light shines in the darkness

That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it. John 1

I have a friend who still dabbles in involvement with Churchianity. He does so, in search of loving fellowship and opportunity for Christian service. He continually gets hurt and confused, yet he keeps going back to Churchianity-sponsored events, like a battered victim going back to an abusive lover/spouse, in hope that things will be “different this time”.

He is a light in the darkness. The darkness brings discouragement and rejection yet the light brings joy and love. He is a bringer of Light’s joy and love, even in the darkness of Churchianity’s corruption and dishonesty.

He wants to serve. He wants to help. He wants to give. In the name of Christ, and in the love of Christ. These are his simple, loving and profound gifts to the world.

He went to a big Church ministry event, offering himself as a servant helper. He also has ideas to contribute. The leader of the ministry berated him, chewing him out verbally, putting him down and in his place for overstepping his bounds and not keeping his “place” as obedient mindless volunteer. (His crime was offering a few ideas for how to do the ministry in a more effective manner.)

But that day, he also had the opportunity to lovingly, gently minister to the spiritual needs of one family and he was a blessing to them. His light shined in the darkness of the hypocrisy of this big well advertised, well attended, Church-State, pop “outreach” event.

He went up to The City to join a popular ministry organization, to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of San Francisco’s poorest people.
When he went online to sign up, he found out he had to pay $25. for the privilege of working with this organization in their holiday outreach event. This was money he did not have to spend. He can’t afford to pay a fee to a 501c3 Incorporated business, in order to freely give what he has (love, kindness, help) to others.  He also knows that we sheep should not have to pay the “Clergy” or any business for the right or privilege of doing evangelism, encouraging others or feeding the hungry, or using any other spiritual gifts for that matter. He sadly went elsewhere and found some other place where he could feed dinner to the homeless on that day, without paying a fee to do so.

Another week, he signed up with that group in The City for a ministry day that was offered for “free”, ie no fee required. On that day, he (and two other men) together as a team physically and spiritually blessed and helped a gentleman who lives in a tiny SF Tenderloin apartment. His light shined in the darkness of the hypocrisy of the famous Evangelical Famous Pastor led, “serving the poor” group.

His joy overcomes his sadness. The Light within him, encouraged him. His light still shines. The darkness did not overcome it!

He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives!

“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

But.

“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.

2 mothers contrasted

As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. Is.66:13

As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” Is.66:13 niv

The ironic and horrific reality is, that it is actually DominionistfakeChristianity that created DominionistfakeIsrael, both of which are antichrist (two factions of evil, a split personality so to speak) and both having the foundational core of pretended righteousness, fake holiness and claiming “representing God”, on the outside.

On the inside they together are that Babylonian, Talmudic, Christ-hating, saint hating, occultic, blood-lusting, satan worshipping coven that loves lying, deceiving, stealing, destroying and killing people. They claim “leadership”, publicly pretend “concern for fellow-man” while, as Babylon the Great (whore), mother of harlots, secretly being the keeper of “the deep things of satan”, are the originator of the abominations of the earth. (They promote spiritual deception and the outright acts of disobedience to the instructions and Truth of Jesus Christ).

Likewise, DominionistfakeIslam, which ALSO loves to kill, is also merely this mother’s (DominionistfakeChristianity) progeny and slave, created to serve in achieving the goals of their father the devil.

The irony is great… the self-declared paragons of “Bible truth” and godliness, (falseChristianity+fakeIsrael) are actually “that woman” the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. This “mother” has no love. She is a conscienceless, compassion-less, loveless, raging psychopath. The Mother of Harlots: The ultimate abusive mother.

And they are “that woman”, (that mother), that mystery…..

BABYLON THE GREAT

THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS

AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

Rev.17

….who is decked out to the 9s, reveling in her blood-lust, practicing witchcraft, counting her riches, drunk on killing, and riding that scarlet beast.

They are the synagogue of satan. The ultimate irony.

Meanwhile the Lord, Jesus Christ is going around rescuing each one of the helpless,  “least of these” little lost sheep which perch on the thin ledge in sorrow and terror. He rescues them. He brings them into His arms, holding them close in compassion, comforting them in their hurt and distress. They find safety in Him, and love. He brings all these little ones comfort, care, protection and compassion. He carries them, holds them gently, feeds and nurtures them.  Lord Jesus Christ our Beloved God: the ultimate good and loving mother.

Jesus at my door

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. Rev.3:20

Christ came to visit me. There He was! He stood at the door and knocked. I heard His voice
and opened the door and He came him in. I gave Him a warm hug. I was so glad to see Him.

We sat at my table and had coffee and talked. We laughed and I learned a lot listening to Him teach me deep things. We shared food together and talked more. We cried together,  yet we shared joy, encouragement and hope. I learned profound truth from just watching Him live His life. We had sweet communion together and shared friendship and the purest love.

your identity

“your life is now hidden with Christ in God” Col.3:3

The corrupt Church System loyalists’ identity is found in being “Evangelical” or “Reformed-Calvinist” or “Pentecostal” or “Lutheran” or what have you. Thus they do not want to be separated from those things. Their Church identity is their life.

Our identity is found in Christ Jesus our Lord. Thus we do not want to be separated from Him. He is our life.

we are Jesus, they are Jesus

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matt.24:40

We are living out Jesus life in us (we are one with Jesus) as we experience His suffering, rejection and pain.
We are living out Jesus life in us (we are one with Jesus) as we minister love and help to the little sheep in His flock that are suffering, rejected and hurt.

We “are ” Jesus in our own experience as we experience His suffering rejection and pain.
We “are” Jesus to them as we minister love kindness and help to the little sheep.

We, as Christ, are living the life He lived. We are “taking it” (abuse, pain, sorrow) as He did. We, as Christ, are ministering to the least of His brethren, His ministry. We are “giving” (love, healing) to the least of the little sheep, as He did.

Lofty words, published books, well attended conferences

Dear children, let us love one another not just with words and speech,
but in deed and truth. 1John3:18

deed=actions

Yes right words are important, yes truth is important
but so are deeds …….

Missing even 1 of those 3 will make a mess
and even cause people to be hurt.

Many Lofty words, claims of knowing truth, published books, well attended conferences, exclusive “invitation only” Theology clubs, popular Movements, superstar famous Christian Leaders…………. nice, but is there present, the fruit of the Spirit?

The Holy Spirit.

The Spirit of Jesus.

By our fruits (deeds) shall we be known.

Each tree is recognized by its own fruit….. by their fruit you shall know them.

Fruit of love.

Fruit of kindness.

Fruit of gentleness.

Fruit of courage in the face of fearful trials (a manifestation of faith).

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”

(The power of God to manifest the deeds.)

These who deny the power thereof, do not just act religious and talk religious, and perhaps verbally deny the power of God….they deny it with their actions; there is no demonstration in them, of the power of God.

Which comes from the Holy Spirit of God.

……These who deny the power thereof…………. : 

From such turn away.

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.
