100 Bible Verses about Soothsayers:
100 Bible Verses about Soothsayers:
This guy stands on his faith, he is not just pretending to be a follower of his faith while shielding himself by drawing a distinction between the: “things of the world / things of God”. You can’t be salt by keeping your head in the clouds upon this earth!
Are you well spoken? Than you have a greater responsibility in watching what you say to others in your gifting from God.
Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me!
Wake up oh sleeper… Ephesians 5:14, (KJV) “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.”
So you don’t think worldly knowledge is important? One’s education of history, and specifically western civilization is of grave importance to understand: should our children perish for lack of knowledge, and critical thinking, in that we must all recognize human depravity, and a need for a Savior!
When I worked in street ministry Dr. Gross (holding a Phd in phycology) gave us all a test to see how much we learned was factual ( based on history) and what was fictional in rewritten “social studies” and even high school english. I was surprised to learn that much of what I had been taught was false information, and this was in the 1980’s! Humanism was the new curriculum, which started after WW2 and imported from Europe, as the United States then had a teacher shortage at the time. From that time forward the educational system has been built on the foundation of Humanism (which was ruled by the Supreme Court as a religion) ; yet is anti-God, and now is widely known as Cultural Marxism today. One of the tactics taught by Marxists, was in convincing Christians that it is wrong to be involved in “worldly politics” in an effort to push their most ungodly and anti western ideals on a free people.
It is tragic that some Christians will assert that we only need listen to the Lord, while denying the need for truthful dialog, specifically geared towards our children in this age of great delusion! How selfish it is to become complacent in one’s belief system, simply because you refuse to be involved in the great “politically motivated” delusions taught to our children in an age of delusion which screams out for reason and truth, rather than rhetoric!
Below is a video well worth watching: explaining why historical and even political dialog: is critical for a believer in Jesus Christ!
Don’t become complacent in butt curling up in a corner with your Bible, while the whole of humanity desperately needs truth and light to be taught and understood, and not kept under a bushel basket!

When I was in Equal Opportunity school, people like me (Christians) were referenced as “Die Hards’”. Some Progressive have even stated that “Christians” were the biggest threat to their progressive goals and values.
Nowadays I would have a hard time within my soul, of accepting the morality (or lack of) exhibited, and pushed for by political activist groups within the last 50 years. I’m not saying that I couldn’t function, I’m just stating my personal perceptions in how the world has changed, and in my view now call evil good, and good evil!
The traditional family structure is at the root of these attacks, the man who used to be the provider and protector of his household. This is how the creator of the universe, and man and women intended it to be; yet the western male has now become emasculated in even calling it “his household”, or in trying to exert his position as head.
After WWII the United States had a teacher’s shortage, and to fill this shortage many “progressive socialists” from Europe came into fill the ranks. We used to call them Humanists, as they did not believe in a God. Today most call them “cultural Marxists” in identifying their political slant; but no matter, they certainly are anti-God in all that they teach and do. These humanist were most active in the 1960-70’s in breaking down the Christian informed ethos within the family (which they loath).
The results of their teachings can be seen around the globe now, and they are experts in the manipulation of language ensuring that eventually everyone will adhere to their dogmas, without any thought to what has occurred in generations before. Also targeted is re-writing history, and the buying up of National Geographic, and any other media mediums as an as example, which might present a different viewpoint from the past. Even the History channel as another example now glorifies and promotes the LGBT struggle as righteous, and attacks the old Christian informed value system enforcing the roles in the family as bigoted, sexist, and intolerant.
It is a total and ruthless “reboot” of society and any traditional “Godly” values these activist perceive in standing in their way! The rhetoric of these leftists idealists love to invent words such as “Homophobe, Xenophobe”, and of course sexist in an attempt to overthrow any thought process that is not “all inclusive” of every people and every culture, and primarily targeted at the west.
In not making this article too long, I wish to say that despite me being taught that men were the protectors of women (and children); the feminist and homosexual lobbies have not only gained access to the once straight male dominated military, but indeed is in the process of eliminating all conservative thinking “western” males which are perceived as resistant to the change.
The women, used to be treasured above all else, by men who would risk their lives in protecting them and the home front so that they might have families healthy to return to once the threat was neutralized from abroad.
It gave most men strength and purpose, for a nobler cause than themselves, which was constantly on most of their minds, when not in the heat a battle, and something grand to return home to after the war.
I am nearly 60 now, and all you have to do is ask any WWII veteran, and most will tell you that is what they thought about most.
Nowadays it is understood that most young men don’t even have the hope of raising a family or having a devoted wife, it seems this dream for many is just too far gone into the past to do so. Yet this is exactly what the progressive humanist in their viewpoint of a utopia for the world had envisioned!
The all-inclusive worldview of today, is thought to be the best there is in our “evolution” towards perfection, and sin is scoffed at as being almost superstitious rooted in a belief in God. So, how’s that working out for “modern man”, (oops I mean humankind) ? I think it is a turn towards the lowest common denominator within humanity, which is ruled by sin and rebellion against God. Yet these progressive activist only dream of erasing any precepts (and people) holding on to these old “die hard” values, which were once nearly universally understood at least in western cultures!
