ALL

For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 1Cor14

Not a male? Not a Clergyman? Not a Theologian? Not a pastor? Not an MDiv? Not ordained? Not an owner or employee of a 501c3 Church business? Not an owner or member of a recognized tax-exempt Ministry? Not “accepted” by the inner circles of Ecclesiastical Power? Not a graduate of systematic theology school?  Not a problem!

You may ALL prophesy!

You have no need of permission from someone above you in some hierarchy.

You also are ekklesia. You also have the Holy Spirit. The Lord also speaks to you. He also reveals to you. You also have a part to play. You also have something to contribute. Yes, you also may participate, along with all the others. You may speak to others what He has given you to speak. You may edify and exhort and proclaim.

That all may learn, and all may be comforted.

You have permission FROM GOD to prophesy. That Christ’s flock may be edified, taught, warned, comforted, encouraged, exhorted.

You are a member of the Kingdom.  His Kingdom is a Kingdom of priests. All the saints in the Kingdom are priests.

The ekklesia, His Kingdom, is made up of ALL the saints. You are a member of that ALL.

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.

is your church green yet?

“By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.” Ez. 47:12

A homeschool co-op class my child is taking is meeting at a Church building. As we were heading to the meeting room, I passed the “sanctuary” of the Church building. People were busy unpacking boxes, putting up greens, wreaths, decorations of all kinds.

The “sanctuary” room looked almost identical to the last Church business I attended. Old (dead) wood, 1950’s architecture, pews, carpet, “stage”, pulpit, drums, American flag, Christian flag, stained glass windows, hymnals, order of service, tax-deductible donation envelopes………….even that same musty old smell. It was almost like stepping back in time. It was a weird déjà vu.

The pastor’s wife was hanging decorations on the wall. She cheerfully said to me, “Yes things are really coming together here today! We are greening up the Church today! So is your Church green yet?”

JOY filled me! I raised my arms up, and with a smile I told proclaimed,

“I am always green!
I have the Spirit of Jesus living in me!”

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!

this temporary internet fellowship

“Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Jude 1:2-3

Guest Post By: Timothy LaVigne (Via Facebook)

By the time the powers that be pull the plug on what used to be an overtly Christian press, radio outreach and television ministry, the Gospel will have long been diluted and the music so convoluted that truth will barely be recognizable or missed. Oh we’ll miss the imagined freedom to preach and we’ll suffer withdrawal for a season as we are totally weaned off our dependency for buzz words, pretentious mantras and supposed religious and patriotic rights. Many restrictions will eventually alleviate us of our social media privileges. Blogs, free-lance articles and opinionated commentary will be systematically screened and we should expect to be fined, at first, to help harness our proclivity to call attention to sin and immorality. Judicial mandates will be levied in such a way so as to reduce open opposition to the change and will reduce what was once free speech to nothing more than a memory. I’m guessing some of us small time agitators who make waves or stir up small pockets of controversy are already gradually being neutered. It may appear we have a few thousand friends, fans and followers, say on facebook alone but is it realistic to believe that in most cases 90% of those we think are our friends are seriously inactive, critically indifferent or just void of an opinion altogether? I understand that man shall not live by facebook alone but still, why the seeming lack of even the mere, by the numbers traffic? Brethren, our days of interaction are numbered, our true friends are few and we will in due time be separated by laws yet to be initiated. Some are experiencing this in their local fellowships and in their own neighborhood. All that can be expected is to stay the course, be strong in the Lord and keep the faith once delivered to the saints.

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.

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.

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.
