Lee Grady and Church Reform - What You Need to Know
Lee Gray, contributing editor of Charisma magazine, brings to an end his 10 year failed campaign to bring reform to the church by nailing his manifesto on the door of the Charismatic Movement.
Stating that Martin Luther “staged the most important protest in history”, Grady tries to fill Luther’s shoes for the modern church. Just as Luther nailed a list of complaints on a church door in Wittenberg, Germany, so Gray, reaches back into history to stake a claim in today’s history as a reformer, insisting that he is starting the New Reformation. Funny how, after failing to bring reform, he still wants to be thought of a as a reformer.
Apostle Eric vonAnderseck’s rebuttal was both insightful and instructive. Citing the many errors in the current Christian culture, Apostle vonAnderseck reminds Grady that his complaints are ambiguous and offered no real remedy and no direction for faith.
While Grady wants to stop the Lone Ranger mentality, he himself is a Lone Ranger and Apostle vonAnderseck brings to his attention that “his hope for the church will not come about in the present system which is carrying those viruses which upset the early church. Satan successfully uses these same viruses today to keep those evil stones in the foundation of the thinking and the study of doctrines even to resist the Holy Ghost, calling reproof of the devil.”
I am adding my rebuttal to Apostle vonAnderseck’s rebuttal in hopes that the church, instead of reaching into the past for clarity, faith, and purity, will reach for Christ. There is a growing number of Christians who have left the current Christian culture and have found those things that Grady is looking for. The church has been reborn under his nose and he still refuses to acknowledge the work of the Lord.
Grady’s 15 Point Manifesto followed by my rebuttal. In each rebuttal, I will also point out to the reader Grady’s hypocrisy.
Definition of Hypocrisy (by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck) -- To remain indifferent to God, but retain good feelings about oneself because of a valuing system that is removed from God. Like false humility, hypocrisy is pretended obedience to God. One who puts on the costume of Christianity, but darkness is still upon the heart. One who adopts a lifestyle or mannerisms which is thought to be pleasing to God but is void of the effectual working of His power, and thus robbing Him of the fruit in the inner man which would truly glorifies God, I Pet.2:l.
1. Let’s reform our theology. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is God and He is holy. He is not an “it.” He is not a blob, a force, or an innate power. We must stop manipulating Him, commanding Him and throwing Him around.
Teacher Maria says: Grady, your generation produced and you endorsed the current Christian culture. What you see disturbing you is a product of the system you collaborated with to create. You created a culture of doctrine from the Bible that is mixed with human aspirations, philosophies, and principles.
You then put this “private” (personal) interpretation into the hands of everyone who would listen, who in turn repeated your words, “The Holy Ghost is teaching me.” It’s hard to argue against something you created. You may not like what you see because it took a lot of unexpected turns. You could not predict this outcome.
The reality is that believers are doing exactly what you told them to do, “Go to the Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to open the scriptures to you.” It is not their fault that they walked away with the commandments of men rather than the commandments of God. It is not their fault that your advise led them to embrace a doctrine that is half truth and half error.
As we read through Grady’s further complaints against the church: NO Lone Rangers – NO more acting out the flesh – NO more games – NO more super apostles – and STOP the foolishness, every complaint can be traced to this one error on the part of Grady and the leadership he supports and the system he is currently a part of: You cannot mix doctrine to make your own temple. Your doctrine is not pure.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy, for while he advocates pure theology he has not left the system he is in bed with, which produced the Gospel of the Flesh (the impure theology he wants to reform).
Furthermore, Grady advocates correcting the doctrine of others, but does not receive doctrinal correction himself from the authority (Apostles) God gave as a gift to the church to bring her out of this state of ignorance. God has already reformed the doctrine and the church is reborn and growing. Everyone who leaves the current Christian culture to come into covenant with God and receives doctrinal cleansing from true apostles will receive this reformed doctrine.

2. Let’s return to the Bible. The Word of God is the foundation for the Christian experience. Any dramatic experience, no matter how spiritual it seems, must be tested by the Word and the Holy Spirit’s discernment. Visions, dreams, prophecies and encounters with angels must be in line with Scripture. If we don’t test them we could end up spreading deception.
Teacher Maria says: Jesus is the Word of God. Jesus alone is the foundation for the Christian faith and experience, and Jesus is not paper and ink. He left us a record, a pattern of knowledge that is to be set as the foundation for faith to be built in His image. This foundation of knowledge must be set in the heart of each believer by living apostles and those prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers the living apostle has trained.
