The Harlot Church System is the Counterfeit of the Way of Christ
There is a place of bondage where men claim to follow Christ and claim his authority, but only give lip service to him. These men give themselves special religious titles so that the people will subject themselves to their rule. They are not to be questioned as they claim their authority comes directly from God. Disobedience to their ways equates to rebellion against God.
This place of bondage is the harlot church system that is a counterfeit entity of the way of Christ and adhering to Kingdom principles. This system is called, 'church.' Although the word 'church' is found within the pages of Scripture, it was deceptively put there by the King James’ translators to point to an man-driven institution rather than Christ.
Christ did not say he was going to build his church (Matthew 16:18), but he stated he would build his ekklesia. Both the entity of church and the ekklesia are completely different in nature.
The Church Goer
Church is a religious institution filled with reprobates and hypocrites. The ekklesia, however are comprised exclusively of God’s called out ones.
Institutional churches are filled with men who love to wield their authority over others. This is religious bondage and all you have to do is walk in through the doors of the harlot church system to see the manifestation.
A true believer is set free in Christ from sin, death and the bondage of religious men. They are called out of the religious man-made systems and traditions of the world being loyal to the way of Christ and the principles of the Kingdom of God.
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. – Isaiah 8:20
The delusional religious indoctrinated church goer will always try to coerce and persuade the ekklesia to partake of the harlot church system. Unfortunately, they have no clue that these ideas are not a requirement of the ekklesia, nor are there any teachings found in Scripture that supports their presumptions. They have been taught by their Pastor to believe that it is there duty before God to partake of man-driven services run by professional hirelings who always pander you for the monetary. The question needs to be asked,
Where are the declared sanctioned meetings to attend denominational institutional church buildings found in the New Testament?
Indoctrinated church minds are entrenched with delusions that the templates of the institutional church system are the way of Christ and the apostles. They do not understand that 'church' is a counterfeit word and a counterfeit system that has no resemblance to the ekklesia who abide in Kingdom principles.
The clergy within the harlot church system love to fix meetings on certain days and bind people to them. If they do not attend, they want to give you a guilty conscience.
'Hey Joe, we haven't see you in church in a while.'
The religious hirelings deem it a sin to not attend denominational church meetings that are nowhere to be found in Scripture. The New Testament ekklesia never met in named buildings called 'church.' There are no buildings found in the New Testament that had self-appointed professional hirelings running within the framework of a corporate denominational institution.
The nature of those among the ekklesia are engaged in the instructions of Christ and the apostles without the mandatory stated duty of gathering for religious activities and traditions under hierarchical framework.
The indoctrinated are under the false presumption that this following verse applies to all those who do not conform to the institutionalized church and their denominational templates.
Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. - Hebrews 10:25
It should be made clear that this verse has absolutely nothing to do with organized religion. In Christ's day, organized religion was headed by the Pharisees, but Christ clearly rebuked their traditions. The harlot church is no different today as most people desire to worship in temples built with man’s hands that were done away with long ago. Christ did not come to set up man-driven church institutions, but instructed his ekklesia to reject man's traditions for Kingdom principles.
Church:The Gates of Hades have Prevailed
Many fail to grasp the enormity of Satan’s deception of what is called 'Christianity.' There are millions who sincerely believe they are following Christ, but they follow a faux Christ and a Gospel of their own making. Just like counterfeit money, many assume that it is the real thing.
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 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 4:3-4
Those in the counterfeit religious system called 'church' loves quoting Scripture. Even Satan is not against this approach as he quoted verses to coerce Christ.
Religious charismatic church leaders are possessed by an 'angel of light' seducing the masses into following their brand name. Christ condemned the religious leaders of his day and will also condemn and bring destruction to those who take part in the same religious hypocrisy today. The ecclesiastical hirelings in the harlot church system have a pretence of being godly, but have the character of their father, Satan.
The indoctrinated minions who support Satan’s religious ministers may look and sound like genuine followers of Christ because they use religious terms, but their jargon means something completely different.
If we claim to be a follower of Christ, then we must understand that it is up to each believer to study Scripture for themselves and allow the Holy Spirit to guide them in the truth.
The harlot church system is idolatrous and in no way resembles the early ekklesia in the New Testament because they are in defiance to Kingdom principles for the syncretism of pagan practices and man-made traditions.
Christ said the gates of Hades would not prevail against the ekklesia; therefore, we can conclude that the assimilation of reprobate minds and their traditions in a system called 'church' has nothing to do with the genuine Gospel at all.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, a small rock and upon the large rock I will build my congregation, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against her. - Matthew 16:18
The modern church system today has its roots in the system of this fallen world. What is called 'Christianity' is a system that cuts the masses from the headship of Christ and the one true God into a double-minded religious system thats spreads the leaven of every wind of doctrine. It is antichrist.
For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. – James 1:7-8
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. – James 4:7-8
Most Biblical historians concur that the way of Christ and the apostles is something completely different than the entity called 'church' today.
“Christianity did not destroy paganism; it adopted it. The Greek mind, dying, came to a transmigrated life in theology and liturgy of the Church” (The Story of Civilization, Vol. 5, Durant, pp. 595).
“Many Christians did not make a clear distinction between this sun-cult and their own. They referred to Christ ‘driving his chariot across the sky,’ they held their services on Sunday, knelt towards the East and had their nativity-feast on 25 December, the birthday of the sun at the winter solstice.” (A History of Christianity, pp. 67).
The harlot church system is saturated in religious counterfeit concepts. This double-minded system breeds confused professors of Christ in the bondage of spiritual adultery.
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain – Jeremiah 10:2-3
Unfortunately, there are many who choose not to study Scripture for themselves, but blindly believe what they are told from the pulpit. They have failed to prove all things; therefore, they are easily deceived.
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. – Matthew 7:13-14
Christianity worships and entity called 'church' that is driven by pagan concepts and traditions of man. It is a revival of ancient Babylon that is continuing to ramp up in these last days. Many are blinded into believing that it is the work of the Holy Spirit when it is an abomination in the sight of God.
What is called 'church' is a front that appears to have genuine believers, but their sins are masqueraded in their Babylonian system that their forms of worship are a means to obtain God. Those who are influenced by the 'Great Whore' are double-minded and confused as they put their trust in men and their religious kingdoms instead of Christ.
So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. - Matthew 23:28
Are you fooling yourself and others?
Have you been duped?
It's time to repent and follow the way of Christ before it is too late.
Are you part of the imitation called 'church,' or the called out ones of Christ.
- Church is Not What You Think It is
Those who have been exposed to “Churchianity” have been indoctrinated into believing that being a follower of Jesus Christ equates to becoming a member of a church denomination.
- The Kingdom of God vs.The Kingdoms of Men
There is a striking dissimilarity between those who are citizens of the Kingdom of God and those who are members within the kingdoms of men.
