This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers,
false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.
2 Timothy 3:1-5

The Last Day Church – Rich Church, Poor Church


Modern day churches are hardly patterned after the churches found in the New Testament. The saints of old would be amazed to see what has become of the church during these last days of the Laodicean Age. The very purpose for the existence of the church in these last days is suspect from the very beginning. The calling of the last day church is completely unidentifiable to the holy calling written in the Holy Bible. The commission given to the church is simply a means to build up a group of like-minded people having the same inclination to socialize and feel good to be in the presence of one another. They need a place to fill their time. They need a religious organization for them to perform the rituals in receiving infants into their midst. They need an institution to marry their young. They need someone to perform religious rituals to send away their dead. They also need a group to network for the furtherance of their own financial and social well being. They need a support group to assist one another during the hour of need for social purposes. The existence of such an organization to satisfy all the various needs of the people hardly has anything to do with the New Testament church in the Holy Bible. The charter of the church is simply a document to legalize its existence where mental accent and consent to the creed are given to keep a system going in the church. The character of the church is simply some people professing to adhere to certain values and conduct on printed pieces of papers of the charter of the church but the lives of its members are largely distorted and have no true biblical piety and godliness to manifest the church as a called-out group of believers from the world on the way to glory land. The charge for the church is ignored and serves no relevant function in the last day where gain is the first and foremost priority for the church in our day and age. The last day church is characterized by a soft, smooth, slick, self-centred and sickening approach towards the spiritual things of Jesus Christ.

This last day church has forced many true believers in Christ to worship God in Spirit and in truth without the camp. These true sincere Bible believers have no more use of the organized institution called a church where this church has lost the biblical character of the true New Testament church. There is absolutely no necessity for the enlightened believer to feel a need to belong to such an organization to feed the spiritual need of his soul. There is completely no desire in any form, shape and size for the believer to be involved in such organizations competing with each other in the Christian market place to see who is doing better in terms of church growth in numbers, which does not necessarily commensurate with the spiritual growth of the believers in Christ. Disillusionment of sincere believers in this last day church has indirectly driven some to become members of cult groups waylaying them into bondage. The last day church is no longer the salt of world offering a true beacon of gospel light to illuminate the darkened hearts and souls of fallen men to come to embrace the true Light, the Lord Jesus Christ. The last day church is no longer the balm of Gilead providing comfort and solace to Christians in their hours of temptation and desperate need. A critical analysis of the last day church is in order to signpost true and sincere believers of the Lord Jesus Christ disillusioned by the glamour and busyness in revolving their lives around the church calendar believing they are spiritual and serving the Lord. Little do they realize that often times they are serving the agenda of the church hierarchy where personal fame and glory are the primary objectives of these profession elites! Many believers do not know that they are actually keeping such professionals employed as their gurus to tell them the will of God for their lives when they could seek this same truth from the Holy Bible. Empowerment belongs to every member of the body of Christ, the true Church, the Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let no religious organization deceive sincere believers in Christ into submitting to a system that has no biblical authority that will bring them back into bondage in which the Lord Jesus Christ has come to set them free.

The study of this last day church is based on the last letter written to the last church in the last book of the Holy Bible. The wicked spirit of the last day has thoroughly permeated the churches of the last day. May the saints arise from spiritual slumber and know that the time is short and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ is at hand, even at the door when Christ is now left outside the church door. For the Lord has said, He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (Revelation 3:22)
