The Ministry Loyalty Contract and the seduction of evil

But I fear that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your minds may be seduced from a complete and pure devotion to Christ. 2 Cor:11:3

But I fear that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your minds may be seduced from a complete and pure devotion to the Christian Ministry Organization, Policies, Contractual Requirements and Leadership.

But I fear that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your minds may be seduced from a complete and pure devotion to The Church Membership Contract and The Pastor.

Wait, what? That’s not what the verse says.

The serpent deceived by means of the lie. The lie was the foundation of evil. The lie is evil because it seduces God’s people away from pure devotion to Christ.

Many Churches require members to sign a loyalty contract. Some of these are online; go see for yourselves. One extremely successful International Christian, Neo-Evangelical/ecumenical ministry requires their staff members to agree to or promise to submit to certain behavior, for example, not ever being critical of the ministry or the leadership.

A quote from one ministry policy handbooks states, “A critical attitude of fellow staff, of the — ministry or of other individuals or groups shall be considered as evidence of disloyalty to Christ, and shall be accepted as an act of resignation.”

(The previous phrase was bolded by myself.)

So basically, if you are a member of this Church or Christian Organization, you better not question it! You better not disobey it! You better not critique it! You better not examine it! You better not discern it! You better not think critically! You better not ponder your unquestioned loyalty to it! Because if you do, this proves your disloyalty to Christ!

If you have to agree to requirements such as these, or sign any Church loyalty contract or any Christian ministry loyalty contract, in which you covenant your allegiance and obedience and submission to the organization, and to the Leaders,

you simply are not free in Christ.

If you have to agree to or sign a contract in which you covenant yourself to not criticize, or question or challenge the group, then you are not free in Christ! You are bound.

Dear ones, Be free! This is why Christ set us free! For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1.

Loyalty and devotion to Church Inc., or Ministry or Christian Organization or Leaders is NOT equal to loyalty to Christ.

If you are told that they are equal, you are being LIED TO. You are being asked to submit to evil, for evil is always founded on a lie. The mind must be seduced for one to agree to and submit to this lie. The seduced mind has therefore been deceived into believing and accepting a lie. The lie is then put into practice (translated into actions or obedience to the lie), and the mind is bound to evil, no longer free in Christ.

Remember: lies=evil.

Submit not to evil; rather submit to Christ. Be devoted not to evil, be devoted to Christ. Be loyal not to evil, be loyal to Christ.

we hear and heed our King

“You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John 18:37

As we live in the realm of our King Jesus, we hear Him and obey Him.

We do not break civil laws, (unless we must in order to be faithful to Christ) or trust civil documents or civil leaders to be our salvation or means of life. We do not pledge oaths of allegiance to the State or Church, for we have made our covenant of allegiance to Christ.  We do not kill supposed enemies of God (whether evil religious or civic leaders, supposed heathens or Christians who are deemed “heretics” by theologians). We do not kill or destroy to solve political disagreements, we do not riot, protest, march for our so-called rights, seek revenge, rebel against the government, or foment violent revolutions.

We live by the instructions and Spirit of Christ. Our Kingdom is not of this worldly realm. We live by the Way of our Kingdom. We are strangers and pilgrims while here in this world. We offer the peace of God to both the oppressors and the oppressed. We are peacemakers with the peace of God. We hear and heed our King.

Why I will not “ice bucket” myself

Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb…Rev.22

1. I choose to follow Jesus: I am not a follower of men, pop culture, trends, fads or movements. I do not accept challenges given by those in allegiance to the kingdoms of this world.

2. I choose union with Jesus: I will not participate in the world’s unifying, social-bonding, group-hypnosis, peer-pressure, conformity-participation, mass rituals.

3. I choose obedience to the commands of Jesus: I will not obey the commands of the kings of the earth (the principalities, the powers the rulers, the spiritual forces of wickedness in high places).

4. I choose to love the Truth: The behavioral reasoning for this act, as well as the spiritual symbolism, implications and manifestations involved with this social ritual are deceptive and based on lies.

5. I choose not to participate in pagan ritual: Immersing self or bathing self with icy cold freezing water is an Eastern Orthodox pagan ritual for “cleansing self of sins”. It also looks like some kind of new age, “Age of Aquarius”, water-pouring ‘baptism’ ritual with possible “waters breaking /birth” or “shock” esoteric meaning that is NOT of Jesus Christ. Also I choose not to mimic torture: Ice water is used in occult trauma based mind control ritual abuse programming, which hurts people’s minds, bodies and souls.

