The Church that Jesus told Peter that He would build was and has been corrupted from the start incrementally through the centuries being attacked by the Evil One that father of all lies! I’ve said before how up to the Great Reformation the attacks had caused division and splinter groups straying from the original intent but up until that time they weren’t as forceful. Now at this point the divisions became massive and moved more and more into human self-stylized Cults calling themselves the True Church which I say the Prophecies and our Lord told us would be the case in End Time when so many would say look here, He has come or He speaks to us here. In this process some of these Church leaders became and are now the Hero or Star to follow. I’ve told others about how some of these splinter groups or so called Christian Cults have been on the attack and I’ve had them attack me calling my Church Evil and that all those following it will burn in hell. I had to point out to them asking are they so deluded to think that some rinky-dink Church like theirs somehow stands above the few ancient Orthodox ones and is the one place that Jesus through the Holy Spirit dwells. Further I asked who they thought they are to mock or attack like this. I told them how Jim Jones with his People’s Temple of the Disciples of Christ active between 1954 and 1978 was one such cult that spawned from the original Reformation movement in the modern nondenominational Churches, and thus to worship Jesus there having a sort of pseudo Seal of Approval; yet Jim Jones was a madman and evil heretic who led 909 souls to perdition and death in a mass suicide/murder pact.
The Reformation to me was nothing more than a “mass rebellion” against God’s Holy plan for His Church on earth, and Peter established the Church the way Jesus told him to do it, he Peter being the lead foundational member; as they subsequent disciples continued for centuries with some interfering forces always afoot, that came from the Devil to alter God’s plan; the Reformation movement was the capstone to me of the whole transgressed effort. As I see it, the alterations are still proceeding in earnest today to continue scattering the flock or God’s children from the truth. Jim Jones with his attack becoming an antichrist is a good case in point with his People’s Temple how they all were led so far astray that it resulted in the mass death! But looking all the way back to the beginning of the Church major change was in order by Christ’s own instruction on earth bringing his New and Everlasting Covenant, doing away with the Old Ways, but, that of course had conflict immediately. The temple was the Synagogue where the Jewish Pharisees who conspired against Jesus were using the Old Testament and the old ways were to be replaced with the New Church of Christ after his death and resurrection, and eating His Body and Blood are required and proper Sacraments which He instructed Peter the His lead foundational member of the New and Everlasting Church Covenant to build for His Church family of believers, his genuine chosen! Some immediately did what Christ instructed, much of it having to be hidden from the Pharisees and the Roman Emperor. So division has existed for the entire time since Christ’s crucifixion and it still does now! This only proves that point! Rebellion is of the Devil and that is pure truth! If we don’t do the right thing in these serious basic precepts of the Church then we will be in transgression of God Almighty for not accepting the Body and Blood of Christ on the cross, and in essence blaspheming God! We can be sure that when Jesus told Peter He would build His church there was no Bible or many issues or interpretations of the Scriptures for the mostly illiterate masses of that period of history to read, “the word” as an article points out called “Reformation Christians” who were giving great credence to the writings and teachings of Diana Severance a current reformist who made enormous effort to paint Anne Askew of the Old Reformation period, as one of the greatest nonconforming human beings to have ever walked the earth and indeed painted her as being from what I was hearing one of God’s most anointed, and a women for the ages for all women to emulate. But with these people the big thing; being that only the Reformation meant anything, which I say all of this rebellion comes from the Devil. But, this instead being of most importance that there was the “Consecrated Body and Blood of Christ” the “Holy Eucharist” that the Apostles were to do in remembrance and practice by faith, that they are eating the Body and Blood of Christ, which is a first and foremost Holy Sacrament without which you miss the whole point of having God’s Church on earth.
When I think about how much more stable and decent the world appeared to be compared to now not many decades ago, and how it’s like a ship sinking, and every man and woman for themselves; it makes for a very clear picture that we are in latter times. So in the End Time many will say look here He comes or listen to what this one or that one is saying confusing even the elect. We are there in effect having all the original pulling apart of the tried and proven Church being in many cases now off the rails, with many such self-serving false leaders; and this is happening in spades throughout the world.
