The Greater Body of Christ in the world is not dead. However, this Pastor is correct in terms of America. Brave man. Many will say that it is sick, divided and powerless but few will call it as it is. Judgment first begins with the house of God. The American church has been blessed and has had many years to repent and return to it's First Love. We have been warned repeatedly. We are not united in one mind and Spirit. The church is not a building it is people and people without life and power - THE SPIRIT are DEAD. Read the seven letters to the churches in Revelation 2,3.
What Jesus pronounces to be dead is dead. The sleeping and sickness can only last for so long until judgment comes. Right now - all the churches throughout the world are being judged and A Bride is being called out - to them who have ears to hear and obey. You can prop up, perfume and decorate it but the institutional church as we know it is DEAD.
Then I heard another voice calling from heaven, "Come away from her, my people. Do not take part in her sins, or you will be punished with her. Revelation 18:4
