Proud to Be an American…..NOT
Christians are proud to be an american, or a Russian, or British, Canadian, German etc. Or Proud to be a republican, proud of their jobs, their standing in society. Proud of how they view themselves, how their friends view them, how the world sees them, how they see the world. Proud of their money. Proud of what they have accomplished. Etc. etc. etc.. But pride and Paycheck is the root of all evil. They are trying to be a Christian and Something Else. They are Hypocrites. They are Adulterers, Fornicators. They are cheating on The Christ.
If you are a Christian and something else then you are an adulterer:
For whoever is ashamed of Me (does not put Christ way ahead first) and My words (way ahead of any other words) in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels-Mark 8-nkjv.
Christ calls people who are Christians and something else Adulterers because they are cheating on Christ.
Jesus said: No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. Now the Pharisees derided Him. And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God-Luke 16-nkjv.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also-Matthew 6-nkjv. (Your treasure will be in hell)
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”(The Holy Spirit inside of you is in love with you and your are cheating on Him). But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up-James 4-nkjv.
If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him-1 John 2-nkjv.
You cannot be a Christian AND something else.
This entire world and all it has: governments and institutions are owned and operated by satan. So you must realize the world system of things is evil and you must be a light in this darkness. Do people think you are insane because you give way too much time and money and effort to the work of The Christ? They should! Is everyone-even your own Pastor, Church Members, and family-disgusted by what you do for Jesus and because you act like Jesus? Do people hate you because you Teach True Christianity? If people hold these things against you and ridicule and torture you then you quite probably walk with Jesus. If people think you are reasonable, normal and acceptable then you walk with satan.
The more you think and talk and behave like Jesus the more satan will hate you and assault you, and the more people will hate you and torture you. This is only obvious and logical. Then satan will be using your Pastor, church members, family, friends, co-workers, and loved ones in an effort to get you to stop Being Jesus and working for Jesus. To get you to cower down or weaken so that you will do nothing for Christ or force you to be like everyone else. Satan fights to get you back where you were, walking the line for satan, being a model citizen, being a clone.
You will be abused and spat upon-but such is how they treated The Christ. And why did they hate Jesus? Because Jesus acted like Jesus. Jesus was being Jesus and doing the work of Jesus. Jesus thought and did and spoke just like Jesus. It is extremely unpopular to Be Jesus and Do the Work of Jesus-and Jesus knows this. DO YOU KNOW THIS!!!
Have you ever seen the rain come down on sunny days? Well such is the life of a Christian. Much of the time it is the sun coming down on cloudy, rainy days. And there are times-even extending to years-were there is little to no sun at all-just clouds and darkness, and rain. And rarely no clouds or no rain at all.
Do not expect Jesus to rescue you every time. Look at Paul. Paul was whipped, stoned, beaten, imprisoned, and finally executed. All because he was being Jesus and was doing the work of Jesus. But you as a Christian must be Jesus and do the work of Jesus and suffer like Jesus.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, IF INDEED WE SUFFER WITH HIM, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us-Romans 8-nkjv.
For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake-Philippians 1-nkjv.
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors(false preachers and teachers-overwhelming Christianity) will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived-2 Timothy 3-nkjv.
You as a Christian suffer for the evil of others-not trying to stop them, but trying to Teach them True Christianity. And do not shrink away from pain. For what makes you a good person? Your desire to suffer willingly for the evil of others-just like Jesus. To help others through your suffering as you bear witness of what Jesus would do.
Jesus was both a doormat and a bulldozer. Yes-be a wimp as the world sees it-do not defend yourself or stand up for yourself-but instead defend Jesus and True Christianity. But remember: no pride. Being proud to be a Christian or saying that you are proud to be a Christian is getting satan to help you to be a good Christian and saying that the devil is helping you to be a good Christian. Pride is of satan. Pride is what you feel and have as you do satans will. Pride is the root of all evil. It is pride that separates the Christians from the non-Christians. And the Christians have none to little pride. People will make fun of you-ridicule you for your lack of pride and say you have no backbone. But they will say you have enormous backbone when they hear you teach Christianity and you will thereby terrify them.
So what is it you are to be instead of having pride? The opposite of pride: meek. Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth-Matthew 5-nkjv. Look at me. I have been hurt and abused all my Christian life-and mostly by Christians. This is a good thing. It is what happens when you are being Jesus and doing the work of Jesus. But still I am not an example. Jesus is the only example. Do not attempt to be like me-be like Jesus. I am way far from being enough like Jesus to be an example-and so is everyone else.
