Knowing all about Jesus Christ in the Bible, is not the same as following Jesus Christ and entering into his heavenly kingdom now, by the “Spirit of Truth”. The “SPIRIT of error” (Antichrist) normally distracts most who will not “abise in the vine” who is Christ himself, or they never knew him to begin with! Systematic theologies (perhaps unknowingly) are a distraction from moving in the Lord oneself.

With all the recent uprising concerning Confederate monuments, it reminded me of the time I asked an old southern woman just why the south saw fit to rise up against the north. This is what she exhibited as to just why most southerner’s went to war as “Rebels” against the U.S. Government.
I would estimate roughly most people probably touch the lives of perhaps four generations. When I was still in my youth I sat with curiosity and amazement with a woman who had witnessed the Southern Troops camping on her father’s farm in Virginia.
She grew up to be a nurse at the turn of the century, but as she grew older her recollections became sharper on what she experienced as a child.
She was past 100 years old when I spoke with her, the oldest member of the Hampden Community in (Baltimore City, which is still portrayed as a southern town in the 1940’s encyclopedias) so I just couldn’t resist the chance to voice to her the question of “just why the south went to war with the North”.
To my shock, the old women drew up her fist and pounded on the table shouting “because the Federalists invaded Virginia, that’s why”!!!
If you think past all the emotional driven reactions to slavery, even now in the 21st century, you would realize that most of the south was poor, and predominately agricultural with allot being illiterate, and not even knowing any history as we are taught today. The point being that survival, and their families, were allot more important to most of them personally, than was the moral question concerning slavery by abolitionists.
Emphasising that only the rich plantation owner, and politicians, would have been invested in slavery in the southern states, and was seen as just another commodity of properties that they would suffer the loss of in loosing this war. Also remember, that the abolition of slavery was only applied to the Southern States to bolster the economic, military, and moral positions of the “Union” as it was politically and militarily expedient to introduce such legislation for the overall advancement of the north, while helping to ensure the destruction of the south.
While the majority of Southerners were driven by the idea of a “heavy handed federal government” who had crossed the line in undermining “states’ rights” (Confederacy) which the people felt threatened by.
Often historians seem to “overthink history” forgetting that the average person is but concerned about their personal situations, not unlike the politics of the day.
This is why a hundred year old women would still be infuriated to the point of pounding on a table and screaming at me: “because the Federalists invaded Virginia – that’s why”!
Let’s not overthink the past, why attempting to justify ones position in the current age, seems only rational to me.
This post is for actual brethren who know and follow Christ in spirit, in having a love for the truth that they might be saved. I have discovered that actual brethren are most rare today unlike the centuries past.
The reason is because the man orchestrated church systems (having a form of Godliness, but not the power thereof) have decided to teach Bible to none believers in “Christianizing families” who were never elect, or worse, elect that have been destroyed in their faith by following Church, or a “Pastor” who either knows not, or decided to take the broad road in loving the world, status, position or even salary more than perusing the Lord’s will in his life as a simple follower. In short has a desire to be seen as a leader.
Evangelism of the Gospel is to the lost sheep, and it is not for those who the Bible calls the wicked. What is missing in Evangelism today; that’s simple, discernment of the Holy Spirit of God! Churches use the Bible to teach what they consider to be the “Judging” of others, or condemnation as they have not spiritual Elders who by grace have learned who is who at the zoo!
Consequentially over the millenniums the Spirit of Antichrist has overtaken and surpassed actual followers of Christ, and actually has become a breeding ground for Satan to confuse and deceive actual brethren in using counterfeits to the truth – who is Jesus Christ himself! Then what normally occurs, is that young believers looking for actual fellowship and acceptance enter into this den of vipers, who are much more dangerous towards spiritual development (known as sanctification) in Christ. The western world, in confusing spiritual enlightenment with reason, consistently cranks out systematic theologies with different degrees of teachers (who often are naturally gifted) and destroy the “organic work of God” with the “Orchestrated, fore brained, works of men”!
All because spiritual discernment has been replaced with scholars using temple worship, which should have been replaced millenniums ago with knowing and walking with Christ ourselves! Of course the Spirit of Antichrist, (a different Gospel) really took hold with the building of the Roman Catholic Church by natural means, then often persecuting or even martyring the actual Ecclesia or Saints as heretics’.
