INDEPENDENT MILITANT CHRISTIAN
Being a Christian is more than just giving it lip service and professing to be a follower or disciple of Jesus Christ.
It is more than just going to church 1-3 times a week, reading your bible now and then, or praying only when times seem to be getting too rough for you to handle.
Being a Christian centers on the fact that you have accepted Jesus Christ the Son of God as your PERSONAL Lord and Savior and that you have a personal one-on-one relationship with Him.
You have dedicated yourself to HIM. By having THAT type of relationship with Christ Jesus, you have pledged your heart, body, mind, soul, spirit, and life to HIM.
To the best of your ability, you are obedient to HIS commandments, HIS laws, HIS precepts, HIS principles, HIS standards, HIS statutes, HIS charges, HIS ordinances, and HIS testimonies. In short, you are obedient to HIS every WORD-and you accept HIS laws and judgments on ALL things, even when those same laws and judgments are not accepted by modern-day society.
You are able to spiritually discern right from wrong; HIS laws and judgments will be written on your heart and you will have a clear understanding of the Holy Scriptures. You will strive to be BIBLICALLY CORRECT, not “politically correct” as the manner of some is—no matter what the personal hardships are that that stand WILL cause you to encounter.
You are obedient to HIM, not because you have to be, but because you WANT to be. You do this out of your love for HIM and because of HIS love for you.
Now, are YOU an Independent Militant Christian?
That being asked, in our own personal opinions, from the things we have been taught, from the things we have learned, from the things that have been spiritually revealed to us, we believe the modern-day “Judeo-Christian church world” misses the mark on ALL of the aforementioned “articles of faith”.
We believe that, overall, many “ministers” in the mainstream “Judeo-Christian” denominations, and many independent “Judeo-Christian” fundamentalist “ministers” as well, fail to courageously preach and teach the Holy Word of God correctly and completely to their congregations out of fear of possibly “offending the masses”, or out of fear of being ostracized by the federal government for doing so.
Instead they choose to sugar-coat, soft-sell, or just plain by-pass and sidestep the TRUTH.
They prefer to offer instead a “feel good about yourself” kind of message or a “plant the seed prosperity” type of sermon. They “teach” from “more acceptable” or “more modern” re-written “texts” instead of the true, accepted, infallible WORD OF GOD.
They choose to “preach” a corrupted, incomprehensible, “anything goes”, damnable “gospel”. They choose to kow tow to “the powers that seem to be” instead of kneeling in front of the POWER THAT IS.
They choose the friendship of the world over being WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST and living in accordance with HIS TRUTH!
Many “modern-day pulpit pranksters” fail to teach that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS, that HIS WORD and not man’s hedonistic, secular humanistic, one world-ism “theologies” or “rulings” is LAW.
They fail to teach that THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN IS TO BELIEVE IN HIM AND TO ACCEPT HIM AS THEIR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR.
There are NOT “many paths to the top of the mountain”; THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO THE FATHER AND THAT IS THROUGH HIS HOLY SON JESUS CHRIST! All other paths taken lead straight to death and Hell. They fail to teach HIS LAW from Genesis to Revelation and the reality of HIS WORD.
They ignore HIS virgin birth, HIS ministry, and HIS sacrificial death on the cross for those that Almighty God gives to HIM. They ignore HIS resurrection and HIS ascension to OUR Father and what these things mean to us, HIS children.
They ignore HIS message of FAITH, OBEDIENCE, and REPENTANCE. They ignore HIS message of REDEMPTION for HIS people, those that recognize and accept HIM as their PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR. They fail to teach HIS message of SALVATION and ETERNAL LIFE through HIM-and ONLY HIM.
They fail to teach that HIS BRIDE, HIS CHURCH, HIS BODY, HIS INDEPENDENT MILITANT CHRISTIANS, HIS ARMY OF WARRIORS, HIS SOLDIERS, MUST ALL BE PREPARED FOR HIS IMMINENT RETURN. They fail to teach that this world, ALL MANKIND, WILL FACE HIS RIGHTEOUS WRATH, HIS RIGHTEOUS ANGER, HIS FINAL JUDGMENT.
They fail to teach that HE will separate HIS “FLOCK”, those that belong to HIM and who have eternal life, from the “goats”, those who belong to their false “god” or “gods”, and who will receive the penalty of an eternal second death. They fail to teach about HIS KINGDOM and that it WILL be VICTORIOUS in the end. Evil, sin, and death WILL be vanquished forever.
