Spiritual Warfare

Deceptions in A Modern Church

Quote Posted on

In the early years of the Church say around 2nd, and 3rd century AD pious leadership saw fit to remove Israel’s influence and replace the literal knowing of truth with plutonic teachings that formed most of the today’s religious doctrines. This was an act that positioned the church into a caustic denial over spiritual exhortations and instrumented a distrust of Israel that unfortunately carries through to modern times. Though Israel is still God’s chosen nation replacement theology has removed an ordained love for her. As, many in the church today are anti-Israel since they have been taught, she has no right to be the Church or a part of a foundation of God’s glorious kingdom.

Clearly the above is a deceit in sight of scriptural truths God has laid out to us as He says we are all founded upon Israel’s history, a nation He intends to save at the end of it all. God underlines this in His word, where in fact He has an eternal plan in mind that includes both Jew and Gentile to be as He states, His Spiritual Offspring. Humanity or mankind as some like to state is ordained to bring about this spiritual lineage out of its presence on this earth and any characteristic of Him is not to be in any aspect under an influence of the devil. The process to distort God’s purpose and bring about evil and wicked works is through a present ideal of societal deceits.

One example, is many churches are in acceptance of the present mindedness over gender neutrality and accept homosexual norms supported by Church leaders. All based upon an evil deception that says gender is not defined by one’s sexual physiology but psychological and therefore subject to an influence of inclusivity and/or equity of life. This should reveal to you there is a realm of psychosis layered with sexist’s perversity designed to activate thinking clearly void of any real understanding of truths. A common work of the enemy. Math 19:4-6 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

Programs and television shows today all reveal sexuality as to be neutral in its influence within movies, but every media program promotes gender influence in almost every genre format. They have narrated for us to wholeheartedly accept sin and evils implying there is no male or female present as both are on an equal sexual dimension. Males and females have nothing to do with what they are sexually, so why think we can change or control it? Scriptures still contain story after story of relationships between males and females showing us each impact historical aspects of all creation. But our enemy is busily at work to place into a believer’s mind thoughts that take away any truth of God’s creative work in them.

While it is important you discern things correctly so that they will not be detrimental to your health and wellbeing. Many do not and end up deceived thinking it is the common things in this world promoted at pulpits as means to gain an understanding in life. The reason why truth from God’s word is so imperative for your spiritual maturity, as it trains you to have an ability to discern what is good and what is always evil about you. Heb 5:14 (NKJV) But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Those who garner spiritual mediocrity have become ill-minded toward God’s purpose of things even of what males and females are, and find themselves void when it comes to security of soul. These individuals often fault others for their own situation because they are desperately attempting to remove any stigma that says they are different than others. This is a clear warning there are amongst us, workers of iniquity not just willing to defy their presence of being but yours as well. The thing that comes to mind for the Church is warfare against evils influencing humanity’s sexual diversity, is to be a willingness not to accept evil narratives the gospel is not aligned to for one’s transformation of souls.

The void in the knowing necessary truths to fully mature its occupants leaves them in a state of immaturity. Mediocrity can also be seen in the fact churches no longer see the word essential to the work of ministering to the masses instead they have developed programs filled with dissertations of worldly preambles of entertainment style praise and worship. There is a story about a frog that was placed in pot of water and put on a stove and the temperature was slowly raised until he was fully cooked. This bears a question why did not the frog jump out during the process? Your enemy is using the same tactic, slowly changing the nature of churches by changing their culture, through spiritual deception. And he is doing it at a pace as to not create any attention to the evil in it.

How do you change a culture? First remove or cease from any past mannerisms that revealed any truths or actions within its history and then deceptively tell lies carefully narrated to establish a new manner of thinking totally ignorant about any truth from the past. This is a deception enforced by spiritual forces of darkness to bring about exactly what is now taking place in our society and in many churches. What used to be a mainstay of this nation and its churched foundation is now replaced by secular humanistic teaching purposed to raise humanity above its creator. The culture of this nation and largely the Church are rooted in the fact liberty and justice for all is laid out as an integral part of our Judeo-Christian background. This clearly reveals a covert operation will be seen designing a change to the word of God that is so deceptively like truth many will follow those who are blatantly the workers of a spiritually evil façade.

