When I woke up this morning and went into quiet time with the Lord, Holy Spirit asked me another question to continue the unraveling of churchianity in my life. It always starts with a question..... This time, "How long did the Catholic church forbid the reading of the bible?" Read on. This is only the beginning...
The Jews have been publicly reading the Torah for thousands of years. They write it on the door posts of their homes (Deuteronomy 6:9) and have shared it readily, consistently, freely and boldly since the beginning. They have read the same Torah portions publicly on the Sabbath and feast days since the dawn of time. Jesus did this.
THE SO CALLED CHRISTIANS
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matthew 7:15-20
In contrast, the Catholic church, claiming to be the church of Christ, banned God's word, tortured and murdered people for having, translating and reading God's word for a thousand years.
They took God's word, buried it, created a new religion, pretended it was about following the Messiah, twisted it, separated it completely from Torah, made it illegal to worship on Adonai's set apart Sabbath, and by the power of the antichrist spirit that Jesus said was already at work before His crucifixion- deceived the entire world with a FALSE understanding of what it means to be people that follow the way of Yahweh.
Eventually when the bible was given back to the people, they were already brainwashed into believing lies and forgetting the actual true Way of Jesus. Now, the bible is readily available but most people are still DECEIVED because they read scripture through the lens of what they've been taught, and what they've been taught is DECEPTION filled with partial surface truths in order to keep people from looking behind the curtain and questioning too deeply.
(I still have so so so much unlearning of the lies, and learning of God's actual true word to do myself!)
The word Christian is nowhere in scripture. The WAY of Jesus Christ was Torah. He was Jewish. He is the Messiah of the Old Testament ways of YHWH as given to the Jews. He never changed that, even when His intent was to reach the Gentile nations, He never stopped serving His Father's ways of Torah.
Christianity, started by the Catholic Church is what then? ...
When Adonai called Randy and I out of church in 2018 I had no idea how deep it really went. I thought it was the American Church model that He was asking us to come out of but oh my goodness it is SO MUCH MORE.
WHO ARE JEZEBEL'S CHILDREN?
That was the question the Lord asked me that started the unraveling of churchianity for me in September of 2018 as I was repenting through the churches of Revelation during a fast. He would wake me up and ask again three days in a row until I was willing to admit who Jezebels children are...
Catholicism is Jezebel, the whore of Babylon and all Protestant denominations were born of her. They are her children that will be thrown into the sick bed with her.
(Read from Revelation chapter 2 at the bottom of this post.)
COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE
Adonai has been so patient with us! PRAISE HIM! How long will His mercy last with a people who call themselves by His name while carrying the traditions of the antichrist church? Revelation is unfolding before our eyes, time is short and many will be thrown into the coming Tribulation. The Church of Philidelphia is an exception, therefore, if you follow Jesus you need to figure out who this church is and how you can be a part of it. Asap.
EVIDENCE OF THE HORRIFYING TRUTH
Decree of the Council of Toulouse (1229 C.E.): "The Council of Toulouse, which met in November of 1229, about the time of the crusade against the Albigensians, set up a special ecclesiastical tribunal, or court, known as the Inquisition (Lat. inquisitio, an inquiry), to search out and try heretics. Twenty of the forty-five articles decreed by the Council dealt with heretics and heresy. It ruled in part:
Canon 1. We appoint, therefore, that the archbishops and bishops shall swear in one priest, and two or three laymen of good report, or more if they think fit, in every parish, both in and out of cities, who shall diligently, faithfully, and frequently seek out the heretics in those parishes, by searching all houses and subterranean chambers which lie under suspicion. And looking out for appendages or outbuildings, in the roofs themselves, or any other kind of hiding places, all which we direct to be destroyed. Canon 6. Directs that the house in which any heretic shall be found shall be destroyed. Canon 14. We prohibit also that the laity should be permitted to have the books of the Old or New Testament; unless anyone from motive of devotion should wish to have the Psalter or the Breviary for divine offices or the hours of the blessed Virgin; but we most strictly forbid their having any translation of these books."
Ruling of the Council of Tarragona of 1234 C.E.: "No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments in the Romance language, and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days after promulgation of this decree, so that they may be burned..."
Proclamations at the Ecumenical Council of Constance in 1415 C.E.: Oxford professor, and theologian John Wycliffe, was the first (1380 C.E.) to translate the New Testament into English to "...helpeth Christian men to study the Gospel in that tongue in which they know best Christ's sentence." For this "heresy" Wycliffe was posthumously condemned by Arundel, the archbishop of Canterbury. By the Council's decree "Wycliffe's bones were exhumed and publicly burned and the ashes were thrown into the Swift River."
Fate of William Tyndale in 1536 C.E.: William Tyndale was burned at the stake for translating the Bible into English. According to Tyndale, the Church forbid owning or reading the Bible to control and restrict the teachings and to enhance their own power and importance.
To the angel of Messiah’s community in Thyatira write: “Thus says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire and feet like polished bronze: I know your deeds and your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your last deeds are greater than the first. “But this I have against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess—yet she is teaching and deceiving My servants to commit sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her immorality. Behold, I will throw her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation—unless they repent of her doings. I will also strike her children with a deadly disease. Then all of Messiah’s communities will know that I am the One who searches minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you according to your deeds. Revelation 2:18-23
