It seems we will never be able to reach the end of all the deceptions, which Satan devised for us. For this purpose, the Lord Jesus Christ promised in Matthew 28:20: “Behold, I Am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion,) to the very end of this world.” (Amplified Bible.) We hold on to our Savior-Redeemer’s promise as we work through this article.

TRUE CHURCH HISTORY: THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE “PROSTITUTE MOTHER” OF ALL CHRISTIANITY, (Acts 11:26; Revelation chapters 17-18.)
In the Book of Acts, the young, truly born again body of Jesus Christ was known as The Way, (Acts 9:1-3; 24:14,22.) The sincere followers of The Way shared the true Gospel of Christ with the world wherever they went, made sincere followers or disciples for Jesus, water baptized them as Jesus commanded and demonstrated, and taught them everything Jesus had said, (Mt. 29:19-20.) The “Followers of The Way” were severely persecuted for their obedience to Jesus, (Acts 9:2.) Deep commitment to Christ and the truth of His Word governed their lives. The Holy Spirit manifested His powerful gifts through them and evangelized the known world through them, (Mark 16:16-18.)
Then, in the latter part of 1 A.D., “ravenous wolves” in the form of Judaist Roman Catholic church Christianity infiltrated the home assemblies of The Followers of the Way, (Acts 20:27-29; 11:26!) This was documented in Acts 11:26. It reads, “It was at Antioch that the [Followers of The Way] were first called “Christians.” Their false dogmas corrupted the pure faith and God-set priories of Jesus’ true followers. They most blasphemously began to Christianize the pagan beliefs of the Greeks and Romans, as well as the ousted sacramentalism of the Old Testament temple order, to draw The Followers of The Way after them, (Heb. 8:7,13; 9”8-12; 7:11-19; 10:1-10.)
By 2 A.D., Mary, pope, and church worship was already firmly established among Jesus’ disciples. In this way, the false church system turned the Followers of The Way to manmade doctrine and physical temple [church] worship under the control of the unscriptural hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, while “God does NOT dwell in temples made with hands,” (Acts 7:44-50; 17:24’ 1 Cor. 3:16-17.) In 313 A.D., with the proclamation of the Edict of Milan, the Roman Emperor Constantine officially declared Catholicism the religion of the Roman Empire. God’s real and powerful Holy Spirit gifts and leading literally ‘ceased’ among the churches. Church ritual and ‘saving’ sacraments replaced God’s Scriptural truth, and their clergies replaced the Holy Spirit and Jesus the True Christ.
In 1517 – 1648, the Protestant Reformation allegedly split from Roman Catholicism, but kept most of their “mother’s” most important doctrines, church norms, and forms. The Reformers Calvin, Luther, Zwingli and their peers allegedly “broke” with Rome, which is now called “Roman Catholicism’s First Reformation.” Protestantism never repented from the pagan Christianization of Roman Catholicism. Protestantism is one of the main ‘harlot daughters’ of the Roman Catholic whore, (Rev. 17:1-6.)
All other churches that modeled their assemblies on Catholic/Protestantism to this day, simply followed the original dictates and designs of the “mother church harlot” of Rome. It was taught that Protestantism and the many other denominations or divisions of Christianity shunned Roman Catholicism. However, today, still without seeking the real contextual truth of God’s Word and the working of the Scriptural Holy Spirit, they are openly returning to Rome in their great quest for “church union.” This union is known as the “Second Reformation/Reconstruction” of Roman Catholicism and her many ‘divisions’ or denominations; the harlot daughters of Revelation 17:1-6.
Most Christians find it hard to believe, but Protestant and all other churches, which are divided into so many denominations, are all closely affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church, (the ‘mother’ of all churches,) through her militant masonic orders such as The Knights of Malta [the Sovereign Military Order of Malta,] the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, and the Jesuit Vatican New World Order. Let us seriously note that the truly believing, spiritually born again, blood-redeemed body of Christ who adhere to the contextual truth of His Word, can never be divided unless they accept the various divisional or denominational doctrines of Rome and her daughters, (1 Cor. 3:1-19.)
‘Ecumenical’ means, “relating to, involving, or promoting the union” of different Christian denominations, groups, and also different religions without repentance from all the murderous crusades and inquisitions of Catholicism and Protestantism; their numerous pagan/Christianized dogmas, so-called “saving sacraments” and other pagan practices, which they preach and commit. Practically this means, by compromising and minimizing God’s Word, church clergies have been unifying Christianity and all other religions into a One-World Religion of unparalleled deceit.
