How long before pope Benny is selling indulgences; licence to sin against God, to make money? The horrors that go on in the Name of Jesus are astonishing. Let’s make sure we are not distracted by them, but make sure that we just write off church and all its nonsense and move on.

Knowing all about Jesus Christ in the Bible, is not the same as following Jesus Christ and entering into his heavenly kingdom now, by the “Spirit of Truth”. The “SPIRIT of error” (Antichrist) normally distracts most who will not “abise in the vine” who is Christ himself, or they never knew him to begin with! Systematic theologies (perhaps unknowingly) are a distraction from moving in the Lord oneself.

How on earth did Satan manage to build such a vast evil beast as the church that you see out there? How did he enslave so many when actually he has no power of his own?

What are these ones going to do when Satan is revealed?
I was in a slightly heated debate yesterday concerning the Bible passage about the meaning of the ten virgins found in Matthew 25: 1-13. The reason for this is NOT an academic reason concerning doctrinal understanding, rather it goes much deeper than that to the heart of people’s “eternal security “ as it brings into question at a personal level the question whether or not they actually have, or are following Christ!
The Lord showed me this, this morning as I awoke. Now then, in making such a statement “most” will immediately be offended, as this revelation was received by me, by way of the cross, which is always offensive to “enemies of the cross” and is indeed coined in Scripture as the “offence of the cross”. This is why Jesus said that you will be hated of all men for my namesake. Even those who claim to be followers of him, but have never seen him or known him spiritually, and is what the Bible is all about, in being written to actual disciples, who actually have a living relationship with the Lord God of Israel!
I have noticed that one of Satan’s counterfeit to this, always conceived and promoted in the mind and always operating in the natural, independent of the Lord, is Bible based beliefs’ about “physical Israel” as opposed to “spiritual Israel” – (the elect) whom the Bible is actually addressing, always turns into am intellectual or theological discussion by defaulting to the natural mind, instead of being led by the Holy Spirit of God in Christ. The natural mind receives not the things of God, so if I have lost you it is not because of some emotionally driven understanding that I have, but rather, you cannot receive on a spiritual level, shall I call it the “wavelength” which the Lord actually transmits on, to his actual followers.
So then, physical Israel must then become the focus of prophecy, as that can be understood to some degree within natural understanding on the world stage. I see allot of posts on Israel and the United States as an example within so called Christian blogs, video transmissions, books and so forth, yet this is all irrelevant, as it is simply leaning to natural understanding; which an actual disciple shouldn’t give a hang about, as it is all based in carnality and human pride.
I am using this passage in Matthew 25 to show that fallen carnality is most often used when attempting to teach the Bible nowadays, it is showing how men will not endure sound doctrine, but would rather have their ears tickled by what they wish to hear! In the beginning of the texts it plainly states [Matt 25: 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.]
The Kingdom of heaven is speaking to, the Kingdom of heaven which is inside of all those who are with the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. The Bridegroom is Jesus Christ himself, whom actual disciples know and are supposed to abide in as a faithful bride. The Harlot Church [Rev 17] in contrast are those who are unfaithful and “none of his”, who are drunk on the blood of the saints (spiritually speaking) and the martyrs of Jesus.
To teach that the one set of five virgins are for the “church age” and that the others five virgins are in “the time of Jacobs troubles” the 144,000 found in Revelation 7 (after the admittance to the wedding, then wedding feast, is ludicrous to put under the microscope in this manner), as the passage taken in contexts is speaking about being ready for the wedding feast of the lamb – and does not include those who were unprepared in having and abiding in the Holy Spirit of God, which is symbolized by the oil in representation!
To me, this is the mixing of apple and oranges in using eschatology, while attempting to tie in the ten virgins of Matthew 25, the five of which were not ready, can not to my understanding, be tied into Revelation 7. Luke 12:35-37 will take allot more prayer and research, in seeing if the texts are in proper order and translation; which I suspect the meaning has been unintentionally mis- written, or lost in translation, as it would seem to conflict with other scriptures to best of my knowledge?
