American Laodicea: The Spiritual Wasteland that is the American Churches

LAODICEA: The ruins of apostasy warned.
LAODICEA: The ruins of apostasy warned.

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”
Revelation 3:14-16

SUPREME COURT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE DECISION:

HOMOSEXUALITY IS ONE OF THE ONLY SINS AMERICANS CAN STILL RECOGNIZE

The spectacle of Americans–especially those who regularly warm the seats in apostate American churches–wailing and wring their hands over the recent Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage was filled with irony

That is because homosexuality is one of the last behaviors still recognized as sin by the apostate churches, which are full of idolatry, witchcraft, paganism, false gods, false spirits, other gospels and another Jesus.

The description Jesus gave to the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3 is revealing. It’s almost like He was talking directly to the American churches.

“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”
Revelation 3:17

It’s the part about the church-goers not knowing they are “wretched and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” that rings true in 2015 America.

Visit the churches–and this writer visits several different ones almost every week–and one finds many, many things. But one does not find Christianity.

Apostate church-goers will moan over homosexuality and atheists (the two favorite topics of the apostasy), but they will not offer the gospel or Jesus–instead offering on THEIR OWN VERSIONS.

God’s Word pronounces them doubly cursed.

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Galatians 1:8-9

Altar calls, sinners’ prayers, ABC’s of salvation: but no gospel.

When asked if they believe we are living in the end times, it is almost universal that church-goers will respond “Yes!” When asked if they believe God Word, they will likewise respond in the affirmative.

But when it is pointed out what God’s Word has to say about the end times churches, they will almost to a person insist that their church is “different.”

They are indeed special people.

Yesterday’s Supreme Court decision will give the churches something to talk about for a few weeks. It will also give the antichrist hucksters masquerading as evangelists, along with the so-called discernment ministries and TV preachers, something about which to preach.

It will also give the wolves in the pulpits something about which to posture. They will TALK about “going to jail” and other nonsense–but will DO nothing about the abominations which are taking place in their own churches. And they will continue to offer their own cursed “alternatives” to the gospel of salvation.

Homosexuality is like abortion: it’s talked about endlessly and postured about, but when it comes right down to it, the only thing that will happen is TONS of money will be raised by the deceitful workers.

The church-goers at Laodicea offended Jesus so much he said he would vomit them out of His mouth.

It’s helpful to keep in mind the sins of the American churches are easily more than those listed for Laodicea.

THE GOOD NEWS?

The good news for those in the apostate churches?

Jesus promised that if ANY in the church of Laodicea left their church ways behind and followed HIM instead, He would make them overcomers.

“I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
Revelation 3:18-22

Is Your Calling and Election Sure?

Sins of Sodom and the Sins of America

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
