Old Time Religion

Today I attended The Sister In Strength Bible Study. This is a bible study that we have every 3rd Saturday of the month. This month it was held on the 4Th Saturday because of plans other women had. Anyway as we were in our circle having intercessory prayer,God put the song In Times Like These in my spirit. As I sang the song all the other women joined in. God has placed these old hymns in my spirit for a reason.

He has told me that it is time that the Churches go back to conducting Church the way it was meant to be done. We have become some commercial wise in how we conduct Church.

I had sometime when I returned home to think back as far as I could remember when I would visit my Grandmother in Claremore,Oklahoma. Now my Grandmother was a Baptist,I can remember watching the Deacons sitting in front of the pulpit and singing without any music. I can remember looking at them and wondering are they sick or something,cause it just sounded like they were moaning.

If you take the time to think back then some 40 or so years,the world was nothing like it is now. Why? cause back then the Christians knew who God was,and they lived their lives just as the Bible said. There was no deviating any word that God had spoken. People back then feared God.

So ladies it is time we put that Old Time Religion back into our churches. There is nothing wrong with the new gospel songs,to me its just that the old hymns marinates your spirit

  2. I'm not sure that any generation has had it right. Isn't that why we are reminded over and over about the Israelites? Are we any different? We want to be, we long to be, we hunger to be.....Come Lord Jesus.
