The Purpose Driven Edom
Genesis 27:40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother;
and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion,
that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
וְהָיָה֙ כַּאֲשֶׁ֣ר תָּרִ֔יד
וּפָרַקְתָּ֥ עֻלֹּ֖ו מֵעַ֥ל צַוָּארֶֽךָ׃
As explained in the article, Edom & The Church - Part 2, Edom is a white man, not an Arab like Ishmael. He dwells right beside Jacob, in the same land, and there he serves Jacob with the goal of taking the dominion from him. Like Herod, the 'Idumean' (Greek transliteration of the word 'Edomite') he practices the same religion as Jacob (either Judaism or Christianity). Herod the Edomite, was a ‘purpose driven’ man. He built many fine buildings for the Jews and even helped rebuild the Jewish Temple. Here was a man whose religion was also practical. The Herod’s were not only practical men when it came to cutting stones, but like the free masons they also cut living stones. It seems that those that hold the trowel and mortar board are also handy with other instruments. Those that use the square and compass also brandish instruments of cruelty. The Herod’s were a bloody family that lived by the sword even as their ancestor Edom did.
Now the reason I mention this is that Edom is beginning to show his head very obviously in the Protestant church if you have eyes to see. And it is through a religious doctrine called ‘Dominionism’. This has been popularised by a pastor named Rick Warren (War On) who is a member of the Catholic Knights of Malta. Rick Warren wrote a book called ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ that espoused the same sort of ‘Positive Christianity’ that Adolf Hitler approved of. This is a form of Christianity that is self focussed and not based on a life crucified with Messiah. It is a life that is dominated by our own self will. Of course the book is sugar coated with scripture but in essence it is a positive self-help book for the modern New Age ‘Me Church’ goer.
This sort of ‘Purpose Driven’ Positive Christianity dominates the Protestant Church in the United States and Australia and elsewhere. It can be summed up as me, me, me. Jesus died for me. It’s all about me. There is no crucifixion with Christ, it is just self-focussed. That is why there are so many self-help books for Christians today each with so many steps to victory. But are they really Christian?
We have women preachers like Joyce Meyer that usurp authority over men and preach a ‘me-centred gospel’ of self-help. These folks preach nothing of the crucified one. It is no more Christian than Satanism. In fact that is what it is. It is lawless (Torah less) self-will. It is using Christ and the bible and scripture as merely a means to run ‘my life’, a life not truly surrendered to the Saviour but running on Autopilot.
Then we have other depraved and carnal showmen like Rodney Howard Browne, Benny Hinn, and tattooed child molester adulterer Todd Bentley (Bent Toddley); Entertainers and clouds without water. The list goes on and on. How can there be revival from these leaders? They are ministers of Satan disguised as ministers of righteousness. They are wicked! And their wicked, clueless, untaught goat-like congregations cannot see it. They are not grounded in the word and neither are they submitted to it. They live week by week from the fouled cisterns of these lolly water dispensing priests of Baal.
The modern mega churches and their popularist entertainment oriented ‘Purpose Driven’ ‘Positive Christianity’ are simply harlots, Christian in name only. They are tax deductible businesses that are organs of the state, simple as that; they are the ‘Me Church’. They are not a bride, they are a whore!
Positively Satanic Dominion - A 1000 Year Reich
This sort of Babylonish church is compliant to the wishers of the dictators of this world and to the bankers and Illuminists that are behind them. It is a church for hire. Yes it is Patriotic, but in a blind whorish way. It is subservient to the state, yet tries to control the state. And like the state, this form of ‘Christianity’ is self-focussed, not Christ centred, and is thus not genuine. It is not about carrying your cross, your reproach for Yeshua’s word and name. It is about carrying burning Crosses like the KKK and living by the sword. Their Jesus is not the one we read of in scripture. Their Jesus is not the man of sorrows. This sort of church is ‘Purpose Driven’ because it is not Spirit led. It is self willed. Yeshua is not in the driver’s seat of this church, man is. This ‘Purpose Driven’ faith is carnal and worldly. It is sensual and devilish. It is demonically driven by the carnal man. This form of ‘Christianity’ is Satanic and worldly. It is not based on a life of mortification of sin. It is lawless. It is not bible based. It is for the establishment of the kingdom of false gods and based on compromise and spiritual fornication. This self-focussed ‘Purpose Driven’ ‘Positive Christianity’ is therefore more compliant to the dictates of a totalitarian state and their ‘Purpose Driven agenda’.
Here is where ‘the rubber meets the road’, and herein lies the danger for those that want to follow Yeshua with purity according to His Word.
