“FB = ‘message from God’ [application] – 101”… Blog.
“God wants you to know”…! This application has more… “Heresy”… than I can stand. Each time I see it on FB, it makes my blood… ‘Boil!’ Most post it; without ever checking out what it is really saying! The first thing that jumped out to me… is that they “NEVER” use the Bible. God, the God of the Bible, uses His Holy Word… to speak to ‘His Real Children’. Only “His Word”… is His Truth… and “NOT”… those ‘ditty’s’ posted there!
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. = Your Word = is Truth.
*** (Matthew 24:35) The heaven and the earth shall pass away, = but = My Words = shall not pass away.
*** (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.
About now ‘One’ will see… that those that ‘make substitutions’… for the Holy Word of God, are “NOT of God!” Religious people will always have some ‘cloak of religion’… but will ‘never’ take the Word of God; as their “ONLY”… Point of Reference! It was so in the times of Christ Jesus as it was in the times of Moses [Exodus 20:19-20]. A systematic… ‘read & study… of the Old Testament, bears this out. What is even more dangerous today; is that ‘in’ most Churches… the pastors have been systematically moving their people… away from the “Holy Word of God”.
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, = It is written, = That man shall not live by bread alone, = but by ‘every’ Word of God.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come, = says the Lord GOD, = that I will send a famine in the land, = not a famine of bread, = nor a thirst for water, = but of hearing = the Words of the LORD:
*** (Mark 7:6-7) But He [Jesus] answered and said to them, = Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, = as it is written, = "This people honors Me with their lips, = but their heart is far from Me.
(Mark 7:7) However, = they worship Me = in vain, = teaching for doctrines = the commandments [sayings] of men."
Have you been shopping ‘Lately’…? Of course we all have and we are ‘always’ looking for the best value. “Never” do I purchase meat in the grocery that is “NOT”… in a ‘see-thru’ container. The fresh vegetables must meet certain standards too. Surely you would ‘NOT’ buy… rotten fruit! If you use such ‘a criteria’ for your human food… ‘should you not = do the same’… for your… “Spiritual Food”…?
*** (1Corinthians 2:10-to-16) But God = has revealed them to us = by His Spirit; = for the Spirit = searches all things, = yea, the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) For who among men = knows the things of a man = except the spirit of man within him? = So also = no one knows the things of God = except the Spirit of God.
(1Cor 2:12) But we have not received = the spirit of the world, = but the 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.
(1Cor 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.
(1Cor 2:15) But he who is spiritual = judges all things, = yet he himself is judged by no one.
(1Cor 2:16) For who has known the mind of the Lord, = that he may instruct Him? = But we have the mind of Christ.
From these Bible Verses… we simply see that there are Two Kinds of ‘words’. Those from the Holy Spirit of God; to God’s Real children; who have His Holy Spirit [Romans 8:9]. Then there are the words of man’s wisdom; that are ‘not’ founded in God’s Words. They only further ‘confuse’ the issue of what God has already said… in His Holy Word! Which… ‘ONE’… do you care to know…? You take in, what feeds your soul. Remember if it is “Not”… God’s Word… then it is “Junk Food”… that will make you ‘Spiritually’… “Fat & Lazy!”
*** (Luke 24:25-26-27) And He [Jesus] said to them, = O fools and slow of heart to believe = all things that the prophets spoke!
(Luke 24:26) Was it not necessary for = the Christ [Messiah] = to suffer these things = and to enter into His glory?
(Luke 24:27) And beginning at Moses = and all the Prophets, = He [Jesus] expounded to them = in all the Scriptures = the things concerning Himself.
*** (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.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) and that from a child = you have known = the Holy Scriptures, = which are able to make you = wise to salvation = through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed, = and is profitable for doctrine, = for reproof, = for correction, = for instruction in righteousness,
(2Tim 3:17) that the man of God may be perfected, = thoroughly furnished = to every good work.