Then of course the Lord God allowed the Reformation to take hold in using Martin Luther, who registered the gross corruption of the Biblical texts with what was occurring globally at that time. The Reformation provided much relief to a struggling people who wanted freedom from the oppression of Rome. Protestantism was born “in protest” to a systematic theology which enslaved men’s minds. Yet this was only really a half measure used to protect those being fulfilled in Christ. The Bible teaches to “mark them and avoid them” when refereeing to false brethren, it does not teach to protest their actions, nor to reform those who are not the Lords’ – but again this is wear actual discernment by the spirit of God comes into play; and not just doctrinal differences which can be discerned by the natural mind. Yet providentially, this is where we have come to in the course of human events, with few barley able to discern the spirits (1 John 4) without being butchered by intellectuals, who can only understand limited concepts of doctrines, as they are not with Him (Jesus Christ)!
My great blunder has been in freely sharing the things of God with “nominal Christians” (in name only) or with the “broad roader” who have forsaken their spiritual walk to be comfortable within the world, within systematic theologies. These are those which are known as “Antichrists” having started with us, yet became diverted to a different Gospel (Religion) independent of the Lord’s leading.
As an example, I would often naturally share the workings of demons, which I had experience with. Or express miraculous healings which I had witnessed within my time in street ministry. Yet such false brethren, (whom the church called Elders) had no concept, or even remotely understood what should have been an entry level understanding of the Spiritual world in walking with Christ! I was often shocked these men could not understand what I had just explained to them. Then wondered just why it was they seemed to have no clue as to the workings of such forces, which should have been elementary to even a young brother who walked in Christ!
The reason of course is that you cannot teach functioning in the Holy Spirit, or the workings of the spirit world to a blind man – no matter how much scripture which can be crammed into their natural understanding! Others would be much more insulent in taking me to task in using the Bible, yet no matter how well I was able to cross reference their challenge in using scripture, it was to no avail in delivering my point with clarity. The academically more proficient than myself, would always appear superior to me in Bible knowledge (and they may have been) yet when the Holy Spirit of God moved upon me, it was as child’s play “in battering them into at least a position of neutrality” although the lasting effect of such “pork wrestling” only produced “angry bacon” which reluctantly had learned not to challenge me for fear of being shown to be wrong, especially in public.
Yet more often than not, I could not speak, and was unable to function cognitively in such debates! This frustrated me to no end, as I knew the answers, but was unable to engage at such a level. The reason for this is that I operate by intuition and the inspiration of the Lord, whereas most men operate upon intellect and reason, and there can be no mutually beneficial outcome simply because the natural mind receives not the things of God, albeit they are biblically based.
This is why the scripture teaches (us) to not cast your (spiritual pearls) before swine: Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
I had never imagined this verse was speaking about those who claim Christ’s name – I had thought it was only speaking about the ungodly peoples (wicked) who had no love for the truth. Yet the deeper truth in this passage is actually referring to those who will not, or cannot, submit themselves to Christ, as they have not been born again of Spirit!
The church system teaches to confess the sinners prayer with your mouth, and bingo you are born anew of spirit. This is only true for the one who the Lord has decided to do a work in, *and the most forgotten part is to follow Christ above all else, as to be transformed from a sinner to a man or women of God.
Rev 17-18 : Drunk on the blood of the Saints and the Martyrs of Jesus, is the consequence of the “Spirit of Antichrist” many of which started with Christ, but became diverted to the world, or more specifically the world’s church systems. Which were devised by Satan, to rip and devour the actual sheep desperately in need of rescue by a (the) good shepherd.
I realize this is a most sobering post, and how I wish there were actual Elders (men of God) who would help stem the tide of such destruction! As for me and my household we will “follow” the Lord, as we are now much more than servants (because of Christ) but actual Sons and Daughters of God!
The so called, “servants” can stick to their temple worship which will be ultimately destroyed once again by Christ’s second coming!

How on earth did Satan manage to build such a vast evil beast as the church that you see out there? How did he enslave so many when actually he has no power of his own?
Published on Jul 19, 2017
What are these ones going to do when Satan is revealed?
Basing ones belief system on the Bible, although most admirable and noble, has never replaced having the “enigma machine” so to speak, to properly interpret its meanings!
