Politics and the Kingdom



WASHINGTON - It seems many within the body of Christ today are participating, yet again, in the centuries-old deception of believing the Kingdom of God (Yahweh) is compatible with the diabolical kingdoms of this world.  What do I mean by this? 

In the 4th century, the fairly new entity known as Christianity melded itself to the political systems of human governance through the unification of 'church' and 'state.'  This occurred when Roman Emperor Constantine the Great professed a conversion from his pagan past and instead began to embrace the tenets of Christianity.  Most historians worth their salt have shown this profession of faith by Constantine to be simply political expediency rather than a true scriptural conversion. For example, Constantine proclaimed that the Jesus Christ of Scripture (completely juxtaposed to His holy nature) commanded him, through a self-proclaimed epiphany, to murder his enemies under the sign of the cross, later identified as the symbol of the Knights Templar. Likewise, many today proclaiming themselves Christians have again aligned themselves with the antichrist governments of the world in the hopes of once more ushering in a physical manifestation of the Kingdom of God on earth, which is, in reality, actually a carnal kingdom and not the true spiritual kingdom of heaven.  

Fast forward to the Middle Ages and again, through the deceptive misrepresentations of Scripture, men hailed as great reformers once more convinced sincere adherents of Biblical Christianity that murdering one’s enemies was indeed the will of God.  It was through the teachings of Martin Luther and John Calvin that Puritanism gained a stronghold in the governments of Europe and later the United States of America - so much so that this 'version' of Christianity overtook the long-standing belief that Christians were to be the bearers of the 'Good News' through obedience, longsuffering, kindness and patience of loving their enemies. It instead taught that Christians were to be the instruments of God to bring in a physical Kingdom by violent force, if necessary, toward those who would dare defy the so-called commandments from Heaven.  

In America today, this deceptive teaching has again arisen within the Church of Jesus Christ.  Many believers have aligned themselves with the kingdoms of this world all the while remaining oblivious to the fact their unification of politics and religion has once more led them down the slippery slope to destruction.  

How appalling it is to see so-called men and women of God align themselves with the Roman Caesars of our present era all in the belief that they are fulfilling the Word of God.  

True Biblical Christianity and politics have not, nor ever will, mix.  The kingdom of darkness has no place alongside the Kingdom of Light, yet how many self-proclaimed Christians in the United States believe it is their solemn duty to their Savior Jesus Christ to expend precious energy casting a vote for the devil, so to speak? That is, whether one considers themselves a patriot or an anarchist, a Republican or a Democrat, a liberal or a conservative, they all agree, Christian or otherwise, that it is their duty to involve themselves in the carnal kingdoms of this world.  

How many Christians cast a vote for the current U.S. President, Donald Trump, last November?  Without the Evangelical vote Mr. Trump would have been assured defeat.  Yet Christians believed it their heavenly duty to empower yet another antichrist leader.  In this case, it’s a billionaire who loves money.  What do the Scriptures teach us concerning the love of money?  Anyone?  

It sickens me today to hear people of faith call for the annihilation of their fellow men through war, especially if they happen to be adherents under the spell of Islam.  How many Christians stand right behind their political and religious leaders calling for the physical destruction of their perceived enemies?  Men like John Hagee and John MacArthur, despite their denials, are nothing less than false teachers leading droves of Christians into a Christ-less eternity.  How can so-called Christians call for the murder of the unbelieving world?  Does our God take pleasure in the death of the wicked?  Does He not long for all to be saved? 

What about the Scriptures?  What about loving our enemies and doing good to those who persecute us?  What about obeying the just as well as the unjust?  

Most Christians today are "in-name" only believers.  Could they really stand with the John Husses and William Tyndales of centuries past?  Could they stand with those who have given up their lives for the sake of Christ and His Gospel?  

Christian, if you believe it is righteous to stand behind anyone, including the current President of the United States of America, who calls evil good and good evil all the while professing a faith in Jesus Christ, I'm sad to report you've been deceived.  Some of the most deceived believers today are those who fight in the Armed Forces.  They’ve been told to serve God is to serve Country.  To be obedient to God, they’re told, is to kill, if commanded, their enemies for the preservation of the State.  What an abomination to a holy, loving God.  How many more Muslims must die to satiate the blood-thirst of psuedo-Christianity? 

