    Praise The Lord Jesus Chirst.the way churches are today I am wondering if the bishops could not take up money would they even Preach today its like the word of Jesus is being Sold for Money and It not really about souls or Jesus .No one cares about the sick, the hurting , the children seems like these are the days where our harts have become Cold and there is No God in most things we do

    Thyatira: Of all the spiritual sickness in todays church, this one stands out to me the most. Our country has opened its heart and literally doors to the Jezebel spirit.
    "Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols."
  • Evangelist Zelder Wynter
    PTL! It is sad to see the state some of the churches are in these last days. I had the opportunity to PREACH Rev. 2:1-5 The Pastor seem to be offended verse 5 Remove The Candlestick does not want to face truth of what the condition His church in. The verse "Remove the candlestick can mean different ways through chastie,death, removal pastor, church location! Please correct me if I Am wrong please

    Not to mention, if you read all the good things about church at Ephesus, it's describing many churches. You find out that it's just playing at church (Isaiah 29:13). Christ should be our first love and what is Christ, the Word. It's hard to find a church where the Word really gets taught anymore. Amos 8:11. Famine of the end times is hearing the Word of the Lord. Good pasture is leaving us.
