Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word Ministry
by Chico and Debbie Jimenez
STUDY TO SHEW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD
People are NOT BEING TAUGHT THAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO READ the “WORD of GOD” for themselves, IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT the “Word of GOD” says, YOU WILL BE DECEIVED!!! JESUS said in Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matthew 16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Matthew 16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
QUESTION: HOW CAN YOU COMPARE The “TRUE WORD of GOD” to “FLASE DOCTRINE”???
ANSWER: By KNOWING what “the WORD of GOD” says for YOURSELF!!! Amen!!! 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. Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee.
QUESTION: I GO TO CHURCH; I LISTEN TO THE PREACHER PREACH!!! I KNOW THE PREACHER PERSONALLY, ISN’T THAT GOING TO GET ME INTO HEAVEN???
ANSWER: NO!!! KNOWING JESUS, (NOT A PREACHER) is the ONLY WAY to HEAVEN!!! 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. NOTICE, JESUS’ own words, “no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”!!! Notice he didn’t say the ONLY WAY TO THE FATHER IS THROUGH A PREACHER or by going to a Building called the CHURCH!!! 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
GOD’S WORD SAYS in John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. Jesus said, John 10:30 I and my Father are one.
Reading these four verses tells us that, the Word IS God, the Word was made flesh, God was manifest in the flesh and JESUS said I and my Father are one.
KNOWING what these verses tell us, we would have to conclude that JESUS is the “Word of GOD” and the ONLY way, FOR US AS BELIEVERS TO KNOW HIM, WE MUST READ HIS WORD and KNOW HIM FOR OURSELVES!!! It’s SIMPLE, a relationship WITH JESUS and SURETY of YOUR ETERNAL SALVATION COMES ONLY by READING HIS WORD and BELIEVING that it IS TRUE!!! 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. John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 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. John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
THE “WORD of GOD” MAKES IT VERY CLEAR, THAT NOT ALL WILL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM of GOD!!!
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SALVATION!!! IF SOMEONE TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT; WOULD YOU CONFIRM THAT BEFORE YOU WENT OUT TO SPEND THAT MONEY??? I AM SURE YOU WOULD!!!
WELL, THEN IF A PREACHER TELLS YOU THAT YOU ARE SAVED; WOULDN’T IT BE A GOOD IDEA TO CONFIRM THAT WITH THE WORD OF GOD??? THIS IS YOUR ETERNITY THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!
THESE FEW SHORT YEARS ON THIS EARTH ARE NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO ETERNITY, WE CAN NOT EVEN FATHOM ETERNITY, BUT I AM SURE IT’S A VERY LONG TIME!!! I WOULDN’T WANT TO BASE MY ETERNITY ON ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE ASSURANCE OF THE “WORD of GOD”!!!
