The Congregation of the Dead

Proverbs 21:16 The man that wanders out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

Betcha never saw that verse? Many today are restless, out of sorts. Maybe your church is lagging behind – maybe it never was very much alive. Don’t dump God. Check out to see where you belong because God is busy all over the world, and no where near dead.

John 5:17 (New King James Version) 17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.” OK where is all this going on? God is at work – so where is it happening? Does your church support missions – I mean really – not merely passing the plate on occasion.

Are they making disciples (not just converts)? Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Have you seen baptisms? Have you seen the Spirit move? Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.

Have you seen anyone healed? Acts 8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.

And what about you – are you growing up in Christ or do you only know him through other people’s witness, the Bible, or leaders – do you know Him yourself? Job said (very surprised) Job 42:5 (New King James Version) 5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.”

No, you don’t have to see Him physically, just with new spiritual eyes. That is when things happen. Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart

Start your adventure today and get out of the dead places.
