Whereas the problem of the world is regeneration, the need to be translated from death to life, the problem of born again Christians is growth in grace. Every believer has the option to grow or not grow in the things of God thereby occupying till Christ returns to consummate all things.
Jesus is returning for a church without spot, wrinkle or blemish. The Body of Christ has been corrupted by mammon, pursuit of pleasure and inordinate ambition for power. There is urgent need for followers of Christ to bring revival to this end-time church as the time for the return of the Lord draws near.
Consequently, the time has come to deal with mammon the god of riches that has invaded the church by ensuring that the demand, collection and utilization of money in the church are in accord with New Covenant biblical provisions.
It is also important to preach the gospel of the grace of God to unbelievers and teach the principles of the doctrine of Christ to those who believe as the original Apostles did rather than saturate the church with the doctrine of material prosperity and make the Church of Jesus Christ look like a huge worldwide commercial conglomerate.
I am persuaded that before any genuine and meaningful revival can take place in this present evil world, the church must as a matter of utmost urgency:
• Cancel Levitical tithing to remove the curse currently plaguing the organized church, together with those who pollute the church with blood money.
• Cancel all grandiose building projects and programs and channel funds so released to evangelism and discipleship.
• Empty Bank vaults of cash stashed there by church denominations for the ‘rainy day’ and use the cash to meet the needs of poor brethren and the persecuted church anywhere in the world. The ‘rain’ has started falling already.
• Provoke individual and corporate repentance for keeping Jesus out of His Church for so long and following wrong doctrines instead of following the Lord and imitating the original Apostles.
• Encourage self-judgment by partaking in Holy Communion daily corporately and privately with Spirit-led teaching to prevent some folks from falling sick or falling asleep due to ignorance.
These should be regarded as the minimum requirement for internally-generated revival in the militant church.
