Apostate Church is the Boiling Frog
    
     There's an old saying that if you throw a frog in boiling water he will quickly jump out, but if you put a frog in a pot of cold water and slowly raise the heat, the gradual increase will make the frog complacent and unawares. The frog will eventually fall asleep and cook to death, without ever being alarmed.
     This fable is an analogy or metaphor of the present spiritual condition of the majority in the Americanized “Christian” Church which has/is  is fallen away (Gk. apostisia  apostasy, falling away)to the slowly heated water of the past sixty plus years of increasing Apostasy and are in danger of being boiled right into hell fire if they do not wake up, repent and obey the Word of God. The real Christian Church founded by Jesus Christ in the first century cannot be found in the present majority of American “Christian” churches.
 
     The True Christian Church founded on the Rock of Jesus Christ is the humbled Spiritual Body of Jesus Christ, where the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.  You can call them the “First Century Church of Jesus Christ in One Accord” There were no Catholics, no Pentecostals, no Baptist, no Presbyterians, no Methodist, no Lutherans, no denominations whatsoever, They belong to no denomination and are not divided by man-made doctrines. They not only believe in the Word of God, but they obey the Word of God, not just some of the Word, but all of the Word of God, or at least they strive to obey all of the Word. They are not a gagged 501(c.)3  State, IRS, tax exempt, controlled “non profit corporation” like over 95% of American Christian churches who are forbidden to speak out against immoral politicians or political correct issues that the government considers legal or forbidden to promote Godly men from their congregations to any local, state or national elected office . The true church is a Free Church and  pays their taxes and tribute as commanded by God and “Give to God what is God’s and to Caesar (government) what is Caesar’s .” They are not cowards in the pulpit, they are not bound or gagged by 501(c)3 they speak out against evil. They warn of the consequences of Hell Fire and Damnation for the unrepentant sinner. They warn against evil, including evil politicians, and promote Godly men for public office; city councils, mayor, circuit court judges, state representatives governors, senators, presidents etc. who believe in Christian theocracy in principal on which our nation was founded. On the other Left hand, are the churches which are deceived and unknowingly under the control of Satan and his followers .
    
     The majority of so called Christian churches in America have fallen away (Gk. apostasia) from obeying the Word of God. They compromise with the devil and do not know it because they are deceived . Most of their leaders are hirelings who care nothing about their sheep but only their titles, their position , their denominational doctrines , their financial comfort level and their pride.
 
We are now in the midst of the great falling away (from the truths of the written Word of God as foretold in 2Thess. 2:3
The Church is the frog in the water of Delusion . The fire is the satanic forces at work to destroy deceived individuals in the Church in the Lake of Fire Rev.21:8 if they do not repent. 
     About 95% of American Christian Churches have fallen away from the obeying the truth of God’s Word and are in danger of judgment and Hell Fire if their leaders (bishops, elders,  pastors) do not repent.  They go to an fro to make converts and make them twice as much a child of Hell as  themselves. This is the great Last Day’s falling away as foretold in 2Thess. 2:3. Let us name how they have fallen away (Gk. Apostasia) from the truth of the God’s Word: 
 
1. Pride and Arrogance of Christian leaders.  Most pastors in the secular organized churches in America are hirelings, who love to be admired and the center of attention and honor. They love their Titlesposition of power, financial security, nice clothes, respect in the community, and unwarranted control over others.  For the most part they have rebelled against the Word  of God.  They rely on the tithes of both working married men and women, ignoring enforcement of the command that wives be keepers (Gk. guardian ) at home  Titus 2:5 KJV to take care of their husbands and children.  The leaders do not enforce the Word of God for fear of upsetting their tithe paying members and income into their Church.  There is much sin in the churches and the leaders do not address these sins or call for repentance from the "sheep" that they may be saved from eternal condemnation. They ignore the Wisdom that a each pastor is only to  have no more than 100 members of his church Luke 15:1-9   under his spiritual care including children at the age of reason,  so he knows what is going on in their lives. and can minister to them.  The primary responsibility for  pastors after correctly preaching and teaching the Word of God to his fold  is to counsel and minister to the married and their families so they do not become the  common statistic of over 50 % seeking divorce.  His job is to enforce the word of God and to  keep families together is his # 1 responsibility as a shepherd of the sheep.  
    
