Because your fight has not been with flesh and blood, but with Principalities and The Rulers and The Powers of this dark world and with wicked spirits which are under Heaven.
There are always wicked spirits governed by the prince of the air and the god of this dark world working against the Saints of God. And the most clandestine and insidious way of working against the Saints is to take control of and corrupt their understanding of God, God’s Eternal Commandments, The Way To Salvation and to Create a Book (Bible) filled with mistranslations and omissions so as to further confuse their Faith and Worship — creating divisions (denominations) and factions.
1 Corinthians 1:10
But I request of you, my brethren, in the name of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, that all of you would have one speech, and that there would be no divisions among you, that you would be perfected in one mind and in one conscience.
1 Corinthians 14:33
Because God is not chaotic, but peaceful, as in all the assemblies of The Holy Ones.
In this information rich age, it is well researched and documented that the enemy has infiltrated the body of believers and brought in doctrines of demons and teach for doctrine the traditions of men and the religions of false pagan gods as well as embrace vile immoralities and idolatrous practices.
1 Timothy 4:1
But The Spirit speaks plainly that in the last time they shall depart one by one from the faith and they shall go after deceiving spirits and after the teachings of demons,
Jude 4, 7-8
“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ … Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities”
We can easily see the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah (moral perversion) evident throughout the Catholic and Protestant Faiths today. Catholic priests as well as Protestant Preachers are given over to fornication and homosexuality. The mainline Christian denominations are rushing to accept same-sex marriages and homosexuality as a legitimate Christian lifestyle and many have ordained openly gay couples and individuals as pastors. The Catholic Church in America has paid out hundreds of millions of dollars in fines and settlements because of lawsuits won against homosexual and pedophile priests.
The way that the original Saints entered the Ekklesia of Christ and worshiped Father Yahweh has been altered. The perpetual covenant sign and fourth Commandment of the Seventh-Day Sabbath has been changed by men to Sun-god day – the first day of the week – and is now called the “Christian Sabbath.” God’s ordained and assigned gender roles for His Ekklesia has been homosexually violated and perverted whereas men are playing women roles and women are sitting in the place of men as pastors. God’s command to repent and be baptized in the name of Christ Yehowshua has been changed to a sinners prayer or a splash of water on the head or an incantation of the titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost. And speaking in tongues is considered something antiquated or explained away as being a supernatural phenomena of multiple human languages and not the tongue of angels or a sign of the reception of the HOLY SPIRIT.
He will speak words against the Most High and oppress the holy ones of the Most High. He will intend to change religious festivals and laws, and the holy ones will be handed over to him for a time, times, and half a time.
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
We are living in the end times. You can’t trust the so-called “Church” to tell the TRUTH because it doesn’t know the TRUTH anymore. It has had centuries of false teachings and pagan indoctrination and scriptural mistranslations and moral corruption where it no longer represents Christ but its own interests. The “Christian Church” at large has assumed divine prerogative and is now standing in the place of God using the name of God without God’s authorization.
2 Timothy 4:3-4
For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will multiply teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new. And they will turn their ears from the truth and turn aside unto fables.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
My friends, please be aware that although you may belong to a “church” and attend a “church” and serve in a church and give to a church and you may even believe in God’s Commandments, but until you obey God’s Commandments, you are none of His.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants. On that Day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord! Didn’t we prophesy in your name? Didn’t we expel demons in your name? Didn’t we perform many miracles in your name?’ Then I will tell them to their faces, ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’
It is sad but true. A lot of so-called Christian churches are no more than warehouses for damned and deceived souls. Satan has fooled all of us. And a lot of us feel that things aren’t as they should be. A lot of us know that our churches and our Pastors aren’t teaching the TRUE doctrine of CHRIST and His Apostles. (2 John 1:9-11) We sense that true holiness and divine revelation is missing from our assemblies. But yet we continue to attend and support the lie to our own shame and damnation. Why?
Are we so addicted and drunk on being entertained by motivational speakers disguised as preachers that we will sell our souls to hell for a feel-good message and an inspirational praise and worship experience.
Are we so vain and greedy that we will prostitute our souls for money, human success and accolades and ecclesiastical glory?
Are we so lazy and dumb as to trust our soul’s eternal destination to the hands, philosophies, theologies and traditions of other humans?
Have we forgotten that Salvation is a personal matter where we are responsible for our decisions and charged with working out your salvation with fear and trembling? (Philippians 2:12)
I pray that this article raises our awareness of the subtle as well as the brazen deceptions of Satan and our personal responsibility to expose his wickedness and resist him and return to God and the authentic Faith of Christ and His Apostles.
I pray that we REPENT before it is too late. I pray that we find the narrow WAY of Righteousness and Salvation. I pray that we become ever more weary and cautious of the ways of popularity and acceptance, tolerance and moral compromise.
In the name of Yehowshua Ha’ Mashiach, I pray that we REPENT!!!
