The Motel (Church) Visit – Part Two

Title: The Motel (Church) Visit – Part Two
Dream
Date: 4/13/2011

I came to a particular town and was told to stay at a specific motel. I walked over to the motel and from the outside it seemed okay, but as I looked more closely at the room I could see something was terribly wrong. The room where people had stayed was in ruins and no longer suitable habitation. I knew the city authorities would soon condemn this room.

eunuch makerAs I kept looking over the property for a suitable room to stay in I found an even bigger room, but it was an appalling ruin as well. It was made to hold a large group of people. Looking from my left to the right I could see rot, ooze and decay from the floor to ceiling. I looked farther to the right and saw many workers hurrying to plaster over the walls to cover up what was really there. As I stood in disgust at the chaotic scene, the motel owner’s wife came up to me and gave me a full frontal hug. She bounced her hips into mine as she whispered, “I love you”, in my ear, making every attempt to arouse me. She was lustful in every sense of the word. I stood still and didn’t respond to her seduction whatsoever.

I then continued deeper into the building and came to a long hallway that led to an even larger room. There was a long line of men standing in line waiting to enter the room for something but I couldn’t see what it was. The line stretched from the front of the room all the way down the hallway where I was standing. I had to find out what was going on rather than just wait to get to the front of the line. It might be the wrong line, something I don’t need.

I walked past the men in line to see what was happening at the front of the room. At the front of the line, I saw two men put their hands on the next man in line and wrestled him into a bent over position, exposing his scrotum. The man put up a fight but it was too late for him. He was overpowered by the strength of the other two men. Then to my horror another man came up from behind the bent over man with a pair of shears and can cut off his scrotum. It happened that quick and it was horrifying to watch. I looked at the face of the next man in line and he showed no concern whatsoever. I said, “Don’t you see what they are doing? They are cutting off their testicles! Let’s get out of here!” The man didn’t react to my warning in the least. He was under a spell of some kind. All the men in line seemed to be under a spell. The closer to the front of the line the stronger the spell influenced the men.

people in line smlI made my way to the back of the line towards the exit and told a few men what lay in wait for them, but only two men listened to me. They indicated they wanted to walk out, but I knew they wouldn’t just let us leave. I told one of the men to act like he was fainting and I would carrying him outside to get some fresh air, and then we would make our escape. The man immediately began to act like he was passing out. I told one of the guards the man just needed air. The guard wasn’t very bright and said, “I don’t think air will help.” The other man and I assisted the man outside and just as soon as we cleared the exit door I took off running. I ran as fast as I could for five or six steps before I looked back and realized there was no one pursuing after us. I said, “Oh wow, we’ve escaped!”

Meaning:

The dream took place in a motel. The motel in the dream represents a place of sexual activity where seducing spirits are in operation as well as a place of business. The woman in the dream was the motel owner’s wife, but it is a parody about a church where the pastor’s wife operates in the Jezebel spirit.

The woman in the dream had position, influence, and power and had cleverly taken over the operation of the motel. In her heart and mind it was her baby. It was her business. She had used her bewitching powers to gain control of the money and day to day operation. Her actions had turned the place into a disgusting ruin. Her goal was to turn every male into a eunuch and kill those who opposed her evil reign. All those who submitted to her would become her children, her slaves, and her “Yes” men.  The woman was Jezebel.

The Hebrew meaning for Jezebel breaks down to something like: Un-husbanded or Un-Exalted, Unmarried, Chaste, Without Cohabitation.

The Jezebel spirit is sly and creates utter ruin in the body of Christ. Unless the Lord reveals the spirit is in operation the congregation won’t even know what spirit they are up against. They may sense something isn’t right but won’t be able to locate the source because the Jezebel spirit cloaks itself in so many ways. The prophet will know who is manifesting the Jezebel spirit  when the Lord reveals it to him. This is why Jezebel tries to kill the Lord’s prophets.

“Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.” 2 Kings 19:2

The Spirit reveals that the one who call herself a prophetess is really operating in the Jezebel spirit. “But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.” Rev. 2:20

The cunning, Jezebel spirit is two faced. On one side is the “companion” side. This is the “friend” side and it is used as a disguise to gain the people’s trust in order to discover their dysfunction. Once a person’s dysfunction is discovered, Jezebel begins to find ways to manipulate them to advance her cause. If a person begins to tell of Jezebel evil deeds others find it hard to believe because they just see the “pal” side. With Ahab her discovery is shown in her inquiry. “But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “How is it that your spirit is so sullen that you are not eating food?” 1 Kings 21:5

On the other side of Jezebel’s face is sinful and murderous side. Jezebel cloaks this side from the people’s view, especially the pastor, never letting him see it. However, anyone who opposes Jezebel will find out real quick how murderous this spirit can be.

In the dream the woman constantly had to plaster over the walls to hide the hideous ooze of her sin. Jezebel is devious and an expert at covering the trail of sinfulness to prevent being detected. The Jezebel spirit is difficult to detect unless the Lord reveals it’s presence to the prophet. That is why Jezebel tries to kill the prophet to prevent from being exposed.

plaster smlWhen I saw the plaster being applied to the walls, I thought about what Jesus said to the religious leaders.  “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.” Matthew 23:27

Jezebel loves to teach and play the prophetess. She is self-called, self-appointed and calls herself a prophetess. She loves to minister in the church but her goal isn’t to help people but to make spiritual eunuchs.

In the dream the men were waiting in line but didn’t know they were about to be castrated. One by one they were neutered and didn’t see it coming until it was too late. Jezebel had used her power of seduction and witchcraft to blind their eyes to actually what was really going on.

The Jezebel spirit will lie dormant in a person waiting until they are given a place of power. Jezebel plays the role of prophetess, teacher, friend, but she is two-faced. As soon as someone walks away from her presence Jezebel will bad mouth them. Jezebel’s teachings are a mix of truth and lies which are inspired demonic spirits and has caused many to commit acts of immorality, spiritual adultery and self-worship. In the dream the woman was in full arousal mode in an attempt to seduce me as she moved her hips in a rhythmic, full frontal hug. I knew  she was Jezebel, for the Lord had revealed it and there is a huge price to pay if anyone continues to tolerate the presence of a Jezebel spirit.

‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. Rev. 2:20

Eunuch definition – Wikipedia:

A eunuch is a person who may have been castrated, typically early enough in his life for this change to have major hormonal consequences. Typically castration was carried out on the soon-to-be-eunuch without their consent in order that he might perform a specific social function; this was common in many societies. Eunuchs probably served as servants or slaves who, because of their function, had been castrated, usually in order to make the reliable servants of a royal court where physical access to the ruler could wield great influence.

Jezebel

She listens, consoles, counsels and uses her seductive powers put a spell as many as she can. Remember her goal is to make spiritual eunuchs out of them. The kind of congregates which are simply described as a “Yes” men. A “Yes” man is someone who tolerates Jezebel as it is written in Rev. 2:20?

Jezebel knows no limits to get what she wants

1 Kings 21: 8-10

So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. And she wrote in the letters, saying, “Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, ‘You have blasphemed God and the king.’ Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.” Anyone who opposes Ahab will find that Jezebel will be working behind the scene making up lies and stirring up others to join in her cause. Jezebel is ruthless and has no limit as to what she is willing to do to get what she wants.

Summary

Jezebel will always have a group of “Yes” men under her control just like Ahab. Even though the dream took place in a motel, it is a parody of a church where the pastor’s wife is operating in a Jezebel spirit, controlling the church from behind the scenes, especially the pastor. He was Jezebel’s first victim.  Jezebel is drawn to weak, dysfunctional men because they are easily manipulated into doing her bidding.

Jezebel loves to play the role of a prophetess as she utters her false prophecies, which are vague at best, and impossible to verify their fruition. She wants to instruct others from her platform as she tries to build a following even though her own life is filled with sin and wounds from her past. Jezebel in the church impersonates a spiritual vessel of God and wants to create an environment where people are dependent on them.  You are my children.” Jezebel takes every defection from her camp as a betrayal and makes every attempt to get them back. Jezebel’s clarion call is “Come back, come back to me my children.” Her spiritual tentacles are long and difficult to escape. Jezebel hates the prophet of God and will attempt to kill them. It is a murderous spirit and not to be taken lightly.

