Part 5 – Do Not Be Deceived – The Godboxes
Part 5 – Do Not Be Deceived – The godboxes
In this study we continue looking at scripture truths that must be correctly understood to become a son of God.
Now we will turn to the current day and the condition of the earth from the perspective of God. If you are not filled with the Holy Spirit of God through Christ YOU WILL NOT be able to understand or receive these truth. In fact you will be angry with the messenger but your anger will not be at the messenger but at God as these are what He sees when He looks at the earth today.
Throughout the ages of man as found in the scriptures, we have seen that men were able to interact directly with God in the beginning. Then in a later age men did not want to interact with God directly and asked God to give them men to talk to and relate to God for them. God warned them that that would be a mistake but they insisted so God gave them Kings and Priests to control them and to go to God in their stead. He selected the Israelites to be His people for a season and gave them Laws to control them until the end of that season (age). Then when He had had enough of their disobedience and complaining. When they had proven there was not a man of them that could fulfill the Laws He had given them. He as He had been telling them He would all along, sired a son among them and sent Him, the MAN JESUS CHRIST, to fulfill the LAW AND END THE AGE. But as usual they did not believe the things That God had told them or the things that this Jesus did that proved He was sent from God. They did not believe the things that Jesus spoke and said He was an imposter and worse, they even accused Him being of satan. Of course they then did what He said they would do and KILLED This SON of God. But since they had no comprehension of what His mission was because they were blinded by their unbelief. They were amazed when He defeated death and rose from death on the third day as He said He would, further fulfilling scripture and proving who He really is. He had accomplished His mission, He had defeated death and brought to men what He came to Bring. He brought to All that would accept and follow His terms, Life, eternal life, the life Adam had so carelessly thrown away by his disobedience.
The beginning of this age
John 10:7-10 Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
So now we have come to the close of the age of Israel and have moved into the next age, the new covenant age, the age of the rule of Christ, the final age of man.. And now we must look at, understand and adapt to the ways of God for this age, no rules from other ages apply here. Jesus Has been given ALL AUTHORITY on heaven and earth for this age and all the authority of God is in the hands of JESUS alone until He returns it to God at the end of the age, the judgment. If you do not correctly understand these things YOU can NOT BECOME a disciple of Christ and therefore a son of God.
Matt 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
1 Cor 15:23-28 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27 For "He has put all things under His feet." But when He says "all things are put under Him," it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28 Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
We see when we study the scriptures we call the new testament, many warnings to “DO NOT BE DECEIVED”. We ARE TOLD WHO AND WHY AND HOW THEY WILL TRY TO DECEIVE US.
We have to study these scriptures that tell us about THIS AGE WE ARE LIVING IN and what is required of us in this age.
First you MUST understand that you cannot get a direct connection to God in this age. Then you must understand that only ONE MAN can connect you to God. NO OTHER MAN can do it.
1 Tim 2:5-6 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
Headship in this age
Then you must understand there are NO RULERS in this age. Those who have authority FROM GOD THROUGH Christ in this age are not going to lead, control or take advantage of you, they are going to SERVE you and ALL of the body of Christ. In fact the apostle Paul said it best when he declared they are to be BONDSERVANTS of Christ as He was. A bondservant was not an ordinary servant, a bondservant is one who was a servant, but was given his freedom and decided he would rather remain a servant than be free. He was marked by puncturing his earlobe to distinguish the difference, He serves because he wants to not because he has to. As an act of Love.
Mark 10:42-45 “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. 44 And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."
Now we move on, you must understand that there is a matter of headship in this age. Who is OVER WHO. We find that NO MAN IS OVER ANOTHER MAN (MALE). Here is the order of headship for this age.
1 Cor 11:2-4 Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you. 3 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
Do you understand the significance of this? You must if you desire to enter eternity. No man but Christ can be over (in charge of, in control of) ANY OTHER man. No man other than the father or husband is over ANY woman. And only God can be over, tell Jesus what to do. No man can make, change or adapt any doctrine of Christ. They can make only false doctrines, the doctrines of men. And doctrines of men have NO PLACE in the kingdom of God.
The end of the previous age
Matt 27:50-51 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. 51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom;
Remember the most Holy Place in the Tabernacle of meeting in the age of the Israelites. (if not stop here and study the Holy of Holies in the law) The place were the ark of the covenant between God and Israel was kept, behind the veil. The place where the High priest went once a year to meet with God for the people. The place that he went with a rope tied to his leg to drag him out if God killed him, because no one else could go in there. The box that was where God met with them.
