Complete Failure

Everywhere I look I see it. In the church, in the government, in the cities and towns, in the family, in myself … failure.
Some of us will acknowledge that we live in a corrupt society, governed by mass murderers, sociopaths, thieves and liars, but, what of it? They don't do anything about it, they still send their children to the beast education system, go to the same church, vote for whom they imagine is the lesser of two evils every four years, and generally carry on as if nothing is wrong, some how, magically, everything will turn out alright.

In my lifetime I have watched the “church” and government completely fail, to degenerate into pyramid schemes and totalitarian control of the supposed “free” citizens. I've seen the medical field turn from healing into a mass laboratory where drugs are created and sold, not to heal, but to create profit. Doctors are paid not by curing disease, but by the number of prescriptions they write. Legalized drug dealers, and outside of the medical community, harsh sentences are imposed upon the “illegal” drug dealers for selling much less harmful drugs, filling the prison system to maximum capacity. But that's OK, because the prison system is also a money-making scam for the rich.

About 9 years ago it all came together for me, as supposed men of God, whom I had previously respected, were pushing for war against Iraq, just as the paid shills for the military-industrial complex do. Clearly, we were not reading the same Bible. Beyond a doubt Iraq had no ability to attack America, or desire to, but these “men of God” were preaching sermons declaring that if we spoke against it, we were in fact speaking against God Himself! The result: America has inflicted mass death upon Iraq, upon innocent men, women and children, over two million of them! 1 of every 2 children in Iraq is an orphan thanks to the misguided, murderous policy of the American government, and the backing and urging of many of America's most prominent religious leaders.

Has any government official apologized for or accepted blame or been prosecuted for this? Has any religious leader acknowledged their error? Repented for it? No, these same “leaders” with the blood of 2,000,000 innocents on their head already cry out for more! Now it's Iran! Iran is the evil which must be destroyed.

In the past I have tried to seek truth through the only forum that's not perceptibly controlled by the moneyed elite, the Internet. I've since realized that while it doesn't appear to be controlled, it is in another way, by the massive spreading of disinformation, the truth is nearly completely obfuscated. Paid Shills If you have a particular favorite whom you follow on the Internet, and they seem to be telling the truth, and have a substantial following, realize that if they were actually telling you more than a partial truth, meant to further confuse you, they would have been silenced already. Hard to accept? Not really, realize that since JFK's assassination no president has dared to tell us the truth, or to put a stop to the criminal and/or murderous government activities. Do you really think the controlling force of the moneyed elite would allow someone to gain a large following and tell the truth to thousands or even millions? No, it's not going to happen.

So what do we do? Do we take to the streets and protest? No, you'll only get your heads bashed in, and be imprisoned also. Do we form our own militias and fight wars to overthrow the corrupt, criminal government. 2Co 10:3-4 No, that's not the way of Christianity, and you won't win; rifles, pistols and shotguns are no match for the government's array of weapons. America is not and never was the kingdom of God, it's always been a kingdom of the devil, at times it's been more just, less criminal, less murderous, but it's a physical kingdom, not the spiritual kingdom of God that we are to seek after. Mat 6:33

The answer is to come out of this evil kingdom spiritually, by refusing to conform to to it. Rom 12:2 Don't pretend everything is alright, it's not, and it won't be until Christ comes and reigns. Rev 11:15 You, your guns, your favorite political candidate will not change anything, just become corrupted by trying to reform the devil's kingdoms. Realize that America is evil, completely corrupt and not worth saving, the so-called “church” is completely conformed to it. As the Lord says “come out of her”, or else you'll find yourself partaking in her crimes and receiving her punishment. Rev 18:4 America and the “church” are part of end times Babylon, and they will be destroyed. Only a small remnant will be saved. Rev 7:3

The Lord uses the analogy of the world being drunk by its spiritual fornication with the fallen church, Rev 17:2, Rev 17:4, Rev 18:3, Rev 18:9, 2Th 2:3 in order to see this, you have to come out of it and refuse to partake in it. Just as the newly sober person must refuse to hang around with those still abusing drugs and alcohol, so must the newly free Christian stop taking part in the madness that passes for “church” these days. The time to escape the destruction that is coming upon the “church” and its partners in fornication is short, always much shorter than one caught up in it thinks. Again, “come out of her now”! This COULD be your last warning. Rev 18:4

