I’m pretty sure this man is a good well meaning Christian, but the fact is, he’s leaving out a very crucial element of the truth….that’s included in his own bible about the way or ways, God speaks to His sheep. This man is unwittingly passing on a lie….”man made doctrines and traditions of men that make the word of God ineffectual”……aaaaand; “having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”.
Friends, if God be God, He, by very virtue of the fact, is a supernatural God. Man, even in church, keeps trying to tame Him down and He’s having none of it.
OK, there are multitudes of Christians who will miss the joy, exhilaration and connection with Jesus speaking right to them and saying to them, “My son, (or), my daughter, I love you”….and proceeding to impart a valuable word to them. I’ve had this pleasure many times….once, even truthfully warning me to stop worrying, or there would be dire repercussions! It’s a sin to worry! You see, there are times when the Lord has to impart a right now word to a son or daughter that couldn’t be found in the bible right at that point in time. He’s a right now God…..the same yesterday, today and forever.
Your own bible tells you not to despise prophesying! And not to resist or quench the Holy Spirit….this is talking to today’s body of believers, not just the primitive church.
Doesn’t logic tell us that after Jesus departed to be with the Father, and all the Apostles died, that we would need all the spiritual gifts even more than ever, as the church went into heavy persecution and battle with Satan and his demons? That we would need to hear from the Holy Spirit, in prophecy? In casting out demonic entities? Jesus left these gifts of the Spirit, including healing, prophesying, knowing that we would need the power to enable us to overcome. Jesus departed to be with the Father, but Satan and his demons have still been active the past 2,000 years.
Folks, if you don’t have these gifts that are included in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and fire….ask Jesus, and please!…..ask the Lord to help you get past that intellectual “form” of religion and into the depths of pure godly worship and POWER, and allow Jesus to infill you with His Spirit. You will know it when it happens, believe me! Don’t miss out on these wonderful gifts the Lord Jesus has for you and wants you to have simply because of man made doctrines and traditions of men….
I love you all!
This is a story about an experience I had at a Christian cult.
I was hitchhiking in eastern Pennsylvania back in April 1998 when this man and his son picked me up. When I got in the car, immediately, this guy gave me the creeps. I noticed a Bible on the dashboard, so I thought maybe he was a Christian.
We got to talking and he asked me why I was hitchhiking. I told him that I was hitchhiking from Iowa to New York; I wanted to visit David Wilkerson’s church at 51st and Broadway in Manhattan. I am a Christian and love to read the Bible, but when we would talk about Scripture and the things of God, everything this guy said didn’t seem right—it didn’t bear witness with my spirit.
So he said that he lived in a Christian community in Saugerties, New York—in the Catskill Mountains. He…

THE BIGGEST SCAM IN THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY WAS THIS ONE……….
Revelation 2: (To the church at Ephesus)
6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate;
15 So you have also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them (the Nicolaitanes) with the sword of my mouth.
The mystery of what God detests is revealed as the most common form of church government found in almost every church and denomination. For 25 years I wondered what Jesus was speaking of.
The key is found in the meaning of the name itself, and results in people following “leadership”, rather than Jesus Christ. And so down the “broad way” we all went.
This is “The error of the Nicolaitanes”.
Here is the truth:
|“Nicolaitane” is from two Greek words “Nike” and “Laos”
The Greek word “nike” means “to conquer”…to dominate, overcome, manipulate.
It means the exercise of carnal hierarchial control, like the world.
The word “laos” means “the people”, that is, the laity.
Thus we have by definition the deeds and teaching of those who conquer, dominate, manipulate, and “lead” the laity, or the people. What makes it difficult to identify the Nicolaitanes is that the labels changed. What Jesus faced were the pharisees, Saduccees, and Sanhedrin. He rebuked them for their deeds in Matthew 23 and pointed out their love of Titles, position, even their religious apparel.
Simply put, it puts men in the place of God, whether they be called the church board, elder, Senior Pastor, priest, or one of the many ecclesiastical titles. Clergy class (ministry) over laity (people).
And it virtually guarantees the majority of God’s people never mature but remain part of their kingdoms to support, work for, and finance.
It fosters “respect of persons”, i.e. it breeds distinctions of division and position in the eyes of people resulting in favoritism and political maneuvering for favor and privileges within the body of Christ. –in direct opposition to what Jesus taught His apostles.
Denominational, factious, competitive Christianity has given the church a hierarchial, professionalized, titled, system of church government foreign to scripture.
There is no Senior Pastor, Pope, cardinal, bishop, priest, monsignor, or denominational structure in scripture. There is no scripture giving any pastor-priest solo authority, headship, or rule over God’s people. There are no bishops overseeing pastors, arch-bishops, boards, or General Superintendents.
There are no formal titles or labels attached to any New Testament disciples including the obvious ones like the apostles.
There are no church boards, Assistant pastors, Co-pastors, associate pastors, or senior officials. There are no presidents, superintendents, youth pastors; there are no capitalized apostles, prophets, bishops, pastors, deacons, or elders.
|The word “pastor” is used only once in the New Testament and not even one Titled pastor, “Senior Pastor”, “Youth Pastor”, Reverend, or Bishop is named or titled. How many TITLED pastors are mentioned in your local phone book?|
In Revelation 2, this is one of the admonitions for the people of God who have eyes and ears to overcome: How do you “overcome” the Nicolaitanes?
In a great majority of instances it means walking out the “church” doors, going home, and asking God Himself to take their error and deeds out of our hearts. And it means NOT going to find another group that calls itself a church yet has the same error unless there is clear direction from the Lord.
If this speaks to you, then read Ezekiel 34, and continue to Jeremiah 23.
Peace and grace to you.
The Time Is Coming 7/23/19 Mary Fitzgerald Rodriguez “The time is coming”, says the Lord God Almighty, “that I will tell My faithful ones – prophesy no more to these people, for they have wholly rejected Me, My Words, My Warnings, and My messengers. 29 more words
A principality is a demonic power that may or may not sit among the register of the fallen angels. They are extremely evil, high ranking, “high places” heavenly entities who hold power over different levels of geography: from rivers, lakes and streams, to persons and assemblies, to regions, nations and even whole continents. A principality is an evil force that can only be broken in the LEGITIMATE power, authority and rank of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jezebel does not hold fallen angel status but she is still a very wicked, stubborn spirit related to the sex/ snake/ python clan of spirits. Her chief effect is slyness and being highly pernicious(i.e. having a dangerous, harmful effect, especially in a gradual and subtle way). This is how she creeps in on people, a little at a time.
Jezebel is a QUEEN spirit reigning over people. This spirit wants to be worshipped, adulated
