What is a Pharisee?

A Pharisee is a sanctimonious, hypocritical, self-righteous heretic who practices and advocates strict observance of external forms and ceremonies of religion or conduct without regard to the spirit. He makes a hypocritical show of religious devotion, piety, and righteousness. He is confident of his own righteousness, and is smugly moralistic and intolerant of the opinion and behavior of others. He pretends to have moral, religious beliefs and principles which he does not possess.

In simple terms, a Pharisee falsely thinks he is a god himself as he pretends to do God’s bidding, enforces God’s laws, knows God’s mind, and has the imagined authority of God in his hands His power is gained by lording over the humble, fearful, sinners who dare not even consider walking toward God because of their dirty transgressions and lowly state.

The Pharisees know how to direct spectacular, awe-inspiring productions of worship that focus on traditions and ceremony that they only are good enough to attend. They follow the laws of God that benefit and showcase their pretend righteousness, and demand strict adherence of their ways before they can even be approached by those of lower ways than them.

In Jesus Christ’s day, the Pharisees tried to trick Him up constantly as they tried to get Him to stop his message of God’s expectations of His followers to adhere to the “spirit of the law.” It was in the best interests of the Pharisees that people follow after the “letter of the law,” because it was impossible to keep. As long as people failed at keeping the “letter of the law,” the Pharisees remained in control and powerful.

Jesus Christ changed that at his baptism into the ministry of the LORD God. In his third miracle, the Pharisees and Jesus Christ locked into the first of many battles, as the issue of the laws of Sabbath was argued. A new day had dawned, and new way of God delivered by His Son, Jesus Christ, to the world. No longer was it about the “law” but about the deeper things that He Willed His people to know and walk. No longer could power be gained by enforces of the law, as the faithful gained His ultimate power through walking in faith with His Son Jesus Christ leading them toward Him! Praise Be to God!

Now here is the part that is important for you to understand in these Last Days:

The Pharisee hypocrites are still trying to enforce their traditions and laws today, and they are trying to prevent many people from approaching God. As long as they can do this, they maintain their self-righteous glory, and the power to control others in the name of
their false religion.

This is some of the ways a Pharisee practices his sanctimonious hypocrisy today:

Pharisees loudly and falsely proclaim the absolute and eternal damnation of God upon the sexually deviants, with a focus on the dirty sins of homosexuals and the exclusion of attention to the dirty sins of the heterosexuals.

They uphold the crimes of monetary gain by white collared affluent as they build great shrines with their name and fame, and judge the poor harshly when they steal a loaf of bread to feed their family.

They attend the false worship of themselves every Sunday in the pomp and circumstance of tradition and honor that they deserve as the impoverished are allowed to admire them from the distance.

Many sinners are kept from the congregation of Pharisees for being unworthy as all pretend righteous are called by them to do service for their glory. That false doctrine of direct exclusion of sinners that is proclaimed by their golden leaders that sit upon their altars, is confusing and sometimes prevents sinners from approaching the cross of Jesus Christ, as sinners are convinced of their unworthiness to come to God.

Here is the Word of God and the knowledge of the Faithful, which the pretend Pharisees can never comprehend:

Mark 2:17

“When Jesus heard [it], he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Mark 2:17)

JESUS CHRIST COMES TO THE WORLD FOR THE SINNER, NOT FOR THE SELF MADE HOLY!

All murderers, adulterers, thieves, abusers, lustful, sexually deviant, morally corrupt, dirty sinners, Jesus Christ can be your Lord and Savior. He will never be the Lord of those that consider themselves His equal in glory and righteousness!

This is important!

Don’t wait until you become holy to come to Jesus Christ!

That requirement for holiness is something that the Pharisees invented to have control and power over the sinner. Bring your sins, your dirtiness, your shame and your pathetic nature as you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. Through his crucifixion on the cross and resurrection from death, Jesus has brought death to sin. Your acceptance of Him as your Savior releases that power and hold of sins that prevent you from having a relationship with God.

Jesus does not expect you to come to him holy, and cannot be your King or your Savior if you think that you are. Don’t let the Pharisees of this world trick you out of becoming one of the Faithful and True worshipers of the LORD God and followers of Jesus Christ through their false teachings!

Trust the Word of God and the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on your behalf. Your sins of nature will lose their power over you the minute you bring them to the cross of Jesus. Once you are part of the Kingdom of God, He will give you many skills, teachings and
techniques to overcome your sinful nature and develop your righteous spirit in the Way that He Wills.

It takes time and it takes faith, and most importantly, it takes Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the LORD God to bring holiness to your spirit. Don’t let the pitiful Pharisee hypocrites trick you out of being freed forever from the holds of sin! For God’s sake and yours, push past their pretend holiness and their traditional barriers, and run forward toward the true holiness of God Himself!
