    Peace to those who may read.

    The churches of carnally-thinking men (earthly-minded men) preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men (the handwriting of ordinances/dogmas….that is, their church doctrines inscribed by their "scribes" for many to keep).

    They do these things for money…which has the graven image of corruptible man upon it. They command that their congregations give the image (money) to the handwriting of ordinances in order to honor/worship their “church” which is structured after the handwriting of ordinances...after the rudiments of the world (rising up out of the sea).

    They preach these things for the image…. money….which has the image of corruptible man upon it.

    Mark 12: KJV
    (15) Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
    (16) And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.
    (17) And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.


    They have (command) their listeners of their sermons give the image (money) to the “church” which is structured on the handwriting of ordinances (the “superscription”).

    Many see themselves as “wise” for letting a man exalt himself over them as they are led into the bondage of their “Caesar” (their “king” that they have desired) who leads them into the keeping of the teachings and commandments of men…who leads them into bondage and to their destruction. The “king” taxes the subjects in his kingdom and puts them to work in furthering his kingdom. They have their church government... ordinances... to follow just like the world that does not profess to know God.

    2 Corinthians 11:19-20 KJV
    (19) For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
    (20) For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.


    Many are being deceived by false teachers into exchanging the truth of God for THE lie and worship and serve the teachings and commandments of men over the commandment of God: to have love for one another. They see themselves as “wise” for doing so. Professing themselves as “wise”, they have become fools.

    Let us not “go to church” where many (who see themselves as wise for doing so) are exchanging the glory of the incorruptible God for the image made like to corruptible man (that is MONEY which has the image of man upon it).

    The nations of the outside world see the preaching and giving of money inside the churches of earthly-minded men and blaspheme the name of God and speak evil of the gospel because of it. They are not glorifying God because of it but are speaking evil of His Holy Name instead.

    The “money changers” inside the churches are exchanging the glory that is due Him from ALL NATIONS for money and make merchandise of the sheep (the four-footed beasts) and go after earthly things…the creeping things (minding how they will get paid for preaching in order to get food, drink and apparel for themselves and their families). They crawl upon the “belly” as they are only serving for their belly and do not care that the outside world blasphemes His Holy Name because of their actions.

    Those are serving only for their belly want you to come join them in their churches where this exchanging the glory of God for money is active. They want you to come and exchange His glory that is due Him from ALL NATIONS for money with them. Membership to their churches demands that you do their exchanges.

    Romans 1:22-25 KJV
    (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
    (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.


    The church should be called by ALL NATIONS the “house of prayer” as they should see us and we are to be the source of praise of God in this earth.

    Instead, they see the moneychangers who exchange the glory that is due Him from ALL NATIONS for money…the image of corruptible man. The outside world only sees it as a “den of thieves” and they blaspheme His Holy Name because of the preaching for the image…money…that is going on inside the churches that have taken His Name in vain as they defraud their brothers.

    Mark 11:15-18 KJV
    (15) And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
    (16) And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
    (17) And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
    (18) And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.


    Not only are they exchanging the glory that is due Him from all nations for money’s sake but they also set aside His commandment (to have love for one another) in order to speak evil of others who do not keep their particular church’s teachings and commandments of men and all the while think that they are doing God “service” for such things. They justify themselves in their evil doings with THE lie that they are doing these “wonderful works” in His name…in His authority. They exchange the truth of God for the lie and serve and worship the commandments of men more than the Creator.

    We are not a DOER of the Law (fulfilling the Law: to have love for one another) when we speak evil of others based on our carnal “law”….our teachings and commandments of men. We are not “gods” (Elohim)…that is, JUDGES for God…when we condemn others as “going to hell” for not keeping our own “works of righteousness”….our so-called works of righteousness that is inscribed in our church tenets, ordinances, teachings for us to keep.

    We are not doing God “service” by being judge, jury and executioner in our judgment of others based on our church’s handwriting of dogmas. There is only ONE Lawgiver who commanded us to have love for one another. There is only ONE Lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy.

    James 4:11-12 KJV
    (11) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
    (12) There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?


    Yet, there are many men preaching that we are “free” to set aside His Holy Commandment in order to serve and worship their handwriting of church dogmas as we use them to speak evil of others…judging others supposedly in God’s name (authority).

