Birthday Celebrations Should We Be Partaking In Them????

Birthday Celebrations. Should we be partaking in them????

The first accounting of a birthday celebration is found in Genesis. Pharaoh, the Egyptian king, a self serving-godless man celebrated his birthday by executing his chief baker (Gen. 40:1-23). YAHUAH gave Joseph special understanding of a dream by Pharaoh’s butler and baker, that the baker would lose his life three days after Joseph interpreted the dream. Joseph understood that Pharaoh would use this occasion—his own birthday party—to put his baker to death. As the dream had foretold, the baker was hung at the party.

In the second account, the New Testament figure Herod reluctantly ordered the beheading of John the Baptist (Matt. 14:3-11). Notice verse six: “But when Herod’s birthday was kept…” During the dancing and merry-making at his birthday party, Herod got carried away & eventually made a promise that he did not want to keep. As a result, a great servant of YAHUAH lost his life.

The final account is found in the book of Job. The Scripture says that Job’s seven sons “went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them” (Job 1:4). These parties were obviously not centered around any kind of celebration related to YAHUAH, or Job would not have worried that his children may have sinned during these celebration feasts. He was not exactly sure what was going on in their minds, but the very celebration of their birthdays triggered great concern in him (1:5). Apparently, during the birthday party of Job’s oldest son, YAHUAH allowed Satan to kill all 10 of Job’s children through what appears to be a tornado (vs. 6-13, 18-19).

Further proof that these birthday celebrations displeased YAHUAH is found in Job 3. Take time to read the entire chapter carefully. Job spends much time cursing every aspect of the day of his birth. The loss of all of his children, due to a birthday celebration, stunned and sobered him. His words make plain that there is nothing good about the day of a man’s birth. He openly cursed the day he was born. This will be shown to have greater meaning later in this article.

Some who are familiar with these accounts attempt to explain them away by saying that there is no statement contained within them that directly prohibits birthday celebrations. They also ignore Job’s comments described in the previous paragraph. It is true that the above scriptures do not contain a direct condemnation of birthdays starting with the phrase “Thou shalt not…” or something similar. But consider for a moment the central lesson of each of these accounts. They represent the only three birthday parties described in the entire Scripture. Absolute disaster occurred on each occasion! If YAH felt birthday celebrations were something positive and good, why wouldn’t He have recorded one other account where something either good or positive happened? Yet, there is no such account. What About the Birthdays of Well-known Scriptural Figures?

Surely the Scripture records the birth dates of its most important figures. Does YAH not want those who serve Him to recognize these most important birthdays? Let’s search for the birth dates of some of YAH’s greatest servants.

YAHUAH does not even record the exact day His Son was born. And nowhere in the Scriptures can you find examples of Messiah’s disciples or the New Testament Assembly celebrating His birthday. However, YAH does tell us the exact month and day when His Son died (Ex. 12; Lev. 23:4-5; Num. 9:1-5; Matt. 26:1-2;John 18:28; I Cor. 5:7). He expects all true Believers to observe that day annually, in the same month, on the same date (I Cor. 5:7-8).

Think for a moment! Every year, millions of professing Christians celebrate the supposed birthday of their Messiah. Yet they do not properly observe the day that He died, which YAHUAH clearly identifies and records in great detail in His Word. He commands His followers to observe this memorial annually. Messiah warned about such misguided professing Believers, saying, “This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. Howbeit in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of YAHUAH, you hold the tradition of men” (Mark 7:6-8). Each year, during the Christmas and Easter seasons, Messiah’s warning is proven right!

How YAHUAH Views Your Birthday

We have now established that the Scripture records negative examples of birthday celebrations, while it is silent on celebrating, or even identifying, the birthdays of all of Yah’s faithful servants—including YAHUSHA.

But what does the Scripture specifically say about your day of birth?

Most people think that the day of one’s birth is special. Celebrating it certainly does seem and feel like the right thing to do. Yet, Solomon was inspired to write, “A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth” (Ecc. 7:1).

Like Job, Jeremiah also cursed the day of his own birth: “Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed…Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labor and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?” (Jer. 20:14, 18).

If the day of our death is better than the day of our birth, and some of YAH’s greatest servants said that their birth date was far from being a special day, then how special can this day be? According to Scripture, it is not a time to express joy, sing and expect gifts, simply because one is born into the world on a specific date.

Abraham is referred to three times in the Scriptures as YAHUAH Elohim’s “friend” (II Chron. 20:7; Isa. 41:8; Jms. 2:23). He is also called “the father of us all” (Rom. 4:16). Many verses demonstrate that he will play a very important role when the kingdom of YAH is established on Earth at YAHUSHA’s Second Coming. However, the Scripture does not record the birth date of this truly great servant of YAH.

Moses was referred to as the meekest man on the face of the earth (Num. 12:3). Many verses describe this Scriptural figure and virtually everyone is familiar with him. The Scripture does not tell us when he was born either.

The famous King David is called “a man after My [YAH’s] own heart” (Acts 13:21-22). Much of the Scripture describes the life of this man. YAHUAH used him to record a great many of the Psalms. When the kingdom of YAH is established on Earth, prophecy records that he will rule the tribes of Israel (Ezek. 34:23-31), called there the house of Israel. Surely the Scripture records the date that this towering figure was born. It does not!

There is not one verse of Scripture describing anyone celebrating the births of these righteous men. In fact, the Scripture is silent on the exact dates of the births of all YAH’s faithful servants—Jacob, Sarah, Noah, Abel, Samuel, Job, Esther, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Peter, Paul, James, & the rest of the apostles. Even the birth date of our Messiah was NOT told in the Scripture.

Origin of Birthdays

Then where did birthday celebrations come from? The astonishing answer is from the pagan practice of astrology! Thousands of years ago, when men looked up into the night sky and charted the stars, they invented calendars and calculated the birth dates, to the very hour, of kings, rulers and their successors. These ancient pagan astrologers meticulously examined horoscopes and birthday omens because they believed that the fate of the rich and powerful might affect an entire society. Even to this day, men have been putting their trust in horoscopes instead of YAHUAH.

In ancient Egypt, the pharaohs ordered businesses to close on their birthdays and gave enormous feasts for hundreds of servants. In ancient Greece, wealthy males joined birthday clubs composed exclusively of men who shared their birth date. Once a month, the club celebrated with a feast. When a member died, he left money to help pay for future parties. In Persia, noblemen observed their birthdays by barbecuing an ox, a camel and a donkey and serving hundreds of small cakes to the celebrants.

In ancient Rome, the emperor gave huge parties in honor of his own birthday, which included parades, circuses, and gladiatorial combat. The celebration of days was so important to the average Roman citizen that the Roman calendar designated a majority of days for some form of celebration—including many birthdays of gods and famous men.

The Roman calendar, with its emphasis on continual celebration, has had great influence on modern society. Consider the following quote about the origin of the Roman calendar:

“Our [Roman] calendar is not Scriptural in origin. It descends directly from the Egyptians, who originated the 12 month year, 365 day system. A pagan Egyptian scientist, Sosigenes, suggested this plan to the pagan Emperor Julius Caesar, who directed that it go into effect throughout the Roman Empire in 45 B.C. As adopted it indicated its pagan origin by the names of the months—called after Janus, Maia, Juno, etc. The days were not named but numbered on a complicated system involving Ides, Nones, and Calends. It was not until 321 A.D. that the seven-day week feature was added, when the Emperor Constantine (supposedly) adopted Christianity. Oddly enough for his weekdays he chose pagan names which are still used” (Journal of Calendar Reform, Sept. 1953, p. 128).

Modern birthday parties and celebrations by children take their form mainly from Germany, where the birthday child received gifts, chose a menu, and received a candle-ringed butter or jam cake. The book, The Lore of Birthdays, by Ralph and Adelin Linton, gives a brief look at the history of birthday celebrations: “The Greeks believed that everyone had a protective spirit or daemon who attended his birth and watched over him in life. This spirit had a mystic relation with the god on whose birthday the individual was born.”

