Come let us Grow Together: Worshippers of Self

Come let us Grow Together is a weekly series that deals with the many topical categories that exist within the Word of God. The purpose of this series is to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in things pertaining to God.

Worshipers of self are those that are worshipers of human reasoning. Those who worship their own opinions over what the Word of God teaches us. Generally using phrases that start with, “I don’t believe” or “I don’ feel” versus being obedient to the Word of God.

These people are lovers of self more than lovers of God. They depend upon human ability. Resting on their own fruitfulness of their own labors. They shove God out of the way and let their human reasoning or their own opinions take over. Thus they eliminate the need to trust in God because they “believe” or “feel” they can trust in their own self. They put their trust into their own hands, their own opinions, and their own abilities.

These worshipers of self will try to justify their actions by human reasoning. I still have money in my pocket. I still have a car to drive. I still feel God in my life. And thus they have made an idol out of their own opinions and have become worshipers of self. Then they will set themselves in the congregation of God and expect him to share with them His devotion while they cling to the idol of self.

The idol of who cares what God thinks about the affairs of my life. I’ll just use my own human reasoning to decide where I can survive spiritually and how I can survive spiritually. I’m talking about that human mentality, that human ability that says why should I pray and seek God? I’m making a good living and I trust in the works of my hands more than I trust in the hands of God. I’m talking about that attitude that says I must be alright with God or I wouldn’t have all of these good things in my life. I’m alright even though I am living in fornication. I’m alright even though I’m still living in sin. I think I’m alright because I still have a good job in spite of my sinful habit. I still have my family in spite of the sin that I let into the doors of my home. I still have fun and I’m not convicted about my carnality. I’m talking about WORSHIPERS OF SELF! I’m talking about the worship of human reasoning! I’m talking about the worship of your own opinion! I’m talking about the mentality that says I still feel God when I come to Church despite my compromised life!

I’m here to tell you that you are lovers of self more than lovers of God! You are lovers of what others have more than lovers of God!! You are lovers of what you believe more than lovers of God!! You are lovers of vanity more than lovers of God!! You are lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God!!

I’m telling you that you are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever!! I’m telling you that you are without fear of God!! Carried about of winds. What the latest fashion is. What the latest fad is. What the latest tradition of men is. Never concerning yourself with What thus saith the Word of God. Trees whose fruit withers away, sitting in the congregation of God! Claiming to be followers of God, and yet your dwelling place is in the congregation of the dead whose nigh end is burning!!

I say to you repent of this your wickedness!! I say to you repent of your idolatrous practices of worshiping your own self! Worshiping your own ideals! Worshiping what you discern to be truth versus what the Word of God teaches us! Except you repent you will die in your sins!!

What are you bowing your knee to? For they that are of such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own fleshly desires!! They are serving their own fleshly wants!! They are serving their own fleshly cravings!! And they are serving their own carnal devices!!

Serving whatever my flesh wants and serving whatever my flesh desires while finding ways in the worship of self to justify it!! It’s time to place this idol of self on the altar of sacrifice!! It’s time for a spiritual cleansing and a spiritual awakening to the acknowledging of the truth!! It’s a time of refreshing and renewing in the Holy Ghost!! For our God will abundantly pardon!! Only you must put away the idol of self!! It’s time to cast self into the Fire of the Holy Ghost!! Purge yourself therefore of CARNALITY and LUST FILLED THOUGHTS and PRACTICES and LIVE!! It’s time to DIE OUT TO THE WORSHIP OF SELF!

Laying on the altar of sacrifice!! Let me die for you Lord!! Paul said, I die daily!! WE MUST MORTIFY THE DEEDS of the FLESH and NOT fulfill the LUSTS thereof!!

But I think this is ok… But I think that is alright… That’s not the way I see it… That’s not the way I interpret it… Lovers of Self you are!! Worshipers of Self you be!! It’s time to lay yourself on the altar of repentance why it is still called today!! For you are not promised your next breath!! It is appointed unto man once to die then comes the judgment!!

Choke on the Bones and Spit out the Meat

Matthew 15:10-14
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

There are many false teachers, preachers, prophets, apostles, and pastors deceiving the flock. They write book after book after book of their corrupt and nonunderstanding of the Word of God deceiving the majority. You have likely heard the phrase just eat the meat and spit out the bones. However, these false teachers, preachers, prophets, apostles, and pastors are forever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth and they are blind leaders leading the blind. And both will fall into the ditch! Their books after books after books are more of choking on the bones and spitting out the meat! There are so many bones in their books and so full of deceit and misunderstanding of doctrine that they easily with there many words and many connections to other scriptures create false doctrines of men and deceive the majority with their words and their works of which their judgment lingers not.

