This message is not meant for everybody, the content is hard to imbibe. I am not sorry for writing it, because this message is for the elect of God. Say what you want, the truth is not always what is pleasing to the ears.
Many years ago I heard a message that in the fullness of time revolutionized my world. it was spoken by one of the greatest speakers --in my opinion-- of our time. He is one of the less than ten people I have encountered who have gotten the message right (This is not to imply that there are less than 10 people who have gotten it right).
A Diversion: I always knew I was different, my life is the evidence of this factor. The stories my mom told me about my childhood and from the experiences I have had growing up. My belief in a higher power, a God who has dominion over all living creatures, has been at the zenith of my existence. Over the years I always thought I had it all figured out: the concept, the belief, my existence and how I function. Apparently, I had it all wrong. As hard as the truth might hurt, I had also fallen prey to the greatest deception perpetuated by the devil to on Church of Christ.
I guess you are wondering what this great deception is. This deception is deep rooted in the fundamentalism of the Christian Church today. Only a few enlightened ones have caught the vision; those who get it right are scorned, mocked, lied against and abused by the (1) CHURCH, and the rest is obviously (2) the world. Any attempt to try fix it will lead to one being branded a HERETIC. I believe the greatest deception the devil has succeeded in carrying out against the Church is the preaching of CHRISTIANITY. I can hear the voice of your thoughts also screaming HERESY! Believe it or not, that is the truth, that is why Jesus has not come yet; because I have faith that the moment this deception is rooted out, Christ will come for his elect as promised.
This is the kind of message that would have you burnt at the stake some centuries past. I Know, but it is about time the children of God and the Church of Christ lived out their true potential.
With the premise of this write-up established, it is paramount I make clear what I am NOT saying.
1. I AM NOT SAYING JESUS IS NOT THE CHRIST
2.I AM NOT SAYING HE DID NOT COME TO DIE FOR OUR SINS
3.I AM NOT SAYING HE REMAINED IN THE GRAVE AFTER HIS DEATH
4.I AM NOT SAYING HE IS NOT SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER
5.I AM NOT SAYING HE DID NOT SEND THE HOLY GHOST TO US
With this said, I can see you ask the question, "What are you talking about then?" Well I am talking about a simple message misunderstood, misrepresented and reduced to its lowest form. I am talking about a MISCONTRUED DIVINE MANDATE, which has been proclaimed for centuries; if God does not intervene, which I believe he is doing, this deception will continue to the demise of the Church. What is this deception I am talking about? Well if you know your Bible very well and you have allowed the Holy Spirit to lead you to all truth, you will AGREE with my next phrase, "PREACHING CHRISTIANITY." This the greatest deception the devil has succeeded in carrying out. He has been able to achieve what God in his nature was trying to destroy, ESTABLISH RELIGION. As hard as it is to believe, it is the truth; remember, the devil does not want you to believe this.
