Going to Church is a Religious Trap
Organized religion comprises of people who desire to be led by men with special ecclesiastical titles. They are the lords, or the ruling class of the congregation who replace Christ as the Head of the brethren. This system allows the satanic lust for power to manifest among men who corrupt truth for their own personal gain as the people are attracted to their different baits and lures.
Who is First?
Unfortunately, those who insist on being first as a hireling are not servants, but thieves. They have not become the least, but desire to make servants, or members unto themselves. They are self-serving people who make a living off of your backs.
But they kept silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about WHO WAS THE GREATEST. And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” - Mark 9:34-35
Those who partake of the hierarchical church system are not led by Christ, but by who he called a 'hireling.' These people are led into premeditated man-made traditions and endeavors led by a mediator who is not Christ. This appointed mediator making the message of Christ of no effect as he bilks people of the monetary by merchandising the Gospel when Christ already paid for all in full.
I have written something to the ekklesia, but Diotrephes, WHO LIKES TO PUT HIMSELF FIRST, does not acknowledge our authority. – 3 John 1:9
An antichrist spirit manifests in those who desire to be first among men because they want to replace Christ's leading for their own. These types are easy to spot because they are found in church buildings everywhere and will always ask for the monetary either directly, or indirectly.
The antichrist spirit dwells in named religious buildings opposing anything that is Spirit led for the whims of men. Anything that does not conform to the denominational templates are deemed divisive to the cause.
An important question we must always ask ourselves,
Are we being led by the Holy Spirit, or by men?
There are many men who assume their supremacy over others and strive to give themselves a name.
Are you this type of person who gives into their desires?
What is called church is all about advertising man’s own self-righteousness in their communities to lure in the next customer through their doors. The more people herd through the doors, the more the money flows in. We should know this as the clergy’s lust for money is at its peak during the many pagan holidays throughout the year.
At the forefront of religious idolatry are the appointed men who have the spirit of Diottrephes lording the masses to spiritual death and ultimately God’s wrath. Unfortunately, many do not see church as a trap because they are baited into believing that they are protected behind their precious four-walls. God has never protected those who are under the guidance and authority of men who lust for money, power and control.
Have you ever considered why many choose to listen to self-appointed men rather than whom God has appointed to be King of kings and Lord of lords?
It is a futile attempt to come together to worship the one true God under the organization and umbrella of the authority of men.
Those among the ekklesia are Spirit led and do not recognize the authority of carnal men and women who turn the gifts of God into self-appointed titles.
Any assembly organized by religious hirelings is antichrist.
Walking in obedient faith is not about a religious template, but complete reliance on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. There is no need, or benefit of the liturgy of man-made ordinances, rites and membership obligations.
He said to them, “Then RENDER TO CAESAR THE THINGS THAT ARE CAESAR’S, and to God the things that are God’s.” - Luke 20:25
In likewise fashion, we must render what is of the antichrist spirit to the things that are antichrist, and to God the things that are God’s.
At the top of organized religion is Satan. He uses men with titles who love to lord over the people rather than serve them. They abuse Scripture by twisting it to fuel their carnal agendas revolves around the monetary on their elevated platforms.
You will notice that the precedent of the church system is that it must require financing before they can do anything. Funding and tithing is at the forefront of their actions and behaviours. They defy Kingdom principles and their products are antichrist spirit filled automatons called ‘Christians’ who are seared in harlot doctrines.
Unfortunately, most of the world fails to comprehend that those who have the fruit of the spirit point to the Kingdom of God, not religious man-made buildings.
The ekklesia of Christ understand that when the work of the Kingdom of God needs to be carried out, it is of no consequence whether there are finances or not. It is the hearts of carnal men in their futile pursuits of self-righteousness that need to see the flow of the monetary before they will even lift a finger to do anything.
Those who desire to walk as Christ did understand that financial is of no consequence when God calls them to do something. All that is required is knowing whether God has called you to do something and then walking it out in obedient faith. It's really that simple.
Don't listen to the fund raisers and their marketing tactics who want to lure and bait you into their man-driven agendas. Christ and the apostles had no need for, nor put any value on their faithless work.
Doing God’s work is about giving, not taking. It is about serving, not lording. It never points to a religious brand-name as a means to finance 'the work of God.' It is an antichrist spirit that demands finances before anything can be done. We should know them because the monetary is their god.
The true work of God is always possible, but the work of an antichrist will always demands contributions, sponsors, donations, tithes, pledges and any other financing tactic requiring the religious synod to 'drill for oil first' rather than first walking in obedient faith and taking heed to God’s instructions.
Beware of anyone who says, 'If it wasn’t for your generous contributions, we wouldn’t be able to do God’s work.' This was never about God’s work, but about stroking egos.
Making a Career Out of the Gospel
A follower of Christ is not a taker, but a giver. They do not focus on the temporal, but the eternal. They do not require someone with a man-made title to tell them what to do before they do the work of the Lord. It is simply about being obedient and using the gift God has given them any place, anywhere and at any time.
