Micah: You Will No Longer Worship the Work of Your Hands

The worst tragedy of using any human effort in ministry is it's propensity to end up in idolatry--worshiping the works of your hand [Micah 5.13]. Thus, Jesus must appear in you 100 percent and live out your life and do the ministry through you. In Galatians, Paul said God revealed His Son in him, and that's the only time Paul was able to preach the Gospel to the gentiles [Gal.1.16].

You shouldn't be in ministry until God reveals His Son in you. If the Son is revealed in you, He will do God's work through you. This way, there's no human effort--and thus, no bowing down to what your hands have made.

Only God can do God's work. Only Jesus in you can do God's will. There should be no human effort. NO HUMAN EFFORT. God should live out your life and do God's work through you. You should do nothing except watch God move in your life--in and around and through you. This means being thoroughly seeped in the spoken Word of God daily.

As it is, almost all ministries in the world today take pride in their achievements--in their mega churches, their denominations or "independent" churches, whatever that means. They do ministry through their man-made programs and well-planned (and well prayed for) goals and targets (the works of their hands). They use everything "for God"--everything except God's supernatural ways in the bible. They mock you if you just even hint at letting God move and use His supernatural ways and Word in ministry. They want nothing of God--yet they want to do things for Him.

"In that day," God says to Micah, "I will destroy (everything you have achieved)" [5.10]. When the same conditions are present today in church as they were in Micah's time, God will do the same remedy--destroy. God will destroy (and is in fact starting it now) the church that men have built for themselves using God's name. They are in fact worshiping their denominations, doing everything for the denomination's glory (although they claim it's for God's glory), in their denominational ways (with some bible verse quotations here and there to make everything look legit--just like how the devil would do it). 

They are bowing down to the works of their hands.

However, if you're sharp, you'd see churches today failing everywhere.  Sin and wickedness are rampant and unchecked in church, with church people and leaders  blatantly defying and compromising bible truths. They're all just mindlessly doing their man-made programs year in and year out, like unthinking robots. Their standards are the world's standards, their ways are the world's ways (with bible verses inserted) and some leaders even subscribe to the policy of secrecy--unwilling and unable to be transparent with their lives in public in the name of "privacy rights."

They hide the true condition of their churches and project a false image which they propagate to promote themselves, to gain more membership. They want nothing of the truth.

Look at how God is so transparent about everything. He allowed failures of His servants to be recorded in Scriptures. No secrets barred from being published, even their unabashed sexual immorality and other secret evils. God truly is light; in Him is no darkness at all.

Churches and denominations today try to cover up for their failures and wickedness, but no secret remains a secret--God will bring them all into the light and expose them. Churches and church leaders are falling--because they have all rejected the Stone which God has declared as the Capstone--the Lord Himself has done this, and this is marvelous in our eyes [Ps.118.22-24]. When we see churches built by men and for men failing, this should be marvelous in our eyes because it is God destroying men's churches. According to Psalm 118, we should declare that "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad!"

It is God's will that church people "no longer bow down to the works of their hands" so He will destroy everything and uproot their modern Asherah poles and demolish their cities. He will take vengeance on anyone who does not obey Him.

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
