The church of today has become a business instead of the Body of Christ which Jesus Christ Built and died for so many years ago. We have entered into a Covenant with the worldly system (Revelation refers to her as the whore of Babylon) and have removed Jesus from His rightful place over His Church! Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, etc. have sold their souls to the world for fame, fortune, money and material things. They rather compete against one another... who preach better, who has the most members, etc. They no longer go after the things of God but have made covenants with the world/ prince of this world/ satan, that devil. They have laid with the harlot called Babylon.
Lets take this a little further shall we. In the book of Numbers in chapter 22, we find the story of a man called Balaam. Balaam was asked of the king of Moab, to curse the children of Israel in return the king promised to bless Balaam with riches, fame, etc.
Now lets look at this covenant we have made with the government (system of Babylon/ commercial commerce). So the church becomes a corporation/incorporation with the government or enters into a covenant with the government in return the government grants the church certain benefits, such as tax exemption under the 501c3 system of commerce, and then in return the church sells her soul to the world and are confined to the rules and laws of the worldly system they have put in the place of God.
Balaam agreed to curse the children of Israel even after God forbid him to do so. In doing so, Balaam signed his soul to be under the king of Moab for some riches, a name of fortune, a little fame, etc. and all he had to do to get all this was disobey God and follow the rule of a man name... Balak, the king of Moab.
Today, churches have done the same thing. And in doing so, they have put themselves under the authority of a system that has nothing to do with the statues and laws of God. They have signed a covenant to obey and follow every and all rules and laws that the government has, have, or will set into play.
HINT: The outcome of Balaam is when he couldn't curse the Children of Israel/ God, He instead set a stumbling block in their path. Numbers 25:1 -9; 31:15 -17( see also: II Peter 2:14-15; Jude1:11; Revelation 2:14)
So lets look at a few definitions here:
* Corporation: A corporation is an artificial being, invisible, intangible, and existing only in contemplation of law. All corporations, both for-profit and non-profit (501(c)(3), are an artificial, separate legal person or entity created by law and established by the state that is composed of individuals who exist in a body politic. A corporation is a collection of individuals united in one body by such a grant of privileges as secures succession of members without changing the identity of the body and constitutes the members for the time being an artificial person or legal being capable of transacting the corporate/company business like a natural person in commerce. Corporations are created for trading, selling, exchanging wholesale or retail merchandising either for-profit or non-profit (501(c)(3). Because of their legal recognition as business entities, are the embodiment of State-granted business franchises, merchandising and engaging in commerce according to the terms of their charter/Articles of Incorporation.
* System: A group pf personnel, material equipment, and procedures which combine to accomplish a specific purpose.
* Dictatorship: : a form of government in which absolute power is concentrated in a dictator or a small clique. A government organization or group in which absolute power is so concentrated. It is a system of tyranny.
* Tyranny: oppressive power ; especially : oppressive power exerted by government . A rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force.
A system may provide freedom or slavery and freedom exists only under authority. A business operates under the authority of management to provide freedom to employees who operate within the boundaries of that authority.
As a agent of the government, you are required by law to carry out the order of the government regardless, for you have given yourself over to a new master to govern you and your soul.
You think I am lying, read further:
In 1954 Senator Lydon B. Johnson slipped an amendment on the end of the Ways and Means Bill approving funds for each agency of the government of this Act as to what they could spend in support to a political candidate. This Bill was passed without any public debate by Congress.
The Act of Congress stated any corporation organized under this Act is an Agency of the United States.
This is the I.R.C. section 501(c)(3).
It gives the IRS supreme access to the agencies of the 501(c)(3). I.R.C. section 501(c)(3) states that 50l corporations incorporated under this section are exempted from taxes.
Any corporation organized under the 1954 Act of Congress are an Instrument (channel) of the United States if such corporation, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, educational purposes……….
What the I.R.C. is saying is that a 501(c)(3) is a business corporation which is an instrument of the government organized for religious purposes with a privilege of tax exemption to operate a non-profit business in commerce.
If a church is incorporated with a 50l(c)(3) non-profit business franchise corporation, it is an instrument of the government for religious purposes and for doing business of religion.
A Pastor I know asked the question, "Tell me how does the church run
today without the state?"
WELL... IT RUNS BY GOD THROUGH FAITH DEPENDING ON HIM TO GIVE YOU THE
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING TO USE THAT SAME KNOWLEDGE WITH WISDOM IN
SEEKING HIM FIRST WHILE CASTING ALL YOUR CARES UPON HIM AND HE WILL ADD
UNTO YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO CARRY ON AND FAINT NOT, TO FINISH THE
RACE THAT HE HAS SET BEFORE YOU.
DON'T YOU KNOW THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH HIM!!!
