We are few and scattered here and there. Most are bloggers who are called discernment or watchmen bloggers. We have come out of the institutional churches teaching false doctrines. God brought us out and woke us up to these facts, some of us left kicking and screaming, others, once God turned on the light of truth, ran for the doors.
Many have come out of the Charismatic/charismania lie of false signs and wonders, healings, grave soaking, gold dust, angles and gem stones. A few have experienced both false doctrine and teaching of charismania and Independent Fundamentalist Baptist. Both are legalistic, abusive and teach error. Again most of us were in leadership positons as pastor’s, prophets, healers etc. so the awakening that God did in each of us was great and to the extreme, as only He can do.
The loss and pain came when; once we all acknowledged God’s correction and realized we were deceived, those that stood with us, worked with us, prayed with us and ministered with us were now opposed to us and we were anathema to them. Family, longtime friends, those in leadership over us turned from us and then on us as we spoke up and spoke out against the error. Bruised, battered and broken we all were outside of the church walls and truly were undone (outside the camp). God took each of us individually and began a long journey of healing, sorting out truth from the lies we believed for so long. Warning others became our focus. We found each other, we were hundreds of miles and States or Countries apart but thankful and blessed to have each other; yet we had no one physically we could fellowship with, study with, pray with. Our bond in Christ is sure with one another. God’s grace and mercy in bringing us together has truly been miraculous. Yet we still longed for the face to face fellowship and study. Through the years, this has been the number one complaint and desire from almost all we have come into contact with. We can find no one in our local area and we all are kind of at a loss as to how to go about finding the others that God has brought out of deception.
So we are prayerfully starting this blog and facebook page as a way of connecting those of us outside the camp. Those who have been bruised, battered and broken by the false religious systems and teachings, those who desire communion with other believers who are local in their/our areas. God has been faithful in bringing us out of deception, giving His mercy and grace to us and continuing to use us to warn others even though the ones we have loved the most, family and “church” family/friends, will not hear. Using us all, to reach others across the country and farther. Our hearts still ache for those within our immediate reach, those who may not have realized there are others outside the camp also.
If you are looking for someone in your own area to connect we have our “connect-points of contact” section where we have started to list other believers and the area they are from. We would also ask that if there is no one in your area listed that you prayerfully consider being a point of contact in your area. All we need is your name and an email address or fb url which ever you would prefer.
Exodus 33:7 “And Moses took the Tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, a far off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the Congregation: And it came to pass, that everyone which sought the Lord, went out unto the Tabernacle of the Congregation, which was without the camp.”
Hebrews 13:13-16 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not; for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
In verse 16 the word communicate means to fellowship, association, community, communion, joint participation. This is significant and as a result we desire to have and be in fellowship with other believers that have gone through the same type of purging process of leaving the institutional churches teaching false doctrines.
