What is wrong with this picture???
The church is teaching people to be lukewarm. They are teaching people to build their own Kingdom, to pursue their own happiness and their own wealth and prosperity. I am teaching you to be on fire, to give it all to Jesus, to be hot. Jesus says if you are lukewarm I will vomit you into the streets. Well, in order for someone to vomit, they must be sick at their stomach. Would you want to be the one who made Jesus sick at His stomach???? Jesus says if you are hot, He will build an army out of you, if you are cold he can save you, but if you are lukewarm He is going to vomit you out into the streets. The church wants you to be lukewarm because radical people upset the church. Jesus was radical and He upset the church also. I want to be like Jesus.
If you have no works, you have no salvation; if you have no works, you have no faith; if you have no works, you have no love; if you have no works, you don't know Jesus; if you have no works, you are going to end up a pile of vomit on the street. If you have no works, if you are lukewarm, if you are vomit, then you are a child of the devil.
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to vomit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