Come out of her and do what? Come out and wait upon the Lord to direct you. Of course we don't need to be told we must share the truth of being called out: Don't let a chance go by to share the truth of being called out of the fallen church and criminal country we live in, speak the truth no matter what. You are going to lose many friends, even family members, who can't accept the truth, this will hurt, but eternal separation from the Lord will hurt much longer than the temporary pain from loss of friends and family. Remember this too: Pro 18:24 ... and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

I'm also seeing failure within the group that consider themselves to be the remnant, because they don't go to “church”, they have their own ministries, websites, podcasts, followers, etc. Be careful here brethren, don't leave the bondage of the “church” to become in bondage to men outside the “church”. Gal 3:1, Gal 4:24-5 Warning signs: “we have this certain knowledge, or revelation, that no one else has”, “we are the only true remnant, if you do not believe as we do you are not one of us”, “if you ask us to explain this “revelation” from God, or question it, then you are not one of us and are actually from the devil!” “We have the truth, you either accept it without question, or you cannot be in our fellowship, ministry, Internet group, etc”. Heb 5:11- 14, 1Co 3:1-3, Php 3:1-2

There are lots of problems with this, first, you have a recipe that is primed to make a new cult, that is no longer able to rightly divide the Word, and requires the approval of men rather than the Lord. When the truth is revealed, the pride of the group that has already promoted a false doctrine, may very well stop the group from accepting the newly revealed truth. Furthermore, to assume that you have the whole truth from God, and cannot be wrong is to set yourself up as a little pope right? Don't the Catholics say the Pope is God's infallible representative here on earth? Dangerous, flee from it, recognize it in yourself and repent from it. You and I have both been wrong before concerning God's Word, we may be again, don't be so proud, arrogant and haughty to say you can't be wrong. I remember a discussion I was having with a group like the above-mentioned kind, as I pointed out the obvious errors in their false doctrines I was told my argument was with God, not them! Amazing! The height of supposed infallibility! Of course, my argument is not with God, but with their interpretation of God's Word! 2Ti 2:15, Gal 1:10, Pro 16:18

2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

When God truly does reveal his Word for the end times, through the Holy Ghost, there won't be a single group who receive it, but many, as the Spirit leads, as those who are open to the Spirit are lead. And most importantly, it won't lead to more questions, but it will lead to the truth, the correct path for His remnant to go in these perilous times, not to further error in interpreting the Word of God, sealed up until the time He reveals it. Rev 10:4

I caution those of you who consider yourselves the remnant, or the 144,000, or whatever term you want to use, to teach that which is of immediate concern, i.e. the warning for the “church” to come out of the evil institutions before they are destroyed along with those who won't hear and obey, Rev 18:4 rather than that which is of dubious import and leads to strife and separation of the saints. Rom 16:17-18 To do so in these obvious perilous days indicates a lack of understanding of the times we live in, Mat 16:3 and a predisposition for perceived intellectual superiority, and should show those who follow you to be wary of what supposed “revelation” comes next from your “ministry”. 2Pe 3:15-17

Again, these are indeed the last days and there are important things to be taught, and which take precedence over others, for example:

You are saved by grace and faith, not by works. Eph 2:8-9 You can lose your salvation. Rev 3:5, Exo 32:32, Psa 69:28

Jesus Christ is the true seed of Abraham,.Gal 3:16

The true Israel of God, is made up of believers in Christ, regardless of their ancestry. Rom 11:20, Rom 11:23

The Israel of God is spiritual in nature, not physical, it's not a land mass in the middle east that Christians should be fighting for, or over. Rom 11:16 - 24, Gal 4:25-26, Heb 11:10, Heb 12:22, Zec 12:3

You, as a believer in Christ, are the true Jews, true Israelite's, the true Israel of God, not those who deny Christ is the Messiah. Joh 4:22, Rom 2:28-29, 1Jn 2:22-23, Gal 6:15 – 16, Rom 9:6 - 8

If you deny that Christ is the only begotten Son of God, then you have no part, or inheritance from God. 1Jn 2:23, Gal 3:16, Gal 3:29, Rom 9:8

