Satan's Greatest Deception
There are more and more coming to realize that the church system is a counterfeit as the Holy Spirit draws them out of the man-driven religious system that have saturated most of the world. When one comes to the light of the truth, there is a great spiritual shift that takes place by moving from the hypocrisy of the mainstream pulpits to walking the narrow way.
At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, and many false prophets will arise and mislead many. – Matthew 24:10-11
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders that would deceive even the elect, if that were possible. See, I have told you in advance. – Matthew 24:24-25
What many fail to understand is that the counterfeit church system is Satan’s greatest deception. It not redeemable nor will it go away until Christ returns. The reason is for biblical prophecy to be fulfilled in the last days. Scripture has made it clear that false prophets would arise. They are here to stay and will abound in numbers because most religious people are actively seeking those who will tell them what they want to hear. They are even willing to pay them large sums of money to facilitate the carnality in their hearts. False preachers focus on their own self-interests and make merchandise of their followers instead of seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. They focus on supposedly ‘ruling with Christ’ in this age instead of suffering with Christ.
So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. – 2 Timothy 4:4
Lovers of Self
Today, most of the world including those within the church system are lovers of themselves. The greatest desire of men is to please themselves and make themselves look good. Men want to have it their own way instead of God’s way. Therefore, they have created a God and a Christ that bows to their needs. This is what is sold to the masses.
The lucrative marketing of their versions of ‘Jesus’ are built upon the altars of self. The ever-expanding religious market of selling the Gospel for lucre is big business. However, Christ already knew that this would come into fruition.
Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” – Luke 18:8b
The message of the cross has been cast aside for an adulterated Gospel that caters to self.
The true Gospel is considered ‘foolishness’ because it requires death to self so that Christ can reign supreme. The true Gospel will bring man to the end of himself. This is the only way he can become a disciple of Christ.
And whoever does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple. – Luke 14:27
The church system has ignored God’s imperative for their own self-preservation. This is the greatest law in the religious kingdoms of self.
Are you with Christ or are you with the self interests of someone else?
In this age, God has given men latitude with the choices they make and one day they will reap them according to their works.
Let the unrighteous continue to be unrighteous, and the vile continue to be vile; let the righteous continue to practice righteousness, and the holy continue to be holy.” “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each person according to what he has done. – Revelation 22:11-13
The church doors will not close and what is called ‘Christianity’ and it will not stop birthing false prophets. It is up to the believer that truly yearns to follow Christ to completely abandon spiritual Babylon. God has given us the choice to stay or leave. There is no in-between. To think you can continue to warm a pew and be a ‘light’ in what is called ‘church’ thinking it can be redeemed is like fasting and praying for the conversion of Satan. It just is never going to happen.
Those who want Christ above all else will hear his call to come out of the religious whore system and no longer be used as a tool of Satan to sell the greatest deception to mankind.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with him, and he with Me. – Revelation 3:20
Not many are willing to forsake their Laodicean lukewarmness and the spirit of mammon that they cherish. They are deaf to the call of Christ because they treasure their denominational church memberships more than the way of the cross. Somehow they believe the man-mad religious constructs are supposedly the way to the Father.
Many have pitched their tents in Babylon. This is not the way of the Father, but to the ‘father of lies.’
Many believe in the lie that since ‘we are not all perfect,’ God accepts compromise with the church system. However, light and darkness cannot co-exist together.
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light, for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth. Test and prove what pleases the Lord. Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. - Ephesians 5:8-11
The Narrative has Changed
Satan’s owns all of what is called ‘Christianity’ because he has succeeded in changing the narrative of Christ’s words. Once the words that the Father gave to Christ change, it means that Satan has control of the operation.
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. - 2 Corinthians 4:4
Satan’s game has been going on for a long time. When he tried to tempt Christ, Jesus knew and lived his Father’s words and this is why Satan had no hold or power over him. This is because Christ knew the narrative of His Father and he stuck to it.
I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming, and he has no claim on Me. But I do exactly what the Father has commanded Me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. – John 14:30-31
The counterfeit church system today controls the narrative. They know that this is the way they are able to achieve full control over a person. False teachers will push their denominational templates, creeds and doctrines while their minions conform to and parrot them.
This issue arose because some false brothers were brought in under false pretenses to spy on our freedom in Christ Jesus, in order to enslave us. We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel would remain with you. – Galatians 2:4-5
The apostles resisted the notions of the false teachers in their time. They were not nicey-nice and did not yield, submit or compromise even for a moment. They contended so that the truth of the Gospel would remain. The church system is getting away with their lies because not many are willing to stand up to and expose their false narratives.
Even from your own number, men will rise up and distort the truth to draw away disciples after them. Therefore be alert and remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears. – Acts 20:30-31
The narrative of Christianity today is dictated by Satan. They twist God’s word and upon this foundation comes the institution, the system and the hierarchical positions. Most Christian leaders are agents of an adulterated Gospel message because they sell it. Words that are found within Scripture have been redefined and do not have anything in common with the usage that Christ and the apostles used. For this reason, those within the mainstream church system have no idea who the true Christ is nor the true Gospel.
I am afraid, however, that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may be led astray from your simple and pure devotion to Christ. – 2 Corinthians 11:3
Christ is not going to save spiritual adulterers and adulteresses who walk in and sell the religious narrative under the control of Satan.
And to present her to Himself as a glorious ekklesia, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blameless. – Ephesians 5:27
The true children of God must be of total separation from the mainstream church system because something that is built upon a satanic foundation is unredeemable. The foundation of the Gospel is not built upon the notions of ecclesiastical men, but upon the rock of Christ.We are living in the time where nearly the elect would be deceived. It imperative that we seek only the way of Christ. There is no other way in hearing God, but through His Son. Many are not ready to leave all and lose all to follow Christ, but this is what it takes to enter into the Kingdom of God. There are no compromises to the true faith. Churches are storehouses for tares full of victims and casualties of the great falling away. The only way to be released from the bondage of spiritual Babylon is the thirst for truth.
Are you willing to abandon Satan’s greatest deception?
- The Self-Improvement Doctrine in the Church System
Within the man-made church system, the emphasis is on your own self- improvement instead of the direct need for repentance. This shiny religious lacquer is poured on the masses.
- The Deception of Self-Righteousness
If you recieve praise on earth, then you will have your reward here on earth, missing the mark and receiving no eternal reward. Proclaiming personal piety is not a Kingdom principle.
- The Gospel Cannot be Merchandised
The sad fact is that most Christians are religious retail customers of a ministry brand name that sells an adulterated Gospel. The moment the Gospel becomes a product for sale, it becomes mammon.
