THE REASONS WHY CHURCH LEADERS AND THEIR MEMBERS ARE BEING REVEALED AS COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANS.
At long last, counterfeit Christians are being revealed!
But why are they sham-Christians? It is because their sectarian religious leaders are paid to deceive them, they misuse the Holy Bible to do so, and are rewarded by satan with special honours and titles. (2 Esdras 9:9 NEB). They are also provided with special garments to deceive, places to preach their hypocrisy, and grand homes to live in.
These sectarian leaders know that their church members cannot
discern the truth, and allow them to excuse themselves from the holy works of a true Christian.
They are taught to
indulge in the pretence and mock humility of their leaders
Consequently, Christian pretenders and Godless unbelievers care nothing about true salvation, so long as they are not expected to endure persecution for righteousness' sake. However, only those who are in unity with The Christ are persecuted for the sake of righteousness. (See Matt 5:10). And why do you think that is?
What did The Christ have to say about persecution? This: "As they persecuted me, they will persecute you; they will follow your teaching as little as they have followed mine. It is on my account that they will treat you thus, because they do not know the One who sent me." (John 15:20,21 NEB).
The reason why counterfeit Christians are not persecuted, is that they have not come to know God, or be known by Him through His Son The Christ. They refuse to accept the sufferings that persecution inevitably brings when one pursues righteousness. (2 Thess 1:6-10).
Many are they who want to come to know God. To begin one must offer humble supplications (prayers) to God through Christ in a genuine spirit of repentance. We must also devote time to searching out the Will of God revealed in His Holy Bible, and apply His righteous Spirit disciplines in our lives to assist in the removal of superfluous badness from our spirits. In this way we begin walking in a "newness of life" by means of His Son The Christ who progressively subjects us to God. (Rom 6:1-6).
During the "time of the end" of the present systems of this satanic
"darkness", righteous "sheep"-like ones
are being separated
from stubborn unreconciled "goat"
