God’s Battle Plan

1 Comment


My previous article outlined the Islamic Battle Plan for total world domination that was prepared and distributed by the Muslim Brotherhood. QUESTION: is it working? Today, throughout Europe, Africa, the middle and East Asia there is an unprecedented explosion of Islamic Ideology. In these regions it is obvious that they are achieving their goal of domination, through gaining control in governments and with the establishment of Sharia Law together with the regular law in many of these countries.

The most valuable tool that a Commander has with which victory for his battle force can be assured is – Intelligence. A force no larger than a Company or the size of an army can almost be assured of victory if they know the enemies battle plan: the size of the force he will be facing, where they are located, and the weapons that the enemy will be using then the battle is 90% won.

In battle planning this is known as having inside information about the enemies “Order of Battle”. That is just what the Muslim Brotherhood has given us when “Project” was uncovered.  But, unless this valuable piece of intelligence is use against him, their battle plan will be successful. Now that we know the what, where, when, and how of the enemies plans we can effectively counter his plans.

Today in America it is clear that the enemies of Christianity starts at the Office of the President of the United States along with a tidal wave of obstruction flooding from both Houses of Congress along with the legislative bodies in each state. Their attacks on Christianity are openly supported by a radical liberal press, a complacent and compliant populace, and a church that is spiritual DEAD and is enshrouded in grave clothing of religion and traditions of men. We see this same condition existing in Israel at the time when Jesus was ministering, it was so rampant and devastating that he warned the people of the deception and publically exposed those in positions of authority:

  • Mark 7:13
  • Matthew 23:23-28.

Israel was under the oppressive rule of Rome, supported with a compliant religious leadership, yet Jesus with less than 90 men was able lay the foundation for an eternal Kingdom – the Kingdom of God.

The ministry of Jesus then and today is still God’s divine “Order of Battle”, God’s blueprint for the Church that it may be a location for people to come to receive a personal manifestion of God’s grace available for all who call upon the name of the Lord in Heaven while still living here on Earth.  Jesus, the Son of God and the Son of Man walked and ministered in divine authority as the last Adam. He was establishing himself as the future ruler of heaven and Earth, ministering as the mature son of God:

  • Romans 8:19 – Jesus “the first fruit”, was God’s Ambassador sent into Satan’s kingdom to represent the Kingdom of Heaven.

Jesus was not willing to establish His Kingdom within the kingdom of darkness; his purpose was to reveal to the world an alternative. He also had the responsibility of training the future leadership (mature sons of God) of the Church: the twelve disciples, as well as 70 others who were to carry on the ministry that He had begun.

So that we do not become lost in the theology remember this is about God’s Battle Plan, a plan that WILL NOT fail when properly executed. Jesus knew His enemy and was well versed, trained as God’s Ambassador, in the weapons of His warfare. While it is true that Jesus was the Son of God, it must be remembered that His ministry was as the Son of Man and the weapons he used are still available today, and we have two additional weapons that Jesus had to die in order for us to have available.

Before we look at the additional weapons that have been made available to the believer, we need to review the ministry of Jesus:

His weapons:

  1. trusting God
  2. the Holy Spirit
  3. his spoken word (his proclamation of the love of God for all mankind that was honored with signs and wonders following)

His commission:

  1. destroy the works of the devil
  2. expose false teaching and hirelings
  3. establish the foundational doctrine for the Church
  4. train up the leadership and workers of the new Church (Ambassadorial training)

In the Gospels we see that Jesus choose out twelve men and He lived with them 24/7, He was “fathering” them. Bringing them up, equipping them, just a father brings up his children. Teaching them by example and when they were ready allowing them to do the work on their own. Jesus sent his disciples on ahead to proclaim that the Kingdom of Heaven was a hand, and to perform the same works that He was performing – Matthew 10:5-8.

Jesus knew that the Church would need to understand that they also  were empowered and required to do his work as well. To ensure this He also taught seventy others and sent then out in advance as well – Luke 10:1-17.

