“Gnostics & the NT Born Again – 101” …Blog.

“Gnostics & the NT Born Again – 101” …Blog.

*** (2Timothy 2:15-to-18) Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the word of truth with precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,
(2Tim 2:17) and what they say will spread everywhere like gangrene. Hymenaeus and Philetus are like that.
(2Tim 2:18) They have ‘abandoned’ the Truth: –> by [Falsely] ‘Claiming’ that the resurrection has ‘already’ taken place: –> and so they ‘Destroy’ the faith of others.

*** (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.

*** (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 3:5-6-7) They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people.
(2Ti 3:6) For some of these men [Trolls], go into homes and ‘deceive’ foolish women who are burdened with sins and swayed by all kinds of desires.
(2Ti 3:7) These WOMEN are always studying -> but are “NEVER” able to arrive at a full knowledge of the Truth.

*** (Mark 7:6-7-8) He [Jesus] told them, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites. As it is written, 'These people honor Me [God] with their lips: –> but their hearts are far from Me [God].
(Mark 7:7) Their worship of Me [God] is empty: –> Because they teach human rules as doctrines.'
(Mark 7:8) You ‘abandon’ the commandment of God: –> and hold to ‘human’ tradition."

“Why does GOD allow: ‘False Teachers’? – 101” …Blog
There are several ‘identifiable’ groups… in Christianity. First, there are those who are Truly Born Again, by the Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit of GOD… testifies to their spirit… that they are… truly the children of God [Romans 8:15-16-17]. They “Believe” the Holy Word of God… and choose to us it as their: “Only Point of Reference!” They know that Christ Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God… is the “Living Word!” The indwelling Holy Spirit… makes this known to them! The Love Him, “Christ Jesus”… as much as they Love: “His Holy Word!” When there arise doubts, they ‘Pray & Seek’… His Truth… from His Holy Word! They challenge all teaching… comparing it to what “Christ Jesus” said in His Holy Word!
*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous will live by Faith."

“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “John 3:5-to-8 & 1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” ‘Some’ purposely missed.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD: Sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!

*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].

*** (Hebrews 13:8) Jesus Christ; the same: yesterday: and today: and forever.

*** (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. [Or NOT!]

*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone transgressing and Not abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does Not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has Both the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If ANYONE comes to you and does Not bring this doctrine; Do NOT receive him into your house; Nor speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is Partaker of his “EVIL” deeds.

“The ‘Doctrine’ of Christ – 101”…Blog.
Another group, are the “Gnostics”…! They, “Falsely Claim” to be Christian! They may discard some the Scriptures and substitute: “Other Writings”! These they ‘Falsely Claim’ a… “Supposedly More Perfect: KNOWLEDGE”… than that; revealed in the “Holy Word of God & by His Holy Spirit! Today, “MANY” who call themselves Christian… are ‘NOT’ even “Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of GOD! One sure test… is that they “Falsely Believe”… that somehow they can “Lose their Salvation!” This is because they have a… “Works ‘Keeping’ Salvation”… and NOT one that is due to ONLY: the Love, Mercy & Grace of Almighty God.

*** (1Jn 2:19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they were of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out so that it might be revealed that they were ‘Not’ all of us.

“Salvation ‘Confusion?’ – 101” …Blog.

Please allow me to ask you a “Question”…? How does a ‘Finite Human Being’… earn their “Eternal Salvation”… from an “Infinite God”…? He or She… “Can Not!” Mankind is “Sinful” by nature… born in ‘Sin & Trespasses’… passed on to the Human Race… by the ‘Rebellion & Disobedience’… of Adam & Eve…! We are born “Sinful”… and that is why Christ Jesus came… to Redeem the Lost Human Race! How then can a sinful person… earn salvation… from a Holy Eternal God…? “IF: It cannot be -> EARNED”... THEN: “It cannot be LOST -> EITHER”...! One “Cannot earn salvation”… it is the “Gift of God”… by His Grace, Love & Mercy…! What it gets down to is… “Who do ‘You’ Believe”…? God and His Holy Word… or what some “Church or Denomination or Group”… “Teaches”…?

“Where do Christians go ‘Wrong?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Galatians 4:16) So then did I become your enemy; speaking to you the “Truth?”

*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.

*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the Truth; but because you know it; and know that -> ‘No Lie’ is of -> the Truth.

*** (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 have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
Often they say, that they “Believe in Grace”…! And then do ‘Not’ believe… ONLY: His Holy Word! Furthermore, they know “ONLY” what their “Church or Denomination or Group”… “Preaches & Teaches!” They often ‘Discard’ Some: of the Bible and its Teaching [Doctrine], especially those about the… “Eternal Security of the Believer!” [Romans 8:9] And at the same time… they use the Bible and some of its verses. If ‘You’ will read the book of Galatians; ‘You’ will see how the Holy Spirit used Paul… to counteract such Lies! When ONE is wrong about the Holy Spirit… they do ‘Not’ understand… “Salvation!”

*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.

*** (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.” [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]

“Not by Bread ‘Alone’ – 101” …Blog.

Today the “Gnostics” teach… “The Secret Teachings of Jesus; The Tarot and Kabbalah in Christianity; Evolution and Devolution; The Four Pathways to Liberation; The Ego, the Essence, and the Personality; Esoteric Psychology; Mystical Death; Sacrifice and Love; The Path of the Bodhisattva; Alchemy and Transmutation; Karma, the Lion-faced Power; The Twelve Aeons; The Three Forces; The Trees of Eden; The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus; The Divine Mother; Lucifer; The Twelve Apostles and the Awakening of the Consciousness; and much more!”

Did “Christ JESUS”… Say… “Some”… “Few”… or… “MANY”…?

He: Christ Jesus, said… “MANY”…!

*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!

False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]
*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘Contend Earnestly’ for the [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

*** (Jeremiah 9:23-24) So says the LORD Jehovah; Do not let the wise glory in his wisdom, nor let the mighty glory in his might; do not let the rich glory in his riches;
(Jer 9:24) but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me [God], that I am the LORD Jehovah, doing kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth; for in these I delight, says the LORD Jehovah.

*** (Micah 6:8) He [God] has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?

*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, 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 Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
