In the last 24-72 hours or more, I have been thinking about the current state of the church, and how the government controls every inch of it. For example, did you know that under President George W. Bush that this regime began increasing federal funding to "money to religious groups that provide social services to the needy." This includes all sects of Christianity and includes the pagan Roman Catholic Church. If you really think about it, this is a means of control. Now think of how it was during the book of Acts and the years prior to that, and you will get the big picture.
Another instance is when I used to work for Church of the Savior in Wichita, KS. They are definitely and still are government ran. The two people who have the most money in that church is Anita Hinten and her husband as well as Michael Peterson and his wife. These individuals work for the government because it was obvious by their behavior. This meant that the President of the Board is making millions a year and hoarding it while paying her staff horrendously, especially since they are at part-time status.
Let me explain further. You will see the link that I posted above about COTS that the average donations are $1,300-$1,700 a week. This should be more than enough to cover for bills and cause them to die out. Where is the remainder $55,000+ going? From what I can tell you, the President has it all financially and is filthy rich by hoarding it all for herself, rather than using it for others. I saw this by how she dressed and acted (besides my former boss). These are your modern day money changers, and Jesus warned us about this in His Word in Matthew 21:12-13; Mark 11:15-17; Luke 19:45-46; John 2:14-17; Acts 5. I want to encourage you to look at the other churches in this regards to by doing your own investigation. These people are forgiven, and please do not take any of this the wrong way. The Lord led me to get this out to you because of how much it bothered me. Imagine how much it aggravates our Father in Heaven.
Here is some more additional proof in the headlines of how this is taking place. Obama, who is a puppet, along with all the others in the world taking orders from Satan himself has declared that he is ready to sign an executive order on targeting LGBT discrimination. Give me a break! He not only is committing treason, but he too is homosexual, and and he will have to answer to God for his behavior (Romans 1; Galatians 5). Not only are we repeating what happened during Sodom and Gomorrah's time, but our country will be decimated because of his lawless behavior.
In regards to Hobby Lobby, I am thankful that they won their case against the feds. My heart breaks for our dictator-in-chief who thinks he can do whatever he wants in order to bring about his own selfishness more so in these last days (2 Timothy 3-4).
Now add to it that the IRS thinks that they can control what a person preaches in the church, or completely take away their funding from the government by not making them 501(c)3 anymore. If I were the church, I would keep speaking the truth, and not remain non-profit anymore anyways because it is not worth it in order to remain tax exempt. Yes, the feds are taking away the 1st Amendment, but they are also making war against us saints (Daniel 7; Revelation 13).
Please ask the Lord for discernment and wisdom when examining this further. He will show you the way. God bless you all.
