A call to Churches & Believers - Return to God's Pattern For His Church & The Family


IT'S NOT ABOUT RELIGION AND IT NEVER WAS.

THERE IS NOTHING TO PURCHASE, NO ORGANIZATION TO JOIN, YOUR MONEY HAS NO VALUE HERE.

Dear Reader:

The return to God's Pattern for His Church and The Family is the most important and relevant post on this website.

It is written to be shared with Christian Leaders, Pastors, Elders, and Church members (Men and Women). To awaken them, and return to God's Pattern for His Church and The Family, NOT man's.

The return to God's Pattern for His Church and The Family

The return to God's Pattern for His Church Not Man's Religions, Denominations, Spiritual Organizations, or Philosophies.

An open letter to Christians, Pastors, Church Leaders of all Denominations.


Dear Reader:


I have not been available to work on this new site and am having to re-educate myself with a new website building program. I now have some time and will be working on the site and will re-publish about June 15, 2018.

I apologize and hope you will return.  Daniel


This section of the website is the most important and relevant, to the times in which we live. It is written to be sent along to Church leaders, Pastors, Elders, and Church members (men and women) to awaken Believers as to the seriousness of what is happening, and the urgent need to return to God's ways not man's.


The Message Of Salvation and Christian Families are being redefined by our culture and fallen mainline Christian Denominations. What then shall we do as Christians, Christian Parents, Church Members, Pastors, and Church Leaders?


We must return to God's pattern for His Church which is - Jesus Christ and Born Again Believer having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit our True Teacher, Our True Guide, our True Comforter along with God's Written Word. This Dear Reader is The Church of God and The Kingdom Of God.


This then is the order of the Church and how Believers participate in the Great Commission. God, - our individual relationship to God, - our preordained responsibility of witnessing to our Families, - our Extended Families, - our Neighbors, - our Community, - our Country - the World. This Is God's plan for us (individually and collectively) to take part in the Great Commission. Consider this carefully.



Turning the hearts of the Fathers to the Children.


As we approach the end of the age the world’s secular and so called spiritual leaders “openly” war against God's Word causing much suffering. But know this those that accumulate great power and wealth  through lies, violence, deception, and murder deliberately turning men one against another are themselves deceived by the Prince of this world whom they have declared allegiance and relinquished their souls.  


The modern Church has entered into the period of time referred in Scriptures as The Great Falling Away. Departing from the plain teaching  of Jesus Christ Churches have embraced the world. They knowingly reject Jesus Christ and His message of repentance/salvation, and God’s Written Word.


Openly teaching false doctrines deceiving those earnestly seeking God, for which they shall be judged. In order to maintain followers and gain wealth they do not teach that true Born Again Believers have a Royal Priesthood and are themselves the Church Of God and they may commune with God through His Holy Spirit our True Teacher, Comforter and Guide as taught and promised by Jesus Christ and written in Scriptures. Does this mean there a no worthy churches. God forbid, but they are few and far between.


If you now belong to such a Church (Body of Believers with Christ as their leader) teaching God's Word book by book, chapter by chapter, line by line, precept by precept and holds true to the defining principles of the Christian Faith, continue with them. We need more of them. If you are in a God centered church please consider what is written below and what yet needs to be done. That being said such churches need to recognize and return to God's True Pattern for His Church, not man's.  


Scriptures tells us about man’s fallen churches in the latter days warning Believer to come out of her.

  

•    Man’s Churches have forsaken their first love. They have turned away from Jesus Christ the author of their salivation.

•    Man’s Churches follow the ways of Balaam and the Nicolaitans. They tolerate the immorality, perversion, and idolatry of Jezebel. They have embraced the ways of the world; have become compromised with worldly morality and pagan doctrines, idol worship, intermarriage with non-believers, false prophets, and sexual immorality.    

•    Man’s Churches are dead because they are without true faith. They proclaim they follow Jesus Christ but are without the Holy Spirit and blind.  

•    Man’s Churches are lukewarm, wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked. They are without conviction, have itchy ears, spiritually shallow, and will not repent. KJV: Revelation Chapters 3-4  


To all Believers, Pastors, Denominational Leaders, and Non-

Believers.


For Believers:

-Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. -Understand the pattern of the Early Church and the Priesthood of the Believer. -Apprehend and abide by God’s pattern for His Church and the Family. -Recognize your indebtedness to live and share the message of the Gospel.

 

For Pastors:

-Return to your first love sharing the message of Salvation through Jesus Christ. -Understand, teach, and establish the Priesthood of Believers. -Understand and fulfill you responsibility to protect and sustain Gods Families and yours. -Re-dedicate your life and build the “Church” using God's Pattern for His Church, not mans.

  

For Denominational Leaders:

-End the division of denominational-ism within the Body of Christ.  

Acknowledge that Believers are themselves the true “Living Church with Christ as their leader” and the Holy  Spirit is their true Comforter, Teacher and Guide including God's  Written Word....."not any religious organization, man, or mans  writings." -Recognize and sustain the Priesthood of Believers with its authority and responsibilities beginning with the Family as the Spiritual Leader of the Home. -Teach the Gospel as in the days of the early church with all sincerity, clarity, humility. Knowing you will one day be judged before the throne of God.


To all Christians:

Share the Good News of Jesus Christ and God's gift of Salvation sincerely and humbly. -Make plain the love and hope to be found in God’s Word and the understanding of being Born Again. -Instruct them to follow and trust in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit their true Teacher, Comforter and Guide including God's Written Word. Not popular charismatic ministers, pastors, spiritual fads, religions, so called spiritual organizations or man's teachings.  

Dear Reader, search the Scriptures regarding what has been presented thus far and ask yourself:   

Why are tens of thousands of churchgoers leaving the church in Western Nations?  

Why are tens of thousands coming to Christ in Foreign Nations each year?  

Why are thousands of pastors walking away from the church each year?  

Why has men's churches and there many denominations failed?  

Why do so man Christians fall for false doctrines and false teachers?  

Why has the Holy Spirit left man's churches?  

Why are Church Families failing?  

Why has the Church failed to protect the Family?  

What is the original pattern of Gods Church?  

What is the Priesthood of the Believer and what does it mean to those who truly follow Jesus Christ?  

The Holy Spirit is Gods gift to all Believers and is their true Comforter, Guide and Teacher along with God's Written Word.  

What about Families and the responsibility of husbands, wives, and children.  

Why are tens of thousands of churchgoers leaving the church in Western Nations each year

Why are tens of thousands coming to Christ in Foreign Nations each year?

Why are tens of thousands of pastors walking away from the church each year?

Why have man’s formulas for their many denominations failed? 

Why do so many Christians fall for false teachers and their doctrines?

Why has the Holy Spirit left man's churches?

Why are Church Families failing?


The Preeminence of Christ: 

"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For  by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent. For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all  things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood His cross." Colossians 1:15-20 “And He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those  who were near. For through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” Ephesians: 2:17-19 


What is God's will for His Church (Believers) in today's world? 

Study the Scriptures “prove all things holding fast that which is good’,

be not deceived, and be convinced yourself about these matters and their spiritual significance. Then armed with God’s truth and The Holy Spirit  our true Comforter, Teacher and Guide with the Written Word you may stand against the Prince of this present Age and his followers.

Then, when no longer deceived by the failings and heresies accepted within compromised Christianity do we then continue as in the past? God forbid. We have been admonished by God to flee Babylon so that we are not overcome by the deceptions which are intensifying throughout the world.


But where would God have us flee ?
Do we fabricate and piece together another man made denomination with self ordained institutionalized priest or pastors to promote yet another

Church?


Do we bow to a mega religion which morphed into some kind of hybrid spiritual philosophy, science based trans-humanism, gender neutral, progressive, all inclusive, emotion driven, there is no sin, truth is  relevant, right is wrong, technocracy, accept it or die Unified World  Religion Alliance, God forbid.


Dear Reader do you recall what occurred when Christ paid in full for our transgressions when he cried out “It is finished.” "After this Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, it is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." John 19:28-30 (KJV)


The Temple Vale ? 

"And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom."
What then is the meaning of the temple veil being torn in two ?
What message was given to Believer in Christ ?


In the Jewish temple the veil served as the barrier to the Holy of Holies where it was believed God's presence rested housed the Ark of the Covenant. Only the high priest could enter this area and then only one time each year to make atonement for the sins of Israel. Exodus 30:10.

First Kings 6:2 records that Solomon's temple was 30 cubits high. This would have been 45 feet tall. Note: The first century Jewish historian Josephus records that Herod extended the temple's height to 40 cubits high, about 60 feet tall. He also records that the veil was four inches thick.


Matthew 27:50-51 says, "And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom." Notice the details: (1) Jesus died. (2) The enormous 45 to 60-foot high four inch thick curtain was torn. (3) The tear was from top to bottom clearly indicating the destruction was not of man but truly of God. This connection between the death of Jesus and the torn veil is not just about God's power. It witnesses to us who Jesus Christ is, what the cross accomplished, and the access we now now have to God through Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 8:1-2 "Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high  priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister in the holy places,in the true tent that the Lord setup, not man." Jesus Himself now serves as our high priest. There is no longer a need for a Jewish high priest to stand before the Lord and make atonement for our sins. Jesus has provided for our atonement through His death on the cross.