6. I choose not to participate in occult ritual:  the Hexagram is a symbol of fire and water combining for satanic purposes. The triangle pointing up is fire (fire, fires, firing bullets, firing tear gas, Ferguson, MO) and the triangle pointing down is water (Ice bucket challenge). Both triangles combine in these simultaneous events.

7. I choose not to participate in the bold mocking of the throne of God and of the Lamb, but instead to love, reverence and honor my Lord and My God, my Savior and King. Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb..Rev.22

One master

Love the Lord your God with all your heart… and love your neighbor as yourself.  Luke 10:27

If The State or The Church tell me or suggest that I must look to them for salvation, I will disobey The State and The Church.

If The State or The Church tell me or suggest that I must be enemies with Iran or Muslims or anyone else, I will disobey The State and The Church.

 

Dear new believer,

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Gal.2:20 nas

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Gal.2:20 kjb

New believer, if I met you on the street and I only had 10 minutes to give you guidance before we had to part, what would I tell you? What can I leave you with today? I’d need all day to share all I would like to say to you. But here are a few quick things to begin with:

1. Follow Jesus, not the Christian Leaders. Follow Jesus, not the organized institutional “Church”. Listen to Jesus, not the Institutional Church men. Jesus will tell you the truth; the popular Christian leaders lie about many things. They lead astray. Their teachings and practices are not faithful to Christ, although they appear so successful and impressive. Many in Christianity will invite you to participate in practicing manmade “religion and traditions”. But He has invited you to relationship with Himself. And with the others that He has called out. Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him. Where does Jesus lead us to as we follow? His narrow path leads to denying our self;  it leads to His Life. A sublime journey awaits you.

2. Understand your salvation is in Christ Jesus. It is not in the Church System. Jesus Christ is your mediator (your way to God), not The Church. HE is your salvation, not organized, man-led religious systems of Christianity.

3. The hard truth is, the Church System is completely corrupt. There is no cure, it can’t be fixed. There are many false teachings, many which go directly against what Jesus Christ has said in the scriptures to the disciples. Realize you ARE the ‘church’, that is, you are the called out people of God — you who are now in Christ’s flock, redeemed by Him. It’s not about “going” to a physical place to meet with God. Christ is in you wherever you are, it is about “being”– His life is now being lived through you, 24/7. He will lead you to gather with other brothers and sisters in different places. You are not alone, you are part of His called out people, His kingdom. You are part of the ONE flock that He has, the other believers are all over the world. You will find His people in various places and you will find that He has special work for everyone to do, to serve one another in love. In other words we all have different functions. He guides everyone by His Spirit as to what He wants them to do to serve and help the others. Sometimes you will have fellowship (togetherness,communication, sharing life) with others. Sometimes you will feel lonely. But He Himself will always provide for your spiritual needs.

4. Focus on your relationship with our Lord Jesus. Develop and grow a relationship with the living Christ,  your Savior and Lord. He has planned, a love relationship. Spend time with Him, talk to Him and listen. He will speak to you also by the Spirit. Listen to Him. Do what He says.

5. Watch out for cults. Even outside the corrupt Church System there are many cults. Pray for discernment, that you will be able to spiritually see and know the truth about what someone does or says or promotes. One cult says that we must become devoted to the Old Testament Law and rituals and we must call God by Hebrew names, or “sacred names”, observing special days, rituals and such. This is not true. He is your Father, you can call Him your Father. You can call Him Jesus. He leads you by His Spirit, you need not a list of religious rules and rituals. He will lead you from within you by His Spirit and power. Let no one put you under bondage to religion. Another cult is what is called “shepherding”, this is when the leaders tell you they require a leader (shepherd or “father”) over you to rule your life, to whom you are accountable in everything. This is a multi-level hierarchy system of external control. They will control your life! With this, you must submit to and obey your leader over you. It’s all about submitting to the leader. Again, this system is a cult; you need no external control system of men over you, Christ Jesus is your Shepherd and head, your shepherd, priest and leader. We do not we submit our will to a man. These authoritarian systems and men seek to make themselves substitutes for Jesus Christ. Accept no substitute for Christ. Jesus Christ alone shall rule in your heart and guide you by His Spirit.

6. Ask Him to teach you; He will teach you Himself. If  you love the truth, He will show you the truth. Truth is revealed to you by the Holy Spirit of God.

