I believed not the words: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Gods Natural progression to true belief, (faith).

~  Curiosity:

The queen of Sheba heard of Solomons fame, because he was blessed of the Lord,  and she came to see for herself, if it be true.
(1 Kings: 10:1)

She heard and came to see.  So many of us today, hear of the great things of the Lord, but never, ever, venture close enough to see.

There is revival down the road.   A church in town is growing like mad.

The Outpouring of the Spirit of God, has multitudes gathering, seeking a touch from the Lord.

Our answer: 

I wish revival would happen at our church, why isn’t the Lord adding to our church?    How come, Lord?

We don’t go to see… It isn’t happening in a UMC, or Baptist Church, it’s happening in that non-denominational church.  

I’ll tell you what it is.

It’s all show,  they cannot be preaching the true gospel, (like we are), after all we have the truth. 

It’s just the excitment of the music, skits, signs and wonders… people just want to be entertained.

Really, have you gone to see why? 

No, of coarse not, those people are strange, they believe the Word of God was written for today.

Do we go and question their theology to see if it’s true? 

No, of coarse not, those people aren’t of our denomination.  How could their doctrine be truth?

Pastors afraid of losing their flock, they talk down the growing churches… 

SHAME ON YOU!

Pastor, have someone preach for you Sunday, go visit this growing church, hear the Word preached, study the Word see if it be true.

Get to know who they are   Question them.  Study to show thyself approved.  Are they preaching the TRUE GOSPEL?

Learn from them and teach it to your flock. Ask the Lord for His direction, walk in it.  Then you will see growth.

~ Curiosity Satisfied:

1 Kings: 10. 7.
Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.”

Pastor, the Lord is working through those, who allow Him to work through them.

Are you a WHOSOEVER,  do you allow Him to lead, direct and guide His people to a closer walk with Him?

Is that you?

There is a reason the Lord is working elsewhere and not in your church. 

YOU WON’T LET THE LORD LEAD.

1 Kings: 10. 24.
And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.”

Multitudes flock to the Lords presence.  To hear and learn of His Wisdom, not ours.  It only comes to us as we walk in obedience to Him.

I know you are preaching the truth you know.  If your church is not growing, maybe you need to learn more truth.

Lord, help us to let your presence flow through us.   Amen

  1. Thought-provoking and often true. However, many times those who preach to people who have itching ears can certainly draw an audience. I find it interesting that there is no mention regarding size of church, positive or negative, from Jesus to the seven churches referenced in the Revelation. He seems to be concerned with their love for him, for others, their good deeds, their staying away from sinful influences, their service, perseverance, and sacrifice. None of those things have very much to do with the size of a church. He was pretty hard on one of them for being dead – I would think you could assume they did not do much growing. But on the other hand, dead people generally like to hide in the crowd, so maybe that doesn’t mean much either. I think it is more pertinent to judge one’s church by these seven churches than to judge on what is happening in the church down the road. Throwing around my thoughts.
