Many Churches Are In Trouble!

Many Churches Are In Trouble!


Many in church can entertain, but don’t

 take time to pray.

Quite often, they dishonor God by

what they do and say.


They’re often caught “unguarded,” by sin entering the door.

They think that “socializing” is what

church is really for.


The pastor often doesn’t preach holiness

from God’s word.

A message of compromise and “love

,” is what’s often heard.


Perhaps a sign should be hung,;

“Ichabod, the glory’s departed.”

This should be displayed before

the service is even started.


Too many people come in and leave

and are not changed.

They come with ungodly addictions

with much sin and shame.


It’s no wonder why so many churches are

driven “way off course.”

They’re often being directed with an ungodly sinful force.


It’s time for churches in America to wake up

to God’s holy call!

We better do it now!  Living a life of repentance

is worth it all!


It’s time we stop playing games and come

 in repentance and sorrow.

We should do it now!  We may not have

 much time or tomorrow!


Let’s come all across America before God

and pray before his throne.

Let’s invite Jesus to be the lord of our families,

hearts and homes!


Judgment shall begin at the house of God! 

Do you really believe this?

With the spiritual decay in many churches

, will Jesus truly receive us?


Many churches are in trouble! 

Living 100% for Jesus

 is the only key!

Let’s come in Holy Ghost prayer now,

 and receive a Godly victory!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