Those who call themselves God's chosen people, or Jews, are not, and call their country Israel are usurpers, phonies, and will be used by Satan as his counterfeit Israel and to usher in his counterfeit trinity. Rev 2:9, 3:9, Rev 13:11 – 15

Christians who support Satan's counterfeit Israel, are under strong delusion, have given up their inheritance as the seed of Abraham through Christ, their birthright as born again believers just as Esau forfeited his birthright to Jacob, and as we know, God hated Esau. These supporters of the Synagogues of Satan are in great peril of having their names blotted out of the book of life, and if they do not quickly develop a love of the truth will suffer from the beast system, currently using them to achieve their desired goals in the middle east, turning on them, and then after they realize that there will be no rapture they will turn completely to Satan's unholy trinity, be deceived by them and be forever damned. 2Th 2:11, Heb 12:16 - 17, Rom 9:13, 2Th 2:10, Rev 13:8 - 18, Rev 17:16

We as Christians should NOT fight in carnal, fleshly wars, we fight spiritual battles against demonic strongholds and dominions with prayer not bombs and tanks, etc. 2Co 10:4

The “church”, as prophesied, and not disputed by any serious believer, has fallen away from God and become a part of Babylon, or the whore that rides the beast. To be a part of the last days remnant you must leave or come out of the “church”. 2Th 2:3, Rev 17:3, 17:7, Rev 14:4, 18:4

The Israel of God, or new Jerusalem we are to look for is not of this earth, and is currently being built for us, and will be brought down to us in God's time. Heb 12:22, Joh 14:2 - 3, Rev 21:2

Christ is going to return and set up His Kingdom and take dominion over the earth for “ever and ever”. Rev 11:15

There is a Great Tribulation coming and many people believing that they are saved will be destroyed in it, there will not be a Rapture either, but there will be a sealing of His Remnant, so they will not be hurt during the Tribulation. Rev 16:12 – 21, Rev 7:3

Many who call themselves Christians, but who didn't love the truth or seek His Kingdom will be left out of it, filled with strong delusion they taught another gospel, and did the will of man and not God, and as such He doesn't know them, neither are they saved. 2Th 2:10, Mat 6:33, 2Th 2:11, Mat 7:21 - 23

Finally, my failure must be brought into the light also: I'm through preaching to the choir, or arguing about the scriptures, this accomplishes nothing good, and I'm tired of wasting time. Clearly, it is not God's will that any should perish, but they will, it's way past time for His watchmen to do all they can to spread the truth before it is completely taken from the earth. Hos 4:6

But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Faith is the key to our relationship with our Savior, we abide in Him through faith, being certain that He alone can deliver us from the evils which beset this lost and wicked world. We must cling to Him as Noah and his family clung to the ark. In these end days, and brethren if we ever had more signs of the fact that these are indeed the last days where sin reigns on the earth then I must have missed it? Jesus Christ is our Savior, our Ark, our lifeboat to hang on to, to save us from drowning in God's wrath being poured out upon the wicked. Children, it is faith in Him alone that will save you. Faith makes you one with Christ, makes you righteous in the eyes of God, will make you worthy to escape the things which are coming (Luk 21:36).

The Lord is separating His people from the world now as I write this. Don't fight Him on this, don't try to hang on to the things of this world, you don't need them, you only need Jesus. The world will do it's best to keep you hooked to it's corrupt system. Will try and convince you that you must have what it peddles, like the commercials on TV try to manipulate us into consuming based on fear and social pressures, these messages, like the phony news programs, lies in the school and in the so-called “Church” system are from the enemy, the father of lies. The devil, using man's greed, has infiltrated all of the world's institution's, its governments, religious bodies, its military and police organizations, everything, all of them, corrupt from the top down, no hope for reform, nothing but destruction awaits. There's no group you can join, no insurance you can buy, no weapon you can purchase, no amount of material goods can save you, no matter what's in your bank account, it's not enough! … only a true and abiding faith in Jesus Christ will get you through that which is coming. Your faith is worth more than all the money in the world, because all the money in the world can't save you.

Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Meaning all but 8 people were destroyed by the flood. All who prepare themselves, like Noah, who make Jesus their Ark, who overcome the world through the blood of Jesus, and who love not their lives or the world will be spared the coming great and terrible tribulation. They are being refined like silver now, they'll make it through the fire without being harmed. All those who aren't prepared for the tribulation will be swept away in a flood of God's Holy Wrath.

Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

... Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

The remnant of Israel, comprised of physical descendants of Abraham, and gentiles, made joint heirs by faith in Christ's finished work on the cross, are united by their hearing and obeying God's command to come out of “her”. What is the “her” spoken of in Rev 18:4? It's the end-times Harlot, having spiritually fornicated with the “kings” of the earth to deceive and receive riches and power, known collectively to the world as the “church”.

To the unlearned ear, to the average church-goer, it sounds like just another attack on “christians”, who, self-righteously feel persecuted because they go to “church” weekly, or wear pins or pendants with Jesus or the cross or the American flag on them. Despite their outward appearance, inwardly these self-proclaimed “christians” have lost or never had a love for the truth. Instead of a love for the true Gospel, or true commandments of the Lord, they place their faith in their idols, traditions of men, like church buildings, church hierarchies, e.g. pastors, bishops, deacons, apostles, youth pastors? their “church” services, e.g. meet and greets, pot luck dinners, raffles, playing of copyrighted songs which they refer to as “praise and worship”, and so on.

Why the discrepancy between the “church” of today and the Bible's example of how the true disciples of Christ should gather? Let's pause here and read from the book of Acts 2:38-47

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Act 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Act 2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
Act 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
Act 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Act 2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
Act 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
Act 2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
Act 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
Act 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Imagine that. The people were so genuinely touched by the Holy Spirit that they renounced the wicked ways of the world. So changed were they by hearing the glorious Gospel that they instantly decided this was all they wanted furthermore from life, nothing else mattered to them, not their houses or gold or silver. They “sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all, as every man had need.” Isn't this anathema to what the “church” teaches today? Yes, indeed, because most of the “church” has fallen away from the true Gospel, worshiping the things of the world, their church buildings, their country's flag, their governments, their bank accounts, etc. After following the traditions of men for the last few generations, instead of the commandments of God, they have become children of the devil, unable to recognize their Messiah, Jesus Christ, just as the children of Israel rejected Him 2,000 years ago.

Your “churches” have led you astray, away from the true Gospel to a self seeking, worldly, corrupted version of the beautiful, selfless words of our Savior.

Mat 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven

Forget about God's kingdom, we want a kingdom we can see and glory in. We will build our own kingdom, we'll conform to the world and become like them so we can force people to conform to our version of “christianity”. God wants us to be rich, not poor, we despise the poor!

Mat 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

We will not mourn, but we'll be comforted with messages of wealth and prosperity and dominion!

Mat 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

The meek shall be despised and down-trodden, like the poor, we are the head and not the tail, we shall be rich and dominant now!

Mat 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

There is no need for that because we are filled with self-righteousness!

Mat 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

We desire new Covenant mercy for ourselves, but for others let them be punished according to the old Covenant! An example being many self-proclaimed “christians” support the death penalty.

Mat 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Just as Jesus said about the children of Israel, the same is true of today's deceived, fleshly “christian”, Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Peace? That is also anathema to today's “christian”, they teach we must kill our enemies so that Christ can return and reign in “his” kingdom that they are going to build for him. If you were to read the actual Word of Jesus Christ in the Bible, you could plainly see that He teaches peace and love, not war and prosperity. How could His plain and simple message be corrupted so completely? He told us how it happens:

Mat 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition ...

Insert here all the false doctrines today's “church” and “christian” believe in … wealth and prosperity, just wars, do not give to the poor unless they meet your personal guidelines, mercy for ourselves and capital punishment for them, conform to the world so we can force them to conform to us …

Mat 15:6 .... Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

All these false doctrines you've learned in your “church”, showing itself to be the prophesied “fallen” “church” of 2 Th 2 and Rev 18:4. I say to all of you who read this, it is time, well past time to come out of this corrupt entity known as the “church”, or the end times harlot, you can't save it, but there is still time to save yourselves.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Rev 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
Rev 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
Rev 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
Rev 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Isa 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Isa 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood

I was flipping through the channels, saw Televangelist Arnold Murray from the show titled “Shepherd's Chapel” on. He does a Q and A time for the last half hour of the show. The question from Roweena in OR: My nephew has done 3 tours in Iraq, he's out of the army now, but he has so much guilt, he can't sleep, and he has dreams that Jesus hates him for what he has done ... Murray interrupts her there and says:
Jesus loves him for what he has done!


