I want to share a special message from someone who has recently reached out to me. Brian Bailey has been filled with wisdom in light of the crumbling current events around us. Brian and I had a discussion this week over the wisdom of Ephesians 6:12, and I hope it blesses you as much as it has blessed me.


Brian, like most of us sees how corrupt leadership in our houses of worship and in politics are taking many on a ticket to hell. Hell on earth and hell eternally. Please join along as I share Brian’s message; beginning with -Romans 12:2. "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

The Church is presented in the word of God as polar opposite to the world system. Sadly, it appears that much of the body of Christ has forgotten this. We have become dependent on a system which, in all reality, stands in stark contrast to the pure doctrines of the bible. We have been deceived by the powers that be who present themselves as our benevolent keepers despite the corruption and depravity which they have displayed.


This is due in part to a fundamental misunderstanding of specific verses and passages in the Word. One of those, listed above, makes clear that we are not to conform. We are not to take part in the rampant abominations, the deceptions and we are certainly not supposed to hang on every word of "experts" and "Scientists" so called.


This is in error. If we ask ourselves the question, "is this decision based on the Word of God, or on the words of mere men?", we might be horrified to realize that many of our decisions had nothing to do with the pure Word of God but had everything to do with false science and dark, worldly propaganda. We have allowed ourselves as a body to be indoctrinated into the world system. “This sad reality is the catalyst for my writing this,” writes Brian Bailey.


"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places." -Ephesians 6:12 I have heard some pretty crazy interpretations of this verse. I have heard it presented as a hierarchy of angelic beings, demons, etc. So, let's look at this verse a little more closely.


A) "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers".

So, the rulers in this verse would be the rough equivalent of your city, county and state governments. This is not about spiritual beings at all, as we will see shortly...


B)"against the powers" The "powers" would be basically federal governments and the subsidiary agencies they control such as the NIH, the CDC, the FDA and the DOH. Again, the spirit realm is not yet mentioned or indicated.

C)"against the world forces of this darkness" Here we reach the global establishment. Organizations such as the UN, the WHO, the WTO the WEC pretty much anything with global influence including large corporations who, in the final analysis, are often more powerful than entire countries.


D)"against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places." Now we reach the actual mention of the Spiritual. The Word translated, "Spiritual" is the Greek word, "Pneumatikos” in the Strongs Concordance. [πνευματικός Gr. # 4152 Strongs].

*One might ask why this is important. It's important because we are commanded not to add to or take from the word of God.


To apply a spiritual context to A, B or C would be to add to text because, the variant of the Greek word for "Spirit", ['Pneuma', πνεῦμα Greek #4151 Strongs] isn't used in reference to any of those agencies or titles and, therefore, cannot be superimposed based on the context of the passage. What this verse says, quite literally, is that we struggle against those very organizations and governmental powers who are now attempting to deceive you. I believe this is all very important as I see a lot of professing believers swaying to the symphony, as it were, of the worlds' dark orchestra.


I have seen pastors insisting on submission to mandates which God would in no way agree with. I see believers, who should only fear God; instead fearing disease, fearing the Chinese, fearing pretty much anything which their televisions tell them to. This fear would certainly be an effect of spiritual forces or Pneumatikos as mentioned in D. The Bible never says we are to fear the world and, in fact, Jesus makes it clear that even if they could kill you, you should not fear them.


“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." -Matthew 10:8 “I say to you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. “But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!" -Luke 12:4,5.

Where did the church make the left turn? At what point did we decide that these powers somehow outrank God and all that He has said? Jesus makes clear the contrast between the elect and the unregenerate. He in no way suggests that governments or their agencies (or churches, for that matter) had the authority to govern the lives of His people or to 'make exception' of anything HE commanded!

The Church 'does have authority'. [...if used on our Heavenly Creator Father’s authority]


However, if one were to study the first 3 chapters of Revelation and noted everything said to those churches, you'd find that many of them had abandoned the WORD in favor of this dark world. They gave up life for the sake of temporary riches or the 'illusion of peace and safety' which, is exactly what the globalists are now offering...don't take the bait! You have a divinely inspired responsibility to test anything that any church leader is stating against the actual Word of God.


In the present context and considering all of the bible study tools available, we are without excuse when it comes to knowing the Word!) Look up -2 Timothy 3:16-4:3 and John 17:17 for reference. Who are you listening to?

While the Lord says, " We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one." -1 John 5:18,19.


If the whole world lies in the power of the evil one, why would we go to the agents and agencies appointed by them to learn what we ought to do? What does a world submersed in iniquity, deception, perversity and corruption have to offer the sons and daughters of the Most High? How did we get to this point? We have got to get back to the word of God.


HE is the only one we should fear. We ought to weigh our paradigm against the clear teaching of scripture and if we do, we will find that we have been insidiously tainted and defiled by the darkness aforementioned. We should not rely on the likes of CNN or MSNBC and should shield ourselves and our children from even hearing them. We should not go to agencies, crookedly sold out and under the power of corporations, to learn how we should live.


What they offer is not life, the puncture modality is not life, the CDC the NIH the FDA and our entire governmental system peddles death, just like the WORD says. I feel I need to add one more thing here. The word clearly teaches that the world and its leaders have completely abandoned God. The church has done so too. This is not to say that there aren't still righteously intended Pastors and other church leaders but, a huge falling away has already begun and it's because of compromise.


People compromise their faith with the world. They profess Christ and then heed instead the fear inducing deception of the media, the government and, sadly enough, apostate teachers presenting themselves as saints in the established church. A lot of pastors have abandoned the pure word for some amalgamation of worldly, pharmaceutically based, government exalting 'faith', with little 'tidbits of the gospel', and worshipping the establishment more than the Creator.


It is time to examine ourselves. Take a step back and consider who we really trust. We should prayerfully consider all that the WORD has said about God, and all that God has said about the World and men in general. We need to repent of our reliance on these dark entities and reestablish our faith in the Father of the True Light.


You cannot trust the establishment and God at the same time, you simply can't. ‘Thus says the LORD, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when prosperity comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, a land of salt without inhabitant.


Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD. For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit." -Jeremiah 17:5-8 So, who do you trust?


Have you compromised your faith to conform to the darkness? Have you caved to peer pressure for fear of what your neighbors might think? Are you currently attending a Church who compromises or who pushes you to conform to the world?


You must abandon the world and its deception. Place your faith in Jesus! He is the Way the Truth and the LIFE. What this world is offering is death. Place your faith in God, study His Word or be deceived. If you have already placed your faith in Him, hear His Word: "But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one." -2 Thessalonians 3:3


The Lord bless the listener and/or the reader with wisdom and strength to endure what is coming in the blessed Name of Jesus, Amen. Signed, Brian J. Bailey.
