Have you gone to a place where the guitar or the keys sound so sweet that it makes you move in and out of step? The voice that comes over the mic is fine tuned and the background singers all have the diaphragm control for when they breathe and it sounds so good. Have you ever gone to a place like this?
Where the crowd pats their feet and tries to stay in beat. The crowd sings within but, it sounds so good to their ears a crackle has to come out of their mouths. The sound of it all is hitting in the red on the board and one or two speakers have cracks in the low range.
When the blood is flowing and your heart is at the point of needing a pill, intermission comes and then steps in the speaker. Sometimes their words help and sometimes you feel they need to sit down. Nevertheless, just like the beats of the drummers, the speaker is on and off beat. Just before the end, a song comes to cover the feelings long enough, so the thought of reality when it hits will not be such a great shock to you.
The whole event sometimes is known as addictive. The drunk needs the drink, the drugged out needs some kind of drug, the people need something to cover the “sh*t” within their lives so comes the entertainment of the “church.” People leave one addiction to have another a little more potent. Not all who smoke weed go to crack, because the pain may not be as hard. However, some go straight to the crack because their pain is stronger than Jesus can cure, at least the Jesus the local “churches” are providing.
I once stated that people are looking for death, because death is the only thing that would silence the pain called life. And the problem I am having is within all these “churches” there should be no pain that is felt that would make anyone want to die, or kill, or destroy themselves. But I cry because I know as the people know that the “churches” are entertainers and the preachers are “Mr. Feel Good.”
Please understand I am not talking about all ministers, because not all know the truth as I see Lucifer standing next to 90% of the preachers, while the 10% are scared to defend and give up everything and be willing to die of God or their neighbors(hoods). I cry because I see the people and I see the tears that turn to anger that turned into stealing, killing and destruction. Do you blame the people, or the leaders for what is going on?
If you say the people then you are the type who is only out there for yourself. If you say the leaders, then why are you not telling them to get their “sh*t” right. They are responsible for the peoples’ souls. What in the hell does this mean to you? And yes, I am mad as hell. I come home after 17 years and I see even you.
Show me a Jesus who had no bed to sleep on and a church with tithes for meat, and I will show you a neighborhood being healed. What denomination was Jesus, Paul, Abraham or Adam? Lucifer has you fighting each other and trying to out entertain each other. You all forgot it is not about you but those who are lesser or weaker than you. All are Jesus brethren and all are God’s children. When you do wrong to one you do wrong to Jesus and God.
Know this and take heed to God’s words:
What you do or not to men, you do it not to the men but to Jesus because they are his brethren, and to God because they are his children. Worship all you want, pray all you want, act not, know that God will not act on putting your name in the Book of Life.
Death is upon you because of the disobedience you hold on to. Death is upon you and you will visit me soon! The Judgment will be the judgment you given to men in your hearts and actions to the standard of what I given you.
