Jonathan Edwards once wrote “It’s the experience that counts” and that is exactly the point of this post. Satan is also a spiritual being who tries to twists and deceives people into what he wants. His primary target is to butcher the brethren’s (ecclesia) personal walk in the Lord. Satan was there for all the events recorded in the scriptures, and by the spirit of antichrist seeks to stumble and destroy the Lord Gods testimonial within His actual people!
The Apostle John first coined the phrase antichrist(s) speaking about those who had started with Christ, yet became diverted to “another gospel”. The Apostle Paul called these people “enemies of the cross” and grieved for those who no longer followed the “Spirit of Truth” as in the book of Galatians as an example. These early brethren started with the Lord in Spirit and in Truth, yet started moving independently within the flesh to another form of godliness, which I commonly call religion.
For the lost, it is the preaching of the gospel “which will ring right” in those who God has chosen to find Jesus Christ, the ones who have a love for the truth that they might be saved! The rest of humanity the scripture refers to as the wicked, who have no love for the truth (who is Christ crucified) that they might be saved.
This is strictly a spiritual condition, and no man-made (Bible) institutions are able to have any effect in those whom the Lord God has not chosen to do a work in! I have said before that you cannot teach people into Jesus Christ, as we have not the power to alter the will of God. We who know Him, are instructed to simply follow Him, and no other!
The Bible is simply the “owner’s manual” for those who by grace alone, God has chosen to do a work in.
We should never set out to try and prove God by using Bible doctrines, or even Bible apologetics (unless we are led of the Lord) to those who will never know Him: as the scriptures and fellowships should only ever exist for the actual brethren, the ones who actually know and follow Christ, in Spirit and in Truth. The rest are but false brethren, and should be excluded (no matter how well read) from the actual disciples!
Most would never guess that the “Spirit of Antichrist” would be embedded within “the church” even using the Bible in trying to justify themselves unto God, claiming Christ’s name as savior – but in (spiritual) actuality are none of His!
This is the Most Dangerous trap which Satan has ever devised since the Garden of Eden, designed specifically to derail and destroy those who once put their faith in Christ alone, and used by enemies of the cross, the mother of Harlots and her daughters!
Elders in the Lord must be able to spiritually discern of what spirit someone is of, as in 1 John 4 Chapter. This has nothing to do with intellect (natural understanding) and everything to do with an elder’s ability to discern the spirits, specifically the spirit of antichrist. The western mind specifically, operates by intellect – what I call “the tree of knowledge crowd”. The “WORD of God” is in spirit and in truth, as in John 1:1, In the beginning, Was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This passage is specifically referring to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not referring to a text on a page, as commonly espoused to be the Bible.
The Bible was intended to be used for reproof and correction of the brethren using sound doctrines, and not to be taught to the world and his wife by institutionalized systematic theologies or even Bible Colleges’, which have now cranked out all sorts of false brethren, as they have moved independently of God in using the intellect (natural mind) rather than being led by the Holy Spirit, whom they were instructed to follow by Christ himself.
This whole quagmire has gotten very complicated over the centuries, just go online and take a look at Luke Chapter 8 for example ; Calvinists will explain this chapter by using Bible cross references to show that the first 3 references of the sower and the ground, were not really saved to begin with. Whereas Armenians say that anybody can be saved, provided they continue to follow Christ, yet they disregard Luke 8:10, which speaks about the elect.
This is just one of many examples of learning up Bible doctrines by using natural understanding, walking independent of the Holy Spirit, who is Jesus Christ himself! He was the one who taught about the sower and the seeds, so is not He able to teach us in greater truth? Or do we need a bunch of Old Testament style Priests for such a task?
This is what the “Church industry” has become, and it is most destructive to an actual child of God, who only wishes to follow his father.
This is a very important article for people who want to express opposition towards different political views and cultures.
Those who have never struggled with the world cannot know Jesus Christ, as the world will hate you Jesus said. You cannot be a friend of the world and a friend of God both. To do so is to try and serve two masters. Bible based doctrines are being twisted today, as truth no longer has a place in people.
Ministering to corpses costs us and does not do any good, what are you doing?!!!
The number of diversions are astounding. If we are to make it into the Kingdom of Heaven full blast, before we die, then we had better beware.
What’s it all about, for goodness sake!
This is the very thing which always plagued me the most!
You see, if you were chosen by God before the foundations of the earth, you WILL come to Christ at some point in your life! In contrast, all the evangelism in the world will have no effect on the non- elect, known in the scriptures as the wicked!
