Here is just one example. Prior to Judah being taken into captivity to Babylon they were warned by the prophets sent by YHWH to give up their paganism and false idols. The leadership refused to rid the land of paganism and they were conquered by Babylon and taken out of their land. Not everyone who was taken was practicing paganism. We have the biblical stories of people such as Ezekiel, Daniel and then the famous story of the fiery furnace of Shadrack, Mesheck and Abendigo. Those men (and many others) were great, godly men who followed YHWH and His laws and commands. Since they were under the leadership of ungodly men who practiced paganism and who refused to remove it from the land, they were punished right along with the rest of them.
People who are in churches today are held to that same accountability. Are you in a church that:
- Believes in and keeps Christmas
- Believes in and keeps Easter
- Believes in and keeps saints days
- Has a Halloween or Harvest festival celebration
- Has a Nicolatian hierarchy for the church leadership
- Sunrise services
- Meets on sun-days instead of keeping YHWH's set-apart Sabbath
- Does not keep YHWH's set-apart Feast Days
If so, I would strongly suggest that you end your membership with them. If you would like a deeper understand of all of these things listed above please visit www.infiniteabundance.us It is imperative that you find out the truth about all of these things and start living your life according to YHWH's Word rather than the word of men and their doctrine.
Praying that you search out the truth of His Word and make the choice to follow Him no matter what. Remember even Yahshua said that it wouldn't be easy. That following Him meant trials and persecution. Most people think I'm strange or weird. I don't want to be like the majority. I want to be set-apart for Him. I'm willing to stand up for the truth no matter what that means. I hope you are as well.
