TRUTH WAR PART FOUR
Understanding Discernment – The spirit of lawlessness is already at work.
1. Do you believe that absolute truth exists?
I am talking about a standard of truth that you can put on a balance scale to weigh, measure, test, and prove if something is true or not.
2. Do you think the society and culture you are living in today believes in, or even cares about absolute truth?
In part one, we discovered that as Kingdom People following Jesus; to discern the times and navigate 2022, we find absolute Truth in these three measurable standards:
Jesus (John 14:16) The Holy Spirit (John 16:17) The Word of God, The Bible (John 17:17)
In part two, we discovered the top seven world systems that have drifted away from Truth and can no longer have our trust. Part two showed us how the government system worldwide and the USA in particular, has turned its priorities from serving the people to serving itself.
In part three, we discovered that as Kingdom People following Jesus: we cannot give blind trust to the religious systems, because religious systems have also been breached.
Today I need to continue on the religious system as part three was just an introduction.
August 2022, this is from an End-Time book I am writing to be left here and discovered after we have been raptured and this is an excerpt helping those in the “church” that have found themselves left behind.
Chapter Three – Why am I left behind?
Now that you know that Satan IS real, and his goal was to blind you to the love of Jesus so that you would spend eternity (that is forever) in hell with him, separated from God. Now let us take a look at the categories of HOW Satan deceived YOU so you can see your way out.
1. Did the religious order, called the church hold you back?
Deceived religious church goers: you went to a church building, followed the rules, sang songs, prayed prayers, gave money, you may have even cast out a devil…
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! Matthew 7:21-23
Deception – The message Jesus spoke when He came to the earth was that the long-awaited Kingdom of God was here! The “good news” was that God made His Son Jesus, The King! Finally, the world that had been under the control of Satan, living in the kingdom of darkness can now be set free. Now a new king, a good king is here to deliver us, to deliver YOU out of darkness!
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love… Colossians 1:13
…to whom I now send you, 18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me. Acts26:17-18
Jesus said: …I will build My “church” (Ekklesia – those called out of Satan’s kingdom of darkness and conveyed into Jesus’ Kingdom of Light) and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven… Matthew 16:18
Within only a couple hundred years Satan used an old “legalistic religious spirit” to turn the focus off of the amazing power of The Kingdom of God and freedom of the Ekklesia (the called out ones) to reinstitute the old building temple system with professional clergy “over” the people.
The word – church
The word church is not derived from either Hebrew or Greek and it does not translate over from the Greek word Ecclesia as we’ve been told. It was borrowed from the Anglo-Saxon root word ‘circ’ which means circus or “Circe,” which stems from the Greek name of the goddess “Circe,” the daughter of “Helios,” the Roman Sun-god adopted from Greek mythology.
Roman Emperor Constantine The Great in 321 AD legalized the new religion called Christianity to try and unite his politically divided Rome. He mixed the religion of Jesus followers with the pagan legislated Sun-day (day of rest) dedicated to the Greek and Roman Sun-god, Helios. Constantine did not worship Jesus. He worshipped “Christos Helios” which means “Christ-The-True-Sun. The religion evolved into Romanism then Roman Catholicism and thus birthed the Roman Catholics. For over 1500 years, the word “church” has replaced the phrase the good news of The Kingdom of God. Only a faithful remnant, those which The Bible calls The Bride of Christ, that has just disappeared has kept the purity of The Kingdom of God on earth.
Now ask yourself, does this describe you? Did you attend a religious building on a religious day and do all the rules, take all the classes, pay 10% of you earnings plus offerings, sit in a row of people listening to a professional clergy person thinking you were doing the will of God? Perhaps you were even filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues and prayed to cast out a demon. Maybe you were a decision maker in the organization and voted on deacons, elders and the color of the song books that were ordered. Let’s go one step further, did you get a license to preach; marry people, baptize people, bury people, put on some kind of robe, collar or religious outfit? Did some manmade organization give you a title after attending their college like: pastor, teacher, evangelist, prophet, apostle, missionary, bishop, reverend…and you are still here?
If this was your path, to move forward, and gain eternal life with Jesus you must:
- Admit you were deceived by Satan and his army as they implemented a well thought plan for your eternal destruction.
- Ask Jesus for forgiveness for not seeking and following His Truth.
- Repent by changing your thinking; accept the Truth in this book and your hope will turn into faith, you will be saved!
Just as God closed the door on Noah’s Ark, allowing NOONE else in; in the same way, you only have one more opportunity, and the door will be shut forever.
When Jesus said: depart from me; the only reason was because they never knew Him.
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7
This is the end of that section of the book.
Definition of religion – re·li·gion | \ ri-ˈli-jən \
1 … institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices.
Take a note here that all seven demonic systems that control mankind, keeping him from being the free agent that God has created, all use the above definition; Institutionalized System…
What happens next with Truth? How to navigate around the mystery of lawlessness that is already at work. God put us here in this hour, planning on us wining battles and victoriously overcoming darkness. Time to sharpen our sword! Truth has the supernatural power to set us all free.
We will look at all seven Institutionalized Systems as One operational group in
