Life of the church in the 21st century

The Church is not an organization controlled by humans,
Church of Jesus Christ empowered and directed by the Holy Spirit and Jesus said: “Nature will not mastering his death.”
(Matthew 16:18).
But the reality of life in the 21st century church as a whole to date most have not walked in the supernatural power of the infinite God as He wills.Many Christians bound by the spirit of “religion” that kept them apart from the doctrines and traditions of man that would impede the movement of the Holy Spirit which is new.

Jesus never mentions the Pharisees and religious leaders of His day as a hypocrite because, “God’s Word you nullify” with their traditions passed down from generation to generation (Mark 7:6-13)
The same thing happens in the life of the church in the 21st century,
many people hold on man-made doctrines and they can not accept the truth because human tradition has blinded them.

Sadder still is that the average Christian is still alive in levels far below what God has in store for her.
although the majority of Christians believe that God is the one who is supernatural and many believe will be his power to work miracles, but they do not see Jesus as the source of supernatural provision for themselves, proof of many churches that broke not because of theology or doctrine alone but because internal issues management, succession issues and there are many Christians who live in this world.

Too bad they chose not to get into the lifestyle in which they believe and expect the Lord Jesus to manifest Himself to them through supernatural miracles and miraculous signs that God is doing for the nation of Israel and the early church .

Dangers that we face today and that will hinder us in God’s purpose is to forget, ignore and even deny the supernatural matters and does not consider it important that values ​​can bring His miracles and trying to rely on the human ability and human wisdom that church will live and walk without God’s supernatural power.

The Bible says people in his hometown of Nazareth did not believe in him that he can not hold any of the miracles there, except to heal a few sick people by laying his hands on them, and he was amazed at their unbelief.
Furthermore God said: “Thus saith the Lord:
Cursed is the man who trusts in man, who relied on his strength and whose heart turns away rather than God! ”
(Jeremiah 17:5)

Do you believe?

In a village, there is a mother who began to diligently pray upon hearing the pastor preach about faith as a mustard seed can move mountains.
He prayed for his long illness can be cured.
However, after a month of prayer, did not happen. and he was told the matter to the minister.
Finally the priest agreed to pray with her mother in front of him.
When selasai say “amen” and saw his son was not recovered, the mother says, “Right reverend sir, even from the beginning I’d guess that it’s not possible.”
Shaking his head, the preacher said, “Mom just not sure?! How healing can happen?”

Mom was just one example of the many believers whose attitude like that.
They claim to believe in God, but often do not believe that God is willing and able to help them.
It is not easy to believe in a difficult situation, as an officer who became aide king in the story “Crisis Samaria”
Samaria crisis occurred because it was surrounded by an army of Samaria in Aramaic.
Direct food prices soaring, pigeon droppings kab quarter alone cost five shekels of silver (2 Kings 6:25)
Even as the crisis was, until the event occurs cannibalism. It was horrible!
King can not do anything to resolve the crisis.
Unfortunately, rather than plead guilty because he could not be responsible for the welfare of people, instead he blamed Elisha.
In fact he intended to kill Elisha.
Even worse, the king blame God for the crisis was the great Samaritan.
Obviously, the king did not believe that God can help them.
As a prophet, Elisha had to convince the king that the crisis will soon be over, so that the food prices down and affordable for ordinary people.

But sadly, mistrust has now turned to the officer who became adjutant of the king.
His words clearly indicates disbelief.
“Even if God made the windows of heaven open, dishes that happen?”
Because of unbelief, he did not enjoy the blessings of God, even he finally dies trampled by the crowd.

Confidence will affect a person’s attitude to life, as well as influence the outcome of what is expected.
People who believe in showing respect to God in prayer and enthusiastic.
God will not remain silent, at the right time He will fulfill what is expected of the person.
If we are now being squeezed issue, whether the disease will not go away or financial difficulties, do not ever doubt God.
Believe with all your heart that God will show His love and His power.
Trust me up real miracle! ***