During his ministry he also taught what is to be the foundational doctrine of the Church – the Doctrine of Christ.  Today very little if any of His doctrine is taught in the Church today, instead the ministers preach a gospel of appeasement.

  • Hebrews 6:1-2

Earlier I mentioned that believers, “The Church”, have been given two additional weapons so that  we may be the conduit or vessel through which the blessing of the “Kingdom of Heaven” may come to others. The first of these is so critical that the current President of the United States demands that all replicas of it “the cross” must be covered up  or removed before he will speak at that location. He use as an excuse that he does not wish to offend other religions. The only “RELIGION” that is offended by the Cross is Islam, why is that. The following scriptures explain their fear of the Cross of Jesus Chrsit.

THE POWER OF THE CROSS

1st Corinthians 1:17-18, Galatians 5:11, Galatians 6:12, Galatians 6:14, Ephesians 2:16, Philippians 2:8, Philippians 3:18, Colossians 1:20, Colossians 2:14, Hebrews 12:2

The second weapon that has been given to support and aid the Church in this warfare is the shed precious blood of our savior Jesus. There are 82 references to blood in the New Testament here are only a few which apply directly to Jesus.

THE POWER OF THE BLOOD

Matthew, 26:28, Acts 20:28, Romans 3:25, 1st Corinthians 10:16, 11:27, Ephesians 1:7, 6:12, Colossians 1:14, 20, Hebrews 9: 7, 12, 14, 1st Peter 1:19, 1st John 1:7, 5:8, Revelations 7:14, 12:11, 19:13

The Church, the body of the Lord Jesus Christ, has been told to train as a soldier would with the weapons of our warfare so that it may be said of us that we have staid the course, we have fought the good fight of faith having manifested the reality of the Kingdom of Heaven.

2nd Timothy 2:3-4 (training), 2nd Corinthians 10:40, Ephesians 6:13-18 (weapons), Acts 5:39, 1st Timothy 6:12 (fight of faith)

Whenever an individual enlist in any branch of the Armed Forces in any country they must go through a training phase. This usually consists of at least two phases and in some cases more than 3 or 4 phases. Each of these are designed to train the individual in their specialty. In the Church we have this as well, but with a totally different emphasis. Returning to the ministry of Jesus we see a number of things that are NOT present in the Church today.

  1. Schools of Ministry – devoted to making disciples not with just teaching, but with actual hands on training and experience.
  2. Ministry to the multitude: meeting their needs

Why, because we no long recognize or acknowledge those ministry gifts that were given to the body of Christ, by Jesus for that purpose. I am speaking of the fivefold ministry of Ephesians 4:11-16. Satan working through the egos of men and the traditions of religion has been able to emasculate todays Church and has left it empty and barren, with a form of godliness but without the true power of God. The real power, the same power and more than Jesus had is available for today’s Church, but only when they have studied, trained, and been commissioned as an “Ambassador for Christ“.  Just as Jesus was God’s Ambassador, the members of the body of Christ must study, be trained and equipped, and then be commissioned as an Ambassador for Christ.

Can you say that your home or Church/Fellowship is a “KINGDOM OF HEAVEN EMBASSY” with all of the blessings and riches therein being available to everyone?  The Book of ACTS was the first training school for the body of Christ, and today there is another school patterned after it and Holy Spirit lead to train and  equip the believers to be Ambassadors for Christ: it is even named after that first school:

Ambassadors for Christ Training School (A.C.T.S.)

LIGHT vs DARKNESS

Can there be a union or
melding of Christianity (light) and Islam (darkness)?

Chrislam began in Nigeria in the 1980s, and Chrislamic ideas have spread throughout much of the world. The essential concept of Chrislam is that Christianity and Islam are compatible, that one can be a Christian and a Muslim at the same time. Chrislam is not an actual religion, but rather is a blurring of the differences and distinctions between Christianity and Islam in an attempt to conceive what will become the “One World Religion” of Revelations.

