A False Prosperity Gospel, House for Jesus!

https://www.today.com/home/there-s-room-inn-house-built-jesus-bronx-now-sale-t65781

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes the blind believers still think they can build a house for the Lord from the one in the Bronx to the future one to be built by the O.T. Jews in Jerusalem. Blindness on all fronts. However, there is a House, a House that the Lord Himself is building and it is not a House made of bricks and wood nor does it have a location in Jerusalem but within the framework of man. As it is written:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Hebrews 3New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Greater Than Moses

3 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. 5 “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”[a] bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. 6 But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

Yes we are His House "IF"! Jim

DAYDREAMING FOR SUNDAY MORNING!

I was having one of those daydreams this morning over the money spent for the "house" in the above post. Here is the direction of the dream:

Rev. Jones: Well the house finally sold for $15,000,000. and the owner has decided to first quit claim the property to our steeple house, avoiding any tax problems and they have asked us to use the funds for the Kingdom of God and His House.

Board member No. 1: We could send all of it to one of the many t.v. prosperity preachers as they have said we would receive a blessing by giving them our funds. 

Board member No. 2; We could send out, and fund, fifty new missionaries from our steeple house. It may be difficult to find fifty that want to do anything but the funds would help to attract some new people. It may be difficult to train the people to teach the same thing, however, that has always been the problem.

Board member No. 3: I think we should build a new "House of God" on our old steeple house site and it may be a good idea to do as J.A. Dowey did long ago in Zion City. You know, a city for Christians only will special rules like no brown shoes within the city limits. 

Rev. Jones: Well, those are some good ideas, however, the clergy herein need new housing. How will we attract new converts if they see me dressed in rags and living in a government housing project. 

Janitor sweeping in the board room: Well gentlemen, we could sell our buildings also, take the million of fiat dollars and begin to feed the hungry and clothe the naked as it is written. If we build another building with the funds, it will just continue to problem of building what God has not instructed us to do. If we attract because of our buildings and the costumes that we wear on Sunday mornings, we are just like the rest of fallen mankind.

Rev. Jones: Well thank you Mr. Janitor, however, I have been to bible college and have a greater understanding of the ways of God. Where is the steeple house check book, lets get started in this blessing!

(I had better stop, a rant is boiling up and it will be difficult to stop). Jim

Chorazin, Bethsaida and now America!

16 “To what can I compare this generation? They are like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling out to others:

17 “‘We played the pipe for you,
and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge,
and you did not mourn.’

18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.”

Woe on Unrepentant Towns

20 Then Jesus began to denounce the towns in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades.[e] For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. 24 But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.” Matthew 11.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Judgment will come quickly.

9. To conclude this head: great is their peace, who know a limit to their ambitious minds; that have learned to be contented with the appointments and bounds of Providence: that are not careful to be great; but, being great, are humble and do good. Such keep their wits with their consciences, and, with an even mind, can at all times measure the uneven world, rest fixed in the midst of all its uncertainties, and as becomes those who have an interest in a better, in the good time and will of God, cheerfully leave this; when the ambitious, conscious of their evil practices, and weighed down to their graves with guilt, must go to a tribunal that they can neither awe nor bribe. (N0 Cross, No Crown, page 113. William Penn).

Hope and new year

I love the New Year, maybe just for the idea of a fresh start. This new year I have been thinking a good bit about hope. I asked Mr. Fix what was his hope on the other forum. One of my daily devotionals recently discussed hope, and quoted Col. 1:27,"To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." I am so thankful I know what my hope is, eternal life with Christ and assurance of salvation, and grace in this life. I am also thankful to be a part of the mystery, His church.

(Devotional was in Days of Praise, published by the Institute for Creation Research, Jan 9) 

I pray each of you have a blessed New Year and we are able to continually share our Hope.

Sunday morning, have we forgotten?

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16).

