JESUS CHRIST SAYS-- "I am the light of the world: He that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
JESUS CHRIST CAME to this earth PREACHING "-- The Gospel of the Kingdom of God. " The Gospel of the Kingdom of God establishes the light, and identifies the darkness, and introduces to mankind the light of life, which is spiritual information that will allumanate to give understanding and purpose about man's life on this earth. There is so much darkness in the world today, because of Satan and all of his churches, including today's professing Christianity and their false gospels, that the true light of Jesus Christ has a difficult time shining through, to light the lives of people desiring to be saved, and receiving eternal life, and because of all this darkness, Christ says, "Narrow and strait is the gate leading to life, and few there be that find it," Mat.7:14-15. Satan and his false ministers of light, II Cor. 11:15, have the whole world deceived, Rev. 12:9, and especially concerning the teaching as to what is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, and it all pertains how a person can receive salvation and eternal life in God's kingdom.
II Cor. 11:14-15--"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. -Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. Rev. 12:9--And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
WHAT IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Jesus Christ said to His disciples that the Mystery of the Kingdom of God was given to them, Mat. 13:11. What is that Mystery? "God's secret (mystery) is with the righteous," Pro. 3:32. Who are the righteous? Satan from the beginning of man, created a mystery and darkness about how man becomes righteous, and how he receives eternal life, Gen. 3:2-5. How, by seducing woman and man to eat from a different tree - the tree of the knowledge of good and evil - rather than the tree God gave to man to eat from, the tree of life, the tree that can light the path of life for man. Man must desire to be righteous, to become righteous, in order to understand the mystery of life, and the mystery of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, which all comes from man's desire to eat from the tree of life, Gen.3:22. Righteous man is the state of man's heart and mind produced by man's obedience to god's law given in his commandments and receiving forgiveness of his sins by accepting Jesus Christ's shed blood and broken body sacrifice. Satan has all his churches and people believing no one can become righteous, and no one can keep God's commandments, even with the power of God's Spirit, by denying the promise of God's great Power and gift of His Holy Spirit to help man to do so.
The Mystery, or secret of the Kingdom of God, is understanding what is the Gospel - that being the good news of Jesus Christ and the message of Jesus Christ about His sinless life on earth, His death in a blood letting sacrifice, after 3 days and 3 nights in the grave was ressurected, to go to His Father, to be accepted by the Father as man's Savior. The Gospel of the Kingdom is about Jesus Christ - His Life, His Death and His Resurrection as it relates to the saving of man. Man can only understand this mystery, if he is repentant of rebelling against all of God's commandments, and accepts Christ with His good news message. This Gospel message provides the only WAY for the saving of man from his sins, and death, and gaining eternal life in God's Kingdom. There is no other door or way to attain or receive salvation. All other doors or paths are exercises in futility, Mat. 15:1-15.
The focus of the Gospel is about Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as Savior God, who has come, and is still coming in the flesh with His life saving message. God, the Father, so loved the world that He was willing to give up His Son to the hands of evil men for His Son's death and the shedding of His blood to pay the sin debt, of man's transgression of God's 10 Commandments, so that sinful man could be saved, if he would repent of breaking God's law, and in faith accept His Son's great sacrifice to cover his sins. Jesus Christ, God's Son, was willing because of His love for man, to come to this earth and fulfill His Father's will by laying down His life to save repentant man. After Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension to heaven and being accepted by God the Father as fulfilling His will, Christ sent help and encouragement through the power of His Holy Spirit, to every person who will repent and accept the true Jesus Christ of Scripture. This power in a person can help him obey God's commandments, help him bear the fruit of love by fulfilling all of the new covenant of Jesus Christ by having those 10 commandments written in man's heart and mind through the power of God's Spirit. This power in man will help him bear all of the good fruit of God's Spirit, Gal. 5:22-25 and will help him endure to the end, by helping him to overcome his sins, and all its temptations by resisting Satan's and the world's sin enticements, which draws man into sin. By this great action of love and favor upon man by God the Father and Jesus Christ, repentant man can receive God's grace, His mercy, His Holy Spirit and salvation, and live for ever in God's Kingdom. This is the mystery of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. This is the light of life that exposes the darkness and can overcome the darkness.
All that Jesus Christ and His apostles taught pertained to this Gospel. Most of them were killed over this Gospel and the preaching of this Gospel.
