THE DECEIT OF FALSE RELIGION – Christianity Is Not “RELIGION”.


By: Clement Ntukogu –

“RELIGION” is one of the worst things that have ever happened to this world. Countless billions of people have been deceived by false religion. It is better to have no religion than to have a wrong one.

Truth has often been hidden from the people by false religion. The best place to hide a LIE is between two TRUTHS and that is exactly what false religion has done. Truth can be dealt with very easily, but to deal with a lie is often difficult.

Take away the TRUTH, a LIE will remain. The only way to deal with falsehood and counterfeiting is to walk in the light of truth absolutely (seek truth from the Bible), because “half-truth” is still a lie.

The modern day churches have blindfolded their converts and prevent they from seeking the truth from their Bible. Claiming that they are the only God’s spoken person on the earth. They never allow people to search the scriptures by themselves like the Berean Christians in Acts 17:11.

They have taken the advantage of hardship and economic crisis in the world to deceive their converts and make money from them (2 Peter 2:3). By watering down the Bible truth, they have attracted more converts to their own churches (2 Timothy 4:3,4).

What majority of people are practicing today, is NOT the Christianity taught by Jesus Christ and His apostles. It’s a Christianity invented by men and that Christianity is nothing but “RELIGION”.

I am well aware that thousands of you, who will read this post, are very sincere in their desire to be Christian. You truly think that the form of Christianity you grew up practicing is what Jesus Christ and His apostles taught.

Many people assume that every church is following the beliefs, teachings and practices of Jesus Christ. But then, the Bible had shown that NOT every church is actually doing the will of God.

In Matthew 7:21-23; Jesus foretold that there will be many church leaders: bishops, general overseers, general superintendents, priests and pastors that will NOT enter the kingdom of heaven on the last day.

Reason: they have NOT done the Will of God the Father: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practised lawlessness!”

Think about this; If many of the church leaders would NOT enter the kingdom of God on the last day, what about their followers? Would their followers be able to enter? “Can a bad tree bear good fruit?” (Matthew 7:18). Not at all! Their followers would as well be rejected because, “if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch” (Matthew 15:14).

Christianity is for this reason not a matter of “sincerity” or of following the teachings of your church leaders. It is a highly personal matter. It’s a question of you finding out for yourself the “TRUTH” regarding the Christianity that Jesus Christ and His apostles had taught.

Since today’s Christianity is almost a departure from the Christianity recorded in the New Testament, it is vital you pass your own Christian practices through a beam of floodlights, to see whether they’re in line with the Christian practices recorded in the New Testament writings. If they’re not, my heart-felt admonition is that you do something about it before it too late!

Again think about this; if Christ had built just one Church (Matthew 16:18), the one that began in 33 A.D., in Jerusalem (Acts 2:41,47) and was kept as one by the early apostles (Acts 2:42,46; 15:1-19), where do all other churches that exist in the world today come from?

Studies have shown that there is an estimated 37 million different denominational churches in the world, with 50,000 new ones being added every year. And each of these churches has practices, teachings and doctrines that are at variance with those of other churches and that of the church of the early apostles.

They all claim to be followers of Christ and yet they are divided, contradicting and disagreeing with one another other, believing and teaching different things. You have one denomination here teaching one thing and another there teaching quite the opposite.

The other one that was formed the other day is somewhere teaching an entirely new thing. One of them says that item A is not a New Testament doctrine while its neighbor says it is. The one says doctrine A is unacceptable, while the next says doctrine A is acceptable to God.

Specifically, let’s see the ordination of women for instance. It’s noteworthy that while one denominational church accepts as scriptural, and practices the ordination of women as pastors or bishops, you have another denomination that rejects it in totality as being unscriptural.

On the other hand, while many a denominational church condemns the wearing of trousers by women, hair-attachments, earrings and make-ups, other denominations say this practice does not matter, just as quite a few sit on the fence concerning the issue.

In some churches, it is mandatory that women cover their heads, while it is not in other churches. Again, while some churches approve of songs and dances in the church, many other churches consider such acts as unscriptural.

Stop for a while and ponder on this issue. Is it possible that Christ is the head of all these denominational churches? Is it possible that they are all following His teachings? Does He approve of these kinds of divisions, contradictions and disagreements in His church?

And can an average person who is seeking the truth get conversion in the midst of these riots of confusion – one church here teaching and practicing one thing, another over there teaching and practicing the opposite?

“And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?” (Luke 6:39).

THE DUTIES OF MAN ON EARTH

By: Evangelist Theophilus Izobofolo – 

The earth is a place for ‘Soul Game.’ Souls are sent to earth from the spirit realm to play the game of earthly success and to decide their eternal aboard while the game last. Every soul player must live in a body and have a spirit; the soul keeps playing the game called life till death terminates the game via the body.

These games are played with the “Spiritual Law’s of Time” (the Bible), and the physical laws of time (earthly laws). The laws are in levels and are applied according to the stage of the soul in knowledge and experience.

The achievement of earthly success with obedience to the “Spiritual Law’s of Time” (the Bibles), culminates into heavenly boom. Inversely, the achievement of earthly success with disobedience to the “Spiritual Law’s of Time” accord’s hell doom reward.

