In the Name of Jesus

apostacey121e33c6-2555-4c33-9c85-e415a0be4fbb-large

Did you ever wonder why the Bible tells us that we have authority in the name of Jesus and yet scriptures plainly tell us that one can believe in another Jesus? That is, a person can believe in a Jesus which is one of their own imagination, understanding, or organized religion and he is not the Jesus of the Bible.

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many [again note that Christ said “MANY”] will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:21-23.

First of all let us examine the premise; one can believe in another Jesus who is not the Jesus of the Bible.

  • Paul says, “For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.” 2 Corinthians 11:4
  • Paul warns “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-9

So as you can see from scriptures, it is very possible to be converted to a false gospel and believe in a false Jesus too.  Now, check out these scriptures.

    • For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”  Will come in my name (on behalf of)And shall deceive many- to cause (someone) to believe something that is not true; in order to gain a personal advantage.
    •  
    • Saying, “I am the Christ.” Or in other words I am anointed of God.
    • Many (an innumerable amount)
    • Matthew 24:5-8
  • On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ Matthew 7:22Many will say to be– (an innumerable amount)We prophesied in your name-spoke in his behalf, saying God told them thus
  • Works in your name– miracles, virtuous deeds, moral power, force
  • Lord, Lord– these claim to know him. As they address him as master.
  • On that dayjudgment day

Now to my point; In order to use someone’s name legitimately, or perform legal action in the name of another, act on their behalf, proxy: one must be authorized to use that name.  If you will notice, Jesus said to those using his name and doing works in his name and being rejected for it at judgment day, Jesus said, I NEVER KNEW YOU.  He did not say, “I once knew you, but I do not know you now, he said NEVER, and never means never.   ( at no time in the past or future; on no occasion; not ever)

However, these people going about doing works in Jesus name thought that they knew him! They called him Lord! They even thought that they were doing miracles in his name. But were they really? I have noticed that many doing so called miracles hardly ever get doctor verification or witnesses for their so called miracles. Seriously! Why not?

Now I am not saying that God does not perform miracles, but what I am saying is that many deceivers also claim they are doing miracles in Jesus name. So, miracles are not a sign of a true Christian with authority to use the name of Jesus by proxy (agent, deputy, emissary, representative)

This is why the Bible says to test the spirits. And prove ALL things. There are false anointed one out their claiming to know Jesus, when in fact, they believe in another Jesus and preach another gospel. (One made up in the minds of men and not based on scriptures.  )

Always check out what the person is preaching, even if they make you think someone is getting a miracle or even if there is a bonafide miracle because yes, Satan can perform miracles, scriptures attest to this. For example, New age healing and many other kinds of mumbo jumbo have actually healed people, such as hypnosis, mind control, new age spirit healing ect.

Even preachers could be doing healings and miracles by demons and have a false anointing (another spirit)

The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,” 2Thess. 2:9

for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.” Revelation 16:14

“If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’”  Deut. 3:1-12

“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24

In order to use the name of Jesus legitimately we must be born again, called by him, and be in obedience to scriptures. Many of these false anointed ones preach things contrary to scriptures. They also are very good at making up a lot of subjective stuff too. Make sure all preaching you receive can be backed up with scriptures comparing scriptures. Sometimes these sneaky false deceivers will speak great big swelling words as scriptures tell us. In other words they are silver tongued.

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2Corinthians 11:13 -15

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. John 3:1-15

Scriptures give us safe guards against false prophets, teacher, apostles, pastors, evangelists.

Here are some things to watch for.

