Living Apostles Today | Restoring the Church Back to Her First Love

Apostolic governance is the door for the anointing of truth to teach the church, and in their absence, false doctrine, in whatever form it takes, is a barrier to grace. (Pexels)
 

The Great End Time Falling Away
By Apostle Eric vonAnderseck
 
The Great End Time Falling Away began as God re-introduced apostolic stewardship as a blessing for the church in these last days. God assigned the apostles as the standard bearer of the restored covenant of Jesus Christ, thus announcing a new season for distinction and separation as the church entered into a time of change.
 
The church cannot distinguish the face of Christ in His truth when apostolic stewardship is set aside. We can understand that apostolic governance is the door for the anointing of truth to teach the church, and in their absence, false doctrine, in whatever form it takes, is a barrier to grace, a barrier to faith, a barrier to the anointing. Believers cannot separate themselves to God to be cleansed from false doctrine when choosing to allow the barrier to remain.
 
The early apostles were on deck to point out the First Falling Away, which took place in the First 8th Week of God’s Enochian calendar. They warned about false ministers who had taken ownership of the gospel of Jesus Christ and substituted their own ideas and stewardship in place of God’s. As Paul wrote, “A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” (1 Corinthians 5:6)

Ministers today, who are not part of God’s new season of restoration, often point out that the church is not what it was before. They point to statistical data that supports the fact that a wide range of philosophical ideas have crept into the church in the absence of apostolic stewardship. For example they might quote from a Barna report:
 
54 percent of believers identify with postmodernist views
 
36 percent of believers associate with Marxism
 
29 percent of believers embrace ideas based on secularism
 
The problem is these ministers are protesting from the sidelines, reporting what everyone else sees. They are observing the shifts that take place in the false religious system and reporting on them. You’ll notice that the minister is reporting on a broken church he or she had a hand in building, and therefore they are still very much part of the problem. Their articles lack the divine wisdom to direct believers back to the covenant of Jesus Christ, hence all they can do is protest what God is doing.
 
The Season, The Delusion, and The Falling Away
 
The season, the delusion, and the falling away all go together. God always introduces a season of change, and those who don’t change with the season are those who fall away. The church has been functioning in the new apostolic age for over ten years, partaking of all that God has restored to the church.   
 
Once God re-introduced His anointed stewards of grace, the church was in a position to again discern Christ and His covenant. Those who are in Christ accept His headship and apostolic stewardship, they embrace the restored knowledge and true doctrine of Christ, they function in the covenant priesthood that adorns their faith, and they recognize the fruit of it.
 
God caused a massive shift away from prophetic ministry by restoring the true priesthood of the saints. By doing this God also re-established His charity in the spiritual sacrifices of prophecy, freeing each individual believer to steward the grace of God. The hold that ministers had over believers by false promise was broken and God’s people were freed to the anointing.    
 
Always remember: The knowledge you serve is the God you obey. So walk in the truth or Satan will rule your perception. God is once again making distinction between the record of man (which is a lie) and the record of Christ (which is the truth) so that the lie of one’s own signature and moral code no longer rules faith in the place of grace and truth.
 
During this season of change God has been pointing out the house of Baal, removing the veil of ignorance to allow believers to see the eye candy that dressed Baal and made the idol so appealing. The house of Baal is unfaithful love because it’s not expressing Christ. It’s refusing to bear children for the house of God, and the house of God will not bear children for the house of Baal.
 
These two kingdoms are two different vines. The house of Baal  is trying to discern those who are of the house of God by their own vine. The house of Baal has all kinds of vines that they planted in opposition to the true vine of Christ. Satan intended to overspread the whole world with his false knowledge just as he did in the Garden of paradise.
 
Jesus said, “I am the TRUE vine.” And also, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:1,5)
 
Darkness is a condition in which a person has no power to discern the true vine from the false vine, no power to weigh the knowledge he receives, and no power to answer the challenges of the defiled conscience. For this reason does God give stewardship as a gift to the church to engraft believers back into the vine of Christ.
 
True apostolic stewardship restores the church to the covenant and therefore stewardship is the eyes of the church. Truth restores your sight to see Christ. So then, this season of change is a season of testing hearts as God puts the choice before each believer, asking, “Do you love me more than these idols of the heart?”  As the choice is weighed upon the scale of His holiness a separation is taking place. God is separating the remnant to Himself. Hence we see an End Time Falling Away taking place in this Second 8th Week of God’s Enochian calendar.
