Alchemy And Sorcerers, The Power Of God?, Satan's Converts,
Ungodly Manifestations, Obtaining Faith, Miracles To Believe
Or Because We Believe?, Fishes And Loaves Crowd, Christian
Circus, Lion In Wait, Chaff Or Real Wheat?, God's Fruitful
Branches, Blind Leading The Blind, Go With The Flow?, Remove
Weak False Shepherds, Silent Compromise Or Obey The Lord?

As I thought on this issue of gold fillings, I was suddenly
shocked when I realized how similar this seems to alchemy.
If you have ever read any medieval tales of knighthood and
chivalry, or perhaps played some of those terrible RPG's,
that is, the extremely popular role-playing games, where the
participants become powerful characters like magicians and
sorcerers, then you will know that alchemy is basically the
practice of using sorcery, in combination with chemistry, in
order to try to convert baser elements into gold. It is
witchcraft plain and simple! Now, in part one, I told you
that there is nothing new under the sun. Satan and his
children of darkness have been using the very same tactics
for literally centuries. Immediately after the idea of
alchemy and sorcery entered my mind, I was reminded of the
following Jewish sorcerers found in the Book of Acts. Notice
that in this first story, Barjesus, who was also known as
Elymas, is very clearly described for us as being a Jew, a
false prophet, and a sorcerer; and that his primary goal was
to keep the deputy from embracing the new Christian faith:

"And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they
found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name
was Barjesus: Which was with the deputy of the country,
Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and
Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. But Elymas the
sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood
them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then
Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost,
set his eyes on him, And said, O full of all subtilty and
all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all
righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways
of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon
thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a
season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a
darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the
hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed,
being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord."
Acts 13:6-12, KJV

"But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime
in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of
Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom
they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying,
This man is the great power of God. And to him they had
regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with
sorceries. But when they believed Philip preaching the
things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus
Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon
himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he
continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles
and signs which were done...And when Simon saw that through
laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given,
he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that
on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because
thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with
money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for
thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore
of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought
of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that
thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of
iniquity. Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord
for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come
upon me." Acts 8:9-13, 18-24, KJV

In this second account, while we are not outright told that
Simon was a Jew, the fact that this occurred in Samaria, may
be an indication that he was; although it is also true that
there were many foreigners living in Samaria at the time due
to the various invasions by the Assyrians, Babylonians, etc.
One thing is for certain; just as Paul pointedly asked the
new Disciples in the churches of Galatia who had bewitched
them, which I believe was really a rhetorical question,
being as Paul already knew that it was the antichrist Jews,
we are told here that Simon also bewitched the people of
Samaria; so much so, that they exclaimed 'This man is the
great power of God'. In other words, he cast such a powerful
spell upon the Samaritans, through the evil display of his
ungodly abilities, that they failed to realize that, while
Simon was indeed 'the great power of God', he was actually
the great power of the god of this world, Satan himself! He
was a child of hell and a son of Satan his spiritual father,
as Jesus also told the Jews in the following verses:

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye
compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is
made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than
yourselves." Matthew 23:15, KJV

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your
father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and
abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a
liar, and the father of it." John 8:44, KJV

Let me tell you something; Christians are not the only ones
who are interested in evangelizing the world! Satan has the
very same agenda; and he has been very successful at it! He
has already won many converts to his cause, just as we have
also won many souls to the cause of Christ. In fact, that
demon of darkness has been so successful in his campaign
against the Children of Light, that as I explain in many of
my Endtime articles, someday soon, his children will pledge
their loyalty to their ungodly spiritual father, when they
bow down to the Beast and receive his damnable mark!:

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor,
free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in
their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he
that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number
of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding
count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a
man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
Revelation 13:16-18, KJV

