Ministry Director Monique Lampkin states that, “in 2012 we taught the participants in the class how to find a church home; in this New Year we will teach the public how to find a holy church home because there is a difference in the two types of churches. The participants will learn based on Holy Scripture, leading of the Holy Spirit and practical application what factors one should consider when looking for a place of worship. Holy Scripture states “Be holy for I am holy” I Peter 1:16, which is the charge to the Body of Christ in this hour.” “Due to numerous appeals and requests from the general public; the spirit of the Lord has led our ministry to do the teaching again. Initially when we completed teaching the class last year I assumed the ministry would not host the class ever again. However we are constantly asked to reteach the course and when will it be held again?” “Since the public; our followers, supporters and in general are stakeholders in the ministry of God we have heard their demands and harkened to the need because we simply care about the souls of the people. “
Lampkin is advising and suggesting to pastors especially in America to have weekly Corporate Intercessory Prayer two times a week which is minimal. Next eliminate activities and events that have no impact. In addition they may want to consider having night services on Sunday Nights due to the adverse critical state the Body of Christ is in currently regardless of denominations. This may be perceived as an inconvience to many or not necessary, however in this hour the “candle of the Lord” (holy fire) needs to be on at all times in your local church. This is accomplished by prayer, fasting, receiving biblical truths and living holy unto God.
Several churches are no longer a safe place. People are being assaulted, killed and endangered on an all time high in the house of God. This should not be happening, Lampkin states, she constantly receives calls from people on issues they are experiencing in churches. In addition she is aware of the many issues pastors face with their congregation (members) which range from anger, disobedience, rebellion, slothfulness, and lack of love to name a few. In addition these types of diabolical acts are from satan since we are in spiritual warfare according to Ephesians 6:10-18. Until the soul issues of the people are dealt with by the power of God we will continue to see these deviant behaviours.
Many churches that were not ordained by God regardless of the denomination will be shutting down in the seasons and years to come as the spirit of the living God will literally close the doors and they will no longer be open for business. We will see churches we thought based on our own (fleshly) perceptions that would remain open forever no longer exist regardless of their sizes whether large or small because the foundation was never built on Jesus Christ or they became apostate due to error.
Finally persons who are wounded and traumatized from a church due to spiritual abuse Lampkin will be praying for them personally, recommending further counsel from qualified referrals to minister healing and deliverance on a professional and spiritual level after the class. Also there will be a period of repentance for all of the sin and iniquity which has occurred in the house of God called “abominations.”
