The church must modify some of the ways that she does things to be attractive to the rapidly changing technological and social map.
As the web is now found “in the cloud”, the church must become “the church in the cloud.’
The church’s logo should read, “To provide virtual on line solutions for the body of Christ.”
Several things that the church has attempted to change have been disastrous because they are none negotiable in the kingdom of Jesus Christ.
1. Never change the relevancy of Jesus Christ.
Never be ashamed of the Name of Jesus Christ.
He is, and will continue to be, the most appealing and significant Person on earth, regardless of generation or social makeup.
Humanity has always considered Him as its central figure and always will.
2. Never water down, sweeten up or compromise the Bible, which is the Word of God to be relevant to…

This word was given by my good friend, Bruce Broussard.
Bruce has a prophetic seer ministry.
I have heard and given hundreds, if not thousands of words of prophecy in 35 years of ministry.
Yet, I have heard no more than a dozen where the Spirit of conviction and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord attended the Word.
The strongest case was in New Mexico. The Word spoke about the beginning of a judgment period in the USA. The preacher gave a year, and it turned out to be as He said, eight years later
Bruce’s word was one of those dozen words in which the fear and conviction of the Lord fell and remained for the remainder of the service.
It’s so significant a word that I asked Bruce to share it with us.
Friday Morning, the Lord woke me up around 5:30, as I laid on my bed I started to hear an alarm, it was loud enough for me to check my phone and see if I had set my alarm but it was not my phone, I than began to think maybe it’s a car alarm but I realized this was no car alarm.
It sounded like an evacuation alarm, like a “code red” in a factory, after a minute or two of hearing this I realized this was something supernatural, I was hearing inner audibly from the spirit, I than began to hear a different type of an alarm, different from the first one which, confirmed this was not just something on my phone or a car outside.
I than heard the Lord say, “take away the noise”, I automatically knew what the Lord was speaking about. It was like it was automatically translated in my spirit. A lot of times when parallel parking a car, or trying to concentrate on something, any excess noise can be a disturbance and throw off our focus, it can hinder us from performing at the highest level because were caught between excess noise and our mission.
The Lord was speaking about his second coming and for the “Body of Christ” to let go of all things that would be considered excess noise, distractions, hindrances, things that we might be entertaining, things that we must let go of because there is no time to waste, he is coming soon!
Matthew 24:42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”
Mark 13:35-37 Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back – whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’
(Luke 21:34-36) Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
(Luke 12:40)You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
Let us all be reminded, in the midst of our ministries , our jobs, our schooling, in the mist of our daily lives, let us never lose the urgency within our hearts, let us never forget the “Word of the Lord” which says, I am Coming Soon, and to be ye ready, and when we have examined our hearts before the holiness and presence of thee Almighty God…may we in love, and in compassion… and in all meekness …warn others…so them too, can be ready when the trumpets blow and the Lord is standing upon the cloud in full glory.
I know there are trials and tribulations and hardships In this world, But continue to Fight the Good fight of faith…Endure… For I Am Coming Soon.
1) 2 Cor 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Let us wash ourselves off, from every defilement so that all actions that affect the flesh and spirit can become matured into God’s standard.
This standard is the absolute separation from all that is common to this world into a devotion to what is sacred and precious to God.
2) 1 Thess 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The God that brings “shalom peace” bring it into your life. This may He do by separating you totally from all common things, and bringing you to a devotion to the sacred things of God.
This sanctification is accomplished by your spirit, soul, and body each made complete, whole, and without defect, so that your life might not have one source of just criticism placed upon it.
May you be guarded and kept in this condition until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
3) 2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Transformed: To alter the outward appearance without a significant inward change.
It is closely illustrated to an architectural schematic, and shows us how the enemy can change the schematic of things.
4) Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
“To give place” is like building an airport runway upon ourselves, for the devil to land upon.
Habitual disobedience to Jesus does this. We create an airport runways on our backs, where the enemy can land and take off at whim.
5) Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
This scripture is not given only to non-Christians. The devil is an equal opportunity attacker.
The Greek word for worketh is giving energy to.
The children of disobedience will allow the devil to energize his schemes.
Disobedience is non-compliant, defiant, and stubborn.
Any person who relates in this way to the voice of the Holy Spirit will allow the devil to energize his schemes, Christian or non Christian.
I know people who have been Christians for 35 years who are in the same predicament of bondage as the day they came to Jesus.
6) John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
“The prince of the world system comes, and it is impossible for him to have the tiniest connection with me.”
The real binding of the enemy occurs when every part of our lives has come into conformity to God’s will, and the enemy is forbidden a place or space where he can afflict us. The demonic had absolutely no relationship with Jesus. This is binding the enemu
7) 2 Timothy 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
That they may return to a sober condition and out of the snare of the devil, after having being hunted down, taken captive, and caught alive by him, in order to do “his” will.
So few understand how the devil manipulates and attacks them.
For many the devil is not real.
Nothing delights him as much as when people believe that he is a figment of the imagination.
8) 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Be controlled, free of evil passions, and serious in in your relationship to Jesus, because your “opponent in court”, the devil, as a roaring lion, lives to earnestly seek, whom he may drink down, swallow, consume, and destroy.
9) Mat 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
He travels continually throughout arid places “seeking a cessation of his now unpleasant circumstances”, and in no way finds it.
This shows the necessity that demons have to possess a living being
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
I will return into my house from where I came out, and having arrived finds it vacant and in a perfected state of being swept, and cosmetically adorned, but empty of the Spirit of God.
45 Then he goes and takes along with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and entering in they dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Thus it shall also be for this wicked generation.”
