“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors — not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of Adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs — heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.” Romans 8:12-17 NKJV.
The assault on The Church has been to make sure the religious denominations only give enough Truth to appease their flesh and to keep them lukewarm.
The demonic behind the scenes have said, “We must not let them begin to question! So, continue twisting the web of deceit because we must meet the social agenda, to entertain the people so they keep making money, so they will come back to give to us!”
The Vatican, and various other Church buildings with stained glass windows, steeples, with art, sounding bells, and spiraling Ivory towers of achievement, are so well educated in their PhDs that they have been educated right out of the Truth, into deception!
God has always wanted to be First.
God has always wanted to personally teach us, and God wanted to be God!
But man had to be like the others, and not believe in ignorant fairy tales.
Religious denominations say that those who are not properly educated are ignorant of God’s ways!
True believers in Christ, conform to Christ and His Teachings. But religious denominationisms do not pattern themselves by ALL of God’s Holy Word!
The Word of God, The Holy Bible, is our ONLY FINAL STANDARD. We measure ourselves against and live by! The Scriptures are NOT anyone’s private interpretation!
Heaven and earth will pass away but His Word will never pass away!
“But understand this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of or comes from one’s own [personal or special] interpretation,” 2 Peter 1:20 KJV.
Religious, and Denominationalism are full of demon inspired leaders AND angels of light that are twisted with mixture of truth and error, and you cannot mix oil and water!
The Religious Denominations are filled with dead men’s bones and spew curses, as they are allied and be punished with all those who killed God’s prophets!
Remember when Jesus called the religious leaders, vipers? They owned their version of the Torah and Temple, and changed it into a money-making business!
Jesus confronted the religious leaders who thought they knew the Scriptures. The Scriptures testify of Christ and yet they could not see Who He was!
The demons knew, but could not know God’s Plan, for God had not yet played out His trump card. Had the principalities and powers known what would happen, they would have never killed The LORD of Glory!
“We speak of the mysterious and hidden wisdom of God, which He destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it. For if they had, they would not have crucified The LORD of Glory.” 1 Corinthians 2:7 KJV
There is a showdown coming!
The religious and denominationalism, gnashes their teeth, the bite and spew, releasing their demonic venom through their teachings of mixture, of truth and error.
You cannot mix light and darkness, for darkness flees when light comes, and neither can they mix oil and water, it cannot be done. They are deceived, and they deceive others! If the blind lead the blind, they will all fall in the ditch!
“The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth,” Psalm 37:12 NKJV.
The Church Is Not a Building and the Temple Is Not a Building!
The true Believer in Christ, has The Holy Spirit within, and He lives on the throne of their hearts!
A true Temple/ Church is the believer in Christ, who lives a daily life in Relationship and Fellowship with Jesus!
The evidence of a true believer and follower of Christ is NOT going to an altar and confessing sin and then living with no evidence of a changed life!
To make a confession of receiving Christ and saying that they are a believer, and saved, isn’t the evidence.
If we, or they are continuing on in the consistency of a sin filled life, they are liars, and the truth is not in them! Believers in Christ die to the flesh so that they rise in the newness of life.
“Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.” 1 John 2:3-6 KJV.
“And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.” 1 John 2:28-29 KJV.
Religious denominational organizations are twisted! (The devil knows the scriptures very well and twists it to support his demonic agenda, because the demons are in authority.)
The demonic, organizational religious denominations do not serve The LORD of Glory! These are in agreement with demons and are whited tombs with dead men’s bones, and are literally, dead men walking!
The sixth woe Christ pronounces upon these leaders for their religious hypocrisy. This time, Christ compares the scribes and Pharisees to whitewashed tombs full of “dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.”
Jesus purposely, and willingly, provoked a reaction, to show the actions of the religious system in an offensive way ! It was a planned confrontation and HE judged righteously! (Study Matthew 23)
It is true practice today, that is meant to uncover demonic Religious Organizations, and their Leaders and their man made teachings and doctrines of devils, found in many popular teachings today. In Mosaic law, touching a dead body was among the most defiling acts recorded. (Study Numbers 19)
Jesus is declaring that the Religious Scribes and Pharisees are the most defiled people in Israel. And it is true today!
