“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14)
You may have noticed that this article has a somewhat blunt title. But it’s appropriate, and, since Scripture is far MORE graphic and effusive about the topic, perhaps even a bit of understatement.
What is “the church”? And should Torah-observant Believers in the Most High want anything to do with it?
The history of the paganized Roman “church” is clear, and often revolting, albeit too often ignored or shrouded in deception. Over a millenium before the “One, True, Universal, and Catholic” church brought the world the Inquisition, it literally outlawed the observance of the Biblical Sabbath, and the attempt to keep the moedim, or Appointed Times, that YHVH Himself said we were to keep “forever.”
The Council of Laodicea decreed the following in AD 364:
Canon XXIX: “Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord’s Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.”
(A mere paragraph or even a long article on the pagan history of ‘the Church’ cannot even begin to LIST the crimes on that score; suffice it to say that libraries of books on the subject only begin to outline the sordid story. Sadly, however, there is “nothing new under the sun.” Or the sun-god.)
And, yes, there have been other attempts at “reformation” over the past 500 years or so. But for the most part, such attempts have fallen far short of true tshuvah, or RETURN to YHVH and His Word as Written – from shellfish to Sabbath. And so the promised regathering remains in the future as well, probably after the plagues take their toll. Which is why the message of “repentance” is increasingly urgent!
Lately it seems more and more obvious that to follow YHVH and not the “traditions of men” – whatever they may be morphing into – will get one labeled “intolerant”, or worse. How dare we reject what He calls “abomination!” Recently the so-called “vicar of christ” was in two of the world’s most pagan megacities, proclaiming both a new (or is it Olde?) religion of Gaia-worship in the Name of “Climate Science.” And at the very same time he hypocritically proclaimed to respect “freedom of religion”. “Chrislam,” maybe, but certainly not His Word as Written!
The Waste-stream media ignored the incredible Orwellian contradictions of those two politically-correct agendas, of course:
In those same transparently socialist and faux-Scriptural speeches came calls for “fundamental and effective agreements” under the guise of “international law” to push the Bogus Science of man-made global warming. Although the buzzwords have been changed to safeguard the lie – since NO one still believes that anybody’s “carbon footprint” is going to result in catastrophic climate meltdown after almost two decades of worldwide cooling. And a pope who preaches “sustainable development” and green religion while burning the “carbon equivalent” of 500,000 pounds of coal in his wide-body 777-200 en route to the sales pitch is a shameless hypocrite to boot.
The problem is that the Global Green Religion will be enforced at the barrel of a gun. Whether it’s “carbon taxes” that will further devastate the poor (and arguably freeze and starve many in the years to come) or criminal sanctions for those that dare to exercise “liberty” in the face of those false gods, what is being pushed is the opposite of religious freedom, in spite of the lies.
The True Messiah, who “came to do the Father’s will”, said He would not change a single letter of His Torah so long as “heaven and earth” still existed. They still do, and those two witnesses of Deuteronomy 30 warn against such Evil. There is a historic, and utterly antithetical to Scripture, reason why ‘popes’ who claim a false authority to twist Scripture in the name of “another jesus” wear a special hat. It is in the shape of a fish, and represents the demonic fish-god, ‘dagon’.
Warnings and consequences of turning to false gods, and replacing His commandments for worship with others are literally “legion”. The entire chapter of Deuteronomy 13 is about what we are to do when confronted with a false prophet, who “speaks what [YHVH] did not tell him to speak,” while encouraging obedience to another god “whom your fathers did NOT know.”
The prophet Ezekiel (chapters 8 and 9) teaches us that we are to “sigh and cry” at the abominations being done. And the warning of judgment for idolatry is to “begin at My sanctuary!”
But many of us were raised in the idolatry of the Whore, and the idolatry of a sun-god-day, by a whole series of false prophets, and false ‘ church fathers’ who should have known better, but had themselves inherited lies. And it’s far too late to “put out” one or even a few idolators from ‘the camp.’ It is clearly no longer “His camp”, but the world’s. Our mandate is therefore different. “Come out of her, My people,” so that you do not participate in her sins, and thus her coming plagues.
There is an ecumenical “unity” movement coming, and it will not be limited to just “chrislam”. Nor will it be voluntary – any more than such ‘reforms’ have been in the past!
This evil is hardly limited to a pagan pied piper pope, or wanna-be emperors from Washington. It extends throughout the 501c(3), corporate faith-based creations of the prince of this world to the lowest levels of ‘churches’ which fail to “teach my people the difference between the clean and the unclean.”
And the deception to come is the greatest in human history. Which is downright mind-boggling.
So do not be fooled! And this is no time to keep silent!