The fundamental secrets of life to fulfilling credible success on earth and gain eternal life in heaven are derived from the “Spiritual Law’s of Time” (the Bible).

The first fundamental secret to win the ‘Game of Soul’ on earth and make heaven is to;

(1) Acknowledge the existence and supremacy of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

(2) Accept His redemption, believe He died for the remission of your sins and grant you grace, truth and love; and

(3) Use His divine gifts and skills to play the game while it last and wait for his reward…the first purpose of the game (life) is to; fear God and obey his commandments, this is the whole duty of man; Ecclesiastics 12:13 (ESV).

To remain in the faith keep updating and nourishing your mind with the word, honor Him with your praise, listen to divine messages, read spiritual articles, pray without season and use your testimonies to encourage, motivate and revive other saints,  as you continue to play the “Game of Soul.”

The Game Coach (God) is coming quickly. The time keeper (death) is already waiting…repent now, start obeying the “Spiritual Laws of Time” (the Bible)…Manaratha.

Has The World Become More Loving Than The Church?


By: Charles Awuzie – 

Has The World Become More Loving Than The Church?

Disclaimer: This post will upset everyone except those who genuinely love the true church of Christ and desire that the true church emerges from the grip of religion and Mammon.

1) When you resign from your job at Google and start your own business, Google invests cash in your new business. But when you resign from your former church and start a new church, your former G.O lays false accusations on you to discredit you before the people. Between the world and the church, who has shown more love? Judge for yourself.

2) The worldly government of South Africa does not collect tax from businesses with turnover of at least less than R75,750 in a financial year. The Nigerian government gives new businesses almost 18 months tax exemption period.

But New generation Pentecostal Churches in Africa will charge you Tithe the day you start a small corner shop. They will tell you that for God to rebuke devourers from your business, you need to tithe 10% else your business will be cursed. Between the world and the church, who has shown more love? Judge for yourself.

3) When you resign from a secular job, you are paid certain benefits including gratuities but when you resign from a church as a branch pastor, you get nothing except hatred from your former G.O. Between the world and the church, who has shown more love? Also judge for yourself.

4) If you are invited by a corporate organization to speak at their event, you are not expected to raise the funds for your ticket back home because they would have already packaged a good honorarium for you before inviting you…But if a church invites you as a guest speaker in an event, you will be expected to raise funds to transport yourself back to where you came from. Again, between the world and the church, who has shown more love? Judge for yourself.

5) The Corporate Social Responsibility of the Secular world is a huge slap on the face of religious institutions whose leaders galavant from London to New York in private Jets while the host communities of their headquarters have no good hospital. Again, between the world and the church, who is showing more love? Judge for yourself.

6) When the Government of a country introduces a new constitution, they set aside the old one but in the church, after Christ has introduced a New Covenant, we wouldn’t set aside the old covenant because it has tools we can use to manipulate the people. Between the world and the church, who is more genuine? Judge for yourself.

I could go on and on but I know you are not ignorant of the rest of such ills in the church which the corporate organizations in their worldliness heals. A very wealthy Australian Real Estate Mogul said to me in a conference in Umhlanga “Charles, I have given 80% of my wealth to a global charity organization. As a Christian, I wanted to give to the church but I knew that the Senior Pastor would convert my gift to his personal wealth and not reach out to the poor hence I chose to give to a charity organization with a track record of accountability.” I wept. Hence I asked “Has The World Become More Loving Than The Church?”.

Before you make a defensive comment on this post, please read the disclaimer. If it offends you, scroll to the next post on your newsfeed. If it heals you, you are a genuine and responsible member of the body of Christ.

Maranatha!


 

THE GREATEST WORLD ASSET – THE BIBLE (SPIRITUAL LAWS OF TIME)

 

By: Evangelist Theophilus Izobofolo

THE BIBLE – SPIRITUAL LAWS OF TIME!

The ‘Spiritual Laws of Time’ also known as the “HOLY BIBLE”, “THE WORD OF GOD” or JESUS, is the greatest world asset.  It is holy and supreme in content, supernatural in origin, divine in authorship and inexhaustible in its adequacy. It is a miracle book of diversity in unity, infinite in scope, universal in interest, eternal in duration and personal in application.

Indeed it is the masterpiece of God with a complete code of laws, it is the most entertaining and authentic history ever published, expanded by the greatest intellect, steeped in the prayers of many saints and stained in the blood of martyrs.

The ‘Spiritual Laws of Time’ is infinite in all measurement and can break the fetters of the slave. The bible takes the heat out of life fierce fever (brings flexibility for complexity); it takes the pains out of parting, the sting out of death and the gloom out of the grave.

These spiritual laws of time are facts for the future of all lives that “have”, “are” and “will” experience time. They are divided into two testaments; the old and the new. The Old Testament conceals Christ while the New Testament reveals Christ. The old infolds Christ, the new unfolds Christ. The old promises Christ, the new presents Christ. The old pictures Christ, the new produces Christ. The old prophesies Christ, the new proclaims Christ. The old localizes Christ, the new universalizes Christ. The old symbolizes Christ, the new sacrifices Christ. Finally, the Old Testament is a law Christ fulfilled while the New Testament is the love Christ exhibits as an example of the believers and as the firstborn.

