“Phony People – 101”…Blog.
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did to the false prophets.
There are Many… social networks, Face Book, Multiply, Jubilee, My Space and the list goes on and on and on. There are too many to keep up with and I am continually receiving invites from friends who have left one; only to join another. But in all of these, there are those Parading around as “Pastors – Prophets – Apostles – Evangelists” and the ‘Like’. The ‘Falsely’ claim some Biblical Spiritual office and have a following of disciples who ‘do not’ know or care what the Bible teaches.
*** (Matthew 15:13) But He [Jesus] answered and said, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up.
(Matt 15:14) Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Occasionally, I respond… to such a posting with the Bible to test and see IF that person, is real or not. About now someone is saying… “Who are you to judge another?” A question like that is simply an indication that the asker… ‘does not’ know his or her… “Bible!” Contrary to what one thinks, says or does, the Bible should be our guidebook… to Test all Spiritual Truth! Is that not so? Below is the link to my blog on “Correct Biblical Judging”.
*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
*** (Ephesians 5:9-10) for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and Truth,
(Eph 5:10) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord.
Just because someone… calls themselves… Pastor – Apostle – Evangelist – and the Like… does not make it so! Most are ‘not’ Ordained by a recognized church body, nor have they completed Bible college and or Seminary. When questioned, their response goes something like this… God calls those into His Work! What they ‘purposely’ miss are those instructions in “1 & 2 Timothy” for Church leaders and Pastors. They are to themselves, their own authority… Not the Holy Scriptures. IF I live in a Garage, can I call myself a Car…? … NOT!
*** (James 3:1) Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more severely.
*** (John 12:43) For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
How can I… be bothered with such things? May I ask… “HOW NOT?” Do you think that all that say they hold some Spiritual office, are really who they say they claim to be? The Gnostics’ during the early church period… falsely claimed to have special revelation or knowledge from God, that was not in the Scriptures. It is no different today, as those Falsely Claim some Spiritual Office, without any Biblical Authority!
*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) Such people are false apostles, dishonest workers who are masquerading as apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) And no wonder, since Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
(2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their doom will match their deeds!
*** (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.
Do you think... that there will be… “More –or– Less = Truth”… spoke about Today? That is an honest question; will you reply with an honest answer? Are the Christians who are the “Salt of the Earth”… doing their job to retard evil with Truth; or Not? Are you reading and studying your Bible more or Less…? Are you growing Spiritually; or have you just stagnated?
*** (1Peter 2:2-3) desire the sincere milk of the Word, as newborn babes, so that you may grow by it;
(1Pet 2:3) if truly you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun profane, vain babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
Many post ditties… on their social network site. I endeavor to Post Bible verses whenever and where ever possible. Many times I see such ‘Applications’ as… “God wants you to know!” I have read more heresy posted there; which goes against the Bible. I always try and post the Truth of the Word of God… to contradict that application. Most do not know their Bibles well enough to discern… “Truth from Error!”
*** (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.
*** (2Timothy 4:2-3-4) Preach the Word. Be ready to do this whether or not the time is convenient. Refute, warn, and encourage with the utmost patience when you teach.
(2Tim 4:3) For the time will come when people will not put up with healthy doctrine but with itching ears will surround themselves with false teachers who cater to their own needs.
(2Tim 4:4) They will refuse to listen to the truth and will turn to myths.
When you go… to the doctor or pharmacist, do you go to an ‘unlicensed’ practitioner? How about your grocery story, do you check the ‘expiration dates’ on the products you purchase? How about your purchases of disposable items; do you look for the best deals to spend your finances wisely? Do you know if there are Registered Sex Offenders in your neighborhood when you allow your children to go out and play? These are all rhetorical questions… to get you to Think. So why do you trust the Title of someone feeding you Spiritual food… without validating what they say from the Scriptures…?
*** (Acts 17:11) These people were more receptive than those in Thessalonica. They were very willing to receive the message, and every day they carefully examined the Scriptures to see if those things were so.
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of Jehovah was to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken and snared and taken.
*** (Isaiah 24:1-2) Behold, Jehovah empties the land and makes it bare, and distorts its face, and scatters its inhabitants.
(Isaiah 24:2) And as it is with the people, so it shall be with the priest; as with the servant, so with the master; as with the handmaid, so it is with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
Last but not least… we have been living in the “Last Days”… for over 2,000 years. Will there be More or Less… “Righteousness, Truth, Honesty and Love”… before the return of Christ…?
*** (Matthew 24:11-12) Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people,
(Matt 24:12) and because lawlessness will increase, the love of many people will grow cold.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
*** (Matthew 24:36-37) But of that day and hour no one knows, no, not the angels of Heaven, but only My Father.
(Matt 24:37) But as the days of Noah were, so shall be the coming of the Son of Man.
Simply take your Bibles… and check out what someone Claims or Posts. We are NOT to believe everything thing that someone says about Christ and the Word… without knowing what the Word of God… “Really Says”…! Satan as an angel of light, his ministers, false teachings and the like will abound more and more in the Last Days! It will NOT get better, but worse. How do you think those Phony Evangelists support their Super Life Styles, falsely claiming Abraham was rich too?
*** (1Thessalonians 5:21) Prove all things, hold fast to the good.
*** (Luke 16:30-31) And he said, No, father Abraham, but if one should go to them from the dead, they would repent.
(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.
How about it…? What will you do next…? Will you just accept any claim from anyone claiming to be a Pastor, Evangelist, Apostle or Bible Teacher… without ‘Checking The Scriptures’… “FIRST”…? Remember we all are Responsible for what we believe… be it Truth or Lies…!
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
"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?