Advocates of Chrislam like to point out that Jesus is mentioned 25 times in the Qur’an, and that Christianity and Islam having similar teachings on morals and ethics. They feel that if the two largest monotheistic religions to unite and the unification will bring about world peace.

While the term “Chrislam” is currently a major buzz word in almost all of the various religious and secular media there is little understanding of the doctrine upon which it is based. Right now what people need to understand what concessions “Christian” denominations and Churches are goint to have to make in order for there to be a “unification” of Christianity with Islam (note I did not say a unification of Islam with Christianity). There is grave danger at the end of this road of appeasement.

What this will require of these denominations and Churches is a renouncing of the basic principles of the Christian Faith and a virtual surrendering to Islam. The Islamic community, locally and internationally, are more than open for Christians to open up their facilities to Muslims. But you can be sure that it will not be the other way around. We will not see mosques placing Bibles within their facilities nor opening up their facilities to Christians, until those advocates of Chrislam swears allegiance to Islam and Allah. This is because it falls within the overall strategy of islamification. The Qur’an maintains that Allah is the only God and that He is sovereign over the entire earth. Hence, He is sovereign over churches and their facilities. It therefore only makes sense that the worship of Allah, as taught in the Qur’an, would slowly extend into these facilities. The end-game, of course, is that churches would transform their doctrines and theologies to conform to Islam. The most crucial doctrine of the Christian faith is rejected in Islam. As a result, the two religions are absolutely not compatible.

Christian doctrines that would have to be set aside:

  • The doctrin of the Trinity
  • The doctrine of the hypostatic union of Christ—where Jesus is fully God and fully Man, two natures in one person
  • That Jesus was the Son of God
  • The virgin birth
  • That Jesus died on the cross to redeem all mankind
  • Jesus was not crucified and His blood has no special significance
  • The doctrine of salvation by faith—that entrance into Heaven is based upon grace and not by personal merit.

Islam adamantly rejects the deity of Christ. The Qur’an declares the idea that Jesus is God to be blasphemy (5:17). Belief in the deity of Christ is considered shirk “filth” to Muslims. Further, Islam denies the death of Christ on the cross (4:157-158).

Chrislam corresponds to the strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood. A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood, for example, has written: “The ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” Hence, this broadly defined strategy sees multi-culturalism and religious pluralism as merely a means to an end. The end is the triumph of Islam over all other religions.

The Christians that are embracing “Chrislam” have taken the position that all doctrine is negotiable and therefore the opening up their facilities to Muslims makes good sense. This attitude, known as theological liberalism, entered the Church in the eighteenth century during the Age of the Enlightenment. Now in the twentieth century it has incorporated the philosophies of existentialism into its understanding of Christianity, accordingly it’s mantra has become unity through and with diversity.

Within the walls of these “churches’ all that truly matters is lifestyle: love, peace, harmony, non-judgmentalism, and the like. Today they even embraced homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle choice, and they are typically pro-choice—that is, they affirm the practice of abortion for women and wish to keep it legal. It only stands to reason that they would now open their churches to Islam, but that will require a serious adjustment in their liberalistic doctrine:

Precepts of Islam that will slowly be integrated into ‘chrislam’ doctrine:

  • Sharia Law will be the only law that is recognized
  • Islam says that all homosexuals must die
  • A woman who has an affair must be put to death
  • Sharia law gives a Muslim man authority to take any (non-Muslin) woman as a sex slave, and it is not consider to be an affair
  •  All women are considered as second class.
  • Any cross or the emblems of any cross must be removed or taken down
  • Any references to the crucifixion, the blood of Jesus, and salvation by faith must be removed.
  • All Jews, Christians and anyone who will not convert to Islam must be killed, and any who do convert will have the status as a ‘Dhimmitude’
  • For their Mahidi (Messiah) to return there must be Islamic Caliphate (Islamic world wide government and religion)
  • Upon the return of their Mahidi, Jesus will also return, not as the Messiah but as a prophet and He will renounce Christianity, and demand the destruction of all crosses

Yet, many churches maintain that doctrine is important. It is neither negotiable nor inconvenient. It is that which defines the Christian faith. Historically, this has been the posture of the church since its inception. Jesus Christ declared: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). The Apostle Peter added: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

In the early church, Christians were thrown to the lions because they refused to let go of fundamental Christian dogma, others were crucified, and in medieval Europe, Christians were burned at the stake due to their refusal to recant. It is, as the writer to the Hebrews explained: “All these people were still living by faith when they died…they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them” (Hebrews 11:13, 16). Accordingly, for the church the notion of Chrislam is a spiritual atrocity of the first order.

