The structure of Organized Christianity is the concoction of man, not the work of God. According to the EDT, “Critical study of the gospels reveals that Jesus probably did not give teachings for the purpose of establishing and ordering the church. Rather his whole life and teaching provide the foundations upon which the church was created.” The elevated priestly caste of Organized Christianity is likewise the creation of man. According to Schaff’s History, “The idea and institution of a special priesthood, distinct from the body of the people, with the accompanying notion of sacrifice and altar, passed imperceptibly from Jewish and heathen reminiscences and analogies into the Christian church. … The New Testament knows no spiritual aristocracy or nobility, but calls all believers ‘saints’. … Nor does it recognize a special priesthood in distinction from the people, as mediating between God and the laity. It knows only one high-priest, Jesus Christ, and clearly teaches the universal priesthood, as well as universal kingship of believers.”
Organized Christianity has been fashioned by human thinking, as a device to accomplish human goals. It is not the true church of Jesus Christ. But while this denominational monstrosity has been strutting around the planet, God has not been idle. For even in the troublous days of Noah, when all the people were deceived and sneering, God was doing an awesome work amongst them, secret in their midst. God was building an ark, and to all but eight souls, this work was foolish nonsense. So also it is today. While Organized Christianity revels in their apostate doctrines and fleshly programs, God is building a living ark, though few there be that find it. The gate is wide, and the road well paved, that leads to destruction; and through it the majority go. How narrow the gate, and difficult the path, that leads to life! and they are few who find it! Matthew 7:13.14 (Fenton).
While on earth, Jesus Christ did indeed establish a true church, but it is not a denomination. It is a select and quiet following, unnoticed by the world. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. The true church of Jesus Christ is represented by the woman at the well. Jesus waited for this woman and met her alone when she came to draw water in the heat of the day. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. The woman at the well was an outcast within her community. But Jesus called her to a personal relationship, and provided her with fresh and powerful instruction. The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. This woman was selected for extraordinary honor. She was the first person on earth ever to receive the full, personal revelation, of the true identity of Jesus Christ. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
Dazed by the grandeur of this personal knowledge, the woman abandoned her earthly possessions and ran to tell her neighbors of her royal encounter. The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? Unlike the harlot of Modern Christianity, this woman did not then have herself ordained and assemble her friends for food, fun, and fellowship. Instead, she told each of them to go out and meet Jesus Christ for themselves, alone at the well, in the heat of the day. Then they went out of the city, and came unto him. … And many more believed because of his own word; and said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves. This woman represents the true church of Jesus Christ. She exists today, and like the woman at the well, she has no name. She is not Methodist, Baptist, Catholic, or Pentecostal. If your religion has a denominational name, it is not the true church of Jesus Christ. When Jesus met her, the woman at the well had served five husbands in succession, and was living with a sixth man out of wedlock. The five husbands symbolize the flesh, the five senses that all men serve in constant self-gratification. The sixth man represents the metaphysics of Organized Religion, the errant doctrines that can never be a legal husband.
Those people who yearn for a life beyond slavery to their own five senses, will eventually begin to search for God. Most will then enter an illicit relationship with Organized Religion. But if their spirit hungers for God, they will refuse to marry this charlatan. These rare individuals will never be satisfied with bake sales, ceremonies, and superficial doctrines. Instead they will seek out Jesus Christ himself, alone at the well, in the heat of the day. There they will learn his secrets and become what he is. The true church of Jesus Christ is also represented by John the Baptist. At the time of Jesus there was already a vast organized religious structure in existence. But God did not go to that structure with his new revelation. Instead he bypassed their entire religious network, and the word of the Lord went to John, alone in the wilderness. Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar … Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. Today also, the true priests of God are not found in religious organizations. They are a scattered few, the men and women who understand Sonship. These priests do not have a church, they are the church. These individuals are becoming the truths that others just read about. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers. In lonely communion they are following the blueprint of Jesus Christ, and their ministry is by example. Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
The true priests of God do not gather believers into bundles, with a view to building a business. Rather, they equip them and dispatch them, to meet Jesus Christ for themselves. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. These ministers do not preach their Father’s truth for pay or prestige. Rather, they share because they cannot hold it in. Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. Both Jesus and John the Baptist operated outside the religious structures of their day. Both were rejected by the organized church, and killed by the civil government. Both paid for their truth with their own lives. And it is only people like them, who will ever become a true Son of God. Jesus also … suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. The ministry of Jesus Christ was one of example. He established a pattern that you are expected to follow. He personally tested and validated all the scriptures that can make you into what he is. As Jesus walked through the experiences of his earthly life, he described what was happening inside him. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. He sought an intimate, private relationship with his Father. When he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. He obtained his own spiritual maturity through the unjust sufferings of earth. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Jesus was faced with crucifixion, a grievous evil, orchestrated by his Father’s hand. It pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief. In that hateful, crazy situation, he tenaciously clung to his Father’s sovereignty and superior wisdom. Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above. Jesus responded to undeserved evil with forgiveness. Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. By this he authenticated the process for becoming immortal love. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. This self-sacrificial love, in the face of evil, is the substance of God. To know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Through willing surrender unto self-sacrifice, Jesus established the New Covenant for all those who would follow. At his resurrection, he became the first spiritually begotten Son of God, in the fullest possible sense. We declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
By this resurrection, Jesus obtained an inheritance as a firstborn Son. This inheritance is all the same character, wisdom, power, life, and substance, that his Father possesses. Saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Jesus became the physical Son of God when he was born from Mary. But he did not become a “spiritually begotten” Son until his resurrection. Physically born from the line of David, but powerfully defined a Son of God, by a resurrection from the dead, through a spirit of holiness. Romans 1:3,4 (Fenton). A virgin birth does not produce a spiritually begotten Son of God. It produces an Adamic man born without a carnal nature. For since by man [the sinless Adam] came death, by man [the sinless Jesus] came also the resurrection of the dead. If a virgin birth were required to produce a spiritually begotten Son, Jesus would be the only one. But he is not the only one. He is the firstborn of many brothers. That he might be the firstborn among many brethren. It takes both a physical, Adamic birth, and then a resurrection, a spirit birth, to enter the fullness of Sonship. Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Jesus Christ is the firstborn Son because he was the first to pass completely through the earthly process of spiritual begetting. By this he became the prototype for all his brothers. These are the rest of the Sons of God who will be born from the Adamic race. Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. There is no Organized Church that understands this example of Jesus. To some he was only a human prophet. To others he was a manifestation of Yahweh. But to a precious few, Jesus Christ was born a sinless Adamite, filled with the spirit of God. He then completed a spiritual gestation on earth and by this process obtained all the substance of deity. And this is the hope of Sonship. Until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the comprehension of the Son of God; to a perfect manhood, to the standard height of the perfection of Christ. Ephesians 4:13 (Fenton). After his resurrection, Jesus planted a portion from his victorious, overcoming spirit into his disciples, as seeds into soft earth. “As the Father sent Me, so in the same way I send you.” And having said this, He infused Himself into them, and said, “Receive Holy Spirit.” John 20:21,22 (Fenton). Those who will become the Sons of God must receive this spirit seed from Jesus Christ. This seed will join with the spirit in a man or woman, and a new conception will occur. A new spirit life is formed. This fledgling entity is an embryonic Son of God. If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature.