But forget things like patriotism-you are a servant of Jesus not of the world. What will you do? Go fight, die, hate, and kill for your country? Or fight, live, love and die for Jesus? Would Jesus grab a gun a go fight and kill? Have the eyes of Jesus. See everything as Jesus sees it. And talk, think, and do as Jesus.
We are all just a vapor on this earth. What we own and have-vapor. We are all going to die or be raptured. All that matters is Jesus and people. This world is going to disappear with the lusts, passions and desires. And abandon selfish Christianity. In selfish Christianity you say in your heart that you only care about yourself and what God can do for you and your loved ones. You are going to heaven the rest of the people can go to hell. We must love. Self-sacrifice instead of self-righteousness. Save as many as we can, teach, pay those that Teach True Christianity and help people.
What do we have to do with helping non-Christians act like Christians? This is ridiculous and preposterous. Helping non-Christians to think they are good people will damn them. Make them Christians first then teach them to be Jesus and do the work of Jesus. What is all this with Christians trying to create a good decent world? This is trying to make satan good and is a harmful waste of time. Instead make them all true Christians and then you will have a good decent world. But not through politics or government or laws or rules-but through salvation and being Jesus, through doing the work of Jesus. The idea of getting the damned to be good is once again just selfish Christianity. It is saying that we do not care what happens to them just as long as we have a nice life, job, neighborhood, town, country. And you want to control the non-Christians just so you and your friends and family can have a nice life.
The church today has a reputation of being alive but is dead-of being awake but is asleep. What we have in the world today known as Christian fundamentalism and by other names is just a mixing of Christianity with Judaism and the world. Trying to use and please people in all three areas because all three areas are very interesting and exciting. Apparently Christians feel that Christianity is not enough excitement and interest by itself. This is adultery: you cannot be a Christian and follow Judaism at the same time-they contradict each other. You cannot be a Christian and of the world at the same time-they contradict each other.
Has the spirit come upon you? And I am not talking about speaking in tongues. And I am not talking about feelings. I am asking if another person has jumped inside of you. Jumped inside your body, your soul, your spirit. That person being The Holy Spirit of God. Then you have Jesus inside of you-living with you. Jumped inside of you so that you are saying: what is this? There is another person inside of me.
Yes-demon possession is like that too. There is The Spirit of God and the demons of satan. So how do you tell the difference? One acts like Jesus-the other does not. One does the work of Jesus-the other does not.
Break the rules. Christianity is not about rules-ever! Not about The Ten Commandments-ever! The Ten Commandments and rules are for those not walking in The Holy Spirit. Anyone not walking in The Holy Spirit is under The Ten Commandments and is under condemnation.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit-Romans 8-nkjv.
A Christian is to do good-not evil. Do not think in terms of rules or laws or The Ten Commandments but think in terms of good and evil.
So how then do you walk in The Holy Spirit instead of in the flesh? You must learn to not concern yourself with The Ten Commandments and rules. To worry about such things will cause you to walk in the flesh. To follow The Ten Commandments and rules will put you under the curse of God.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules); for by the works of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) no flesh shall be justified. For I through the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) died to the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), then Christ died in vain-Galatians 2-nkjv.
Foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth. This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh(The Ten Commandments and rules, and worldly thinking and actions)? Have you suffered so many things in vain–if indeed it was in vain? Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), or by the hearing of faith? For as many as are of the works of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) are under the curse; But that no one is justified by the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.” Yet the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) is not of faith, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), having become a curse for us that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law(The Ten Commandments and rules). But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. Therefore the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor(The Ten Commandments and rules). For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized(been Born Again by The Holy Spirit coming into you) into Christ have put on Christ-Galatians 3-nkjv.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage(The Ten Commandments and rules, and worldly thinking and actions). Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised(try to follow The Ten Commandments and rules), Christ will profit you nothing. And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised(tries to follow The Ten Commandments and rules) that he is a debtor to keep the whole law (follow The Ten Commandments and rules without a single flaw). You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law(The Ten Commandments and rules); you have fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump(false preachers and teachers corrupt all of Christianity). I have confidence in you, in the Lord, that you will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is. And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision(trying to follow The Ten Commandments and rules), why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased. I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off! For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh(trying to follow The Ten Commandments and rules, and worldly thinking and actions). For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law(The Ten Commandments and rules). And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit-Galatians 5-nkjv.
