KEEP WATCH WATCHMEN

ACTS 20:28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God,a]">[a] which he bought with his own blood.b]">[b] 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. 31 So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.

A Serious Word From The Lord to Pastors in The USA

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AN OPEN LETTER BEING SENT TO PASTORS IN THE USA.
Please feel free to send it to leaders as God directs.
(Note: My wife & I have served as Pastors for over25 years now.
This letter isn't being spoken out of malice, it is from the Lord).


Dear Pastor,

This letter is being sent to leaders of the church today. Throughout the world, there are many of God's servants who recognize the true condition of the Church. The Body of Christ is far from what God intends it to be. The church has become more of a religious social club, where people are just entertained, have their ears tickled & are instructed that this IS "church". The church has truly fulfilled the Apostle Paul's prophetic of: "having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (2 Tim 3:5).

Today's church teaches that to be successful, one must be rich & increased with goods. A church is considered successful based on "nickels & heads", instead of godliness. There is little if any true teaching on repentance & godliness. Rather, people are taught that their monetary GIVING is indicative to godliness. Paul warns that: "supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself" (1 Tim 6:5). Yet, the church continues to purport GAIN as GODLINESS. According to the Apostle Paul, Christians should be withdrawing from today's churches, not running to them.

The churches used to be on fire with the power of God & moved in STRONG prophetic ministry, with miracles, signs & wonders, but have pulled aside to complacency. They have chosen to appease the GIVERS in the church, because keeping the flow of money was more important than keeping the flow of God. These churches have lost the truth & have sold themselves into mediocrity, in order to finance the plans & agendas of men.

Churches are teaching its members to separate from those who have seen through the facade of the church-machine & could upset the "apple cart". They can't let that happen...the members might also see & stop feeding the church's financial machine. The church as become "Seeker-Sensitive", instead of God-Sensitive", appealing to whatever will bring people into the church to keep the "machine" running.

The churches have become religious programs, that follow man's agendas, instead of being a place that seeks God...a place that seeks for Him to come & have His way & His will be done each service. Instead, churches follow delicately laid out plans that leave God out of the picture. God is kept in a box & rarely if ever is allowed to come out & make expression. Oh, occasionally there might be a slight release from the box, so it would appear to the church that they were "spiritual". God would be allowed to speak!!!...A shallow, lifeless word called "prophecy", would be uttered, to give the people the idea that "God was there". But all along, God only cried that His people could be so dead.

The worship teams are polished, the multimedia presentations are spectacular, & the people cheered at the efforts of the church, believing they were part of a living vibrant church, but all along the way, God only cried. The leaders declare: "God is here, can you feel His presence?" and all the people can't help but agree, because their leaders told them it was so. But God's Spirit was grieved that man could be that way! Then the pastor gets up & delivers the message that he meticulously labored over all week. So sleek & controlled & complete, including jokes & humor to make the people feel good & to again, instill in them the idea that they were part of a living vibrant church. The single's groups, the ski trips to the mountains & more...anything to keep the people happy. To keep them close to the church, so they can continue to feed the church machine the church has created...and again, God stood by & cried, that His people were so far from what he intended them to be.

Outwardly, the church looked like it had everything...everything, that is, that would appeal to the flesh. But inwardly, the people were flawed, dealing with issues & problems that the church wouldn't even try to tackle. "You will be OK", the leaders reassured..."you are just going through a phase". Empty words, to put them off & they suffered in their torments, all the while, the church continued on its rigid course. Never dedicating itself to taking hold of the people's problems & nor eradicating them as Jesus would. Dealing with spiritual issues using spiritual means would be too radical, the say. Casting out demons?...we can't do that...we wouldn't want to scare people away & decrease the money to feed our machine. And God, still sat on the side watching, waiting to come in & bring life, but instead He cried.

God keeps speaking, God keeps warning, God is trying to get His church's attention, but the church continues to ignore Him. The church continues in its own programs & agendas. Alas, God looks & He sees that the leaders of His church, are REALLY only building their own kingdoms using His name, the true gospel is ignored, to propagate the religious machine that they have created. The church continues to say there is "peace & safety", when God has promised that then sudden destruction will come upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape (1 Thes. 5:3). For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God (1 Pet. 4:17). That time has now come.

The church is suppose to be an organism, not an organization. The church is suppose to be made of powerful warriors, not pew warmers. God's leaders are suppose to equip the saints to do the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:12).But the leaders are afraid to obey the Lord. They would rather reject the Spirit of God from having freedom, because they are afraid to lose control. So the anointing at best, is only a slight trickle, when God intends it to be a downpour. God's church of old, turned cities upside down, but today's church hides in buildings, like an ostrich with its head in the ground.

In the months ahead, there is going to be a great shaking take place in the church. This is a wake up call. This shaking started last October & will increase in the months ahead. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, so that what can't be shaken will remain (Heb. 12:27). There will be space to repent, before His judgment falls. That time begins NOW, with the reading of this letter. THEN God's leaders will be held accountable for what they have done. They have separated themselves from God to service an ungodly machine that neither builds true Christians, nor glorifies Him. Many will fall, many will be stricken with illness & die tragically & without remedy.