I am simply amazed by the similarities between this story,
and the people's reaction to Simon, due to their own lack of
Spiritual Discernment, and what we see happening in some of
these congregations today! I have read a number of personal
testimonies from different Christians, who have told me how
they have been compelled to leave their church, sometimes
after many years of fellowship with that congregation, due
to the fact that their brothers and sisters in the Lord have
fallen under the strong delusion of some of these modern-day
false prophets and sorcerers. If you have read my revelatory
series 'Have You Been Slain In The Spirit?', then you will
already know to what I am referring. Some of these so-called
'men of God' have become so extremely powerful through their
fellowship with the forces of darkness, that all they have
to do is to touch a person, or to blow on them lightly, or
even to just speak the word, and the person will keel over
backwards. I have read accounts of how rows upon rows of
people have fallen over backwards, 'slain in the spirit',
because of the evil power exerted by these false ministers
of light. I am reminded of one of my favorite verses from
the Book of Isaiah:

"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put
darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter
for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20, KJV

What is truly tragic, is that these poor people want it to
happen; they expect it to happen; and when nothing does
happen, like it is happening to all of their friends around
them, they feel very disappointed, as if something must be
terribly wrong with them. They are deceived by others into
believing that they must really be displeasing to the Lord.
They must not be very 'spiritual'. These so-called 'godly
manifestations' have resulted in people being 'slain in the
spirit', barking like dogs, rolling on the floor in a fit of
hysterical laughter, stomping their feet, screaming and
yelling, moaning and groaning, shaking and jerking, foaming
at the mouth, and now even having their teeth filled with
gold, and gold dust appearing on their persons, if it is to
be believed. These people are encouraging all of these
manifestations to occur, by foolishly inviting these evil
forces into their lives. They have created a spiritual
vacuum, and Satan is more than happy to fill it! These
things may taste sweet in their mouths now, but someday, it
will turn sour in their bellies, because it was Satan's
bitter poison all along! It was darkness, and not the Light
that they erroneously assumed it to be!

But there is no need to worry, is there? Like the foolish
Samaritans, these deceived Christians can simply say 'This
man is the great power of God! God is doing these things
through him! Don't be afraid of it just because it is a
little out of the ordinary, and not what you are normally
used to seeing in the churches'. To those of you who have
fallen under this evil influence, like the Apostle Paul, I
must also say to you: "O foolish Christians, who hath
bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth?" Wake up!

Let us return now to the issue of faith. I have already told
you what faith is, but exactly how does one acquire faith?
As we saw in part one, the Apostle Paul answers this for us
in his Epistle to the Romans, by telling us that faith comes
through a study of God's Word. Paul wrote '"So then faith
cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God". Not only
do we obtain faith through reading God's Word, but we also
keep, maintain and cultivate our faith so that it will grow,
by continuing to read God's Word, and also by putting our
faith into action. As we also saw in part one, James wrote
"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith
without works is dead also"; so we must put feet to our
faith. Both Paul and Peter discussed the need for spiritual
growth. Consider the following examples:

"As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that
ye may grow thereby:" 1 Peter 2:2, KJV

"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:...But
speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all
things, which is the head, even Christ:"
Ephesians 4:13, 15, KJV

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so
walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished
in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with
thanksgiving." Colossians 2:6,7, KJV

If you are interested in reading more about spiritual
growth, I encourage you to read such articles as 'Are You
Just A Baby Huey?', as well as 'My Personal Vision And Your
Challenge'. To reiterate then, our faith as Christians, is
supposed to be solely based upon the promises found in God's
Word, and not upon our own good works, or upon any outward
physical signs or manifestations. While true miracles will
most certainly encourage and strengthen our faith, just as
Jesus Himself performed many wonderful works in order to
firmly prove His Messiahship, as well as because He simply
possessed a great love for the people, our faith should not
be rooted in such miracles. It must rest squarely upon the
Rock of God's Word. Such manifestations should be a result
of our faith, and not a requirement for our faith. In other
words, we shouldn't need physical miracles in order to have
faith, but true miracles will indeed prove our faith; that
is, they will be the positive result of having true faith in
the Word of God; and that is the key; the Word of God. What
we must ask ourselves regarding these current manifestations
which are occurring within the Christian body, is whether or
not they are in accordance with the Word of God. Is there a
Scriptural precedent for them? Once we really study God's
Word, being led by His Spirit, the answer becomes quite

