Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I'll share something with you.
It's an entry, that I wrote also back in 2011, but will share with you, now.
It's actually about Biblical issues. Here it is:
I'll just get to the point. By the way, I tend to mostly quote the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible; if you prefer another version, feel free to look up these verses.
False teachers/preachers teach a false gospel. A false Jesus can be the result. Here are some Bible verses that support what I am saying:
* 2 Peter 2:1-3, "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."
* Matthew 7:15, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
* Matthew 24:24, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
* 2 Timothy 4:2-4, "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
God has warned everyone of what will happen, if they do not adhere to what God's Word teaches. Revelation 22:18-19 tells us, "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."
Strong repercussions don't you think? Being removed from the book of life, is the worst. Without our name being written in the Lamb's book of life, we have no savation. It's been lost. Don't believe me? Here's Revelation 20:15, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
So, what should we do? For sure, we need to do what we are instructed to do, in Ephesians 6:10-18, "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;"
Thank you for reading this entry.
Hopefully, you enjoyed what I wrote years ago, and forgot to share with you. And, hopefully... you agree with what was discussed here on LwL.
Of course, I hope and pray that you will also preach the gospel, as God would have you do. If you do, I'm sure He'll bless you.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
