END TIME PRIESTHOOD – ANTHONY UMEH
Signs all abound confirming that we are in the end time. God is showing His people revelations of the end time in many ways. Science and nature are also pointing towards that. Nations are preparing for wars against nations, religious war is at hand but the church of God has lost focus of its primary assignment to prepare people for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The gospel has changed from the center of our faith which is the death and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the creation of fire prayers, entertainment, and so on.
Many church leaders are acquiring properties more than any other organization, building mansions, schools, buying private jets, exotic cars. The church is now called “business center”. Attention is now shifted from worship of God to mammon, running a corporate organization with the leaders being richer than any company’s CEO. This is done to the detriment of both the spiritual and physical condition of the members.
One can hardly feel the impact of the church anymore. We have thrown away our values and virtues which is the fruit of the Holy Spirit. The love of money and prosperity is now the benchmark of Christianity. Only the rich and elite are ordained as leaders, spirituality is now based on one’s physical and material worth. We no longer bear the mark of Jesus Christ in our body but that of mammon.
We talk about Christ but do not live by His commandments. We preach love but live in wickedness. Preachers now preach for personal gain. Good orators have now hijacked the gospel, using physical efforts, human wisdom, diabolic power to convince members, using magic to perform miracles, and many are deceived.
Many ministries are founded on manipulations. Some of these ministers think they are rich but the Lord said of them in Revelation 3:17,2: Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked… He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches
