Lukewarm Christianity Is Sickening

The Year 2020 Has Exposed Lukewarm Christianity At Its Finest

Well, if you didn’t know what lukewarm Christianity was before, now you know, thanks to the trials of 2020!

I can’t count the number of times I’ve read the passage in the Book of Revelation that says, “Because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth” (Rev. 3:16). But the observation of this year hit me like a ton of bricks when I realized the severity of how infested lukewarm Christianity has become.

Lukewarm Christianity

Around three years ago, the Lord gave me a hard-hitting dream that made me cognizant of what would begin to occur. With it, He said, “I will begin to make it evident who is truly for Me and who is not!” What a bone-chilling moment!

Then, the Lord told me to tell the people what He had conveyed to me, so I did. I told almost everyone with who I conversed. Many people (Christian and non) listened and took heed, but I noticed, to my dismay, those who became uncomfortable with it or rebuked it, were those who had some sort of ministerial title. I figured, it must have hit home for them.

Fast-forward three years later, the Coronavirus rared its ugly head, political candidates expose their policies, and the faith of every Christian soul around planet earth is tested. Ahhh…so this was a speck of what God was talking about! Here’s what happened:

Christians Refused to Go to Church

Christians refused to go to church out of fear (are you kidding me?!) The last time I checked the Word of God, when pestilence came about, God’s children were ordered to heal the sick and cast it down, not hide from it! What happened here? Here’s the answer: The fearful ones made the mainstream media their god and became slaves to their deceptive strongholds.

God specifically tells us not to give up nor neglect assembling with other believers (Heb. 10:25). Doing so is living in disobedience and rebellion. God compares rebellion to witchcraft! (1 Samuel 15:23)

Fear is a tool of the devil! So how on earth can you operate with the spirit of God utilizing satan’s devices? You can’t! Lukewarm Christianity at it’s finest.

A lack of knowledge of one’s identity in Christ is also a root cause of this nonsense behavior. My next book will focus on this matter and help grasp the knowledge of your identity in Christ. Having knowledge of it is a weapon in of itself to the enemy.

Love For Many Have Waxed Cold

Lukewarm Christianity

Our oldest daughter runs cross-country, and during her last meet, she collapsed to the ground due to altitude sickness and began gasping for air in pain. With approximately 12 observers on the sideline, around 10 feet away, not one bystander came to her aid! No one! Why? Because of fear. I’m pretty sure a few standing by were believers.

Did I get angry? No. Why? Because I’m a child of God and I gave my children up to the Lord years ago, therefore; I trust Him to protect them (especially when we can’t). And He did! It wasn’t until moments before that a parent of one of her friend’s asked us to meet them at one of the sidelines for directions. On the way up, we passed our daughter and found her hanging on a wooden fence for relief. Medics came to help her moments later.

A young mother at our church also mentioned that adults (especially) the elderly no longer stop her in public or the grocery store to tell her how cute and adorable her baby daughter is due to fear. She mentioned how that sort of broke her heart. Little specks of love goes a long way, but the god of self and fear is causing kind acts of endearment to subside. Is this excusable? Absolutely not!

Corrupted Hearts of the Church Were Exposed (PUBLICLY)

Here’s what I like to say when things really get me ticking: “Oy vey!” (No, I’m not Jewish, but my Jesus is, so…) The whole world watched the US Presidential Election. Why? Because the future of the world rides on it! And the truth of that matter is, this election truly wasn’t red or blue, Republican or Democrat, or neither Trump nor Biden, it was about good vs. evil. Light vs. dark.

Both sides presented their policies: One side was for protecting the life of the unborn, religious freedom, freedom of speech, economic prosperity, and extremely pro-Israel. The other side was for the murder of the unborn (even after birth) aka. hands that shed innocent blood, the abolishing of religious freedom and free speech, economic socialism, and very anti-Israel (and we know what God says about lands that bless or curse Israel).

It was that simple! Good vs. Evil. Laid flat in front of our faces for all to see! No one was without excuse. I guess the question for Christians was: “Do you love God more?” So many “so-called Christians” answered with their vote, which was a proud, “No!” Why do I say proud? Because these people blasted and defended their actions publically on social media, with peers and church communities.

Wait! But didn’t Jesus say, “If you love Me, keep my commandments”? He most definitely did! This means you can’t love God and consciously rebel against His commandments. Nor can you be after His heart and vote for abortion. That’s called lukewarm Christianity at it’s finest!

These people chose a “façade personality” over the heart of God. This election wasn’t about who we voted for but what we voted for.

