1. Jesus Christ took away the First, established the Second

"Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." God is the person, who has created heaven and earth. "Ephesians 3:9 says that God, created all things by Jesus Christ:" The Lord Jesus Christ is God of the whole world, since he is the creator of the universe. "John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,..." So, Jesus Christ was one with God as 'God the Word'. Then he became flesh and became a mere man. "Hebrews 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." So, Jesus became a man to do the will of God the Father. It was to take away the first, and to establish the second. What was the first? It was the repeated animal sacrifice and the priesthood. What is the second? Jesus Christ was the only sacrifice for one-time forgiveness, and Jesus Christ became the only High Priest for every person. The entire fifth chapter of Hebrews, explains how Jesus Christ has removed the animal sacrifice by sacrificing himself, how God made Jesus Christ as the only High Priest, and all other priesthood were removed. "Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec." So, Jesus Christ will save only those who obey him. As Almighty God, by his blood, Jesus Christ sanctifies and perfects all those who obey him. "Hebrews 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;" Now, those who are sanctified by the power of Jesus and perfected by his blood, will enter into the most holy place by living in the new way, that Jesus Christ showed us how to live, by living his life as a man. Further, now he is with us as God in the omnipotent and omnipresent Spirit, so that we may abide or live through his life. So, in the second system, all those who are sanctified and perfected can and will enter in the most holy place all the time. They will inherit the kingdom of God in eternity.

2. Roman Government, Jewish Temples, and Spiritual Christians.

Roman emperor Constantine was converted to be a Christian in February 313 AD and with the power of Roman government, Christianity became powerful. Religious Jews were outwardly godly people, but Jesus told them their father is the devil. Most of these children of the devil, used this opportunity and jumped in the band wagon as Christians. In the name of Christianity, these people brought the old kind of rituals, ceremonies, celebrations, and the type of priesthood back in Christianity. In 70 AD Romans had destroyed the Jerusalem temple, and these people build huge buildings for worship as churches. Previously, church meant the body of Christ, who were people, and now it became wonderful buildings. However, it happened a long time ago. Now, church leaders have established a religious church government, which is almost similar to the old system. As before these people have power and hierarchy. In the new system, masters must be as servants and they must have no hierarchy. Jesus Christ has removed the first system and established the second. But Romans and Jews ran churches as in the old system. They hijacked the name of Jesus Christ and the scriptures, for the use of religion. They ran the churches by the power of Roman government. As years went by, changes happened in the administration of churches; there were many divisions and denominations; still they run it for the last 1700 years. It is a long time. So, we became valid churches, and we represent the Lord Jesus Christ. But now churches are not Spiritual, we are religious, and we are not the body of Christ. This is the truth. But churches are thousand times better than gangs and rioters. So, we need churches. They satisfy psychological, emotional, social, and so many other needs. Society needs churches. But, know the truth, that they are fake or counterfeit, regarding to the things pertained to heaven, eternal life, and to the kingdom of God. Do not trust churches for your eternity.

3. Churches were Spiritual; but now they are of the Religion.

Jesus Christ is God of the whole world. We divide the world in two groups as Christians and non-Christians. But he divides the people of the world, as those who obey God, and those who do not obey God. Every adult is given conscience, laws of God, and freedom to live as they wish. Christians are given the written word of God also. The souls who obey God are good, and who do not obey God are evil. So, the good and the evil are the two groups according to God. In the new testament, God picks his people one by one as they obey him; but not as he chose the Jews. They were chosen from, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and all descendants. But now, God picks those, such as to be saved to be members of his church; they could be from families also. "Ephesians 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men." God gives two kinds of gifts to people. God gives grace to humble people, and he gives gifts of the Holy Ghost to do his work. This is one level. "11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" Then the Holy Ghost prepares people and anoints some as apostles, some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and sends them to the world, to preach and convert people and form churches with the groups of followers. The Holy Ghost also prepares some to be pastors and teachers and gives them to the churches. So, apostles, prophets, and evangelists formed churches; pastors and teachers nourished the churches. They will unite the churches in one faith, which is the faith in God; they teach them Jesus Christ, and also perfects them to be as Jesus Christ was perfect. This ministry is still being done by the Holy Ghost.

