Spirits and Spirituality

 

 

John 8:23 King James Version (KJV)

23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

 

 

 

Only what Jesus Christ testifies … is the truth!

Minister Clark

 

 

 

Jesus Christ testifies what he has seen, experienced, created, and lived in the Godhead from the beginning of creation … before we were created, until He came, and even beyond that. He knows EVERYTHING.

Therefore, understand that any:

human,

angel,

dream,

vision,

spirit/ghost,

spiritual experiences,

spiritual powers,

spirit travel

spirit guides, escorts to spirit places

spiritual enlightenment,

Satan friendship

Some conversations/discussions about the Bible,

Some individual or group Bible studies and the teachers of those Bible Studies

Conversation(s) with a spirit,

Visitations by dead persons, relatives, or friends

Angels, guides, spirits of persons claiming to “introduce you to Jesus”

 

 

which oppose, contend with, mock, belittle, argue against, twist/pervert, or use for selfish motives what JESUS has testified  …  IS A LIE by a LIAR.

 

 

Hebrews 1 King James Version (KJV)

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

 

 

Hebrews 2:1 King James Version (KJV)

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

 

 

Jesus said,

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33

 

 

You must choose the courage to be honest and admit to yourself that you have been wrong … if you have been directing your life off of one of these invisible lying spiritual experiences.

You must choose the courage to be honest and admit to yourself, to God, and to reject it with other people if you have had one of these false spiritual experiences OR if you are having them RIGHT NOW!

 

Participation is Appreciation is Assimilation

 

We may not realize that we are liars — untaught, deceived, unknowing, or wrongfully taught. Co-mingling in these spiritual experiences and claiming they are from God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit makes you a liar, too, by participating with them. Satan will, then, take your mind captive and nobody BUT THE REAL JESUS will be able to convince you otherwise and deliver you with your mind out of Satan’s supernatural vice-grip!

The unfathomable, incomprehensible love and compassion God has for us is proven in the reality that while we are his enemies by participating in these lying and foolish experiences, God continues to give us air to breathe, food to eat, employment to rent, lease, or buy homes to dwell in an beautify. He continues to see griefs in us and work to heal us. He gives medical doctors for when things happen beyond our belief that God exists. He gives loved ones, spouses, families, friends. He gives the beauty of His earth and waters to look at! He gives comforting things and other enjoyments if Satan disables our bodies in any way.

There are so many things that make us see a loving God despite our wicked selves.

 

 

BE HONEST

When we accept that only what Jesus Christ testifies about Himself in the Holy Bible is the real Jesus and the real truth, we receive power from Jesus, Himself, to obey Him. This empowerment is called by Christ — “faith”.

Any person can detect what is the “real” Jesus  Christ (the Bible Jesus) and  what is “an imposter of Jesus Christ” by choosing to believe and obey the facts presented in today’s post:

Religious Christians

 

 

 

Am I A Religious Christian?

 

Bottom Line: Being a Christian is all about “holiness”.

Holiness is Christ’s love for God and for one another and that love is proven in what we wear and how we groom, in where we go, in what entertainments we feed on, and in what we say and the tones in which we speak to people — ESPECIALLY OUR CHRISTIAN BRETHREN.

As a Christian, if we withhold Christ’s love from just one person on earth, it means I am a “religious person”. 

 

Hebrews 12 King James Version (KJV)

1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

 

14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

 

 

DANGER IN BEING A “RELIGIOUS” CHRISTIAN

 

It is extremely dangerous to be a “religious person” or “religious Christian”.

It is never good to be a “religious person”  or “religious Christian” because it means we have all kinds of behaviors developed that make one appear  to people as knowing God, praying to God, going to church or religious meetings supposedly about God — yet may have broken fellowship with Jesus Christ (God) or never had fellowship with God at all!

The pattern of the church today, according to Revelation Chapters 1 through 3, is MOST, not some, but most of us wear the name of Christ — but we do not take seriously the call, its required separations, costs, and their consequences — so we envy, mock, hate and harm those who do.

We are not realizing that harming, hating, mocking, or rejecting our very own Christian brethren who are only focused to please the Lord reveals to God which of those in the church are, actually, against Christ! This is what it means to be a “religious person” or “religious Christian”.

Jesus calls it “Carnal-minded”.

  

Some religious Christians call you ‘holier than thou’. Some carnal-minded Christians call you ‘so spiritual you are no earthly good’. Some religious Christians call you ‘super spiritual’. Your carnally minded Christian brothers and sisters (some being pastors and preachers) may call you many things to scorn you and try to change you or shut you down!

They’re idea and understanding of Jesus Christ is fake. While in church, the Jesus such persons are worshiping is a fake Jesus — because they think He is okay with their heart attitude and their expressions of it through religious deeds such as in Matthew chapter 7.

 

 

JESUS, the Lord of the church and head of the family of God in heaven and in earth — calls you ‘holy’, ‘precious’, ‘faithful’, and ‘peculiar‘ (meaning just for Himself).

What JESUS calls you and thinks of you is the only thing that matters and it is the only truth about you.

So, as Jesus taught us in Revelation chapters 1-3, when your church pastor and brethren are “religious Christians”, you are to:

Overcome, Be faithful, Endure, OVERCOME!

 

 

Romans 8 King James Version (KJV)

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

 

This passage from Romans reminds me that if I don’t change from being a “religious” Christian, Jesus numbers me with those in Luke Chapter 7 — where He makes his point in verse 23 — that, in God’s eyes, I am a “hater”. HATING GOD while doing all kinds of outward displays of worshiping Him makes me a “religious person”/”religious Christian”. Such Christians end up damned for all eternity with all haters.

Am I a religious Christian? Search oneself and decide.