Yes, of course, this is a “Bible-based theology” yet the Bible only applies to God’s actual people – the ones who follow Him, yet to follow someone is to know that person, and not just all about Him! This is what Satan does, he mimics’ the “things of God”, as he cannot actually produce them.
Systematic theologies are Satan’s invention, that’s right, what better way to attack and lead astray the ecclesia of God than to counterfeit the real thing which is only found by abiding in Christ! They are the sons of God who are led of the Spirit of God, also, lean not to your own understanding is also scriptural, but for only the Lord’s actual followers, and it doesn’t matter how well someone has learned up scripture and doctrines in their head!
In fact, Bible-based churches nearly always will just confuse and stumble an actual disciple of Christ, as they are taught by people normally of the spirit of Antichrist; those who started with us yet will not be conformed to his image by crucifixion of the old man. Normally the broad roader; the ones who started in regeneration, but took the wide way of the world is doing “church” instead. moving towards their own justification (of which there is none) they will dry up and die spiritually, and with a head full of theology! Or there are the ones who cannot, nor ever could follow Christ, (false believers) as they have never known Him, and were not elected to begin with. This is why Paul said he was in peril by false believers!
Towards the end of time the scripture teaches that only a scatter few (a remnant) are only really God’s elect people, and out of these, the majority choose the comfort of this world, rather than to actually follow Christ!
It is most convenient to teach Bible-based doctrines which give comfort to the masses of brethren – who have left their first love (like in Galatians), and turned to fables rather than remaining in the Truth – who is Jesus Christ himself! Just go online today and read the description listed on the doctrines of most any “church”; if they are Bible based, most will cherry pick the scriptures teaching things like covenant theology. They have nursery schools and youth groups teaching proper Bible, normally to most who will never come to Christ; yet could argue the chrome off a bumper using the Bible!
These type of brethren are wall to wall nowadays, as man orchestrated institutions of learning (accredited by the world) crank out those with a form of Godliness, but not the power thereof – from such turn away the Bible teaches! I could go on and on belaboring the point, yet it is of no use, as the natural mind (understanding) receives not the things of God! 1 John 4 is very specific about testing the spirits, but if you have not the spirit of Christ, you cannot know or even discern a difference in people or what spirit they are of, unless of course it is blatantly obvious they practice wickedness. Yet amazingly today, there are also many churches who will accept the most grievous of sinful lifestyles as this is what Satan does to try to destroy the name of the Lord, and His testimony to the world.
Come out of Her my people, and you will not be partaker’s in her plagues (blows) as the scripture warns in Revelations. It is no coincidence that the mother of Harlots sits upon the 7 hills – rivers of Rome, and her daughters (who are female) because they follow another than Jesus Christ himself (BY SPIRIT) not just by doctrines or even sound doctrine.
But the academic church loves to quote 2 Timothy 2:15 – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Well, firstly it is speaking about a workman (as in doing the Lord’s work) – and not just an academic; and to rightly divide the word of truth, one needs The Spirit of Truth (Jesus Christ) to lead the individual in the meaning of the scriptures. If you operate independent of Him, at best you are out of fellowship with God, and in sin, and you cannot be expected to rightly divide any particular passage of the Bible!
Yet this is what false brethren do – they operate independently of the Lord. This is why the scripture says that without Christ, you can do nothing! But never mind that scripture if one is capable of moving in their own strength, and that’s what man’s church systems continually do!
I will have NO part in moving independently of my Lord in serving the world or people of the world unless directed to do so, and then and only then, will I be sent forth in power and in Truth. Satan’s world today follows a doctrine of all-inclusiveness in churches, but the disciple must follow a doctrine of exclusiveness only to Christ who dwells within him.
Hampden, Maryland U.S.A.
I was a little disappointed to see the Wikipedia’s right up on the historic town of Hampden, Maryland. So I decided to fill in the blanks so to speak of some major events which I found to be missing. I’m not sure how to send in an update to the site, and perhaps my information would not be of interest to the authors, so I decided to post another version of Hampden’s history.
Many people do not realize today, that Baltimore was once considered a small “Southern Town”, as found written in many an encyclopedia as late as 1930 -40s, so perhaps in this era of political correctness and being so close to the nation’s capital, many of the neighborhoods “anti-northern sentiments” have been sanitized; like the recent decision by congress to ban confederate battle flags in our Nation’s cemeteries as to not offend minorities? I’m not sure, but it seems to me the SCW (social culture warriors) are now more important than real warriors of our past, at least from my perspective.