This internet is also a tool being used by Satan to confuse, distract and perpetuate lies with. Look how many of us eat drink and swim in the cults of cyberspace even trying to make ourselves little god’s or “Cultist Leaders” telling others come hang here and see how special My Place is, give me some clicks and likes; when in fact such people have hidden or even advertised agendas such as making a buck, or feeding their own egos, and in some cases just passing the time away accomplishing little or anything of substantive value; blowing smoke up each other’s asses. A real time wasting activity or pile and load of BS.
Take a hard look around and look at what people are making of central importance to themselves. Junkies of one kind or another, with infomercials galore everywhere selling this or that and following one guru or another, many of which have followings in the millions! Or these mini-gurus building a following on this internet telling people how they went through something, but, “I got through it because Jesus helped me through my faith;” then suddenly this person thinks they are special and someone to be listened to saying I have a “ministry” that you should listen to, but, meanwhile go click here or send your donations for which I’m truly grateful. More like using Jesus to make some extra bucks! Basically people who prostitute themselves putting all kinds of personal family photos and data out into cyberspace to attract a following and continue their own little “Mini Soap Opera” in so much as it’s being like putting a bright light bulb in the dark evening will of course attract so many moths that end up flying around in circles getting nowhere, because that temporary little bulb in the dark fools them as it’s not the Sun that lights the daily world giving a genuine full view of all things and places with actual daylight; that the moths may need to see or go to. I myself saw how this cyberspace had me on some sort of treadmill thinking I need to check in daily and many times during the day to see who said what or if they liked what I said last time; and who knows if I might find some extra special surprise there today! A junkie getting his fix of daily Cyber Junk!
Before the Net came about I used to love watching a well-made movie, which I had even started out pursuing as a career in filmmaking many years back. I had always looked up to the top people in that Industry and saw great Directors or Stars as gifted and special, individuals worth listening to and following even. I did follow their lives and work almost religiously for a time while living in LA, and now I see how if not hero worship or even bestowing godlike qualities upon some of them; it sure was something that sucked up lots of my precious time and established a part of my core thinking or even behavior. Much like many friends and family or the populations around the globe do in spades with Pro Athletes, say like a Tom Brady. I’ve known guys to bet weeks or months of pay on a certain game or hero, even like boxing champs and the like; not only investing all that hard earned money that’s needed to pay the bills and feed their families; on something as foolish as a gambling bet, because their hero worldly god is so great to them, so they basically put all of this confidence and faith in them, to make it happen; so in their minds they can actually have a faith to count on this hero to save the day for them and bring more easy money their way! But not only that, they invest themselves; not just the money for the bet into this trivial stupid nonsense of sports betting or hero worshiping, and following these others as if they’re where it’s all at. Seriously, I’ve actually known guys who only talk sports and the next big game coming up, or all the plays of the last one that were phenomenal, which points out about all this nonsense, just how much some people are distracted and seeking crap! When they should be spending most if not all of their free time seeking God; through Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures He provided.
You won’t like that I say this, but the Truth is, the Church is a freaking damned mess! Many of them are cults and money making operations for their leaders or inner circle! Being brought up a Catholic and still considering that I favor the teachings of the Catholic Church especially pre-Vatican II Council, so for me more Orthodox fundamentalism; while I realize or know it too has many problems and issues. It’s been infiltrated with many sinful persons or ulterior designs to cause harm by the Devil; but so too, are the makeshift renegade style Cult Church models as well. While being a Catholic I used to, and up until recently thought how I had liked listening to one preacher or another outside of my Church some years ago like Billy Graham, and and recently gave much stock to Dr. Pat Robertson of the massive CBN evangelical organization that was until this last presidential election here in America. He said how Trump was going to win because God told him he would, and how Biden didn’t really have a chance! Well, I along with just about any idiot could figure that out just by the simple facts and how this apparently contrived horrid pandemic came along in the nick of time to throw things out of whack for Trump’s sailing smoothly to winning the election, as the Biden camp knew he was in trouble and couldn’t beat Trump; so by the global pandemic crushing the soaring economy, while also bringing into play mail-in voting; both of which were going to work against Trump winning. But, Robertson said he got the first Trump election right when he was elected, and God told him it was going to happen again, allowing him to serve a second term! The day after the election when he was wrong he got a bit quiet, and then faded off appearing on his TV show for a few days, while his son covered the store as it were. This made me starkly aware and seeing how no man is worth putting any of my faith in; to be a true chosen one and my leader, because the only one can and should be is Jesus Christ Himself! God knows; I haven’t been listening to Bergoglio for years, now the supposed leader of like I’ve said my preferred Church since my childhood; because he is a complete fraud and heretic as well as a very sinister communist NWO minded character, and even worse in my book! So now, to be quite honest I have a fragmented approach maintaining core values from the Church and Scriptures while attuning to those in the Church who still do the same and have great insight; knowledge of what is going on in real time and as well speak truthfully with great humility, not getting caught up in the politics or framework of the old school of going along to get along type thinking! These people call an apple and apple and an orange and orange and don’t sugar coat or skirt massive issues trying to deflect people’s attention away from truth to instead propagate a lie.
