The Pulpit! Your Platform!

A very dangerous trend in “Christiandom”, an error, a deviation from what “Christianity”- Christlike living is all about is what the pulpit, Christian platforms are been used for these days. I AM ALSO GUILTY! AND YOU!

The pulpit is been used these days to settle scores with those we do not see eye to eye with. Those not on our “good books”!

The pulpit is used to “Call out” those that we differ with on doctrinal issues. This is causing disunity of the body of Christ!

The pulpit is used to market ourselves, not Christ, as alpha and omega, how awesomely smart and perfect we are.

The pulpit is used to flaunt our wealth, pedigree, and our interconnectionism to the high and mighty of our world.

The pulpit is used to manipulate, oppress, oppose, and suppress others for our own selfish gain and reasons.

The pulpit is used to carryout the agenda of Satan, albeit disguised as “the work of God”!

The pulpit is been used to dissuade and persuade those genuinely seeking The Truth, The Way, and Life that there are other ways, and thus led astray!

Who are we deceiving when we discredit everything the true gospel is all about by eschewing humility, justice, and agape kind of love?

It is time we realize that we are doing more damage than repairing the old ruin, building on the solid foundation which is Christ Jesus. For with every one convert we think we may have “won” over to Christ, many more are been discouraged. Every man’s work shall be tested by fire! See therefore that you are not building with straw.

Lord, many a time I have deviated from your will, oh how I have lashed out from a place of anger and not a place of love. Please forgive me.

I have tried to remove the specks in my brothers and sisters eyes while I have logs in my own eyes blocking my views of myself, clogging my ears to hear you clearly, hardning my heart from doing the right thing, to uphold justice, peace, love, and fairness.

Abba Father forgive me. You have forgiven me much Lord, help me to forgive others.

Help me to overlook the fault of others, thier errors, arrogance and boasting, for it is your grace that has kept me humble and makes me boast only of your goodness and love towards me.

Thank you Lord Jesus for your mighty hand upon my life! As your hand is upon me Lord, no other hand shall be upon me in Jesus name, this I know!

May the light of your countenance continuously shine upon me to guide and illuminate every dark places in and around me!

Lord, would you make me terror to the kingdom of darkness? Let your fire come out of this vessel to devour everything that is not of You! Yes Lord, make me a vessel fit for your use in Jesus Christ mighty name I pray. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

  1. I forgive you if you’ve done any of these things from the pull-pit. But thank goodness, it was these abuses and many more like them that made me investigate, return to Christ, and desire to never sit in front of a pull-pit again. The practice of preaching from the pulpit originates from Babyon and entered in among the New Testament believers through Romanism.

    We are the church. We should be a walking, talking sermon, not weak souls seeking someone to preach at us.

    • And thanks for forgiving me. I pray we all see through the lies of Satan, its deception of causing fractions, misunderstanding, disharmony amongst believers in order to weaken the strength of UNITY.

      • At this point I think all true believers are connected in Spirit wherever they are and whatever their walk. There should be no disharmony among these, as all are capable of going directly to Almighty to get the same answers, and of course, He never changes.

      • True! Yet amongst the apostles there were differences Paul and Barnabas in Acts 15 for example. Paul and Peter in Galatians 2 when he was hypocritical. We get this every now and then. When promptly addressed it hinders Satanic infestation which causes disharmony.

      • Yes, it is good to communicate, but congregating is yet another thing. The Acts early church communicated, met as families, and shared their gifts. It wasn’t until the 4th or 5th centuries that the Ecclesia began to congregate and that was under Roman duress.

        We are no longer in the 1st century with Paul and Barnabas, Peter and Paul. We are in the 21st century. We must be the flag-bearers they once were.

        The reason for satanic infestation today is not because people don’t communicate, but because people congregate. How can you infest something that isn’t gathered in one place?

        The congregating problem is addressed in Revelation 18:1-4 and the solution is in verse 4. This is why the churches which people have been called into struggle. They should be ecclesia, which means called out, but they’ve become churches, which have become called in.

        It is easy to target a mob. That is usually the course of action if someone wishes to make some kind of impact. Foul spirits (fowls) know this, and obviously John was alerted concerning this time as well.

        We can be one-on-one with Christ. This is not a position of weakness. Rather it is a position of strength. If all were one-on-one and not co-dependent, people’s walks would be much deeper, and as they drew closer to Christ would resemble each other much more than their forced proximity allows at present.

        Just something to think about.

      • Forsake mot the assembly of believers comes into mind here. It’s mandatory for iron to sharpen iron, however, gathering simply for the sake of gathering for entertainment and another. Our coming together must be to learn from each other, that is education! We must congregate as believers and social beings. How else can we function well to impact each other and the world?

      • Please read that whole chapter. Forsaking the assembly has nothing to do with houses of worship, but rather the body of Christ.

        I’m not sure why this verse is so often pulled out of context. Actually I am sure, but wondering why others dare not perceive it.