That is the biblical pattern.
The foundation of truth is the 12 Elements of the Gospel, which represent Jesus Christ perfectly. No other truth can represent Him. The gifts of the Spirit, prophecy, the callings, and manifestation of the graces of God are a systemic part of the whole gospel. They are the tools of Jesus’ New covenant and Jesus uses them as part of the normal growth cycle of the believer. They are infused with God’s grace and carry His virtue and He sanctified them for us to use by His blood.
When they are abused it is because they are being forced into the frame of man rather than the frame of God and taken out of their natural environment. The error is on the part of Grady who is judging the manifestation of the Whore of the book of Revelation.
The “Holy Spirit’s discernment” --- Sadly, discernment is not possible for those in the False Religious System (FRS) because their truth is mixed with error. Discernment works in the presence of truth, not in the absence of it. That is what the anointing is for. Discernment is born of the witness of the Spirit being joined to the record of Christ. It is the Spirit that builds your understanding by those things of His kingdom His love has provided for you.
Discernment for those in the FRS (current Christian culture) is a guessing game that is played by weighing scripture against the moral code and discerning by the defiled conscience. Your moral code is not the Holy Spirit.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy in that he sets terms to correct the church while he himself is defiled. That’s like a leper trying to cleanse a leper. Grady is only addresses the symptoms rather than the underlying disease. Furthermore, he is isolating his faith from the tools of Christ that carry His grace to the soul for regeneration and then complaining that grace is absent from faith.
3. It’s time for personal responsibility. We charismatics must stop blaming everything on demons. People are usually the problem.
Teacher Maria says: Grady is again addressing the symptom rather than the disease. Christians are hunting down demons rather than taking responsibility for their growth because this is what they were taught to do. This problem (as all others) stem from not having the foundation of truth set in the heart.
People have the knowledge of scripture and can quote the text of the Bible, but they do not have the knowledge of how God designed the 12 Elements of the Gospel to work in synergy with their faith—or how to use the tools of the New Covenant – or how to function in their priesthood. People are not the problem—Ignorance is the problem.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady again demonstrates hypocrisy. He remains indifferent to God, while retaining good feelings about himself because of a valuing system that is removed from God. Grady claims it is time for personal responsibility, but he has not taken responsibility for God’s covenant, his priesthood, or brought himself under the umbrella of Jesus’ headship through apostles.
4. Stop playing games. Spiritual warfare is a reality, but we are not going to win the world to Jesus just by shouting at demonic principalities. We must pray, preach and persevere to see ultimate victory.
Teacher Maria says: The point is, that spiritual warfare is not about winning the world to Jesus. It’s about restoring the image of God to the soul. Satan will claim you as his own after conversion because he wants to enslave the soul to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
The church, thinking that spiritual warfare is about evangelism, was following the wrong mandate, which in turn generated confusion for the world and the church. The world is confused because so much effort is made to appeal to the sinner (playing Satan’s game, using Satan’s knowledge) that the sinner does not see Jesus, they just see a distorted image of the world.
The church is confused because all this drive and projection about God wanting us to save the world is leading them down a blind alley. Where’s the payoff? Where is the book of Acts? This wrong focus of the church on evangelism rather than growth results in Christians turning up the thermostat, the drive for converts goes into high gear. They are shouting at the devil and claiming power they do not have. True spiritual warfare is in your priesthood where the Spirit of the Lord daily guides us through the transition from death to life as we take on the divine nature. That’s it! It’s that simple…
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy again, for he talks about prayer, preaching, and persevering, but where is his priesthood? He has been walking in the priesthood of the flesh and advising others to stop playing games. If you deny your priesthood you do not have the tools for spiritual warfare. You might as well sit down, the game is over for you.
5. Stop the foolishness. People who hit, slap or push others during prayer should be asked to sit down until they learn gentleness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Teacher Maria says: It’s hard to control the monster you helped create. Who would have thought that believers would mimic what they see in you, and you would not like it? When you neglect the true anointing that God placed in truth and placed the anointing in acts of power, we should not be surprised that Christians try to force this “anointing” they were taught should be there, but isn’t. They are trying to act out the power with their aggression (like children). The church taught them to play act their way through faith.
The current Christian culture taught the church to abandon their priesthood and focus their faith on the issues of their life: their relationships, their jobs, their income, to discover their inner self. Faith then became impregnated with Themistic Law.