And even if there were some obscure spiritual meaning in relating to the blood line tribes of Israel towards the end of the age, this would not negate that these elect are any different than any other elect individuals of God, with the exception that they are attempting to understand an event which could even be a millennium off in the future, which surely doesn’t concern them nor the ten virgin allegory as found in Matthew 25: 1-13. This is a tough one, but I am confident I will be shown, if it concerns me in the future.
It is not my intent to pick on Steven Lawson, or any particular person, or church group, I am simply using this photo to speak to a much broader problem… You cannot teach people into Jesus Christ, it is His soveriegn work by grace alone!
As the TRUTH, is only accessed through the person of Jesus Christ (not just doctrines about him), only because of his atonement on the cross, must be addressed.
I feel particularly qualified to speak on such Reformed teachings, as I was raised in this aspect concerning the Bible and the faith.
My #1 point being, that if one has actually started with Jesus Christ with initial repentance, they do indeed have a personal connection with the Father. If they can’t hear Him, they either are too immature spiritually (not knowing they can hear) , or don’t really know Him; as you cannot follow someone you don’t actually know, or decided to walk in independence of.
Although many use the Bible as a base for their belief system(s) and doctrines; simply adhering to the scriptures, has never made natural man a follower of the Lord God. This is why, in particularly, Jesus had the greatest problems with the scribes and Pharisees in the days he walked the earth.
Audibly hearing the Lord God is indeed possible, “when and if” He decides to speak in such a manner. Yet under normal circumstances, brethren are simply led by the Spirit of God (His voice within them) in various ways: (which also includes time and circumstances – just like the Lord speaks to the natural, or unregenerate man).
#2. Now since Satan is the ultimate counterfeiter in all that the Lord may do, many are led astray, or deceived by a “different spirit” than the Lord God’s Holy Spirit. This is why a disciple is told to discern the “spirits” and hold to the one who is genuine (1 John 4).
To the western or natural mind “SPIRITS” are a ridiculous concept, so they are simply discarded, or “paid lip service to”, for the simple reason they are found within the scriptures. Normally what I call “Bible worship” happens because of a lack of spiritual understanding among the brethren, or they have never “Seen Him nor Known Him” (in Spirit). So, simply following the scriptures, can become a type of surrogate to Jesus Christ – which can be achieved in the natural (flesh), instead of actually “entering in” with Jesus Christ on a spiritual level. This is what the Apostle John referred to as an Antichrist, and the Apostle Paul referred to as an enemy of the cross, like in the book of Galatians. When taken in contexts, an Antichrist is not against Christ per say, but is rather a replacement to Christ – which is another Gospel completely!
The other problem which emerges with actually following Jesus Christ in Spirit and in truth; is emotionalism often coupled with poor doctrinal understanding, is often mistaken for spirituality by the spiritually immature, with soulish experiences (emotions) confused with “the Spirit”, or more dangerously those who are deceived by “another spirit”. This is why most Churches cannot discern between the human Spirit, or the human Soul (they think it the same), not to mention the Holy Spirit of God.
So, it is much easier to teach Bible Doctrines from a man orchestrated school or organization, than it is to actually know, follow, and commune with the Father, through the Lord Jesus Christ!
*Against God, and the things of God, are the order of the day.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
The founding fathers, although many were associated with the Mason’s, and admittedly have designed Masonic undertones (witchcraft) in the layout of the capital, were visibly built using much Roman architecture to reflect the Roman republic, prior to Augustus Caesar in 27 BC.
This new Constitutional government was designed to focus on individual liberties, without the interference of an all-powerful and oppressive central government, or Monarchy’s so common in the old world for centuries.
Federalism, although misunderstood today, is actually based on the limitations of a centralized government. Federalism was designed to put limits on power, by a breakdown of powers in using checks and balances in the different offices created to protect liberties, rather than rule by sheer unadulterated power over the people. It is limited by State powers, Counties, and local Municipalities’. Anti-federalist, (used to traditional European rule) debated the Federalist’s years prior to legal bills being voted upon, and then finally ratified by congress into the U.S. Constitution.