There is a divine reason for this, namely the texts are inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, for the Lord God’s actual followers. It is not written to natural man, so that they can attempt to decipher it independent of the Holy Spirit’s leading! To try to do so, is to actually insult to the Lord God of Israel, and denies a dependency upon the Lord Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross! This is why the Apostle Paul called many “Enemies of the cross” (Philippians 3:18) and is of the Spirit of Antichrist, which only moves independent of Christ!
This is why doing Bible teachings independent of the Lord, is to try and take command and control of God in our natural or carnal understanding, for texts which is only understood properly by the revelation of the Holy Spirit of truth. Inevitably, large portions of truth indeed are understood (in principles’) by men’s natural understanding, yet this does NOT make them actual followers of Jesus Christ: as the Lord’s workings in that individual’s life is required, and not just a head full of doctrines.
The western “Church Systems” since the Emperor Constantine, has operated in this natural manner of using scriptural texts in contriving a system which “they can control” called Christianity, or Christendom, which actually thrives and functions in operating independent of the Lord God. It is Satan’s greatest work since the Garden of Eden, and a natural counterfeit of the TRUTH – who is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, and his completed work on the cross.
Of course one could argue my viewpoint as a means to justify themselves, but in actuality it make no difference as to whose name is actually found in the “book of life”, and whose is not!
And in closing, allow me to say that signing up for a “spiritual insurance policy” from the lake of fire, while using the name and work of the Lord Jesus Christ, has never guaranteed anyone so-called “eternal security” which is just another doctrinal belief system, devised by men using scriptural texts.
Nay, the perfect work of Christ in someone, is simply done by the grace which the Lord God has elected to do in separating “ his people” from sin, and giving them a new spiritual identity in Christ by His work alone, and that “we” have a love for the truth (who is Jesus Christ) so that His continual work “in us” may be completed; less we become a cast away, who is fit only as a dead dried up branch who would not or could not abide in the vine, and is ultimately to be cast into the fire and burnt.
All of these things which I have pointed too, are speaking of one’s spiritual condition for those who have been given the “chance to become” the sons and daughters of God in Christ… But few that it will be who enter, and even a Bible based belief systems is no substitute to actually abiding and moving in Jesus Christ; the way, the life, and the truth.
I write this tonight as I am reminded of a brutal election, and many Pastors took the position that Christians should not concern themselves with the “things of the world”.
As a principled conservative, who believes in a Lord God honoring culture, I feel it is only right to cast a vote for the representative who will best represent my views.
Now of course I do realize, that the Lord God of Israel is still on His throne and will allow or disallow whomever and whatever he chooses to do, and it is my ultimate goal to indeed follow Him first in all that I do, with His leading in my life to the best of my ability.
What I do not comprehend, is if I vote for the one who most closely represents the majority of my personal convictions, how than could I be wrong? If my representative in this fight would lose an election, that would not diminish my faith in the Lord in the least. Neither would it diminish who I am.
So why are so many condemned as not being a true follower of Jesus Christ, being that they cast a conscientious vote, and some are condemned for not voting as well? To not vote is a matter of the will, as is the decision to vote. But since I am speaking about voting as being worldly, allow me to continue with my assessment. To me it is an absurd position to be condemned for voting, even if that leader turns out to walk in wickedness at a later date. That would also have no reflection on me or the principles which I hold dear as a person.
Rather it is my feeling that it is the one who does not know who they are, or what they believe in is the issue. Many of which are being tossed around by the every wind of change, the newest viewpoint or teaching, the polls, these are the most ungrounded and unprincipled types of people to me, often projecting onto others a type of false guilt, for being involved in the marketplace of ideas.
If one is so disgusted by politics and politicians, then don’t vote, don’t hold an opinion about the world stage, or events of your time. Be a fatalist if you like, and just trust in your Lord, and simply move forward with your life. That is fine with me, but how dare this type of characters cast aspersions on other brethren, who may be involved in their community’s policies, of being less than committed to following the Lord in all good conscience. To my way of thinking, that is passing the wrong type of judgment, while projecting oneself to being beyond reproach within their personal spiritual walk.
Of course no man, no matter how well-intentioned, will ever be able to obtain flawless governance (as only God could do that). Yet the real question is what is the character of a leader, and how well can they complete a given task. Leadership is measured by results, and destructiveness and waste has never been the sign of a good leader. So if you are fortunate enough to have a say in who will be a leader, (and many do not) why then would you sit ideally bye especially when given a direction you don’t agree with?
