What is Deconstruction?

Our culture often creates new words to define current experiences when history has already recorded the same experience with a word we have discarded. A good example of this is the names of diseases of the past that we rename and assume are new illnesses.  The nation of America is having an experience with their Christian faith that some people may think has never happened before due to new names being used to describe biblical occurrences that are two millenniums old.   Deconstruction of faith is a term being used to identify an experience of losing or divesting belief in past Christian faith.  This new word is not really necessary because it parallels what the old saints used to call backsliding, apostasy or heresy; all biblical terms that well describe what is happening now.  What many are actually referring to and what many past “Christians” are experiencing is “falling away” or the bible term apostasy.  Either term refers to a Christian believer who reverts back to pre-conversion habits or fall back into sin, renunciation of religion and turns from God.  It is such a horrible thing to reject Christ and go back into unbelief but people have done it in the past and are still doing it.  Warnings were given against this condition in scripture:

Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. Heb 3:12 

For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; Heb 3:14 

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2Th 2:3 

Those that claim they are deconstructing their faith are in the process of denying what they formerly believed.  It is difficult to denounce one’s previous faith but if that faith is gone, it may very well be that it was never on a solid foundation to start with.  Christianity is the most popular religion in America and many have accepted the faith from childhood, as did I, without really understanding what it required.  There may be many reasons why people falsely state they are a Christian whether for social connections, marriage, family religion, naiveté, misunderstanding or profession.  For them it may be no big deal to deny the faith at some point.

For anyone who surely made a solemn commitment to Christ and understood the bible and its warning of rejecting Christ; deconstructing or turning from Christ is a pretty big deal that they would not take lightly.  The book of Hebrews states: “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised … (Heb 10:23… For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins (Heb 10:26).”  The word “deconstruction” of faith seems to be most popular in the evangelical movement, where they reexamine previous beliefs.  It would not be too surprising for those who accepted the faith lightly by the thousands at rallies, revivals and spiritual retreats to now state that they are uncertain of their faith by the thousands.  Conversion to faith in Christ should always be followed up by doctrinal teaching and reinforcement by mature Christians.  Baby Christian should not be simply left to fend for themselves through all the attacks that are bound to come from the enemy of the faith.  Without assistance and fellowship, any immature Christian might fall or be led away from the faith.  I can personally attest though that if one has a true conversion and desire for Christ, the Holy Spirit will lead that new believer from grace to grace. 

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Joh 16:13 

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out Joh 6:37 

End Time Deception

Jesus taught that the day would come when the wheat and the tare would be manifested and separated.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. Mat 13:30 

Apostle Peter helped us to understand the times of the end because some of the saints in his day thought they might have missed the rapture of the church and he dealt with their unbelief.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2Th 2:3 

Peter disclosed the progression of events that would occur before the rapture would come so that people would not lose faith. Important to the gospel is developing of faith in the return of Christ to receive the church unto Himself. Peter stated that there would be a great falling away of faith in the Christian body of believers before the rapture and afterward the man or sin would be manifested. Peter said it was the Holy Spirit that withheld the man of sin or the anti-Christ from being revealed.  As long as the saints or Spirit-filled believers remain here the anti-Christ cannot be revealed.  What people need to understand is that the scripture goes on to say that there are many anti-Christs here already.  What we are seeing is the final anti-Christ trying to break forth but he cannot until God removes His church.

There was a time not too long ago when the church did much teaching about the end times and how the anti-Christ spirit would arise and deceive many people.  Believers knew the signs well but these new preachers are more focused on living in luxury in the earth to teach about the hereafter. The early church was seeing martyrdoms on a regular basis and needed to have their hope anchored in truth.  The new false teaching has greatly deceived churchgoers and prepared them to receive Satan’s lie. 

