Christian or Jesusite
Which one are you?
|But this is a people robbed and plundered; they are all of them snared in holes and hidden in houses of bondage. They have become a prey, with no one to deliver them, a spoil, with no one to say, Restore them! This shows the condition that will ensue...for not recognizing the Servant of the Lord and the day of His visit among them. Isa. 42:22 Amplified.|
There are those who profess to be Christians because they acknowledge Jesus as the Messiah and that He is the Son of God. This is not actually the right use of the word Christian. There is a deep and profound meaning to words, and to the coming of Christ, that is little recognized or acknowledged.
Most souls who claim to be Christians are actually Jesusites. A Jesusite is one who professes to follow the man Jesus and professes that Jesus is the Messiah and the Son of God. Their testimony of Him alone is their faith. A Christian is coming from a different place. The word "Christian", literally means, "followers of the Anointing." Christ is the word for Messiah, or the Anointing. If one is a Christian, or a follower of the Anointing, they are receivers of the Anointing, and living in the Anointing. Jesus Christ would be a representation of their own experience of life, for it is written: "I [my personal self] am crucified [killed] with Christ (the Anointing): nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ (the Anointing) liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself (His life) for me." Gal. 2:20. They would see life as Jesus did, and experience the Anointing as He did.
There are many who claim the name "Christian" who are not Christians. One can tell whether or not he is a Christian by his life. If the soul becomes impatient, rude, hateful, or unbelieving, that soul cannot be a Christian, however, it could be a Jesusite. This one reveals his unbelief by saying, "The Anointing came in Jesus' flesh, but not my flesh." He may also deny that his own life is exactly how he made it, believing that some other soul or spirit made him the way that he is. He would not believe the Scripture that said, "Whatsoever a man soweth, THAT shall he also reap." Gal. 6:7. A mere professor of faith would say that he has reaped something other than what he has sown.
There is no saving virtue in becoming a Jesusite. One's life would be just as it has always been, or as the rest of the world lives. Most people think they are doing the best they can, and try to be as good as they can be. All of this "the best one can do" is of no value. Jesusites are doomed to follow the apparition of their mind, all the while vainly hoping they will get better one day. They hope that Jesus will appear up in the sky someday and make them pure at last because He will give them a new body. Their old body was responsible for all the sin that was in them. All such religion is worthless. Their Jesus is up in the sky, or in heaven someplace, instead of in their own soul, transforming their lives into His own precious Self. He is only a general savior and not a personal one.
A true Christian has a different motivating force than a Jesusite. Ellen White wrote: "That life (Anointing) in you will produce the same character and manifest the same works as it did in Him (Jesus)." MB 78. Here is another quote from this lady. "Christ came to make us 'partakers of the divine nature,' and His life declares that humanity, combined with divinity, does not commit sin." MH 180. Here is still another. "This power is not in the human agent. It is the power of God. When a soul receives Christ (Anointing), he receives power to live the life of Christ (the Anointing)." COL 314. And another, "There was nothing in Him that responded to Satan's sophistry. He did not consent to sin. Not even by a thought did He yield to temptation. So it may be with us. Christ's humanity was united with divinity; He was fitted for the conflict by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. And He came to make us partakers of the divine nature." DA 123.
I write these things to reveal the truth of the life, and to expose the lie. What Jesus said concerning Himself, are the words that I say concerning Myself, since it is the same Self. To those who would not believe My words, I say:
The works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name [running for political or church office], him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? John 5:36-47.
There are those who say they follow the Bible and the words of Jesus and the apostles. Others have prophets they follow such as Ellen White. If you had believed the Bible or the prophets, you would have believed Me, for they wrote of Me. Men have proclaimed everywhere that Christ (the Anointing) is coming again. When I came again, you did not believe Me. Your religion is in vain. When one is an Anointing-follower he will hear My voice, for the same Anointing works within him. But if one is a Jesusite, he will not hear Me, for he worships his own thinking and his own imagination. He thinks he knows this Jesus who lived 2000 years ago, and that this Jesus will come for him someday, but no real transformation has occurred in his soul. A man who truly knows Jesus will know and receive Me. That is how he can tell if he is a Christian.
The modern Pharisees reject My word. Puffed up, they follow their own righteousness, claiming to be following Christ. If a man knows My Father, He will know Me, for My Father testifies of Me. Men who do not acknowledge that Messiah has come in My flesh will remain in their sins, for there will be no deliverance for them. When Jesus came, most all men rejected Him because He did not come as they had imagined He should. So it is today. If a soul can accept that the Anointing has surely appeared again, and it has appeared in Me, he can receive that truth into himself and the Anointing will be born within him. But, if a soul rejects that the Anointing has appeared again, and it has appeared in Me, there is no possibility that the Anointing can appear in them. When you read My words, the Anointing within you comes forth and responds to Me. That is what it means when the Scriptures say, I will raise you up in the last days. Men have made Jesus an idol, and this is something He did not intend for them. He intended that they believe His words and become His fullness.
