Beam me up, Scotty
Or in the midst of battle during what they call an evangelistic crusade seeing him and his crew being used to wrest, by the grace of God, souls from the kingdom of Satan to the Kingdom of safety and light. As a young child I was thrilled to know that I was in the church of destiny the true church that believed and taught all of the word of God.
The actual church mentioned in Rev I was a member of it. It was the first time in my entire life that I had ever seen a grown man cry!
I remember as a family when we just came to the United States from England we worshipped at a church in Brooklyn. In my then youthful state of mind I said to myself if these people are Christians why do they act this way? Those questions where not answered in my young mind, but the impression was made that the lot of the preacher was not an easy road. With much anticipation and eagerness I set out by the help of God to follow my dream of ministry.
But even as a young minister I never really settled that battle within my brain the question of trouble in the church. The discrepancy of lives inside the church bugged me among members, church leaders and even ministers. Even before I ever had my first board meeting I began to see. Finally I finished college and I received my BA. I, who looked up to the SDA minister as one of my heroes, finally became one.
Board meetings and business meetings where every idea you have, every process, every inspiration is met with an objection from the church manual by an antagonistic member. Church Folk who seemingly pattern themselves after people in the Bible. Trouble is some act more like the demoniacs than disciples.
Sisters who seek you through the throng like the woman with the issue of blood sought Jesus hopefully not the other way around. Multiple individuals all who receive a Word from the Lord but all are different words to direct the church and also you as pastor. Members who question your authority, knowledge, competency and spirituality. The church seem lifeless and dry. You can literally skate down the isle. Not interest in outreach or in-reach as matter of fact the only thing they reach for is each others necks and yours!
The Bird dog — Four legged bird dogs point where the hunter should shoot. She has some marital problems you need to confront. They spread gloom, erase excitement, and bog down the ministry. The Entrepreneur. Just the opposite of the Wet Blanket, the Entreprenuer is enthusiastic. This is the person who comes from the union steward school of diplomacy and speaks with an exclamation point instead of a period.
This person uses money to register approval or disapproval of church decisions. Sometimes he protest silently by merely withholding offerings. He has some problems, you know. Whose list of absolutes stretches from the kind of car a pastor can drive to the number of verses in a hymn that must be sung. And you think to yourself man the brethren in the conference underestimated my gifts, abilities and talents. I thought they were sending me to the temple church in Jerusalem or even the mixed congregation on top of Mt. Gerizim would have been better but no they sent me to this little broken down shack of a church in Shinar were the members are out of their minds.
But what do you do when the church is in confusion? When Israel is in Babylon? But for any preacher to say there are no problems in my church never was and there never will be. This means that there is among us some naivety, some ignorance, some lack of knowledge, some compromising, or just basic downright lying.
Satan told his angels that the churches were asleep.
Religious Scripture / Beam Me Up Scotty - TV Tropes
He would increase his power and lying wonders, and he could hold them. Go, make the possessors of lands and money drunk with cares. If you can make them place their affections upon these things, we shall have them yet. Be very vigilant then. Cause disturbance and confusion if possible. Destroy love for one another. Discourage and dishearten their ministers; for we hate them. Present every plausible excuse to those who have means, lest they hand it out.
Control the money matters if you can, and drive their ministers to want and distress. This will weaken their courage and zeal. Battle every inch of ground.

Satan is the reason behind all this but we have got to deal with it! Wherever God pitches His tent Satan pitches his too! There are some who claim that Daniel is not a prophet. Hey he never addressed a congregation nor presented a message! What is a prophet? Jesus ate nothing all that time and he was very hungry.

Then the devil took Jesus to Jerusalem.

They will hold you up with their hands so you won't even hurt your foot on a stone. Do you know what the devil did? He gave up, but he would come back and try again.

It is as if the devil was saying, "I'll be back. We are tempted just as Jesus was tempted. What did Jesus do when he was tempted? And it collapsed and was completely ruined. This saying may originally have derived from a Jewish Christian community opposed to preaching the gospel what is holy , pearls to Gentiles. He may have taken the saying as applying to a Christian dealing with an obstinately impenitent fellow Christian Mt This is the law and the prophets is an addition probably due to the evangelist. Most of the sayings are from Q and are found also in Luke. In Christian literature it is found also in the Didache 1—6 and the Epistle of Barnabas 18— They were presumably an important group within the church of Matthew.
As in the case of the Old Testament prophets, there were both true and false ones, and for Matthew the difference could be recognized by the quality of their deeds, the fruits Mt The mention of fruits leads to the comparison with trees, some producing good fruit, others bad.