What is Themistic Law: Read Chapter Eighth of Apostle vonAnderseck’s Thesis -- “Analysis of Themistic Law upon Intelligent Design for Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation"
Grady, you gave believers a sensory education in Christ rather than a Spirit education. The sensory education: Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not lie, thou shalt not commit adultery. . .The Law teaches you of Adam’s transgression—these are the fingers of the Law. You reconstruct the transgression with the hands of the Law.
The problem is that Christians don’t know how to find the fruit of Christ by this manipulation and will try any way they can to get relief from what is ailing their soul. This is the reason behind some of that aggression you are seeing and not liking.
HYPOCRISY-- Here again Grady demonstrates hypocrisy. By promoting teaching about the false anointing he is removing himself from responsibility of the consequences. Furthermore, he is asking believers to “LEARN” the fruit of gentleness, thus isolating this one fruit from the other 9. The fruits, as the elements, work in synergy with each other and in concert with your priesthood. A person cannot “learn” gentleness, it is a by-product of grace. The mystery of Christ is not being unlocked to you and you are yet in your sins.
6. End all spiritual extortion now. Christian television ministries must cease and desist from all manipulative fundraising tactics. We must stop giving platforms to ministers who make outlandish claims of supernatural financial returns, especially when Scripture is twisted, deadlines are imposed and the poor are exploited.
Teacher Maria says: Do you mean NOW Mr. Grady? The church should stop spiritual extortion right NOW? This is like a babysitter setting a bowl of potato chips, pizza, pop, and candy in reach of a 2 year old and then when the child starts pouring the pop on the carpet and throwing pizza at the wall, she yell, “Stop it NOW!” Maybe it was not a good idea to put those things within reach of the child.
I think you get the picture. If you preach the aspiration you should not be surprised that ministers use the aspiration.
For the sake of our readers, Apostle Eric vonAnderseck’s 263 page thesis “God’s Intelligent Design for Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation; Bridging Psychological and Clerical Theories for Spiritual Healing; Assessing Exigent Faith Symptoms and Behaviors; and Presenting Ontological Process of Cognitive Faith and Choice Education” extensively covers faith exploitation. He defines the Exigent Faith, identifies the symptoms of Exigent Faith, and explores faith exploitation at 3 levels.
He draws from 28 years of research and experience as the Lord took him behind the scenes to show him the error of the current Christian culture. The Lord showed Apostle vonAnderseck what is happening to His people, how they are suffering under Program Exhilaration (PE) and Induced Insight Phenomena (IIP).
Comparing First Generation Knowledge (FGK1) to Further Generations of Knowledge (FGK2) Apostle vonAnderseck shows us the where, when, how, what, and why of the failure of the current Christian culture.

7. No more Lone Rangers. Those who claim to be ministers of God—whether they are traveling evangelists, local pastors or heads of ministries—must be accountable to other leaders. Any who refuse to submit their lives to godly discipline should be corrected.
Teacher Maria says: What this is, is a pseudo government. We have seen these experiments going on for the past 20 years with the emergence of accountability groups, fathering/mentoring groups, coalitions, and ecumenical movements. Everyone is trying government on for size to see how the robes fit on them.
It’s time for each of you to take the robes off and stop pretending. Stop playing government and accept the government God already set in place to lay the foundation of truth in your heart. There is no other way. What you are looking for is group council. You’re looking for a failsafe against things going wrong.
But you have had these governments by council; There are hundreds of models out there. Each of them falling in love with a set of accountability procedures and falling in love with their new role, but despite their best efforts, they could not achieve agreement on one doctrine of Christs.
This is what the Bible says:
2 Corinthians 13:11 good comfort, be of ONE MIND, live in peace.
Philippians 1:27 in one spirit, with ONE MIND striving together for...
Philippians 2:2 same love, being of one accord, of ONE MIND.
1 Peter 3:8 be ye all of ONE MIND, having compassion one...
Being of one mind does not mean that you have 30,000,000 people all coming into agreement about the need for accountability. The one mind has to do with all 30,000,000 (all who call themselves by the name of Christ) coming into the same doctrine. Only then can they all be of one mind in Christ.
Every minister today who is not joined to the stewardship of God’s choosing is a Lone Ranger. God’s calls it “Open Stewardship”; And He announced the end of Open Stewardship at the turn of the century, when he was opening the door for apostolic stewardship.
HYPOCRISY-- Here again Grady demonstrates hypocrisy. He condemns the Lone Rangers when he is a Lone Ranger. “The Lord initiates His care in the stewardship of His government to oversee the growth of His children. Where government is lacking, so is the fullness of Christ in the worship of the saints.” ~ EVA
8. Expose the creeps. Churches should start doing background checks on traveling ministers. Preachers who have been hiding criminal records, lying about their past marriages, preying on women or refusing to pay child support should be exposed as charlatans and shunned if they do not repent.
