Define Christianity By Behavior Not Images

People were first called Christians in Antioch according to Acts 11:26. The original Christians were followers of the doctrine of Jesus Christ. A doctrine that did not have any objects or imagine worship. Jesus said, in John 4:23 “that true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” Image worship comes from Satan. Antichrist doctrine is rooted in images because it takes your eyes off of the real Jesus and places them on things attached to the earth, when Paul tells us to set our affections on things above. Things you can’t see. So what image can be drawn? All such image worship is Satanic.

Don’t be surprised when you see a so-called Christian church fall, when you look around the church and all you see is image worship. Image worship is what the people of Israel wanted to do, right after Moses left to speak with God on the mountain. People love their worship of images and they will perish with them, just like the Israelites did in the wilderness.

Disconnect yourself from image worshipers and worship God the way he wants and then nothing can ride you. China wants to replace so-called Christian images with an image of a communist President. Is that what the world should see as Christian? Or is this communist President deceived into believing Christianity is white and American and that is his real issue? People may be blind about the knowledge of God, but when your heart is filled with Jesus, your conversation will immediately inform people of who you are. Your conversation forms your conduct and reveals your heart. The disciples did not walk around with pictures of Jesus, when they healed the sick, cast out demons, fed the poor, or caused blind eyes to open. When you have no power, you have to use demonic images. Just be about the raw word of God and God’s Spirit will be revealed to the lost. You already know that. I am speaking to the so-called Christians out there. I see you. Better repent of adding to the Bible or else deal with God’s judgement without remedy.

People keep seeing Jesus in strange places

false Jesus
While the city of Medjugorje in the former Yugoslavia gained international attention in 1981 when six children claimed to have encountered the Virgin Mary, there has also been a long history of religious apparitions in the United States, as well, and often in some of the most unusual ways.

Two Houston women recently claimed to have seen the face of Jesus Christ on a neighborhood oak tree.

In 1996, a Nashville coffeehouse became a tourist attraction when a customer found a cinnamon bun that resembled Mother Teresa. On Christmas Day in 2005, the “Nun Bun” was reported stolen.

Back in 2004, the Virgin Mary’s face was embedded on a grilled cheese sandwich.

A couple in Iowa in 2010 sliced open a potato that had a cross-like design in the middle of it. They later listed the potato slices on eBay.

In 2014, a Michigan man also saw Jesus’ face in a pierogi he purchased at a Parish festival. Just a year before, a man in Ohio photographed an image of Jesus appearing in a bird dropping on his car windshield.

For some this may be comical and for others these are true encounters with God. It is important to understand that we do live in a spiritual world. This means  that not only does God speak, Satan and his fallen angels speak and reveal themselves as well. Be careful that you are not deceived. God has not revealed his face. His instructions for the believer is to worship him in Spirit and truth.

Jesus said, in the last days people would claim Jesus is here or there, but do not believe them because when Jesus appears again, he will not be revealing himself to a few people, but all will see him and every knee will bow before him.

I have a tile in my bathroom that has what appears to be an image of the false Jesus that many of us are plagued with. I don’t worship the tile or believe its God speaking, because he speaks to my heart through the Holy Spirit. No images of his majesty, a still small voice, a knowing that does not contradict the Bible.
