It’s not as though these other religions are preaching different versions of the same thing, and Christians have become resentful and afraid of losing their preeminence – not even remotely. I would not even be religious if that were the case. I would just be a sinner, and I’d be good at it. At one time I was, for many years. But I was never religious. Religion is so common in the world. Faith is not. Don’t confuse the two, they are not related.
Only true Christianity has true Faith. Most who consider themselves believers are not part of true Christianity, they are part of religious christianity. Which is not Christianity at all. It is pretend and phony. That’s why it has no power. The power is in the anointing. Everyone has access to it, but it can only be accessed the way God has established it to be accessed. And no other. Christ is not Jesus’ last name. It is the Greek word for the Hebrew word Meshiac [Messiah], which means the Anointed One and or His Anointing. The second meaning the Anointing that goes where He puts it. Which is upon those He has authorized to speak for Him.
Jesus was chosen by God and authorized to say and do everything He said and did. And He had the anointing to back both it and Himself up. He walked on the water because He had the anointing, He raised the dead because He had the anointing, He cast out the demons and fed the thousands with a handful . . . because of the anointing. Not because He is the Son of God. He was already that before He came down here. He came [as a man] to show us [men] how this becoming a Son of God was done [by a man] so we [men] could start doing it ourselves in His Name by following His example. The Bible is very specific on what that example is. That specific example is itself the narrow way, and few travel on it.
Your life depends on you personally getting a hold of why He became a man. The reason He became a man was to bring you to the Inside because you were born on the Outside. He did not do this just so we could agree with what He did and then keep doing our own thing, like we did before He came or before we came to Him. That’s all getting saved is if what you did was say a prayer without realizing you just signed a contract [in the Spirit realm]. That’s what a covenant is, a contract. Except this one is written in blood.
Every true believer has a level of the anointing, and certain things will follow that to prove it. The Scripture says so. But there is even greater anointing in and under the Ministry that every single believer is supposed to be a part of. Ephesians 4 and Romans 10 lay this out clearly. Read them in several translations. Relatively few percentage wise are Called to ministry. Everyone is commanded to get up under the authority of those who are Called. But they cannot make you. God wants everyone to be saved, but Jesus only dealt with those who followed. God will not force Christianity on anyone. Not even those who call themselves by His Name.
With your words you signed a contract. A contract to change and keep changing, until you are just like Jesus. Which of course, you cannot even begin to do alone. That’s why He sent a bunch of help [all described in His Word], but you can only take the help He sent. The help He sent has Power [to help you become like Him, not to help you with your plans to avoid Him]. All other religion does not have any power, so it cannot help you.
God did not start religion, He did not send any of those others. All of the different Offices of the 5 fold ministry were birthed or realigned by Jesus himself. Getting saved is an option for everyone. Getting up under the authority with anointing so that you can grow is not an option, for anyone. We should not be surprised at the monstrosity and size of this religious deception. Jesus warned us about again and again. Especially for the Last Days.
Apostles did not come out of thin air, Jesus created the Office. A few centuries later, Religion shut them all down. They killed most of them. None of the crusades were Christian, they were all Catholic. All of them. Yet so many people including most believers think they were christian, simply because they don’t know history. The very first crusade was against other orthodox believers in Constantinople who refused to join the growing religious mafia of catholicism. Later they would go after the true believers who were operating in the power of the Holy Spirit by true faith, through a wicked device they invented called the Inquisition.
They murdered them by the hundreds of thousands. The Albigenses, Waldenses, Huguenots and Cathars. Born again spirit filled Christians who refused to line up with the heresy, corruption and dogma of the Roman Catholic Church. They killed them because they were the apostles prophets evangelists pastors and teachers, and they had the power. It was the same reason they killed Jesus in His day.
