Who are you truly following?
By Pieter Kirstein
A shocking reality today that should be seriously considered by every person who claim to be a Christian.
SHOULD A CHRISTIAN NOT BE A TRUE FOLLOWER OF CHRIST?
2Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Know you not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are counterfeits?
If you are truly a follower and a disciplined IN LOVE WITH GOD disciple of Jesus Christ then you pursue the Lord DAILY through His word, through passionate surrender and obedience which results in true worship and devotion toward the GOD of your salvation who’s desire it is to bring His children into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ as they choose to set their hearts on Him.
It’s never a performance issue or thing or even a religious burden but in childlike trust and humility you simply ask the Father daily to invade your space and your heart with the power of His love by the working of His Spirit to SUPERNATURALLY draw you to Himself. Ask Him, cry out to Him to seriously arrest you in His plan, purpose and destiny. Ask God to break through the walls of the flesh that’s been erected within your heart. Ask Him to deliver you from the destruction of idolatry which is anything that you desire more than God. Ask Him to empty you of yourself so that He might fill you with himself.
We cannot live and do as we please and call ourselves followers of Christ because if we do that we only deceive ourselves.
If you are a follower of yourself then Satan the god of this fallen world will bind you to yourself and put you in pursuit of everything contrary to GOD.
Please consider the following serious fact.
Those of the Lord’s disciples that walked in true apostolic authority were released from a place of radical intimacy that had a divine impartation and revelation of the Father’s heart proclaimed in the Person of Christ.
We see this in the testimony which John gave, he writes; That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked on, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show to you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested to us; That which we have seen and heard declare we to you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we to you, that your joy may be full. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare to you, 1John 1-5
Amazingly after the Lord Jesus finished His God-given assignment and after He touched, healed, restored and blessed so many lives in His earthly ministry, so much so that John writes in John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written, in Matthew 28 we see only 11 disciples present when Jesus gave the great commission.
Where were all those people that He touched?
Isn’t the reason for this that in every generation we find the givers and the takers?
Those who are in this thing called Christianity only because they want to see what they can get from God and the very few that are willing to follow the Master wherever He leads. The few that are willing to lay down their lives just like Jesus for the benefit of others.
1Th 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, who tests our hearts.
Where do you stand today with God?
When I asked the Lord why He spat in the dirt to make clay to put on the blind man’s eyes in John 9, Christ said that it’s a prophetic picture that we are all blinded by the dirt of this world and we are sent by God to wash the dirt out of our eyes through the water of the Word.
We cannot stay wise in our own eyes wanting God to serve us and our lustful desires used by satan to destroy us.
Multitudes are blinded by the “DIRT” of this world, which are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of this life that blocks out pure humble devotion to God.
I see many people who want and expect God to serve their idols, that think He owes us something.
WE ARE CALLED TO LAY OUR LIVES DOWN TO SERVE HIM AND HIS PURPOSES.
Did Jesus teach us to pray “Father let my kingdom come and my will be done, or are we suppose to allow His kingdom to be set up and divinely be established in our hearts and minds?”
Can we claim that Christ is our King while we live in rebellion against Him?
Most people are only ok with God if everything goes their way but I prophesy to this generation that many people have errected a false god unto their liking and they know not the holy One of Israel and and are going to be greatly offended by the shakings of God to draw this generation to wholehearted repentance.
The following prophecy was sent to me years ago but unfortunately I cannot recall who the scribe was, but it’s very applicable to our times.
___ Hold fast that which is true and eternal, for all else is sinking sand. People have itchy ears to listen to, and be fascinated by new, exciting, seductive things. They give up the eternal things of infinite value in exchange for trinkets and baubles that sparkle and flash with iridescent, fluorescent and psychodelic colours. Lucifer tempted Eve with things that sounded and looked good, exciting and reasonable. It’s the same today.
But counterfeit shining baubles and trinkets only have value in people’s minds because they look as if they have value and beauty. THE COUNTERFEIT LOOKS LIKE THE REAL THING BUT IS WORTHLESS. The Con Men and Women are geniuses at appearing sincere and compassionate. Control over others is an aphrodisiac to such people. They have no functioning conscience and can lie and deceive without a normal human prick of the conscience. See the tiny book of Jude who describes such people.
Mankind has fallen for a false gospel and counterfeit salvation. This false salvation that people fall for is seemingly good, easy, edifying and life enhancing. Many people do not want to obey, be righteous and holy as I AM HOLY. They want it to be easy on the flesh, exciting, interesting, fascinating, stimulating and entertaining. It is a salvation that is reasonable and appealing to man’s mind and emotions, and gives a sense of power, self-aggrandisement and achievement. So many want to be their own gods and not have to submit their will to Me.
They like Me to be around and be useful to them – like Santa Claus or a Genie – who they can control – a beneficent, benevolent, naive old man in the sky who they can manipulate – who gives free salvation and a heavenly passport – at no cost to themselves.They want Me to pay for them to lead the good life and not to pay any cost themselves. People want Me to be their benevolent banker and provider – who asks no inconvenient questions.
Being their own god, having Me on tap to supply all their needs, is a good deal. But it is a deception. BUT ALL THIS IS STILL THE SAME DECEPTION WITH WHICH LUCIFER BEGUILED EVE. It excludes submission to Me and obedience to My commands (which are meant for your blessing and safety). I died for you so that you could be redeemed from Satan’s grip of punishment and death.
