    I thought we were just making the point that people are not always as they appear at first glance

    Yes, that is very true, Jaye. Just because a person professes to be a Christian, it doesn't mean that he or she is.

    Some people in fact take their own iniquity lightly, as if it is of little consequence. Some people seem to believe they will even "get away" with their iniquity if they are clever enough. But it is of a truth that what one sows, one will reap. And workers of iniquity should know that their punishment will come.

    I am more of a "wrath of God" Christian than one that would simply stand by and let workers of&nbsp;iniquity perpetrate their evil. And I urge all my true fellow Christians to depart from their iniquities with haste, to depart from evil for your own sakes.<B>Matthew 7:23</B> - And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work <B>iniquity</B>.

    <B>Matthew 13:41</B> - The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do <B>iniquity</B>;

    <B>Matthew 23:28</B> - Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and <B>iniquity</B>.<B>2 </B>

    <B>Timothy 2:19
    </B> - Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from <B>iniquity</B>.

    [<B>2 Peter 2:16</B> - But was rebuked for his <B>iniquity</B>: the dumb [wash my mouth][wash my mouth][wash my mouth] speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

    The false brothern are those who seek to profit off of the gospel and who are given over the the flesh and sensual living. But as always, the main thing we need to watch out for is the tongue.

    In the Book of Rev. are seven church and all seven have something they need to repent of to be a overcomer. In every case they are told if they do not repent, God will remove their lampstand. God will NOT use them as a witness and a testimony for Him. They may or may not be saved, but it takes more than being saved to be used by God.

    So actually, God makes it easy for us. You can not be in and out for God if you want to serve Him and be a spokes person for Him. You have to be on fire, all the way in or all the way out. NO lukewarm people need apply to the ministry. God will not use the lukewarm, their message will be their own, and not from God.

    The early church was told to WAIT tell God had given them power from on High. There are those who have a forum of Godliness, but they deny the power. They do not have the power and the strength of God. Their ministry does not have miracles, healing and salvations.

    Mark 16:17-18&nbsp;And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; [18] they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

    Whatever took place on the day of pentacost was the opposite of what took place at the tower of babel. People were brought together in God's love.

    Please let's all remember when one points a finger at someone else, there are three fingers pointing back. In other words, While the topic of this thread is a worthy one, it could very easily turn into an ugly, example of passing jugements and name-calling.

    Jesus loves the wolves too. they are creations of His, made in His image, and God don't make no junk. Perhaps instead of seeking to expose wolves we should be praying for them, befriending and forgiving them to show them the ways of the Lord. Jesus did not reprove anyone on the cross. He forgave them. I hope to one day acheive that kind of spirit-filled attitude.

    This is Vapor's enemy! As you can see, a christian loves their enemies to the point even though hang out with them to share the love of God, because God's love is power, so I have power to hang out with my enemy.
    Anyway, that is not my point.
    The point is that Christians are dress in wolf's clothing. I am sick of church games, and clubs. Anybody knows the bible like the wolf, but who can actually prophecy like the old prophets or cast out demons or heal the sick in the hospitals or etc well not many but they all christians without any evidence of the holy spirit. But they are bible college graduates. wow! I guess that qualifies you to preach without the anointing. Or because you have perfect church attendance makes you a christian or because you fellowship weekly with only believer makes you a christian? Guess not, you wolf! The real christian is going to have every evidence as Jesus did with authority and power. The real christian is humble and has been persecuted. The real christian can make a thousand demons fly away. Now you can say you are a christian. All those other christians are only going to keep on talking not walking and keeping the world the same way in violence and cry what is happening in the world and will be running from evil like chickens because they call themselves christians but when the war comes they cannot defeat even a flea but they know they know the bible, they club the church
    so forth, but just talk and works but no no power or authority of the holy spirit. I am sick of this kind of church. Please I want to attend a church where there is more power that I see everyday a war being won that demons are fleeing like chicken not the christians. More churches more violence. More power of the holy spirit less demons. Thank you, I hope you got my point. Sick of false prophets!
