“The fulfillment of the law is Jesus Christ – the old covenant is done and dusted; and is an ongoing insult – to the Lord Jesus Christ to post otherwise.
The bulk of humanity will be cast into the lake of fire and burnt; only those who have been given the “chance” to become the sons and daughters of God, may be saved.
Everyone who is not found “IN” the righteousness of Christ, (book of life) will be burnt; along with the earth. So please, quit cherry picking the scriptures – to suit your itching ears!”
The above statement is at the heart of who Jesus Christ is, and why he was sent to die on a cross.
So many heresies exist today, because of false brethren, who have not eyes to see – or to even teach the scriptures as a whole in contexts.
I read allot of “Christian Posts” nowadays, which completely miss the message of the Gospel of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The use of the scriptures were written to, and for the actual “elect” brethren (Ecclesia) of the Lord; as to read and understand; while being led of the Holy Spirit of God.
It was NOT written to the wicked to debate; or cast aspersions onto the actual spirit filled brethren; yet I must say, that is how it’s usually used, by the children of the devil; (the accusers, of the actual brethren).
This is why, “though evangelism has its place” the gathering and teaching of the Saints MUST BE limited to the actual “Spirit Filled” believers; and Satan’s People MUST be left outside the gathering!
Attacks (persecution), marginalization, (blood of the Saints) as referenced in Revelations 17 – does not always produce martyrdom; but it can, and does; as exhibited by the Great Whore church – and Her Daughters! *This is of course – NOT the Bride of Christ, but religion done in the name of Christ, independent – within the natural or flesh.
This “persecution” is normally not a planned, calculated, or a four brained attack initially; but is rather a “reaction of the flesh”, to the one who is “found to be” functioning in Christ by Spirit! The reason is the flesh (sin nature) wars against the Holy Spirit – as they are enemies of the highest caliber.
While a “child of God” who has simply misunderstood a scriptural text, for example; will receive correction graciously (joyously) from another “spirit filled Elder” who will gently redirect the error, in accordance with sound doctrine, by experience and which is recorded within the scriptures.
Yet in contrast; the one who is of a “different spirit” cannot, nor will not see their error of their hearts. They will vehemently reject reproof, and correction of the Holy Spirit (of sin) – as the truth has no place in them.
If you think these warring factions, is no more than just an intellectual disagreement: you are sadly mistaken; and do not understand the spiritual world in the least! Yet for many, this is not their fault; due to the “Western Mind” (independent of God) attempting to understand and reason devoid of HIM – which is sin made manifested at a basal level, and normally not understood.
1 JOHN 4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.2 *Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
* Confesseth in the flesh*: is referring to Christ made crucified in “their flesh”: or does “that individual” actually have the indwelling Holy Spirit, within them..? AND; only can, the actual child of God recognizes the same spirit; because “HE” s a witness, to “His own”.
1 Corinthians 1:18 -31 is an explanation of natural or intellectual understanding; as opposed to spiritual understanding..*Also note how the word Antichrist is used; the text is NOT speaking about the – Lawless one (that Wicked) who is to be revealed – it is speaking about those preaching “another way” than to be crucified in Christ!
1 Corinthians 2:14 – But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
I could go on and on tonight, in exhibiting scriptural texts of this manner; yet systematic theologies which have been interpreted in the natural understanding of the scriptures; (starting with Constantine) have over a millenniums head start – on me, so it is but useless to teach them – who cannot receive what I am attempting to express in this post.
Please allow me the privilege to thank my Elder brother Justin Hughes, whom was provided for me in actual fellowship (that I prayed for, yet rarely experienced) : for taking the time to correct in me over the years; in my misunderstanding, of many an “unsound” doctrine; taught to me by those who were limited by “spiritual immaturity” – or worse, of the spirit of Antichrist … 1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
*** Do you know what I have discovered… The vast majority of those who claim Christ’s name; * have never even seen HIM nor known HIM. They just talk a good show – while tickling peoples ears: so beware brother and sister of the Lord, lest you be confused in your walk with HIM: as I once was!