They fail to teach there will be eternal peace. They even fail to offer an altar call.
In today’s world, those that DO preach the HOLY GOSPEL correctly from Genesis to Revelation (and there’s evidently not too many of us left that do), and those that believe same, are considered “spiritual dinosaurs”, “throw backs”, those that are not “enlightened” to the “modern-day scriptural needs of society” or to the “true, more liberal intent of God’s Word.” We are called “the most dangerous threat that exists to today’s society”. So be it. We prefer to be “outcasts”; we prefer to be a part of HIS biblical REMNANT.
We’ll go one step further:
WE PREFER TO BE INDEPENDENT MILITANT CHRISTIANS!!
Let us make that perfectly clear: WE PREFER TO BE INDEPENDENT MILITANT CHRISTIANS!!! We are not ashamed of our love for Jesus Christ. We believe in HIS WORD and HIS TEACHINGS as spelled out from Genesis to Revelation. We pray that we will NEVER become so weak-kneed or frightened by government-or society-induced backlash, oppression or persecution, that we would deny HIM or HIS WORD.
There are many things we cherish in this world: our families, our people, our heritage, our culture, and our nation, to name a few. But ABOVE ALL ELSE, WE LOVE AND CHERISH OUR GOD THE FATHER, OUR GOD THE SON, JESUS CHRIST, OUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR, AND OUR GOD THE HOLY GHOST, OUR COMFORTER, OUR REVELATOR, AND OUR CONVICTOR, i.e., OUR SPIRITUAL CONSCIENCE. THIS HOLY TRINITY COMES BEFORE EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE IN OUR LIVES. UNASHAMEDLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY.
We pray that our lives reveal this in ALL that we do and say. HE comes before ANY group or organization we may belong to, before ANY church we may attend, or ANY congregation we may be a part of. HE comes before ANY ministry we may have, take part in, or support.
Again, HE COMES BEFORE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING, ANYONE AND EVERYONE, IN OUR LIVES-EVEN THOSE PEOPLE AND THINGS WE CHERISH MOST IN THIS LIFE OR ON THIS EARTH. We pray that we can be OBEDIENT to HIS WORD and that we can interpret and teach it correctly no matter the obstacle, no matter the hardships, no matter the price we may have to pay for doing so.
WE LOVE OUR GOD!!! We DO NOT care what the government, society, the liberal left, or their “churches” and “ministers” think of us or do to us to hinder our advances in preaching and teaching what we have been shown in HIS TRUE, HOLY, INERRANT WORD. And THAT goes for anyone else, or any other thing, in our lives as well.
WE WOULD GLADLY DIE FOR HIM IF CALLED UPON TO DO SO!!!
We know that WE ARE NOT PERFECT. We don’t claim to be. There is only one that is perfect-and that is Christ Jesus. We do not consider ourselves to be “judges, jurors, or executioners” when it comes to other people or the lives they choose to live.
We have no control whatsoever over their actions. As mere humans, we cannot afford to be “holier than thou” in our attitudes. It is not meant for us to “judge” or “condemn” anyone.
CHRIST alone will judge, condemn, forgive, pardon, release, or execute those worthy of each at HIS appointed time. However, it IS our responsibility to accept HIS decrees, separate ourselves from what HE has declared to be sin and those who choose to live contrary to HIS WORD, and to live our lives accordingly. We are to proclaim HIS WORD and stand as HIS WATCHMEN ON THE WALLS.
It IS our responsibility to warn the wayfarer, to call out to those who may be lost or have lost their way. We are to do our best to reach those people and guide them back to, and place them on, HIS HOLY PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
It IS our responsibility to sound the alarm, blow the trumpets, and to help guide those who need it, who want it, back to the safety of our solid rock which is Christ the Lord. By doing these things, we believe we are in accordance with HIS WORD as HE COMMANDED us in Leviticus 11:44/44a-“For I am the LORD your God; ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; For I am holy…”
Does YOUR life, do YOUR beliefs, mirror ours? Are YOU prepared to enter the War? Are YOU willing to give HIM everything YOU have? Are YOU willing to give YOUR all? Again, let us ask the question: Are YOU and Independent Militant Christian? We pray that your answer is “Yes”.
God Bless and Godspeed.