    They promise us “liberty” from the keeping of the “Holy Commandment” (to have love for one another) to do such things. Are we really free from His commandment in order to keep their teachings and commandments of men? I think not as they are all perishing from this earth with the using of them.

    2 Peter 2:17-22 KJV
    (17) These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
    (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error
    .

    Do not listen to their “great swelling words of vanity” nor their promise of “liberty” from the keeping of the Holy Commandment. Only those who truly DO the Word shall be saved. We must be DOERS of the “Law” and not just hearers only.

    (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.


    These earthly-minded men come forth to flatter us with their words into going to their “church” where MANY exchange the truth of God for the lie and serve and worship their handwriting of church dogmas. It would have been better for them not to have known the Way of righteousness, than, after having known it, to turn from the Holy Commandment that was delivered for them to keep. They go into the bondage of the keeping of the teachings and commandments of men.

    (21) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    (22) But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.


    In church, they exchange the truth of God into THE LIE (the same lie of the serpent from the beginning) and worship and serve the “creature” (the ordinance) more than the Creator who from the very beginning commanded us to have love for one another.

    Romans 1:
    (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    The following verses is NOT about homosexuality as many suppose but about taking pleasure in others who do such things (their “wonderful works” done supposedly in His name) in the churches of men.

    The “hidden man of the heart” takes pleasure in others who join along with them in their unrighteousness. They burn within the hidden man of the heart towards those who join along with them. They.... within their hearts.... love and support those who take part in what they are taking part in.

    The “woman” is the tongue or breath (spirit) that speaks what is in the heart. They leave the natural use of the “woman”…the tongue or breath that gives birth to words…and join along with others in speaking evil.

    The natural use of the tongue is for kindness to others with their words and yet they abandon the natural use in order to speak the evil words of others that they join along with in their churches. They take pleasure in speaking the same things that others speak in their unrighteousness as they speak evil of others who do not exchange the Truth of God for the lie that they are loving and practicing. They take another's tongue by speaking and affirming of the same things others are saying.

    (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.


    They exchange the Truth of God for THE lie and serve and worship the teachings and commandments of men more than the Creator.

    Even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God has given over such to a reprobate (rejected) mind to do those things which are not convenient.

    The “reprobate mind” is the false teacher in their church who teaches things he ought not be (the teachings and commandments of men that his puffed up mind as vainly “seen”) for money’s sake. They fall victim to the “pastor” of the church who flattered them into keeping company with them….joining along with them in the teachings and commandments…speaking and affirming of what they speak. They abandon the natural use of the “woman” for kindness and love in order to speak the evil of what their fellow congregants are speaking.

    (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    The “woman” is the tongue of breath that we use to speak words. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth. The "woman" must "ready herself" by doing so.

    Ephesians 4:29 KJV
    (29) Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

    Let none of these things come out of the mouth…..

    Colossians 3:8 KJV
    (8) But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

    Christ should be at the hidden man of the heart and we are His “bride” who has “readied herself” by putting off the evil communication out of the mouth (the woman…the breath…the spirit).

    Revelation 19:6-10 KJV
    (6) And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
    (7) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.


    The “wife”…the “woman”…has made herself ready: by putting off all evil communication out of the mouth. The fine linen is the righteousness of the saints who have put to death sin (the LAMB)….the evil that comes out of the mouth.

    (8) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

    Only then can they preach the “true sayings of God” to others. Only then can they be a fellowservant of Christ and preach His testimony to others.

    (9) And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
    (10) And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.


    We are to lay aside all malice and all fraud (guile)…all evil speaking…and hear the Word of Truth when we hear it so that we may grow in His knowledge. Blessed are those who are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb…the hearing of the true sayings of God in their ears…as the Lord comes to open up our minds to the Scriptures.

    We are expected to hear and refrain our tongues from all evil so that we might enter into hearing the mysteries of the kingdom. Outside are those who will be found not putting Christ on at the hearing of His voice. Even what they have heard will be removed from their hearts lest they turn and be converted and be healed by Him.

    1 Peter 2:1-3 KJV
    (1) Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
    (2) As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
    (3) If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious
    .

    The tongue is the “weaker vessel” that readily speaks what is in the heart…out of the hidden man of the heart. We are to let Christ within us rule over our tongues always. How we conduct our tongue in the presence of unbelievers can be effective as others can be “won” by the “conversation of the wives”….the behavior of our tongue.