The longer a person submits to a person manifesting a Jezebel spirit, the more likely that person is to become spiritually neutered and of little use to the work of the kingdom of God. Jezebel uses sexual seduction, witchcraft, intimidation, and fear to control people. Jezebel will counsel with a person, consoling them with cunning lips, but just as soon as the person leaves their presence Jezebel will talk disapprovingly of that person.

The Jezebel spirit enters into a person from open wounds usually caused by traumatic childhood events in which they had no control to stop. The internal wound is an open door to their soul. The wound is seeded by the enemy with a Jezebel spirit. Jezebel mindset says, “I will never again allow myself to be in a situation where I’m not in control!” As the person grows up and ascends to a position of prominence, the Jezebel spirit begins to evolve in their life, changing the dynamics of the person and all those who come in contact with that spirit.

This is an extremely strong spirit and difficult to discern because it cloaks itself so cunningly. It can manifest in the corporate world and in the corporate church as well. The hardest lesson to learn is even though a person is being influenced by a Jezebel spirit, God still loves them. We are to pray for those mistreat us and ask God to deliver them from the forces of evil. I have seen God deliver a person from a Jezebel spirit and do it in a way which was so beautifully graceful to that person.

“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.”  LK 6:27-28, 32

Scriptural Warning:

Again, I feel compelled to warn you that as a believer you are warned not to commit adultery with her. God knows those that are truly His. If you are seeking Truth then I believe God will reveal the forces of darkness which are hindering you, and deliver you from those powers. However, for those who are not seeking a relationship with Jesus Christ they will find themselves under Jezebel control committing spiritual and perhaps natural adultery with them and God will judge you according to your deeds. Repent while you can!

‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. ‘And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. Rev. 2:21-22

Scripture Reference:

Rise to Power

It came about, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he married Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went to serve Baal and worshiped him. 1 King 16:31

Murderous Spirit

for when Jezebel destroyed the prophets of the LORD, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave, and provided them with bread and water.1Kings 18:3

“Has it not been told to my master what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of the LORD, that I hid a hundred prophets of the LORD by fifties in a cave, and provided them with bread and water? 1 Kings 18:13

Her Domination over Men – Prophets

“Now then send and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel, together with 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.” 1 Kings 18:19

Jezebel Schemes for Ahab

But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “How is it that your spirit is so sullen that you are not eating food?” So he said to her, “Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you a vineyard in its place.’ But he said, ‘I will not give you my vineyard.'” Jezebel his wife said to him, “Do you now reign over Israel? Arise, eat bread, and let your heart be joyful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name and sealed them with his seal, and sent letters to the elders and to the nobles who were living with Naboth in his city. Now she wrote in the letters, saying, “Proclaim a fast and seat Naboth at the head of the people; and seat two worthless men before him, and let them testify against him, saying, ‘You cursed God and the king.’ Then take him out and stone him to death.” So the men of his city, the elders and the nobles who lived in his city, did as Jezebel had sent word to them, just as it was written in the letters which she had sent them. They proclaimed a fast and seated Naboth at the head of the people. Then the two worthless men came in and sat before him; and the worthless men testified against him, even against Naboth, before the people, saying, “Naboth cursed God and the king.” So they took him outside the city and stoned him to death with stones. Then they sent word to Jezebel, saying, “Naboth has been stoned and is dead.” When Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, Jezebel said to Ahab, “Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead.” When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, Ahab arose to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it. 1 Kings 21:5-16

“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.”  LK 6:27-28, 32

‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. ‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. ‘And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. Rev. 2:20-22



  • Sunday Morning Church Visit – Part One

    Title: Sunday Morning Church Visit – Part One
    Dream
    Date: 4/12/11

    Note: This is a first in a series of dreams I have been given over the course of the past few years. It is my hope that you will read and carefully consider what the message of God is saying to you.

    Modern Church InteriorDream: It was Sunday morning and I decided to go check out a local church to see what they were up to. My wife was surprised that I was going back there. She said she would come later. When I drove up to the facility it had been completely remodeled and was ten times larger than before. I parked in a side parking lot near an entrance so I could get in and get out without being detected. The nearest door led to an outside area which was enclosed by a tall fence. There were some teens in great number doing some kind of orchestrated dance led by the children’s pastor.