No, nowadays, it is “apologize for the white man” and all the Christian informed dogmas in orthodoxy which were once practiced by the west.
This is a secular post predominantly, and it only proves to me that if one rejects the Lord, only Satan’s order is available…
The military used to be known for their legal discrimination in maintaining a strong and cohesive force. Discrimination used properly is a force multiplier, however bigotry cannot be tolerated as it is corrosive to good order and discipline. So who will judge the just or unjust authority figures?
Merit promotion policies took root during the Johnson Administration, an offshoot of Americas Civil Rights. The social engineers in “the marketplace” started enforcing quotas for blacks and other minority groups, with the theory this would ensure Equal Opportunity, in the otherwise dominated white male workforce.
Somehow this has morphed into “the white man is the oppressor” within progressive academic circles.
Should not a man (or women) be judged on the “content of their character’, as coined by the Civil Rights greatest leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? Everyone I have ever known agrees with this assertion, yet regulating this principle within the “great society” of diverse humanity seems to have predominantly failed.
Character Assassins within a Orwellian type of society, now seems to dominate the landscape instead of the ideals once envisioned. And a state of denial by politicians that regulating (White) society has been ineffective, even with over 50 years of accommodations, and a Black President only seems to have exacerbated the issues, and caused greater pain and resentments for all involved.
I am an old school American, born under 48 States in the union. My family is church people (the conservative Bible believing type, not liberals) and the moral principles of the proper family unit were stressed.
I went into the military in 1980, women were still new to being accepted in the services in the Academies. I think this was only right, being that the male was to be the provider and defender of his family. Sexual tensions were the result of this mixing, and I was on one of the first ships to try such debauchery with their temptations and newly formed power struggles of the sexes.
Women do have a place in the services in building up the strength, but are a deficit when taxing the men even further, in there so-called move towards equality.
These are a couple of bullet points to a much more compromising picture to so-called human rights.
Destruction of the unborn while still in the womb, was a real dive from the moral cliff of decency, and can only be compared to the eugenics used by the NAZI’s in an attempt to get rid of the unwanted.
The women’s movement, is known to have its roots in the annals of Marxist doctrines, in an attempt to tear down the structuring of the family, and society in general. Also at that time Homosexuality was being pushed by Hollywood and other decadent forces for acceptance into the main stream.
The American Civil Rights movement was in full swing, and had corrected many evils of injustice, yet it came with its own new sets of new problems, and creating a greater resentment towards the white male in particularly.
I had never discriminated against another because of their race, religion, or ethnic background, yet I sure experienced it as early as my 20’s working two hours prior to me piers showing up, and two hours after they left, in making the same pay. They happened to be black, but it was the white supervisors who initiated (off the record) this new work ethic. I never complained, I was happy to have the job, however I did point my bosses hypocrisy, and with the threat of termination, I never said another word.
Of course, (and I really believe it) this has allot to do with being the Lord’s and suffering rejection from the world and it’s establishments, even as the Jews were seen as lesser by the Egyptians, and only to be used as slaves.
On a personal level, I have never had a problem in working with another, until resentment has been interjected by an outside political influence. This is the problem people are experiencing today.
At a basil level the absolute authority is the Lord God, yet nowadays everything is targeted at undermining this idea because of the rebellious nature within most people. Evolution for instance, is a direct assault of even the concept of there being a God, with “humankind” improving and developing into a higher life form. Whereas, the Bible clearly teaches that none is without sin, and except for Grace of God in Christ, all will degenerate to the lowest form of human depravity!
And this is exactly what is taking place today, filth is equivocated with righteousness’ as we spiral further and further away from the truth! It is the “Feet of Iron and Clay” found in the book of Daniel, the mixing together of all things (and Peoples) in rebellion towards God. Yet most people nowadays cannot see that their desires are worse than the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, as they use humanistic sciences to justify sinfulness, and scoff at righteousness – even wishing to overthrow it, and by extension the Lord God of Israel! As a result of most of humanity being children of the Devil, they will rejoice when he shows up claiming to be God, while performing many false miracles, while posing as God. Even Bible believing churches, who do not actually know Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth, will fall victims of Satan crying peace and safety thinking their savior has arrived. Yet soon afterwards, the Lord will destroy all this wickedness, and the world cannot hide (and wishing the rocks will fall on them) prior to His thousand-year reign upon the earth.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (KJV) 5) But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
Revelation 6:16 (KJV) 16) And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
After all this being said, the real question should be, are you with the Lord, or are you not, as this will determine your destination through eternity!
Maybe I should have called this chopping up the Bible to tickle people’s ears..?