I died to save you from yourself -your own fallen self-focus. It is your mind, will and emotions agreeing with the enemy’s deceptions that gets you into his territory and grip. He loves to convince you that it is your right to have your needs and desires met – and will show you ways to meet them independent of Me. But he can only recycle what I have made – he cannot create.
The New Agers have fallen for the same lie that Eve fell for and that Nimrod and Semiramis propagated and sold to mankind after the Flood.
Both Satan and Nimrod lied and deliberately deceived to get control and positions of power over mankind. They were usurping My place to be Shepherd-King of mankind. I gave man ground rules to keep them free from Satan and his fallen angels because I knew their evil intent. But they chose to disregard what I said and chose to believe the lies because they sounded good, looked good, and felt good. BUT like bait on a fishing line, it carried hidden deadly hooks that took away man’s freedom.
What Satan wants is to capture the will and submission of mankind. He wants to act as a god, but instead of being a Shepherd-King caring for the sheep, he want to rule over you and enslave you. To get you to surrender your will and the wonderful inheritance as a child of heaven, Lucifer has to deceive you as to the purpose of his offer.
He offers to set you free from My precepts so that you can be your own god. BUT HIS PURPOSE IS TO ENSLAVE YOU. The seduction is powerful and meant to deceive by looking very attractive, sounding like a good offer, which feels good, up-lifting and liberating. It seems reasonable, feeds your self-esteem and makes you think Lucifer cares for you. In fact he is jealous of you and wants your spirit and soul to feed off. He wants to steal and corrupt your DNA because he hates it as it reminds him of Me and what he has lost.
He wants to harm and hurt mankind as a way of hurting Me and he wants to gloat over his captured prey. He delights in conquest and torment. This age-old lie and strategy is being revved up right now to deceive mankind into accepting the New Age Messiah. “New Age” is a PR (public relations) term designed to repackage and market the age-old lie going back to Eden. Adam and Eve had all that was necessary for life and happiness to be rulers of their domain as sons and daughters of the Most High King of the Universe. They had all that was beautiful and needful, plus abundance to fulfil every desire as a free gift.
But Lucifer wanted to rule over them and steal their inheritance and domain – to take their title deeds and authority. Lucifer had to get them to hand these over to his control -which they did by ignoring My instruction, (which was for their protection) and believing Lucifer’s lie. Lucifer looked like a beautiful angel of light, seemingly wise, benevolent and having their best interests at heart.
BUT IT WAS ALL A LIE FOR THE PURPOSE OF DECEIVING IN ORDER TO ROB THEM. Lucifer was the original PR expert and advertising agent. Edward Bernays learned these tricks and strategies well and taught governments (including the Nazis), bankers and corporations how to deliberately deceive and con in order to rob the masses of their inheritance and birthrights.
They now use public relations, advertising, spin doctoring, Hollywood, Bollywood, mass media and election campaigns to deceive on a grand scale. They make fabrications look real, lies sound true, robbing you while claiming to offer you something extremely desirable. ” It looks good and “cool”. ” It feels good and exciting. ” It sounds like a fantastic offer. ” It is made to sound humanitarian and caring. BUT THE ENEMY WANTS TO STEAL: ”
The sovereignty of your country. ” Your family. ” Your job. ” Your inheritance. ” Your freedom. All this while deceitfully offering you equality, fraternity, and liberty – a Socialist/Marxist egalitarian, utopian world with a One World Government, Army and Bank, with the promise of no more war. LUCIFER’S OFFER – FUN, FREEDOM AND GODHOOD: ”
Freedom form YHVH’s commandments. ” To remove the laws that spoil your fun and restrict your freedom to do whatever you want to do. ” You will be as gods. SOUNDS GOOD. BUT it will bring chaos, violence, war, division, brother against brother, tyranny, totalitarian world government, with ever-present surveillance, which leads to total slavery. (Depicted in the movies The Matrix and 1984) THIS IS THE NEW AGE THAT LUCIFER IS OFFERING! IT IS THE CLEVER MARKETING OF THE AGE- OLD LIE OF SATAN AND NIMROD. Believing the seemingly beautiful and wise serpent cost Adam and Eve their Garden.
They fell and lost their garment of light, and access to the Throne and Tree of Life. They had to start life outside the Garden in a hostile environment. Following Nimrod caused mankind to have their communications disrupted and they were scattered over the face of the earth. They were stopped from building their city and tower, and lost much of their advanced technology and civilization, having to start all over again. What will the latest attempt at building Babel cost mankind?
The new technology being used to reach the heavens and rule the earth as Nimrod tried to do involves: ” NASA and star wars and star gates. ” CERN and spirals, black holes and dimension breaking physics; supercomputers. ” WMD – atomic, frequency, EMP, RF, sound and star wars weapons. This technology is being used to break through the dimensional barriers and boundaries to enable the ancient fallen ones to return to earth – to open the pit -to release demons, and the hell on earth, that the book of Revelation describes. To stop the first Babel, “I came down and confounded their language and scattered them.” (Gen 11).
To stop Hitler’s attempt to rule the world in a “Thousand year Reich,” cost the world the death of millions in war and holocaust. What will it take to overturn Satan’s latest attempt to enthrone the Lawless One as World Ruler, anoint the New Age counterfeit messiah, and create utter desolation with star-wars weapons?
IT WILL TAKE ARMAGEDDAN.
Enoch saw My return with the heavenly army of saints and angels. Revelation 19 describes My coming on My white horse with fire in My eyes and a sword in My mouth. I will unleash My heavenly “Star War” weapons to destroy the armies of the Beast who makes war against the Lamb, the Saints and Jerusalem. I WIN! You get to choose
