The Fall of the Mega Church Pastor?
A short while ago I posted the following:
And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all to Myself. (Joh 12:32)
I had a very tragic vision on 07/25/2010. In the vision I could see many preachers, their pulpits
were lined up next to each other,they were very learned men, some were in suits and some were in robes,and they were preaching to a very large …congregation . The eyes of everyone in the congregation and their attention were on these preachers. In back of these preachers I could see Jesus on the cross. Not one of the preachers ever mentioned the cross in his preaching and no one in the congregation ever looked at the cross, their eyes were on the preachers and they were attentive to the “wisdom” that was being taught by them.
Jesus said in John that if He was lifted up that He would draw all men to Himself. In the vision that the Lord gave me 4 years ago, it was not Jesus and the cross that was the draw but instead it was the “wisdom” of the pastors preaching to the congregation. The congregation paid absolutely no attention to Jesus nor the cross but their focus was on the pastors and their “wisdom’. Which brings me to the title of my post. Who is being lifted up? Whom is the church gathering to hear from? What is the draw, if you will, that is attracting them? The verse below is what comes to mind.
For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear. And they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to myths. (2Ti 4:3-4)
I had a vision 06/24/2014 that I believe is a continuation of sorts of the vision I wrote about above. In the vision I saw various pastors, each standing on a high mountain with the congregation below them. I did not see faces but in the vision I knew that they were mega church pastors. As I said before there were many people gathered around the various mountains that these pastors were standing on. Then I watched as the mountains that these pastors were standing on began to crumble beneath them and they were brought lower and lower and this did not stop until these pastors were actually in a hole where the mountain once stood and were now below the people that they once stood over. I observed that no one offered to help these pastors out of the holes that they were in. Everyone just walked away leaving these pastors to fend for themselves