    1 Peter 3:1-7 KJV
    (1) Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
    (2) While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

    Let us not use our tongues for flattery of others…..the outward “adorning”. We must not use our tongues for a cover of covetousness that is being done in all churches of men.

    (3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

    The “hidden man of the heart” is to have an ornament of a “meek and quiet spirit”…that is, the meek and quiet breath….the meek and quiet “woman” in subjection to the “hidden man of the heart”...following Christ.

    (4) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
    (5) For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
    (6) Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.


    We must dwell with our tongues according to His knowledge giving special attention to what comes out of our mouths. By doing so, our prayers shall not be hindered. Our words shall be heard by God and by others if we always pay attention to what comes out of our mouths…ruling over the “weaker vessel”. What comes out of the mouth is what defiles the “man”.

    (7) Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

    We are espoused to One Husband and we are to put out of our mouths ALL evil communication according to Christ within us. We are to be presented as a “chaste virgin to Christ”. All evil communication must be put off...thereby making the "wife" ready for preaching the Word of truth to others.

    2 Corinthians 11:1-7 KJV
    (1) Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.
    (2) For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.


    But there are MANY false teachers in this world who are serving their own belly rather than Jesus Christ our Lord. The “serpent” crawls upon the belly as they are only minding earthly things…how to get their earthly needs met by you paying them in their churches where they set aside His commandment in order to serve and worship the teachings and commandments of men.

    (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.

    MANY see themselves as “wise” for letting these men come and lead them astray from the simplicity that is in Christ. They “bear well with them”.

    The false teachers come preaching another Jesus who told His followers to “freely give” as they have freely received.

    And many so “wisely” receive another spirit…that is, breath…that they have not received. They are deceived by false teachers into abandoning the natural use of the woman…the tongue or the spirit (breath) …and speak the same evil communications that their false teachers speak.

    We readily receive their same breath…their evil communications that come out of their mouths…as we speak and affirm of what they say. We abandon the natural use of our mouths in order to speak their evil words in unison…in agreement… with them.

    (4) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
    (5) For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.
    (6) But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.


    And they preach things that they ought not be for money’s sake. They do not preach freely. They speak only for money...the image. The image speaks.

    (7) Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

    Those who profess themselves as “wise” let these men come and lead them astray from the Way of righteousness. The false teacher is the “reprobate mind” that they are given over to in order to join along with them in their words and being filled with all unrighteousness.

    Romans 1:25-32 KJV
    (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:


    They leave the natural use of the tongue or spirit in order to speak what their false teacher speaks…and they take pleasure within the heart of those who do such things.

    (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    (29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
    (30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
    (31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:


    They know the Truth of God (the judgment of God that those who do such things are worthy of death). Yet, they exchange the truth of God for the lie and serve and worship the commandments of men. They think that they have "peace and safety" for doing such things...but they perish.

    They have pleasure within the hidden man of the heart of those who do such things who use their mouths for evil as they speak evil of others as “evil doers” who do not keep their handwriting of church dogmas that their “scribes” have engraved for them to keep.

    (32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    Earthly-minded men ( who worry about getting paid to preach in order to get their earthly needs met) preach good words and fair speeches in order to seduce the simple…those who become forgetful to always having love for one another ( forgetting to keep the “daily” sacrifice of our Lord – always bearing about in the body the dying of our Lord Jesus who loved us and gave Himself for us so that we might have His eternal life in this earth).

    They come forth and flatter us with their words in order to get paid. They speak great swelling words of emptiness (as they have NO KNOWLEDGE of the Scriptures) in order to get dishonest gain. They deceitfully handle the Word of God for unjust gain and do not feed their congregations with the Word of Truth and are only feeding themselves….literally…as they serve only for their belly and not the Lord Jesus Christ. They make a gain of those that they are deceiving and leading astray….making them perishing merchandise.

    They seduce MANY away from the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice so that the eternal life of the Lord never is made manifest in the mortal flesh of those who are being led down the broad way to their destruction from off this earth under the wrath of God.

    An old Chirstian saying goes "Do not mix worship with money or politics"

    God did not build those lavish and corrupted places of worship
    Regardless of the state of the Church
    Your body's sacred temple is within
    The duty to uphold truth and purity is in each and every one of us
    Day by day through striving for perfection
    We take one step more foward in the quest of the ages of finding God

    Do not mistake the word of the caeser for the word of God

    Thank you for your input brothers. Thanks for reading and considering what is being said!