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

When the fallen systems departed from the original message, lacking the move of the Spirit of God from within, they began to focus on "self" along will worldly power and positions. What do we see within the assemblies of today? Those sitting on their pews (great people with callings) having been robbed of their gifts. Do we see those "driving out demons", we will, do we see those "speaking in tongues", million do, "picking up snakes", better be right with the Lord or it is only a show, drinking poison and not hurting them, I know of stories, placing hands on the sick and they get well, happening all the time.

Old story time: Long ago when I first came to the Light of Life, I was changed within forever. I was in a Christian Business mens group. They believed in all of the above scriptures. I would think in those days,"Boy, these grey haired old men are really fortunate because they have spent their lives in real churches (S.H.) and I have been stuck on a hard pew over at the RCC." When we had meetings, always with an old alter call, the men just stayed back and would not move into anything listed above. I was shocked as I began to see that they had sold their callings and given away their ministries to become "spectators" in the Church rather than being as those who "believe" as written.

Better get ready for the demonic forces which will be felt by all upon the planet. jmo Jim

Made us a "Kingdom of Priests"!

4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.(Rev. 1)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes it is written that He made us (right now for those who have received Him) a Kingdom of Priests (not spectators) as He loved us and washed us from our sin in His Own Blood. Those who are outside, looking for another way, thinking they have found the way of their future life, never deal with their sin problem. Without the Blood, there is no forgiveness of sin. 

Yes again, He comes and every eye will see Him even those who have pierced Him and that is not just a couple of soldiers at the time of the Cross. I can see the Wisdom of the Lord in allowing the tribulation to come upon mankind. Yes there will be a separating of people, a revival in many, Muslims coming to Christ and many repenting of their folly filled divisions. 

Note: I read again in Peter Whytes book, page 80 as the Lord showed him the fallen systems: "My children have little difficulty rejecting the obviously wrong cults and sects, and dreary lifeless churches which the professional whore represents."

Where could a real prophet speak in this modern era? He would to thrown out of the SH assemblies, not welcome on TBN and attacked by the money changers wearing robes (costumes). The Lord will bring forth these gifted ones and we wait patiently. jmo Jim

First Place in Everything! yep

Chapter Six

JESUS CHRIST TO HAVE FIRST

PLACE IN EVERYTHING

"He has delivered us from the authority of darkness and

transferred us to the Kingdom of His Beloved Son, in whom we have

redemption, the forgiveness of sins. And He is the image of the

invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For in Him all things

we

re created, in the heavens and on the earth, visible and invisible,

whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities

-

all things

have been created through Him and for Him. And He is before all

things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also t

he head of the

body, the Church, and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the

dead, so that HE HIMSELF MIGHT HAVE THE FIRST PLACE

IN EVERYTHING. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the

fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all

things to

Himself, having made peace through the blood of the cross, through

Him I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

(Col. 1:13

-

20)

It is abundantly clear that God desires our Lord Jesus to have the first

place in everything. We may talk

about "Renewal and Restoration" and it is

obvious that the Body of Christ needs both, yet we have tremendous

inability to give our King first place in our personal lives and in our

"churches".

In order to give Jesus the first place, your will and mine needs to be

voluntarily surrendered to Him, so that He might live His life in us in reality.

THE WORD OF CHRIST MUST THEREFORE BECOME OUR

FINAL WORD.

We have to learn to give Him the pre

-

eminence

and to focus our minds

on His sayings, His way of life and the example of His life on earth.

Jesus is Lord of all.

His Lordship extends over all scripture

, and we

are not at liberty to take any teaching from the Bible and use it to contradict

the Word of

Christ. We must also examine our traditions and reject those

that do not have their origin in Him.

Jesus gave specific instructions to His apostles, but over the centuries

His commands have been gradually abandoned through the subtle deceptions

of Satan.

The instructions of the King have been replaced by the doctrines

and traditions of religious organizations, and these have become the

accepted standards of Christendom. (Peter Whyte)

A word from Peter Whyte

the

New Testament clearly teaches us to obey our leaders and to

submit to their authority. It is therefore very easy to produce by biblical

theology a wrong understanding of Church government, which will produce

autocratic leadership, and subservient follower

s, who do not understand the

nature and spirit of Kingdom authority.

