I need to remind website readers of an important fact before going forward with this series. “The church” referred to in the title refers to the religious system that is accepted as the same church established by the Lord’s apostles during their time of ministry. However, what is called “the church” today is in reality a counterfeit version of God’s true church. “The church” consists of billions of people world-wide while God’s church numbers only a few thousand. The purpose of this ministry is to highlight the difference between the two churches so that those in Satan’s church system (Catholicism/Protestantism) can know the truth about the Almighty and the life one must live in order to join Him in His kingdom at the return of His Son to earth. The reader must understand that the world, the nation and the church are at war. Everyone understands the world and national war that is taking place. The church, however, is unaware that she is at war. The irony is that she is unknowingly warring against herself. Another irony is that this same war is being waged within God’s true church which the so-called Christian world does not know exists. Let it be known that no one is exempt from the wiles of Satan. Let us now find out what is happening within “the church” in order to see how Satan is conducting this global spiritual conflict within his religious system.
Over the past two decades the United States has been at war with people known globally as “terrorists.” Everyone understands that what makes terrorism so terrorizing is the unknown. Terrorism’s victims do not know the identity of their enemy who are “hiding in plain sight” and are able to strike anywhere at any time. One moment people are happily going about their daily lives and the next moment dozens are dead, dying or maimed. No one saw or heard anything before everything blew up or the bullets started flying. In a terrorist war, the world changes in an instant, and always for the worse. A terrorist might be someone with whom we work, recreate, vacation, marry, etc. The children of terrorists might play with the children of their intended victims. Secretly, terrorists lives of deception, waiting for the opportunity to do as much harm as possible, often sacrificing themselves because they “know” that is what their god requires. Due to the information system that has now encircled the world, most people understand the whys and wherefores of the terrorism that is now taking place globally. However, few understand the terrorist activities being carried out within professing Christendom. Few know who the combatants are, why they are at war and the identity of their victims. The double irony concerning spiritual (church) terrorism is that neither the terrorists nor their victims know 1) who each other are or 2) that a war is taking place. Let us now study the unknown, home-grown, intra-church war that has been taking place within professing Christendom for hundreds of years. The truth will reveal the extent to which Satan rules professing Christendom.
As is the case with all terrorism, in order for it to work properly the terrorist must be accepted by his potential victims among whom he lives, works, plays, etc. He must be accepted by those around him as “one of us.” This fact was brought out in the episode that introduced Satan and his terrorist activities to the world.
Spiritual terrorism first raised its ugly head in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve experienced it not long after they were created. The problem then as now, is that by the time they became aware that they were at war the damage was done. As this study will reveal, spiritual terrorism is different from normal terrorism in that no one knows it exists, not even the terrorists who believe that they are pleasing their God. In the next posting we will see exactly how spiritual terrorism was introduced to mankind.
But before we go forward, another warning is in order. As the truth of the situation is laid out before you Satan will attack you in full force. He will tell you to stop reading, that the information is bogus. In order to accept what the Lord is telling you through me you must compare what is being read with all other information you have received through this website. In other words, STUDY GOD’S WORD. L.J.
