“Prophecy – 301” …Blog.
This if the ‘forth’… in this series. Perhaps a little review…? All Truth comes from the Word of God and… “All Lies”… come from Satan, the antithesis. Satan will always question what God has said and then get we humans to do the same. Satan’s simple and effective plan, which has worked well, throughout the ages, beginning in “Genesis 3:1”. How about you… What do you “Feel”… ‘sorry wrong word’ [to illustrate this point]… “Know”… about the Word of God. We know that God cannot Lie… “Numbers 23:19”… and that Satan is the Father of All Lies… “John 8:44”.
*** (Matthew 13:19) When = “Anyone” = hears the ‘Word’ of the kingdom = and = does ‘not’ understand it, = then the wicked one comes = and ‘catches away’ that = which was sown = in his ‘heart’. = This is the seed = sown by the wayside.
IF this is the ‘forth’… in the series, why is it not called, -401? Well it started out with, “Dreams & Visions – 101” That is because some say, that God speaks to them, outside of His Holy Word, in ‘dreams & visions’. Surely the God of the Bible, does ‘not’ violate, His Word, does He…? “Absolutely Not!” Do these two verses, say anything about the devil, snatching… ‘dreams & visions’… out of your heart…? No, they and the Bible speak about the “Word of God”… ‘Only!’
*** (Luke 8:11-12) And = the parable is this: = The seed is = the “Word of God”.
(Luke 8:12) Those by the roadside = are the ones who hear; = then the Devil comes = and = takes the ‘Word’ = out of their hearts, = lest = they should ‘believe’ = and = ‘be saved’.
Imagine how very important… the “Word of God” is, that even Satan, deems it important, to the Eternal Salvation of Gods’ creation, by the Word of God! Everyone, who ‘does not’ hold the Word of God, ‘Sacred & Holy’… is on Satan’s side… ‘Through & By’… “Rejecting the Word of God!” Have you ever heard someone use the term… ‘Fundy’ or a ‘Legalist?’ They were probably rejecting the posting, of the Word of God. A Biblical “Fundamentalist”, will hold to the ‘Absolute Authority’ of the Word of God. Did you know that Jesus was a Fundamentalist… to the Word?
*** (Matthew 4:4) But He [Jesus] = answered and said, = It is written, = "Man shall ‘not’ live = by bread alone, = but by ‘every’ = “Word” = that proceeds out of the mouth 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."
Many who say, that they… “Love Jesus”… surely do ‘not’ show the same Love, for His Word. Since when is Jesus, separated from His Word? “Absolutely Never!” He is the “Living Word!” This conflict, throughout the Old and New Testaments, has been and always will be ‘Against’… the “Absolute Authority” = of the Word of God! ‘Idolatry’ is simply nothing more, than “YOU”… telling God, that you, by some other means, know better than His Word! ‘Plain & Simple’, as Satan tried the same trick with Eve… “Has God ‘Really’ said… you shall not eat…?”
*** (Genesis 2:16-17) And Jehovah God = commanded the man, = saying, = You may freely eat = of every tree in the garden,
(Gen 2:17) but you = shall ‘not’ eat = of the tree of knowledge = of good and evil. = For in the day that you eat of it = you shall surely die.
*** (Romans 6:14) For = sin = shall not = have dominion over you: = for you are not under the law, = but under grace.
(Rom 6:15) What then? = Shall we = sin, = because we are not = under the law, = but under grace? = God forbid.
What do these… verses have to do with ‘Prophecy?’ Please allow me to ask you, ‘What’ the above verses mean? Do they mean that we are ‘Not’ under the Law of God? Do they mean that we ‘no longer’ have to obey the Law [Word] of God? Does it mean that ‘God’s Grace’, covers all our actions? If one is ‘Born Again’, does it mean that they are ‘free to do’, what they want, outside of the Law [Word] of God…? Why were these in the Corinthian Church… sick and dying…? Was it because they violated the Word of God…? Or, because of the swine flu? …Not!
*** (1Corinthians 11:30) That's why = so ‘many’ of you = are weak and sick = and a considerable number = are dying.
*** (Acts 5:10-11) She instantly = fell down at his feet = and died. = When the young men came in, = they found her dead. = So they carried her out = and buried her next to her husband.
(Acts 5:11) And = ‘great fear’ = seized the whole church = and = ‘everyone else’ = who heard about this.
In ‘both’ these instances… these ‘say’ they were they, “Under Grace”, and yet they died, for their “Lawlessness”. Many today ‘Wrongly’… “Grace Away Sin/Sins”… and then say that a person… “That ‘says’ they are a Christian”, is forgiven already for that ‘Sin!’. Is that is because they ‘do not’ know, what the Scriptures teaches? Are they in themselves are, ‘Prophesying’ … ‘saying’… “More, Less and Different”, from what the Scriptures say? Do you know, about the woman taken in adultery in “John 8:3-to-11”, where Jesus told her… “Go and Sin No More!” What do those verses really mean? Did Jesus excuse away her Sin…from the “Law of God”…?
*** (Luke 17:3) Take heed = to yourselves. = If = your brother = trespasses = against you, = “rebuke” him. = And ‘if’ = he ‘repents’, = forgive him.
*** (Ecclesiastes 8:11) Because = sentence [judgment] = against = an ‘evil’ work = is ‘not’ executed = speedily, = therefore = the heart of the sons of men = “is fully set” = in them = to do evil.