Speaking of the American Civil War, I once spoke with elderly women who we called Mss. Bertha, who had a home located at the top of 34th Street & Roland Ave. She was a nurse during the first World War and had moved to Hampden to practice medicine. She had grown up on a farm in Virginia and remembered Confederate troops camped out on her father’s farm. She still held quite a bit of bitterness towards the Union. When I asked her why she was so angry, wanting to know her justification for taking up arms against the United States, she pounded on the table and shouted: “Because the Federalist’s invaded Virginia – that’s why!” I was a little taken back by that, and never pushed the issue again in my visits.
I also spoke with a soldier who was a part of the 1915-1916 expeditionary force to Mexico, he told me he was sent to help quell the violence of Poncho Via, in connection with the New Mexico attacks. I asked him what it was like in “those days” with Mexico, he said; “that it is no different than today, we still have to send forces in to help curtail violence and U.S. Interests in those areas” (smiling).
My Grandfather was born “at the bottom” of Hampden in 1898, his home facing the famous meadow mill tower on clipper mill road. I used to love listening to his many (rougher) stories about the neighborhood, which will remain unpublished as they are not politically correct, but rather “tough, manly, no-nonsense” tales, as times were hard, the men were tough, and not too many people ever worried about “others feelings” in the daily living of life.
After my time in Hawaii aboard Coast Guard Cutters, I served in “street ministry” while living in Hampden, and was taught by a minister who specialized in Deliverance from 1984-1989, while working for the Baltimore Maritime Museum as a seaman aboard the Lightship Chesapeake, under the direction of the late Capt. Robert Cooper, USNPS.
Hampden, MD. A short History
- After the war of 1812, around 1814 the (Experimental) Baltimore Clipper Schooner started being produced for fast moving commerce over the waterways. One such waterway which was utilized was the Jones Falls, providing access to the Hampden Mills, by the relatively shallow draft vessels.
- During the American Civil War, many workers in the cotton mills despised President Lincoln who directly affected their lively hood within the textile industry. It was said that it was not uncommon for bricks and stones to be hurled at his railroad car when it passed through the nearby area of Hampden on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
- Professor Leo Daft (1843 – 1922) was an English professor and builder of early American urban railroads. He led the construction of an electrical railroad in Newark, New Jersey, in 1883, of the Baltimore and Hampden Electric Railway in the Hampden neighborhood (Union Ave line) of Baltimore in 1885.
- At the start of WWI, recruiters from the Army Navy and Marines visited the residence of Hampden in an effort to recruit healthy men eligible for military service. A Marine Corps Doctor was on staff, to help make an assessment of the recruits’. My Grandfather was one such candidate looking to join the USMC, the doctor had him run a heart pounding lap around the block, then listened to his heart. He said your fine, sign up at the recruiter table. At which point my grandfather joined the Navy.
- Silent movies complete with a piano player could be once enjoyed along Hampden’s 36th street for a nickel.
- Hampden had
4Medal of Honor winners from WWII, once displayed in a mural on the corner of Roland Ave and 36th street (Historic Hampden Hall). Directly across the street can be seen a casting of the famous Indian Head (Buffalo) Nickel, above the entrance to the concrete building.
- In 1988 the Hampden 100 year Centennial took place orchestrated by the Hampden Centennial Committee. President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation honoring the “oldest continual neighborhood” within the United States, the Town of Hampden Maryland.
The battle lines are being drawn clearly now, and we all need to be aware of the issues.
Isn’t it all becoming very clear now?
I have watched the decline of our culture in the United States for over 50 years. I can remember when honesty, decency, right and wrong were taught.
Our streets were clean, shop owners didn’t have to worry about theft, people left their doors unlocked, and work meant an honest day’s work completed with sweat and productivity.
Then socialism and humanism started replacing the American work ethic and the idea of accountability to a righteous God, and the God-fearing principles which I have for mentioned. The “New University Perversity” of not only questioning authority but overthrowing the institutions which helped to shore up the fabric of Western values was under attack. Even silent prayer in public schools was challenged as being evil in some perverse way, and starting with the family, and progressing to dumbing down the lower levels of our culture, has finally ending up in the gutters with all our ethics and “all peoples being equally deprived”.