In addition, the tearing of the veil also helped to mark the beginning of a new covenant. Hebrews 8:13 states, "In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away."


A powerful application of this change is described in Hebrews 4:14-16: "Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our  weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet  without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of  grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Instead of coming to a priest, we can directly and boldly come before God through Jesus Christ to receive mercy and grace. Jesus meets our needs and even identifies with our weaknesses. The tearing of the veil is profoundly significant and provides a pictorial foundation for how we can approach God today. God has torn down the barrier between Himself and us through the work of Jesus.​


Words of Wisdom:
"For whatsoever things were written in the past were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." Romans 15:4


COMMON SENSE AND WISDOM - THOSE WHO TRULY SEEK IT, WILL FIND IT.

"Open Your Bible and Know For Yourself." Words of Knowledge and Wisdom:  Proverbs Chapters 1 through 31 Human wisdom does not have all the answers: Ecclesiastes Chapters 1-12

  

​​​​​​​Where will we find spiritual strength for what is coming upon the earth ?
Return to Gods pattern for His Church which is: Jesus Christ and true Believers, having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our true Teacher, Comforter and Guide with God's Written Word.​



It's about God's Pattern for the Family.

The way ahead.


​​​​​​​“It’s not about man’s religion, Churches, or Denominations - it never was”.

God: Creator, Father, Law Giver, Savior, Teacher, Comforter and our Guide.
God: Established marriage between a man and women.
God: Established the Family, its sacredness and the sanctity of life.
God: Designated specific responsibilities and callings for Husbands, Wives, & Children.
God: Designated men to be the Spiritual Leader of the Family.


Dear Reader keep reading and you will soon understand why.

 
God: Established the Priesthood of Believers’.

The Church: Jesus Christ, and Born Again Believers having the indwelling  the Holy Spirit, our True Comforter, Teacher, and Guide.
The Church: The Family and Assembly of Fellow Believers.
The Church: Not about buildings, man’s priesthoods, or denominations.

What If:
- Pastors no longer have to neglect their own wives and children?
- Pastors no longer have to fear loosing their position as Pastor for preaching the truth even to their church members?
- Pastors no longer have to be concerned with raising more and more money for the Church?
- Pastors no longer have to babysit those who never grow spiritually?
- Pastors no longer have to become involved in “church politics”?
- Pastors no longer have to deal with are the seats comfy, preparing perfect
sermons to increase offerings, additional funding for building programs, daily expenses, worship music, counseling, parking lots, greeters, counseling church members, sports and activity programs, summer bible schools, hurt feelings, backbiting, building maintenance.....just to name a few things pastors are responsible for.
What If:
- Fathers were truly the spiritual leader of the Family as taught in Scriptures?
- Fathers provided for and protected their Families (spiritually and physically) cherishing their wives and children?
- Wives stood with their husbands co-equal in their responsibilities as ordained by God and taught in Scriptures?
- Wives and husband brought up their children as God instructed?

What If:
- Children absolutely knew their parents loved and cared for them?
- Children learned by the example of Godly parents?
- Children were taught to read and understand the Bible at an early age in the home, rather than from someone else?
- Children were instructed in the home how to discern truth and think for themselves.

(Think about how this would form bonds between family members.)

How can a pastor or minister with a family truly be effective managing all of the above?

​The short answer they cannot. Why?

Because it can only be achieved by following the pattern of Gods Church.​​

​​"Not Often, but every once in a while, God brings us to a major turning point, a great crossroads in our life. From that point we either go more and more toward a slow, lazy and useless Christian life, or we become more and more on fire, giving our utmost for His highest, our best for His glory." - Oswald Chambers​


God's Church is the people of God organically connected to God. At Pentecost, when the Spirit breathed upon God’s people, this organic connection came to life. Thus we see terms for the church like: ‘living church,’ ‘body of Christ,’ seed planted that produces fruit 30, 60, 100 fold.’

When church is understood this way, its development becomes less about planning ‘how to build’ and much more about learning to facilitate the  life cycle that is already inherent within it. The simple DNA of the living church is evident:


1. Intimacy with Christ. The abiding living relationship with God is at the core of our life with God and the life that grows out of the church, God’s people. Jesus did not invite us to follow a religion of rules, nor did he mandate an order of service or church structure to follow. He did ask us to follow him. Out of that flows all of the life, joy, and power that we need to live fully in him and for him.


2. Reaching out with love. The experience of being loved by the God of the universe produces an outward desire to love and reach others with the same Gospel love. This is not a project nor a program, but a way of life  that involves an outbreak of Jesus’ love toward others.


3. Disciple making as a lifestyle. This is not about what we have to give  to others, but it is about relationships in which we come alongside people while they discover that God speaks directly to them. We walk with them but the word and the Spirit of God become the teachers. The Bible, indeed, is far more powerful than we realize. It has the power to transform hearts and lives, all by itself, through the energizing of God’s Spirit.


4. Gathering simply and in a participatory manner. Gatherings are family based and allow every person to grow spiritually, care for one another, and exercise spiritual gifts. Healthy missional-family gatherings continue to encourage the upward, inward, outward processes of loving God, blessing one another, and reaching out to others. What we do see in Scripture are many different types of gatherings which took place frequently, naturally, and often spontaneously. They took place in normal, everyday settings and they fit into the rhythm of everyday life.


5. Empower others to go, reach, disciple, and gather. This is the function  of ‘leadership’ as it seeks to serve others who are becoming fruitful,  vibrant, and reproductive. Everything is given away: spiritual authority, recognition, encouragement, opportunities to minister and serve. This leader empowers others so well that his or her own ministry goes virtually unrecognized. Where does one begin? It is difficult to get away from the idea that there must be a one-two-three blueprint to  follow that will allow me to facilitate the growth of ‘a church.’ But it  is more about lifestyle than planning and more about listening to God  than following someone else’s map. Still, there is an intentionally that  can move us forward. These five rhythms become essential to discovering how God would have us walk with him in the growth of his church. There  are many tools and methods for walking out each of these rhythms  (perhaps a subject for another post), but through prayer and listening,  God is able to lead us to those tools and methods that will be best for our context.
Roger Thoman: The Simple Church Journal

​​​Knowing for yourself exist to encourage others to “know for themselves” by challenging truth seekers to think for themselves, to prayerfully search the scriptures, and to know, accept, and follow God, not men, not men’s priesthoods, not men’s denominations, or so called spiritual leaders or spiritual organizations, only God, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit our true Teacher Comforter and Guide.

Remember…God  "split the Vail in the Temple" and now we may go directly before God throne while we were yet not able to abide His glory but soon if you will have it, Gods lightning will "split the heavens" upon Messiah return and we shall be caught up to be with him as He brings peace to this troubled fallen world. Amen.


Not about religion, no money wanted, nothing to purchase, nothing to join;
only the challenge for others to seek and know Jesus Christ for themselves.

​​​​​​​​​To all Pastors and all Denominations: Begin teaching this is NOW!!


Fathers, it is an honor and your responsibility from God. Pray with those in your family together and with them individually.
Administer blessings for those in your family by the laying on of hands and baptize those in your family into the Body of Christ. What we now accept as Christianity is vastly different from what first  century Believers practiced and believed. Mans "Churches" have been instituted by men who "assumed to themselves authority" and "ordained one another" with their "priesthoods" to control others. Scriptures clearly teach the Church is: Jesus Christ, Believers, and their True Teacher, Comforter, and Guide, God's Holy Spirit!


"Why then do we go to a mere man, when we can go directly to God through His Son, our High Priest? We need to return to the pattern of the church as followed by first century Believers. ”​​

 

For centuries the dominating church growth models have been centered around activity driving attendance to a meeting inviting with the hope that as people enter the building and experience God through the church service having a rightly planned order of service the invited will come away having been impacted and return inviting their friends and family. Jesus was less concerned about inviting people to experience God through a meeting and more concerned about meeting them where they were as he and the disciples went along the way. Roger Thoman: The Simple Church Journal

Is there really a war against the family?


https://www.thetrumpet.com/article/6365.24.117.0/society/the-war-against-family

http://www.wnd.com/2016/03/feds-invite-parents-to-help-raise-their-children/

Wording in the government document was later modified but I have included this link, which clearly demonstrates how far they will go against the Family if they can get away with it.​

 

Who will bring about the change?​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

In the rather simple times in the 1950s, there was already a longing for a miracle worker (to bring peace to the world.​ NATO's  Paul Henri Spak said in 1957: "We want a man of sufficient stature to  hold the alliance of all people and lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him."

Modern education: The destruction of human individualism.

Gods faithful verses the World.

The modern Church:

"much of what is called Christianity today is not the Christianity of the New Testament. It is distinctly different. Jesus is not the fountainhead of modern Christianity. He is scarcely thought about. Christian preachers, Sunday school teachers, religious books, all without any apology patronize Jesus Christ and put Him on one side.