The book continues: “The Romans also subscribed to this idea…This notion was carried down in human belief and is reflected in the guardian angel, the fairy godmother and the patron saint…The custom of lighted candles on the cakes started with the Greeks…honey cakes round as the moon and lit with tapers were placed on the temple altars of [the god Artemis]…Birthday candles, in folk belief, are endowed with special magic for granting wishes…Lighted tapers and sacrificial fires have had a special mystic significance ever since man first set up altars to his gods. The birthday candles are thus an honor and tribute to the birthday child and bring good fortune.”

Saying “happy birthday” to friends and loved ones was society’s superstitious way of protecting them from evil spirits. Birthday thumps, bumps, pinches, etc., were said to bring luck and send away evil spirits. Party snappers, horns and other noisemakers were also intended to scare off bad-luck spirits.

It should now be clear that birthdays are not only Unscriptural but also they are PAGAN!

Why It Matters to YAHUAH

Why does YAHUAH care whether or not you celebrate birthdays? After all, it is a chance for you to give presents to someone and make him or her feel good. What could be wrong with this?

Here is what YAHUAH commands: “Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the heathen are dismayed by them. For the customs of the people are vain” (Jer. 10:2, 3).

After YAHUAH freed Israel from slavery, He clearly instructed them, “After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt, shall you not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, where I bring you, shall you not do: neither shall you walk in their ordinances” (Lev. 18:3). YAHUAH commanded that they not defile themselves with the practices and customs of the surrounding nations (vs. 24-29). “Therefore shall you keep My ordinance, that you commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that you defile not yourselves therein: I am YAHUAH your EL” (vs. 30).

This is an emphatic command from YAHUAH. He does not want His servants dabbling in the customs of this world.

But what about those who reach age 80, 90 or 100 years old—should we ignore altogether the many years of life experiences they have gained? No. In our current society, where senior citizens are routinely ignored and considered to be a burden, it is certainly permissible to acknowledge someone who has reached a considerable number of years. Someone who has lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, the Atomic Age, the creation of the modern nation of Israel, the Cold War, men walking on the moon, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Kennedy assassination, civil rights marches, race riots, the rise and collapse of the Berlin wall, and the worldwide growth of the Internet, has reached an age where special honor should naturally be conferred upon them.

Proverbs 16:31 states, “The hoary [white or gray] head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.” People who have lived to great age, sometimes reflected by pure white hair, often have great wisdom and experience to share with younger generations. Simple acknowledgment that they have reached age 70, 80, 90 or 100 shows them honor and appreciation. It is not wrong to acknowledge that one has reached a milestone in a long life.

What we have described above is far different than celebrating birthdays with all of the usual pagan traditions! Celebrating the day of one’s birth, as though it were a special occasion, is wrong. It violates YAHUAH’s command. It keeps people selfishly focused on their temporary, physical lives, when YAHUAH’s purpose is to give mankind eternal life in His Family. True Followers of YAHUSHA The Messiah should be focused on how their lives are preparing them for ruler ship on this Earth at the Return of Messiah.

Realize that YAHUAH hates all pagan customs and traditions—birthday celebrations are not an exception! 

I just happened to stumble across this- I never knew this particular info before-the fact that satanists {pagans} consider ones birthday to be a high holy day to them is disturbing to me. 

If we continue to partake in these traditions we are doing the same thing christians do by partaking in easter – Christmas etc. by saying “that’s not what it means to me”. 

You do whatever you want your not going to answer to me for it I’m just passing along some info to consider. 

When are we going to remove all the spots & wrinkles on our wedding gown???

Birthday Origins & History with Biblical references

Birthday Origins & History with Biblical references

THE ORIGINS OF BIRTHDAYS:

Birthdays have an ancient origin stemming from magic and paganism, similar to the origins of Christmas and Halloween. This belief in spirits is the reason for many, if not all, of the traditional birthday customs that are practiced today.  It was feared that evil spirits were particularly attracted to people on their birthdays. To protect them from harm, friends and family would to come be with the birthday person and bring good thoughts and wishes. Giving gifts brought even more good cheer to ward off the evil spirits. This is how birthday parties began. 

QUICK HISTORY:

The custom of celebrating one’s birth was considered a pagan practice during the first and second centuries A.D. Because astrology was closely linked with the date of one’s birth, many early church fathers rejected the notion of honoring birthdays because astrology was condemned in the bible (Isaiah 47:13)

After the fourth century, celebrating one’s birth became a common practice, due largely in part to the Romans, who having practiced this custom for thousands of years, began to embrace Christianity.

 The calendar we use today is not the same calendar that was used by the Hebrews.

Our birthday according the Georgian calendar is in fact our astrology date, because it does not fall on the same date as the Hebrew calendar every year. This is proven by the simple fact that every year the Hebrew feast days do not fall on the same day. When we acknowledge our birthday according to the Georgian calendar, we are letting people know our astrology date & not our actual birthday.  

What does the bible say?

Deuteronomy 18:9 

When thou art come into the land which YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto YHWH: and because of these abominations YHWH thy Elohim doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with YHWH thy Elohim.

14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, YHWH thy Elohim hath not suffered thee so to do.

Isaiah 47:13-14

You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators Stand up and save you From what shall come upon you. Behold, they shall be as stubble, The fire shall burn them; They shall not deliver themselves From the power of the flame. 

The word Birthday is mentioned 2x’s in the Bible.

On both occasion, it was a Gentile celebration in which an negative event occurred.

PHARAOH’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION…

Genesis 40:20-22

Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants. Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand. But he hanged the chief baker.

HEROD’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION…

 Matthew 14:

3 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.

4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.6 But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger.

9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Yahushua .

Ecclesiastes 7:1 

A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.

We do not honor the Heavenly Father by celebrating birthday’s.  Especially that of his son, which is YAHUSHA.  It is no surprise that his birthday & many other’s such as Abraham, Moses, Samuel, John the Baptist were not mentioned.  It was never a custom to celebrate the birth of anyone.

Celebration Birthdays was a learned customs of the Pagans, which YHWH forbad us to follow…Learn not the ways of the Nations

How Did Birthday Traditions Start?

How Did Birthday Traditions Start?

To children of all ages, a birthday is a reason to celebrate. But why? What are the reasons for many of our birthday celebrations?

• Why do we celebrate birthdays?

The idea of celebrating the date of your birth is a pagan tradition. In fact, many Christians didn’t celebrate birthdays historically, because of that link to paganism.

Pagans thought that evil spirits lurked on days of major changes, like the day you turn a year older.

The ancient Greeks believed that each person had a spirit that attended his or her birth, and kept watch. That spirit “had a mystic relation with the God on whose birthday the individual was born,” says the book The Lore of Birthdays.

• Why do we blow out candles on our birthday?

The candles were a response to the evil spirits. They showed up to communicate with the gods. A light, in the darkness.

The Germans are credited with starting the kids birthday tradition in the 1700s. They put candles on tortes for “kinderfeste,” one for each year of life, along with some extras to signify upcoming years.

• Why do we sing “Happy Birthday To You?”

It’s the most recognizable song in the English language, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, and it started as a song for school kids.

In 1893, two Kentucky schoolteachers, Patty and Mildred Hill wrote “Good Morning To All.” The tune was published in a book for schoolteachers.

It’s unclear who changed the words to “Happy Birthday To You,” but in 1933, that song was in an Irving Berlin musical. One of the Hill’s sisters sued, arguing that they held the copyright to the song. They won the case, and the courts have ruled that copyright still holds today.

In fact, some believe the song is under copyright until 2030. The owner of the copyright splits proceeds with the Hill’s estate, reportedly $2 million a year.

• What’s the most common birth date?

Oct. 5 is considered to be the most common birthday in the United States. The reason is pretty obvious: go back 9 months, and you’ll find a conception date of New Year’s Eve.

May 22 is considered to be the least common birthday in the United States.

“And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

“And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 

“Because her sins have piled up to reach the heaven, and Elohim has remembered her unrighteousnesses. 