Teacher Maria says: It is easy isn’t it to say we are cleaning house by getting rid of the “bad guys”, when in reality God is addressing you. This is nothing more than passing the buck. Do you think that these sins are worse than your own? I suggest that churches do background checks on every minister who claims to hear direction from the Holy Ghost or correction for the church. Are they apostles? Do they have the authority to teach doctrine to the church? If you do not, then you are a charlatan and should be shunned if you do not repent.
We need to take into consideration God’s view. God views those who teach false doctrine as dangerous to the church. When Grady say “Let’s reform our theology”, and “Let’s return to the Bible”, it is clear the that Grady is complaining about the current Christian teaching, endorsing, embracing, and spreading, many strange doctrines.
2 John 1:9-10
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the DOCTRINE of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the DOCTRINE of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this DOCTRINE, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed.
HYPOCRISY-- Here again Grady demonstrates hypocrisy. While accusing others, he is excusing himself.
9. Stop faking the anointing. God is God, and He does not need our “help” to manifest Himself. That means we don’t sprinkle glitter on ourselves to suggest God’s glory is with us, hide fake jewels on the floor to prove we are anointed or pull chicken feathers out of our sleeves to pretend angels are in the room. This is lying to the Holy Spirit.
Teacher Maria says:
I addressed this earlier. Grady’s complaint #5 Stop the foolishness, and I see that Grady is proving my point here. The current Christian culture made a dire mistake when teaching that the anointing is the “power” of God that manifests His glory. If that false doctrine was not spread we would not see people exploiting it.
It is time that the church received a ground up teaching about what the anointing really is. Forget everything that you have heard and prepare yourself to build with new knowledge (it may be new to you, but I assure you, it is not new to the early church).

. An easy to use interactive quiz lets you quiz yourself!
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy yet again. He accuses people of faking the anointing when he is faking grace. It’s ok to fake grace, but not the anointing? Satan inflames the aspirations to blind the soul from grace; but truth removes the dominion of sin and brings life. ~ EVA
Satan provided himself as a contact point to destroy the faith of Adam and is the master of darkness; whereas the grace of God releases all those that take on the yoke of the knowledge of Christ. This makes Him your Lord. ~ EVA
10. Let’s return to purity. We’ve had enough scandals. The charismatic church must develop a system for the restoration of fallen ministers. Those who fall morally can be restored, but they must be willing to submit to a process of healing rather than rushing immediately back into the pulpit.
The Lie of the Gospel of the Flesh. What concord has Christ with Belial? Belial works with passion (concupiscence) and Christ works with reflection (faith).
Teacher Maria says: This is exactly what God has been saying to you, Grady. God has a system set in place for your doctrinal and spiritual cleansing to prepare you for your priesthood, but you want to manage your own healing in your own way and rush right back into the pulpit thinking you are cured after searching your heart and the attic.
Want to know more about how God is using true apostles to prepare believers for their priesthood?
From the lesson: Doctrinal Cleansing; Course: Apostles Today Series 2
by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck
What is doctrinal cleansing? When we are enlightened by truth and Satan’s lie is exposed and we then choose to embrace the truth, we are separating ourselves from the lie. What is happening is that the soul is being cleansed. Satan defiled the soul with his false knowledge and God is using truth, as soap, to remove false knowledge from the soul. This is doctrinal cleansing.
Why is doctrinal cleansing necessary? When error is mixed with truth it is like mixing what Satan says with what God says and thinking that you can remain pure and please God some other way. It is not God’s will to mix error with truth. God wants us to learn His truth to separate ourselves from the error. There is no other way to please God.
This idea of truth being pure from error is perhaps the most difficult thing for a person to grasp. Satan acculturated man to believe that many truths can please God. But Jesus was very clear on this point. He taught that the presence of error changes truth just like leaven changes bread. Jesus used the word “leaven” to point out to us that error mixed with truth is not pleasing to God. False doctrine is the mixture of truth with error.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady again demonstrates hypocrisy. If any man hears the holy knowledge of My kingdom and it remains concealed from the heart it is because the will refuses to labor with the knowledge and I assigned a spirit to take it from them. And so Satan takes claim of these of his likeness and he takes them prisoner again.
11. We need humility. Ministers who demand celebrity treatment, require lavish salaries, insist on titles or exhibit aloofness from others are guilty of spiritual pride.
