Corrupt Church Government
There are a lot of people who call themselves Christians who have taken on the worldly structures and authority ideologies of the world. Unfortunately, by embracing this system, will be considered unacceptable for God’s Kingdom. Anytime there is rule over people by enforcement through decision, opinion, subservience and obedience without question, it is a religious satanic deception. Many fear that they might not be pleasing God unless they fall under the submission of a salaried ministers, or other church clergy. They are taught not to question authority, even when their demands are ungodly and unbiblical. They think that they are pleasing God by submitting to self-appointed men to be mediators between them and God. They fail to understand that blind submission and unquestioned obedience to church hirelings is a hindrance to spiritual growth and advancement into the Kingdom of God.
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 Christ takes precedence over everything. It is not about conforming to a religious institutionalized church system where you become a slave to the traditions of man in a worldly hierarchical framework.
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 (spiritual Babylon). Many are held captive in religious bondage because they have been spiritually corrupted and cannot mature under man's authority structures.
Why do think there are 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 about coming out of the kingdom initiatives of the world by being obedient to the way of Christ. Those in the false counterfeit antichrist church will twist Scripture to justify their rebellious behaviours because they are bound to worldly concepts. They do not understand that those who lead among the ekklesia do not lord themselves over others, but are servants. Christ never coerced, or forced submission, but gave those who were willing to follow him instructions with a the free will to either follow, or disobey them.
The nature of the kingdom of spiritual Babylon and the Kingdom of God are in direct opposition to each other in both authority and spirit. Preaching the Gospel is to boldly proclaim the Good News, but never to enforce, coerce, or demand those to follow it. Having spiritual authority is not about controlling people. Those who enter into God’s Kingdom are those who voluntarily submit to God’s will with reverence, love and respect towards Him through Christ.
Godly spiritual authority does not behave like the world authorities. Many people’s spiritual lives have been because they have been deceived into believing that church clergy are part of God’s Kingdom. All of God’s children are priesthood have direct access to God by what Christ has done. we no longer need the Old Testament practice of a special priest-class to approach God on our behalf. It is the pagan and heathen tradition that need priests to approach the gods on the people's behalf. The counterfeit antichrist church system divides, separates and ranks people into different classes.
Reconciling Spiritual Authority with the Mind of 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. Christ is the perfect example of exercising Kingdom authority and 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 Christ. Those in God’s Kingdom are recognized by their humility and service to others, not a title attached to their name requiring a salary to do any work.
True submission is not to religious men, but about being transformed and conformed to the image of Christ. It is the process of having a renewed mind growing in maturity being led by the Holy Spirit.
Levels of Authority
- There are different levels of authority that should be considered. Having an understanding of the right order will bring freedom, not bondage.
- God is first and foremost of importance to whom we are submit to through Christ. He is the King of His Kingdom; therefore, what He says is paramount.
- 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 with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
- Our conscience under God.
- Other followers of Christ and secular authorities.
Our own conscience under God is more important than any of the demands counterfeit church clergy. Our faith is not about someone else telling us what to believe, but what is stated by Christ and the apostles.
The conviction of the Holy Spirit will disturb and convict the hearts of those who are in spiritual Babylon. God is calling those who will heed Him to come out of the worldly religious systems into the freedom of allowing Christ to be the head. The inadequacy in bondage will urge those to move out of their demonic deception into truth.
Many are afraid to come out because they will feel the manipulation, rejection, persuasion, coercion and a maligning spirit of the indoctrinated because Satan does not want to lose ground in his control over the masses. The professional clergy who have made kingdoms for themselves within their four walls will go into protection mode and bully whom they call the "decenter."
Although the rejection is a rough process, it is only through obeying God over the traditions of man and their concepts that will cure spiritual blindness. God will open your eyes to the true grace of Christ that will bring knowledge, understanding, wisdom, peace and joy.
It is important to love and pray for those who are in spiritual captivity of religious self-appointed men and not forget them. Although they will oppose, slander you in their spiritually blind carnal mindset, we must pray that God will open their eyes in their lives that they too will heed the call to come out of the corrupt religious church bondage of spiritual Babylon.
