False Teachers, Are Creeping into the Body of BELIEVERS, Trying to DECEIVE the Children of God, Mixing the Old and New Covenant
God’s Word has no language barriers or boundaries, but the “Truth” of God’s Word only comes through the “Revelation of the Holy Spirit”!! JESUS warned us about false teachers and false profits, until recently I had no idea that also included in those warnings were those teaching from the BIBLE without the HOLY SPIRIT!! My husband has been reading the Bible since 1965 and has been “Spirit Filled” since 1987, unfortunately for me the same is not true, I was only 4 years old when he started reading the Bible, however when I was old enough to read, I had Bible studies with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, I also was going to a Baptist Church, talk about confused….it was crazy, on Sundays I heard of HELL FIRE and Damnation, during the week, I was taught that HELL is the GRAVE!! How confusing?? 1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. So from an early age I was very confused by “Doctrine”!! The Bible clearly states that God is not the AUTHOR of CONFUSION, the devil is. Condemnation was my way of life for 49 years!! Period!! However, when I met my husband, he shared the Gospel with me; do you know what Gospel means??
“Gospel” definition from the Strong’s Concordance
1) to bring good news, to announce glad tidings
a) used in the OT of any kind of good news
1) of the joyful tidings of God’s kindness, in particular, of the Messianic blessings
b) in the NT used especially of the glad tidings of the coming kingdom of God, and of the salvation to be obtained in it through Christ, and of what relates to this salvation
c) glad tidings are brought to one, one has glad tidings proclaimed to him
d) to proclaim glad tidings
1) instruct (men) concerning the things that pertain to Christian salvation
Now, understanding what the word “Gospel” means, what does that have to do with condemnation?
“Condemnation” definition from the Strong’s Concordance
1) a separating, sundering, separation
a) a trial, contest
a) opinion or decision given concerning anything
1) esp. concerning justice and injustice, right or wrong
b) sentence of condemnation, damnatory judgment, condemnation and punishment
4) the college of judges (a tribunal of seven men in the several cities of Palestine; as distinguished from the Sanhedrin, which had its seat at Jerusalem)
5) right, justice
The two words and their meanings are Polar Opposites!!
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. JESUS makes it very clear that HE is the Light of the World and that the only condemnation is if ONE DOES NOT BELIEVE on HIM (JESUS). John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
SO, the Modern Day Pharisees think that they need to “CONDEMN” people for divorcing and remarrying, I am happy to tell them, THEY ARE WRONG!! Who CONDEMNED JESUS?? The PHARISEES!! Who is trying to put people in Modern Day Condemnation?? The Modern Day Pharisees, the false teachers WHO WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for their actions. The Pharisees were spiritually blinded and so are the Modern Day Pharisees, they simply CAN NOT Discern the “Word of God”!! 1Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.1 Corinthians 2:14 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. 1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
So here is the BIGGIE, JESUS DID NOT condemn the woman taken in adultery. Why??
John 8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. John 8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.John 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, John 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
John 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?John 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. John 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
John 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. John 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
JESUS didn’t condemn her, because she BELIEVED on HIM, the Pharisees remained SINNERS because they HAD BEEN BLINDED and Could Not SPIRITUALLY See the TRUTH!! JESUS is the “TRUTH”!! John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
SO I say to you Modern Day Pharisees:John 8:44 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. 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Look in the Mirror, you Modern Day Pharisees, these scriptures are for you!! Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Yes, Jesus was talking to the Pharisees DIRECTLY!!
For me I Know, Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
We pray that you receive the Holy Spirit and receive discernment to rightly divide the “Word of God”!!
