Immorality In The Religious Church
To all the saints in Christ Jesus and to the ones who has stumbled into darkness, who has become the Luke warm church; greeting to you from our Father and Lord Jesus Christ. My concerns stems out of the unadulterated Word of God. To bring correction out of love and of a sound mind, through the power and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God, As it is written:
2 Timothy 3:16 & 17
“all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
The Lords heart objective, is to convict, correct, establish, and strengthen, the body of Christ Jesus our Lord, before His return. For not one sin will ever enter the kingdom of God Almighty. So, what more can we say about apostasy. Plenty! The root of apostasy is the dark force of the devil. For he tries to steal, kill and destroy. To rebel against the ultimate authority of God. To discourage, as well as to try to steal salvation of the saints, which is possible, and one of his tools is deception. Remember, in:
“For false Christ’s and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect- if that were possible.”
For the devil has been deceiving the world for thousands of years. he has really gotten good at it, before you or I were born. One of the ways of the devil, is that he tries to deceive. One of the ways to combat this rising force is to:
#1. know, that you know, that you know, that you know, the Holy Word of God.
#2. Pray, lest you fall into temptation. Mathew 26:41.
#3. Stay on your guard and be alert at all times.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. (How can the believers be strong? By reading the Word of God. Prayer and going to a Church that does not compromise the Word of God.) Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devils schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that you, when the day of evil come, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then,” .
Why is apostasy happening?
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3
“Concerning the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered with Him, we ask brothers not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophesy or report or letter supposed to come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day (,of the Lord,) will not come until the rebellion (,apostasy,) occurs and the man of lawlessness, (,the antichrist), is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.”
Apostasy must come first before the day of Lord comes. That’s why, when Jesus had asked, “will I find faith on the earth when I come” He’s referring to the time of apostasy. ‘When I come,’ referring to the end times.
Seeds Of The devil
We find that the devil also plants seeds, not only in the world, but also his seed has found ground in some churches as well. For he is full of deception, (again his main tool), and he works in similar ways like the Lord God Almighty. Planting seed, waiting in time, as he waters those seeds in eager expectation. And then the harvest comes. For the devil learned it from the Lord, and that’s how he like-wise works. Seed, Time, And Harvest. And harvest is destruction, bondage and slavery to all kinds of evil and wickedness. Hypocrisy and all unrighteousness is his harvest. We find this truth in: Genesis 3:15. Not only is this piece of powerful Scripture dubbed as the first Bible Prophesy of our Lord Jesus Christ, (The Only begotten Son of God), but also shows us, that even the devil has planted his seeds all over the world. And which also proves that God Almighty is Omnipotent, and Omnipresent. For He saw the end before the beginning.
In Genesis 3:15
“So the LORD God said to the serpent, (The devil,) “Because you have done this, Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! you will crawl on your belly and will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you (,The devil,) and the woman (,The Virgin Mary, The Mother of God.) And between your offspring, (The devil’s), and hers.” (,Jesus Christ and His children).
The type of seeds that the devil can only plant, are seeds that entices the flesh. For the devil is only a flesh devil. Genesis 3:1-6, (a quick over-view.) The devil entices Eve to sin against God in the 1 and only command from God the Father, to “not eat of the fruit of the tree of good and evil”, Through 4 out of the 5 senses of the flesh of mankind, #1). Sight. #2). Feel. #3). Hear. #4). Taste. And it all started by a seed planted in the mind of Eve to consider, to eat the forbidden fruit. The forbidden fruit in the life of the believers are the things of the flesh. Also we find that the devil does plant seed as Jesus was speaking to His disciples in:
“Jesus told them another parable: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. the owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where did the weeds come from?’ ‘An enemy did this, he replied. The servant asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ ‘No,’ he said. ‘Because while you are pulling up the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. Let them both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: ‘First collect the weeds and tie them into bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring them into my barn.”