Yes, Christians are called upon to love all people, including their enemies. But they are also called upon to love God. And loving God requires that He be worshipped aright. Opening up churches to Muslims so that they can worship Allah in a way that reflects Islamic teachings are to disgrace Jesus Christ. It must not be done.

Either Chrislam will ultimately fail or Christianity will become an outlaw religion because Christianity and Islam are diametrically opposed on the most important of issues – the identity of Jesus Christ. True Christianity declares Jesus to be God incarnated in human form. For Christians, the deity of Christ is a non-negotiable, for without His deity, Jesus’ death on the cross would not have been sufficient to be the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the entire world.

Islam teaches that when the prophet “Isa” and the Mahidi return Jesus will also be with them, but he will be a Lieutenant for the Mahidi. Islam teaches that Jesus will openly state that he has been accepted by the Mahidi, that Christianity is a false religion, that he did not die on the cross, and that there is no salvation in his name or thorough his blood. Islam teachs that Jesus will proclaim that he will kill all Jews and Christians who will not convert to Islam. Left unchecked and not challenged with the truth “Chrislam” will be a wedge of destruction that the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist groups in the U.S. will use to bring about the destruction of our way of life.

  • 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 Stop forming inappropriate relationships with unbelievers. Can right and wrong be partners? Can light have anything in common with darkness? Can Christ agree with the devil? Can a believer share life with an unbeliever? Can God’s temple contain false gods? Clearly, we are the temple of the living God. As God said, “I will live and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” The Lord says, “Get away from unbelievers. Separate yourselves from them. Have nothing to do with anything unclean. Then I will welcome you.”

The rule of law that we now enjoy will become a thing of the past and our nation as we know it will cease to exist. “Chrislam” is a cancer that if it is not stopped will drive the true Church of Jesus Christ underground. At the present time 57% of those who say they are Evangelical Christians have either already embraced “chrislam” and say that they are planning on following this recent trend within their denomination..

This nation was founded upon the principles of Christianity and this new doctrine of demons spawned in the very belly of hell itself called “chrislam” will have to directly oppose those principles for any Muslim to accept or agree with it. True Christianity is now in a fight for it’s very survival, and all those who boldly proclaim that Jesus is their savior and Lord must take a stand against this apostate heretical doctrine that will deny that Jesus is the Son of God, the true Messiah, and that He is the one who purchased our salvation by His sacrifice upon the cross.

The Real Islamic (Sharia) Law

Leave a comment


The great challenges facing America in our nasty and brutish post 9 -11 world are how to interact with Muslim states and if it is possible to integrate Muslim citizens into our open, too often self-destructive, hyper-tolerant cultures. The European model of unfettered Muslim immigration to foster further multicultural
deconstructions of the character of the host societies has now been shown to be a misguided and disastrous error.

Let’s properly judge these organizations:

  • Do they believe in universal human rights – including for women and people of other faiths?
  • Do they believe in equality of all before the law?
  • Do they believe in democracy and the right of people to elect their own government?
  • Do they encourage integration or separatism?

Is this a peace loving tolerant “religion”, or a cruel, brutal, misogynist and intolerant ideology of submission and supremacist that endorse and allows any Muslim man to keep any Non-Muslim woman as “Sex Slaves”. Here, are verses from their “holy book” (the Qur’an) as proof that Islamic (Sharia) Law not only abides, and condones, but provides the Muslim man with the legal authority to have “sex-slaves”. Not one of the verses shown here, from the Qur’an or the Hadith, have been abrogated by any leading Muslim scholar or any of their religious leaders.