It is important to understand that God never calls anyone into a full-time salaried job for the Gospel. If you are personally financed to spread the Gospel, then your 'gospel' is antichrist. It is a carnal mind desires to become a hireling for the 'Kingdom of God' preaching 'Christ' and for personal gain.
Did you know that all Scripture that is used to support a salaried position in the body of Christ must been twisted out of context?
The phrase 'full-time ministry' is a crock. Someone who says that they want to devote all their time 'working for the Lord,' but requires pay to do it is an antichrist and a fraud. They betray the example of Christ and the apostles who freely gave of themselves to others.
Hirelings are traitors to the pure faith.
Millions of people partake of organized religion and sit quietly in their church pews to listen to a salaried antichrist called Pastor. The indoctrinated pew warmer does not understand that Christ is the one who organizes his people. When man attempts to do it, there will always be someone who desires special attention demanding to run the show. Anything that defies the leading of the Holy Spirit is antichrist.
Many are called, but few are chosen because of man’s desire to be great, to be recognized and wanting to stand out for their own glory. It is ego driven, not Spirit led.
To worship God in spirit and truth requires humility, not accolades from man. God does not respect the ego that requires a podium and offering baskets.
Christ handed around baskets of bread, not tithing plates.Can you see the clear distinction?
He must increase, but I MUST DECREASE. - John 3:30
Anything that is done within the framework of denominations and organized religion is a creation of man. It is void of the Holy Spirit. The framework of organized religion demands finances and leadership of salaried men.
Anyone who is filled with the Holy Spirit is in unity with Christ under the direct leadership of the one true Shepherd.
For we are NOT, like so many, PEDDLERS OF GOD’S WORD, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ. – 2 Corinthians 2:17
And constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, IMAGINING THAT GODLINESS IS A MEANS OF GAIN. – 1 Timothy 6:5
The system of church is a trap. Get out while you still can before it is too late.
Accessing Kingdom Resources, or Man’s Fund Raisers
To drive the point again, the problem with man-made religion is that in order to ‘God's work,’ they first use the market crier called Pastor to push for pledges, donations, tithes, or whatever other word they use to canvas the pew warmers to empty purses and wallets.
The true servant of God understands that they already have been given access to God’s resources.
Why would a servant of God leave the Kingdom storehouse and go out on their own to ‘drill for oil?’
When we call something ‘God's work’ then that is what it is. It only follows that it will be supported by God Himself. Accessing the Kingdom storehouse requires obedient faith, not going around extorting money from the gullible. What an insult to God and what is called a walk of faith.
What is called Christian labour today is simply something that done according to the size of the budget. Once the money is used up, the singing of ‘Kumbaya’ stops and the sob story begins that there is not enough money to continue the ministry until we see more pledges.
The church telethon is never-ending. You just have to wake up to figure this out.
This is the epitome of putting trust in man instead of God, is it not?
Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength - Jeremiah 17:5
The work that God assigns His servants to do has all the Kingdom resources already available to them. There is no need to continue to lobby for monies, or hold fund raisers. These are the carnal endeavors of human conception, but God has no use for the offerings of ‘Cain.’
Why would we need to pay anyone to do the work of God?
The work of God through His Son has been paid in full!
As citizen of the Kingdom of God who walks in faith and obedience already has access to God's unlimited resources. No pandering for money required, or asking permission from a hireling first.
The work of God is exactly what it is and does His works through His people as causal agents to spread the truth about His Kingdom. Think about it, if God does the work, then it would be an insult to believe that He would need our money for Him to do only what He can do.
Christ when he walked the earth was only able to do what he did by his Father working through him.
If man believes they need money to do God's work, then the only logical conclusion is that they somehow believe that God is dependent on them to get anything done. This is their delusion.
We can do nothing good unless God’s Spirit is working through us; otherwise, it is all in vain. Antichrist religion is about doing self-righteous works in Christ’s name. Ecclesiastical men are in charge claiming to be ministers of ‘righteousness,’ but can only do ‘God’s work’ after the money rolls in.
There is a much easier way. Throw out the clergy and follow the way of Christ where the price has already been paid.
The genuine Gospel has nothing to do with what we do, but everything to do with what Christ has done. The price has been paid.
Let’s go out and preach what Christ has done, not what your Pastor is doing.
It’s time to wake up. Paying someone for something that has already been paid for is foolishness.
Walking in through the doors of a church is trap.
Be careful, the bait and lures are always changing.
Are you a follower of Christ, or a hireling?
- Men with Titles in False Churches
The modern “church” is full of men with titles, but these professional titles that are pinned upon these men do not come from God, but men themselves.
- What You Call "Church" is Satan's Table
The “church” building is not the Lord’s Table because they emphasize special seating arrangements for those in special positions of authority.
- Church, the Theater of Hypocrisy
When the church institution is weighed and tested with the blueprint of the New Testament, it fails miserably. Their system is completely contrary to the record of the Apostles and Jesus Christ.
