Freedom From Babylon
Recently I have noticed how I seem to come under more Spiritual attack whenever I take a bold stand against the Traditional/Institutional “Church” system. I do not think that this is a coincidence. However, I do tend to believe that this is just a matter of satan trying to protect his own turf. There I said it! And yes I do indeed believe that the Traditional/Institutional church SYSTEM is demonically inspired and in many, many ways Anti-Christ. Let me make this perfectly clear though, it is the system I am talking about and NOT the people who find themselves within the confines of this horrible system and tradition of “men”. I love the people who are trapped and unaware of the religious prison they find themselves within.
Now does Jesus still work within that evil system? Of course He does! He will always be trying to reach and bless people anywhere and everywhere. His presence does not equal His seal of approval though.. He is there because He has promised that whenever 2 or 3 gather in His name He will also be there. Folks who sincerely love Jesus are at times called to live and serve in Babylon for a season or two. I know this to be true because in Revelation 18:4 Jesus says, “Come out from her MY PEOPLE..”
Am I being harsh when I speak out against the Traditional system? Perhaps, but I only say what The Lord has taught my heart to share over the past 50 years. I weep and pray for those trapped within Institutional religion and I share the way I share in hopes that I may reach some with the message of freedom from religious bondage. Over the years I have been able to help hundreds of people out of the system and into freedom in Christ. That is where my heart is and why I share openly against Babylon. Paul’s encouragement to me and all of us in Ephesians 5:11 is this: “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” The truth be told is that bondage and hierarchies and dead religion all need to be exposed for the true hell they really are.
So truly it is my labor of love to share the message of freedom in Christ with those still held captive to false religion. To those who are in the Traditional church system I hold nothing against you, and if you do not understand my message that is just fine. Because all things must happen in His timing. Only HE prepares hearts and minds for the message of total freedom in Christ. Me, I am just a guy attempting to be faithful to the message and call to freedom that Jesus has given me.
I realize that some out there will never understand me or the message I have been given to share. I fully comprehend that I will be misunderstood and judged for the words He has given me concerning the true Church, the false Church, and total freedom in Christ. When Jesus brought this very message to the religious system of His day He was eventually crucified. However, I am comforted by the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:11-12: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” I want to thank several dear friends who heard the Holy Spirit and shared those exact verses with me this week not knowing of my current circumstances at all. The Spirit sure does meet our needs via the Body of Christ just like that quite often.
The simple truth is this: I love the Church! Jesus and His people are my passion! BE FREE IN CHRIST MY FRIENDS, BE FREE!!!
Love and …….
