SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY
BY: CHICO AND DEBBIE JIMENEZ
RELIGION IS NOT OF GOD
Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father (God) : and no man knoweth who the Son (Jesus) is, but the Father (God) ; and who the Father (God) is, but the Son (Jesus), and he (The Believer in Christ Jesus) to whom the Son (Jesus) will reveal Him (God).
Let’s study this verse for a minute.
In this verse Jesus said that The Father (God) has delivered all things unto Him (Jesus) and that “No man” knows who The Son (Jesus) is, accept for the Father (God) and no one knows who the Father (God) is, accept for The Son (Jesus) and those whom the Son (Jesus) chooses to reveal who the Father (God) is.
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural 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.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
We know by God’s Written Word that Jesus never changes and that what Jesus has ordained will come to pass.
Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:” it shall “not return unto me void,” but “it shall accomplish that which I please,” and “it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Now! With this said, let’s look back into the past, to the time when (God) Jesus Christ walked the earth. Nothing has changed.
Before Jesus Christ was ever born unto the virgin Mary, “religion was already in the world.”
Religion was created by satan to control and enslave the people. The Romans used religion to place people in bondage and used them as slaves to build their temples to worship their idols.
1. a. a building for the worship of a divinity or divinities
b. anything viewed as the dwelling place of God or a divinity
2. a. any of the Jewish sacred edifices for worshiping Jehovah, successively built in ancient Jerusalem
b. a synagogue, esp. of a Reform or Conservative congregation
3. a church
4. either of two sets ( and ) of London buildings housing two of England’s four principal law societies: their site was formerly occupied by the London branch of the Knights Templars
5. a building, usually of imposing size, etc., serving the public or an organization in some special way: a temple of art, a Masonic temple.
Religion has never been of God, neither will it ever be. When Jesus walked the earth, the religious leaders of that time wanted to get rid of Jesus, (Read the book of Acts and the Gospel of John chapter 19 ) because Jesus taught His followers to trust in God “The Father in heaven,” which infuriated the religious leaders.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
The religious leaders found out that Jesus was gaining more and more followers and the religious groups were losing people and money due to Jesus Christ’s gospel. Nothing has changed today, the same demonic spirit that was on the religious leaders back in the time of Jesus are still in the religious leaders of today.
Remember at the start of this writing, I mentioned that religion was started by satan to control the masses of people and to enslave them.

Religion is of the law and “ NOT of faith.”
This is why religious leaders of today will not teach or preach faith in God. They teach and preach the law, which puts the religious person in a state of bondage and condemnation.
