When the Holy Spirit earnestly calls in Rev. 18:4, “Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins and receive of her plagues..” He does not refer to a mere exodus from all inherited Roman Catholic Church structures, but also to a great exodus from Protestant, Catholic, and all other soul and spirit destroying doctrines, church norms, and forms.
To repent from all false doctrine and “churchism” as far as possible, is not an option. Paul warned in 1 Ths. 1:7-10, “[At His return,] the Lord Jesus [will be] revealed in flaming fire with His mighty angels, taking vengeance on those who do not know God, [those who rejected Jesus,] and on those who do not obey the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, [disobedient church Christians.] These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in That [One] Day, to be glorified in His saints… because [His true Gospel] was not believed…”
Paul repeated this grave warning in 2 Ths. 2:9-10, “The coming of the lawless one, [through the church systems that make God’s Word into false church doctrines and the power of the Holy Spirit into lawless spiritual manifestations, Mt. 7:21-14,] is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders — and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
The ingrained belief that the “church” “births” Christians or church members is true. But it is impossible for the church to “birth” living disciple-children of the Most High God. Jesus declared in Jn. 6:63, “It is the Holy Spirit Who gives life. The flesh [or man-made church dogma] profits nothing. The words that I [Jesus] speak to you are spirit, and they are life, [while church doctrines are the spirit of death, Jn. 10:10.]”
It is not enough to expose the true meaning of “church” opposed to Jesus’ “ecclesia” or assembly of true believers. Exposing the toxin of false church doctrine is also critical to the salvation, redemption, blessing, and spiritual and emotional growth of the body of Christ. Thus, Paul commanded in Eph.5:6-11, “Let no one deceive you with empty words… Do not partakers with them… Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
So, it profits no one to leave the church, the counterfeit of the ecclesia or assembly of believers, but to take the venomous doctrines of church Christianity wherever they go. This is what happened during the birth of Protestantism during the Reformation. Those leaders ‘reformed’ but never repented from the false church dogmas, norms and forms of their spiritual “mother,” the Roman Catholic Church. This is why all churches, mostly unknowingly, remain part of, and under control of the universal Christian religion, Roman Catholic Christianity; making millions more church members to tie to their “mother.”
However, Jesus never commanded His disciples to murder people for rejecting Him or to torture their enemies to death. He said, “Go, make disciples from all the nations [by preaching My True Gospel to them. Do not ‘Christen’ or make them into church Christians, but] baptize [My willing disciples] in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; teaching [these disciples] everything I, [Jesus] has said. And behold, [because of your obedience,] I Am with you always, even to the end of the world.”
It is not the “dispensing of God’s grace” through an unscriptural hierarchy of church clergy that keeps believers in the Spiritual Kingdom of God. These eisegetes, (those who practice the church’s tunnel vision of uncontextual interpretation of Scripture,) have absolutely nothing except death and cursedness to bring people.
Someone explained as follows, “Exegesis and eisegesis are two conflicting approaches in Bible study. Exegesis is the exposition or explanation of a text based on a careful, objective analysis. The word exegesis literally means “to lead out of.” That means that the interpreter is led to his conclusions by following the text.
The opposite approach to Scripture is eisegesis, which is the interpretation of a passage based on a subjective, non-analytical reading. The word eisegesis literally means “to lead into,” which means the interpreter injects his own ideas into the text, making it mean whatever he wants.” All church doctrines are based on Eisegesis. Hence, the many denominations or church divisions that sprang, (and is still springing) from Roman Catholic Christianity.
Everything believers receive from God, they receive through Jesus’ full atonement in their place, and by the power and revelation of the Holy Spirit, Who always glorifies Jesus and not people, (Jn. 16:14.) [This does not mean we must not respect people, their work, or anything good. We must “render to all their due… honor to whom honor,” (Rom. 13:7.)
On the other hand, the modern church does preach Jesus, but then they add their deadly false doctrines of control to enslave His blood-bought believers to their systems. Also seated in the church-mother fallacy, Evangelicals teach that as soon we do not attend church at least once a week, (and more so when we leave their church,) we ‘backslide’ and are ‘eternally lost.’
Churches also teach we must give our money to “the church” to be blessed. But as part of His full atonement for us, Jesus became a curse in our place so that we could inherit a complete spiritual state of blessedness in Him, (Gal. 3:10-14.) Actually, He did not become Satan Himself on the cross as the Charismatic Movement blasphemously teaches. This means all of humanity’s sin, bondage, and cursedness was “imputed,” “transferred,” or “laid upon” Him, Who took our place on Golgotha, (Jn. 1:29.)
Even giving “as the Holy Spirit leads” will not bless you; it will prove what is really in your heart, (2 Cor. 9:7.) Giving on all levels of life will glorify the Name of Jesus but will not bring you out of the cursed state of darkness, which befell Adam and Eve and all their natural descendants since the Garden in Eden. Despite all the verses that were based on the ousted, outward, Old Testament Law, (Heb. 8:13,) all the ‘giving’ in the world will not buy you shares in the blessed spiritual position, which Jesus bought for you with His own blood.
On the subject of “deliverance,” churches teach that, when Jesus called Lazarus from the grave, and told His disciples, “Loosen him [from the burial wrappings,] and let him go,” He was saying “the church” must ‘deliver’ believers from bondage to Satan. Hence, all the terrible destructive practices of money-making ‘deliverance ministries.’ But the context of the entire New Testament clearly says that, just as salvation and blessing, redemption in Christ was already completed in our place at the cross.
There is not an arm-wrestling contest for souls going on between Jesus and Satan. Col. 2:11-15, [At the cross,] Jesus “wiped out the handwriting of [Old Testament law] requirements… And He has taken [past tense] it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed [past tense, all] principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. Rev. 12:11, “And they [true believers] overcame [past tense] him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” Their testimony is what Jesus has done in their place. Col. 1:13 teaches, “He has [past tense] delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed [brought us into His spiritual] Kingdom... In Whom we have [present tense] the redemption through His blood, [seated in His] forgiveness of [all] sins.” True believers “were called out of [past tense] into His marvelous light.” At the moment when they accepted Jesus, they were spiritually removed from the power and control of the kingdom of cursedness and darkness, and wholly placed or spiritually “born into” Jesus’ Kingdom of Light, (1 Pt. 2:9-10.)