  •   Bad fruit- sexual sins, lying, cheating, faking, stealing
  • False teachings- (non scriptural, adding to or taking away from the Bible or misconstruing in order to pervert or change)
  • Greedy for gain- always asking for money, fleece the sheep in order to live high on the hog
  • Braggarts-always boasting about themselves as some great one, vain, self exaggerated.
  • Prophesying for money- you have to pay exorberent amount of money to hear them speak.
  • They give false words that do not come to pass.
  • They will tell you that there is another way to come to salvation, that Jesus is not enough or that he is not really God.
  • They do not like the grace of Christ and prefer the works of the law.
  • They scatter the sheep by abuse of power
  • They are sensual, of this world, love the world, and preach the exploits of this world.
  • They preach flattering words that the people want to hear but never subjects that deal with sin.
  • They pervert the grace of God into sensuality. In other words they say that you can live a lifestyle of sin and be saved. This is not true! If you are really saved then you will live separated from the world and its evil.

Woe to them! For they walked in the way of Cain and abandoned themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error and perished in Korah’s rebellion. Jude 11

For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve. Romans 6:18

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 7:21

But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him. Deut. 18:20-22

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:16

An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes? Jer. 5: 30,31

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. Gal. 1:6-9

“I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.” Jer.23:21

And her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord has not spoken. Exk.22:28

Its heads give judgment for a bribe; its priests teach for a price; its prophets practice divination for money; yet they lean on the Lord and say, “Is not the Lord in the midst of us? No disaster shall come upon us.” Micah 3:11

Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones. But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.” But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively. Woe to them! For they walked in the way of Cain and abandoned themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error and perished in Korah’s rebellion. These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; Jude 8: 8-16

Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” declares the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: “You have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil deeds, declares the Lord. Then I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, declares the Lord. “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. Jer. 23:1-40

And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 2 Peter 2:3

They have seen false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘Declares the Lord,’ when the Lord has not sent them, and yet they expect him to fulfill their word. Ezek.13:6

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; .2 Peter 2:1-22

And the Lord said to me: “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds. Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name although I did not send them, and who say, ‘Sword and famine shall not come upon this land’: By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword, with none to bury them—them, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. For I will pour out their evil upon them. Jeremiah 14: 14-16

For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. 2 Peter 2: 18,19

For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. Jude 1:4

In conclusion, God gives authority in his name (JESUS) to his sheep that are known by him.

What this means is, that when a Christian represents Jesus Christ in proxy, then the authority they are given is onoma (GREEK) which means to come in his character and likeness.

The Bible does not give license to use Jesus name as a magic formula for whatever we want, but rather as a representative of Jesus, you have authority to be like him in character so that you represent him to the world. Christian means Christ like.

In Hebrew culture, a name represents the person, so to put the name of Jesus to something we must make sure that we take his name as sacred, according to his character described in the Bible and not in vain. Taking Jesus name in vain means to use the name of Jesus without producing the results of his character and word. Christians have authority in the name of Jesus to represent him to the world, so if one is misrepresenting him in this world they will be judged for that.

On Judgment day we will give account for how we lived as a representative of Jesus Christ in this world and not based on how many miracles were performed in our ministry. Satan is a very crafty liar and deceiver. Many calling themselves anointed of God are nothing more than deceivers who represent their father the devil. Do not follow after them or their judgment will be our judgment. Be wise and check out everything you hear and see in these last days, for many will come in Jesus name claiming to know him and be his representative but they are not. You will know them by their fruit.

FALSE DOCTRINE ALERT!

watch10403230_707368482635615_702999837629369675_n

“Conform ourselves” ? The Bible says we are conformed to the image of Christ by the Holy Spirit and the word of God (Bible). Catholic doctrine is work based and a false gospel.

2 Corinthians 3:18 says that “we are being transformed into [Christ’s] likeness” and Romans 8:29 states that God “predestined [all believers] to be conformed to the likeness of his Son.”

Romans 8:29 – For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Galatians 3:27 – For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

2 Corinthians 3:18And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Psalm 51:10-12
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.