Never has the unbelieving world been the enemy of Christianity. It has been its greatest mission field.  We do not war against flesh and blood.  Christians who support the physical destruction of their enemies are no better than the ancient Jews who cried for the murder of their Messiah.  

Wake up, Christian.  Politics is no realm for the believer.  Most who state otherwise are still stuck under the Law.  They still reside immersed in the Old Covenant cheering the day when the 10 Commandments, once again, become the Law of the land.  They decry the politics of this world as though the politicians and religious leaders are somehow straying from their authority, yet all the while endlessly support them in the futile hope that they can make this world a better place.  

Friends, this world writhes in darkness.  It is the realm of the unbelieving.  Whether American, Russian, Israeli or Arab, the leaders of this world are NOT Christian.  Should we really expect them to behave as such?  Then why do many constantly seek to reform politics?  Has the endless list of compromising theologians ever truly changed the politics of the ungodly and unbelieving?  Why, for example, has America continually degenerated into a cesspool of sin and unbelief all the while having professing Christians in high places?  Could it be that the 'Christianity' of those within the political realm is, in fact, disingenuous?  

I always like to remind those who proclaim a faith in Christ Jesus that never once do we read of the apostles and disciples pining for this candidate or that in either the Sanhedrin or the Senate of Rome.  While we are to pray for our leaders, are we supposed to support them?  While we are to obey our leaders are we to encourage them in their unbelief?  While we, as Christians, are commanded to submit to both the evil and the good, does this mean we also call for the blood of innocents simply because our religious and/or political leaders identify them as national enemies of the State?  

Did the Apostle Paul use his Roman citizenship to defend his right to carry a sword for personal protection?  Did any of the Apostles defend their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?  NO THEY DID NOT.  They were martyred for their Faith.  They sought to die to themselves.  They sought to give up their so-called liberties for righteousness.  They were set ablaze in the gardens of Nero and fed to ferocious animals in the middle of Rome.  

How many so-called Christians today state arrogantly it is their God-granted right to keep and bear arms and, if necessary, kill in order to protect their supposed rights?  Do such even understand the Gospel?  Do they even follow Jesus Christ? Are they even citizens of heaven?  They are lovers of self more than lovers of God.  They are not seeking Christ and His righteousness but going about to establish a righteousness of their own.  America is full of such professors.   

True Christianity is and always will be hated most vehemently by those who despise righteousness and refuse to obey the kingdom laws of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, shouldn't we, as people of faith and children of light, present to the world a loving alternative to the darkness rather than align ourselves with it? 

The kingdom of light which Christians are to reside in recognizes no geographical borders, it displays no national pride, it does not idolize military hero worship and, most of all, it doesn’t plant a false hope in a carnal piece of earth in the Middle East.  

The nationalistic pride sweeping over the planet in our present time is laying the foundation for the greatest world war yet to come.   

Sadly, most of Christendom already deceived through years of religious programming will perceive this as the Battle of Armageddon, the End of the Age, and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.  Little do they realize this is yet another deception fostered upon the unregenerate masses designed to further detour them toward a kingdom filled with darkness and despair much like the Dark Ages of centuries past when an antichrist church, in league with the State Politic, horrifically slaughtered millions all in the name of religion.  

Isn't it about time Christians lived in the only Kingdom they were called to inhabit?

Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice

WASHINGTON - As the world is on the cusp of yet another 'new year', according to the Western calendar, I thought it apropos to announce something of great significance relative to Zephon Ministries.

In the coming year this blog-site will be edited and perhaps some articles that are presently posted will be slated to be expunged.  

For those who have followed this ministry over the last two decades you well know that by His Grace it has always been this author's intent to follow the leading of the Spirit in the pursuit of Truth no matter where it may lead or what it may entail. 

