When the church removes the Word of God and the Gospel of Christ from their ministry, there isn’t much left to believe. It strips away the miracles, the resurrection, the ascension into Heaven, and God as the creator of all things. The Bible is nothing more to them than a book of parables. Ezekiel was dealing with a church like that and said, ” “Sovereign Lord, they are saying of me, ‘Isn’t he just telling parables?’” The church is very quick to believe in the healing miracles and other miraculous signs of the beast. But they refuse to say it is of the mark of the beast even while rejecting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Miracles were also done by the leaders of Egypt to try counter the miracles of God, but in the end, God has the victory through Jesus Christ. God doesn’t make Himself available to those who testify to the miracles and at the same time deny the power of God.

“Son of man, speak to the elders of Israel and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Have you come to inquire of me? As surely as I live, I will not let you inquire of me, declares the Sovereign Lord.’” Ezekiel 20:3

Ancestors of Today’s Church
The ancestors of the church of today are those who rebelled against God while in the wilderness. God swore to them that, “I am the Lord your God,” and promised to lead them out of captivity into a land flowing with milk and honey, the most beautiful of all lands. He asked each individual to get rid of vile images and not to join themselves with the idols of their captors. Instead, they did the very opposite and God should have punished them for it. Rather than punish them with His wrath, He led them into the wilderness. In the wilderness He gave them His laws to teach them the way of life in God. They were also given the Sabbaths as a sign that God made them Holy. The ancestors of today’s church deviated from God’s Church and found themselves in a wilderness. In that wilderness, they were supposed to learn about the life found in God.

“With uplifted hand I said to them, “I am the Lord your God.” On that day I swore to them that I would bring them out of Egypt into a land I had searched out for them, a land flowing with milk and honey, the most beautiful of all lands. And I said to them, “Each of you, get rid of the vile images you have set your eyes on, and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.” “‘But they rebelled against me and would not listen to me; they did not get rid of the vile images they had set their eyes on, nor did they forsake the idols of Egypt.” Ezekiel 20:5-8

Rebellion of Today’s Church
Although the church is supposed to be learning more about God’s word of life in this wilderness of 2022, they rebel. They reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ that teaches about life in God, the resurrection, and eternal life. They have utterly desecrated Sundays and have turned them into the day of the beast instead of the Lord’s Day. The church services are predominantly filled with human robots and not those who worship God’s Son Jesus Christ. They use Sundays to flood restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping centers and are menacing to human sentiments and the Spirit of Christ. Sundays are used to worship the beast by playing a role in establishing the dominance of the mark of the beast in society. Instead of totally pouring out His wrath on them by totally destroying them, He is letting it be. But that fallen church will not enter into the New Jerusalem where everlasting life is found. They have devoted themselves to the mark and have rejected Jesus Christ. God urges the children not to follow their parent’s example, to keep the Word of God, and to keep Sundays Holy.

“‘Yet the people of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness. They did not follow my decrees but rejected my laws—by which the person who obeys them will live—and they utterly desecrated my Sabbaths.” Ezekiel 20:13

Children Rebellious of Gospel of Jesus Christ
As adorable, intelligent, talented, and adept that the youth are these days they are not walking according to God’s word of life. The internal government that inspires thoughts, feelings, and behaviors is part of who they are. The children of today are the human robots of tomorrow. All that they know is the mark of the beast, and rebellion against the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a part of who they are. Sundays are desecrated by them as the church becomes a center for the activity and purpose of those living by the mark. The laws that they have now will not bring them through the doors of the New Jerusalem and they will not have everlasting life. They sacrifice their own children to the directives of the internal government.

“‘But the children rebelled against me: They did not follow my decrees, they were not careful to keep my laws, of which I said, “The person who obeys them will live by them,” and they desecrated my Sabbaths.” Ezekiel 20:21

Today’s Church Blasphemes God
When they entered the land promised, the ancestors of the fallen church blasphemed God by being unfaithful to Him. They worshipped wherever they saw a high hill or leafy tree. Likewise, the church of today is unfaithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They worship wherever they feel inspired and rewarded but are not worshipping God, the Father of Jesus. The internal rewards of the internal government are the leafy trees and high hills that they worship on. The mark of the beast guides their worship.

“When I brought them into the land, I had sworn to give them and they saw any high hill or any leafy tree, there they offered their sacrifices, made offerings that aroused my anger, presented their fragrant incense and poured out their drink offerings.” Ezekiel 20:28

The Church Will Never Be Part of The New Global Oder
Today’s church wants to blend in with the goals of local, state, national, and global government. But the goal is to eliminate religion from society and usher in the new god, the mark of the beast, the system composed of human robots. The new global government replaces all existing governments and religions. The church will never be “hip” because the system of internal government vehemently opposes human sentiments that live through the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Because the church tries to be a part of the new government, God’s wrath will be on them. It will find itself in the wilderness of the nations and scattered all around the globe. It is there in that global wilderness where God’s wrath will be felt. Even then, some will be spared. Those who refuse to revolt and rebel against the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be spared.

“‘You say, “We want to be like the nations, like the peoples of the world, who serve wood and stone.” But what you have in mind will never happen. As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will reign over you with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath.” Ezekiel 20:32

Redeemed Enter the Promised Land of the New Jerusalem
God has a plan for Israel, as we see even to this date. For us, we are adopted into God’s family through Jesus Christ. Through Jesus Christ we will be joined together with them in the New Jerusalem. Our redemption comes through the Cross of Jesus Christ by accepting God’s Son and rejecting the mark of the beast. Whatever we have done in the past, whatever delusion we might have fell under through the internal government, there is forgiveness in Jesus’s name. It is then that we listen to the Word of God and uplift His Holy name. All of the redeemed, all those who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ, all of God’s people will serve God and He will accept them. Everyone will offer to Him the very best gifts, offerings, and Holy sacrifices. The New Jerusalem will be full of the sweetness of praise and worship. We will be a sweet incense to God when He gathers His people from all around the world. We will rule over the nations with the Lord Jesus Christ. We will bow humbly before Him for His mercy and grace.

“‘As for you, people of Israel, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Go and serve your idols, every one of you! But afterward you will surely listen to me and no longer profane my Holy name with your gifts and idols. For on my Holy mountain, the high mountain of Israel, declares the Sovereign Lord, there in the land all the people of Israel will serve me, and there I will accept them.” Ezekiel 20:39-40

Eternal Fires of Punishment
Those who reject Jesus Christ and live for the mark of the beast (the human robots), will suffer God’s wrath in the eternal fires.

“The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward the south; preach against the south and prophesy against the forest of the southland. Say to the southern forest: ‘Hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am about to set fire to you, and it will consume all your trees, both green and dry. The blazing flame will not be quenched, and every face from south to north will be scorched by it. Everyone will see that I the Lord have kindled it; it will not be quenched.’” Ezekiel 20:45-48
