As I sit here writing this, my heart is grieved with the dysfunction occurring in the Body of Christ. I was recently going about my day and I heard the Lord clearly say,"I'm dismantling the dysfunction." So I began to seek the Lord for more about what He was saying. I believe this word could be layered and applied to a few different situations, like what is going on in our nation. God is dismantling the dysfunction of our nation, and I also believe simultaneously He is doing it in the Body of Christ. There is corruption and corosion that has infiltrated it's way in. Sadly, many believers are unaware or too afraid to rock the boat. We must awaken! "Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you" (Ephesians 5:14).
For too long the Church has been on auto pilot. While on auto pilot seeker friendly gospel is being preached, feel good messages taught, and powerless services have become common. What many believers don't realize is some of the churches they are attending, are only teaching half truths instead of the whole Gospel. Many in this hour don't even know they are even being deceived, because they don't know the Word of God for themselves. Worship has become entertainment or a concert, instead of an encounter with the Father. Alternate lifestyles are being accepted instead of being delivered. Some churches are run like a business instead of a hospital for the wounded.
I believe God is going to start dealing with those in leadership postions. Those who've distorted the Gosepl and profited for themselves. I believe man has turned the Church into something it was never intended to be. I'm reminded of the story in Matthew 21:12-13 where Jesus cleansed the temple. He drove out all those who were buying and selling things. And He declared, "My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers." The buying and the selling were not the issue, it was the spirit behind it.
The Father is getting ready to expose the dysfunction and falsehood many in leadership are operating in. The people of God in some situations don't realize they're being robbed in their spirit. When there is dysfunction in the Body, there is impairment. God is about to dismantle those who've built their own kingdoms for their own profit, instead of building the Kingdom of God. False teachings and prophets are getting ready to be exposed. The Father is redefining and rewiring His Body to function the way He intended. He is desires to clean up the corruption and corrosion that is spreading like a cancer in the Body. Many have learned to function without the Holy Spirit. Because Holy Spirit is not welcomed, the Spirit of truth does not reside within many churches and ministries.
God is restoring purity and holiness to His Church. In order to function properly, purity and holiness will be at the forefront. The Father is no longer tolerating those who mock or mimic Him. He is exposing and uncovering hidden agendas. Make sure to test the spirits (1 John 4) because there are those operating in the wrong spirit. We're coming into season where God is exposing falsehood, dismantling those who've "robbed" the people of God in their spirits, minds, and pockets for their own gain. The veil is coming off those who've hoodwinked the body.
The Father loves His Church and longs for it to function in wholeness, purity, and power. He is dismantling those who've set up their own kingdoms within the Kingdom of God. The Father will never promote what distorts,exalts above, and blemishes His name.