Umdat al-Salik (Reliance of the Traveler) (o9.13) – According to Sharia Law, when a child or woman is taken captive by Muslims, they become slaves by the fact of their capture. A captured woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.

The Qur’an: Islam’s Holy Book

Qur’an (33:50)“O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee” This is a special command that Muhammad handed down to himself, allowing himself virtually unlimited sex. Others are limited to four wives, but may also have sex with an unlimited number of slaves, as the following verse make clear:

Qur’an (23:5-6)“..who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess…” This verse allows the slave-owner to have sex with his slaves. See (Qur’an 70:29-30)

Qur’an (4:24)“And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” Even sex with married slaves is permissible.

Qur’an (8:69)“But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good” A reference to war booty, of which
slaves were a part. The Muslim slave master may enjoy his “catch” because (according to verse 71) “Allah gave you mastery over them.”

Qur’an (24:32)“And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves…” Breeding slaves based on fitness.

Qur’an (2:178)“O ye who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female.” The message of this verse, which prescribes the rules of retaliation for murder, is that all humans are not created equal. The human value of a slave is less than that of a free person (and a woman’s worth is also distinguished from that of a man’s).

Qur’an (16:75)“Allah sets forth the Parable (of two men: one) a slave under the dominion of another; He has no power of any sort; and (the other) a man on whom We have bestowed goodly favors from Ourselves, and he spends thereof (freely), privately and publicly: are the two equal? (By no means;) praise be to Allah.” Yet another confirmation that the slave is is not equal to the master. In this case it is plain that the slave owes his status to Allah’s will. (According to 16:71, the owner should be careful about insulting Allah by bestowing Allah’s gifts on slaves – those whom the god of Islam has not favored).

The Hadith: The Hadith to be essential supplements to and clarifications of the Qur’an, Islam’s holy book, as well as in clarifying issues pertaining to Islamic jurisprudence by an overwhelming majority of Muslims. From the Hadith:

Bukhari (80:753)“The Prophet said, ‘The freed slave belongs to the people who have freed him.’”

Bukhari (52:255) – The slave who accepts Islam and continues serving his Muslim master will receive a double reward in heaven.

Bukhari (41.598) – Slaves are property. They cannot be freed if an owner has outstanding debt, but rather used to pay off the debt.

Bukhari (62:137) – An account of women taken as slaves in battle by Muhammad’s men after their husbands and fathers were killed. The women were raped with Muhammad’s approval.

Bukhari (34:432) – Another account of females taken captive and raped with Muhammad’s approval. In this case it is evident that the Muslims intend on selling the women after raping them because they are concerned about devaluing their price by impregnating them. Muhammad is asked about coitus interruptus.

Bukhari (47.765) – A woman is rebuked by Muhammad for freeing a slave girl. The prophet tells her that she would have gotten a greater heavenly reward by giving her to a relative (as a slave).

Bukhari (34:351) – Muhammad sells a slave for money. He was thus a slave trader.

Bukhari (72:734) – Some contemporary Muslims in the West, where slavery is believed to be a horrible crime, are reluctant to believe that Muhammad owned slaves. This is just one of many places in the Hadith where a reference is made to a human being owned by Muhammad. In this case, the slave is of African descent.

Muslim 3901 – Muhammad trades away two black slaves for one Muslim slave.

Muslim 4112 – A man freed six slaves on the event of his death, but Muhammad reversed the emancipation and kept four in slavery to himself. He cast lots to determine which two to free.

Bukhari (47:743) – Muhammad’s own pulpit – from which he preached Islam – was built with slave labor on his command.