7. What He wants you to do will be revealed to you by Him. He will let you know. He will teach you and show you. He will make you into what He wants you to be. Remember it is about “being” in Him, and living out your identity in Him. One thing we all are is, we are His witnesses. You are a witness of Jesus Christ. You are His witness by His power, to do and speak what He has planned for you to do and speak. Your witness, by the power of His Spirit, will give glory to Jesus Christ. Your witness  (your words, actions, your witness, your living a holy life devoted to Him) will earn you scorn, mocking, ridicule, abuse, hate and rejection by the world. It will also bring you great joy and blessing in Him.

8. Know that you are now a part of His Kingdom. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” You are no longer a part of the kingdoms of this world, you are in the Kingdom of God. Though you physically reside on the earth, spiritually you are no longer a dweller of the earth. Spiritually you have been transferred to the Kingdom of God through repentance and faith, through the blood of Christ, through the power of God, and you are no longer a member of the kingdoms of this world. The kingdom of God is within you; Christ is within you. Jesus Christ is our kingdom and He is our King. Understanding your citizenship in the kingdom of God is so important; it helps you understand that your loyalty and allegiance lies with Christ. You belong to God!  It helps you understand that your identity is in Him. You are a child of God! Having firm conviction of this will help you make many decisions as you are faced with choices in this world. You have been bought with a price, the price of the precious blood of Christ. You are now a member of His kingdom. Jesus is now your King!

There is so much more I hope to share with you, next time we meet.

Owned

“Thou ……..hast redeemed us to God by thy blood” Rev.5:9

…the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. Acts20:28

Owned.

You are not owned by the government. Or the UN. Or the various leaders and rulers of the NWO. You are not owned by The Church. You are not owned by the pope or any pastor. You are not owned by a religion. You are not owned by a political nation. You are not owned by The State. You are not owned by the money and whoever creates, owns and ‘lends’ the money. You are not owned by the corporations.  You are not owned by kings or any earthly leaders.

You are owned by God in Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord. You have been bought with a price: the precious blood of Christ.
You belong to Him.

No one else has ultimate jurisdiction or authority over you spiritually. No one else can lay claim to your soul (your mind, your will and your heart, which includes thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and allegiance.) You have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God’s beloved Son. This world system can no longer claim you. They no longer own you. They have no authority over you in all spiritual matters of ownership, identity, allegiance and worship.

Render unto Caesar!

Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and to God, the things which are God’s. ~ from Luke20, Mark12,Matt.22

(Give to the government the things which are the government’s, and to God, the things which are God’s.)

In Church this last Sunday, did the pastor preach against the abortion provisions of Obamacare? Did he preach against the Federal government’s war and killing in the middle east countries? Did he refrain from honoring and praising Church members who are military? Did he walk over to the US Flag which stands tall near the pulpit and take it down and throw it on the ground? Did he preach against drone strikes on innocent children in foreign countries? Did he preach about how the US Gov. is supporting and financing groups that kill Christians in the middle east? Did he preach against the brainwashing currently being promoted which encourages Christians to fear and support military war against Muslims instead of loving them like Jesus loves? Did he preach against this Obamacare mandated healthcare info storage/ RFID/ tracking computer chip wearable or insertable “device”?

Did he preach that our allegiance and obedience is to our Lord Jesus Christ alone and not to earthly kingdoms, nations and governments? Did he teach that we must always obey God over man, even if that “man” is the government? Was he clear to preach that our allegiance is to the kingdom of God which is not of this world? Did he mention that loyalty to Jesus’ kingdom will create serious conflict with family, society, nation and government? No? Why?

Because if his Church is registered with the government as an incorporated business “body” or business, he is obligated by law to not speak against any US Government policy or government propaganda, but to demonstrate support, compliance and obedience to the US Federal Government.

The physical insertable “computer chip” is not the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast is spiritual: the heart/mind love for self and this world, and the deeds that follow.

The mark is about allegiance, loyalty, love and worship– it is about to whom we acknowledge as our God, our trust, loyalty, love, allegiance and owner.

Through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and His covenant with us, we belong to God. Not the government. That is why we are non-compliant with this chip thing. Not because it is the mark of the beast, but because we love Jesus Christ our Beloved Savior and want to show Him our love by demonstrating we know who owns us. We are already marked (or sealed) by HIM. We belong to Him.

