Jesus destroys community division: all real Christians are equal and share identical access to Him

This scripture was one of several similar ones in my discussions yesterday about arrogant, self-appointed heresy-hunters, or modern-day Inquisitors, who sit in judgement and condemn their brethren in Christ. They watch out for and denounce division whereas actually fomenting it, thereby serving only to further the strategies of the accuser of the brethren!

Real Christianity

         The Lord Jesus taught us that only He must be in charge. Most Christian leaders reject that directive. This is part of the reason why an alternative form of Christianity was created long ago.

.

         Only the Lord Jesus is worthy of praise. Unless anyone out there has done what He did no one else qualifies. Yet we continue to have the equivalent of bowing before religious leaders and kissing their rings as if they somehow managed to grab a hold of something higher than the rest of us and land upon a leadership summit denied to everyone else. In reality, of course, no such place exists within His Community and never has.

         But for any readers out there not yet familiar with this blog and the faithful readers who have supported it for many years, you might have a problem with this simple…

  1. That’s an interesting article which makes some good points but it exaggerates so much, presumably (to take a charitable view) for effect, that there’s a lot I find it hard to agree with. The concluding paragraph

    “The institutional clergy refutes the fact that all are called to serve because its members want to corner the market (and have). Once the majority of such people gain control they then manage to not even answer their own callings, if they ever did to begin with. Thus, the entire process results in removing pretty much everybody from real Christian service”

    I find to be wrong in every statement it makes – at least in the light of my own experience. I count five falsehoods there (or, to be more charitable again, errors) plus one gratuitous bit of innuendo, which is really going some for only three sentences.

  2. The body Building Itself Up in Love

    And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

    I had a vision today as I was driving home. In the vision I saw something similar to a vision I saw in March of 2010 which I will post below to give a sense of what I am about to describe.

    I saw in a vision, many people and as they gathered they became like living stones in the temple wall. The wall did not keep people out, instead, as people came to the living wall, they became part of it. The building, if you will, had walls created by people joining together to worship the Lord, however, the building had no roof. Instead, it’s covering was the glory of God and it was His glory spilling out over the walls, because the glory of God cannot be contained, that was drawing people.

    In the vision I saw today October 30 2015, I saw something similar to what I saw 5 years ago with some additions. In the second vision I again saw the people only this time as the people gathered, they began to climb on top of one another so that they were standing upon each others shoulders. One person would come in and then another would come up to him/her and the one already standing there would help the other up onto his/her shoulders. This kept repeating and the people kept coming and climbing upon the shoulders of the ones standing and the also the shoulders of those already standing upon shoulders.

    Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

    It is worthy of note that Apostles and Prophets are the foundation, i.e., the bottom. They helped the others climb up and form the wall. The leaders were on the bottom, the more authority given, the lower they were. The job of leadership is to equip the saints.

    I did not see in the vision any fighting over position. All were helping the other climb starting with those lowest, the apostles and prophets.

  3. The End of the Church As We Know It….. A Second Dream

    I had a dream 02/17/2014 and in the dream I was what seemed to be a home group. I say a home group because I got the sense that this group was attached to a church that met in a building. In the dream We were discussing various things but it is when I began to tell people about a dream I had in January of 2010 that people began to leave and I was left with no one in the room to tel my dream to. No one said to me to stop telling my dream or that they weren’t interested in hearing it, they just left and went about their business like I had never said anything about the end of the church. I am posting the dream that I had back in 2010 below.

    Let me share a dream I had. In the dream, I saw a wooden coffin and inside the coffin, I saw a church with 2 very large pillars outside. also saw the lid of the coffin resting on the knuckles of 2 hands and the hands in turn were resting on the coffin like one would do just before nailing it shut. So, as you can imagine, there was very little light left in the coffin because of the lid of the coffin being almost on the coffin. Getting back to the church I saw inside the coffin, I saw thousands of people coming out of the church and jumping out of the coffin as fast as they could. However, there were 2 groups of people who refused to leave; in fact, they had their fists held in the air. These 2 groups were standing by the 2 very large pillars I had seen earlier in my dream. These pillars had names. The name of the first pillar was religion and the name of the second pillar was politics.

    The interpretation of the dream was given by Pastor Guy and is as follows:

    A coffin is what you bury the dead in. The coffin in your dream is religious tradition holding the church (the people in the church) in captivity from following Jesus. The two large pillars outside are the gods of the church. The hands belonging to the knuckles in which the lid of the coffin rested on were the hands of the Lord holding the lid from closing all the way till those who were going to leave this traditional church made it out. The hands which were resting on the coffin like they were about to shut it was the hands of the spirit of antichrist who was shutting out the light through lies and deception. This will be a time as the parable in Matt 25 of the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins. The foolish virgins will be those remaining in the coffin and refusing to repent from their gods of religious politics and accept the life of Christ. Those coming out of the coffin are those who recognize the end is here and they came out from among them as God said to do in 2 Cor. 6:14-18. The door is about to shut and be sealed.

    Some additional things the Lord showed me John 5:25 NIV84

    25 I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.

    Those who hear are the ones coming out of the casket.

    The people who standing by the pillars refusing to leave are the ones of whom Jesus says that they are trying to kill Him because there is no room in their hearts for His word. Which is why they did not leave the church in the coffin and why they will try to kill any move of God that would cause people to want to leave the coffin. They prefer the darkness of the coffin where their deeds go unexposed John 3:19-21 NKJV

    And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.
