ISAIAH 11: 1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots. 2 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. 3 His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears; 4 But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
ACTS 7:51 “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you. 52 Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers, 53 who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it.”
RV 3:5 “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
MT 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
de•cep•tion (d¹-sµp“sh…n) n. 1. The use of deceit. 2. The fact or state of being deceived. 3. A ruse; a trick.
Anybody can be deceived and many Christians are thinking they are once saved always saved, they have a very special relationship with God, they are better than others, and God will defend and avenge them? In most cases it’s all a deception because they have not met God’s conditions to be true for them! In other words they are not true men or women of God
Yes, there are some believers who have never received the Gift of Speaking in other national languages (tongues) and do not have the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. But, this prevents them from having the kind of relationship with Jesus and doing the ministry to which we are all called. There is no doubt that some people hear God speak to them occasionally. But we are supposed to hear Him speak to us everyday. When Jesus said to each of the Seven Churches in the Book of Revelation and commanded each of them, “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches” (Rev. 2: 7, 11, 17, 29; 3: 6, 13, 22), He is tell us to listen to the Holy Spirit every day. Hearing occasionally from God is not what He desires.
The Holy Spirit is supposed to speak to us every day. This is what the Greek says in John 16: 26: “he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said and done” every day. Not an occasional time when He can catch our attention. He, the Holy Spirit, is called Counsellor (Grk. defense attorney). He is supposed to be able to “guide you into all the truth” every day. Being able to hear from God is not supposed to be once in a while when He can catch our attention. No, all of that changes when we receive the authentic Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the “signs following” because speaking in tongues is God’s new communications system. Without the “signs” (Mk. 16: 17 – 18) we are not authentic believers (Greek definition defined in the Greek Lexicon (dictionary). To rely on some teacher who speaks in tongues is not adequate. People who reject what Jesus wants us to have are deceiving themselves.
It is easy for people to dismiss applying the “adding and taking away from the Book of Revelation” which is true. But, there is no dismissing what Paul said to the Corinthian Church who had two groups of people in the church who did not want to accept the Baptism of the Holy Spirit when he wrote “I have applied all this to myself and Apollos for your benefit brethren, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up (full of pride) in favour of one against the other” (1 Cor. 4: 6). This means, in an other way, “don’t add or take away from the Scriptures”. When a person does this, they appear to be arrogant as if all the work that Jesus has done for us is not necessary, that in some way or another, I can pick and choose what I want out of the Scriptures, like some kind of a spiritual smagasbord.
Rejecting the any of the Gifts of the Holy SpirIt, especially the Gift of speaking in national languages (Grk: 1 Cor. 12: 10) is at the least a subconscious or conscious rejection of God’s daily communications system so a person does not have to listen to what Jesus or our Heavenly Father wants to say to us every day through the Holy Spirit. This arrogance has led many people away from their “Normal Christian Life”. It reminds me of what happened when God led the Israelites out of Egypt and up to Mount Sinai. Remember, they did not want God to speak to them, “Go near, and hear all that the LORD (Yahweh) our God will say; and speak to us all that the LORD (Yahweh) will speak to you; and we will hear and do it” (Deut. 5: 27).
Our God wants to have a personal speaking relationship with us daily which He establishes with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and as described on the Day of Pentecost all 120 believers were filled with the Holy Spirit and had the proof of speaking in new languages. Rejecting, the good Gifts (Lk. 11: 13) of the Holy Spirit demonstrates that people are in rebellion against God’s will and they will use any excuse, like the Israelites, so they will not have to listen to Him everyday.
In the Corinthian Church were three groups of people: believers who were Baptized with the Holy Spirit and had the initial gift of speaking in tongues; unbelievers who were seeking for God; a group of new believers who rejected the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Gifts of the Holy Spirit. These new believers did not have the Holy Spirit and they rejected the work of the Holy Spirit. The Greek word to describe them is “idiotes” singular, “idiotoi” plural from which we derive the word “idiot” or “idiots” which describes “one without professional knowledge, ignorant and common person” which is the same definition in Greek. These people are what Paul describes when he wrote, “The unspiritual (psychikos) man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually (pneumatikos) discerned” (1 Cor. 2: 14). Unspiritual person is one who does not have the Holy Spirit and who betrays himself to others who do by his/her rejection of the the Holy Spirit and His Gifts (1 Cor. 12: 13; Rom. 12: 6 – 8; 1 Cor. 12: 8 – 10). Such people make their decisions by means of their human spirit/soul (psyche).