"We  have to learn that to stand true to Jesus Christ's point of view means  ostracism -- the ostracism that was brought on Him. Most of us know  nothing whatever about it. "The modern view looks upon human nature as  pathetic; men and women are poor ignorant babes in the wood who have  lost themselves. Jesus Christ's view is totally different. He does not  look on men and women as babes in the wood, but as sinners who need  saving and the modern mind detests His view.

"Our  Lord's teaching is based on something we violently hate, namely His  doctrine of sin; we do not believe it unless we have had a radical  dealing with God on the line of His teaching.

"Remember  that a disciple is committed to much more than belief in Jesus, he is  committed to His Lord's view of the world, of men, of God and of sin."   Oswald Chambers Daily Devotional Bible, p. 586

The True Church:

"Abide in Me, and I in you... for apart from Me you can do nothing." John 15:3-4
"The  Church is a separated band of people who are united to God by the  regenerating power of the Spirit, and the bedrock of membership in the  [true] Church is that we know who Jesus is by a personal revelation of  Him.  The indwelling Spirit is the supreme Guide, and He keeps us  absorbed with our Lord. [In contrast] the emphasis today is placed on  the furtherance of an organization [not on the will and purpose of our  Lord.] Oswald Chambers, The Best from all His Books, p. 49

The Test of Faithfulness:

"We know that all things work together for good to those who love God." Romans 8:28
 

"It  is only a faithful person who truly believes that God sovereignly  controls his circumstances. We take our circumstances for granted,  saying God is in control, but not really believing it acting as if the  things that happen were completely controlled by people.

To  be faithful in every circumstance means, that we have only one loyalty,  or object of our faith— the Lord Jesus Christ. God may cause our  circumstances to suddenly fall apart, which may bring the realization of  our unfaithfulness to Him for not recognizing that He had ordained the  situation. We never saw what He was trying to accomplish, and that exact  event will never be repeated in our life. This is where the test of our  faithfulness comes. If we will just learn to worship God even during  the difficult circumstances, He will change them for the better very  quickly if He so chooses.

"Being  faithful to Jesus Christ is the most difficult thing we try to do  today. We will be faithful to our work, to serving others, or to  anything else; just don’t ask us to be faithful to Jesus Christ. Many  Christians become very impatient when we talk about faithfulness to  Jesus. Our Lord is dethroned more deliberately by Christian workers than  by the world. We treat God as if He were a machine designed only to  bless us, and we think of Jesus as just another one of the workers.
 

"The  goal of faithfulness is not that we will do work for God, but that He  will be free to do His work through us. God calls us to His service and  places tremendous responsibilities on us. He expects no complaining on  our part and offers no explanation on His part. God wants to use us as  He used His own Son."  My Utmost for His Highest, December 18


Finding What Is Important:

"But  Peter and the other apostles answered and said: 'We ought to obey God  rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you  murdered by hanging on a tree. Him God has exalted to His right hand to  be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of  sins. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy  Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.” Acts 5:29-32
 

"Is Jesus Christ’s mind infallible, or is the modern Western mind infallible?
The  tendency abroad today is to think ourselves infallible, and the Bible a  jumble up of the most extraordinary stuff, good stuff, but we cannot be  expected to accept all its views. That means, we believe ourselves more  likely to be infallible than Jesus Christ. We would repudiate this  statement if made badly, but we all act as if it were true, we all take  for granted that Jesus Christ’s teachings are nonsense; we treat them  with respect and reverence, but we do not do anything else with them, we  do not carry them out.

"Today  we hold conferences and conventions and give reports and make our  programs. None of these things were in the life of Jesus, and yet every  minute of His life He realized that He was fulfilling the purpose of His  Father (see John 9:4).

"How  did He do it? By maintaining the one relationship, and it is that one  relationship He insists on in His disciples, and it is the one we have  lost in the rubbish of modern civilization. If we try and live the life  Jesus Christ lived, modern civilization will fling us out like waste  material; we are no good, we do not add anything to the hard cash of the  times we live in, and the sooner we are flung out the better."
-Oswald Chambers Daily Devotional Bible, p. 596


Things to consider:

It  is interesting that the further we distance ourselves from Gods pattern  for the His Church the more we are confused and society becomes  increasingly dis-functional. It is "historically" proven there are two  preeminent fundamental signs of a collapsing society; the destruction of  the family and the normalization and acceptance of sexual perversion.  (Now you know why government, education, social agencies, AND EVEN  CHURCHES are promoting and enforcing sexual perversion under pain of law  if you do not accept and comply.

What  we are witnessing in the world has not happened by chance. The Prince  of this world and his followers are having their way but there time is  short. The world is now awash in deceptions, lies, greed, violence,  moral decay, the destruction of Nations, leaders turning their own  citizens one against another using race, ethnic differences, economic  disparity, religion, political correctness, education, the political  system, etc. What a mess, what a mess, all because of our individual and  collective unregenerate human nature.

Dear  reader, do not be deceived or be drawn into this mess but rather look  to our Creator who (not sure exactly when) will return for the second  time or the first time, depending on your point of reference.

The  Messiah will set things right and establish peace to this dreary world.  Until then stand for that which is good in the eyes of our Creator. As  much as it is within you seek truth and love that you may be found doing  the right and honorable thing for yourself, your family, and others  seeing the hope of Christ within you (by your good deeds which do not  save) but are the fruit of your faith in Christ. Then they perchance  might seek and come to know Christ through your good works.

If  you do not believe in God or the need of a Redeemer and have chosen to  follow man’s many a philosophy or pagan religions consider the weight of  “karma” upon you? Ponder how many (millions) of lifetimes you will need  "by your own works” to overcome yourself into perfection? Do you really  believe you can do it "your way”.

God is not through with Israel and in-spite of their mistreatment many are turning to Messiah.

​​

It  is not scriptural and is morally wrong for Christians to blame Jews for  the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is also wrong for any Christian  church or church leaders to support such an accusation which was done in  the past and to this very day, unbelievable.

This has been deliberately condoned by corrupt governmental and religious leaders.

There  is a message here: If you or I where there, given our fallen human  nature we would have done the same. Their unregenerated human nature  rejected God as even now our unregenerated human nature rejects God.  Truly, we would have acted in the same manner. And let us not forget  that the only man having authority to approve capital punishment was an  unbelieving Roman Ruler who with Roman soldiers nailed Christ to the  cross.
 

Have  we not all at some point in our life by our thoughts, inaction or  actions rejected God? Yes. In doing so have we because of our sins  re-crucified Christ? Yes. Dear Believer let God deal with those who at  that moment in time did what they did. Let's look to ourselves and what  we did to nail Christ to the cross with our sins (even as Believers!)  and our need of mercy, forgiveness and salvation. Amen

Man's many Denominations and supposed authority:


Regarding  the many Denominations within Christianity. They are men following men  who having assumed to themselves authority ordained themselves  and others into their priesthoods and churches. They promote themselves  as having Divine authority over others, teaching we are to follow them,  their church, there ordinances and their doctrines.

The  division of the church into many hundreds (indeed thousands of  variations) of churches and denominations testifies to Christianity  apostasy which has caused much confusion.  Many have rejected Christ  because of the Churches history of un-biblical spiritual domination over  others and it's lust for wealth and power. Much more could be said here  but it is up to you to do more research yourselves.

“Now  this I say, that every one of you say I am of Paul; and I of Apollos;  and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified  for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I  baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius..z"

Pastors, ministers, seminaries, leaders, and theologians,tear down the walls of Denominations,

reject the coming false world religion and return to God's pattern for His Church.



Did  not our creator rent the Vail? Remember, remember, the Temple  Vail being torn from top to bottom by God signifying that each Believer  now and forever has access to the throne of God through Jesus Christ our  High Priest and Savior! Not by any man, priesthood, church or  denomination or spiritual organizations. Our eternal Hope and Salvation  is in God and God alone. Now consider: As God split the Vail in two from  the top down opening our way spiritually into Gods presence while we  are yet in the world. Just so lighting will part the heavens at the  coming of Messiah and Believers will be caught up to unite with Him.

“Verily, verily I say to you, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God….

Marvel not that I said unto thee, you must born again.”
 

”Believe  me, the hour will come when you shall neither in this mountain, nor at  Jerusalem (Temple or our Churches) worship the Father,

but  the hour comes and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the  Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship  Him.” A woman at the well: John 4: 19-26

The  promise of our personal relationship with Jesus: “And I will pray the  Father and He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with  you….even the spirit of truth….I will not leave you comfortless; I will  come to you…..because I live ye shall live also….ye shall know that I am  in my Father, and you in me, and I in you…..if a man love me, he will  keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John:14:5-26​​​


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The House Church Movement and the Family.

Christians are called to come out of Babylon.

Believers are admonished to separate themselves from mans religions as a the world political/religious/financial system

of which we have been forewarned which is now being assembled before our eyes.

The  House Church is what we are looking for especially those house churches  found in countries were Christianity is not tolerated and its members  are greatly persecuted. These are they who because of their life and  death decision to follow Christ rely only upon God, Gods written word,  and Gods Holy Spirit. They for the most part live in poverty with the  expectation that they and their families may be martyred at any time.  Under such conditions these churches assemble and meet as families and  with others sharing the message of Jesus Christ in their homes.