    As I walked on a path that led into the main structure I came to a room with some small tables which seated five or six people. A pretty young lady, which was on the church staff, met me there and sat me down with three young men of which were 19-20 years old. The young lady snuggled up to me, putting her head on my shoulder, and said, “I miss you so much, we all miss you.” Then she pressed her cheek against mine. I didn’t respond in kind.

    I noticed the three young men seated at the table all had some kind of dysfunction. I asked one of the more alert ones what was wrong with him and he just grunted something unintelligible. The young lady, who had seated me, hurried off to another room. I got up and followed her to the room. The room appeared to be designed like a lounge. It had room for many tables and had a bar the length of the right side of the room. This was the room where the faithful and long term members were seated. The three young men would go here next to once they had been approved by the young lady and the others in leadership.

    I looked around the room before leaving and saw a child about twelve years old playing in a silly manner. They were teaching her this behavior so they could use her in skits and plays to lighten up the mood as they made fun of other Christians, denominations and religions. I peeked in the doorway a little further and saw a blonde headed woman seated in the middle chair of the dimly lit lounge’s bar. Her back was turned to the other people in the room. Only certain ones, which had her approval, could sit by her and the room was crowded with people waiting to be approved by her so they could sit with her. I quickly moved away from the doorway so as not to be seen.

    I entered another room and saw people all standing around in a circle. One of the leaders placed ten yellow garden hoses on the ground. In the middle of each of the yellow hoses was a Y coupler.  On the left side of the Y coupler was a yellow hose which had already been attached. The left side of the Y coupler was a labeled “Separation” and the right side was labeled “Jesus”.  The object game was for each participant to disconnect the yellow hose from the left side labeled “Separation”, and reconnect it to the right side of the Y coupler labeled “Jesus”. I watched each person participating in the game make the connection with “Jesus” and each time they did the group made a loud cheer. I waited to see what they were going to do with the message of the exercise but when the last person had finished they all just walked away.

    I continued to walk around and found a self-serve pizza kitchen, which was made to make the people feel warm and cozy. It had beautiful tiles and a large serving area. Then the music began in another room as the worship service started. The band entertained people while all the other people remained in their designated areas.

    As I headed back towards the door I thought I had came in another man was walking out as well. It was Kevin James, the actor and comedian. I asked him if he would change my pants. He cracked up. I thought to myself, “I meet Kevin James for the first time and all can do is ask him to do is change my pants”. Then other actors began to come out the same door. Then I realized that I had come out a different exit from where I had parked. I went back in and walked around trying to find the door that I came in. I searched for some time before I finally found the door I was looking for. They had intentionally by design made it difficult, confusing, and misleading to exit their church. I knew I had to go home and warn my wife not to come here. It is an evil place.

    Meaning:

    Meaningless Activities

    In a dream, a parking lot is a place of arrival or exit. In this case I was arriving to see what was going on in this particular church. I parked near the most accessible entrance not for the convenience of entering as much as to make a quick exit.  The teens were doing an orchestrated dance being led by the children’s pastor. It struck me that the teens were being led by the children’s pastor. The teens should be growing up but they were being treated as six year old children. Everything activity was a pre-planed, orchestrated as an activity, with no room for Holy Spirit to lead believers by the Spirit.

    The Room

    Round Table and Chairs in Conference RoomThe first room I entered was the room for new members. They were seated at the table by a designated staff member. She was the “Groomer”. Her job was to monitor their attendance, provide them with orientation in their church rules, learn their dysfunctions, and prepare them to serve the needs of the church and direct them in doing so. This was standard operating procedure for everyone that wanted to become a member. No one who wanted to be a part of the fellowship could bypass their orientation. If a person wanted more responsibility and access to higher up leadership, the young lady first had to approve of them herself and report their progress back to the pastors. Every person’s faithfulness was measured as to how well they served in the church system. She used flirtation and sweet talk to hook these young men into doing what she needed them to do for the church.  No one dared say “No” to her or anyone in leadership. They could make it difficult for you.