    There is no power but of God.

    If we become forgetful to do His Word (His command to have love for one another…which should not be “feigned”), then those who come to deceive us have the power to lead us astray down the broad way to the destruction of our mortal flesh (perishing away to the grave). This is their hour and the power of darkness (our forgetfulness).

    Their presence is in accordance to the working of Satan against those who do not receive the love of the Truth…as they become forgetful to DO it.

    2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 KJV
    (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
    (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.


    Because they do not receive the LOVE of the Truth (by doing it) that they might be saved (their mortal flesh), God is the one who sends them a strong delusion that they should believe THE lie (not “a” lie)….the same lie from the very beginning. They think that they have “peace and safety” to do their “wonderful works” of unrighteousness in His authority…in His name.

    (11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

    Even though they know the commandment of God (the Holy Commandment to have love for one another) , MANY set aside His commandment in order to take pleasure in unrighteousness….and the man of sin is there (in every church gathering) in accordance with the working of Satan so that they may be condemned who believed not the truth but have pleasure in unrighteousness. NO MORTAL FLESH is being saved in any church of man as all are perishing. There is none that is righteous...no, not one...as all have fallen short. We must "awake" to His righteousness and DO it.

    (12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    If we become a forgetful hearer, then “they” come forth to deceive us into going to their churches where NO FLESH is being saved as they are perishing under the wrath of God that comes upon the children of disobedience.

    We fall “asleep” in the night when we become forgetful to have love for one another. Then those who come forth to deceive us use this “power of darkness” to lead us astray. We must not be a forgetful hearer but a DOER of the “work”.

    James 1:25-26 KJV
    (25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

    A man’s religion is in vain (a man who seems to be religious) if he does not bridle his tongue (the “woman” to the “hidden man of the heart”).

    The tongue (the “weaker vessel”) must be in subjection to the hidden man of the heart….Christ within us. Death and life are in the power (hand) of the tongue….the weaker vessel. We are His “bride” who must “ready herself” by putting off all evil communication out of our mouths.

    (26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

    We must remember to always keep the dying of our Lord Jesus Christ in our mortal bodies.

    We are to keep His “daily” sacrifice in our lives ALWAYS and then “they” (the man of sin) cannot stretch forth their hands against us and take away the “daily” sacrifice of Jesus (the Lamb) out of our lives.

    If we fall “asleep” in the “darkness” (being a forgetful hearer), then they come forth to deceive us. This is their “hour and the power of darkness” to lead us astray.

    The teaching of Jesus "daily" in our "temple" is the keeping of His doctrine (to have love for one another as He loved us and gave Himself for us) in our mortal bodies. The "temple" is the mortal body and we are to keep His "daily" sacrifice always in our mortal body which will give us His eternal life in our mortal bodies.

    Luke 22:52-53 KJV
    (52) Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
    (53) When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.


    We must not become feeble…weary…in well doing.

    Romans 2:7 KJV
    (7) To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

    Let us "faint not" in well doing.

    Let us not be weary in well doing….for then we shall reap everlasting life in this mortal body and not decay....

    Galatians 6:8-9 KJV
    (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
    (9) And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not
    .

    Be not weary in well doing….

    2 Thessalonians 3:13-14 KJV
    (13) But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
    (14) And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.


    If we become weary in well doing (becoming “faint and weary” in well doing), then “Amalek”…meaning the “people who lick” (that is, flatter us with their tongues for their own unjust gain) come forth and sever us from the Way of righteousness just as we are escaping the pollutions of the world (Egypt).

    Deuteronomy 25:17-19 KJV
    (17) Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;
    (18) How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.
    (19) Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.


    “Amalek” (the people who lick) comes with his good words and fair speeches (flattering tongue) in order to deceive the “weary and feeble”…those who become weary in well doing…just as they are escaping the pollutions of the world (Egypt).

    2 Peter 2:17-22 KJV
    (17) These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

    Amalek…the people who lick….speak great swelling words of emptiness to deceive those who become weary in well doing…those who do not receive the love of the Truth (by doing it continuously) and be saved (no mortal flesh is being saved in their churches).

    (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
    (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.


