The Deception â€˘
Matthew 24:24 KJV
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Who Would Have Known The word deceive was derived from the word ensnare and means to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid. It is a common practice in our society today and used by many companies and governments to get out of employees, vendors, and customers what they need to survive. Others have used this practice without knowing that it is being practiced in their lives. Our society has become so unaware, or maybe I should say, so accustomed to being deceived that it has become accepted and now part of what it takes to run a successful operation. There are many different ways for one to be deceived. One way is to be false to or to act towards someone or something in a way that is different from the intended purpose. Another way is to fail to fulfill or to make a promise and not keep it. This next way of deception is the way I would like to focus on as it is the most famous and most often used. This is the way that gives a false impression or appearance; to appear to be someone or something that is not true. Now that we understand what deception is let’s look at it as it applies to the lives of those that are called Christians. First, the word Christian means “like Christ,” or to have taken on the very likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ. Gal. 3:27 tell us that as many of us as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Phil. 2:5-10 tells us to let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. So to be a Christian we are to take on the mind of Christ Jesus along with the fellowship of his suffering in obedience to God even unto death whose reward is life and life more abundantly. Jesus said it like this in Matt 4:4 “man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God,” the word proceed indicates a present tense’ and also Deut.8:3 “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” The life of the Christian is dependent on the words that proceed out of the mouth of God, this is how he attains the mind of Christ. What constitutes the mind of Christ? Is it acting out what we read and study in the Bible or is it how we are instructed to act from the religious teachers of these times? How do we obtain the mind of Christ? These are questions that have stumped religious churches all around the world. When we look at ourselves and who we are, we find that we have been shaped and molded into what we are based on experiences and beliefs from our childhood to our adult life. We raise our kids based on how we were raised, we seek relationships based on different experiences and we choose our lifestyles based on the same things. In the same sense many of us choose how we will serve and worship God. When God made us, he made us in his image and in his likeness; then he breathed in us and called us a living soul. We were here but not here until God breathed in us, then we became conscious or our minds became alive to our surroundings, our nature, and who and what we are. When god breathed in us, he gave us his mind. God is the source of who we are, he is our mind and consciousness, this is how Jesus could say when you see me you see the Father. When God
said to Adam if you eat of the fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden you will surely die and when Adam ate of the tree the separation from the source occurred and man really did die. When this occurred we lost the mind of Christ, we lost our freedom, and we lost the knowledge of who and what we are. We became dead to the Spirit of God, in other words “we lost our minds.” Acts 2:38 says "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call." This is how we will again obtain the mind of Christ, this is how we will be saved from eternal death, and this is how we will live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. So now, being a Christian simply means having the mind of Jesus Christ. Take a look now at what is being taught today in modern society as it relates to the words that proceed out of Gods mouth. Most people are taught that to hear God they must attend a church or have a church home. That is to say that they must be under someone (pastor) who teaches God’s words. It has been said that one must attend a church so that they can have a covering or some sort of protection that is believed to come from that church. The truth is that synagogues and churches have been around since the days of Solomon and has been used as places people gather to worship and offer sacrifices to God. The deception is that the church is a necessary part of our salvation and service to God. Some even believe that it is the place to go when wanting to experience the power of the Holy Spirit. The truth is that upon the death of our Lord Jesus Christ the necessity of the church as we see it today has been diminished to nothing. While Jesus was here on earth he established his church (Matt 16:18--And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it), where he, is the governing body of the believers (St. John 10:7-11--Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep). The church was established through the teachings of Jesus Christ while he lived on earth and continued or consecrated as his own upon his death, burial and resurrection. The work and establishment of the church did not end upon his ascension, it had merely just begun. The purchase had been made, now was the time for the church to began. The work of the old church or natural church failed; the church that appealed to and atoned for the flesh. This was the work of the law whose punishment was death. The church that would lead to salvation would be taught by the one who required the debt of sin to be paid, thus, causing the necessity of a sinless teacher. This teacher would live in the heart and mind of the church so that it would not forget the law, be deceived by false teachers, or required to work in a way that would atone for sin. This teacher would be the Holy Spirit. St. John 14:26 says “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” also Heb. 10:15-17 says “Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17And their sins and iniquities will I remember