When  a house church grows those who have matured in Christ then begin their  own house church following the same pattern. This pattern is duplicated  establishing house churches from house to house, community to community,  city to city and beyond.

Hindrances within House Churches and the Church Planting movement:

Caution:  In gathering information on the House Church Movement it became evident  that some prominent individuals associated within the movement were  complicit in promoting doctrinal errors and false teaching found in main  line Churches, which they carried into the house church movement. 

Financial Problems in the Church Planting Movement.

“Church  planters don’t just feel insecure—many are financially insecure. For  the most part, planters’ assessments line up with their strained  financial reality. If anything startup leaders’ perceptions are more  positive than one might expect, given that three out of five live on a  household income lower than the national average. Thirty-nine percent  bring in between $35,000 and $50,000 per year, while one in five reports  an annual household income of less than $35,000 (21%). In most states,  an income of $31,525 or less qualifies a family for food stamps. Yet  resource constraints take a toll on church planters beyond just  financial burdens. One-third of startup leaders admit they have  considered quitting ministry because of financial strain (33%). This  admission perhaps not surprisingly, is most common among pastors in the  lower income bracket (47%). Further and more worrisome, is the fact that  “a similar proportions of leaders report strains on their marriage” as a  result of the financial stresses associated with church planting (35%).  Those in the lower income bracket—and those who assess their personal  financial situation as surviving or struggling —are most at risk.” From  the Article: Church Planters and the Cost of Starting a Church April 26,  2016

Western  style business promotions of House Churches compared with House  Churches where Christians are subject to violence and persecution.

*In the West there is the ongoing need of significant financing and money raising.

*The negative western business model for the promotion of the house church movement.

*Excessive money raising, sale of books, lesson plans, study aids, Cd's, various certified training, etc.

*Prominent individuals are complicit in promoting doctrinal errors and false teaching within the House Church Movement.

Such  negative issues are eliminated or greatly curtailed in home churches  where Christians are persecuted, suffer, and die for their faith. The  focus for these Believers (and should be for us) is to survive  spiritually and physically, as individuals, families, and communities.  In this environment there is no room for "playing church", life is taken  seriously and the Good News of Gods Salvation gives hope and a reason  to carry on. The Church is: God, the  message of salvation through Jesus Christ and Believers having the  indwelling of Gods Holy Spirit our true Teacher, our Comforter, our  Guide and Gods Written Word.

The  resources below provide provide clear understanding regarding the need  for House Churches, how to participate in a House Church, and how to  start a House Church. I encourage all in house church's and those  considering such to be alert, pray, prove all things, base everything on  God’s Word, and not forsake those in traditional churches who are under  spiritual attack.  Seek to open their understanding to Gods pattern for  His church best exemplified as House Churches, the church being: Jesus  Christ and His true Believers having the indwelling of God’s Holy  Spirit, our true Teacher, Comforter, and Guide”.  Peace in Christ to all: Daniel​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​It  is time to return the Church to its original pattern revealed in  Scriptures followed by first century Believers.

Jesus Christ and Believers. That is the Church. It’s not about Religion it never was.


 

Overview:   In the beginning God personally interacted with mankind upon the earth  until the fall. Over time mankind having freewill rejected Gods  fellowship and His plan. Then came the age of Kings and man’s  Governments and they ruled over one another choosing not to follow their  Creator.

Nevertheless God  after mans fall in His infinite wisdom interceded with those whom He  choose as Patriarchs and Prophets establishing His Laws, His People, and  His Nation. To witness of Himself until His coming as Messiah the hope  of mankind. All of which was foreknown before the earth was formed and  before there were stars in the heavens.

As  was foretold Messiah came and walked upon the earth teaching, healing  and proclaiming the mind, heart and will of God for “all mankind.” This  was confirmed by many signs and wonders witnessing of God’s love, glory  and power. Providing salvation to mankind through faith in His son Jesus  Christ by who upon repentance of our sins we are forgiven and Born  Again justified and adopted as Sons and Daughters of the Living God.

In  the beginning The Apostles and those who followed Christ lived and  worshiped as Believers (The Church) in their houses as a family, when  associating with others, and assembled in open fields or temporary  building. In this manner the message of Jesus Christ was intimately  shared within families, the extended family, with other Believers,  friends, and non-believers. The “Church” multiplied from house to house,  community to community, city to city, and beyond.

This  is the distinguishing pattern of the Early Church and how Believers  shared the message of Salvation and Gods plan for mankind. The Church is  not a building or place. It’s the living body of individual Believers  united in Jesus Christ. Dear Reader this is God’s way not man’s way.  Even the calling and positions of early church leaders was to soon give  way upon the tearing of the temple vale signifying that mankind was now  able to come to the throne of God without the need of a priest.  (Important: See Post three - Temple Vale).

Consider:  God new that within a short time the pattern for His Church would be  altered and men would fabricate a church after their own ways which we  still have today.

Rather  than follow the Creators pattern men took upon themselves to establish  “Mans Religion/Churches”. Within this “redefined” Church men  gave themselves Divine Authority establishing “men’s priesthoods” from  which came various denominations also claiming authority with  their priesthood’s also asserting “their Divine calling” for saving  souls.

It  is with great sadness to learn there was a time Scriptures containing  the teachings of Jesus Christ were deliberately withheld from the  people. If a common man or woman were found reading or possessing a  Bible they were severely punished and were subject to being executed by  "the Christians church". 

Ponder  this: The message of Jesus Christs Redemption and Salvation was  deliberately withheld from those who Christ died by man’s corrupt  church. Rather It was taught Salvation was through men’s churches, men’s  priesthood’s, men’s traditions and “they” were the only way to  salvation. This man church and its offspring man churches claimed and  exercised a supposed authority to save or eternally damn the souls of  men, women, and children if they did not comply to their heresies, laws,  and false teachings which regrettably continues today.

From  that time to this present age Kings, Tyrants, Governments and those in  league with them in spite of their differences joined with men’s  Churches to reign over mankind. Subjugating men’s bodies (labor/energy)  and men’s souls (spirit/mind) thereby acquiring to themselves great  wealth and power. But God in His infinite wisdom and mercy interceded by  those He chose to witness for Him throughout the centuries along with  all those who truly sought Him and believed in their hearts. Saving as  many as He choose making known His Eternal Grace, Wisdom, Power and  Glory.  Which is to say, all sincere and earnest Believers (God knows  their hearts/spirits) have access to His Plan of Salvation.

Now  Dear Reader as we approach the end of the age the world’s secular and  so called spiritual leaders “openly” war against God causing much  suffering. But know this those that accumulate great power and wealth  through lies, violence, deception, and murder deliberately turning men  one against another are themselves deceived by the Prince of this world  whom they have declared allegiance and relinquished their souls.
 

The  modern Church has entered into the period of time referred in  Scriptures as The Great Falling Away. Departing from the plain teaching  of Jesus Christ Churches have embraced the world. They knowingly reject  Jesus Christ and His message of repentance/salvation, and God’s Written  Word. Openly teaching false doctrines deceiving those earnestly seeking  God, for which they shall be judged. In order to maintain followers and  gain wealth they do not teach that true Born Again Believers have a  Royal Priesthood and are themselves the Church Of God and they may  commune with God through His Holy Spirit our True Teacher, Comforter and  Guide as taught and promised by Jesus Christ and written in Scriptures.

 Does  this mean there a no worthy churches. God forbid, but they are few and  far between. If you now belong to such a Church (Body of Believers with  Christ as their leader) that teaches Gods Word book by book, chapter by  chapter, line by line, precept by precept and holds true to the defining  principals of the Christian Faith, continue with them. We need more of  them. If you are in a God centered church please consider what is  written below and what yet needs to be done. That being said such  churches need to recognize and return to Gods True Pattern for His  Church, not man's.

Scriptures tells us about man’s fallen churches in the latter days warning Believer to come out of her.

•    Man’s Churches have forsaken their first love.
     They have turned away from Jesus Christ the author of their salivation.

•    Man’s Churches follow the ways of Balaam and the Nicolaitans.
     They tolerate the immorality, perversion, and idolatry of Jezebel.
     They have embraced the ways of the world; have become compromised with worldly morality and pagan doctrines, idol worship,

      intermarriage with non-believers, false prophets, and sexual immorality. 

•    Man’s Churches are dead because they are without true faith.
     They proclaim they follow Jesus Christ but are without the Holy Spirit and blind.

•    Man’s Churches are lukewarm, wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.

     They are without conviction, have itchy ears, spiritually shallow, and will not repent.
      KJV: Revelation Chapters 3-4

To all Believers, Pastors, Denominational Leaders, and Non-Believers.

For Believers:
-Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
-Understand the pattern of the Early Church and the Priesthood of the Believer.
-Apprehend and abide by God’s pattern for His Church and the Family.
-Recognize your indebtedness to live and share the message of the Gospel.