When something is ‘wrong’… “Most” will not say anything against it, “Unless it affects them, Directly!” Perhaps that is why most Churches have left off, teaching… “The Word of God”. They may casually read a verse here and there, but do they ‘systematically’ teach it, verse by verse, chapter by chapter, teaching and preaching… “God’s Truth?” Or has it gotten down to economics? As the Churches have expanded and spent monies, they should not have spent, so they have too, ‘compromised’ on God’s Word… as ‘not’ to drive away, the ‘Payee Collections’.
*** (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.
*** (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.
“False Prophecy”… is ‘anything less’, than the “Absolute Standard”, which God, has set in His Word, “The Bible”. When someone says ‘other than’… what the Bible says… they are ‘Prophesying. But they are doing so, with “Lies!” Excusing away… “Sin/Sins”… when they should have been dealt with. They simply set another standard… ‘Different & Against’… what the Word of God says. Say it isn’t so? When was the last time, you heard of this or experienced this, in any of the Churches you have ever attended? It is called, Biblical Church Discipline.
*** (Matthew 18:15) But = if your brother = shall trespass against you, = go and tell him = his fault = between you = and = ‘him alone’. = If = he hears you, = you have gained your brother.
(Matt 18:16) But if = he will ‘not’ hear you, = take = one or two ‘more’ = with you, = so that = in the mouth of two or three witnesses = every word = may be established.
(Matt 18:17) And ‘if’ = he shall neglect to hear them, = tell it to the church. = But ‘if’ = he neglects = to hear the church, = let him be to you = as a heathen and a tax-collector.
Your “Prophesying”… is simply… ‘HOW’… ‘YOU’… “Live your Life for Christ!” Is it in… ‘Obedience’… to His Word, the Bible… or is it to some ‘other’ standard? Remember what Christ Jesus said…? “But to live by… ‘Every’ Word of God”…! Remember you are a ‘witness’… of the Grace of God! It is simply, ‘What Authority’, do ‘you’ give to the… Holy Word of God, in your personal life. ‘Prophesying’… can either ‘Uphold God’s Word’… or in the opposite negative sense… ‘Vilify the Word of God’. Where you stand on, its Authority, is in reality, what you ‘really believe’, about God and His Word. How than can ‘ONE’ Say… “I Love Jesus”… and then, “Not Love & Know & Do… His Word… the Bible?”
*** (2Timothy 3:7) who are =always learning, = and = can ‘never’ come = to the full knowledge = of the Truth.
*** (Jude 1:3-4) My beloved, = while I take all pains = to write to you of our common = ‘faith’, = it is needful for me to write to you, = exhorting you to maintain = a ‘conflict’ = for the faith = which was once delivered = to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some = have obtained acceptance, = who from the beginning were registered beforehand = under this condemnation: = “wicked men”, = who “pervert” the grace of God = to impurity, = and = deny Him = Who is the only Lord God = and our Lord, = Jesus the Messiah.
*** (Matthew 5:23-24) Therefore if = ‘you’ = offer your gift on the altar, = and = there remember = that your brother = has “Anything” = ‘against you’,
(Matt 5:24) leave your gift there = before the altar and go. = “First” = be reconciled to your brother, = and = then come and offer your gift.
Have you ever… experienced ‘Matthew 5:23-24?’ Or have you, known about two people that have been at odds with each other and ‘both’ call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus? Are you yourself, at odds with another Christian? Have you ever… “Missed going to Church”… and gone and ‘got right’… with that other person…? Then perhaps your… ‘Prophesying’… or Living like a Christian… is Not Real? What… “You call”… ‘Loving Jesus’… “Is Not Right”… when you are at odds, with your Brother or Sister in Christ and with the Holy Word of God!
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being = ‘doers’ = of the Word, = and = not merely hearers = who continually deceive themselves.
*** (John 12:48-49) He who rejects = Me [Jesus] =and = does ‘not’ receive = My Words = has ‘one’ = who judges him; = the “Word” = that I have spoken, = the same = shall judge him = in the last day.
(John 12:49) For I [Jesus] = have ‘not’ spoken = of Myself, = but the Father [God] = Who sent Me = gave Me = a command, = what I should say, = and what = I should speak.
Now to you that say… “God speaks to ‘me’, outside of His Word”…! How can that really be? If you hear voices, or have dreams and visions… outside of God’s Word, the Bible = they are not from God! The test of God’s Truth, is always ‘God’s Word’… “Nothing More, Nothing Less!” Did Jesus lie when He spoke those above verses? Does the Holy Spirit speak different than the Word of God? Does God the Father, speak outside of His Word? In all cases… “Absolutely Not!” His standard is the same for… “All mankind”… as He is ‘no’ respecter of persons.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And = Jehovah = appeared again in Shiloh. = For Jehovah = revealed Himself = to Samuel = in Shiloh = ‘by’ = the Word of Jehovah.
*** (Zechariah 8:18) And = the Word of Jehovah of Hosts = came to me, saying,
*** (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.
*** (Luke 24:44) And He [Jesus] = said to them, = These are the words which I spoke to you = while I was still with you, = that all things = must be fulfilled = which were written = in the Law of Moses = and in the Prophets = and in the Psalms = about Me.
*** (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]
