Eating with Hogs.. .. By: Jo Smith….. December 10“ 2018
Luke 15:; 11 And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12 and the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 and am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
There is much that can be said for the above passage but the thing I wish to get to is what happened to this man when the famine hit the land.
God said there would be a famine not for bread but for hearing the Words of the Lord. I suppose not many people would consider that to be any famine or of much consequence. They do not esteem the Word of God to be of any value. All they want is their little portion of the worldly goods. Now I am speaking totally spiritual here. So their little worldly goods means their little church services, their good standing among their friends, their popularity, and their entertainment.
The man in the parable took his portion of goods coming to him from his father and went into a FAR COUNTRY. Now we know that Jesus is referred to as taking a long journey into a far country.
And I could go that route in this message, and may before I finish, but right Now I wish to convey something that God spoke to me about last night.
This man went to the far country and there spent or wasted all that he had. So you take off from your beginning with God and you run into a far country = that church you dote so much on. Yes, this is what God is actually speaking of.
That church is the field that you are feeding hogs in. That church is actually the hog pen now. I know at one time, many years ago, church might have been a good place. But it is not now. It is that cage full of every hateful bird. It is that hog pen where you eat the slop with the hogs.
I know you will not like this, but truth is just something that church folks today hate. So be it. I still have to bring the messages to you that God gives me. I am not feeding you hog slop. I am feeding you on the greatest that heaven has to offer.
You have become sick eating with the hogs so you cannot hear the true message, hence, you are in the famine. You run to your ‘church’ but you do not get fed. So you starve and end up eating with hogs. You set up your xmess tree and decorate it and buy and put those presents under it and think you are having a glorious time. But your soul is starving to death.
The young man wasted all that he had, (paying that greedy preacher, buying those presents, and helping fancy up that building, etc)… . At the end of the day, he had forgotten how to pray and get in touch with God. He had lost his faith in the gifts of the Holy Ghost. He has lost the ability to dance in the Spirit and rejoice till his cup runs over. He is now destitute. He is now in prison to this greed spirit of his hired preacher, who sent him out to feed the hogs.
That paid preacher has no manna from heaven to feed any sheep of God that are there. So they eat the hog slop that the man feeds them. That hireling then sets up easter egg hunts in the church, puts on halloween plays and trunk or treats, and they have a laughing time, but their soul is starving.
He found himself starving and would have eaten the husks fed to the hogs. He listens to the lies Sunday after Sunday, and wonders, why am I starving? I am being faithful to this prison, (opps meant church). I work in the field but I am starving. They sent me to feed the pigs and I am so hungry I eat with the pigs.
Notice, when this starving man joined himself to a certain place, they sent him to feed swine. He was so hungry but no man gave anything to him. See he runs to that church week after week, but no one is giving him anything. He hears all kinds of rumbling, but none of it feeds his soul for it is not taken from the only source of heavenly food, the King James Scripture.
They take it from baptist sunday school literature, or branham’s books, or pike’s books, or methodist headquarters books, etc. But it is still starving this man’s soul. He is not being fed anything that can nourish his soul and bring him back to health.
The ‘owner’ of that place has everyone there so intimidated that no one would dare offer this starving man any real food even if they found some.
They feed this man fairy-tales, santa, ball games, singings, just anything but nourishing FOOD.
He has now found Facebook and seeks to that for prophecies, admonition, prayers, and uplifting praise. But it is even more HOG SLOP.
He has now become so weak and sickly he will not even recognize real food when he hears it, or smells it, hence, he refuses to eat and is sick nigh unto death.
God called his people to COME OUT OF HER…. do you not ever try to find out who the HER is? Don’t you know it is very important? He said if you partake of HER SINS, you are going to partake of her PLAGUES. So you truly need to find out who SHE IS.
I will tell you because God spoke to me one night, not long after Bucky died, God spoke to me and told me SHE IS THE CHURCH.
Now you can deny this all you wish, but it is the truth. There is not one church out there today that has ANY TRUTH. They are feeding you HOG SLOP.
You are eating with hogs.
Oh I know you cannot see it. Some of you think that because you still enjoy that a little bit that makes it right. but not so. God said you must GROW. GROW IN KNOWLEDGE.
But you have not grown one tiny bit in 60 years. You still do not know one thing today that you did not think was good food sixty years ago. So you did not GROW. If a newborn baby is never fed, it will not grow. You have not been fed. You are still eating those hog husks.
You think nothing about keeping all the idol holidays. You think nothing about lying about others and gossiping about them. Some of you can steal, cheat and all kinds of evil and still believe you are a Christian. You have been blinded and fed hog slop till you are too sick to know anything about truth.
But for the man in our story, he had a good turn. I can only hope some of you also COME TO YOURSELVES.
He came to himself and realized “hey my Father’s servants have plenty of food and I am here in a hog pen starving to death’. How foolish I was. I will arise and return to my Father and ask him to make me one of his hired servants. Then I can eat.
I am not going to finish the story for you know how it ends and that is not my message. My message is COME OUT OF HER AND STOP EATING WITH HOGS.
