The Rev. G. David Henderson: Satan’s worldwide anti-Christ religion — now in our midst!

(“Man did eat angels food” — Psalm 78:25)

Since my devotional last month, many claiming to be followers of Jesus have written the Forum of this newspaper, wrongfully proclaiming God doesn’t require followers of Jesus to obey the moral laws God gave to Moses and Israel — reputably known as the Ten Commandments. The author of our Bible (the Holy Spirit) responds with divine disgust and anger, “such isn’t so” (“God forbid” — Romans 6:15)!

God’s fingers have written Moses’ same moral laws inside the heart of every authentic follower of Jesus (Romans 2:15) that empowers us to obey those laws. The same sins God cursed in Moses’ moral laws are also cursed in Christ’s religion, barring such transgressors from entering God’s Kingdom (Galatians 5:19-21; Hebrews 2:2-3; 10:26-30).  

Jesus warned that he didn’t come to alleviate followers of Jesus from obeying Moses’ moral laws. Jesus’ moral laws for his followers to obey are more strict than the moral laws God commanded Moses and Israel to obey (Matthew 5:20-48).

God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit channeling their same heavenly love inside every follower of Jesus, empowers us to obey the moral laws of Jesus and Moses (Romans 13:8-10; Galatians 5:16). We loving God, Jesus and ourselves also empowers us to obey the moral laws of Jesus and Moses (Matthew 22:37-39).     

2 Thessalonians 2:3, 7 and 48 expose how we can recognize Satan’s worldwide anti-Christ religion now among us. The words “sin,” “iniquity” and “wicked” in those verses mean “lawless.”

The main pulpit sermons from Satan’s anti-Christ lawless religion will deceptively be; their followers aren’t required to obey God’s moral laws he gave to Moses. Whereas our religious generation is being wrongfully taught Satan’s anti-Christ religion can’t arrive on the Earth  until all followers of Jesus are raptured into heaven, 1 John 4:4 more truthfully exposes that anti-Christ, his lawless, devilish “spirit” (verse 1), false prophets (verse 1), evangelists (verse 5) and lawless religion arrived on the Earth 2,000 years before our generation. Such anti-Christ church leaders and converts were previously members of Christ’s religion (1 John 2:19). It was sermons that preached lawlessness that motivated them to leave Christ’s authentic religion and moral doctrines. Anti-Christ’s lawless religion has 2,000 years of growth ahead of our generation.

Satan’s anti-Christ religions’ only ability is to addict their church leaders and members with every sin in the book because of its lawless doctrines (“lasciviousness” — Jude 1:4).

The one moral law within Moses’ commandments meant only for the Jews (no other nationality) is for that nation to perfectly obey every word in their Old Testament Scriptures (“the book” of the law) for their salvation (Deuteronomy 27:26; Galatians 3:10). If a Jewish person disobeyed only one of those multi-thousands of moral laws, God accused them of disobeying all his moral laws (James 2:10). It was that one Jewish law only that God’s hand and hammer forever nailed to Jesus’ cross, for no sinner to attempt to be saved (Colossians 2:14).

The only salvation instruction every person must obey since Jesus’ resurrection and return to his heavenly throne is to only obey every salvation instruction Jesus authored before the foundation of the world; which Jesus purposely created for world history’s weakest of all sinners to obey to be saved (Hebrews 5:9); thus empowered to obey the moral laws of Moses and Jesus.

The Rev. G. David Henderson is the pastor of Temple of the Lord at 611 S. Green St. in Dalton. You can reach him at angelsfood@optilink.us. His column appears on the first Saturday of the month.

  • Bryan Collins: Men, step up

    On Sunday, our nation will celebrate Father’s Day. The observable differences in the way Father’s Day and Mother’s Day are celebrated could be attributed to several different factors.  Mother’s Day is typically a more sentimental occasion than Father’s Day because our moms are usually a little more sentimental. Moms are typically more nurturing and so we think of them differently than we think of our dads. It is too often the case that moms have to play the role of mother and father to the children.