The objective of this new system of governance by the founders was to take advantage “by design” the wickedness of men, by instituting checks and balances’ of powers. This was to become the grand American experiment never attempted before, which eventually changed the world forever, in the course of human endeavor and productivity, whose people enjoyed an unparalleled freedom.
In the beginning, the “new” United States of America, would not allow foreign governments and banks to manipulate their currency, as it was considered a direct part of the people’s labor and considered subservient only to the people, like their newly formed government was designed to be.
America was not immune by attacks and being manipulated by foreign powers. During the American Civil War, world banks and secret societies including the Jesuits in Rome, attempted to undermine and destroy the union, and Protestantism, as to possess and reap the benefits of a very fertile land and its people.
Abraham Lincoln understood that divide and conquer techniques were being applied from all those who would benefit from the nation’s demise. Slavery was always understood to be one of the greatest devises used in opposition to “a more perfect union” as Lincoln put it, since the inception of this new Constitutional form of Government. The Emancipation Proclamation was proclaimed by executive order by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863 to the rebellious states for military reasons, and because he believed abolition of slavery was the only sound and just solution within the Constitution.
Nowadays, what I consider to be a lot of half-baked, and half-truth conspiracy theories exist today upon the internet. Some are purposely put forth for political reasons, and others are a conglomerate of different historical facts and figures which tend to produce self-fulfilling prophesies and ideals, while still others are done in ignorance, and an out of contexts understanding.
Relativism as taught in many a progressive school, has also produced a blurred understanding of events and powers associated with the “American Experiment”, which in my view, has been more successful than any other form of Government ever produced by humanity in the history of the world.
This is not to say that a believer in Jesus Christ, in any way shape or form should worship such man orchestrated institutions, yet perspective does demand that they be placed in balance within the fallen world.
Jesus said that his kingdom was not of this world, and it certainly is not, so we must focus on him alone within our daily lives and not be distracted by earthly events. Yet if we are to examine earthly institutions, it is only appropriate to do so with a balanced perspective while understanding truth from twisted truths, (otherwise known as lies).
May the Lord God of Israel bless you with the light in which to understand all things within perspective.
John 4:24 (KJV)
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Most of those who start with the Lord never register that once the body of believer’s accepts those of a different spirit (1 John 4) within their midst, it is just a matter of time until the spirit of antichrist overruns the fellowship.
Satan, the father of lies, seeks to destroy any actual work of God, by “replacement therapy” that is he replaces the spirit of truth, who is Jesus Christ – with a look alike spirit, or false replacement spirit which is religious in nature.
Remember I am speaking about the spiritual dimension here, and not simply doctrinal or intellectual understanding, which is based on the Bible, rather than dependency upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, who is the Truth of God made manifest to the elect, by the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.
John 1 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
In the beginning was the word – the “Word of God” this is speaking about the Lord himself, obviously to most, so how is it that a printed texts on a page (Scripture) becomes The Word of God, as commonly espoused? That would be impossible as the Bible was not present in the beginning. It is but a record about God, Satan, and humanity, although divinely inspired.
The Bible is but confirmatory to us who stand on “The Rock”, yet it is not “The Rock itself”, that title is only ever given to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
At this point many will start thinking theologically, even checking my doctrine against the scripture, which is fine, however let me remind you again that I am speaking about the spiritual world, and the ins and outs of spiritual deceptions given by the master of deception, Satan who is intellectually superior to any human being.
So rather than leaning to our own natural understanding, we must instead push in with Christ in Spirit and in Truth!
Rather than becoming mired in thought, I write this post today with the hope the reader will understand why most churches – “all” institutionalized churches eventually, lead towards spiritual death. That’s right, it is because no matter how well-intentioned ministers may be, that (perhaps unknowingly) they have taken on the role of Jesus Christ himself in the hearts of many followers!
This is the “Spirit of Antichrist” which is consistently used of Satan since the death and resurrection of the Lord, beware!
