May God's will be done through His Word in your life. 

In Christ, and may His Kingdom come,

RENOUNCE RELIGION. EVEN THE DEVILS HAVE IT.

EVEN THE DEVILS HAVE RELIGION
A. Brother

“Then they asked Him,
‘What must we do to do the works God requires?’ 
Jesus answered,
‘The work of God is this:
to believe in the One He has sent.’”
John 6:28

            The religious want religious answers.  This answer from the lips of the Son of God did not satisfy the religious then, and it will not satisfy you if you want religion now.

          Religion seeks but never finds, because religion rejoices in its own activities, and in the search itself.  Religion wants prescriptions, and lists, and tasks.  Religion wants a clear outline of “minimum standards”. 
          Religion desires a physical house of worship and a creed and an organization.  Religion desires structure and rules. 
          Religion is never the answer, because religion exists to create more structure, and more requirements, and sustains itself through order and repetition. 
          The religious want to do things religiously, which simply means to do something over and over to earn a feeling of absolution or worthiness. 
          The religions of the world exist by teaching that without their religious structure and adherence to their many requirements, no man can know God.
          Religion is what people get when they get what they want. 
          Jesus didn’t come to give what people want, but rather what they need, and what they must have if they would inherit eternal life with God the Father.

          Religion kills.  Religion imprisons.  Religion deceives.  Religion takes people to hell by the trainload.  All man-made religious structures stand worthless and condemned since Christ.          
          The ekklesia of God, the Holy Nation, the Household of God, the Family of God, His Treasured Possession, is made up, not of those who seek religion or religious experience, but those who believe in Jesus with a saving belief, an empowered belief that comes when God the Father draws a person to Jesus.  Nobody can be part of this true Body of Christ on earth except he or she be drawn by the Father.  These called and chosen know Jesus’ voice, and will not follow religion, or any other shepherd.  His sheep know Him, and follow Him only, doing the things He does, having His mind, being led and empowered by His Spirit.
          Does any of this sound like your religion?  If you list your religion as Christianity, and say you are a believer in Jesus because you go to a Christian church building and participate in the activities and services, and because you sometimes read your Bible and even pray, and that makes it so, then you may be entirely deceived, as the religious Jews were in their day.  If you think you are saved because you believe in the “basic principles and precepts” of the Bible, and believe that Jesus is the Christ, please listen. 
          Perhaps your deep discontent, which you express to nobody but your own inner self, is because you know you are not truly experiencing the Christ-life, and abiding in Christ, but are just being a religious ‘Christian’!
          Many of us have been raised in this religion.  Many of us were caught in this religious trap.  Many of us are hearing the voice of Christ, the Word of Christ, for the first time, calling us out from this empty life of observance and spectatorship. 
          Come with us on the only adventure worth having in this life, the Life of Christ lived in us, the fullness of Christ growing in us, the Way, the Truth, and the Life lived out through us.
          If you truly believe, your life will be Christ’s, and He will live in you, and His Spirit will empower you to live a life of love and sacrifice for others as Jesus did.    Remember, even the devils have religion!

AT THE CENTER OF THE CREATED UNIVERSE IS A HEART

There is back of all things in this created universe a heart; not just a mind or a will, a design, a reason, a power, a fiat, but a heart.

For God loved the world so much.... (John 3:16 NLT)

There is a great weight made to rest upon that little word "for" - "For God so loved the world." We say that John 3:16 is the heart of the gospel: but it is much more than that, it is the heart of the universe. There is back of all things in this created universe a heart; not just a mind or a will, a design, a reason, a power, a fiat, but a heart. We are familiar with the attempts to prove there is a design in creation, that there is a mind behind the universe, and that a will brought it into being. That is all quite good and right; but we are not so often asked to consider that behind it all there is a heart - and more heart than anything else. The reason, the will, the design, come from the heart. Everything takes its rise in the heart of God.
We have said much about the thoughts of God, the counsels of God. The nearer we get to the very center of things, the more we shall become affected by this fact, that right there in the center is a heart. It is a heart that we shall come to eventually; not an explanation to satisfy our reason, not a demonstration of power, but just a heart - but a mighty heart: and when we use that word rightly, we simply mean love. We speak of people being heartless. That means that they are without all that love means. Love is not the governing thing in their thoughts, actions, and motives; they are strangers to love. Heart then, for us, means love, and when we say that back of all things and at the center of all things there is a heart, we mean there is love.

By T. Austin-Sparks from: His Great Love - Chapter 1

YOUR CHILDREN HAVE FORSAKEN ME

"Why should I forgive you? Your children have forsaken me and sworn by gods that are not gods.  I supplied all their needs, yet they committed adultery and thronged to the houses of prostitutes....should I not avenge myself on such a  nation as this?"

I see the children and hear the children of affluence and rebellion screaming for their toys and their lives of privilege, deriding those who disagree with them, marching against anyone who stands against sin.  I see the older generations capitulating, giving them their toys and their privileges, bowing before these dangerous children.

The hatemongers are among us, rising up to defend their adultery and prostitution. Their savage screams are hears in social media, on the internet, on television, at the movies, in the public squares.  They must be allowed their lawless, sinful ways or they will resort to verbal and even physical violence. They will destroy any who stand in their way.

Satan's shock troops. Children borne of concession to sin, rebellious and evil, they roam the streets seeking to find those who disagree. They profane the name of God and despise all authority.  And we are to blame.

Those of us who claim to follow Christ have capitulated in the churches, in our homes, in the streets, and in the halls of government. We have stood silently by, absorbed in our own lives and struggles, caring more about our own comfort than we care about the Kingdom of God.  

Now we pay the piper.  Stand strong in the Lord, those of you who fall on your knees every day and seek Him.  He will defend us, though the times are coming when many will fall away.

The Lord God Almighty will avenge, after these times have run their course, and culminate in the One Who Stands Against God being worshiped on the earth.  The blood of His Servants will not have been shed in vain.

GOD HAS DECLARED A FAMINE.

"The days are coming," declares the Sovereign Lord, 
"when I will send a famine through the land---
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.
Men will stagger from sea to sea
and wander from north to east,
searching for the word of the Lord,
but they will not find it."
--Amos 8: 11,12

God is declaring again, for our current time, a famine.  This is already being evidenced by the empty, dry deserts within our cultures around the world, devoid of the word of God. Even the so-called Christian societies have no vital words of real hope. God has declared a famine, and we are in it. Those who call on the Lord, call out now, call often, for Him to give us His word again, to nourish us like vines attached to the Christ, our True Vine, and to reveal Himself to His chosen.  

Do not look to the worldly churches for this Word. They themselves have abandoned the Word of God for an uneasy truce with the world.

Look only to the Lord, our Sovereign God, who will keep His own safe in the palm of His hands, no matter what happens around us.  Look to Him only, and seek the Living Word, Christ.
