Witness to the Christians

He witnessed to them from morning till evening, explaining about the kingdom of God, and from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets he tried to persuade them about Jesus.
Acts28:23…He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ–with all boldness and without hindrance! Acts28:31

A Christian parent did a short devotional lesson with 150 kids and teens from Christian families. He then asked them to get in groups and discuss the question, “What do you want to be doing, or what would you like to see happening in the world, 20 years from now?”

A teen boy stood up, it was his turn to share for his group. He joked in silly manner, “World peace!” The parent leader said, “Oh yeah, how you gonna do that?” The boy said, “Kill all the people who are against world peace!” and he laughed and sat down.

No. No! Not kill all the people who are not “for world peace”. My heart breaks.

His parents are ministry leaders in Church. Has the boy not been told about the Kingdom of God and the Way of Jesus? He does not know.

Do they not know the new covenant way about love, doing unto others, about loving neighbors and enemies? About denying self? About LIFE in Christ? About being born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead?

Have they heard about the Way of the Kingdom? Do they know about the new and living way? American cultural-Christianity is nearly identical to the world. Does it see the Kingdom of God as something they must violently bring in, via force and Dominionism? Do they not know it is here now among us? This kind of carnal Christianity is part of the “Roman Empire”. His kingdom operates in an entirely different way than the world system. How can they know if they have not heard? How beautiful are the feet of those who bring tidings of good news.

They have not heard the basic teachings of the kingdom. “My kingdom is not of this world.” We must tell them. We are His witnesses. The Father has transferred us from the power of darkness to the kingdom of His beloved Son. We are ambassadors for Christ, God is making his appeal through us. We implore those in Churchianity on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

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.

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.

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!

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.

there is ANOTHER KING

Guest Post:

Announcing Another King

by Bill Johnson of Canada

“and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.” Acts17:7

Acts 17:6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

Paul and Silas, in “turning the world upside down”, by going forth with the gospel were a working power of the Spirit prophesied  in Isaiah 29-16. They were known for being diametrically opposed to  the decrees of the State. . They were “turning the world (system) upside down.” A reflection upon what Jesus told the women at the well in John ch. 4; Man will no longer worship God in temples of organized religion, which lifts up the works of mans hands, but rather God is a Spirit and the true worshiper must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. What was their inflaming message that turned the world upside down? Were they telling the congregations to seek out  a Pastor or Farther and support him; go to church every sabbath day; go along to get along with the world and their system by conforming to it? Could this have been the message that set the city fathers against them in verse 7? I think not! Were they asking people to send their tithes to them so they could build a nice church or develop a Christian youth center to keep the teens off the streets? I think not? What could it have been that made the works of Paul and Silas so contrary by “turning the world system upside down”? The answer is found in verse 7:

“Whom Jason hath received (into his house): and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.”
 
Paul and Silas were announcing ANOTHER KING!  One who’s kingdom IS NOT OF THIS WORLD… They were forming congregational bodies that could meet daily anywhere at any time in the name of the LORD. Assemblies that no longer looked to Caesar as their king.

Contrary to revised history and the false pundits of today, Paul and Silas weren’t the “church builders they claimed them to be. They weren’t proselytizing people into a 2 fold child of hell from one church or synagogue to another.  They were establishing freedom in the Spirit to serve their King Jesus. They weren’t building and attending churches! Please understand the foundational ground work for these assemblies in the New Testament bears no resemblance to what we know today as “church”. In fact they were 24/7  sabbath gatherings of God’s people, who were meant to live together by the ecclesia pattern in communities, holding all things common, under the government of God, through His anointed spiritual elders of godly obedience. This is the Acts 2 model of assembly after the Spirit, holding fast the doctrine of Christ, and not after the arm of the flesh holding fast the traditions of men “ie” “the Nicolaitanes”..The early church body were kingdom builders in the Spirit! The members themselves were the church, not the buildings, institutions, and traditions of men and its so-called Christianity. The true Christian ecclesia’s we read about in the New Testament were independent bodies of Christians, when two or more are gathered in His name. Independent from worldly kings and governors, being led by the Spirit of grace, thus being ruled by the authoritative  government of Christ unto obedience to Him, a living movement, modeled after the Sermon on the Mount.. These lowly men were walking in the light of the gospel, and  reigning over the darkness of this world, treading upon serpents and scorpions, by dethroning rulers in the minds of the people, removing the deception,  and alienating them from the mental hold Caesar had upon them through heathenistic central government. They were teaching the principles of Christian government under Christ, the King of a kingdom that is not of this world, by preaching the new way of the gospel> love thy neighbour, do good to those who despise you, be not quick to anger, pray for your enemies, go yet another mile, have no malice, take no oaths, lay down your sword, for those who live by the sword  will perish by the sword, worship the one true God in the name of Christ, and thou will receive treasures exceedingly in the kingdom above..  They were putting forth the call of God to whomever would hear and obey HIS commandments, and of those whose hearts responded to the call became citizens of Christ’s kingdom and joined themselves to the ecclesia’s, or community of believers who walk by faith and not by sight. On the contrary, organized state religion, walks by sight, seeking signs and wonders through the works of man’s hands, a directive of having no faith, “ie” the Cain model of worship. The holy scriptures do not teach us that churches, their masonic buildings, their demonization’s;  and the ways of the Nicolaitanes,  would eventually take the place of His assembling of the saints gathered in His name. Therefore,  Paul and Silas were a threat to the existing establishment  8 And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.

grace and truth bill

history

and he had in his hand a little book which was open…………….. Rev.10:2

Just about everyone famous or well-known in politics, governments or Christian religion, were part of the Beast. That is, the anti-Christ world system of satanic government and satanic religion.

The true disciples were not famous world leaders as the world defines ‘leaders’. They were not movers and shakers according to the world. They did not become famous in government or religion. They did not become household names. They likely did not make the history books at all. In the eyes of the world, the true disciples were pathetic nobodies (“lambs for the slaughter”, as it were).

Most mainstream history books (secular or Christian) teach the history of the Beast.

But God knows all the details of the hidden history of His true people. He keeps the history of His kingdom, in His books.

And He knows what the famous men of government and religion have done to His people. He has kept a history of that also.

God is speaking, and has spoken, and will speak to these things. He will and does now prophetically speak against many peoples and nations and tongues and kings. He speaks against those who, under the pretense of “Christianity”, have done atrocities against the world’s people (to whom the gospel should have been lovingly given). And He speaks against all those who have done atrocities against the gentle, childlike Jesus following people of the kingdom of God.

opting out

…transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, Col.1:3

As followers of Jesus who are called by Him, we now desire to opt out of what we were a loyal member of before. Previously having undying allegiance to the State, and “loyalty to country”, we now opt out. Previously having unquestioned adherence and loyalty to Religions, religious traditions and organizations, we now opt out. We leave behind loyalty to these kingdoms because we have been transferred to another kingdom, the kingdom of God’s beloved Son. Our heart now has no desire for loyalty to those kingdoms of which we no longer are a part. Now our membership is in Him. Now all our allegiance, love and loyalty is transferred to Him.

So when the previous kingdoms come after us, demanding that we continue to perform actions, reactions or rituals that prove loyalty and submission to their kingdoms, we choose to opt out.