“Render to her as she indeed did render, and repay her double according to her works. In the cup which she has mixed, mix for her double. 

“As much as she esteemed herself and lived riotously, so much torture and grief give to her, because in her heart she says, ‘I sit as sovereigness, and I am not a widow, and I do not see mourning at all.’ 

“Because of this her plagues shall come in one day: death and mourning and scarcity of food. And she shall be burned up with fire, because YAHUAH Elohim who judges her is mighty. 

“And the sovereigns of the earth who committed whoring and lived riotously with her shall weep and mourn over her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torture, saying, ‘Woe! Woe, the great city Baḇel, the mighty city, because your judgment has come in one hour!’ 

“And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their merchandise any more – merchandise of gold and silver, and precious stone and pearls, and fine linen and purple, and silk and scarlet, and all citron wood, and every object of ivory, and every object of most precious wood and bronze and iron and marble, and cinnamon and incense, and fragrant oil and frankincense, and wine and oil, and fine flour and wheat, and cattle and sheep, and horses and carriages, and bodies and lives of men. 

“And the fruit that your being longed for has gone from you. And all your riches and splendour are lost to you, and you shall find them no more, not at all. 

“The merchants of these, those who became rich by her, shall stand at a distance for fear of her torture, weeping and mourning, and saying, ‘Woe! Woe, the great city that was dressed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches was laid waste.’ And every shipmaster, and every passenger, and sailors, and as many as work the sea for their living, stood at a distance, and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ 

“And they threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and mourning, and saying, ‘Woe! Woe, the great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she was laid waste.’ 

“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you set-apart emissaries and prophets, for Elohim has completely avenged you on her!” 

And one mighty messenger picked up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “With such a rush the great city Baḇel shall be thrown down, and shall not be found any more at all.”

501c3 What Is It And How Does It Affect You? – Is Your Church Under IRS Code 501c3?

501c3 What Is It And How Does It Affect You? – Is Your Church Under IRS Code 501c3?

(Plus: List of Top 25 501c3 National Council of Churches Included in Article)

Title 26 section 501c3 is not a church it is an IRS code therefore there are only 501c3 tax exempt religious organizations, in which they are all by legal definition corporations and not churches. What most people don’t know is that, all corporations are creations of the State for the State and by the State, and none can exist without the State’s permission. Their right to exist and practice charitable cause(s) – including religion – derives solely from the State granting the applying “charitable organization” the requested permission and requested legal authority to function. So none of these churches who fall up under this IRS code are serving Messiah, they are serving two masters in which Messiah said you cannot serve two masters. 

These institutions are opposite of the gospel of Messiah, as where Colossians 1:18 teaches Messiah is the head of the Assembly, the head of these churches are the State. So by incorporating as a 501c3, a group of leaders asks the State’s permission to exist, in which they bind themselves by an oath, which in doing so they reject Messiah as their head. The source of any religious organization is suppose to be the Set-Apart Spirit which keeps them within the laws and statutes and commandments of ABBA Father YAHUAH, and not the laws of the State. To become a corporation, is to commit adultery against the head which is Messiah and divorce him, for an idolatry figure known as the State. This is one of the reasons why homes are out of order, because the foundation in which their church is built upon is like a cloud without water, meaning it has no substance. 

So the message that the people get from their religious leaders, is materialistic and hopeful, in which these two combination’s are designed to deprive the minds of people and make them merchandise. Yes merchandise, because the State operates off of goods and services which is why you see these institutions that belong to the State selling all kinds of goods and holding services for money. These religious leaders are nothing more than puppets for the State, if a person wanted to sell cds and tapes on the street, he couldn’t do it because he didn’t apply and pay for a State permit, therefore the act of selling cds and tapes on the street is considered illegal. 

On the contrary, if the person decided to attend a State seminary theologian school, then the State would grant him a certificate to preach, which authorizes him to sell the same cds and tapes he wanted to sell in the streets, now in the church. These religious institutions operate off of government loans and funding, therefore they are required to pay interest upon their loan, but not taxes upon the dollars they accrue off the people. They sell cds and tapes and books to the people, to collect money to not only live off of, but to pay towards their loan from the State. Now this is where ignorance comes in, because most of these religious leaders think they need to become 501c3 in order to be “tax exempt, but what they fail to realize is that churches in the United States of America are already tax-exempt, and donations to churches are tax-deductible already, without ever becoming a 501c3! 

According to the Internal Revenue Code, “a church, its integrated auxiliaries, and conventions and associations of the church are excluded from taxation.” United States Code, Title 26, 508(c)(1)(A). Section 508(c) of the Internal Revenue Code provides that churches are not required to apply for recognition of Section 501(c)(3) status in order to be exempt from federal taxation or to receive tax deductible contributions. Churches are automatically exempt from Federal income tax, and contributions to churches are deductible by donors under section 170. This just goes to show you that, churches don’t have to incorporate to apply for tax-exemptions, and that even if the tax exemptions were not automatic, it is spiritual adultery for them to do so because all such religious corporations accept The State as their head instead of Messiah. 

Only the State can give permission to incorporate, and this new legal entity is under the jurisdiction of the State alone the minute it incorporates. Under U.S. law, all of a corporation’s rights, powers and authority are granted by the State and subject to the State. However, when believers in Messiah regularly assemble for worship, teaching, preaching, etc, they automatically meet the IRS definition of a church without incorporating under State power, or requesting State permission for (and therefore scrutiny of) such activities. There is simply no U.S. law requiring churches to incorporate with The State, and churches are still obeying the “law of the land” by doing all of the above without incorporating. There are, however, many scriptural prohibitions to the Most High’s chosen people “joining,” “covenanting” or being “yoked with” pagan Roman and Babylonian powers and unbelievers, which is the exact definition of a 501c3 incorporation of a church.

Those that form such a covenant with the State enter into an oath ensuring their silence on many scriptural issues, cause 50c3 “churches” sign a waiver to forfeit their 1st Amendment Freedom of Speech rights, and therefore are legally and honor-bound by their oath to NOT teach or preach the entire Word of the Most High. So topics of political means or that could become controversial, 501c3 organizations are promising by their signature never to speak on. John 8:32 says – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. So ask yourself, how can a person be free if they attend a church that falls under the 501c3 code, if under the code the religious leaders are bound to not speak the truth? 

John 4:24 says – YAHUAH is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. So again I say ask yourself, how can anyone who attend these State controlled institutions be worshipping the Father in spirit and truth, if the these institutions are bound by oath to not teach the truth? So who could they be worshipping? You see they be packed out and full, but what type of worshippers are in it and who’s house is it if it’s not the ABBA Father’s in heaven? Let me show you

2 Kings 10:21 – And Jehu sent through all Israel: and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another. 

FYI: They are worshippers of Baal, they attend not the house of prayer which is of the Father in heaven, they attend the house of Baal which they have full from one end to another, they worshipping Satan and don’t even know it in these institutions. You see these TD Jakes and Creflo Dollars and Eddie Longs and Joel Osteen with these big Mega State Churches, and they be full from one end to another, don’t you dare enter into them run Matthew 7:13 teaches that wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Please don’t think the people are going to these churches to hear the truth, they going so that the State preacher can make them feel good about their living conditions. So don’t be fooled when you see alot of people in them, Matthew 7:14 says strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few, I quote again, few, I quote again, few, capitalize now, 

FEW there be that find it. Only a few people will find the path to the truth, the majority is going to burn in hell folks don’t you be moved or deceived by these hypocrites. Any man or hypocrite woman, which ain’t no woman got no business in the first place teaching no bible, you know has attended a State seminary theologian school, they are false do not attend their church you going to hell. They don’t have no spirit of the Most High YAHUAH, they instead have a piece of paper given unto them by the State Seminary theologian school to esteem them high, they preachers of the State for the State by the State. When you get married, you apply for a State marriage license, which you pay for, then you have to wait for the State to approve you for your marriage license, which is the State giving you the right to be married, and not the Most High. 

