Evil Whispers,Spiritual Contaminates and Accusers of the Brethren


The title of this video is “Evil Whispers, Spiritual Contaminants and Accusers of the Brethren”, but it could just as easily be described as wicked imaginations and evil surmisings.

Most Christians would be shocked to have anyone suggest they were guilty of doing such a thing as being an accuser of the brethen. Really? On the contrary, may I suggest that evil surmisings, and wicked imaginings and the like occur in Christian circles more than you may imagine.In fact, I believe even Christians are subjected to the accuser of the brethren almost on a daily basis in one way or another. How? It’s very simple; by hearing something on the news, or reading something on Facebook, or possibly from a Christian friend,and even worse, speaking wrong things out of your own mouth.

Please don’t be so shocked.It happens. Gossiping and backbiting have been almost a staple in Christian churches and among “God’s people”. Yes, that’s what I said. Jesus said something along those lines as well. Unfortunately, this can apply to church folks as well as Pharisees,(or perhaps some church folks could be considered Pharisees in amongst the brethren by their behavior).

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart[g] brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12

Words reveal ones character,and whether or not Christians have had their minds washed by the pure words of scripture and whether or not they have cast down wicked imaginations coming from thoughts arising from their own minds. Thoughts should be examined,and wicked imaginations should be cast down immediately to the obedience to Christ.

Words have power to either edify, or contaminate,as the video suggests. Listening to gossip is a spiritual contaminate. Do you know someone who talks all the time? Or,are you one of those persons? The Lord Jesus wants us to pray without ceasing,not talk without ceasing. I believe the Lord Jesus choicest saints are those who are few of words;who choose their words wisely,and are slow to speak.

In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
But he who restrains his lips is wise.
Proverbs 10:19
(NKJV)

Fighting Fire with Fire

The Apostle Paul never misses a beat, and why would he? After all, look Who personally trained him in the ways of spiritual warfare. The rub comes when we Christians don’t heed this warning and go to battle with verbal sticks and stones, resulting of course, in a futile war of words doomed to failure. The obvious conclusion of not “casting down imaginations”, and/or trying to “revenge every disobedience before your own obedience is fulfilled”.

Case in point; how successful do we imagine Christians are going to be entering into battle unarmed, in this spiritual battle against an enemy armed to the teeth with deadly weapons when they can’t even be honest enough with themselves to look at their own sins to be able to confess and admit them?
Not having cast down imaginations, and having their own obedience fullfilled?

Satans game and only weapon is deception. The Christian’s primary weapon is the Truth, and Obedience to that Truth which can be found only in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. In other words, the full armor of God.

But may I be so bold as to say, many of us rush into battle with no weapons in place with which to fight such a serious battle. Could this be why Christians seem to be loosing this battle with the enemy of our souls on so many fronts?

Nevertheless, I am still encourgaged by the fact that the Lord of Hosts is raising an bunch of Christians that are going to be His righteous witnesses in these last days, willing to pay the price, and endure hardships the wannabe pulpit and pew and many of the Internet Facebook type weekend warriors shrink from.

2 Corinthians 10:1-6

10 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:

2 But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

So Many Cults, So Little Time

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
Malachi 3:16

This is true here on WordPress of those who speak often one to another of our LORD and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. And we know that He hears us for our love for him is true and without guile. Those of us who have known and tasted of the Good Word of God, and have been baptised into His Spirit and the Mystery of Godliness know the Truth in the Lord Jesus that has set us free from the law of sin and death.

That is all well and good. In fact it is very good indeed. But what of others, who had their first experience with God in the form of one of these aberrant cults, who twist and misuse the scriptures as well as the name of God, taking His Holy Name in vain and dishonoring God the Father and His Holy Son, the Lord Jesus Christ?

We might be able to blow off such a cult as the House of Yahweh if it only amounted to just a few misguided followers, but when a cult has begun to proliferate and lead masses of followers astray, how can we continue to turn our heads away. In this case, the House of Yahweh has developed a following of at least 30,000 and growing.

It seems these types of cults are growing leaps and bounds mainly for the reason that a great majority in our modern day culture has lost touch with the Lord Jesus and His Word set forth in the scriptures.

Even those who’ve had a background in the modern mainsteam churches are falling victim to these cults. Not surprising- because so many of these institutional churches have become apostate and no longer on fire for the Lord Jesus. They are lukewarm people following the Nicolaitan error. the false clergy/laity distinction, spread like a fungus on nearly every street corner of America.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children. Hosea 4:6

Shall we not speak out and counter these errors? I for one feel led to do just that in the best venue I have available to me at this moment; the Internet. Should any of us, for that matter, preach only to the choir, and not to the outcasts, the disenfranchised, those in the valley of decision about the danger of these antichrist cults?

