LOCAL CHURCH
SURVIVAL PLAN

As the world creeps closer and closer to destroying the Lord's Church, are you living for Jesus Christ, or are you living for the real estate and your résumé?

Learn ways to defend your church against attacks by Caesar and sodomites.

 

 

This is a discussion of the local church in the End Times and ways to survive the hate of the Godless.

This is not a cry for a return to patriotism, the US Constitution, or a call to arms in any way.

The assumption here is that you and your local church family are NOT Laodiceans, who lived for riches and fame. I am writing to biblical Philadelphians. Read Revelation chapters two and three to find the context of these two churches.

We have reached a point of no return. God has vomited Christendom, and Christ is standing outside knocking at the door of the fallen Church. This Church is a Whore, and it only needs to be organized by Pope Francis, or some other slop hog spiritual bastard, to become the Church of the Great Tribulation.

Thus, how shall we then live in the End Times?

I shall be dealing with issues, one by one, and not following a very logical order. The issues we face in these Last Days are not very orderly because they are mostly driven by wicked men and backslidden church members. There is no order to what Satan brings us.

 

THE NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION ISSUE

Please read my articles on the unregistered local church before reading on:

THE UNREGISTERED CHURCH
Christian Churches Should Unincorporate to Please God, Not Just to Avoid Additional Trouble With Government

THE UNREGISTERED CHURCH
Legal Issues
By Pastor Kirk Coffia
Reprinted from The Plumbline
Unregistered Christian Churches Should Avoid Becoming Corporations Or Unincorporated Associations

THE POLITICAL ISSUE AND THE UNREGISTERED CHURCH

HERE IS BLACK'S LAW DICTIONARY'S DEFINITION OF A CHURCH
This is very old and predates the formation by the US Government of the Non Profit Corporation. As a church, once you know each other, and as long as you meet regularly, you are a legal entity, and the courts and laws cannot force you to open your meetings to the public. This is because a church has full rights to be as private as a private home, or as private as any of the individuals making up that church. Since it is private and not public, a church (unincorporated) has all the civil rights of an individual citizen. A Nonprofit Corporation has NO rights, and it is an instrumentality of the United States Government.

We have reached a point at which it is becoming risky to unregister. This is because the politically correct mob, and the courts, are seeing deregistration as a way to evade the sodomite issue. They will then resist all efforts to unregister under color of human rights. The fact is, that is exactly the reason for unregistering at this stage of the game, that is, before nonprofit corporations are locked into slavery to Caesar forever.

It is wicked that any church would give Caesar power to regulate what is Christ's Church, but that is what 99% of churches in America have done. The lust for a better offering is at the root of this. There is NO biblical apologetic in the Bible for putting the government on the church board of leaders. There is plenty of Scripture to prove it is an evil choice.

So, your escape may be messy because your are now where you do not belong. But, you must try to unregister. The reason for this is that ONLY a private gathering can determine who will attend their gatherings. An unregistered church is no different than some party down the street as to rights. The home owner can decide who enters his home, and the leaders of an unregistered church can refuse anyone entry, and the court will not hear the case. The court is not permitted to rule on a matter of religion, and an unregistered church is nothing but religion.

It is also VERY helpful if your church is not too big to meet in a home or rented building. If you have a monster of a local church, you can unregister, but you are stuck with meeting in a church house, and the courts are far more likely to claim that you are offering a public service there. In a home, it is easily proven that the home owner is in charge and can totally regulate entry to meetings. So, I have little hope for you people in huge churches. And, I mean anything over 100 people. You are essentially doomed unless you break up into several groups and meet in homes.

The biggest road block to this option is the pastor. Pastors today are not servants like Paul and Jesus who were content to move about from home to home. Pastors today want glorious buildings that are monuments to their public relations skills, and where those pastors can rule like little Popes.

The most simple option for the average Christian man is to find several families who understand these biblical principles, and abandon the Big House, and start a house church. And, do NOT accept the help of the Southern Baptist Convention or some other denominations or corporate assistance. This takes you right back to being a clone of Caesar's nonprofit corporation scam.

Finally, stop worrying about nonprofit corporation local churches who are being attacked by the government. They refuse to free themselves the legal and logical way, so they end up fighting to keep their real estate.

Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

 

 

 

PATRIOTISM AND DEMOCRACY

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."
Samuel Johnson

When you find a pastor waving the flag and exalting the US Military, you have very likely found a scoundrel. This is because Samuel Johnson was right back in 1775, and he is still right.

Back in the Old Testament days of Israel, no one was patriotic as we understand patriotism. They WERE the people of God, and they WERE the nation, and its rulers were integral to God's plan for Israel.