While scripture exhorts believers to obey those that care

for

their souls,

it does not exhort leaders

 to demand submission of others to their

leadership or ministry. Husbands are exhorted to love their wives, not

to demand submission or enforce their wills and dominate their wives.

It is only the wife who is enjoined to submit to her own husband.

To

"rule well" in the Kingdom of God is very different to being a ruler

or authority in the world system, but since worldliness has invaded every

religious system, we find many Christians in leadership behaving like

worldly authorities. Some husbands dominate

their wives, destroying many a

Christian woman's decision making ability, and in some cases destroying

their marriages. Satan triumphs and the poor, deceived couple have their

lives destroyed, simply because of ignorance about Godly spiritual authority.

Pastors, elders or deacons in most church structures take affront if

opposed by members of the flock. Status is sought and guarded, while

power is wielded to make others conform. There is little difference between

such churches and a worldly business structure.

 If the Chairman or

Directors make decisions, then dismissal results if the employees do not

agree and obey. In the churches there are various forms of

excommunication that are applied, using the same worldly philosophy.

In the Kingdom of God

THERE IS

NO SUCH THING AS

CLERGY' AND LAITY.

This concept is in direct conflict with the New

Testament teaching that all God's children are priests, with direct access to

God. It is only heathen who need priests to approach God on their behalf. It

is only in Babylon

 that clergy exist, dividing God's family into classes, and

allowing the mind of Satan to control the minds of those in captivity. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> (we need restoration to the early Church and its structure).Jim

THE REMOVAL OF THE WEEDS!

Matthew 13:

The Parable of the Weeds

24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The Lord does not want to "uproot", remove, the wheat for the wheat will be gathered, not removed. Oh what a shock when the weeds are removed , taking away, from the produce of the earth. Oh what an awakening, a day where repentance cannot be found, a day of finally seeing the gates of judgment. Yes, they will vanish like smoke, as it is written in the psalms, and many will look for them and not find them.

Yes the weeds will be collected and the wheat will be gathered into the barn. OH HAPPY DAY! The harvesters are coming! Jim

Foreign invaders, first the Romans and now the Muslims!

Oh Great Britain, how will we defeat the enemy on our streets? Well did your great men of old like George Fox see the past and the future:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

(1651)

Being again at liberty, I went on, as before, in the work of the Lord, passing through the country into Leicestershire, having meetings as I went; and the Lord's Spirit and power accompanied me.

As I was walking with several Friends, I lifted up my head and saw three steeple-house spires, and they struck at my life. I asked them what place that was. They said, "Lichfield." Immediately the Word of the Lord came to me that I must go thither. Being come to the house we were going to, I wished the Friends to walk into the house, saying nothing to them of whither I was to go. As soon as they were gone I stepped away, and went by my eye over hedge and ditch till I came within a mile of Lichfield, where, in a great field, shepherds were keeping their sheep.

asterix Then was I commanded by the Lord to pull off my shoes. I stood still, for it was winter; and the Word of the Lord was like a fire in me. So I put off my shoes, and left them with the shepherds; and the poor shepherds trembled, and were astonished. Then I walked on about a mile, and as soon as I was got within the city, the Word of the Lord came to me again, saying, "Cry, 'Woe to the bloody city of Lichfield!'" So I went up and down the streets, crying with a loud voice, "Woe to the bloody city of Lichfield!" It being market-day, I went into the market-place, and to and fro in the several parts of it, and made stands, crying as before, "Woe to the bloody city of Lichfield!" And no one laid hands on me.

As I went thus crying through the streets, there seemed to me to be a channel of blood running down the streets, and the market-place appeared like a pool of blood.