John 8:31
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,

Philippians 1:6
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

“Star of David” is an Occult Sign

The so called “star of David” is an occult sign and not a sign of the Jewish people. That star is really the star of Solomon who was involved with idolatry. There is no Biblical or Jewish evidence that traces this ancient occult symbol with king David. There is evidence that the star was used by king Solomon, after he turned to pagan gods and the occult. Jewish Kabbalists who are occultists use the star and they are responsible for its institution as the flag of Israel. That star is not in the bible as a Jewish symbol. It represents anti Christ who will set up his throne in the new temple built by the Jews which is a slap in the face to Jesus the true Messiah and the true sacrifice for sins.

Christians who support this star are supporting anti christ.

The False Doctrine of Dominionism

apostacey529233_472099279521404_1598276070_n

The False Doctrine of Dominionism

1. The Gospel of Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and His shed blood on the cross. The emphasis is placed upon repentance and conversion of individual souls. The Kingdom of God in this age is spiritual and grows through efforts of evangelism based on teaching the Bible. It is “not of this world” (John 18:36), but a spiritual rule in the hearts of men (Luke 17:20-21). Furthermore, the Kingdom of God is only finally realized upon Christ’s second return to Earth, whereby He Himself establishes His literal and physical reign.

2. The Scripture speaks of a type of separation between Church and State that forbids unholy coalitions. When a financial Church-State question was posed by the chief priests and scribes to the Lord Jesus Christ, He answered, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar’s, and unto God the things that be God’s” (Luke 20:25) While believers have a responsibility to obey the laws and rulers of the land (Romans 13), they are also required to “obey God rather than man” (Acts 5:29), especially when the truth of the Gospel message is at stake.

3. The doctrines of Restoration are rooted in the earth. Their basis is the (false) teaching that man must take dominion of this earth and change it for the better before Jesus can come. However, This system requires obedience to Law. If any system of religion is going to be introduced worldwide, amongst many who offer only a token submission to it, obviously that religion must be strongly enforced and governed by rules and regulations. In fact, the religion proposed by Restoration (and other) Christian movements for world transformation today is one closely modeled on the Old Testament Law.

4. In order to provide biblical proof of their role as earth saviors and law-givers, and in order to support their claim to be the Kingdom of God on earth, Restoration leaders have to pirate the Old Testament promises of God to the nation of Israel and make them apply to the Church.

5.They have gone on record as saying that Israel has no further place in God’s future plan for blessing the nations, nor will the ‘kingdom’ promises of the OT come to pass specifically for Israel, but only by and through the Church. The Jews rejected their Messiah, they say, and so forfeited their inheritance. But God, who can never lie nor break His Word, has promised specific material blessings of land, prosperity, nationhood, peace and victory to the literal nation of Israel in the future. These promises have never been fulfilled and can only be fulfilled in the context of a re-gathering and spiritual resurrection of Jews in the literal land of Israel. [Jer 31:35-37]

6.
The emphasis on earthly triumph for the Church and long years of victorious rule to precede the Lord’s Coming removes the need to ‘watch and pray’ and be ready for that Day. Many sensitive Christians are aware that the signs leading up to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus are being fulfilled in this generation, and that – in fact – the Coming may be very soon indeed. If so, we ought to be on our guard against laxity and deception, as Jesus warned. But Restoration doctrine promises ultimate triumph for the Church instead of the tribulation of the endtimes prophesied in the Word, and so encourages a careless attitude.

7. Restoration teaching places the binding of evil, and the ‘dominion’ of the righteous, at the FIRST coming of the Lord, it radically adjusts our understanding of the book of Revelation and the other prophecies of the End. According to this scheme, the Tribulation, Antichrist, Apostasy and so forth are placed historically in the PAST, or else are made out to be symbolic interpretations of ordinary antagonism against the victorious Church. The Restoration understanding of prophecy is largely POST-millennial. That is, it places the Return of Christ AFTER the reign of righteousness and peace. Therefore, what is now expected is not tribulation but triumph. This is very dangerous, especially as the scripture warns that, before Jesus returns, a world leader claiming to be Messiah will arise. [2 Thess 2:3,4] It may be that Restoration Christians, unaware of the true prophetic calendar, will accept this man as Christ.