But, the New Testament clearly shows that neither Jesus, nor his Apostles showed or taught patriotism to their government. You will find nowhere in the New Testament where anyone was waving a Roman banner or praising the Roman Legionnaires.

Please read this article. You need to see that Christian pastors and local churches need a totally new reset to go back to the historic plan of the Lord's Church for the Age of Grace.

LIVING WITH CAESAR IN THE LIBERAL MARXIST MODEL
This is a discussion of local church fellowship under persecution and Marxist type conditions.

Let me make something very clear-- In the End Times there will be no rights. Already, we are regulated to the point where many of our alleged rights are only on paper. Governments all over the world violate their own founding documents and principles, as does the USA. It is the height of madness to imagine that waving the flag in the church house will cause the US Government, and the local police, to back off.

Furthermore, the US flag now stands for abortion, divorce, perpetual war for no reason other than to control oil prices, and for rebellion in most of those who do wave it. You have no business importing this lawless culture into the Lord's Church in the form of patriotism.

Finally, America was never a Christian nation. Our Founding Fathers were Deists. Some, like Benjamin Franklin, were filthy dogs. The only reason you see references to God in our founding documents is because those men were dealing with very religious people, and they needed to justify their rebellion against England as an act of God. And, some of you suckers are still falling for the line. George Washington and the other Founders were very busy securing their own financial interests, and all of this was hammered into action in Masonic Lodges, of which George Washington was the Worshipful Master.

Lay the flag down, sir, and just wave that old black backed King James Bible please.

If you refuse to cleanse your local church of patriotism, you may one day find the government calling on you to support their programs by increasing the patriotic message. This is because Liberals are lazy. They talk about ruling the world, but the ones really moving the world toward the New World Order are the Conservatives. Adolph Hitler was a conservative, and he waved millions of flags, AND HE ENLISTED THE LUTHERAN AND CATHOLIC CHURCH, to promote his message via patriotism. At some point, you may find that there is no turning back from your mongrel hybrid zeal.

As I write, Donald Trump, a vile libido driven degenerate, is raising a very conservative mass of followers. If he is elected, I have no doubt that he may be the man who gathers America into a form of revised Nazism.

 

SODOMY AND OTHER POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ISSUES

1. Require all marriages to be before the Justice of the Peace.

ONLY have the reception or celebration at the church house. Pastors, make an air tight rule that you and your local church require membership of anyone celebrating anything in your gatherings.

 

2. Make official policies that squeeze the wicked out of the schedule

Make a policy in writing that all civil formalities are to be outside the church house facilities. Another possible plan would be to post a calendar of all events, and make sure there is something planned on every Friday evening, Saturday all day, and all day Sunday. Also, pastors, stop chasing hearses. Make it known that you will only bury born again members of your assembly. Make a church rule that funerals are held at funeral homes only. If you get out of owning real estate, sodomites will be put off by the fact that you have no place to which they can take the police and file a complaint.

This book is written by a missionary in the Philippines who was tested and troubled greatly. But, the churches he planted in Christ thrived. This study will show many ways the local church can not only survive, but live in victory in a collapsing society.

 

3. Assign people to follow all sodomite couples or singles who enter the gathering.

Never send a kid into a restroom alone. One of the leading men or aged women must be in there with them unless it is a home based restroom where the kid can lock himself in. Anyone suspected of being a sodomite must be considered potential trouble. If an altercation transpires, make known AHEAD OF TIME that on a certain signal everyone is to leave quickly so that the gathering vanishes. When the police arrive, the sodomites will have no one to file a complaint against. This will only work if you are unincorporated.

 

4. Stop trying to win souls when the local church is gathered.

Teach the people to return to the method of evangelism used by Jesus and the Apostle Paul-- win souls between Sundays. Make local church gathering attendance by invitation only. Any surprise "guest" must be able to prove which member invited him. If a guest claims to be born again, ask them Bible questions, and if they stumble, or if they claim they are Bible illiterate, ask them for their name and phone so you can call them during the week, and explain that uninvited guests are not welcome.

 

5. Post no signs and no ads in papers as to your assembly and its gatherings.

Advertising is a corporate thing in America, and Caesar will see you as reverting to corporate behavior. Also, place no sign on the lawn where you meet. Perhaps some colored balloons would be best. Tell everyone to bring a six pack of Coke or a bag of potato chips and carry them into the meeting place. These could be kept in the trunk (boot) of the car for reuse over and over. This way, the gathering can be legally called a party. Do not give your gathering a name. That will make most pastors wretch until they do jail time for being "Baptists" instead of for being a Bible believer.