2. Most Churches in America are not biblically sanctioned Christian Churches but 501 ( c ) 3 tax exempt corporations controlled by the State and the IRS.  The word of God clearly states in three  scriptures that the Christian Church living under heathen government rule is commanded to pay the temple tribute (tax) and the government tribute (taxes) so as not to offend the religious government or secular government in order to remain independent from any religious, government or secular government control  in Church matters.  Even Jesus paid tribute (taxes) to the local authorities  Matt. 17;24-27.  Interesting to note in this Scripture Jesus had Peter to hook a fish, the symbol of Christianity, and take the money from its mouth. to pay for both Jesus' and Peter's temple tax. 
In Matthew 22: 16-22,  Jesus instructs his followers and the Pharisees to pay taxes to Caesar (Government). 
In Romans 13:4-7 Paul writes under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to pay taxes to the government authorities.
 
Our nation was founded by Christians. * Out of the 55  writers and signers  of the US Constitution, 52 were Bible believing  Protestants, 2 were Catholic and one was a Diest.  Yes, it was OK  for the church not to pay taxes, sanctioned by Jesus Christ, Matt. 17:25,26 when our nation was founded because it was the Christian Church and its pastors, members that fought the wars, schooled our children, kept records of births,m baptisms, marriages and deaths, took care of the widows and orphans (welfare) and fed the poor because most of our 18th century government were Christian and their was no government social services, no Social Security, no food stamps.  However, when the US Government departed from obedience to the Word of God , and  instituted government control and  entitlement, it then became a secularized stranger as Caesar was to Jesus requiring everyone  to pay taxes, including Jesus and any follower.         
 
Because of Deception and blatant disobedience to the Word of God, pastors, elders in the Churches and leaders in ministries belonging to 501(c) 3, which is most in the USA, have become rebellious cowards and silenced by the fear of the IRS over the past 63 years.  Jesus Christ said give to the government (Caesar) which is due government and give to God what is due God. Matt. 22:21 .  When there is conflict between the word of man and the Word of God,  obedience to the Word of God is sovereign over any word of man. Acts 5:29

Willful Disobedience to the Word of God in  America's Apostate Churches. 
The spirit of Anti-Christ in the Churches. 
John, warns in 1 John 2:18,  1 John 2:22,  1 John 4:3,  2 John 1:7 about the spirit of anti-Christ Gk, anti-cristos meaning , against Christ or in place of Christ. 
 
The following discovery concerning God's command came about when I researched the prophecy  "Shaking Sand and Pearls" in the scriptures  and other sources as I do whenever I receive a word from the Lord, before I type it and release it for publication.  Most of my learning and revelation came by researching the content of prophecies I received or the Lord placing Holy Spirited  thoughts in my mind and spirit over the past 35 years.  In researching this prophecy, I  discovered blatant apostasy promoting the spirit of Antichrist by  Messianic, male  believers,other  Christians and "Christian" leaders in not only disobeying 1 Corinthians 11:1-4 but failing to correct women who pridefully and willfully rebelled against this word of God by disobeying  vs s. 5-15.1 Corinthians 11:1-16is a New Covenant *ordinance. 
 
Paul's New Covenant command by the Holy Spirit, is a fulfilled prophecy from Ezekiel 21:25-27 to the Church for men not to wear a material head covering during prayer and prophecy (worship services), so as not to dishonor Christ  and women to cover their heads for prayer and prophecy (worship services) so as not to dishonor the believing men in their lives and designed to  recognize the obedient  men in their lives are their heads (GK. kephale leaders) which supports God's mandated roles for obedient men and women throughout the entire bible.

Now let us go to the prophecy in Ezekiel 21:25-27 with Ezekiel speaking God's Word and reads:  ". . .  And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high. will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him. . ,." Ezk.. 21:25-27 

Though God did not want His people to have a human King over them, He gave them their kings they wanted to teach them a lesson  because they had rejected God as their leader. God knew that the human kings, even his beloved David, with their fallen natures, would fail them one way or the other.    

