Has the Glory of God Left the Church?
Before the next church service gets started…
Should it read, on the door;
“God's glory has departed? “
Many come to worship and don't even know.
That's God's glory left such
a long time ago.
Many build their Sunday experience
on “past traditions.”
Built on man-made rules and “false expectations.”
They don't want to hear the gospel of holiness!
”It may offend.”
Their pastor no long preaches
on what the Bible says is sin.
Some have been going to
church for many years.
Still looking for teachers with “itching ears.”
Is the true presence of God
is no longer there?
It's no longer found in their
worship or prayer.
God's judgment shall begin at this very place.
It hasn't happened yet, because of
his unfailing grace.
If God's presence has been left from your life as well,
Remember his love for you will, never fail.
Seek his awesome presence each day you live!
He gave his son for you!
What more could he give?
Won’t you see his glory this very hour?
And be renewed by his word
and life-changing power!
