they say a prayer for or with the lost and instantly they are saved. In reality they are not saved at all, but are now just apostate church members in an apostate church. There is one crucial element that is missing and it is the person to be saved must be convicted of sin and led toward repentance. Repentance was the first proclamation made by John the Baptist and Jesus Christ, too! Pastors simply by-pass repentance and this can only grow a dead church that bears dead branches. God says He clips the dead branches that bear no good fruit away and are tossed into a furnace. The entire church could be cut off, yet it still operates as a church saving the lost with alter calls. False conversions produce lazy and unprofitable servants. Can you believe it?

    No Hell Fire – Apostate churches will not dare preach of hell fire. The pastor will not properly teach that Jesus warned that many who call Him Lord will be tossed into hell fire. They will not teach that a “servant” is a Christian who is supposed to be serving the Lord and that Jesus warned that the unprofitable servant will be rejected and send to hell. Pastors ignore Jesus command to teach all that He has commanded and will now not even warn the flock that they are in grave danger of being cut off the vine for bearing no good fruit. Many of Jesus’ parables are simply ignored and not discussed in sermons. Why? It will offend the flock and they may just get up and leave the church. Imagine that! Jesus preached hell-fire sermons in great detail. Money is more important than truth to apostate pastors. Pastors are fearful to teach the truth and will compromise Jesus commands to preserve their own jobs and livelihood. Blind pastors leading a blind flock to hell. Jesus warned of it and it is happening more than you think. To prove that Christians are indeed God’s servants one need only to see what God called Moses; his servant (Read I Kings 8:56). Pastors teach by omission that Jesus’ parables using the word servant are unbelievers. Servants serve the King in Jesus parables. Can you believe it?

    Loving the Church – Speak to most pastors today and they will tell you they just love the church and are so happy to serve the church. Jesus had no such feeling for the church of His day. That Jewish church had become so corrupted and apostate Jesus had to condemn the lawyers, scribes and Pharisees running it, more than just a few times! The church could not be turned-around, it was was too corrupted. That is the condition Christian churches are in today. Jesus warned that at the end time there would be a great falling away. It is not a falling away of church attendance as many believe, it is a great falling away of believing and obeying God’s Word. So, church membership can actually increase and still fulfill the prophesy of a great falling away. The problem is the same as the Pharisees, they loved their religion more than God. Christians love the church more than they love God. Jesus said if you love Him you will keep His commands. You won’t see church members actively proclaiming the Gospel which is Jesus’ primary command. Can you believe it?

    Uncaring Congregations – The protestants believe one-billion Roman Catholics are deceived, but you won’t see the average protestant churchgoer doing anything to save these poor Roman Catholics. The protestants believe millions of Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses are deceived, but again you won’t see any urgency by the average protestant churchgoer doing anything to warn these lost souls of hell fire awaiting them. Why? They don’t care! Apostate churches are too busy trying to please themselves and trying to get things from God to be bothered with a conviction to save the lost. It is not their cup of tea. The early New Testament church had a powerful zeal to proclaim the Gospel to everyone they could reach. It was the Great Commission then and it is still the Great Commission today. But you won’t see evidence of Christians reaching out to the lost no matter where you go. Go downtown and look for Christians witnessing. Do you even see a Gospel tract anywhere? Not even one tract? Nobody is working. Even pastors don’t care and they don’t work in public and they don’t teach how to evangelize. They are all disobeying Jesus’ commands to proclaim the Gospel. They may support some missionaries with money donations, but the individual churchgoer refuses to get their hands dirty proclaiming the Gospel. That is why you don’t see Christians witnessing in public or seeing any evidence left behind by them. They think they are going to heaven by being disobedient to God’s commands. They believe Jesus’ parables regarding unprofitable servants do not apply to them. They believe in their church and their pastor more than God’s Word. Can you believe it?

    Saving Themselves – If you visit churches nationwide you will see an alarming similarity that they all copy each other of how the church worship service is operated. Apart from formalities and ritual they all are too busy saving themselves. Sermons are given to uplift and make everybody feel good. Sermons on how to get rich, get a new car and even a home with trees you did not plant. Getting the promises from God without repentance and obedience to God’s Word. Seminars, retreats, conventions and even television ministries are spewing out this same format; how to get from God without obedience.