In my opinion, this new chart is a disgrace to the completed work of Christ on the Cross… It divides the (“Graphy” word) of truth, all right – yet almost reaches a level a heresy which I have never seen before in a Bible based Church. It’s fair enough to think you are doing a service to the Lord, but most sad when you are doing a disservice. Using the 1918 Clearance Larkins graphic is one thing, but modifying that work 100 years later for purely intellectual or theological purposes in the name of teaching, is entirely another!
Yet this is not uncommon, and I don’t mean to pick on any one particular group, yet this is a perfect example of using Systematic Theology in blatant independence of God, in my estimation. Systematic Theology should never be put above the Lord Jesus Christ when a carnal understanding of the Bible to the natural mind, is really what is sought, rather than the whole truth within contexts of what scripture verse is being read.
The reason for this is that often time’s men wish to be seen as “all knowing” rather than to submit themselves in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the way the truth and the life, who promises his actual disciples to reveal all truth (confirmatory with the whole of the scriptures) to their understanding. It may sound most harsh, yet this is why the Bible warns about false teachers and prophets in men towards the “end of days” saying, (by their actions) I am God. I don’t know how else to put it without compromising my point.
As a rule of thumb, Jesus Christ (God incarnate) “is the be all, and end all”, of the whole of the scriptures. From Genesis to Revelations, it is none other than Jesus Christ being either alluded to, indirectly or directly as being the way back to God the Father.
Yet the (newest) above chart can be folded to exclude the “age of the Gentiles”, as if it was out of convenience to the Lord’s provision for “all humanity” – the Person of Jesus Christ, can somehow now be rejected by the “natural Jew” (who was cut off from the stock of Israel) and yet during the apocalypse, these remaining Jews may still obtain Salvation in their acceptance of their Messiah, (whom they rejected) even after the wedding feast of the lamb has occurred.
Jesus Christ also said to the Pharisees, “If you tear down this temple that he would rise it up in 3 days”: so was he speaking about brick and mortar being rebuilt? Of course not, he was speaking about himself being raised up from death unto new life, not about the earthly or carnal plane.
So why then do men feel the need to make Israel something found within the carnal or natural world even towards the end of this dispensation? The Bible clearly states: Jew or Gentile, male or female, the whole of the world (can) is now made complete in Christ’s atonement on the cross. “Period, end of story”.
So why then is there such confusion when speaking about eschatology? In short, carnal understanding of the Bible is the reason. I submit to you that the Bible is speaking about “Spiritual Israel or Jew”, who have been made complete in Christ.
I would further add that it is an ongoing insult to the Father and the Son in thinking there will be some sort of return of the natural Jew (by birth) to the Lord God of Israel, without rebirth of one found in Christ, Jesus!
Yet, this is what eschatology has become in this day of strong delusion, and natural understanding of the Bible, apart from the Lord Jesus Christ.
I wanted to post an updated version about the “Kings of Persia” as prophesied in Daniel Chapter 10, mainly because of the pathetically weak Biblical writings which I have read on this subject since I posted it years ago. Perhaps this is because most churches wish to remain comfortable within the world and not offend anyone? Or perhaps they are actually spiritually blind, and can’t see past their academia? I’m not sure, but what I do know is what I can plainly see, combined with having 30 years of Bible instruction, and all types of eschatology: but then there is the Truth which is only understood by the Spirit of truth, who is Christ himself!
The overthrow of the west, is an attempted overthrow of anything Christian within its traditional framework. It really starts to snowball after the events in – 2 Thessalonians 2, as “he that restraineth” (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way. This does not include the Lord’s people, yet it does include the general grace to the world, which helped to keep sin down (restrained it) to a certain degree.
After the restraints come off, sin will run rampant upon the earth, worse than in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. What do we have today, unbridled sin which looks to overturn all of the past restraints predominantly instated by western cultures, and people.
To make matters worse, sin insists on being non-restrained and will war against anyone or any culture which attempts to stand in its way. So then, “Multiculturalism” symbolized as the feet of iron and clay (Adam meaning red, clay) . In Daniel, shows a cobbled together world unified of different people, cultures and religions ruling the world, this is also known as Babylon, which represents a culture of sin and corruption apart from the Lord God’s order.
The most interesting phenomenon to me occurred after the 9-11 attacks on New York’s twin towers and the Pentagon. Islamic Terrorism thrusts the United Sates and all western powers into global conflict, (the Global War on Terror, which I played a small part in) and it has not slowed or stopped since, despite thousands of live lost, wars and rumors of wars, despite many attempts by the powers that be wishing to accommodate such fanatical people’s.
These Muslim (Persian) people have been allowed to migrate (for a large part) unchecked by western authorities, who were once charged with protecting their populations. As a result a slaughter is occurring to any “old school” western ideals and cultures (Christian informed values) , for a perverse progressive objective in the blending of the world together as one. This blending together, is the feet of Iron and Clay prophesied in the book of Daniel. In Daniel chapter 10 – verse 13-14 it is explained to Daniel in significant spiritual detail, what shall befall thy people in the latter days! I must interject at this point that this is not just physical Israel, but indeed is spiritual Israel, the ones grafted into the vine because of Christ.