Do you not know about John MacArthur? He is identifying people who are false apostles, teachers and prophets and who are obviously not doing the work of the Holy Spirit. He is correct on the one hand but on the other hand, he blasphemes the Holy Spirit by denying that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the “Signs Following” and the “Gifts of the Holy Spirit” are for today. And, attributes them to the devil or demons. He, himself, blasphemes the Holy Spirit because he cannot identify the legitimate works of the Holy Spirit. He is a cessationist who believes that the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit stopped with the first apostles. He is widely known to be against the legitimate works of the Holy Spirit. Many years ago, a man who did research for MacArthur, put my first report on the Toronto-so-called blessing on his web page. He was trying to use my report to substantiate the wrongs in the TACF even though he did not agree with me about the Holy Spirit. His message, which I listened to, is about character building and correcting other people’s ideas about the Doctrine of the Trinity. If you listen to it carefullly, he never refers to the authentic New Testament miraculous works of the Holy Spirit. He does not have a healing ministry. He is a modern-day Pharisee of whom Jesus described when he said, “You are wrong because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29). I was given a collection of his books (3 box full) a couple of years ago but he just doesn’t get it. And, of course, he doesn’t know or understand the Holy Spirit and His works. He is a model-evangelical who has never received the Holy Spirit and operates on a human understanding. He is best described by Paul, who wrote, “The unspiritual man (psychikos) does not receive the gifts (things) of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually (pneuamtikos) discerned” (1 Cor. 2: 14). I would be very careful about referring people to him. As the TACF is wrong on the one side, he is equally wrong on the other side. The truth is in the center with the New Testament which neither side wants to accept and so they both “blaspheme against the Holy Spirit”.
Yours in Jesus Christ, Gordon
YES IDIOTS REMAIN IDIOTS AND “LOVE COVERS ALL SINS” DOESN’T MEAN WE ARE TO ACCEPT LIARS, DECEIVERS, JUDIAZERS AND WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING?
RATHER THE BIBLE TEACHES WE ARE NOT TO BE PARTAKERS WITH THEM AND TO WITHDRAW FROM THEM
IT SEEMS THAT MANY CHRISTIANS ARE DECEIVED IDIOTS WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN EXPOSING ANYTHING EVEN THOUGH APOSTLE PAUL THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT INSTRUCTED CHRISTIANS
EPHESIANS 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),
10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.
14 Therefore He says: ” Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”
15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
1 Timothy 6:5 useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.
2 Thessalonians 3
6 But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us.
7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you;
8 nor did we eat anyone’s bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you,
9 not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.
12 Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
People who are devoid of miracles, signs and wonders, ie the power of the Holy Spirit, are deceivers who have a form of godliness but deny it’s power and are deceiving others
JUST BECAUSE SOME IDIOT SAYS HE IS AN APOSTLE MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. LET HIM PROVE THAT HE IS AN APOSTLE BY DOING WHAT JESUS DID
Matthew 4: 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.
John 2:15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables.
Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
Hebrews 3:1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
Fundamentalists including Baptists usually preach character but ignore what is also important and that is operating in the gifts of the Spirit as defined in 1 Corinthians 12 and 14
Don’t forget that Jesus wasn’t nice to king Herod and openly called him a fox Luke 13:31 On that very day some Pharisees came, saying to Him, “Get out and depart from here, for Herod wants to kill You.”
32 And He said to them, “Go, tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.’
AND JESUS MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS SO WE HAVE TO BOW DOWN TO NO MAN
ANY PREACHING THAT IS NOT IN THE PATTERN OF THE NEW TESTAMENT IS HOGWASH! THE NEW TESTAMENT TELLS HOW WE ARE TO PREACH UNDER THE NEW COVENANT WITH THE ANOINTING OF THE BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT: ACTS Acts 6: 5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch,
6: 8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.
8: 5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. 8 And there was great joy in that city.
As a Christian, you have authority over the forces of the enemy. “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19).
As a believer you have been given authority over all the power of the enemy, but not every Christian walks in this authority. Nevertheless, the authority is still there.
Grace is God’s willingness and ability to empower you with His abilities. Since nothing can defeat God, with His power in you, nothing can defeat you. So the next time you face the enemy, don’t run away from God and the things of God. Instead, run to God. Access His power and take dominion over sin.