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2Th 2:3-4

We are living in a time of deceit and that is why there is so much falling away or deconstructing of faith.  Evangelical and charismatic false teachers have led many people to live for today only.  Others have taught belief in a lie that: “Christ can’t return to earth until Christians form a ‘militant’ army — under the leadership of modern apostles and prophets — that will physically subdue the earth and start to establish God’s kingdom in the earth’s governments.”  Jesus never said that.  John preached that the kingdom was coming but Jesus came to Jerusalem and said the kingdom is nigh at hand and He advised believers to enter in.  Jesus ushered in the kingdom.  “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand (Mt 4:17).”  If you were taught that you had to fight to bring Christ’s kingdom to earth, I would understand your frustration.  Christ is the one who fought to bring His kingdom to earth and He has already done it.  Believers can enter His kingdom now by faith.  Jesus taught:  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Mt 6:33).”  Notice in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus stated that the kingdom of heaven belonged to (Mt 5:3) the poor in spirit, the persecuted, those that mourn, the peacemakers, etc.  Jesus stated that “theirs is the kingdom”, not that they had to subdue all the evil doers on earth to get it.  The evil we subdue is within ourselves and we overcome the evil in others through showing the love of Christ for them.  It was Jesus’ mission to overcome Satan and the world (Joh 16:33) and He has fulfilled it (Joh19:30). Jesus told Peter to put up his sword because those who lived by the sword would die by the sword.

People are constantly asking how did we get here and it is understandable that the secular community would ask that question, but the church should know the answer. 

Godlessness in the Last Days

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.  2Ti 3:1-7

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 11 Pe3:3-4

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.  Mat 24:23-25 

The scriptures rightly prophesied things we have witnessed with our own eyes.  Preachers should make it clearer to believers.  Matthew 24 revealed that false teachers would come and lead people astray.  What is surprising is the practice of not identifying anyone as false teachers.  That practice gave false teachers more authenticity because they were accepted rather than being called out.  Along the way certain men arose and told the church how to operate for profitability and churches went along with it.  Churches became cookie cutters of one another. Churches began to focus more on the number of people in attendance and prosperity instead of Christ.  They lost their mission.

This unity of churches and messages in falsehood was further endorsed by nationwide television and worldwide broadcasts that confirmed each other’s apostasy.  This was the mechanism that easily endorsed Donald Trump for president of the United States.  Once all the churches were committed to endorsing one another and there was basically no dissension; it worked perfectly into the enemy plan to set up an anti-Christ figure to run the show.  He did not have to be smart, spiritual or charismatic.  Those supporting him would prop up his agenda and authenticate him.  They told him he was a born again Christian.  They told him he was their biblical Cyrus.  They approved him as their leader and then told him what to do.  They laid hands on him to empower him with their spiritual power and then planned how to control him from behind the scenes to get their own portion of wealth, power and honor.  Christian ethic has been compromised as a casualty of war against their common enemies and to obtain the common goal of power and wealth. 

You might recognize some of these recent practices of evangelical church leaders but it is also described in end-times scriptures of Daniel, Matthew, and Revelations as the church joining in with the anti-Christ rule.  The Spirit of God led me to observe its unfolding as the “church” compromised itself for wealth and then with political leaders to hide their wealth and stay in power. I have written about it along the way on my website.  The church began to endorse Hollywood and Hollywood endorsed the church until there was no difference between the actors in Hollywood and the actors in the church.  Government came to church and took over the pulpit and preachers made agreements with secular government leaders.  The line between the sacred and the secular was removed.  Everybody became acceptable.  Everybody was loved and accepted for their fleshly value to society, except without God’s approval.  God says everyone is loved (Joh 3:16), but everyone is not acceptable in God’s sight.  God makes a difference between the sacred and the secular. That is why we are taught to watch and pray.

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. 2Co 6:14-18

We live in an environment in America where everyone wants to be accepted regardless of how they behave and our community has made it so.  Churches refuse to call out sin because the pastors want to be accepted in order to get their financial needs met.  It is the failure of churches to live by faith and call out sin that has eliminated the moral boundaries of our society so that now everyone is accepted regardless of behavior.  Is it any wonder now that preachers are dating the congregation, political leaders are coating the church, and rock ‘n rollers claim salvation.  False leaders have become too big and famous for anyone to call them out, except God still will.

