For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes. Therefore whoever eats this bread and drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. I Corinthians 12:26,27
You probably thought that the celebration of the Mass was just for Catholics, but in light of this year's Easter fiasco involving millions of evangelical churches I thought I would enlighten you on the celebration of the evangelical mass: Mass confusion, mass pollution and mass delusion.
Bobble headed Jesus, free 50" TVs, baseball tickets, Easter egg hunts, trips to Disney land, not to mention La La land, picnics, gift certificates, Nintendo video games, and a barrage of media to compel the poor lost, white, middle class, potential tithing, future member to fill their sanctuaries.
Man, who wouldn't want to come and attend this mass of evangelical madness, after all it's in the name of Jesus isn't it? Who knows, lets just grab the stuff, join the club and show up to party down with this bunch of wild and crazy evangelical fanatics.
Throw out the cross and the gory stuff, forget the resurrection and that narrow road deal and lets party hard for Jesus, after all He took care of everything for us so all we have to do is show up, shut up and write a check to cover the party favors!
The city of confusion is broken down; every house is shut up, so that none may go in. Isaiah 24:10
Contrary to popular belief the Catholic Mass performed daily around the world is not a Christian sacrament, nor is it communion as most tend to believe; but in actuality it is an abomination to God and to the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Note: The ceremony of Mass is called transubstantiation, the ability for the priest to bring down Jesus from Heaven and sacrifice Him again, turning Him into the host or wafer commonly know as the Eucharist. Thus the unsuspecting participant is eating the flesh of Christ Himself. In other words Jesus is offered up every time this is given as a sacrifice to atone for man's sin.
On the other hand the evangelical communion in most cases is taken in an unworthy manner because of our worship of God and our blatant disobedience to His word. Taking communion with the bread and wine is only part of our worship of God, our life is a living sacrifice given wholly into His service. Communion and fellowship mean the same and cannot be separated.
Confusion is a violation of nature and and the divine order and is likened to having sex with animals in God's eyes. It also means to mix, mingle or confuse, to mix oneself with others, such as unbelievers and includes sexual perversion and incest.
For God is not the author of confusion (disorder) but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. I Corinthians 14:33
Because evangelical Christianity has spread it's legs to the masses and disobeyed God's word warning not to be yoked together with unbelievers, confusion and disorder have entered the assembly of the righteous spawning selfish ambition, pride, greed and envy.
The mega-church mentality has created delusions of grandeur in the minds of once humble servants of God seeking notoriety, fame and fortune, turning their ears away from the truth to walk in deception and lies they have gone astray wanting the approval of man rather than the approval of God.
But if you have bitter envy and self- seeking (selfish ambition) in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual and demonic. For where envy and self- seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. James 3:14-16
You have polluted the land with your harlotry's and your wickedness. Therefore the showers have been withheld, and there has been no latter rain. You have a harlots forehead; you refuse to be ashamed. Jeremiah 3:2,3
Pollution is defined as profaneness, hypocrisy and godlessness and comes from a root word that means to be defiled and corrupt. To be profane is to treat something sacred with irreverence and contempt.
A whore spreads her legs to anyone for money and what the modern day consumer driven crowd is doing is the same thing. Jeremiah says that the showers have been withheld meaning the Holy Spirit has been grieved away because no one takes this to heart, in that the "Body of Christ" is sacred to God.
To pollute something pure is to add something to it that is defiled or profane and to fling open the doors of God's holy temple (us) and invite the world in is like making love to your wife and inviting the neighborhood into your bedroom to watch! Our fellowship and communion with God and one another is holy to Him and was never meant to have unbelievers enter.
Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty for it was perfect through my splendor which I had bestowed on you, says the Lord God. But you trusted in your own beauty, played the harlot because of your fame, and poured out your harlotry on everyone passing by who would have it. Ezekiel 16:14,15
The body of Christ represents the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth and is to be pure and holy without spot or wrinkle adorned with the gifts of Heaven and anointed with the Holy Spirit and she is a beautiful sight to behold. But the bride because of her beauty has gone a whoring after fame and fortune seeking the world's approval.
Superstar preachers and prophets have filled mega churches and sold billions in self help books and all sorts of products making the church of the living God into a den of thieves and a house of merchandise. From jewel encrusted crosses to water from the river Jordan its all for sale with the promise of a blessing if you purchase it.
Signs, wonders and miracles are available too, attracting thousands to ooh and ah over their exploits performing for the crowds like magicians they seduce the unsuspecting with their sorcery's promising healing and prosperity to anyone who will give into their ministry. Because of this blatant profaning of God's holy word and will for His people the whole purpose for His body has been polluted.
"How degenerate is your heart!" says the Lord, "seeing you do all these things, the deeds of a brazen harlot. "You erected your shrine at the head of every road, and built your high place in every street. Yet you were nor like a harlot, because you scorned payment.
You are an adulterous wife, who takes strangers instead of her husband. "Men make payments to all harlots, but you made your payments to all your lovers, and hired them to come to you from all around for your harlotry." Ezekiel 16:30-33
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie. II Thessalonians 2:9-11
Delusion means a wandering or straying about, or to be led astray from the right way, it also means deceit or deception. Jesus warned us to beware of wolves in sheep's clothing and to walk the narrow road, led by the Holy Spirit illuminating our path by His word.
The word of God is our road map, the instruction manual for life and the light that guides us through our journey back to God. Because of a great defection prophesied in these last days the narrow road has been made broad by false prophets and shepherds that are leading God's people into darkness.
Now the Spirit explicitly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. I Timothy 4:1
There is a great falling away from true Christian faith in God. Because of science and medicine, electronic gadgets of all kinds, and a media blitz that has stolen the hearts and minds of millions, people just don't trust God anymore, and whats even worse they are taught by their peers and fellow church members not to.
Dr. Drew, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, not to mention the queen of the "self help gurus:" Oprah, has stolen the hearts of many believers, trusting in their counsel and taking their remedies for every malady that plaques mankind, why with all this intelligence, we don't need God anymore, He has become obsolete!
The word of the living God has been tossed aside like so much rubbish, outdated and not relevant for our sophisticated new age lifestyles and it has become nothing more than a dead and lifeless history book. Another divine comedy to be made fun of and mocked for ever believing in such miraculous deeds done by the Lord Jesus Christ and men sold out for the faith, willing to die for what they believed.
The winds of judgment are blowing and the end of all things are upon us as the prophets of old warned! This is a time for the remnant of the true body of Christ to arise from her slumber and take authority over this religious nonsense, and preach the un-compromised word of the living God to a lost and dying world! Remember, delusion is given by God and can only be removed by true godly sorrow and repentance. May God have mercy on us all!
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God. And they will be my people."Therefore, "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you." I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters says the Lord Almighty." II Corinthians 6:14-18
