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.

my name

“To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.” Rev.2:17

The name I was born with— my earthly father’s name, meant “big man”.  But Jesus has made me a small sheep in His flock. I am glad to be whatever small, obscure servant He wants me to be in His kingdom.

The name I was raised with— my stepfather’s name (after the death of my earthly father ), meant “rich man” (literally, “of the rich”). But Jesus made me see I was poor in spirit without Him. I am now overflowing with His riches.

The name I have now, my beautiful married name, my husband’s name which I love very much and love identifying with, means, “heathen”. Heathen means “pagan”.  Isn’t this wonderful? I love this! : )

Because Jesus has taken my entire life, and now I live in Him, and He in me. My Savior gave Himself as a sacrifice for me, to redeem my life. He gave me a new name: His name. I and my Father are one. He has given me His seed, He has given me His name, He has given me His life blood. He has made me to be born from Him, from His Spirit. He has brought me into His family. HE is now my true identity. His name is Jesus Christ, my Lord and my God. How I love His name, how beautiful is He, and He shares His name and His life with me.

And He has prepared for me, a name written for me, which no one knows but HIM.

“To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.” Rev.2:17

see Him

“After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.” John 14:19

The world does not see Him; you however, see Him.

The world does not see me; you however, see me.

And I see you.

Remembrance

And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Luke 22:19

Every day we have union with You and with one another. Jesus we remember Your sacrifice for us, Your death. Every day we remember. Like You asked us to. You give Yourself to us, we partake of You; You are inside us now, Your death, Your life blood. Now we live Your sacrifice daily, now we give, as we follow You. Every day we eat your bread and drink your wine. Every word You speak is our food. Your very life is our food. We cannot forget Your love. We are filled up with You in loving remembrance and real-time fellowship-friendship of loving communion with You.

voluntary

The people will volunteer freely in the day of Thy power.. Psalm110

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses… Acts1:8

Going to baseball games (Masonic “philosophy of life” metaphor rituals) and football games (pagan “sex” metaphor ceremonies) is currently voluntary. Voting is voluntary. Going to Church is voluntary. Pledging allegiance to the flag is voluntary. Watching TV shows like the satanic “Superbowl halftime show” is voluntary.

What if they started coming around like they did in the 1st century, with mobile altars where you had to pledge allegiance and declare loyalty to say, the pope, or the USA, the president/king/dictator, the UN Charter, the Agenda 21, the global one world federation, Humanity, the Earth(Gaia), the gods, the new Earth Constitution (Global Law), the New Global Moral Commandments(Global Religion), or something like that?

What if tossing in the incense and saying, “ceasar is lord”, or something to that effect via modern means, was reinstated? What if this act proved a person’s committment to world peace and security? What if they said it proved allegiance to the “god” of the global government or global religion? What if it were required of every person, not voluntary? Are we prepared spiritually today, right now if need be, like they were in the first and second century Roman Empire?

The witnesses thru time since the giving of Christ’s promised Holy Spirit power, were volunteers. Because of love for Christ, they voluntarily chose to make their witness for Him. They voluntarily chose to say “no” to demonstrations of loyalty to this world system, and “yes” to demonstrations of loyalty to Christ Jesus. Their witness was voluntary, motivated by love. Their power to be witnesses was from the Holy Spirit.

Now you voluntarily choose to say ’no’ to demonstrations of loyalty to other gods and the kingdoms of this world. Now you voluntarily choose to demonstrate your love and loyalty to Christ and His Kingdom, which is not of this world.

That great cloud of witnesses from Hebrews 12:1 is not only a past event, describing only ancient saints from two thousand years ago.

How sweet that Jesus has spoken many words to us, and continues to speak to us through the Holy Spirit, to prepare us for our own part in the great drama. As you take your voluntary active and verbal stand for loyalty to Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, you become a witness. As a witness of Jesus Christ, you too become part of that great cloud.

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.

my dominion mandate to you

“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.

doing what pleases Him

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Heb.13:20-21

Legalistic, externally religious(2Tim3:5), political and culture-obsessed Evangelical Christianity will sign up for the one world religion the minute it is presented to the world as a neat and tidy set of moral laws that must be obeyed.

But you will keep following Jesus Christ by the Spirit of the living God, doing the will of the Father. Doing what pleases Him!

resist the pressure

But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. 1Pe5:9

The tribulation is, in part, “pressure” and temptation to join with the faith of satan (lies) and demonstrate that faith through works.

But we resist this pressure and temptation, in the faith of Christ, (Truth) through HIS POWER in us, demonstrating our faith through works. We stand in Him as we endure to the end.

This pressure and resisting lies and sin causes us suffering, thus by His power we mutually encourage one another daily, out of love for one another.

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.
