Overview

In the last day, the church will be a “whore church” made up of people who have been trapped in offenses for years but who have never repented and received God’s grace.
Matthew 24:10–12 says, “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

Offenses seem to be a sign of the coming of the Lord. In overwhelming numbers, Christians today are offended for one reason or another. God can’t use an offended person. The church is filled with offended people who have been rendered useless. The progression of offense is:

1. Offense
2. Betrayal
3. Hatred
4. Deception by false prophets (usually those offended)
5. Love waxed cold

Offense is Satan’s choice of weapon during the twenty-first century. Once you’re offended, Satan has the advantage over you, unless you become offense-proof. Our churches must become a place where people from all walks of life can feel welcome. No longer can churches allow denominational barriers and doctrinal dogmas to separate people. Our churches must become offense-free zones if we are to do the work of true ministry.
