What Has Happened To Our Churches?

Last night my husband and I attended a church service because a friend of ours was getting baptized. After about two minutes into it I was upset and appalled at what I was seeing and hearing.

In my early 20's I attended many rock concerts. I saw REO Speedwagon, Pink Floyd and others. They were loud and even then I knew they were too loud for my ears. Last night in church the music was so loud that I, and several people around me, covered our ears. It was louder than those rock concerts of my past.

Not only that they played the music the entire time people were being baptized. There was no way to hear the public pronouncement of their faith in Messiah or the Father. We could see their lips move and that's it. It was all about the music, not about the acts of baptism that were happening.

Once our friend went through the ritual we left. Our ears were ringing two hours after we got home. I wonder do they really believe that YHWH was honored and worshiped through that noise? I was so distressed by it all that I wanted to cry.

The way to worship YHWH is through obedience to Him and His Torah. We can't change how He wants to be worshiped, we need to worship Him how he wants. That isn't through music so loud that people there have to hold their hands over their ears because it hurts so badly. There is no where in the Word that says to sing that loudly and play music that loudly. Do they really think they are singing and playing to Him?

I wrote a letter to the pastors of the church this morning. At the end of the letter I wrote that they would just throw the letter away and nothing would come of it. They are in the world, not in the Word. The sad part is that they are leading a whole bunch of sheep down the wrong path.

Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to me, 'Master, Master!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants. 22 On that Day, many will say to me, 'Master, Master!' Didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we expel demons in your name? Didn't we perform many miracles in your name? 23 Then I will tell them to their faces, 'I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!'

D.v.d exposed rock music many years ago, as did other messengers of truth for the last many decades.
The men of truth abiding in Yahshua in russia specifically wrote to churches in the usa telling them to NOT COME BACK with the unrighteous (demonic) rock music they had brought with so-called 'revival'. The demonic music broke up families and worse.

The attacks of the Enemy have never ceased. Through all the centuries he has confused, perverted, twisted and mutilated the pure word of GOD to mislead the people of Adonai.

The frightening idea is that these pagan beliefs are accepted as normative and OK in most churches. From the change of the Sabbath to the veneration of "saints" to the celebration of most "Christian" holidays, each of us is unwittingly turning away from YHWH and to the wrong path blazed by the evil one.