The spiritual significance is that the Kings of Persia, are demonically driven forces who are allowed to battle the Lord God, and his Angels; most notably the Chief Angle Michael, who has been given authority next to the Lord God. These Demonic beings (the kings of Persia) – the Muslim world, are allowed to dominate, desolate and destroy all traces of the Christian informed culture, and their people.
This is blatantly obvious to anyone who has eyes to see, it is much more pressing than just a theological study of eschatology and the apocalyptic passages! It really amazes me just how passive and weak many of these scriptures are presented by Bible academics, who have no power nor light to see or digest an all-encompassing and consuming problem of this present age. No rather it is presented in the “safe space” of being merely academic, and therefore open to conjecture and interpretation by those who are puffed up within their own understanding of the scriptures!
I believe these Persians are exactly what they are described as being in the latter days, and will nearly destroy white western cultures, except for the fact that the man of sin (the Devil) will come first in playing God, who will be worshipped by the world as such. 1 Thessalonians 5-3 “and the world will cry peace and safety”. The wicked man of sin will perform many signs and wonders, and basically demand to be worshipped as God.
Then, Christ will return in the clouds and destroy him with the breath of his mouth and the brightness of His coming. Hence Babylon, with all its outwardly expressed sin in the world will be destroyed, and the thousand year reign of Christ and his Bride will begin. At this point, the judgment day will hold off till after the thousand year reign of Christ, after the very last rebellion of Satan and his people, who are judged not to be in the book of life, and cast into the lake of fire for eternity.
In this physical world Satan uses natural understanding to bury the truth of God.
Whereas God’s people by grace often appear as pathetic to a proud world or church.
This is why church is so strong and determined to be right, even killing all those who are the Lord’s and speak against it. This is the strength of ‘don’t judge’!
I am hopeful that, having sorted out the church monster people from the body of Christ we will see our God move in power with us shortly. Something is moving, and you can bet that the wicked church’er sort are not going to like it as they will not be included.
*Against God, and the things of God, are the order of the day.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
This is surely the reason why so many like to attack us who point out the corruption of what is going on. Why are people so strong in their defence of their chuurrcchh ?
People tend to focus on their interpretations of Bible doctrines rather than letting their eye be single and focusing on Jesus Christ who lives within them! In short, they lean towards their own understanding.
This is a trap of the enemy, assimilating facts and scriptures into the memory and leaning to one’s natural understanding rather than following Jesus in Spirit and in Truth. Spiritual Crucifixion of the “old man” must continually be put to death in Christ. Even seemingly good things done without the leading of the Holy Spirit must go if we are to be transformed into Christ’s image by way of the cross.
In the modern era, walking in the spirit of truth (who is Jesus Christ) seems ridiculous especially to the Western mind, it is considered emotionalism to many, and even worse sometimes unbiblical. But the truth be known, walking in the spirit is the ultimate in Biblical correctness!
What the Apostle John first coined as “Antichrist’s” were actual brethren who started with Christ, yet became diverted away from the cross, as their minds wanted to preach another gospel rather than total dependency on Jesus Christ and Him crucified. It is the same today, systematic theologies (religion) would rather learn up scripture in their heads and supplant the headship of Christ, often to be seen as “a leader” to others in the world, rather than walk in humble and simple obedience to Christ’s leading within them. The Apostle Paul called these “enemies of the cross” and the Spirit of antichrist has become the predominant spirit within Christianity as a whole! The word antichrist has been overused so much, that it has taken on a whole new meaning. The correct meaning is an alternative to Jesus Christ; and not some raving demonically charged hater of Jesus Christ, with the Hollywood version being portrayed as Satan incarnate.
Used in a historical sense, “The Antichrist” would be the man orchestrated placement of another man, who claims to represent Christ on earth. This would be in holding the office of the Pope of Rome, the mother of Harlots, and her bastard children (other whores). Who will reveal (Satan) the “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked”, King of Babylon, and so forth who is found in Revelations 17-18 and worshipped as God by all the world, prior to his destruction with the world.
Back to my main point of this article: the Smorgasbord of different “so called” Biblical doctrines are mind-boggling today, all types of Salvation by Gnostics, Legalisms, Lineage, Mysticism, Pantheism, Penance, Universalisms, to name a few and specific twisting to individual scriptures by all types of cults to achieve their ends. Whereas the Gospel of Jesus Christ is quite simple for us who know him, it is to simply follow him (and no other) in spirit and in truth, as we have a love for the truth (Jesus Christ) that we “might be” saved ultimately!
