Christ the Truth - John 14:6

Month: July 2015

One World Religion

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series News

From the beginning I want to clarify that this blog is not anti-Roman Catholic, we love Catholic people,  we are anti-sin and anti-Satan.  I was a devout Catholic for 25 years, studied from elementary through high school in a Catholic school.  I have many family members and friends that are Catholics.  When I was a baby Christian I married a Catholic, who later also got saved,  we went to prayer meetings with Catholics, even went with relatives to their Catholic churches on special occasions and we believed we all could be the same body of Christ & that the Catholic Church just needed to make some small changes, etc. But it wasn’t until we study the Bible & also went deeper into Catholic doctrine, that we understood why they didn’t change or experienced any conviction of sins, and we also could understood what the real problem was.  But we love Catholics and because we do, we warn them.  I’m convinced that many Catholics will come to the Lord Jesus Christ in this last days

Now that we truly want to follow Christ and want to do what God says in His Word, then we have to put aside the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church or any other denomination, that are rooted in their own traditions or man-made doctrines, rather than in the true Word of God. How can we call ourselves Christians if we don’t follow Christ or His Word?  but rather follow our own ideas or teachings of men?  (Mormons follow the teachings of Joseph Smith, Jehovah’s Witnesses follow teachings of Charles Russell & their Governing body,  Moravians follow Masonic count Zinzendorf, etc. See the problem? ).  Our advise… do not follow men but the son of God, invite Jesus Christ into your life, accept Him as your Lord & Saviour, and study His Word.

This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. Mark 7:6-7

We publish here more news regarding the pope or the Vatican, because they are the ones leading the ecumenical movement that is bringing many into a ‘One World Religion’, but there are also many leaders of other denominations involved in this.

The Roman Catholic document “DOMINUS IESUS” (DI) was issued by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the time. Carrying the full authority of an official Vatican decree, it declares the Roman Catholic Church (which they say in that same document is the church founded by Christ and the one true religion), to be the “universal sacrament of salvation” and the instrument for the salvation of all humanity“. DI was “ratified and confirmed” by then pope John Paul II on June 16th 2000.

If Jesus Christ says He is the only way to the Father (John 14:6), and the Word of God says there is no salvation apart from Him (Acts 4:12), then the Roman Catholic Church is not only contradicting the Word of God, but is also usurping the place that only belongs to Christ.

But Jesus said: ” I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me John 14:6.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Tim.2:5

The pope also is considered the ‘Vicar of Christ’ (Representative of Christ on earth) and the ‘Holy Father’. But see what Jesus says in Matthew 23:9.  Any person or denomination that points themselves for salvation instead of pointing to Jesus Christ, then is operating in the spirit of Antichrist. (notice I’m not saying they are the Antichrist). Antichrist means acting in place of (or against) Christ.

Another document from the Vatican, signed in 2007″

To the dismay of ecumenically-minded Protestants, the Roman pope, Benedict XVI, made it clear, in a document released in 2007, that the Roman Catholic institution is the “one, true Church“, and that Protestant institutions, not being in full communion with Rome, are not true churchesBible Based Ministries

The  Vatican is not hiding any more their intentions to unify all religions in one world religion under Rome.

“The “ultimate aim” of the ecumenical journey, “ is obviously the unity of the churches in the one Church”. “This does not mean uniformity” but “unity in pluriformity”. The “Orthodox Churches should not change much in their internal structure, almost nothing in fact, if they unite themselves with Rome”  Vatican Insider, Feb 23, 2015

ONE WORLD RELIGION

 

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Cor. 16:14-18

  “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than menActs 5:29.

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:

The Bible teaches in Revelation that there will be some kind of world religion under a leader (second beast), that looks like a lamb (Jesus, Rev.5:6;14:1,4, etc.) but talks like a dragon (Satan, Rev.12.9), has great power & that will use its influence to enable the Antichrist (the Beast), a charismatic political leader at beginning (later a dictator) to implement the mark of the Beast on a new world economy.  Rev. 13.  This religious leader is also called the ‘False Prophet‘ (Revelation 16:13, 19:20, 20:10). The words Vatican & vaticinium come both from the Latin root ‘vatic’ which means Prophecy.

Dualism isn’t taught in the bible, we need not to think or talk in binary (2) opposites. It is mainly used to protect an ideology & to discourage critical thinking in indoctrination. A good example of this, is  when George Bush after 9/11 declared publicly “Either you are with us or against us” there was no room for neutrality in the war against terrorism. That phrase was to silence the critics that opposed his ideology of war.