Bukhari (59:637)“The Prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) and I hated Ali, and Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus). I said to Khalid, ‘Don’t you see this (i.e. Ali)?’ When we reached the Prophet I mentioned that to him. He said, ‘O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘Do you hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumlus.’” Muhammad approved of his men having sex with slaves, as this episode involving his son-in-law, Ali, clearly proves. This Hadith refutes the modern apologists who pretend that slaves were really “wives,” since Muhammad had forbidden Ali from marrying another woman as long as Fatima (his favorite daughter) was living.

Abu Dawud (2150) – “The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Qur’an 4:24) ‘And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.’” This is the background for verse 4:24 of the Qur’an. Not only does Allah grant permission for women to be captured and raped, but allows it to even be done in front of their husbands.

Ibn Ishaq (734) – A slave girl is given a “violent beating” by Ali in the presence of Muhammad, who does nothing about it.

Ibn Ishaq (693) – “Then the apostle sent Sa-d b. Zayd al-Ansari, brother of Abdu’l-Ashal with some of the captive women of Banu Qurayza to Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons.” Muhammad trades away women captured from the Banu Qurayza tribe to non-Muslim slave traders for property. (Their men had been executed after surrendering peacefully without a fight).

The adherents of “Chrislam” and other who advocate the need for ‘political correctness” without considering the consequences will refer to their Muslim friends who are kind and gentle and forswear violence and, most importantly, would “never do jihad” as illustrations and even proof of the “true Islam.” Such inevitably unhappy and frustrated folk reference the now failed assertion that Islam has been hijacke  (by terrorists and killers) and that “true Islam” is “the religion of peace.” How much easier things would be if only they were right. But, they’re not.

The kind Muslim friend, a friend of kafirs/non-Muslims, may well be a “good person” and forswear jihad, but this is not what being a “good Muslim” is about. Allah and Mohammed both command that all adherents of Islam (slaves of Allah); all those who have “submitted” must participate in jihad and/or support those who do. To abjure this obligation for jihad is considered a grave sin with serious consequences.

Consider what Jihad is. It is war, with open violence, or through deception and fraud, against non-Muslims everywhere forever until the entire world is under Islamic rule and Allah’s religion is the only religion on the planet.

Mohammed’s mission was to convert the earth to Islam. It would also be considered to have been a successful Jihad when a people, or nation surrendering without violence their sovereignty to be subjugate under Islamic rule and Sharia Law. This then gives any Muslim man the legal authority to take ANY WOMAN he wants and make her his “Sex Slave”. Unless we stop this insaneness that is being perpetrated upon this nation by the media, our government, the academic elitist, and Chrislam proponents, we will become subject to Islamic Totalitarian Rule and Ideology as a “Dhimmitude” or a     sub-human, one with no more rights than cattle.

Part III “The Body of Christ – Where is It?”

Leave a comment


In Part One I presented a helpful way to understand the Body of Christ, by looking at the divine plan for the human body. Showing how the various denominations, Churches, Fellowships, and independent ministries could develop into the Body of Christ. The emphasis was on the eleven individual physical systems of the human body and how each was divinely created to function  independent of the others, and how each although independent was totally dependent on the other ten to live and give life.

 In that illustration one area that was not considered was leadership or “the head”. It was excluded to challenge the reader to take a serious look at the various Christian groups located within their geographical locations. Then consider how they could be united into a functioning local body. Next was to decide which one should be in authority, and if necessary which group/system should be excluded because it just doest function like or as well as the others.

Then in Part Two I used a different illustration of how the various denominations, Churches, Fellowships, and independent ministries could come together and forgo their independence to become the functioning body of Christ. There was also the implication that if they choose to remain estranged they would have to stand and perform alone without benefit of the “Conductor”. It showed that the Orchestra is not one single instrument and that NONE of the ‘musicians’ have authority over the others. How through the symbiotic intentional collaboration of Christian groups a pure unity, love, and harmony would result, with a corresponding outpouring of heavenly blessings. Jesus, the man, was and is the perfect physical manifestation of God’s will.  Christians whether individually or corporately should be a living manifestation of the Word of God. Each Christian is the ‘Temple of the Holy Spirit’ and together we form a temple made without hands.

