Daily Devotional. Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress THE TRADITION of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD by your tradition? YE HYPOCRITES, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, THIS PEOPLE DRAWETH NIGH (near) UNTO ME with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME. But IN VAIN THEY do WORSHIP me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matthew 15:1-3,7-9. The American denominational religious system is pure hypocrisy. ALL Denominations in America, from the Catholic Church, to the Baptist Church, to deceived off-shoots that require magical underwear or special sneakers to be saved, ARE ALL PREACHING A cHRIST OF THEIR OWN MAKING. A CHRIST NOT FOUND ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE. Unless their bible is one of their own writing. (That’s harsh). Let’s keep going. The Church, The Body Of Christ, The Believers, those who Follow the Leading of The Holy Spirit, are that small group of people off in the corner of these churches trying to glean a little food and water from all the wood, hay, and stubble fed to them by unbelieving and apostate preachers hungry for power and money. Saving Souls is a lost concept to them. Christ’s Sheep KNOW His Voice, they Follow Him wherever He Leads, they Love to Fellowship, and they Pray for the lost. The Lord, in the book of Revelation, calls the Catholic Church, “The Great Whore”, yet right now, many well known “christian leaders” are trying to be very friendly with and join themselves to, the pope and his church. Yes, there are some Christians in that church too, and the Lord is calling them out. “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye RECEIVE NOT of her plagues”. Revelation 18:4. (Study it, this IS in proper context). RECEIVE CHRIST, and, Be Blessed.