The Doctrine of Jezebel

This is a great sermon by pastor David Wilkerson (a well known pastor for more than 50 years) that I’m sure will bless you. In this video he explains what the doctrine of Jezebel really is. There is so much confusion today regarding this matter and this video will help us to better understand and consequently and most importantly help us to take heed of Jesus words and warnings regarding this danger that is very present in our churches in this time of apostasy.

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest (permit) that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols (Rev. 2:20).

Pastor David Wilkerson explained that the Greek word for Jezebel (Strong G2403) is a synonym for false teacher, and that she clearly represents False Doctrine .  As Wilkerson said, Jesus speaking in the book of Revelation clears up any doubt by continuing, “…as many as have not this doctrine… (Revelation 2:24)”.

By reading Revelation chapter two we clearly understand that Jesus is warning us about the teachings or doctrines of this person or false teacher. Many will just focus on her gender, & not her doctrine, but if we think about it, we don’t have women in position of authority over men in most of our Christian churches. Our Lord Jesus is talking here about a big  & serious problem inside His church.  ” He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” vs.29.  These bible verses are talking about us permitting to be spiritually seduced by false doctrines.  The word ‘seduction’ stems from Latin and means literally “to lead astray” mostly by an appeal to the senses.

But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons”  1 Timothy 4:1

“I could subtitle this message “The Danger of Being Seduced by False Doctrine“. Read Revelation 2:18-29 and you will see that Christ Himself warned the church against the doctrine of Jezebel. “You permit that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat the things sacrificed unto idols” (Revelation 2:20). The Greek word here for Jezebel is a synonym for a false teacher. She clearly represents false doctrines. Jesus clears it up by continuing, “…as many as have not this doctrine…” (Revelation 2:24).

Here is a group of God’s people, full of good works and charity, having a form of faith and patience. But the eyes of Jesus appear among them, blazing with flames of fire. With all that is good and commendable, there is something very dangerous going on, something so seductive that Christ warns He will send judgment and make them an example to all the churches. Certain members of the church were selling out to Satan. Their good works, charity, service, faith and patience were overshadowed by a seduction of false doctrine. They were under the spell of a false teaching, a teaching that came disguised as the true Word but was in fact evil.


The Seduction of God’s Servants


Christ said it was “My servants” being seduced. Ministers. We have come to this very dangerous condition Christ warned about. There are multitudes of pastors, teachers and evangelists completely under the seductive spell of the Jezebel doctrine. These seduced teachers are in turn producing “children of seduction”. They teach fornication and the consumption of the food of idolsthis is spiritual fornication. This is eating the demonic food of doctrines that excuse sin.  . . . . . ”   For a written summary of the teaching, please see: The Doctrine of Jezebel!

Image of Jezebel from book “Promptuarii Iconum Insigniorum “

Besides the book of Revelation we can find more about Jezebel in 1 & 2 Kings.  Jezebel was a princess, identified (1 Kings 16:31) as the daughter of Ethbaal, King of Sidon (Lebanon/Phoenicia), this king was not only a worshiper of Baal but also a high priest of Baal, his name means ‘ With Baal or devotion to Baal ‘.  Jezebel became a priestesses (a high level witch) of Baal, the Phoenician sun god. She  married Ahab, king of northern Israel, becoming queen of Israel.

I always associated Jezebel  with false prophets, which is not far off from false doctrines, but because of that limited interpretation, I was being more careful with false prophets & prophetess than with false doctrines.

According to the bible, Jezebel incited King Ahab (her husband) to abandon the worship of the God of Israel and encourage him instead to worship the false god Baal who required human sacrifices, and the goddess Asherah his counterpart. Ahab instead tried to steer a middle course, encouraging tolerance between the two belief systems (God’s truth & false doctrine) to God’s people. Throughout the Old Testament this union of that which is holy with that which is impure is considered by God as spiritual adultery. It was and still is an abomination in His sight!

And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word. 1 King 18:21

Jezebel  was an enemy of God who was “killing off the Lord’s prophets.” In response, the prophet Elijah accused King Ahab of abandoning the Lord and challenged Jezebel’s 450 prophets of Baal and 450 prophets of Asherah. Jezebel, like the pagan wives of Solomon, required buildings for carrying on her form of worship, so Ahab made an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. Another 400 priests/prophets were housed in a sanctuary that Jezebel erected for them, and which she fed at her own table. The palace in which Jezebel lived was called the Ivory House because of the wealth of carved ivory used in its decorations.

Jezebel was evil, she destroyed the prophets of God as much as she could reach. After becoming queen, she quickly tried to take over Israel with her idolatrous worship and  demonic practices, she ordered the extermination of all the prophets of the Lord and replaced their altars with those of Baal. Her goal was to advance the false doctrine she led.  These are very important characteristics, to take into consideration when we want to understand who she really was.

