A Reminder

Well Believe the gospel of course but most will know what I mean by this meme......One thing too, I do not consider myself a "super-uber" Christian for seeing through the church system and leaving it. There's many others who have made the same decision. I had time to research and study and I am responsible for what I know and have been shown. I wish people took time to research things, many do not. A spiritual malaise and laziness leaves many being led by their nose in a series of religious systems. The difference that matters is a love for truth.

2 Thess:2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

This is so important as you pointed out BB - to test all things. This is the problem we have today, keeping our eyes closed. It is not just a problem but apostasy here at our door. Jesus has already justified His bride at the cross but His bride is following voices that have hidden agendas. The sheep are looking for green pastures in fields of dung which they are happy to frolic in. Jesus tests our faith to see whether we have undivided hearts and are wholly devoted to Him. Those that are divided will have to be purified and refined if they are true believers.

What do impostors do...they deceive. Merriam Webster definition: Imposter one that assumes false identity or title for the purpose of deception.

I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

I Thessalonians 5:20-21 Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

John 8:42 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

John 8:44-45 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

John 10:1-5 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

Agree. It has been said "People only see what they want to see", meaning if your not looking for truth you will not find it. - Don

Hi BB,

You are so right. We as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have to know the word of God and we have no excuse whatsoever. And that is why Paul the apostle was truly encouraged by the men of Berea for they went back to the scriptures to prove what had been taught to them (Acts 17:11). Paul also encourages Timothy:

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."

Since I started "testing the spirit" by cross checking all that was taught from the pulpit, I have realized that not all that is taught from therein is truth. There is a lot of mixing and I have resorted to reading the word of God. And I have proved as read from the "Beginning and End" blog that scripture interprets itself.

Knowledge, wisdom and understanding are all derived from the word of God (Psalm 19 and 119).

So much to say but too little time. Long story short... the word of God is life (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4, John 17:17).

God bless!

Do you know what is interesting? All of these societies that have been established by man are suppose to be secret. Secret meetings, secret handshakes, secret plots; all to cover up darkness and evil. It's like everyone wants to belong to the popular group in high school except all diabolical. With Christians Jesus said they would know us by our love for one another. John 13:35 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

The world with all these secret clubs know each other only by handshakes, hand signs and arm movements. It has nothing to do with God's love or love for one another but rather it is direct rebellion against God. It has gone beyond greed, depravity is running rampant in minds that have no conscience.
2 Kings 17:9 And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the Lord their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.

Thank-you for this admonition of encouragement, Bible Believer. The Scripture you posted is perfect for today.

Colossians 1:4-6 4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

When we look at truth, it is Good News. All other teachings are false when it is not God's truth. It is a horrid thing to hear a message that does not point to unmerited salvation through the blood of Christ. It is an abhorrent thing to have your ears tickled and heart deceived by dubious wolves who cherish the destruction of HIS bride.

All other teachings do not bring fruit but more ashes upon the soul from hell.

How many religions out there do not pave the way for salvation. They lead them away from the grace that God has for them. People try to crucify their own flesh by all sorts of rituals to appease their concept of God. If their duties do not add up to suffice an organization, they are considered the black sheep of the bunch. The sweat of their brow has to drip constantly in order to achieve a possible entrance to heaven. It is all done in the flesh which can never please God. Why is it so hard for them to understand that Jesus paid for their sins on the cross? We have been made righteous in His sight.

Colossians 2:10-14 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

I agree test all things. There's a lot of fake voices and they have the churches by the throat. So much in the churches and elsewhere doesn't match the bible. Many do love the dung ffields. Some don't know better or are on the way out but somethings you know they have embraced throwing away all discernment. So many imposters, thanks for the applicable scriptures.

Don you are right, people want the easiest way too. They don't want to take the time to question, they let others do their thinking for them. I do realize one strong thing that keeps people in the false herd is to have a sense of belonging. Many just inherit the church or cult their parents were in and stay in for family connections.

John 8:30

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free

I always have loved the verse 2 Timothy 2:15, Christians do need to study and learn, those not interesting in knowing or loving the truth are spiritually in trouble. It's too hard to sit and listen to those in the pulpit who directly preach against the Word of God and even promote evil. My feelings of nausea over the church I left when they praised the neo-con wars remains. There was one nice lady in that church, who I still run into, she has a kind heart, but I fear for the spiritual effects of her listening to that preaching.

Having the "right beliefs" nowadays will mean one will rise up in business and other places. People are 'conforming' even for success. I get myself in weird conversations and found myself telling a New Ager God does have a personality and is not just an energy. This particular person seemed a seeker at least which seems rarer and rarer today. So yeah it is like the popular group. The secret societies are intertwined into society far greater then people realize and even lower levels giving each other jobs and opportunities. I have a question if anyone can answer from their past, does someone in Demolay need a family connection to come in?

Yes scripture warns against secretiveness. Most of the wicked are very secretive and have a lot of secrets even to deceive others and get power and control.

Agree about the false teachings bringing the ashes of hell, and so many of them too, twists and turns all over.

I've seen the work their way to heaven crowd. Nothing is ever good enough. They work themselves to the bone, many are angry too and if you do not work or conform they are not your friend. Often financial and other resources make the work more possible, they often are demanding sorts. There is pride in people who think they can save themselves and via rituals instead of depending on the work of Jesus Christ.

15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Don the world gets weirder....notice they admit secret societies exist now, Trumps weird Apollo living room disproves that one. I may post it to show how absurd things have gotten.