Think about your most favorite and/or admired person in the Bible—unless you chose someone in the lines of Jezebel, Ahab, Judas, or King Herod, none of them would have placed a vote for the murder of children. Oh, but they say, “It really doesn’t mean anything…it’s just a vote.” It may mean absolutely nothing to them, but it means everything to satan, and he will use it against them in the Courts of Heaven.

I Saw God Last Night

Being lukewarm is a disgusting thing, which is why Jesus says He will vomit such people out of His mouth. He takes it very seriously! It’s comparable to spiritual treason. Lukewarm Christianity is a result of losing or never have gained the fear of God. Do they really believe they’ll be exempt from Judgement Day? Do they believe it won’t happen to them? It will!

I have to admit, I was angry when I saw the mass amount of “Christians” who I once admired, looked up to, or just saw as a brother or sister in Christ, break the heart of God. I was disgusted to the highest degree, and for the first time, I fully understood Jesus when He said, “Because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth!”

The first four days after the election, Christians from all over the world reached out to me, many of whom I don’t even know, telling me that they are praying for our country! This was like a hug to my soul.

But get this—many of them were from third-world countries! So here we have wonderful believers from some of the most impoverished nations in the world, praying for America, the most prosperous nation in the world! The world knows the United States is spiritually sick, especially those who claim to be about Jesus.

Live the life or don’t! No one can play the fence without getting a “side-eye”. Who chooses to be a Gomer? Who chooses to be a harlot bride without conviction?

So, corrupted hearts of the church were exposed merely by opening their mouths (Luke 6:45), but where do we go from here? Can lukewarm Christianity be fixed? Of course. We must pray conviction for such people as well as their salvation.

I’ll never forget the words 12-year-old Jesus said to His mother when she went looking for Him. He said, “Did you not know that I must be about my Father’s business?” (Luke 2:49). These are words I live by. Family and friends may shun you and the world may persecute you, but that all means nothing when we’re in the will of our Father. Life is like a vapor and our reward is in heaven!

  1. Amen! We need to stop living in fear – “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) But the only way to have a sound mind and live a life full of power and love is if we get into God’s Holy Word. We can’t just keep playing a game by acting one way on Sundays and then being completely different the rest of the week. I loved this post!

  2. Blunt truth, Jennifer! At the heart of my writing is the desire to wake up Christian women who have slipped into that lukewarm status, in addition to reaching women who don’t know God as a Father. Keep sharing your message!

  3. Christians have relied too long on politics. Politics will always betray us sooner or later. The lukewarm church you mentioned was Laodicea. The church that was not criticized but only praised was Smyrna. It was the church that was persecuted. We need to be diligent that the church takes responsibility for our decadent culture and the cleansing of the church will follow.

  4. The church that was condemned was Laodicea because they were “comfortable”. The church that was praised was Smyrna because they were “persecuted”. I don’t believe churches should be relying on politics which shifts like the wind. We need to make sure our churches do what they are deigned for and that is to reach lost souls and the culture. And we’re also fortunate that we can longer wait for strangers to just show up at the church door, but that we need to seek them out within the culture.

  5. Thank you for taking the time to write about this topic. It has been on my mind for quite a while, and it is refreshing to see someone else thinking about and comparing it to today’s times.

  6. You are speaking the truth! This year has definitely revealing our hearts. We have to constantly examine ourselves and make sure we are on the right side! Thank you for writing this, is was certainly an indictment to believers✨

  7. I agree! There are lukewarm Christians, that are confused on their path in life.
    I, myself am not religious per se, but do believe in God and Christ. I KNOW they exist, because of my experiences in life.
    God is very patient, and gives people plenty of time to realize their wrongs and come to him for forgiveness. He’s actually very open minded and loving, but it seems some ppl are stubborn towards the Lord—not wanting to repent.
    I personally think something catastrophic is underway to bring ppl together and come to him, so he can sages some light.
    I really don’t have a political affiliation, but I don’t agree with abortion. I just feel it’s wrong.

  8. Well, that was long, elaborate and full of Truths. Your knowledge of what you wrote about was deep and wide. We surely are living in the last days and soon, the Alpha and Omega will come back to take Himself a people that He purchased by His precious blood in Calvary. Thank you sister, with an interesting name and may the Almighty God bless you abundantly and keep you

  9. Love this! I recently wrote something similar and it’s no coincidence that the Holy Spirit is sharing the very same message with God’s true church of believers. I’m glad to have found your blog.

