Beloved, can it really be that Christians persecute Christians? Yes, it is true! Here are the words of Yeshua and the apostolos. The servant is not greater than the master. If they hated me, they will hate you. If they hear my words, they will hear your words. If they hear not your words, they will not hear My words. How can they say they love God whom they do not see, and hate their fellow man, especially the children of grace, whom they do see. They who call themselves Christians do hate the children of light. They say they love God, and they hate and despise and persecute the children of grace. I speak concerning those who call themselves Christians in this crooked generation of judgment.
I have preached the one true gospel by the grace and will of God these past twenty years and have been rejected and despised and persecuted and betrayed by those who have called themselves Christians. The unbeliever is largely indifferent, but with the condemnation of those who call themselves Christians, are moved to fulfill the purpose of God. For had they known the Lord of glory they would not have crucified Him. In our day had they known the Lord of glory they would not permit the things that have fallen upon the earth and will fall.
Is not this so with Yeshua? Pilate could find no guilt with Yeshua without the condemnation of those “of the writings of the prophets”. He would offer them a choice, a murderer or God in the flesh, and they would take the murderer. So to in our generation, those who call themselves Christians fulfill the purpose of God but not in the way they think. Thanks be unto God for all people, vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor. “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
Beloved, understand the purpose of God in Christ. It is God at work in our midst. He makes no mistakes or errors or omissions. Everything is as it should be.
“As many as desire to make a fair show in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised (outword keeping of the Law), only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the Law, but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Yeshua ha Mashiach, by whom (the Mashiach) the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in the Mashiach, Yeshua, neither circumcision availeth anything, not uncircumcision, but a new creation. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace on them, and mercy, and upon the Yisrael of God. From henceforth let no man trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of Adonay Yeshua. Brethren, the grace of our Adonay, Yeshua ha Mashiach, is with your spirit. Amen. (It is true!) Outward showing counting the foreskins of circumcision, or the number of those who have said a sinner’s prayer, or were baptized, or church membership, or dollars donated, or books written, or titles, or honors, or the boasting in their church building (that is no church), or number of home churches, or exalting in the work of man’s hands. O children, why do you let them make a fair show of you in the flesh? Why do you let them take from God the glory that is only His?
Circumcision was according to Law. Jews were circumcised according to Law. Yeshua in the flesh was circumcised, and this, they used for their argument of deception in the generation of judgment (70 AD). Yeshua was circumcised. But did the Gentiles have to be circumcised, to follow on in the grace of God? No! Could they? Yes! For Paul had Timothy circumcised, the son of a Jewish mother, and a Greek father, but circumcised not according to Law, but for love sake, that he might win them to Mashiach. The false prophets began with “Except you be circumcised after the manner of Moshah, you cannot be saved.” And they ended with “you must be circumcised after the manner of Moshah, because, Yeshua himself was circumcised”. This is a strong argument and strong delusion to believe a lie, apart from God’s grace. And there was a betrayer in the midst of that generation of judgment, for Yeshua said, “I hate the deeds of those who follow Nicolas.” He was the betrayer, the antichristos, the false prophet of that generation. He gave his hearty approval for the saints to partake in the circumcision of the Mashiach in the flesh, and they took the mark in their forehead or their hand, and their judgment was determined. As was the false prophet’s judgment, for he was cast into Gehenna (judgment) alive. He was cast into the lake of fire, the judgment of God, alive. He was an old man. He perished in the judgment of Yerushalem, for he abode not in the words of Christ in Spirit, but walked according to the flesh. Nicolas was as Judas (Yudah), who hung himself and his bowels came gushing out. Hung himself on tree, despite the one who fulfilled the scripture, “cursed is the man who hangeth on a tree.” Nicolas was a proselyte at the beginning, chosen by God, just as Judas was chosen by God. A thief before he was chosen. And he did not abide in the words of Yeshua, him and those he deceived, and they perished in the judgment of God, the “not one stone standing upon another” judgment foretold by Yeshua of Yerushalem.
And they of the flesh persecute those of the Spirit. But it was those of the Spirit, the rejected ones, who abided in the words of Yeshua that were saved. As it is in our day. The rejected ones, those of the Spirit shall be saved from the judgment of God that brings to end this generation: the final generation. And again He says, I hate the deeds of those who follow the antichristos.” There are many antichristos, but there is one above all, and Yeshua says in our day, “I hate the deeds of those who follow Billy Graham.” He was as Judas (Yudah) and Nicolas, an old man. A thief from the beginning chosen by God for condemnation, to fulfill the purpose of God. For how can the purpose of God be fulfilled without a betrayer? It can not!
