Today’s Church Honors the Antichrist
Comparing the New Testament to what Christians are doing and have historically done – for most of the last 2000 years—it totally doesn’t line up! What Christians have done is to create a system run by men like a corporation, like the power elite run the world, using and abusing people for their purposes, which is really for Satan’s purposes, they just don‟t realize it. But God is changing that. The biblical example of Church – the Church Jesus is building (Matt. 16:18) – is one which would bless us all, outrageously so. I’ve summed it up in THE TABLE available as a clearer PDF on this link http://notmocked.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/The-Church-Table.pdf

[Note: I know the table could be cleaned up, tightened up, but it’s still useful as is.] In Book 3, WORD: I am Who I Am, I present it in more detail. However, I still only summarize it because a former pastor in that system has written an excellent free book I’ve placed under this link on my website, A Church Beyond Imagination.

While the playlist is broken up into 25 short videos, his material is actually broken down into the following parts:

  1. The False Church (The Lie of the Tithe)
  2. The False Church Covering (The Lie of Institutional Church)
  3. The False Church (False Worship)
  4. The Purpose of Church (The Lie of Going to Church)

For the past 40 years, more or less, God has been calling His people out of the institutional church (those buildings in every neighborhood).
He’s actually been calling for hundreds of years, but has allowed some to hear Him over the past four decades. As He says, “It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy” (Rom. 9:16).
In any case, this movement (also referred to as Simple or Organic church, or emergent), has fallen short because, like institutional Christianity, God’s people have not been faithful to His requirements, since “they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). In turn, there are many free books online (and more for purchase) explaining the same, with some variation. I provide a list with links in this PDF file.

The reason I focus on the book by the Ekklesia Research Group is because that one is the most thorough, clear, free, and with minimal unbiblicalities, which I address throughout the series of books and videos. However, they all have very useful information (everyone I’ve read). As God says, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thess. 5:21-22). Keep the biblical and discard what isn’t biblical. Essentially, God is doing what He set out to do, make His Church (represented by billions of house churches worldwide) spotless and without blemish (Eph. 5:25-27), without any rebellion of any kind. However, He allowed us to do it our way first, so that we could see that we really are a rebellious people who can’t do anything (good) without Him. Just reading that sentence probably made the hairs on the back of your neck spike! Because, we like to think that we’re good people, that we are accomplishing great things for God, when, in reality, what we’ve done is created hell on earth! In contrast, God – through His work on the Cross – enabled us to create a representation of heaven on earth. All we have to do is submit to His lordship. He
clearly says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). This text continues on page 37 of Book-1-Gods-Master-Plan.pdf
