“Substitution – 202”…Blog [part 2-of-3]
Just how… do ‘you’ then; “Test your dreams & visions”…? How do you know “IF”… they are from God, the God of the Bible…? With what measure do you validate what you claim is from God? I have been born again for over 30-years and yes, I know that God does not count seniority. But do you really believer that Truth is more prevalent or less prevalent? Those on both the TV and Radio… who claim to be Christian… do you really believe all they… ‘Say & Teach’… without ‘validating’ it with… the Holy Word of God…? These blogs cover what is called new prophecy for today.
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you = when ‘all’ men = shall speak well of you! = For so = their fathers = did to = the ‘false’ prophets.
*** (Matthew 7:15) Beware of = ‘false prophets’ = who come to you = in sheep's clothing, = but inwardly = they are ravening wolves.
*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) Then if = ‘any’ man = shall say to you, = Lo, here is Christ! = Or, There! = Do ‘not’ = believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For false Christs’ = and false prophets = will ‘arise’ = and show ‘great signs and wonders’; = so much so that, = ‘if’ it were possible, = they would ‘deceive’ = even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, = I [Jesus] = have told =you = ‘beforehand’.
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also = ‘false prophets’ = among the people, = even as = there ‘will be’ = false teachers = among you, = who secretly = will bring in ‘destructive heresies’, = even denying the Master = who bought them, = bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And “Many” = will follow = their pernicious ways, = and = because of them = the way of Truth = will be = ‘evil’ spoken of.
About now… there are some that will… ‘Affirm & Say’… that God speaks to them today! They have placed their… “Experience”… as their validation; of the Truth from God. Many have had parents who have had a particular denomination or Church teaching and passed it on to them. They simply follow their previous teaching, ‘without’ validating it with and by the… “Holy Word of God!” In the days of Jesus, He called it, in the gospels, the… “Traditions of the Elders.”
*** (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered = and = said to them, = “You Err”, = not knowing the Scriptures = nor = the power of God.
*** (Luke 11:42) But woe to you, Pharisees! = For you tithe mint and rue = and = every herb, = and ‘pass over’ = “Judgment” = and = the ‘love of God’. = You ought to have ‘done’ these, = and not to leave the other undone.
Those that say God… speaks to them in ‘dreams & visions’… do not even ‘know’… the Word of God. Strange as it may seem, “Most” that say they are Christians, have never studied the OT Hebrew and the NT Greek. In the above Blog, “Which Bible – 101”, there is a study on such items. The English translations we read are often… religiously and culturally influenced. The NT was written in Greek, where the text agrees in person, number and gender. Hence the Truth of the Word of God, cannot be mistaken, as in the subject of… ‘Female Pastors’, or the “144,000” Jewish Male Virgins in… “Revelation 14:4”
*** (John 8:42-43-44) “Jesus” = said to them, = If God were your father, = you would love Me, = for I went forth = and came from God; = for I ‘did not’ come of Myself, = but He [God] = sent Me [Jesus].
(John 8:43) Why do you = ‘not know’ = My speech? = Because = you ‘cannot’ [will not] = hear My Word.
(John 8:44) You are = of the Devil = as [your] father, = and = the lusts of your father = you ‘will’ do. = He was a ‘murderer’ = from the beginning, = and = ‘did not’ = abide in = The Truth = ‘because’ = there is ‘no’ = Truth in him. = When he speaks = a “Lie”, = he speaks = of ‘his own’, = for he is = a “Liar” = and = the ‘father’ of it.
*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) For = such ones = are ‘false apostles’, = ‘deceitful workers’, = transforming ‘themselves’ = into = the apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) Did not = ‘even’ Satan = marvelously transform himself = ‘into’ = an angel of light?
(2Cor 11:15) Therefore = it is ‘no great thing’ = ‘if’ = his ministers = also transform themselves = as ministers of righteousness, = whose end = shall be = according to their works.
Dreams & Visions… have been the “Substitutions”… for the Holy Word of God! Many today, simply say that God speaks to them, without the Word! Surely you don’t expect me to… ‘Believe You’… when the Holy Word of God… says ‘different’…? A friend of mine, who says they were a Born Again Christian, and had attended Bible School… told me that God, had told them to get a divorce. When I presented them with what God had said in His Word, and they would not speak to me anymore. How strange, that the god [small-g] they knew, ‘did not’ use, the Word of God [capital-G]…?
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are = foolishness = to him; neither can he = know = them, because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If = they do NOT speak according TO this Word, = it is because NO light = is in them.
*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they = do NOT = hear Moses and the Prophets, = they will NOT = be persuaded, = even though one rose from the dead.
Surely as the sun rises and sets… someone will “Substitute”… their own way, for the Holy Word of God. It happened with Cane & Able and is happening today also. Many churches have departed from the “Complete Authority of the Word of God”… and gone on to their Politically Correct Agendas. The Scriptures speak to this over and over again. You will simply… “Obey God and His Word”… or… You will ‘Obey’ your own desires. Can it be any ‘simpler’ than that…?
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being = ‘doers’ of The Word, = and = ‘not merely’ = hearers = who = ‘deceive’ themselves.
*** (Luke 6:46) "Why do = you keep calling = Me [Jesus] = 'Lord, Lord,' = but ‘don't do’ = what = I tell you?
*** (John 15:9-10-11) As the Father = has loved Me, = so I [Jesus] = have loved you; = continue in My love.
(John 15:10) If = you ‘keep’ = My commandments, = you ‘shall’ abide = in My love, = even as = I [Jesus] = have ‘kept’ = My Father's commandments = and = abide in His love.
(John 15:11) I [Jesus] = have spoken these things = to you so that = My joy = might remain in you = and = your joy might be full.
How about a Review…? Preamble = It is the Holy Spirit, Who brings, ‘Salvation to the Sinner’ by the Grace of God. It is He, that teaches one, from the Word of God… “Gods’ Truth”. The Holy Spirit Born[s] one Again, from Above, by the will of the Father and He spanks those that are really His children. Without the Holy Spirit… one ‘cannot’… even begin to understand the Truth of the Word of God…! Substitution by Anything Else… for the Holy Word of God… is not from the God of the Bible; Jehovah God! And is ‘NOT’… the Truth of the Holy Word of God!
*** (1Corinthains 2:12-to-16) But we = have ‘not received’ = the spirit of the world, = but = the [Holy] Spirit from God, = so that we = ‘might know’ = the things = that are freely given = to us = by God.
(1Co 2:13) These things = we ‘also’ speak, = ‘not in words’ = which man's wisdom teaches, = but = which the Holy Spirit teaches, = ‘comparing’ = spiritual things = with ‘spiritual’.
(1Co 2:14) But = the natural man [Not Born Again] = does ‘not receive’ = the things = of the Spirit of God, = for they are = ‘foolishness’ to him; = neither = can he ‘know’ them, = because they are = ‘spiritually’ discerned.
(1Co 2:15) But = he who is spiritual = ‘judges all things’, = yet he himself = is judged by no one.
(1Co 2:16) For who has known = the mind of the Lord, = that he may instruct Him? = But we have = the mind of Christ.
End of part 2 of 3..!
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and = praise Your Name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for “Your Truth's” sake; = for You [God] = have magnified = Your Word = “ABOVE – ALL” = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = “The Truth” = of the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
*** (Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. = Do not = My Words = do good = to him = who = walks uprightly?
