The Church Is in Coma & Losing Ground Dangerously…

by Rt. Rev. Ephraim Ikeakor, Bishop of Amichi Diocese

Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to CONTEND EARNESTLY FOR THE FAITH which was, once for all, delivered to the Saints. FOR CERTAIN MEN HAVE CREPT IN UNNOTICED (INTO THE CHURCH, AND PULPITS) who, long ago, were marked out for this Condemnation, UNGODLY MEN, who turn the Grace of God into Lewdness and deny the Only LORD JESUS CHRIST.” (Jude vs. 3-4).

Dearly beloved, the Christian Church is in a very critical and crucial state of her existence at a time like this. The Church, even though full of people and very noisy, is dangerously losing her grounds of influence on the world as the Light of the World.

As a result of Spiritual Coma, the Church has lost ground to Satan and New-Age Religion mistakenly accepted as Christianity. Carefully consider these areas where the Church has lost grounds, yet unperturbed and unrepentant:

  1. The Church has lost her Holy MEN AND WOMEN of GOD to NOLLY MEN AND WOMEN of GOD.

  2. The Church has lost her Biblical discipleship teaching to motivational and financial-empowerment preaching.

  3. The Church has lost her Church music to music in the Church.

  4. The Church has lost her worshipping and praying with headscarves and hats to Brazilian and Indian artificial hairs.

  5. The Church has lost her decent skirts and gowns to burn shorts, and trousers, and very terrible seductive wears.

  6. The Church has lost her humble, simple and unassuming pastors and preachers to very ostentatious, flamboyant, and fashion-crazy pastors and preachers.

  7. The Church has lost her Godly and Heaven-conscious pastors’ wives to hazardous contagious sin-laden and fashion-minded women as pastor’s wives.

  8. The Church has lost her Holy Bible to a “more convenient” IPad, smartphones and electronic gadgets.

  9. The Church has lost her memorizing the scriptures to projecting the scriptures in the Church.

  10. The Church has lost her weeping and meditation after sermons to clapping, shouting, and standing ovation after sermons.

  11. The Church has lost her pasting godly and challenging bible quotations on the walls of the Church to mounting televisions in the Church.

  12. The Church has lost her giving and caring for her poor and indigent members secretly to publishing pictures of poor indigent members and widows assisted in the Church on social media.

  13. The Church has lost her war against idolatry to Christianizing idolatry.

  14. The Church has lost her wall of partition between idolatry and culture to unbridled contextualization and satanic acculturation.

    The scene at typical Pentecostal Church in Nigeria with thousands of congregants who routinely throng the arena with their tithes and of course, great anticipation for miraculous cure or access to wealth.

  15. The Church has lost her Christian dance steps and styles to hip hop, pop star, shaku shaku, juju music, etc dance skills.

  16. The Church has lost her disciplining of obstinate and unrepentant members to giving awards to notorious unbelieving but rich members.

  17. The Church has lost her decent Christian praying pattern to praying like worshippers of Baal.

  18. The Church has lost her teaching on the sacredness and sanctity of marriage to wedding pregnant ladies, and half-naked women in the Church.

  19. The Church has lost her teaching on forgiveness to the prayer of revenge and vengeance.

  20. The Church has lost her focus on Heaven to addictively focusing on the things of this life.

  21. The Church has lost her obedience to Christ to obedience to men of God, even where their teachings contradict the Holy Scriptures.

  22. The Church has lost her emphasis on righteous living to emphasis on sowing of seeds.

  23. The Church has lost her use of tithes for caring for her poor and indigent members to caring for pastors only and building edifices.

  24. The Church has lost her building of schools and hospitals to the construction of filling stations and cinema halls.

  25. The Church has lost her emphasis on quality in education and membership to emphasis on quantity.

 

WHO WILL SAVE THE CHURCH OF MY GENERATION?

WHO IS ON THE LORD’S SIDE?

WHO WILL DAMN THE CONSEQUENCES OF RIDICULE AND ABUSE TO RESCUE THE CHURCH?

WHO WILL STAND OUT FROM THE MULTITUDE AND CONTEND FOR THE FAITH?

Brethren, it is either now or never. God’s heartbeat and clarion call are… “So, I sought for a man among them who would make a wall and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the Land (The Church), but I found no one” (Ezekiel 22:30).

MAY GOD COUNT ON YOU FOR THIS LAST-MINUTE RESCUE MISSION FOR THE CHURCH IN COMA, IN JESUS CHRIST’S NAME.
