DO YOU TRUST GOD? – Dr. Billy Alsbrooks (Christian Motivation)

by

This week’s message is full of CONTROVERSY! It challenges the church status quo, questions the biblical foundation for shutting the doors of the church, and forces each believer to re-examine their own level of faith in God in this dark time of world crisis. I know it won’t sit well with some, but I feel strongly in my heart that these things must be said, in order to awaken the church leaders across the land.

Here’s the question:
Have We Been Serving God With Lip-service Only, or Do We Truly Trust Him?

I have gotten my heart broken over and over the past few weeks, by the spiritual leaders that I have looked up to for so long. Many of the great warriors of God around the world today have chosen to close the doors of their church out of fear, panic, and public peer pressure concerning the Coronavirus. During these crucial times, the world seeks REAL leadership. We as the church should be boldly and aggressively displaying that, showing them the true power of our Almighty God. Instead, many have chosen to bow, and give their allegiance to the alter of fear.

We are the church, not the building. I want to clarify that from the very beginning. We do not need to go to a building to pray, or to be heard from God. He can hear us anytime, anyplace, and anywhere if the prayer we pray is sent up wrapped in faith. However, just as is a Capital to a country, so is the church building symbolic to the nation and body of believers.

The church body should be seen on the move and on the attack during times of crisis, not paralyzed by fear. We are to never show or convey to our spiritual enemy any sign of weakness. We were never designed to be passive, scared, or timid; God does not want us to panic and run just like the rest of the world. We must Bridge the gap between God’s idea of the church, and the actual present state of the institution itself. That bridge can only be re-established by unwavering faith, bold belief, and absolute trust in God.

That bridge can only be re-established by unwavering faith, bold belief, and absolute trust in God. Religion and Rituals never healed, protected, or saved anyone. Only real faith and true relationship with God can do that.

I leave you with this question:
Would God ever punish us for trusting in him too much?

It is written,
Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

God Bless!