Liberate your faith! Return to the knowledge of Christ that makes faith simple.
Teacher Maria says: Seeing we have progressed this far in Grady’s “New Reformation” is it not likely that he can tell the difference between true humility and false humility. In the world of the flesh the title “apostle” speaks of a boast and confirmation that is sought of men because the kingdom of the flesh is building confidence with the wrong substance.
In the kingdom of God the title “apostle” identifies a necessary tethering of grace and stewardship that confirms Jesus Christ, which builds confidence in God. When a man accepts the testimony of the world it is because he sees this testimony yet in his conscience and is dealing with this paradox by seeking worthiness through false humility.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy. His struggle with his conscience says that his worthiness in God is not a reality. When you have to create humility to ease your conscience, it becomes a myth, and the myth produces the false culture of God. Humility becomes an abstract.
Always remember: Grace creates the true humbleness of mind to God, where the will is strengthened for faith and the aspiration dies. Grace also brings with it these virtues: temperance, longsuffering, patience, endurance, joy, love, peace, meekness, gentleness, goodness, and faith. Seek His grace and not humbleness and you will see the face of Christ and enter into His rest, ceasing to strive for those things that war against the soul.
12. No more big shots. Apostles are the bondslaves of Christ, and should be the most impeccable models of humility. True apostles do not wield top-down, hierarchical authority over the church. They serve the church from the bottom up as true servants.
Teacher Maria says: It seems this is a sore spot for Grady. The church today is receiving a New Education about why God selects apostles to lead His church. The kingdom of the flesh thinks in terms of “top-down” verses “bottom-up” because the conscience is defiled. It will always come back to that.
The word authority makes it all very simple. God gave apostles authority to teach doctrine to the church. This is what the Bible says: “And they (the church) continued steadfastly in the apostles DOCTRINE and fellowship.” (Acts 2:42)
You can learn more about what the Bible says about apostles and their God given authority to teach doctrine by studying these 2 interactive lessons offered free by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck:
Or. . .Take the two courses available:
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy. He claims to be a man of faith, but he assesses by his logic. He makes assumptions based on logic, allowing his eyes to weigh reality. But we are to serve the Lord. A person who serves his logic serves his own desires and is enslaved to superstition. God describes this as being backwards to Him. A backward people traverses the grace of God, choosing the primitive culture of the flesh to the culture of God.
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.
How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Balaam? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways.
13. Never promote gifts at the expense of character. Those who operate in prophecy, healing and miracles must also exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. And while we continue to encourage the gift of tongues, let’s make sure we don’t treat it like some kind of badge of superiority. The world needs to see our love, not our glossolalia.
Teacher Maria says: What happens in the False Religious System is that truth is never taught in whole, but in part, and is mixed with a lot of error. So you constantly have this faith that needs to balance (find equity) between this or that. This drive of the flesh for equity exhibits the drive of the God-Code and is a sign that the grace of God is absent. It is grace that has the power to bring equity to the soul, for as we gain God’s perspective Satan’s lie is exposed and we rest in Christ, ceasing to labor with that knowledge that confirms the flesh.
That is how a believer is to stand in the equity of God. However, faith only works in the system God created for it to work. We cannot ask faith to labor for the flesh (we cannot expect faith to give you equity in the kingdom of darkness).
We have an example of the inequity of the kingdom of darkness here where tongues (which is the sign that accompanies the baptism of the Holy Spirit) is weighed against the need for character. Thrown into the mix is the idea of how we need to appeal to the world (where the sign of tongues is weighed against love).
This is how it works in the current Christian culture, trying to find an equitable solutions to paradoxes. The good news is that paradoxes do not exist in the covenant of Jesus Christ. That is good news for you because that means your faith does not have to fight to find equity. You can find your equity by the Spirit and enter into rest (which is what your priesthood is for).
Another false doctrine here is the confusion between tongues manifested as the sign that you are baptized with the Holy Spirit and tongues manifested as a gift of the Spirit. To truly reform the doctrine of the church we need to get back to our roots—the true doctrine of Christ, the purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the purpose of tongues.
If you would like to learn more about God’s true purpose for tongues, what happens when you pray in tongues, the difference between tongues as a seal and prayer language and tongues as a gift, read lesson #6 “God Seals Your Faith” in the “What is Covenant Series”.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady demonstrates hypocrisy. While claiming to be in the truth, he acts against the truth, tasking faith to solve a paradox instead of submitting to the grace of God, thus again showing us that the system that created Grady is broken. The New Reformation will not be accomplished through a few parlor tricks (Grady’s Fiasco/Manifesto), but a “coming out” of a system that is antichrist.