    They meet us by the Way of righteousness to cut us off from the path that leads to life in this earth. They want us to exchange the truth of God for the lie....turning from the Holy Commandment that was delivered to us to always keep.

    (21) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    (22) But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.


    It is our own forgetfulness (the power of darkness) to always do well that they use against us to lead us astray and to the grave.

    These men who come forth as “Amalek” did against those who were just escaping from Egypt are MADE TO TAKE AND DESTROY (not “made to be taken and destroyed”). That is their function: to TAKE AND DESTROY the “unstable souls” who do not continuously remember to do well.

    2 Peter 2:12-15 KJV
    (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;
    (13) And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
    (14) Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
    (15) Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;


    It is all by design.

    The “man of sin” is already at work in every church gathering for no MORTAL FLESH is being saved in any of them. The life of Jesus (the Son of man) is being betrayed into the hands of sinners who are preaching for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men for money’s sake and have no understanding of the Scriptures.

    They ….”the son of destruction (perdition)”….are many and if we sit together with them in their churches (which is committing “fornication”) we are also being destroyed along with them.

    They defile our mortal flesh when we sit together in their churches because we become ONE mortal FLESH with them who are being destroyed from off this earth under the judgment of God upon them. Their judgment is not lingering. Their destruction is not slumbering as they decay away in their mortal flesh to the eventual grave. They are mortally decaying away under the sun of God's rising wrath upon them. Our God is a consuming fire.

    MANY are following their destructive ways as they are being made merchandise of. The mystery of iniquity is already at work in their churches. Their judgment is not lingering and their damnation does not slumber as they are all PERISHING in their mortal flesh from off this earth. They are dying from this earth when we should be looking for the life of Jesus to appear in our mortal flesh in the here and now which gives us His heavenly, eternal life NOW. NOW IS THE TIME of salvation!

    2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV
    (1) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
    (2) And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
    (3) And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not
    .

    We MUST hear His voice …His command to “arise” …..and come out from among them. Why seek the living among those who are “dead”?

    The man of sin are many men who have “crept in unawares” while men “slept”…that is, who have become forgetful to always do well….having love for one another. An enemy has done this as their presence in the churches is in accordance to the working of Satan and destroys those that do not receive the love of the Truth (by doing it) and be saved in their mortal bodies.

    We must earnestly contend for the faith for certain men have crept in unawares. Their job: to destroy those who believe not. True believing is DOING His will. True believing is being a DOER OF THE WORK (have love for one another) and not just be a hearer only. True hearing is doing.

    Jude 1:3-7 KJV
    (3) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

    These “certain men” are collectively called the “man of sin” as they cannot cease from sin as they beguile the unstable souls. They have one function: to destroy those who waver in well doing.

    (4) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

    These men are made to take and destroy the unstable souls who waver in well doing.

    Remember how the Lord having saved the people out of the land of Egypt but afterward DESTROYED those that did not believe. This is still going on today as many have been escaping from the pollutions of the world (Egypt) but have become weary and feeble in well doing and so have fallen victim to the false teachers who come forth and speak good words and fair speeches.

    They use feigned words to flatter their victims who go and sit together in their churches and listen to their empty words as they have NO UNDERSTANDING of the Scriptures.

    (5) I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

    They are “under darkness” as they have NO UNDERSTANDING of the things that they are preaching and have no idea that they are really under the judgment of God as His wrath comes upon them and they perish in their mortal flesh from off this earth that they were supposed to inherit. But their dominion to capture and destroy us shall come to an end finally.

    (6) And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

    The judgment of God in their churches is active. And yet MANY go to their churches and follow after their pernicious ways.

    The “fornication” is the sitting together with them in their churches. MANY go after them quickly and are perishing in the wrath of God that comes upon the children of disobedience. We sin against our own mortal body when we “go to church” where we become one in flesh with them.

    (7) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

    We must NOT be joined together with them in their churches. They are called the “son of perdition” for a very good reason as their destruction is not slumbering as they are all perishing away to the grave as we speak. We become ONE FLESH …perishing away with the son of destruction...when we go and sit together with them (the “fornication”). The mystery of iniquity is ALREADY AT WORK among them.

    1 Corinthians 6:15-20 KJV
    (15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
    (16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
    (17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.


