Dear powers that be, leave Yemen alone. I know you have your big plans and all, but, see,I had tea and cookies with these beautiful (completely veiled) Yemeni women, I played with their sweet little children, and I have empathy and affection for them. I also observed the kind behavior of their husbands, sitting at a distance from us. And while you are at it, also leave Liberia, Albania, Russia, Ukraine, all of Eastern Europe, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Palestine and Syria alone too. “Kill them all”, women and babies, you say, as this is your will. And like psychopaths you don’t care. You have no empathy. But Jesus has empathy and He is not defeated. He does the will of His Father. He is the savior of all these very precious little sheep and it is His will that He lose none of the sheep given to Him, but raise them up on the last day.
Christians will be angry with you for choosing not to join in the political fight for Christendom, or Church-State Christian Reconstructionism, “this world” Theocracy and Dominionism.
My kingdom is not of this world.
“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…
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.
“This is my blood of the new covenant” Matt.26
I don’t want to give any attention to the anti-Christ material posted by Mr. Shoebat. He is teaching the saints things against the heart , the Kingdom and Spirit of Jesus, as he praises and promotes “Christians” who respond to violent Muslims in other lands by going on their own warring rampages and killing them. Shoebat presents this so called Christian violence against Jihadists, as righteous and praiseworthy. A Facebook friend posted, regarding killing ‘the enemy’, “I would too. You all forget that Jael was a woman warrior!!”
I say to them, “You all forget we are in the new covenant!” All this “war and killing”, “kill the muslims” ideology is straight from the pagan Roman Empire (State) and pagan Roman Christianity (Church). Thus rules the mindset of Crusading, Colonizing, Conquest, Theocracy, Dominionism, takeover, payback, revenge and physical self preservation, to “win” in this world. Interestingly, this Christianity philosophy is the very same philosophy of the Jihadist.
Shoebat’s teachings go directly against the humble kingdom teachings of our Lord Jesus. The multitudes of our Lord’s “little ones” are taught by the Christian Leaders to disobey Christ Jesus. Shoebat and similar Christian Leaders mislead the sheep. The sheep are then spiritually trampled and crushed by the war chariots and tanks of ChurchandState-ianity’s own war machine. Dominionism apparently gets its Christian doctrine from the OT, literally interpreted, twisted, misunderstood and misapplied! The beautiful new covenant kingdom teachings of Jesus Christ are simply ignored.
Shoebat reps the pope, not the heart of Jesus Christ. And of course many Churches obediently go along with the war and killing mindset–they do not want to go against what the government decrees in it’s Public Policy. They do not want to reject what is taught in Dispensationalist, Zionist, Statist, Dominionist seminaries.
Did you get the announcement? War is over! It is finished. Enough blood has already been shed. Jesus Christ’s blood is more than enough.
“THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Luke4:19
for fear of the Jews.. John 7:13, John 20:19
the Jews, who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets…. 1Thes2:14-15
Wow, they were very afraid of “the Jews”.
Let’s look at this phrase, “the Jews”, metaphorically as referring to a major demonic spirit that controls antichrist religions, in opposition to God, and NOT “literally” as in an ethnic people group or a culture. Let’s look at how this spiritually designated group spans centuries, many religions and nations, and it’s function of hurting and killing, and keeping people captive.
1. for fear of the Jews= the plotting, envious, murderous Pharisee religious leaders of Jesus’ time who wanted to maintain power and control. They loved death and hated Truth and desired to kill the Truth (ie Jesus and those who followed Him). They kept the people captive in bondage and fear. This is the satanically empowered force that is against Christ Jesus and all the saints.
2.for fear of the Jews= those greedy papal Church leaders of Holy Roman Empire Christendom who wanted Roman Empire power, wealth and dominion. They loved death and hated Truth and desired to kill Truth (ie Christians and anyone else who would not submit to their lies, power, authority and dominion). This is the group who instituted the Inquisitions, planned the killing Crusades of the middle ages and kept spiritual truth from the people, keeping them captive in bondage and fear. This is the same group who planned death for every person killed in the world wars. This group presents itself as Pious and Holy Christianity but is actually in satanic opposition to Christ and to the saints. This force is merely an extension of group 1.
3. for fear of the Jews= those modern religious Islamic Jihad leaders who want power and dominion. They feed lies to the people, making them captive to bondage, deception and fear. They love death and hate Truth and desire to kill everyone who will not submit to Islam, especially Christians. This is the same exact spirit as what exists in group 2. It is the same entity with a different culture, language, and geography. But it is the exact same thing. This force is merely an extension of groups 1 and 2.