Now I would like to review another aspect of our body that I believe is to be represented within the Body of Christ. In fact without them our body, physical and spiritual, would simply be unresponsive hulks although still alive. Man was created to be an emotional being living, procreating, and having dominion. I am referring to our five natural senses portals through which we are able to experience our environment:

  1. Sight
  2. Hearing
  3. Smell
  4. Taste
  5. Feel (sensory/tactical perception)

If deprived of our natural senses what kind of a life would we have, unable to experience, enjoy, and learn about our environment. Through them we sample the environment, that information is then processed in our brain and we have learning experience. In similar conditions we can then anticipate the results. We learn what we enjoy as well as what we should be careful of, and what is dangerous.

Naturally we have five natural senses and the body of Christ has been equipped with them as well. Unlike the eleven physical systems they have no specific function. While their function is not to sustain the physical body, they are necessary.

Ephesians 4:11-14  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teacher, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

They help others grow into their specific ministry. The gravest error in the Body of Christ is considering them to be positions of authority – NOTHING could be further from the truth. A careful study of the ministry of Jesus, the man, confirms that He fulfilled each position. Jesus was the Church’s first Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. Jesus gave us the example of how these positions of RESPONSIBILITY were to function. Jesus “fathered” the twelve, He taught the seventy, and He ministered to the multitude. At EVERY opportunity when questioned about authority He made sure the disciples understood they were to be SERVENTS, and were without authority.

We have seen the elements that can comprise the Body of Christ, but is that what is seen today. The world is looking for answers, turning to the Church do they see the mature Body of Christ, represented through unity of faith, harmony of purpose, and love for one another? No. Scanning the tapestry of the landscape all they see are various fragments of Christianity all claiming superiority over the others, with seemingly irreconcilable distrust, fragmentation, and division.

The god of this world (Satan) is successful in blinding the eyes of the world, yet his greatest success have been in preventing the unification of the Body of Christ. It’s accomplished by implanting and sustaining the traditions of men (Mark 7:13), ministers of righteousness (2nd Corinthians 11:14-15), the promotion of hirelings (John 10:12), and false Christ and false prophets (Matthew 24:24). All designed to deceive with the end product being an aberration of the true Church.

What is a “delusional” Church? It’s those who have believe they have been saved because they may have at one time raised their hand in acknowledgment that they wanted to be save, maybe they went forward and said the sinners prayer and they may have even filled out a commitment card, but what does Jesus say about them:

Matthew7:20-23 wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

 Matthew 25:31-33, 41  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left….Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

John 15:5-8 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing, if a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

The error that will lead multitudes into eternal damnation is a misunderstanding of what Jesus considers to be fruit. Matthew 7: 20-23 notes a group of “believers” who are earnestly professing Jesus as Lord, but He says that He never knew them. Prior to His return they were involved in various activities that many claim to be fruit, but Jesus does not. They “prophesied in His name”, exercised dominion over devils, and did wonderful works all in the name of the Jesus. But Jesus says He NEVER KNEW them, but how can this be? They had good works not fruit. Fruit can only be produced from the seed, and the branch can only receive life from the vine.

The reason for the rejection is found in the definition of: fruit and works

G2590 karpos, probably from the base of G726; fruit (as plucked), literally or figuratively: – fruit. (my note – that which sustains life, and contains life as well)

 G2041 ergon, From ergō (a primary but obsolete word; to work); toil (as an effort or occupation); by implication an act: – deed, doing, labor, work.

Fruit is the product of a specific seed; it is always from the inside out. Jesus is looking for the visible manifestation of his life. He is the Word the INCORRUPTIBLE seed. Do not be caught in the trap of confusing good works for fruit.

1st Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.

Anyone who is born again has the entire Word of God within them. It is placed within each person as (Logos – seed). Then it is the responsibility of each Christian to study and nurture it until it produces (Rehma – fruit) the visible or realized product contained within the specific seed.

Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

The question is: which company will you be in? Each of us is individual responsible for our fate, you will not be allowed to blame anyone else for your life.
