Before someone else has to take you!
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Psalm 42:1-4
What keeps you from going to church? Is it some uppity people looking down upon you? Is it the senior citizen that gives candy to the kids? Is it all of the hypocrites? Do you feel as if it’s all a joke, some manmade fairy tale just to get into people’s pockets? Do you think it’s a systematic lie to have a group of subservient people bowing down to the pastor?
Sure there are those type of organizations out there but just because they have the title church on them doesn’t mean that’s what they are. What they are is a cult. A group that has taken just enough of the truth and twisted it into what they believe will serve their purpose. Preacher, how do I know the difference? Friend, read the Bible! Read the King James Bible! Compare what the Man of God is saying to scripture and see if what He is saying is truth. Don’t blindly follow someone just because they say they had a dream, saw a vision, or had a revelation from God. No, stick to the Book! Stick to God’s Word by Getting Up, Getting, Ready, and Going to a Bible Believing Church this morning! Don’t wait until you die for someone to haul your dead carcass there—for it will not do you any good!
