There are many serious believers in churches who truly want to serve the kingdom of God but they are trapped in churches. What they do not realize is that as long as they are bound to the church organization and subject themselves to the church leadership, they cannot follow Jesus and be pleasing to Him. The only way that we can be part of the kingdom of God is when we follow and serve the King, Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.
Church organizations brainwash believers to believe that the church is part of the kingdom of God and that by supporting and working for the church, that they are indeed serving the kingdom of God. The leadership. preachers, pastors and clergy teach believers to submit themselves to the rule, discipline and control of the church leadership. Believers are taught the doctrines of the church, which are supported by verses from the Bible. The Bible is used to mesmerize believers and keep them spellbound.
The Bible has been translated and twisted in such a way as to support worldly church organizations. That is why the Bible is effectively used as a tool to control and keep believers captive. The Bible is regarded as the infallible word of God, by the churches, and they thus use their interpretation or twisted application of the Bible verses to rule over and thus to bind and control the believers. They become captives of the church because they believe that their eternal salvation depends on their church membership and their dedication to the church doctrines and leadership. They are burdened by rules and regulations, bound to tithe, pay 10% of their gross income, and more, to the church and to support church projects. They are led to believe that if they do not pay these taxes to the church, they will end up in hell. Guilt is piled on them if they do not attend church meetings, at which occasions they are further brainwashed and indoctrinated into bondage of the church. All along Bible verses are twisted and used to chastise and subdue believers into submission.
The whole concept of a church organization is worldly, satanic and antichrist. It is totally opposed to the teachings of Jesus. It is satan’s version of the Body of Christ, the true Church, the Ekklesia. Members of the ekklesia, the true church, have been literally “called out” of the world (in Greek ekklesia is related to kaleo, “to call”) in order to live free of its dictates and to belong fully, at every moment, to Jesus and to one another. You cannot belong to the Ekklesia and to a worldly church organization.
Many of those believers who are trapped in the churches read the Bible for themselves and realize that the church teachings and practices do not comply with what they read in the Bible. They compare different Bible translations and soon learn about the lies and deception, the twisted meaning of many translated verses. Some of them question and object to these differences but they are quickly reminded not to be rebellious but to submit to the church leadership or else to face exclusion, discipline, rejection, even persecution, by church leadership and the other members. They give in to the pressure. For fear of rejection by friends, family and their brainwashed community, they do not follow the truth but remain captives of the church.
The gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, leads those who believe and thus follow and obey Him, to eternal life. It calls them out, to become the Ekklesia, “called out” of the world in order to live free of its dictates and to belong fully, at every moment, to Jesus and to follow Him.
The rules of the Kingdom of God were delivered by Jesus Himself and were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those are the teachings of Jesus, the words of eternal life, for those who obey them and live by them. We are called to turn from sin and from following after worldly desires, achievements and pleasures, to deny ourselves and follow Jesus. Jesus promised to give His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, in those who obey His teachings, who repent and are baptized in water and who come after Him. The Hoy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, will guide them into all truth if they stay with Him until the end of their life. They are the true church, the Ekklesia, the called out ones, that do not follow after men, are not part of church organizations. They follow Jesus, under guidance of the Holy Spirit because they are FREE from the bondage of the worldly church system.
You cannot follow Jesus and be part of the Kingdom of God if you stay in the bondage of church. You must serve the Master, Jesus Christ, not the pastor. Turn to Jesus, seek Him with all your heart. Read and obey His teachings as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark Luke and John. Repent and be baptized (baby baptism is not valid), go after Jesus, pray, ask Him to baptize you in the Holy Spirit, then stay with Him and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, until the end.
Get out of church, follow Jesus and become part of the Kingdom of God.
May Jesus bless you.