 

6. If you suspect you have been infiltrated.....

Stand up, and say so out loud,"We have a visiting agent or spy looking into our fellowship this morning. We want to welcome him, and we hope he learns what it means to be born again by faith in Jesus Christ."

Once you are SURE he is a spy, quietly ask the person to leave, or refuse them admittance. Tell them you have figured them out, and you do not appreciate their intrusion by stealth. Offer to meet them for coffee during the week and answer their questions. You could also turn that gathering into nothing but Bible reading and singing. The spy will have nothing to report later. If you are Pentecostal, lay hands on the spy, and pray for him until he gets fed up and leaves.

 

7. Move your place of gathering regularly

This is important so that snoops cannot find you easily. Meet in a park or on a farm on nice days, and be ready to turn the gathering into simply fellowship, refreshments, and light games so the agent provocateur cannot gather intelligence. Be aware that drones may be used when you meet outside.

 

8. Warn your people not to talk about ANY politically incorrect things in fellowship times.

Save that for teaching sessions, and then back up everything with Scripture. If you are being infiltrated or spied on, make a very strict rule that people use ONLY first names. The Russian Baptists did this so that when someone was arrested they could not give full names under interrogation. Also, as with officers in combat who ask not to be saluted in the open, tell people not to "salute" the pastor by giving him any title. I would be very happy to just be Steve. If I do not have the gifts to edify the saints, no title or degree of honor will fix that. If I do edify the saints, no honor is needed to receive their respect.

 

9. Do not use democracy to make decisions.

This again implies that you observe the Government's methods of order, as would one of their nonprofits. Do not keep minutes of meetings. LEAVE NO PAPER TRAIL. Make all decisions with the leading men only, and never take action until you have one mind, as Paul instructed. Burn your church constitution, by-laws, and anything that once regulated you other than the King James Bible. Do not keep church data on a computer, none! The courts are still forced to drop any case where the Bible is the only standard of life in any group. The only legal way to convict a church is to prove they failed to observe their non-biblical written documents.

 

10. As to soul winning and visitation:

Stop all door to door visitation. Soul winning needs to revert to the methods of Jesus and Paul. Win souls one on one in the market place and with lost friends. Stop trying to do mass blast efforts like street preaching and waving signs at intersections. Present day people are part of the new culture of swine who hate Jesus Christ and know why they hate him. If you cast your pearls before swine, they will rend you, and Jesus does not encourage that.

Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

 

11. Stop inviting guest speakers to come and address your gatherings.

This must be only very rare, and you must make NO compromise as to the guest speaker's heritage. If you have not seen a preacher of evangelist for some time, assume he may have been affected by compromise, and may even be willing to turn you in to the government for some advantage. We must realize that some Christians will turn coat and become government agents.

 

12. Stop exalting one man as pastor.

If other men in the assembly can teach the Word, share the edification duties around so that if the "pastor" is eliminated by circumstances of government intrigue, other men can pick up where he left off. The New Testament Church had a plurality of leaders, and you Fundamental Baptists are in for great sorrow when your Lord Bishop is hauled off the jail. The ongoing practice of keeping the men subservient to the pastor is deadly. I have heard Baptist preachers declare with brashness that they believe in "pastoral rule." This is not in the Bible because there is only one verse with the word "pastor" in it, and it says nothing about ruling.

Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

If you are a lard ball and seldom find yourself serving the saints between Sundays, and seldom working other than sitting in your Papal office, you deserve to sit in jail for being the big cheese instead of making Christ head and ruler of the local church.

 

13. Ownership

As a group entity, own as little as possible other than a King James Bible. Ownership creates a target because wicked men know that, whatever you cling to, you will be much easier to subdue if they threaten to take it away from you. You may want to do as African churches do and ask people to buy hymn books, and carry in your own Bible and hymn book. Pick up all trash and literature that could incriminate you later. Realize that if you rent a public building, your privacy is still valid, but the place could be bugged.

 

14. In regard to all functions of the local church.....

You must make them so radical and absolutely identical to the early Church of the Apostles that no sodomite or agent of Satan would want to be caught near your assembly for fear of becoming a suspect with national spy agencies. You must use your obedience to Christ to make yourselves a virtual pariah to the wicked around you. Thus, ONLY those sinners who really desperately want the salvation of Jesus Christ will venture into your midst. And, for the record, you may have read that for the first time here. I have never heard this before, but I believe it is the real key to keeping the wolf away from the door as much as is possible. When an agent of the Government, or a spy of the wicked, seems to be in your midst, appoint men and aged women to move in on them and start praising the Lord and opening the Bible to force the creep to wet his pants, thus.....