For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. Mic 1:3 

Anti-Christ System in the World

With guidelines removed in the world and the church, it allows the devil free range to do whatever he wants.  If I could paint you a picture of Sodom and Gomorrah before destruction, it would look much like America today.  You would see people running from house-to-house frolicking, dancing in the streets, enjoying pleasure and violence at will without restraint.  In our day, the Republican Party claims to be trying to restore some of God’s guidelines in certain areas like abortion, but they are breaking rules themselves while in hypocrisy claiming Christ and racial superiority. 

Both the church and government seem to have lost their moral compass, but there is a group that is prepared to lead in the midst of this crisis because they concocted it.  While we may be upset over the chaos, there was an evangelical/charismatic group who desired and had advance plans for this time of crisis where they could come and take control under their (Seven Mountain Doctrine*).  That is not a Christian agenda.  It is white nationalism, white supremacy and the anti-Christ agenda.  Christians need to know that these individuals are not true Christians and citizens need to know that what they do is not legal.  They are only using Christianity as a cover for their goal of personal power.  So they are really insurrectionists, seditionists, treacherous, apostates and Satanists.  Spirit of Error (wordpress.com) reports that Bill Hamon a Charismatic General teaches Christians use of a militant army: “Hamon teaches that Christ can’t return to earth until Christians form a “militant” army — under the leadership of modern apostles and prophets — that will physically subdue the earth and start to establish God’s kingdom in the earth’s governments.”  These leaders set up Donald Trump as their symbolic head and had already organized the nation into sector states to respond to their leadership.  Trump as president had department heads who would obey his commands.  The charismatic leaders believed that their leadership should be over seven public areas they called mountains of:1) Education, 2) Religion, 3) Family, 4) Business, 5) Government/Military, 6) Arts/Entertainment,  and 7) Media.  They also have designated what they call prayer generals over each American state that would respond to their leadership commands.  This is their Seven Mountain teaching *that can be readily found on the web. Their teaching has gone global as well giving these leaders a global audience and a white ruling global agenda.  This teaching has been around for years and that united with the militant personnel revealed on January 6th gives them an ability to carry out their plan now or later if the Christian community does not denounce what is a Satanist move against Christ.  White Christian churches are supporting leaders who have supported this agenda to advance white culture contrary to Christian doctrine.  What they have been successful in setting up is what the bible describes as an anti-Christ system.  The power grab that failed in Germany and in other places, Americans have decided to perfect. And while churchgoers played church, Satan has made his plan to buy them wholesale from their false leaders.  The plan is global and the threat is real.

January 6th Hearings

The January 6 Hearings have carefully exposed the plan of President Trump to take over another term and permanent leadership of the nation and it has shocked some viewers.  What the hearings did not expose is that the governmental power and the religious groups were connected to subdue the nation for power and wealth as the President ruled, with them by his side. Whereas the January 6 Committee was unconcerned about the religious aspect of the plan; it was the unseen wind in the sail of the insurrectionists because it gave them their cause and spirit to fight.  It was a well thought out plan to take over control of the nation through government and church as the early church leaders predicted would happen under an anti-Christ spirit and man of sin.  America is not the first nation to attempt to give Satan a victory over God and His people but God knows in advance the plans of the devil and has set up His counterplan in eternity. 

