TO ALL DENOMINATIONS, PRIEST, PASTORS, AND CHURCH LEADERS
> W A K E UP <
GIVEN THE TURMOIL OF THIS WORLD, COMPROMISED CHURCHES AND RELIGIONS, THE MORAL DECLINE OF SOCIETIES, LIES AND DECEPTIONS, AND INCREASING PERSECUTION OF TRUE BELIEVERS AROUND THE WORLD WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND PROCLAIM:
Gods Church is: Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Our True Teacher, Our True Guide, Our True Comforter, along with God's Written Word and the testimony of Creation. They are the living breathing Church Of God. They are adopted Sons and Daughters (Family) of God.
The Prince of this world and his followers are now uniting to establish their End Of Days false World Religion. Mans churches as foretold are falling away.
The time has come for the church, church leaders, and seminaries to earnestly evaluate, consider the assumptions, beliefs, and teachings of "man's churches and religions” compared to God’s pattern for His Church and Cristian Families.
Now is the time to teach Believers regarding the Priesthood of Believers and Gods Pattern for His Church and Families as clearly defined in Scriptures. If not now Pastors and Church Leaders, when will you follow Gods Ways not mans ways?
FUNDAMENTALS OF CHRISTIANITY
Jesus is the Son of God and is equal with God.
Jesus was born of a virgin.
Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life.
Jesus was crucified to pay the penalty for our sins
Jesus rose from the dead.
We are saved by the grace of God; that is, we cannot add to or take away from Christ’s finished work on the cross as full payment for our sin.
If you "cannot affirm" the above Fundamentals of Christianity you need to seriously exam your standing before God and repent, or resign from your position.
I write these things because their now are so many imposter's, deceivers, compromisers, teachers of false doctrine, and yes there are wolves who have entered the church deliberately to undermine the teaching of Jesus Christ. Thereby, many are hindered from coming to the knowledge of God's message of Grace and Salvation. They turn Believers one against another and degrade the church by promoting doctrines and behaviors that are contrary to Gods Word.
Does this mean God cannot reach souls in today's compromised Churches or Religions? God Forbid.
Scriptures testify that from the beginning God has used whomever or whatever circumstances He pleased to further His Eternal Plan for mankind. So it is today God may use any man, women, church, organization, condition, or sinner, to further His kingdom.
Nevertheless, we are to follow God’s pattern for His Church not man's churches, spiritual organizations or philosophies who assumed to themselves authority (as they suppose) whereby they exercise spiritual dominance over others. We are living in the age of deceptions, lies, and the falling away of which we have been forewarned.
God's Church is not constructed of wood, stone, bricks, steel, or glass.
God is not bound or restricted by men's churches, priesthoods, denominations, religions, mans spiritual organizations, or any of mans self assumed spiritual authority. No, none of that.
Jesus Christ is the “cornerstone” and “foundation” of God's Church and those within are His Family. Gods Church is Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers, having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our True Teacher, our True Comforter, and our True Guide, along with God's Written Word and the Witness of Creation. They are Gods living breathing Church. They are the adopted sons and daughters of God.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectionate one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another (in Christ). Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. (God knows the minds and hearts of men and will do what is right. He is our final arbitrator and will have mercy on whom He will have mercy.) Provide for the widowed, orphan, poor and sick, and live peaceably with all men.
CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE
> If you are fortunate to be in a Church that is committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ continue your ministry not compromising the message of Chris staying true to the faith. Nonetheless do not neglect to follow God’s Pattern for Christian Families and His Church. Pastor do you not understand that soon True Believer will be forced to worship in secret?
By teaching Gods Pattern for His Church and Families you can provide the knowledge and understanding of Gods way to protect families of True Believers? It is they Pastor that will spread the message of grace and salvation today and when True Believers are driven underground. Pastor, mans compromised churches are now openly preparing to unite with the False World Religion/Church to be lead by the Price of this World? Time is of the essence.
> Teach God's Word without compromise as long as you can until you are forced out. If you are employed by one of the mainline denomination that may be sooner than you think.
> Continue to teach false doctrine in a back slided compromised church, keep you pay check, and continue supporting the Prince of this world and his followers.
If you choose not to honor God's pattern for His Church and Christian Families you must ask yourself why do "mans churches" not teach that men are called and foreordained by God to be the spiritual authority and leader in the home, baptize their own children, bless members of the their family in sickness, give special blessings with the laying on of hands when they are in need of Gods guidance, establish a Family Bible study in the home; witness to, teach, and baptize members of there extended family, and other "God ordained responsibilities."