I feel we are to be good stewards of what we have been given, extending outside of just our homes, to “down the street” and beyond in all we have been made stewards of. Speaking as a retired military man; in no small way within our Republic should we not be proactive in protecting what we have been given.
The bottom line is, if you feel led to vote, vote, if not then take a pass, but lets not confuse discernment with judgment. Jesus said to render unto Caesar what was Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s, when he was being trapped by the Pharisees. So there is no shame in us doing the same.
It is not my intent to pick on Steven Lawson, or any particular person, or church group, I am simply using this photo to speak to a much broader problem… You cannot teach people into Jesus Christ, it is His soveriegn work by grace alone!
As the TRUTH, is only accessed through the person of Jesus Christ (not just doctrines about him), only because of his atonement on the cross, must be addressed.
I feel particularly qualified to speak on such Reformed teachings, as I was raised in this aspect concerning the Bible and the faith.
My #1 point being, that if one has actually started with Jesus Christ with initial repentance, they do indeed have a personal connection with the Father. If they can’t hear Him, they either are too immature spiritually (not knowing they can hear) , or don’t really know Him; as you cannot follow someone you don’t actually know, or decided to walk in independence of.
Although many use the Bible as a base for their belief system(s) and doctrines; simply adhering to the scriptures, has never made natural man a follower of the Lord God. This is why, in particularly, Jesus had the greatest problems with the scribes and Pharisees in the days he walked the earth.
Audibly hearing the Lord God is indeed possible, “when and if” He decides to speak in such a manner. Yet under normal circumstances, brethren are simply led by the Spirit of God (His voice within them) in various ways: (which also includes time and circumstances – just like the Lord speaks to the natural, or unregenerate man).
#2. Now since Satan is the ultimate counterfeiter in all that the Lord may do, many are led astray, or deceived by a “different spirit” than the Lord God’s Holy Spirit. This is why a disciple is told to discern the “spirits” and hold to the one who is genuine (1 John 4).
To the western or natural mind “SPIRITS” are a ridiculous concept, so they are simply discarded, or “paid lip service to”, for the simple reason they are found within the scriptures. Normally what I call “Bible worship” happens because of a lack of spiritual understanding among the brethren, or they have never “Seen Him nor Known Him” (in Spirit). So, simply following the scriptures, can become a type of surrogate to Jesus Christ – which can be achieved in the natural (flesh), instead of actually “entering in” with Jesus Christ on a spiritual level. This is what the Apostle John referred to as an Antichrist, and the Apostle Paul referred to as an enemy of the cross, like in the book of Galatians. When taken in contexts, an Antichrist is not against Christ per say, but is rather a replacement to Christ – which is another Gospel completely!
The other problem which emerges with actually following Jesus Christ in Spirit and in truth; is emotionalism often coupled with poor doctrinal understanding, is often mistaken for spirituality by the spiritually immature, with soulish experiences (emotions) confused with “the Spirit”, or more dangerously those who are deceived by “another spirit”. This is why most Churches cannot discern between the human Spirit, or the human Soul (they think it the same), not to mention the Holy Spirit of God.
So, it is much easier to teach Bible Doctrines from a man orchestrated school or organization, than it is to actually know, follow, and commune with the Father, through the Lord Jesus Christ!
This is the crux of the issue with all that calls itself by the name of the Lord today; they are enemies of the Cross. Lucaslabradorx

Then you can listen and decide for yourself the contexts of all that was said…
*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.
The founding fathers, although many were associated with the Mason’s, and admittedly have designed Masonic undertones (witchcraft) in the layout of the capital, were visibly built using much Roman architecture to reflect the Roman republic, prior to Augustus Caesar in 27 BC.
This new Constitutional government was designed to focus on individual liberties, without the interference of an all-powerful and oppressive central government, or Monarchy’s so common in the old world for centuries.
Federalism, although misunderstood today, is actually based on the limitations of a centralized government. Federalism was designed to put limits on power, by a breakdown of powers in using checks and balances in the different offices created to protect liberties, rather than rule by sheer unadulterated power over the people. It is limited by State powers, Counties, and local Municipalities’. Anti-federalist, (used to traditional European rule) debated the Federalist’s years prior to legal bills being voted upon, and then finally ratified by congress into the U.S. Constitution.