The State put your marriage married together, therefore it is a three party contract between you and your spouse, and the State in which you were married. That’s how come the State can regulate who gets what if yall divorce because by applying for their State license, you gave them power over all your possessions and assets, and your children in which by applying for the license, the CPS is automatically hired on to your marriage. Wake up folks these institutions are for the devil and worshippers and the preachers of them are ministers of Satan.

2 Corinthians 11:14 – And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 

FYI: Satan aka Baal is masquerading around as if he was the Most High YAHUAH, he is giving these people who don’t follow the commandments of the Most High everything they desire. It is Satan that answers their prayers when they think they praying to the Most High YAHUAH. When you break the commandments of the Most High YAHUAH you commit sin, and you know what sins does? let me show you this.

Isaiah 59:1 – Behold, YAHUAH’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

FYI: When you feel as if your going through a tough time, and everything seems to be falling down on you so much you feel as if your drowning and not going to make it,  YAHUAH The Most High’s hand is not too short that he can’t reach you and save you, he can save you. When you like no one is listening to you and you got so much going on in your life and you want to pray to YAHUAH The Most High but feel as if maybe he won’t hear you cause he got so much going on, YAHUAH The Most High says look my ear is not that burden that I can’t hear your prayer, I can hear you no matter whats going on. Remember I told you that when you break the commandments of YAHUAH the Most High you commit sin, and you know what sins does? let me show you this.

Isaiah 59:2 – But your iniquities have separated between you and your YAHUAH, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

FYI: When you commit sin, you separate yourself from YAHUAH the Most High, and therefore when you going through something and feel like you drowning, YAHUAH the Most High hide his face from you he turn the away and ignore your behind and let you drown, and when you pray, he don’t even hear your prayers because you commit sin. Here all this time your State seminary preachers have been telling you when you commit sin just pray and  YAHUAH the Most High will forgive you, but yet you reading here for yourself the Most High don’t even fool with you not for your own good. You don’t believe it, lets go to the book of Amos.

Amos 9:4 – And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.

FYI: When you break the TORAH (laws) and Statutes and Commandments of YAHUAH the Most High, he will set his eyes upon you for evil and not for good. You got to fear Him in order to be able to love Him, then are you able to keep His Commandments because you fear Him, fearing Him is Loving Him. Lol folks this aint a game these State preachers have you thinking YAHUAH the Most High weak and can be walked, no man no sir, YAHUAH the Most High will kill your behind he ain’t nothing to be played with. Moses warned the people he told them it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of YAHUAH the Most High, so why aren’t these preachers warning the people to repent for their sins, and be converted and Immersed (baptized) in The Name Yahusha and receive The Set-Apart Spirit of YAHUAH The Most High, so they will not fall into the hands of YAHUAH the Most High? 

Why, because they under the 501c3 IRS code which bounds them from teaching the truth and warning the people. All these preachers claiming to be prophets and servants of YAHUAH the Most High, but yet they preaching peach, let me show you something else. The prophet Hananiah spoke of good things to the king and people concerning what YAHUAH the Most High was going to do for them. The prophet Jeremiah was on hand when he spoke these things to the people, Jeremiah said Amein so be it YAHUAH the Most High do so, perform the words which you have prophesied Hananiah.

Question: Then what did Jeremiah say unto this TD Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long and Joel Osteen format of today’s format of a prophet?

Jeremiah 28:7 – Nevertheless hear thou now this word that I speak in thine ears, and in the ears of all the people; 

FYI: Jeremiah said but nevertheless hold on a minute now you listen to the word which I speak to you, and in the presence of all these people who can hear also what I say.

Question: So what Jeremiah tell him?

Jeremiah 28:8 – The prophets that have been before me and before thee of old prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.

Jeremiah 28:9 – The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that YAHUAH hath truly sent him.

FYI: Thank YAHUAH the Most High for his Set-Apart Spirit, Jeremiah came back put him in remembrance. He said the prophets that have been before me and you, they prophesied both against many countries and great kingdoms, of war, and of evil and of pestilence. The prophet that spoke good and peace unto the people, nobody believed him to be of the Most High until what he said come to pass. In which this is totally opposite today, because now when a man speak peace and good things unto the people, the people now automatically revere him as a man of YAHAUAH the Most High, as where before the people only recognized a man to be a prophet of YAHAUH the Most High if he was coming condemning them and countries and kingdoms and wars. You don’t see TD Jakes and non of the rest of them hypocrites, condemning America nor speaking out against war, why because they know if they do they the government will do unto them as it did unto Martin Luther King Jr. who also was preacher, they will kill their behind. 

Which one of them did you hear speak out against the government for not coming to the aide of the hurricane Katrina victims faster? Which one of them did you hear speak out against the government for sending troops down to New Orleans to shoot their own people? Which one of them did you hear about opening the doors of their mansions which have extra beds, and allow some people to sleep in them? Which one of them did you hear about speaking out against the government for murdering their own people on 911? 

Which one of them did you hear speak out about the government invading Iraq and Afghanistan killing innocent people? Which one of them did you hear about speaking out against the government for allowing mercury to be put into these vaccines which is causing autism and children death? None of them folks wake up they are under the IRS Code 501c3 they are paid to shut their mouth and not teach you the truth and not speak out on any issue in opposition against the government. Lyndon B Johnson in 1954 instituted the 501c3 to silence the church and eliminate the significant influence the church had of always shaping public policy. 501c3 churches are prohibited from addressing, in any tangible way, the vital issues of the day, or else the government coming after them for breach of contract and for back taxes which they didn’t charge them as long as they stayed in line and followed the laws which they gave them to uphold. 

501c3 pastors have promised not to discuss political issues including those relating more properly to issues of morality, and then they call the leaders over them such as the President, YAHUAH fearing Believers(Christians) and say people shouldn’t talk about them but instead pray for them, and the people Amein this not knowing the reasons why their pastors revere these hypocrites.

2 Timothy 4:2 – Preach the TORAH (word); be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 

FYI: These preachers are suppose to be preaching the entire TORAH (word) in truth, whether in season or out of season they still are obligated to preach, reprove which is to correct the people’s behavior and get them back in line according to the Scriptures (bible) Ways and Standards, rebuke which they hide behind saying touch not mine anointed lol which they take that totally out of context and I’ll show you. They don’t rebuke no political candidates nor senators or house of representatives or government or people, instead what do they do?

Jeremiah 5:28 – They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.

FYI: They are waxen fat, they getting rich off of the people, they have them sowing seeds just to support the seed they shall sow when they got their wife on her back at home skeeting out seeds. They shinning, tailor made suits with the expensive cuff links, Armani watch on their wrist, alligator shoes on their feet, two to three fancy cars, big mansions with several bedrooms, ahh baby they shining. They overpass the deeds of the wicked, knowing they got folks up in the church straight whoring but they want say nothing because them whores put money in their baskets, they are the ones paying for them to wax fat and shine. 

They telling the folks just pray about it who am I to judge, ain’t nobody perfect so who am I to speak on the deeds of the people, which by doing this they overpass the deeds of the wicked. They know the government is breaking up homes with their child support system, killing children with their vaccines, producing aids and giving them to the people in the Congo, murdering innocent men women and children in Iraq and other countries, giving people high interest loans on their homes then not raising the minimum wage and shipping jobs overseas, then foreclosing on people’s homes, they not saying a word about this injustice being done by America, they judge not the cause of the people, the poor being taken off the street and experimented on at military bases, and yet they say nothing no judging at all. 

Deceive the people by saying the bible says don’t judge, but never read the rest of what the scriptures says after it, cause if they did then the people would know the bible does tell them to judge, but first to cast out the sin out of their life, to be able to judge. The robbing these single mothers playing off of their emotions writing books with topics that only pertain to them, but yet not teaching them how to keep their homes together. For a quick minute, let me give you a little list of the books TD Jakes has put out, and you tell me these titles of his books don’t only appeal to women.