The Bible is the greatest human divine treasure, is the only ‘SPIRITUAL LAWS OF TIME’ concerning “divine revelation, world creation, and soul salvation of human destiny. Reality of human destiny, reality of eternity, wonderful inspiration, translation, preservation, unification, sanctification and consummation are all found in the ‘Spiritual Laws of Time.’ The word of God is free from earthly mixture; it is un-borrowed and solitary in greatness.

It identifies with the promotion of liberty. It is the companion and pioneer of commerce and the foundation of civil government. It is a source and support of learning containing and fostering the noblest literature in the world. It is the book of God no tyrant can consume, no tradition can choke and no infidel can corrupt. It is settled in its source and sure in his promise, it is likened to a sword, a fire, a hammer, a lamp, a mirror, as milk, as water, and finally as honey. The spiritual law is the only law that has eternal reward on earth and in heaven. It is the only law that can pardon sin and give life and comfort. It helps to control man’s time on earth as it relates to the three dimensions of man’s life.

The Bible as a complete spiritual law of time, gave birth to various field of studies, and as a law for life to live, it is the foundation of general knowledge of all human endeavors…no one can succeed without it.

WILL EARTHLY TIME REWARD YOU BOOM OR DOOM? – Introduction

Pastor Theophilus Izobofolo

INTRODUCTION

Out of God come the words that created time…the words as laws were spoken to produce light, as a result light and darkness became the first day by which time was framed to be the first of God’s creation.

Genesis 1:3-5; 3Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day” NKJV.

God is timeless, eternal and a spirit. He has no beginning nor ending. His existence is not tied to time limit or control. He created man to enjoy life by living a timeless life of fellowship with him, but the sin of disobedience caused him the glorious divine eternal freedom. Again man was given another chance of life to live from the spiritual death in which he lost his dominion to a life of freedom in obedience to the spiritual laws (commandment) of time, hence living a righteous life through the leadership system of Theocracy. Still he disobeyed God and served other gods and gave himself to wine, weed, women and committing abomination in the sight of God. As a result God destroyed man and beast, but Noah found grace in the sight of the Lord.

Genesis 6:7-8; So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (NKJV).

Because of this, man was put under short time existence by death control due to disobedience to the commandment of the ‘Spiritual Laws of Time’ Atonement was made to cover sin and reconcile man back to God through the blood of animals; again man took these laws for granted; disobeying and sacrificing, and even mocking God.

And God saw that the blood of animals could not save man from his judgment, then he sent his son ‘’JESUS’’ to die for the sins of the world, to shed His blood for the atonement of the sins of the world, and after His death and resurrection, the ‘’HOLY SPIRIT’’ came to lead us into all truth, comfort us in the present suffering of this world (spiritual death) and to bear witness in us that we are sons of God.

Romans 8:16-18; 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together(NKJV).

By virtue of His birth, death, burial and resurrection, WE can’t be left out from the promise of eternity with God, so we can be in the original position before man fell. Living in this earthly place of survival of the fittest…man needs God to manage time to live a victorious life of dominion over Satan, to reap fruitfulness in all life endeavors, to dwell in financial freedom and live in divine health. It is sure that the time keeper (death) must come, but it is a temporal rest from earthly times, but for we the believers it is a state of deep sleep: meaning that at the end of time death cannot destroy us (God’s Elects) again.

Ecclesiastes 12:13; 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. 14 For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil(NKJV).

Folks! Know that the earthly times are meant to answer the life question of ‘’WHERE WILL YOU SPEND YOUR TIMELESS LIFE AFTER DEATH?’’ Also being that life challenges are the distractions to effective time management, this bible will help proffer solutions on how time can be manage to work with wisdom. It will enable the lovers of time management to understand the mystery of the ‘Spiritual Laws of Time’ (The Bible), and the physical laws of time (human ethics) in achieving all-round success in life and in heaven. The bible will help to explain the how, when, where and what of the spiritual laws to man and to God.

The bible unveils the treasures that awaits those who lose their pleasures on earth for the purpose of righteousness, it also unveils the torture and rupture nature of those who gain their pleasures on earth at the penalty of disobeying the ‘SPIRITUAL LAWS OF TIME.’ God being the ‘’GREATEST ORDER OF DIVINITY’’ is the author of the ‘Spiritual Laws of Time’ (The Bible).

The essence of this message is to remind the individual who thinks their lives is a treasure for the purpose of pleasure and earthly benefit; that it is borrowed life and will be accounted for. Folks! serving God and obeying His commandment is the whole duty of man.

Please, if you have decided to follow Jesus, just say this after me;

“Lord Jesus i come to you today, i accept you as my Lord and personal savior, i believe that you died for me, was buried and resurrected the third day; i confess my sins, i forsake them and never to be repeated; wash me with your blood and make whole again; from today i am saved, am justified and born again. in Jesus name. Amen.”

Congratulations! Please identify with a bible believing church to establish a strong relationship with God. God bless you.