The American people may have been surprised at the details of the planned physical battle but the church should not have been surprised because the anti-Christ union of the church and state is foretold in scripture and it has been acting out in public for decades.  The white Charismatic and evangelical churches have been preparing the church body with spiritual lies and attaching it to the name of Jesus as they travelled nationally and international.  People have been indoctrinated with a lie and that is why it is so difficult to persuade some people to the truth.  It is cultic and it is also a spirit or error (1Jn 4:6).  Many people readily accepted the lie about Trump being a believer, called of Christ to rule, and endorsed by God because they were set up and manipulated in false churches to accept it.  They were not just set up by their false leaders, but God allowed them to believe and fall for the lie because they would not accept the truth.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  2Th 2:8-12  

It seems strange that the unbelieving world was more alert to Trump’s scheme than the believers.  The scriptures have revealed that God Himself allows these people to believe a lie about their chosen messiah because they would not believe the truth about Jesus.  The same error caused the Jews to miss the first coming of Christ.  There are many articles and writers who have taken the time to resist the evangelical embrace of Trump as a god figure, laughed as Trump’s Golden statue and his arrogant insistence on being President of the United States after being impeached twice; but if the true Christians do not do more than the Christians of Hitler’s era, we may experience the same .  We must all take a stand against what we know to be wrong and not depend on only leaders to do it for us.  Too many leaders in this generation have their own agenda and Christ has given every believer their own connection to God through the Holy Spirit to save themselves from this untoward generation (Act 2:40). When the devil thinks he is winning, God is still controlling the narrative to discipline and expose the wicked. 

Past World Tyrants Who Failed

God will stop the devil from his plan in America as He did in Germany, Rome, Greece, Italy, Russia and so many others places where some tyrant thought to establish himself as god through dictatorship like:  Adolf Hitler of Germany, Mao Zedong of China, Joseph Stalin of Russia, Pol Pot of Cambodia, Leopold II of the Congo, Kim II-Sung of North Korea, Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Idi Amin of Uganda, Mengistu Haile Mariam of Ethiopia, or Josef Mengele of Auschwitz.  Where there had been America, Britain, and other Allied forces that rose up to defeat the devil’s plot for world dominance through Hitler’s efforts against his own nation and the Jews; who will rise up to save America from herself?  God has a plan but you and I must do our part!

The Liberty of God

God has given America too much liberty, education in history, and spiritual power for it to fall into the same trap as some of those other nations who were constrained from liberty, assembly, knowledge and practice of faith by monarch, dictators, or autocrats.  The devil is trying to do the same thing to America through establishing religious tyrants, and setting up autocrats in the government, silencing history, oppressing women, false doctrine and oppressing liberty.  Democracy has allowed citizens the liberty to exercise free speech and rise up and tell the truth.  Even without democracy though, the Holy Spirit led the apostles of Christ through religious faith and truth to throw down the stronghold of the devil’s lies and set people free from bondage.  Democracy must not become another type of god to America though.  The power to overcome the devil is through Jesus Christ who has already defeated Satan.  That power to overcome the lie and liar has been given to the true church, which is not a building but individual Spirit-filled believers who have power to denounce the devil. Democracy aids the believer through public freedom to speak but even that power is liberty that comes from the grace of God.  We see how the republican government leaders are trying to take back rights to vote, read, speak, assemble, and make personal decisions while they stack the courts with like minds.  Christians cannot just sit back and say we will pray either because James said faith without works is dead faith.  It takes God to overturn the devil’s work but we work with God to accomplish His work in the earth.  That is why believers must stand up for truth and be willing to be an instrument in bringing down the devil and his tricks.  That is why we have to stand up for just laws that govern the land and unseat wicked men of power.  Christians know to try the spirit of a person (1Jn 4:1).

The devil always has to use a lie to deceive people as he did the woman in the Garden of Eden.  Prejudice was a powerful lie that worked to deceive the people in Germany and the same prejudice that divided Germany has returned back to its source to destroy America.  America’s prejudice inspired Adolph Hitler to infect his people and that same lie has now infected and divided America.  This nation has had over 400 years to deliver itself from the worst of prejudice that destroyed African, Indigenous, Chinese, Italian, Mexican and other ethnic families to promote white power.  The spirit of God has led me to write several books to try to show these facts gradually to the body of Christ and citizens but they have not been widely read and this writing and my website summarizes it in short form.  Believers and Americans must wake up and start fighting back against the spiritual war that is against them before it becomes a physical war. 