Now many say that we are saved by faith and then afterwards we are to follow The Ten Commandments and rules. That is what Paul is teaching against here. That we are permanently free from The Ten Commandments and rules. And as Paul said:
Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh(trying to follow The Ten Commandments and rules, and worldly thinking and actions)?-Galatians 3-nkjv.
And following the flesh is to be under The Law-The Ten Commandments and rules.
For we-after becoming Born Again-seek to become righteous. for if righteousness comes through the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), then Christ died in vain-Galatians 2-nkjv.
So when trying to become righteous The Ten Commandments and rules and worldly thinking and actions fight against us, to destroy us, to put us back under bondage so that we cannot be free to be good and to do good. For becoming Born Again does not make you righteous but is a starting point.
You are deceived by false preachers and teachers because you do not Truly know and understand The Gospels. You are relying on others to tell you The Truth. You are fooled by the popular, materialistic, fun, rule oriented Christianity. And those who do know The Truth believe that you cannot handle The Truth. So they therefore do not speak The Truth or they tone The Truth way down. They believe that their church will fire them if they speak or stress The Truth. Or the school they teach at will fire them. Or they will lose the all important respect of their peers. For True Christianity is very, very, very unpopular among Born Again Christians.
Christians need to assure the pastors and the teachers that they can speak The Truth, and speak it boldly, without fear of losing their jobs. This is difficult when 95% of their supporters (Born Again Christians) do not like The Truth, and are afraid of The Truth. So then it is necessary to speak The Truth boldly anyway.
Christianity has become just like politics with politicians fighting for your vote. The result is that just like with politicians, pastors and teachers constantly speak in buzz words and buzz phrases. So just like with politicians they speak in lies, and exaggeration. Never willing to tell you the whole truth about Christianity in order to maintain their positive thinking image. By definition politicians are liars. And by Christians speaking, acting, and thinking like politicians by definition Christians have become liars. In God we trust. But we can trust others through God.
I am not at all saying that the pastors or the teachers are not true Christians. Nor am I saying that the pastors or the teachers do not love you or care about you. I am saying that they have been caught up in the game of professional Christianity. Doing what is most popular at the moment in order to be popular themselves. They believe that not telling The Truth is a fair exchange for doing some good and being popular. After all they have to make a living. And after all Pride and Paycheck are worth going to hell for.
And for many towing the party line is essential to job security. And by party line I mean denominations or peers where Christianity is being treated as if it were a political party. Everyone being religiously correct. Everyone making sure they think alike, talk alike and follow the same rules. Turning Christians into clones instead of individuals. This is the same as the world does in all things such as politics.
Why do not Christians discuss Christianity in casual conversations? I mean truly discuss Christianity? In personal conversations or on chat lines etc.. And I am including Christians talking to Christians. Do Christians find Christianity to be too boring to talk about? Or do they find Christianity too controversial to discuss? Are you not once again walking in the flesh and once again on your way to hell?
For when we were in the flesh(not walking in The Holy Spirit), the sinful passions which were aroused by the law(The Ten Commandments and rules) were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. But now we have been delivered from the law(The Ten Commandments and rules), having died to what we were held by(The Ten Commandments and rules) , so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter(The Ten Commandments and rules)-Romans 7-nkjv.
Who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant(Christianity), not of the letter(The Ten Commandments and rules) but of the Spirit; for the letter(The Ten Commandments and rules) kills, but the Spirit gives life. But if the ministry of death(The Ten Commandments and rules), written and engraved on stones, was glorious, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation(The Ten Commandments and rules) had glory, the ministry of righteousness(walking in The Holy Spirit) exceeds much more in glory-2 Corinthians 3-nkjv.
Once again I say to you who have evil in your minds and hearts. Never, ever, ever, tell anyone that what I teach is that it is o.k. to do evil, to do whatever you want, that it is a free for all, chaos. Have you not heard or read anything I have said? I teach to walk in The Holy Spirit. Do you have no true faith at all? Do you think The Holy Spirit is a joke, a fanatasy? Would The Holy Spirit lead you to do evil? By your accusations against what I teach you are saying that there really is no Holy Spirit to guide us into righteousness. You are saying that since there is not really any Holy Spirit that we must use The Ten Commandments and rules in order to do good and to be good. You are making things the same as in The Old Testament. You are making things as if Jesus never came at all. You are committing blasphemy against The Holy Spirit.
He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned-Matthew 12-nkjv.
