While in the hospital the doctors noticed that my heart rate would drop into the low 30's, along with my oxygen levels. The ICU which was monitoring my heart would often send a team to my room to assess my condition and treat me.
On one occasion a doctor came into my room and told me that I needed to prepare myself and my family, which absolutely confused me at that moment. I was having a bad asthma attack and eventually the medications and breathing treatments would kick in and I would be on my way home.
When he said it again... it hit me! This doctor was telling me to prepare for death and I couldn't grasp the intensity of what he was telling me. He looked at me and stated in all sincerity that my heart could not sustain me while functioning at only 30%, and my kidneys and liver functions were beginning to fail.
Our minds have a way of protecting us when we hear news like this and all I remember thinking was, "What are you talking about?" Then in his callous and insensitive way he uttered, "Lady, I don't know if you will wake up in the morning" with that said, he left my room.
Still stunned, I began to pray and I asked God, "What are you trying to teach me in all of this Lord?" Almost immediately the Lord gently spoke to me and said, "Just like your heart cannot sustain you at 30% and will cause your organs to begin to fail... My church is failing for the same reasons...the Heart of My church is not functioning at 100%... and it is not making an impact on this world!"
My CHRISTIAN friends, the "Heart of the Church of Jesus Christ" is failing because many are choosing their own pathways. Sad but true... many believers are compromising core biblical values and standards as a substitute to bring in those that are really enemies of the cross of Christ!
The church has developed a posture of accommodation and an attitude of compromise. And the church wants to be in the prevailing culture more than living in the divine flow of God's favor and presence.
Be warned my Christian friends... their goals do not conform to God's Word or His Holiness and they are trying to get you to go along with them. They hate Christ's cross and they want you to hate it also!
Sin is still Sin... and unbelievers will always do what their hearts crave!!
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