Obadiah, the faithful overseer of Ahab’s house, rescued one hundred of God’s prophets, hid them, and secretly fed them in a cave. 1 Kings 18:4, 13.

Jezebel also fabricated false evidence of blasphemy against Naboth, an innocent landowner, because he refused to sell his vineyard to Ahab, causing him to be put to death. (1 Kings 21:3; Leviticus 25:23)  At God’s command, the prophet Elijah then confronted Ahab that was going to take possession of the land. He proclaimed that because of their actions : “Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine“.  (1 Kings 21:19). He further prophesies that Ahab’s male descendants will die, his dynasty will end and that dogs  “shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.” (1 Kings 21:23).

Three years later, Ahab died in battle. His son Ahaziah inherits the throne but dies in an accident and his brother Jehoram became the successor. Jezebel outlived Ahab by almost fourteen years, she then knew that Jehu killed her son Jehoram and was coming for her, she prepared herself and died a gruesome death – At the orders of Jehu she was thrown out of a window of her palace by members of her own court, the eunuchs that were there to protect her, her body was then trampled by horses & later when Jezebel’s body was to be taken for burial, his servants discovered only her skull, her feet and the palms of her hands – her corpse had been eaten by dogs, & Ahab’s male descendants also died just as the prophet Elijah had prophesied. Interestingly enough it wasn’t the prophet Elijah who executed God’s judgment over Jezebel, (but only over her prophets), he was already gone when her judgment took place, but (most likely because of her position of authority) God used a military commander called Jehu who was anointed by Elijah as the new king over Israel (1 King 19:16).

Jezebel’s dressing  and her putting on of makeup led some people to associate the use of cosmetics with “painted women” or prostitutes. But when we do some research we find that the make up used by kings and queens at that time, were used only by the royalty and priestess, and it represented their authority. It is also believed that Jezebel went to her death wearing the ritual make-up and dressed as a priestess of Baal.

Heavy make-up was part of the regalia and ritual of royal women and priestesses

Knowing that he was coming, Jezebel put on make-up and a formal wig with adornments and looked out a window. Bromiley says that it should be looked at less as an attempt at seduction than the public appearance of the queen mother, invested with the authority of the royal house and cult, confronting a rebellious commander. Wikipedia               – Geoffrey W. Bromiley (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

In many evangelical circles, the Jezebel spirit is used to describe a spiritual force behind individuals (males or females) and groups which exercise manipulation, domination and control.  There are some events in the life of Jezebel which characterize her and may define what is meant by many in the church as the ‘Jezebel spirit’.

1/ They abuse their position of authority (She was a queen with power to do harm to God’s people).
2/ They have a strong tendency for domineering and controlling others, especially in the spiritual realm. (Like promoting Baal worshipers-false doctrines & Killing God’s true prophets to dominate).
3/ They have a single-minded determination to have one’s way, no matter who is destroyed in the process (example: What she did to Naboth to get her way).

These are the main characteristics we find out of what many  call the ‘Jezebel spirit’, but there are many more that you can find in the Internet. This could be true, these are known characteristics behind any spirit of witchcraft, (in males or females), and is good to be able to recognize them, but unfortunately they always miss the main problem that JESUS was pointing out to us: Her (or his) False Doctrines.

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest (permit) that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. …. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine“. Rev.2:20,24

Jezebel worked hard against Godly doctrine and relentless promoted her false doctrine of sun-god worship.   God not only warned Jezebel the false teacher, but God also warned her followers to stop and repent (Rev. 2:22-23).  God appealed to Jezebel’s husband King Ahab many times: with a famine, a miraculous fire set to a sacrifice, military victories against-the-odds, spoken appeals, and more. Ahab humbled himself before the Lord and because of that the Lord didn’t bring the punishment of his household in his days. 1 King 21:27-29. But Jezebel was more proud & didn’t repent.

– In conclusion, the main characteristics to remember when some one mentions Jezebel in the church, should not be mainly her personality or her tools (things that are temporary), but her spiritual goals:

1/ When Jezebel got into a position of authority, she quickly began an intense campaign to take control of God’s people and get rid of sound doctrine & consequently true worship. For this reason she ordered the extermination of all true prophets (teachers) of God, replacing them with counterfeits full of demonic doctrines & witchcraft.

This is her real legacy, these are the main characteristics to take in consideration when someone mentions her name, but most important of all, this is what our Lord JESUS was warning us about.  I pray for the Church of Jesus to be able to discern, but especially for our leaders to not allow false doctrines to contaminate the Church, but to diligently guard the sound doctrine that was given to us in the Scriptures.