There are two perverted Gospels that are widely known and preached around the world today as the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. One of the perverted gospels is really another gospel that teaches the gospel to be the "coming" kingdom of God, that stresses and focuses its gospel message on God's coming government, or Kingdom and in its teaching, stresses church government under a church hierarchy, that its members must submit to in order to be saved. This is adding another Gospel to the message of Jesus Christ. And the other perverted gospel is a gospel about a false Christ, that has done away with the commandments and who now is worshiped and accepted in today's Christianity, that totally mis-represents the true Christ of the Bible and His Gospel message. This is a gospel that has taken away the true gospel of Jesus Christ and teaches another. All of this is a terrible slap in the Father's and Son's face, and a terrible affront to Them when anyone preaches another gospel along with another Christ. After all that they did--the Father giving up of His only begotten Son, and the Son willing to give His life in torture, pain, suffering, flesh mutilation and a blood letting crucifixion, all for the saving of man, and then for churches and ministers to put this true Gospel message in the background, and then preach something else as the Gospel, Gal.1:6-12, is very sad, shameful and deceiving indeed, Heb.10:29, and headed for the damnation of hell if there is no deep repentance. This false teaching leads people away from eternal life just as Pharisees were doing in Christ's day and he told them that they were headed for the damnation of hell, Mat 23:13,33. Will today's false professing Christian ministers receive any less punishment? If they don't repent, they will receive the same punishment.
These perverted gospels and messages are focused either on----the coming kingdom or government of God as the heart and core of its teaching as the gospel, with salvation determined by submission to its church government, or else a perverted gospel that teaches a false Christ salvation, as it is in today's accepted "professed Christianity." In both cases, the sin of IDOLATRY- worshiping a created idol, or the sin of ADULTERY- breaking or adulterating Christ new covenant, and FORNICATION - fornicating with a false spiritual church woman are all sins committed by following these deceiving false gospels. In one case a false Christ image is created in their worship by preaching that any one can just confess Christ without any real conversion, real repentance, or change that would produce a new spiritual birth. In the other case, an IDOL is made of the ministry, its organization and its hierarchy, and all attention is directed to the flesh of men instead of to Jesus Christ. In both cases, there is very little or no spiritual change of heart that brings about true conversion, that would produce a new spiritual birth, to be born again now which Christ requires of all who desire to be in His kingdom, John 3:3, 5.
---Except a man be born again (beginning a new life begotten of God's SPIRIT) he cannot see (understand, perceive or know spiritually about ) the kingdom of God, John 3:3.
Each member of these churches obeys God's law-His 10 Commandments as he and his man leadership (hierarchy) interprets God's law, and as it is pleasing in their own eyes and lust, and not as God's word commands, and he thereby commits idolatry, fornication, adultery, lies and deception, stealing and misusing God's tithes and breaking the Sabbath, and all other such sins. Church people committing these sins and all such sins, cannot inherit God's Kingdom, I Cor. 6:9-10, Gal. 5:19-21.These are false messages and false gospels in every sense of God's Word, that greatly hinders and brings confusion against the true work of Jesus Christ and against His little ones desiring true spiritual food. These gospels are not the LIGHT of JESUS CHRIST, but more darkness unto an already dark world!!
The Gospel of the "Coming Kingdom of God"is really a gospel of the kingdom of the church and its church government control over its members and is not Christ's Gospel message.
This church government Gospel (church government salvation), that stresses salvation comes as one submits to their church government hierarchy, is a Gospel that focuses on the coming Kingdom of God. This is a mis-focused Gospel because it focuses the good news on a future event of the worldwide or global rule of God, and is not the true Gospel message about Christ and man's salvation, that man in his sinful condition can relate to as being a good news message to man, and his life here and now. The fact and truth about a gospel that focuses on God's coming Kingdom coming to the earth is teaching news about Christ first bringing judgment and destruction and death upon sinning man, and that is not good news of salvation but bad news to every sinner. Where are the words in the Bible that says, "Christ came preaching the Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God," or "the Gospel of the coming government of God?" They are not in Jesus Christ's and the apostle's teaching as being the Gospel.