If you read this far with our shortened attention spans now in this fast paced tech world we live in, you may very well be saying you have been aware of all this or are becoming aware thinking how everything is so messed up; and what are we to do. If you are sincere and genuinely humble then you know the Holy Scriptures are a great place to park your undivided attention with frequent prayer to allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you; and guide you so Jesus himself will be instructing you daily as to our “Father in heaven and His will.” This mixed up jumbled up catastrophe of a world is out of control and is surely heading to massive disaster and annihilation. In fact Iran’s insane evil leadership just announced they intend on destroying Israel within 10 years! This just after Trump and his team had recently negotiated Arab Israeli Peace Accords between some surrounding nations in the region, quite a good thing! But, sadly now we find that once again Anti-God belief systems rule many people on earth which are about belief in man not God, how man is his own god; Luciferianism, Freemasonry, Illuminati massive cults are in control of many things now in government, education, entertainment, commerce and many other major institutions including medicine, especially Big Pharma.
I tell you this because, the writing is on the wall that we are in the End Time whether it’s months or years none of us can be sure of that; but you and I know if we are being totally honest that it’s not far off at all. Logically just by the horrendous mixed up confused condition of the world of earthly affairs we can see how this won’t go on indefinitely and is all heading down hill faster and faster each passing day. We all have to be very weary and sift out morsels of truth in worldly affairs, being your own detective; and if you have a Church you know to be following basic foundational Truth from Jesus and is trustworthy with just fellowship, learning Scriptures and a sharing of genuine humble faith in Jesus Christ, then you are on at least a leg to stand upon while you “seek Truth in all things.” I feel certain that most of you will agree that Jesus didn’t intend on things being this way with the Church that He instructed Saint Apostle Peter to continue as Jesus had shown him; with now so much disarray and scattering of the flock here there and everywhere! But I know I would have to say at least having the core of faith in Jesus Christ alone; with, by and through Holy Scriptures, is much better than doing nothing or being a nonbeliever and even some other uglier thing like these demonic cults that now worship Satan. Look at it this way we are in a totally dysfunctional house or family and our Church is in the same condition now giving Satan and the Antichrist to come, a major leg up on turning the world and peoples away from God and toward Satan; that is the end game and only game in a sense that people should take seriously; and not all this BS, like I pointed out of guys chasing other guys around a field carrying a pigskin or hitting balls with bats and pucks with sticks or any of the other hero worship nonsense major distractions; by which to me spells out and shows us clearly how there isn’t much time if any to waste on such trivial pursuits! Dig into your work ahead which is to seek Jesus Christ each day and do it with due diligence and genuine humble devotion to Him, not the crap of this world which is out to own you, and then ruin your path; to Him who wants to save you from this madness and evil!
Certainly, most of you have had it with all the hypocrisy and lies being touted about in our faces constantly by the politicians, MSM and other public figureheads including some of those champs or sports and entertainment figures, all of them living high and in the elite bubble, which to me they can have it, because I wouldn’t trade places with them for all the tea in China! It’s a huge whirlpool or trap sucking most of them in and down into the nether world of sin and debauchery. I recall someone on this cyber cruise we many times get caught up in, who seeks out attention constantly and does some hobnobbing with celebs from time to time and goes to some of the big entertainment venues that take place around the country, and when she got back from one of these couldn’t shut up about how grand it was to see Taylor Swift or Kanye West give a speech and how they are on such a great track, and she wants to join them in the way they are propelling themselves forward in their pursuits and beliefs; which to me are of mostly self-aggrandizement. I wanted to vomit hearing this rant or nonsense, and then I said she is lost being sucked in by the ways of the world and sin. Another person who is so into themselves that they say they want to follow Jesus on the one hand even proclaiming having a ministry, then like the moth going at the light bulbs fake light; goes right on following the ways of the world and these glory seeking famous idiots who are so damned in many cases; as if they are the best thing to come along since sliced bread.