List of Books

Woman Thou Art Loosed

I Can Do Bad By Myself

Start Your Life Over

Recapture Your Innocence

Reposition Yourself

Let Him Go

The Favor Factor

Help I’m Raising My Children Alone

God’s Leading Lady

The Secret Place

Naked and Not Ashamed

Maximize The Moment

So You Call Yourself A Man

Now who in the world do you think these books are directed towards? Women, they make up the majority of these churches and these pimps know a man recognize the game, but they have taken the women away from their head which is the man by the doctrine they teach, that the women sit as sheep following a wolf in shepherd clothing as a mouthpiece for YAHUAH the Most High. In Genesis 3:16  YAHUAH the Most High told the woman that her desire shall be to her husband and he shall rule over thee, but Satan working through the State, therefore the institutions and mouthpiece of the State, which are your 501c3 religious preachers, come as ministers of light using the bible to put doubt in the woman as he did with Eve in the garden. 

Romans 7:2 says – For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. But yet, Jakes comes back and says surely your not bound, for what G-D knows that in the day you become loosed, you will begin to have a mind of your own and think for yourself and will no longer let a man rule over you, surely your not bound. Women listen to this doctrine, and then they take of the fruit of materialism, education and masculinity, why, because now Woman Thou Art Loosed, and without having a head which is a man in the image of the Most High to guide them correctly, the women never realize that Jakes just loosed them from having to submit and obey to the word of the Most High. Satan made them doubt the word of the Most High and caused them to do opposite of what the Most High commanded again. So who are these 501c3 religious leaders, are they ministers of the Most High?

2 Corinthians 11:13 – For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Messiah. 

FYI: They are false prophets, anytime a man or woman claim to be of YAHUAH the Most High and they charging you to hear the word, they are deceitful, because Messiah said freely have you received and freely shall you give. They know you listen to cds and watch tapes and by posters and cloths and concert tickets and books and bracelets, so in order to get you to support them, they put Messiah name on a poster, on cloths, on books and bracelets and t-shirts, and figure if they will pay for cds and tapes, I might as well put the word of YAHUAH the Most High on cds and tapes and sell it to them for a price, they pay lots of money to attend concerts and celebrations, hey I might as well have a Mega fest sell them tickets to come here me and their favorite preachers, hey they pay to see their favorite artists perform together, why should we be left out of the money? They deceitful and appear unto the people as ministers of Messiah, but the Scriptures said no marvel Satan himself appears as an angel of light. So are these ministers of YAHUAH the Most High?

2 Corinthians 11:15 – Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

FYI: So just as Satan appears as an angel of light, so don’t be surprised that his ministers also appear as ministers of righteousness. They come caring, smiling, friendly, hugging, passionate, understanding, intelligent, responsible, trustworthy, giving to the poor, visiting the fatherless and widows, while all along they be ministers of the devil. So check and see if your church is under the 501c3 IRS tax exempt code, and if so, you are following a minister of Satan who appears as a minister of righteousness. 

A significant portion of a 501c3 member’s gifts, tithes, offerings, etc goes directly to the Federal government, rather than to the house of YAHUAH. Lets say a religious worker earns $100 per week in salary (for example). Usually 15-20% of that is taken out before he receives it, as well as the 501c3 employer’s additional contribution to Social Security, Medicare, FICA, etc – an additional 15-20%. So in order to pay a pastor or other worker approximately $80 net income per week, approximately $115-120 has to be taken from the “church coffers” – i.e., from donations intended for YAHUAH’s work. For every salaried “pastor” who earns $30,000 per year, the Federal Government receives approximately $9,000-12,000, taken directly from what 501c3 institution members (believe they) have sacrificed to YAHUAH.

Example

$100 salary = appx $120 expenses from religious institution’s funds, or $80 (net) to income earner, while up to $40 goes to the federal government, taken directly from tithes, gifts, offerings, etc

$1000 salary = appx $1200 expenses from religious institution’s funds, or $800 (net) to income earner, while up to $400 goes to the federal government, taken directly from tithes, gifts, offerings, etc

$30,000 salary = appx $36,000 expenses from religious institution’s funds, or $24,000 (net) to income earner, while up to $12,000 goes to the federal government, taken directly from tithes, gifts, offerings, etc

So again I say check and see if your church is under the 501c3 IRS tax exempt code, and if so, you are following a minister of Satan who appears as a minister of righteousness.

When a Church accepts the 501c3 status, that Church Waives its Freedoms and Rights: 501c3 Churches – EXPOSED

When a Church accepts the 501c3 status, that Church Waives its Freedoms and Rights:

501c3 Churches – EXPOSED 

Shalom to all who seek truth and understanding. The Government owns and runs your Church and its Doctrines!. 

Most churches in America are organized as 501c3 tax-exempt religious organizations. The First Amendment clearly states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”. 

You see, anything that the US Government deems “legal” can’t be spoken of unfavorably by “churches” desiring to keep the sacred exemption of Mister 501c3. It is more important to hold onto that earthly “pearl-of-great price” than to seek the heavenly one. The church is NOT supposed to be part of the Government or answerable to it.

Ephesians 5:24-25 Therefore as the Assembly is subject unto Messiah, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Messiah also loved the Assembly and gave himself for it;

(We see that Messiah is the head of the Assembly (congregation) not man.)

501(c)3 Exposed

The First Amendment clearly places the church outside the jurisdiction of the civil government: Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof.’Religion cannot be free if you have to pay the government, through taxation, to exercise it. Since churches aren’t taxable in the first place, why do so many of them go to the IRS and seek permission to be tax-exempt? It occurs out of:

· Ignorance (“We didn’t know any better”)

· Bandwagon logic (“Everyone else is doing it “)

· Professional advice 

(many attorneys and CPAs recommend it)Does the law require, or even encourage, a church to organize as a 501c3? 

To answer that question let’s turn to what the IRS itself has to say.

Churches Need Not Apply

In order to be considered for tax-exempt status by the IRS, an organization must fill out and submit IRS Form 1023 and 1024. However, note what the IRS says regarding churches and church ministries, in Publication 557 Some organizations are not required to file Form 1023. These include:

Churches, interchurch organizations of local units of a church, conventions or associations of churches, or integrated auxiliaries of a church, such as a men’s or women’s organization, religious school, mission society, or youth group. These organizations are exempt automatically if they meet the requirements of section 501(c)(3). 

When a church accepts the 501c3 status, that church:

· Waives its freedom of speech

· Waives its freedom of religion

· Waives its right to influence legislators and the legislation they craft.

· Waives its constitutionally guaranteed rights.

· Is no longer free to speak to the vital issues of the day.

· It’s controlled with fear, if it doesn’t following IRS guidelines it will lose its tax-exempt status.

· Becomes a State-Church. One need not look far to see that the church’s acceptance of the 501c3, and its significant restrictions, has had devastating consequences to not only the church, but to the entire nation.

Churches are “Automatically Tax-Exempt”

According to IRS Code 508(c)(1)(A): 

Special rules with respect to section 501c3 organizations.

(a) New organizations must notify secretary that they are applying for recognition of section 105c3 status.

(c) Exceptions

(1) Mandatory exceptions. Subsections (a) and (b) shall not apply to –

(A) churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches.

This is referred to as the “mandatory exception” rule. Thus, we see from the IRS’ own publications, and the tax code, that it is completely unnecessary for any church to apply for tax-exempt status. In the IRS’ own words, a church “is automatically tax-exempt.”

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Precepts to Colossinas 1:18:

John 11:25 Yahusha said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

(Messiah is also the head of the Assembly, which is his body. He is also head of the body, the Assembly; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. We see again that Messiah is the head of the Assembly.) 

Who came up with the 501(c)(3)?

Most churches in America have organized as “501c3 tax-exempt religious organizations.” This is a fairly recent trend that has only been going on for about fifty years. Churches were only added to section 501c3 of the tax code in 1954. House Resolution 235 was designed to revise the IRS code to remove restrictions placed on churches and non-profit organizations in 1954 by then-Senator Lyndon Johnson. Prior to 1954, churches and non-profit organizations had no such restrictions on their freedom of speech or their right to speak out in favor or against political issues or candidates. The history of Johnson’s IRS gag order is instructive. It began with what some historians believe to be a fraudulent election of Johnson to the Senate in 1948. 