On a personal note: I have never been an academic in being able to rely on myself to function using rote memorization, even when referring to the scriptures. In fact, I have found that the Lord God normally frustrates any of my attempts to sound educated in the flesh, unless He be pleased to quicken a part of my 40 years of Bible or name and place of historical events which I have absorbed into my ADHD brain over time. This quickening has only happened once in my life on a massive scale; when I was trying to prove to the Church leadership that I was equipped to be an Elder. But the real problem was, that they didn’t want someone of “a different spirit” around, showing them up (so to speak) and making them feel bad. I was even able to confound a Harvard-educated Elder who the board of directors looked to for advice… but no appointment to that level of leadership was ever obtained, as they did not want the power of “Jesus Christ” in me to disrupt their institution! I was so frustrated by this rejection by those who claim Christ’s name as their Lord and savior, that I started searching elsewhere for acceptance to some other reformed denomination.
I was casting my pearls before swine, and they trampled and attacked me with a type of sympathetic love in an effort to hide their venom for anyone who could actually move and function in Jesus Christ, in being a living testimony to His work! People call me spiritually proud, or even bitter for the rejection I experienced within the leadership, but the truth be known – John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Of course there is no convincing others many who have taken the broad road away from Christ, that indeed you are in the right place, (and they are not) when discerning their independence from the Lord God in being enemies of the cross. Nor can you teach someone who has never been born again of spirit, how to move and function in the things of God.
Thus, for a mental bridge, even devoid of different doctrines, you have 3 types of Christians:
I would like to say in closing, that although it was painful in suffering rejection from the world and it’s institutions to a large degree within my life, and being loathed (especially by man orchestrated Chuuurch) it has been well worth these trials in being able to move, understand, and function in Jesus Christ which few others can understand simply because I am graced by His work in my life through dependency, rather than being stumbled in my own understanding!
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.
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!
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.
Portals of Baal Bible Code
Luke 17:26-30 (NKJV)
Demonic forces have been at work in this world since the book of Genesis. Mankind has mixed with devils, built pyramids, done human sacrifices, all for the dark powers which came from the practices of abominations, in defiance of the Lord God of Israel.
Satanic practices have been, and still are, the norm for a fallen world. Even if you don’t believe such practices exist, as they are done in darkness and hidden from sight. It was predominantly the Anglo who spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a fallen world on the mission fields, starting with the 11 Apostles commissioned by God to go forth into the worlds “planting fields” exclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ, crucified and resurrected for sin. Western civilizations were soon blessed of God, as they tried to honor Him.
*Antichrist(s) are those who started with Christ, but became diverted to a different gospel (which there is none) as by definition, was coined by the Apostle John in * 1 John 2: 19 > They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. And 1 John 4:3 > “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the (their) flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come, and even now already is it in the world.”
These antichrists are apostate brethren in other words. The first overbearing legalistic systematic world church system, was, of course, Rome under Constantine, with Peter, (who was martyred in Rome for his faith) said to be the first Pope. However, what Jesus Christ actually said was, upon this truth (that Christ was the son of God) I shall build “my” church. Naming Simon as the Rock or in Latin Petrus.
Also, the scripture specifically condemns calling any man Father (as in God the Father) or Pope. Can you see the diversion away from the deeply personal, and spiritual connection to Christ and the Father? The rise of Papacy is indeed Antichrist by its very nature! The credentialing of the world has nothing what so ever, to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and orchestrating it as an institution of man, is a form of rebellion, which the scripture equates with witchcraft!
The underlying power of twisting the meaning of the scripture by false doctrines is Satan, the butcher of the brethren, the King of Babylon, and the mother of Harlots, within the false Church! Revelations Chapter 17.
The Reformation (Protestantism) I believe, struck a mortal head wound to the antichrist universal world church system: Revelation 13:3 > And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. The beast being Satan, and the world following him, after the healing. This appears to be “Popery” again, the mother of abominations, drunk on the blood of the Saints. It is also the blending together of the world’s religions in creation, of a one world order, the feet of iron and clay as found in Daniel,(multiculturalism) which will be destroyed upon Christ’s return for Judgment, the destruction of Babylon the great!
Daniel 12:4 > 4 but thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased.
Back to present day, man-devoid of honoring God…
In the 1930’s within the United Sates, Eugenics became the modern equivalent of building a society devoid of God. The goal was to build a super race, and systematically destroy any people’s who did not live up to specifications of a perfected humanity. The NAZI’s were accredited with the horrors of perfecting this so-called science, but, in reality, this “new world order” was being practiced all around the world within communism and democracies as well. Most everyone knows of the correlation between the Occult and the attempted development of NAZI weapons, at least, to some degree. Admiral Richard E. Byrd, once attempted to explore a great opening, leading to the subterranean cities of the antarctic, and said to be tracking the last of the NAZI U-Boats, (returning advance technologies by some). Admiral Byrd was commissioned with an entire fleet of troop ships, and aircraft which was reportedly destroyed by flying disks, (which the NAZI’s had dabbled in an attempt to build, yet were unsuccessful – at least on the large-scale). The natural resources in this area of antarctic, which gets 100 below zero, were said by Admiral Byrd, to have had vast in minerals, and fuel deposits, which would last for centuries.