All three are the same spirit of death, spanning many centuries and manifesting in three world religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) using them as a front, so to speak. Same spirit of killing, envy, lust for power, cruelty, torture, and spiritual bondage and captivity. It is a religious demonic spirit that hates God and people and loves to kill and destroy. It loves to hurt and lie and deceive and keep people captive.
This spirit keeps the world’s people in fear of being punished if they do not obey. This spirit also makes our brethren worldwide fear for their lives, for belonging to Jesus Christ. This evil spirit wants to kill and make everyone captive and submit to their self-appointed Dominionist power.
We are dealing with religious spiritual forces here. This is what we are dealing with: “we wrestle not against flesh….. but against rulers, powers, forces, principalities… rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph.6:12
“THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.”
Therefore, keep loving God and loving your neighbor. Continue keeping a soft heart of mercy, compassion, empathy and love, as Christ abides in you and you in Him.
Keep praying for the suffering saints who are persecuted. Keep loving and helping them in every practical way, meeting their needs, comforting, caring for, feeding and encouraging them however you are able.
Keep telling the truth of salvation and life in Jesus Christ to the world. Keep declaring and living His kingdom. Keep living the life and faith of Jesus Christ and making disciples. Proclaim release to the captives! And do not be afraid to speak openly of Him.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?” From Matt.5
Papal Crusades and Jihad are the same thing. They are the very same spirit of war and killing Dominionism.
I saw this quote today:
“They are killing our people in the name of Allah and telling people that anyone who kills a Christian will go straight to heaven: that is their message.”
Here is a link where this quote is stated: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/08/isis-persecution-iraqi-christians-genocide-asylum
In both the Crusades and Jihad, the leaders promise their religious adherents who fight and kill, remission of sins and a ticket straight to heaven, as a reward.
Just as Jihadists kill Christians and Jews today, the Crusaders, who identified as Christians and were called “vassals of Christ” by the pope, killed many many Jews, Moslems (then called Turks), pagans AND also Christians who refused and rejected submitting to the Roman Catholic Church. Remember, Islam means “submit”. These popes charged their military army to kill men, women and little children without mercy; the sword-carnage was great and rivers of blood flowed high.
The spirit of war and killing, the spirit of “holy war”, and the lying spirit that says that anyone would be awarded with automatic remission of sins and heaven, (for killing people), is the same evil spirit. This evil spirit speaks though both the leaders of Islam and the leaders of Official (world accepted) Christianity.
Dominionism kills. Dominionism’s motivation is fear. Dominionism promotes a false way to God. Dominionism hates it’s enemies. Dominionism has no love or compassion. Dominionism wants everyone to SUBMIT or die.
Islam and Official Christianity both still say to “kill our enemies”.
Jesus Christ still says to us, to love our enemies. Let us continue to listen to what Christ says to us.

from whence come wars…………………THE FLESH
no war of the carnal flesh is justified……………….
and every war, every war ever fought for whatever cause , it matters not,
was done so from LUST, to obtain something they didn’t have.
TEST THAT………and you will see it is truth.
OUR KINGDOM is NOT OF THIS WORLD…….
but anyone who fights for the worlds kingdom and calls it whatever,
its NOT OF GOD.
and I am not condemning anyone,
way too many falsehoods out there, by way too many men NOT of GOD.
all be blessed. and lift up hands unto OUR LORD,
for his mercies upon us,
and may many more come into the fold of our LORD.
love and pray for your enemies,
BUT HEED NOT an ounce of their false words or ideas.
Just read that bible and follow our LORD. amen.

“And to Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom” Dan.7:14
My dominion mandate to you:
It is not, “take dominion of the 7 mountains of culture”.
it is not, “be a crusader and take over the world in the name of Christ”.
it is not, “go against the heathens with the military if necessary”.
it is not, “take control and domination of others”.
it is not, “Christianize the world system”.
it is not, “convert the nations (collectively in groups or political nations) to Christianity”.
it is not, “rule over the Church and the State with strategy, polity, military and all carnal power”.
it is not, “build the kingdom of God through any means necessary”.
it is not, “make disciples by subjecting them to the Rule and dominion of Christendom”.
