It would seem that Pope Francis does not believe this as he is trying to unite the world but not necessarily under Christ. The Islamic Allah is far different than the god of the Bible. I have a video for you today about this issue and how the Pope it’s not standing firm on the word of God which is the sword of the spirit.
The pope is being heralded as some kind of Rockstar when he is not. He has far more serious business to attend to within his own church. The Roman Catholic Church in the United States is in sharp decline. Since 1955 the church has lost 36% in membership as of this day. Some may because of the scandals that he has refused to deal with until public officials made it impossible for him to ignore no longer. If the foundations are destroyed what can the righteous do?
Korah and Associates were rebelling against the leadership of Moses and Aaron and that is where we left off last time. Here was the outcome.
As a result of Korah’s rebellion he and 250 of his followers were literally swallowed up by the land.
So what can Democrats and Republicans learn from the lesson of Korah? God places leadership in Authority by his will. In our political system, as I have said before, whatever party wins an election the other party does all it can do to undermine the other party. Never mind that it was the people’s will that voted the winner into Authority the other party tries its best to block that Authority however they can despite it being the will of the people. The outcome is easy to comprehend. Very little gets accomplished for the country.
In our last election President Trump was elected president. The Democrats were so surprised by the results, given the number of polls for their party, that they have blocked every effort of the Republican Party as a block in direct Defiance of the people’s will. You see that is how our government is supposed to work, but that is misnomer because when they do that it actually doesn’t work. Why? I may have discovered the answer and it is found in the Bible.
If Donald Trump was put in Authority by God, as was Barack Obama before him, then those that resist the president will bring judgement on themselves and that could be found out in November. Like it or not the presidents polls Are Climbing as he is doing great things for America despite w Democrats best efforts to stop him or impeach him. As to the latter perhaps the Democrats better consider Korah and what happened to him and his bunch? Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. And as the prophet Haggai has said, Consider your ways.
It’s deeper all right; deep in apostasy. Do you know that Laban was the first Pentecostal? It is said in Genesis 30:27 that Laban learned by experience! Was this the Pentecostal experience? In Hebrew the word for experience is divination which is the Pagan parallel to prophecy. To the Jews divination was not something you wanted to be or have. Here is another way Genesis 30:27 reads- Scripture itself testifies that experience is akin to divination, a practice banned by Israel. Banned by Israel but accepted by Pentecostals? Laban thought he was blessed by this. Blessed by divination? I think not. The Pentecostal experience is the same thing as Laban learning by experience or as the Hebrew language would put it learned by divination. Divination was a pagan practice and the Pentecostal experience today is also a pagan practice. The roots of Pentecostalism go all the way back to the beginning of new thought. Ernest Holmes who many Pentecostals hold in honor was one of the fathers of new thought. It was a form of mesmerism that was being taught. And this is the foundation that the Pentecostal Church stands on today. Pagan mesmerizers. An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land. The prophets prophesied falsely, the priests rule by their own power, and my people love to have it so. That is recorded in Jeremiah 5:30-31. Today thousands are flocking to Pentecostalism. for wide is the gate that leads to destruction and many go in by it. But narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life and few find it. I hope all those that are Pentecostal read this article for your Eternal salvation. Your gate is not in divination but truth.
Do you not understand the difference between Ephesians 2 and James 2? Remember one has to determine the audience spoken of and keeping the text in context. James spoke to the 12 tribes of Israel in James 1:1. Paul spoke to the body of Christ in Ephesians 2.
Join these three teachings with Ephesians 2:8-9. By Grace you have been saved through faith, it is the gift of God, NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast. Now you have the biblical teachings about Grace plus nothing. The passage in James implies Grace needs works but that was meant for Jewish believers. When Jesus Christ said it is finished he meant finished. He did it all for us and no amount of work can save us. It’s Grace plus nothing. I will break this down in part 3.
For the body of Christ it is Grace Plus NOTHING. Some believe this is a contradiction with the book of James. Here is a verse from James.
James says faith without works is dead. Is there a contradiction? Absolutely not! How can that be? Ephesians 2:8 says, NOT OF WORKS lest any man should boast. But James says, faith without works is dead. On the surface it does appear to be a contradiction but the word of God does not contradict itself. What most people do not realize is that Paul was writing to the body of Christ and James was writing to Israel. How do I know this to be true? Let’s examine James 1:1.
James was writing to the 12 tribes of Israel scattered among the Nations and that is not the body of Christ. The Twelve Tribes relates directly to Israel not the body of Christ. Israel or Judaism more precisely believes in a works salvation as does the Mormon church and the Restored Church of God. The latter Church believe that America is Ephraim and that they are spiritual Israel which opens up on another whole can of worms. About the Apostle Paul Who is the Apostle to the Gentiles or the body of Christ says it is grace alone that saves. But Ephesians 2:8 is not the only evidence of grace alone and not it works text as we shall see in part 2 of the series.
The time of the falling away has arrived. I am 100% convinced of it. Almost daily another apostate group pops up and the falling away is within the body of Christ. I have a good friend that is caught in the middle of one of these groups called the restored Church of God. That body believes that if you leave that particular Church you are doomed to hell. The only true church syndrome. They capture Souls by their own doctrines of men. Jesus would counter that saying, in vain they worship me teaching as doctrines the Commandments of men and you can find that in Matthew 15:9. But there is more to the falling away than the Restored Church of God. The Elijah List, the New Apostolic Reformation, the Hebrew Roots movement, Messianic Judaism, and many more to follow. Many in the body of Christ are being swept into this funnel that will lead to destruction. One of the meanings of falling away is rebellion. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. This is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the Law of the Lord, who say to the seers, do not see, and to the prophets, do not prophesy to his right things, speak to us smooth things, prophecy deceits, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us and this is from Isaiah 30:9-11. The church is in Rebellion against God. We have fallen away from the Bible and giving heed to extra biblical revelation by pastors that have no business in Ministry.This is Todd Bentley and he has no business in the pulpit. He is out of the extreme prophetic movement. I believe the beginning of the end started at Azusa Street with the Revival of the Pentecostal movement and things have spiraled downward ever since. Each new group seems worse than the other. They get further and further away from Bible truth. And no one seems to care. Congregations applaud their foolishness. 1st Corinthians 2:14 says, the natural man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, because they are foolishness to them, nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. Discernment in the church is missing in action and has been for some time. The church has fallen for all the foolishness of the Pentecostal movement. We are very close to the rapture. Then the man of sin will be revealed and some pastors will be left behind because they taught their people the wrong things. If the blind leads the blind both will fall into a ditch from Matthew 15:14. The punishment of the prophet Shall be the same of the punishment of the one who inquired and you can find that in Ezekiel 14:10. You won’t be able to blame your eternity pn false teachers because you have a responsibility to know the truth that will set you free but only if you abide in his word, the word of God and John 8:31-32 is where that is found. If you are a part of that Falling Away crowd, repent and return to the body of Christ before it is too late.