I see a lot of Bible based doctrines attempting to be used in support of Dec 25 in celebrating Christ’s birth. This is a Pagan festival painted with Christian names and dates. Luke 2:1-20 (as an example) merely recognizes Christ’s birth, (probably in the spring of the year) yet as a disciple we are NEVER instructed to do “Christian Religion” about any dates or times, even when using the Bible.
You will remember that only the Galatians ever celebrated dates and times, and the Apostle Paul burned their ears for it. He did this for a very good reason, so as not to become distracted away from the TRUTH, who is only found by abiding in Christ the true vine, and not an “antichrist religious’ spirit” which was created by Satan in using natural understanding to divert people away from actually walking with their Lord, each and every day to include the Sabbath, if one decides in his conscience to keep it.
There is a very fine edge between walking in the spirit of truth, in dependence upon the Lord, and walking independent of him, especially when caught up in doing religion about him, but not actually following him. This is in part because some of those who have made a profession of faith, have never “entered in” with him, and even more have never seen him nor known him.
It is my firm belief as in Revelation 13: that the second beast must become as the first beast, “Christian Universal Religious” the same Spirit of Antichrist as started in the Church of Rome. I can only speculate this is because it is Rome’s seven hills (Revelation 17 a Pagan temple rebuilt) who the mother of Harlots and her daughters will reveal Satan, and the Luciferian doctrines which powers in the world worship, (Revelation 18) so that Satan may take his very short reign upon the earth and then Babylon is destroyed by the “SWORD” of His mouth, and the “BRIGHTNESS” of His coming!
Additionally, the world will worship “Satan as God” while performing many signs and wonders, and only the true elect will NOT BE deceived of this very powerful and false spirit, whose only wish is to be put above the Lord God’s throne so he can be worshiped as such!
Be on guard against this “Spirit of antichrist” which has saturated “the Church”, and only continues to grow in strength within the “false vine” – until Satan is revealed and no longer has need for these whores, who are drunk on the blood of the Saints, and martyrs of Jesus!

Henry T. Blackaby – was only half right, as he produced courses and books trying to teach a lot of un-regenerates into Jesus Christ.
That cannot be accomplished by human efforts, nor will teaching the Bible to false brethren, ever produce anything good!
Time is like a river.
You cannot touch the water twice,
because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote:
The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio.Â The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.
A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers”
have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.
You will never again out-vote these people.Â It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away.Â It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard.Â The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order.
The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.
Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness…
: Got the guts to pass it on? You bet I do and just did….
This transcript is from an e-mail I received, I don’t know it’s origins, but felt it was worth posting.
So many Bible doctrines exist today, that it is only the Lord God himself that can reveal the total unadulterated truth of the scriptures! Attempting to gain understanding of the scriptures is but futile when one moves in independence from the Lord in the flesh, this is why Paul called these brethren enemies of the cross!
Eschatology is simply an intellectual study of the end times events. It is defined by 4 different viewpoints normally. Yet this is all but unfruitful, if we do not follow Jesus Christ in Spirit and in Truth. Lean not to your own understanding, but in “all things” bring it before the Lord. Most will not, nor can not do this, as you must know someone in order to follow them – and in the end days, most do not know the Lord. 2 Thess 2 -Satan must come first, and then Christ returns for his Bride, not the Harlots of Rev 17-18!
This video is speaking about how Satan takes great pleasure in defiling anything which once claimed the name of Jesus Christ. Michael Wurmbrand in his letter specifically asked that we share his message with as many as possible in honoring his family name.
Sin is what separates us from Christ, even when we have come to him, and we must learn to walk in only Him who dwells within us!
This is the narrow way which Jesus spoke about, and no man made organization is able to hold Him: that is the Disciples job to do, and Revelation 17 reflects why.

How sad that so many do not begin to know what the truth is, let alone care.
People tend to focus on their interpretations of Bible doctrines rather than letting their eye be single and focusing on Jesus Christ who lives within them! In short, they lean towards their own understanding.
This is a trap of the enemy, assimilating facts and scriptures into the memory and leaning to one’s natural understanding rather than following Jesus in Spirit and in Truth. Spiritual Crucifixion of the “old man” must continually be put to death in Christ. Even seemingly good things done without the leading of the Holy Spirit must go if we are to be transformed into Christ’s image by way of the cross.
