gentle, sparrow-like saints, be encouraged in Truth

“This cup is the new covenant in my blood” 1Cor.11:25

Excerpts from an article about “How to Honorably Leave a Church”, by false teacher, predator and wolf Doug Phillips, found via the internet “Wayback Machine”. The article was originally posted on his blog in 2005 and again in 2007.

DP Quote: “Christians are in a state of covenant with the Lord. One way that supreme covenant finds expression is through the “mini” covenant of their relations and duties to Christ’s local church. Because Christians are in covenant with Christ, they are to be in covenant with a local church. They are not “married” to the local church, but they are to be in a state of formal covenant with it. This “mini” covenant (an extension of our covenant with Christ) carries privileges and responsibilities, and is not to be taken lightly.”

Me: This is a re-phrasing of the “Church is the Way to God/ Church is the Savior” deception. This is the same doctrine as stated (by means of similar flowery words) by the catechism of the Roman Catholic Church. And like the RCC, Protestantism (whether the Calvary Chapel flavor, the Willowcreek Association model or the strict Puritan/Reformed Calvinist), teaches lies that, if taken to heart, ie believed, and put into practice, only serve to bring the gentle sparrow-like saint into bondage, confusion, shame, false obligation, pain and spiritual suffering. Oh love of Truth!

DP Quote: “To put it another way, the believer’s covenant with the local church can be transferred to another Christ-honoring local church, but it cannot be “resigned,” abandoned, or simply disregarded without the professing believer becoming a covenant-breaker.”

Me: Lies. Straight from the spirit of bondage. The writer equates covenant with Church as on the same level as covenant with God.

We do not express our covenant with Christ, by demonstrating and making a covenant with an organized religion, institutional Church. 

That teaching makes “Church” out to be Christ. There is only ONE covenant with God that is in and through the blood of Jesus Christ alone. Jesus Christ needs no intermediary. He does not need The Church to step in and be the mediator between Him and the saints.  The saint has every right to leave any religion or Church or cult or group or ideology or doctrine or practice, if that thing is usurping upon the covenant the saint has with Christ. Saints all thru history (the great cloud of witnesses) have left all manner of societal, cultural, political and religious obligations in order to enter in to covenant with Christ. (I am not speaking of marriage here, I am speaking of religions, traditions, organizations, political groups, secret groups, occupations, religious teachers and such.) In other words, we cannot have two masters. Our covenant is not with “Christ, AND–“. We cannot have covenants with two entities at the same time….. one a thing and one a Person. Our loyalty and allegiance, which is part of our covenant, is with Christ. He does not share us, our heart’s loyalty, with a… Thing. We absolutely can resign and abandon what causes us to be prevented from having a clear conscience before Christ / having Truth and Life in Christ….. Our covenant is with ONE Master, Lord Jesus Christ. The Church says “To be disloyal to The Church is to be disloyal to God” and “To go against Church is to go against God.” These claims make (visible/ institutional) Church out to be God, or at least the mediator between you and God.

Your covenant with God is with HIM, in the blood of Christ.

Gentle, sparrow-like saints, be encouraged in the Truth.

more encouragement to women who witness for Jesus

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples” Matt.28:18-19

In response to this blog post article:
http://spiritualsoundingboard.com/2014/03/17/learn-to-discern-can-women-read-scripture-aloud-to-men/#comments

Any professing Christian “leader” who tells any disciple of Jesus, that they “should not” or “must not” be obedient to Christ, evangelize, speak of Jesus, preach the gospel, proclaim the Truth, or make disciples of Jesus, (which is part of loving your neighbor as He commanded) is a false teacher and is not speaking for Jesus Christ but is very much working against Christ. Woe.

To make evangelism and proclaiming the gospel about being obsessed with sex (that is, male roles, female roles) authoritarianism, power, control and domination over women, is to create a cult.

Jesus Christ Himself is the power and the authority. His Spirit indwells the female saints as well as the male saints. HE has given His authority also to the daughters of God (the sisters in Christ) to witness and speak of Him, or read scripture, to any person, as HE leads and empowers them by the Spirit.

In the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk!

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. Acts 3:6

Silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk free from what hurts, deceives, confuses, cripples, binds and hinders you: that 501c3 Government controlled State Church. You are now free to follow Jesus Christ!

You are now free in Christ! You are released from bondage and lies! Be healed in the name of Jesus Christ!

You are now the temple of the Lord!

You are healed: rise up and walk on out of that Babylon Church!

Walking leaping and praising God! Jumping with joy!

7 Mountains DOMINIONISM

Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits… Rev.17:9

7 Mountains DOMINIONISM: Where the different Evangelical Movements converge as one.

I see 3 completely different camps of Evangelical DOMINIONISM converging. These three Christian movement camps think they have nothing to do with each other. Not so.
They are all pushing for global DOMINIONISM. Rather than teaching their members to follow Christ, they are teaching them to be change agents.

Do the followers of these movements see this yet?

I see the convergence is unfolding before our eyes.