It is my personal belief that UFO’s and aliens of another world, are demonic in nature, so I have cited the above Biblical history, in an effort to express an aspect, of the world powers in having an interest in the Satanic spiritual realm, to rule and reign. All secret societies that I am aware of, thrive on the dark powers of the demonic realm in one form or another. Jesus said that the LOVE of money was the root of all evil, and the world banks are no exception, nor any organization which derives its existence on the coins which belong to Caesar.
All forms of witchcraft are based on the ultimate quest for power, and the highest form of elitists’ are cognizant of this fact. It is too easy to simply dismiss these accusations as hysteria, or conspiracy theories so to deflect away from the truth, of what is really taking place away from the light of the world.
Margaret Sanger, a proponent of modern day eugenics, and birth control and worked with Planned Parenthood in preventing unwanted pregnancies. She did not like abortion, yet thought it was allowable in extreme cases. And although I have nothing against birth control personally, I do take issue with the eugenics, and the promotion of abortion for the undesirables. The justification for sterilization and abortion are not that far removed from what the NAZI Eugenics programs followed.
Have you ever wondered what the most horrible of experimentation on human beings in Auschwitz produced? Well, be assured that the results were not put to waste by the medical and even western intelligence services after the war. Again, power and control over the masses, furthering the findings of this research were not wasted. It appears that not only the aerospace technologies were modernized, but the dark medical technologies as well. Radio frequencies, microwaves, electronics, and macro technology, along with seeding, and even controlling the weather, are but a few technologies available and being experimented with for tracking, and even unknowingly used in mass media to exploit humanity for power and control (or to play God) over the masses. Subliminal messaging was said to be used in television at the end of the broadcast day, to promote allegiance to the Government, like in the 1988 sci-fi movie “They Live”
However, the aliens are not alien at all; but rather those who still practice a type of high-level worship of Satan, with demonic practices for power and control of the world, and its people. In my estimation perhaps even human sacrifice, specifically offering babies, or even baby parts to Satan, and changing the spiritual atmosphere all around us, is perhaps probably still done – like with the children offered to Molech found in Leviticus 18:21 > And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. These type of practices have been practiced since the days of Noah. Then God destroyed the earth the first time. Also, Pyramids and Ziggurats’ around the globe functioned in this manner early on, and supernatural powers which once may have existed even within the construction of these pagan temples, still defy logic even today.
Science has become the god of this world now, and man has become too smart to believe in hybrid humans & devils, having Nephilim by the daughters of men. (Hebrew: נפלים, Nefilīm). Demons today may undoubtedly take on more acceptable forms in the physical realm such as extraterrestrials perhaps. Too incredible to keep on reading? Well, ok, but the science god of today, does allow for such ancient practices to continue in one form or another. The “Man of Sin” Satan incarnate will be revealed most likely on the Seven Hills of Rome, by the “Mother of Harlots” who is the mother of systematic theologies about Jesus Christ, but not with him! This is the Chief antichrist (the Pope) who introduces Satan as God returned, performing many signs and miracles and worshiped as God upon the earth by Satan’s people (the wicked) who are not born again of spirit and of truth!
This (Satanic) new world order probably already exists behind the scenes, with Satan lying low until the Lord God of Israel allows him to appear. The man of sin will be revealed 2 Thessalonians 2:3 > 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. The great falling away has indeed occurred, the camp of the Saints has been overrun by Paganism, even in the western cultures which once stood on Godly principles. Nationalism to my way of thinking, must die away first and be replaced by Globalism. Admittedly I could be wrong in my estimation, but logic and current events would dictate that I am not. It seems to me that industrialized nations, once dominant in western cultures, must now be overrun, and perhaps even the 05% of white westerners and Christendom of the world are being targeted towards destruction.
Paganism once again runs rampant in civilized societies, and is imported into once sovereign lands by the thousands, in a humanitarian gesture towards everyone being equated, and blended together as one. And the Pope (the Chief Antichrist) promotes it. Did you know that according to Roman Catholic prophets, the present day Pope is predicted to be the last?
Whereas God, in contrast, separated the people of the earth into different tungs, regions, and ethnic groups. The Gospel went out to all the world predominantly by the “white west”, and now “Satan’s people” apologizes to the world for the white man, in bringing his civilization to what was once called savages. Communism coupled with liberalism (producing humanism), seem to have been the vehicle allowed by God, and used by Satan, as the political vehicle against the Christian informed west. Not only do “the wicked whites” apologize, but they sell out their own ethnicity for the blending together of any people s or lifestyle, which is in direct opposition to God’s natural order! This is why “so-called Christians” are said to be the greatest deterrent to globalism, and a unified world, with wickedness being equal to decency and righteousness. This is why the white male and his family unit (women and children) must be managed, put down and destroyed as a traditional force for “right and wrong” in today’s society. The easiest way to do this, is to label him as THE oppressor (by humanists) of “so-called minority groups,” and overrun his traditional culture with different people’s, rebel women, and children, to his complete overthrow, and so that putrid Pete the pervert & horrid Hellen the man hater, won’t feel bad for their deviant lifestyles.