Some would say: "this message cannot be from God, because 'God is love'". But they that say such things do not really know God's nature. God IS love & He has showed that love from generation to generation, speaking, instructing, commissioning & preparing man for the end, but His people have turned away from His truth & have turned unto fables (2 Tim. 4:4). The foolish say that God won't judge His people, but God has already promised that He would. Is man so prideful that he can tell God what He can or cannot do? They forget that His promises fail not & His word will never pass away. God said there was a set time that the end would come. The world is NOW entering into that time.

God IS love & "God of love" even in during this coming time ahead. And anyone that will turn to Him, will find compassion. Anyone that will repent of their foolishness & again seek His face, He will direct them in what is yet ahead. The majority of Christians are NOT prepared for what is yet ahead. Most leaders are not ready either. That is why God is letting His leaders know now, before it is too late. God is saying to prepare. But most will not do this. Most will continue on the path they are on, because they cannot see themselves as being wrong, so like the blind leading the blind, both will fall in the ditch (Matt. 15:14). The greatest sorrow in God's heart, is the fact that these ministers used to walk close to Him, but have turned aside & taken the course of King Saul, desiring to please men rather than God.

In the months ahead, as the fabric of society begins to unravel & the false security that the church-machine has simulated begins to fail & go under, there will be multitudes & multitudes of believers who will cry out for answers. But the "church machine" will not be able to help them nor give them any true direction. Because they themselves no longer can stand in their own falsehood. The machine that has been kept running by the "blood, sweat & tears" of men & women's labors, will finally come to a halt & standstill & they will be appalled as they see the death of their true god, as their church machine fails. Fear will grip them & will spread to all others in their camp, because Babylon, the great has fallen. Babylon, that great religious structure that deceived man & hid man from God is no more.

The Christian masses will cry in despair, because of the things happening on the earth & they will not know what to do or which way to go. The great falling away will have come. With no rapture to snatch them away...with no catching up to deliver them from their failed faith, the time of the end will have come to them & they will not escape. Jesus said: "Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken" (Luke 21:26). The CHURCH is the "powers of heaven"...the "men's hearts" spoken of here is that heart of FAITH, not the blood pumping beating heart.

Their only hope is to turn back to HIM in repentance...repentance from dead works & serving another god (this false church-machine)...repentance from denying the very one who bought them, but THAT will require true humility, something that the leaders have renounced & rejected, so they could follow the course of their church machine: "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction" (2 Pet. 2:1).

It is time for the church to wake up...snap out of it & return unto the Lord, while they still can. The church has become like a frog in a pot of water on top of a stove. They have been lulled to sleep by the warmth of their own devices & know not that death does await them. If you are reading this message, PLEASE do not say that it doesn't pertain to you. PLEASE do not be so prideful & say this just isn't true. PLEASE look deep into your heart. The Lord stands next to you now & knows your true thoughts, He knows your true heart & nothing can hidden from Him.

"For the word of God is ALIVE, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do" (Heb 4:12-13).

God says to repent while you still can. Yes, God IS LOVE...it is His LOVE that brought THIS message to you, because He does NOT want to lose you to what is about to happen. What you have held onto & nurtured over the years is about to fall. ONLY what is of Him will remain standing. This is NO joke. You can scoff & reject it, but you will also be held accountable for those actions. The Lord's watchmen are all over the world. He has called us out of what is not of Him & has told us to warn leaders, before it is too late. His cry has come to you. Will you hear Him or will you deny Him again?

"I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may 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" (Rev. 3:15-20).

Please Note TOO :
The Lord wants These Scriptures written here as confirmation:

1Pe 4:17For the time [has come] for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if [it begins] with us first, what will [be] the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Jer 10:21For the shepherds have become dull-hearted, And have not sought the LORD; Therefore they shall not prosper, And all their flocks shall be scattered.
Jer 23:1"Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!" says the LORD.
Jer 23:2Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: "You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings," says the LORD.
Jer 25:34"Wail, shepherds, and cry! Roll about [in the ashes], You leaders of the flock! For the days of your slaughter and your dispersions are fulfilled; You shall fall like a precious vessel.
Jer 25:35And the shepherds will have no way to flee, Nor the leaders of the flock to escape.
Jer 25:36A voice of the cry of the shepherds, And a wailing of the leaders to the flock [will be heard]. For the LORD has plundered their pasture,
Jer 50:6"My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; They have turned them away [on] the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; They have forgotten their resting place.
Eze 34:2"Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy and say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD to the shepherds: "Woe to the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
Eze 34:7'Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD:
Eze 34:8"[As] I live," says the Lord GOD, "surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food for every beast of the field, because [there was] no shepherd, nor did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock"--
Eze 34:9therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the LORD!
Eze 34:10Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I [am] against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.

Jam 3:1My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.

Hbr 10:26For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
Hbr 10:27but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Hbr 10:28Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Hbr 10:29Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
Hbr 10:30For we know Him who said, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,"[fn5] says the Lord.[fn6] And again, "The LORD will judge His people."[fn7]
Hbr 10:31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God,

  1. Amen on this . . . the "church" of today is not about promotion godly living but entertaining those that come so they will continue to come and put their money in the pot . . . They are not teaching about repentence or hell, just God is love! Live your best life now! So many being mislead, they have become the wide path that leads to destruction!
