Church didnt save Print

The Jewish converts of old demanded gentile believers, listening to the Judaizers of theconcision of the law, to be incorporated into the Jewish circumcision and law into their
synagogues to be under the priests of the Jewish temples but Paul told them “NO” for the
believer was the temple of the living God in Christ, the new creation God had created in Christ, never to enter in nor return to the old ways and temples. The just {Jew and gentile} shall live by faith.
The great shepherd leads His sheep now not the law or the old priesthood for Jesus is our High Priest of the temple of the New Creation in Christ, ones mind,  body and soul who truly comes to serve and love Him to the glory of God being cleansed of sin and not wanting to sin anymore being more like Christ every day.
 
Just listen to the effort and disheartening of one who trusts in the system, a man, and a false doctrine, rather than to be lead of the Holy Spirit, being baptized in, with the evidence of speaking in an unknown tongue to the believer, following Christ and His truth and doctrines.

If nothing else, I found the question to be highly relevant to myself personally as I struggled to find my place in the Christian world following the collapse of the “undisclosed name”. Was my discontent due to being warped by a cult? After a few years of trying and “failing to find another church in which I felt as comfortable” as at the “undisclosed name”, I had to ask myself why. What was it about my expectations of church [notice what the expectations are of, it isn’t Christ!] that were so hard to satisfy—especially given
the fact that I could see many others in many different kinds of churches who were deeply satisfied by their churches?[usually that means spiritually dead] What need of my own was satisfied by the “undisclosed name” that was failing to be met by these other churches? Were all churches except the “undisclosed name” simply inadequate? Or were my expectations maybe out of kilter? Was I expecting the wrong things from church? Had legitimate spiritual needs been manipulated and damaged by the “undisclosed name” so that now my expectations or spiritual perception were permanently damaged? [Christ isn’t in this picture you notice!]

 
In brief, if other churches were also part of the body of Christ (as indeed “undisclosed name”[leadership] always conceded they were)”, [Number one the organized harlot religion who cloaks themselves using the word and concept “church” because Christ used it is not the true body of Christ due to the fact they are normally in condemnation of the world Jesus referred to in John 3.18-21. Only those that worship God  in spirit and in truth in Christ and His words to be lead of the Holy Spirit to live holy, righteous, and perfect, hating to sin, are the body of Christ-truth. lets go on.] “then why should I feel so out of place and dissatisfied in them? In the first few years, I think I could have given several definite answers to this question—the teaching wasn't as deep, the worship wasn't as good, the people weren't as committed, and there wasn't as much true fellowship and love. [which indicates sin and unbelief in Christ and His truth and doctrines] I had an expectation that church should be like my early days in the “undisclosed name”—somehow more "alive," with more teaching,
more prayer, more zeal.”
 
[remember this; “the joy of the Lord is my strength!” what more joy could one have then to know the Father and Son in true fellowship in His word and truth by the Holy Spirit of God whom Christ gives to us as a comforter to walk in faith in Him. The church doesn’t give one this joy but Christ and His truth by faith in Him not the concept of Church.]
 
On this view of it, I had perhaps made a mistake in leaving the “undisclosed nameand seeking out other churches instead of following “undisclosed name”[leadership] after the “undisclosed name” split. He was, after all, the one who had the "anointing"[this was a false teaching which was to follow and trust in the supposedly anointed man or woman in the faith movement] to receive and preach the truths upon which the “undisclosed name
had been founded, and it was his leadership and teaching under which the worship and fellowship there had flourished”.

Sin destroyed this fellowship along with doctrines of the carnal flesh following a man who failed to follow Christ  loving His sin. [system of religion looking for ones own selfish fulfillment and justification following men and woman of unbelief and sin not looking to the word of God and following Christ in spirit and in truth].

This is a common occurrence due to the lack of commitment to Christ and His word as He says it. People
are destroyed and thrown about because of fear, laziness, dependency on a group or system in
unbelief and sin having no knowledge of the Father and Son in truth, honest and sincere heart to love God and follow Him giving in to temptations and pride.