House of Yahweh Cult:
http://jesus-messiah.com/apologetics/cults/yisrayl-hawkins.html
This is a great article, but I don’t buy everything in it. Especially about the confusion of the Name of Yahweh. I do, on occasion use the name Yahweh, and the Son’s name Yeshua. But…I was saved, and delivered when crying out to the name Jesus, and I will never negate that name as also, a legitimate name of our Lord and Savior.

It’s just that there is so much confusion nowadays that is being introduced on so many levels, even by well meaning Christians who are sincere but lack sufficient knowledge to be speaking on certain subjects with any viable clarity.

An excellent resource I’ve found on the Sacred Name Movement and the confusion around it is this from “Let us Reason”:
http://www.letusreason.org/sacna%202.htm
Since these Sacred Name, Hebrew Roots, and similar so-called Messianic movements are growing by leaps and bounds, and since it is a mandate to contend for the faith, perhaps it would serve us all well to take a bit of time and really study this excellent source so that we can speak with authority on the subject, and not be guilty of speaking error, adding confusion to confusion.

Another poor soul, so deluded, he is using his face as a billboard. He needs the TRUTH that can only be found in the LORD JESUS CHRIST:

The Mystery of the 2 Angels, the Empty Tomb and the Resurrection Mercy Seat

Hope Arising

Hope Arising

The terrible and anguishing events of the Lord Jesus arrest, crucifixion, and burial was over.  So the disciples went away again to their own homes.

But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; 12 and she *saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. 13 And they *said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
John 20:10

There was no reason for Mary to weep,or to seek the Living among the dead, as she was soon to find out. Praise the Most High God, for the Lord Jesus had risen.

Oh, the depth and richness of the incomparable Word of God. Our LORD left nothing to chance in His Word, it confirms and validates itself over and over in the most wonderful, even breathtaking and startling ways.
This picture of the 2 angels sitting at each end of the empty tomb of the Lord Jesus, is just such an example. The perfect illustration of the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.

Consider this glorious paradox;

“And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony…” (Exo 25:22).

Do you see it? This is so amazing, how our Savior God confirms His Word. And we may now worship and commune with our Living Lord Jesus Christ in a new and living reality without a veil of separation hindering our way, but directly in the Holy of Holies.

How to Be an Effective Slave to Your Pastor

Don’t YOU wash your pastor’s car?

Don’t you have your wife clean your pastor’s house, cause his wife is too busy?

Don’t you have your wife do the pastor’s laundry, and iron his shirts?

Don’t you have your wife watch his kids, so the pastor and his wife can have a date night out?

Don’t you wash your pastor’s car?

Don’t you mow the pastor’s grass?

Don’t you shine your pastor’s shoes?

Don’t you buy special gifts for your pastor’s birthday, pastor appreciation day, wedding anniversary, at Christmas time, Valentines Day, Father’s Day, Kwanza, Lent and Ramadan? You know how pastor likes to be eccumenical.

Don’t you pay all the tithes to the church to support the pastor so he and his family can live their best life now? Would a man rob God?

Aren’t you an armor bearer for the pastor, so that he can withstand the attacks of the enemy?

Hey, just what kind of a Christian are you anyway?

God doesn’t Dwell in a House Made with Hands

God has been calling multitudes out of the four walls of the so-called “church” into gathering in houses, meeting together to break bread, and sharing Jesus with one another, just as the early church did in the book of Acts.

How simple the Lord made this for his people, yet man has complicated the simplicity of the gospel with all manner of rules, regulations, man made doctrines and traditions of men that have watered down the gospel of Jesus Christ, and in the process have weakened the original gospel rendering it nearly powerless and ineffective from what it once was.

“Yet the Most High does not dwell in houses made with human hands; as the prophet says,
‘Heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool.
What kind of house will you build for me, says the Lord,
or what is the place of my rest?
Did not my hand make all these things?’” Acts 7:48-50

What is it going to take for many church going people to realize what has changed from the original truths in the bible, into a man made system not ordained by Jesus Christ? Over so many 100’s of years, this system has become an addiction, and man made tradition, taking on a life of it’s own so prevalent and pervasive that it has replicated itself on nearly every corner and back street of Christendom; even though called by different names and operating under various doctrines, they still resemble one another.

The “church” preaches, “You can’t put God in a box”, which is true…yet hypocritically, that is precisely what they have attempted to do.