 

 

Spiritual Climate: Churches and Taxes

Where Are We Going After COVID? Tax Exempt Letters

 

The spiritual climate we live in as Christians trying to obey Jesus while respecting the national and local governments involves the tax exempt letter as a standard method for starting a church.   It is time preachers face the truth that tax exemption is a teaching or tradition from men — not from God.

The practice of tax exempt status for starting a church emerged to gain the same recognition as non-profit social organizations who help our society and it was changed into a “doctrine” BY PREACHERS (or those functioning in the occupation of preacher though not called or sent by Jesus to preach). Men began to convince preachers to impose this trend upon themselves, for money donations! 

That was our mistake, because the Church is a creature so much greater and higher in cause and effect than any non-profit organization could ever hope to be. Church is a unique creature from Heaven, even as Christ Jesus the Head is from above — not from down here beneath.

 

 

When starting your church work, other pastors or your denomination will tell you:

“FIRST — BEFORE YOU DO ANY MINISTRY — apply and get your “501-C3 Letter of Tax Exempt Status from the IRS”.

 

 

You are to get it on your own if independent, or more conveniently get it by joining into a group exemption under and organization or denomination that already has one to save you time and money. This “convenience” does, instantly, enlarge a denomination. You will learn, sometimes too late, that it will also cause control over your preaching, when and where you hold church, how you grow, how your income flows in or out, and your freedom to mature members into what Christ commanded you to.

One of the first things other preachers may ask you to help you out or size you up is “do you have your exemption letter”? Your answer will often be taken for whether you are to be regarded “seriously” as a church or blown off as a passing effort.

Each year, you must report and PROVE YOU ARE WORTHY TO KEEP YOUR TAX EXEMPT LETTER STATUS, by showing what community programs and services you are doing that prove you are actively a “benefit to the public community”. Otherwise, you risk losing the status.

 

 

 

Proving you are worthy to keep the exemption letter is how the false doctrine of tax exempt status has, actually, shaped and defined in our modern time what a “church” is.

Minister (Pastor) Clark

 

 

 

Shaping your church work to fulfill definitions of the IRS for non-profits and seeking endorsement by man as a true church via tax exemption is, in and of itself, an attitude of blasphemy without realizing it. It is irreverence for our Lord and King of the church!  We once knew that we are accountable to only Jesus for our fulfillment as pastors and our endorsement as a true church!

Through the exemption application process, community services and programs came as a regular activity defining one church as more impacting to the public community. We once knew that our impact was measured only by Jesus and it was from the kind of lives we lived in holiness of love for Him and one another! We once were content to preach the Gospel, win souls, and take care of our own members’ needs and those of other churches (2 Corinthians Ch 8-9).

To keep your tax exempt letter status, YOU MAY NOT DO ANYTHING or PREACH ANYTHING THE UNBELIEVING PUBLIC doesn’t want your nose butting into. If you do, your tax exempt “letter” will be revoked and you will lose the trust factor of the public when you ask the public for money that has the incentive of giving them a tax write-off. People no longer having the proof that you are “tax deductible” can be frightening if your income relies on their donations.

How will we pay for our programs, services, and activities? How will we finance many endeavors called ministries? Especially, if a small church with no deep-pocket members must fulfill the call of Jesus from only those few members, can it be done without public solicitation of funds?

It really makes us look at what we have turned church and ministry into. If our methods don’t work for the least among us, it can’t be Jesus’ leading us. His truth is the same for everybody, in all times, seasons, and spiritual climates — even those to come!

Satan’s Weapon To Shackle You

Even the Internal Revenue Service tells you the ONLY purpose for applying for a tax exemption letter is so we can “solicit” (ask) the secular public and others to give us money and things to finance what Jesus sent us to do.

The secular government respects that unbelievers have no business telling you how to do what God Almighty miraculously called you to do AND HOW HE HAS TOLD YOU TO STRUCTURE IT.

 

 

Depending on how you look at it, gaining the tax exempt status letter from the IRS has been a cooperative, beneficial relationship. However, Jesus told me to warn pastors and Christian brethren for the spiritual times and spiritual climate we are NOW IN:

“If it is not Jesus’ way … then SOMEWAY the devil is in it!”

 

Hundreds of other churches and ministries across the country, including at least one well known and decades-old worker whom I met here in the Treasure Valley, have chosen the path that has freed us to worship the Lord however He pleases and by whatever structures He pleases.

Won’t you consider doing so, too? The road ahead will prove that you are going to have to forsake the pull of this world for pursuing exemption, anyway. It will, increasingly, hinder your ability to live, preach, and “reach” with the Gospel.

Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ (aka) Truth Seekers Church is legally and automatically tax exempt. I structured the church the way Jesus Christ led me to structure it, originally, as a sole proprietorship

All churches begin with only one person — it’s inside the spirit of the Pastor even as Jesus the Chief Shepherd said, “upon this rock I will build MY church”.

Later, I was led to enlarge the vision to “Minister LLC” in the state of Idaho with assumed names of Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ and Truth Seekers Church. This change was to “provide things honest in the sight of all men” and “shun the appearance of evil” lest some evil-hearted person try to imply that the church is just personal. There is a clear distinction for banking and offerings.

I am happy the Lord has chosen me as one of many throughout the country and Treasure Valley to be part of a new era of Christians. Jesus wants His preachers to PREACH His message without distraction and bondage from Satan’s number one nuisance — money.

The message is REPENT of YOUR SINS and OBEY THE GOOD NEWS!

The good news is Jesus Christ is alive and with all power to save anyone from the evil powers coming against us as sin, sickness, disease, death, Hell, and damnation.

We pray you in Christ’s stead, “Be ye reconciled to God”! (2 Cor 5:20)