    We must FLEE FORNICATION by coming out from among their churches and be separate. Those who go and are attached to them in their churches are committing “fornication” and are sinning against their own mortal body as they are being destroyed along with the son of destruction.

    (18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
    (19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of
    the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?


    We must come out from among them and be separate…glorifying God in our mortal body. Our spirit….our breath are His also. We must no longer use our breath to speak the man of sin’s words…his “teachings and commandments of men”. We must no longer be a part of their church in mortal body nor in the words that come out of our mouths. Their words must no longer be in our conversation.

    (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

    This is our sanctification: that we should abstain from “fornication”. We must no longer sit together with them in their churches where we become ONE FLESH with them in their destruction.

    1 Thessalonians 4:2-4 KJV
    (2) For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
    (3) For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
    (4) That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;


    We must no longer be together with them. What communion has light with darkness? We must come out from among them and be separate. We must no longer be attached to the “unclean” body….the “dead body”.

    2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV
    (14) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
    (15) And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
    (16) And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
    (17) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
    (18) And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

    Again, if Jesus teaches us “daily” in the temple of our body (ALWAYS keeping the “daily” sacrifice of the dying of the Lord Jesus in our mortal body), then those who follow in the footsteps of Judas (the church leaders) cannot deceive us with their good words and fair speeches….with their flattering lips (the “kiss”).

    They come to cause divisions among us as they come with “swords” and they do these things for money’s sake….just as Judas did.

    Luke 22:52-53 KJV
    (52) Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves
    ?

    This is their hour and the power of darkness when we forget to DO His commandments as they come to take Jesus out of our lives so that His eternal, heavenly life never appears in our mortal flesh in this earth. If we keep company with them, then we perish along with them.

    (53) When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

    The Son of man ( the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh) is being betrayed unto the hands of sinners. They come with a “kiss”…the flattering lips that deceive the hearts of the “simple” who become forgetful to always do His commandment to have love for one another.

    Luke 22:48 KJV
    (48) But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

    We are to salute one another with a “HOLY KISS” not a feigned kiss that hides the covetousness within the hearts of those who follow after Judas as they come to take the keeping of the daily sacrifice out of our lives and want us to join them in their denominations (divisions that they cause) in order for you to pay them the image….money.

    Romans 16:16-18 KJV
    (16) Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
    (17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them
    .

    They come with their “swords” (causing divisions among us). They come as kings and not servants with their “staves” and want to bring us into their bondage of the teachings and commandments of men that turn us away from the Way of righteousness. They use their flattering lips (the feigned “kiss” to deceive the hearts of the simple…those who do not always remember to let brotherly love continue..

    (18) For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

    If we do not remember to always keep His commandments….

    Proverbs 7:1-27 KJV
    (1) My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
    (2) Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
    (3) Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
    (4) Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:


    ….then the strange “woman” (the tongue that teaches things that it ought not be for money’s sake) has the power to deceive us with the flattering words (the “kiss”).

    (5) That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
    (6) For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,


    The flattering tongue (the strange “woman” that hides the covetousness within the hidden man of the heart) deceives the hearts of the “simple”….those who are void of understanding as they become feeble and weary in well doing.

    (7) And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
    (8) Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
    (9) In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:


    We cannot be joined together with the “harlot” tongue as we shall perish. The harlot tongue speaks good words and fair speeches to hide the covetousness within the heart.

    (10) And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
    (11) (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
    (12) Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)


    The “harlot” tongue that preaches strange doctrines comes to deceive with a “kiss”…the flattering lips.

    (13) So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

    The harlot tongue falsely prophesies “peace, peace” where there is no peace.

    (14) I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
    (15) Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee
    .

    They pose as ministers of “righteousness” (the fine linen of Egypt) but they preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men that are of the rudiments of the world (Egypt). They come to bring you into their bondage.

    (16) I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
    (17) I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
    (18) Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves
    .

    They are not looking for the life of Jesus to appear in the mortal flesh. The antichrist (the deceiver) denies that Jesus IS COMING in the flesh….our mortal flesh.

    (19) For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
    (20) He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

    They use their good words and fair speeches to deceive the simple into “going to church” and keeping their teachings and commandments of men that are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone that goes.

    (21) With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
    (22) He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
    (23) Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
    (24) Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
    (25) Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.


    Many are perishing because they go and keep company with them. Their ways are the sure way to the grave…the broad way that leads to the destruction of the mortal body from this earth.

