It seems that the Almighty is patient when it comes to having a church that will actually learn His ways, believe Him and obey Him. The Church of Eden and the Children of Israel (the “church in the wilderness”-Acts.7:38) were raised up by the Lord to serve Him in obedience to His Word. They both failed by believing and obeying Satan. Next came the New Covenant Church established by the God of the Old Testament Himself by showing and teaching men the right way. Unbelievably, the church Jesus Christ Himself established succumbed to the lure of self-determination, even going so far as to divide itself into two groups. However, the spiritual umbilical connecting the two rebellious cults remained intact. As a result, the beliefs and customs of the mother whore–Catholicism, “Mystery” “Babylon”–continue to be believed and practiced by her “harlot daughters”–the Protestant denominations (Rev. 17:1-5). Because both mother and daughters continue to cling to their heathen beliefs and to interpret God’s Word to fit their respective theologies, what is called “the church” has become a two-headed, God-rejecting, soul-destroying spiritual disease that has infected every nation on earth with her Satan-inspired theology. Only a tiny rejected and despised remnant–God’s Very Elect–have stayed God’s course by believing and obeying His Holy Scriptures (Mat. 7:13,14).
Due to ignorance of or unbelief in God’s Word on the part of professing Christendom Satan has been able to wage an undetected war on those who call themselves God’s people. Because of Satan’s ability to operate freely while hiding in plain sight within the church, several ironies become evident: NEITHER THE VICTIMS NOR THE TERRORISTS KNOW THAT A WAR IS BEING WAGED. NEITHER THE VICTIMS NOR THE TERRORISTS KNOW THEY ARE VICTIMS AND TERRORISTS. NEITHER VICTIMS NOR TERRORISTS KNOW THAT THEY ARE ONE IN THE SAME PEOPLE. THE INSTITUTIONAL CHURCH WAGES WAR AGAINST HERSELF. Simply put, THE CHURCH IS UNWITTINGLY COMMITTING SPIRITUAL SUICIDE WHILE BELIVING SHE IS PLEASING GOD. Never underestimate the power of Satan who has deceived the whole world (Rev. 12:9).
If one could ask one million church members from around the world to identify “the church,” the consensus would be that the church consists of the people affiliated with Catholicism and Protestantism. As a result of this deadly error spiritual terrorism dominates the so-called “Christian world.” AND THOSE WHO OCCUPY THAT WORLD ARE OBLIVIOUS TO THE FACT THAT A WAR IS GOING ON INSIDE THEM AND THAT SATAN IS WINNING THE WAR. He has convinced billions of professing Christians that they are God’s people. Those individuals, believing that they are one with the Lord, in turn convince their churchmates that they also are God’s people. Being totally assured of their spiritual status, they send out missionaries to convert unbelievers into duplicates of themselves. All of this is done in a terrorist mode. The terrorist is that nice, caring person with that sweet personality punctuated by that equally sweet smile who goes to church several times each week, quotes Scripture, prays, etc. And it all began with a friendly, smooth-talking, God-quoting Serpent in the Garden of Eden.