Strangely and ironically, the organized “church” itself dwells in boxes of various sizes and styles, very seldom leaving their collective boxes to go out into the highways and byways, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom. Or…showing forth kindness and being good Samaritans to those beaten up, bruised and abused by the world.

(And even if they do wander out occasionally, it’s mainly to gain new converts to their individual box).

Remember that Jesus pointed out that it was a priest and a Pharisee that walked right by the wounded man, ignoring and neglecting to minister to the poor fellow, illustrating the callouness of the organized religious system.

It’s not much different today…in fact, the “churches” have become havens for wolves in sheeps clothing who beat and abuse the sheep and drive them out into streets.

These things should not be so…Jesus was gentle and kind, calling us to follow HIM; to love and care for one another, and to care for the poor and needy.

Conversely….

Instead of giving to the poor, the box builders sow back into their boxes, even to building bigger and supposedly better and more elaborate boxes. And they call these the “houses of God” as though He lived in a bunch of different houses made with sticks and bricks, which he does not.

On the contrary, he lives in clay containers called human beings. They are those who are the temples of the Holy Spirit.

It’s my guess that the Most High God is going to blow their boxes to smithereens spiritually. And the sooner the better, even if it takes persecution or tribulation…then perhaps we can get on with what we were called to do, and that is to abandon the zillions of sects, denominations and man made
“churches” and get on about the Father’s business of being unified in the spirit: worshipping God in spirit and truth. Being witnesses to a lost and dying world, with enough power and strength from on high that the lost and hurting will actually listen and be drawn rather than either laughing or running away.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Brittneys Story of Being Abused in Church

imagesCAEONDU7

Hi there!
My name is “Brittany” and I stumbled across your blog quite by accident but I am glad I did. I have a story to share with you and your readers. I am keeping this post anonymous and have changed my name because I am afraid of being discovered with my story.
For seven years I was an active member of a small non-denominational church in the Northern United States. While I noticed some controlling behavior, it didn’t bother me because I came from a broken home and loved the idea of being accepted into a family. Aside from Sunday services, I also went to church meetings and functions throughout the week and I was well liked within the congregation. One summer, I was offered a chance to be a missionary to Haiti with an outside church group. I jumped at the chance and my church family seemed to be behind me as it was a longtime dream. The only real trouble I noticed was that my church leaders seemed to have much more communication with the people I was travelling to Haiti with than I did. I also found that they were warning this group that I was ‘immature’. (I am a professional adult with a good, stable life and they had nothing to base their accusations).
I went to Haiti and felt VERY controlled by the group that I was with. I told my home church about what was going on and they urged me to come home, so I did. When I got home, they were eager to pick me up and get me feeling better. Unfortunately, all I wanted to do was be alone and process things. They did not like that. I noticed things started to get really tense with my church. They stopped inviting me to functions and started to hold their gatherings in secret. I was promised to be included on certain activities but then they held them without me. People started blocking me from their phones and once great friends would no longer speak to me. Saddened and confused, I asked the pastor to arrange a meeting with myself and one of my church friends to get to the bottom of this excommunication. He agreed and I was relieved that this was all going to be settled. I arrived at the meeting expecting things to be worked out–but instead I was verbally assaulted and abused. Vile, horrible untruths were spoken about me; the pastor pointed his finger at me and spewed so much unholy anger. We didn’t pray, we didn’t try to reconcile, it was an all-out attack.
I have a medical illness that the church group knew about. When the stress of the situation started to put me in serious medical danger, they laughed at me and ignored my cries for help. I used my cell phone to make calls to people from the church that I knew. No one offered support for me. In fact, in the coming days no one would even confront the pastor about his behavior for fear that he would exile them as well.
During that meeting, several elders walked in unannounced and continued the ambush. I now believe that it was planned.
Aside from the PFA I obtained, there is nothing the police will do to shut this church down because of the separation of church and state laws in the United States. To this day I am haunted by nightmares and I always fear running into a church member when I am out and about. I know that they have tarnished my name in the town where I grew up and attended that church.
I would do just about anything to shut them down so that no one else has to go through what I went through. Physically, it took me 20 months to recover fully from their neglect of my medical condition. Spiritually, I am forever changed. I no longer support organized religion of any sort and have made it a priority to tell my story so that other people do not become spiritually abused.

Believe it or not friends, Brittney’s story is not as uncommon as you might imagine.This sort of spiritual abuse has gone on for ages, and to this day is still going on in the organized church. Please pray for Brittney and the others who need healing.