2 Peter 2:1-19
1 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.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 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.
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

Making merchandise off of you with their many books upon books upon books instead of studying the Bible, subjecting themselves to a Pastor, and learning sound doctrine. These teachers are making gain off of the gospel of Jesus Christ teaching philosophies, using scriptures out of context, and using as little scripture as possible while they expound in great detail upon the couple of verses of scriptures they have chose to speak about while leading you round and around and around. Like the dog chasing his tail.

You look to them for guidance when they themselves are in need of guidance. You follow what they write and yet they don’t understand what they are speaking of in the Word of God. Making gain and teaching up a storm false doctrines and damnable heresies of which the blind masses follow whole heartily to their demise and destruction because they don’t have a love for the truth to search out what they are being taught through the scriptures to see if it is correct or not and they don’t want to spend the time submitting themselves to the authority that God has given to the overseer of the flock to seek answers of questions that should arise when false doctrines are being taught.

You are like the natural seed of Israel.

Isaiah 30:8-10
8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

Even so: Choke on the Bones and Spit out the Meat

2 Timothy 4:2-4
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 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;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2 Corinthians 3:12-15
12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

The Apostles used “great plainness of speech” that the common man could understand.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Jesus said unto them:

John 8:42-45
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
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.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

2 Timothy 2:15
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

I pray God open up their hearts and their minds to the truth that they may recover themselves from the snare of their souls the devil. That you would give them the acknowledging of the truth that is only found in Jesus Christ to the saving of their souls. That their eyes that they have closed would be opened and that their ears that were dull of hearing would hear that they might understand in their heart and that you would convert them to the truth saving their souls yet alive for the glory of God in Jesus name. Amen.

Acts 2:38-39
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

The Apostle Peter expressly tells us that it is in water baptism where we are saved!

1 Peter 3:20-21
20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

This particular passage many times is used to try to justify that baptism is nothing more than the answer of a good conscience toward God. The Apostle Peter is the very one that told us, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Here, the Apostle Peter has again stressed, that just as Noah was saved by water, we also by like figure are saved by water through baptism in Jesus name. Then stating, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh. Meaning, we aren’t getting into the water to be baptized for the flesh but for our souls. It is the answer of a good conscience toward God, because of our faith of the operation of God, which was the circumcision of Christ, the circumcision made without hands. The cutting away or washing away of our sins!!!!

Colossians 2:10-14
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

This is how you are made free from sin. You are baptized in Jesus name that the body of sin may be destroyed by the circumcision of Christ.

Jesus told us we must repent.

Luke 13:3,5
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Jesus told us we must believe and be baptized.

Mark 16:16
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Matthew 28:19
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Jesus told his disciples what to do and revealed the name to them.

Luke 24:47
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

The disciples were obedient and fulfilled both Matthew 28:19 and Luke 24:47.

Acts 2:38-39
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Colossians 3:17
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

This would include the baptism. There are many false teachings that deny that this is the only way that you can be saved as this is the only way to be born again of water and of the Spirit as Jesus instructed Nicodemus in John 3:1-7.

“… and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.” (Acts 13:48)

Appearances can be Deceiving

Matthew 23:25-28
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

The modern day Pharisees are the Christians that claim the name of Jesus Christ yet within they are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Claiming they are followers of Jesus Christ and refusing to repent of their sins, refusing to turn away from their sins, and refusing to deny themselves the partaking of the world. Their priests, teachers, and leaders make a pretense on the outside of wearing special robes, attire, and other clothing that set them apart yet within they are full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Theses blind modern day Christian Pharisees have chosen to lead their flock of blind Christian Pharisees into the ditch. Full of ungodliness and worldly lusts they cling to this world and refuse to partake of the sufferings of Christ and to cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.Beward of False Doctrine

2 Peter 2:1-3
1 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.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 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.