For Pastors:
-Return to your first love sharing the message of Salvation through Jesus Christ.
-Understand, teach, and establish the Priesthood of Believers.
-Understand and fulfill you responsibility to protect and sustain Gods Families and yours.
-Re-dedicate your life and build the “Church” using God's Pattern for His Church, not mans.

For Denominational Leaders:
-End the division of denominational-ism within the Body of Christ.

 Acknowledge that Believers are themselves the true “Living Church with Christ as their leader” and the
 Holy  Spirit is their true Comforter, Teacher and Guide including God's  Written Word....."not any religious organization, man, or mans  writings."
-Recognize and sustain the Priesthood of Believers with  its authority and responsibilities beginning with the Family as the  Spiritual Leader of the Home. 
-Teach the Gospel as in the days of the early church with all sincerity, clarity, humility. Knowing you will one day be judged before the throne of God.

Believers For Non-Believers:
-With humility and sincerity share the Good News of Jesus Christ and Gods gift of Salvation.
-Make plain the love and hope to be found in God’s Word and the understanding of being Born Again.
-Instruct  them to follow and trust in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit their true  Teacher, Comforter and Guide including the God's

  Written Word. Not popular ministers, pastors, spiritual fads, religions, so called spiritual organizations or man's teachings.

Dear Reader, search the Scriptures regarding what has been presented thus far and be prepared for the following:

Why are tens of thousands of churchgoers leaving the church in Western Nations?

Why are tens of thousands coming to Christ in Foreign Nations each year?

Why are tens of thousands of pastors walking away from the church each year?

Why has men's churches and there many denominations failed?

Why do so man Christians fall for false doctrines and false teachers?

Why has the Holy Spirit left man's churches?

Why are Church Families failing?

Why has the Church failed to protect the Family?

What is the original pattern of Gods Church?

What is the Priesthood of the Believer and what does it mean to those who truly follow Jesus Christ?

The Holy Spirit is Gods gift to all Believers and is their true Comforter, Guide and Teacher along with God's Written Word.

What about Families and the responsibility of husbands, wives, and children.

How did original Believers share Gods word?

What is God's will for His Church of Believers in today's world?

Scriptures forewarned that in the latter days Christians were to "come out of" the Worlds Babylon Church System.​​

A good example of the push toward "unity" and bringing religions together is in the Chrislam movement.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​When and why it will happen?………..it has already begun.


There  comes a time when societies and cultures cross a line leading to  recklessness, extravagance, immorality, wickedness, shamelessness,  ending in the abandonment of both morals and God. History demonstrates  that short term solutions resolved through violence work for a time,  paid for by the suffering of common citizens then the cycle begins  again.

Fallen human nature is the problem and nothing will change until our hearts are transformed.

War on Christians throughout the world:

An end times chart with details showing final world events as we approach the end of the age:

http://www.crossroad.to/charts/end-times.htm

"Therefore  'Come out from among them and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Do not  touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to  you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,' says the Lord Almighty.”

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

"Do not be conformed to this world, Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2, 9.

History  demonstrates when any Nation or Society loses its moral underpinnings  it's on the way to anarchy. It’s just a matter of time and time is  running out for this present world. A better world cannot arise out of  the failures of the past by using the same man centered mechanisms,  processes, lies, deceptions, pride, wealth, consolidation of power,  greed, and premeditated wars, etc., to bring about change. Pray for  leaders and people of all Nations around the world.

We  are now in the Spiritual battle of which we have been forewarned. At  this critical time in history truth, clarity, reliability, and  consistency regarding Christianity is essential. We must not be part of  the half-truths and outright deceptions promoted by so called Christian  churches where Pastors (even from Christian seminaries) do not believe  or teach fundamental Christian principles openly deny the Divinity of  Christ.

The "Prince of this world" is gathering his followers and has openly stated his goals.

One of "his" most ardent followers wrote the following....

“We  (those who follow evil) tolerate violence, do not punish wrong doers,  participate in nation building and undeclared wars, allow illegals to  over-run us, overlook the corruption in politics, religion, business,  the education system, news media, etc. and trash those who are seeking  to live descent lives. We condone perversion, accept evil as good and  define that which is good and honorable as intolerant. But don't worry  it’s all being done for a greater good."

"From  the tree of deception and lawlessness a new world of peace and  tranquility will arise like the Phoenix guided by the Prince of this  world, who truly would not lie?  “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole  of the law.”

​Allister Crowley, Satanic priest

Easter  like Christmas and other non-Biblical "holidays" or observances need to  be discontinued by those who claim to follow Jesus Christ. You may view  this as harsh but consider the many deceptions, half-truths, lies,  false doctrines, false worship of saints, Mary worshiped as cosaviour,  watered down ethics, and all manner of abominable things being taught  within Christian Churches. Isn’t it time to stop? How can we witness to  the word that we follow “truth” (Jesus Christ declared I am the Truth)  while we continue to observe doctrines founded on Paganism?  Seriously,  are we so spiritually deficient we continue to justify such paganism  with childish emotions and faulty reasoning rather than taking a stand  for spiritual truth?

The  problem facing Christian "Churches"/Religion/Denominations" over the  centuries is that they removed themselves from Gods pattern for His  Church.

Having  left the pattern of the church practiced by original first century  Christianity has become a concoction of man’s church organizations,  man’s priesthoods, and man’s philosophies joined at the hip with  governments and the elite to control whom they wish to dominate. The  various "religions/philosophies" of the world and Christian  Denominational Religions (including RCC Universal Church) are only a dim  shadow of what could be if Gods pattern for His Church were followed.

First  century "Believers" had it right. The church is: Jesus Christ and those  who truly follow Him "Believers"...that is the "Assembly" which by the  way was what it was called before it was altered. It never was about the  construction massive edifices, buildings to worship in, basketball  courts, bingo, parking lots, ego driven ministers, bake sales, etc., or  men's presumed priesthoods. For over Fifteen Hundred plus years the  simple gospel of repentance and salvation through Jesus Christ was  deliberately kept from common people who were deceived by men's supposed  religions that claimed authority to save or damn to eternal hell,  anyone who did not agree and follow them.

It  was a mess then and it's still a mess with so called Christian Churches  openly teaching and accepting false doctrines, denying basic  fundamental beliefs, and allowing paganism and perversions within their ranks as forewarned in Scriptures.

​​

​​​Study  Gods Written Word relying upon your True Teacher and Comforter, His  Holy Spirit who will enlighten and Guide you in all things. And  remember...

"Fear (having  the understanding and awareness of gods eternal majesty and power) is  the beginning of wisdom and love cast out all fear."


The solution:

Timothy 2:

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Philippians 2:12

Wherefore,  my beloved as ye have obeyed not as in my presence but now much more in  my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Colossians 2:16

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of any holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:

Hebrews Chapter 6

Therefore  leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto  perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead  works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of  laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal  judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. 

God  is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son  Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our  Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing and that there be no  divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the  same mind and in the same judgment.
For it hath been declared unto me  of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that  there are contentions among you.

Now  this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of  Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul  crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God  that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; lest any should say  that I had baptized in mine own name. And I baptized also the household  of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

For  Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with  wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but  unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
For it is written, I  will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the  understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe?  Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the  wisdom of this world?

For  after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it  pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we  preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the  Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and  Greeks, Christ the power of  God, and the wisdom of God​​

Gods true pattern for His Church.

The Church: Jesus Christ, Born Again Believers having
Gods Holy Spirit, our true Teacher, Comforter, and Guide.

God establishes His Church:
God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit
sharing Gods message and plan to mankind.

Jesus Christ is born and begins His ministry

fulfilling those things that were written of Him in Torah and Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.

The Gospel of Repentance and Salvation is proclaimed to

mankind: We are saved by faith through Jesus Christ,

 are Born Again, receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,

and are adoption as Sons and Daughters into the Kingdom of God.

The early Church begins,
Christ calls his apostles,
The Gospel is preached by the Apostles (men who actually new and walked with Christ),
The priesthood of Believers established,
Churches are in Believer’s homes (families) the corner stone being Jesus Christ and the families of Believers.

Believes grow in the gospel teaching their children and on another.
Men are the spiritual leader in the home
Gospel taught and lived in the home.
Fathers teach, bless, and baptize their wife and children.
Families observe the lords supper in the home.
Families share the Gospel in their daily lives associating with others.
Others accepting Christ then duplicate what they have experience with others.
Believers’ begin sharing the Good News, house to house, community to community, region to region into the known world.

Believers  take care of their families in sickness, in health, and as they advance  in age...and come together (as an Assembly - group) to do the same for  fellow Believers and others.

Believers teach, help, and assist family members (and others) to become self sufficient and not to be a burden on others.

Much  more can be said here but I leave it up to you Dear Reader to continue  the ways the Family and others can benefit when God's Church is lived.

Jesus Christ dies for the sins of the world.

Apostles not understanding scatter when Christ is though dead.
The  Temple Vail is torn (by God) from the top to the bottom signifying that  we may approach God ourselves without the need of Priest, Ceremonies,  or Temples.

From the beginning starting with Adam the Patriarchs,  Prophets, Laws, Priest, purification ceremonies and sin sacrifices all  testified and pointed to the coming of Messiah, Jesus Christ who would  take away the sins of the World.