The objective of this new system of governance by the founders was to take advantage “by design” the wickedness of men, by instituting checks and balances’ of powers. This was to become the grand American experiment never attempted before, which eventually changed the world forever, in the course of human endeavor and productivity, whose people enjoyed an unparalleled freedom.
In the beginning, the “new” United States of America, would not allow foreign governments and banks to manipulate their currency, as it was considered a direct part of the people’s labor and considered subservient only to the people, like their newly formed government was designed to be.
America was not immune by attacks and being manipulated by foreign powers. During the American Civil War, world banks and secret societies including the Jesuits in Rome, attempted to undermine and destroy the union, and Protestantism, as to possess and reap the benefits of a very fertile land and its people.
Abraham Lincoln understood that divide and conquer techniques were being applied from all those who would benefit from the nation’s demise. Slavery was always understood to be one of the greatest devises used in opposition to “a more perfect union” as Lincoln put it, since the inception of this new Constitutional form of Government. The Emancipation Proclamation was proclaimed by executive order by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863 to the rebellious states for military reasons, and because he believed abolition of slavery was the only sound and just solution within the Constitution.
Nowadays, what I consider to be a lot of half-baked, and half-truth conspiracy theories exist today upon the internet. Some are purposely put forth for political reasons, and others are a conglomerate of different historical facts and figures which tend to produce self-fulfilling prophesies and ideals, while still others are done in ignorance, and an out of contexts understanding.
Relativism as taught in many a progressive school, has also produced a blurred understanding of events and powers associated with the “American Experiment”, which in my view, has been more successful than any other form of Government ever produced by humanity in the history of the world.
This is not to say that a believer in Jesus Christ, in any way shape or form should worship such man orchestrated institutions, yet perspective does demand that they be placed in balance within the fallen world.
Jesus said that his kingdom was not of this world, and it certainly is not, so we must focus on him alone within our daily lives and not be distracted by earthly events. Yet if we are to examine earthly institutions, it is only appropriate to do so with a balanced perspective while understanding truth from twisted truths, (otherwise known as lies).
May the Lord God of Israel bless you with the light in which to understand all things within perspective.
This will come as a shock to most, yet I have painfully learned about the seriousness or should I say gravity of actually abiding in Christ throughout my life in the following article.
It is natural for a child of God to try to get along with the world, and the worlds people.
Yet because you have been chosen out of the world, it is impossible to ever be accepted by the world’s people, even within one’s own family. You try very hard to be nice and friendly with folks, yet you will never be accepted by them as the large majority of the world are actually children of the devil, and you will never achieve any type of genuine fellowship with them.
18 If the world hate 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 hateth you…
We are taught to be friendly and accepting to others, and as much as leis within you, be at peace with all men – Romans 12:18, but never allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of security, in thinking you are a part of them. Again, it is only natural to try to fit in, yet this is extremely detrimental to a child of God’s spiritual life with Christ, as compromise with the world is destructive to following the truth, who is Jesus Christ within us.
I have found that one of the biggest obstacles to walking with Christ, is the near look-alike of system religions (systematic theologies) as this is also a part of the world, which is a detraction for actually abiding in Christ oneself. Young believers will find it hard to understand such reasoning, as false brethren adopt Bible doctrines, and even “experiences of God” as their own. Yet they have never seen Him nor known Him.
1 John 3:6 No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.
(Jesus is speaking about walking in the spirit of truth, the Holy Spirit, who was yet to come).
Acceptance by the world is enmity against God, you cannot serve two masters, yet MOST who have genuinely started with Christ, take the broad road away from Him, in an effort to be comfortable in the world. To a very large degree these broad road Christians have been pressured by society (Church) to conform to loving the world and its people, over actually following Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth.
We all naturally want acceptance by the world, yet you cannot compromise which is to prostitute the Holy Spirit of God, for the Spirit of Antichrist which dominates this world and the world’s church systems. (Rev 17 – 18).
This is why it is written in 1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Most people think that the “Word of God” is the Bible, loosely speaking the texts is the divinely inspired writings composed of letters profitable for reproof and correction, written to the brethren who are spiritual Israel. However, more distinctly the “Word of God” is a living word which is found in the hearts of those who follow the Lord God of Israel in their “heart of hearts” – simply because they love Him above all else.