God initially commanded Old Testament kings and priest to wear types of head coverings diadems, miters, crowns, turbans, tiaras etc. to set them apart and show others they were in a position of authority and power to go along with whatever their God anointed position was in leadership.    
 
The profane wicked prince in this Scripture is King Zedekiah, a very evil leader of the Jews.  He was so evil, like many of the other Kings of Judah and Israel that God had enough of their evil.  Zedekiah was the last King of Israel until Jesus Christ was first titled Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews and was crowned King of the Jews first with the crown of thorns and then with the heavenly crown when He was seated in the Heaven on his Throne.     In this Scripture, God removes the diadem (tiara, mitre, turban)  and the crown which are the symbols of authority and power of the kings and high priest.  He says he is going to take it away. In other words, He is not only doing away with kings for Israel, with Zedekiah being the last king, but he is removing the outward signs of human kingship, the head coverings, crown, mitre tiara, turban etc. that the male kings and priest wore as sign of their power and authority.  Then the Lord says in this scripture  He is going to give the diadem, the crown to Jesus Christ, whose right it is when He comes       

The important explanation of Ezekiel's  prophetic scripture in Ezk. 21:25-27 which is the command supporting 1Corinthians 11:1-16  to be a  New Testament command from  God.  
Don't forget Paul, as Saul, was a former  Pharisee, a well educated man in the Jewish ruling council with much knowledge of the Old Testament scriptures and  the Prophets and their prophecies .  Not only did Saul/Paul know the law but he also knew the Messianic scriptures foretelling the Messiah  to come including the  Ezekiel scripture that there was to be no more kings of the Jews, no more head coverings for all Christian men, because when Jesus came  he fulfilled His Kingship and He was/is the great High Priest. 

 The Spirit of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Lord,  said in this prophecy in Ezekiel  The diadem, the crown, coverings etc. was to be given in the future and exalt Him who was lowly  (humbled)  and abase ( humble)  him (them) that were/are  high (proud and arrogant) When Jesus received the Crown of Thorns from His tormentors, He was, abased or from a human perspective, as low as you can get. 

(The following in no way supports the Islamic oppressive and Satanic requirement for  Isalmic women to cover themselves.)   

Were not Christian women in the New Covenant Church in the first century held in low esteem by the unbelieving masses especially the unbelieving Jews,   So the Spirit of Jesus tells Paul in 1 Corinthians 11: to remind them to wear the covering, so she can have Power on  her head because of the angels. vs.10 KJV . 10  "For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 1Cor 11:10
The Greek word for power in this verse is  Exousia meaning and look at the superlatives. 

So what does "For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. ' in 1Cor 11:10  mean ?

1849. exousia ex-oo-see'-ah from 1832 (in the sense of ability); privilege, i.e. (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely, magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence:--authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right, strength.

Based on the Ezekiel 21:25-27 prophecy doing away with the head coverings as a sign of authority and power for the male kings and priest and giving it to Jesus and the abased (lowly, humble women) and the Holy Spirits command in 1 Corinthians' 11:1-16. This is what I believe by the Holy Spirit what "For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. ' in 1Cor 11:10  means for Christian women in light of the above Greek meaning of power in this verse. 
First,  for about 1900 years, until about the 1960's, when just before the great falling away and the "Womens Liberation" movement, Christian women, knowingly and unknowingly obeyed 1Cor. 11:1-10 by wearing some type of material head covering when in church worshiping , praying, or prophesying.  The majority of women in the middle of the 20th and 21st century have again been deceived by Satan on a large scale because of their Pride and the independence from men movement, not to wear some type of head covering when worshiping, praying,and/or prophesying.  For the most part, wives have rebelled against the Word of God by leaving the home to earn more money to buy more material goods when God' commanded through His servant Paul, for women   To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.  Tit 2:5   
Keepers: Strong's 3626 from 3624 Greek word oikouros oy-koo-ros’ meaning to guard the home both physically and  spiritually from demonic infestation; caring for the house, and its inhabitants, (children, husband)  working at home;  the watch (er) or keeper of  the house, staying at home and taking care of household affairs. No wonder many of our children are delinquent; no body is home when they leave or come home from school.
