The false church and false christians - its head, its body and its venom
 
INTRODUCTION

The bible reveals a part of God's plan that is very instructive. It teaches us that satan has done, is doing and will do, whether he likes it or not, all of God's bidding and he knows that his time is short (Revelation 12:9-12). The bringing forth of the wicked false church, with it's doctrines of devils, taught by false teachers and believed by false christians in false christianity, is already underway.

God has purposed for satan to bring forth this wicked and evil institution so as to contrast it with His True Church In Christ, in order that He may demonstrate His revenge and power over evil, and destroy it, for all to see, and make known the riches of His grace and mercy to His True Church. In this plan, God alone is glorified.

The bible instructs us that God is a warrior (Exodus 15:3-6) and His enemies shall lick the dust (Psalm 72:9). He creates peace and He creates evil (Isaiah 45:7). Yea, He even created the wicked for the day of evil (Proverbs16:4) evil prepared for destruction, and He remains the HOLY ONE. (Exodus 15:9-11)

Doctrinally, this part of God's plan is instructive because it exposes the serpent's agenda and it's venom in the garden of Eden, so that God's elect in Christ will not be deceived. As in all doctrines of the bible, it is a matter of life and death.

From Eden, this venom, by the workings of satan and his demons, according to Divine will and plan, has spread throughout the whole world by way of Humanism in it's various forms and all false religions. The most venomous of all is false Christianity, where a false christ is preached and worshipped, who is no God at all.

THE FALSE CHURCH - ITS HEAD, ITS BODY AND ITS VENOM

Genesis 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof THOU SHALT SURELY DIE."

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field that the Lord had made. And he said unto the woman, "Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, "YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE. 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and it was pleasant to the eyes , and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

The two passages cited above are fundamental in revealing God's plan in bringing about the True Church and the false church. However, the purpose of this article is to reveal the head, body and venom of the false church. But first, a brief exposition of God's doctrine for the True Church.

In Genesis 2:16-17, the Holy Spirit tells us that The Lord God brings forth truth (true doctrine) and He lays the foundation of the True Church – The Truth, that the wages of sin is death. And in death, man will have no ability to save himself, verse 17 "for in the day that thou eatest thereof "THOU SHALT SURELY DIE."

This has come to pass (Genesis 3:6) and man is totally dead in sin (Ephesians 2:1) and therefore has no will, let alone a 'freewill' to come to Christ. Salvation, from it's inception in God's secret election of Grace (Romans 11:5-7) to it's consummation, when Christ comes again for His church at the glorification (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57) is therefore, the work of God alone. Salvation is of the Lord. He is the Author and Finisher of the faith of every elect sinner saved by His Sovereign Grace. This is the Truth. The foundation and doctrine of the True Church.

However, let us look at Genesis 3:1-6. The Holy Spirit reveals that the head of the false church is the devil (the serpent). The devil contradicts God and brings forth lies (false doctrines - the venom) - he lays the foundation of the false church – untruth, that man is not dead in sin, verse 4, "YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE." Then in verse 5, a bigger lie follows, that man is not only, NOT DEAD IN SIN, but has become as gods and 'wise' in verse 6, and therefore can will freely to choose between good and evil and come to Christ and receive eternal life and this out of his own 'freewill'. So with this venom, the serpent poisons the world and most deceivingly, brings forth false Christianity.

Do you know what is the favourite belief of false Christians (the serpent's body) in false churches? Their favourite belief is that sinful man has a 'freewill', and is therefore not dead in sin (clearly contradicting Paul in Ephesians 2:1) and can discern between spiritual matters from earthly matters, (clearly contradicting Jesus in John 3:12) and choose to believe or not to believe in Christ. Therefore, they believe that, it is not Christ's sovereign will that decides who finally receives salvation and enters God's kingdom, but sinful man's 'freewill'.

My goodness! The power of sinful man's 'freewill'! It can thwart and veto God's Holy and Almighty will! Incredible, that The Holy will of God has less power than the sinful 'freewill' of sinful man. This would mean that the bible is lying, when it declares that God's will is Almighty. But wait a minute, even a false Christian will say that God is almighty. But they also belief that sinful man's freewill can thwart God's almighty will to save them. Do you now see how very confused they are? So, if they want to be consistent, the false Christians should amend their bibles and declare sinful man's 'freewill' to be mightier than God's will to want to save them.

Imagine, Evil is more powerful than Good! God bows down to the devil and sinful man! Are they serious? Yes they are. No prizes for guessing where they got this false doctrine (serpent's venom). Jesus calls them, children of the devil (Read John 8:42-47). They are of their father the devil, the father of lies, thus, the body of the serpent believes it's own head when he said in Genesis 3:4, "YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE." They cannot hear God's Word and believe, when God clearly declared the truth in Genesis 2:17, "THOU SHALT SURELY DIE." Jesus said the reason that they cannot is because they do not belong to God.

Another favourite of false Christians is they love to pray to God to save their unsaved family members and friends because they claim to 'believe' that God is Almighty. Another popular belief amongst them is they also believe that God wants and is trying His utmost best to save everyone, which must include their family members and friends. But, remember also their favourite belief, that their family members and friends all have a "freewill' to choose Christ or not.

