False teachers and prophets think of themselves as so special and bright. They “subtly introduce destructive heresies.” “By an act of human will” they make Scripture say what they damn well want it to say. And shallow thinkers follow after them.
A series of articles about the Bible.
Scripture uses farmers terms. It calls true believers “wheat”, and fake believers “tares”. A tare is a plant that grows up with wheat, but is not true wheat.
Tares are like the piglet that suckles with the kitten’s mother cat. The piglet thinks he’s a kitten because he likes the milk. But he’s only a pig, not a cat. The same is true of folk who like the idea of being blessed by Christ, but never yield to Him.
⇑ PIC: The DNA of Jesus must look similar to ours, but He is both God – and man. Jesus was born on earth – as all man, and all God – for all time. First time this has ever happened, and last time. As God, He took on the form of a man – […]
This article, A glossary of new apostolic reformation terminology, is by Rick Becker over at his site, Famine In The Land. Becker’s content is shared here with the intent to further warn the Church about false teachers. “Words” make a difference. And these terms used by NAR teachers are leading people into false teachings.
This article by Rick Becker is very spot-on. I highly agree with him: Sean Feucht – Feelings, Whispers & Omens October 20, 2020 Rick Becker & Blog By Rick Becker 20 October 2020 Here is Becker’s Introduction ONLY: “The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a movement that denies the sufficiency of scripture. It comes […]
The time it takes to go from earth to God’s presence – is instant. There is no waiting around in the next dimension for earth time to finish, no midway point of gathering, no Purgatory. It will be an instantaneous experience for all mankind that ever lived. At the moment of death, our soul instantly leaves…
The translation done by Brian Simmons, called The Passion (TPT), is not a faithful translation of the original. It is very much fraught with misleading words Simmons adds into the text (…”it is at least 50% longer than the original”). Good Christians should want to go to more accurate translations, and not ever use this […]
The Bible is like no other book. Have you read it lately? It was put together by God to communicate Himself to us. He did this through prophets separated by hundreds of miles, over the course of hundreds of years. Bible predictions are accurate.
Entering the earthly gate to deception, false teachings and rejection by God. Imagine, upon arrival to the Portals of Heaven, and there you are… personally with God Almighty who is sitting on His Throne. What will He say to you? He will speak to us all. He might even speak directly to you, you know? […]
I think. You think. We all think. But, what does God think? Thinking is necessary. But what if your “think” is not God’s “think”? Then your “think” will end so very badly when you reach That Day of Judgement, quivering before God in the realization that it is His Think that rules the heavens, not […]
Quotes about mere puny mud-men and women of clay – us.
Is it really all that important — who you are and what you believe? When it comes to God, getting born again, and what is or is not “a part of walking the walk” – does it matter? What is it, really, — getting “saved” and, following Jesus or following whatever? Does it matter? Do […]
Biblical texts about false prophets, false spirits, and their false teachings The Bible warns us about the increasing danger of false teachings creeping into our churches, of false teachers among us. Way back in Old Testament times this was a problem. See here: Deuteronomy 13:1-5 Amplified Bible (AMP) 13 “If a prophet arises among you, or […]
“…Don’t fool yourself by your limited thinking.“ – Swift’s Amped-up Paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 So, you are thinking? That’s a good thing! And those thoughts are – what? They are your thoughts? Have you been able to get past your own thinking – and think with God and His expressed thoughts? What are you […]
I am amazed by the lack of desire to know what is really true. You see this “unbeliefism” against Christian belief all over the internet. “Unbeliefism” is a created word combining “unbelief” and “ism”, meaning: an oppressive and especially discriminatory attitude or state of not believing, lack of faith, skepticism, especially in matters of religious […]
You can’t just sit and waddle in your own cultural pool – if you want to understand Jesus, because hey – Jesus was a Torah-fulfilling Jew, not you! Read the Bible from the perspective of the writers, from the context of that day – not now! Read to understand it – as it was written. […]
Source: http://www.thebereancall.org/content/heaven-real-real-exercise-discernment The critical issue for discernment is not “how it works” but “what is being communicated.” All that a Bible-believing Christian can do in ascertaining the truth of a matter is to be vigilant by “searching the Scriptures” to see if what is being presented is true to the full counsel of God’s Word […]
Eisegesis (pronounced “eye-see-jesus”) is the very poor technique of interpretation of the Bible – according to what you already believe, whereas Exegesis (pronounced “ex-see-jesus”) is the much more accurate technique of interpretation of the Bible – using only the Bible and it’s context – without “reading into it” from what you already believe. Makes sense, […]
In an emailed daily Christian devotional I receive, this week the writer quotes a Muslim poet, Rumi. I guess he is expecting his readers to be impressed by his creative thinking and inclusive philosophy. The quote is not a biblical teaching – but rather, an Islamic teaching! A human being is essentially a spirit-eye. Whatever […]
…would God give us erroneous documents and call them “His”? Get real! Is God really going to give us the ‘truth’ …that isn’t!? The fact that Jesus “the Christ” fulfilled over 360 Scriptural prophecies – convinces me of the veracity of Scripture. Look at the evidences. Forget the critics! What about you? Are you […]
