Religious carnal people never really change
. They may bend a little, mainly because of the people around them that they do not want to chance losing, but really change, no
. Their knowledge of end time truth
, even when exposed to it, is in their heads, but not their hearts. When put to the test, the fruit of their actions
will prove they are bound to the knowledge of the tree of good and evil
. They prefer the traditions of man
. They choose the intellectual way of solving situations
rather than seeking scripture, the commandments of God, or believing the example Jesus set for us as
the way we should walk. The religious
do not look to the supernatural for help, yet, without knowing it, they are bound and governed by the dark side of it.
The religious like to sing their old songs with foundational truth in them
that was released ages ago and written specifically for that time. The resulting problem, truth is being released in today's songs
that shines a different light on scripture, reshaping our minds, giving us insight and direction the old songs do not have. The religious simply do not like today's prophetic music
. Songs of the world are OK with them though and listened to when not in church. What they do not understand, they are being assimilated into Babylon as well as the world
through their music which dulls their understanding and blinds them to the Kingdom of God. The fact that Satan was heaven's chief musician
before he fell from God's grace is of no real concern. Although this is scriptural truth they do not choose to hear or learn from it. It is not their concern either that music is creative
. In fact, the whole universe came into being through it
. Now think about the old song, Give Me that Old Time Religion, it quotes, "if it was good enough for daddy, it is good enough for me", thus more of the religious are birthed! The world's songs say, "I Did it My Way", so now they are religious and lawless! They are molded by both. The music and lyrics are not God's sentiments at all and so the
songs become the property of the enemy and anthems that create an attitudes that is right for the body of Satan, Antichrist
The problem is, the religious love their traditions more than the Lord
. You can show them from scripture where they are wrong, but still they will not change from the pagan rituals or worldly customs they were raised in
. These customs and rituals may be wrapped in a few Bible verses, but at best, all of it is religion, good and evil. Take the season we are in for instance. Christmas
is based on the birthday of Jesus who never celebrated it nor left dates for us to. He made no reputation for Himself. He was sent here to fulfill God's plans
. In fact, if you think about it, He was born into a cursed race of people
that He came to die for. He would even have to be born again or baptized to be a perfect sacrifice for our sins
. He would be born again completely through God this time. His first carnal birth was solely so he could become flesh, equipping Him to be able to function here on earth on our behalf. But, His home and glory is in the supernatural. He wants us to remember what He came to do for us
. Number one, He had to do all things first to fulfill scripture, so He had to come in the flesh to be the first to be born again. He then died for our sin, paid our death penalty
and rose the victor. Can you see why He wanted us to remember His death and resurrection
? It was through this sacrifice that He made possible our victory over death, hell and the grave
, not His first birth. Passover and communion
are the commemoration of the sovereign power of God
and His victory over the principalities and powers that challenge Him and His people. They also call to our remembrance the promises made to God's people in His covenants
so we can claim and inherit them.
Jesus, our example, who Himself said His walk was to be the way we should follow, celebrated Hanukkah or the feast of Dedication
about the same time the religious celebrate His birthday with elves, reindeer, mistletoe and yule logs. All these things were considered sacred, especially the precious phallic symbol, the Christmas tree
. Never mind the fact that the pagans used them in their idol worship. How any of this is related to God makes sense only to those that think from the knowledge Adam and Eve chose for them
and of course, they did not and will not change. It was good enough for daddy … yak, yak, yak!
Daddy dressed them up at Halloween too
, and taught them about ghosts, witches and goblins, in fact dressed them in their image. Today's religious and the world they embrace, do the same thing to their children.
To not celebrate these holidays
, to minds trained by the world's thinking, is to deprive children of their childhood. Or they will tell you, "we are taking it back for Jesus". There is no evidence in the Word of Jesus ever celebrating His birth or anyone else's. So how do you take back for Jesus something He never experienced or asked for? Of course many of these minds are a little blurry from the booze at the office party or the family gathering
that takes place in the homes of many so-called Godly people in the season of the holy birth. The fact that drunken revelry has always been a part of pagan worship
also is not a problem to them either. Let's face it, the religious just plain enjoy pagan ways.
Historical facts will not even change them. For instance, Jesus could not have been born in the dead of winter according to the recorded facts that surround His birth. But, to those steeped in Christmas tradition, snow itself is too precious to give up. What would their music be like without snow! Let's spray it on the tree, or on a miniature replica of the village of Bethlehem on the mantle or make a glittering runway for Santa's deer to visit. The traditions are gleaned from those that worshiped the sun
, not the Son.
Bottom line, colored eggs, elves, goblins and fairies have long ago made stardom in the world's religions and they will lawlessly alter truth and make excuses to continue their rituals. Why? Because, as stated before, they represent the dark side of the supernatural
. That is why the fruit of those that participate in such things is many times anger, drunkenness, lust, and especially perversion of truth
Will anything said in this article change things? No. It would be wonderful if it would, but it is actually written so the world cannot say it wasn't warned
. Each one of us will stand independently before God for our actions at Judgment
. But honestly, this is written to help strengthen those who have made the correct choice for the Tree of Life
, to walk in truth and follow His way. It is always encouraging to know that there are others out there that are not hypocrites.
There are two endings to the story
of humanity. Both are found in Revelation. One is found in Revelation 18:8-10. It goes like this:
8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day - death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. (Remember, in verse 4 God warned, come out of her My people.)
9 "The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning,
10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.'
Now let us read the other ending in Revelation 21:1-4.
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
For those that choose to be a part of the latter, let us close by reading Revelation 22:12-14.
12 "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last."
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
