These are powerful questions that everyone should be asking themselves?
Not only did Jesus state that many who are first will be last, and the last first (Mark 10:31) but there is a very serious and real dangers in not being the closest of friends with Jesus. Indeed, the larger the ministry, the more highly exalted the Christian speaker the last is their position before God.
In order for these individuals to be popular Christian preachers, authors or leaders they have had to compromise, ignore, explain away or smooth over wholesale sections of the message of the cross. As God is now preparing to sift the church first by unleashing lawlessness in the land many a Christian are going to find out they were only slaves, not friends of Jesus.
To see what books are prompted as preparing for the last days, or being strong during turmoil times are nothing more than illusionary soft messages of peace-peace when there is no peace. Woe to teachers that have not equipped the church with all of God’s Living Word.
No wonder God warned that in the last many will have to stumble in order to be refined while a vast multitude of many will fall away from the faith, betray and hate. Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the ...continue So much sloppy teaching with the offense of the cross removed that the church is loaded down with chaff that needs to be burned away. But then such individuals could not be well known leaders selling the books, promoting the sermons and maintaining a smiling audience and congregation.
Every teaching on www.luke1425.org is the very basics of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Fudge on any aspect at your own peril.
Slave or Friend Christian it all depends on if they understand and embrace what www.luke1425.org is about. Those who do not understand or are hostile to the full offensive message of the cross are slave Christians.
This is crucial to understanding all the “good” Christian influence that God uses to hold back the floodwaters of lawlessness until such servants are of no use to the Living God. Slave Christians walk by Biblical principals but friend Christians follow the voice of the Holy Spirit into the sufferings of Christ and will gain the resurrected life.
While the examples of this are far too numerous to mention here the obvious “Christian” legal enforcers in Seattle Washington State are a poignant example. For those who have eyes that see it is clear in the extreme that the legacy of Seattle’s slave Christianity is now being pulled back that lawlessness may be given to unrepentant mankind in God’s timing.
It is important to understand that the Christian influence for good within the legal system and in holding together the fabric of society has nothing to do with the holiness of Christian slaves. In short, its God working His goodness despite them, not because they are saved friends of Jesus.
It is these religiously born slave Christians that so very often persecute and prosecute the friend Christian. Toward the end of the days once God lets the Lawless One come front and center the slave Christian will be the main component that falls away, betrays and hates.
Therefore, as Seattle Washington descends into a lawless city slave Christian Prosecutors and slave Christian Police could not recognize the Word of God. Not only did these slave Christians not recognize God’s goodness but were available tools to unclean spirits to be motivated to prosecute and blaspheme the Truth.

Such is the sad fate for slave Christians who have no permeant place in God’s household. God just employed them as any king has servants to hold back lawlessness until God’s proper timing to bring about the last days. Do not be shocked at the number of slave Christians who are given over to their sins and then persecute, prosecute those who still love Jesus. All who are slave Christians will turn away from the faith, betray and then hate. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, (Matthew 24:10) As slave Christians chose to believe “little” lies God will provide for them with poetic justice The Lie. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)
Slave Christians use terms like, “With the help of the Holy Spirit.”, “Be humble.” “maintain a good witness” and “Saved by grace” but all without the offense of the cross that would give God’s meaning and power to those words. They are slaves who do not understand what Jesus all is about and thus have no permeant place in God’s household. Since a slave Christian is offended at Jesus, knowing not the power and joy of being offended they refuse and are unable to offend others. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me. (Luke 7:23)
The slave Christian and slave Preacher only claim the nicety, nicety, nice scriptures that can be voided of the power of the cross. The slave Christian does all kinds of nice-looking acts and charity goodie-too-shoe charitable deeds – but the power to crucify men’s sin has been removed by their sinful compromises. God by letting loose lawlessness is calling a stop to that game.
This happens because they are offended by the offense of Jesus and wish all the benefits of Jesus without falling to the ground and having to die to self. You can spot most slave Christians a mile away because they are always explaining how Christians should be loving and gentle as we all make mistakes.
They mouth off this compromising attempt with the world as they look for sympathy and understanding from a sinful world. Such are very nauseating to Jesus and cause much grief to the Holy Spirit because all they are trying to do is make a good impression to negate persecution because of the cross.