The judging that is going on in America now touches every person but primarily it is a judging of an abusive white rule that is being uncovered and manifested worldwide.  It is not black or brown people who are supplanting a white majority in America; it is God who is doing it.  God does judge evil in His own time.  Sodom and Gomorrah, where Lot lived, was judged for wickedness, but Abraham went on doing good.  Judgment is God’s way of cleansing the earth.  Some churchgoers became confused about preaching of the end of the world and signs do show a conclusion of normal life.  Judgment does not always mean the end of the world; sometimes it is just means the end of your little world.  It is time for the end of white abusive rule because Caucasians will not cease their racial prejudice against other people that God created in His image and loves enough to have crucified Jesus for them.

White men have ruled the world over the past millennium and they have not corrected their error of prejudice or brutality of other ethnicities.  They have had the advantage of the freedom and knowledge of Christ for more than a thousand years and they are still set on using their power to rule and abuse others while they declare themselves a superior race.   It has been painful to watch but the Spirit of the Lord has shown me over and over the manipulative power white people use to get what they want.  They use their oppressive power to get black people to relinquish their power to them for some lesser benefit.  They rebound over black people because blacks have had to deal with white oppression and still try to grow honestly.  It is possible through Christ but it is not easy.  Black people must first accept for themselves that they are equal in God’s sight and stop yielding to the oppression of white power.  My recent book discussed this subject more in-depth (Greed, Bondage, Corruption and Abuse: A Story of White Fear, American Turmoil and How to Overcome It- paperback; http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/jrpaynebooks2go; ISBN 9781300341673).  White people are not superior to black people.  That is a deceptive lie of the devil.  Black people existed before white people and whites have learned and still are learning from observing and oppressing blacks.  Black people can prevail over oppression by working together as a group with Christ by faith.  Divide and conquer is the game that whites have always used against blacks over and over and black people must overcome its own thoughts of inferiority and accept their rightful place in life. All Christians should know that oppression does not come from God.

The exposing of Donald Trump as a liar, thief, racist, seditionist, adulterer, heathen, and general con man has not dissuaded many citizens from supporting him.   They follow him because they are of the same spirit.  Many that follow him claim to believe in both Christianity and nationalism for white people.  There is no litmus test for their political view other than those who have gone before them who tried to carve out a pure race like Hitler did, but there is a test of truth in the bible.  God Himself denounces what they are doing because it does not come from Him and is not of love. Anti-Christ work is against Christ and therefore those who engage in it are not Christians.  Those who call themselves Christians who participate in Trumpism have nothing to deconstruct; they have taken the road of error.

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amo 3:3

Christianity gave all churchgoers and hearers an opportunity to choose between good and evil; God and the devil.  The difference between the two has been stark and yet many people have preferred evil over good.  Their hearts have been revealed and will be judged based on their choice.  Even all the devastation that has been in the land and the threat of more disaster to come has not put the fear of God in the hearts of some people who refuse to turn to God.  The needs of the poor, immigrants, widows, and orphans have not moved the hearts of some who are hardened against God. 

I heard a preacher preach recently that God is no longer angry with people because of Christ.  I beg to differ with that preacher.  God is anger with the wicked every day. 

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.   Rom 1:18 

Believers are all reconciled to God through Christ but the wrath of God still works against those that have not accepted Christ as Savior.  Only believers are covered under the blood of Christ and delivered from wrath.

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2Co 5:18-19.

Judgment in the land is a time for those who have not come into the ark of safety to run quickly under the protection of Christ before wrath falls on them.  All people regardless of color or ethnicity can be saved through faith in Christ.  Jesus has told us through the Word of God that the devil is a liar and the father of it (Joh 8:44).  Those that follow Satan are lying to people to deceive them.  We have the choice to read, hear and accept the truth and dispel the lie. All people have the opportunity to turn to God and be saved. 

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Joh 3:17-18

Christianity requires one to make a choice between serving God or Satan.  Joshua said as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  If you choose to serve the Lord in sincerity, He will meet you where you are and lead you all the way to heaven.

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Heb 13:5