When I had declared what was upon me, and felt myself clear, I went out of the town in peace, and, returning to the shepherds, I gave them some money, and took my shoes of them again. But the fire of the Lord was so in my feet, and all over me, that I did not matter to put on my shoes again, and was at a stand whether I should or no, till I felt freedom from the Lord so to do; then, after I had washed my feet, I put on my shoes again.

After this a deep consideration came upon me, for what reason I should be sent to cry against that city, and call it the bloody city! For, though the Parliament had had the minster one while, and the King another, and much blood had been shed in the town during the wars between them, yet that was no more than had befallen many other places. But afterwards I came to understand, that in the Emperor Diocletian's time a thousand Christians were martyred in Lichfield.[61]

Oh how we all need a few like George Fox and T.A. Sparks, and throw in a few like Evan Roberts for the last days in Great Britain and America. jmo Jim

Some History

Lichfield Cathedral

Lichfield Cathedral viewed from the West Front approach

Lichfield Cathedral is situated in the cathedral city of Lichfield. The cathedral dates from various periods in 13th and early 14th centuries, although this can not be allocated to fixed years, since the archives were destroyed during the English Civil War. The internal length is 370 ft (113 m), and the breadth of the nave 68 ft (21 m).

The walls of the nave lean outwards slightly, this was caused by the weight of stone used in the ceiling vaulting, some 200-300 tons of which was removed during renovation work to prevent the walls leaning further. The windows of the Lady Chapel contain some of the finest medieval Flemish painted glass in existence. It came from the Abbey of Herckenrode (now in Belgium) in 1801 having been purchased by Brooke Boothby when that Abbey was dissolved during the Napoleonic Wars. It was then sold on to the Cathedral for the same price. It dates from the 1530s. There are also some fine windows by Betton and Evans (1819), and many fine late 19th century windows, particularly those by Charles Eamer Kempe.

There were three sieges of Lichfield during the period 1643-1646 as the Cathedral was surrounded by a ditch and defensive walls, and made a natural fortress. The Royalists were defeated in March 1643, and the Parliamentarians a month later. In 1646, the Parliamentarians were once again victorious, but the Cathedral suffered extensive damage: the central spire was demolished, the roofs ruined and all the stained glass smashed.

It is the only medieval English cathedral with three spires and has an ornate west front extensively renovated in the Victorian era by Sir George Gilbert Scott. Scott also built the three-spired St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, in Edinburgh.

Good afternoon SW Medicine, Carol!

The question must be asked, even today, does the divided steeple house spires strike at the Life within the True Church? As George Fox viewed the spires, it struck at his very life. He saw, long ago, the folly of the lost divided steeple house system all across Europe. Oh yes, some had a cross on the top and others a chicken, but dead men walking within, as it is today.

What do we see today as we drive through our local communities? Is our heart sickened as be see numerous spires, on many corners, all teaching a differing view of the church? George felt them as "they struck at my life", but we are insulated for being affected by their existence. 

The thousands of spires in Europe are empty on Sunday mornings and being born in England and belonging to the state church will not gain anyone into the Kingdom of God. Places like the steeple house in Lichfield will be a great target for the Muslims in time as they love to destroy idols, however, they also have their own.

Carol, one must ask "what did George Fox see that the modern believer has not?"

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Lichfield CathedralYes, this is the three spires that George saw long ago and it stands as a witness, even today,

as a testimony to our departure from the Word first given to the Church.

Paul, what were you thinking?

Acts 21:

 And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.

13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.

14 And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done.

15 And after those days we took up our carriages, and went up to Jerusalem.

16 There went with us also certain of the disciples of Caesarea, and brought with them one Mnason of Cyprus, an old disciple, with whom we should lodge.

17 And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly.

18 And the day following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present.

19 And when he had saluted them, he declared particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.

20 And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:

21 And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.

22 What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come.

23 Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a vow on them;

24 Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.

25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

26 Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.

27 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him,

28 Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.