This is so very evident today, in something which was once dear to my heart, the U.S. Armed Forces. Barrack Hussein Obama and his fellow humanists, some of which have been placed on the Supreme Court, now have moved to completely gut this once masculine institution, by making it effeminate, and perverse in nature to its core; anyone opposed to this “change that humanists believe in” is now marked as an extremist, and possibly prosecuted. And this doesn’t seem to be stopping until it putrifies all its men, to conform to his demonic principles at work, by means of PC new world order type of indoctrination, challenging the very thought process (thought control) of the majority of the young men who serve. These abominations are strictly forbidden in the scriptures. See: 1 Cor 6:9, Deut 22:5, Lev 20:13, 1 Tim 1: 9-11, Rom 1:27, 1 Cor 6:9-10, Rom 1:26-27, Gen 19:1-38, 1 Tim 1:10, Heb 13:4, Eze 16:49, Rom 1:26, Lev 18:22, Col 3:5, Rom 2:1, John 15:22, 1Sam 16:7, Psalms 34: 1-22, Prov 31: 3, Luke 6:37, Mark 10:6-9, 1 Cor 8:9, 1 Cor 6:1-20, Matt 11:23-24, Lev 18:19-24, Luke 19:1, Luke 17:34, to name just some of the major Bible texts on effeminate behavior in defiance of God and his order. The bottom line is – one cannot equate evil with good, as it soils what is pure and good, and destroys the life of an organism, or organization.
This is why the Lord God hates sin; and cannot accept it, as it destroys one’s spiritual life as well. You cannot mix the unrighteous with righteousness, (compromise) within the body of Christ, as this will destroy the sheep if not rooted out immediately. Jesus Christ is the gate (the entry point) to God the Father, for those whom the Father has chosen, and spiritually washed in his blood atonement. Human beings cannot change the nature of the sinner by way of preaching the Gospel, Bible teaching, or by law and behavioral modification. Wisdom shows that the only thing humanly possible to do, is to protect those who have been “given the chance” to enter into the Kingdom of heaven, which Jesus taught was within all “HIS” people, but must remain unspotted from the wicked, and false brethren, predominantly man orchestrated systematic theologies, the mother of harlots – church systems. Always remember that the scripture is addressing the spiritual condition of the bride of Christ, and no others.
I have a concerned brother for me, he sent me the scriptural texts of 2 Timothy 2: 3 – 4 Thou, therefore, endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man who warreth entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. This is indeed what the disciple is supposed to be following, as this world is but a spiritual battleground, with Satan sifting the heart of the brethren. So one must be careful not to allow themselves to be overcome by the battle raging all around us, the soldier for Christ must remain focused on the Lord, day in and day out. The testing’s of our lives, demand that we as good officers, and ambassadors for Christ be less concerned for our own lives, and more concerned with learning how to follow our Lord and Savior, not just by example like false brethren do, but by turning our attention towards our heavenly Father, the author and finisher of our faith, and not our own understanding or strength. However, I believe we must engage with the world as lead by the Father should we wish to overcome our adversary, in what we have been given to accomplish for His name sake within our personal lives. I have been told while practicing my engineering too – focus, focus, focus, while using my hyperactive mind. Focusing has always been difficult for me, especially academically. So I thank God that his work of Salivation is a spiritual work, (which I have nothing to do with), except I remain focused on Him alone in my life, and simply follow my Lord’s leadings! False brethren cannot do this, as they have never seen him nor known him. And it doesn’t matter how much Bible credentials one may have. An Elder is a MAN who has grown in spiritual understanding, not just Bible academics in an attempt to follow sound doctrines.
Being born with severe dyslexia, the Lord would not allow me to be accepted (until later) by institutionalized supposed centers of higher learning, predominately run today by humanists! However, by his grace, I learned one on one under a former Dean of a Bible College, holding a Doctorate of Divinity, Theology, and a Ph.D. in Pastoral Phycology for six years, while living in the City.
You see, God’s hand is not shortened in enabling his people, but the world, on the other hand, most often runs contrary to the plan for the life of a disciple. This is why we cannot get entangled with the cares of the world, nor the world’s people – without the strict leading by the Holy Spirit in presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Otherwise, our best of efforts are all but carnal in nature, and the Lord must work in between our ignorance of His leading, which I am very familiar with.
That’s what the world’s people are to an actual disciple of Jesus Christ!
Jesus said to the religious leaders of his day: “Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word”! This dear reader is a spiritual condition, and it has nothing what-so-ever to do, with one’s understanding of the scriptures!
Now, please note that Christians will say nowadays, “that is an Old Testament passage (and indeed it is), and we accept Jesus Christ as Lord”. Yet like in the days of Jesus, this matter is not just a matter of intellectual understanding, but rather a spiritual condition of the heart, soul, and spirit. If these things have not been made anew by the indwelling Holy Spirit, they are but academic in nature only!
This is precisely the reason that men CANNOT teach people into Christ, which is the habit of many, dare I say all the organizational church systems today.
