Broken Promises

The church body is broken with sin.  Hence, out of brokenness comes brokenness apart from the healing Spirit of Christ.  When the church body acts on it’s own accord without consultation of the Holy Spirit then bad things result.  People are hurt.  Brokenness ensues.  Broken promises result.  I’m sure most of us have been disappointed by “the church” in one way or another.

I was taught by the Holy Spirit a long time ago to STOP trusting in man…ANY man, especially the church!  The only One I can trust is Jesus Christ.  His Spirit is the only One who can lead and guide me into all Truth.

There is a really strong spirit of deceit afoot nowadays.  I believe it is part of the great falling away.  Mega churches and false prophets have sprung up all over the place…every time I see one all I can think of is Jesus’ words, “The path is narrow…” Church “bodies” are being tempted into decadent feelings of pleasure and emotion, numbers and greed-driven growth,  rather than on simply spreading the Word of God.

I can see it trying to influence my life, and the spiritual pull can be almost overwhelming at times.  But I have been taught to listen to my heart, and not to ANY man, let alone a group of men.  Men can be wrong.  Jesus never is.  Men will break their promises.  Jesus never will.  Men can be influenced by the spirit of deceit.  Jesus IS the Truth.   My allegiance is to Him.  Not to any church or pastor or man.  They can only break because they are broken.  Only Jesus can keep His promise, restore, heal, and make whole.  Jesus is my promise.

Isaiah 42: 6 & 7  “I the Lord, have called you in righteousness;  I will take hold of your hand.  I will appoint you as my promise to the people, as my light to the nations, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.”

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