The old covenant with its many  purification ceremonies, sin sacrifices, temples, and priesthoods is now  fulfilled in Christ, our New Living Covenant.

Apostles then gathered after the resurrected by Christ,
Receive final instructions,
Apostles boldly teach throughout the world,
Two were replaced by who had known Christ while He walked upon the earth,
Apostles martyred leaving the Priesthood of believers and church houses,
First century Believers’ house churches go underground,
Wolves enter the church and the church devolves,
Generations pass,
Men wax worse and worse,

We now enter the end of the church age and have been warned to flee mans godless churches and the coming one world religion.

The last Reformation     Revival     The Restoration Of All Things.

Returning to the Original Pattern of the Church.

A message to Christians, Pastors, and all Denominations.

Part 3

​In  (Part 2) we provided links with resources to define and confirm serious  problems within modern Christianity. If after researching the links you  are not fully persuaded of the necessity of questioning what now is  promoted and accepted as Christian Churches and Christian teachings I  strongly encourage you to continue your own research so that you will  not be uninformed about these matters and the perilous spiritual  consequences for individuals, families, nations and the world.

Study  the Scriptures “prove all things holding fast that which is good’, be  not deceived, and be convinced yourself about these matters and their  spiritual significance. Then armed with God’s truth and The Holy Spirit  (our true Comforter, Teacher and Guide  with the Written Word) you  may stand against the Prince of this present Age and his followers.

Then,  when no longer deceived by the failings and heresies accepted within  compromised Christianity do we continue as in the past? God forbid. We  have been admonished by God to flee Babylon so that we are not overcome  by the deceptions which are intensifying throughout the world.

But where would God have us flee ?

Do  we fabricate and piece together another man made denomination with  self-ordained institutionalized priest or pastors to promote yet another  Church?

Do  we bow to a mega religion which morphed into some kind of hybrid  spiritual philosophy,  science based trans-humanism, gender neutral,  progressive, all inclusive, emotion driven, there is no sin, truth is  relevant, right is wrong, technocracy, accept it or die Unified World  Religion Alliance, God forbid.

Dear  Reader do you recall what occurred when Christ paid in full for our  transgressions when he cried out “It is finished.” "After this Jesus  knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might  be fulfilled, said, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of  vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop,  and put it to his mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar,  he said, it is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."  John 19:28-30 (KJV)

The Temple Vale ? 

"And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom."

What then is the meaning of the temple veil being torn in two ?

What message was given to Believer in Christ ?

 


In  the Jewish temple the veil served as the barrier to the Holy of Hollies  where it was believed God's presence rested housed the Ark of the  Covenant. Only the high priest could enter this area and then only one  time each year to make atonement for the sins of Israel (Exodus 30:10).

First  Kings 6:2 records that Solomon's temple was 30 cubits high. This would  have been 45 feet tall. Note: The first century Jewish historian  Josephus records that Herod extended the temple's height to 40 cubits  high, about 60 feet tall. He also records that the veil was four inches  thick.

Matthew  27:50-51 says, "And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded  up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in  two from top to bottom." Notice the details: (1) Jesus died. (2) The  enormous 45 to 60-foot high four inch thick curtain was torn. (3) The  tear was from top to bottom clearly indicating the destruction was not  of man but truly of God.

This  connection between the death of Jesus and the torn veil is not just  about God's power. It witnesses to us who Jesus Christ is, what the  cross accomplished, and the access we now now have to God through Jesus  Christ.

Hebrews 8:1-2  "Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high  priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty  in heaven, a minister in the holy places, in the true tent that the  Lord set up, not man." Jesus Himself now serves as our high priest.  There is no longer a need for a Jewish high priest to stand before the  Lord and make atonement for our sins. Jesus has provided for our  atonement through His death on the cross.

In  addition, the tearing of the veil also helped to mark the beginning of a  new covenant. Hebrews 8:13 states, "In speaking of a new covenant, he  makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing  old is ready to vanish away."

A  powerful application of this change is described in Hebrews 4:14-16:  "Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the  heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we  do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our  weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet  without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of  grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of  need." Instead of coming to a priest, we can directly and boldly come  before God through Jesus Christ to receive mercy and grace. Jesus meets  our needs and even identifies with our weaknesses. The tearing of the  veil is profoundly significant and provides a pictorial foundation for  how we can approach God today. God has torn down the barrier between  Himself and us through the work of Jesus.​  http://compellingtruth.org

​​​​​​​​​The Plan to Rule The World

​​​​​Where will we find spiritual strength for what is coming upon the earth ?
Return to Gods pattern for His Church which is: Jesus Christ and true Believers,
 having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our true Teacher, Comforter and Guide with God's Written Word.​

​"The  False Prophet will have a religion without a cross…..A religion to  destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church  (the Catholic Church) will be one. And the False Prophet will create the  other. The false church will be worldly ecumenical, and global. It will  be a loose federation of churches, a religion forming some type of  global association.

A  world parliament of churches emptied of all divine content and will be  the mystical body of the Antichrist. The mystical body on earth today  will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan  will recruit him from among our bishops.”

Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Roman Catholic Church) on “The False Prophet Subverting The “Church”:

NOTE TO OTHER DENOMINATIONS AND BELIEVERS:
Yes  even some in the RCC (and other churches) have awakened and are looking  beyond Denominations to Jesus Christ….Where shall they flee?

Dear Reader:

Post 1 and 2 provide an overview of the Church and where it is going.

Posts 3 and 4 specifically relate to the topic of - God's pattern for His Church.

Conspiracies and Apostasy:


http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/006/conspiracy2.htm

http://www.crossroad.to/News/apostasy.html


After  conversion and baptism the father is the Spiritual Leader of the home  and is responsible before God for teaching, baptizing, praying with, and  blessing members of this family and his extended family. That is God's  pattern for His Church.



​​​​​​​​​​

Man’s self-defined churches.

Churches established by men began after
the Ascension of Jesus Christ
and death of His Apostles.

Consider the following:

Except  for two men who were able to meet the condition of actually being with  Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry no other Apostles were  appointed to the Church after the Apostles were martyred.

After  Christ return into the heavens as forewarned first century Believers  experienced tremendous persecution throughout the known world. They were  hatred and persecuted for their faith in Christ, beaten, lived in  poverty, forced to live in hiding and put to death.  

There are  no scriptural references that inform us Christ or His Apostles  instructed Believers to collect and set aside finances to construct  church building, temple, synagogue, or any religious structure to  worship in. This would beyond their ability given the persecution they  were suffering.

Then men from various backgrounds, opinions, and  beliefs (many having their own agendas) meet in order to establish what  over time, would become man’s churches for over a thousand years to this  present day.

Over time and what is historically referred to “as  the dark ages” the sublime message of Jesus Christ of God’s love and  redemption, was withheld from the people. What was accepted as the  Church (man’s church) was a corrupt, twisted, religious organization  which existed until the Reformation. It was not until the Reformation  that the light of God’s word again penetrated the  darkness....“Scriptures only and Salvation by Grace alone.”   

From  this background we now have inherited various Christian Denominations  and thousands of so called Christian non-Denominational churches of  every strip, color, and flavor, a literal plethora (overabundance) of so  called Christian churches, having the following in common to one degree  or another: exalted spiritual leaders with titles such President,  Prophet, Pope, etc. assuming Divine authority and the right to rule over  others.

They assume priesthoods (divine authority) for  themselves or derived them from others who ordain them, forming a clergy  with pastors, ministers, etc. for their particular denomination or  tribe.

They say they believe the Bible but preach and teach their  own doctrines, leaving out others, re-interpret others or deliberately  teach falls doctrines, for their own gain and power. Living lavishly off  the donation of others including the very poor.

They hold they have the authority to baptize, bless, and hold communion.

They gather finances (many in the millions) for purchasing land and the construction of Churches.

In addition to observing the Sabbath mans church is involved in many areas:

Pastors prepare sermons,

councils others,

visits the sick,

visits those with spiritual needs,

interact with leaders in the community and others,

meets with Elders to oversee church finances,

resolves conflicts within the congregation,

addresses complaints,

manage financial issues,

plan and budgets yearly operating expenses,

provides staffing for daily maintenance of the church,

provides for cleaning of church property,

and paying utilities, etc.   

And……

Support missionary programs
 

Provide church greeters,
 

Parking lot attendants,

Organizing and supervising the teaching of investigators,

Organizing and supervising the teaching of new believers,

Organizing and supervising the Teaching of men’s Bible classes,

Organizing and supervising the teaching of women's bible classes,

Organizing and supervising teenage bible Classes,
 

Organizing and supervising children's bible classes,

Men’s attendance at weekly meetings,

Women’s attendance at weekly meetings,

Establish Worship Teams,

Support and attend summer programs and bible schools,
 

Attend and participate in Holiday Church programs,

Attend Regional Church meetings,

Attend and participate in extra-curricular sports and outings,

Attend Christian music concerts and dances,

 Staff the church library,

 Support bake or craft sales to raise funds,

 Support sales of books, cd’s, self-help manuals, and alike.