2 Peter 2:1-3 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. Notice in verse 2 he says the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, he is not referring to a manner of speech that slanders the word, but means to speak in covert ways to make the words appear as true, yet narrated to cover up any deceptive purpose. Also, in verse 3 he says by using feigned words, this is talking about using artificial substitutes for truth that are fictitious in meaning, evident by the fact they are without any power of God in them. “Worldly Preambles”

2 Tim 3:13-17 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. Paul emphasizes the importance of staying true to what has been learned from the scriptures as they bring about wisdom leading to salvation. The root word in the Greek for the word perfect in this verse is (arti) meaning suspended state or manner ‘without change’, a place where every believer should be regarding all things present in life. You and I are to be living by revelation of truth concerning God’s word and the evils about us. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

During the time of the end of the Church it is not going to be warfare solely in the spiritual realm with the devil, but with people brought to do evil through ignorance and stupidity making the battle ground much broader. The faults that lie within churches cause many to be void of life as God has purposed, accomplished by pulpits turning away from spiritual truths, leaving hearts and minds deceived to do contrary to the word. Many will make the past traditions of ministry the mediocrity of today by leaving out certain issues they see as no longer needed in an age where trends and vile emotional idealisms have premise. Though the early Church had its faults of religious piety based on plutonic ideals and deceived people for almost two millennia there are forms of spiritual deception yet to be seen in the order of things to come.

Knowing Your Rights as a Child of God|Part Three – Transformed to Love

Quote Posted on

Unity of the family of God is not built upon the same ills that affect families in the natural but on spiritual perspectives that are founded on the truth of God’s word. Our ability to accept others who are not of the same race, ethnicity, and/or culture is governed by the love we are to express toward them. Phil 1:8-10 (NKJV) For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ. 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, 10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

The love written here is AGAPE, the God kind of love that is to abound more and more, even to the full extent of its development, this is not the typical affectionate and emotional PHILEO that occurs by a social activity. But the kind of love that comes from being an active family by the Spirit of God. As I said, relationship with unbelievers provides no spiritual atmosphere capable of transformation and/or perfection of AGAPE in us.

Now, I am going to say some things many of you will not like as it reflects poorly on our ability to love as the word says we should, but it is necessary to make this known so we can grow beyond these immature actions and be who God says we are. 1 Cor 13:3-10 (BBE) 3 And if I give all my goods to the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it is of no profit to me.

How many of you were taught sacrifice is just a way of life for believers and you must be willing to die for a witness or testimony of Jesus, and all loss or lack as result of ministry shows His love. This is a religious application of the truths regarding anyone’s sacrifice for Christ sake. The reason I make that statement is because it is not done based on Agape love, but on a love of self, as it helps to rectify any failure one may have in seeing life as God sees it for all His creation. For centuries leadership has had the idea that sheep are expendable assets for their work of ministry some even seeing them as helpless members of the flock to be slaughtered over and over again through tithing and burn out of doing religious works.

4 Love is never tired of waiting; love is kind; love has no envy; love has no high opinion of itself, love has no pride; 5 Love’s ways are ever fair, it takes no thought for itself; it is not quickly made angry, it takes no account of evil; . Agape is a supernatural love founded upon spiritual principles woven throughout the word of God. Thus, based on truths of what is said here and in other areas of the word there is no way one could deem others as non-essential to the cause of Christ. To do so would reflect Agape is not the manner of love being exercised toward all of God’s offspring. 

6 It takes no pleasure in wrongdoing, but has joy in what is true; 7 Love has the power of undergoing all things, having faith in all things, hoping all things. 8 Though the prophet’s word may come to an end, tongues come to nothing, and knowledge have no more value, love has no end. This love we call Agape is eternal in its working as it is the very nature of God who also has no end. If we add to this the fact anyone in Christ is an eternal essence then Agape is to reflect exactly what the word says it should.

9 For our knowledge is only in part, and the prophet’s word gives only a part of what is true: 10 But when that which is complete is come, then that which is in part will be no longer necessary. While we know by scripture God does not see us as perfect there is one thing in scripture that we can become perfect at, it is in Agape the very love of God received as part of our transformation and essential to our dominion.

1 John 4:7-13 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

If no one’s sacrifice except that of Jesus Christ the son of man who is the Son of God can change anyone’s sinful status in the sight of God, then why sacrifice others in the name of Christ? I said, I would say things you would not like, but this is to bring to our perception that Agape is a love not built on our sacrifices but on one sacrifice, Jesus life given for all. Spiritually mediocre children of God are often sacrificed by leadership for sake of ministry so that the dynamics of the works being done are never seen as ineffective. This is seen in the fact ministries today no longer see benefit in bible study groups or home cells or even small group gatherings. And many no longer provide a subject specific teaching on all things from the scriptures.

Math 5:43-48 43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; There is learning here that takes us toward perfection in Agape that is only seen through eyes that see us as the Father sees us. Love in the perspective of God’s nature is not love that sees others as just ministerial assets or liabilities but as equal in value of a love among us for all the creation of humanity. 

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Until the day we will see all things clearly as God we are to be transformed to be as He is in nature loving as He loves and becoming what the word says about us. Without mediocrity of things revealed by the Spirit of God for a spiritual transformation into the very sons and daughters of our heavenly Father.
