For Jesus Choose Your Loyalties
Mapping out future decisions to srengthen the members in Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ/Truth Seekers Church for achieving Revelation 22, I was faced with my personal, daily, cross of having to choose my loyalties.
You are faced with the same cross if you are, truly, a Christian — all day in every activity of life — you must choose your loyalties whether to the Spirit of Holiness in Jesus Christ or your own flesh and its loyalty to the spirit of this world (1 Corinthians 2:12).
I considered joining to a group of Independent Ministers that I found online (FGEA.org). They appeared to have a similar call from Jesus as I … to bring Christians back to New Testament simplicity of worshiping JESUS and away from modern stresses of ministry that lead Chrisitans away from Revelation 22. I don’t need their ordination (I’m already ordained since 1987) but always welcome fellowship, if possible, with other preachers. Since things on a webpage can be fraudulent these days, I called the phone number hoping to speak to a living person and was happy to get one.
The gentleman’s conversation seemed to sync with my heart and I said I would call back today if he had time for more questions and answers regarding their work and mine.
I left him with this Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ™/Truth Seekers Church preaching site to get to “know” my heart somewhat while awaiting this afternoon’s call back. He assured me there would be time and he and his wife looked forward to my return call this afternoon. He sounded happy, BUT…
I called back and was greeted with anger and a flat, straight, statement: “We’ve looked at your website and disagree with a number of things on your site. We can’t have you in our group. We are Trump supporters and we believe the election was stolen! We don’t believe there was an insurrection! We are against abortion, we are against gays …”. “We know we are doing what God wants us to do”.
Why did he say that??? It is because of an encouragement given on how to survive as a Christian during various events surrounding us and all kinds of other events Jesus foretold. Covid, Mr. George Floyd, insurrections and other world events were mentioned.
I asked, “well can we discuss”? The reply — ” We don’t have time for you (speaking harshly and angrily)”.
For Your Learning and Survival
- Was I rejected for a heresy against Jesus — God in flesh — The Christ? No.
- Was I rejected for being a sinner against His Cross? No.
- Was I rejected for being a woman? No.
IF you are a disciple of JESUS, you represent the interests and Kingdom culture of The Christ
— not that of any man, people, or cause.
Some of you will remember that our Lord Jesus has warned us (sternly) that our interests had better remain purely His own. You will remember because the Holy Spirit will make you remember IF you have the Spirit of Jesus Christ in you. If you don’t have the Spirit of Jesus Christ, you are not His! Many “Christians”, preachers ,and pastors ARE NONE OF HIS.
We are in this sinner world, but not part of its mindset. We love the souls of the people in this world, but are not caught up in their world nor in love with it… by the miracle power of JESUS — the Christ!
SURVIVAL IS “STAY FOCUSED” ON JESUS NOT POLITICS
Can you even imagine Jesus getting involved in Augustus Caesar’s political future or failure? Can you imagine the Lord’s apostles marching angrily, riotously, up Rome’s government steps to force ANYTHING they wanted for Judea? For a Christian the answer should be … MUST BE … “No”!
5) “For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: 6) If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly”.
Despite, the increasingly rare finding of pastors who choose loyalties to only Jesus Christ, you must stay focused if you love Jesus. Stay away from false preachers who don’t care about your soul — whomever they are and wherever you find them — even if he or she is your intimate friend. Run from them! Don’t have any respect of persons because the preacher is even world famous. You don’t owe anybody to sit there and listen to spiritual pig slop. You don’t owe ANYBODY any loyalty when it comes down to your soul and the Almighty God.
I live the same temptations that any Christian does. I do vote my conscience at the time when voting ballots come around and that must be your own private issue between you and God. Sometimes persons may not even choose to vote — that’s your business, not your pastor’s or any other preacher!
I understand what you are going through. It breaks Jesus’ heart (and mine!) when you desperately use time, fuel, wear and tear on your body or vehicle, and sacrificing things to go look for a pastor to tell you the truth and finally convince yourself to go to a church somewhere, only to arrive and all you hear when you sit down is a speech about America’s politics or a “cloaked push” (in the guise of a sermon) for their personal candidates and causes. ALL YOU CAME FOR WAS TO GET RIGHT WITH JESUS CHRIST and hear HIS WORDS for your eternal escape from the evil life you have been living!
For you who are already saved to Jesus Kingdom and you non-Christians who are considering getting saved … please forgive us who do repent of doing such things to your decision to follow Jesus Christ.
We repent means “we have changed our hearts” — we don’t do that anymore. Repent does not mean … I’m sorry you feel that way, I’m sorry for how I may have made you feel, I’m sorry I did it but can’t help myself because it’s how I feel!
I called to hear about Jesus, His Gospel, how we might work together in that. Instead, there was a strong and angry backlash about America’s politics. I informed him that “I can’t be a part of your group”. He responded, “we won’t have you”! Did he not realize as a preacher sent by Jesus that the way he was talking to me was sin (railing, reviling). He was sinning against the God he believes is leading him even while he was championing and defending his political causes that he thinks are FOR GOD.
CLUBS NOT CHURCHES
There are pastors and other Christians — all over this country who are loyal to the spirit of this world, who risk their eternal salvation on an earthly political issue or history grudge. These often have a false doctrine that they cannot lose their salvation, so they don’t fear to offend the Lord. These are the kind of preachers and pastors who can preach for an hour on America and politics and ancestry, but cannot live a minute of Matthew 5 (Judgment Day attitudes of our Lord Jesus) … nor fulfill their responsibility to JESUS of teaching you to live it … because they don’t believe it is critical for their own salvation. Get away from them and find yourself a pastor somewhere who only wants Jesus and fears Him to be loyal to what He assigned them to do — protect your eternal soul from the pending damnation when Jesus returns.
