On ERRING Ministries

 

Do you have a church, 
a ministry, 
or a fellowship, 
of the blind, 
leading the blind?


How JESUS hated hypocrisy!

It is not the LENGTH of existence of the ministry.

Nor the VOLUME of teachings of the ministry.

Nor the AMOUNT of members in the ministry.

Much less the MONEY collected for that ministry.

Or the PROJECTS the ministry is involved in.

Or the WORLD domination of it.


It is the CONTENT of the ministry.

What SUBSTANCE does it have?

Is it of CHRIST?

Does it have the SIMPLICITY,

of the GOSPEL of CHRIST?

Are they true to the WORD of GOD?

Or has self taken over?


That is the Holy Spirit's reproof today.

For there are many false doctrines, false Christs, false gospels, and false prophets today.

The Lord Jesus warned us of these:

Matthew 7:15

King James Version

15 Beware of false prophets

which come to you in sheep's clothing, 

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


Matthew 24:4-5

King James Version

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, 

Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, 

I am Christ; 

and shall deceive many.


Matthew 24:11

King James Version

11 And many false prophets shall rise

and shall deceive many.


Matthew 24:23-24

King James Version

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, 

Lo, here is Christ, 

or there; 

believe it not.

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.


Matthew 24:26-27

King James Version

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, 

Behold, 

he is in the desert; 

go not forth: 

behold, 

he is in the secret chambers; 

believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east,

 and shineth even unto the west; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


Matthew 15:8-9

King James Version

8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, 

and honoureth me with their lips; 

but their heart is far from me.

9 But in vain they do worship me, 

teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.


Luke 16:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.


The world is in a very precarious state today.

The day God created the fallen cherub, the latter went to work.

But God, through His Son, defeated the copy cat.

The death, burial, and resurrection of JESUS took care of all that nonsense.

The day Jesus died, He said:

John 19:28-30

King James Version

28 After this, 

Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, 

that the scripture might be fulfilled, 

saith, I thirst.

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: 

and they filled a spunge with vinegar, 

and put it upon hyssop, 

and put it to his mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, 

he said, 

It is finished

and he bowed his head, 

and gave up the ghost.


No amount of deviation, and distraction, can veer the true, born again faithful, from the simple, and loving ministry, and GOSPEL of CHRIST.

The world fails miserably.

No one can take God's throne.

We are to follow, and obey God's commandments.

Our desire must be God's will alone.

Jesus already paved the path.

We are simply to walk that path.

But first, we are to seek God with all our heart.

Jeremiah 29:13

King James Version

13 And ye shall seek me, 

and find me, 

when ye shall search for me 

with all your heart.


And everything will be added unto us.

Matthew 6:33

King James Version

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness

and all these things shall be added unto you.


Yes, it is a narrow path.

But it is the SURE path.

Back to the heart of God.


Why do I keep stressing for us to be born again?

We need to, dear readers.

For all the reasons already stated above.

It is a command from the Lord.

And for this important reason:

1 Corinthians 2:14

King James Version

14 But the natural man receiveth not 

the things of the Spirit of God

for they are foolishness unto him: 

neither can he know them, 

because they are spiritually discerned.


How do you know if you are a true born again?

Or if you've followed the RIGHT church?

Spirit will tell you more on this post.