Yet one has to have an enemy or a villain to blame, marginalize and ultimately destroy, for causing such a collapse! The Jews were blamed during the Second World War by the NAZI’s as they seemed to hold a lot of power and money yet were displaced from a homeland. The perfect target to be blamed for economic hardships and cultural decline!
Then Nationalism seemed to come under attack by the RED MENACE no sooner than a Jewish State could be built. The poor and downtrodden masses are given a daily dose of Communism by those who despise anyone who is more powerful and more productive than themselves! Attack the affluent, attack successful and well to do corporations, and businesses’ as evil and make sure you attack the headship as well! Hell, I’ve heard it done to Generals by politically correct Soldiers at an assembly who disagreed with the choice of “a word” and who were not even reprimanded!
That’s right attack, attack, attack, the Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Dodge, the military and any other large corporations capable of mobilizing and building the mass of equipment as these institutions who help to win WWII!
How ironic, that capitalism which delivered our culture from the great depression, and put everyone to work despite race, creed, or even gender, is attacked as being totally evil and greedy! RIDICULOUS is the only response for anyone who lived in that era! Yet the culture war of envy and strife are still being stoked by the Commie malcontents, you know “Communist” Organizers like our present day President elected by a guilt-ridden and dumbed down electorate, not once, but twice!
Turning it all upside down: You will remember that the Man was once the head of his household. The woman was a helpmeet to her husband and nurturer of the children. This was the Christian informed ethos, which blessed those who adhered to its principles. The outright rebellion of the 1960’s and 70’s produced a more and more unstable family and adult workforce, and more poverty with dependency upon an ever-increasing Government.
Unmarried women giving birth were now rewarded with government dollars, in an effort to provide for the general welfare. Johnson’s “Great Society” pumped out more and more federal dollars and programs designed to help the poor, yet in actuality enslaved them to ever-increasing dependency. The federal government has never been the answer to a prosperous people. The American Indian is another example of putting people into a community (reservation) and throwing money at them, without hope or financial independence or even personal dignity.
Let’s see, we can’t blame big government and elitists, so how about the middle class – but that’s too vague… So we should blame Colonialism, and more specifically the white male as the oppressor of the masses, and all the earth’s peoples – including his women!!! Yes, yes, yes, perfect, women can leave him, be independent and even abort his children if they please. Sexual orientations shall become optional, and all his authority shall be minimized as oppressive to others!
The idea of white privilege and blaming America, shall be forwarded over all the so-called oppressed, and never mind the fact that hard work motivation ingenuity and sacrifice may have earned him his position of earthly riches within the world! No, it is easier to play the victim and rebel against the have’s by the have-nots!
I was shocked when I discovered an accredited course of study in sociology labeled the white man as the oppressor – the white man “IS” the oppressor is how we were taught! Not even the fact that in the past, some in power committed murder (trail of tears), lied, cheated and stole from others. But that even today, evil oppression was still present in all “white men” with power! I have the certification to prove what I have written, although I didn’t have the luxury of recording it like the class did to us students… Remember, it was the Republican Abraham Lincoln, that moved the United States,the only nation on earth that the white male paid in blood to stop slavery of a different people!
Additionally,if you open an encyclopedia from the 40’s or 50’s you will see that tribalism and cannibalism were still very present in the undeveloped regions of the world! Who developed them – the white male of course! Yet many still refused to learn how to build or even maintain the modern technological machinery needed to connect them for prosperity to the modern world around them, and like today these systems still get cannibalized for parts and semi-precious metals!
All that is needed to do is to take an honest look at places that the U.K. and U.S. once developed and led, and the proof is irrefutable that these places are but wastelands today! Apologize for being a white man, never, why should I? History has been replaced with social studies (political correctness) and the Lord God replaced by relativism and situational ethics at best.
Furthermore, all people’s in power have murdered, stolen, lied and cheated others to simply stay in power for thousands of years; and ethnicity had nothing to do with it! I did six years in street ministry in Baltimore City, I went out of my way to help those in need in the spirit of Christian charity. I have nothing to apologize for. And as a matter of fact, I worked four hours longer in the same job (2 hours earlier – 2 hours later) than did some Black individuals – and was paid the same; but I’m not complaining, I was happy to have a job with benefits, even if the white supervisors worked me much harder, and a couple of times to having heat stroke.
But you know what – I am used to being abused by the world, at least to a small degree. Tribulation and some form of persecution are the Christians’ plight, which he is promised while in the world for the simple fact of being the Lord’s disciple.