    Prayer Warriors – Prayer is powerful and is encouraged, but Jesus was speaking to those who were His disciples; those who would be “actively working” for God to proclaim the Gospel. He was speaking to those who were bearing good fruit and saving the lost. He was not speaking to churchgoers whom all they want to do is attend church. Jesus said that prayer would grant needs, but He was speaking to those who were going to be working in God’s Kingdom to reach the lost. Pastors are teaching people that you don’t need to obey Jesus’ commands, but you can pray to God in Jesus’ name and still get things from God without bearing good fruit. They teach the tree that does not bear fruit God will water. Jesus said the tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down. Who are you going to believe, Jesus or your pastor? Jesus made a barren tree shrivel up and die. That’s how upset He gets when He sees do-nothing, lazy, unprofitable servants. It is still a visible warning that Jesus is not going to be mocked and if you do not bear much good He will discard you. He will spew lukewarm Christians out of His mouth. Jesus promises that. Can you believe it?

    Faith Action – Many Christians simply pray too much and become burned out. They pray and pray and pray and still do nothing to save the lost. Jesus did not say to pray for the lost. He said to go forth and tell the lost the Good News of the Gospel. Jesus said if you put the Kingdom of God first He will then supply all your needs. God’s Kingdom is not interested in growing church membership or making a bigger church building. God’s Kingdom is 100% interested in saving the lost. That is God’s agenda. The miracles and answers to your prayers will come when you put God’s Kingdom first. In fact, you will discover you will not need to pray so often anymore as God meets all your needs before you even ask. As you go forth to do God’s will, to proclaim the Gospel to the lost, you will then see miracles and your prayer requests answered. Now you are applying action with faith along with service to God’s purposes. When you take action to fulfill the Great Commission prayers get answered. Those who bear no fruit are trees to be chopped down and burned. Many unprofitable and lazy religious Christians have already been chopped down and awaiting the furnace of fire. They refuse to obey Jesus’ command to save the lost. Can you believe it?

    Exercising Christians – You can see dozens of elderly Christians roaming about the streets and shopping malls daily. You see them in casinos, golf resorts, lush hotels, National parks, etc., simply enjoying themselves, caring only for those they know and love. The doctor tells them to exercise and they obey the doctor with great faith and they exercise by walking. These are dedicated churchgoers and religious people who live by a strange code. They call themselves Christians and they believe they are going to heaven. They were told by God’s word to redeem the time to save the lost, but they refuse to obey. During these daily walks they could be leaving a long trail of Gospel tracts and even become motivated to take longer walks and travel to other towns and cities to distribute God’s Word. They won’t do it. They just walk around aimlessly with no purpose. Many believe God has abandoned them. Many are right! God will never abandon a true Christian who is born again and on fire for God. But He will discard a tree that does not bear much good fruit. He will spew out lukewarm believers. He will punish the lazy unprofitable servant in hell. These parables were all warnings to Christians. Apostate pastors teach these warnings to do not apply to Christians. By disputing Jesus parables they cunningly accuse Jesus of lying. Can you believe it?

    Obey the Church – Jesus said to obey Him. Jesus said to obey God. Jesus said to obey His commands. Pastors teach to obey the church (many own the church creating a conflict of interest). Pastors say you don’t need to obey God’s commands. They do this by “refusing to teach” the commands so nobody learns them. False shepherds are abounding everywhere in the physical churches leading millions of people astray. Other Christians know it and they too choose to remain silent. They are afraid of the pastors and the church system. They fear ridicule. Jesus spoke the truth and did not compromise to appease church rulers. Pastors are busy delivering slick sermons to ensnare the gullible, inch-by-inch towards hell. They want church attendance and church growth at any cost. It is a matter of survival or the pastor will be reassigned (if he is a hireling) or put out of business and will have to get a day job. So, you are compelled to attend church services and if you do not arrive you let down the entire flock. A flock that bears no good fruit is better to leave than to stay and perish with them. These apostate pastors will hide the hell-fire parables or any parable that reveals punishment. Read the Gospel for yourself and stop believing your pastor and denominational doctrines. You can follow the church and go to hell, but those who follow Jesus shall be saved. Your pastor and your church can not save you. Can you believe it?