 NOTE: This is just a partial list.

 Oh...let's  not forget those attending church are paying for the building mortgage,  insurance, upkeep, pastors wages, and all those special programs and  missionary programs...to name a few.

     Those paying for all the above are mostly families where both parents  work, children are sent to daycare, a baby sitters, or sent to school,  and some are latch doors kids (kids that come home to empty houses until  the parents get off work). This is not Gods way.

    Remember  the Pastor also needs to be a loving husband and father providing for,  raising, teaching, and protecting his family spiritually, emotionally,  and physically as God would have us do.


     Are we surprised that pastors who truly felt called to the ministry  leave discouraged within a few years? And in many instances the same  applies for church members who leave.


   Why?

Because they came to recognize and understand something is wrong..…very wrong.....that something being.....

IT'S NOT GOD'S CHURCH.

It  is time for families to be reunited in Jesus Christ as God intended.  Man's self-established churches (because of ignorance or intention)  cannot continue using Gods Families to be exploited, socialized into  oblivion, driven into collective servitude (spiritual slavery)  blindly  serving man's churches not God's Church.




​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​WHO THAN SHALL WE FOLLOW?

"And  they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in  the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them,  'Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to  God, you judge. We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and  heard. "So when they had further threatened them, they let them go,  finding no way of punishing them, because of the people, since they all  glorified God for what had been done."  Acts 4:18-21

Man's Church's are divided

They held a meeting (see picture above) and decided we all worship the same God.

Dear Reader do you now understand the seriousness of the problem?

Will you follow apostates and pagans or Jesus Christ?

1 Corinthians Chapter 1 KJV Bible

Paul  called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and  Sosthenes our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to  them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all  that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both  theirs and ours:

Grace  be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus  Christ. I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which  is given you by Jesus Christ; .by whom ye were called unto the  fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Now  I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye  all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you; but  that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same  judgment. For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them  which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.  Now this I say, that every one of you who say, I am of Paul; and I of  Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul  crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God  that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; Lest any should say  that I had baptized in mine own name.

And  I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether  I baptized any other. For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach  the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be  made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that  perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring  to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

Where  is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world?  Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in  the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by  the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews  require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ  crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks  foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,  Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness  of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the  flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

But  God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;  and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things  which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are  despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to  naught things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But  of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and  righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That according as it  is written, He that glorifies, let him glory in the Lord."

How  are we  able know  Christianity  is  the  one  true  world  view?     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWY-6xBA0Pk


"you  shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you  from the peoples, that you should be Mine." Leviticus 20:26
"Do not  be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has  righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with  darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a  believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God  with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.

As  God has said: 'I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be  their God, and they shall be My people.' Therefore 'Come out from among  them and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Do not touch what is unclean, and  I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons  and daughters,' says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Here are resources for understanding and starting a Home Church.​​​​

It  is important to understand that prior   to 321 A.D. Christian Believers  had multiplied from a few thousands to many millions of Believers  without mans self ordained priesthoods, self-appointed authority,  monasteries, seminaries, or massive church buildings which required a  great deal of money and years of labor to construct.

Then  why did churches change from Gods pattern (the house church) to  multi-million dollar denominational/non-denominational churches with  their supposed priesthoods, conflicting teachings, and expensive palaces  of worship? It began in 321 A.D. with Roman Emperor Constantine who  along with others re-defined Christianity from which we have inherited  modern day Christina Church.

Scriptures  plainly teach us Gods pattern for His Church and how Believers shared  the Message of Salvation person to person, family to family, town to  town, community to community, Nation to Nation, and the World. Dear Reader this is the Church that tyrants and evil men fear because they cannot themselves control or rule over them.

Acts 8:2-4 King James Version KJV
2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
3 As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.
4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

Acts 28:29-31 King James Version KJV
29 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.
30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,
31 Preaching  the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord  Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

Romans 16:4-6 KJV
4 Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.
5 Likewise  great the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved  Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.
6 Greet Mary, who bestowed much labour on us.

1 Corinthians 16:18-20 KJV
18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.
19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
20 All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.

Colossians 4:14-16 KJV
14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.
15 Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house.
16 And  when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the  church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from  Laodicea.

Philemon 1-3 AMP
1 Paul, a prisoner [for the sake] of Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed), and our brother Timothy,
To Philemon our dearly beloved friend and fellow worker,
2 and  to [your wife] Apphia our sister, and to Archippus our fellow soldier  [in ministry], and to the church that meets in your [c]house:
3 Grace to you and peace [inner calm and spiritual well-being] from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Footnotes:
1. Perhaps the son of Philemon and Apphia.
2. Philemon was responsible to see that this letter was shared with his fellow Colossian believers.
3. Prior to the third century a.d. churches customarily met in private homes.

Important:

There are many resources regarding House/Home Churches but not all can be recommended.

I've tried to provide several sites that appear to be grounded and true to Scriptures.

Remember your Salvation is between you and God, not any man, church, spiritual organization or philosophy.

Keep it simple in Christ. Avoid those who seek to dominate, control, or sell their many books/programs/etc.

May Gods Spirit guide and be with you until we meet in our Fathers House to dwell with Him throughout eternity.

Something To Consider:

Recently a popular radio ministry had so many people expressing their hopelessness

because of what is happening in the world and economy they are now offering a book about "Hope" for sale.

     Ask yourself, would it not be better for Christians to open their  Concordance to "Hope" (or any other subject for that matter)

and  then read from the Bible what Scriptures actually teach about hope? In  both the Old and New Testament "especially" what Christ taught

about  hope recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? After all the author of  the book for sale did exactly that...before writing the book.

     Have a Bible with the words in Christ "in red" and whenever you have  question or want to know what Christ would do prayerfully meditate

upon  what Christ spoke and taught about it before going anywhere else.  Remember the Church is Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers

having  the indwelling of the Holy Spirit our true Teacher, Comforter, and  Guide along with Gods Word to illuminate our spirit and minds.

There will be obstacles. 


- The pace and demands of modern society works against the family.
-  Religion does not teach the true pattern of Gods church and the father  as the true spiritual leader of the home as given in Scriptures.

- Church (leaders and church goers) have drifted so far from Gods Pattern For His Church they may rebel against it.
-  Not many Pastor, Priest, Seminaries, and Theologians will easily  relinquish their assumed priesthoods and spiritual authority over  others.
- The Prince of this world is responsible (but we also are not without blame) in not following Gods pattern for his Church.

- Now more than ever the Prince of this world seeks to lead us away from God.

Remember "in Christ all things are possible".​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​The last Reformation     Revival     The Restoration Of All Things.

Returning to the original pattern of the Church, a message to

Christians, Pastors and all Denominations.

Part 4

Note:
Links  are given from various resources to expand upon what is written. Access  links as you read the post then depending upon your familiarity with  the subject decide to continue reading or save it for later.

There are some charts you may wish to save.

Dear Readers:

 I  realize what I am writing regarding fallen Christianity will be viewed  as harsh. Please remember I am referring to those who over the centuries  entered into the church as wolves in sheep's clothing . They are  responsible for the lies, false doctrine, and much suffering and death  willfully deceiving believers in order to satisfy their greed and lust  for power over others rather then the message of salvation through Jesus  Christ. They established man’s churches thereby dividing Believers one  against another and formed political alliances all of which led to great  evil and suffering and persecutions and wars. As I write these words  the church age is coming to an end. These wolves are now organizing a  one world religion preparing for the last battle upon the return of  Messiah, the hope of mankind.

Truly,  what is written in not referring to the multitudes of humble Believers  who over centuries (and now) place their faith in Jesus Christ. It is  these brothers and sisters who truly accepted the message of Christ who  then witnessed to others, suffered for their faith, completed missions,  lived for God with the knowledge and faith they had, built hospitals,  built schools, and performed numerous selfless works in the name of  Jesus Christ of which scriptures are clear and I testify. God sees  within their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Nothing can separate  them from Gods love, mercy, and salvation. Amen.

NOW REGARDING MAN’S CHURCHES:

Therefore  'Come out from among them and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Do not  touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to  you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,' says the Lord Almighty.” 2  Corinthians 6:14-18

"do not be conformed to this world.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2, 9

These  posts are a guide to overcome the false teachings of those representing  themselves as "Christians" or Christian Leaders” and others who teach  doctrines diametrically opposed to the message of Jesus Christ. Modern  liberal activist churches and seminaries increasingly do not believe  what they teach or preach. Their agenda is to promote and lead people to  accept that all faiths lead to the same God in order to establish an  all-inclusive United World Religion. They may view themselves as sincere  but they are sincerely wrong and deceived by the Prince of this world.  Yes, that same spiritual entity who had the impudence to temp Jesus  Christ.

What  we here-to-fore inherited and accepted as the Church is actually a  “re-imaged” church which is very different than what first century  Believers recognized and understood. For centuries continuing into the  modern age Gods original pattern for His church was “distorted”. Now as  man’s church age draws to a close what has been accepted as the church  needs to be redeemed (if possible) and conformed to Gods original  pattern.

