Christ Crucified: Foolishness… or the Power of God?

 

1_cor_1-18

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (BSB)

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

Jews demand signs and Greeks search for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

Never has this passage made more sense to me now, after the Father delivered me from the lies of “christian” occultism.

It’s frustrating and very sad how many proclaimed “christians,” having fallen for the lies and deceptions of quantum (fractal) spirituality and are steeped in the occult, often without even knowing it, are absolutely incapable of grasping the simple truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They believe they have “matured past” the simple gospel, and are off gallivanting through the spiritual universe, “taking back” what they believe to be “God’s truth” from the occult.

The fractal programming they have succumbed to via these doctrines of demons is so apparent when they speak or write to Carolyn and I, but they, puffed up by pride in their own imagined wisdom, can’t see the tangled web of deception that has them bound and connected to the spirit of the antichrist… the god of this world… the beast system….

Here’s some basic “Bible Math”:

  • God + Satan = Satan

We can’t combine God and Satan. We either serve God or we serve Satan. We can’t have it both ways.

  • Bible + Mysticism = Mysticism

We can’t combine the Bible with mysticism (or any other belief system, by the way). The Bible has nothing to do with mysticism. We can’t mix the two and still claim to believe the Word of God.

  • Biblical Christianity + Occultism = Occultism

We cannot combine Biblical Christianity and occultism. We can not claim to be a Christian, yet hold onto the ways of the occult. The two paths do not merge. Either we follow Jesus Christ, or we do not.

  • God’s Truth + Satan’s Lies = Satan’s Lies

We cannot combine the Truth of God with the lies of Satan. Satan does not hold on to any truth that comes from God. There is no truth to be found within the lies of Satan. Satan’s so-called “truths” are perversions. Satan’s so-called “truths” lead away from God’s path. We can’t rummage around in Satan’s lies and expect to find the truth of God. To try and do so leads to delusion, and ultimately, will lead to destruction.

Yet, some come to us, questioning, wanting answers for their suffering  — physical, emotional, spiritual, mental — asking us for a solution.

And when we (Carolyn and I) point out that at least part of their problem is that they are involved in the occult, and when we point to the simple truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ as being The Solution, some of them are confused and can’t grasp it… or they dismiss the solution as being “too simple”… or they scoff at us, accuse us, curse us, attack us (verbally, whether publicly or privately, or they come to us in the astral and attack)….

None of which we take personally, mind you. We recognize that those individuals are highly confused and deluded, at the least by the fractal programming that is present within the doctrines of demons they have believed, and many of them are very clearly demonically controlled and influenced.

(And, too, some have been programmed to various degrees — whether it’s TBMC or a more common “brainwashing” situation — through traumas in life that they are weighed down by, and some of them, understandably, have a very hard time grasping the simplicity of what we are trying to share. But although the two groups — “christian” occultists who have been programmed by doctrines of demons, and survivors who have been programmed or brainwashed — do have a lot in common due to programming, I’m not really addressing survivors in this article, but I’m addressing the “christian” occultists.)

I  hurt for every one of those people, because I understand what it’s like to be where they are! 😢 Not only do I understand what it’s like to be tied up by programming — programming that was forced upon me as a child, outside of my will — but also later, as an adult, tied up by the programming of the doctrines of demons that I had believed. And I understand that it is so hard to let go of what we believe to be true, and open our minds to the simple Truth of God’s Word.

So to those individuals who insist upon holding on to the occult, yet claim to be Christian, I ask…

Will you put away what you believe to be your “higher understanding” and simply go with what is Truth? The Truth of the Father that is found in a simple understanding of His Word (the Bible)… the Truth that leads to true righteousness and holiness that is not of your own merit, but only because of and through Jesus Christ… the Truth that leads to eternal life.

Can you put away your own understanding and accept the simple Truth of God’s Word? Or do you prefer to continue down your own path of what you consider to be “enlightenment” or “illumination” or “the deeper things of God,” so sure of your own self-righteousness… your own version of holiness… your own imagined superiority…?

Are you ready to turn aside from your way (the way of Satan… the way of destruction), and turn to the Father… to pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ… live in humble submission to the will of the Father… live in obedience to His Word…? Or do you prefer Satan’s path of “feel good” enlightenment?

Will Christ crucified be a stumbling block to you, will He be foolishness to you… or will Christ crucified be the power and the wisdom of God?

  1. Like you have stated time and time again. If what you are studying or being told by some so called preacher or counselor doesn’t line up with the Word of God, it’s false doctrine. Beware!!! I encourage everyone to read the Scripture for themselves, and study it in context.