GALATIANS 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
THAT MEANS THOSE WHO PREACH HERESIES SUCH AS REFORMED THEOLOGY ARE HERETICS WHO WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD
WHEN FOOLS SUPPORT PEOPLE LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA OR ANY OTHER FOOL OVER THE WORDS OF JESUS THEY ARE NOT WORTHY OF THE KING OF KINGS BUT BELONG IN HELL FOR JESUS WHO DOESN’T LIE TAUGHT THAT UNDER THE NEW COVENANT EACH BELIEVER HAS A PERSONAL PENTECOST WITH MIRACLES SIGNS AND WONDERS FOLLOWING. AND THERE IS NO HATE IN TELLING THE TRUTH THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HELL ALONG WITH OTHER LIARS AND UNBELIEVERS AND ACCURSED ONES WHO PREACH A DIFFERENT GOSPEL THAT JESUS OR APOSTLE PAUL PREACH ACCORDING TO RV 21:8 “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
FOR THE RECORD BIBLE KNOWLEDGE, SINCERITY, DISOBEDIENCE AND OTHER VIRTUES OF THE FUNDAMENTALIST OR EVANGELICAL FAITH MEAN NOTHING TO GOD WHO CAUSED HIS SERVANT JUDE THE BROTHER OF JESUS TO STATE FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL 1:19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 1:21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
THE HOLY FAITH WHICH MOST CHRISTIANS DON’T HAVE MEANS BUILDING YOURSELVES UP ON YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT IE PRAYING IN TONGUES WHICH UNBELIEVERS EVEN IF THE CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS CANNOT DO!
AND BECAUSE THEY ARE TOTALLY IN THE FLESH AND NOT IN THE SPIRIT THEY DEMONSTRATE THE WORKS OF THE FLESH INCLUDING HERESIES SUCH AS REJECTING THE BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT WITH THE EVIDENCE OF TONGUES THAT JESUS PROMISED FOR BELIEVERS UNDER THE NEW COVENANT AS PER ACTS 1:4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me;
1:5 “for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
1:6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
1:7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
GALATIANS 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
5:21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
SOUTHERN BAPTIST PAUL WASHER IS AN IDIOT AND SO ARE CALVINISTS! THE IDEA THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS SLEEPING DURING THE DARK AGES AND ONLY WOKE UP AFTER THE PRINTING OF THE BIBLE AND THE BEGINNING OF REFORMATION AND SOLA SCRIPTURA IS HOGWASH. GOD NEVER STOPPED HAVING ANOINTED PENTECOSTAL BELIEVERS WHO OPERATED IN THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT SUCH AS ST. PATRICK WHO STATED “The Lord hath given to me, though humble, the power of working miracles among a barbarous people, such as are not recorded to have been worked by the great Apostles; inasmuch as, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, I have raised from the dead bodies that have been buried many years; but I beseech you, let no one believe that for these or the like works I am to be at all equaled with the Apostles, or with any perfect man, since I am humble, and a sinner, and worthy only to be despised.”
Sola Scriptura is unbiblical. Nowhere does the bible teach that the bible alone is our sole authority. Rather it states JN 16:13 “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.
Many try to say 2 Tim 3:16-17 teaches it. It says that scripture is inspired and profitable. However, nowhere does it say that it is sufficient, or that it contains all inspired truth necessary to know, or that only scripture is profitable. In fact, if you try to use these verses to prove scripture is all you need, then if you look at verse 15, you will see that Paul is talking about scripture that Timothy knew since infancy, the Old Testament. You will have just proved that you do not need the New Testament because the book of Isaiah has the whole Full Gospel in it. http://olrl.org/lives/patrick.shtml
THE BIBLE IS CLEAR THOSE WHO PRACTICE THE WORKS OF THE FLESH INCLUDING DISSENSIONS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD JUST LIKE THOSE WHO PRACTICE ADULTERY, FORNICATION, IDOLATRY, SORCERY OR DRUNKENESS
FUNDAMENTALISTS AND EVANGELICALS ARE DEMAGOGUES WHO ARE DEVOID OF POWER AND ALWAYS LEARNING BUT NEVER COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH 2 TIMOTHY 3:7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith;
THE GOOD AND GREAT NEWS IS THAT GOD SHALL NEVER HEAR OR ANSWER THE PRAYERS OF FOOLS BECAUSE THEY ARE THE FALSE AND DECEIVED ONE AND NOT ME. THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE DEVOID OF POWER MIRACLES SIGNS AND WONDERS AND ALL THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT. SO UNLESS THEY REPENT THEY SHALL BE IN HELL IN JESUS NAME
