Luke 3:7 (NLT) When the crowds came to John for baptism, he said, “You brood of snakes!...
Hebrews 12:1-5 (NLT)

12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 

2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.

3 Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.

4 After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin.

5 And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as his children? He said, “My child, don’t make light of the Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you.

Part Two: I wrote the above paper yesterday night on the 8th of July, 2020.

Well, after I wrote it, a few hours later, as usually happens, the words begin to go through my mind. The bible says that the Holy Spirit will bring those things spoken by Jesus to your remembrance. 

Normally, after I write a particular paper, the Holy Spirit will bring to my remembrance something that I have written and sometimes, he will even tell me, "if you don't go back and clarify that sentence or paragraph, your enemies are going to perceive it such and such a way and bring accusation to you."
Then of course, there are other times, where I am not so much anointed and, "Yes, I will completely over look the obvious and make mistakes."

Nevertheless, I am glad that none of you ever do. 

Anyways, after I wrote it, I had a thought come to my mind that perhaps, I ought to make a comparison with a typical Mega Pastor or Evangelist of today and this Evangelist that I heard around 1982.

Let us pretend that the anecdote that I recorded happened today, Okay?

So, we get one of these Pastor's or one of these typical Televangelists of today and we find out that he has heard a rumor that there was an opportunity to purchase a radio station down in some little Florida city or town. 

Well, the guy takes his "Posse," to the town to investigate (All these guys have a Posse, or as some call them, Yes, men, boot lickers, as.....)but the news editor is taken a little back. 

I mean, he thought that "Posse's," were strictly for the glamorous Hollywood types. So he decides to send up a reporter to this modern day Elmer Gantry's ministry to have a look see. 

So, a few weeks later, the reporter calls back the editor, and he says, "Yea, I got a little information, but not a whole lot because this guy doesn't share his personal life."

He says, "I've talked to almost half of his congregation, but no one knows where his house is?"

I can see a huge mansion up on a hill, but it is all gated and the roads are private, so there is no access to the place. Nevertheless, a few people have pointed that out, and some think that that is where he lives, but no one can say for sure. 

I have bought this 10,000 Millimeter Zoom lens, and am able to see into the fifteen door garage, but I'm not sure that I recognize any automobile associated with the man.

Typically, he drives to Sunday Service in a Mercedes SUV, but most of these cars put that one to shame, these are all Maserati's, Bentley's, an Antique Rolls Royce Phantom, a Lamborghini and a Ferrari, so I'm not sure if they are even his. 

I mean, "What would a preacher need with those kinds of cars?

I do see a Black SUV, but I can't tell if it is a Mercedes, because that door is right behind the Heliport, where a Private Helicopter sits directly below his brand new Gulfstream G650 Private Jet near the end of the runway? 
I tried to interview his neighbors, but if he lives in that gated mansion, so he has none. 
Also, when I tried to check his financial standing in the community, most of his accounts were in the Cayman Islands, Belize, and Switzerland, and they're not always so cooperative, so I couldn't find out a thing...

Okay, Okay, perhaps, I went just a little too far. 
But SERIOUSLY, what would be the conclusion of an investigation of your Shepherd, or Pastor?
And No, not all in the ministry are like the above example, but there are A FEW. 

And instead of the church feeling shame toward that we have been taught to CELEBRATE the fact!

And could I tell you why?

It's because if the rest of the CLERGY, can condone those FEW, then it opens the door for their finances to be much greater than anything suggested in the Bible as a normal salary. 

Could I explain to all of you why there is no POWER, please, can we all say, "NO POWER!"

Can I, seriously, Can I explain to you why there is NO POWER in the church today. 

My Father explained this to me, years ago. 

Did you know that Olympic athletes can sell them selves for whatever endorsement that they see fit?
Well, you see, it wasn't always like that. 

Years ago, if you were to compete in the Olympics, you could not receive any type of compensation. 

Could I tell you why?

It was because once an athlete took compensation, in essence he was declaring I am no longer a competitive athlete trying to run my Marathon, race, trying to beat my opponent in wrestling, or slinging a discus as King David might have done. 

No, once they took that compensation, what they were declaring was I am stepping out of the race, I am now a professional.

I am no longer competing, but instead, I choose to be a sculpture on a base. I want to be admired,

I want to be Independent from every other athlete that is still competing for a prize.

What I want now is to be a star who is paid millions. You know, someone who can be admired from afar just for the way he sits, stands or KNEELS. 

My god, make me a star!

I wanna be a star!

And, I am sorry to say, this is the picture of the modern day Evangelical Pentecostal, Charismatic, Word/Faith, Prophetic church and any other church in America that you can think of.

And when I said this was the case years ago, I meant, that this has been the case for the history of the Olympics? 

What three thousand years or so?

Nevertheless, in this age of "Prosperity," the standards have all been cast to the ground. 

You see, in this "Prosperity Age," we even allow men to compete as women?

I mean, who gives a rat's ass, as long as it brings in the gate receipts, right?

No, the church ought to be ashamed for what it has allowed to exist in "American Christendom."

Do you understand what I just said?

The church has no POWER because men chose riches rather than God POWER!

They quit the race, and told God, "I would rather be a star, who lives in a mansion, drives a luxury car, and dreams for the day when I can acquire my very own, 'Private Jet,' like Brother So and So. 

How SAD, How very Sad, for this next generation that you guys have made yourselves the role models!

I have only been warning of this day for forty years. 

Again, how sad, that the church has become so inured to the message when they have watered

it drop by drop year after year.

Well, a happy Pandemic reset, to ya all, Thank you!