    Dysfunctions

    Each young man had a dysfunction, which would be discovered and then passed onto the blonde headed woman.  People who have yielded to the Jezebel spirit will do all they can to discover a person dysfunctions in order to manipulate them to her needs. She will show her sweet, confidential side to gain their trust in her discovery process. She is a master manipulator, especially over men.

    The Young Girl

    The young child was cute and very popular within the fellowship. She was called upon at times to make fun of the perceived less spiritual people in other denominations. It was clever to employ a child in  a humorous way to make themselves feel better about their spirituality.

    The Blonde Woman

    The blonde headed woman represents Jezebel. The name Jezebel means “unhusbanded”. She loves to clone and create spiritual children to follow her in her idolatries. She sat in the dark room, hidden, with her back turned to the people. She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She chooses to surround herself with dysfunctional people, even more than she is, because they can easily be manipulated to do her bidding. She rules this church from behind the scenes, especially the pastor and other staff members. She has everyone in the church monitoring ever other person in the church without them really knowing her scheme. All her conversations are to glean more information about what the members are saying and doing. With this kind of information she can maintain her hidden power position by detecting any perceived threats. Anyone who disagrees with her will be dealt with swiftly and with severity. That’s the way she keeps the pulse in her kingdom.

    Wherever Jezebel rules in a church she will seek out the weak ones and use their dysfunctions to control them. She disguises her efforts behind an insincere compassion when trying to help them, but she is incapable of helping anyone but herself.  All her attempts to help a person will do more harm than good as she is a destructive counselor to all she ministers too.

    The Yellow Hose

    The game with the Y coupler and the yellow hose came across as shallow and insincere. It showed the ineffectiveness of game play in the churches today.  It was a fun activity but that was all it was. Although the kids made a natural connection they didn’t seem to make a spiritual connection to God at all. The presence of Holy Spirit inspired teaching was missing from the exercise. It was sad to watch the kids walk away without grasping the message of making the connection with Jesus is to build a life long relationship with Him and that requires they seek Him in their dedicated prayer time.

    Self-Serve Pizza Kitchen

    The self-serve pizza bar speaks of several things. The churches today are iconic symbols of self-worship. Most churches fine tune their message so as not to offend anyone. They want the attendees to feel warm and comfortable. For the church to stay open it requires money and people have money.  Almost everyone attending is self-serving in some form or fashion if they would be honest with themselves and God.  The concept of promoting a personal relationship with Jesus Christ isn’t at the heart of most churches today. It’s not mentioned, taught, nor is it encouraged by the majority of religions. The essence of Jesus Christ has been hijacked by man’s religion. With every breath and action, the members are deceptively taught that committing to the church (organization) is the same as committing to Christ. That giving tithe to it is the same as giving to Christ. This is evil, dangerous and propagates spiritual adultery. The leadership perpetuates this message to keep, control and feed off God’s sheep.

    Today, when the word “Church” is spoken people automatically think of a building. Many churches, like a harlot, offer something for everyone. The harlot church says, “Come, you can have whatever you want here. There’s no better place to be.  We have the best there is. It will cost you nothing.”  (Read the blog: http://seerofgod.com/archives/1639 The Enticement)

    In the thing called “Church” a person can have prominence, validation, identity, self-worth, self-confidence, self-righteousness and influence, etc. However, Zion isn’t an organization; it is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Zion is made up of believers who worship the Living God in Spirit and Truth. These are the ones who are the bride of Christ.

    The Band

    Some churches use church worship teams as a tool to attract (entice) people to come and to keep them once they do. The better the band the better most people will like the church services. I have heard many church attendees say, “I only come here for the music.” Building big worship teams has been a trend in the churches around the world for many years now. Just as the palm trees competed with one another in the blog, “The Enticement”, some churches compete with one another with their worship teams. There’s a difference between being entertained and tapping into a pure worshipful praise of our Lord Jesus Christ. I believe in the minstrel gifts and that most worship team members are faithful to their gift and love to worship the Lord.

