NOT A SYSTEM, A SAVIOUR




"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." -Titus 3:3-7 KJV. 
Salvation is not in a system, nor in a system of organized religious works, nor a system of doctrines and traditions of men. Salvation is in a Saviour. Salvation is when the kindness and love of God toward man appeared in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. "Not by works of righteousness we have done", but according to God's mercy He saves us, and that through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Not reforming the flesh, but by the "washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost" which God "shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour". We cannot justify ourselves before God nor man, we are sinners. By God's grace sinners are justified, and made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. A whole new creature! Only in Christ Jesus Himself is their eternal life. There is no other God, no other Saviour.
"I, even I, am the Lord, and beside me there is no Saviour." - Isaiah 43:11 KJV. 
Vain religion would have men in a system, doing works of righteousness, through systems of organized religion, loading souls down with the heavy doctrines and traditions of mere men. There is no salvation in these things whatsoever. 
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." - Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV. 
Salvation is not in a system.
Salvation is in the Saviour.

COME OUT


When professing believers of the Lord Jesus think they can participate in pagan, evil holidays, religious services, and worldly events, with all it's vanity, entertainments, amusements, parties, and the like... they are deceiving their own selves.  
"But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils; Ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils." - 1 Cor 10:20-21 KJV.
Loving these things of the world, partaking of them, is fellowship with devils. It's called IDOLATRY. a thing which God hates and a thing God will judge. No, one cannot "Christianize" these things. God has no part in them. It is a thing accursed in the eyes of the Lord. No one who professes the name of the Lord Jesus Christ can justify themselves in these things. Jesus speaking..."And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Is the person, place, or thing you love highly esteemed among men? Does the world love them, love it? It is an ABOMINATION is the sight of God. The lot of Christendom entertains devils right in their churches in these last days, mixing it up with the world, being, looking, sounding like the world. Seducing spirits and doctrines of devils! It's all a stage show just like the world. It's all IDOLATRY.  
"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? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God." - 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 7:1 KJV. 
Note the religious context of these verses. 
Fellowship...communion...concord...agreement...with devils? God forbid! Be ye not yoked with unbelievers in these things, come out and be ye separate, saith the Lord Himself. One cannot fellowship with devils, and say they have fellowship with believers in the Lord Jesus, with the Lord Himself. I do not care what "church" one goes to. The mass of Christendom, false Christianity, is ACCURSED. One cannot go out into the world and drink the cup of devils, and come back to drink the cup of the Lord. One cannot drink these cups at the same time, either. The will of the Lord is this..."I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils."
Come out.