This is what the Christian family is about and the way to raise Godly children and thereby preserve the home. (”They are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people).
Mans churches have appropriated to themselves what was ordained by God for Husbands and Wives. Denominational Churches (ministers and priest) rather than follow God's Pattern for His Church and Family have followed the mans ways.
Mans churches, religions, philosophies, and spiritual organizations will not not easily relinquish their power, wealth, and supposed authority over others. Seek God's Spirit and seriously Pray about these things.
For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Colossians 3:23 ESV
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.
Romans 12:1-21 ESV
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies (ourselves) a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove (know for yourself) what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; (priesthoods and desire to rule over others) but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, (God’s living Church of Born Again Believers having a Priesthood not of men but as Ordained By God and every one (Born Again Believers) adopted sons and daughters of the Living God. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us (having abilities and spiritual gifts from God), whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching; Or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness".
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another (in Christ). Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. (God knows the minds and hearts of men and will do what is right. He is our final arbitrator and will have mercy on whom He will have mercy.) Provide for the widowed, orphan, poor and sick, and live peaceably with all men.
HOW DID WE MOVE FROM GODS CHURCH TO MANS CHURCH?
Pray and earnestly consider what is written here
so that you may be found knowing for yourself.
> Did first century Believers understand that after the days of the Apostles and what was then the Apostolic Church, would significantly change?
> What was God's message when Christ died on the cross?
(It is finished.)
> At the moment Christ died God split the Temple Vail from top to bottom? Signifying that Believers are now called to boldly approach God without the need of intersession of priest, pastors, or mans churches.) Go to the "The Vail" tab at the top of this page for more about this.)
The destruction of the veil of the Temple is important because it demonstrates we no longer need earthly temples, earthly priests, or earthly sacrifices. It was all accomplished by Christ, and we need only depend on Him.
> Before His crucifixion Christ himself spoke of the change that would soon come when speaking to a Samarian woman by a well.Yes, He did.
".....Now Jesus had to go through Samaria. So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”.
Then Jesus said:
John 4:13-26 KJV
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again.
But whosoever drink of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Note: If we are truly Born Again in Jesus Christ why then do we continue to follow man's churches (traditions of men)? In Christ we have a well of living water springing up into everlasting life. Mans churches cannot quench our thirst for God's living water.
The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. (She did not want to keep coming back to the well to draw more water.) Mans churches do not have Gods living waters so why then do we keep returning to them?
Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that said thou truly.
The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
Our fathers worshiped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, (Christ death and the tearing of the Temple Vail) when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshiper shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh, which is called Christ when he is come, he will tell us all things.
Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
Dear Reader: What is being revealed and taught here? How would it impact mans churches as we know them today?
Again, remember God's pattern for the Church and Families is
Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers, having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our True Teacher, our True Comforter, and our True Guide, along with God's Written Word and the Witness of Creation. They are Gods living breathing Church. They are the adopted sons and daughters of God.
After the fist century church was driven underground Man's re-imaged church, united with kings, tyrants, and political systems together ruled the known world. The Political system captured and used the bodies and energy of men while mans religions held captive the souls and minds of men. And it continues today. (This is not speculation or just someones opinion - it is Historical Fact)
For more than 1,500 years common men and women were keep in economic and physical slavery, and spiritual darkness. Bibles were chained to alters, Priest dictated what was to be known and what was not to be known, Priest had the power (as they supposed) of forgiveness of sins, they established "indulgences" where by a person could pay the church to absolved (forgive sins). The Greater the sin the greater cost. Common people were forbidden to read the Bible under threat of punishment including death. They were considered ignorant, unworthy and not allowed to read God’s Word for themselves. Where as Christ loved and gave his life for sinners and admonished Believers to come to Him and receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit to enlighten them.
The understanding of Gods forgiveness of sin, the reconciliation of mens souls through faith alone in Jesus Christ and the singular Authority of Scripture, was hidden until the time of the Reformation. After which many “Protestant churches” were formed and the message of Salvation through Jesus Christ alone (not by works, not by praying to saints or Mary, not by Priest, or mans assumed authority) began to be proclaimed throughout he world.
Scriptures teach us, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). There is nothing we can do to earn God’s favor or gain access to heaven apart from His grace.
Again what is God’s Pattern For His Church? Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our true Guide, our true Teacher, our true Comforter, along with God’s written Word and the Testimony of Creation.