If God with great care used pagan Pharoah to glorify His Name He is the same God that is using slave Christians to hold back lawlessness until the time is ripe for judgment to begin. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. (Romans 9:17-18)
God uses pagan police, pagan judges, and pagan prosecutors to hold back lawlessness.
God uses pagan grandmas, husband, and wives to perform acts of goodness and to keep society somewhat functioning.
God uses the pagan workers of the world to provide food, shelter, and medical help just so those who will love Jesus have time to be made ready for a holy heaven. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come ...continue
God uses Christian slaves to do His will, but they are not saved friends of Jesus. All the law and order by those good “Christian” people you so praise, well, unless they are fully living the message of the cross as outlined here, it is not them, but God using them to hold back lawlessness until the proper time. They are mere slaves, not sons. Christian slaves do not understand the message of the cross but are temporary believers in Jesus used by God to do some work.
Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. (John 8:35)
After Jesus had taught the 12 Apostles about the full message of the cross they were ready to become friends of God. After they had surrendered to all of the Truth Jesus had taught and were willing walk as He walked, they could be called friends. Only after they had been enlightened by Jesus to hate their very lives, they could graduate from servant to friend. Because they now understood and will obey the message of the cross they are called “friends” of Jesus.
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. (John 15:15)
If you do not understand what is here, if you have not been living what is preached here and if you refuse to repent to obey what is here then you are a slave, Christian.
If you have not been living the full message of the gospel then you are a mere servant with no permeant expectation of being with Jesus for eternity. ”Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people the full message of this new life.” (Acts 5:20)
Consider God uses pagan police, pagan judges, and pagan prosecutors to hold back lawlessness as easily as He uses slave Christians. In your slave eyes you might be humble, a believer and on a holy mission but if that is not true you will persecute and prosecute the Living Word of God. The Living God is now terminating such slave Christians employment.
God uses such slave Christians to maintain some manner of religious and secular law and order. If God did not intervene and slow things down this world of sin would instantly destroy itself. In God’s mercy as He is giving those few who desire time to repent God stretches out the days before bringing everything to its proper end.
But when the time comes these Christian slaves will be judged along with the man of lawlessness and his pagans.
While not all, but many of the slave Christians are part of God’s powerful delusion performing basic Christian functions for God’s friends of Jesus.
Unless you understand what is on luke1425.org…
Unless you can teach and are rejoicing in what is contained on luke1425.org…
Unless you are experiencing what is on luke1425.org…
…then you are a mere Christian slave who has no permeant place in God’s Kingdom.
In short, according to God then you are no friend of Jesus.
If anyone does not love the Lord–a curse be on him. Come, O Lord !
(1 Corinthians 16:22)
There are two types of Christian believers.
First type of believer is the “Natural Believer.”
The second type is a true Christian born again by the Promise of God.
There are more Natural Believers than True Believers.
The Natural Believer persecutes the True Believer because they feel their lie of false Christianity is threatened.
Listen carefully to Galatians 4:27-31
For it is written: “Be glad, O barren woman, who bears no children; break forth and cry aloud, you who have no labor pains; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband.” Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. At that time the son born in the ordinary way persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now. But what does the Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.” Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.
The natural believer is a church goer and can be quite zealous for what they believe.
Be warned that these Natural Believers will persecute and even prosecute the true Christian just as they did Jesus.
These Sadducees or Pharisees and their followers persecute true Christians.
The Christian of the Promise responded to God’s call for repentance while the Natural Believer’s response is based upon normal religious emotions and reasoning.
The Christians of the Promise deny themselves, pick up their cross and follow the voice of Holy Spirit with total surrender.
The Natural Believer follows the Bible as they interpret it while the believer of the Promise can hear the true voice of God because they hate their own lives by following the Holy Spirit.
The Natural Christian while claiming to do God’s will seeks to do so without denying self and picking up their cross as the Holy Spirit would direct.
Such Natural Christians avoid the Offense of the Cross at all costs rather than paying the cost to follow a very real Jesus.
If you are going to respond to God’s call of repentance it is best to sit down and count the cost before following Jesus because you will be persecuted by the Natural Christian.