Incorporated Churches belong to Caesar. So let the government have the Churches then! Let Caesar then be given what belongs to Caesar (the Incorporated Churches). But our bodies, minds, love, worship, actions, obedience, loyalty and allegiance belong to God, let us give ourselves wholly to Him.

there is ANOTHER KING

Guest Post:

Announcing Another King

by Bill Johnson of Canada

“and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.” Acts17:7

Acts 17:6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

Paul and Silas, in “turning the world upside down”, by going forth with the gospel were a working power of the Spirit prophesied  in Isaiah 29-16. They were known for being diametrically opposed to  the decrees of the State. . They were “turning the world (system) upside down.” A reflection upon what Jesus told the women at the well in John ch. 4; Man will no longer worship God in temples of organized religion, which lifts up the works of mans hands, but rather God is a Spirit and the true worshiper must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. What was their inflaming message that turned the world upside down? Were they telling the congregations to seek out  a Pastor or Farther and support him; go to church every sabbath day; go along to get along with the world and their system by conforming to it? Could this have been the message that set the city fathers against them in verse 7? I think not! Were they asking people to send their tithes to them so they could build a nice church or develop a Christian youth center to keep the teens off the streets? I think not? What could it have been that made the works of Paul and Silas so contrary by “turning the world system upside down”? The answer is found in verse 7:

“Whom Jason hath received (into his house): and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.”
 
Paul and Silas were announcing ANOTHER KING!  One who’s kingdom IS NOT OF THIS WORLD… They were forming congregational bodies that could meet daily anywhere at any time in the name of the LORD. Assemblies that no longer looked to Caesar as their king.

Contrary to revised history and the false pundits of today, Paul and Silas weren’t the “church builders they claimed them to be. They weren’t proselytizing people into a 2 fold child of hell from one church or synagogue to another.  They were establishing freedom in the Spirit to serve their King Jesus. They weren’t building and attending churches! Please understand the foundational ground work for these assemblies in the New Testament bears no resemblance to what we know today as “church”. In fact they were 24/7  sabbath gatherings of God’s people, who were meant to live together by the ecclesia pattern in communities, holding all things common, under the government of God, through His anointed spiritual elders of godly obedience. This is the Acts 2 model of assembly after the Spirit, holding fast the doctrine of Christ, and not after the arm of the flesh holding fast the traditions of men “ie” “the Nicolaitanes”..The early church body were kingdom builders in the Spirit! The members themselves were the church, not the buildings, institutions, and traditions of men and its so-called Christianity. The true Christian ecclesia’s we read about in the New Testament were independent bodies of Christians, when two or more are gathered in His name. Independent from worldly kings and governors, being led by the Spirit of grace, thus being ruled by the authoritative  government of Christ unto obedience to Him, a living movement, modeled after the Sermon on the Mount.. These lowly men were walking in the light of the gospel, and  reigning over the darkness of this world, treading upon serpents and scorpions, by dethroning rulers in the minds of the people, removing the deception,  and alienating them from the mental hold Caesar had upon them through heathenistic central government. They were teaching the principles of Christian government under Christ, the King of a kingdom that is not of this world, by preaching the new way of the gospel> love thy neighbour, do good to those who despise you, be not quick to anger, pray for your enemies, go yet another mile, have no malice, take no oaths, lay down your sword, for those who live by the sword  will perish by the sword, worship the one true God in the name of Christ, and thou will receive treasures exceedingly in the kingdom above..  They were putting forth the call of God to whomever would hear and obey HIS commandments, and of those whose hearts responded to the call became citizens of Christ’s kingdom and joined themselves to the ecclesia’s, or community of believers who walk by faith and not by sight. On the contrary, organized state religion, walks by sight, seeking signs and wonders through the works of man’s hands, a directive of having no faith, “ie” the Cain model of worship. The holy scriptures do not teach us that churches, their masonic buildings, their demonization’s;  and the ways of the Nicolaitanes,  would eventually take the place of His assembling of the saints gathered in His name. Therefore,  Paul and Silas were a threat to the existing establishment  8 And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.

do not join the false worship

“Though you, Israel, are a prostitute, may Judah avoid such guilt. Do not join the false worship at Gilgal or Beth-aven, even though they take oaths there in the LORD’s name.” Hosea4:15nlt

“Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.” Hosea4:15kjb

Not participating in the dialectic of “Patriotic Christians vs Million Muslims”.

Not participating in the divided loyalty, idolatrous, carnal, fake political American Christianity of “God N Country!”.

Not listening or paying any attention to the hate & fear-based propaganda rhetoric that we should go against the Muslims.

Not buying into the synthesis lie either.
