The Number One Killer in America
July 17, 2012
What do you think the number one killer is in America today? The medical and scientific community will tell you it is cancer, heart or stroke. If you accept this to be the truth, then I am here to tell you that you are dead wrong. The one disease, which will surely return you to the dust is ‘religion’. Americans are dying daily from that virus called ‘Religious Tolerance’. It is a deadly disease; but the good news is that there is a cure, and its effects can be completely reversed.
Where do we find the root cause of this disease, called religion? It was the serpent, which spread it within the Garden of creation, the first thing about which God warned man, telling him that the disease, if contracted, was one that would lead to death. Yet it could be prevented as long as man heeded the quarantine under which God, Himself placed the serpent, found in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
God had created all things good. There was no evil in His creation, for He had separated the evil seawaters beneath from the living water above, which watered the entire earth, and it was for the good of man, that the waters remain separated. God did not want bad things to happen to good people.
Good, clear waters surrounded the Garden of Eden, and the Lord God called these river waters, the Pishon River. They encircled the land of good gold, which speaks of perfect worship. Man was created to be a spiritual being by the breath of God breathed into him, giving him life. Without that breath, man would be nothing but dust, as though he had never existed. It is only in this Spirit of life that he derives his being from the Spirit of God.
So, who is this one and only God who gives life? He is the God of truth, who, through His Spirit of life, used men to write a book of truth, which is called the Bible. He did not leave it up to us to guess whether or not His Word is truth; He self-validated His book with prophecy, not a little or a lot of prophecy, but rather an entire book made up of 100% prophecy, using every word for validation. His last warning in the Bible was about what would happen if anyone added to or subtracted from His prophetic Word.
For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus (Revelation 22:18-20)!
I do not make these things up. Jesus, Himself, stakes His claim to the Word, in the fact that He alone testifies to the truth of the Word, in the spirit of prophecy; His testimony does not come from some guru, false god or false prophet, who is merely a victim of religion. He clearly states He is the Way to the coming kingdom on earth, the New World Order, which is different from the old order of nations ruled by Satan. He is the truth; there can be no other truth. He, alone, is the life and the only One born of the Spirit of life as the Son of the living God, without the seed of man in Him.
He overcame the lures of Satan in His wilderness testing, which attempted to get Him to listen to the lures and ignore the truth of God. Satan wanted Jesus to make His kingdom of this world, alongside of the world emperors, who made themselves gods over the nations of this world. They are the ones who flood this world with the spiritual rivers of religion based on the lies of Satan intended to liberate man from the Law of God; it is called liberalism.
Man fell into the trap of the serpent, only to discover, too late, that God said what He meant and meant what He said as the God of truth. He had no charter of religion or declaration of religious rights incorporated into His Law, for He had zero tolerance for Satan or his religious nation building. Where religion rules, the Spirit of life and light departs and the darkness covers over man again until he returns to the dust.
Truth has no place with a lie or belief system apart from the truth. In God there is no religious tolerance; for religion is the deadly sin, which led to the breakdown of the body to disease, and finally the loss of a soul as the body returned to the dust whence it came. Satan’s greatest lie of all is that truth and religion are one and the same thing. Satan said that man could believe him and still live, for in essence, God really is just a loving God of tolerance who would never bring the judgment of death upon His good people. And the denominations of Christian religion preach this apostate message weekly, by preaching a social gospel of good works, health and wealth.
Wake up, you fools! No man is born good as the product of the corrupted seed of Adam. He is doomed to die as the fruit of the corrupted tree, which Adam became, in the spirit of religion and death, never again able to bear good fruit for a God of truth.
It is impossible for a book of truth, written by the guidance of the Spirit of life, to be a book of religion, based on the lies of Satan, at the same time. Think about it! The Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament were written by the Hebrew people, the children of Israel. Without God’s people, Israel, the Muslims would have no history of Ishmael from whom they claim an inheritance from Abraham, the father of the Israelites.