The man who spoke with me (and multiple “Christians” I’ve encountered in travels from Midwest to Pacific Northwest … and in just daily living at home in Boise) are very warrior-like in their love for America’s issues. They are yelling, screaming, speaking harshly or roughly to you or to me, using horrible profanity on their flags that they sinfully fly with no care for even our little children’s pure hearts and eyes — having no respect for Jesus, America, or our children and youth.
This behavior is called “railing” and JESUS commands us through apostle Paul to put such people out of the Church and have no fellowship with them because they are living Satan, but claiming to be living the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ while they do the very things that JESUS hates.
They pervert Jesus’ Gospel as others in Galatians 1:8.
Choose your loyalties — you can love and companion with these kind of “Christians” or with Jesus to save you from their eternal damnation. You cannot choose both. Jesus said, you will cling to one and despise the other. Jesus said, you will hate the one and love the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (the spirit of this world).
These are all Clubs – Not Churches.
The religious scenery of America proves that so much done as “church” is, often, a private club for politics, racism, social services, and other causes — but “church” for Jesus Christ is the front face being used to gather you in.
Keep Unity With Holy Spirit
It is easy for any of us preachers, pastors and Christians to descend into this hell-bound attitude exposed in Revelation 22 while thinking that we are still a church serving Jesus Christ.
Jesus warns us in Revelation 2:9 and in 3:9 about changing His purposes inside our churches to use His assembly for Satan’s purposes. If we keep focus on living holy in our own homes, on our own streets, and in our own neighborhoods –meaning keeping life all about Jesus’ interests, not ours — we can avoid becoming part of a club fronting as a church
We don’t even notice it has happened or when we changed. Maintain Unity With Holy Spirit.
- For example, what if you are a “Christian” AND a pastor who is claiming you are pro-life, but you are a racist (James 2:9) wanting all African-Americans deprived, suffering, or dead? Keep Unity With Holy Spirit!
- What if you are a “Christian” and a pastor talking hatefully or mean about your stance against “gays” but in secret you love pornography, HBO movies with sexual scenes, nudity, perversion and prejudices against women (Romans 1:18-32)? Keep Unity With Holy Spirit.
- What if you are a “Christian” and pastor who doesn’t smoke but you drink! Keep Unity With Holy Spirit.
- What if you’re a pastor who doesn’t smoke, drink or chew — nor hang with those who do … but you go to your city-wide Pastor Prayer Breakfasts and gossip in the form of “prayer” to destroy the works of other pastors or influence the opinions of other pastors and the people toward them? Keep Unity With Holy Spirit.
Where does the Bible’s line stop??!!! Where does Jesus’ Gospel line stop? Where does YOUR line stop? Keep Unity With the Holy Spirit!
What if you are a pastor who lives a godly life in reality, but you use the respect people have for your godly life to commit the SIN of hijacking Jesus’ pulpit which is holy, reserved by Himself for only Himself. You’ve hijacked it for your personal flesh feelings, agendas, and various politics … and left the souls of His people in jeopardy by not feeding them His pure words and motives. Beware and keep unity with the Holy Spirit.
What is mournful, is how consistently I’ve heard Christians around Boise and America “bragging” that their pastor — who fits into this hijacking character — is “such a man of God. He really preaches the Bible”. Yet, I see the lives of these Christians and it is not possible that their pastor “is such a man of God who really preaches the Bible” or he just doesn’t know what kind of lives they are living by what he is training them — Revelation 2:9 and 3:9.
Only God knows the secrets of your heart-obedience to Jesus’ authority and His words. Obedience to Jesus is guaranteed to be the only thing He is judging in any of us. Where no man can see — God sees all, pays back all, and always rewards His faithful. ones.
To Jesus, “nothing matters but your soul going into Heaven or Hell”. That’s what He lived, died, and rose on the third day for. That’s ALL Jesus focused on and He warned us to focus with Him on that while He was aware of all that was being done wrong in Roman government toward his countrymen. Did he care about that? YES!
He cared so much that He took care of it God’s way and resisted the temptation to handle it His own way
… as we, too, must do who obey Him following HIS light and shining it for the entire world.
When we forsake the basics: Being kind (Matthew 5),
Being ready to search scripture and see if we may be deceived in some area (Acts 17:11),
Being loving toward any and every human being by the power of God in Christ Jesus — even if we don’t see what they see (2 Timothy 2:24-26)
— then, we have gotten CAUGHT UP IN THE THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD AROUND US AND WE DIRECT OURSELVES BY ITS ISSUES. We are no longer caught up in the Gospel of Jesus Christ to obey him and fear His authority.
then, we become no longer Christians. We are a club.

LIKE JESUS – NO ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE
Since Jesus had no office for meeting with anyone and none of the apostles had an “office”, money will no longer be received and paid to investors of commercial property for a “physical office” of Truth Seekers Church. No property search for a physical administrative office will be pursued. Jesus turned the entire world without most of the things we think are needed today “to do church” . When needed, Jesus always met with persons anywhere and He has wisdom and power today to guide “in the moment” a location to meet with any sincere and precious soul seeking spiritual counsel. The Ethiopian eunuch was sent by Jesus to bring His Gospel to an entire nation from counsel received while riding on a chariot! (Acts 8:25-40)