8. Dominionism denies the sovereignty of the Godhead.
Restoration doctrine claims that Jesus CANNOT return until all His enemies have been put under the feet of the Church, (including death, presumably). His coming is not at the appointed time ordained by God, as scripture says [Acts 1:7] but must wait on the preparations made for Him by the Church, for the world must be evangelised and saved and the Bride must be totally united and without spot or wrinkle when He comes. However, the Bible states that very few will be ready when Jesus comes, and that the purification of the Bride is a work of the Holy Spirit, not Christian leaders. [Luke 18:8/Matt 7:14]

9. In order to establish world dominion, Restoration teaching must be unvaried and universal, and this cannot be done without the obedience of all its followers. Thus, a system of leadership [discipleship] must be introduced to ensure every Christian is under authority and unable to err from the teaching. This excludes from the ‘one world kingdom’ all those who disagree with Restoration teaching. In effect, it disinherits all other Christians from the Body of Christ. Indeed, some restoration fellowships teach that their Church is the only valid one, that the door to salvation is through the Church, [not Jesus Christ the Saviour!] and that everyone outside of the system is outside of the Kingdom of God.

10. It replaces Jesus with the Church.
In an effort to strengthen the claims of the Church on earth, as a Kingdom and Authority to be obeyed, Restoration doctrine has come close to replacing Lord Jesus with His Body. The properties, abilities and authority of Jesus are made over to the visible Body on earth and His functions as Head and Government, Shepherd and King are taken over by Church elders (on His behalf, they say!). Then, it becomes the responsibility OF THE CHURCH to destroy the wicked and establish the Kingdom on earth. This leads to human arrogance and rivalry, and replaces obedience to God with submission to the Church.

11. It is quite simply an idolatrous system very similar to Catholicism, with leadership that cant be questioned, control, and undermining of scriptures. A man made end time false doctrine that takes the focus from Jesus and the cross to the 5 fold ministry and church and member elitism.

12. The align themselves with Rome and are members of the ecumenical groups.

Beware of Word Faith Deception

apimagesCA0Y48PY
Word of Faith teachers profess that Christians have a “right” to this world’s goods if they ask God and have enough faith.

According to WOF teachers, Words have power and that is why it is often called “name it and claim it.” WOF preachers take a verse such as Matthew 11:24 out of context. “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. “ to support their doctrine.

The Bible, however, teaches that God’s will determines the answer to our prayers, not man’s will.

‘And this is the boldness which we have toward Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us. And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of Him.’—I John 5:14, 15.

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. “Romans 8:26-27

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. “Romans 12:2

“ Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is].” Ephesians 5:17

“Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye [ought] to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.” James 4:13,15
WOF also teaches that God wants to bless Christians with money, big homes and new cars, ect. Using verses as Malachi 3:10 out of context.

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

That is why WOF is called the “prosperity gospel” or “health and wealth gospel.”

However the Bible tells us that seeking after money in this life is sin.

“He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity. When goods increase, they increase who eat them, and what advantage has their owner but to see them with his eyes? Sweet is the sleep of a laborer, whether he eats little or much, but the full stomach of the rich will not let him sleep.” Ecclesiastes 5:10-12

“Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” 1 Timothy 6:9-11:

“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Matthew 6:24

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him”. 1John 2:15

Wealth is not a sign of favor from God. Many drug dealers, corrupt businessmen, and pornographers are wealthy and millions of hardworking, honest Christians are poor.

“Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? “ James 2:5

WOF also teach that people are created in the image of God and therefore are “little gods.” They imply that Christians are able to control a “faith force” and have the power to bring their desires into being. They take John 10:34 out of context Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods ?”

This claim is idolatry because Jesus was quoting Psalm 82, which referred to judges as “gods.”

Jesus was stating that he was above all judges being the Son of God, deity.

True Christians are indwelt by the Holy Spirit but are not little gods. God is the creator and humans are his creations. Christians are to be in submission to God’s will and his Lordship, living their lives to please him alone.