no more.” The church would be taken to the place where true worship to God is required. St. John 4:23 tells us “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” The true worshippers or, the new church would worship the Lord Jesus where he is (in the Spirit) and they would worship by faith alone in Jesus Christ. The old church required a sinful man to mediate to God for a sinful people; which caused deterioration in the relationship between God and man; the new church destroyed the old church and gave a perfect man to mediate for a sinful people, which would reunite men with God. St Jhn. 2:19 says “Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up,” making the old church no more. The devil wants us to believe and continue to work in what is no more. He has assumed pastoralship of the old church and has convinced the world that when Jesus said “I will raise it up in three days” that he didn’t really mean that. He has convinced the world to continue to live under the Law of Moses, preach the Law of Moses, believe in the Law of Moses and offer salvation under the Law of Moses. The devil (Anti-Christ spirit) has convinced the world that it is saved, by giving it something to measure it’s religion to, through works of the flesh. Our society of church members has become so confused that now it believes that it is right and that it is saved when they confess Jesus with their mouth but their hearts are far from him, it now calls the Anti-Christ spirit Jesus, not knowing who it is serving and it now lives under the law and calls it grace. Our work for our Lord Jesus is produced by faith; our work does not produce our faith. Now we must understand that the devil knows God, lived as an angel with God, sat at the feet of God, and praised our God in heaven. He knows God in a way we have not yet experienced. Now that he is no longer with God he uses what he knows to imitate God or act in a manner that is very similar to God; in a way that if it was possible he would be able to fool the very elect of God. With this strategy he listens to us when we pray as if he was God and will answer (he is the prince of this world St. Jhn. 14:30), he gives gifts as if he was God, he uses the emotions of our flesh to imitate the presence of God’s Holy Spirit, and causes us to believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us. He has convinced us that we can get to Jesus through the flesh or a building. He has built many different kinds of church houses (alters in the old testament), appointed ministers unto himself that feed us scripture that keeps us bound to the law, shows us how to keep the law; because if we are guilty of one part of the law we are guilty of the whole law, and appeals to the desires of the flesh to keep us from looking elsewhere for what our souls truly desire. He is the one who deceives the whole world, he (the anti-christ) is not coming, he is here now. So Rev.12:10 says “…Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” The new church simply says “just believe.” Hebrews Chapter 11 verse six; but without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. It is natural for the devil to not want us to believe, his mission is to keep us separated from God. With this in mind, it is absolutely necessary for a Christian believer to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. When we will come to the Lord Jesus believing that he is and that he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him, we will find that we are covered and protected from all the traps of the devil. The devil wants to keep us from that kind of a relationship, that kind of relationship keeps us in a place where the devil cannot touch us. Jesus said "and for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I
for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; that they all may be one; as thou, father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou has sent me" John 17:19. Praise God, in that place we cannot be deceived. The deception here is, that the spirit of God lives on the outside of man. The devil and the church teaches us that the feeling of the Holy Spirit is felt in the flesh. The truth is, there is only condemnation in the flesh, the spirit of God does not dwell in condemnation. Romans chapter 8 verse one say there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit. The spirit of God is not a force that can be touched by the hand of man. The spirit of God dwells in the heart of the believer, it is felt and seen by faith. It does not require that we need to be in a particular place or under a particular person, the only requirements of the spirit is that we believe. The devil keeps us confused by teaching us that we can only have access to the spirit through the church house, working in a church, keeping laws of the Old Testament, and giving our money to support his (the devil) work in this world. Living in the spirit is a way of life and a mind change, it causes us to think differently, not the way we think according to the way of the world, but according to the way of God. It teaches us that our thoughts are not like Gods thoughts and our ways or not like God's ways. It teaches us that to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. It shows us the mind of Christ as we live day by day, to keep us from being deceived. Living in the spirit of God is the only requirement of being a Christian. Everything we need in this life to see Christ and to live by his words is in his spirit.