It has been maintained by both conservative and liberal historians that Lyndon Johnson’s election to the Senate in 1948 was won by massive voter fraud. Known as “Landslide Lyndon,” this aspiring politician was “elected” by only 87 votes. His challenger, Coke Stevenson, challenged his election and presented credible evidence that hundreds of votes for Johnson had been faked. Johnson, however, was successful in blocking Stevenson’s effort by the clever use of “cooperative” court injunctions.

In 1954, Johnson was facing re-election to the Senate and was being aggressively opposed by two non-profit anti-Communist groups that were attacking Johnson’s liberal agenda. In retaliation, Johnson inserted language into the IRS code that prohibited non-profits, including churches, from endorsing or opposing candidates for political office. In effect, Senator Johnson used the power of the go-along Congress and the IRS to silence his opposition. Unfortunately, it worked. Some in Johnson’s staff claimed that Johnson never intended to go after churches, only the two “nonprofits” in Texas. Nevertheless, his sly amendment to the tax code affected every church in America, and it is a violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. 

The legislation proposed by Rep. Jones in the 109th Congress is designed to overturn Johnson’s vindictive gag order that now penalizes churches, churches that dare speak out against government policies and politicians that the churches may deem to be immoral or bad for America. There is no reason for this gag order to remain in effect, but Congress apparently thinks it must perpetuate bad public policy simply because it exists. Organizations like Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, People For The American Way, and The American Civil Liberties Union continue to claim that this Johnson gag order must be upheld to protect “church/state separation.” This is irrational and fails to take into account the entire history of religious freedom in the United States. 

Throughout our nation’s history-both before and after the American Revolution-our nation’s pastors freely spoke out on the political and moral issues of the day. It was their duty and their right under the Constitution to preach against immorality and corruption in the political and the moral realm. Historian James H. Hutson, writing in Religion and the Founding of the American Republic, notes: “Preachers seemed to vie with their brethren in other colonies in arousing their congregations against George III.” And, as Hutson discovered, the House of Representatives sponsored church services in its chambers for nearly 100 years. 

These services only ended when convenient transportation was available to take Members of Congress home for the weekend. It is interesting to observe that our Founding Fathers and our first elected officials didn’t have any notion of “church/state separation,” so vehemently endorsed by Americans United and other modernist groups. Our Founders valued religion and wrote the First Amendment to protect the free expression of religious beliefs-and the freedom to speak out on the moral issues-including those involving politics and politicians. The disservice that Lyndon Johnson did to religious freedom has yet to be undone, but in the current session of Congress, H.R. 235 must be passed-to undo Johnson’s vengeful action against his political opponents. We need to finally exorcise our public policies of the sad legacy of Landslide Lyndon. 

What are the results when a church incorporates and surrenders itself to the jurisdiction of the state?

1) The Church is no longer considered a real institution, but it goes through a transformation and becomes a fictitious (state created) person or institution.

2) The Church comes under the jurisdiction of the state and therefore surrenders its headship to the state.

3) The Church’s chief officers become official representatives of the state by virtue of their corporate charter.

4) The Church must open its books and all practices to the investigation of the state. This would include:

a. Church membership roles;

b. Christian school record;

c. Regulations on all functions of the church and any of its ministries;

d. Church financial records, including all tithing records (names, addresses and amounts);

e. Ministers and churches in courts of law are considered wards of the state by virtue of their charter, including all church members (adults and children).

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of YAHUAH ELOHIYM abideth for ever.

Conclusion

The whole conclusion of showing this information is to inform the world and reveal the truth about the 501c3. We have been heavily deceived by the 501 c3 corporations masquerading as churches out there. I say dump your tax- free privilege, trust the Most High YAHUAH ELOHIYM, preach against transgressions unashamedly and do not hold back (proclaim the evils of baby-slaughtering, sodomy, Bush, politics, Socialism, corruption in gov’t, etc.)

“I am not the only IRS employee who’s wondered why churches go to the government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn’t owe to begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they’ve always had anyway. Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position, but they don’t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would mean to be free of government control” – Nestor, IRS Senior Revenue Officer (ret)

501c3 Accredited Non Profit

501c3 Accredited Non Profit 

According to the Internal Revenue Code, “a church, its integrated auxiliaries, and conventions and associations of the church are excluded from taxation.” United States Code, Title 26, 508(c)(1)(A). Section 508(c) of the Internal Revenue Code provides that churches are not required to apply for recognition of Section 501(c)(3) status in order to be exempt from federal taxation or to receive tax deductible contributions. 

Churches are automatically exempt from Federal income tax, and contributions to churches are deductible by donors under section 170. 

This just goes to show you that, churches don’t have to incorporate to apply for tax-exemptions, and that even if the tax exemptions were not automatic, it is spiritual adultery for them to do so because all such religious corporations accept The State as their head instead of Messiah. 

Only the State can give permission to incorporate, and this new legal entity is under the jurisdiction of the State alone the minute it incorporates. Under U.S. law, all of a corporation’s rights, powers and authority are granted by the State and subject to the State. 

However, when believers in Messiah regularly assemble for worship, teaching, preaching, etc, they automatically meet the IRS definition of a church without incorporating under State power, or requesting State permission for (and therefore scrutiny of) such activities. There is simply no U.S. law requiring churches to incorporate with The State, and churches are still obeying the “law of the land” by doing all of the above without incorporating. 

There are, however, many scriptural prohibitions to the Most High’s chosen people “joining,” “covenanting” or being “yoked with” pagan Roman and Babylonian powers and unbelievers, which is the exact definition of a 501c3 incorporation of a church.

Those that form such a covenant with the State enter into an oath ensuring their silence on many scriptural issues, cause 50c3 “churches” sign a waiver to forfeit their 1st Amendment Freedom of Speech rights, and therefore are legally and honor-bound by their oath to NOT teach or preach the entire Word of the Most High. 

So topics of political means or that could become controversial, 501c3 organizations are promising by their signature never to speak on. John 8:32 says – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 

So ask yourself, how can a person be free if they attend a church that falls under the 501c3 code, if under the code the religious leaders are bound to not speak the truth? 

John 4:24 says – YHWH Elohim is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. So again I say ask yourself, how can anyone who attend these State controlled institutions be worshipping the ABBA Father in spirit and truth, if the these institutions are bound by oath to not teach the truth? So who could they be worshipping?

You see they be packed out and full, but what type of worshippers are in it and who’s house is it if it’s not the Father’s in heaven? Let me show you

2 Kings 10:21 – And Jehu sent through all Israel: and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another. 

FYI: 

They are worshippers of Baal, they attend not the house of prayer which is of the Father in heaven, they attend the house of Baal which they have full from one end to another, they worshipping Satan and don’t even know it in these institutions. 

You see these TD Jakes and Creflo Dollars and Eddie Longs and Joel Osteen with these big Mega State Churches, and they be full from one end to another, don’t you dare enter into them run 

Matthew 7:13 teaches that wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. 

Please don’t think the people are going to these churches to hear the truth, they going so that the State preacher can make them feel good about their living conditions. So don’t be fooled when you see a lot of people in them, 

Matthew 7:14 says strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few, I quote again, few, I quote again, few, capitalize now, FEW there be that find it. 

Only a few people will find the path to the truth, the majority is going to burn in hell folks don’t you be moved or deceived by these hypocrites. Any man or hypocrite woman, which ain’t no woman got no business in the first place teaching no bible, you know has attended a State seminary theologian school, they are false do not attend their church you going to hell. 

They don’t have no spirit of the Most High, they instead have a piece of paper given unto them by the State Seminary theologian school to esteem them high, they preachers of the State for the State by the State. When you get married, you apply for a State marriage license, which you pay for, then you have to wait for the State to approve you for your marriage license, which is the State giving you the right to be married, and not the Most High.

