If you read the Facebook post 8/28/2014 on Victoria and Joel Osteen, you see she said you go to church not to Glorify God, but to glorify yourself. You make God Happy when you make yourself happy. That is a very ‘short version’.
I do not go to church to make God Higher….HE is as high as can ever be! Church is a body of baptized believers, coming together to fellowship, glorify God, praise Him, and hopefully hear a message or two that I can use in every day life. Then I take it out of the doors of the building and ‘WE’ become THE CHURCH outside that building the other six days of the week. #1. Feeding the hungry, clothe the naked, take care of the widows and orphans. #2. Tell others what Jesus Christ has done for me. Invite them to come to Service on Sunday. #3. If you are not hearing from the Lord on a daily basis, get back into your Bible. It is the daily road map. If I don’t, how am I going to know when someone like this comes along with FALSE TEACHINGS?
I pray for Joel and Victoria…I pray someone they look up to will step in and show them the error of their ways. God can open their eyes, if they will get back into the Bible and stop making it about prosperity.
God will grant us the desires of our heart, when each one of us ‘put ye first the kingdom of heaven.’ In God’s will, all is done for us, in God’s timing….I want to be in God’s will, always.
I pray for my grandson, Carter. God knows what he needs. God knows what Jaye, Lori and each one of us need. Lauren is the only one of my grandchildren who has not accepted Jesus as their savior, and I am not sure she understands. Now that Jaye has started taking them back to church, she will. She has to learn the difference between truth and FALSE Prophets.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!
