Faith No Longer Needed in American Church: The Sight-Walkers

FAITH: No longer enough.

FAITH: No longer enough, no longer needed.

AMERICAN CHURCHES:

CRAVING A PHYSICAL PRESENCE OF GOD

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
2 Corinthians 5:7


WALKING BY SIGHT IN AMERICA

Christians are to walk by faith, not sight.

That is a basic tenet of Christianity.  But, like so much of “the faith which was once delivered unto the saints,” [Jude 1:3] that part of Christianity has been jettisoned in favor of “moves of the Spirit” and “experiencing more of God.” Entire churches sit in thrall, waiting for experiences they can see, hear and otherwise experience through their senses.

An actual, physical  “touch of God” is all the rage.

But what did Jesus say about those who seek to enter the presence of God without going through His Son?

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
John 14:6

“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.”
John 10:7, 1

John also records Jesus having something to say about walking by sight and experiencing him by the senses instead of by faith.

“Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.”
John 20:19-20

“But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.  And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”
John 20:24-28

“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”
John 20:29

Dangerous false spirits have entered many Christian churches today.  Some come in via deception; others are invited in.


 “Walking by sight has been exalted in some churches to the point it has become a badge of honor.  The experiences of walking by sight are offered as “proof” that one is right with God.”


The hunger of many American Christians for a SHOWTIME! experience is also a culprit.  The Word of God is no longer sufficient.  Now, it’s all about experiences, emotions and (tickled) ears.  Mysticism, super-spirituality through secret knowledge and new revelation, as well as mixing lighting, repetitive chants and musical choruses to alter perceptions are all being used as tickets to paradise.

“Only through the blood of Jesus Christ do persons become fit hosts for His presence. The error of the new spirituality is that it assumes that God’s presence can be ginned-up via the exercise of human passion.”
The Present of His Presence

Even when these false spirits turn disturbing and drop their pretense of being the Holy Spirit, the pulpit and the pews continue to clamor for “MORE!” of this presence.

“For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
Deuteronomy 32:28

Churches spend hours attempting to “usher in His presence.”  Not only is this manipulative, it is unnecessary.

whither shall I flee from thy presence?”
Psalm 139:7

Jesus also gave His assurances on the matter.

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:20

The linked article is succinct.

Can we experience God’s presence by means of mystic contemplation, our initiative, our spiritual disciplines, or the self-conditioning of our soul to commune with His? Or do we enter God’s presence via the Cross, God’s initiative, His grace, as the Holy Spirit links us to Him? For true believers, the answer is obvious.
The Present of His Presence

So why all of the emphasis on “entering in to His Presence”?  Why has the focus in so many churches changed to an EXPERIENCE of Jesus via the Holy Spirit?

Perhaps it has to do with where one’s faith lies.

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
2 Corinthians 5:7

Those walking by sight need reassurances of God’s presence.  Scripture is not enough: a display of power is needed.  The “sight-walkers” need to be reassured; to see power, miracles and signs and wonders.  The other spirits inhabiting American churches will happily oblige.

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
Romans 8:24-25

Who needs faith when physical manifestations are available?  Who needs faith when spiritual thrills, chills and spills are paraded in front of the faithless every week? Who needs faith when experiences allow church-goers to walk by sight?

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6

Faith is no longer enough.  In fact, faith is no longer needed.

Walking by sight has been exalted in some churches to the point it has become a badge of honor.  The experiences of walking by sight are offered as “proof” that one is right with God. Actually, the experiences of walking by sight are offered as “proof” that one is exalted by God.

Alas! The sight-walkers will be the basis of the whore of Babylon Church that Satan is even now raising up.

2014 America is very similar to Israel before the birth of Jesus.

“Israel hungered after some sense of the divine presence because in judgment God had withdrawn it from them. So with that absence, Judea became a wasteland of spiritual seekers after a word from God. Occult activity—paranormal, psychological and mystical—thrives when the Word of God is ignored or lost and as a consequence, the sense of God’s presence dies.”

When one depends on passion, feelings, experiences, emotions and other outward signs to indicate a presence, one gets nervous when such sensational stimuli are absent.  So now America hungers after a sign of God’s presence.  Seeing none, the Bible says they will accept any sign from any source.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;”
Revelation 13:11-14