That is God’s Church as given in Scriptures and practiced by first century Christians. Believers are the Church of God “His own special people” and are per-ordained as priest not by other men, Churches, or so called spiritual organizations, but by God as it is written: "You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, (A living church not of wood, stone, brick, steel or glass,”) a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light"
Which is to say: Believers are called "kings and priests" having a "royal priesthood", heirs to the kingdom of God. Our salvation could never come by our own will, mans churches, mans priesthoods, mans denominations, spiritual leaders, or philosophical beliefs. No, none of that. Our salvation comes only through God’s vicarious act of taking upon Himself the sins of mankind, that we have gained the gift of salvation.
In God’s pattern for His Church God's word is our authoritative guide (Sola scritura) along with God’s Holy Spirit”.
"Sola scriptura" means that Scripture alone are authoritative for the faith and the knowledge for us to live as Christians, and for witnessing to others of God's Salvation. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness”.
Believers are to search and read scriptures for themselves so that they may be found knowing for themselves. That ability to “apprehend” God's purpose is gifted to each Believer by God through His Holy Spirit , our true Guide, our true Teacher, our true Comforter, along with God’s written Word and Testimony Of Creation”.
Pastors teach Believers to trust only in God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit. An analogy - Like a good doctor would teach the sick how to stay healthy and strong for themselves. Believers need to stop relying on man's Denominational churches, ministers, and go directly to God themselves.
Denominational priest and ministers need to teach Men (Fathers) and Women (Mothers) what their God ordained divine callings and responsibility are for Christian Families.
What then are the consequences for not following God’s Pattern For His Church? Since the reformation many Christian Churches (Denominations) have came into existence organized after mans ways not God’s. Each claiming authority from God (while excluding beliefs and the authority of others) established their own priesthoods, particular beliefs, interpretations, core doctrines, and traditions. Which sadly resulted in denominational-ism with believers contending one against another, doing so violently even unto death, yes and damming one another to hell. All of which Jesus Christ and the Apostles strongly warned against.
This is a serious matter which I leave with you to ponder. Why did they go against God's way? What were the serious consequences for not following Gods Pattern for the Church, (Body Of Believers and Families). Read more on this topic in Gods Pattern for the Family and God's pattern for His Church and the Message of the Vail.
Why are Church members leaving?
Some leave being overcome by the things of the world and abandoned their faith. Others have openly accepted the Prince of this world, choosing to follow him. Others are put off by, Others are leaving because of fallen pastors, denominational-ism, hypocrisy, money, false teachings, unholy alliances, greed, lust for power, liberalism, bickering, the accommodation of sexual perversion and abortion. In other words the church has left them.
What then should pastors, ministers, or a church leader do? Return to God's Pattern for His Church and Families. It is being reported we cannot minimize how they effect pastors, their families, their church.
WHY ARE GOOD PASTORS AND OTHERS LEAVING THE MINISTRY?
These condition speak for themselves. Working in ministry whether you’re a full-time pastor or a lay minister, balancing a job and a church, can be challenging if not impossible. Families suffer, discouragement and depression (amongst a gamut of other things) runs like a river in the lives of those who sacrifice their own life to the cause of the church.
Another organization that helps ex-pastors explore the “whys” behind those leaving the ministry gives further evidence of what is happening
and provides support for those who have left, or are considering calling it quits.

Pastors and Ministers consider carefully:
How can a pastor, minister, or anyone with a family (which is their first responsibility after Christ) truly be effective doing all of the above and follow God's pattern for the family? The short answer is, they cannot.
Could we then ask: ”For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, but lose his own Family?”
What then should pastor's, minister's, or a church leader do?
Return to God's Pattern for His Church and Families.
WE AS A PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CONTENT TO BE RULED BY MANS
GOVERNMENTS AND RELIGIONS. WE HAVE REJECTED
GODS WAY JUST AS ISRAEL WHEN THEY CHOOSE A KING.
Will we make the same mistake Israel did as documented in God's Word?
1 Samuel 8 New International Version (NIV)
"So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”
Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights:
Then you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”
But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “NO!” they said. “We want a king over us. Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.” When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the Lord. The Lord answered, “Listen to them and give them a king.”
So now here we are in 2020 with government and religious leaders who view themselves as kings over us who are now forming a world government and religion.
If Mans Churches, ministers, and like minded followers continue down the path they followed in the past the Prince of this world and his followers will be pleased and grateful for their choosing not to oppose him, which by default is to say, they approved and supported him.
WILL WE CHOSE TO BE RULED BY MANS
END OF DAYS GOVERNMENTS AND RELIGIONS?
