Corrupt Church Government
There are a lot of "Christians" who have taken on the worldly structures and authority ideologies that comes from the rule of Satan. By embracing these concepts, they are considered unacceptable for God’s Kingdom. Anytime there is rule over others by enforcement through decision, opinion, subservience and obedience without question, it is a satanic deception. Many out of fear that they might not be pleasing God will submit to a salaried ordained ministers. They are taught not to question their authority, even when their demands are ungodly and unbiblical. They think that they are pleasing God by submitting to man. Blind submission to unquestioned obedience is a hindrance to spiritual growth and advancement into God’s Kingdom.
The government of the Kingdom of God has no worldly leaders in it that demand submission.
Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves,you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. – Romans 6:16-18
Submission to the right authority is good, but the wrong kind is foolishness. Submitting to God requires discernment and understanding that Jesus Christ takes precedence over everything. It is not about conforming to a religious institutionalized system of the modern “church” where you become a slave to the traditions of man in a worldly hierarchical system that is about business, domination and coercion.
The Kingdom of God does not have any of the concepts and principles of the world in it; therefore, its function and nature is in opposition to Satan’s kingdom (Babylon). Anything that is called “church” that does not produce, or represent peace and joy that comes from the Holy Spirit should be scrutinized. Many are held captive in religious bondage in the spiritual kingdom of Babylon who are spiritually corrupted. They cannot mature and are often in constant conflict between the Holy Spirit disagreeing with the religious system of the world. There will always be conflict with the authority structures under man.
Why do think there is so many religious denominations and belief systems?
The Nature of the Kingdoms
And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers. But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,and whoever would be first among you must be your slave,even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Matthew 20:24-28
Expanding the Kingdom of God is having victory over the kingdoms of the world, but this will not happen until more people listen and obey Jesus Christ. If our King says it in His Word, then it should be settled. The false counterfeit Antichrist "church" will use Scripture verses to contradict what Jesus Christ has said because they are bound to worldly concepts. They do not understand that those who lead among the ekklesia are not lords over others, but servants. Jesus Christ never coerced or forced submission; He gave instructions, but gave His disciples the free will to follow, or disobey them.
The nature of the Kingdom of Babylon and the Kingdom of God are in direct opposition to each other in both authority and spirit. The Gospel of the Kingdom of God is to boldly proclaim the Good News, but never to enforce and coerce those to follow it. Spiritual authority is not about controlling other people. Those who enter into God’s Kingdom are those who voluntarily submit to God’s will with reverence, love and respect.
Godly spiritual authority does not behave like the worldly authorities. Many people’s spiritual lives are destroyed because they are ignorant of this. They do not understand that there is no such thing as clergy and laity in God’s Kingdom. All of God’s children who are priests have direct access to God and do not need professional ministers to approach God for them. It is the pagan and heathen that need priests to approach their gods. The Church of Babylon divides and separates people into different classes of people. They believe that the titles of prophet, apostle, healer, miracle worker, pastor, teacher, etc… can be manufactured just like any other profession.
Reconciling Spiritual Authority with the Mind of Jesus Christ
The natural mind cannot reconcile being in a position of authority without being able to exercise the authority over others. It is only by having a renewed mind that this makes sense in God’s Kingdom. Jesus Christ is the perfect example of Kingdom authority who exercises His love for others whether they were in opposition to Him or not.
True spiritual authority comes from the manifestation and objective demonstration of the nature of Jesus Christ. Any title that has been bestowed on someone by other men comes from the system of Babylon. Those in God’s Kingdom are recognized by their humility and service to others. A pastor in Satan’s kingdom requires support for His preaching and livelihood. "Attendance" means that you support his theology and concepts. Corrupt religious leaders have no desire to be corrected, or rebuked from other disciples in God’s Kingdom because they cannot be discipled themselves; therefore, they are practitioners in the kingdom of Babylon.
True submission is about being transformed and conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. It is the process of renewing our minds into mature spiritual men/women who are no longer babes, but know how to be led by the Holy Spirit.
Levels of Authority
There are different levels of authority that take precedence over others. By understanding the right order will give freedom with the ability to submit to authority in a wise way.
First, God is first and foremost of importance to submit to. He is the King of His Kingdom; therefore, what He says is paramount. Second, the Word of God is the standard that we use to weigh and test our walk and relationship with Him. Third, is our understanding of what Scripture says. Fourth, is our conscience under God. Lastly, it is other Christians and secular authorities.
Our own conscience under God is more important than the demands from a clergy member.This means that any government authority, husband, pastor, Pope, etc.., are below the authority scale of your conscience under God. Our faith is about believing something in our heart; therefore, it is not about someone telling you what you should believe. When we go against the convictions that God has given us we are in sin.
I believe God is disturbing the hearts of the “church members” who are in spiritual Babylon to come out of the worldly religious system into the freedom that is in the spiritual New Jerusalem. The inadequacy in bondage will urge those to move out of their demonized deception amongst the unruly masses into truth. Often the transition will manifest in manipulation, rejection, persuasion, coercion and a maligning spirit as Satan does not want to lose ground. The professional pastor who has made kingdom for himself in the “church” building will go into protection mode to deter others so they will not see the light too. Although the rejection may be rough, obeying the Lord over the traditions of man and their concepts will bring you out of spiritual blindness that will open your eyes to the true grace of Jesus Christ that will bring knowledge, understanding, wisdom, peace and joy.
It is important to love and pray for those who are in spiritual captivity and not forget them. Although they will oppose, slander and pray soulish prayers out of their spiritually blind carnal mindset, we must pray God’s blessing in their lives that they too will come out of the corrupt religious bondage of Babylon.
