Will A Holographic Preacher Be Coming To An Alter Near You?

23 Jan

Now considering not everything that is supernatural is of the Lord. I tell you the truth there is a serious counterfeit version of Christianity unfolding before us in the world today. Just as the Holy Scriptures forewarned us about before Christ’s return. For example, we read in 1 Timothy 4:1,” Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;” We also see in 2 Timothy 4:3,” For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

So we really need to understand the Word of the Lord so that the true church is operating in all the gifts of the Holy Spirit today. Is this a suggestion or commandment? 1 Corinthians 12:31,” But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.”

If you didn’t know what the genuine church looks like, how will you be able to discern the counterfeit version of Christianity? In much the same way people are fooled by counterfeit money who can not tell the difference, simply because they have not taken the time to know the difference. Many people know about Jesus, but do they actually know him as only a true born again, Spirit-Filled believer can know Him?

When the Lord Jesus had a church service what did He do? Clearly Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua preached the Gospel, healed the sick and cast out demons. Then He told us to do this as well in His authority and almighty name, John 14:12,” Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

Notice there is no limits on what you can ask of the Lord for because all things are possible with God!

After Jesus glorious resurrection, one of the very first things he instructed his true followers to do was cast out evil spirits in his name. (Mark 16:15-20) Sadly today it appears most professing believers have never cast out one evil spirit in the almighty name of Jesus, nor have they laid hands on the sick and seen them recover. If you have been truly baptised in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, you can not help operating in these gifts and experiencing the fruits of the Holy Spirit?

Why are we even instructed to meet as a church? We read in Hebrews 10:25,”Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Do you see the day approaching? Do you think it is possible we shall see the Lord Jesus return in our lifetime watching the prophetic landscape being fulfilled before us as we do today?

Is there any evidence in the our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural that the church is ever to be a spectator event, where the people are simply entertained every week? Did the Lord Jesus ever give a seeker friendly message anywhere in all of Scripture, so no one was offended? My Bible says in Matthew 4:17,” From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Is the church suppose to separate young and old so we can no longer truly relate to each other the Gospel message and share life with people who are different from us economically, intellectually, and generationally? Do we need the living Word of God, or do we need more church consultants to help mold and make more modern day motivational speakers we now mistakenly call pastors even more popular? Didn’t we read in John 3:30 ,”He must increase, but I must decrease.”

I find it interesting how these popular motivational communicator type versions of pastors are able to carefully avoid actually quoting the Holy Scriptures in front of their audiences. (notice I did not say congregation) Giving you a nice message without need of repentance that makes you feel good and justified in your sins? We were certainly warned the day would come when many in church will no longer endure sound doctrine.

Has anyone noticed the amazing advances we are making in technologies just as the Bible forewarned us would take place in the last days. Daniel 12:4,”But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” So we now have a new business of churches, instead of being about God’s business. We have the new version of church as an actual “franchise” and the preacher as the “product.” If fact some have now employed these technologies to be able to franchise satellite churches and have their pastor become a star commodity by projecting him from their home church building as a life-sized holographic image to help entertain more people in more church buildings they own and operate. So now we can experience a holograph preaching on the alter, giving a fast tasty junk food type of message. We read in Galatians 1:8 ,”But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

Please hear my heart I am not against technologies, and its advancement because clearly fire can be used to keep you warm and cook your food, or it can burn your house down and worse.

It seems to me if you had a weekly gathering of thousands of people who say they love the Lord Jesus, surely the Lord would call numbers of them to help lead the church with supernatural signs and wonders following. What sort of signs followed the Lord Jesus I hear you ask? The sick were healed and people were delivered of evil spirits, yes those signs. All the gifts of the Holy Spirit ought to be operating in every true church of the Lord Jesus, yes including prophesy and speaking in supernatural languages. (1 Corinthians 12)

 If you stop and consider this, it appears that if someone today were to stand up and say, “I have a prophesy”, or started speaking in an unknown tongues in these modern popular churches the ushers would probably quickly escort them to the back door and they will be forbidden to ever reenter.

So what is the whole church is suppose to be doing? I mean the Word of God tells us clearly in Ephesians 4:11,” And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:” What’s perfecting you?  Removing the old so the new can come. Removing the spirit of bitterness so forgiveness can come.  Removing the spirit of anger and hatred so love can come. Allowing the Holy Spirit to purge the impurities to make you a vessel of honor.

This clearly means all of us disciples of Christ are suppose to help minister to the body of Christ. Every believer ought to be able to lead someone into salvation and pray for the sick and see them healed in the almighty name of Jesus!

 For we read in Hebrews 5:12,” For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”

If this is strong meat to you, then it means its time you got off the milk and get on with the great commission. Amen!

Luke 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love. PASTOR CASPAR