1. The Charismatic, NAR, “Army of God”, Rick Joyner/ Elijah List type DOMINIONISM.
2. The  Modernist, Neo-Evangelical, BillyGraham/RickWarren/Campus Crusade/YWAM type DOMINIONISM.
3. The Intellectual, Authoritarian, Neo-Calvnist Reformed, Crown Rights to rule/Rushdoony/Reconstructionism type DOMINIONISM.

They are all “7 Mountains” in their goal for political, religious, cultural & economic dominion,  “World Evangelization” , “converting the nations” and “changing the world”.

The “3 measures of meal” do combine, and the whole loaf is leavened.

There is also the John Hagee, Dispensationalist, State of Israel worshipping, “Israel has the divine right to rule the world” ideology, whose members can be found in all three of these movements. This is part of the mix for sure, without a doubt!

Beware the false gospel of DOMINIONISM.

(It’s a Roman Catholic doctrine, comes straight from the Vatican Basement.)

This movement is concerned with “moralistic culture, and religious, political and economic control.
It based on eating from the tree of good and evil, it is not of eating of the Tree of Life.

Jesus tells us to make individual disciples OF HIMSELF and that His kingdom is not of this world.

Rome’s Tetzel preached FEAR of “hundreds of years in purgatory” and the “eternal damnation in fires of hell” (if they didn’t pay The Church for their indulgences), and thus sold the middle ages Christians a bill of goods.

The new false preachers of Rome (dressed as Evangelicals) preach a FEAR of “losing our Christian nation”, “losing the world to the secularists”,  and they are thus selling modern Christians a bill of goods.

The DOMINIONIST agenda requires $$$$$$$$ (Get Tetzel, the pope is on the phone!)
The true gospel of Jesus Christ and His kingdom, requires the Holy Spirit.

The false Christianity builds physically, infrastructure for political Christendom and the world system, while the disciple of Christ works as a laborer, helping build the unseen kingdom of God,
which no one can SEE unless they be born again. (John 3:3)

Business Leaders==== “Leadership Network”, “Leadership Conference”—“Marketplace Transformation”=== it’s all worldly, dead, carnal flesh! It is MANIPULATION and manipulation is witchcraft.

This is about witchcraft working vs THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKING.

heed not the motivation of fear

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.

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.

Leadership. Summit.

He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Phil2:8

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time.. 1Pe5:6

New Age Christianity teaches the exact opposite of what Jesus Christ said.

Leadership. Summit.

Pride. Self promotion. Making self High up. Claiming your place in the world system (as a leader). Covetousness (for position) and Selfishness. Wise in the eyes of the world. Mighty. Save self-life. Feigning humility in pride. Seeking followers. Obeying your dreams, visions, desires. Climbing high up the ladder to the mountain of Christian ministry and worldly success. Doing the will of your dreams and visions. A wide path. Serving 2 masters, “Self and God”.

Servant. Humble.

Meek. Self-denial. Making self lower. Detachment from the world system. Sacrifice and selflessness. “Foolish” in the eyes of the world. Weak. Lose life self-life. Humbling of self. Dying to self. Seeking Jesus Christ. Obeying Jesus Christ. Humbling self to death of self. Doing the will of the Father. A narrow path. Serving only one Master.

(Please see my note in Comments.)

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.

Listen to Jesus

My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me. John10

When I was a Roman Catholic, I listened to the priest and he told me to do everything The Church says to do (all the sacraments, holy days of obligation, Mass, etc) for the rest of my life (to earn salvation). When I was a Neo-Evangelical, I listened to my pastor and he told me, (after rebuking my discernment my use of my unapproved spiritual gifts) that I was to do what they (and only they) decide I should do as service to the Church. When I was a Reformed Calvinist I listened to my pastor and he told me that it is my own fault that I was exhausted by helping(loving) “needy” people and that I should put up boundaries so they don’t burden me with their problems and take my time and energy.

Then the Lord Jesus called me OUT of that hot mess and put me in the wilderness where is was quiet. There, for the first time since I met Him, before I was “Churched” and put under the obligation to listen to and obey the Ordained Priests of Christianity, I heard His voice, the voice of Jesus. I started hearing Him all the time. The last time I heard Him was when He first called me way back in 1985. Now He was speaking again! Maybe He was all those years, I just could not hear Him. I was not listening. I was listening to the voice of my priest and my pastor tell me what to do and “how to be religious” and “how to be a proper Church Christian”. Now I could hear Jesus again. I began listening to HIM again. Guess what? The things He said to me were very different from what the priest and pastors told me.  Jesus told me what He wanted me to do.

Now I do not listen to those men in The Church. They did not advise me according to the Way, the Truth and the Life. They did not advise me according to Love. They did not advise me according to the true will of God, by the Holy Spirit.  They were false guides. Jesus is The Way and He is my Guide. He is my Shepherd and He speaks to me, and not only guides and comforts, helps and encourages me, but He tells me what He wants me to do. Now I know what He wants me to do, He tells me. I encourage you to not listen to men in The System, they do not know what Jesus wants you to do. They really are not concerned with that, anyway. I encourage you to listen to JESUS and do what He says.
