This morning I was up at 3am and turned on the TV. Wagon Train was on and I tuned in just in time to hear this old man pray. It was quite a prayer. At the end of it he received an answer to his prayer and shouted, “Hallelujah, Praise the Lord!”
The show was filmed in 1961 and I thought how far we have gone off the straight and narrow path.
That became a subject last Wednesday evening. The American church and American Christian has become too sophisticated and has strayed away from God.
Other nations around the world are responding to the Gospel and seeing the evidence of the miraculous power of God.
I have heard testimonies of healings; even those being raised from the dead. None of these stories originate in the USA.
The word of God tells us why.
Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
The TV show from 1961 praised God in the dialogue. TV today curses Him.
Indeed we have left our first love.
Rev 3:17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ — and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked —
It is time for the American church to return back to the basics of God. Back to faith. Back to believing. Back to living in the bounds of Christianity!
Abba, in Jesus name I want to live in the Spirit and not in the physical! I want to return to the simplicity of the faith. YES&AMEN
