Today we are surrounded by thieves, robbers and liars. As the scriptures say, “the earth belongs to the Lord and the fullness of it”, the earth does NOT belong to Satan. So when Satan and his agents of darkness rule over the earth with their wicked schemes, Satan and his agents of darkness do show themselves to be the ultimate example of thieves, robbers and liars.
I, as a servant of righteousness, a servant of the light, I have Jesus living in me. What I speak are the things that are of Christ. The fruit of those things that I speak are found in the lives of those who receive them. Paul the Apostle said “It is not I that live but Christ that lives in me” – “for me to live is Christ, but to die is gain”. But today the true servants of righteousness are besieged by servants of darkness. These deceivers go about to make children and followers unto themselves, they present themselves as though they were servants themselves of righteousness. They all read the bible and claim authority on it’s purpose and meaning and yet they themselves to NOT bear the image of Jesus Christ, they do NOT suffer with Jesus Christ, they do NOT love as Jesus Christ, they only make a an outward show of love and righteousness, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
The Lord says of them: (Isa 65:2-3) I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts; A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;
Let me speak of this, explain it to you in modern terms so you can understand. When you go to your beautiful church building and you can see all of the pews in neat order. And then you look up at the front of the building and notice all of the green plants and flowers on the raised platform, you may look through stained glass windows out to a perfectly manicured lawn and garden. So you say to yourself, “isn’t this beautiful?” – “Just the right mood music and surroundings to prompt my heart to sacrifice to God” – “Certainly the Lord will accept my sacrifice, is not this what God approves of?”
Certainly you must realize that a man by the name of “Emperor Constantine” murdered many of his own family members to hold on to power. It was Constantine that was responsible for beginning the tradition of church buildings, so that we today call a building church, rather than a people, as the scriptures teach. This building tradition is formed in the image of the tower of babble, where the people in the pews are the bricks, the same shape and size, rather than lively stones, they fill the pews with no individual significance. But Nimrod stands in his elevated position behind the pulpit, it’s as though the people who fill the pews are simply there to elevate Nimrod who walks upon his tower to make himself closer to God.
THIS IS IDOLATRY – THIS IS SACRIFICING UPON ALTARS OF BRICK IN GARDENS!
Another place it is written “they sanctify themselves in gardens behind one tree”, and we know that this one tree they stand behind is the man they call “Pastor”.
(Isa 65:4-6) Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels; Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day. Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,
Talk about graves of dead men and monuments, what comes to my mind are the so called “Church Fathers” of the reformation. I mean, did you know that John Calvin was a trained lawyer, who as a 26 year old novice, wrote “The Institutes of Christendom”? Did you know that John Calvin was a murderer and was called “the tyrant of Geneva”? I mean, did you know that Martin Luther was also a Nicolaitan who taught the false doctrine of infant baptism? Do I need to point out to you of how few so called “Church Fathers” had much image at all that was like Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ was an image despised of men, as the scriptures testify, a man of sorrows, he was NOT like “Smart Theologian, Doctor John MacArthur” who claims that he is like Jesus Christ as he sets up on his perch above the people of Grace Church. (Jas 4:4) Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Now I know that you people don’t like it when I start talking about your idols like this, I only mention the man by name because so many of you people out there think if a man is smart a get’s a few things right, that it’s good enough and you settle for men like JMA. You mistakenly think that God is certainly for you and just like your idol, I am here to tell you that Jesus Christ is NOT like JMA, or you name the men who sacrifice on altars of brick, JESUS IS NOT LIKE THEM! I have got to names names or you just are not going to get the brunt of what I am attempting to communicate.
(Joh 10:1-3) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
Anyone who does not go through Jesus Christ, the door, if they get into the sheepfold, they are a thief and a robber. But those who go through the door of Jesus Christ, they are the true shepherds of the sheep.
Today as I was pondering my life, for me to live is Christ, I became very angry, righteously so. I was angry at the liars, the cheats, the robbers and thieves who steal my right from me to live in Christ. The earth belongs to the Lord and he is the creator of all things, he has paid a dear price, laying his life down for his sheep. And yet the liars, the robbers, the thieves of God’s people do not receive the true brethren, they don’t receive Jesus Christ, they don’t receive Jesus in me. They hold their captives tight and will not let them go, they hate true brothers in Christ, but shake hands with thieves, robbers and liars. They have blood on their hands and how much longer do you think they will continue?
Lord they have stolen from me what is rightfully mine, they have hated me without just cause, their hands are full of blood. How much longer oh Lord will you continue to tolerate these thieves, robbers and liars? Lord Jesus, let your true servants live in you and in you have their being. Let shame and drunken spewing be the reward of those who hate you, but let your glory be seen upon those who love you and keep your words of truth.