Let’s consider these scriptures to focus on what matters according to the Lord!
Apostle Paul reminded us, “whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.” Philippians 3:7-8
“What was right will be wrong and what was wrong will be right!” Timothy 2 3 states, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
Who with their faculties and wits about them cannot see this is precisely how it is now in this present time and this “rebellious generation” like no other time?
I say with certainty He gave to all freely who will believe in Him as their only hope of salvation from all iniquity; He is our Lord, Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ!
“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23,
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” Acts 14:22
Jeremiah 17:5-13 English Standard Version (ESV)
5 Thus says the Lord:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
and makes flesh his strength,[a]
whose heart turns away from the Lord.
6 He is like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.
7 Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
8 He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.
9 The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately sick;
who can understand it?
10 I the Lord search the heart
and test the mind,[b]
to give every man according to his ways,
according to the fruit of his deeds.”
First John 2:15-16 says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.”
Galatians 1:10 says, “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Clearly from this verse, we cannot consistently please both God and the world. The desire for popularity and even fame or fortune is rooted in our old sinful nature. When we give in to it, we are living “according to the flesh” (Romans 8:5, 12).
Consider this; if we are consumed with loving the world, which means being devoted to the world’s treasures, philosophies, and priorities. God tells His own to set their priorities according to His eternal absolute value system. We are to “seek first” God’s kingdom and righteousness (Matthew 6:33). (Matthew 6:24) “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Material life and realm are the Devil’s.
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.” Matthew 24:23
“If anyone says to you then, ‘Look, here is Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ don’t believe it. False Christ’s and false prophets are going to appear and will produce great signs and wonders to mislead, if it were possible, even God’s own people. Listen, I am warning you. So that if people say to you, ‘There he is, in the desert!’ you are not to go out there. If they say, ‘Here he is, in this inner room!’ don’t believe it. For as lightning flashes across from east to west so will the Son of Man’s coming be. ‘Wherever there is a dead body, there the vultures will flock.’ Matthew 24:25-28
4Jesus answered, “See to it that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.”
9“Then they will deliver you over to be persecuted and killed, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, 11and many false prophets will arise and mislead many.”
12“Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” 13“But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved.”
14“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
15“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination of desolation”a described by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), 16then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17Let no one on the housetop come down to retrieve anything from his house. 18And let no one in the field return for his cloak.”
19“How miserable those days will be for pregnant and nursing mothers! 20Pray that your flight will not occur in the winter or on the Sabbath. 21For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again. 22If those days had not been cut short, nobody would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be cut short.”
23“At that time, if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There He is!’ do not believe it. 24For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders that would deceive even the elect, if that were possible. 25See, I have told you in advance.”
32“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its branches become tender and sprout leaves, you know that summer is near. 33So also, when you see all these things, you will know that He is near right at the door.”
36 “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark. 39And they were oblivious, until the flood came and swept them all away. So will it be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40Two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.”
42“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day on which your Lord will come. 43But understand this: If the homeowner had known in which watch of the night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44For this reason, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour you do not expect.”
45“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the others their food at the proper time? 46Blessed is that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.”
48“But suppose that servant is wicked and says in his heart, ‘My master will be away a long time.’ 49And he begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50The master of that servant will come on a day he does not expect and at an hour he does not anticipate. 51Then he will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
In closing let us realize what has been permitted to infiltrate and even permeate our governments around the globe!
Socialism as I see it is just another tool of Satan’s to be quite frank, along with any dictatorships and all communist ideology. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and any such monsters were truly “diabolical devils” doing nothing for humanity other than to crush it as they pleased! The CCP is the most dangerous aside from Russia in this regard now with their atheistic view of mankind they are to me Satan’s cheerleaders and earthly henchmen. Xi Jinping with that regime has had no problem in slaughtering over a million Tibetans in China’s push to expand its tentacles of power in that part of the world and then beyond.
God bless you.