Member, "Did you come from a church with a pastor who taught the Bible?"

Agent, "Oh, yes, and what a blessing he was to me."

Member, "I have read something in the Bible that you may be able to help me with. Do you have a Bible?"

Agent, (Usually not, but maybe) "I have my Bible here"

Member, "Please open it to Psalm 91."

Then your member reads the WHOLE PSALM, and asks, "Do you think we have to be careful that such wicked people do not infiltrate our church gatherings?"

By this point, the agent will know the jig is up, and he will probably excuse himself. But, he will not be able to claim that he was mistreated.

You could also ask the agent or spy to open in prayer. This often is the best way to case out a devil. They do not know the language, or they fall back on Episcopalian or Catholic vocabulary.

 

15. Stealth attacks by groups other than government

I tuned a piano of a Fundamental Baptist church in an Arizona town near us. This town was almost totally dominated by Mormons, and it was typical of towns where Mormons dominate-- the Mormons in the town were mean tempered toward anyone not a Mormon. They would almost force new residents to at least visit the Mormon church once.

A Lutheran older lady customer of mine moved to the town, and two young men hounded her over and over to come to the Mormon church. She began to tremble one time, and one of the young men got guilty and told the other one they should leave her alone.

A teen age boy from the Mormon church started attending the Fundamental Baptist church in town, and he expressed doubts about Mormonism. The Baptists were excited and started hugging him for Jesus. The boy finally "walked the aisle," made a profession of faith, and was baptized. He started dating a girl in the church, and after some time got her pregnant. He at once abandoned the Baptists, and when he returned to the Mormon church, the youth group had a celebration event to rejoice in a job well done. The whole thing was planned by the pastor and leaders.

In the coming days evil groups in cults and in the Roman Catholic Church will play very rough. Any local church with a real Christ-like testimony will be attacked over and over.

You do not need a visit from the FBI or Homeland Security to be under attack. It is very urgent NOW to start vetting everyone new in your midst, no matter how highly they were recommended by their former pastor. Spend the money to get their history from one of these online people checking sites. Google images to see if they come up, and then read the article cited. Ask around town to see what their history is in regard to churches. Once you get the sense that they are not what they claim to be, run them out the door. Any lies or errors of information are 100% worthy of execution. By that I mean, run them off. Do not challenge them because they will have a cover story ready.

The coming days will not be a good time for pastors who are wimps, nor will pastors who sit in their offices and stare at Top Gear and porn be defenders of their churches. Only pastors who are among the members, AND who go into the market place every day as Paul did in Ephesus, will have the information needed to defend the Flock of God.

 

16. Stealth by YOU

Let me show you an example of the stealth of Paul:

Acts 23:12 And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
13 And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.
14 And they came to the chief priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul.
15 Now therefore ye with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down unto you to morrow, as though ye would enquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or ever he come near, are ready to kill him.
16 And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.
17 Then Paul called one of the centurions unto him, and said, Bring this young man unto the chief captain: for he hath a certain thing to tell him.
18 So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me unto him, and prayed me to bring this young man unto thee, who hath something to say unto thee.
19 Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that thou hast to tell me?
20 And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire thee that thou wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would enquire somewhat of him more perfectly.
21 But do not thou yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.
22 So the chief captain then let the young man depart, and charged him, See thou tell no man that thou hast shewed these things to me.
23 And he called unto him two centurions, saying, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Caesarea, and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night;
24 And provide them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the governor.

In my pastoring of four churches, I had people who were snoops for me. They were never to do harm or cause trouble for anyone, but they were to keep an eye on the wicked. I had three public school teachers and two school secretaries in one church I pastored, and they warned parents what classes and teachers to avoid. Thus, the parents would go to the principle early on and demand their kid be in a certain class to avoid issues. Some of my stealth contacts were even unsaved, and I am not sure that is a good idea, but they were useful. A Christian cop is priceless if, in regard to his attitude, he is shooting the same direction as you are. In all of this, your motives are clear from the Word of God:

A. Psalms 82:1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

As leaders in the Lord's Church all godly men must be defenders of the saints, and NOT ONLY the saints they like. The ones who are the least wise and mentally slow must be seriously defended because they are weak and vulnerable. It would be good for one of two men to have a permit to carry. One pastor in a church which met in a community center had a Ruger laying in the podium. This is not for official spies, but in coming days devil possessed crazies will become more and more of an issue.

B. Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

CAESAR'S NATIONAL ATTACK ON THE CHURCH

We all have to answer Christ's teaching.....

