People that have been wounded by church people are fleeing religion, church or anything organized for they were controlled, hurt, or rejected in that organization.
Escaping religion and religious institutions, even charismatic churches feels so freeing. The challenge is many of these people have become what they call themselves, “spiritual” and welcome everyone. They say, we are all on a journey, just because you call God by a different name doesn’t mean we aren’t pursuing the same God just by a different name.
Both religious and spiritual people are in the ditch. These two ditches keep many off of the path that leads to life. It can feel so freeing to be out from under the control, not knowing a new bondage is right there in that “freedom”.
When we flee one place we fall in another, because until we let the Holy Spirit through the word of God heal our broken hearts we will not see/hear the truth that can keep us free.
These two ditches are there to keep us from the Way, the Truth and the Life. God is raising up body builders who will bind up the broken hearted, set the captives free, give sight to the blind, open deaf ears and both the hurt who are fleeing and the hurt who are controlling will see the highway God is building. Then we will all see there is only one road that leads to life and that is JESUS the CHRIST!
Isaiah 62:10 “Pass through, pass through the gates, and go from old to new. Prepare a new path for the people. Build! Build up a highway for them to come to me! Remove every hindrance and unfurl a banner for the nations!”
Those who have been in hiding were being healed so they can build up the highway that leads to the HEALER. This is part of the new era!