I have watched righteousness replaced by wickedness, by educators, politicians, and malcontents. It is a sad day when the most prosperous nation on earth is thrown under the bus for debauchery in serving Satan rather than the Lord God! And all god’s are not the same God either, although Satan would have us blend it all together as one, with no distinction between error and truth. You know how it is said, we all are the same, all sinners and so forth. This might be the case initially, yet it cannot be the case if one has been transformed into the image of Christ. We might not be able to reach perfection, and we stumble and fall, yet by grace we who know HIM are a new creation and no longer have the excuse to live in sin which separated us from God.
Too many Excuses and no Truth is the world today; ever since 9-11-2001 who would have ever thought we would have a President say that we are no longer a Christian Nation? Yet do business with known Terror groups, and import some of the very people, who not that long ago, tried to destroy us! Notice that the first thing so-called progressives did was scream about Timothy McVeigh. Remember the old saying two wrongs don’t make a right? Humanists do not, and this is all a reversal of God’s natural order which destroys Nations, in paving the way for the Man of Sin, who the world will worship as God!
Incidentally, genetically speaking it is the Man who determines what traits his offspring will inherit, not the women. It is the man who determines the DNA coding of his people it has never been nor never will be the women mixing with other men which will save Europe, which is popular to report on the NEWS nowadays by feminists who despise the West, and it’s old school values.
The Lie has become so big that even some liberal professors try to argue around the hereditary facts of life, as they are children of the Devil, the father of lies, who serve Lucifer, and are only fit to be burnt. As in the days of Noah, so shall the coming of the son of man be; and the Demon serving elitists at the top of global power know it!
The insecure ground of church speak is not good for us. We need the rock of truth, and the comfort it gives us. It is the only sound ground.
It seems that the “new world order starts, when people lose confidence in governments”. It is the feet of Iron and clay as in the book of Daniel, and Revelation 17 into 18 unfolding before our eyes. Below are some introductory’s to some of the things which Albert Pike apparently helped champion. by Terry Melanson, Oct. 5th, 2010 entitled: Albert Pike to Mazzini, August 15, 1871: Three World Wars?
For a short time, this letter was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and it was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy.
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”
Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War.
“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”
After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.
“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of *** Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.*** This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events in the Middle East show a growing unrest and instability between Jews and Arabs. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off.
– Michael Haupt, “Who was Albert Pike?” (Jun 07, 2003)
*** 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4 > Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, ***and that man of sin be revealed***, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Always remember, Satan and his “minions” can only go so far as the Lord God allows!
I have noticed over my years of walking with my Lord, that naturally I will manifest his nature in my “mind’s eye”, as it is “He” who has shown me His Truth by His Spirit.
The counterfeits to this truth have been Bible based theologies, and sometimes doctrines! WHAT – are you kidding me? Most would be inclined to ask, and with good reason, for most work externally while trying to “digest the scriptures” into their natural understand, (cerebral) which receives NOT the things of God!
Got It? I just did – at 57 years of age now,and finally fellowshipping with “real born again in spirit” brethren and Elders! I’m not talking about emotionalism (soulish) activity in experiencing God, nor even his gifting’s, I’m speaking about those who can readily identify Jesus Christ within themselves, not found in the masses of people’s! (1 John 4).
Let me give you an example; today after over 30 years of Bible in my life, I’ve spoken with a brother who like me has had an “inkling from the Holy One” when concerning his memories of the scriptures. We both have searched and searched concordances for a lot of verses – which we can never seem to find! The reason is because these verses (which we know are scriptural) and in contexts are living – as in hearing the voice of our Lord. Often it is days, weeks, months, and even years later, which we stumble upon the texts in the Bible. Historically this is why many transcripts of scripture were found stashed away on people’s notes (for hundreds of years) all around the globe even at the cost of death, and who had never met; yet the verses were nearly identical to the actually printed texts of the scriptures, which had yet to be published!
This is an extraordinary and supernatural event, and witness of being one of God’s Sheep. The greatest part to me is, that you need not be an academic to have this ability, only humble with a meekness of heart! This sounds like dribble, and disgusts the natural man, as he is full of pride self-will and his own natural abilities.
The Carnal man aggressively resists and even hates those who are low enough to function in Jesus Christ! I believe the reason for this is so the Lord can personally teach his actual ecclesia. As we should never move independently of our Lord like many broad roaders do who are in and full of themselves because of their natural abilities and memories. We who are on the narrow way are being taught to listen, move, and hear our Lord so that we might be able to move in power and in strength, as only He is able to lead us in such a manner.