It is, “walk with Christ your Lord and your God”.
it is, “follow Jesus your Shepherd “.
it is, “do what He did, and what He said to do, and do whatever He says to you now”.
it is, “yield yourself to Him, that Christ’s life be lived through you, in His power”.
it is, “pick up your cross and follow Him”.
it is, “repent” and “be transformed” and “walk according to the Spirit”.
it is, “listen to HIM, He is speaking to you”.
it is “be filled with the Spirit” and “do what pleases HIM”.
it is, “deny self”.
it is, “submit to one another (in Christ), and humble yourself”.
it is “die to sin and abide in Christ”.
it is, “rule over your flesh with the Spirit and Power of God”.
it is, “know Christ’s dominion is in you, for His kingdom is within you”.
it is, “build the kingdom of God through the preaching of the true gospel” (that Jesus Christ taught and demonstrated).
it is, “make disciples by witnessing/ evangelizing/ preaching the gospel, and then instructing them to follow Jesus, to love and obey Him, and teaching His words and His way”.
it is, “make disciples of CHRIST” (not disciples of Law based-Theonomist-political-cultural-militaristic Institutional Christianity) “teaching them (individuals) to observe whatsoever things HE has commanded you”.
Now go forth in love, His life living through you, and serve Christ to His glory, making disciples.
Hear My voice, I am the True Shepherd of the sheep, the thief comes to kill and destroy, but he comes as an angel of light! from John10 and 2Cor11
I accepted an invitation from my girl friend, to go to a Christian conference at a Church building. I went because I wanted to spend time with her, and hear news of the suffering saints. I was given liberty from the Lord, to go, to hear what was being said these days, to Christian people at Church.
It was the VOM regional conference; the subject was persecuted believers in communist and Muslim countries. There were videos, pictures, testimonies
of these saints, and stories the speakers told, of their lives and suffering. I am always glad to hear of them, it is a sweetness and bittersweetness at the same time, the believers in hostile lands are so dear and sweet, but it is so sad, their suffering. I wanted to participate in remembering them, and learning of their plight.
But there were some things I noticed that grieved me. I really went, with an open heart, assuming the best, hoping and trusting I would not hear anything that would grieve me, but alas, I did. But I’m not surprised (though I’m saddened) because the Church System really is Babylon….. and she cannot be healed. Thus fleeing and forsaking her is the only way……. it’s not safe because the truth is tainted and muddied with bondage or lies (or both!).
The main speaker (from Iran) said all kinds of concerning things, though he is very eager to reach muslims in Iran as a missionary. Now he did report that many Iranians are coming to Christ and are assembling secretly, quietly in homes and such, and are doing a lot of evangelism. But this man defined the sharing the gospel as getting someone to “pray the prayer” for God or Jesus to “come into your heart”. That was concerning.
He basically pushed for political and religious Dominionism in Iran. His words and style reminded me of Campus Crusade for Christ and YWAM, as far as the ministry catchphrases.
He boldly promoted the 7 Mountains Dominionism! That is where the 7 Mountains of society will be ruled by a cultural and political Christianity. He said Iran will become a Christian country! He said 2 kingdoms are clashing and Islam is a spirit. But then he said, “You can’t come against it (the spirit of Islam) with the military, well sometimes you have to use the military.”
With that statement, he went against Jesus’ words and promoted war and killing “if it is necessary”.
Further, he said that we want to evangelize the muslims and convert them for these reasons:
1. because if not they will kill us all
2. because they want to take over the world and make every nation Muslim, (submit to Islam) thus we must stop them by converting more of them to Christianity.
This is NOT to be our motivation. His motivation was unfortunately pure FEAR— fear of being killed, fear of jihad, fear of being forced to submit to Islam, fear of our country being taken over, etc. This is NOT of Christ.
That attitude is the spirit of the Holy Roman Empire of Christendom, which wanted to preserve the culture, earthly kingdoms, lands and power holdings of State-Christianity (Christendom). This is not of the Spirit. This is of earthly Churchianity or what we call Babylon Church.
The motivation he promoted, is the same motivation that sent men to the Crusades to kill and shed oceans of so-called infidel or heretic blood (Christian, Muslim and Jewish blood, and also pagans of other indigenous local religions). This motivation is satanic, it is not of Love, it is not of Faith, it is not of Hope. It is not loving God and loving neighbor. It is pure fear, and determination to hold on to what we “have in this world” (lands, nations, freedoms, rights, our lives, our culture etc). This is not of Jesus Christ who told us to die to self, follow Him and make disciples.
The man did promote evangelism and making disciples, but for the wrong motivation, not out of obedience to Christ, not out of love for God and people, and not out of gratitude to our beloved Christ Jesus for our salvation, not out of compassion for the lost, not out of the willingness to die if need be, not to serve others and love enemies, to give to others, like Christ gave to us.
