“Be it known to all the people of Israel that by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, even by Him does this man stand here before you whole. This is the Stone which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the Head of the corner. Neither is there Salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”. (Acts 4:10-12)
I will try to put on paper what God was showing me in my spirit about 3:30 this morning while still half asleep. I had to get up and write it on paper. It was about the deep, deep rooted of deception of religious systems of the day we live in, and the roots go very deep! Please know for sure I am not speaking against people. I love all people, and so does God.
Down through the years in church history, man has always looked up to a man or a woman that God raised up to start a truth or a movement. As time goes by the name of the man or woman comes to the forefront. When this happens, the Name of Jesus becomes less and less until the Name of Jesus is completely rejected, and the root of deception goes deeper and deeper, and the Life of Christ is no longer with us, because man is exalted instead of Jesus Christ. In the meantime children are born in this deception and taught in this deception and they grow up and raise their children in this dead, lifeless deception. The longer it goes the worse it gets. Flesh begets flesh, self-righteousness begets self-righteousness.
Jakob Amman, born Feb 12, 1644, started a move called Amish. He started out good, but began to lord over the people and exalt himself. When he did that, the Holy Spirit was no longer welcome and had to leave. 300 years later I was born into this deception called Amish. Today there are many different kind of Amish that do not fellowship with each other, because of one man turning away from the Name of Jesus and going into his own name and his own righteousness. Many innocent people have been born into this deep, deep rooted deception as I was in 1944. This is what the Lord showed me this morning. The roots go deep. Many Amish leave the Amish for different reasons. Some leave because they begin reading the English bible and see the error in the Amish belief system, but never come into proper training led by the Holy Spirit and are never really delivered from the deep rooted system which is self-righteousness. In my own life, after I had cried out for Truth and had encounter with Jesus Christ, God begin to deal with the deep roots that was not of Him by circumstances I had no control over. He took His ax to those deep roots and started cutting away. Believe me; it is not pleasant, but rewarding. It is from death to Life, which all who name the Name of Jesus must go through in some form or another.
It has been 500 years since the Reformation started by Martin Luther. Since then, many other reformers started their own doctrines, and many divisions have fractured the Body of Christ. Men have exalted themselves and their doctrine and rejected the Name of Jesus Christ and the Power of that Name. Folks, there is another Reformation coming, and it is at our door steps. The Light of the Gospel that has gone out is about to be Relit!! Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Name of JESUS!!!comments powered by Disqus« Back to Articles
