The messology of the black church

Nathan Simmons is gone now, his voice no longer calling it like we all knew it was. But when you look around in the church today and see the degenerate messology people are celebrating, you can’t help but say preach, preacha! He excoriates black church, culture in particular with its diseased obsession with personalities.

Sure, there was an element of controversy following even Nathan Simmons which sometimes made his sermons sound almost contradictory. But here in this moment, the message is true. However as powerful as it is, we must take it beyond just the preached word. We have to take both offensive and defensive action. Saints, make a covenant with God that you will no longer applaud that which is putrid in his nostrils. Make a covenant that you will live holy and not get caught up in the demon talent cult seated in today’s church. Let your circle of influence know that talent and gifts will perish, but the word of the Lord endures forever (1 Peter 1:25). If we forsake God’s word, then we are utterly lost.

Psalms 119:105 says Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Without the light of the word, those who trust in the lying prophets, false teachers and the musical cohorts assisting them will trod a path to hell and destruction.

Don’t be silent and passive, proclaim God’s truth to all without respect of persons!

And for all that is worth, the difference between clean and unclean, holy and unholy must never be compromised.

  1. Pastor Foster,
    Thanks for sharing this word from this great man of God. Pastor, What is it going to take to turn the Black Church as well as the American Church around? I pray daily for God to raise up men like yourself, Independent Conservative, I’mSpeakingTruth, and other men after God’s own heart with the anointing to shake the nation!

    Prophetically, the spirits of Ahab and Jezebel are running the Black Church and the American church. We have pray fervently as Elijah did and more, and instead of a stoppage of rain for 3 and half years–maybe we need to pray for financial drought in the Church’s funds–I know that sounds ruthless but somebody has got to cut off these “Personalities!” and the “Bling” and the MegaMesses in order the sheep to see the gospel is not about popularity, fame, and fortune–but the saving of men’s souls from a FIERY HELL! I am not advocating the death of these wolves because I pray that they repent and come back to CHRIST and the Cross, but I am advocating the death of their ministries, their influence on the weak sheep, and their reach!

    I close with this quote, even as wicked as a king as Ahab with God’s judgement set against Ahab, the Lord was still merciful to Ahab.
    1 Kings 21:25-29 KJV
    (25] But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.
    (26) And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all things as did the Amorites, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
    (27) And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.
    (28] And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
    (29) Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: but in his son’s days will I bring the evil upon his house.

  2. Pastor Foster,

    I was quite surprised to hear the word of truth from this Preacher. The reason I say this is because what I considered Pentecostal preaching to be is what we here and at other sites condemn such as the TBN ilk. I never knew that such preaching existed.

    I have to voice my suprise and delight at hearing this message. I’m a white, English, traditional evangelical preacher. This style of preaching and meeting is a million miles from me. Usually the message I hear from “American Black Church preachers” (for want of a better description is a million miles from me too.

    Not this. If only the Lord raised up more men like this who told it like it was. You see in his face the urgency, the desperate desire to communicate the message, yet I fear that in that room were many moved by emotion, who weren’t listening, just as in most churches.

    May the Lord open our ears to hear.

    GCMW: Jonny, thank you for weighing in all the way from the UK. The American church is in major crisis. God is sending his prophets to call them out of their sin back to God, but you probably won’t hear of them. The major Christian networks kill them by refusing to have them on. Instead they feature the pop preachers of blessings and miracles. These hirelings feed the sheep cotton candy and tell them all is well. As you noted, the style may be different that what you are used to, but Im thankful for the Isaiah 58:1 message.

    As a matter of fact, in verses 1-12 of that chapter, the prophet tells how “the church” is angry with God because he will not acknowledge their self righteousness. All the while they pretend like they really want to know what he thinks. But when God sends his true messengers, they killed them.
