this is a test

“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.” Revelation 18:20

What if all this history is just a test so God can see and determine(ie, “judge”) which of “God’s people”, those called to be His ambassadors and witnesses, (supposedly meaning professing Christians
and supposedly those of the Jewish faith, according to so-called Judeo-Christian beliefs, and also JihadistIslam, if viewed or understood as a dialectical subset, branch or useful servant of anti-Christ, Roman, Church+State Dominionist Christianity)..
either live it out as oppressive, manipulative, warring, murdering, enslaving, economic-benefitting,
riches thieving, politically conquering, abusive, cruel, sorcery practicing, willing- to- kill-the masses- for- political- power- and-religious-gain- Dominionists…

OR

if they live it out as little children, innocently living and/or lovingly doing much practical and spiritual good to others, thus doing the will of God.

To the hurting and confused Mars Hill outcast

I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;” Rev.18:4

For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick….Ezekiel 34

You have left Mars Hill Church. The stories you could tell, of what you have been through, what you have seen! You have been spiritually abused, used and cast out. You have experienced abuse, shame, bondage and lies. You have seen terrible things happen to your friends. You left. You are confused. You hurt. You are shaken. You have PTSD. Now what?

Some will try the kind of Church the most “opposite” of the Megachurch Evangelicalism. They will go reactionary, traditional, liturgical. They’ll go Episcopalian or Anglican or Lutheran. Some will head straight to the bosom of Mother Roman Catholic Church. Some will abandon their faith altogether.

But not you. Jesus is calling you out of this whole abomination. He is calling you out of the man-created and controlled substitute for Himself. He is calling you to flee to the mountains and not go back even to get your coat. He is calling you to follow Him to be with Him, outside the camp. He is calling you to come away with Him, away from spiritual predators. He is calling you to come back to your first Love. Back to the time when you first met Him. Back to the two-way covenant relationship that is based on trust, love, friendship and mutual commitment. He is calling you to the wilderness, where He will feed you and care for you,  where He will teach you Himself. Where He will lead you Himself. Where He will guide you as the faithful, loving and trustworthy Shepherd that He is. Where He will bind up your wounds and care for you.

The apostate Church System thinks it is the way to God  , but it is not. Jesus is The Way. If you hear His voice calling you out of Babylon, answer Him,  go to Him. He is leading you out to the only spiritually safe place there is — Himself.

any other gospel

If anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” Gal. 1:9

I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preach is not made up by man or based on human thought. I did not receive my message from men. It was not taught to me by a person. I received it by a revelation of Jesus Christ.

I received the gospel from our Lord Jesus Christ, as I was reading the gospels in the Bible, by myself, with God. I asked Him to show me the way, to teach me to the truth, and to reveal Himself to me. As I read His recorded words,  Jesus spoke to me,(and I heard Him) by the Spirit.

What was the gospel I received?

1. “It’s all about Me. I am the Way.”  (It’s all about Him. This is the truth He wanted me to know and believe.)
2. “Follow Me.” (This is what He wanted me to do.)
3. “You are now Mine. You belong to Me.” (He placed me into His kingdom. He let me know I know that now I belonged to HIM. He let me know I have been removed from the “of this world” kingdom,  to His kingdom, which is not of this world).
4. Later as I began walking with Him…. He taught me things such as, “Repent” and “You will be My witness”.

But after this, during my 24 year membership inside Evangelical Christianity, I heard and was taught many many “other gospels”.  For example:
1. It’s all about Church.
2. Follow men, organizations, Theologians, Theology Systems, man-made dogmas, Movements, Political Leaders, Cultural Leaders, Ministry Leaders and Strategic Christian Organizational Methodologies.
3. You now belong to the top-down organized, State-incorporated, leadership networked, systems theory, total-quality-managed, rule based, authoritarian, religious, political, patriotic, money-changing, flesh-driven, success-seeking, reputation-preserving, world-approved, idolatrous, compromising, man-pleasing, man-following,  Evangelical sub-culture.
4. Later after I was deeply entrenched in Evangelicaldom, I was taught, “Come, let’s change the world” and “Take America back for God” and “Support the State of Israel”, and “When billions of people around the world say ‘yes’ to God, there will be peace! We will solve all the world’s global problems!”

Oh beloved, remember that gospel that you received by a revelation of Jesus Christ. Remain with that gospel that you first received from Him.

Dear Babylon

Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. Rev.18

I can no longer “buy” into all the fancy glittery earthly “stuff” (garbage) that you, Babylon that great and mighty city, “sell”..Rev18:10-13… I just ain’t buying it anymore…..(alas for you)……..and you, Babylon, can no longer make me your commodity to do with me what you will…..for you, religious Babylon, no longer own my body or my soul…Babylon, so fine and rich, so proud, so admired and praised and lusted after, with self-exalting, self-important purple and scarlet, with fake gold and fake precious stones and fake pearls…goodbye…I have left you to your judgment, and shall rejoice.

Mourning the abomination

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matt.5:4

Jesus promises comfort to those who mourn. “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”

I visited my friend Diane and her family last weekend. We had a wonderful visit filled with sharing, caring, loving, cooking, eating, helping, laughing, reading the scriptures aloud, teaching one another, encouraging one another. It was a happy 6 hours of fellowship.