The  need for such change will be considered as an attack and viewed as  offensive by those entangled in century old distorted beliefs held by  Church Congregations, Pastors, Ministers, Denominational Leaders,  Progressive Seminaries, and Theologians. Does this mean we abandon “all  churches”? Not so if pastors, congregations, and their denominational or  non-denominational leaders will return to Gods original design and  purpose for His Church as chronicled in Scriptures.

God’s  church is a living church of True Believers, Followers of Jesus Christ,  edified by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit their true Teacher,  Comforter and Guide, all of which was ordained from the beginning and  will continue throughout the eternities. 

It  will take a revival within man’s denominational and non-denominational  Churches, its ministers, church authorities, and for the most part  individual churchgoers who through prayer and searching Gods Word are  found knowing for themselves. Can this happen? Yes, but only through the  power of the Holy Spirit and True Believers returning to Gods pattern  for His Church. Our contribution is to share the message and encourage  others to search the Scriptures for themselves.

The  circumstances causing people to leave “churches” are varied and upon  leaving Believers find themselves on their own, have serious doubts, and  wonder what happened? What in the world is going on? Where do I go from  here? When this occurred in my life over time I became fully  persuaded the only answer is a complete reliance upon “God and God  alone”.  As is written in the Scriptures: "God will do what is right” and “tho He slay me I will follow Him”.

The following principles are not open to compromise or subject to change by man's churches or assumed authority.

Pastors and Believers:

Are you ready to leave Babylon?
Are you ready to return to Gods pattern for His Church?
Are you ready to recognize and truly accept the Family as God established it?
Are you ready to accept Gods delegated responsibilities for family members?
Are you ready to acknowledge the Priesthood of Believers as God established it?
Are  you ready to acknowledge fathers as the Spiritual leader and teacher  within the home who prayers and blesses his wife and children

with the laying on of hands and baptizing family members?

Are  you pastors/ministers and churches ready to accept Gods ordained  pattern of His church?Are you ready pastors/ministers/and church  member to be the father that God would have you be?


​If  anyone will earnestly pray and study Gods Word they will come to an  understanding of these things. However if we because of fear or our  unwillingness to leave Babylon we are warned: “….  in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye  shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and  shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their  ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any  time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and  should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I  should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your  ears, for they hear Matthew 13:14-16 (KJV) You may be now thinking who is this passing judgment on others? Not so. Look at the spiritual carnage in the world something is very wrong and something needs to change.


Read and search the scripture’s for yourself earnestly praying for Gods Spirit to Guide you.

Ask yourself which is closer to Gods way, man’s organized religions and assumed authority or Gods Pattern for His Church?

Dear Reader this is not to be taken lightly and it’s between you and God.

Truth is a lonely warrior not for the faint of heart or those lacking spiritual discernment. Daniel R.L.​​


​The last Reformation      Revival     The Restoration Of All Things
Returning to the original pattern of the "Church",
 a message to Christians, Pastors and all Denominations.
 Part 2

​​​​​​What  follows is provided to establish a point of reference from which we can  clarify and substantiate the need to return to “the original pattern of  God’s Church.” It also addresses specific words from their original  language and their accurate interpretation.
While we must consider  the misdeeds of previous and contemporary church systems it is not for  us to determine the standing or conditions of the souls of those  involved who will one day stand before God. That is God’s domain.  Nevertheless be assured we are not bound to continue with them. Indeed,  we are called to “come out from them.”

Let  us not fail to keep in mind that there are many Believers’, Pastors,  Leaders and others in Churches who truly are seeking God. They desire to  live a God centered life but are restricted by the inaccurate and false  teachings of man’s self- authorized churches no-matter how sincere  their motives may have been when first established.
Here are links to  questions given at the end of the first post. They are from various  sources to provide a balanced overall perspective. I’ve made an effort  to select sites having minimal advertisement. Some are longer to  adequately address the subjects we are researching.

 Important:  Dear Reader please take time to earnestly consider the information  provided in order to correctly understand and visualize what will be  made known in the third post. Sincerely pray for the Holy Spirit  (Teacher, Comforter, and Guide) to be with you as you meditate upon Gods  Church. If you still have questions there are many sites available for  further investigation (Or) Send questions to: knowforyourself@nctv.com

The Preeminence of Christ:

"He  is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For  by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and  invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all  things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all  things, and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the  body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that  in everything He might be preeminent. For in Him all the fullness of  God was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all  things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood His  cross." Colossians 1:15-20

“And  He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those  who were near. For through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the  Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens but you are  fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”  Ephesians: 2:17-19

Anywhere there are True Believers sharing the Good News.​​​​​​

For where two or three

are gathered together

in my name, there am I

in the midst of them.

Matthew 18:20 (KJV)


​​​​​Priorities of Believers: God, Family, Community, the World.
The Family and Believers are under attack. 
Husbands and Wives divorcing leaving children to suffer the consequences "into the third and fourth generations."

Families were a long ways from being perfect but it was better than the alternative.


​Those  who teach that Fathers are not needed or that the traditional family  (one man and one women) is no longer acceptable as defined for thousands  of years have no common sense or are promoting the progressive  anti-Christian agenda, inspired by the Prince of this present world.

Those  coming from a loving traditional home cannot understand the emptiness  in a home without a father or mother. There is no way of truly  communicating the impact upon children. It would be like trying to  explain to natives living in deepest part of the Amazon Jungle that men  are walking on the moon and sailing in metal ships beneath the sea while  kill millions of babies in their mother’s wombs.

Being  a good father can only be learned and truly understood by having a  father who “lived it into you” so that you as a father, in turn “live it  into the next generation.” Oh, you can read about it or see it in  others but it requires experiencing a good family life to truly  comprehend all the intricacies, emotions, quarreling,  inter-relationships, lies, sacrifices, competition, disagreements,  hurts, healing, name-calling, love, forgiveness, etc. all of which is to  be kept under control, and shepherded by Godly parents. Oh, you didn’t  know that?

Family  life is not for the inexperienced, week or simple minded. Experiencing a  good family life where “growing pains” are properly contained, dealt  with, and used in the maturing process is critical to raising children.  Without a good family life with its failures and successes a person from  a fatherless home will experience years of immaturity with inherited  negative effects of growing up without a father. The traditional family  unit of one man and one women is now looked up as outdated and marriage  is being re-defined to accept group marriages, same sex marriages, and  adults marrying children, as equally valid.

When  I think of those who have suffered because of broken homes and violent  upbringing it brings great sadness and anger. I am astounded to see or  read where supposedly educated people (including many churches) who  define the modern family as any multiple of persons regardless of their  sex (male with male or female with female) or their perverted carnal  predispositions now having the legal right to adopt babies and children.  If you disagree with this folly you will be sharply criticized. If you  do not support this new definition of family you are labeled as  intolerant and by law need to be re-educated.

Dear  Reader please follow me here. I am now going to present something which  we have lost relating to how men (after God’s own heart) bond to wives  and children establishing a loving enlightened home. And how boys become  men and how a men becomes a Father.

The  family has been under attack for so long one wonders if we have lost  the ability to adequately define it. Is it still possible to  re-establish the essential spiritual elements of family life? Do we have  the discernment to recognize the importance of family as God views it?  Are we ready to do what needs to be done to save it?


The  following analogy is based on Scriptures and is clearly given for our  edification. Almost daily we hear of women being ordained as priest,  minister, Bishops, or other

positions and some are starting their own Churches with their own supposed authority and priesthoods.



We shall begin here.....how do boys become men and men become fathers? 

We  hear of women being ordained as priest, ministers, Bishops and other  positions or starting their own Churches with their priesthoods.

The  scriptures give examples of women anointed and chosen by God to serve  in various capacities and callings held by men but not ordained as a  Minister or in positions of Leadership over Believers. If a situation  arises where two (or more) women have accepted Christ and there is no  existing believing man to function as a pastor then a woman may serve as  a coordinator and teacher sharing and teaching the plan of  salvation until a man who is a Born Again Believer is found to fill the  position of Pastor.

Like  many others I often wondered why only men were ordained as pastors and  leaders in the church. Truly God

 Women have one of the greatest gifts granted from God. They are called to participate with Him in delivering a new life (a spirit, mind, body) into this world. The birthing process lasting nine months with all its emotional highs and lows, trials, and trauma of giving birth

It Shall Come To Pass As Foretold 2,00 Years Ago.

There were Three Major Events to be led by the Prince Of This World in the Latter Days: The coming World Government.....

The Coming World Financial System.....

And the Coming World Religion.

Nations will rise against Nations....

The coming New World Order.....

War and devastation will be used to bring about a New World Order.

We will be slaves to the money changers....

The Coming World Financial System.....

We will not be able to buy or sell unless we have the mark of the Beast.

The Religions of the world will become One....

The Coming New World Religion.....

Thousands of years ago Joshua admonished God's people to follow truth, avoid compromise, and shun "mans spirituality". His words are not welcome now ...when will we ever learn?


"The Prince of this world shall deceive even the elite".....

"In the mist of the seven years he will proclaim himself as god".....
