But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.Matthew 15:13-14
Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!Matthew 23:16
And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?Luke 6:39
And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.John 9:39-41
Antichrist religion and Antichrist government both have followers. They are blind themselves and are only leading those that are spiritually blind as well. It’s like the false idols that some made in the Old Testament. They have eyes, but they see not. They have ears, but they hear not. Those that make the idols are like them. Spiritually blind and spiritually deaf. It’s not that they couldn’t see or hear if they really wanted to, but the state of their heart prevents them from doing so. The selfishness in their heart has caused their blindness. They desperately need a new heart of flesh, but until it turns to the Lord, there will be no victory.
The blind leading the blind is pretty comical if it weren’t so deadly serious. The blind leaders say that they have a vision for the people. That vision is death and destruction. Blindness implies darkness. Those who are blind are not in the light. Spiritually, the light is understanding of the Truth of God’s Word. The blind leaders are unable to rightly divide the Word of Truth, so they do what the flesh permits them to do: twist the Word of God to make it say things that it never intended to say. This is how the blind leaders lead the masses into spiritual blindness. The leaders like the tradition of the Bible. After all, it is old, it can be traced to antiquity. Yet, they refuse the Spirit that inspired the Bible. There is no Truth or love or holiness in them or the masses. The entrance of the Word would bring them the light to see, but there they are, groping blindly in the dark. Ever learning and unable to come to the knowledge of the Truth.
Notice that the Father God did not plant these twin beasts of Antichrist religion and Antichrist government. Their spiritual father did. That is, the devil. He is the spirit at work in the children of disobedience. The two beasts will be plucked up on judgment day. Until then, the tares grow among the wheat. The unrighteous grow next to the righteous. Yet, the righteous are not blind and refuse to follow blind leaders of selfishness. True disciples of Christ will only follow the Shepherd and those that Christ has appointed over them to lead them in the ways of sacrificial love.
Jesus didn’t say to try to get involved with the two beasts. He said LET THEM ALONE. When you leave something alone that means that you don’t mess with it or touch it. Leave it be. Let the two beasts continue on in their blindness. The spiritual kingdom of God is operating separately from the two beasts. Both kingdoms are looking for people to follow their ways. The one kingdom to selfishness and blindness, the other kingdom to love and spiritual vision. It has pleased God that both kingdoms should mutually exist in the world at the same time. God wants to get a good long look at the people who call themselves Christians to see if there is any truth in that statement. He is extending mercy, waiting for people to heed His cry to come out from among the beasts and to be separated unto the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are to pray for the leaders and masses that follow Antichrist religion and Antichrist government. We are to speak the truth in love to them when God opens those doors. Very few in the system will want the Truth of what we have to share, but those that have ears to hear will come out of them and join the kingdom of God. God is so loving that He will withhold judgment for a long time if it means just one more son or daughter will be added to His kingdom.
The two beasts say WE SEE! We have light! We have illumination! We have a plan for you and your family! Come and follow us! We know where we are going! Yet they are blind and death clings to them. The masses are looking for someone to follow. Someone other than Jesus. Anyone that claims to have vision and discernment they will listen to! It doesn’t matter how crazy or irrational or illogical their reasoning is. If you’ve got empty words that promise much but deliver little, we will follow you! Show us the way oh wise leaders! Teach us to love by doing selfishness and wickedness! We want what you have! The ditch Jesus spoke of is truly the lake of fire, where both the two beasts and the masses will be for all eternity. They will burn with torment as the day of Christ will wipe away all their excuses for being blind. They will see themselves as they truly are and it is that knowledge that will torment them endlessly. Oh Christian, take your walk with Christ seriously! Judgment must begin at the house of God! Make sure you have a love for the Truth and a love for Jesus. Make sure you are following the Bridegroom and His servants. This is life and death!
Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.1 Peter 5:2-3
For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.Titus 1:10-11
He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.Acts 24:26
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. And the Pharisees also, who were covetous (lovers of money), heard all these things: and they derided him.Luke 16:13-14
And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them. And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.Mark 14:10-11
Both Antichrist religion and Antichrist government are lovers of money. They love it so. When the masses buy their lies and give them money, it empowers them to do things that will ensure that the masses keep following them. Antichrist government even has the authority to print money that is backed by nothing but the reputation of the government! This is where inflation comes from. In a society that is on the gold or silver standard, there is no inflation, because the money is backed by genuine riches and not empty promises.
Money itself is not evil, but it is how one uses it that determines whether they are evil or not. The love of money is the root of all evil, says the Scripture. The two beasts make merchandise out of the masses. They see them not as people, but as cows that they get to milk until the udders run dry. After that, they will slaughter the cows and sell their dead carcasses to extract the maximum profit from them. After that, they will provide government coffins at a low low price and charge for the funeral services provided by their friend Antichrist religion. The pastor or priest or bishop will stand there and tell everyone that the dead carcass is in the loving arms of Jesus now. Oh it’s a smooth system, founded on lies, founded on lust for money.
When Antichrist religion stands there and says that if you TITHE you will get a hundredfold back, they are LYING to the people. The truth is, Antichrist religion is desperate for money and will say ANYTHING to get it. They will preach Scriptures from the Old Testament about living under the law and use it to extract money from those who are supposed to be living under grace. Will a man rob me? I mean, God? Yet you have robbed me in tithes and offerings! Pay me what thou owes me! I am feeding you the lies you want to hear, now come due with your payment and God will BLESS YOU! You are financing MINISTRY after all. This is GOD’s WORK. We need 200 million dollars to do what could have been done for 5,000 dollars. WE NEED YOUR MONEY RIGHT NOW! We are in danger of going off the air if we don’t get 20 million donations of 1,000 dollars each! We are in danger of having to fly on public planes to travel! We need jets! We need cars! We need mansions! Pay us what you owe us and GOD WILL BLESS YOU. The religious beast looks like a lamb but speaks like a dragon. If you are of a discerning heart, you can almost stop and hear the lust in their voice. Don’t let the two beasts make merchandise out of you. The Word says to pay taxes to government but you need not tithe to Antichrist religion. Giving is the New Testament teaching. Give away as much as you can! But give to genuine needs, not greedy “shepherds” that need to line their bank accounts. Don’t give to the Catholic church so they can have another golden idol in the Vatican.
Both Antichrist religion and Antichrist government are known by their extravagant ways. They throw money around and waste it because they know they can keep extracting it from the masses. It’s a never-ending cash machine! They spend it on buildings and special programs and outreaches. They buy mansions and cars and souls of men. Price is no object. They freely bribe others in the system. Notice how they had plenty of money in the treasury in order to bribe Judas to betray Jesus. They had plenty of money in order to pay off the guards to LIE that the disciples stole the body of Jesus. The story of the poor widow giving two mites shows that many people were giving them money from their abundance. Whenever money runs low, just lie some more! Make some more empty promises! Print money without gold to back it. After all, inflation hurts the people, not the government who gets to spend it before the inflation happens. Look at how much money is spent to win elections in government! Look at how many empty promises (LIES) are made in order to secure the votes. Both beasts are businesses. The most successful businesses on earth because they really know how to rape and plunder their victims. Their victims love it so, for they feel safe in the arms of the two powerful beasts. They truly are Antichrist. Opposing Christ by taking His place in the lives of the people. Imitating Christ for power and lust and money. It’s a sham. Come out from among them says the Lord! Be not partakers of their plagues! Judgment is surely due for all their wickedness. Keep yourself unspotted from the world and its systems. Stay separate in your words and actions. Live a holy life and God will bless you!