This form of ‘Positive Christianity’ will align itself with Caesar, with the State and thus with the Principalities and Powers and the rulers of the darkness of this world. It is the enemy of Torah followers of Yeshua. We may come into a time when the west and the western church turns on Islam, but what they themselves offer is a filthy mixture of Edomitish-Babylonian Christendom married to big business and a totalitarian state. It is Edomitish because Edom who lives by the sword is its foot soldier and enforcer. It is Babylonian because it is mixed with paganism and is not Torah based like Yeshua or his Apostles. God has not made a covenant with such as these but with the Israel of God, through the blood of Yeshua. And he will lead a remnant of his flock out from the countries that they are currently scattered in.
‘Purpose Driven’ ‘Positive Christianity’ is really just ‘Me Christianity’ for the ‘Me Generation’ of ‘Me Church’ goers. It is self-help for the selfish pretenders amongst us, even those that do not have a genuine relationship with Yeshua but claim to. It is not for the lambs of Messiah but for the goats. This is a generation that will ultimately be ruled by tyrants because they refuse the true rule of King Yeshua in their lives.
Dominionism - do "whatever it takes”
Click here for a quick rundown on what this false Dominionist theology is all about. There you will see how Dominionism is a perversion of the true kingdom. Their Apostles are false Apostles. Their Joels Army is a demonic Army. Their latter rain, is merely a spiritual awakening of the goats. It is a Revival of the wicked, married to apostate ‘Churchianity’ and big business.
Dominionism is in essence Catholicism and it even spouts similar Apostolic Authority doctrines! It enforces it’s will with the sword. It uses courts and inquisitors to enforce the faith. But what they enforce is not the Torah or the Spirit of the New Testament. What they enforce are the encyclicals and interpretations of mere men that nullify the Torah by their traditions. In this sense Catholicism and Rabbinical Judaism are really two halves of the same Babylonish whore. They both exalt the authority of their Rabbis or Cardinals above that of scripture. And now the modern protestant denominations have become so watered down doctrinally that they are returning to their whoring Catholic Mother. And united they will stand against the evil of Islam. Yet they themselves are whores!
We may be in a time of a new crusade with Arab infidels of old. After 1000 years, history is now repeating. In a war with Islam we could find a Church that has prostituted itself in bed with big government in an unholy alliance. They may bring in draconian laws here at home while fighting a war in the Middle East. Torah based Messianic believers in Yeshua may be openly persecuted by the state through laws banning the Saturday Sabbath or Kosher food. New Zealand has already banned Kosher slaughter while all meat is slaughtered Hallal for the Muslims.
Rick Warren likes to quip, do ‘whatever it takes’, which means he is on a mission and ‘the end justifies the means’. He is a Dominionist, but he himself is not under the dominion of Yeshua HaMashiach. He is not under his Torah. And he is not Christ centred. He is Church centred! But his Church is not the congregation of the righteous. He is part of a whore. Like his many imitators’, Rick Warren is like his father Esau, worldly, godless and self-willed, and stubborn as a whore. He leads the Church of the self-willed, the Church of Edom and the Apostate Pastors of the House of Israel. And like the unclean spirits that where driven out by Yeshua, Rick’s Dominionist Doctrine will enter into the swine nearby and he will lead all his swinish troops with their perverted gospel into the fiery lake of destruction.
Sheep Scattered to the Hills
Jeremiah 23:1-2 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
הֹ֣וי רֹעִ֗ים מְאַבְּדִ֧ים וּמְפִצִ֛ים אֶת־צֹ֥אן מַרְעִיתִ֖י נְאֻמ־יְהוָֽה׃
This is the pastors of the church in the west in the green 'Goshens' that the House of Israel is scattered amongst. Lands like America and Australia. Let’s read the next verse…
לָ֠כֵן כֹּֽה־אָמַ֨ר יְהוָ֜ה אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל עַֽל־הָרֹעִים֮ הָרֹעִ֣ים אֶת־עַמִּי֒ אַתֶּ֞ם הֲפִצֹתֶ֤ם אֶת־צֹאנִי֙ וַתַּדִּח֔וּם וְלֹ֥א פְקַדְתֶּ֖ם אֹתָ֑ם הִנְנִ֨י פֹקֵ֧ד עֲלֵיכֶ֛ם אֶת־רֹ֥עַ מַעַלְלֵיכֶ֖ם נְאֻמ־יְהוָֽה׃
This is not just poetry; it is prophetic of what will literally happen! The lost tribes will be scattered on the hills in the nations they are residing in. They will be scattered to the hills in America and Australia and elsewhere! But thankfully after this terrible upheaval the good shepherd will search for them and bring them to their own land.