Among the Religious Denominations, are the walking dead! Yes, touching a dead body is what Jesus was doing when He confronted the religious of His day.
There is a further meaning that he wants to say today! The LORD JESUS is sending out WARNINGS to AWAKEN AND REVIVE THE DEAD!
We, the true believers in Christ are supposed to lay hands on the dead and they will recover, literally and Spiritually!
He does not want us to touch, be among or conform to the dead, dry, religious systems and organizations of today!
Why? Because mixture of truth and error will lull you to sleep and, it not intervened, can cause many to be lulled into apathy, and complacency, and into the sleep of death.
Truly, there are many walking dead, in expensive buildings and church houses that deny the power, and from such we must turn away! RUN, RUN, RUN! (Study Psalm 13:3)
Understand me clearly! There is NO compromise!
We, the true believers in Christ, measure everything according to the purity of scripture! Not some twisted compromise!
Another sign of False Religious Organizations is, they do not want to be corrected! Especially they don’t want to hear true God ordained Prophets. Like when King Ahab met Elijah on the road, and the King said to Elijah, “Have you come to trouble Israel?”
“And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of The LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.” 1 Kings 18:17-18 KJV
These False Religious Organizational people say, “Do not judge me.” You know why? Because they love their sin and want to shut you up!
You better judge you, or you will be judged! We judge by the Spirit of God with righteous judgment. Judgement must first come to the house of God!
If you consider yourselves to be a believer in Christ, then you are being built as lively stones in His house! And Judgment must come to us, for we are HIS house. Do not deny the knock at the door of your heart!
“And the Jews marveled, saying, “How does this Man know letters, having never studied?” Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.”” John 7:15-18 KJV.
“But if we evaluated and judged ourselves honestly [recognizing our shortcomings and correcting our behavior], we would not be judged.” 1 Corinthians 11:31 AMP.
The Spirit will bear witness with our Spirit that we are children of God! Do we see fruits? Do they line up with the fruit of the Spirit?
True believers who seek God, know The Word and The Word becomes flesh in them! We must die to the flesh and sin, to truly live!
I am challenging you, reader, to begin to watch and look for fruits and ALL the Words of Jesus.
Are these people you go to church with, do they have good fruit and are they striving daily to die to sin? Or are these false and live their lives to pleasures and fleshly appetite’s? Paul said it well, “I die daily!”
“I assure you, believers, by the pride which I have in you in [your union with] Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily [I face death and die to self].” 1 Corinthians 15:31 AMP.
These Organizational Denominations and some spirit filled religions with mixture rarely, speak of death to self and picking up our cross and following Jesus!
They say, it’s too hard! And God doesn’t require all that! I would challenge anyone with that argument, to search the scriptures and not the false denominational teachings.
I must also WARN too, that you must question the teachings and doctrines of spirit filled church houses, as we must seek God as to what spirit is speaking! Satan is a mass deceiver, and comes as an angel of light and he knows how to conjure up good feelings.
It is shocking for me to see how most that go to religious denominational churches, ever go home and find what the preacher spoke about; and don’t get me started on Sunday School indoctrination with quarterlies!
Bottom line, are these in alliance with Christ and HIS Word? All throughout history, these religious organizations and denominations, killed the prophets that God sent to them!
The Scriptures clearly state to us that there is a heavy WARNING! Are you one of them?
“Having a form of godliness but denying its power? If we are, the scripture is so clear, “And from such people turn away!!!! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.” 2 Timothy 3:5-9 KJV.
Beloved of God, and those who read this and are convicted!
There is no other way!
Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life, and no one comes to The Father but by Him.
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” John 14:6 KJV.
Suddenly, I heard a denominational religious demon say loudly and shrieking!
“They’re out there! They’re coming! They see us!
We must continue to blow mixture, so they will continue to slumber in their midst! You MUST continue to distract them, so that they will not upset the peace filled harmony of the lukewarm, and cold that sleep!”
The demons continue to say,
“We have legal ground! They ate of the fruit of deceit, and now, we must by all means, maintain all the ground gained throughout the centuries! But they’re out there!”
The demons continued saying,
“They are coming, and we have seen and heard their words to God! He is mounting His Army to take possession!”
True believer in Christ Jesus, Hear ME!!! You must NOT panic! We must hold our legal covenant ground! There is no other way!
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:12-18 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