4. Word of God and the excitement of Churches in Bible study.

We have many denominations and churches, that branched out from the church that was run by Roman government, but not by God. Even now churches are under such administration. So, churches are religious, but not spiritual. They say, God, God; Jesus, Jesus; and so on, since they must do it for a show, to be at least religious. They preach sermons and teach bible. How do they do it? Preachers pick up one verse, use that verse to break or void another verse, use it to break or void another verse, and keep on doing it, until all the key verses in the bible are broken or void, or somehow destroyed. But at the same time, they will insert all their doctrines and clichés as genuine scripture verses, as God has showed them or taught them into their study, and make sure people make a note of them. Now you are holding the book with the cover 'the holy bible' and when you open and read it with the notes that you have added in it, you will not read the old bible anymore, but a deceptive another bible. The different versions are also printed in such a way to help you do that. It is all deception. They study this technique in theology schools. They do this in a very sleek and fun way, which are very entertaining. They are as entertaining as football, tennis, basketball, and such, and we have theologians and preachers as celebrity heroes. We will not mind making them rich. With that, our churches promise eternal life; but they will take us to hell. But they will keep us satisfied here fully.

5. Satan Comes as Another Jesus, False Christs, and Antichrists.

"2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." In this verse, another Jesus is Satan, who has deceived Adam and Eve. Apostle Paul has made you spouse or fixed to marry Jesus and intended to keep you as "chaste virgin" and says that he fears that Satan may corrupt that purity, which is sinless perfection. By subtle deception, Satan may bring you another Jesus, who will accept you not as a virgin, to entice you not to become or to stay pure. In that case Satan will bring another spirit, and another gospel with him. It will be total deception. So, any gospel except the gospel that Jesus Christ has preached by his own mouth, is another gospel and all those who preach them are of another Jesus Christ. Further, the true Jesus Christ is the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, who is now the omnipotent Spirit, the invisible God, who is in this world. All other Jesus Christs are false Jesus Christs, even though they are preached in churches; and every unholy manifestation is by another spirit.

Jesus says in "Matthew 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Christians do not understand this verse, because they do not know scriptures. God the Word became flesh, a mere man, and so, Jesus was a mere man. Resurrected Jesus became 'Word of God' again as in 1 John 5:7, made Lord and Christ as in Acts 2:36, declared as begotten Son as in Psalm 2:7 and Acts 13:32-34, and he was anointed as God as in Hebrews 1:8-9. So now, Lord Jesus Christ is God in the omnipotent Spirit, and nobody can see him. And it is not an easy thing to access Almighty God and to do things with him as normal. So, the above verse refers to false preachers, who claim that Christ is with them, and say that they do miracles and healings by Jesus Christ. They are deceivers. True servants of God also may do signs and healings. God gives his power to do miracles to his servants freely, and tells them; "freely ye have received, freely give." Those who advertise their healing and miracles, look for good offering, fame, and profit; and conduct such miracles as a business exhibit for promotion; and all such people are of Satan. True servants of God will do it freely without any personal strings attached, only to bring glory to God, and for the people to have faith in God. They preach truth.

I like to say something in the front, even though I do not have time today to prove it from scriptures; that antichrist is Satan, who exists from the beginning of the church and will remain until the end of the church. He is a spirit, he can be present in worship places without people seeing him, he will give power and use his servants as antichrists to do all kinds of miracles and so on. "1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." The end of this verse says who is antichrist, but I gave it in the front. This verse says that antichrist is already here. But most churches preach that they are waiting for a man to come to rule the world to be antichrist and so they are waiting for one world government. It is politics for a lot of people to become filthy rich, famous, and powerful; and that has nothing to do with antichrist. He is already here for the last 2000+ years. Rest of the verses are a little difficult since the explanation is not given in the verse. God became flesh in John 1:14; flesh became Christ in Acts 2:36; and was anointed as God in Hebrews 1:8-9. Yet, flesh is not God, flesh is flesh and spirit is spirit, as in John 3:6. If we understand this, rest is easy. The man Jesus became Christ, the Son of God and God, but the man was not God. Antichrist will deny this truth by juggling around it in his doctrines and confuse people who are not deep rooted in the truth. The doctrine that man Jesus was 100% man and 100% God, also part of the doctrine of the antichrist. When he was a man, he was 100% man, and when he is God, he is 100% God.

