|Isaiah 24:5 |
5 The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, and broken the everlasting covenant.1 [They have made grace a license for immorality; they have made the blood of Jesus an unholy thing, an excuse for continuing in sin and ignoring all laws; they have transgressed the law and broken the covenant. From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. For half of Christianity the blood will be disastrous. They would have no laws. The new law became unrighteousness. The covenant of the Lord is a breakage of the people." Those of you who think the blood of Jesus excuses your past, present, and future sins; you have broken the covenant of the Lord, you have made his blood evil and unholy, and you have shown contempt for the Spirit of grace.]
1 The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, and broken the everlasting covenant. We can easily see that the earth is defiled, filled with evil, filled with men pursuing their selfish lusts and pride. We can easily see that even Christendom is filled with transgressors of the law, people who still sin. Christendom follows ordinances created by men: infant baptism, water baptism, bread and wine as a ritual, confession, penance, last rites, hundreds of laws passed by the Roman sect called papal bulls, and Protestant-defined grace that excuses all past, present, and future sins.
From the Word of the Lord within: "Man with all his ordinances never saw the light of God."
All the sects have broken the everlasting covenant, who is Jesus Christ, whose blood is intended to give us access to heart-and-soul-purifying grace, but instead grace has been turned into a license for immorality — his blood is used to live a life of sin without fear of God, with the false promise of heaven after death. So the covenant and his blood have been trampled under the lies of depraved men, who in effect promote and excuse sin:
How much more severe a punishment, do you suppose, will be thought worthy for one who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has acted with spite [contempt] to the Spirit of grace? Heb 10:29.
The false church has made the blood of Jesus an excuse for evil, and therefore they have made his blood and unholy thing; and so they trample on Jesus and show contempt for grace.
Jesus told us six times we must deny ourselves and pick up our cross daily to follow him; then he died a horrible death on the cross to show us the extent of obedience required; but the sects have ignored the cross, ignored repentance, ignored the fear of God, ignored purifying grace, ignored the requirements of holiness. Instead, the sects of Christendom have adulterated with the world, licensing their followers in the pursuit of greed, wealth, possessions, immorality, pride, covetousness, anger, envy, drunkenness, revelry — everything that is clearly stated in the scriptures as tickets to Hell. The sects have gutted all the teachings of Jesus and have made the Bible hollow, creating their own concept of Jesus from the tiny subset of scriptures they choose to worship.
The blind guides of Christendom have defined a horribly evil, unfair, unjust God, who judges sinners who believe in Jesus with a completely different standard than all the other people of the earth. And so, the names of Jesus and God are blasphemed by the peoples of the earth.
From the Word of the Lord within:
Following the doctrines of Christianity's merchants of death, masquerading as Christ's ministers, you can be a repeat murderer, a full-time thief, a habitual adulterer, a child rapist, a chronic liar, cheating your neighbor, hating your mother and father, and still be a Christian as long as you believe in Jesus. Is it any wonder why Christianity is held is such contempt today? Christianity has cast the law behind their backs, calling evil good, calling the wicked righteous, while totally ignoring the Bible's many stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation. (Click on each of these exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions to read them for yourselves; they are undeniable and clearly show that Christendom is a hollow shell of the original Christianity of the Apostles and the Bible, substituting pagan ritual, ceremony, and theater, instead of the cross, purity, cleanliness, righteousness, and holiness.)
Christianity has turned into Babylon, just as the Bible predicted. Jesus said the false prophets in sheep's clothing would come. John said the antichrists and false apostles had come and had gone out from among them. Peter saw the false teachers had come. Paul saw the false apostles had come, and warned the brothers night and day for three years of more coming. And in Revelation, John saw where the whole world was to go after the false prophets and the false church, which occurred shortly afterwards. The false church is Revelation's whore of Babylon, riding the beast of many names [41,000 sects in Christendom], with horns like a lamb [resembles the true church], but who speaks like a dragon [men speaking from their carnal minds, which is enmity with God, and their vain opinions from their evil imaginations] instead of speaking words supplied by the Holy Spirit, as Jesus and the Apostles did. From the word of the Lord within: "the earth has no love of God and no common sense."