Chapter 2 The New Prison-------The Prison For Your Soul All too familiar a setting; the fancy clothing, getting the car cleaned Saturday afternoon before Sunday service, and the visit to the barber/beauty shop in preparation to arrive at the prison Sunday morning. Family and friends have arrived; the deacons are making preparations for devotion while the choir prepares to dazzle the congregation in song. The lead singer is a little nervous and the Pastor getting ready to deliver a message as he attempts to draw two or three more souls to his congregation. The ministers have arrived to the pulpit and devotion has ended, now church is about to begin; who is preaching today some are wondering and others thinking I hope he/she has a word for me today. The choir has sung and the preacher has preached, now I am ready for the week, I got enough to last until we meet again next week. Every week, how grateful we feel to be pulled into the prison and fed the lies of being free, how grateful we are to eat from the table of our accuser and befriend the hand that has us captive. We been doing it for so long this has to be right and it sure does make us forget about the sin we are in. Who would have known, I can still live in my flesh and call myself a child of God. Who will know, they say all have sinned, plus, God will understand. Sound familiar? Sure it does, itâ€™s like being let out into the yard once a week except there are no bars, no guards in uniform, no alarms and no guns. It is the illusion of freedom to a world of enslaved people.
How great a deception the enemy has pulled off, how could a whole world of people be deceived? The plan was thought out way before you and I came into existence. It was studied and tried; it failed and learned from its failure, then tried again. This time, not in an outward opposition to God, but to act like and imitate God will be the plan. This time he (the devil) will make the people believe that he is God. The plan would consist of a place to keep people captive; it would have to be a nice place and a place that would appear entertaining, made to look good on the outside with an appearance of God-like attributes. The plan has to consist of an alter for the devil to imitate God, as well as a place for worship and sacrifice to him. Oh, don’t forget about the ministers and pastors; they are needed to institute the sacrifice unto him. They will come this time, he (the devil) thinks, this time they will serve me and there is no more saving them. This time he (the devil) thinks, they can’t see Jesus, they won’t believe if they can’t see him. They, he thinks, will be my people and I will be their god. What a plan he thought and execution of the plan begun. Who would have thought so many would be deceived, who would have known so many would come without any force. A prison that required no arresting officers, no guards, no weapons, and no bars; how could they escape a prison they can’t see? How will they seek freedom when they don’t know they are prisoners? How great a deception! Is religion the way to salvation or is it another deception by the enemy. Can religion free us from the trap that the enemy has set against us? Let's talk about religion. What is religion? Religion is a cultural system that creates powerful and long-lasting meaning, by establishing symbols that relate humanity to beliefs and values. Many religions have narratives, symbols, traditions and sacred histories that are intended to give meaning to life or to explain the origin of life or the universe. They tend to derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle from their ideas about the cosmos and human nature. This is a definition of religion found in Wikipedia. This definition gives up some insight on what religion really is. This definition does not include any avenue or way to freedom. It seems to align with the plan of the enemy. As the definition states, it creates powerful and long lasting meaning by establishing symbols (idols) that relate humanity to beliefs and values. One of the most common symbols used in religion is the Bible. It represents to humanity salvation in God. The deception is that the Bible is the word of God. The enemy teaches us that everything we need to live by, is in the Bible. He teaches us to exclude the words that proceed out of the mouth of God and tells us that everything that God will ever say is in the Bible. The enemy tells us that we should seek refuge in the Bible rather than in God. The truth is that the Bible is a testimony of Jesus Christ in the lives of those who had a personal relationship with him. The truth is the Bible teaches us that salvation, or freedom is found in none other than Jesus Christ. The writers in the Bible wanted us to know that the same relationship they had with Jesus, we can have also. They wanted us to know and see the freedom in living in the Lord Jesus Christ so that we would not be prisoners of the Antichrist spirit. We must realize that the Bible represents the two stone tablets of the Old Testament that Jesus came to fulfill, because that law condemned men unto death. So, there is no freedom in the law or the Bible, freedom is in the spirit of Jesus Christ. Now, this does not make the law or the Bible untrue, the Bible is true; it tells the story of Jesus Christ in all his excellence, as God and as a man. It shows us the mercy and love of Jesus Christ for all who will be led by him, as well as the salvation offered to all mankind if we will believe in him and him only. The enemy wants us to hold on to the Bible and teach our kids how to honor and reverence the Bible. With this mentality the prison will be on going from