John 10:27-29 (KJV) 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
At this point, (because this is a blog post) most will spiral downward into arguing theology and doctrines: yet that is NOT my point in writing this post today. Rather it is to show that the “Word of God” to me was found in a simple texts written in the 1880’s by J.H. Merryman, called THE UNITED STATES LIFE-SAVING SERVICE.
“The Lord spoke this to me” sometime after nearly drowning in the Surf at Ocean City, MD., nearly in front of the U.S. Life Saving Museum: a short time after serving my time with the U.S. Coast Guard overseas. I was also very interested in the historic maritime trade and working for the Baltimore Maritime Museum, under command of Capt. Robert Cooper of the Lightship Chesapeake. At the time a floating and operating ambassador for Baltimore City – Recreation and Parks.
A true Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, will understand that our Lord knows our hearts, and the particulars of our lives which will get our attention! It is NOT simply religion we follow, but a living being who speaks to those who know Him, the Lord Jesus Christ!
The Following is from page 12 of by J.H. Merryman’s book, a passage which very personally helped to grow my walk, in experiencing and walking with Christ.
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 ?

Don’t let them fool you. Remember the facts.
John 4:24 (KJV)
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Most of those who start with the Lord never register that once the body of believer’s accepts those of a different spirit (1 John 4) within their midst, it is just a matter of time until the spirit of antichrist overruns the fellowship.
Satan, the father of lies, seeks to destroy any actual work of God, by “replacement therapy” that is he replaces the spirit of truth, who is Jesus Christ – with a look alike spirit, or false replacement spirit which is religious in nature.
Remember I am speaking about the spiritual dimension here, and not simply doctrinal or intellectual understanding, which is based on the Bible, rather than dependency upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, who is the Truth of God made manifest to the elect, by the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.
John 1 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
In the beginning was the word – the “Word of God” this is speaking about the Lord himself, obviously to most, so how is it that a printed texts on a page (Scripture) becomes The Word of God, as commonly espoused? That would be impossible as the Bible was not present in the beginning. It is but a record about God, Satan, and humanity, although divinely inspired.
The Bible is but confirmatory to us who stand on “The Rock”, yet it is not “The Rock itself”, that title is only ever given to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
At this point many will start thinking theologically, even checking my doctrine against the scripture, which is fine, however let me remind you again that I am speaking about the spiritual world, and the ins and outs of spiritual deceptions given by the master of deception, Satan who is intellectually superior to any human being.
So rather than leaning to our own natural understanding, we must instead push in with Christ in Spirit and in Truth!
Rather than becoming mired in thought, I write this post today with the hope the reader will understand why most churches – “all” institutionalized churches eventually, lead towards spiritual death. That’s right, it is because no matter how well-intentioned ministers may be, that (perhaps unknowingly) they have taken on the role of Jesus Christ himself in the hearts of many followers!
This is the “Spirit of Antichrist” which is consistently used of Satan since the death and resurrection of the Lord, beware!
I see a lot of Bible based doctrines attempting to be used in support of Dec 25 in celebrating Christ’s birth. This is a Pagan festival painted with Christian names and dates. Luke 2:1-20 (as an example) merely recognizes Christ’s birth, (probably in the spring of the year) yet as a disciple we are NEVER instructed to do “Christian Religion” about any dates or times, even when using the Bible.
You will remember that only the Galatians ever celebrated dates and times, and the Apostle Paul burned their ears for it. He did this for a very good reason, so as not to become distracted away from the TRUTH, who is only found by abiding in Christ the true vine, and not an “antichrist religious’ spirit” which was created by Satan in using natural understanding to divert people away from actually walking with their Lord, each and every day to include the Sabbath, if one decides in his conscience to keep it.
There is a very fine edge between walking in the spirit of truth, in dependence upon the Lord, and walking independent of him, especially when caught up in doing religion about him, but not actually following him. This is in part because some of those who have made a profession of faith, have never “entered in” with him, and even more have never seen him nor known him.
It is my firm belief as in Revelation 13: that the second beast must become as the first beast, “Christian Universal Religious” the same Spirit of Antichrist as started in the Church of Rome. I can only speculate this is because it is Rome’s seven hills (Revelation 17 a Pagan temple rebuilt) who the mother of Harlots and her daughters will reveal Satan, and the Luciferian doctrines which powers in the world worship, (Revelation 18) so that Satan may take his very short reign upon the earth and then Babylon is destroyed by the “SWORD” of His mouth, and the “BRIGHTNESS” of His coming!