Matthew 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

We talk big while we are still safe in our meeting houses. But, if our boasting of giving our life for Jesus is for real, why have we handed Christ's church, that is, the real estate and organization, to the IRS and the Government to manage and help us collect the offering? Caesar is not going to help you take up your cross and follow Jesus. Damn your nonprofit incorporation.

The US Government is run through with people who are masters of stealth, and they know that a full on assault on the Christian Church in America would possibly bring on riots. So, they grab a little here, and a little there. They are now trying to force pastors to marry sodomites. And, some of you dim bulbs will do it in order to keep the real estate.

So, you see, you are NOT really ready to die for Christ.

Thus, Caesar will win and take over 95% of all the churches in the USA by his regulations. At this point, persecution will be immense, and the compliant churches will gladly report the Christians who meet secretly or in homes. And, if the Lord has not returned to Rapture his true believers to him, the American true Bride of Christ will start to grow like wild fire, and the dead church will become what it should be-- a Satanic pig sty.

This is not conjecture. It is the way the Lord's Church has grown for almost 2000 years. Persecution seems to be needed for God the Holy Spirit to feel free to empower his people greatly. Why would God the Holy Spirit want to empower your local church which is owned by the US Government?

Some of you scum bag preachers will soon be suing in Rome for the help of Pope Francis to save you worthless hide.

 

LOCAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS

Local government leaders are often less antagonistic to churches and Christians than is our national government. Local officials have to see the church members at the store and at PTA meetings etc. So, cultivate friendships with reasonable local government leaders and the police. Help them in any way you can with a clear conscience.

Also, make friends of business people and influential community movers and shakers.

Luke 16:9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

When the city of Newaygo, Michigan passed an ordinance against people putting Bible verse signs on their front lawns, the good old boys in the city became enraged. One Christian was in the barber shop when the subject of the signs came up, and one good old boy said, "Them damn Baptists should have the freedom of put their Bible signs up." He was totally unsaved, but he knew freedom was supposed to include free speech.

So, how is your reputation down at the cafe at the round table, the one where all the good old boys hold court every day and hash over everything happening in town? Preacher, you need to get down there and see if you can get yourself invited up to that round table. You will have the inside scoop on absolutely anything that happens in town before anyone else gets it. Been there, done that.

One way to throw a wrench into the Devil's plans is to get one of your godly men onto the City Council or the School Board.

 

EVANGELISM

An evangelist is, according to Strong's Concordance, a preacher of the Gospel. In fact, all who minister for Christ, not just the hired hands, are evangelists if they "go ye into all the world" as Jesus Commanded. Here is what Paul told a preacher named Timothy, who was a pastor in a local church.

2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Evangelism was for ALL preachers, not these road runners in RVs who claim they are not called to be preachers. In fact, if an alleged evangelist had not pastored a local church before hitting the road, he was never allowed in a pulpit for which I was responsible. Pastoring, that is, committing to one point and staying for a number of years, is how a man is proven for the work of the ministry.

The curse of the Narrow Way Bible believing churches is hit and run evangelists. They hit town Saturday night, they speak in every service Sunday, and they have a rip snorting altar call on Sunday evening, and then, zip, they are out of town Monday morning heading for a Wednesday one night stand 400 miles away.

This is NOT evangelism. This is a cheap road show. Evangelism is done by a man appointed by a local church, with an objective to preach the Gospel to a target group. This is the New Testament model, and you preachers who love the hit and run evangelist are warped in your understanding. A man who does the work of an evangelist stays in one place until a church is planted.

Oh no, you cry, that is a missionary. There is no word for missionary in the Bible. Missionary is taken from the Latin word, MITTO, to send. Mittonarius is one who is sent. Again, sending is the key here. So, if a missionary is not preaching the Gospel, they are not a missionary OR an evangelist. They are a day laborer for someone else, and if you support them your are dumping your cash into good works, not evangelism.

As near as I can figure, the modern evangelist was a perversion of the old circuit rider preacher like Peter Cartwright who went from church to church and preached for a season, or for several weeks. They stayed in the homes of the people to whom they preached, and there was nothing hit and run about them. They had a circuit they repeated over and over and got to know the people personally, unlike your modern evangelist. Charles Finney, a mean faced cuss who got tired of practicing law, decided to be an evangelist. He invented the mass rallies and the dramatic altar calls. This also was the beginning of scheduled revivals which were advertised and hyped in a town before the evangelist arrived. Often a tent was included, and a circus atmosphere resulted. The Holy Spirit had to change his schedule to fit the evangelist's schedule. This is a freak invention having no resemblance to the Apostles of the Early Church.