    (26) For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
    (27) Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.


    We must not keep company with them in their churches. We must be joined together with those who are using their tongues to preach strange doctrines for money’s sake (the harlot tongue of men). We become ONE FLESH with them when we go sit together with them speaking their words and affirming of them. They want us to exchange the glory of God that is due Him from all nations for money’s sake.

    1 Corinthians 6:15-16 KJV
    (15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
    (16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh


    The “harlot” tongue speaks great swelling words of vanity to deceive those who were just escaping the pollutions of this world but have become “weary” in well doing.

    2 Peter 2:17-18 KJV
    (17) These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
    (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.


    The harlot tongue speaks feigned words…. great swelling words…. to hide the covetousness within their hearts. And MANY are following their destructive ways.

    2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV
    (1) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
    (2) And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
    (3) And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

    If we always remember to keep His commandment (to have love for one another), then we shall be kept away from the “evil woman”…the harlot tongue that preaches things it ought not be for money’s sake.

    Proverbs 6:23-26 KJV
    (23) For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
    (24) To keep thee from the evil woman
    , from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman
    .
    (25) Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
    (26) For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.

    The harlot tongue (the strange “woman” that preaches strange doctrines) wears the “attire of a harlot” ….that is, uses flattering words to seduce us. Their words are glittering…beautiful to our ears. Yet, the flattering tongue uses flattering words to cover up the covetousness that is hidden within the hidden man of the heart.

    Proverbs 7:9-10 KJV
    (9) In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
    (10) And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.


    When the flattering preacher speaks fair, believe him not for there are 7 abominations within his heart. His heart is full of iniquity as he covets after others gold, silver and apparel. It is not evident as the tongue is used to cover it up.

    Proverbs 26:23-28 KJV
    (23) Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross.
    (24) He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
    (25) When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
    (26) Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.
    (27) Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.


    A flattering mouth works ruin.

    (28) A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

    As Jesus said of the scribes and Pharisees…..they appear beautiful outwardly but within they are full of all uncleanness (7 abominations).

    Matthew 23:27-28 KJV
    (27) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
    (28) Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.


    But the true apostles (sent) of Christ did not at any time use flattering words nor an outward wearing ( a cloak) of covetousness. The harlot tongue wears an “outward” cloak….beautiful, flattering words towards their listeners…in order to conceal the uncleanness within the heart. The strange woman wears that attire of a harlot….flattering words to conceal the covetousness within.

    1 Thessalonians 2:3-7 KJV
    (3) For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:
    (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, which trieth our hearts.


    An apostle of Christ (truly sent by Him) does not use flattering words. They do not speak to please men. NO GUILE (deceit) IS FOUND in their mouths.

    (5) For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:
    (6) Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.
    (7) But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth
    her children:

    The “woman” (to the “hidden man of the heart”) …is the tongue….that should not use flattering words for an outward showing. The use of feigned, beautiful-sounding words to seduce others in order to get gain is the “wearing of gold and putting on of apparel”.

    1 Peter 3:3-4 KJV
    (3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
    (4) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.


    Those who seek to seduce us to keep company with them in their churches use their mouth to speak great swelling words having men’s persons in admiration (wonders) because of gain.

    Jude 1:16 KJV
    (16) These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

    Do not be carried away by their many strange doctrines. Remember the many foreign wives of Solomon who turned his heart away. The teachings and commandments of men turn us away from the Truth.

    The lips of a “strange woman”….a strange tongue that preaches strange doctrines….drop as a honeycomb. The mouth is smoother than oil but those who go sit together with them in their churches become one flesh with them and go to the grave along with them.

    Proverbs 5:1-13 KJV
    (1) My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
    (2) That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
    (3) For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
    (4) But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged
    sword.

    Their ways are destructive and go down to death. Destruction and misery are in their ways. Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips.

    (5) Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
    (6) Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
    (7) Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

    We must REMOVE our way far from “her”…..

    (8) Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
    (9) Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
    (10) Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;


    If we sit together with them in their churches speaking their words and supporting them, then our flesh and body are consumed. We become one flesh with those who are perishing from this earth under the wrath of God that comes upon the children of disobedience. We must flee the “fornication”. We must come out from among the churches of men and be separate.

    (11) And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
    (12) And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
    (13) And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
