... 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.