Now let us, say, during one of their group's prayer time, they pray to God to save some family member, whom they believe, out of his own 'freewill', for years, refuses to believe the gospel and be saved. And if God should suddenly become audible as in the days of Moses, and speak to this group, and if the false christians beliefs above are true, it would be fair for God to say most apologetically to the prayer group, something to this effect:

"Thanks for praying to me, I appreciate it, but I am not as Almighty as you think I am. I am, however trying my utmost best, since the fall of man to save everyone, including this family member that you have mentioned in your prayers. But I am having great difficulty with his 'freewill', perhaps you should pray to him, for the power of his 'freewill' seems to be thwarting my divine will to save him. Also, not to be discouraging, please be prepared for some disappointment, if I finally cannot save him. My record for saving sinners isn't very good, for as you know for a fact, multitudes through history and even presently, do not believe and become saved. I think I'll have to go back to the drawing board, for now at least. I am feeling very depressed. Please pray for me and please do not stop praying for your family member to be saved.You'll never know, he may change his mind and decide to believe out of his own 'freewill'."

How absurd is this? It is absurd because it is not true what false Christians believe about God and His ways. About His purposes and His plans. Have you ever wondered what is the shared and common belief that not only binds, but blinds all the useless philosophies and false religions of man and the devil? From humanism in it's various forms to false christianity. They all believe that man has a 'freewill'. They have no idea of what the fall in Eden has done to mankind. They do not believe God, but the serpent's venom in Genesis 3:4, "YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE."

If you have been practising false Christianity, then you have to beg for God's mercy to remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26). Even this ability to beg for God's mercy is a gift from God. Sinful man cannot repent out of his own 'freewill'. Remember, "It is not of him that willeth, nor or him that runneth, but of God who sheweth mercy." (Romans 9:11-16). You must pray and ask God to lead you to a true church of Christ where truth is being preached. Otherwise, the blind leading the blind, you know the rest.

Indeed, the truth is, there is, such a thing as a freewill. This is truth, only God alone has a freewill, not man, let alone sinful man. Man before the fall, was not free to eat from every tree. Genesis 2:16-17 was not a request, it was a COMMAND! Whether man could obey the command or not, depended not on man's will, but God's mercy.

The reason and purpose for this truth is to humble man the creature and exalt God his creator. Can God not freely do as He pleases with the armies in heaven and the inhabitants of the earth? Of course He can, and He does! (Read Daniel 4:35). God's will is not only free, it is Almighty. But can man also not freely do as He pleases? Of course he can't.

But man thinks he can.God had planned for man to fall and man fell. Satan and man worked out and accomplished their creators plan for creating them and making them to meet in Eden. A date actually made in Heaven. It must, it shall and it has come to pass. Satan's and man's will, will act in accordance to God's Divine freewill. The truth therefore declares that there cannot be three, but only one freewill, and that of God.

Whether the world knows and believes this or not, is not going to change the truth of God's plan, that after the fall, God's plan was that man's will becomes enslaved to satan his new master and man's own sinful nature. Not once enslaved , but twice. This has come to pass and man's mind becomes the playground of satan to sow every evil seed that God has purposed for satan to sow.Yes, my dear reader, even satan himself does the bidding of Divine will.

God had planned this fearful, terrible and awful situation for satan and man to be in, so that He can demonstrate His revenge and Almighty Power in the destruction of evil, and His Sovereign Grace in Christ in the salvation of elect sinners. In both these Almighty works of God's freewill. Revenge and salvation, God alone is glorified, and all of creation shall bow down, to the Name above every name, Christ Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Multitudes have been, are and shall be victims of the devil's and the world's favourite pastime - exalting the 'freewill' of man. From Eden till today, multitudes have been poisoned by the serpent's venom. If one should die in this state of stupor and deception, one will end up where the devil will end up.

The false Christian will end up where his false Christ will lead him. The Buddhist will end up where Buddha is. The Catholic will end up where the Pope is going. The Muslim will end up where Mohammed is. The Jew will end up where his rabbi will lead him. The Hindu will end up where his beloved Ganesh is. The Scientologist will end up somewhere in outer space, wherever that is. For Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, no one cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)

If you have been created by God to be a vessel of mercy, before you die, at God's appointed time of Sovereign Grace for your soul, you will be born again of God The Holy Spirit and you will Repent and not perish. But if you have been created to be a vessel of dishonour, prepared for destruction, you will laugh at God's truth all the way, until you reach hell, where your laughter turns into weeping and gnashing of teeth.

This is why Jesus said, "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear God who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10:28)

Do you still believe that sinful man has a 'freewill'? Do you claim to be a christian? If your answer is yes to both the questions. Then you are in trouble. You should seriously think about what you have just read above and also consider these verses seriously.

2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve, through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he (false teacher) that cometh that preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye have received another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him (false teacher).

2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

The false church is alive and thriving, God wants it so, multitudes who profess faith in christ, are in reality disciples of another jesus, believers of another gospel, followers of false apostles and servants of satan himself masquerading as an angel of light. Now you know for yourselves, whether you are a false christian or one of God's vessels of mercy. I hope that before you die, you dear reader, if you have not done so, will repent and not perish, and this not of your own 'freewill' but of God who shows mercy.

 

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear:

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Exodus 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. 4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. 5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. 6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Proverbs 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Exodus 15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. 10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins

Romans 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. 7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.

John 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Romans 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
