Stuck In “Church”?

I had a dream where I walked off of the street into a church. The church was predominantly black but I am not sure as tp how this plays into the dream. People were lined up to greet the pastor and I too was in the line,  however, as I stated beforehand, I had just walked into the church so I am guessing I was just doing what the rest of the church did.  The pastor was a black female, again I am not sure whether or not this had any special bearing on the dream. She was going down the line greeting people until she got to me. She did not greet me but instead glared at me. I did not get the sense that she glared at me because I was not black. actually I am Italian, but because I am a watchman and I knew what was going on within the church building. The scene then shifted and I was looking for a place to sit. There was a table where 2 people were sitting both were white men. again I am not sure this had any bearing on the dream. They were reading and discussing translations of the Bible. One thing I did notice was that everything seemed ritualistic and there was no life in the church. I do not recall Jesus being mentioned at all during the time I was there. I then remember trying to leave but was having a hard time finding a way out

There are many stuck in the building called church trapped by religion and ritualism. One may leave the church system with all its rules, regulations, and bylaws but it is another thing to get this out of the individual. It is worthy of note that the word’ religion”, itself comes from the Latin wore, religare, which means to bind fast.

  1. Keep sending out the call to “come out of her ”

    “And he repaired the altar of the LORD
    that was broken down”
    (1KINGS 18:30)

    God’s purpose in raising up prophets is to restore the power and wonder of true worship. Worship is central to the purpose of God in every generatio0n. How little we realize the power that is transmitted through true worship to the people of God. It is the fundamental desire of God to find such worshippers of Him…

    “But the hour cometh, and now is,
    when the true worshippers
    shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
    for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
    God is a Spirit:
    and they that worship him must worship
    him in spirit and in truth”
    JOHN 4:23-24

    Through apathy and apostasy the altar of God becomes broken down as men neglect their spiritual responsibilities. The imposition of worldly ways, entertainment, programs, professional and orchestrated performances crowd out the true worship of God. The fire goes out and the glory of God fades from the hearts and minds of men. The true worship that comes from broken and contrite hearts is replaced with human confidence in talents and professionalism leaving a powerless and worldly church in its wake. It is at such a time as this that we see God raising up expressions of ministry that are gripped by the tepid and impotent condition of HIS Church. They confront the exaltation of men and their ways, the religion of convenience and the sheer horror of men claiming ownership over the things of God; they declare “my people, my church, and my ministry” while the true altar of God is broken down and neglected. It is a day of confrontation as the fire of God burns within the hearts of those who are concerned for HIS Glory and His Ways. The prophets of Baal are always more numerous and conspicuous. They love the attention and the adulation of the people of God. In due time God answers by fire and the trite and worldly ways of men are left to the JUDGEMENTS of God and once again the fickle hearts of men are drawn back to the TRUE ALTAR.

    There is but ONE ALTAR and it is only there that men conduct business with God. It is there that men offer themselves unto God and His purposes. It is there that men begin to see and understand the depth of the Sacrifice of the Son on their behalf and touch the awesome HOLINESS of God in spirit and in truth. In the light of such things men and women are transformed, hearts are ignited and God’s Glory is seen. From this arises a new generation of living sacrifices that have cast away the pursuits of self realization and self love to become flaming torches filled with a passion to see HIS NAME Glorified! This day is about to dawn and the PURE and HOLY Bride will arise out of the ashes of men’s ways, men’s religious systems and teachings. The day is upon us!

    The Prophetic Purpose is to restore to HIS CHURCH the true Worship of God, to see the people of God once again declare “THE LORD HE IS GOD” and to restore THE CHURCH to the place where God has preeminence in our midst.

    The call of God goes forth in this hour to empower those who will hear and arise with the very fire of God burning in their hearts.

    “…therefore gird up thy loins, and arise,
    and speak unto them all that I command thee:
    be not dismayed at their faces,
    lest I confound thee before them.
    For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city,
    and an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land,
    against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof,
    against the priests thereof,
    and against the people of the land”
    JEREMIAH 1:17

    • That is an awesome revelation Brian

    • sandra on said:

      Beautiful. I totally agree !
      Amen !

      • Don’t worry about the multiple posts Sandra. What you posted is a message for people to hear straight out of the book of James

        Jam 2:1 — Jam 2:13

        Beware of Personal Favoritism
        2​ My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor man, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here at my footstool,” have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called?
        If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

    A while ago we left our church and I don’t miss it at all.
    It is not something to be missed. I’ve heard that from more churche-leavers. There is not the urge to find another one (also cause cause it’s the same …. in an other package). Why are ‘we’ stuck in church (how church is now)? Why? Do we see on people? Is it for a good outlook? Or is it because we only want to consume, but we don’t consume the Word, and want this fixed on sunday?

    How you are at home/in your home, how much church is there, is step nr. 1. Otherwise: why bother going to a church. ‘it is so good for the kids’. Yes, but how parents live the word at home, is even better. God doesnot care if we are churchgoers, if things aren’t right in daily life.

    Besides: I love all kinds of people but especially normal people. And in churches there are so many ‘yups’! In good cloth, looking all succesfull. I find that so weird.
    Where are the ‘poorer’ ones and the ‘simple’ ones ?? Where are they??

  4. sandra on said:

    They are unconvenient (the ‘poorer’ and ‘simple’ ones)

    They are to much work (and don’t fill the bankaccount)

  5. sandra on said:

    – correction: TOO much work–

  6. sandra on said:

    They, who have lived troubles, know spiritual battle, the ‘Jobs’, would be the good guides and helpers to help others. But it is like in the world: people with smiles, good clothes and good jobs/or better: entrepreneurs (money!), get positions. That looks better. Well I know some of them, and I am shocked by there ‘faith’ and their vision on the Word. Sorry for this many posts, I still need to learn to do it in one.

  7. Excellent post and comments from Brian. Racial colours definitely not literal but symbolic.

    I understand decaying corpses go black so maybe that absence of colour in your dream signifies that sort of church is dead, whereas the only living parts are white as would be expected where scripture is focussed upon. The female representation of leadership (imho) alludes clearly to the spirit of Jezebel.