Just in case you didn’t quite understand. Jesus explains the Parable in:
“He answered, The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man (,The Son of God, Jesus the Christ.) The Field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom (,of Heaven). The weeds are the sons of the evil one (,the devil), and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels (,angels of God of Heaven). And the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire (,Hell), so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them out into the fiery furnace (,Hell,) where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father (,God the Father of Heaven). He who has an ear, let Him hear (,understand).”
That is the warning: Anything that causes sin will be weeded out by the Lord. Even the apostate Church. No one is exempt in stumbling into apostasy. A little compromise here and there, and before you know it, the unchurched becomes a leader. Maybe they are well educated in religion, but has no real experience of a true relationship with Jesus Christ, and leads the flock into sin and apostasy. A leader with his or her secret sins. Apostate conditions:
#1). False Doctrines.
There are many different kinds of false doctrines. We will just brush up on a few. All false teachings, targets those who never read the Word of God. Targeting the ignorant about the things of God, and that’s how false teachers get away with false teaching. Like for example Jim Jones. I will say this, If your church is not emphasizing you to read God’s Word on a daily basis, then chances are, that they are a dead church, or a church that’s teaching false doctrines. And never accept a Bible from a church urging you to follow along only in the Bible they give you. Always buy one from your local Bible book store.
The teaching that Jesus the Christ Has sinned. Jesus sinned? This is a very absurd, and yet surprisingly predominate teaching of a religious /dead church. The word of God specifically mentions that, “Jesus never sinned.” If He had though, (hypothetically speaking), than He could not have the power to bring salvation upon this earth, and His death on the cross would be in vain. That means that there is no salvation for no one. And that all are going to hell not the kingdom of Heaven. I can understand that those who teach this are an error.
A. They hadn’t read the Holy Word of God.
B. If they had read the Word of God, then they do not understand. For they are leaning upon their own finite mind that cannot, (by nature), understand the things of God.
C. They absolutely have no real relationship with God at all, because if they have, than the Holy Spirit who works upon this earth to convict, to bring understanding, to bear witness of the truth that this Gospel of Christ, which is being preached is accurate and is not a lie, and to correct those in error. According to: John 14:15-18 &16:5-15, (Holy Spirit). There is a difference between temptation and sinned. (According to the Webster’s New World Dictionary.)
Temptation: “To entice or induce, as to something immoral; to be invited to; attract.” (Or another words to be invited or enticed to do something immoral.) But this is not the sin because temptation is not giving into that immoral wrong. Instead it rather suggests, that one, should give in to temptation by a thought and then into practice into that sin through a temptation.
Sin: “The willful breaking of moral law. (or another words, the willful practice of immorality that was suggested by a temptation. If one is not willing to go ahead and do what that ones conscience says is wrong, than it is not sin. So being tempted is not sin, but rather its the giving into those temptations, is the sin. The Holy Word of God does mentions times that Jesus was tempted, but he never gave in to those temptations. Example:
“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit of God into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil. For forty days and forty nights He fasted and became very hungry. During that time, the devil came and said, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.’ (The Physical temptation. But notice what Jesus did,) But Jesus told him, ‘No! The scriptures say, people do not live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the temple, and said, ‘If You are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, He will order His angels to protect You. And they will hold You up with their hands so You wont even hurt Your foot on a stone.’ (The Spiritual temptation,) Jesus responded, ‘The Scriptures, also say, you must not test the Lord your God.’ Next the devil took Him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed Him the kingdoms of the world and all their glory. ‘I will give it all to You’, the devil said, ‘If You will kneel down and worship me.’ (The temptation against Character and faithfulness,) ‘Get out of here satan,’ Jesus told him, ‘For the Scripture say, you must worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’ Then the devil went away, and the angels of the Lord took care of Jesus.”