It is rather comical to realize that Abraham, whom the Muslims claim as their father, is the same father of the people whom they hate, yet are their brothers. Their religion depends upon the truth or the very same book, written by the hands of the Hebrew Jews, which says God, and not Allah, created Muslim and Jew alike. How can they subscribe to Abraham, and not to God, by accepting a part of the Scriptures, but not all, in order to invent the false god, Allah?
He was Mohammed who claimed to be a prophet, but was not, who, centuries after Jesus, twisted the Word of God into an apostate religion. He did the very thing about which God gave a final warning in the book of Revelation. Muslims are as doomed as the rest of the religious world, which takes the bait of the lure and then tries to combine truth with religion and good with evil.
Constantine appeared to be successful by using religion to take Christ’s apostolic church into the captivity of the final religious empire – the Roman Empire of the Babylonian system of empires. The spiritual flow, running right through the heart of it, is defined by the Euphrates River. This Caesar called his religious system Christianity, and it was here that the confusion began between what was the true church and what was merely a religious system of denominations, calling themselves ‘the church’.
This Roman leader led his people to believe that a religious system could be one and the same as the church of Christ, even though it was built on an entirely different foundation from the truth. Nothing could be further from the truth, but it became the root of religious tolerance and of the confusion within the Declaration of Rights in America, and the Charter of Rights in Canada, both of which equate religion with the freedom and liberty, which only God’s Law can give in truth. Separation of the Word of God and state is an impossibility under a God of truth. Separation from religious, government interference is basic to the constitutions of both countries, where God rules supreme.
The Bible was the only basis for the justice system in America. It is deemed by government to be truth and that is why we swear on it to declare what is truth. In the minds of the American people, Satan has managed to confuse it with books of religion. Hence that woman, Babylon the Great, gave birth right here in America to a system of religion, which endorsed religious tolerance and political correctness, all of Satan’s ploys to destroy a nation founded on truth, but never on religion.
The confusion of the Garden became the same confusion, which permeates the religious systems of America. Our so-called, great Christian leaders will all tell us that only a percentage of the Bible is prophetic, which would mean that Jesus is a liar, for the Word states that the testimony of Jesus is given only in the spirit of prophecy (see Revelation 19:10); He does not break it up into non-prophecy and prophecy. If you are sitting in a religious pew, get out before it kills you, for it most certainly is not the true apostolic church of Jesus Christ, founded outside of the religious temple. “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues (Revelation 18:4).”
Religion is not truth, and man is not inherently good. He is born of his father, Adam, an adopted son of his father, the devil. His hope lies only in Jesus who promises He will return the Spirit of life to man for the mere asking, and then, by his trusting in Him, Jesus will save man when He takes down that last iron empire of the Babylonian system. There are lifeboats waiting for us, which will ride over the seawaters, but only if we are holding His hand and trusting in Him for our salvation instead of trusting in rosaries and bobbles or any other religious practice, which flows out of religious systems.
Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads (Genesis 2:10). It split into the three empire waters of religion as well as the living water. The living water, once again, flowed from the side of Jesus on the cross. It is this living water, which Jesus offered the Samaritan woman at the well as opposed to the water, which causes thirst, such as the salty seawaters, like those of the Dead Sea.
Isn’t it interesting that the prophetic scrolls of the book of Isaiah resurfaced at this time, untampered with, over the many hundreds of years, to be discovered as a life-line to truth beside a Dead Sea in which there is no life? The final iron empire is going down as surely as that floating iron ship, the Titanic, went down – a victim of the deadly frozen waters of the sea. Today, the deadly, spiritual, empire waters will continue to flow from the Euphrates, which runs throughout the entire Babylonian system, including Christianity, bringing them into America to flood a nation, which once stood on the pure waters of truth.
There is no question about it. The number one killer of religion in America is the result of a fast-growing epidemic of religious tolerance. The cure will only come when we come to our senses with respect to our God. He is not a believing and religiously tolerant God; He is an all-knowing God, who shares His throne of ruler-ship with no false god of religion.
