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!

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.
That is what the Head Pastor asked me in leadership training, when I requested and passed the assembly of Elders over a decade ago. I was a founding member of this church, and had given of myself and my personal finances in its founding to a large measure, but that was OK because it was from the heart. I had spent six years under a man with a D.D., THD., and PHD in “Christian” Psychology. I was able to breeze through all the subject matter, and even completed in detail any subject matter forgotten.
I have never held an academic memory of Church history and Bible, although the Lord allowed me “total recall” of all the things I had learned in six years of devoted ministry study, when I was a young man equipped in street ministry. I never intended to embarrass anyone, my objective was to simply contribute what I had learned to the body of Christ in finding my niche, or so I thought.
To my personal amazement even I, could not believe what was delivered from my mouth to the ears of Ivy League educated men of the highest caliber. Yet the truth be told it was not me at all, but the moving of the Holy Spirit of God upon me. I exclaimed to the Pastor privately the Pastoral Vision which I had received after my marriage. The only thing I can remember is seeing his mouth moving in response, yet I could not hear as the Holy Spirit dumped upon me like a great waterfall, and it was all that I could do to continue standing upright!
I can still remember the shock and awl on those men’s faces as they clamored, sought council among themselves and reluctantly concluded that I was factually correct. I had really expected to be welcomed to this level of fellowship with open arms, and was thrilled to have obtained such a status and position for a man who had struggled with severe dyslexia as a child. Yet utter rejection was all that I experienced by men whom I had considered brothers.
I really thought with all the gifting’s I had been rated with in the denominational testing for office, I could finally find a place of belonging, especially as a man that I had joined the church with fared no better than myself in his understanding, yet consistently clowned around during theological teaching. Yet the Pastor liked this man, and he was moved from the diaconate to an elder’s office. He had even suggested me to be tried at leadership, probably because I could pass all his courses without cracking open his course book.
It may sound as if I am proud, bitter or disgruntled with the Church, and that is a fair enough assumption; yet the problem is actually much deeper than my personal feelings in this matter. You see the problem is not my flesh, but rather the Spirit of Antichrist which opposes the simple sheep like spirit within me. It is the age old rejection of the Holy Spirit of God within me, opposing the proud spirit of the world normally present within others, be it religious (as in this case) or otherwise.
The world loves their own, and rejects the spirit of the Lord who is sometimes found within others. They will hate you, because they first hated me, Jesus said. And the actual place in which you will experience Satan is within his people, and it is much worse if they have learned up a head full of Bible doctrines -which do not apply to them!
1 John 4 Commands that the children of God be able to discern the spirits, yet in Western cultures we are taught only to reason using our minds, and intuition which is spiritual discernment is most often dismissed, or even worse confused with the wrong type of judging. Yet we must learn and discern who our actual brethren are, and who are not lest our faith be destroyed!
And the faith destroying systematic theologies that actual brethren expect to learn from, and fellowship with, are actually twice the children of the devil because of being taught Bible doctrines without Christ!
It destroys the confidence that an actual follower of Christ can discern and walk with the Lord on an actual spiritual level, instead of just having head knowledge. This is the major reason the Holy Spirit came upon me as a great waterfall that day; as the Pastors seminary taught words would have helped to destroy the work which the Lord was actually doing in me!
Most of us would never have imagined that the “Church” would be a destroyer of our confidence in Christ, and our ability to walk alone with Him. Yet that is indeed the case, like in the Galatians Church who Paul wept for, Satan forms a kind of surrogate to Jesus Christ. Or who John called Antichrists _”ones who had started with the Lord like us – but became diverted to a different Gospel” (Church Systems and Priests) who can never replace the Lord Jesus Christ as our moderator between the Father and ourselves!
Anyone who assumes such a position is actually a heretic of the highest order, but are normally deaf and blind to the fact that they are actually taken on a destructive role of the Devil unknowingly, as they have not been given the light to see. Rather they think they are serving God in the name of Jesus Christ by orchestrating ministry functions and institutions which they have done without commissioning, and in continual independence from the Lord, who is Spirit and Truth.
In others words to sum up in a short sentence what I would like to put over: is that men use the Bible without (Spiritual) knowledge of the Lord, and so in essence are following Satan, who also uses the Bible, theology and doctrines independent of the Lord!