Do not be fooled to think that these ecumenicals declare and worship the True God of the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ, although they deceive their members to believe that they teach truth. If they did, they would have obeyed Jesus’ New Testament/Covenant commandments. The Lord Himself declared, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love, [and truth is a vital component of Godly love or agape,] for one another… If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word [of Truth…] He who does not love Me, does not keep My Word...” (Jn. 13:34-35; 14:6, 15, 21, 24.)
One important way to directly deploy the influence of Rome in their denominations, is the so-called ‘divinely chosen,’ ‘hyper-anointed’ ‘bishops,’ ministers, pastors, ‘reverends,’ etcetera, who are all modeled in name, importance, and collar on the false priesthood of Roman Catholicism. Not only Baptists and other denominations, but especially the Pentecostal/Charismatic, masonic Promise Keepers Movement, through preachers such as Paul Cain, Todd Bentley, Benny Hinn, etcetera, are pushing hard to move all their members through the wide gate of this Jesuit-controlled “new reformation.” Therefore, in dogma and practice, this ‘reformation’ is putting on its clerical collar and changing back into its white, black, red, and purple Roman Catholic coats. These so-called ‘bishops’ of all kinds are allegedly ‘dragging heaven to earth’ and restoring God’s Kingdom here on earth even before Jesus’ return!’ What they fail to disclose is that this worldwide Christian ‘kingdom’ will be under the firm rule of the masonic orders of the Vatican, and they will once again openly be altar boys in the crystal cathedrals of the pagan-Christianized, Roman Catholic Church!
THE KINGDOM-NOW THEOLOGY OF HUMANISM VERSUS THE REAL SPIRITUAL KINGDOM OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
While the true Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ is an unseen Spiritual kingdom “within all true believers,” (Luke 17:21-22 KJV,) ecumenical leaders use one important tool in their unification process — they direct the attention of Jesus’ believers to their ‘Kingdom-Now,’ political/church, Christian kingdom on earth, where, eventually, all the kingdoms of this world will supposedly be under the rule of the mighty One-World Religion of political worship, headed by the pope.
Yet, God never commanded His believers to assume that they can ‘better’ the political structures of this material world; war physically against other denominations and religions, or build Him a literal ‘kingdom’ and temple here on earth! (2 Cor. 10:3-5; Acts 7:44-50!) Jesus declared in John 18:36, “My Kingdom does not belong to this world. If [it did,] My followers would fight to keep Me from being handed over to the Jews. But now My Kingdom is not from here; [it has no such origin, source, or religious and political aspirations.]”
Through humanity’s fall in Eden, Satan became ‘the god’ or highest priority of this unbelieving world; all those who choose to remain disobedient to the contextual Truth of the Most High God, (1 Jn. 5:19.) The devil is not the owner or creator of this world to control its destiny, but for now, God allows him the power to deceive those who choose to be deceived, (2 Ths. 2:9-12.) That Is why Satan could say to the human Jesus Christ in Matthew 4:9, “All these kingdoms of the world and their glory I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” What audacity to speak to his Creator-God like that! Yet, Jesus did not ban him to everlasting torment right there and then. The Lord still allows him to play god so that everyone who enters heaven through Jesus’ Eternal New Covenant, goes there by personal choice, while those who choose Satan and his lies, go to hell by personal choice. God does not violate the free will of humanity. It is one of His greatest gifts to them, (Jn. 3:16; 1:12-13.)
Accordingly, Jesus answered the Pharisees who asked Him if it is lawful to pay taxes to the Roman Caesar, “…Pay therefore to Caesar, [who chooses to do the devil’s will in governing this physical kingdom,] the things that are Caesar’s. And pay to God, [the Most High Spiritual King, Judge, Owner, and Creator of His entire universe,] the things that are due to God.” This is so because Jesus set Caesar free to govern his physical kingdom as he chooses. However, there will come A Day when every Caesar will bow to the One and Only Living God to render an account of his affairs. Ultimately, the Just and Righteous Judge of the universe will bring order OUT OF, [not ‘from,’] all chaos, (Rev. 11:15.) The Caesars, who rule and live under the “sway of the evil one,” and those who choose to obey the Most High God, operate in two completely different dimensions. [1 Jn. 5:18-19; Jn. 12:31 & 14:30; Eph. 2:2; 2 Cor. 4:3-4.] Hence, during Jesus’ New Testament Covenant, (the Spiritual Kingdom of God inside true believers; the spiritual temple of the Holy Spirit,) being of a completely different Origin and Source than that of the earthly Kingdom-Now theologians, will NOT ‘restore,’ or ‘change’ the physical kingdoms of ‘Caesar.’ God’s primary interest is the salvation of souls, who are the citizens of His Spiritual Heavenly Kingdom! (1 Cor. 3:16-17; Mt. 28:18-20.) At the cross, the Lord Jesus spiritually, fully, and eternally destroyed Satan’s hold on all believing humanity, (Col. 2:9-15.) At His return, He will literally destroy all the evil of humans, Satan himself, and all his demons on the earth and in the spirit world, and incarcerate them all in eternal hell, (Rev. 20:14-15.)
