The church all over the world is under attack in four ways.
- Government and governmental entities
- Marginalizing the church
- Declaring the church is not essential
- Creating mandates that have closed down the church
The world continues to threaten to cancel the church while the enemy causes a great lethargy to descend on those content to do church at home while slowly leading them towards a deconstruction of faith and becoming a “done-er”.
We’re one generation from the church losing everything.
This was what happened with the halfway covenant. The church no longer required an authentic conversion to Jesus Christ; they let people become members and receive communion.
Then, the next generation of preachers were in the pulpit and had never been born-again or experienced the move of the Holy Spirit.
They preached from their intellect, not from personal experience.
So what did God design the church to look like?