Now do you see why it is so very important to discern what spirit a person is of? It is not the words that they may use, correct or even incorrect teaching, but whose “spiritual camp” they are connected with!
The False Church *Revelation 17-18 (Mother of Harlots and her daughters) who are drunk on the blood of the Saints, is actually who I am speaking about – and most don’t even clock it!
Beware, and learn how to tell who’s who; or otherwise you will spend a lifetime in casting your pearls before swine!
I am 58 years old now, and have discovered I’ve been doing just that… And then discovered that most those who claim Christ’s name are mostly enemy, and I wondered why I had always felt rejected and ravaged by such pigs!

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?

Why do we not have confidence to act as we should….?
I have undertaken years of training in Bible doctrines over my lifetime, yet what I have discovered is it is ONLY the workings of the Holy Spirit abiding in Jesus Christ which make it possible to understand what being transformed from a sinner to a saint entails.
Bible doctrines and theology learned up by natural understanding, are but worthless and futile in growing into a man of God. This is why Jesus taught that the greatest within the kingdom of heaven are as little children, totally dependent upon their heavenly Father.
The Apostle John first coined the term “Antichrist” as those “who had started with us” yet became diverted to another gospel. The Galatians’s were such people who Paul wept over for having started with Christ (in Spirit) yet were distracted by man orchestrated religion – what we call Christianity today.
This is the reason in which I struggle to make the point in this post.
Theology is often used to supplant God, in simply walking by faith as a little child. This is the nature of sin within us; to try and understand independent of being shown by our Lord! Arguments in every form and flavor is the result, thus destroying the faith walk via our natural understanding.
Denominations, many based upon their understanding of the scriptures is the result. Whereas with the early brethren, they were directly shown the truth by revelation, moving by inspiration of the Lord. The scripture has always been confirmatory, and not predominant to the Lord, which over the centuries it has morphed into – just like when the scribes and pharisees’ walked the earth!
Contrary to reformed teachings, being born again of spirit (for the elect) is an ongoing process, it includes a new birth of course, by those chosen of God, or sewn into the world as wheat some might say, as seen in Luke 8:4-15 as an example. Jesus himself taught the disciples this parable, it needs no interpretation as to what He is saying. Additionally the scriptures are only ever written to the people the Lord God of Israel has chosen to do a work in. The scriptures do not concern outsiders (the world and his wife) also known as the wicked. They only ever are discussing the road to life to those who are given the chance to become the sons and daughters of God.
I was drilled in Calvinism most all of my life, by so called authorities… Yet the TRUTH (who is Jesus Christ) be known to me, I have spent years unlearning my untrue understandings taught by the most well intentioned “Ministers”!
I was raised in a “Christian household” and have witnessed family members move in the power of the Holy Spirit, at least initially… Sadly they have been diverted to a “load of old dead church” instead! Many had seen the power of the Lord, and Satan at work supernaturally. It was not a matter of convincing them of the reality of the spiritual world, as most had already seen it.
Rather it is a matter of “having a love for the truth that you might be saved” in the long term – for eternity. That is the “Good Ground” which Jesus was speaking about, who abide in the vine, pruned, or cut off and burnt! Now at this point, normally some pin head will jump in and ask if I am denying “Eternal Security”, which is another way of asking if I am denying the work on the cross of Christ! I AM NOT. Yet I do bring into question, just who is, and who is not in Christ “NOW”: as that is the state you will die in, with Him or against Him!
The Lord used my near death experience of my heart attack, while in Army water survival training, to show me I was with Him, as Jesus pressed up against me shoulder to shoulder as this world went black! As I continued in cardiac arrest being revived half a dozen times or more, I could look down upon my own ambulance in perfect clarity of mind and vision!
At that point a person understands they are but in a temporary, trapped within an imperfect dwelling! I can also testify to the fact that all of heaven and earth somehow seem available to one’s understanding just by inferring for one’s edification… Although it is beyond my human understanding, to try to explain this in greater detail.
The normal Christian life (that of a disciple) is also able to grasp spiritually without deception these realities as they live and breathe, albeit obscured to some degree, by our physical existence within the body physiologically. Yet again, all the seeing and understanding in the universe comes to little affect on the natural man, as truth has no place in him. I am reminded of the verse found in Luke 16:30-31 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Now, most basic Bible students understand this is a reference to Christ raising from the dead in overcoming death. And yet most will refuse to believe what they have seen with their own eyes in seeing death defeated.