It is interesting to note that just as modern Christians
pour into these churches and fellowships by the droves when
they hear of these so-called 'manifestations', because they
obviously seek a sign, many people followed after Jesus for
the very same reason. It wasn't that they really believed in
Him as the Son of the God; they were just thrilled by the
miracles that He did. In fact, the Lord Himself tells us
that some of them were so selfish, and so hard-hearted, that
they didn't even care about the miracles; and they most
certainly did not believe that He was the Son of God; they
were just happy to fill their bellies with the fishes and
the loaves. Consider the following verses which make this
very evident:

"The day following, when the people which stood on the other
side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there,
save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that
Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that
his disciples were gone away alone; (Howbeit there came
other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did
eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:) When the
people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his
disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum,
seeking for Jesus. And when they had found him on the other
side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou
hither? Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but
because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Labour
not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which
endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall
give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. Then said
they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the
works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the
work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. They
said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that
we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? Our
fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He
gave them bread from heaven to eat. Then Jesus said unto
them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not
that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true
bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh
down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said
they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus
said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me
shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never
thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and
believe not." John 6:22-36, KJV

Isn't that amazing? They had seen the signs; He had filled
their bellies; and yet those unbelieving Jews still did not
believe in Him, and demanded even more signs! They were just
a part of the 'fishes and the loaves crowd' who were there
for the thrill of the moment, to see what they could get out
of it. They were not interested in the Words of Life which
came from the Saviour's mouth; they didn't want the Heavenly
Manna; they only wanted the physical bread.

This is a very serious concern of mine which I express in
other articles as well. Being as I am outside of organized
religion, it is very easy for me to see how sidedtracked our
faith has become in this modern day; and I must say that it
is the fault of the false shepherds. I am alarmed by the
Spiritless, worldly pastors, priests and preachers who are
placing more emphasis on the sights and the sounds; and yes,
on these so-called 'manifestations', than they are on the
serious study of God's Word. It seems that being 'slain in
the spirit', speaking in tongues, rolling on the floor due
to 'holy laughter', barking like dogs, roaring like lions,
having one's teeth filled with gold, bringing in the best
so-called Christian rock band, and having cheerleaders and
banners to captivate, woo and keep their audiences, have
become more important to some of these men, than in making
sure that the faith of their congregations is firmly founded
upon the Word. It is a total circus, and a far cry from the
original Church of the First Century, which took heed to the
Apostle Peter's warning when he wrote:

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as
a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"
1 Peter 5:8, KJV

As I said at the very beginning of this series, some of our
dear Christian brethren are being devoured by these ungodly
spirits, by the lion in their very own circus, and they
don't even know it! The lion is not only out of his cage,
but he is out of control! Do you recall the verses I shared
in part one from Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians? In those
verses, he tells us that these false brethren, these false
ministers of light who introduce these deceptive doctrines
and ungodly manifestations into the Lord's body, 'lie in
wait to deceive'. Just like their father the devil, these
deceivers lie in wait, just as a lion will lay low, waiting
for the opportune moment to pounce upon its prey; and they
will often attack the weakest, the smallest, the slowest,
and the most unsuspecting of the herd. Let this be a warning
to all of you who are still young in the faith. You are more
prone to attack by the forces of darkness, than the Lord's
battle-scarred and experienced fighters who have already
learned to keep an eye out for the onslaughts of the enemy!

For those of you who have already fallen into Satan's trap,
allow me to ask you: If all of these signs, and the noise
and the excitement in the flesh were to just suddenly stop,
would your faith also disappear? Once the thrill is gone,
will you be gone too, just like the 'fishes and the loaves
crowd'? Are you like the chaff which is separated by the
wind of false doctrines, or are you real wheat, which is
truly rooted in the Word of God, and established in the
faith as the Apostle Paul tells us? In a spiritual sense,
are you still a child who lacks true Spiritual Discernment?
Allow me to remind you again of what Paul wrote:

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so
walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished
in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with
thanksgiving." Colossians 2:6,7, KJV

"That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro,
and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the
sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in
wait to deceive;" Ephesians 4:14, KJV