So, if you want to go to prison some day because the spies of Caesar decide you are up to something sinister, or why else would you be on the run, go ahead. I have no way to encourage you people who play this game. You will just have to suffer for it until you catch on.

Pastor, teach your members of your assembly to ALL do the work of an evangelist. That is something to die for.

 

PREACHING

When the Chinese Christians were under severe persecution by the Communists long ago, the preachers made it a strict principle that they speak only that which is clearly from the Bible, and rabbit trails were avoided. Modern preaching in America is full of rubbish stories, political edicts, and personal prejudices of the preacher. This is deadly. Do you really want to serve time in prison for chattering about some political issue?

One Chinese preacher was telling the story of Jesus in the boat with the disciples. He told them to cast the net on the right side of the boat. For this he was arrested and found guilty. The judge asked, "Why didn't you say Jesus told them to cast the net on the left side of the ship?"

The wicked will have hate enough for the plain truth. Why give them reason to hammer you for blowing off at the mouth with rubbish that does not edify anyway?

Very soon we may have to stay off of YouTube. We talk about the "local church," but more and more preachers and churches are posting their meetings and sermons online. Andy Warhol said, "Everyone has his fifteen minutes of fame." The Internet gives us all plenty of opportunity for fame, but does anyone really watch and listen? If you feel you must go online, I would suggest short clips due to poor attention spans, and keep it to ONLY Bible teaching with NO blather and bluster to make you feel famous.

The reason for this caution is that NSA and Fusion are storing up every word on YouTube, and they can pull up everything you say. This is true of email, Facebook, Twitter, and your blog as well.

In the gatherings of the church, Bible study will edify better than blasting away at your favorite topic. If you stick to the Bible book studies and exposition the spies will have very little to fault you with. Much of the time they will not even know what you are talking about.

2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

 

CHILDREN

EDUCATION

The most urgent need for children today is protection from Satanic government and its hounds like Child Protection Agencies. Through the public school system children are being mentally and psychologically attacked to try to cleanse them of faith in ANYTHING. God and the Bible are not the only issue. The world system wants kids dumb, mindless, and compliant so that they will serve as slaves of the Global System. All children, except for the kids of the elite, are to become virtual surfs of the commercial interests of world leaders and elite.

So, how do we resist?

First, if you resist the push to drag your kids into the public schools, you may simply lose your kids, and they will be shipped off to become the sex slaves of US Congressmen and Presidents. Indeed, I have one report of American children being flown to Saudi Arabia to become sex slaves of Arab princes.

So, parents in the local church need to get with their pastor and insist that he lead in a program of deprogramming of their children who are captive of the public schools. I have written about this since I went online with this journal for Christians in 1995. To date, NOT ONE PASTOR has reported to me about ANY local church developing any plan to deprogram their children. I am talking about an after school program to deal with disinformation and "oppositions of science, falsely so called."

So, dear parent, do not be surprised if your pastor mocks you and tells you the present glorious church program ("we have something for everyone") is all that is needed. Either you need to find a pastor who understands what I am discussing, or you will have to do this yourself.

Second, you must have a family alter time in your home where you turn the adversary into object lessons of Satan's operations on earth, and where you pray for one another. AND, you need to help your kids target other kids and teachers for the Gospel and salvation. If you do not have a family altar with your kids, shut this page and go chase Drudge.

Third, you must do more than scan your kids' textbooks and ask, "What did you learn in school today?" You must tell your kids that they are at war with Satan. They need to understand that they MUST be polite and unseen as to behavior. If you kids act up and make trouble, they will be taken away from you by and by. That is a fantastic excuse to steal kids for "rehabilitation."

STUDY your kids books with them, and not just Mommy. Daddy needs to dig in and see what Satanic philosophies may be embedded in ANY subject. The most obvious places for Satanic One World concepts is in History and Social Studies. But, even math can have story problems that are devilish in moral content.

Illustration of a story problem:
Daddy has divorced and remarried three times. He had two boys by his first wife, one girl by his second wife, and you are his only child with his present gay husband. How many children does your Daddy have?

Pay attention Daddy: Every story problem, every history lesson, and every personal little chat with "our dear teacher" is a lesson waiting for another teacher-- YOU. Do not tell me your kids will get it in Sunday School and the youth program. Those venues are often nothing but amusement to keep kids out of the way. You, sir, are the man. You need to grab the King James Bible in one hand, hug your kid with the other, and make everything they experience a parable of what the Bible teaches about sin, righteousness, and judgment.

Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

Do not tell me that you are not up to this. I have known a number of men who had no formal education and had to depend on their instincts in the Holy Spirit who taught their public school children how to survive in this life with victory in Jesus Christ. If you have problems that seem too much to bear, please SEND MAIL, and I will try to help.

To you pastors:

Some of your snobs are so obsessed with your local church program that you virtually hate the parents and kids who are in the public schools. You, in effect, send the message that if they are not homeschooling, or in your church school program, that they deserve to go to hell. I am telling the parents of those kids to find another church, sir. You should be busy gathering all the data you can to support all parents in the effort to help their kids survive.

And, pastor, understand this..... soon your church school will be closed down. Either it will be condemned for some regulation or health violation, or national legislation will simply end all private education. They are working on it now with the Common Core program. So, you might as well do some history study of your own, and see what the Russian Baptists did under Soviet rule. You need another plan, other than you present plan to hype programs that make your resume look good.

 

STREET WISE

By this I do not mean introducing your kids to vile things, as if this will prepare them for daily life in your neighborhood. What I am talking about is the wisdom that comes from above that teaches us to live at peace and avoid evil.

First, your kids are not called to mouth off in the market place. It is needful that all Christian kids learn to be polite, pert, and slightly suspicious of everyone they meet. And, this is true in the local church also. Sodomites love to cruise local churches looking for kids to molest, and most pastors are wimps when this happens.

Also, your kids need to understand that the city is a freak zone in modern life. The city is where crime and perversion are the most rampant. Teach your kids to seek places and diversions that remind them of the Glory and creation of God. I would advise ALL Christian parents to move to the country. Get out to the rural ring around your city if the city is the only place you can find a job. Be willing to commute in order to protect your kids from the concentrated evil in the city. If you will not make serious changes for your kids' sakes you have no business whining about the filthy things they pick up and deal with.

Do not hide from everyone. Find Bible believing friends who have common life patterns with you, and make sure your kids have friends if possible. If you isolate you kids from all people, tell me, Mr. Genius, where on earth will your kid find a spouse? They simply may run away from home to find friends.

 

THE CHURCH BETWEEN SUNDAYS

Well, the Church is the people, not the organization. Nor is it defined by a membership list, nor a creed, nor a hierarchy in Rochester, New York. The Church is made up of all who are in the Lamb's Book of Life, and you, pastor, are simply one of thousands of ordinary men called to care for one small gathering of Christ's sheep. You are not an Under-Shepherd. There is no such animal in the Bible. You are a pastor, bishop, elder, and that is it.

One way the spies of Caesar, or the wicked who serve Satan, will know who to target is to see who wears the three piece suit, stands in the pulpit, never has dirt under his fingernails, and who stands in the foyer after the service and schmoozes the big givers. The next step is to give that man a large personal gift and tell him to take his wife out for a nice dinner. "You are working too hard pastor, you need a rest."

Inhale deep, you jack ass.

"What an observant men. I DO work too hard, and I DO deserve some pampering." SLAP-- the Devil just grabbed you by your privates, preacher, and you are on your way to destruction. The agent provocateur will soon be on the church board, that is, once you learn he is the one responsible for the offerings jumping up greatly.

Satan now owns your church, and Caesar does not have to do anything more. You are a panty waste and a loser. You really ought to toss in the towel and go sell insurance.

So, how do we avoid this?

Answer: Sit down preacher, grab hold of something, this will be a terrible shock to you.

Are you ready???????????

Spend all your spare time with your church family, and run off the goats and their gifts. That is your schedule between Sundays. Visit the sick and the folks in the nursing home, take the guy who just lost his job out for coffee, and what time you have left, "study to show thyself approved of God....." If the Feds want to follow you around on THAT schedule, they will go mad. And, they will be able to find nothing in your conduct to use against you in court.

There are men who live this way, so do NOT write email and tell me it is hard to do. The men who live the life of Christ in their ministry love every minute of it. I think of my old friend in Michigan, Bob Shots. He put hundreds of thousands of miles on his old Ford station wagon diving all over the Midwest of the USA encouraging whipped pastors, and the rest of his time he was feeding sheep. If you wanted to convict Bob Shots of something in a Federal court, it would have to be making an illegal left turn in Toledo, or some other such minor offense. Bob is in heaven now, so I am not carelessly exalting him.

 

THE JOY OF THE LORD

Jesus is praying:

John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

God has no contingency plan. He has planned just one thing for you because he has to answer his Son's prayer above. He is asked, in verse 13, that his Son's joy would be fulfilled in you. There seems to be a sense in which Christ's joy was not quite complete when he ascended to heaven. This is implied in his asking his Father to "fulfill," or finish, his joy in YOU. What a privilege, to be the one whom God uses to make Jesus' joy complete.

