Lies Disguised as "Truth" in the False Church System
There a two types of "churches" that are manifest today. One (church) incorporates the system of the world, and the other (the ekklesia) are simply led by the Holy Spirit. The distinction can be made on who, or what is the authority for making decisions. Are we to cast our votes concerning the issues of God, or is there already a standard and guideline for the "church" already? Why is it that what most people call “church” is a compromise to true faith in practice?
The modern “church” promotes a cesspool of false doctrines; it is no longer a safe place to attend any man-made building that has been erected on every other street corner. Preachers shout from the pulpits that we will receive whatever we ask for if we have enough faith. It is the will of God that He will give us whatever we ask for. We are told that we can take over the world for Jesus Christ before He returns. We can attain power and do even greater miracles than the Apostles did.
Many people have come out from these false teachings more confused than when they went in. They are not sure of what they believe and practice because they have never known what simplicity and purity towards Jesus Christ is.
For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. – 2 Corinthians 11:2-3
Satan does not want people to know that Jesus Christ is our headship and covering, he wants you to believe that it is your pastor. He wants the masses to focus solely on the words of the pastor instead of continuing to abide in His Word. God is a jealous God and does not want people’s affections leaning towards their pastor with their loyalty, allegiance and passions. The worship of the clergy has become an epidemic in the “church” world and is a sign of apostasy.
When we love man and their traditions more than we love Jesus Christ, the true faith is compromised. True love (agape) is about standing up for what is right without the fear of man. The world wants everyone to tolerate each other and not offend each other out of “love.” Unfortunately, this “love” is counterfeit as it accepts blatant lies over the truth. True love (agape) for God and others is being willing to rebuke falsehood and accept that you will receive rejection from others. The preaching of the true Gospel comes with suffering and persecution. If you are not, it is not true.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15
There are two "churches" that are in the world; one is of the world. The one that preaches the religion of attending a certain building is married to a substitute for Jesus Christ. Their sole purpose is the advancement of their worldly kingdoms on earth, rather than being ready for the coming of our Lord. They do not want to give up their world treasures; therefore, they incorporate them into their seeker friendly doctrine. The things of this world are their reward. Just take a step back and take a look; they have it. All it takes is a simple walk through their doors and you will hear the preachers selling from their pulpit a way for people to get the good life they think they deserve.
The ekklesia at this moment are facing trials and persecution for standing on truth and not partaking in the carnality of this fallen world. They have seen the thorns and thistles that the fake substitute produces and are persecuted for standing against it. They understand that the Holy Spirit is not a product of commerce and that wolves in sheep’s clothing abuse the Word of God for their own advancement by pandering their carnal delicacies.
Many people fail to understand that displays of power does not necessarily mean that it is the work of the Holy Spirit, nor do they have any clue on what it means to reject those who uphold false doctrine.
“‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. – Revelation 2:2
I bet 99.9% have never heard this above verse taught from the pulpit in the modern “church.” Has anyone told you that displays of power done in Jesus’ name does not guarantee that the Holy Spirit is being represented?
It is only through the precepts of God’s Word via the Holy Spirit that we can gain understanding of the false ways of the world. His Word is the lamp unto our feet and a light to our path. Chasing after the false signs and wonders and miracles is the wide road that leads into idolatry. Having the mind of Jesus Christ does not equate with pulpit peacocks who boast of their works with the latest fashionable spirituality as a means to attaining “God.”
Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of rivalry, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment. – Philippians 1:15-17
It should be noted that Paul is speaking of two parties in these verses. One speaks truth with good intentions and the other speaks truth with evil intentions. It is imperative to understand that people might teach right doctrine, but with wrong motives. In contrast, there are those who have right motives, but teach wrong doctrine. There are those that preach the Gospel correctly, but fail in discipleship. They can create great numbers in membership, but fail in discipling others to learn the ways of Jesus Christ. The true Gospel is preaching Jesus Christ and making disciples of the nations.
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. – Galatians 1:6-10
The additives of the traditions of man appeals to everyone, but distorts the Gospel. Many do not realise that those who consistently practice a lifestyle that is not in alignment with the true Jesus Christ and His Gospel are children of Satan. It should not be a question of not knowing whether it is, or isn't of God. The truth should be ingrained within us to know what the leaven is. Many “church” leaders have laid down their swords of truth and have become negligent by compromising to, and allowing tolerance. They want to be accepted and more well liked and feed off of the accolades of man. A true leader will speak up and stand on truth no matter what the cost. The standard of Scripture can address any issue; therefore, any true leader should not submit to the bullying tactics and peer pressure, nor appeal to the opinions of man unless they are filtered through God’s Word first
A false leader can lead many to spiritual suicide. Unless people are taught to test everything and hold on to what is good, there will always be deception. Although something may work, it does not necessarily equate to truth. It must be tested first on God’s standard. The false revivals that are promoted today are advertised on people’s personal experiences rather than the words of the Apostles that have already been spoken in God’s Word. Many of the signs and wonders that are taught and promoted are not even found in Scripture, but on deeper research are found in occult activities. Many are ignorant because they have never been discipled on how to weigh and test to discern the truth.
You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”? – James 4:4-5
I believe that the “churches’ that are committing spiritual adultery will face great tribulation. Their Gnostic doctrines bilk people of money. They promote that you can “discover” the secrets and mysteries of God through their special “anointed” ministries. These teachings are not of God, but the depths of Satan. There are no new revelations, or mysteries; God has already given us the doctrine of grace that we are to hold fast to till Jesus Christ returns.
Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works – Revelation 3:22
One of the evilest forces seducing the "church" today is the Jezebel spirit that is leading the masses into spiritual adultery. Pastors have become spiritual eunuchs who are controlled by her power and seduction. It is a deception that leads many from perusing godliness into iniquity.
If more people had the attitude to examine Scriptures and filter all their questions, feelings and opinions through it, they would not be swayed or captivated by seducing spirits. Unfortunately, not many have the fear of God in them to contend for truth no matter what the cost. The eternal destiny of many are at stake. People must be willing to reject and disregard people who teach otherwise and hold on to teachings of Jesus Christ and His Apostles. We are called to persevere to the end. If you are not persevering in the faith, I would question whether it is the true faith.