6. Satan shows him as God and is worshipped in Churches

Christians may not believe that there are cautions against false Jesus Christs in the bible. As we worship Lord Jesus Christ as God, if Satan shows himself as Jesus Christ and receives our worship, it is a despicable deception. The bible says that Satan is doing just that, and we are worshipping Satan without knowing it. "2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God... 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work." That is, the antichrist is already sitting in our churches for the last two thousand years, and we are worshipping him as Jesus Christ. It is scripture. When I first read it, I was shocked. Are you shocked? The bible says that it is mystery of iniquity, and I get angry at every time I read it. So, Satan is worshipped in Hindu temples, Muslim mosques, and even in our churches. So, Christians are deceived; and it is unbelievable and unacceptable. I am not saying it; but the bible says it.

7. As Omnipotent God, Lord Jesus Christ turns us from Sins.

Preachers commonly preach a Jesus Christ who will love you, heal you, protect you, weep with you, console you, wipe your tears, whatever a good friend will do he will do, and so much good things. But the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ is God, who is not a man anymore, but our master. Jesus had many disciples, and added seventy more, as in Luke 10:1. Among them he called twelve and made them apostles, as in Matthew 10:1-4. Among them, Peter, John, and James were close to him. John was his beloved, Jesus loved him most, and he was leaning on his bosom as in John 13:23. Jesus was remarkably close to him when he was a man. Then, Jesus was crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended to heaven, declared as the begotten Son of God, made Lord and Christ, anointed as God by God the Father, approved and endorsed as God by the Holy Ghost, came back to the world to turn his people away from their sins, and is sitting on the right hand of God the Father at the same time. So, now Jesus Christ is Almighty God. On one Lord's day, he visited his "beloved disciple, who was on his bosom" at the island of Patmos. John saw Jesus, not directly but through the angel of Jesus, so that John may not die. John tells us what has happened? "Revelation 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:" The difference between the man Jesus and the Lord God Jesus Christ, is pictured here. He was leaning on his bosom. Now, John fell at his feet as a dead man. But, now a days, so many preachers see Jesus and sit with him in equal status, have news conference with him and so on. They write books, believed, admired, and become famous. They are cheap filthy liars and fools believe them. Almighty Jesus Christ is here to turn us away from our sins as in Acts 3:26. If we look for him as in Hebrews 9:28, he will manifest to us as God and he will save us without sin.

8. Almighty God Jesus Christ tells to obey His commandments

In Matthew 28:18-20, the Lord God Jesus Christ came to his disciples, told them to teach his commandments to people and tell them to obey them for eternal life. He preached the same thing in Mark 16:15-16 as gospel for salvation. "2 Thessalonians 1:7 says, .. when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:" Jesus says that he will take vengeance on those who did not obey him, in the lake of fire. It is harsh punishment, but this is the true Jesus Christ of the Bible. Is this the Jesus Christ that preachers preach in churches? Churches preach a legend and a venerated man Jesus, as Christ and God. That Jesus Christ will come after you, died for you, beg you, plead you, and request you to accept him and to receive him. And you come to him because you feel sorry for him and have compassion on him. But Lord Jesus Christ is God, and he will not beg or plead any. Listen to what the true Lord Jesus Christ tells in his final statement to the churches. "Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." Here he says that whatever you do, keep doing. He will reward you in proportion to as much you have done. But preachers are very loudly preaching that it is not by works. They are of Satan and they tell lies. "13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." Jesus Christ signs his name in verse 13. Then he tells us that those who do his commandments will enter in and inherit his kingdom. So, obey his commandments.