The veil was supernaturally torn from top to bottom. There also were earthquakes and other signs of God's anger at the death of His son by the evil clergy of the day. But three days later at the resurrection of His son, God was in heaven where He currently resides and His son was on the earth, with ALL of the Authority of God in His hands. That was the end of the age that required each to go to where God was to meet the men that would go to Him for them. A new Age has begun. Jesus is in charge of the age and God has sent The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God and of Jesus to all who will accept it on The terms that Jesus the Lord of this age requires. By following all that Jesus requires of us we become of ONE SPIRIT with God and Jesus and ALL other true disciples of Christ. That makes us sons of God. Sons of God will be the only man that is allowed entry into Gods eternal Kingdom. Only they will regain the eternal life that Adam forfeited by his disobedience. Any thing or anyone that teaches or tries to bring into this age a doctrine that is not of Christ is NOT OF GOD AND IS acting as AN AGENT OF SATAN. God moved out of the box. Jesus never lived or met with man in the box. Jesus always had a direct connection to men because HE IS A MAN SUCH AS WE ARE. There is NO mention of a “Church building”(godbox) or “clergy” as a part of this age. It simply does not exist in scripture.
This Current age of man
In this current age of man the interaction between man and God is this. GOD is in heaven and is the head over Jesus. Man is on earth and Jesus is head of the man. The Holy Spirit is in God, in Jesus and in ALL who have invited it into themselves and follow it. This indwelling Holy Spirit is what make men of ONE ACCORD with God, Jesus and each other as required by Jesus in order to be His disciple and a son of God. No man other than Jesus can represent you before God, fill you with the Holy Spirit or make you a son of God. You do not have to go anywhere to meet with God, you meet with Jesus, our connection to God, anywhere anytime you desire. You meet with Jesus through His Spirit, which is God's Spirit which is your controlling Spirit if you are a disciple of Christ. If you do not have and are not controlled by the Spirit of Jesus which is the Spirit of God you cannot be related to God or any of His sons. If you do not understand this you are not filled with the Spirit of God.
Here is where the gate is hard to see and the path becomes difficult for christians
Now comes the hard part for those who have been and are being deceived to see and understand. But understand it you must if you truly desire to enter the eternal kingdom of God. God will never again live in a godbox. God has never wanted to live apart from man. We see the proof of this in the garden. In the garden God met with man wherever he was, whenever either decided to. God left earth when He could not stand the corruption that man brought. In the age of Israel He stayed away because man did not want him there. But in the eternal age to come He is going to move to and live ON earth AMONG His sons forever.
Throughout the new covenant scriptures we see that the earth is becoming more corrupt and will continue to become more corrupt until. As in the days of Noah, God has had enough and ends this age. The end of this age will bring the judgment of God. We still have time, a little time, only God knows how much time and even Jesus does not know when time as we know it will end. But we know that when time ends only the people who have endured to the end and whose names have been written in His book of life will enter the eternal kingdom of God. ALL whose names are not found in His book wall be cast into the lake of fire and be destroyed by it.
Now we need to look at what is professing to be God's church in this age
“godbox members” that are still with me need to buckle up your seat belts and pay close attention here. Everyone should stop here and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth before continuing.
We have seen above that only the sons of God can inherit eternity. We also see that the only way to be a son of God is to be a disciple of Christ. We have also looked at what Jesus requires if you desire to be His disciple. Have you noticed there is NO MENTION in this covenant of clergy or going to the godbox as a requirement. Have you ever wondered why? Let me show you why.
The godbox system was a temporary experiment by God to show man he could not have a relationship with God on his terms. It did not work, men corrupted it. Because of the influence of man God could no longer have a part in it. So God ended it, the whole “godinthebox” thing (then called tabernacle system). That was the age of the Israelites. Then the only man able to fulfill ALL of the law and end it, Jesus, defeated death and became the owner of eternal life and was given all authority over this age in order to give man one last chance to meet God on His terms and regain his lost eternal life.
That is what this age of Christ is all about, it is THE LAST CHANCE FOR MEN TO SUBMIT TO GOD before He pulls the plug and ends this age. In this age there is no godbox to visit because Gods residence is in HIS sons and He is always present with them.
What is the purpose of this age?
This age is not about men building something for God. Not about building great monuments (godboxes) to men by claiming they are for God. Not about gathering supposed believers together in one place to see who can gather the greatest number. Or the largest collection. Not about belonging to a glorified social club. These ARE ALL the WORKS OF MAN, God left the box over 2000 years ago and He will not return. Jesus came to set people free but deceitful men are putting people in BONDAGE to men. They brought back the godbox that God stepped out of at the cross.