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children. “ Ephesians 5:1-33

“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. “John 15:14

“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. “ Luke 4:8

The “Love ” Gospel Does Not Love Truth

evang941211_516879661692582_248779128_n

The” Love” Gospel Does Not Love Truth

The “Love Gospel” is another gospel but it is not the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The “Love Gospel” overlooks sound Biblical doctrine in order to accept those of other faiths as Christians.

The major emphasis is on love and unity. The false “Love” Gospel is the bases of Ecumenism and is leading towards a one world religion in these last days.

In order to accomplish this unity, the Bible is compromised, causing doctrines of demons to come into the Church, or a least what is passing off today in some circles as Christianity. Those who follow This “Love Gospel” cry the loudest, “Don’t judge” and “you’re causing division.”

Today, there are so many false and watered down false gospels being preached today. Messages which require no real repentance, commitment and do not recognize the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We can see this in the modern translations of the Bible which are constantly changing God’s word, and pseudo “gospel” presentations given to the tickling ears. 

The “Love Gospel” perverts God’s Word by twisting scripture to suit an agenda. Sound doctrine is ignored in order to justify  a false unity for the sake of peace.

Here is a typical misconstrued scripture by the followers of the “Love Gospel.”

Mark 9: 38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our part. For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of [these] little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

The “Love Gospel” uses this verse without examining all scripture within its context in order to overlook testing the spirts, proving all things and examining ourselves to see if we are in the true faith as scriptures also exhort. While there may be some who follow Jesus that do not belong to “our” church that does not mean that all who come in Jesus name are of the truth. Sound Bible doctrine is important and we are commanded to defend the faith from those who would water it down, pervert it, or deny it.

Jude 13. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Galatians 16. I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, IF ANY [man] PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL UNTO YOU THAN THAT YE HAVE RECEIVED, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. For do I now persuade men, or God? or DO I SEEK TO PLEASE MEN? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Is Paul being divisive and judgmental? Not at all ! Paul is demonstrating his love for Jesus by defending the faith against the invading wolves and false teachers which he said would sneak into the fold.

Matthew 7:13 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

1 John 511 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. HE THAT HATH THE SON HATH LIFE; [and] HE THAT HATH NOT THE SON OF GOD HATH NOT LIFE. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God

2: Matthew 7 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and THEN THOU SHALT SEE CLEARLY to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

The Bible clearly says do not judge if you are doing the same things but it says to stop doing wrong things so you can judge righteously. We don’t throw out judging altogether! Christians are commanded to JUDGE between sound doctrine and error . Christians are not supposed to blindly accept any wind of teaching. The Bereans would be able to reject any false doctrine because it would not line up with the Word.

Acts 17:10. And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming [thither] went into the synagogue of the Jews.These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

God’s Word also says Matthew 7:15 15. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

2 Peter 2:1 1. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

1 John 4:1 1. Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

1 Corinthians 6:2 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

1 Corinthians 14:29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

Christians are to put every teaching to the test of the Bible, God’s Word. If the teaching does NOT line up with the Word….then REJECT it! We are living in the last days when many will not endure sound doctrine. Seducing spirits and doctrines of devils are coming into the Churches in droves and rather than rejecting them and standing for truth, the “Love’ Gospel ” promotes unity over truth of scriptures.

The “love” gospel does not want to hear about repentance, or sin, or hell or judgment but these are all scriptural concepts and we are commanded to preach them!

1 Timothy 4:1 1. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2 Corinthians 11:13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather REPROVE [them].

Psalms 94:16 16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? [or] who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

The “love gospel” adherents, afraid of persecution, will end up “loving” people to hell fire! If you really have God’s love in your heart you will preach the truth. Warn the sinner of future judgment and hell fire for rejecting Jesus Christ. Tell them that God loved the world that he sent Jesus to die for them but also tell them that God’s wrath is upon all who reject so great salvation.
