The Antichrist Church that is Organized Religion
There is an increasing majority of people who are leaving the organized religion of attending “church.” They are compelled to leave because they can no longer conform to the popular accepted system. For some, they can no longer by good conscience accept the popular religious concepts and traditions they once held. There is something in them wanting to defy what it is to be a good “club” member.
The modern “church” has become a place of tradition that holds precious memories for many. They may have grown up in it with their esteemed pastor, even accepted his the call to the altar, and have been indoctrinated with the denominational ideology of that belief group. They are perfectly content with their form of "worship" that consists of belonging to a building on a prime piece of real estate filled with a clergy of professional ministers, elders, board members, etc… that plan all the activities and events for you. As you attend these activities, it is deemed that you are doing “good works” and “pleasing God” in support of "church."
This article is not meant for those who believe that “church” is a building as it will bring offense, but for those who are wrestling with the concept of "church" and the disillusionment of organised religion that is the modern “church”.
Listen and Obey
There is only one ekklesia with Jesus Christ as the head, and all others are the counterfeit of Satan.
"This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him." – Matthew 17:5
The true Gospel of the kingdom of God has nothing to do with a particular building, but has to with those who listen and obey. Without obeying the Holy Spirit, the rule of the clergy will take over instead. To be a true participator in expanding the kingdom of God requires being under the authority of God rather than popular views of man-made ideologies and their hierarchical structures. This means that our wills need to conform to God’s will, not to man.
There is an “angel of light” that has infiltrated the modern “church” whose sole purpose is to deceive the genuine church of Jesus Christ. Through deception, many people flood through the doors of organized religion and enter into the spiritual city of Babylon, which is the government of Satan who has control and reign over all those who enter.
There are many conversions of winning souls for the “kingdom” within the "church" building, but the unfortunate fact is that many become members and citizens of Babylon instead of citizens of New Jerusalem. Their minds that have no been renewed; therefore, they will defend their carnal ways of doing things. In contrast, there is also a movement that is going on behind the scenes of modern “Christianity” where the Holy Spirit is drawing many out of the oppressive religious harlot church system. There are those who can relate to others without the need for meeting, or attending a fancy building with salaried pastors and man-made programs that perpetuate the kingdom of Babylon.
There is only one ekklesia that Jesus Christ is building that consists of overcomers. They are in one accord in Jesus Christ. They are exclusive to those who are one of God’s children. They not only believe in Jesus, but obey Him too. They do not conform to diversified doctrines and traditions that are popularly spewed from the pulpits, but are true citizens of New Jerusalem. They have left and discarded the doctrines, traditions and practices that are contrary to the Word of God. They give Jesus Christ precedence over everything that they do and believe all of the things that He has said in His Word.
And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: "Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth's abominations." And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I marveled greatly. But the angel said to me, "Why do you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her. – Revelation 17:3-7
Babylon is described as a woman who is adorned with gold that looks beautiful on the surface and deceptively appears to be the ekklesia, but beneath the surface she is full of impurities and abominations. Many are attracted by her seductive ways and regal appearance. Because she appears to be too sincere to be false, many “Christians” enter into the oppressive captivity of Babylon believing that it is the New Jerusalem. Babylon the Great rules over all the denominations and branches of organized religion that promotes a hierarchical worldly system of government. Many are held captive in spiritual Babylon. This captivity is rooted in the traditions of man created by Satan.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. – 1 John 2:15-16
We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. – 1 John 5:19
All of the elements of society is in control and power of Satan. When man uses the system of the world within the "church," it conforms to the spirit of the world instead of God. Satan subtly deceives those into believing that the “glory of God” manifests in expensive building only when members attend and give wealth to their clergy and programs that promote lusts of the flesh with show biz style entertainment. Satan has succeeded in distracting many to behave and think like the world instead of having the mind of Jesus Christ.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.– Romans 12:2
It is only by coming to the place of a renewed mind through the grace of Jesus Christ that we are able to discern the religious worldly ideology of Babylon. All those who enter into the harlot city will participate in the sins of organized religion that is ruled by the Antichrist spirit that indirectly denies Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Satan desires to make his members and citizens comfortable in their riches and luxury with fancy buildings that have all the latest technologies, air-conditioning, a glorious sound system with a fancy pulpit upon the stage to glorify man’s kingdom.
“Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped high as heaven,
and God has remembered her iniquities. – Revelation 18:4-5
And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth.” – Revelation 18:24
Many "believers" will remain in spiritual Babylon and die there because they never knew the difference between the real and Satan’s greatest counterfeit. The majority of “Christians” are seduced by the harlot because they have followed after the appeal of their natural minds. They may evangelize, but will only grow their numbers bound in captivity within Babylon, just like the Jews when they also were in captivity.
The Holy Spirit is drawing more and more out of the traditional "church" system to become overcomers. They have heard God’s voice and want to be prepared for His return by making themselves ready. They have heeded the call to come out of submission of the world system and overcome it.
It is important to examine what you truly love and the objects of your affection. The leaders who boast their denominations with membership, evangelism, healing, and attendance are manifesting pride, not humility. The modern “church” is equivalent to the great tower of Babylon with all the comforts that appeal to the carnality of the flesh and the pride of man.
One of the important distinctions between the Kingdom of God and Babylon is that one is invisible and the other is visible. It is difference between seeing with the eyes of the flesh, or of the Spirit.
Babylon is written on the foreheads of its citizens from the brainwashing of the corrupt traditions of man. Many who come out of her through renewing their minds realise the disillusionment of many who cannot imagine being a follower of Jesus Christ apart from the harlot system. The good news is that once the shackles of organized religion come off there is so much freedom and clarity. Unfortunately, those who leave one system are often are enticed by another tower, or they attempt to build one themselves.
The traditions and practices that many have accepted within the traditional "church" system are rooted in the ideologies of ancient Babylon. Many are ignorant and blind to this knowledge because they have not compared, contrasted or questioned the teachings of the spiritual and religious leaders with the Word of God. The ekklesia are built on the foundation of Jesus Christ with a mind set on listening to the Holy Spirit and obeying His Word.
The Antichrist "church" is a blatant departure from God and His Word. It is an inward and outward corruption that manifests in conforming to the world. Once the salt of the earth with its preservation capabilities leave, the world will ultimately climax in corruption. The apostate Antichrist "churches" are under the leadership of devil inspired men, and the god in whom they serve is Satan. Many have joined the "church" that call itself "Christian," yet is in spiritual adultery with the godless pagan practices of the world. They are like Judas Iscariot (son of perdition) who profess to follow Christ, but deny the Son of God.

- Church Government
Submitting to God requires discernment and understanding. It is not about conforming to a religious institutionalized system of the modern “church” where you become a slave to the traditions of man.
- The Veil of Deception
God has been replaced in the modern "church" with a counterfeit god, who is in direct opposition to Jesus Christ and the church body. The counterfeit is a trinity of three spirits: the matriarch spirit, the Jezebel spirit, and the witchcraft spirit.
- The Seven Thunders of God - 1
There is a sense of urgency, as God is speaking to His people in these last days. The seven thunders of God are vital and relevant to His plan for His people.