These new Sons must then follow the example of Jesus. They must mature their spirit life in suffering, and kill their carnal natures. They must learn to see God sovereign over every good and every evil- they must not hide their hearts from pain. When undeserved suffering enters their lives, they must trace its source to the hand of their Father. As the cataclysmic significance of this realization thunders into them, their Adamic natures will die. Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. Comprehending a new spiritual destiny, unveiled by their betrayal and pain, these embryonic Sons will forgive those who wronged them. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. This is the New Covenant established by Jesus Christ, and each initiate Son must ratify this covenant individually in his own life. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. By this process of spirit birth, the Sons of God will be born into the substance of divine love. For love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God. Like Jesus they will come to possess the substance of deity. To gain an idea how far the love of Christ exceeds our research: so that you may be perfected with all the perfection of God. Ephesians 3:19 (Fenton).
By this victorious overcoming during their earthly lives, they will be scheduled for the First Resurrection. And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. All the Sons of God will walk the same path as Jesus Christ. They will overcome the greatest adversaries ever devised by the mind of God. God has made these adversaries, and summoned them to the clash, specifically for the maturing of his developing Sons. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. These Sons will be born from the spiritual genetics of God, and take their place as the fully begotten brothers of Jesus Christ. For both he that sanctifieth [Jesus] and they who are sanctified [You] are all of one [God]: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren. The goal of true Christianity is to follow the process that Jesus Christ demonstrated, and to become what he is. We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image. His life and example reveal the secret path to becoming a Son. Christ also suffered in your behalf, unto you leaving behind a pattern that ye might follow in his steps. 1 Peter 2:21 (Emphasized).
Christianity is not some prissy social game for the easily offended. It is the very real, spiritual technology of God, calling you to share his character, substance, and dwellingplace. The glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one. The true church of Jesus Christ is not a building, or any denomination. It is an association of individuals that has spanned the ages- it is the Sons of God. The general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven … the spirits of just men made perfect. These Sons will reject the oppressive ecclesiastical structure and its absurd dogma. They will turn away from the noise of human programs and the praise of men. They will not be satisfied with pagan doctrines, nor the fearful lies of carnal self-preservation. They will not be deceived by singers, sacraments, chants, pot-lucks, proselytizing, buildings, brunch, or any other doings. They are not concerned with ceremonial doing, but with becoming the fire-fashioned beauty of immortal love. The Sons of God will seek out their Father in spirit and truth, and find him in every situation. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. They will pursue him as indefatigable warriors. As men ravenous for battle they will wield a sword against their own carnality, pushing always forward to overcome every foe. From the days of John the Baptist until the present time the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force as a precious prize. A share in the heavenly kingdom is sought for with most ardent zeal and intense exertion. Matthew 11:12 (Amplified).
These noble beings will conquer the flesh and become like, their Older Brother to become what he is. Because as He Himself is, we also shall be, in that world. 1 John 4:17 (Fenton). At the end of this age all the firstborn Sons of God, led by Jesus their Captain, will come together to form a corporate, many-membered, ruling council, known as the Body of Christ. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. Those who attain to this body will become the rulers of the universe. They will inherit the double portion of a firstborn in Israel. Giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his. As priestly shepherd-kings they will lead the creation, dispensing judgment unto righteousness. As saviors they will loose the bands of darkness from Israel, Adam, the world, and the stars. The dead will be raised. The sinful will be changed. Those of Organized Christianity will be redeemed from their delusions, taught of righteousness, and brought into the fullness of spirit life. And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.
Your Christianity is pure, only to the extent that you can see yourself sharing in the example and destiny of Jesus Christ. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him. Achieving this destiny rests entirely upon your establishment of an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and your Heavenly Father. Your spiritual success has nothing whatever to do with the churches, sacraments, doctrines, devils, fellowships, ceremonies, entertainment, or teachings of Organized Christianity. By the wisdom and design of God, they are but pagans in the pulpit. We know also that the Son of God has come, and has endowed us with intellect, so that we can recognise the True; and we are in that Truth, with His Son Jesus, the Messiah. This is Divine Truth and Eternal Life. Dear children, guard yourselves from idolatry. 1 John 5:20,21 (Fenton).
