False Prophet And The 501C(3)
In the realm of Bible Prophecy, many don’t
realize the Internal Revenue Service actually fulfills portions of
predictions found in the book of Revelation.
Revelation introduces two “beasts,” who
are characters of note labeled Antichrist and the False
Prophet. Most religionists recognize the phenomenon of allegory,
likening the first “beast” to some form of tyrannical government,
with the second a type of a priestly figure, leading the people towards the
“…and [the False
Prophet] causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to [obey]
the first beast [Antichrist] before him” (Revelation 13:12).
Those who know the Scriptures recognize I’ve
put in brackets the word obey, in place of the actual wording in
the text, which uses the word worship. However, my usage is
appropriate in the light of additional Scriptural statements which tell the
reader the party which you’ve chosen to obey, indicates that by
choosing to obey this figure, you’ve become his servant.
“Know ye not, that to whom ye
yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether
of sin unto death, or of obedience unto
righteousness?” (Romans 6:16).
In the attempt to regulate religious practice in
clear violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution, the IRS has
inserted themselves between the people and God. Without IRS interference, the
people support whatever institution or ministry they believe reflects their
values, which enables the recipient of their fiscal support (the “church”) to
sustain its function of meeting the spiritual needs of its constituency.
With the 501C(3) statute, the IRS adds a financial
component, by converting a right into a privilege. This unconstitutional
and illegal maneuver affects the motivations of the people, as well as the
leadership of the church, and/or ministry organization.
At the same time, the “Antichrist”
figure is the beneficiary of the loyalty and financial support of the people
influenced by this metaphoric “False Prophet,” as the entity
"causes" the people to obey the first beast.
The False Prophet is described as
devious, in that his outward veneer does not represent his true nature.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but
inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Matthew 7:15).
In that the Internal Revenue Service claims they
have the authority to define the terms which clarify what constitutes a
legitimate gift through bestowal of the 501C(3) “church” status,
they are, in effect, deceiving the populace concerning their intervention into
the procedure, as it has Spiritual ramifications of which the IRS is
willfully ignorant, even when the Spirit driving it is maliciously concealed.
“And [the False Prophet] deceiveth
them that dwell on the earth by the means of those [powerful deeds]
which he had power to do in the sight of the [Antichrist] beast” (Revelation
The IRS has instituted 14 “criteria” for
what constitutes a genuine church in the ungodly pursuit of claiming
jurisdiction of religion, and the party who articulated those
“criteria” is not disclosed in the anecdotal literature of the
The audacity exhibited in assuming a regulatory
agency should have jurisdiction over the practice of religion in modern
American culture is downright breathtaking, as each of the 14 suggested
characteristics of legitimate religion have no corollary in the Holy Bible.
By influencing the people in their doctrinal
beliefs, the False Prophet “causes” the people to believe and
support efforts the Scriptures indicate will indirectly point
away from Jesus Christ, and towards the allegorical character referred to as
“…and he causeth
the earth and them which dwell therein to [obey] the first beast before
him” (Revelation 13:12).
The reality is, the support of the Antichrist
“beast” through acquiescence to the IRS intervention results in
people aiding in the funding of murder, corruption, and even Devil worship
– through taxation utilized to fund abortions, in addition to the tyranny
inherent in government overreach, and obviously wicked institutions.
For instance, the Internal Revenue Service recently
“fast tracked” 501C(3) approval of the After School Satan Club
– now a recognized “church” that seeks to indoctrinate
elementary age school children into Satanism.
Furthermore, by representing that this “False
Prophet” accommodates the people’s desire to help in the mission of
bringing Spiritual truth to others, the operation of the IRS equivocates to adding a financial reward
for such a mission, through the process of tax exemption.
