The ignorance of man, and their worldly knowledge...
The ignorance of man, and their worldly knowledge!
It appears that every time that I enquire anything pertaining to the word of God with the so called scholars, teachers, and philosophers of the Holy word of God: they all scrutinize the entire word of God with their malicious involvement of worldly knowledge! Meaning that, and according to them; when you read a certain passage that contains a word; a specific word it may have the meaning of different notations: that what you are reading does not really mean what you are reading, but that it is telling you something else and not the exact thing.
This to me is a deliberate way of adding to what God has simplified for all to fully understand in the easiest literal way and form. Upon adding to it they easily take from it so that they can understand it better in accordance to the knowledge of this world: its all blasphemy! Instead of leaving it the way it is; they will automatically resort to their own studies of general education in the form of grammatical literature. This to me is another form of deceiving the human mind, the weak at heart [a malicious distortion of ones reasoning, and understanding].
This is what has been prophesied throughout the entire word of God: concerning false teachers that have erupted and will always erupt only to distort the true meaning of God’s Holy word. They formulize different ways; different ideas to show the people who lack the understanding of God‘s word; just to have them understand their private interpretation of God’s word. It’s a showmanship of the lost to create an understanding that only the people of this world can comprehend: falsified knowledge, and a misconception of God’s true meaning.
They are of this world, and they are there for the people of this world as this was stated by the Apostle John in his first epistle (1Jo.4:5) They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them. Glory be to our Heavenly Father who has given to some the true understanding, and giving us the privilege, and the right of belonging to Him(1Jo.4:6)We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
In fact our Lord Jesus Christ forewarned his Apostles and disciples concerning false prophets [false teachers] (Matt.7:15)Beware of false prophets, which come unto you in sheep clothing, but in-wardly they are ravening wolves. That is why it is very important to study the word of God, so, that they as well as we will never be deceived by any false teachers; but lets not fool ourselves in this because it has been foretold that even the very elect can fall just as easy! (Mk.13:22-23)For false Christ’s and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold I have foretold you all things.
This next passage is what our Lord spoke of: one of many woes, and this was prophesied through the lips of (Ezekiel22:27)Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. And through the lips of the Prophet (Zephaniah3:4)Her prophets are light and treacherous persons; her priest have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law. In fact, their corruption has gone way off, their distortion has veered away of the fine line of the straight path that is but narrow (Eze.22:26)Her priest have violated my law, and have profaned mine Holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and the profane [common], neither have they showed difference [cause man to discern] between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. This is even very noticeable to this day as there are multiple religions, denomination, congregations; which are treacherously false teachers of the dark side of man, and have made it almost impossible to comprehend all of what is really going on in this vile world of perversion.
Unfortunately, things began to go wrong with man [the priests] of yesteryear; they began to do things in accordance to their own will by not abiding to the word of God (Mal.2:7-8)For the priests lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is a messenger of the Lord of hosts. But ye departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, said the Lord of hosts. Evidently, this the same mentality that satan had against God; when he wanted to be as superior as God: so, he therefore introduced it to the priest of those years or rather to man for the corruption of God‘s Holy word. In which they are all called false prophets and teachers, and eventually began to create a mass creation of the many forms of religions and beliefs.
One of the areas that we need to look for in those false teachers, or ministers; is if they are very well spoken of, and should be, and are considered the manipulators of the world, deceivers of mankind.
This is what our Lord and Savior spoke on this behalf; concerning them (Luke6:26)Woe unto you, when men shall speak well of you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets. And, reason being is that they are of this world, and the world hears them; but our consolation is that we are not of this world because the world hates us: as this was stated by our Lord Jesus Christ to all those who heard him during his ministry (Jo.15:19)If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
The sickening idea of just how corrupt these persons are; can really get to the best of those who are called God’s true children, defenders of the faith, defenders of the word of God. In any case, that is the only and main reason why there exists all these form of false doctrines created by false teachers: who are to be considered the puppets of satan himself. Boldly and with great emphasis this was very well proclaimed by our Lord Jesus Christ in his rebukes towards, and against the Jews [scribes, Pharisees, elders, and teachers of Israel] (Jo.8:23)and he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world I am not of this world.
Here is wisdom that was sent by the Holy Spirit of God: to those that were chosen by Christ [God]; as they were brought to remembrance of God’s wisdom “He who has ears to hear let him hear what the Holy Spirit has spoken” (Jo.3:31)He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthy, and speaks of the earth: he that comes from Heaven is above all. This alone speaks very loud of all its true essence of what is God’s Holy wisdom, knowledge, His infinite glory, and our privileged providence too look with awe.
