SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOES FORTH ... FROM MY MOUTH, IT
SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME VOID BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN
THE THING FOR WHICH ... I SENT IT ..........................ISAIAH 55:11.
|It is either He is Lord or we are Lord and as far as I can
see, in the church structures today, the latter is more applicable.
Isaiah the prophet tells us it is His word and it shall accomplish His purposes, this is
the complete opposite to the word of faith teaching that many hold fast to in hope of
grandeur. Tommy Tenny, the author of the book .. The God Chasers .. said in his book
ARE YOU TIRED OF HANDING OUT TRACTS, KNOCKING ON
DOORS AND GETTING NOWHERE?
This is the attitude of one of the highly recommended ministers in our world today and
Jesus word is fulfilled once again .. many shall fall away from the faith. The
getting nowhere syndrome, is easily identified by lack of real faith in the Christ, an
enormous hunger for recognition and acceptance, lack of humility, patience and
perseverance. There are other defects but these are usually the most obvious and most
common........ ...................... 2 Timothy 4:3,4.

The getting nowhere syndrome is one of the most fatal diseases that we face in
the Church today. Who are its carriers?.. the so called leaders and mentors on the church

The falling away from the faith is none other than people esteeming their
tactics, theories, skills, networking abilities, man pleasing doctrines and stage
performances of greater worth and effectiveness than the simple living unadulterated word
of God/Jesus of Nazareth...... ............. 1 Peter 1:24,25.
The only time you are not .. getting anywhere, as they say .. is when you live for self,
the world and Jesus is your sugar daddy and not your God and Master.
Isaiah the prophet says that when the word of God goes out it shall fulfil His plans not
ours.. He is in control, we are His servants, friends. sheep, peoples, ministers in one
way or another.. He is the potter we are the
Now I know why Mr Tenney thinks as he does he hasn't found God, he's still chasing Him. My
bible says, Jesus the great Pastor came to seek us/the lost, find us and save us from the
wrath to come. Since He/Jesus found this grateful leper, I have been healed from the ..
getting nowhere syndrome, for eternity. No longer do I conform with this world, I am in
Christ, complete in Him/my God.
When your really going somewhere and getting somewhere your dead to self and alive to
Christs commands, His word is your food, His will
your delight. Amen.
