Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

Lukewarm Churches and Christians Yoked with Unbelievers


Writer: Richard Hole | www.truechristianity.com/christian/lukewarm.htm

The Bible indicates that the Churches' beliefs are lukewarm. The below prophecy may relate to the church of the last 100 years, according to some scholars and historians who have matched the description of each church in Revelation 2 and 3 and related it to a particular time in history. The last church is the Laodiceans church. This probably corresponds to the last church of the age, and the description matches the church of today. As a result people who only believe the mainstream teachings are rejected. However, there may be some hot churches.

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked." Revelation 3:14-17

The mainstream church of today certainly fits this description. Most of the preaching is not deep and does not refer to the Bible enough. It is unlikely that people learn much about the Bible. Generally they hear things that they already know. God may consider some aspects of the mainstream Church of today the same as the Pharisees, which formed the mainstream church in Jesus' time. The Pharisees were proud arrogant people who wanted to show everyone how good they were. Jesus wants a humble loving heart that generously gives without showing off. He would not want one which openly gives a little often, for the purpose that it looks good to the congregation.

Also, verse 17Bible quoteBecause thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and nakedRevelation 3 verse 17 (above) states that the church will be focused on material things and money, more than doing God's will. This is very evident today, as people who go to church do the same things as the non-believers. They SEEK MONEY and MATERIAL THINGS more than they seek God. They seek to be part of the same corrupt system as the unbelievers, instead of spending their time doing God's will. Much of the false church have or follow many of the worldly things that are not needed, cost money and take the focus away from God. Items are even sold inside the church. How would this compare to the time when Jesus drove out those people who bought and sold in the temple?

Are you satisfied with an apostate church that is disobeying God and will be spewed out of the mouth of God (Revelation 3:14-17Bible quote(verse 14) And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

(verse 15) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

(verse 16) So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

(verse 17) Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.Revelation 3 verses 14-17
)? If you were a true Christian you would be standing up against evil and wanting to find the true church. A true person of God would not want to become part of the apostate church. In the New Testament, people of God spoke against evil and the mainstream church of their day who were the Pharisees. This could refer to all mainstream denominations. We can't compare today's churches with the Churches in Paul's time when there was a major move of God. Remember this is the last days (like the days of Noah) and mankind is generally more wicked now than they were in Paul's time. So all the churches we know of may be considered apostate in God's sight.

Signs that you are in a lukewarm church (or a cult)

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 3:13-22

Signs to look for in lukewarm churches or people professing to be 'Christian'

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4:4