In the modern era, walking in the spirit of truth (who is Jesus Christ) seems ridiculous especially to the Western mind, it is considered emotionalism to many, and even worse sometimes unbiblical. But the truth be known, walking in the spirit is the ultimate in Biblical correctness!
What the Apostle John first coined as “Antichrist’s” were actual brethren who started with Christ, yet became diverted away from the cross, as their minds wanted to preach another gospel rather than total dependency on Jesus Christ and Him crucified. It is the same today, systematic theologies (religion) would rather learn up scripture in their heads and supplant the headship of Christ, often to be seen as “a leader” to others in the world, rather than walk in humble and simple obedience to Christ’s leading within them. The Apostle Paul called these “enemies of the cross” and the Spirit of antichrist has become the predominant spirit within Christianity as a whole! The word antichrist has been overused so much, that it has taken on a whole new meaning. The correct meaning is an alternative to Jesus Christ; and not some raving demonically charged hater of Jesus Christ, with the Hollywood version being portrayed as Satan incarnate.
Used in a historical sense, “The Antichrist” would be the man orchestrated placement of another man, who claims to represent Christ on earth. This would be in holding the office of the Pope of Rome, the mother of Harlots, and her bastard children (other whores). Who will reveal (Satan) the “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked”, King of Babylon, and so forth who is found in Revelations 17-18 and worshipped as God by all the world, prior to his destruction with the world.
Back to my main point of this article: the Smorgasbord of different “so called” Biblical doctrines are mind-boggling today, all types of Salvation by Gnostics, Legalisms, Lineage, Mysticism, Pantheism, Penance, Universalisms, to name a few and specific twisting to individual scriptures by all types of cults to achieve their ends. Whereas the Gospel of Jesus Christ is quite simple for us who know him, it is to simply follow him (and no other) in spirit and in truth, as we have a love for the truth (Jesus Christ) that we “might be” saved ultimately!
On a personal note: I have never been an academic in being able to rely on myself to function using rote memorization, even when referring to the scriptures. In fact, I have found that the Lord God normally frustrates any of my attempts to sound educated in the flesh, unless He be pleased to quicken a part of my 40 years of Bible or name and place of historical events which I have absorbed into my ADHD brain over time. This quickening has only happened once in my life on a massive scale; when I was trying to prove to the Church leadership that I was equipped to be an Elder. But the real problem was, that they didn’t want someone of “a different spirit” around, showing them up (so to speak) and making them feel bad. I was even able to confound a Harvard-educated Elder who the board of directors looked to for advice… but no appointment to that level of leadership was ever obtained, as they did not want the power of “Jesus Christ” in me to disrupt their institution! I was so frustrated by this rejection by those who claim Christ’s name as their Lord and savior, that I started searching elsewhere for acceptance to some other reformed denomination.
I was casting my pearls before swine, and they trampled and attacked me with a type of sympathetic love in an effort to hide their venom for anyone who could actually move and function in Jesus Christ, in being a living testimony to His work! People call me spiritually proud, or even bitter for the rejection I experienced within the leadership, but the truth be known – John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Of course there is no convincing others many who have taken the broad road away from Christ, that indeed you are in the right place, (and they are not) when discerning their independence from the Lord God in being enemies of the cross. Nor can you teach someone who has never been born again of spirit, how to move and function in the things of God.
Thus, for a mental bridge, even devoid of different doctrines, you have 3 types of Christians:
- The disciple who moves and follows Christ alone in spirit and in truth;
- The broad roader with the (spirit of antichrist) who has replaced Christ in their lives to be comfortable in the world in some way;
- And finally, false brethren who have never been elect towards salvation, but have learned up Bible doctrines in their intellect.
I would like to say in closing, that although it was painful in suffering rejection from the world and it’s institutions to a large degree within my life, and being loathed (especially by man orchestrated Chuuurch) it has been well worth these trials in being able to move, understand, and function in Jesus Christ which few others can understand simply because I am graced by His work in my life through dependency, rather than being stumbled in my own understanding!