Religion has no power and if it cannot have it, it will kill those who do. But they only had power as they stayed submitted to the rank and structure of Authority as it was created by Christ himself. This is non existent in the church today, because the church as we know it is the Body of Religion. Just as the true Ecclesia is the Body of Believers. Which is the Body of Christ. This body of religion is huge in the earth. Catholic and protestant. It costs nothing to join, and nothing happens when you do. You get to stay exactly the way you are, while telling everyone you follow Jesus.
God is not looking for physical bodies who don’t want to go to Hell. The Creator of the Universe is looking for a people who will learn to live by faith and produce Fruit. These are the ones He is coming for. The Body of Christ is small, less than 10 per cent of those who say they believe. No man has to go through another man to get to Jesus. You can accept Christ all by your self. Every man who wants to follow Him must do it through the rank structure and authority that He himself set up. That is what the 5 fold ministry is. The place you must go to follow Him. You cannot follow Him alone. People who refuse to do this expose their own hatred of submission and their contempt for authority that exists in the fallen nature of all men. Well that is the nature of Lucifer, it is what we became in the fall of man. When Adam and Eve sinned.
It is this fallen nature that must be crucified and did not get born again. That’s what your cross is for. What we think, what we feel and what we want. They are part of our soul not our spirit. They were not saved when you became born again. Your spirit is what got born again, and it is the only place God speaks to you. When man fell he didn’t die soulically, he died spiritually. Your dead spirit was brought back to life, but your soul is where you must change. It is the 5 fold ministry that shows you how to use your cross, how to crucify your flesh and die to self. So you can save your soul. The Bible says it is the goal of your Faith.
Jesus gave His ministers the authority to train believers with His Word. That’s what the 5 fold ministry does, they discipline you with the Word of God to do the things of God. They make you grow up in Christ so that you can mature and produce Fruit. But you must submit your self. God requires it. This is the process. Nowhere in the Bible is it given to us as an option. It is this 5 fold ministry with authority and anointing making disciples that is completely absent from all modern religious christianity. Catholic and protestant.
The Catholic church doesn’t have any of the anointing at all because it doesn’t have any of the Authority at all. It never has had it. That’s not my opinion. Go check it out yourself. You don’t have to believe me. Go look at any Catholic church anywhere on the planet at anytime, including the Vatican. There is a strong sense of religion but no presence of God. A clear demonstration of much control, with a complete absence of [supernatural] Power. And high ceilings do not denote Power.
But here’s the thing you have to check out: the people. Especially the clergy. The anointing and authority aren’t on buildings, they are on people. Yes, there are some amazing and spectacular buildings, but that’s the whole point – it’s a Disguise. The spectacular of the physical distracts and fools our carnality through what we see with our eyes, keeping us from seeing the moving of the Spirit which is subtle. Most of the time. Which can only be seen with the eyes of our spirit. That’s how God wants us to see Him, with the eyes of our heart.
You’ll notice immediately that the people in these religious systems are devoid of the true Holiness, Peace or Joy that comes from following God. If you’ve never seen these things you may not know what I’m talking about. Instead they are filled with a long dead, bone dry, deeply powerless Religion run by a bunch of frustrated, fussy, effeminate little old men. Who replaced Him as the boss a long time ago. Hungry for power, lonely for love, they are the Institution that has become both the apex and the epitome of everything God never meant the Body of Christ to be. This is man on his own without God, trying to work his way back to God on his own terms. It is called Religion. And it is a stench in the nostrils of God.
If you are not following the plan, the mold, the blueprint, the instructions, the order of battle, the building code that He laid out in His Word about His Son – what makes you think you’re a Follower. You’re not a Christian because you call yourself one, or because you go to church. You are a Christian because you do what Christ did and you say what He said. And even when you miss it, you only know that you missed it because you know what it was that He did. Don’t speculate on What Would Jesus Do, the Bible is filled with what He did do! We are supposed to do what the Bible says. Go and do what Jesus did, go and say what Jesus said. Then you will be . . . just like Jesus.
