It goes like this .If you are to set a trap for a mice you do not use 100% poison .
It is more palatable to the mice when you set 99% good food say cheese or what ever and 1% poison.
Now one would think that is not enough to kill a mice. Believe me its enough.
Its the same with truth,a half lie and a lie is the same as 6 and a 1/2 dozen.
They are the same don't matter how you slice it.
Biblical truth some would say is subject to interpretation.
That is one of the biggest deception that has been planted in the hearts and teaching of the world.
The Bible interprets itself .
Does God words require my spin on it?or my take on it?
Does God seek not to make things clear to us from his word ?
Do we serve an ambiguous God.
Even the most challenging scriptures in the Bible may I say Revelation and Daniel the Bible interprets for itself,if you have doubt look here.
The Devil has devised a well thought out plan.It is the deception of all deceptions. The stakes are high and the prize is of infinite value. SOULS .
There are many who have been thought on well concocted cocktail of fanciful Christian"teachings.
Teachings that are not based solely on the word of God. No advice is taken from
Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Isaiah 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
Deuteronomy 17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
2Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Even these Scripturs mention above follow their own admonitions. YOU MUST FIND IT IN MORE THAT 2 PLACES FOR IT TO BE ESTABLISH AS FACT.
Some people teach doctrines based on one piece of scripture. the traditions of men if used alone gives us warrant to say the Bible contradicts itself.
But if ministers and leaders would not be so closed minded, so lazy , if they would measure line upon line here a little there a little they will find the unity of thought in Bible.God says woe ,Let me quote the text Jeremiah 23:1, also Isaiah 56 all of it has some stern rebuke for leaders who lead the flock astray. If its one thing i love about my church/movement is this they beseech members "you must search the word for yourselves to proof what is says is true ".
By the way am not a minister.
Some ministers neglect the idea of searching the scriptures like the Bereans did.
They see one statement and run with it, most times out of context and not seek to see if it falls in harmony with other scriptures that speak to the same theme or topic. Did not God know that a people would seek to nullify His Word by not showing its thoroughness ?
Another thing that is happening in this here times is a lot of varied theologies are going around with roots in pagan teachings, not the teaching that Christ or the Bible teaches in the old testament and new testament. This was predicted by Isaiah click here for brief view.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
In order to to be friendly with the teaching of the world and make the gospel more palatable many a men seek to water down the word of God with their own gospel and that of traditions.
What is so dangerous is they mix 99% Good Food(Truth) with 1% poison(error).Nullifying the effect of the pure gospel.
The Bible says :
2Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 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.
9 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.
The Devil is cunning, he knows if all of Christendom have varied views then many on the outside will come to the view that there is no absolute truth. Is Christ Divided ? He the devil also knows that if he can some how contaminate foundation truth such as
- The state of the dead,
- The sanctuary service,
- The sabbath.
- The nature of Christ.
- The nature of his second coming
- The nature of the Judgement.
- If Prophecy is curupted.
He knows if these can be corrupted, there would be further grounds to contaminate much more than he otherwise couldn't. By touching a few he destroyed many many almost the whole Bible. Ask the Jesuits.
The Jesuit and the pagan church has work this plan perfectly on all protestants to reverse the reformation. Sadly we have surcomed to the poison.Now this is so routed in the varied denomiations they have much problems grasping what is truth.Thus many will return to the "Mother church" of Rome. Click here if you dont believe this ..Its happening as we speak.
1. People are confuse about the Sabbath.They think its Sunday the 1st day, not Saturday is the true Sabbath. Some says its not important, many teach Christ is the Sabbath rest.There arguments are mixed with truth and error.The Bible teaches what the day mean and the importance of Sabbath observance. Not one text can be given to prove the Sabbath is done away with. When ever the topic is brought up . Even pastors will hop skip and jump from one thing to the next to justify the sabbath day is not important they tell you. But all the other Commandments are to be kept.
"Grace did away with it"they tell you "the first day is the sabbath",they tell you "Christ is the sabbath rest" They tell you a new commandment".So much reasons,"you are saved by Grace and not the law. I ask which law The ceremonial law or the 10 commands. They ask what is the ceremonial law? They don't even realize God Gave Moses two laws one written by Gods own finger in table of stone (Exodus 31:18) (Exodus 24:12) (Exodus 34:1) (Exodus 34:4) (Deuteronomy 9:10) and the Ceremonial law which he dictated to Moses who wrote it in a book/scroll (Deuteronomy 28:61 ) (Deuteronomy 31:24-26 notice that its the same law refer to in Collosians 3:14 which was against us and contrary to us.Well they say that verse 16 says sabbath days the fail to realize there were ceremonial Sabbaths as mention in Leviticus 23 :24 . you are not saved by any law 10 commanments or Ceremonial but because you are saved you live right by obedience to the 10 commands .
The ceremonial law is not the same law in the 10 commandments .No its not .. It requires no interpretations just read line upon line precept upon precept here a little there a little . Some members of many protestant churches are too lazy to read the Bible themselves. They love smooth things being preached to them .If in doubt see the sabbath from a historical perspective, even history attest to the true sabbath day and its importance.History also told us even show who change it to Sunday. The world runs on deception.
2. Many Christians believe there is a soul floating around after death. The purgatory pagan theory has push this into the realm of truth although its an error that will come to haunt many in the last days of earths history.Thus the world now is taken by storm by spiritualism in all forms , Hollywood movies,astrology,spirit healing. The Bible clearly teaches: Psalms 146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Psalms 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. And many text supports this but again good food with a little poison is given.
3. The Secret rapture theory. another old Jesuit plantation with the intent to deceive. See the truth about the secret rapture.. its too long for me to explain here.
So many are deceived.
What ever i have said in this entry ,don't take my word for it . Go research on your own. 1Thessalonians 5:21: Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
Read your Bible measure line upon line precept upon precept,here a little there a little that's how the bible prescribe searching for truth should be done.
I leave with you 2 Timothy 3:10-17 10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them ;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
- Gods word is true.
- It does not Contradict itself
- God does not change neither does his word
- Its profitable for doctrine reproof ,correction in righteousness that the man of God may be thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
- Its prophecies are sure.
- It maintains unity of thought and theme from Genesis to Exodus.Even over 1500 years God inspired words through men from varied walks of life ,Mathew Luke, John (doctors,fishermen etc) yet unity of thought was maintained.
- The Book survived how is that possible. though it has permeated to many contaminated versions pushed of coursed by you know whom.The Vatican you are probably getting tired of this of course see the 10 commandment catholic style and you will get the message why over thousands of changes were made to Scriptures to suit the pagan Roman church. Even whole chapters are gone missing hence the jehovah's witness Bible is so different ,They just cross out scriptures .. google search Gail Riplinger or the New age Bible versions she explain.
My friends the Truth is the truth and Gods word is the truth..