Jeremiah 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
וַאֲנִ֗י אֲקַבֵּץ֙ אֶת־שְׁאֵרִ֣ית צֹאנִ֔י מִכֹּל֙ הָאֲרָצֹ֔ות אֲשֶׁר־הִדַּ֥חְתִּי אֹתָ֖ם שָׁ֑ם
וַהֲשִׁבֹתִ֥י אֶתְהֶ֛ן עַל־נְוֵהֶ֖ן וּפָר֥וּ וְרָבֽוּ׃
So we are going back to the land of Israel. In the following verse he even promises to raise up new Shepherds for them! Shepherds that listen to the Chief Shepherd, Yeshua, not Rick Warren or the Pope.
Jeremiah 23:4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them:
and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking,
saith the LORD.
וַהֲקִמֹתִ֧י עֲלֵיהֶ֛ם רֹעִ֖ים וְרָע֑וּם
וְלֹא־יִֽירְא֨וּ עֹ֧וד וְלֹא־יֵחַ֛תּוּ וְלֹ֥א יִפָּקֵ֖דוּ
Again the House of Israel in these passages refers to the 10 Lost tribes not the Jews who are from the House of Judah. Here is another example of the same prophetic event, this time from the Prophet Ezekiel;
Ezekiel 34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains,
and upon every high hill:
yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth,
and none did search or seek after them.
יִשְׁגּ֤וּ צֹאנִי֙ בְּכָל־הֶ֣הָרִ֔ים
וְעַ֖ל כָּל־גִּבְעָ֣ה רָמָ֑ה
וְעַ֨ל כָּל־פְּנֵ֤י הָאָ֙רֶץ֙ נָפֹ֣צוּ צֹאנִ֔י
וְאֵ֥ין דֹּורֵ֖שׁ וְאֵ֥ין מְבַקֵּֽשׁ׃
But this may be a blessing in disguise. The big cities will be struck with nuclear, biological weapons and suffer from a lack of food during war. Plagues will follow. It is better to be driven out of such places before such things happen. The Lord promises to protect his sheep and rescue them and bring them back to the land of Israel. This has never happened! The Jews of the House of Judah have been partly restored but the lost tribes have never been restored. Read the conclusion of the Ezekiel 34.
12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
13 וְהֹוצֵאתִ֣ים מִנ־הָעַמִּ֗ים וְקִבַּצְתִּים֙ מִנ־הָ֣אֲרָצֹ֔ות וַהֲבִיאֹתִ֖ים אֶל־אַדְמָתָ֑ם וּרְעִיתִים֙ אֶל־הָרֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל בָּאֲפִיקִ֕ים וּבְכֹ֖ל מֹושְׁבֵ֥י הָאָֽרֶץ׃
14 בְּמִרְעֶה־טֹּוב֙ אֶרְעֶ֣ה אֹתָ֔ם וּבְהָרֵ֥י מְרֹֽומ־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל יִהְיֶ֣ה נְוֵהֶ֑ם שָׁ֤ם תִּרְבַּ֙צְנָה֙ בְּנָ֣וֶה טֹּ֔וב וּמִרְעֶ֥ה שָׁמֵ֛ן תִּרְעֶ֖ינָה אֶל־הָרֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃
The remnant of the flock of the House of Israel returns to the land of Israel. Hallelujah! The wicked shepherds are cut off. There is justice meted out. And there is mercy after all!
Jeremiah 31:10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
שִׁמְע֤וּ דְבַר־יְהוָה֙ גֹּויִ֔ם וְהַגִּ֥ידוּ בָאִיִּ֖ים מִמֶּרְחָ֑ק וְאִמְר֗וּ מְזָרֵ֤ה יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ יְקַבְּצֶ֔נּוּ וּשְׁמָרֹ֖ו כְּרֹעֶ֥ה עֶדְרֹֽו׃
So the true kingdom is slowly coming, birth pang by birth pang. The Dominionists will cause the true sheep to be scattered but the good shepherd will gather them. Meanwhile the Dominionists will not gain dominion, but will receive their just judgement. They will be destroyed and will not enter the Promised Land. And they will lose their own souls!
So there is some reward for the righteous and the patience of his Saints. The wicked my flourish for a short season but in the end they will be cut down. The lambs will be gathered in even while the goats hurl themselves into the abyss through following the wrong voice. There is a regathering coming for the remnant of the lost tribes and they will return to the Shomron and Greater Israel after World War 3.
Praise the Lord.
Word Study - 'Dominion'
I will contrast and compare two different types of Dominion.
There is a legitimate Dominion and an illegitimate. There is one sort of Dominion given to Adam, and another to Edom. One sort for the seed of the Woman another for the wicked seed of the serpent.
