Let's Talk: Has the Church failed?

Valery McAllister-Lawton

I asked Apostle Woods if a non- diverse, non- integrated, and non- inclusive Church help correct the problem, or does that type of Church become part of the problem?  Has the Church failed?  Apostle Woods replies, “Yes, the church has failed, I mean the church as an organism, and I don't mean the body of Christ and I don't mean the Church of Jesus Christ.  One of the places where the church has failed is that God did visit men and women with supernatural encounters that developed denominations. Whether your talk about the Baptist, the Seventh Day Adventist, each founder had a supernatural encounter with God and out of it came a revelation.

God never intended denominations to replace Him, no more than he wanted to give Israel a king.  He was their King and the place where the church has failed has been through denominational-ism. It is what has separated us. Yes, that is what has separated us, and yes they had encounters, and I don't take that from them,  but they never should have built themselves up outside of the Kingdom and should have built whatever God revealed to them as a pillar.  No other foundation can any man lay, than that that which is laid (I Corinthians 3:11), and then we build on the foundations of the prophets and the apostles (Ephesians 2:20), and in all actuality, they should have built and continued to progress the church, through that revelation, and not separating themselves as some high being, or higher authority and the only ones right .That’s pride. that’s ego. Jesus came preaching the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (Matthew 4:17).  The Kingdom is diverse, the kingdom is integrated, and the kingdom is inclusive. Jesus broke the barriers between the Jews and the Samaritans. He broke the barriers between the poor and the rich.

Jesus never dealt with skin color, He dealt with Truth.  You never see one conversation where Jesus said, and all of you that are this shade. He dealt with Truth. It was never mentioned, and yet the church has taken the bible and argued over things.  Paul encouraged Timothy, saying, after I am dead this is what’s coming after me, genealogy, foolish questions moving you away from the fundamental truth of Jesus Christ  )2 Timothy 4:3), and that is what came, and these things have taken us away from true religion, pure religion, undefiled and the faith in Jesus Christ. And has the church failed, yes miserably. And pastors, I laugh at them, we are busy, but busy doing what? My question is busy doing what? We are the communication between God and the sheep, so what are you busy doing? Are you fattening yourself up, or are you fattening the sheep.  What business are you in? What is the shepherd’s heart?  So, you now have the hirelings and all these differences in denominations.  The Lord spoke to me one day on my way to Walmart, and the Word of Lord, just came in the truck and He came to me in the form of a question, which was, the devil did to me, the same thing I did to him. Of course, I am thinking, I have really done lost it”.

During this encounter with the Lord, Apostle Woods, said with some humor, but was very serious about this glorious revelation, “I used to think I was crazy, but I know I am cause, I am hearing voices...for that was such an amazing statement.  But because it was the Word of the Lord, I knew the voice.  I was just shocked by the words. I said Lord, what do you mean”.  Apostle Woods elaborated on this very factuatl revelation from that Lord, by interpreting what the Lord was saying in this encounter, “the enemy could not stop Me, ever, for I beheld Satan  like lightening fall (Luke 10:18), so he got in the church, in men, and he did the same thing to Me with the church as I did to him at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) where I confounded the language and the people were divided. He has come into the church and confounded My Word and now my people, read the same Word, but there are divided interpretations. I never intended denominations to replace Me, it is all One Kingdom and a house or kingdom divided against itself shall not stand (Matthew 12:25). Even the devil himself is not divided, and even if I was casting out devils how can I cast out devils in the name of Beelzebub (Matthew 12:27)?  And I said to Him in the truck that day, Lord, help me to expose this”.  

Additionally, Apostle Woods went on to day “If you speak against certain denominations they take that more personally than if you had slapped them in the face, because their hearts and their minds are so in the authority that they have gained in being a part of that denomination, but when it comes down too, saying, In the Name of Jesus, they are powerless, they have gained the authoritative title, but do not have the authoritative tongue, to match because they left God and went after men.  This is where the Church has failed, but if they will go back to God, get rid of all them norms, where it is not even written, it’s just how they feel, what they think, what their father or mother taught them at home, there is no scriptural basis for it, but now it has become cultural norms. And right now, the devil is using denominations to keep people out of the Kingdom and that is why I have, to go. Six years ago, he gave me, Kingdom Saints United Fellowship because He knew this day would come. God is saying I no longer honor your pomp and circumstance, you honor me with your mouth, but your heart is far from me. You claim My Name, but there is no proof, you claim My Power but there is no proof, you say you are Mine, but there is no proof.

These things follow (Mark 16:17-18), we don't follow signs. No signs, no proof.  No love, no proof. No fairness, no proof, no forgiveness no proof. You have no proof that you are God's, you have no proof that you are Christ's. Now he is raising up all over this globe, people that he is transforming, by the renewing of their minds which makes us go back to the Bible and start reading some of that stuff we were told, only to find out they lied.   Let’s see what he really meant by that, only to find out they lied. So that is where the church has failed. You have a group or people that went to church all the time as a child but saw no power, and so, they don't see any advantage. It is easy for them to say, I went to church as a child almost every day, for what.  But I believe that as we line up with who we are in the Kingdom of God, they have no choice, because if they have been called and chosen by God they will come. It is written that they will come (Luke 13:29)”.