Earlier publications such as Prodigia Profiteri and Jacob's Letter from the 1990's were no longer published and even the Zephon Ministries website was pulled from the Internet a little over 5 years ago.  This was done for no other reason than to be responsible and cease teaching things that were not solely based on Scripture nor a sound biblical hermenuetic.

In like fashion, this blog-site may retain all it's articles thereby allowing the reader to follow the progression of thought and understanding over the years held by this ministry but with the strong caveat that due to greater light being shown the older articles do not reflect the current theology of this ministry.  Or, this blog-site may simply delete those articles which have since been proven to be, biblically, in error.

Case in point, is the eschatological view of Zephon Ministries.  This ministry began as staunchly Dispensational from a premillennial standpoint.  That is, concerning the "last days" - Zephon Ministries considered apocryphal books of the Bible to be nearly entirely yet future with regards to especially New Testament writings.  Sharing this view is almost the whole of Western, especially American, Evangelicalism today.

Zephon Ministries, in particular this certain author, has been gradually surrendering to what he believes to be a more biblical exegesis.  Namely, an eschatology whose hermenuetic is Preterist in application rather than Dispensational.

While this is still a minority view today and is sadly viewed as heretical by most within modern Evangelicalism this false accusation is unwarranted, I believe.  When one truly reads the Scripture allowing it to interpret itself there are many Scriptural questions that Preterism fully answers whereas Dispensational theology leaves these questions open-ended, confused, and altogether unanswerable from a biblical standpoint.

May I ask that you please be patient as this author works through this transition.  And as always, your questions, comments, and concerns are always dutifully noted and responded to in a timely manner - this will not cease.

So please look forward to upcoming videos addressing this subject on new episodes of The Biblicist in 2017.

THE BIBLICIST - EPISODE 1

Episode One Now on YouTube
WASHINGTON -  Zephon Ministries announces its new series:  "The Biblicist", hosted by Todd Diezsi.  This program will attack a lot of 'sacred cows' within Christendom today which are unbiblical and in dire need of revision.

Most Christians DO NOT read their Bibles.  They say they do, but the facts betray their ignorance of the Word.  The churches of Jesus Christ today are filled, literally, with unbelievers.

The Biblicist episodes will seek to prod the 'pew warmers', the 'lukewarm' and the unbelieving toward a deeper study of the fundamentals of the Apostolic Faith.  The current gospel being promulgated by those who claim to be Christian is, in most cases, completely foreign to the Holy Scriptures.

Our first episode is now available on YouTube.

Enough Already!

WASHINGTON - For one who has been in "the game" for almost 30 years now it amazes me still how easily people are duped; especially those who claim to be born-again Bible believing Christians.  Now granted, years ago I was as gullible as anyone, it seemed.  When I heard voices like Rush Limbaugh, Jack Van Impe, Alex Jones, Lindsey Williams, Chuck Baldwin, Bo Gritz, Steven Quayle, Billy Graham, Pat Robertson and others in the "Christian" political realm speak, my fears were ignited and I began looking under every rock for a conspiracy.  Yet, as I've matured and 'let go' of childish understandings I've come to realize, as have many others, that the men above are only charlatans posing as Christian voices.  Men like this number in the hundreds today who continue pulling the perpetual wool over peoples eyes keeping them in a constant state of readiness and fear in anticipation of their contrived scenario for the end of days.

One needn't possess a doctorate in rocket science to understand things are getting progressively worse, and this by design.  What troubles me most today is many speak as though they understand what the New World Order is all about and yet, they still haven't a clue.  Such people talk as though dark times the world over are soon to descend upon us and we must be prepared.  Whether that readiness be in the form of what some today refer to as "prepping", both physically and financially - or having one's spiritual house in order- very ignorant folks are running around preparing for something that is already occurring.  They've been deceived.

The New World Order is here.  It has been present for quite some time.  It is not something to come but is something that is being honed every year until the 'control grid' is completely in place.  Naive teachers today would have us to look to the future for some Worldwide Kingdom of an antichrist when such a kingdom has long existed already - at least for the past 2,000 years.  I don't mean to purposely step on my fellow Christians toes, spiritually speaking, but wake up guys.  There is no end of the world coming.  This earth has hundreds of years left, if not thousands, perhaps even millions.  The so-called signs of the Apocalypse you perceive to be taking place around you are designed to lull you further into your slumber.  For Christians, the main cause of this deceit is known as Dispensationalism.  It has been the culprit behind many not being able to rightly divide the Scriptures and thus relying more on occult mysticism or the "inner" voice within to determine what is Truth rather than actually studying the Written Word.

