Part Two – Do Not Be Deceived – Do Not Follow Men
Part Two – Do Not Be Deceived – Do not Follow Men
This series is about the IMPORTANCE of the SCRIPTURES that say “DO NOT BE DECEIVED” and “TEST ALL THINGS TO SEE IF THEY BE OF GOD.” Understanding this is the key to eternal life.
It will go through the bible correctly explaining things that are of great importance that apply to the disciples of Christ in this age and must be understood correctly if we desire to become a disciple of Christ and thus a son of God and have entry to the eternal kingdom of God. It will also as certain false doctrines appear in the current teachings of men, stop and explain why they are doctrines of men and not of Christ and as such MUST BE REJECTED. The time is short and only truth can bring us to salvation, to reclaim our lost heritage, eternal life in the kingdom of God. The purpose of these studies is to insure the final salvation of all who care enough about it to pursue it. No other purpose. I do not want you to follow me or any other man, Follow Jesus, He is the ONLY man that can write your name in His book of Life, the book God will use to either allow you entry to His eternal kingdom or to send you into the lake of fire for your destruction.
Gal 3:26-27 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ
This is one of the side trails about false doctrines of man currently being taught as truth. I am sure this will upset some of the followers of men and the men they follow but as always I must warn you. Do not believe ANYTHING I OR ANY OTHER MAN try to teach you unless and until it is confirmed by the Holy Spirit of God and no other spirit, there are many other spirits wanting you to follow them. Only the Holy Spirit of God is sent to us by God through Christ to guide us to ALL TRUTH. I do not say this of my own accord, the scriptures make it clear that this is a requirement for ALL who would follow Christ, the Lord of this age. If you do not test these things with the understanding that if they are proved true to you by the Holy Spirit of God, you will accept them, then you will have NO EXCUSE when you reach the end and find YOUR NAME is not found in the Book. Any man (male of female) that quotes or uses articles of other men to prove his teaching points instead of using SCRIPTURE will lead you astray and can not be trusted, Trust NO MAN, trust ONLY the scriptures (not your bible) and the Holy Spirit of God, There IS NO OTHER SOURCE OF ALL TRUTH.
James 1:16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.
John 16:13-15 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
2 Tim 3:12-14 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them
1 Thess 5:19-22 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
You must understand there must be NO ASSUMPTIONS in order to present truth. Most but not all false doctrines assume something that is not said in scripture. I will agree that the word of God is able to change a person if correctly understood but the big problem is that you cannot trust any modern bible and virtually all bibles after the deadly horrible kjv contain many of the errors that king james paid for in his effort to discredit (yes that is why the kjv was bought and paid for) the Geneva Bible (one of the better ones). The translators have corrupted their bibles with their personal beliefs and many of those beliefs are contrary to the real word of God, the scriptures. Over the last 1000 years men have corrupted the bibles to feed people into their “churches” instead of lead them to Christ. Then they are made disciples of their false “churches” instead of disciples of the Christ. Of course this FURTHER DIVIDES THE PEOPLE SEEKING GOD. Just the opposite of what Jesus does. The problem with this is that only true disciples of Christ can become sons of God and only sons of God will enter God's eternal Kingdom. Because the people are taught by these churchmen that they must follow them, (God says not to follow men and He sent His Holy Spirit to show us truth) and that truth is what will cause men to not follow men, but since their people do not properly understand the importance of the scriptural admonitions, do not be deceived and test all things to see if the be of God, they believe the doctrines of men being fed to them and miss out completely on the ability to become sons of God and enter the eternal kingdom of God. Instead they become disciples of the devisive church system of men and not the true church of Jesus Christ, his disciples, the sons of God. Because of this, being led through the wide gate and down the wide easy path they forfeit their opportunity to become sons of God. DO NOT BE DECEIVED MY BELOVED BRETHREN, DO NOT FOLLOW THEM . STOP, LEARN TRUTH, AND Find THAT NARROW GATE AND WALK ON THAT NARROW DIFFICULT PATH that few will find , it is the only way to the eternal kingdom of God.
Then we see men teaching from the law and age of Moses, but those things do not and cannot be used in this age. They even try to convince us to believe that since they use the Hebrew language that they are more informed or as most that do this, are the more elite. Elitist and scripturally WRONG, these false teachers are teaching things of the age of the Israelites, judges and prophets and priests standing in God's stead and were only given to the Iraelites for their age, were ended at the crucifiction of Christ and cannot be used in this age. This age only Christ can stand in the stead of God because only He has been delegated ALL authority on heaven and earth, by God for this age. No other man has been given or is allowed ANY rulership authority by God (the owner of this authority)in this age.
Then there is the misunderstanding of spirit and heart. The heart of man is the controlling place of the carnal man. Scripture is clear that it is deceitful and desperately wicked and no man can know it.
Contrary to what some teach there is NO SCRIPTURE saying we get a new heart when born again. In fact the opposite is found in scripture it says we must crucify our flesh (the heart controls the flesh unless we override it with our Spirit. Change of heart comes from the Spirit not from the heart, when we learn to walk in the Spirit then we can control the heart, no other way. You DO NOT GET A NEW HEART, you get THE TOOLS TO CONTROL and override the desires of the evil heart. When you are baptized in water your HEART IS CIRCUMSIZED thereby allowing it to receive the things of God which are contrary to the ways of man.
Jer 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
Col 2:11-13 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
Gal 5:24-26 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
I love You an I want you as do God and Christ to understand scripture correctly so you can inherit your rightful heritage. The earth, the Kingdom of God and eternity on the new earth with God, Our older brother Jesus and all of our other brethren, the sons of God through Christ. NO ONE ELSE will be allowed to enter the this eternal kingdom. I pray you will join us there.
