I also had a dream last year about Delilah and the Church, in which I heard the words, “The Church is lying in the lap of Delilah, being pacified to sleep, so she can steal its strength.” (Daryl)
The quotes below, from article above, express what I have been urgently crying out much, recently.
“The ‘happy church’ soothe your guilt-ridden emotions. And they’ll do whatever they can to keep you coming back for more.
This is the church who is flirting with Delilah. If they stay there too long, their conscience will be seared, and they will be prime targets for deception and destruction. They won’t be able to shake themselves free because they won’t know that the anointing has departed from them.
Delilah bewitched Samson. Popular voices and popular concepts are bewitching today’s church.
“O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth? … Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?” (Gal. 3:1, 3).
Just as there are evil alliances in the world, so there are in the church. Both are subtle. Both are demonic. We wrestle not against flesh and blood. They are seducing spirits promoting doctrines of demons. It’s rampant and worse than you think. Nice people who have been deceived are engaged and involved in these unholy alliances.
(A false, inaccurate, or in complete gospel will)…inocul(ate) your own people against the real Jesus, the real gospel, and the real salvation.
If you’re in a happy church where the cross, the blood and hell are never preached, where there’s no real power to redeem from sin, and no warnings are ever given, you might be flirting with Delilah.”
As the author said, it is more serious than we may think!
“Then he (Samson) awakened from his sleep and thought, “I will go out as before and shake myself free of them.” He did not know that the Lord had left him. (Judge. 16:19-20)
The seducing Delilah enemy is about to fall upon many slumbering, many pacified, many half awake, many dazed, many inoculated, many conscience numbed, many spiritually inebriated, spiritually high on a false euphoria, many deceived by seducing spirits, (all false idols!), not knowing that the Lord has departed from them!
Let all who still have eyes that see, and ears that hear, and hearts that perceive, cry aloud, to awaken the slumbering, paralyzed, church before it’s to late! It will be to late for some, because they will not listen!
I’m saying, along with many others, there are segments of the Church that are in Delilah’s lap. These are the ones that must be awakened.
“So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” 1 Thess.5:1-3