I NEVER READ THAT JESUS WENT TO THE ROMAN EMPEROR/ GOVERNORS FOR ANY
ASSISTANTS IN HIS 3 AND A HALF YEARS ON THIS EARTH.
IS HE NOT SUPPOSE TO BE OUR EXAMPLE ON HOW WE WALK, TALK, AND LIVE?
Question: DID YOU KNOW THAT THE BIBLE TELLS US TO "STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED" AND THAT "PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE"
The Babel of Genesis 11 is seen as having three systems: The religious system, the political system, and the commercial system.
The religious system was one world religion. The term “before the Lord” means in open rebellion before Yahweh. The tower was an organized effort to bring people to a central location and to unite their allegiance. The people worshiped the sun, moon, and stars. Some worshiped idols, beast, and various spiritual gods. A temple at its apex would provide a center and an altar where man could offer their sacrifices and worship of their particular god(s).
The political Babylon centered on the unity and was enforced by their great leader Nimrod, which means “let us rebel.” He began to be a “mighty hunter,” which is believed to mean that he was a hunter of man or an enslaver of man. The term “mighty one” to describe Nimrod is the same word used for giants in Genesis chapter six. History records that he said to them, “Depart from the judgment of the Yahweh and adhere to the judgment of Nimrod.”
Nimrod’s plan was to have a one-world government and one leader of all people through mass unity. As “all one people” they would have no need for God. Nimrod would be god unto the people. Lucifer had found a body he could live in and be worshiped. He became the perfect blueprint of the coming Antichrist. God saw man’s purpose and declared “nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” The Lord confounded their language to squelch their rebellion so He would not have to destroy every living creature again and scattered them abroad. But the rebellion continued and is still continuing until the day of the Lord.
Hammurabi, the descendant of Nimrod, was the political ruler who chiefly established the greatness of Babylon, the world’s first metropolis. He accomplished what Nimrod was not able to succeed. He ruled the entire known world at that time know as Babylonia. By far the most remarkable of the Hammurabi records is code of laws, the earliest-known example of a ruler proclaiming publicly to this people an entire body of laws, arranged in orderly groups. The codes, which we call statutes today, then regulated in clear and definite strokes the organization of society. It was reserved for the genius of Hammurabi to make Babylon his metropolis and weld together his vast empire by a uniform system of law.
His Babylonian Empire system consisted of the following characteristics:
1.) Ability to contract, including deeds, conveyances, bonds, receipts and bank accounts.
2.) Interest on loans and ability to receive interest for money.
3.) Ability to trade and operate business through corporations.
4.) All religious worshipers organized by contract/corporation as branch of the Kingdom
5.) Government tax system.
6.) Individuals and businesses were taxed and the wealth is redistributed.
7.) Advanced legal system with courts that hear cases plead by individuals.
8.) Courts consist of one judge and twelve jurors.
9.) Cases can be appealed to a higher court where a group of judges hear the case.
10.) Legal decisions by judges are recorded and used to determine future cases.
11.) Individuals in cases are asked to give an oath by gods before entering their testimony.
12.) All pleas and testimonies are recorded.
13.) Once a decision is given it is enforced and record of the case is given to all involved.
14.) Great stress is laid on the production of written evidence.
15.) Lawsuits were common.
16.) Physicians and veterinary surgeons could be sued for bad work.
17.) Birth, marriage and death were registered by the Government.
18.) Marriage was considered a contract registered by the Government.
19.) Divorce was permitted; men were required to pay the ex-wife and children.
20.) Government could take any piece of land for a price, if needed.
21.) Government could demand men for the army for a limited number of years. Religious abjection’s are
22.) Government regulates liquor traffic.
23.) Schools are run by the government.
24.) Labor is specialized.
25.) The position of women was free and dignified.
26.) Adoption was common and carried out in the courts.
27.) Government is centralized and “big.”
28.) The population of Babylonia was of many races.
Everyone had an identification number (Social Security Number which you receive at birth is our identification number) ; the slaves were marked or branded with their identification number on the forearm of the arm or on their hand which could only be removed by a surgical operation (this is what is stated in Revelation as the mark of the beast. This has started in some states known as The Real ID Act).
What other Nation that you are familiar with has the preceding characteristics? The United States of America! The present day Babylonian system that covers the whole world as we know it today.
This is just a small blog of my studies. There is much more out there to learn. I am not telling you what you need to accept but the choice is yours.
So my final question to you is... WILL YOU BE LIKE THE 3 HEBREW BOYS? (DANIEL 3:16 -18) OR WILL YOU BE LIKE BALAAM? (NUMBERS 22).
IT'S TIME TO CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM WILL YOU SERVE... BAAL OR THE LORD! (I KINGS 18: 21)