Yet, there are churches of God today who teach that the focus of Christ's Gospel is "the coming Kingdom of God," and that its members must totally submit to its church government structure now, in order to be in God's Kingdom to come. It is true, God's Kingdom is coming to this earth and Christ's Word speaks of it in a number of places, but it will come only when "Christ has put down all rule and all authority and power of men and bring judgment upon all sinners," I Cor. 15:24. This will also include all church rule and power, that rule with a central or hierarchical-authority and power over men's lives and salvation, and taking dominion over God's little ones, who are Christ's called and chosen ones, not man's little ones. This Gospel that is taught today as "the coming Kingdom of God," is not the Gospel Jesus and His apostles taught, but a twisting and perverting of His true Gospel, and is another gospel, a Gospel of men, Gal. 1:11.
This perverted gospel directs a believer's or church's attention of worship toward a man and man's church government, with man's power and authority of his hierarchy, and not to Christ, and thereby creating idolatry, causing people to sin (worship of man or organizational power) within the church. Paul said, "If I seek to please men, I should not be a servant of Jesus Christ," Gal. 1:10. How does this central or organizational power and authority come about? It is by the power and authority granted to that man-minister by his church appointed hierarchy, and by the will and support of the church membership, and not by Jesus Christ, Mat. 20:25-27. But some will argue, doesn't God's Word in Heb. 13:7, 17, say "Obey them that have the rule over you?"
The Greek word for rule (s-2233) in Heb. 13:7, 17 is not the same Gr. word rule (s-746) as used in I Cor. 15:24, the rule and authority that Christ will put down. The Greek word for rule in Heb. 13 means, TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE--TO PASTOR, as AN OVERSEER, and COMMAND AND TEACH HIS WORD WITH THE AUTHORITY OF CHRIST and HIS WORD (not the authority of a church hierarchy). TO BE CHIEF IS AS IN SERVING, AND BE ACCOUNTABLE TO CHRIST, POINTING PEOPLE TO CHRIST. Christ said, "To be great or chief is to be a servant," Mat. 20:27. A different Greek word was inspired to be used but translated as rule in I Cor. 15:24, ( a rule which Christ will put down) means to rule by BEING CHIEF IN RANK, ORDER, ELEVATED OFFICE OR POWER: TO REIGN TO HAVE DOMINION OVER, such as, the example set by churches today that rule by a church government, of a hierarchical order, or a central authority, which is the fruit of their perverted gospel-church government teaching, that teaches salvation comes through submission to their church government. This is not the meaning of Christ teaching in Mat. 20:27.
This is not the government of Jesus Christ, or is it the teaching of the Gospel that Christ taught. The Gospel Christ taught is: CHRIST is to be the HEAD of each Saint, and HE is to LEAD and GOVERN them by HIS indwelling and enabling HOLY SPIRIT, Eph.3:14-17, Eph. 5:21-24. Jesus Christ desires to live in each saint through His Spirit of power. God's power that convicts, leads, and guides, is given to each repentant sinner through Jesus Christ and His grace, and not through some church government of a hierarchical order, I John 2:27.
I John 2:27 But the anointing (God's Holy Spirit) which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him." This is the power of leadership that should abide in all of His Saints.
This church-government, gospel teaching of rank, order, and elevated office of authority and power, are not the spiritual gifts of service of I Cor.12:1-31, proclaimed to be offices of rank and order, which are really of Satan and his world of governoring the nations of the world, and is "another gospel"--a perverted gospel, that when Christ returns "HE-Christ shall have put down as His Word says---ALL rule and ALL authority and power," I Cor. 15:24. Read it, study it , understand it, and ask yourself DO I UNDERSTAND that JESUS CHRIST (not man) IS THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE, AND HE AND HIS MESSAGE IS THE MYSTERY OF THE GOSPEL. Christ and His message is about His LOVE, HIS GRACE, and HIS SALVATION for man. Is CHRIST living in you, GUIDING and LEADING you by His SPIRIT, or is man through his church government, and the fear of being cast out of his-man's church, and losing your church government salvation? Christ says in His Word, "If any man or church preaches any other Gospel, let him be cursed," Gal. 1:8-9. Can a CHURCH MEMBER OF ANY CHURCH HIERARCHY that supports such WORK with his membership and tithes, expect to receive any less punishment than those church leaders, who teach such at Christ's coming and judgment on the earth? Read of Christ's punishment for servants knowing, but not doing His will, Luke 12:47
Another widely taught perverted Gospel accepts another Christ
This false Christ Gospel of accepting another Christ, is a widely taught, perverted Gospel, and is not the mystery of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, but a mystery of deception and darkness. This perverted gospel is the teaching of "ANOTHER Gospel," about "another Christ" that came to die for everyone's sins, but sins defined as sins by one's own opinion and knowledge, as from the knowledge of the tree of good and evil, but not sins that are the breaking of God's Ten Commandments, and identified as sins from God's Word when broken, I John 3:4, James 2:8-12. This perverted Gospel is a message about a false Christ, that is spread around the world, that corrupts and makes the mystery of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God very difficult to solve, to know and to understand, because of this false Gospel, and its earth circling, influence of deception and darkness through today's false teaching missionaries.