Additionally, the world will worship “Satan as God” while performing many signs and wonders, and only the true elect will NOT BE deceived of this very powerful and false spirit, whose only wish is to be put above the Lord God’s throne so he can be worshiped as such!
Be on guard against this “Spirit of antichrist” which has saturated “the Church”, and only continues to grow in strength within the “false vine” – until Satan is revealed and no longer has need for these whores, who are drunk on the blood of the Saints, and martyrs of Jesus!

Henry T. Blackaby – was only half right, as he produced courses and books trying to teach a lot of un-regenerates into Jesus Christ.
That cannot be accomplished by human efforts, nor will teaching the Bible to false brethren, ever produce anything good!
Time is like a river.

Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote:
The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio.Â The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.
A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers”
have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.
You will never again out-vote these people.Â It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away.Â It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard.Â The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order.
The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.
Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness…
: Got the guts to pass it on? You bet I do and just did….
This transcript is from an e-mail I received, I don’t know it’s origins, but felt it was worth posting.
Jesus said, render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and God what is God’s. In my words; Christ is saying we must make a distinction (daily) about our worldly decisions which HE allows in our lives.
Deciding upon the lesser of two evils is a constant for us as we live and breathe in a fallen world. Following Christ is about how much we allow our hearts to be gripped by earthly concerns, instead of living by faith. If we follow Christ, he will show us what we need to do individually.
I have built my life by attempting to follow my Lord, Jesus Christ. But, the whole of the “moral but corrupted man orchestrated church system” (a form of godliness but not the power thereof) follows another spirit, what the Apostle John coined as “the spirit of antichrist” – and Paul called enemies of the cross (on a personal level).
This “Antichrist” terminology is confused with being “against Christ” but the truth be known, it is really a replacement for Christ in the lives of those who have started with him in spirit – and those nominal Christians who have not. Satan uses this replacement to destroy the walk of the actual ecclesia by using those who may have started with Christ, yet became diverted “to another gospel” (how they view doctrines and beliefs) rather than simply following Christ in obedience to His voice within them. In short, these are people wishing to be god’s to others, specifically when using the Bible to try to justify their independence from God, while attempting to take on the role of “Lord” to others. Psychology calls these type of controlling people “sociopathic”, but that’s another subject in and of itself.
Crushing a young brother or sister in the Lord is not difficult for these “Scribes”, some knowing every twist and turn of the scriptures – just like their Father the Devil! This is why Elders must be Men who Know how to Follow Christ in Spirit and in Truth, and not just a system of doctrines and theology used in independence of God by Satan, and his people.
This being crushed to conformity to the world takes on many forms, not the least which is religion, even when claiming the name of Christ. This is the MOST DANGEROUS to an actual child of God, as it is designed specifically to deceive the actual “would be” followers of Christ, (in Spirit and in Truth).
Personally, my Spirit has been crushed again and again by the “Spirit of Antichrist”, shaking my confidence that I could move and function in the “things of God” on my own. This is how Jesus Christ intends it to be for the Sons and Daughters of God, to the Father. This is why it is written there is but one moderator between God and Man, the Lord Jesus Christ!
Mercifully, the Lord God of Israel knows full well of the deceptive spirit of Antichrist, and Her whore daughters as referenced in Revelation 17-18 for example. So, what the Lord attempts to do for his elect, is to try to show them the truth in every situation they may fall into unaware. Of course this is all dependent upon the heart (good ground) of the believer, and secondarily in having real fellowship with real men of God… Not just “Churchmen” or Biblicists” but real followers of Christ, who truly know and understand His workings (intimately). Many “Biblicists” appoint themselves to these type of “positions of leadership” yet, “have never seen Him nor known Him”, via the Holy Spirit – who cannot sin.
Brethren, are you tracking what I am attempting to write; be not deceived by “every spirit” who claims to be the Lord’s, but test the spirits and hold to Him which is real. (1 John 4).
By Brother Roland
How sad that so many people who begin with us find that their Christian life is messed up just by lack of understanding, and getting embroiled with the grey monster.
Two niches, one of servanthood and one of sonship……
So many Bible doctrines exist today, that it is only the Lord God himself that can reveal the total unadulterated truth of the scriptures! Attempting to gain understanding of the scriptures is but futile when one moves in independence from the Lord in the flesh, this is why Paul called these brethren enemies of the cross!