So his message of what motivates us to reach Muslims, was entirely political and carnal, fear based and worldly. And it feeds into satan’s plan to get us warring and killing, (Christians and Muslims) that the synthesis/ solution of world government and global syncretic religion might be implemented as the solution for world peace. Political-military Dominionist Christianity is being used right now to help this global plan along.
So the man was either knowingly or unknowingly (we don’t know) helping the plans of the wrong side, so to speak, rather than encouraging us: to NOT FEAR and LOVE NOT YOUR LIFE and LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR ANOTHER, and to LOVE UNTIL YOU DIE in your service of bringing Christ to the lost world WITH JOY AND HUMBLE TRUST IN THE LORD. We do not try to save our life, lifestyle, limb, culture or physical nation. We lay it down, and love like our Father loves.
I would have been so edified to hear that from this Christian Leader.
The teacher taught that the motivation (to try to convert them) is:
1. because of terrorism growing
2. because they want to take over nations and plan to take over all nations including USA
3. because Islam is the greatest threat to the world, to world peace.
4. because Islam wants to wipe (political-geographical) “Israel” off the map. Yes he said this. This motivation seems entirely fleshly, earthly and political.
Then he said: Iran will be a Christian nation! Christianity will rule the (7 Mountains) business, government, family, religion, media, education, entertainment (the 7 mountains exactly as taught by Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham!). There you go folks, straight up Dominionism.
He said, The future of Iran and Israel are united! He had scripture to back this up. He was quite serious that he meant this literally, in the physical-political. !!
He said, over 25,000 documented “decisions” for Christ. (This sounds identical to Billy Graham and CCC).
His definition of sharing the gospel, shown repeatedly over his speech, was leading ppl in prayer for God to come into your heart. Salvation was praying “the prayer”.
He taught that 9 11 was done by muslims. He showed pictures of the “twin towers” in a ball of flames and other scary pictures.
He had a lot of power point pics and charts that fanned the flames of “fear of Muslims”, and reiterated that the main reason for his evangelism was to hold back the tide of Islam and prevent them from ruling nations. weird. This is not the motivation Jesus gives us.
Also, this statement, “You can’t come against it (the spirit of Islam) with the military, well sometimes you have to use the military”,
is a statement that reveals an unstable DOUBLE-MINDEDness.
It’s either one or the other.
We either obey Jesus Christ’s instructions and love our enemies, and war in the Spirit with Holy Spirit power against principalities (spirits), OR we war in the flesh with physical war machine weapons, against flesh (literal physical men).
One or the other.
The Earthly Church has no qualms promoting warring in the flesh, and killing enemies. “Fight the enemies and kill your neighbor.”
The spiritual church, those led by Jesus, does what Jesus says: “Love your neighbor, love your enemy.”
Babylon Church has lied for far too long to the Christians, about this. It does mislead the sheep.
It is a lie that it is “God’s will” that we as Christians must war and kill in the flesh in order to survive or take out the enemy or save the country or Christendom or take back the ‘Holy Land’ for God.
Let God (JESUS) be true, and every man a liar.
I have heard this also, on Christian “God N Country” Crawford Broadcasting and Salem Communications radio stations, back when I used to listen to them. I heard very clear messages of “fear of Muslims” and promotion of politics and “war and killing” being necessary to deal with this scary “greatest threat” to us. This is not of the instructional words of Jesus, nor of the Spirit of Jesus.
Dear friends, let us encourage one another in this time, to heed the voice of our Shepherd Jesus and do what He says, doing the will of our Father.
Let us not operate in the flesh, but in His Power.
Let us not live because of fear but because of Love.
…and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” Matt.27:29
Dear friends, let us not take Dominion of this world; let us follow Jesus Christ and be like HIM, doing as He did, Jesus our example.
He did not pull rank. He did not accept the political ruling King’s crown. He did not assert His rights as King in this physical world. He did not take over any ‘mountains of influence’ in society. He did not impose the physical outward Rule of God, or government subject to Rule of Biblical Law. He did not work with the Pharisees to create any movement, Institutional Church, State, or any kind of Theonomy or Theocracy. He did not preach and work towards “Christian” (Old Testament) Reconstructionism. He did not demand power and privilege. He did not institute a State built on Christian principles. Au contraire.
He did not take physical, geographic, military, cultural, social, legal, governmental, economic or religious Dominion of the world.
But His kingdom is within us; He is gloriously ruling our souls within us.
Let us deny ourselves by resisting the battle-cries of the politically religious, and empty ourselves like Jesus, and lay down our “Crown Rights” to rule the world.
The only “Crown Right” He accepted, and demonstrated for us, was the right to be mocked and despised, the right to humble Himself and the right to die to self.
