Mystery of Iniquity (Part X)

IMGTo qualify for tax-exempt status (501(c)(3)), such an organization must meet the following requirements… the organization’s purposes and activities may not  be illegal or violate fundamental public policy.
IRS tax guide for Churches and Religious Organizations


Is your church a 501(c)(3) organization? When we take this charitable designation into account any doubt that the American government is in partnership with churches is erased. Every 501(c)(3) organization is legally required to obey not only the nations law but fundamental public policy which in practice means state and local laws. So much for the separation of church and state.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...."
The First Amendment - United States Constitution

But what does that mean? It means if gay marriage is legal in your state these churches are legally required to accommodate them. That's not to say that this is currently being enforced, but that it is legally enforceable. The 501(c)(3) church has entered a binding legal contract and become partners with the government. As such these churches are not only required to obey present law but any future law or fundamental public policy that may be enacted.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV)

As we can surmise from the above passage receiving the mark of the beast in the hand or forehead will be a legal requirement. As such any church that opposes it will be subject to seizure by the government. This should come as no surprise as churches that violate the conditions of the 501(c)(3) contract are already being seized in certain cases.

While churches increasingly are becoming aware that they do not need to apply for 501(c)(3) status, it is not commonly known that they are treated as such under the law regardless of whether or not they have applied. That treatment applies to both the tax exemptions and the restrictive regulations the statute provides.

Unfortunately if the above information is correct a church cannot avoid being held to such standards, even by refusing to apply for 501(c)(3) status even though they clearly violate our first amendment rights. As sobering as it is to ponder legally, the spiritual ramifications are even more deadly.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Job 1:6 (KJV)

There are many Christians who were never taught one of the crucial lessons of the story of Job. There is a certain order within the kingdom of God. Satan is not allowed to touch a true Christian without legal rights; he must present himself before God and make his case against you to Him. Then God must render judgment as to whether He will allow Satan to afflict you or not. The most basic way we give Satan the legal right to afflict and deceive us? Sin. This is why He tells us "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6 KJV).

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV)

To put it in spiritual terms, a church that allows itself to become unequally yoked with the government and thereby puts itself under its authority instead of God's gives Satan legal right to use the church to attack the sheep. The 501(c)(3) church bears the government's seal of approval just like every bottle of booze and pack of cigarettes. They have become a powerful tool in Satan's arsenal, and very few of them will even try to resist because they have already been infiltrated by the antichrist system.

Mark my words; you will be able to tell what the mark of the beast is because the state run churches will all be in unanimous agreement that it is not the mark and you should take it.