Do you see the comparison Paul is making in that last verse?
Just like young, physical children, who due to their own
lack of wisdom and maturity, naively accept whatever their
parents or other adults tell them, Paul is stating that it
is time that we Christians stop being spiritual children,
who blindly accepting whatever false doctrine, practice or
manifestation is presented to us. We all need to grow up
spiritually, and to ask the Lord for His Divine Wisdom and
Spiritual Discernment. We need to stop being tricked by
Satan's subtle devices. We need to become serious about our
faith. Only those who were serious about their new faith,
and who persevered in the Lord's teachings, survived after
Jesus had returned to His Father in Heaven. All of the rest
of the half-hearts soon forgot the excitement of the moment,
and returned to their dull, empty, spiritless lives. As
Jesus teaches us in the Parable of the Sower, such people
are choked by the cares of this life, because they are not
truly grounded in the Word of the Lord as they should be:

"And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with
it, and choked it...And that which fell among thorns are
they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked
with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring
no fruit to perfection." Luke 8:7, 14, KJV

Such people are dead, fruitless branches; who after hearing
the Words that give Life, do not remain grounded in the
Word, so that they can bring forth more fruit as the Lord
commands us to do. As I explain in other articles, such as
in 'Once Upon A Time: A True Story', being as we are the
spiritual Bride of Christ, we are to bring forth fruit, that
is, new spiritual children, into the Kingdom of God. The
only way that we can do this, is by remaining yielded to the
Lord, by remaining grounded in His Word, and by obeying that
Word by sharing it with others through personal witnessing,
so that they too can find Eternal Life. We cannot win them
of our own accord; only God's Spirit can do that; but we
must at least give them a chance by being faithful messenger
boys and girls. This is what the Lord requires of us, His
children. We cannot, and should not, be ashamed of Him, or
of our faith. Consider the following verses:

"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that
winneth souls is wise." Proverbs 11:30, KJV

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every
branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and
every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may
bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word
which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As
the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in
the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the
vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in
him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye
can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth
as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast
them into the fire, and they are burned...Ye have not chosen
me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should
go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he
may give it you." John 15:1-6, 16, KJV

"And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as
hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some
thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred."
Mark 4:20, KJV

"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law
by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another,
even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should
bring forth fruit unto God." Romans 7:4, KJV

"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words
in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of
his Father with the holy angels." Mark 8:38, KJV

While Satan is constantly on the attack, trying to sift
God's children like wheat, in order to prevent us from
bearing fruit for the Lord, just as he did with Peter, the
Bible also clearly tells us that at the end of the world,
there is going to be one final sifting of the wheat by the
Lord Himself at the time of the Great Harvest, when He blows
away the ungodly people of the world with a strong blast of
His nostrils. Might it be possible that this purge will also
include the chaff of deceived brethren and false leaders,
who have foolishly accepted these ungodly doctrines, and
devilish manifestations as being of the Lord? Consider the
following verses. I am including all of Psalm One, as it
clearly shows the contrast between those who are rooted
firmly in God's Word, and the ungodly who reject the Lord's

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in
the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of
the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And
he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall
not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The
ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind
driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the
judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way
of the ungodly shall perish." Psalms 1:1-6, KJV

"How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft
cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows
in his anger. They are as stubble before the wind, and as
chaff that the storm carrieth away." Job 21:17,18, KJV

"Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the
gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff
of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them
away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that
smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the
whole earth." Daniel 2:35, KJV

"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he
that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am
not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy
Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will
throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the
garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable
fire." Matthew 3:11,12, KJV

"And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired
to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have
prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art
converted, strengthen thy brethren." Luke 22:31,32, KJV

Perhaps if I say this enough, you will begin to believe me.
One of the primary reasons why these deceptive doctrines and
demonic manifestations have become so rooted in some of the
Lord's flocks, is because instead of going straight to God's
Word in order to confirm what is of the Lord's Spirit, and
what is not, by trying, or testing, the spirits against His
Word, as the Apostle John instructed us to do, the majority
of Christians trust in their spiritual elders completely to
tell them the truth. They are still spiritual children. In
his first Epistle, John wrote:

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits
whether they are of God: because many false prophets are
gone out into the world." 1 John 4:1, KJV

