THIS ISN’T ANYTHING NEW BUT CHRIST WILL PUT A STOP TO IT!
I saw this manner of spiritual movement long ago and recently wrote about it in my last book “What From Hell Is Going On In The Church” in a chapter titled – Time To Boot The Devil Out – “(Here is an excerpt where I mention that the Spirit of God is pressing toward the final hours of the Church’s presence and is going to expose all the evil workings that are afoot. Some of which have been at work ever since its origin, such as the spirit of religion where the truth of the word is metaphorically skewed to render control to man, rather than to God. So what will bring on this sudden judgment of the things that are at work in the churches today by both man and devil?
That answer will come along soon enough, but let us delve into some facts that are helping to prod this along. 1 John 4:1-6 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Anyone who has been in the Church for any period of time has been privy to this exertion of scripture in its assurance that these so-called false prophets will be present. However today the concern is, is there an ability to discern any working of them? The answer may not be as apparent as we may think. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ comes in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ comes in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. This aspect of the spirit of anti-Christ as mentioned here is not in reference to the Antichrist that comes on the scene just before the beginning of seven years of tribulation. But according to my Greek Expository, it can mean either “against Christ” or “instead of Christ.” And if we consider combining the two one can assume that under the guise of Christ, opposition to Him might occur. It is this latter aspect that is the one we need to focus on, as this describes how the current events are unfolding in many churches of today.
When we take the next verse and for a moment learn beyond what we have been declaring for centuries in the Church we see its true definition. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Those who are born again by the Spirit of God are His offspring and have, not by anything they have done but only by what Christ has done, been placed into a position that overcomes any manner of the evil spiritual premise. And what is the quantifier that this is so? The one who is greater in them is the Spirit of God as revealed by the word of truth. Just as this next verse reveals a person who expresses an anti-Christ spirit is not of God, but of the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. Because by their words they use narratives that characterize the ways of the world in what they say so that those who are of the same manner of spirit will be attentive to it.
Today this anti-Christ characterization is occurring at pulpits where there is a form of the gospel being propagated and narrated solely to create a pandering to the worldly desires by false prophets who represent a false god. And it is purposely being enforced by utilizing the impact of entertaining the soul to bind one’s spirit to a guise of Christ but never really born of Christ. Can you see the difference between the ones who are of the spirit of anti-Christ and those who are true of Christ? This anti-Christ spirit isn’t something new it has been around almost forever, but it is now becoming an acceptable mannerism within many churches. And yet it is ungodly because it elevates an unfamiliar character of Christ in the Church solely to enforce this-worldly manner that the Church is prophetically bound to minister against. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. This verse doesn’t take a long explanation of what is revealed here. Simply put if you are an offspring of God then you know God and hear by the Spirit of truth, but if you are not an offspring of God then you do not know Him and can only hear by the spirit of error.
Now how does all of this fit into context to what is going on in the churches that characterizes evil from HELL has arrived! Well take the previous verse for a moment and look at the word translated error, it is the Greek word (plane) which basically means to wander or forsake the right path. This can be applied to let’s say morals or those things we consider to be right manners in the sight of God. If one takes a path not expressing good or right morals we call them immoral or sinner. So then what would be the difference between one taking scripture that is by the Spirit of God right in His sight, and then deceivingly delivering a doctrine that’s not right? I’ll say it so you won’t have to, this is equivalent to fraudulent activity of the worst kind because by its errors it affects the morality of the corporate Church and creates issues that are obviously purposed to discourse any truth being present within.)”
Christ will begin at His house to clean out all spiritual roots of evil that exist beginning at His place of appointment “the pulpit”. 1 Peter 4:17-19 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