Universalism: “The Salvation of Everyone on Earth” Without JESUS and Bible Truth
The doctrine of Universalism, which the famous Roman Catholic ‘mother’ Theresa and ‘evangelist’ Billy Graham also taught, extends God’s spiritual Kingdom to supposedly ‘save’ every person on earth regardless of their antichrist and other detriment choices; allegedly “restoring this world to its former glory” in the here and now. Yet, the truth of the New Testament states that this world is destined for the fire at Jesus’ return, (2 Pt. 3:10-14.)
Þ When we pray, “Let Your Kingdom come, let Your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven,’ we are NOT asking God to ‘bring HEAVEN down to earth’ or to turn this ungodly world into a Godly world. We are asking God to make a way for Jesus’ True Gospel to be preached to the people of every ‘tribe, tongue, and nation; (Jews included,) who would personally believe, accept, and obey Him to be saved, redeemed, and blessed through their spiritual rebirth in, and obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, (Mt. 28:19-20! Jn. 3:16; 1:12-13; 3:3-5.)
Sadly, the whole world will NOT turn to Jesus Christ. The Lord declared, “Narrow is the way and few are those who find it [and stay on it.]” Only those, who willingly choose to accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior, and follow Him wholeheartedly through His Real Word, will be redeemed, saved, and blessed by His full atonement in their place, (Mt. 7:13-14; 21-23; Jn. 1:12-13; Gal. 4:6; Jn. 14:6.)
On the other hand, the spirit at the heart of the Kingdom-Now theology and ecumenism is humanism. This pagan philosophy is supposed to ‘delegate’ God’s special ‘anointing’ or supernatural power to ‘hyper-anointed’ church clergies; making them into gods. Instead of being God’s humble servant-leaders, they become elevated ‘mediators:’ ‘lofty priests,’ Calvinist ‘dominees,’ ‘revered pastors,’ and so-called ‘restored prophets and apostles,’ like Old Testament Elijah and New Testament Paul and Peter supposedly were. So, they are allegedly “christs,” who are “establishing God’s physical kingdom here on earth by “bringing HEAVEN TO EARTH; doing what the Lord Jesus could not do.”
Þ This ‘god-man,” ‘mediating-position’ is exactly what the pope of Catholicism has been claiming for nearly two thousand years. That is why they say, “The church is my mother, and outside her there is no salvation!” However, Hebrews 1:1-3 says the exact opposite. It states, “God, Who at various times and ways spoke in time past to the prophets, [during the Old Testament Covenant, which was done away with through Jesus’ full atonement at the cross, Hebrew 8:7,13,] has in these last [New Testament Covenant] days spoken to us by His Son, [because we find in everything God wants us to know in the full context of the New Testament,] Whom He has appointed Heir of all things, through Whom also He also made the [physical and spiritual] worlds...” Additionally, there can never be another human mediator like in the Old Testament. 1 Timothy 2:5 undeniably proclaims, “There is One God and One Mediator, [the Eternal High Priest] between man and God: the Man Christ Jesus.”
No religion or political power can bring fallen man to a living relationship with God the Father. (And anything can be a religion - the love of money, of self, of power, etcetera; Buddhism; Satanism; Hinduism… and church Christianity.) Only the Word of God, (the Lord Jesus Christ Himself,) and the power of His Holy Spirit can accomplish the personal spiritual rebirth, and lead humanity to truly worship, know, and obey God, Who is Spirit, in their born again human spirits and in truth, (Jn. 4:21-24.) Jesus said in John 3:3-5, “Unless a man is [spiritually] born again, he cannot see, [that is, know, be acquainted with or experience] the [Spiritual] Kingdom of God [inside him through the indwelling Holy Spirit: Luke 17:21-22 KJV.] Unless a man is born [again] of water, [the Word of God, Who is Jesus Himself: John 1:1-16,] and of Spirit, [God’s power,] he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.”
1 Corinthians 15:50, “...Flesh and blood cannot inherit [or enter] the Kingdom of Heaven…” “What is born of the Spirit, is spirit; what is born of the flesh, [human plans and dogmas,] remains flesh [or on the level of the perishable mind.]” Therefore, NEITHER CHURCH, NOR RELIGION, NOR ALL RELIGIONS FUSED TOGETHER BY THEIR RELIGIOUS LIES, can save anyone! Jesus declared, “I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. NO ONE comes to the Father except through Me,” (Jn. 14:6.)
