The Jezebel Church: A World Ready to Ride the Beast
The world - especially the church world - is preparing for the Grand Opening of the Great Tribulation. The noisy old-school church that holds to the Pre-Tribulation Rapture will be removed out of their way. Our presence empowered by the Holy Ghost holds the Wicked One, the Antichrist, at bay and restrains him from his official position as the head of the One World Order. The Antichrist is probably alive but being held in reserve and angry that his readiness to step up to the Satan-appointed task keeps getting held down and hindered. The entire world of One World advisors and promoters will call for the greatest celebration of this generation. Declaring the World of Nations as "One World Under god" will create pandemonium in every major city of this earth, even Jerusalem.
Religion is the one source of world peace and unity. Finally, there isn't any religious entity left to deny "all religions as being equal." With the Rapture-ready saints gone, the Jezebel church wins the day and is fully prepared to be partners with the powers of the One World Order. New revelations, new translations, and new interpretations will have prepared the world for a new view of God, of Christ, and of the Spirit. The deception will be so complete that Satan - as an angel of light - will step right up to the world church and receive the long sought after role as the Father's replacement. He will produce his "christ" and his "spirit," and the whole world will bow at his feet.
Five unbiblical ideas have prepared the church world for this coming dark hour.
FIRST, the false anointing and spiritual-type activities have become dominant in the spiritual world. The central place that the Bible and Jesus Christ once held has been replaced with a spirit being called the Holy Spirit. It's like the church has entered a spirit dispensation, and the primary expectations revolve around some kind of strange spirit experience. Impartations from individual-to-individual are occurring at almost every church altar. There is no such Biblical truth as a Holy Ghost dispensation. The church life from Pentecost up until the Rapture is a Jesus Christ dispensation. He is the Lord of the Church. Yes, He fills us with His Spirit. Yes, there is joy and rejoicing. Yes, the gifts of His Spirit are available, but it is all centered in Jesus Christ alone.
SECOND, this new spirit has subjected himself to the individuals or at least convinced them that he has done so. Men and women speak in tongues at their own will as often and as much as they will. They prophesy over each other as is pleasing to them and constantly intrigue each other by promising good things. New revelations of doctrines and ideas fill their thinking with religious imaginations. They travel from city to city, binding spirits over these cities and calling down judgments of perceived darkness. Paranormal things are filling the lives of the religious world with signs, wonders, visions, and dreams, which are mostly bizarre and without any Biblical context. These are spirits willing to be used because the desired end is total control over the individual.
THIRD, prayer has moved from a relationship with the Father and His Son to a man-centered mindset. Instead of praying "Thy kingdom come," it is proclaiming, even demanding, "Thy kingdom come." They say that no one is supposed to pray for God's will, but they are to command what they perceive is God's will. The church world is being taught that they can speak things into existence and command the spirit world. One fad after another has taken the church world from a cross-centered spirituality to a man-centered spirituality and prayer life. Very few Christians are able to judge this incredible departure from truth.
FOURTH, the Bible is called the "dusty old truths of the past." Almost everyone is looking for something new and intriguing. The evangelicals have their new translation, the charismatics have their new revelations, and many fundamentalists have their new interpretations. Any church movement that does not have a strict and unflinching devotion to the plain Word of God will be deceived. The Bible is infallible and our one and only rule for truth and life. We have a church generation where "truth has fallen in the streets" and there is no way back except for a return to "every Word of God."
FIFTH, the theology of this deception is earth-centered instead of Heaven-centered. The environment, politics, and wealth are the heartthrob of the Jezebel church. They treat heavenly truths like some false "pie-in-the-sky" theology. They laugh at those of us who have our eyes trained on the coming of our Lord to take us out of here. The Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a hindrance to their Kingdom Dominion Theology. They think they are going to rule the world and are expecting to become "Manifest Sons of God" at any moment. They will actually call this manifestation the Rapture and use language that completely skirts the truth.
These five areas of departure from truth shows how close we are to the Antichrist religion of the Seven Years of the Great Tribulation. It's amazing that all five of these dark teachings fit perfectly with the Catholic world. Much of the present day Catholic church has joined hand-to-hand with Paul Crouch, Benny Hinn, and other key evangelical leaders. That proves the absolute heresy of the present departure from the Word of God. I often hear people say that Jesus cannot return until the church goes back to the glory of the Book of Acts. That is a totally misleading statement. Jesus said the opposite. "I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8). Apostle Paul stated, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" (II Thessalonians 2:3). Peter stated, "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape" (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
It's getting worse, not better. We are not going to ride with the Antichrist across the land, but with the Son of God down from above to defeat the Antichrist and establish the long awaited Millennial Kingdom on earth.Joseph R. Chambers