Sadly, some of the modern-day clergy is not doing this; and
they certainly must not be encouraging their congregations
to do it either; otherwise, these kinds of things would not
be happening within the Body of Christ. Due to their own
lack of spiritual depth, which is a result of compromise in
their lives, and their not having a strong connection with
the Lord's Spirit through a clear understanding of His Word,
some of these church and fellowship leaders have allowed
themselves to be carried along by this flood of spiritual
deception, instead of resisting it, and fighting against it.
They have become blind leaders of the blind; and as Jesus
told His followers:

"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if
the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
Matthew 15:14, KJV

As I mentioned earlier, these irresponsible shepherds are
encouraging these things by saying, 'Oh yes; this is just
another manifestation of God's Spirit. Just accept it;
you'll get used to it after a while. Don't be put off by its
strangeness'. The attitude of some of these hirelings seems
to be that as long as it is bringing more members through
their doors, and filling up their collection plates, they
will continue to encourage it. In modern language, we refer
to this as 'going with the flow'; and many of their members
are flowing right along behind them; but do you know where
it will lead unless they wake up? Jesus Himself tells us
quite plainly when He says:

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many
there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few
there be that find it." Matthew 7:13,14, KJV

Quite frankly, it is my opinion that if the leaders of these
churches and fellowships are so spiritually shallow, and so
lacking in discernment, that they are unable to recognize
what is truly of God's Spirit, and what is not, then they
have no right leading the Lord's children in any capacity,
whether it be as a priest, pastor, minister, Sunday school
teacher, fellowship leader, or whatever position they may
occupy. As a responsible member of your congregation or
fellowship, I do not encourage you to put up with such weak
leaders. If your prayers do not result in positive change in
your fellowship, and particularly in the person leading it,
then I believe that it is your right, as a Bible-believing
Christian, to seek to have such an unspiritual shepherd
removed from his position of authority, if he does not yield
to godly counsel and correction after several attempts.

Of course, you must also be a realist. Unless you know a lot
of people who feel as you do, who also believe that the Body
of Christ has been seriously led astray under their current
spiritual leadership, it would be foolhardy of you to even
attempt to do such a thing. Over a period of time, some of
these men become extremely powerful, and very entrenched in
their position. They will not give up without a fight, and a
very good one at that. No matter how Biblically unsound
their doctrines may be, they will have a core of faithful,
blind followers who will not abandon them, no matter what
you try to do. They will blindly support and protect their
cult leader to the bitter end. In the long run, if you are
truly convinced that your church or fellowship has yielded
to some ungodly doctrines and practices, such as those I
have described in this series, and if it is not possible to
correct and/or remove those persons who have introduced such
things to your congregation, then you are going to have to
make a personal choice to either remain with them, in silent
compromise, or else to stand upon God's Word and leave. You
cannot do both. As a true Child of Light, you are supposed
to fellowship with the Light, and not with the works of
darkness. Allow me to share some additional verses with you
from the writings of the Apostle Paul:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for
what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and
what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord
hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth
with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God
with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God
hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I
will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore
come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the
Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive
you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons
and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."
2 Corinthians 6:14-18, KJV

While Paul was specifically writing about unbelieving idol
worshippers in the above Scriptures, if taken in conjunction
with the verses I shared with you in part one regarding
those who preach another gospel, the very same principles
still apply. We are to have absolutely nothing to do with
false brethren, or with their deceptive leaders, who are
apparently empowered by Satan, the Prince of Darkness, to
perform these lying wonders of the Endtime; otherwise, as
John wrote, we are partakers of their sins. We are to come
out from among them, to separate ourselves from them, and
not to have anything to do with them. As we have seen, the
Scriptures speak very clearly regarding this issue. In the
final part of this series, I will be discussing such topics
as man worship versus God worship, being true examples or
overlords, Satan's confusion versus God's still small voice,
temporary thrill versus true strength, God's music versus
Satan's noise, outward show versus spiritual depth, being
married to Jesus in name only, divorced from the Word,
putting the experience above the Word, Satan's if syndrome,
believing to see or seeing to believe, doubting Thomas,
faith of gold and backsliding in our faith. I trust that you
will join me.