Jesus’ temptation was to prove to the devil, that He is The Son of God, by turning stone into bread, why? Because Jesus was hungry. To jump off the highest ledge, so that the Holy angels would catch Him, To prove that He is the Son of God, and then receive the kingdom of the world through an easier way, to bow down to the devil, instead of going the way of cross to take the devils authority away, by shedding His blood on the cross, for all. These were His temptations but He never gave into them. So where in the Scriptures did Jesus Sin?
Also mentioned that Jesus was tempted in the Garden of Gethsemane right before He was arrested and taken to the cross. His temptation here is to pick up His own will, instead of laying it down for the sole purpose of dying on the cross for the remission of sins of all, For those who believe in Jesus Christ, The Son of God. Also we should note, that the word “Gethsemane” means in Aramaic, “Olive Press.” Jesus has started the process of being crushed.
Mathew 26:36-46 But here in: verse 39&42
“My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from Me. (Long pause,) Yet I want Your will to be done, not mine.”
Yes He was tempted, but He laid down His own will and picked up God His Father’s will, and went to the cross to bring salvation. The only way to Heaven, by shedding His blood and raised from the dead. So where in the Holy Scriptures did Jesus sin? For He was obedient to His Father to the point of death. Also as it is written:
“Seeing then that we (,The believers,) have a great High Priest who passed through the Heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”
1 John 3:5
“And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin”
#2). Straying Away From The True Gospel Message Of Jesus Christ Or Adding To The Gospel Message.
Either what Jesus did for all on the cross is not being preached, or, they are adding to the message, that in order to receive eternal life you must believe and or do good works, is absolutely no Gospel Message of Christ at all. No one can earn the right to Heaven. Not one person. And no one can be good enough to enter the kingdom of Heaven, not one person.
Many religions, in fact, all religions say that if you lead a good life you will enter the kingdom of Heaven. Or, if you become a martyr or what have you, you will enter the kingdom of Heaven. Or if you believe in Jesus Christ and do good works you will enter the kingdom of Heaven. But I can guarantee that this is absolutely not true. The only way into the kingdom of Heaven, is through the faith in Jesus Christ. We are only righteous in His sight through His only begotten, Son of Gods’ blood that was shed on the cross.
“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law (,of good works,) is revealed, being witnessed by the law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (,God’s requirements), Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God has sent forth as a propitiation (,Mercy,) by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His Righteousness, because in His forbearance God passed over the sins that were previously committed (,Before Christ Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection), to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might (,Through ones own choice,) be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”
It is through Faith in Jesus Christ alone, that one is justified freely. The Word of God also says, “Righteousness was accredited to Abraham, because he believed God.”
“For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the scripture say? ‘Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.’ Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him (,Jesus Christ,) who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.”
And as far as not preaching this Gospel at all, are the Churches who truly denied Christ Jesus. I know this from experience. I’ve been in a church for 2 years, when I was in high school, years ago. And not one sermon was about Christ and all He did for all. The hour consisted on, 1 tiny piece of Scripture, which only took 8 seconds to read at the most. And the rest of the 59 point 2 minutes, was a life experience the pastor experienced, that pertained to that 1 verse of Scripture. I went to the church camps. Participated in the church bell choir, and was faithful every time that door was opened. But learned absolutely nothing about the Lord Jesus Christ. I did not know that I can have a relationship with Christ. For Jesus Christ is not about religion, or a religious experience that most, only experiences once, and it all wares off. No! All can have this relationship that I’m talking about, that I experience on a daily basis. Who corrects me. Who delivers me. Who set me free from bondages of sin and death. Who fills me with His Holy Spirit and leads me to the thrown room of God Almighty. And Jesus never fades or wares off.
Religion is dead! Christ Jesus is alive and forever sits at the right hand of God. I could die knowing that, what I can absolutely guarantee, (the one and only thing, I can guarantee,) is That, Lord Jesus, has the power to save! Lord Jesus has the power to deliver and set free! And Lord Jesus Is The Son Of God!