I have been elect towards salvation since before the world began, and I think Satan knew it! “All of sundry” it seems, could clock this in me, and react accordingly, as a child of the Devil. This manifests itself as rejection by the world in the form of exclusion, and if pushed, in defiance of God within us.
It has nothing to do with how well someone can file the scriptures between their ears, but rather it is the basal natures which are in constant conflict! I have spoken many a time in my life being dismissed or even marginalized, even by those who are most close to me.
As a marine engineer, I once conveyed per datum, the exact condition of a marine casualty report, yet I was refused to be heard by the supervisor… He then looked over at another employee who repeated what I had just said, and then thanked him for the information! The other man was a friend of mine, and looked at me in amazement to what he had just witnessed!
That’s how it is as an actual disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, the truth (which is spiritual) will not go into people. This is also why Jesus said in John 15: 18-19 18 If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hated you. And Matthew 10:22 and ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endures to the end shall be saved. This is speaking about the ongoing work of salvation/sanctification in being transformed into Christ’s image by way of the cross, as well.
This type of rebellion is the nature of the flesh, striving against the Spirit of Truth – who is Jesus Christ, within his people. What fellowship does darkness have with light? Is the rhetorical question, and the answer is of course none. So, a believer is commanded to be able to tell just who is with the Lord, (by spirit not by doctrine or legalism) and who is not. Allow me to say that, this type of discernment is not normally learned overnight, and it takes mature men of God to be able to identify who is who, especially with those who are well versed in theology and scriptures, referred to by the Apostle John as anti-Christs, and enemies of the cross, by the Apostle Paul.
Still, with that being said, a disciple can still tell at a spiritual or subconscious level, the dismissive or hostile spirit within the wicked. It is my opinion that someone who is attracted to “Born Again” brethren, may well be lost, and later found by the Lord, by His grace alone, at some point in their life.
I have also noticed that no matter how hard I rant and rave at people to listen to me, I cannot force them to conform to what I have spoken, as it is not within my power to convince them, or show them something which I can see, but they cannot as they are blind, deaf and dumb, and the truth (Jesus Christ in Spirit) has no place in them.
This can also occur amongst Brethren, Husband, and Wife, who may be in error, or even rebellion, but that’s for another post.
Allow me to pick on myself as an example of being Holy as Christ was Holy.
For many, many, years I became trapped under the yoke of systematic theologies. My love for the Lord became misplaced by my thinking that I had to do something for Jesus! When in fact, He only wished for me to follow Him in Spirit and in Truth.
The natural mind or Western mind only accepts one’s credentials on a natural (intellectual) level, yet the Lord God does not function in this manner! A truly “born again disciple” merely follows the Lord Jesus Christ as he is led, and no more. For to do so is rebellion, and acting in independence from God within the flesh at the very best! This is what Scribes and Pharisees do, and have always done, independent of God the Father.
It is really quite simple to simply follow “our” Lord’s leading; if we have the nature of Christ within us. It becomes difficult when we get diverted from the Truth of God, only found by abiding in Jesus Christ ourselves, when we start looking to the world around us, instead of remaining focused on the Lord Himself. People who have never seen Him nor known Him, are incapable of discerning the difference as they are “spiritually dead” or separated from the Lord, because of sin.
Only a true follower of Jesus Christ in Spirit and in Truth will be able to digest the words I have written here today. The rest will flatly reject this post as ridiculous folly or foolishness as they have not the mind of the Lord. I have made the classic mistake of trying to teach people into the righteousness of Christ; this cannot be done, you cannot teach people into Jesus – no matter how good a Bible teacher you might be! Salvation is a work which God does alone, and NO amount of evangelism can change that!
Jesus said, ALL that the Father gave to Him would come, and conversely the ones who are not chosen of God, will not come to Salvation. Now, we do not know who are the lost sheep of Israel, nor the wicked (the ones who reject Christ) except by whether they receive or reject the Gospel, at some point in their lives. However, this problem is not our concern, but the Lords’.
A spiritually mature Elder and the brethren, in general, must be able to tell who is and who is not their brother, or risk being unequally yoked to the world’s people. The fellowship of believers must be only for actual believers – as pigs, dogs, and wolves will indeed attack the sheep, and the sheepfold is no place for such animals, as this is mutually destructive because of “the butcher” the destroyer of the faith!
I could go on and on with this topic, even quoting many a scripture reference, yet it would do no good as I would merely be intellectually wrestling with pigs, who are not in the good of Christ’s work within them, so it would be pointless to continue. The religious leaders at the time of Christ wanted to kill him, and later his disciples. The natural mind sees a disciple as being spiritually proud, or exclusive from their perspective, and they are indeed correct as people who are actually cut off from God “in what they can see”.
Yet having a love for the Truth, and Him alone is the only thing that will save you in continuation of following Him.
Good day, Roland
Take a look at this; Satan’s man in Satan’s world HQ is now advocating the mixing of Christ with the pagans, as if their demonic religion is equal or the same…..
