One thing which I have noticed over and over within my life is that I seem incapable of charting my life outside the will of God.
This makes no sense to the natural mind, (in which my free will is contained) within the confines of what God allows, or disallows to transpire. It is only by hindsight, that I am able to look backwards on my life, and come to an understanding of why my Lord did not allow me certain positions within the world.
THE SHIP’S CAPTAIN PURPOSELY KEPT ME FROM MY EXAMS AT THE MARINE SAFTEY OFFICE: I GUESS HE DIDN’T WANT ME TO LEAVE!
It is because He loves me, and knows what is best for me in working His will for my life!
I could give the reader many a “smokin example” of how the Lord seemed to frustrate me in what I wanted to achieve – “to be someone in the world” yet my life is really not my own, it was bought with a price at the cross of Christ, paid for in blood, and planned out even before the world began!
Now, to the natural understanding (mind) this is all just seen as gobble-de-goop, nonsense, and perhaps may be seen as an attempt to justify failure. An opium of the masses Carl Marx espoused.
Yet the TRUTH is only known in the “Spirit of Truth” who is Jesus Christ, made manifest in His believer alone, and not to the world or its people. That’s right, the Lord God only chooses those he has foreknown, even before the foundations of the earth!
Trying to “teach people into Christ” is fruitless, and carnal in one’s understanding as they are operating independently of God, the first leg of sin, the second being rebellion, or disobedience.
You see, walking “in Christ” is only achieved at a deeply personal level, entering the Holies of Holies within your own soul, with Christ being our High Priest – the ONLY mediator between God and Man!
If you are not following and abiding in the vine personally, once starting with Christ you might be testing God’s patience with you, and even worse you are drying up and withering, only to be fit for the burning! I know, I know, this sounds like strict Arminian legalism to most – and not really subscribed to today, as a point of “proper doctrine”. Yet I am not discussing doctrine, nor theology, only my experience in following Christ on the narrow road which leads to life NOW – not after you die!
Systematic theologies try to teach people into following the Lord, it cannot be done; and neither can evangelism devoid of the Fathers will. Some people waste their entire lives being devout in their religious’ activities; but do they really know Him and Follow Him? Most do not, nor will not, as they wish to maintain sovereignty over their own lives while subconsciously trying to offer up self-justification, which there is none before God – except to be found dwelling “in Christ” by His work of sanctification in a DISCIPLES life. The Scribes and Pharisees (academics) of old, attempted to obtain their own righteousness’ by keeping the law, and the early Church observed times and dates with piety, yet they had left their first love: who is only to be Jesus Christ, in “Spirit and in Truth”! The Apostle Paul called them enemies of the cross, as they would not turn themselves over for crucifixion so as to be transformed into His image! This is the only way to spiritual life, any divergence from this narrow path will eventually lead towards permanent separation from God.
This is why the Apostle John said: that many had started with them, yet became diverted to “another Gospel”! This other Gospel is the SPIRIT of Antichrist! It is not being against Christ per say, it is a divergence away from, a love for the truth that “we might be saved” ultimately! This is NOT popular to teach nowadays, yet it is the TRUTH of God, and what He requires of us – to be found in Christ the moment our bodies give out. Even a few seconds after death is no good; unless of course, you are given a second chance at life! It takes our Lord a long time to put to death sin in our lives, and to be transformed into His image. It is only a deep, deep, work of the Holy Spirit, which can achieve such a task, and (with our cooperation) because we love Him, is often missed!
I don’t write posts like these to be popular in the world, which would be grossly contradictory to scripture (being popular in the world) if I was to be found in such a light! This is why Jesus said that the world will hate you for my Name’s sake. You see, the world (flesh and devil) naturally gravitate to ones who are like them (have their nature), and reject those who have the nature of Jesus Christ. Do churches today even consider such a thing? I think NOT, as they are more concerned with hearing “teacher- teacher” or loving the world, their position within the world, and people of the world, more than loving God!
Unity with the world is enmity with God and Satanic, as the believer has been “called out” from the world, and its people, simply to follow Christ (internally)! If you are following anyone else or “going with” anyone else, you are in grievous error before God. This is why Jesus said, you are either with Him or against Him! This is not nursery school stuff, this is a tough and manly war!
The EFFEMINATE CHURCH SPIRIT – Great Whore, who rides the beast, the Mother of Harlots…
The description above is of Man Orchestrated Christianity (Church) systems. It symbolizes a system of orthodoxies devoid of actually following Jesus Christ personally! It symbolizes a reversal of the ordinances of God. It is the Spirit of Antichrist, a replacement or counterfeit (look-alike) to actually knowing Jesus Christ in the Eros sense, (intimately as a bride knows her husband).
Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV) I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
It is an effeminate spirit, with its offspring coming from the church of the dead women (Christianized Mithraism) sitting on the Seven Hills of Rome. Whereas, God made the Man the head of the Women, as she was a part of him, and belongs to the man – (as in the oneness of Christ and His Bride). She was never created to be a standalone, self-sufficient part of the household. She is not co-equal to her man, and certainly not put in authority, or to be given authority over him! Yet Satan wishes only the reversal of God’s order; as it is he who wishes to place his throne above God’s throne.
And as Satan tempted the women, (the weaker vessel) to sin, she in turned tempted her Man into sin. Satan used the women, as an entry point to the man. This is a very effective tactic indeed, and the sexual revolution then empowered the women to take charge over the man! The men of ancient Israel were cursed of God, by putting women and children (some read servants) over them. This is one of the many reasons that the modern-day church system, is a system of femininity.
It is a nurturing system, which says God loves everyone equally, and without the guilt of sin: for which Christ died. It is the crafted system Satan will use to play God on Earth, loving the world and everyone in it! Humanity does not understand, nor suspect that the son of perdition will appear as a loving King of (Babylon) the world.
I have taken the time to point out this effeminate spirit, as it is often missed nowadays within systematic theologies. Then the more obvious sins as listed below: and are self-evident and need no explanation of why these sins will separate us from God.
If you have not noticed, or been informed – all the scriptures agree in contexts, but what you probably have never been taught, is that the whole of the scriptures is only speaking to the elect (people who start with Christ) it was never intended to be read to the world for reproof or correction, only those who would follow Jesus Christ. This is just another of many, many verses, which examine what a follower of Jesus Christ must do. It is in no way “just fire insurance”, but rather a transformation process, we must endure should we wish to be found with Him.
1 Corinthians 6:9 (KJV) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.
I believe that today, we are seeing the makings of a world devoid of God, and even His principles once honored in the past by western nations. On a human level, this is gut wrenching to a child of God! Yet it is prophesized before the return, or second coming, of Christ. It is the feet of Iron and Clay (multiculturalism) in the book of Daniel. It is Islamic terrorism found in Daniel 10:13-14. The great falling away, the age of delusion and the darkness comes when no man can work. It is Nation against nation (Ethos) in Hebrew – and Kingdom against Kingdom. Great bloodshed upon the earth, and the betrayal of governments to their people (for the one world order).
This is why many believers will be handed over to prisons, some tortured, and some executed. Wickedness avails on the earth because “He who now restraineth” (the Holy Spirit) is gone, (as far as a general grace upon the populations of the world is concerned) – NOT the believer! Men once considered of sound mind (like the founding fathers of the U.S.for example) will be marked as extremists! Why? Because the days are evil, and the nature of Satan (which is within his people), now has no restraints or consciousness of the Lord God.
So man, of God, take charge, push in, and be ready for the final skirmish; only looking to our Redeemer and Savior, and never back to Sodom, like Lot’s wife!
