This Letter Has Been Written to Challenge the Traditional Christian
By Samuel Marcus Brown
I was raised in a traditional Christian home and have attended the traditional Christian church most of my life; I've always heard about the "Anti-Christ" and that the Anti-Christ will come as an individual man who will be manifested as the great deceptive leader of the world that will reign 3.5 years before the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ certainly did not return on May 21st 2011 as recently prophesied.
Traditional Christian folk have speculated for many years of whom they predicted to be that great deceiver who is to come. Popular secular leaders from Adolf Hitler (absolutely one of the worst) to President George W. Bush and more recently President Barack Obama has been chosen, prophesied (prophelied) by many in the Traditional Christian world as the chief candidate for that damnable position. Traditional Religious folk will continue to make costly errors with their interpretation of scripture; turning people off from getting to personally know how great, loving and just our God is through his son Jesus Christ.
The definition of "anti" is to be opposed to something or expressing or holding an opposing view, especially with regard to a political issue or moral principle.
Recently I had a personal profound revelation concerning what is now actually happening in the world; physically and spiritually... I briefly mentioned this epiphany in my previous post;
I declared that:
"America is changing for the better in many different aspects"... "The bigots are starting to lose in all areas of life... there's a spiritual shift going on in the world right now..."
The traditional evangelical, pentecostal, holiness "charismatic" church has been prophesying and predicting a shaking and a shifting in the church world for many years now... the true part about that prediction is that it is really happening; but not so much along the lines of their anticipated, cynical condemning message that demonizes and announces doom and gloom toward same gender loving people who didn't have a choice regarding their sexuality.
Let's talk about this "shaking" that is going-on in the church world... the irony is that "this shaking" it is the very core foundation of biblical truth and reality that is being "shook" concerning the very disparaging message of condemnation to the many same gender loving congregants of these church institutions. Mega church pastors and religious leaders world wide are being called out on their traditional doctrine of "holiness". Their feet is being held to the fire that is burning away the hypocrisy of spewing vitriol from the pulpit toward same gender loving people; some are living a double life of those that they condemn.
Some people are starting to read and understand the word of God within it's proper context and direction; some have stopped listening only to their pastors and the religious community who thrives on clinging-on to the unjust, anti-Christ tradition in the name of holiness. Holiness is living a life of spirit led truth and peace; not some form of religion that postulate and pontificates a battered soul into judgmental submission.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Jesus Christ; he is also the reason and the meaning of why Christianity exists. Did he not determine and define what is considered sin? It amazes me of why and how could a body of believers who are followers of Jesus Christ actually read and interpret the holy scriptures within its proper context; regarding the scriptures that have been misused and misinterpreted so badly on the subject matter of homosexuality or same gender loving people and then declare that they have discovered such a Rhema word in so many different other areas of ministry but they have willfully failed to ascertain a Rhema word on sexuality. Rhema (ῥῆμα in Greek) literally means an "utterance" or "thing said" in Greek. It is a word that signifies the action of utterance. In Christianity, it is used in reference to the concept of Rhematos Christou; Jesus Christ's sayings.
Was Jesus Christ the Son of God aware of God fearing people who were born naturally with spiritual, mental and physical emotions for the same gender? Matthew 19:12 KJV (The words of Jesus) For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. What are eunuchs? http://www.well.com/user/aquarius/contents.htm An interesting study by Faris Malik.
If the body of Christ were to share complete bible truths within it's proper context and leave out the traditional (anti-Christ) disguise and coloration that has blanketed the body of Christ (the church) with the sensationalized historic sexual acts that specifically displayed the rampant orgy and idol worship from a sect of heterosexual people who whole-heartedly and purposefully turned their backs on God and their sexuality to worship an idol god; so God abandoned them for choosing to worship an idol god in Romans 1st chapter KJV.
If the church were to continue with bible truth in its proper context then one would see that 1st Corinthians 6:9 KJV spoke to male prostitutes; the scriptural examples does not speak to same gender love, innate sexuality or gay people.
Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as thyself .
Contrary to popular religious belief; it is a very dangerous and an unloving practice to use the bible to lead a young man or young woman to live a life of "concerted deception" based on man made religion and personal traditional ideology. Concerted deception (for this subject matter) is when a person decides to live their life and make personal choices for their life that is contrary to their God-given innate sexuality in order to please family and church society and then claim "deliverance". Man made traditional religion and personal ideology has lead many in the body of Christ in to mental and spiritual anguish in trying to change something that God has never asked anyone to change. The body of Christ (church) has inflicted some of the most subversive, anti-Christ behaviors on many of God's same gender loving children and they are responsible for hurting and damaging many of those souls.
Before you revert back to the old testament verses in Leviticus chapter 20 & chapter 18 and the infamous story of Sodom & Gomorrah in Genesis chapter 19 as a means of justification for assigning your personal prejudice and bigotry to the sovereign God; I beseech you to actually read those entire chapters word for word in the King James Version of the bible and understand them in their proper context; it was man made religious doctrine (the letter) that tainted the world with divisions, denominations, homophobia, racism, sexism and bunch of other whodo to satisfy their judgmental egos of hierarchy; undermining and disrespecting the sacrifice and accomplishments of Jesus the Christ to persecute others by inflicting pain to others in God's name. 2nd Corinthians 3:6 KJV Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
It would "behoove" the Traditional Christian Church World to self evaluate before looking outside of Christendom for that great deceiver who is to come as the "Anti-Christ".
Matthew 24:23 KJV Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