The current Christian culture is a product of generations of the church not standing fast, and not holding the traditions which they have been taught, whether by word (living apostles), or their epistle (living apostles). ( 2 Thessalonians 2:15)
You cannot fix this system Grady. God has given only one commandment to you and to all who would hear: Come out of her!
2 Corinthians 6:15-17
15) And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16) 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.
17) Wherefore COME OUT from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and TOUCH NOT the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
14. Hold the prophets accountable. Those who refuse to take responsibility for inaccurate statements should not be given platforms. And “prophets” who live immoral lives don’t deserve a public voice.
Teacher Maria says: That would include Grady. He makes inaccurate statements all the time, claiming to be the mouthpiece of the Lord and Charisma magazine is giving him a platform saying he deserves a public voice.
The problem is that the current Christian culture churned out prophets that were not first established in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ. None of these prophets are functioning in their priesthood. They do not offer their daily spiritual sacrifices of prophecy to the Lord. I think Grady should stop being surprised that the things that come from these false prophets is carnal. If the root is defiled, corrupt, and dark, so are the branches.
It is time to first build the true foundation of Christ in your hearts. God is calling the church back to the original foundation of knowledge. After believers are cleansed by truth, then add to that, the priesthood of each believer. Now you have a functioning body: government, truth, and Spirit.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady again demonstrates hypocrisy. He pretends to be the healer and the fixer, the chider and the balm, but he has not fixed himself. He is asking obedience of others when he has not been obedient.
15. Let’s make the main thing the main thing. The purpose of the Holy Spirit’s anointing is to empower us to reach others. We are at a crossroads today: Either we continue off-course, entertained by our charismatic sideshows, or we throw ourselves into evangelism, church planting, missions, discipleship, and compassionate ministry that helps the poor and fights injustice. Churches that embrace this New Reformation will focus on God’s priorities.
Teacher Maria says: Wrong again. The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to empower faith that the image of Christ may be formed in the inner man.
What the FRS calls the anointing (the power to reach others) God calls grace. Why does the FRS assign the role of grace to the anointing? Because grace (the 1st of the 12 Elements of the Gospel) has been defined by those who are removed from the traditions of the early apostles. There are 5 Key definitions for grace, 9 distinct operations of God in grace, which result in the 9 fruits of the Spirit taking form in the inner man as the virtue of Christ.
The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to assist the soul through this transition. This is why the Holy Spirit is engrafted into the hearts of those who believe. God gives them this power to express Christ.
HYPOCRISY-- Grady again demonstrates hypocrisy. He is deflecting. Whereas God is bringing to his attention his need to abandon the system that has failed him, he is pointing out the failings of others, thinking his efforts to bring restoration will turn God’s attention away from the real issue at hand: His need to come out of house of Baal.
Now let’s talk about the POWER of the Holy Spirit and what it is for:
The power of God to confirm Jesus Christ as the record of your faith. If this witness is absent, your faith is dead and you will (by default) reach for the moral code for life, which thing God abominates, and judge you as faithless.
The power of God to assist you through the transition from Satan’s shadow to God’s perspective. Without the engrafting of this power of the Spirit and the truth and tools the Spirit works with, you will turn after Satan’s shadow every time.
The power to die to the aspiration to live according to the Spirit. Without this power, your aspiration will present itself to you as inspiration and you will feel how your God-Code responds to this (as fuel to the fire) and you will think the appetite and drive of the God-Code is God. To lead you away from your primal instinct with yourself, God gave you knowledge for faith in Jesus Christ, which you deny by denying His steward in the hour of His visitation.
The power to place charity in the holy things of the altar of Christ rather than the heart of flesh, which will betray you, for the heart conceals its first birth in a lie, while God cleanses the conscience of sin by revealing Christ in our second birth, who only is true. One cannot say that they love God if they deny the Son.
Regeneration speaks of the power of the Spirit to change the shed of man from that of his primate history to that which is of God’s light.
Always remember: Where the power is, there is your promise in Christ, where the promise is there is your hope. The hopelessness of the church is a witness that they are absent of the power because they are absent of the promise.
Grady, you cannot put a band aid on this grievous leprosy, for God has called the church into a time of judgment for cleansing. This is the time of temptation for you and the current Christian culture. You are indeed at the cross-roads, but the choices before you are not of your making, they are of God’s making.