generation to generation. This is the chain that keeps us bound to this world. It is not the Bible that is the chain, it is the honor and reverence we give to the Bible that keeps us bound to this world. All honor and reverence goes to Jesus Christ, he is the God spoken of in the Bible and the God honored in the Bible. It is the relationship with Jesus Christ that the Bible points towards. It is easy for things to become distorted in prison, in prison there is a different kind of lifestyle prisoners live. There is limited communication to the real world, and only things approved can be brought into the prison. In prison things or monitored, people are watched, rules must be obeyed, prisoners have no choices they only do what they are told to do. So, when a prisoner becomes free, his relation to the real world is distorted. There is no easy adjustment for a prisoner who becomes free, he has to relearn what he has learned. He has to change the way he thinks, and learn to adapt to a different lifestyle. Upon our arrival into this world we were born in sin and in iniquity did our mother conceive us. We were born prisoners and everything we know and learn is based on a lifestyle of captivity, we have to unlearn the lifestyle of captivity and learn how to live free. To be free, we first, must know we are prisoners. Another very common symbol used in religion to represent freedom is the church house. The church house, a very well thought out and well-designed place for the prisoners to meet. The pulpit, the place for the ministers, this will be the most holy place in the church. The choir stand, the place where the appeal to their senses will begin. The congregation, this is the place where all the people can worship the enemy. The enemy thinks “for this to work, they must come willingly.” The place must appeal to their natural senses. A symbol of the cross would help it relate to Jesus in their eyes and instead of animals we’ll take their money for sacrifice; that way they will feel like it is their own. How great a deception, the enemy thinks, he will have us build our own prison. A minister, well versed in the Bible, he can take the place of Jesus and lead the congregation. They won’t know any better, he ponders, the Old Testament is filled with people leading people. By the way, it is not what he says that will get their attention, it will be how he says it. Some will want to hear whooping and hollering, others will want the educated type of minister, then there are the ones who just want to be apart of something. All types of ministers will be needed so we won’t discriminate against anyone; men, women, teenagers and children, whosoever will. The deception is, to free ourselves we must be doing works of the flesh and proving ourselves to be worthy Christians. We focus all of our attention on fixing ourselves, not realizing that judgment is not based on what I think I should look like or how I should act, it is based on what God sees me as and how he tells me to act. When God looks at us, in whatever state we are in, we are sinful; and the wages of sin is death. The key to freedom is held by Jesus Christ and salvation is only offered to those who believe in him only. St. John chapter 1 verse 12 says “but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have a Savior who has the power to free us from the prison of our souls. He has the keys to the prison, if we can believe; all things are possible to those that believe. Acts chapter 16 verse 31 says "and they said, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved, and thy house." Philippians chapter 2 verse 5 says "let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus," and Romans chapter six verse three says "3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7For he that is dead is freed from sin." So now, when God looks at us he does not see the sin of the flesh, he sees his son in us because we believe in Jesus Christ and were baptized into his death. We are no longer servants to the flesh or this world; we were raised in the likeness of Jesus Christ. We no longer live to appease the flesh and the lust thereof, but we live to appease and satisfy the Lord Jesus. He is the substance of our salvation and it is by the words that proceed out of his mouth that we live by. Our life and our relationship with Jesus Christ proves that he is alive and this is what makes us a city that sits on a hill that cannot be hid.