Scripture is clear. GOD does not have anything to do with division of His people, that is a work of men serving their flesh and satan. ALL denominations and other groups that separate man are an abomination to God because of many things but the main one is that are all founded on division over doctrine. There is no such division possible if ALL are full of the Holy Spirit and following the Spirit. There are not doctrines for baptist, then some for methodists, and some for assemblies etc., those are all inventions of apostate men. In this age there are the doctrines (all of them) of Christ, there are no others that God will associate with. Following any other will alienate you from Christ.
1 Cor 1:10-13 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now I say this, that each of you says, "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Christ." 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
This is not a new thing it is ages old it is the fruit of apostate men. See it, they were saying I am a baptist, I am a Lutheran, I am a pauline. But the difference is Paul confronted and stopped it, today's church system accepted and expanded it. They made it acceptable, but GOD DID NOT.
Today's church (godbox) system is entirely a work of the flesh of men. There is No part of it that God can be a part of. There is no scripture that tells us to go and sit while men tell us their beliefs and back up what they believe with the work of other apostate men that agree with their doctrine without a thought if it is doctrine of man or of God. The new covenant says all days are equal and one is no more of God than another. We are to follow God every day, not just Saturday or Sunday depending on which man you follow, with a refresher maybe on Tuesday or Wednesday. Jesus Christ is Lord of this age, no other man has authority to say what God requires. There is no provision in scripture to adapt any of His doctrine to fit our desires or to neglect one of His because we do not like it. Its all or nothing, His way or the highway. God does not want you to return to the godbox looking for Him, He is not there and will never return, He is with YOU if you are a son of God. Scripture says He inhabits His people. You must understand the people in the godbox that are calling you ARE NOT HIS PEOPLE, His people are His sons and no others are His.
Matt 12:48-13:1 But He answered and said to the one who told Him, "Who is My mother and who are My brothers?" 49 And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, "Here are My mother and My brothers! 50 For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother."
Mark 3:33-35 But He answered them, saying, "Who is My mother, or My brothers?" 34 And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, "Here are My mother and My brothers! 35 For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother."
Jesus did teach in the tabernacle because He was trying to reach the jews but He NEVER called us to come to a godbox. He came to US. The godbox is an attempt by apostate men to regain the position over God's people that the priests had in the previous age. But Jesus ended that age and brought a brand new pattern for His age that must be followed by all that desire to be His disciples..
Who did Jesus appoint to make disciples of Christ
Matt 28:16-20 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Do you notice Jesus did not start a school and try to get men to attend it so He could make more disciples for himself. No, he spoke to His disciple, those that knew and understood Him and told them to go and make disciples. He gave them instructions on what to teach them. He did not want the elite (in their own minds) that would look to make something for themselves, He chose those He knew were true followers of him, men proven and trusted to do ALL He required of them with no thought of repayment. Only those who are true and proven disciples of Christ are trusted to make more disciples for Him. No others were entrusted with this responsibility.
This is who His disciples are and why they were entrusted with the Gospel
1 Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
Once you begin doing all He requires of you and are proven a true disciple of Christ, you are no longer a part of this world, you are set apart into citizenship in a different nation, a Holy nation, the kingdom of God, you are a Holy priest unto God through Christ and a son of God. And this qualifies and requires YOU to go and make disciples of Christ.
Who is this clergy in the godboxes and where is their authority from?
Who are those men? Those are men that do not believe that Jesus has the right to set the rules so they set their own. Of course they use His name as a come on, you know the old trick of men, bait and switch. They say all the right sounding phrases, they talk about scripture (using their own interpretation). They look for and find men that believe as they do and they parrot ech others teachings. They choose and select pieces from scripture that can be used to fit their beliefs. They are part of the divisions that claim to be of God but are false sons, not really sons of God but sons of some god somewhere named satan. These are the men we are warned to avoid by scripture These are the men that caused these words to be written, “do not be deceived”.
Luke 21:8 And He said: "Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He,' and, 'The time has drawn near.' Therefore do not go after them.
2 Cor 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
Eph 4:14-15 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —
Do you see that – TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO APOSTLES OF CHRIST-- They are Self Appointed, appointed by man not God, False apostles. They are ministers of satan the great deceiver and NOT OF CHRIST. Yet millions flock to their godboxes every week, fall over them, buy their books, give them their money and devotion, serve them and their programs and believe they are serving God. They are being deceived and enjoying their deception, having no clue that they have rejected Christ and God. And because they have not a love for the truth they have or will be sent a strong delusion from God so they have no choice but to believe the lies. Satan has won their souls as they attend the godbox of their choice and worship satan the god of the godboxes.
