The Church is Busy with its Programs While Christ is Outside of it


Much of what is missing in the organized Church today is the work, or move, of the Holy Spirit.

We totally underestimate the Spirit of God and what He can do if we let Him.

We have over- organized and created programs for this and that instead of seeking God and letting Him lead by His Spirit.

God has a will, an opinion, a way but we don’t even recognize that fact anymore.

I often feel like the organized church is a slave mill: keeping people over- busy, working them in to the ground, churning out program after program- and what for? “There is a way that seems right to man but the end of it is death”.

God Himself has a way. It is by His Spirit. It is the centrality of Christ. The Spirit of God when He is working will always point to and exalt Jesus Christ. If Christ is not center, if He’s not there, then it is a work of the flesh. Get rid of it! Stop wasting everyone’s time, repent and seek God’s face.

We often use this scripture “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” (Rev 3:20) as an evangelistic tool. But it’s not. Jesus said this to the CHURCH in Laodicea. He was outside the church. Pushed outside His own church because He wasn’t needed anymore, “we have a program”!!

Lord have mercy, wake up your church.

  1. Speak Holy Spirit!!! Thank you Belinda for sharing, Very Powerful Truth. 🙏
    You and your family are in my prayers, Peace and Blessings to you. ♥️

  2. I love you lady! Keep the truth about the Gospel alive on your platform and please share it with your community.

  3. Thanks. Blessings to you.

  4. As you know, this is my main theme for writing. “Organize” replaces “Obey”. Busy-ness does not equal faithfulness. etc. I continue to support your preaching in prayer.

  5. You will find that a Church full of Jesus is full of the Holy Spirit. And a Church full of the Holy Spirit is a Church where the people are in complete unity.

I would love to hear your thoughts...
