Who Told You To Go Back To Church?
By Patricia Womack Elston
I was torn on writing about this subject, it is something completely out the box.
I remember almost a year ago when COVID entered our lives. We were shut in, we were scared to go outdoors, children were attending school online, parents who were non essential worked from home if they still had a job, essential employees were showing up to their jobs, transportation was shut down and churches were closed.
Hold on did she just say churches were closed. Churches can’t close, how will the people get the message that GOD had given the pastor for them. How are we going to survive without going into the church? Don’t worry people, you can come to church. If you have faith as small as a mustard seed then don’t worry about COVID and make sure you bring your tithes and offerings each week.
However, keep in mind that you were paying your tithes and offerings for years and the message was bring your tithes to the store house. Don’t forget your vows or your seed for harvest in the beginning of the year. No matter what, make sure you take care of your tithes and have faith that the father will supply all your needs.
You know you don’t have enough funds to cover your bills, so just pay your tithes and yes pay for that prayer and don’t worry you will have money overflowing in your bank account and mailbox. Put your money to work for you. Put your money on assignment when you offer it up. Oh baby no you can’t deduct those offerings on your taxes, that was freely given and not part of your taxes.
Oh my prayers were answered, the Churches are able to reopen and they have been holding services online and I am able to contribute my money. Now wait a minute wasn’t the father able to speak to me without me being in the church. YES and clearly. I miss seeing my people so I am going to the church. It’s ok, it’s a small congregation. We don’t need to wear our masks, we are 6 feet apart. Hold on….
Wait a minute. What happened? No this can’t be happening. No way did this attack my body. How? GOD what’s going on. Excuse me did you just call my name. GOD why? Hold on I don’t recall you calling my name and asking me if you should go back into the church? I thought it was okay this was his only outlet. Now you are calling on JESUS and upset.
Yes I am upset. How did he get COVID? Where did he go? Only CHURCH. Damn. Now I have to call around and let the people know to get checked. Oh this is the madness, it started from the top and came down. They were careless and didn’t care about the congregation and now the majority of the people are affected.
Mom praying YAH please let this not touch my son. I understand that I am his teacher and we can do services amongst ourselves. He need not go back into the church. No more manipulation and control. You spared him and I know you spared him because all others tested positive.
This could have gone so different….DID YOU GET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER?