 

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and “upon this rock” [Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God”] “I will build my church”[the true eternal Israel of God]; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. [of course not for Christ has destroyed the works of the devil so those that are His, the church, called out ones, committed to Him and steadfast in Him in Holiness, will never be engulfed with the devils works ever again for eternity. His blood says so!]  (Matthew 16:16-18) {read Daniel 2.44,45 }

 

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand [Its here! nigh upon you! the stone not cut of human hands but of God]. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:7-8)

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. [For the word of God is quick, and powerful,and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) ] (Matthew 10:32-34)

 

And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20)

 

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.(Romans 1:8) For I long to see you, that “I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established”; That is, “that I may be comforted together with you” {how?}by the mutual faith both of you and me.  (Romans 1:11-12)

 

These are but a few describing the called out ones in Christ, the true Israel of God, holy, righteous and perfect hating sin. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. [being born again per chance then following men and woman of the organized harlot church due to no love of the truth of God] (John 10:1)

 

 

Listen to this and knowthese are the true Israel of God”, the called out ones who have truly acknowledged Christ as Lord and love truth and light in faith to be holy:

 

To him the porter openeth{God}; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. (John 10:3-5)

 

 

What voice is the True Holy Israel listening to?
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, {Why?} because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every
one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved
.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. (John 3:17-21)
Howbeit when he, “the Spirit of truth”, is come, “he will guide you into all truth”: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:13)
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. (John 14:10)

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, “the truth”, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. [says Jesus praying to the Father] (John 17:17)

Therefore God is a God of truth-light! His word is truth-light! Jesus is the living word and will of God-the truth. “Only honest sincere repentant hearts, humbled before God like little children, living in Christ to be holy as He is holy, are the true Israel of God. They do not follow men and woman or a system of deceptive blind self justification of mankind’s foolish wisdom, of spiritual matters, of unbelief and sin moving against Christ and His words.

 

 

What is evil? Hear what Jesus says even to one of His disciples;
Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. From that time forth began “Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 

 

[here is evil described by Christ to Peter]But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: “for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men”. [they thought Christ was there to establish an earthly kingdom for the Jews at that time to rule the world which even today The so called Christian community thinks of itself the same way and even predicting a Jewish natural reign of the future claiming Jesus taught so and was predicted of God. What foolishness and lies of the most vulgar imagination against Christ, God’s plan and purpose to circumcise the heart to sin no more.]

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (Romans 8:5-8)
 
And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and “shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God”: and the twelve were with him, (Luke 8:1)
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And “he sent them to preach the kingdom of God”, and “to heal the sick”. (Luke 9:1-2)
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and “looking back”, is fit for the kingdom of God.
(Luke 9:62)



And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, “The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you”. [nigh means it is upon you. Its here, now!](Luke 10:9)
But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, “no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you”. (Luke 11:20)

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you”.  [its possible to enter into from the heart by the confession of the Lordship of Christ for the forgiveness of sins to be holy from a true repentant heart](Luke 17:20-21)

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Romans 14:17)

Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. (Romans 4:6-8)
 
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:20-26)
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63)

 

And the Lord said unto him, Now do “ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness”. (Luke 11:39)
Then shall ye begin to say, “We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets”.
But he shall say, “I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity”.
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,
and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and “you yourselves thrust out”. [religious forms of sin and unbelief against Christ and His word loving this world of fleshly lust.] (Luke 13:26-28)
How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
(John 5:44)

 

Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works [Jesus answered and said unto them, This is “the work of God”, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:29)] they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work [holiness, faith, truth, and doctrines of Christ as He spoke them.] reprobate.  (Titus 1:14-16)
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. (Jude 1:10-11)
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)



Read Matthew 23 and Luke 11 to know a little of the fleshly church claiming relationship with Christ to see what God says of them. Mark chapter seven is another.
 
God bless you as you seek Him or you will and are blinded by the god of this world [his religious prideful deceitful sinful rebellious form of lies] reserved for the wrath of God by your choice and no one else.

 

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
[by their choice for God is no respecter of persons.] (Matthew 7:14)
