Praise the Lord.
A new year and a new day. But sin is still on the rise. Disobedience is becoming more wide spread. False teaching and false doctrine is increasing. There truly is not time to waste if heaven is where one wants to spend eternity.
Influencer's are not servants of the Lord. The Lord calls for there to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers (Ephesians 4:11). And the Lord set these in his church to perfect the saints, for the work of the ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect an, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: that we henceforth be not more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleights of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive:"- Ephesisans 4:12-14
The word of God is exact and true. There is not private interpretation. Herein lies one of the reasons for elders in the body. To ensure that the doctrine continues to be taught the way it is written. With each generation, there will always be a new gospel they will try to bring forth. Not so much out of the desire to be contrary to the word of God, but because they do not know the word of God. It is said a generation usually consists of a 15-20 year span of time. So every 20 years a group of souls are birthed that do not know but need to know about the Lord and His holy ways.
The Lord told his people under the Old Covenant not to mix with the people in the promise land. The Lord told them to drive them out. The Lord tell us under the New Covenant to love not the world neither the things that are in the world. The Lord tells what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness ??
The internet has benefitted the world, false doctrine more than it has benefitted the church. An individual can google truth, holiness, Jesus and come across all kinds of information from all kind of people. Which one is right? How will the person looking for truth know which one is right? If one has never heard or been taught the doctrine, how will he or she know what is truth???
And even if the name of the church has Pentecostal, Apostolic or Holiness in it all are not teaching the truth as it is written. It brings tears to my eyes when a see a soul misled by false doctrine. When I see the wolves in sheep clothing sitting in the congregation looking to prey upon the soul that does not know the truth. The soul that has not been rooted and grounded in the truth. When I see those that say they are saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost arguing, causing discord among the brethren, lying and stealing and souls think because that person testifies, sings and dances they are saved. Not so.
When Steadfast Apostolic Church was birthed the Lord laid on the heart of the servant not to change His ways. Stand in and for the truth. He said a great price would be paid to do this. But the servant was willing to obey. Then the Lord put it the servants heart.
One thing can be said for certain, Steadfast Apostolic Church preaches and teaches the truth according to the scriptures. And if something is said in error, we are not too proud to repent and correct it. Some would say, 'if that is the truth, why is not your full?' No where in the Bible has truth ever had a large following. The blessings and miracles the Lord performed did. But not the truth. The truth exposes all that is right and all that is wrong. Because it is not Gods wish that any would perish. People come and go, but the teaching of holiness continues and will continue. We are not swayed by society.
Another thing Steadfast Apostolic Church does, it makes itself available to the people. The people can call, email or text the need to talk to the pastor and the pastor will make the time. The pastor will sit with the people after service and fellowship. The pastor will greet and set with young people and talk with them, love on them (if they let me). The Pastor will pray for the people at the altar (another lost way of the holiness church).
In this last day I find that many are fooled by their own thinking when it comes to allowing the ministry of Jesus Christ do its job; minister to you. Minister what? The truth as led by the Holy Ghost. Pride, rebellion, disobedience and self are the biggest enemy of the soul. This I have seen down through the years.
Souls do not need an influencer. Souls do not need a place where they can show case 'their gift'. Souls need Jesus Christ.
If your desire is to saved, contact us. Better still come to our services. One does not become holy over night. It is a day by day journey. The scriptures says it best, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."- Matthew 6:33. "Not forsaking the assembling of yourselves together as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."- Hebrews 10:25
