I submit this, looking at things in a Kingdom way more than ever now.
We know first of all, that everything in the Kingdom is based in relationship with the Father, so Jerusalem is the first church. For us to expect to jump right back to first church in our mindset and attitude, is not possible.
We see the steps lead out of here, before it went to Greece and became a philosophy – which messed up almost everybody’s thinking, because there were thousands of philosophies among the Greeks.
Then it took a deeper step which locked it in religion, or man’s idea on how to get to God. This became so evil, that they were killing millions in the name of Jesus, whose Father is love.
You would think you could not get any farther from love and truth than this. However, when it came to the United States, it took a deeper step down and it became an enterprise, (BUSINESS) even a 501(c)(3) where you get tax credit from an evil government according to how are you obey their rules first, before the Kingdom Rules.
This one step took the final approval out of Father’s hands and placed it in the hands of the IRS and evil men.
It has taken years to establish this in the churches in America, because there were many good people whom I had, who needed to be deceived, and that deception had to come slowly and hidden, hidden, but now Kingdom people are so outnumbered, the axe is about to fall.
The sale of the gospel, through music, records, CDs, DVDs, books, and promises of great returns for small amounts of donations, has made the church apostate and filled with greed.
The only way back is to drop everything and go into the Word, with only the Holy Spirit interpreting what Father is saying from the throne. If it’s not scriptural and the Holy Spirit does not give you peace about it, we must throw it out and continue upstream, back to Jerusalem where the water is pure again. That’s what I’m doing – that’s all that’s left.
Don’t be shocked that enterprise is farther away from God than religion, but it’s true. Look at the scripture: knowing the love of money is the root of all evil and then the sale of anything that comes from heaven is part of the evil.
It is very obvious that it totally desecrates and pollutes everything coming from the Kingdom when you try to sell it or peddle it on the streets, over TV, RADIO, INTERNET and starting in lukewarm United States of America.
Look up Peter felt about it:
“Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me,” Acts 8:17-24.
Here it is:
The only way to get into the Kingdom and walk with your Father in the same lifetime is to take one giant step back, all the way up stream where the living water is pure again.