So there is no sense in arguing doctrines, or trying to convince someone of the work of Christ in using apologetics as an example, as even this type of evangelism will have no effect on the human heart, unless the Father has prepared it for such a seed. Then and only then, it becomes a simple question of who loves the Lord above the world, position status and wealth.
I am convinced that most churches water down the gospel to be comfortable within the world and its people, wear as the real gospel of following Christ alone above all else cost you dearly, and often bites wear you would rather not be touched. So, I am convinced that 2 Timothy 4:1-4 speaks about such apostasies, which the majority of believers would never imagine affects them!
4 1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

What are these ones going to do when Satan is revealed?
I was in a slightly heated debate yesterday concerning the Bible passage about the meaning of the ten virgins found in Matthew 25: 1-13. The reason for this is NOT an academic reason concerning doctrinal understanding, rather it goes much deeper than that to the heart of people’s “eternal security “ as it brings into question at a personal level the question whether or not they actually have, or are following Christ!
The Lord showed me this, this morning as I awoke. Now then, in making such a statement “most” will immediately be offended, as this revelation was received by me, by way of the cross, which is always offensive to “enemies of the cross” and is indeed coined in Scripture as the “offence of the cross”. This is why Jesus said that you will be hated of all men for my namesake. Even those who claim to be followers of him, but have never seen him or known him spiritually, and is what the Bible is all about, in being written to actual disciples, who actually have a living relationship with the Lord God of Israel!
I have noticed that one of Satan’s counterfeit to this, always conceived and promoted in the mind and always operating in the natural, independent of the Lord, is Bible based beliefs’ about “physical Israel” as opposed to “spiritual Israel” – (the elect) whom the Bible is actually addressing, always turns into am intellectual or theological discussion by defaulting to the natural mind, instead of being led by the Holy Spirit of God in Christ. The natural mind receives not the things of God, so if I have lost you it is not because of some emotionally driven understanding that I have, but rather, you cannot receive on a spiritual level, shall I call it the “wavelength” which the Lord actually transmits on, to his actual followers.
So then, physical Israel must then become the focus of prophecy, as that can be understood to some degree within natural understanding on the world stage. I see allot of posts on Israel and the United States as an example within so called Christian blogs, video transmissions, books and so forth, yet this is all irrelevant, as it is simply leaning to natural understanding; which an actual disciple shouldn’t give a hang about, as it is all based in carnality and human pride.
I am using this passage in Matthew 25 to show that fallen carnality is most often used when attempting to teach the Bible nowadays, it is showing how men will not endure sound doctrine, but would rather have their ears tickled by what they wish to hear! In the beginning of the texts it plainly states [Matt 25: 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.]
The Kingdom of heaven is speaking to, the Kingdom of heaven which is inside of all those who are with the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. The Bridegroom is Jesus Christ himself, whom actual disciples know and are supposed to abide in as a faithful bride. The Harlot Church [Rev 17] in contrast are those who are unfaithful and “none of his”, who are drunk on the blood of the saints (spiritually speaking) and the martyrs of Jesus.
To teach that the one set of five virgins are for the “church age” and that the others five virgins are in “the time of Jacobs troubles” the 144,000 found in Revelation 7 (after the admittance to the wedding, then wedding feast, is ludicrous to put under the microscope in this manner), as the passage taken in contexts is speaking about being ready for the wedding feast of the lamb – and does not include those who were unprepared in having and abiding in the Holy Spirit of God, which is symbolized by the oil in representation!
To me, this is the mixing of apple and oranges in using eschatology, while attempting to tie in the ten virgins of Matthew 25, the five of which were not ready, can not to my understanding, be tied into Revelation 7. Luke 12:35-37 will take allot more prayer and research, in seeing if the texts are in proper order and translation; which I suspect the meaning has been unintentionally mis- written, or lost in translation, as it would seem to conflict with other scriptures to best of my knowledge?
And even if there were some obscure spiritual meaning in relating to the blood line tribes of Israel towards the end of the age, this would not negate that these elect are any different than any other elect individuals of God, with the exception that they are attempting to understand an event which could even be a millennium off in the future, which surely doesn’t concern them nor the ten virgin allegory as found in Matthew 25: 1-13. This is a tough one, but I am confident I will be shown, if it concerns me in the future.
