Let us understand that in this life God is in control to the extent that He chooses to be in control. Nothing happens that He either causes to happen or allows to happen. This includes those acts that take place in the realm of the miraculous, which includes conversion (called “salvation” by the church–see Hope and Salvation). Because God occasionally answers a church person’s prayer, many people are spiritually dead while “knowing” that they are at one with Him. The miracle recipient and those of like belief are totally fixated on God’s act of grace and do not understand that there is a dark side to the miracle, that Satan is always working to keep their eyes on the “headline” and off God’s fine print. My job is to expose that dark side to those who are interested in God’s Truth. I love what I do because I know what the future holds for me. However, in this life my calling brings much ill will toward me, which is exactly what God warned would happen. In this area only one man will associate with me spiritually. Though I am well known due to may newspaper articles, I am avoided like a leper when in the public. One “Christian” hide from me for fear that I would speak to her. I have had people I know point me out to those around him as I entered a restaurant. I once was entering a room where people were standing and talking. As I came through the door someone said: “And there he is now.” Undoubtedly they had been discussing my recent newspaper article. Needless to say, no one spoke to me or indicated that they knew me personally. Kind words are not merely “few and far between,” they are non-existent. My only spiritual brother is treated the same way by everyone who knows his beliefs. The Lord warned anyone who would follow Him to “… count the cost” of doing so. Serving Him His way is not for those who want to be liked. The opposite is true for those who reject God’s fine print. The Institutional Church is large, politically powerful and accepted at all levels of society.
Billions of supposedly “saved” people have unknowingly taken Satan as their god because they do not see the connection between God’s kindness and His command to obey His Law. God sends sunshine and rain, which are necessary for life, upon all people. But few are His people (Mat. 7:13,14). When a man is “saved” or receives a miracle in his life the tendency is for him to do more of what he has been doing–more church going (at least two times per week as one pastor said), more Bible reading (two daily chapters instead of one), more praying (ten minutes instead of five), more giving, more smiling, more witnessing, etc. Those are all necessities designed to draw the miracle recipient deeper into Satan’s dark web known as “Christianity.” Sin, as defined by the Institutional Church, is not going to church enough, not reading the Bible enough, not celebrating the Sunday Sabbath, Christmas and Easter (see God’s Holy Days). God’s definition of sin is found in 1 John 3:4: “To transgress (break) the Law is sin, for sin is the transgression of the Law.” The church nailed that Law to the cross, thereby eliminating God’s definition of sin, which enabled her to define sin. As a result we have hundreds of versions of good and bad, each with its own organization, leadership, orthodoxy, etc. God said there was only one true church–those He calls His Very Elect, His little flock, His remnant. He prophesied that few would enter its narrow gate and walk its narrow path, and that many would enter Satan’s wide, easy gate and walk its broad path. Not surprisingly, He was right. For proof, look in the phone book under the heading of “CHURCHES”).
In John 5:14 we find Jesus warning a miracle recipient about Satan’s dark side. Here we find Him talking to a man He has healed of an incurable disease at the Pool of Bethesda. He tells him how he must conduct his life as a result of his miraculous healing: “Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you”–the dark side of his healing. He said the same thing to a prostitute whom He had dealt with. Note that He did not tell either of them that in the future they would be able to sin and get away with it because of His death, and that then they would only need to repent after each sin in order to remain in good standing with His Father and Himself.
Like most of God’s Truths, the dark side of miracles remains unknown in professing Christendom because parishioners are not told, nor do they learn on their own, what God says about sinning following an act that reveals His love for mankind–HE FORBIDS IT (Rom. 3:4,6,31; 6:2,15; 7:7,13; 9:14) Please study these references carefully to see the connection between sin and breaking the Law (the Bible from Genesis to Revelation). The Apostle Paul had to deal with the same problem we in God’s ministry deal with today–the belief that sin is inevitable, therefore Jesus died so that “sinners saved by sin” can reject His Law, obey Satan AND GET AWAY WITH IT. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS BY AN EX-MISSIONARY. I was told by another ex-missionary: “It’s too much trouble to obey God.” These two church-defined, self-proclaimed “ministers of righteousness” remain oblivious to Satan’s deadly dark side because they do not believe God’s fine print. They believe only His headlines. As a result both are among the earth’s seven billion plus “walking dead.” This includes those in the church.
By allowing church people to experience miracles in their lives God is testing them to see if they will continue to serve the gods of their church forefathers or turn to Him. Because the world, including the church world, has never heard God’s Truth, it is assumed that what is preached and taught is His Word. Nothing could be further from the Truth. This ministry continually warns parishioners that they are getting what they pay for–ear-scratching, ego-salving wishful thinking presented as “the Word of the Lord.” Their hirelings will tell them whatever keeps the pay checks coming, which is a recitation of the doctrines of the cult to which they belong. Not one these self-professed “ministers of righteousness” would dare tell his congregation God’s Truth, nor will they allow a Christian minister to do so. L.J.