He continues on:

I want you to make a note of Psalms 144, this is extremely important, Psalms 144, it's the soldier's prayer.
I hate it when preachers pass along half-baked ideas that protecting the women and children of this nation is a sin. That's disgusting!!
When we fought up at the reservoir in North Korea and later men fought in Vietnam, we broke the back of Communism … it went down. We can be very proud of that.

Half-baked” ideas about not killing? Mr. Murray, what did your killing Asians in North Korea do to defend the women and children of this country? Or those that killed Asians in Vietnam or Arabs in Iraq? Did any of those countries pose a real threat to America? Of course not! You'd have to be blindly following the puppets' of Satan's kingdoms to seriously consider that. But, you speak of it with pride 50 plus years later on? Mr Murray, that is truly DISGUSTING! You've had well over 50 years to learn the Bible, to see through Satan's schemes that divide and conquer men, to learn the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The best you can come up with is to say you hate preacher's that say protecting women and children in our country is a sin? Mr Murray, no American women or children have been killed by the North Koreans, or the Vietnamese or the Iraqis, but, hundreds of thousands of their women and children have been killed by Americans, egged on by blood lusting false preachers like you!

If any of you are watching this man spout his false doctrines, I seriously urge you to turn him off, quit sending this man your money and read and reread your bibles until you understand the Prince of Peace really meant it when He said turn the other cheek! Read Matthew 5, read what Jesus says happens to all who pick up the sword (Mat 26:52), read whom Peter (1Pe 5:8) and Paul (Eph 6:12) tell you your true enemy is … hint, you cannot kill him with a sword or a rifle!

Murray, and hundreds of other “pastors” teach that it's OK with the Lord to kill if your “country” says it's OK. He's not the first, nor the last supposed man of God to take part in the violence that is Satan's kingdoms. Satan uses man's natural greed, idolatry as in nationalism, and patriotism, in addition to false interpretations of the Bible to convince millions of self-proclaimed Christians to go to war against each other. Romans 13 is a prime example:

Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 
Rom 13:2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

I've heard preachers use these scriptures to try and force Christians to fight for the governments of the world. To convince parents to send their children to fight the wars of empire and conquest and natural resources theft, or to simply remain quiet while the slaughter goes on.

Dear brethren, the government is not asking you to defend yours or your neighbor's homes: no, it is asking you to become complicit in the slaughter that goes on daily. The theft, murder and destruction of the innocent, for the benefit of the rich. This is not God's way, He will not love you for it, as Arnold Murray foolishly said to the questioner. No, the soldier who is having the nightmares is in fact being brought to repentance from this evil and abhorrent behavior by the goodness of God! (Rom 2:4)

Not to single out Murray, again, many other so-called pastors teach the same lies. But these lies, which are so wide spread are so easily refuted by Jesus Himself:

Mat 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
Mat 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also …
Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

God's children do not kill one another with swords and rifles and bombs, they are peacemakers:

Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

There are analogies in the Bible, and in popular hymns, using military terminology, but do not be deceived, the scriptures are clear:

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Fear of God: the beginning of Wisdom

Pro 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: …

Today's Christian tends to lack humility, seeks righteousness not from God, but from their idolatrous trappings: their ornate church building, their “services”. Their fellow “Church” goers, you know 'Brother Jim and Sister Bobby Sue, they're always here every time the “Church” door is opened'. That kind of flattery really gets to some people's heads. Every time they're singled out as being faithful “Church”-goers, or tithers, they get another layer of self righteousness on them, pretty soon, like if you were to keep applying varnish to a table, it's going to take a massive sledge and chisel to break through it and find some humility in there! The self-righteous like to wear their best clothes, and they raise their hands the highest and sway prominently during the “praise and worship” sessions in their “Church”, maybe you've seen this type?

There's also another kind of self-righteousness or self-worship going on in Christendom. It's intellectual one-upping your brother or sister, for example, you correct them in a public way over some minor doctrinal point, and inside you feel a bit superior to them. Or, a group of people studying the Bible come up with a new take on a certain scripture, others disagree, but they refuse to reason through the scriptures regarding their “new” revelation. Instead, they utter phrases like “if you have ears to hear”, or something else, as if everyone but them has a spirit of stupor, or strong delusion because they “heard” from God. Now, of course we know there are cases of God revealing His Word to His people, and not to others, but you had better be able to defend your beliefs when called on, and not just give a flippant remark in response to an honest question (1Pe 3:15).