*** (2Peter 1:19-20-21) We also have a more sure Word of prophecy, = to which = you do well = to take heed, = as to a light that shines in a dark place, = until the day dawns = and the Daystar arises in your hearts,
(2Pet 1:20) knowing this first, = that no prophecy of the Scripture = came into being = of its own private interpretation.
(2Pet 1:21) For prophecy = was not borne at any time = by the will of man, = but holy men of God spoke being borne along by the Holy Spirit.
About now… “One” is beginning to realize, that The Holy Word of God… is the “ONLY Ground of TRUTH”… upon which the True Child of God… has to rely on. The Bible… “Never”… preaches ‘tolerance’… of Others ‘Pseudo’ [Fake] Truths! It strictly “Condemns Them!” Replete throughout the Holy Word of God… there are warnings about “False Teachers & Preachers”… and their substitutions that… “Go Against”… God’s Holy Word! Say it isn’t So…?
*** (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.
*** (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.
*** (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.
One last admonition… from the Holy Word of God! Every song is a sermon. Yes, as entertainment has replace the ‘Preaching & Teaching’… in most Churches, this is a warning too. During an hour service… how much actual Study do you get from the Holy Word of God? Do you take your Bible and take notes about the Sermon? IF not… “Why Not”…? In a 2006 study of over 10,000 = Pastors, Bible School & Seminary Teachers… “LESS”… than ‘One Third’… held to the complete authority of the Holy Word of God.
*** (Isaiah 24:2) And as it is with the people, = so it shall be with the priest; [Pastor] = 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. [Total Duplicity]
*** (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.
*** (1Thessalonians 5:21-to-24) Prove all things, = hold fast to the good.
(1Thes 5:22) Abstain from every appearance of evil.
(1Thes 5:23) And may the God of peace = Himself sanctify you, = and may your whole spirit = and soul = and body = be preserved blamelessly = at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(1Thes 5:24) Faithful is He = Who called you, = Who also = will do it.
*** (John 16:13-14-15) However, when He, = the Spirit of Truth, = has come, = He will guide you into all Truth. = For He shall not speak of Himself, = but whatever He hears, = He shall speak. = And He will announce to you things to come.
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me [Jesus], = for He will receive of Mine = and will announce it = to you.
(John 16:15) All things = that the Father has = are Mine. = Therefore I [Jesus] = said that He [The Holy Spirit] = will take of Mine = and will announce it = to you.
Make ‘Your’ Choice… “TODAY!” Stop… hearing, reading and taking into your mind… those things that Go Against… what God has said in His Holy Word…! Simply change your point of reference… back to the Holy Word of God… Nothing More… Nothing Less…!
*** (2Corinthians 10:3-to-9) Of course, = we are living in the flesh, = but we do not fight = in a fleshly way.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons = of our warfare = are not those of the flesh. = Instead, = they have the power of God = to demolish fortresses. = We tear down arguments
(2Cor 10:5) And every proud obstacle = that is raised = against the knowledge of God, = taking every thought captive = in order to = obey Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready to punish every act of disobedience [1John 1:5-to-10] = when your obedience is complete. [Proverbs 28:13]
*** (2Corintians 6:14-to-18) Do not be = unequally yoked together with unbelievers; = for what fellowship = does righteousness have = with lawlessness? = And what partnership = does light have = with darkness?
(2Cor 6:15) And what agreement = does Christ have with Belial? = Or what part = does a believer have = with an unbeliever?
(2Cor 6:16) And what agreement = does a temple of God have = with idols? = For you are the temple of the living God, = as God has said, = "I will dwell in them and walk among them; = and I will be their God, = and they shall be My people."
(2Cor 6:17) Therefore = come out from among them = and be separated, = says the Lord, = and do not touch = the unclean thing. = And I will receive you
(2Cor 6:18) and = I will be a Father to you, = and you shall be = My sons and daughters, = says the Lord Almighty.
Thanks for your EAR…!
In Christ, Roger
