The “Babylonian” Jesus
Gen. James Green
C HANGE! This is what has happened to today’s Churches. They have switched “Jesus,” from the Biblical Jesus, into the Babylonian Jesus, thus, from Biblical Christianity to Babylonian Churchianity—all in the name of “Jesus!”
THE APOSTLE PAUL puts forth a WARNING in his epistle to the Ekklesia at Corinth, and to believers throughout Achaia (2 Cor. 1:1). Part of his letter was written to challenge and expose the “false” apostles who continued to speak against him personally, hoping to undermine his (godly) authority and apostleship and to distort his (godly) message.
In 11:3, 4 he wrote:
“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (v. 3). For if he that cometh preacheth ANOTHER JESUS, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive ANOTHER SPIRIT, which ye have not received, or ANOTHER GOSPEL, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him” (v. 4). Another Jesus, another spirit, another gospel!
THIS “JESUS” that Paul describes is alive and well in today’s contemporary Churches. This “Jesus,” empowered by a different spirit, and bringing a different Gospel, was fooling some at Corinth. They were receiving a FALSE Christ presented by FALSE teachers and preachers. Verse 13 calls them, “false apostles, deceitful workers.” This same spirit (of the devil!!) literally controls today’s ministers and congregations (with some exceptions)…hence, spiritual bankruptcy, although most claim the “prosperity message.” RICH-CRAFT! is none other than WITCH-CRAFT.
YES. IN TWO WAYS. A minister may actually teach true Biblical revelation, but their relationship with Christ can be FALSE; or they may teach falsely out of the Bible on purpose because their hearts are deceitful. It doesn’t matter either way because it will lead to spiritual bankruptcy and disaster. Look at today’s Churches:full of HELL and DEMONS.
Such false teachings usually draw the Christian faith into a syncretism with other religions (like in Islam, as we see today) or philosophies and lifestyles (such as acceptance of the GLBTQ “Abominations”).
Biblical truth becomes less important and Political Correctness become preeminent as we see today. Today’s Churches are under the 501c3 (demonic) covering, not under the HEAD of Christ’s covering. So, tell me, is the Lord pleased with such a whorish Church??
This COUNTERFEIT “Jesus” deceives millions today. He is the PAGAN “Jesus” that promotes all kinds of immorality…and the Churchites LOVE it so!
This ALTERNATIVE “Jesus” may bear similarities to the REAL HISTORIC “Jesus”—even using His name. BUT this did not slip by the apostle Paul. NO! He was alert to the tricks of Satan, unlike these dumbed-downed things called “ministers” today. They are as what the Prophet Isaiah described: “HIS WATCHMEN ARE BLIND: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. They are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter” (or “Church”). (Isa. 56:11, 12).
Remember what John 8:44 says?
“THIS FALSE JESUS,” as one writer described, “is a relative clone of many pagan gods in ancient societies such as Babylon and Egypt.”
It is sad, but true, that millions of professing “Christians” have been deceived, and are being DECEIVED by this PHONEY “Jesus.”
It is a well known fact that the conception of a savior-god was quite normal in the ancient pagan world…a conception of salvation underlines the notion of such gods as: Adonis, Attis, and Osiris.
The Truth Is…
GOD’S PLAN for mankind long predated paganism. While there were only a mere TWO souls on earth (see Genesis 1-3) from the perfect/sinless creation to the imperfect/sinful fallen state of Adam and Eve, there was no such thing as “paganism.” It grew out of their fall.
Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head (serpent/Satan), and thou shalt bruise his heel,” is God’s promise of a “savior.” Genesis 12:3; 49:10; Num. 24:17; Deut. 18:15, 18; and Isa. 7:14; 9:6, 7; 11:1-5 are prophecies foretold about Christ’s coming.
He came! He lived! He died! He rose from the dead! He was glorified! He now RULES!
REVELATION 12:9 describes the enemy of our soul as the great dragon, old serpent, the Devil… “which deceiveth the whole world…” This same “Devil” is the author/creator of the “Babylon Jesus” / the “Spirit of Jezebel” that now rules most Churches.
Paul writes: “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, would shine unto them” (2 Cor. 4:4). Paul goes on to write: “For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake” (v. 5). The “god of this world” is also “god of the modern Church” (see also Jn. 12:31; 14: 30; 16:11; Eph. 2:2; 1 Jn. 5:19), who holds power over and controls most of the activity of this present age. His rule is usurped, however, temporarily but not absolutely. We, God’s true soldiers under His Command, have power and authority over all forces of darkness. Satan’s rule, I need to remind you, continues ONLY by the permissive will of God until the END (Rev. 19:11-20:10).
We defeat Satan by submitting to God Holy, WHOLLY! Playing “Church” only empowers his dominion.
The (Evil) Strategy!
THEREFORE, being born again puts us into another world—God’s world of righteousness. Worshiping the WRONG “Jesus” keeps one in Satan’s world of unrighteousness. This was Paul’s concern. This ought to be our concern. There is NO blood atonement in the “false Jesus,” None!
Paul’s letter to the Romans states: “…being now justified (after confessing/repenting of sins) by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if, when we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” (Rom. 5:9, 10).
But keep in mind that we MUST continue in the faith after our initial salvation (Rom. 3:21-26; 4:5-9). The believer continues to be “saved” by a living/active faith and union (one) with the Living Christ (see our trilogy “Once Saved, Always Saved?).
The False “Jesus” Myth
THIS “JESUS” has now taken the place of the Biblical “Jesus.” This fabrication is disgraceful! The true “Jesus” corrects; the fake “Jesus” allows, and even condones sin. This is why “SIN is in!”
If you are currently in one of these fake “Jesus” Churches, ruled by flakes and snakes (called “ministers”), DEPART!! The true Biblical “Jesus” awaits your decision to COME OUT of HER!!