Still worse yet, others believe they have received a “Special” revelation from God and they are now going to charge the rest of us if we want to understand it! Of course, no matter how you try to justify it, it is merchandising the Word of God (Mat 10:8), and you should expect Jesus to be angry with you for it (Joh 2:14-16).

Worst of all is the person who thinks it's all a game, and they, being so much smarter than others, can banter about the true meaning of scriptures with people just to prove how much superior they are than you. They have no fear of God, don't really believe what they are saying, but they take pleasure in trying to make the Christian, who is studying his or her way to the truth, look like fools, as all who believe in God must be, according to these intellectual worshiping people.

A few examples of people whose basic problem is they lack humility. Pride is ruling the heart and mind, but the LORD has said:

Isa_13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

And Jesus speaking of the Kingdom of Heaven said:

Mat 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

The Bible is full of warnings to us: Humble yourselves, do not exalt yourselves, be meek and mild, do not boast, do not try to reign over your brothers and sisters, do not chase after the things of the world, these are the habits of the pagans, the heathens, those who are without God (Mat 6:32).

Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Calling the Lost Sheep of the True Israel of God out of the Harlot Church

Two thousand years ago most of the children of Israel rejected their Messiah, the Lord God destroyed physical Israel, particularly Jerusalem, and its Temple (Mat 23:38, Luk 21:20-24), which had been turned into a place of merchandizing by the religious hierarchy (Mat 21:12-13), as today's Church has also become. Instead of animals to sacrifice they sell books, tapes, and CDs, promising greater prosperity in all the things of the flesh. No matter how wonderful you think your pastor or favorite televangelist is they have no right to sell the Gospel. Claiming it to be a tithe is still selling the Word of God. No matter how the issue is spun, the Bible says freely you have received, freely give (Mat 10:8). They are the modern day Pharisees. They, like their spiritual ancestors, keep the truth of the Gospel from their congregations, and make their disciples into twice the children of hell they are (Mat 23:15).

The promises, originally given to Abraham and his physical descendants (Gen 12:1-3, Gen 17), were now given to believer's in Jesus Christ only (Rom 15:8, Gal 3:16), and the children of physical Israel that weren't killed in the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD were scattered and made captives of all the nations of the earth (Luk 21:24). The apostle Paul likens Israel after Jesus' finished work on the cross as an olive tree. Believers in Jesus are grafted in to the olive tree and non-believers are torn out of it. It isn't a matter of the “Church” replacing Abraham's physical descendants as Israel, it's the Lord God rejecting those who rejected His only begotten Son. Moses prophesied the day:

Deu 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

And Peter, on the day of Pentecost, restated the prophesy to the children of Israel, and warned them again:

Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
Act 3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

And many other warnings were given to the children of Israel, but still, only a few thousand repented and believed on Jesus as their Messiah. They, along with the gentiles who believed, became the Israel of God (Gal 6:16). Israel after the flesh would shortly be destroyed, but those that harkened (Act 3:23) unto Jesus would avoid the destruction and flee Jerusalem as He warned them to do (Luk 21:20-21).

Why wouldn't they hear the Messiah?

Mat_17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

It isn't that they weren't told to harken, to obey, they were (Deu 18:15, Act 3:22-23), but, they didn't believe He was who He said He was.

Joh 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
Joh 5:38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
Joh 5:40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Joh 5:41 I receive not honour from men.
Joh 5:42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
Joh 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

What could cause so many to fall away from the Word of God? To not know the time of His coming, to recognize their savior (Luk 19:44)? The same thing that happened to most of the lost sheep of Israel has happened to the so-called “Church” today. They've exchanged the Word of God, or commandments, for the traditions of men (Mat 15:3-9). The book of Daniel points to the time of the Messiah (Dan 9:24-27). Isaiah points to the purposes and conditions of His coming in much greater detail (Isa 7:14, 8:14-15, 28:16, 42:1-4, 49:1-7, 50:4-9, 53:1-12). Had the Israelite's of the time of His coming studied the scriptures, they would have known and been ready to receive Him, but, just as today, they listened to men who told them what they wanted to hear, not the truth (2Ti 2:15, 2Ti 4:4, Tit 1:14).