Attend the church of your choice this sunday
Sounds like a nice Christian message from God doesn't it. But have you ever tested it against scripture with the aid of the Holy Spirit? I have, 40 years ago, and guess what. It is not message from God, there is no scripture that tells us to attend a godbox. And if it were from God it would not say to attend anything of YOUR choice it would direct you to the place of His choice For you. Satan has struck again in hundreds, maybe thousands of godboxes all around the world, leading people to satans world and not the kingdom of God where Jesus and His disciples lead. A simple christian sounding message but it is from the father of christendom, satan. Only disciples of Christ can make disciples of Christ, no man ordained man can make a disciple of Christ, he will make you a disciple of those to whom he is a disciple and being a disciple of any other than Christ is becoming a disciple of satan.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED MY BELOVED BRETHREN.
But MY pastor has a doctorate and is a graduate of whatever college.
So what does that mean to Christ? Lets look. Hmm the original 12 apostles, what school was their degree from? Oh yes I remember, there was a medical doctor, fishermen hmm no degrees here and then there was the replacement, Paul with many degrees, but wait God had to knock him down, blind him and make him understand his degrees were of no value before he could become an apostle. Wow their apostleship did not come from schools of men, their understanding came from being filed with the Holy Spirit who leads them into all truth and doing ALL that Christ required of them and for some that was even an early and horrible first death.
We, the disciples of Christ have to live in this world but are not to become part of this world. The godbox system is an invention of man and is a part of this world of man nd because of that we cannot have any part in it if we desire to be disciples of Christ.
Lets look at the requirements for clergy in the godbox system
To be a member of clergy for the godbox system you must find a college with doctrines that you can agree with. Then you get your degree and try to find a godbox that needs clergy with your beliefs. Then you negotiate a price and benefits package that you can agree to and then you become their hireling clergy. If you find later that you can no longer agree with their changing doctrines (they all make changes from time to time) you will be up a creek and there is no paddle. You will have to go back to a school you can agree with for a new degree or get lucky and get a job where they believe you will be compatible.
Because this current day and age one of the things that they use to establish their credibility is the education, degrees ,etc of their clergy. But you must learn and understand what these degrees actually stand for and what their value really is. Their degrees and education are from institutions of men. Every single one of the institutions has at least one doctrinal difference with the others (unless they have multiples campuses of their own). If every one of them teaches a different set of doctrines from the doctrines of Christ then none of them can be teaching the true doctrine of Christ and all are in fact making disciples of themselves. There is only one doctrine of Christ and it is part of the ALL that Christ requires of His brothers and only those that know and do ALL of what He requires can become sons of God..
The next thing you must understand about these educations is that all schools follow one particular man or group of men and all their primary doctrines are from that man's understanding of what he was taught by other men or another spirit.
A true disciple of Christ has been taught by the Spirit of God and does not follow teaching of apostate men, he is led by only the Spirit of God. He has no doctrines of his own and no desire to make any. He is solely dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ because he is of ONE SPIRIT with Him. He tests all things to see if they be of God and rejects all that are not. He daily makes sure he is not being deceived.
In other words all the degrees, certificates, beliefs, anointings of men and any and every other thing you can receive from by and through men has ABSOLUTELY NO ETERNAL VALUE. THE only Anointing, understanding that has ANY eternal value MUST COME from THE HOLY SPIRIT of God through Christ. It will not include a car or a home or a boat or an airplane or a fancy benefit package or anything else that you can't take with you after the judgment, but it will include a map to the narrow gate, help to walk with you on the difficult narrow path at the end of which you will find your name has been written in the Lambs book of life. You will also inherit the earth and entry to the eternal kingdom to live with God and ALL His sons, two benefits that no man can provide for you.
Those that run and follow the godboxes and their clergy that squander your money and receive your honor are receiving their rewards as scripture says, from men and right now and they are the ones that will reach the end of their path, the wide, easy, fun path on which they enjoy the riches and airplanes and boats and exotic cars and yes some even exotic women who fall at their feet in awe of them, will have the surprise of all surprises. They will hear this words that they believe they could ever hear because of their great work in the godbox of man. “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness
Matt 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
All because they neglected to “test all things to see if they be of God” and did not heed the many warnings of Christ “do not be deceived”.
Do NOT Be Deceived my Beloved Brethren!!!!