29 (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)

30 And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut.

31 And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.

32 Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes Jerusalem was filled with converted Jews, wanting to live under the law and still be within the new covenant in Christ. The gentiles were taken care of, concerning the law in Acts Chapter 15 as noted above:

25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

However, Paul being pressured by the thousands of Jews, was led back into the old dead temple for the sake of peace among the brothers. BIG MISTAKE! These are the areas, even today, where we can confuse the many by our following the law of Moses and bypassing the freedom via the Cross. 

Yes the prophesy given in verse 11, was ignited by Paul's entering into the dead temple of old and he was then bound as it was proclaimed. 

He who the Son sets free is free indeed. jmo Jim

Last place to seek healing?

James 5:14-15New International Version (NIV)

14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes we have a current position of weakness in the church. We see the results of the early Church in Acts 19 with Paul and the many miracles throughout the N.T. era. There was always a thread of Power, within the true Church, throughout the last 2000 years. We have seen the rise of the "healing ministries" over the last 70 years, from the tent meetings of Oral Roberts to the events surrounding Benny Hinn. 

There is also the unusual events of Sister Lura Johnson Grubb (1932) too the miracles through J.A. Dowey and John Lake. 

Yes there were the real moves and the false as it is today. When we are truly ill, what or who will we seek? Have the current "healing rooms" in your area been working or are the elders of the local church coming to anoint will oil and do they have the "prayer of faith" that will heal the sick? Have we just given up on believing for a touch from His Hand? Have we moved onward and "evolved" to a higher plane of understanding or sunk into the depths of unbelief?

I have a view. Before the Great Day, we may see the outpouring of His Spirit upon the Church and many returning to their first Love, as the Power is manifested, within the Church, which are His people.

When the early Church was functioning as directed, the miracles happened. Now we see some "practicing" their gifts without the anointing of the Spirit. Oh that the Lord would raise up the many who would be available for the needy, even outside of the divided systems, as He was Crucified outside the camp. jmo Jim

SIGN OF THE TIMES!

Well, you should have been with me today on the job site. You really missed a blessing. I met a man who had a terrific story. He was instructed by the Lord, on a Sunday morning, to enter a large Pentecostal steeple house. He was given several things to say including the judgment coming upon their system, the need for the women to keep silent in the Church and the need for restoration among many other things.

He was quickly grabbed, and in time beaten up and taken to jail. He had to endure the head pastors wrath in the court room. They did not want anything within their divided system that would shake the boat. 

The question must be asked "are we outcasts from the steeple houses of today?"

John 16King James Version (KJV)

16 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Five things that will make you an enemy of the Steeple House!

Yes Tom J., you will be thrown out of and become an enemy of the departed/divided systems if:

(1). Taking all of your tithes and offering and giving them "directly" to those who the Lord brings into your life. The system will not tolerate anyone directly feeding the hungry and clothing the naked with the s.h.'s demanded funds.

(2). Challenging the false clergy to challenge the sins of adultery and fornication within their assemblies and calling for repentance.

(3). Having prophets and elders stand in the middle of the assembly, giving public warning to the divided system for departing from the original messages given to the early Church.

(4). Upholding marriage between one man and one woman. Asking for those within their meetings who are living in sexual sin (yes sin) to come to repentance. (Shall we continue to sin brethren?)

(5). Notifying all within the divided system that you are also in the "Kingdom of Priests unto God" as it is written in the N.T. and there is not a clergy/layman separation in the Church age.

If one will come back to these basic instructions given to the Church through the apostles, they will begin their pathway to freedom of deceptions and feel the persecution of the lost/ systems that are in the state of ruin.

P.S. Tom, I could have thrown in a number 6, by challenging the so called clergy, for marrying divorced individuals in violation of the scriptures. They have entered into their sin and a price will be paid. Jim

For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse!

Galatians 3New International Version (NIV)

Faith or Works of the Law

3 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?[a] 4 Have you experienced[b] so much in vain—if it really was in vain? 5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? 6 So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”[c]

7 Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. 8 Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”[d] 9 So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”[e] 11 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.”[f] 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.”[g] 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”[h] 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