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.
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!
*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.
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!
I’m starting to see what it is like to be the Lord’s soldier behind enemy lines, or that I am surrounded by the wicked – even those who have been taught a fair degree of Bible, even as the camp of the saints has been overrun by false brethren.
They understand the fact that the work of Salvation was made complete in Christ, yet they have no light to see that this work has no place within them. This is the times we are living in today, the Gospel has gone out to all the world, and yet cheap beliefism is confused with actual sanctification in being made into the image of Christ so that we be partakers (with him) in his righteousness.
This is exactly why the Apostle Paul feared for his life by false brethren, who are now entrenched all around us, over two thousand years after Pentecost.
People get rather upset when an actual disciple of Christ is able to discern just who is, and who’s not the Lord’s! Yet in 1 John 4 we are commanded to be able to tell. You see, this is a war of truth, not some go along to get along compromising game to have people like us, or not!
It amazes me that most educated people understand Bible doctrines and dogmas taught to them by other men, yet have no spiritual understanding of how these doctrines are meant to be applied, even within contexts. This is because you cannot teach people who are not with Christ, into Christ!
They cannot hear his voice, they do not know the Lord, and he does not know them, to put it plainly. The ones of us who do walk with the Lord are called arrogant or spiritually proud, simply because we have light to see, and if you’re not careful, you will share what is holy with these pigs and dogs – who claim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and his completed work on Calvary yet have neither seen him nor known him.
Truthfully, if I cannot be around real brethren, I would rather be around those who do not claim to know him, as these are not twice the children of hell which Jesus spoke about.
Foot note: Satan understands doctrines and theology, but it does not make him a follower of Christ.
Christ Brings Division
Matthew 10:33-35 (KJV)
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Matthew 10:34-39 (NKJV)
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’[a] 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.
Luke 14:25-27 (KJV)
25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
I have recently discovered the pain of crucifixion as related to these verses. A true disciple will indeed pay the price for actually following Christ in spirit and in truth, not just giving lip service to the scriptures, like the majority of others do…
If you will not suffer these things, you cannot be a disciple of Christ – even if the Lord has started a work in you. Bearing ones cross is painful and will cost you everything within the world.
Systematic theologies often seek to shield the follower of Christ from the sacrifice required to enter into a closer walk with the Lord (what Oswald Chambers referred to as the white funeral). They are but a type of sari get (whores as in Rev 17) or a “false vine” attempting to preserve their life in the world, and yet attempting to please God without personal crucifixion. This is the “Spirit” of antichrist, another Gospel, and who Paul called enemies of the cross.
We must continually choose between following Christ (who is the true vine) and the world’s systems of lookalikes (even) Bible religions using the label of “Christian’s” who merely claim to be followers of Christ, yet in actuality will not pay the cost within their daily lives.
The worst enemies will be the one’s closest to him, his own family, and the “Broad Roader”, who started in his walk, but refuses to finish, as the price of discipleship is too high within the world.
It is much, much, easier to devise a system of teachings (doctrines) which negates the cost a true follower of Christ must pay, to be worthy of his atonement paid by our Lord. So, we must lose our life in this world in order to gain Christ, and no half measures are acceptable to utter obedience to our Lord within us.
I am speaking about having a “willing heart” who loves the Lord above all else. While making “theological” or doctrinal errors in one’s own understanding is irrelevant to our Lord, as “these” are the Good Ground in which Jesus spoke about, consistently dependent upon Him, and not leaning towards their own understanding, like a scribe or Pharisee does.
Strangers and pilgrims, to whom God speaks….. Unbelief means we do not have faith. If we are resisting Him over some point or other then we are cutting our own throats.
Don’t allow yourself to be ground down….

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.
You cannot touch the water twice,
because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
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.
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……
Eschatology is simply an intellectual study of the end times events. It is defined by 4 different viewpoints normally. Yet this is all but unfruitful, if we do not follow Jesus Christ in Spirit and in Truth. Lean not to your own understanding, but in “all things” bring it before the Lord. Most will not, nor can not do this, as you must know someone in order to follow them – and in the end days, most do not know the Lord. 2 Thess 2 -Satan must come first, and then Christ returns for his Bride, not the Harlots of Rev 17-18!
