Test the Spirits.

Listeners to Christian teachers and ministers need to carefully test the spirits to see if the teachers or ministers are preaching and practicing the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ, and not another Jesus with a false message, and false hope.

Why do so many people immediately assume that it is a real pastor, teacher or prophetess in the church they attend? Is it because there is a sign out the front saying the place is a Christian church? Is it because the man or woman has studied at a man-made Bible College and they have a certificate saying they are an apostle, prophet, prophetess, pastor, teacher or evangelist? Do not expect everything in this world to truly be what it says it is, nor everyone to truly be who they say they are.

Even if a real prophetess was teaching in a church, bear in mind, that in the true church of Lord Jesus Christ, women are not permitted to teach or have authority over men anyhow. Women are not to lead a local church.

Joyce Meyer (Ministries) and other female charlatans lack essential knowledge, and they are not led by the Holy Spirit to preach, or teach Lord Jesus' doctrine. They are not teachers, prophetesses, or pastors of Jesus Christ's church. However, these women are popular members of the church of the world, corrupted Christendom. They are rich in this world's goods, yet they are not rich in the eyes  of God/Jesus the Christ.

God's eyes scan to and fro throughout the whole earth. He is keeping check on who is loyal to Him; those who still obey His doctrine, and do not follow doctrines that kick against the true gospel.

Matthew 7:13-20, 1 John 4:1, 1 Timothy 2:11-14, 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, Luke 12:16-21, Zechariah 4:10.

Now Christendom has been corrupted for quite some time; it is only getting worse. Do not share in its sins. If you are part of Christendom, get out of this worldly sinful church, which preaches, teaches, promotes and practices covetousness and false and hypocritical doctrine. The majority of churches practice these and other known sins, which Lord Jesus has warned them about.

If you are part of a corrupted Christendom church, you share in its sins, and if you do not get away from them you will be condemned to hell with those people  living in known, un-repented sins.....2 John 9-11.

If you are a member of the Roman Catholic Church, Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth (Revelation 17:5), and you are at an age of freedom of choice to immediately stop attending that church, but you do not leave there, you will eventually share in its sins, and then be condemned to hell with it.

Also, if you or your church are part of the ecumenical movement, and you join and remain with the Roman Catholic Church, which I believe to be the mother of an emerging One World Church, you will eventually share its sins, and be condemned to hell with it.

It is believed that the One World Ecumenical Church will fully come together as a mixture of hypocritical and false doctrines and practices of multi so-called faiths. If you are part and remain part of such a church, you would also eventually share in its sins, and be condemned to hell with it.

Therefore: "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues, "For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities (ref: Revelation 18:4, 5). 2 Corinthians 6: 14-18, Revelation 17, 18.

Come away from all the cults, individual deceivers and all lying denominational or non-denominational churches of corrupted Christendom because they are not the true church of Lord Jesus Christ. They are churches of the world , and people cannot be saved from hell fire eternal if they remain in any of these churches.

Today, we are left with only a remnant, a few good people, a small percentage of people loyal to Lord Jesus, while most churches in the world do not belong to Lord Jesus' church, but are in agreement with Satan and his kingdom, the world, Romans 9:27-29, Matthew 24:35-44.

The Lord Jesus will return to this earth (upon the clouds) and take His loyal followers to heaven with Him, away from the wrath and horrible period of end time tribulation that will occur on this earth.

Right now, we are all in the last days on earth, Lord Jesus' people must be diligent to present themselves approved to Him by continually listening to Him, which they should do daily, and keep His commandments. They should always be ready for the certain upcoming return of Lord Jesus at a time they do not expect. They need to be found with a clean heart, free of un-repented known sin.

All unrighteousness is sin, so Lord Jesus' people must stay away from every form of evil, and continue learning from their Lord throughout their lives. Some time after Christians purposely allow the Holy Spirit to lead, and speak to their consciences, they are able to discern the difference between good and evil things.

The Holy Spirit dwells in the Lord Jesus' people, informing them of whether something is good or evil that they may do what pleases God. But Lord Jesus' people must obey the leading of the Spirit by carefully listening to His leading. If a person does not have the Spirit of Christ Jesus inside of them, they are not one of His people (ref: Romans 8:9).

Be sensitive to conscience; listen to what the Spirit of God is telling you. Also, listen to what the Spirit says to the true church through His anointed minister(s).

God/Lord Jesus actually fights against disobedient corrupt churches with the sword of His mouth, His words (ref: Revelation 2:16). Any groups or individuals inside or outside the church will be condemned if they continue disobeying Lord Jesus' words.

If you attend church services, test its teachings so that you will know if it is the teaching of the only true God, Lord Jesus, or if it is another teaching, and not the truth. Revelation 2:7, 2 Corinthians 11:2-4.