    Mat7.21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    “We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.” 1John2

  6. Hey… I sincerely feel with you on this bro… I guess we can only let God be God in this instance.

    What we can have “control” over, we do what we can to make a difference in and for Christ. What we cannot, for example other churches veering off from His way, we can only pray and commit them to God.

    Cos we still have to fight the good fight ahead of us in order to finish our own race.

    Read John 21:20-22

    20Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) 21When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”

    22Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”

    You feel me? =)

    But in addition to what I have shared so far, I have also observed how our anointed vocation can also have practical contributions to His Church on top of spiritual.

    For instance, I have brothers and sisters who are in the media industry serving in the multi-media ministry in my church. I know a few who are soccer players and they use their passion and network to organise a church soccer league ministry where it becomes a great platform to engage as a community and be friends with others who join us for a game or two..

    They use their skills that the attained from the marketplace to invest back into His Church.

  7. In addition,I have also observed how many “brethen” & “sisters” who served actively in various ministries & take the opportunity to sell insurance/MLM/and other services in the “church building”. Invest back into His Church or into their personal coffers? Now what did JESUS say?

    Mat21.12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

  8. I think this is what we could do if what you observed was happening.

    Read Matthew 18:14-16

    If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. 16But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’

  9. Hey bro, it’s time for lunch. btw these amazing biblical facts are hard to ignore. Have a blessed lunch!


    2000 06 16.1 Gibson Prophecy

    Right now and in the days to come look and stand steadfast for Jesus. Beware of false teachers, the false prophets, the false apostles, and yes, even the false christs that shall come.

    For many shall come and say they are Me, saith the Lord, when they are not. Many shall come as false prophets speaking enticing words, speaking enticing words,speaking enticing words.

    But beware, for I am separating the sheep from the goats in the church. I am separating the sheep from the goats in the church. I am separating the sheep from the goats in the church. For in the church there is so many that are false. There are entire churches that will not even accept the Word of God. And yet they call themselves by My Name!

    And I am going through the churches. But those that don’t accept Me, and those that claim to accept Me, and those that claim some of the Word of God, and those that claim all the Word of God; and I am separating the sheep from the goats, those that serve Me from those who claim to serve Me.

    And in this hour and in this time there’ll come a deep separation. It is not to destroy the church! I am doing this to separate those that are false from those that are true.

    Remember, those that are false have deceived the church for far too long. They have spoken all the right words, but the spirit is not of Me!

    So don’t be shocked at what you will see. But realize the times and the seasons of which you are. The church and the people must be purified. The church cannot stand in what is to come if they are going to be filled with the filth of this world!

    For when the persecution comes they will fall if they stand with the filth of this world.For I cannot stand by and support and empower a church that is filled with filth.

    I am purging My church. And I will bring out from the organized religions of this world the people that stand in power and strength for Jesus__for Me, saith the Lord.

    And when I do everyone will take note. This will be noticed by the world! They will look around and say, “what is going on!” It will shake up the church! And it will shake up the world!

    Those that come out and stand for Me from the organized religions of this earth are going to come out in embattered shape, in poor shape, but I have prepared My people__prophets, apostles, and pastors, and teachers, and yes, even evangelists__I have prepared them to build these people up, to strengthen them.

    And when I have finished with them, there’s going to be a church without spot and without wrinkle. And I will guarantee the power of My Spirit will flow through them like it has never flowed before.

    And as it flows through them you will begin to see this is the church of the end times! This is the church that satan can’t stop! Then comes the great end times.

    So prepare yourself and be ready. Stand in fasting and praying and in the word of God for what is to come. For it is the great end times. Like nothing has ever come before,this will come. I have absolute control of it. Stand with Me no matter what happens and you will stand with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