 The State put your marriage married together, therefore it is a three party contract between you and your spouse, and the State in which you were married. 

That’s how come the State can regulate who gets what if yall divorce because by applying for their State license, you gave them power over all your possessions and assets, and your children in which by applying for the license, the CPS is automatically hired on to your marriage. 

Wake up folks these institutions are for the devil and worshippers and the preachers of them are ministers of Satan.

2 Corinthians 11:14 – And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

State Controlled Churches: The 501c3 Deception

State Controlled Churches: The 501c3 Deception

Churches and religious organizations that accept governmental authorization for financial gain, for permission to assemble, etc., are then controlled by the state. They invariably become tools of the government, carrying out the agenda of rulers and spreading state propaganda. Church members themselves often demand their church obtain state recognition in order for their tithes and offerings to be deductible from their personal income tax reports.

The classification 501(c)(3) is a tax exempt status for religious or charitable organizations in the United States. 

While this article repeatedly refers to this particular classification, the warning crosses international boundaries. Any religious organization that is recognized as such by the national government comes under the control of that government. It is then an arm of the state and must comply with state policy or lose the desired recognition.

In August, 2007, KSLA News 12 out of Shreveport, Louisiana, reported on a shocking new tactic used by the United States government in its ongoing destruction of the U.S. Constitution. It was reported that the government had begun training pastors and religious leaders to influence the populace to comply with government demands, stating: “KSLA News 12 has discovered that [in the event of a disaster] the clergy would help the government with potentially their biggest problem: Us.”1

The United States was founded with the deliberate intent of having a country without a king and ensuring the freedom to have a church without a pope. Consequently, the “separation of church and state” has long been a governing principle of laws and policy within the U.S. It is extremely portentous for the government to reach out to religious leaders in an attempt to control the citizenry. Revelation 13 warns of a despotic power that would seek to enforce its own agenda over the entire world:

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:15-17)

It is deeply concerning that the U.S. is already preparing to use clergy to control the populace. Dr. Durell Tuberville is the chaplain for both the Shreveport Fire Department and the Caddo Sheriff’s Office. When asked how clergy from differing denominations would work together for the government in times of crisis, Tuberville said: “The primary thing that we say to anybody is, ‘let’s cooperate and get this thing over with and then we’ll settle the differences once the crisis is over.'”2 Such emphasis on interdenominational uniformity and conformity to government agendas is a danger to individual churches that often have theological beliefs that are contradictory to morally liberal laws and corrupt politics.

People naturally look up to their religious leaders. It is deeply engrained in congregants to trust their pastor, priest or rabbi. Churches have always placed a high value on their unique, distinctive beliefs. It is a primary cause for why so many thousands of denominations exist within Christianity. But when religious leaders start promoting government agendas, differences are deliberately glossed over. Conformity, even at the cost of truth, becomes more important than religious individuality.

The argument religious leaders are told to present to their congregations, is based on an incorrect understanding of Romans 13: “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1, New International Version)3 According to Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show, “an estimated 28,000 pastors were recruited by FEMA/DHS, as part of the Clergy Response Team, and . . . their initial and primary training was to tell their flock to obey the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] version of Romans 13.”4 This incorrect understanding of Romans 13 silences pastors on important issues by arguing that because YAHUAH appointed the government, everything the government says or does should be supported.

The once separate churches of the United States have become joined to the government. They can now be forced to spread government propaganda – even that which conflicts with their denomination’s moral standards. In October, 2014, the city of Houston, Texas got court orders against five pastors who had encouraged their church members to take political action against the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance. This legislation granted civil protection to homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgender citizens. The court orders were extremely broad. They demanded all sermons, speeches, and correspondence (including private text messages) dealing with the legislation, the petition against it, homosexuality, gender issues and the Mayor, Annise Parker. These orders included not just material presented by the pastors, but included anything revised or approved by them or even in their possession.5

Fox News reporter Todd Starnes observed there was a brewing “war over religious liberty in Houston, Texas.”6 In the same report, Starnes shared a comment posted by Parker on Twitter in which she declared that if the pastors preached on political topics, the city had every right to demand the release of all requested materials.

As horrifying as this sounds, Mayor Parker was correct if these pastors worked for churches that were incorporated as 501(c)(3) entities, which most churches are in the United States. The once great principle of “separation of church and state” has been destroyed. True religious liberty has been destroyed by one thing: money.

Creeping Governance

Money is power. YAHUSHA recognized this when He stated: “No man can serve two masters: for either he shall hate the one, and love the other, or else he shall lean to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve [YAHUAH] and riches.” (Matthew 6:24, 1599 Geneva Bible)

Churches have been beguiled and seduced into voluntarily submitting to governmental control. In 1954, then-Senator Lyndon B. Johnson offered tax exempt status to churches as a “favor.” All they had to do was fill out a government form, the 501(c)(3) form, declaring their organization to be a church. 

It was a Trojan horse. By law, churches were tax exempt anyway! The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the agency that collects taxes for the federal government of the United States. One IRS agent, Peter Kershaw wrote:

I am not the only IRS employee who’s wondered why churches go to the government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn’t owe to begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they’ve always had anyway. Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position, but they don’t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would mean to be free of government control.7

Tax exempt status has been the tempting whore to seduce churches into voluntarily giving the government control over what they can and cannot say. In order to retain their official tax exempt status, churches cannot say certain things about the government or even teach certain things that are in conflict with government policy. If they do, their 501(c)(3) status can be revoked and their members will no longer be able to deduct their tithes and offerings from their personal income taxes. This results in fewer contributions given to the support of the church. Religious organizations that accept licenses or some other form of recognition from the state or, as in the U.S., apply for 501(c)(3) status, willingly place themselves under the jurisdiction of the state. Accepting government recognition or 501(c)(3) status willingly surrenders to the state the right to dictate to the church what it can and cannot preach about.

Churches who refuse to conform to government requirements have their 501(c)(3) status revoked. Tax exempt status is of vital importance to church leaders because without it, most of their members will no longer give money in support of the church.

An example of this occurred when the Congressional Black Caucus held a conference to give advice to black churches on how to deal with the rise in voter ID laws to aid in voting for Barack Obama, the United States’ first black president. Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, President of the Congressional Black Caucus, spoke of the conference, explaining to an MSNBC news reporter:

We’ll have representatives from nine denominations who pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people and we are going to, first of all, equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. In fact, we’re going to have the IRS Administrator there, we’re going to have the Attorney General, Eric Holder, there, we’re going to have the lawyers organization from around the country there, the ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union] – all giving ministers guidance on what they can and cannot do.8

When a government gives a license for anything, implied in that very act is the right of that government to remove the license and withdraw permission for whatever action is covered by that license. The power to bestow grants the power to remove. If a government does not give a license for something, it is understood that the individual does not need government permission for that activity and thus, the government does not have any authority in that area. It is wrong for a church to submit their theology or an individual his conscience to the government just to save money.

The apostle Paul warned against being unequally yoked with unbelievers.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? (2 Corinthians 6:14-15)

A religious organization becomes a corporate entity under the regulation of the government when it accepts 501(c)(3) status or by accepting state recognition as a licensed church. Accepting government recognition allows government intrusion that, invariably, ends up changing the policy of the church or organization accepting such recognition from the government. During the Cold War, church leaders in the Soviet Union and its satellites not only changed their teachings to not be offensive to the government, but also even went so far as to betray fellow Christians to the authorities. Nor did this end with the fall of the Iron Curtain. It continues to a greater or lesser degree wherever the state exercises control of the church.

The vast majority of denominational churches, religious organizations and charitable institutions in the United States are actually corporations holding 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. In Amos 3:3, YAHUAH asked, “Can two walk together except they be agreed?” 

To submit to government oversight, is to submit to government control. 

When a church accepts the 501c3 status, that church:

Waives its freedom of speech.

Waives its freedom of religion

Waives its right to influence legislators and the legislation they craft.