I have a family member who works for Big Name Christian Universities and very well versed in the scriptures, yet move at best as a mere babe in Christ. The reason I believe is that many are underdeveloped within their spiritual relationship with God; or worse, perhaps they have been “cut off” in their spiritual life as they have “chosen” to become diverted away from the Lord and have dried up only fit to be burnt. The reason for this is they are actually practicing another “form of Godliness” rather than being crucified in Christ, and being raised to newness of life!
Nowadays it is my firm belief that modern-day “temple worship” has once again replaced simply following Christ in spirit and in truth, and many have and will be deceived by those who preach anything but Christ, and Him Crucified.
The bottom line is, you can’t teach people into Jesus, and only those who have been given the chance to become the sons and daughters of God must push into His Kingdom (which Jesus taught was within us)– and not orchestrated organizations, who have never seen Him nor Known Him!
Either you’re “in Christ” or you’re not. It is not a matter of being “into Jesus Christ” it is a matter of Him being in you.
Is often dismissed or minimized in the postmodern world in using terms in academia such as humans or mankind instead of simply “man”. Also, the proper use of he, or him, and even son, have been discontinued as the masculine format is now considered sexist, after the so-called feminism movement, dependent upon the modern Bible translation. Nowadays even “Gender neutral” terminology is being sought out to rewrite the once long-standing job descriptions depicted for the U.S. military and sea services amongst other texts.
It is my opinion that this is all done in an effort to put down the standing of the man being in authority over the creation, and to raise up the women, children and effeminate over him. This is directly contrary to the Lord God’s order, and that is why the wicked world and its people who are owned by Satan, are operating on this footing. He that restrained is now gone (2 Thessalonians 2:6-7). And the camp of the Saints has been overrun, awaiting the man of sin to be revealed, worshiped “as God”. And then will ultimately be destroyed by the true coming of the Lord God.
Many will argue that the new covenant in Jesus Christ changed the Old Testament ordinances and laws, yet Jesus himself said that he did not come to do away with the law, but rather to fulfill it – by walking in the perfect spirit of truth by his people. The idea that; “in Christ – by spirit” there are neither Greek nor Jew, male or female is correct, as the spirit world operates independently from the physical, yet it does not change the confines created or initiated while in the world; providing a stable (but not perfect) environment of existence.
Some have gone so far as to say the Lord God, and later the Apostle Paul were sexist. Many have argued the cultural contexts for the women’s roles of that day are antiquated, and that a “flip of the calendar” has changed the present day structuring of the family, and the paternal society once represented in Western cultures. Yet the will and person of God have never changed or been altered, nor the ordinance’s within his creation.
In the English, the word MAN is synonymous with say the word DOG, in that it represents a species. It does not need to be interpreted as uniquely male in many of its uses, however, when used in contexts with women, the “female form of man”, she is always passive in the language for the simple reason that the “male form of man” is always dominant. This is a proper rule used in multiple languages since antiquity, and to change a language is to eventually alter the structuring of a people and their behaviors.
This is a revolutionary idea, which has been practiced throughout the centuries in overthrowing cultures and nations.
And this is exactly why many of the scriptures have been rewritten from the original texts and intent, in accommodating a progressive world viewpoint acting independently of the Lord God’s ordinations. At the basal level, this is to act in sin and rebellion, which is as witchcraft the Bible says and practiced in the world on a large scale since Babble. Man has acted upon such impulses to be as gods (Genesis 3) and are following demons in rebellion against God, although most of the masses are ignorant of this fact – let us say, the elitist pagan priests are (still) not.
If one simply does some “reverse engineering of the scriptures” and God’s ordinances of separation instated since Babble, it is easy to see what the demonic agenda is, in unifying the world and all its people in rebellion against the Lord God, and even the “Christian informed” monoculture with “Man being the head”.
This is precisely why effeminate behavior, dress, and sex is forbidden for men to indulge in, as it destroys the fabric of the family and threatens the very health and existence of “God’s Glorious Man” the crowning jewel of His creation. And Satan wants his throne, above God’s throne.
NOTE: The asterisks (*) which may represent “modern Bible interpretations” consistently undermining the man as being created to be the head of the women. Thus, it allows the women to be put on an equal authority footing with the man, which the Lord God never intended.
