Lord Help!!! Our Churches Run the Highest Cabal in the World!

If you hear me mention half the name of your church as you read on, then you can complete the rest for me, otherwise, no church is in focus as I hit the keys on my keyboard. Just what every other person has noticed but might not want to say, write or query. And that might be because of lack of opportunity to express such views or the criticism it might bring.

The church as I had always known is basically culled from a Greek word which means called out or called out ones. In essence, it has no physical attribution to things such as buildings. But for the smooth gathering of the called out people for "Fellowship", "Braking of Bread" and "Prayers", there has been need for physical place of gathering.

In a sense, you are not been called out from where you were to start loafing about, no. There is a place that the most High has put his name and there, you must gather to receive commands on your lines of action.

After Christ left earth, the disciples decided to build themselves another country, a separated place where they will just stay and hide from what is going on in the world. The people that have lands, quickly sold the lands, those that have occultist materials burnt them. They brought all they have to the place of gathering and 'laid' what they've brought before the Apostles feet. From here, foods were bought and was cooked, served equally. Dedicated men were set aside for this mission of whom Stephen was among.

Later, they were found wanting. They have left preaching and were serving tables. Persecution came, they were dispersed. Every man preached where he found himself. 
First lesson, they were not meant to acquire any form of colony for themselves to live in since they are not to just stay at a particular place.

At the mount of transfiguration, Jesus took three men with him and these were from the inner circle. After the incident that shook them, Peter made a statement, "Master, it is good for us to be here" (In his heart, he has alienated the other nine. Maybe to him, they weren't holy enough since Jesus didn't bother bringing them to witness his transfiguration), "... Let us make three tabernacles here, (He was already trying to settle at the mount without the others) one for you, one for Moses and the other for Elijah". The Master never consented since that wasn’t in the plans.

We are having a real issue in our churches today. Firstly, it is a matter of doctrine. Everyone thinks he is the right man, speaking directly the mind of God. He might decide to focus on whatsoever theme he pleases. Be it Prosperity, Righteousness, Holiness, Heaven, love or whatever he believes is his 'calling'. But maybe that's not the issue here. What's the issue then?

Our churches today have alienated themselves from the world in every sense. They have gone back to 'before the persecution'. 
They build cathedrals; people sell their land or give it up to 'churches', sell their cars and bring in the money to the church.
They are 'inside the churches now' (staying), braking bread daily, they are having internal fellowships daily, they are having prayers daily. Is that not what happened before the persecution came and they were all scattered?

In our beloved country, time is coming and every denomination is going to be a country of its own. How do I mean?
They have their own 'named cathedrals', they have their own schools and hospitals, they have their own transport systems, their markets and economics systems are streamlined to suit their members and none members find them uncomfortable, they won't have any option than to back off. Are Christians of the twenty first century not calling for another round of persecution?

His Rod and His Staff!

All hail Alphasoars . . .

Happy New Year everyone!! I am so excited we finally made it into the New Year. 2017 was a graciously year too but it can't be brighter than a future that we have assurance from God that it will be greater.
Welcome once again to 2018. We are praying for long life, health and wealth with all the goodies of life that we couldn't get last year. All the plans that never came through; all the aspirations that never had a 100% fulfillment; all unborn pregnant ideas and inspiration that never manifested, this is the year to bring all to pass.

From the Bible in Psalms 23, the psalmist was praying and assuring himself of a gracious journey ahead, no matter what happens, he will always be resting under the able care of the strongest and mightiest of shepherds - The Lord of Host.
In assuring himself, there is something he made mention of in verse 4. He mentions two important things which are Rod and Staff.
He realized that as he moves on in the line of grace and God'swill, he will need to be guided and corrected.
