Apostles Today and Church Reform - Refrain From Familiar Spirits

Apostles Today | Church Reform
For the righteous living in the house of the lawless becomes a daily challenge of choice. For you are either a light of His grace or you will become a trophy of their boasting. This is the challenge God is placing before the church through apostles today.
 
For God sets the pattern for faith, but the disobedient will chime in with the sounds of their own righteousness. For even Satan used his charm and angelic wit to persuade those under his authority to follow his rule of logic in place of the order of God’s divine Oath.
 
Samuel who confirmed the first king of Israel into power warned of indifference to the will of God. King Saul followed the inclination of his passions for the love of man and opposed the love of God.
 
“For REBELLION is as the sin of WITCHCRAFT, and STUBBORNESS is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”   (1Samuel 15:23)
 
Rebellion being lawless to government stewardship and stubbornness is ones principle of religious passions. For King Saul offered his sacrifices but used his association with Samuel to rule.
 
“Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the LAWLESS and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;” (1Timothy 1:9-12)
 
Favouring Family Over Faith: God Is A Jealous God
 
God created adamites for His glory to possess all His things at the appointed time. But man desired his glory in the flesh now, to be free of authority and peer, and to have unrestricted access to God’s powers and to have liberty of unabated expressions and pleasure.
 
That is why Satan was confused at the idea of God suffering and restricting Himself. Believers today under the spell of prosperity wish to wiggle out from the yoke of the Oath of Christ. For we must suffer the powers of this world and the restricting of the imaginations to find our true rest and peace.
 
“For therefore we both labour and SUFFER reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.” (1Timothy 4:10)
 
The covenant of the cross is different than the covenant of Moses. For Moses’ covenant addressed those earthly things and temporary pleasures, what to eat where to live, who to marry and job security. But the cross removes the yoke of those temporary units of measure, for by Moses they were discerned to be clean or unclean.
 
The unit of measure of the cross is the substance of the soul which God says you will not find by the things of this world.
 
Even Moses saw the vanity of the world in the powers of Egypt and chose obedience to God over family and wealth.
 
“Choosing rather to SUFFER affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;” (Hebrews 11:25)
 
Why do believers today feel they can join faith with rebellion. Can’t you see that the hearts of the ungodly are manifested when they cast aside your earnest plea to faith. They bate you with kindness then hammer on you with reproof and rebuke for your faith.  Does the fountain send forth from the same faucet freshwater and salt?
 
The church needs to take seriously the words of our Lord when He spoke this challenge to the divide hearts of His time.
 
“ But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
 
 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loves fatheror mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.” (Matthew 10:33-40)
 
Abraham was separated from his father to pursue the true riches of God’s grace and he endured the criticism of those idol worshippers who assessed his faith in the false light of family and religion.
 
Moses was separated from the glory and honour of Egypt and you also have to consider which treasure you desire more.
 
The cross we bear is not warm and cosy but it hurts the ego and denies you the peace of this world.
 
Strange Gods: Those Familiar Religious Spirits
 
The church is seeking doctrines for the world’s honour. It was those doctrines of devils that bent the truth into the drive of the imagination. E.W. Kenyon contributed to this error and many are walking this path of derision. They justify their greed saying it is for God. Faith will not work with the spirit of this world nor will God confirm any ones greed.
 
These like Hagin, Copeland, Dollar, and their church children promote knowledge which will not labour with faith. These are strange gods as Jesus mentioned to the religious leaders of His time.  You are of your father the devil and his works you will do.
 
Part of the reformation of the church is the cleansing of these teachings which replace the true Christian priesthood with issues of personal needs and world outreach. This is not the gospel the apostles taught. 
 
Letter To Titus: Prioritize This Way
 
Sanctification of the church should follow this order beginning with recognizing the stewardship. “Paul a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ.”
 
Don’t start with food lines and orphanages to preach to, but start with government for order and fruit.
Titus
1:1 Stewardship
1:5 Callings
1:7 Growth
1:9 Evangelism
1:13 Separation and consecration
2:1 Family
3:1Church Outreach -Poor and Widows
 
We are NOT neglecting evangelism or the poor and needs of the saints. But true Reformation starts with the sanctified stewardship. Religious passions cannot be the voice for the church. The voice of the Lord for any direction for the church will come through the stewardship. God confirms these things by the witness He gives through dreams and visions and the callings.
 
“God also bearing them witness, both with SIGNS AND WONDERS, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?” (Hebrews 2:4)
 
The time is short and God has given many revelations over the past 30 years that verify this time and season we live in. Free yourself from those distractions of faith and avoid those thorns and briars. Be the good soil and rejoice in the Lord. His peace will be with those that trust Him.

God's Divine Order for His Spiritual Government in the Church of Christ
Learn both the roots of and why the denominational church system is responsible for the state the modern day church finds itself in today, far from the unity of the faith spoken of by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4.

The true church of Christ, however, is not in disarray. Having the foundation of God's single truth laid in their heats by called living apostles they stand strong unified in the faith as they walk in Spirit and in truth tethered to the record of Christ. In this article Satan's lie of unity in diversity is exposed providing the believer with a clear direction regarding the function and responsibility of church government.   more...

GOD
Gods? How Many? There are as many denominations in the world as there are people because every persons point of view or belief is different no matter what you believe in. Despite the similarity in perspective, people can never agree 100 % with someone else entirely. So, if there are 7 Billion people in the world, that means that there are 7 Billion denominations or Gods, fighting for the right to rule over each other and each individual wants to be on the top.   more...
Discernment
What is truth? Is an opinion any good if it is opposed? Does it devalue it? Yes. Opinions are not truth because they morph with the evolution of the character and testify to the fallen condition of man. God uses a different scale for judgment: Truth (Jesus Christ). When all use this for discernment everyone comes to the same conclusions. “One Lord, one faith, one baptism,” (Ephesians 4:5).   more...