For those of us who do know the warnings we can not make any excuse for ourselves, or look for any scapegoat of not being warned; because if anyone truly has read the word of God; we would have found numerous passages of warnings against everything that is false, and everything that is against God and His glorious word. For instance: The Apostle Peter spoke to all Christians in general of the concerns of false teachers: that if they, as well as we, are not careful can and will be punished (2Pe.2:1-9). The Holy Spirit spoke through the Apostle Paul of this in the book of Acts: that even within the brotherhood some shall rise to distort the truth (Acts20:29-31)For I know this, that after my departure shall grievous wolves enter among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn you everyone night and day with tears. As an example Paul told Timothy of what happens to those who do in fact blaspheme or speak against, wrongfully, or distort the word of God (1Ti.1:20)Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto satan, that they learn not to blaspheme.
As an extreme warning the Apostle Paul with the assistance of God’s Holy Spirit forewarns Timothy what to expect in time of perils, in times of heresies, in time of corruptions: that some of those who were chosen will eventually fall to the seducing spirits [false teachers under the helm of satans disciples] by way of false doctrine (1Ti.4:1-2)Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies of hypocrisy [through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies]; having their conscience seared [branded by their own conscience] with a hot iron. As we know what is meant that the Spirit spoke expressly; would be what should be known by the true worshippers of God: that the spirit was too come to the twelve with power and fill them up with the truth and the whole truth, and not lies and deception as does the falsified doctrine that is of this worldly knowledge.
This was spoken to the Apostles by our Lord Jesus Christ when he was speaking of his departure from them , and yet, he was not going to leave them alone (Jo16:13)Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you unto all truth [the truth]: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
Apart from being called false teachers and false prophets they are called and considered many other names; yet this is only found in the word of God and not from the knowledge of this perverted world: for example we have the word scoffers which is found in the book of (2Pe.3:3)knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts. (2Pe.2:10)but chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Warnings of, and foretelling of the wickedness of the last days (2Ti.3:1)This know also, that in the last days perilous [grievous] times shall come. (Jude18-19)How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
Have the perilous times already begun; because of all the filth that is out in the world these days? Who can deny this considering the technologies that exists in this vile world. I am speaking with the technologies starting with the invention of the press printer to today’s e-books. It’s a sure way of reaching people in whatever way possible to fill up their heads with trash that is formulated by man, and the evil that has been around since the beginning of time: the serpent on the tree. I can relate with the notion that it will eventually get worse towards the end of time that awaits everyone of this corrupted world: this was prophesied in the book of (Rev.9:20)And the rest of the men which were not killed by the plagues yet repented not the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk. (Rev16:14)For they are the spirit of devils, working miracles [signs], which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
For now, we have the necessary tool to be prepared us for what is ahead, but in all reality what is today, tomorrow, and the future time for that matter “the Holy word of God”, is the only way we can prepare for what is the destiny of what is now. So, we are therefore commanded to never trust any spirit that lingers out there in this self destructing world and its inhabitants (1Jo.4:1)Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirit whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Another thing that we are to prepare for is the anti-christ of the last times as well as all the anti-christs that are every where in this world. To fully understand what is meant by anti-christ we figure that all who are in contrary to the will of God and fix up a formulation of their own beliefs to get dishonest gain is the anti-christ. This is what the Apostle John in his first epistle wrote concerning the anti-christ (1Jo.2:18)Little children, it is the last time [hour] and as ye have heard that anti-christ shall come, even now are there many anti-christ; whereby we know that it is the last time.
Basically, we need to be very much aware of what all is written in the word of God in the concerns of what can and will destroy anyone’s salvation in the form of being deceived by the deceivers of this world with the help of their father the devil. From this point I will supply all the necessary passages to familiarize ourselves with what we need to know; and if the good Lord allow we will never be deceived by no man: (Matt.24:4,5,24) (Jer.29:8-9)(Eph.5:6) (Col.2:8,18) (Jer.14:14;23:21,25) (Jo5:43) (Mk.13:22) (2Th.2:9-11) (Rev.13:13); these are perhaps only a few that I have found that pertains to the lesson that is at hand; in which evolves around the word false: false teachers, false prophets, false doctrines, and last the anti-christ.
To end this lesson lets consider one main hope that we have as children of the living God. It is the foundation of the Lord is sure, solid as a rock, and can never be moved, but by God Himself (2Ti.2:19)Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this seal, The Lord knows them that are his. And, let every one that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity [unrighteousness]. This name is what is “a name that needs to be reckon with“: that can save anyone from the darkness of this world and from the ignorance of man and their worldly knowledge created by false teachers (Eph.1:21)Far above all principality [rule], and power [authority], and might [power], and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. (Phil.2:9)wherefore God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. (Acts4:12)Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Our consolation is knowing that our Heavenly Father is always there for His children (Na.1:7)The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in Him. All in all lets not dread on anything that is of this world because of the hatred that will arise against the children of God (1Jo3:13)Marvel not, my brothers, if the world hates you. The hatred come s from satan himself; because he does not want us to be saved and worship God, but rather wants us all too suffer as he is, will suffer for eternity.
The ignorance of man, and their worldly knowledge is temporal never really abiding to anything but self destruction. The wisdom, knowledge of God is forever always abiding in the love of God has for His children: everything that is of God is infinity and never fails.