This world has always been under the auspices of the Evil One.  His kingdom is physical and it has not been vanquished but only continues to enlarge itself.  There is no future antichrist - such a figure is past.  There is no future rapture - such fanciful teaching is unbiblical.  And there certainly is no Great Tribulation in our future as many false teachers today within Christian prophecy circles love to rail about.  Such minds have no grasp of history and in fact, are actually disinformation agents whether they realize it or not.  I've found most actually court disaster, as did I, hoping the Kingdom of God would materialize when it will never be seen with physical eyes.  This is why most "eyes" in so-called Christendom today centered around prophecy are focused on the State of Israel when this satanic country has absolutely no bearing on Biblical events perceived to be yet future.  Yet millions fall in droves to those who would have them look to Palestine for their coming Messiah when His kingdom will never again inhabit flesh and blood.

What troubles me lately is how naive men and women point to natural disasters and financial turmoil as though these are surely signs of the end of the age.  I was guilty of being one who bought into these cleverly crafted lies years ago.  Today, 'mad science' (as it is called) has produced everything from artificially induced earthquakes, dynamic floods, powerful hurricanes and severe droughts.  

Financiers who own more than 99% of the worlds resources presently cause economic booms and busts at will. They create military wars and depose international leaders on a whim.  These are not signs of an impending Apocalypse.  They are trademarks of a ruling elite so pervasive that not even religion escapes their grasp.  They completely control what is termed "Christianity" in America today.

And don't get me started on the so-called "Patriot Movement."  These folks love of the physical world so overshadows any semblance of Biblical Christianity they may adhere to that I've personally found them to be some of the most ignorant people when it comes to reality.  Their blood-thirst for revenge betrays their allegience to a false deity.

Recently I had the displeasure of being on the American East Coast.  Researching various locations I happened to find myself in the Vanderbilt Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island.  Most of those taking the tour alongside myself were completely unawares of the absolute Satanism represented all around them.  Unlike myself, who ended my tour rather abruptly with disgust, everyone else seemed oblivious to the darkness that permeated the Vanderbilt Estate.  Yet, the god displayed all over this sickening display of wealth is the very same god most patriots and quasi-Christian Americans reverence every day.  The American Patriot movement has always been on the wrong side of the fence.

So what's my point you ask?  Simply this:  enough already!

Wake up and do your research.  Study to show yourself approved instead of relying upon some "voice" in your head, heart or soul convincing you you've got it all figured out.  What you believe to be Truth is, often times, the complete opposite.

I'm ashamed of how much time I wasted listening to those who hadn't a clue years ago, and in most cases, still don't.

This world has gone to hell already.  There is no saving it.  It is the domain of darkness.  As Christians who belong to another kingdom, a heavenly spiritual kingdom, our purpose is to pull others from the flames not reassure them everything will be okay in the end as the occult mystics teach.   This world is indeed passing away.  It is destined for complete and utter destruction one day in the distant future.  And most souls along with it beyond salvation.  The lie of Universalism soothes many into a false sense of security.

So frankly, who cares what happens to America?  It's god is Mammon and it fully deserves to collapse.  And it will.  Yes, tough times are here and they're only going to get worse. 

Wake up.  You don't need some egotistical 'prophet' to tell you how to hunker down and prepare for the worst.  The worst is now - the "even worse" is coming.  But life goes on.

If someone is frightening you about the future they themselves are scared and fear the unknown.  Are you afraid?  Do you fear the future?  Why?

I encourage you to enjoy life.  Live everyday as if it were your last but know that things are all under control.  It all depends on who you yield yourself to . . . if you like listening to those who claim to "speak" for their god then test the spirits.  I think you'll find most of them are conglomerations of nothing but the epitome of "vain imaginations".
