Does your church have spiritual authority?
No. And it never will again.
In 2020 the Christian churches of the world voluntarily, without objection, with full publicity - handed-over their spiritual authority to the secular powers.
Whatever kind of Christian church - this happened...
Church buildings were closed. Pastors ceased to visit. There was no mass, no gathering of Christians to pray or sing, no laying-on of hands, no weddings or funerals or baptisms. Missionary activity ceased.
This was all done - willingly, while celebrating the fact - because church leaders handed-over full spiritual authority to the secular powers. Bishops did what they were told, said what they were supposed to say, and apparently thought what they were supposed to think; and did not do/ say/ think what they were told not to; protestant and other denominations likewise.
If, now, churches have-opened or will re-open - this is only because church leaders have been told it is okay. They believe they did right, and would do the same again.
They have also been told what they can and cannot do (say? think?) when the churches re-open - so the ultimate authority of the secular remains.
But what this all means is that spiritual authority in the world has been destroyed.
The secular authorities are atheist in assumptions, leftist in aims, anti-Christian in bias.
So there is no high-level spiritual authority in the world. It Has Gone.
It is gone - therefore it cannot be handed-back from the secular to the church leadership. When spiritual authority was handed over to the secular leadership spiritual authority died.
(Spiritual authority is not the kind of thing that can be put into deep freeze for a year, thawed-out and re-activated!)
Christians really need to grasp that since early 2020 the world has changed, spiritually, permanently.
The Christian church - meaning 'the church' of all professing Christians; and also each of the specific major denominations of Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Protestant denominations, Mormon and all others with a large institutional organization - has undergone the biggest and most devastating collapse since the time of Jesus.
2020 was the worst year for Christians, ever. Nothing in history comes close.
And the catastrophe is amplified many-fold by the near total denial that it has happened!
The mass of Christians (and almost all their 'leaders') are currently so corrupt that they cannot even notice and acknowledge when the fundamental supporting props of their church (whichever church) have been kicked away and stamped into dust!
Dishonesty is rife, and horribly compounded by dishonesty about dishonesty. In a world of insane nonsense; the simple and obvious truth is the one thing that is denied - and self-identified Christians are as bad as anybody.
Well, these are The End Times, with all that entails. We can't say we were not warned - for all the good it did.
What was not so clear from the prophecies is that the defining feature of the End Times is that Christians would not even notice!
Although that is a feature of the Antichrist idea - that self-styled followers of Christ would be following an imposter.
But instead of a charismatic and fascinating Antichrist who pretends to the mantle of Jesus; we instead have the grey, managerial puppets of a dreary global bureaucracy of international political institutions, finance, mass media, big business, etc.
We have a System Antichrist that is not even claiming to be 'another Christ', nor Christian, nor religious nor or spiritual in any way...
Yet The System is followed by church leadership and the mass of Christians as if it was The Good Shepherd himself.
It is literally incredible... but the new normal: our everyday reality.
