You may not see the immediate truth of what I warn you about until you have your own revelation from the Lord. The Holy Ghost may use something that I write on this subject to motivate a decision that you may have already been contemplating. Nevertheless, no one can lead you out of the visible, organized church but the Holy Ghost.
The most dangerous churches are those where the people are supportive and dedicated to good works. It is hard to leave smiling faces who provide good music and helpful projects and programs. After 25 years, I was led out. In fact, I literally had to be THROWN out when MY time came because “church” had become “comfortable.” The Bishop and other church officers had to mess with my comfort zone for me to leave. Then again, “I had a dream.” It was plain and it was clear. The Lord said, “Pam, if you don’t come out, you will be like a candle, hidden under a bed. I will not be able to use you.”
Perhaps that will be the case for you. Perhaps God will set you up to be thrown out. But if you are among the elect, you will either walk out yourself, or the Lord will allow the devil to use fake Christians led by demons within the visible church to PUSH you out. But out you MUST come in order to survive and escape the plagues that are coming upon those who still remain “in the house!!!” I warn “the lukewarm” to take heed to the words of Paul to Timothy and the words of Jesus to the church at Laodicea. Don’t get me wrong about this.
So what is the bottom line to Satan’s not so tender trap? How was the devil able to get into the church, and not only secure a seat in the back row, but actually make his way to the pulpit? Well, through a gradual infiltration that has taken a century or two, Satan finally has his pulpit position. You see, the gateway for the religious demon is “by invitation.” Invitations can be either formal or informal. Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness..
When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. When sermons are preached by wrenching scriptures out of their context for the purpose of making three points that have nothing to do with repentance, rebirth or the resurrection, an invitation is made to the religious demon. When salvation is taken out of the sovereign calling and election of God and put into the hands of man to “make a decision for Christ” then Satan moved from the backseat into the pulpit. When unsaved people came to church altars “chanting” as they sought to speak in tongues, they invited demons to enter them and countless of these folk are now tormented, almost fully demonized.
