The church has had a long run being dominated by men and their doctrines to a great extent. It has seemed that man has been at the head of almost every movement, denomination and ministry. When joining the church today; it feels like you are joining a particular club. You are forced to make a choice of a limited group of people, when actually the church is made up of all the groups and Christians in your town or city.
The church needs to become the true Body of Christ with Christ as the Head in order to become the glorious last day church. The glorious last day church is coming because Jesus prayed that we would be one, and so it is going to happen. It has not happened as yet, but it will happen in the future. Hallelujah!
The church today, has deteriorated into a number of super star celebrities, who seem to control the doctrines and teachings to a large extent, and many of the others follow them. It seems like the blind are leading the blind in many situations.
Most pastors are good men of God, and they were called into the ministry, and they are trying to fulfill their call. However, the latest trend among a few leaders seems to be to compete with one another which brings witchcraft and sorcery into play. Some of the new leaders are not content to just be one of the other leaders; they seem to want to be worshiped and they want to be positioned at the very pinnacle.
If you make yourself into an idol, than you have produced idolatry in your ministry or church. Some so-called Christian leader demand total allegiance to them (there is no mention of total allegiance to The Lord Jesus Christ).
One of the sins of Satan was that he wanted to be worshiped, and he passed this passion down the line to the carnal church leaders of today. There are churches today that are using witchcraft and sorcery to seduce and beguile unsuspecting “Christians”. This method to deceive people is as old as dirt. This type of sin comes from wanting to be the greatest and it was satan’s big downfall. Beware if you or your leaders are striving to be the greatest. They use words like cutting edge, going higher and higher, and we are the head of a movement. Where is the humility?
“But there was a certain man, called Simon, which before time in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.”
Simon The Sorcerer was able to use witchcraft prayers and sorcery to get the people of his day to think he was the greatest. Many so-called Christian leaders today are using these methods to get people to flock to them like magnets.
Some churches and ministries are now becoming part of the world system. They use Madison Ave. techniques to get more money, to bring in people to their churches, and to compete with the other churches, ministries, movements and leaders.
However, the true church is the Body of Christ, and it is part of the Kingdom of God which is led by The Holy Spirit, and it is led in the opposite way that the world system is operated. In the real Kingdom of God; the last will be first, the poor are rich in faith, and the meek shall inherit the earth; not the proud, arrogant and aggressive..
Do not be bewitched by demonic spirits that have been conjured and sent out to draw in the people. They are used to get people to serve the leader and the leaders’ kingdom instead of the Kingdom of God. The victims are tricked and seduced into giving every last penny to the leader in order to win favor, and they are manipulated, controlled and then when they are depleted; they are discarded.
Get out of the churches that are going down the way of the world system. They are going to be spewed out in the not-too-distant future by The Lord, Himself.
We need to worship, and give our total devotion toThe Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone, and then He will lead and guide us each dady.
Love God with all of your heart, obey Him, seek Him first and His Kingdom and righteousness, and you will not be deceived. Jesus Christ has to be first and foremost in our lives, and then we will have a love for The Truth, The Way and The Life that will sustain us through every trial and temptation in the coming days.
The Bible says that if it were possible even the very elect will be deceived in the last days, and so we need to get so close to the Lord so that we cannot be deceived by the many deceptions that are coming down.
The Jezebel spirit is rampant in also rampant in the churches at large, and we must be aware of the seducing, witchcraft that the spirit of Jezebel brings into the church. This spirit has already been defeated on the cross, but it is still working overtime to deceive gullible Christians.
“And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Jesus warned us about all of the false apostles, prophets, teachers and the witchcraft and sorcery. He told us that we would be sent out like lambs among wolves. Remember that the wolves will always appear as sheep, and they will come disguised as angels of light. Please pray, and ask God where you are to go, support and submit to, and He will lead you by The Holy Spirit.
Beware of the witchcraft and sorcery that will bring your mind into confusion, and it will lead you away from Christ. It iis of the anti-Christ spirit. Please do not be deceived in these last days.