So, is Jesus' joy fulfilled in YOU?

And, in verse 14, you have the blessing of being hated like Jesus was. Are you? If not, then the verse tells you why. You are supposed to be "not of the world." So, if people do not hate you because of Jesus, you are a real loser, a man approved of the world. Are you even born again?

Verse 15 is a bit frightening. We are not going to be removed from the world, neither from our immediate assignment, nor from the earth in the Rapture. The Rapture is an exception to the rule, and for the time being, you are in the world to show Jesus Christ to the world. Stop looking at the Rapture as an escape hatch. You are not of this world because Jesus Christ your Lord is not of this world. You are just as much in heaven now as you ever will be, well, other than your flesh.

What kind of position do you have?

Answer: You are an other world person temporarily left in the world to show Jesus Christ to the lost. And, the way you will look the most like Jesus is by your joy in every situation that comes to you.

Now, no matter what evil things come down in the days ahead, keep this little study in mind. You and I ought to be always full of joy when we remember who we are and what our Lord has for us today, tomorrow, and for eternity.

Psalms 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

Read that again please.

 

AND THE ENEMY?

They are all around us, we are surrounded on all sides. Do not let one of them get away. "He is not willing that any perish, but that all come to repentance," even Satan's agents from Homeland Security and the Church of Satan.

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

AN OBVIOUS RACIST ATTACK AT A CHURCH PICNIC
Black urban churches may become rallying points for racism. Dr. Jeremiah Wright in Chicago was very racist in his preaching. I have a set of eight tapes by him long ago, and he IS a racist. This could become an issue if you are in a mixed race environment. It will become very serious if you are already racist and resent Blacks.

MUSLIM ATTACK ON CHURCH IN FRANCE

DEPOPULATION OF THE USA
Vaccinations, drugs, diet, fluoride and chlorine in water, and greed to money, with other issues, are causing infertility and disinterest in having babies by the White Race. This means the White Race as we know it will disappear if Christ does not return soon. And, maybe that is exactly what should happen. The White Race has had the most exposure to the Gospel, and Whites around the world are leading the world into debauchery, sodomy, and open sexual lust. So, maybe God wants this. But, if you really want to reach lost souls and build Bible based churches, you will be looking for these illegals from South America and Mexico as candidates for salvation. If you do not reach out to ethnic people, you may one day find yourself under Sharia Law enforced by raging Muslims Mullahs. Your choice, pastor.

THE WORLD REPORTS BEST ON THE WORST IN CHRISTENDOM
The media loves to mock at Christians. This will only increase.

ONLY A DAMNED FOOL WOULD ALLOW A WHITE SUPREMACIST INTO THEIR CHURCH
Toleration of racism in the Lord's Church will only give the adversary an alibi to attack your church.

THE END OF THIS VIDEO, IN THE LAST COMMENT OF THE MAYOR, SHOWS WHERE THE GOVERNMENT OF THE USA IS LEADING AMERICA
Keep yourself away from Caesar at all costs. Pay your taxes, keep the law, and have your faith in your fellowship and personal daily life. If that gets you into trouble, so be it. But, stop trying to use your alleged "rights" to prevail. You have no rights in Christ except to glorify God every day.

WHAT IF CAESAR RECORDS YOU SERMONS?
The day will come when your sermons are recorded and stored to use against you. Are you blabbering about politics and issues you would not want to die for? Hmmmm There is nothing novel about this. The Pharisees did this to Jesus, and it was used against him at his trial.

INNER CITY BLACK CHURCHES URGED BY THE GOVERNMENT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES
This is clearly limited to Black churches based on the geography of the thing. So, if you have to encourage men to get a permit to carry and be ready to defend the local church against generic lawlessness, understand that you may be targeted as terrorists. That does not mean you should not defend the saints. It means, be careful.

My wife's grandparents were missionaries to China, my mother-in-law was born there, and my wife's uncle was imprisoned by the Communist Chinese when he was a missionary to China. Pastor, you need to start talking about what our priorities are.
Our day of suffering may be closer than we imagine.

Feel free to send mail, but do not tell me names and details of anything you are dealing with. Such mail will be deleted at once.

I rarely do this on this journal, but this time it seems appropriate. Are you a pastor, and have you just had a good look at things in your ministry which are upside down? Well, this is YOUR altar call time. Write me, and tell me what you think, and let me know what you intend to do about your ministry in the future. There is a phone number at that link also.
