Remember: For REAL healing and/or revival to occur in your life, religion will need to be eradicated.
The religious spirit
I understand that when I address this subject in this manner it may sound a bit unusual. Many times when I say these kinds of things, even if people don’t actually say it, I can see what people are thinking: What’s wrong with attending a church orientation course, what’s wrong with “going to church”, what’s wrong with helping others in need, what’s wrong with tithing / donating, what’s wrong with…..?
The answer to all of those questions is easy; nothing. Generally speaking, there is nothing wrong with participating in those activities. The problem comes when activities replace relationship and because you have never been taught what a REAL relationship with God looks like, you think that doing good things IS a relationship with God: But it’s not.
If these kinds of activities are not accomplished from the basis of love for God, then they are just religion and they will burn with everything else that is not of God.
Whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Collosians 3:23
Today I addressed the religious spirit. In a future episode we’ll address the demonic spirit of religion.