This false "Christ" -another Jesus teaching, and church created, image worship, requires none of his followers to have to acknowledge, confess and repent of sins identified as the transgressions of all of God's Ten Commandments, for all of which Christ died, in order to be forgiven and justified for acceptance by the Christ of the Bible for salvation. This false Christ worship rejects the true Christ of God's Word!
This false Christ, worship produces a FALSE grace that gives its followers permission to sin, and to continue in sin because the preachers of today's Christianity teach and believe that Christ's perfect obedience to the law gives them liberty or freedom to not have to obey all of God's 10 commandments. This perverts the Gospel message of true spiritual conversion, and is not the Gospel and grace that Christ and the Apostles taught. This perverted gospel and false grace compromises God's law, and the judgment for sin. This false teaching gives in to the flesh and all its desires, and by its belief, creates and worships a "false Christ." "Professed Christians" of churches in great numbers around the world worship this same "false Christ." This "false Christ" varies very little from one church to another because they all preach a perverted gospel-another gospel-another Jesus, that did not die for people's transgression of God's 10 commandments, all professing they have the spirit and grace of their "Christ," and without doubt they do, but it is a false spirit and false grace. Again, this is an affront, a slap in the face, an insult to God the Father, and Jesus Christ, for professed churches and ministers who have trodden under foot the life saving blood of Jesus, and done despite unto the Spirit of His Grace, by accepting a "false gospel" through a "false Christ," Heb.10:29. The liberty in Jesus Christ is to them, having freedom from the penalty of breaking God's 10 commandments, and it also means to them, freedom of not being required to having to be obedient to Christ's 10 commandments. This a terrible lie and abominable teaching out of Satan the devil, and greatly perverts the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This false understsanding of the true Gospel causes its followers to become what Jesus Christ calls "WORKERS of INIQUITY" that he will cast away, Mat. 7:23. Iniquity in the Greek means lawlessness, keeping no law. This describes fully today's teaching in all of the Sunday keeping churches. They are churches teaching iniquity.
Jesus Christ said there would be false preachers raising up these "false Christs," and if possible deceiving the very elect, Mat 24:24. Paul warned the church about perverting the Gospel -- and said, "If we or even an angel from heaven preach another-perverted gospel, let him be accursed," Gal.1:7-10. Where do you stand in all this confusion? Are you following a perverted gospel, and advancing through your offerings the evil work of it? Do you really know what is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and do you understand this mystery of the Kingdom of God? Remember, Satan also appears as a messenger of light through his ministers, II Cor. 11:14-15. Are you sure of what light it is that lights your life, is it the light of Jesus Christ, or the deceiving darkness appearing as light, of Satan the devil?
These two perverted Gospels are widely preached around the world by today's "professed Christianity," and are twisted, mis-focused Gospels, that corrupt and mis-directs the true heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the entering of His Kingdom. Woe and cursed be all ministers and churches having a part in this evil work of Satan, which many call doing "God's work," that mis-focuses and perverts the Gospel of Christ for salvation, to inherit the Kingdom of God. These two perverted gospels are not the light of life that Jesus Christ brought to the world, but more darkness and presented as light, II Cor. 11: 14-15. Satan and his ministers really do appear as messengers of light. Do you really know the difference between ministers of the light of Christ and the ministers of Satan, appearing as the light? If you are not studying your Bible and proving all things and rejecting your life of rebelling against God and His commandments, by submitting to the pulls and leadership of the flesh, you cannot know the difference and will continue in the darkness, headed for the judgment of Jesus Christ where He says in Mat. 7:23 "And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you depart from me, you that work iniquity.."
Jesus Christ says in John 12:46,48--- "I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes on Me should not abide in darkness. He that rejects Me and receives not My Words, has one that judges him: the WORD that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day."
