    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Eze. 30:30-32


    Ezekiel 30:30-32
    30 "As for you, son of man, your people who talk together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, say to one another, each to his brother, 'Come, and hear what the word is that comes from the LORD.'
    31 And they come to you as people come, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear what you say but they will not do it; for with lustful talk in their mouths they act; their heart is set on their gain.
    32 "Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them.
    Looks like the modern day church, doesn't it? Once church is over, if you listen to the conversations, they might go like this, "Hey, have you seen that new movie? Let's go see it again! It was awesome with all the violence and gore!" Or you might hear, "I'm starving! Let's go to that new restaurant! I've been dying to try them!" Or you might hear, "Where you going on vacation? I'm taking a cruise! I heard that they are wonderful with lots of entertainment and things to do! I'm going to work on my tan! I heard the food is absolutely great! I can't wait to see the Bahamas and the Caribbean! I'm going to Disney World in Orlando! I'm going hiking in the Sierra Nevada's!" Or perhaps something like this, "I'm just going home and veg out! Watch the game and eat a pizza and maybe drink a little beer!"

    Yes, we American Christians have got it great! We can do anything we want and no one can say anything against it! It IS A FREE COUNTRY after all!

    There is only ONE PROBLEM with this kind of talk and most will NOT LIKE IT! You have been bought with a great price and your life no longer belongs to you. If you are dead to this world and alive to Christ, why then are you pursuing the pleasures of this world?

    Can you even HEAR THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD? Most will,say that God doesn't speak directly to man anymore because that was only in the first century church. We have the New Testament now and God doesn't need to speak to us directly today and besides, I'm born again! Nothing more needs be done! I'm going to heaven and when the rapture comes, I won't have to suffer at all cause Jesus is taking us out of here cause He doesn't want His children to suffer."

    Unfortunately for many today, the warning to the Laodicean church applies. We have become self satisfied and in need of nothing and do not realize just how naked and wretched and poor we really are regarding the things of God and His Spirit. We have become lukewarm Christians and He is about to spit us out of His mouth!

    However, try telling this to many today. They will accuse you of judging them and do not consider that we are commanded to judge their fruit and by THIS judgment, which we ARE allowed to do, it is self evident that today's church is actually dead to the things of Christ. Oh, we sing the songs, we quote the scripture and we agree with the minister as a people who love their God but once outside the church, we do what we want with nary a thought as to what God may want. Others who try to speak to this, we accuse them of being "too heavenly minded" and are no earthly good. With this, we feel justified and ignore them for being "too religious".

    Yep, sounds just like the people that Ezekiel was told to warn of the judgment that was to come. Just like them, they ignored the prophet's word and perished just as he warned them they would. Will it be any different today?

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