Waives its constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Is no longer free to speak to the vital issues of the day.

Becomes controlled by a spirit of fear that if it doesn’t toe the line with the IRS it will lose [revoke] its tax-exempt status.

Becomes a State-Church.9

Such churches are no longer under the leadership of YAHUAH, but under a new master: the state. They take their direction and guidance from the state, not from the word of YAHUAH. Lest there be any doubt that the government’s intended purpose is to exert control over the theology of the incorporated churches, one need only consider Bob Jones University v. United States (461 U.S. 574). In this ruling, the US Supreme Court revealed the government’s intended purpose for the 501c3:

The Court asserts that an exempt organization (one that has become a 501c3) must “demonstrably serve and be in harmony with the public interest,” must have a purpose that comports with “the common community conscience,” and must not act in a manner “affirmatively at odds with the declared position of the whole Government.” Taken together, these passages suggest that the primary function of a tax-exempt organization is to act on behalf of the Government in carrying out governmentally approved policies.10

Submission to the State for Monetary Gain

Churches value their official 501(c)(3) status more than the truth as presented in Scripture. If there were no other reason, this alone would be sufficient to identify these organizations as synagogues of Satan. But there is more. When a church incorporates as a 501(c)(3) entity with the government, it agrees to be bound by all the rules and laws governing 501(c)(3) corporations!

A church which has filed a 501c3 application has agreed to forego its Constitutional right to practice religion without government interference.

. . . A church that has built boundaries around itself by 501c3 rules has consented to diminish [YAHUAH’s] law in favor of private civil law. For example, by agreeing not to speak out and campaign against morally corrupt politicians. They do this in order to ‘enjoy’ an exemption from taxes to which they were immune in the first place . . . .11

It is for this reason that World’s Last Chance has been urging all faithful believers to flee all organized religions. Regardless of the amount of truth that any individual church has, it is truth that is mingled with error. Yah’s true and faithful followers will have nothing to do with Babylon.

It should not be assumed, however, that all of the blame lies with a handful of church leaders at the very top of each denomination. Individual church members are as guilty as the leaders because often it is the members themselves that pressure the leaders to incorporate as 501(c)(3) entities. Again, the motivation is purely financial. While churches may technically be tax exempt, the members’ donations in tithes and offerings cannot be deducted from their personal income tax reports unless they can prove to the satisfaction of the IRS that their charitable donations were given to a legitimate church. 

Although there is no requirement to do so, many churches seek recognition of exempt status from the IRS because such recognition assures church leaders, members and contributors that the church is recognized as exempt and qualifies for related tax benefits. For example, contributors to a church that has been recognized as tax-exempt would know that their contributions are tax-deductible.12

Sadly, truth is sacrificed on the altar of personal gain.

This is a vital issue to the last generation. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36, 37) All organized religions that have submitted to the government for financial gain or temporal security are a part of Babylon and will, in turn, become persecuting powers as depicted in prophecy. John the Revelator was shown a beast, ridden by a “great whore.”

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of YAHUSHA. (Revelation 17:4-6)

“Fornication” is the joining together of that which is not lawful by the law of YAHUAH. Religion in bed with government is fornication. Yah’s people will not be members of any such organizations. 

It is fallen, it is fallen, Babylon that great city, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.

And I heard another voice from heaven say, Go out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues:

For her sins are come up into heaven, and [YAHUAH] hath remembered her iniquities. (Revelation 18:2-5, 1599 Geneva Bible)

501c3 SILENCING THE CHURCHES

501c3 SILENCING THE CHURCHES 

Most churches in America have organized as “501c3 tax-exempt religious organizations.” 

This is a fairly recent trend that has only been going on for about fifty years. 

Churches were only added to section 501c3 of the tax code in 1954. We can thank Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson for that. 

Johnson was no ally of the church. As part of his political agenda, Johnson had it in mind to silence the church and eliminate the significant influence the church had always had on shaping “public policy.”

Although Johnson proffered this as a “favor” to churches, the favor also came with strings attached (more like shackles). One need not look far to see the devastating effects 501c3 acceptance has had to the church, and the consequent restrictions placed upon any 501c3 church. 501c3 churches are prohibited from addressing, in any tangible way, the vital issues of the day.

For a 501c3 church to openly speak out, or organize in opposition to, anything that the government declares “legal,” even if it is immoral (e.g. abortion, homosexuality, etc.), that church will jeopardize its tax exempt status. 

The 501c3 has had a “chilling effect” upon the free speech rights of the church. 

LBJ was a shrewd and cunning politician who seemed to well-appreciate how easily many of the clergy would sell out.

Did the church ever need to seek permission from the government to be exempt from taxes? 

Were churches prior to 1954 taxable? 

No, churches have never been taxable. 

To be taxable a church would first need to be under the jurisdiction, and therefore under the taxing authority, of the government. 

The First Amendment clearly places the church outside the jurisdiction of the civil government: “Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Religion cannot be free if you have to pay the government, through taxation, to exercise it. 

Since churches aren’t taxable in the first place, why do so many of them go to the IRS and seek permission to be tax-exempt? 

It occurs out of:

  • Ignorance (“We didn’t know any better”)
  • Bandwagon logic (“Everyone else is doing it”)
  • Professional advice (many attorneys and CPAs recommend it)

Does the law require, or even encourage, a church to organize as a 501c3? 

To answer that question let’s turn to what the IRS itself has to say.

Churches Need Not Apply

In order to be considered for tax-exempt status by the IRS an organization must fill out and submit IRS Form 1023 and 1024. 

However, note what the IRS says regarding churches and church ministries, in Publication 557:

Some organizations are not required to file Form 1023. These include:

Churches, interchurch organizations of local units of a church, conventions or associations of churches, or integrated auxiliaries of a church, such as a men’s or women’s organization, religious school, mission society, or youth group. 

These organizations are exempt automatically if they meet the requirements of section 501(c)(3).

Churches Are “Automatically Tax-Exempt”

According to IRS Code § 508(c)(1)(A):

Special rules with respect to section 501(c)(3) organizations.

(a) New organizations must notify secretary that they are applying for recognition of section 501(c)(3) status.

(c) Exceptions.

(1) Mandatory exceptions. Subsections (a) and (b) shall not apply to—

(A) churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches.

This is referred to as the “mandatory exception” rule. Thus, we see from the IRS’ own publications, and the tax code, that it is completely unnecessary for any church to apply for tax-exempt status. In the IRS’ own words a church “is automatically tax-exempt.”

Churches Are “Automatically Tax-Deductible”

And what about tax-deductibility? 

Doesn’t a church still need to become a 501c3 so that contributions to it can be taken as a tax deduction? 

The answer is no! 

According to IRS Publication 526:

Organizations That Qualify To Receive Deductible Contributions

You can deduct your contributions only if you make them to a qualified organization. To become a qualified organization, most organizations other than churches and governments, as described below, must apply to the IRS.

In the IRS’ own words a church “is automatically tax-deductible.”

Churches Have a Mandatory Exception To Filing Tax Returns

Not only is it completely unnecessary for any church to seek 501c3 status, to do so becomes a grant of jurisdiction to the IRS by any church that obtains that State favor. 

In the words of Steve Nestor, IRS Sr. Revenue Officer (ret.):

“I am not the only IRS employee who’s wondered why churches go to the government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn’t owe to begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they’ve always had anyway. Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position, but they don’t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would mean to be free of government control.”

Image of The Beast: 501c3 Government-Registered Churches

Image of the beast: 501c3 government-registered churches

This video will show how the modern American tax code titled “501c3” is in fact the means by which the churches in America will bring about the image of the beast in Rome. It also illustrates how the American government has the “power to give life unto the image of beast.” 

Speaking of the US — the second beast of Revelation 13 — it is written in Revelation 13:15, And he (US) had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak (legislate), and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

By the grace and love of the Most High, if you’re a member of a 501c3 government-registered church, including the Protestant churches and the SDA, do you still want to be a member of such a church, which is an image of the Vatican?