    Playing or singing can become a form of self-serving if the person is doing it for the wrong reasons. Just because you like to do something isn’t enough of a reason to do it. Each ministry gift has to be continually submitted to the leadership of the Lord. In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus warned the ministers who had performed miracles, cast out demons and prophesied in His name, that He never knew them. He said to depart from Him and sentenced them to eternal darkness. I believe these ministers were victims of the church system and never developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They knew the actions of a minister, the theology and did great things as they made a name for themselves, but they never had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Exits

    exit sign smlIn the dream as I tried to leave the church but discovered they had purposely designed it to be difficult. The exits were hard to find, much like a big, multi-level mall is designed. They get the shoppers in but make it difficult to find the original point of entry. When a person enters a (joined) church they make you feel warm, welcomed and accepted. However, the acceptance will last as just long as you tithe, attend as many of their activities as possible, agree to everything leadership says and believes. There is zero tolerance for critiques of the church. Anyone, who questions the leadership is quickly singled out as a dissenter and labeled as a person to be watched more closely.

    Often people who want to leave are given the suggestion by the pastor that bad things are going to happen to them if they leave the covering of the church.  Phrases like, “The wheels are going to fall off!”, “Don’t leave your assignment!” or “You’ll lose your covering!” are an attempt to frighten people to stay.  It is a form of control and just like the dream showed it’s not easy to get out of the thing called church.  If they can’t control you then they automatically begin to try to destroy and defame the person.

    All the love they showed you was really fake love as it was based on acceptance based on performance to their standards. It’s love with a hook.  They will love you as long as you belong to their church, but once a person exits they become all but unknown to their former church members.  The Amish are known for the use of shunning to punish people who don’t comply with their doctrines. However, most other religions also employ shunning as well.

     Actors (Pretenders)

    As I walked out he was walking out the exit Kevin James, which is a very popular actor and comedian was walking out as well along with many other actors. The biggest role most people will ever star in occurs when they attend a church. Just about everyone puts on their best face as they pretend to be enjoying themselves so others won’t think they’re not living a great victorious Christian life. The church is filled with actors (pretenders) which aren’t truly interested in taking up their cross and following Jesus Christ. They are happy to attend and enjoy the social aspects of the church and all the things it offers but to do they have a pure commitment to Christ? That is the question. Anyone seeking Truth will find it. I heard the Lord say some time ago, “My bride comes not so much from the church (system) as from the world.”

    “For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders (actors). I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked.Ps. 26:3-5

    Summary

    The greatest deception ever placed upon mankind is the church system of which man has created. It is a counterfeit and a spiritually dangerous place to be. It has caused millions to commit spiritual adultery by demanding commitment and allegiance to it (the church system) instead pointing them to Jesus Christ. Instead of promoting Jesus Christ the person, it entangles people into legalism, dead works as it manipulates them to do what the leadership wants done.

    Any self-worship (doing things for self) is fleshly and not of God. If it isn’t of God then it is demonically influenced in some way or another. Jezebel used sedcution and deception to ascend to a position of power. She loves to play the role of the prophetess and have a following of loyal subjects willing to support her in her idolatry.

    Believers this is a serious matter to the living God as recorded in the following verses.

    ‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first. ‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. ‘I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. ‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. ‘And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.” Rev 2:19-23

    Someone once quoted, “The institutional church has killed two kinds of people: Those who do not believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ, and those who do.

    You certainly will find this critique of the church system troubling if you are reliant upon it for your livelihood, status, identity, validation or security but the Spirit of the Lord says, “COME”.

    Time is short and Christ is calling His bride unto Him. Will you heed His call are continue on the course you are on? It’s not easy for a person to leave what has been ingrained into their mind for so many years. Let Christ lead you to the Truth. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you and you will find a beautiful walk in the freedom of Christ.

    The five foolish virgins are made up of the church goers who do nothing more than maintain a general form of religion but deny the power. They spend no time building a personal relationship with the Lord and thus no oil or flask to carry the sustaining oil. Don’t continue be foolish, but go to the living God and ask Him if what I have written here is true. Read the scriptures carefully asking God to illuninate the true meaning to your spirit.

    “Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord. “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you. 2 Cor. 6:17

    If you ask, seek, and knock the door will be opened to you. Seek the truth and He will reveal it to you.

    After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, ” Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Rev 18:1-5