Take heed from the stories in the Bible regarding the children of Israel, and do not fall into the same traps and snares they did (1Co 10:11). Today's obstacles to salvation are even greater than then. 2 Th 2 tells us that in the last days there will be a “great falling away” preceding the return of Jesus Christ. We are clearly in these times as most of the professing Christians in the world look to their governments for guidance, and abide by the laws of man over the commandments of God. The Word of God has been so twisted and distorted that's its original meaning is lost and God's “children” don't care, in fact many take pleasure in their man made traditions and idols, such as their church buildings and flags and books, CDs and DVDs, supposedly Bible-based, that leads them away from the Holy Spirit and to follow the flesh. The great falling away of God's “people” has caused these lost souls to covet wealth and self righteous adulation in their false temples, known as churches. To support the wars of the devil's kingdoms, and to practically worship a condemned people and a forsaken, desolate piece of land in the middle east.

Take a few minutes here and think these things over carefully: Are you following God's commandments or the traditions of men when you support the government's wars? The Bible tells us that the whole world lies in wickedness (1Jo 5:19) and that the kingdoms of the world belong to Satan (Mat 4:8-9). Why would a “Christian” let him or herself get talked into fighting for Satan's kingdoms?

Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Mat 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
Mat 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

2Co_10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Despite all the scriptures to the contrary, most self proclaimed Christians still think it's a good thing to fight for the kingdoms of the world. No matter what country you fight for or against, it's still Satan's! Therefore, only Satan can win when his kingdoms fight against each other in the flesh. If you've read and understood this you know you've been misled, you've been deceived by the very thing which you've been taught was supposed to teach you about God and His Word, the “Church”, instead they've led you into breaking His Commandments.

Another grievous example of man’s traditions taking precedence over the commandments of God is in the area of money. Despite several warnings from Jesus, self pro-claimed “Christians” still chase after wealth and material possessions like the pagans do (Mat 6:32). Pastors implore their congregations to give more and more, they need bigger Church buildings, more people in the Churches, more of everything, bigger houses, more expensive clothing and cars. With the promises of material gain for themselves, many Christians think what the Lord intended as giving as your heart leads (2Co 9:7), is really a religious stock market, or a magic money multiplier. Instead of making disciples of Christians and leading them to endure to the end and salvation, the modern religious leaders are more like CEOs of corporations that are judged by the balance sheet, and not the character of their congregations, a perversion of the purpose of assembling together for fellowship and worship of God. You're not under the law, you aren't required to give 10 percent of your earnings, although the religious leaders like you to think that, but as was said above, Christians are to give as their heart leads, not under compulsion, not under false doctrine, but cheerfully, from a pure heart, expecting nothing back. Think carefully about this Christian: why would the LORD lead you to chase after that which makes it harder to enter into Heaven? Is the purpose of the Church to make money or to gain salvation for the lost?

Mat 19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Luk 1:53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

Luk 6:20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Luk 6:21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Luk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Luk 6:23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
Luk 6:24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.

This is the state of today's “Church”, totally corrupted by and conformed to the world. Completely removed from its original calling, which is to gather a people out from the world, call them out of the world as God called Abraham out, and to remain faithful to Him and obey His commandments. Instead, the average “Christian” is as corrupt and immoral as the pagan non-believer, divorce rates are as high or higher, infidelity, hard-hearted, giving only to family, if that, not to all who ask. Wanting old Covenant punishments for all others, but New Covenant forgiveness for themselves. Far more interested in the things of the world than the Word of God, and happy to pay others to tell them what they want to hear, rather than study God's Word for themselves. Delighting in the false doctrines of prosperity and raptures and wars, et al. They have become, just as the children of Israel 2,000 years ago, a people who won't recognize their Messiah and their Messiah will not know them either when He returns (Mat 7:21-23).