This “exemption” leavens the pure
motivation of doing God’s work, which invokes the component of faith that
He is aware of your efforts, through mingling it with self interest via the
benefits endowed with the tax exemption articulated in the IRS statute labeled
A good portion of the people are unaware of the
subtle power of this element, as they’ve become accustomed to simple tax
deductibility on their income tax returns. Many have become conscious of tax
liability, and some 501C(3) “churches” even highlight the presumed
benefit towards the end of the year. Those who are most aware of the
circumstances surrounding this phenomenon are the ministry figures themselves
who, like all representatives of organizational structures, compete for
This adds the element of fiscal survival to their
decision making processes, and albeit inadvertently, colors their doctrine
as the ministries they represent cumulatively become dependent on their more
well healed constituents. Ministers cannot help but periodically wonder if a
particular sermon, or an adamant moral stance on certain issues, might offend
those who have historically supported their ministry.
The Bible calls this the “Leaven of the
Pharisees,” which is closely related to the concept of compromise. In the
Bible, the priestly sect of the Pharisees joined with another sect called the
Sadducees. The Pharisees were conservatives who believed in the supernatural,
the resurrection, and the judgment of God, while the Sadducees did not even
believe in life after death. The Pharisees compromised their beliefs, by joining
with the Sadducees, in order to sustain the bicameral council -- known as the
Sanhedrin -- that supported both sects. Jesus warned against
“Then Jesus said unto them, Take
heed and beware the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees” (Matthew
The American founders, and the architects of the
Bill of Rights, recognized the potential of government to corrupt the
relationship between the people and God, and wisely decided to completely avoid
The 501C(3) is voluntary and like so many modern contrivances,
it is poison tasting sweet. By interjecting the financial component into the
equation, the IRS has inserted themselves in the role of the “False
Prophet” through a subtle form of fiscal persuasion. The Bible further
describes the eternal fate of those who manifest the role of
“Antichrist” and the “False Prophet.”
“And the [Antichrist] beast
was taken, and with him the false prophet…These both were cast alive into
a lake of fire burning with brimstones” (Revelation 19:20).
There is a further analogy as two other characters
in the Bible, “Death” and “Hell,”
are actually synonymous with Antichrist, and the False Prophet. Because the
“False Prophet” (aka Hell), “causes” the people
to obey Antichrist, “Hell” facilitates the embrace of
“And [he] causeth the earth
and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast [Antichrist/Death]”
The Bible repeatedly addresses cycles of time, in
which events in the earthly sphere progressively deteriorate to a place in
which “Death” is pre-eminent, through the Spiritual
“engine” in which the entity of “Hell” assists in
“causing” the process to be activated. We refer to this system as
the Perdition Engine.
This deteriorative pattern is imaged by the cycle of
a “White Horse,” which progressively devolves into a time in which
a “Pale Horse” comes to prominence:
“And I looked, and behold a pale
horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell
followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the
earth, to kill…” (Revelation 6:8).
We note that “Death” and
“Hell” are capitalized in the book of Revelation, which is
indicative of the fact that they are proper names of the Spiritual personalities which animate
the earthly manifestation of these entities.
“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
Because these are mystical observations, it is self
evident that earthly courts and regulatory agencies have no intrinsic discernment
to supervise such behavior, so the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights echoed
the will of the people that the populace -- individuals and organizations
– have the right to determine the practice of religion – without
any government involvement at all.
“Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of
the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress
of grievances” (First Amendment, US Constitution)
The fact that the IRS has approved a religious tax
exemption of a group using the public schools to lead American children towards
Satanism, is the premier example of why government institutions cannot
be trusted to exhibit the discernment required to oversee religion.
“The [unredeemed] man
receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto
him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (I
The Good News is the American Bill of Rights is
still intact to guarantee the freedom to worship God according the leading of
the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures. However, the minions of the Devil that are
employed by the IRS continue to encroach on these rights, and believers have
been sound asleep as their pastors and preachers are feeding at
“Jezebel’s government table.” But to the Christian churches
who have followed in the leading of the Spirit of the False Prophet, I say the
“Ye have forsaken the commandments
of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim…and the prophets of Baal four
hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s
table” (I Kings 18:19)