  10. While I optimistically look forward to Jesus coming back and Father protecting His own until then, it strikes me that our nation is in a downward spiral similar to Israel before the Babylonian captivity; this is the primary prophetic theme of the OT prophets.
    Our ideological divide is not likely to decrease, but as Christ-followers die off, fewer are being inducted into faith in Jesus, and the divide between those who love their enemies and those enemies will widen, resulting in increasing social and cultural hostility to those who DO believe.
    We are all children of God, and the difference in melanin that accounts for our skin color is less that the difference between red heads and blonds (or brunettes 😉 ).
    Some seem to think we are “all headed in the same direction?” Sadly, no. Check out The Great Divorce by C.S.Lewis to see some insights into why some will refuse Heaven, even when offered clearly. John 9:41 notes that some who claim to see are blind, and their guilt will remain, a sad theme of your blog.
    BUT our job is to continue to reason, guide, prophetically speak the truth and LOVE even our enemies until God brings true justice to the world. NO one is going to like that! Even those of us who are spared because of our faith, hope and love will only be able to be thankful that He is merciful to those who believe.
    Justice will not bring peace to any of us; it will bring justice.
    Thanx for your insightful blog! Keep preaching!
    love and prayers, c.a.

  11. Hi Jennifer, I just want to say I appreciate what you’re writing and that you are mentioning and celebrating God. (Hello from sunny South Australia). Susan.

  12. Hi Jennifer, you liked my post so I thought I’d stop by and see your blog. Great article! I find myself concerned over the church that seems to be growing apathetic. You referenced Hebrews 10:25. I believe that verse speaks about our current situation. It says to not give up meeting together, but all the more as you see the day approaching. The closer to the Lord’s return, the more difficult it will be to meet together. Thanks for speaking the truth!

  13. Hi Jennifer, as I read the post one song came to mind.
    “Words of life, words of hope,
    give us strength, help us cope
    In this world, we’in we roam
    Ancient words will guide us home…”

    Thank you for redirecting my mind towards God’s Word.
    Stay blessed with LOVE.

  14. Thant made me think of something I wrote a while back:

    What is hidden will be revealed
    30th January 2005

    I had a prophetic dream. As is usual with dreams, upon wakening I could not quite grasp the essence of what I had dreamt.

    Considering the reality of what I had been given, the Lord gave me a reference point to be able to anchor the dream and understand it.

    I saw the Holy Spirit, brooding over the earth and the seas covering it. I perceived His plans for us. I saw Him dry up all the seas, and as this was done, what was hidden under the seas was revealed – mountains, valleys, plains and trenches.

    My understanding was that the seas represented the Lord’s grace in the natural – that is, his physical provision for us. I saw that He will dry up this provision, and in doing so reveal the hidden natures of our hearts – both the highest heights, and the lowest depths.

    I saw that this water – the Lord’s grace in the supernatural – would still be available as a source to be drawn upon by those who are based and grounded in the Lord.

    What will this mean, and how extensive will it be? I do not know. Only that a time of natural adversity with supernatural blessing will occur, with the intent of revealing what has been hidden under the Seas of Plenty for many years. Both the best and the worst will be laid bare for all to see.

  15. This was very well written and contained my sentiments as well. Good vs evil, indeed! God will win in the end. We can rest in His promises. Thanks for writing and may the Lord bless and keep you safe in His sheltering arms! My name is Donna and it is very nice to meet you.

  16. Jennifer — Thank you for your passionate writing on the side of good as opposed to the side of evil. (Also, thank you for introducing yourself to me by “liking” my recent blog post on a stolen election and the Christian’s response.) The body of Christ is split as some of us favor the policies of the present administration and some, equally passionate, oppose the administration because of the President’s temperament. Babies lives are at stake, so I’ll take their lives over a mean tweet. God bless you!

  17. I had stopped attending church prior to the COVID crisis, mainly because the churches in my area have become entirely too worldly. Since then, they’ve only served to cement my opinion of their weakness, as they all shut down and moved their services online. I will give credit where it’s due, some of our churches moved their services online and then immediately expanded their social efforts including their food banks. However, as man doesn’t live by bread alone, this only accomplishes so much.

    I’m also a member of my state’s National Guard, and have been working in one area of COVID response or another since May. This has kept me traveling constantly, with me unable to locate any churches on my area on Sunday morning. I rely primarily on sermons preached on sites like YouTube to keep fed, in addition to my own research. One has to make due, and I will not be denied the opportunity to worship the Lord, even if too many others are too afraid to stand close to the fire. Keep up the good work, Sis.
