Jesus said, in the book of Matthew 24:24 “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
How is it possible for the elect to be deceived by false christs and false prophets? There is only one way- that, like the devil- they know the bible, and can bend it to fit their own meanings, being so similar to what Christ and his Apostles taught, that honest, God-fearing people (and pastors!) can actually be totally deceived!
A blatant violation of scripture would be enough, to properly trained Christians, to show up the deceiver immediately. However, with the pathetic nonsense that Christians have been doing with Christianity for the past, oh, 500 years or so, Christians are NOT properly trained, and have been so blown around by the wind of ‘special secret insights and understandings’ of scripture, that even the pastors buy into the LIE.
Jesus also said, in Matthew 12:25 “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” And in Luke 12:52 “For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.”
So, there we have a BIG part of the problem. The house of God is divided, divided in many ways, all in opposition the only personal and direct prayer of Jesus in John 17, that they may all be ONE as WE ARE ONE.
How can we tell the pastors have been deceived? They are indeed cooperating with the Anti-christ in a very real way, AND misusing scripture to do so. They have fallen in love with their own words, their own thoughts, and have rejected… well…
I quote: “Phony Christian leaders are brainwashing their congregations to accept the premise that the totalitarian police state is “of the Lord” and that they should get on their knees and lick jackboots while the round-ups take place as citizens are processed into quarantine zones and detention camps by the National Guard and U.S. troops returning from Iraq.”
In order to justify this horrendous travesty, the Pastors (and the fascists) quote this scripture: Romans 13: and tell us to:
Submit to Government
1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.”
Let this be clear: EVERY SOUL SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE GOVERNING AUTHORITIES.
In the case of America, the governing authorities are the CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS.
Under martial law, which is ILLEGAL according to these founding documents, EVERY SOUL including the President, the Representatives, the Judiciary, the Military, the Police and all officials from the least to the greatest, are BOUND BY SCRIPTURE, OATH OF OFFICE, AND LAW to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.
The role of the pastors is to remind each of those souls that they are in VIOLATION of the very texts they seek to use to garner complicity and quell ‘dissent.’ The Pastors should be quoting the second verse AGAINST them: Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
Furthermore, under illegal martial law, the President is no longer a ‘ruler’ but a TYRANT. Therefore, verse 3 says: rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.
What, exactly, is illegal martial law, and the illegal policing of Americans, than a terror to good works?
And here, in verse 4: if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain
In Christian Tradition, we have the Just War Doctrine which DEFINES, according to Christian morality, the very restricted ways in which war can be moral and Christian. This is no small matter, given that under EVERY SINGLE TENET of the Just War Doctrine, the wars we have been conducting are PURE EVIL.
Christian pastors are obligated, before the God they claim to represent, to declare and make PLAIN that our ‘government’ which has contravened our law, has ALSO contravened international and Christian law in its purpose for and conduct of war.
Specifically, our ‘government’ has declared as POLICY a pre-emptive, first strike NUCLEAR war to be on the table. The Catholic Bishops have come out and publicly declared that ‘NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE PURE EVIL.’
Just like any other Christian Doctrine that they MUST teach their flock, such as the evil and immorality of abortion, the pastors are obligated to teach their flock the evils of pre-emptive, first strike war; the evils of nuclear weapons; the unspeakable evil of actually being willing to attack a poorly armed developing country, who is no credible threat to us, with NUCLEAR weapons.
Due to the arrogance of divisive Christian pastors, who have chopped up the Body of Christ with their preposterous and outrageous interpretations of scriptures that they barely read, the pastors have BECOME DECEIVED BY THE ANTI-CHRIST AND HAVE BECOME HIS HANDMAIDS.
It is time, NOW, for Christians everywhere to give up the idea that Jesus Christ is the LIAR- He promised to be with His Church TO THE END OF THE AGE. However, in pride and arrogance, there are all kinds of Christian Denominations that feel that as soon as He ascended to Heaven and the last Apostle died, that the sins of the people IN the Church which the Apostles started, drove the Spirit OUT like the money-changers, until the day that God SAW THE LIGHT when you were finally born, so that these NEW DENOMINATIONS proclaimed themselves specially ‘chosen’ by God to be the remnant.
No, indeed, FEMA & Patriot Act Pastors, YOU have been deceived all along, you have done it to yourselves, and NOW you are TOOLS to be used by the Anti-christ to help bring in his reign of terror, on the backs of your ‘sheep,’ at the expense of the Constitution and of YOUR COUNTRY, all without a peep of dissent from a single one of you!
But, YOU WON’T. You won’t give up your positions, you won’t humble yourselves and seek to re-unify the Body of Christ, you won’t change your preaching from the Prosperity Gospel to the CROSS; to the one of Christians ‘making up for what is lacking in the suffering of Christ.’
You will PREFER to be deceived because it is …. so close… SO CLOSE… to what you PREFER to think is scriptural interpretation, the ones you’ve ignored, torn out of context, mistranslated and misused all along to get your tithes, your honor, your respect, your wealth… can 500 years of ‘theologians’ be wrong?
Yes, especially if you prefer to believe that the previous 1500 years of theologians were wrong first. What, exactly, has made YOU better? What, exactly has made YOU more useful to the Kingdom of God? Who do you think you are???
You know from Revelation 13: So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” 5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue[c] for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe,[d] tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
By setting aside the God ORDAINED Constitution and Bill of Rights, illegally and without precedent, the government has enshrined laws of MEN in the place of the laws of God- the beast has empowered the devil. There is NO OBLIGATION for any Christian, or anyone who receives the ‘blessing for all’ of the Constitution, to obey the laws of men seeking their own evil self-interests.
The ONLY answer a genuine pastor and man of God can make is the same one the Apostles made before him: “We must obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29.
However, you yourselves are unable to see through the deception! You yourselves have NO Discernment of Spirits that is given by God to His true shepherds. If that doesn’t frighten you, ‘shepherd’, it should. You, whether for blessings or condemnation, must answer to the Lord for the souls in your care and keeping. You are permitting them all to be sacrificed to the anti-christ as a blood offering to evil.
Recall that the Beloved also said, “Not everyone who says to me Lord! Lord! will get into heaven.” The sifting of sheep and goats has begun IN EARNEST, in our day, and in our present realities. Who among you hasn’t preached that these are the ‘end times’ spoken of in Scripture? Who among you hasn’t ‘warned your flock of the anti-christ?’ Yet, you yourselves have fallen for him. There will be no rapture to bail you out of your responsibilities before God. The anti-christ is misleading the entire inhabited world, and you are helping him out. Like everybody else, you will ‘reap what you sow.’
It is TIME to prepare your flock for the events of verse 10- since NO ONE has stood up to the EVIL so far, but has been deceived in so many ways, so that even proper governance is removed, then it is time for the captivity, patience and faith of the saints.