Below are some Bible verses depicting the importance of the leadership role of the man (male) in society as ordained by the Lord God.
*Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let (them) have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
(Note the creation order/Adam realized he needed a suitable mate later).
Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
*Genesis 5:1 – This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; (Believe it or not, even this specific verse appears “gender neutral” in some postmodern translations).
Gen. 18:13 – (The Lord God spoke to Abraham about Sarah).
Proverbs 12:4 (Nobel or disgrace to her husband / Submission or Rebellion).
Proverbs 31:3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. (In a general sense, this verse applies to men who are subservient to women, yet more specifically – a man giving his spiritual and physical strength to a women in having sex, bringing down the most powerful of men. And physiologically is known to even add strength unto the women).
Ecclesiasticus 3:10 (Sons of Men = Long term genetic inheritance).
The Father was the bloodline of Jesus, (the second Adam) never the mother.
Judges. 11:7 (Fathers house = Paternal authority).
1 Timothy 2:11-15 (The Serpent deceived the women).
1 Corinthians 11: 3-10 and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
1 Corinthians 11:7
A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
Ephesians 5: 22-23 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord; for the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church, and He is the savior of the body.
Back in August of 2015, ISIS destroyed a majority of a mixture of Roman, Persian, and Mesopotamian ruins in the City of Palmyra, Syria. After Syrian forces drove ISIS out of the area they discovered mass graves of mostly women and children as the Independent reported in May of 2015.

Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is of the utmost importance in who or what you love above and beyond anything or anyone in the world!
I was trained as a Reformed Christian, (Calvinist) which simply means I was trained the Bible with about 75 -80% accuracy. Still, the truth is only found by being “in” Christ, and not outside of him! Most (the scriptures tell us) will NOT enter into the Kingdom of Heaven – which is found on the inside of an actual follower of the Lord, and not externally.
At this point, I would venture to say, that most will read this article and just shake their heads in dismissal of what they consider being foolishness, or a lack of understanding on my part. But, Contraire, spiritual life is not foolishness at all, but is seen as foolishness unto the carnal or natural understanding. And so, now the root of the problem has been exposed.
Let me put it in simpler terms, the believer’s heart is the issue in who, what, or when they decide to actually abide in, and follow Jesus Christ into the Kingdom. Most will take the broad road, as they are actually enemies of the cross, and cannot be expected to lose their own lives in the world, in order to gain Christ’s life, (which is everlasting) and find it anew eternally. I struggled and studied for years to find acceptance and even accreditation, within the “Church” – but the “Chuurrch” is something “other” than actually following Christ; I finally discovered (or should I say) “was shown”!!!
I was offered an Independent Anglican Priesthood, at first, then another, and even another in the world. This all happened after I experienced the “nonoffering” of an Elders position, within my local assembly. So I pushed outside to further my “service” to the Lord via other institutions, desperate for acceptance. Yes, I admit it, I was desperate to be recognized as a man of God, and finally (I thought) within my life.
But, the Lord God my owner, had a different plan for me… A massive “widow maker” and near death experience, on my 20 years of military service and 3 days after my worldly ordination. But why? I wondered, and in my search for the answer, I was finally shown the TRUTH – who is Christ himself!
He showed me, Himself, in my NDE pressing up next to me, then I saw Him again later,– opposite my study! Dr. Gross who had trained me while in street ministry exclaimed “Roland, don’t you see, it is Jesus saying follow ME, Roland, follow Me”!
If I had taken any other path, I would NOT have been following Him, Jesus Christ, my Lord, Savior, and Master. In other words, I would have followed one of the many “whores” or unfaithful brides, who are found in Revelation Chapter 17.
This is what a “broad roader” does, they follow someone or some system, rather than following Jesus Christ. Yet the actual disciple follows Jesus in their heart of hearts, as they love Him above all else, and all others in the world! That’s right- I’m lamb blasting the so-called church, who are masquerading as the bride of Christ, but in actuality, most are of the spirit of Antichrist, apostate, and filthy whores, drunk on the blood of the Saints!
Elect unto Salvation, Yes, do most continue with Christ, No. But by the grace of God, He showed me just wear I was lacking in my “Reformed” understanding. And as the “good ground” like found in Luke chapter 8:15 – I responded in the affirmative, for I love the Truth (Jesus Christ) that I “might be” ultimately saved and sanctified unto new life.
And that’s the rest of the story, which is hated and despised amongst men!