Chapter 3 This Prison Has Rules Too The 10 Commandments, how many know them and have learned them growing up, Sunday School/Bible School is where they are usually taught and nearly every person at one time or another have read them, learned them or know them. “Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord your god in vain, Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy, Honor your father and your mother, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, and Thou shalt not covet!” This would be the establishment of the first covenant or agreement between God and man. How popular these Ten Commandments have become in our religious society and have now been incorporated in many of our religious leaders’ church covenants. We teach these to our kids and many of them are made to memorize them. We have them posted on our walls at homes, in the office or cubicle at work, and at the church houses where we go to worship. These ten commandments have become more popular than the U.S. Constitution, The Constitution of the Russian Federation, or The European Constitution and has been imprinted in the minds of all those with religious beliefs. This is what God told Israel at the foot of Mount Sinai at the beginning of the relationship he planned to have with them here on this earth. This would be the foundation of their service to him as he descended from the mountain to speak to his people (Exodus 20) and make a relationship that had seemed to be long distance more personal and intimate. These were the rules; all the laws that would be given to Israel would be derived from these Ten Commandments. This would be how God would be honored and respected, and how men would treat other men. This would let all the other nations know that Israel would be God’s people and God would be their God. The rules have been established and the stage has been set, God by his word would establish his people by the words of his mouth. He would be their teacher, he would be their comforter, and he would be their God. A new beginning for mankind, a start-over if you will, God would give men another chance to be with him where he is. It would take some effort on man’s behalf, but of all the things that God had already done for Israel they would surely
believe (Exodus 1 – 19). Throughout the time of Israel God would teach them how to grow their relationship with him, he would tell them what he likes and what he didn’t like. As in any other relationship communication with him would be necessary and he would teach them how to communicate with him and how he would communicate with them. He would teach them that there could be only him and not another, that their relationship with him would depend on their sanctification to him and him only and that he would not share them with any other. As time went on he would continue to long for them to be close to him and in return the desire by his people to be with him would become less and less. His people would begin to see and seek after others, they would not listen to him but would rather listen to others. They would establish their own leaders and would rather serve men rather than serve him, they would set up their own ways of worship and sacrifice and not listen to him. He would plead with them and send his prophets to show them the error of their ways but they would rather kill and ignore them rather than listen to what God would say to them. The relationship with God would be diminished until his existence in their lives became irrelevant and their senses became dull to his love for them while the lust of the flesh became more and more prevalent rather than their love for him. Now, the opportunity for the establishment of the prison seemed viable, the enemy (Satan) would seize this opportunity. God saw the weakness of the flesh and how the love for it made the law to no avail in the lives of men, in his mercy he would come down in the flesh to make another appeal to men who seemed to only want to hear from the flesh. He would show who he was through signs and wonders, extend his love through forgiveness of sin, and offer reunification or salvation through his death burial and resurrection. He would give himself a name of the flesh that men may be able to relate to him (Jesus) and live among men in the nature he made us in. Another appeal, in his love, would be made; a final appeal to the flesh and the doing away of the law because in the flesh the law brought condemnation. Jesus would send his Spirit to bypass the sin of the flesh and bring men to a spirit nature where no condemnation is, because through the death of Jesus all sin had been atoned for. There would not now be a necessity to do any work because Jesus did it all for men, it would just require us to listen and to believe. Now, a second covenant would be established a new agreement between God and men doing away with the Old Covenant by blood and calling men to the place where God is, (in Spirit) where there is no condemnation. Hebrews 10:14-17 tell us “For by one offering he hath perfected, forever, them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.” Also Romans 8:1-6 tells us “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” In doing away of the Old Covenant, the devil being the deceiver of the whole world begins his work. As found in Chapter 1 he would