She shared a story with me that illustrated to me how she had recently experienced grieving with mourning. Mourning over what? Over the state of Babylonian Churchianity: the apostacy, the abomination, the confusing, distressing “fully leavened” mess.

We met at our last Church, back in 2005. They were only there a year or so. Her family left several years before we did. They left because of Church teachings and practices(traditions) that they did not believe were right.

Since they left, they did some serious Church shopping all over the Peninsula and found nothing that seemed safe or real or true. They have been staying at home ever since, loving God as a family, practicing loving hospitality and having fellowship with Christian friends in an informal way at their home and in the homes of friends. Between her godly husband who has a gift for teaching, and the Holy Spirit who comforts, leads, and teaches all things, they are thriving spiritually as a family. Though their material circumstances are challenging, their little home just bursts with the love and joy of the Lord.

So we were talking during our visit, and she shared with me how they were out in the neighborhood with the kids, and they bumped into a neighbor who is a professing Christian. Their conversation turned to the topic of “Church”. He began promoting and recommending his Church to them. They said thanks but they were not interested. They were happy “as-is”. He gave them a brochure booklet from the Church about “making a commitment” (to the Church) to look over for their consideration.

Diane told me that they brought the booklet home and she and her husband looked it over. She was so disturbed that looking at it made her feel physically sick.

What was in the booklet? The first thing they saw was new age symbols and charts that were designed to convey the values, “vision”, purpose, and organization of the Church, as well as the “spiritual life” and “spiritual practices” of a member. These looked like business model charts and new age psychology charts. Second, they saw an illustration called, “Denominational Tree” (oh the irony!) with the caption, “One Body, Many Members”. The tree starts with Judaism (!!) and goes up to Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Reformed, Lutheran, Mainlines, AOG,……..

…Baptist, (and many others) and….. Unitarian and Universalist! The brochure describes mandatory “Tithing” for members and has an organizational flow chart of the paid staff which illustrates a top-down hierarchy starting at the top with the lone, “Lead Pastor”, and going down to the “lower” staff workers at the bottom. The Church also practices Communitarianism (public- private partnerships/Agenda21/UN Charter Church), life-stage small groups, spiritual formation, Monvee, contemplative mystic experience practices, meditation, marketing, psychology (“coaching?”)….and “unity within diversity” whatever that means?

So my dear sweet friend Diane who just loves Jesus, (and not the world) was sick reading this. Seeing this Church booklet made her ill. She was sighing and groaning. She was in mourning. After all, the abomination has truly made desolation. Some see it. Many do not.

Over these last 3 years, God has brought into my life, many, many who mourn over these things: “Laodicea Church” and “Circus Church” and “Man Made Man Controlled Busine$$ Church” and “Love of the World System Church” and “Babylon (confusion) Church” and “Idol Worship Church” and “One World Order/ New Age Church”. They mourn over this abomination. They mourn because of un-Christian things done to them personally, in Babylon Church. I’ve talked to brothers and sisters who have experienced horrific abuse, cruelty, bondage, oppression, deception, and confusion in Babylon Church. I have been observing the apostacy for 20 years and writing about it for about seven. I have been out of the Harlot Church for almost three. I have many friends who have gone through this process of mourning. I could tell of 10 good friends I know personally who have experienced and mourned the abomination. Some were kicked out of Church. Some decided to leave. All the others were literally called out of the System, by God. (I know of hundreds of others who have also come out the System in order to follow Jesus.) They were hurting, sad and some were confused. They needed comfort. These who mourn need love and someone who understands. They need to know they are not alone in their seeing the abomination, that they are not alone in their mourning. Jesus mourns with them! They are in very good company.

Yes Jesus indeed provides this promised comfort to those who mourn. He understands this more than anyone. He mourned when He was here in the flesh, over the apostacy and idolatry. Loudly. Further back in time, in the old days of the prophets, He mourned the apostacy and idolatry. Loudly. His prophets have always seen the abomination, and have mourned it. Loudly.

He knows that for us, in our time, there are “even greater abominations” that we will see (from Ez.8). He knows we are experiencing this now. But our Lord Jesus comforts us Himself. His people are with Him where He is. They follow their Shepherd wherever He goes. He cares for them and feeds them and provides for them, and keeps them spiritually safe. He understands the sorrow, pain and distress. He understands their sighing and groaning. He understands their grief. He is spiritually protecting them from what is happening and what is coming. He is comforting His people who mourn.

The LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst.” Ez.9:4

Government to Enlist Churches via “Partnership”

What does the Government (and Rick Warren and the UN) have planned for the Institutional Church? Social and economic Communitarianism through Church-State partnerships. According to the research I have previously done on “Faith Based Initiatives”, participating churches are NOT allowed to preach Jesus or in any way evangelize, when “in partnership” with the Government and receiving government money for carrying out government programs and goals.

We, the called out ones, are married to Christ, not to the antichrist Beast Government which has an agenda that is of the world system and of the kingdom of darkness. We are part of the Kingdom NOT of this world. We heed the will of the Lord Jesus Christ, not the earthly “powers that be” that are against Christ and His Gospel. We cannot have two Masters; Jesus and the Government. We must choose Whom we will serve. God or mammon. Christ or Belial.