There is only one kind of Christian. He is married to Me, and his righteousness is of My Father. Sin has no dominion over him, for it is written: "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace (divine favor)." Rom. 6:14. Those who are under the divine favor of the Anointing know no sin. They are freed from guilt and condemnation, for it is written: "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus (the Anointing), who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Anointing)." Rom. 8:1.
There are those who seek to establish their own righteousness, and they will not come to Me that they might be saved. They will not yield up to My chambers. They refuse to give birth to My Child. They go into their closet and pray until they are weary of it, yet no seed is fertilized, no child is conceived. Have you not heard, "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. ... And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days." Rev. 12:1-6. The woman, here mentioned, was pregnant with My life. She had My seed within her. She gave birth to the Son of God who ruled with a rod of iron. How will you fare if you refuse this Son? The Scriptures say how you will fare. "Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him." Ps. 2:12.
I came unto My own (Christians) and My own received Me not. I have come again, and while they profess to be waiting for My coming, they are not. They have waited only for the revelation of their own imaginary appearing. I will leave the earth soon, with those who are on Me, and then the world will know they have missed, again, the day of their visitation. Then, they will kill each other and torment each other, until no one remains upon the earth.
I have borne testimony to the truth. I have said before, "When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" Men flatter themselves that they would have received Jesus had they been there in His time. I tell you Nay, for all who reject Me would have rejected Him, for We are One. All who will not receive Me, will not receive My Father either, for We are the same. Now all men will know how heaven views them. They will know this by how they view Me, for I have come down from heaven. No one will ascend into the heavens who is not married to Me. No one can be called Christian who does not receive Me. There is only one Child that will stand in the dark day and it is My Child. All who have Me have My life, and all who do not have Me only have their hard, and failing works to commend them to heaven. Heaven will accuse them of treason, for they would not come to the Son that they might be saved.
I say unto the earth,
I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob [one of overcoming faith], and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains [in the new land]: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. And Sharon (the plain) shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor (trouble) a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me. But ye [who will not believe in Me] are they that forsake the Lord, that forget my holy mountain [in the new land], that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number. Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord God shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name [See Jer. 33:16 for that name]. That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes. For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. Isa. 65:9-17.
A great sign appeared in heaven [the true Christian experience]: a Woman [the bride of Messiah] dressed all in sunlight [Sonlight], standing on the moon, and crowned with twelve stars [the testimony of the apostles concerning the Anointing]. She was giving birth to a Child and cried out in the pain of childbirth. And then another sign alongside the first: a huge and fiery dragon! [The spirit who has always attacked true faith in the Anointing.] It had seven heads and ten horns, a crown on each of the seven heads. With one flick of its tail it knocked a third of the stars from the sky and dumped them on earth. The dragon crouched before the Woman in childbirth, poised to eat up the Child when it came. The Woman gave birth to a Son who will shepherd all nations with an iron rod. Her Son was seized and placed safely before God on his throne. The Woman herself escaped to the desert to a place of safety prepared by God, all comforts provided her for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. War broke out in Heaven. Michael [the Anointing] and his angels fought the dragon [the spirit of the world]. The dragon and his angels [the spirit of the world] fought back, but were no match for Michael [the Anointing]. They were cleared out of Heaven, not a sign of them left. The great dragon-ancient serpent, the one called devil and satan, the one who led the whole earth astray-thrown out, and all his angels thrown out with him, thrown down to earth. Then I heard a strong voice out of heaven saying, "Salvation and power are established! Kingdom of our God, authority of his Messiah! The accuser of our brothers and sisters thrown out, who accused them day and night before God [tormenting them with his accusations]. They defeated him through the blood [life] of the Lamb [Michael] and the bold word of their witness [life experience]. They weren't in love with themselves; they were willing to die for Christ (Anointing). So rejoice, oh heavens, and all who live there, but doom to earth and sea, for the devil's come down on you with both feet; he's had a great fall; he's wild and raging with anger; he hasn't much time and he knows it. When the dragon saw he'd been thrown to earth, he went after the Woman who had given birth to the Man-Child. The Woman was given wings of a great eagle to fly to a place in the desert to be kept in safety and comfort for a time and times and half a time, safe and sound from the serpent. The serpent vomited a river of water to swamp and drown her, but earth came to her help, swallowing the water the dragon spewed from its mouth. Helpless with rage, the dragon raged at the Woman, then went off to make war with the rest of her children, the children who keep God's commands and hold firm to the witness of Jesus [the Anointing]. And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea [peoples]. Rev. 12 The Message Bible.