convince men to continue the works of the Old Covenant as he attempts to imprison God’s greatest creation. Now that the prison has been set up, there must be rules, he would not change the rules God established in the old covenant, but would use his ministers to continue to teach men to live by them. The desire of the flesh is still in us and he would use that same desire against us. God saw, that because of the sin of the flesh we could not be reunited to him through the flesh, but through his Spirit, he would live in us and us in him, so that we would not forget him and do away with the lies and deceptions of the enemy and of men in us. We would be transformed from men of flesh to men of the Spirit. Romans 12:2 says “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” The deception is that we are justified by the deeds of the law, when in fact the law and its deeds are in existence no longer. Romans 3:28 says “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law,” so the enemy continues to establish salvation by the law in the midst of salvation by grace. Romans 7:4 “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.” Here is the understanding the enemy eludes us from, here is the understanding of salvation through Jesus Chris, here is the necessity that there be rules for the prison. Thou shalt have no other gods than the lord your god, now called Satan. Galations 3:10 “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written , Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.“ This is it, he (Satan) thinks, instead of calling them rules we will call them religion. There would have to be many types of religion to appeal to all types of men. Each religion must have their own part of the law; they must feel some ownership in their salvation although they have none. Careful, we must be, he (Satan) thinks, if they learn the whole law they will know Jesus (he is the fulfillment of the law) so the rules must be taught and guards (Deacons) put in place to help protect and limit their understanding. My pastors must be well rewarded, some much more than others to give them a reward to strive for in the flesh. This time, he (Satan) thinks, we won’t go after them, they will come to us. Elegant we must be in teaching the rules, the one most learned of the religion will be the one most rewarded. Now, we have them! Now, they will be ours!! They will come because they are people of flesh, they will desire me more than God; I will give them gifts they can taste, feel and touch. I will show them my signs and my wonders in the flesh and they will long to live rather than long to die. This time we must be persistent with the religion, we must teach not only the Apostles, Teachers, and Preachers, we must also teach the women and the children. We must broadcast it everywhere; on every computer, on every TV, on every radio station, and every other electronic device. We will not broadcast ourselves but we will advertise our Pastors and Apostles, we will advertise our prison. Our Apostles, Teachers and Preachers will believe they are the shepherd and intercessor between God and men; this will be the foundation of our doctrine, this will keep their hearts from seeking Jesus. We will teach them to go to the Pastors, Teachers, and Preachers rather than Jesus Christ. What a deception, they will believe they must be taught by other men rather than the Spirit of God. In the prison, we must get everyone involved including the children. We will copy the words of God, we will bind our laws around their heads and around their waist, we will tie our law around their arms and write them in their hands and when a child of Jesus rise up in judgment against us in this world
we will condemn them. Oh yes, he (Satan) thinks, Jesus will have to write his laws in their hearts and minds because we will write ours everywhere else. Prisoners they will be, they will pay me tithes to support the prison, they will usher more people into the prison, they will choose their day to come and be taught, and for food we will serve them lies and deceptions. This time, they will sing praises unto me and shout how good I am to them. This religion will be simple, it will convince them I am Jesus and they will call me by his name. The bible will be their standard, it will be their law. We will teach them how great Virgin Mary was and some will worship her, others we will show how great Paul was and they will worship him, and then others we will show them Moses and they will worship him. Most importantly, every home, school, and church must have a bible. They must study the bible more than listen to Jesus. We must be on our guard, he (Satan) thinks, if they hear him they will turn from me. The bible will be their guide, it will be their roadmap to me in the flesh, he (Satan) thinks, and we will call this world The Kingdom. It will be the prison they designed, built and cherish. My rules, my people; I will be their god and they will be my people.