Worse than not knowing Him, they now align themselves with a group of condemned blasphemers who DENY His Coming, His DIVINITY, and all the things He FULFILLED on the CROSS (Joh 3:18)! The Bible is crystal clear on the gathering of the Tribes of Israel, it can only be done by the Messiah (Deu 30:3), and concerning the physical descendants of Abraham, none can be blessed, or be brought back into Covenant with God until they acknowledge the Messiah (Mat 23:39)! The result of nearly 200 years of Dispensational, or duel Covenant Theology in the churches' has been the creation of a false religion known as Judeo-Christianity, which of course is an oxymoron: how can you join one religion that believes its Messiah hasn't yet come, to one that believes He has come? To deny Christ is of the antichrist, plain and simple (1Jo 2:22-23). If your “Church” leaders won't tell you that, then you are obviously going to the wrong place to learn about the Bible.

Why is it so important to understand the True Israel of God (Rom 11, Gal 6:16) is spiritual, like as the kingdom of Heaven? Why do you need to know that a True Jew, or Israelite is one who's heart is circumcised (Rom 2:29)? Why do you need to know that the true Temple of God is the body of Christ, the believer (2Co 6:16), and not a physical building the unbelievers want to restore in Palestine? Because it is the essence of the New and Better Covenant promised by all the Old Testament prophets, of which Jesus Christ is the mediator (Heb 8:6, 12:24).

2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Because, only if you know these things will you truly be able to be in Covenant with the LORD. You must know who you are in Christ in order to be truly saved, to fulfill your duties and obligations and to not be deceived as most in the “Church” are. The truth is not taught in the “Church” any more, as Paul said “sound doctrine” is no longer tolerated (2Ti 4:3).

The “Church” has convinced a majority of Christians that they are “saved” regardless of what they do or believe. They have deceived you into giving up your birthright in Christ to a group of unbeliever's in Satan's counterfeit “Israel”. Becoming spiritual Esau's, when, of course you need to become as Jacob (Rom 9:13)! They've made merchandise of you and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and you've made them rich in the process, hoping and lusting after riches yourselves. The religious hierarchy, whether it be massive like the Catholic “Church” or some of the larger denominations, or just a pastor in a small local “Church” that inserts himself between you and the True Mediator of the New and Better Covenant, Jesus Christ, have been deceived, and now deceive whoever stays in their man-made temples (2Ti 3:13), teaching for doctrine the traditions of men and not the Commandments of God (Mat 15:2-6, Mar 7:8-13, Col 2:8).

Think Christian, think hard, pray and ask for God's Wisdom (Jas 1:5), His Holy Spirit leading you to all truth (Joh 16:13). Remember how God called Abraham out of his homeland (Gen 12:1)? Remember that Church means a called out body of believers, not an physical, material institution (see Strong's G1577). Near the end of the book of Revelation God is calling His People out yet again (Rev 18:4). The “Church” has fallen away from God (2Th 2:3), is conformed to the world (Rom 12:2, 2Th 2:10-12), and even frequently commits spiritual fornication with the world (Rev 14:8, 17:2, 17:4, 18:3, 18:9, 19:2)! The worst is yet to come for the so-called “Church”. Just as He destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD, He IS going to do the same to the Harlot Church and those that do not harken and obey His command to come out of her!

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Think of all the false doctrine's this man-made religious institution called the “Church” has given you? Isn't it obvious that if you stay in her you'll be physically destroyed? Following that logical conclusion, won't your soul also be relegated to the Lake of Fire as well? Yes, of course it will, but, it doesn't have to be that way. Care enough about God’s Word to study it, rightly divide it (2Ti 2:15) and recognize where you should be and where you shouldn't be, whom you should seek fellowship with and who not to (2Co 6:14)  A Christian must know who they are in Christ!

1Pe 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people;  that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1Pe 2:10  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Come out of the “Church”, warn others to do the same. Accept your spiritual birthright, you are the Israel of God, you, the believer in Christ, not the unbelievers who call themselves Jews and Abraham’s descendants. As for them, pray for them and preach the good news to them, don't help them to store up God's wrath against themselves, as they are surely doing now.

When the Messiah started His ministry He said He came only for the “lost sheep of Israel”. They were lost sheep because their “shepherds” had led them astray:

Jer 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.

Join me and my brothers and sisters as we seek to call today's lost sheep of the true Israel of God out of the “Church”, join us in the true Israel of God, and come out of the man-made temples of false doctrines, idol worship and spiritual fornication.

Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Pray always,

Daniel Mark