This is the very thing which always plagued me the most!
You see, if you were chosen by God before the foundations of the earth, you WILL come to Christ at some point in your life! In contrast, all the evangelism in the world will have no effect on the non- elect, known in the scriptures as the wicked!
Yes, of course, this is a “Bible-based theology” yet the Bible only applies to God’s actual people – the ones who follow Him, yet to follow someone is to know that person, and not just all about Him! This is what Satan does, he mimics’ the “things of God”, as he cannot actually produce them.
Systematic theologies are Satan’s invention, that’s right, what better way to attack and lead astray the ecclesia of God than to counterfeit the real thing which is only found by abiding in Christ! They are the sons of God who are led of the Spirit of God, also, lean not to your own understanding is also scriptural, but for only the Lord’s actual followers, and it doesn’t matter how well someone has learned up scripture and doctrines in their head!
In fact, Bible-based churches nearly always will just confuse and stumble an actual disciple of Christ, as they are taught by people normally of the spirit of Antichrist; those who started with us yet will not be conformed to his image by crucifixion of the old man. Normally the broad roader; the ones who started in regeneration, but took the wide way of the world is doing “church” instead. moving towards their own justification (of which there is none) they will dry up and die spiritually, and with a head full of theology! Or there are the ones who cannot, nor ever could follow Christ, (false believers) as they have never known Him, and were not elected to begin with. This is why Paul said he was in peril by false believers!
Towards the end of time the scripture teaches that only a scatter few (a remnant) are only really God’s elect people, and out of these, the majority choose the comfort of this world, rather than to actually follow Christ!
It is most convenient to teach Bible-based doctrines which give comfort to the masses of brethren – who have left their first love (like in Galatians), and turned to fables rather than remaining in the Truth – who is Jesus Christ himself! Just go online today and read the description listed on the doctrines of most any “church”; if they are Bible based, most will cherry pick the scriptures teaching things like covenant theology. They have nursery schools and youth groups teaching proper Bible, normally to most who will never come to Christ; yet could argue the chrome off a bumper using the Bible!
These type of brethren are wall to wall nowadays, as man orchestrated institutions of learning (accredited by the world) crank out those with a form of Godliness, but not the power thereof – from such turn away the Bible teaches! I could go on and on belaboring the point, yet it is of no use, as the natural mind (understanding) receives not the things of God! 1 John 4 is very specific about testing the spirits, but if you have not the spirit of Christ, you cannot know or even discern a difference in people or what spirit they are of, unless of course it is blatantly obvious they practice wickedness. Yet amazingly today, there are also many churches who will accept the most grievous of sinful lifestyles as this is what Satan does to try to destroy the name of the Lord, and His testimony to the world.
Come out of Her my people, and you will not be partaker’s in her plagues (blows) as the scripture warns in Revelations. It is no coincidence that the mother of Harlots sits upon the 7 hills – rivers of Rome, and her daughters (who are female) because they follow another than Jesus Christ himself (BY SPIRIT) not just by doctrines or even sound doctrine.
But the academic church loves to quote 2 Timothy 2:15 – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Well, firstly it is speaking about a workman (as in doing the Lord’s work) – and not just an academic; and to rightly divide the word of truth, one needs The Spirit of Truth (Jesus Christ) to lead the individual in the meaning of the scriptures. If you operate independent of Him, at best you are out of fellowship with God, and in sin, and you cannot be expected to rightly divide any particular passage of the Bible!
Yet this is what false brethren do – they operate independently of the Lord. This is why the scripture says that without Christ, you can do nothing! But never mind that scripture if one is capable of moving in their own strength, and that’s what man’s church systems continually do!
I will have NO part in moving independently of my Lord in serving the world or people of the world unless directed to do so, and then and only then, will I be sent forth in power and in Truth. Satan’s world today follows a doctrine of all-inclusiveness in churches, but the disciple must follow a doctrine of exclusiveness only to Christ who dwells within him.
Isn’t it all becoming very clear now?