These false prophets and false teachers have brought in damnable heresies in regards to the teaching of the Godhead and how to be born again and truly many are following their path of ruin and loss while they speak evil of the truth. Through their extortion they deceive you with their false doctrines and teachings of men and make merchandise of you. Living off the gospel while they themselves are teaching you deceit, error, and with their merchandise they cost you your souls as you follow their path of ruin and that of the loss of your soul.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

These false apostles, prophets, and teachers of men that are making merchandise of you are following after their master for it is no marvel that “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” These ministers who have by appearances transformed themselves into ministers of righteousness who were not called to preach this gospel of Jesus Christ and even many who were called chose rather to make merchandise of you so that they could live a life of being looked up too, praised by you, and live deliciously off of you whose end shall be according to their works.

There are many false doctrinal teachings in Christendom. Do you suppose that none of these so called ministers are not as their father satan who has transformed himself into an angel of light? Do you suppose that all these ministers are truly ministers of righteousness? Then who are those that we are warned of throughout scripture that are leading their followers to a devil’s hell? Who are these that are making merchandise of you? Who are these that are teaching doctrines of devils? Who are these that are teaching false doctrines, false traditions, and teachings of men? Appearances can be deceiving but by their fruits you will know them. That is if you know the truth yourself so that you can see that their fruit is corrupt, venomous, and the ways of death. Using portions of scriptures to deceive you while refusing to teach the full truth of the doctrine of which they speak. Blind teachers leading the blind unless it be that you yourself will ask the Lord for an honest and good heart that having heard the Word you keep it, and while studying the Word God opens your understanding to it, because you have hungered for righteousness and turned away from sin while repenting. Otherwise you will remain blind to the truth of the Godhead and that of how to truly be born again.

2 Timothy 4:1-4
1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 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;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Many so called Christians have cried out to be deceived. No longer desiring to endure sound doctrine, but rather have deliberately chosen to find themselves teachers, who having itching ears desiring for them to be scratched by you, lie to you and deceive you with their false doctrines because that is what you are paying them for. Turning your ears away from the truth to follow after cunning fables and false traditions of men. Is this you? It’s time to repent of your sins and earnestly seek the Lord Jesus Christ and find out if this is you and ask Him to guide you to the truth that you might be saved.

Acts 20:28-31
28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

The Apostle Paul who himself lived with people that were trying to pervert the Christian faith of whom he rebuked throughout his teachings knew that after his death that grievous wolves would enter in not sparing the flock. Even of their own selves there would arise false apostles, false prophets, and false teachers of men speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after themselves so that they could make merchandise of you, be high and lifted up by you with praises of how great of teachers they are and how close they are to God, while you yourself have been deceived unwillingly or willingly by these wolves in sheep’s clothing who have came to devour the flock of God whose end shall be according to their works.

2 Timothy 3:1-9
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

We are told here by the Apostle Paul that in the last days dangerous times will come. Then he expounds upon this generation of people and their lifestyle while also describing that so called godly men will lead away captive silly or foolish women who are full of sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. The reason was given, they are led away with divers lusts and full of sins. These are men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof from such turn away.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Appearances can be Deceiving!

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

These are followers of the anti-christ because “they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” So “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Revelation 13:1-3
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

This is a description of the endtime world governmental system upon the earth in the time of the anti-christ’s reign. Describing to us that it is satan or the dragon that gives the anti-christ “his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Revelation 13:11-18
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

However, hope is given even in this worst of times!

Revelation 18:4-8
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Even so the Lord is calling you to “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” This is because God is referring to MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. This false Church is the mother of harlots thus she has daughters that have come out of her. Are you in one of these harlot churches who has compromised the truth? Are you in the mother church? If so it’s time to “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

C & C: Internet, TV, Full of Deception

The Full Title of this article is: C & C: Internet, T.V., and Perversion; False Doctrine, Mingled with Desensitization. Full of Deception

However, I figured the title was to long to be placed in the title bar.

Connections and Comparisons is an ongoing weekly series that deals with many scriptures in the Bible, some of which are not commonly addressed. The purpose of this series is to examine the scriptures at hand comparing what is said and looking at the connections within.

1 Thessalonians 4:1-4
1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

We as the children of the day and not of the night are to walk pleasing unto God, abounding more and more. We are to know “the will of God” and how to keep our “vessel in sanctification and honour”.

Romans 12:1-2
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

We as the children of light and not of the darkness are to present our “bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is” our “reasonable service.” Being “not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

1 Peter 1:13-17
13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

We as the children of that just one and not of that wicked one are to “gird up the loins of your mind, be sober”, “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance”, “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” We are to “pass the time of” our “sojourning here in fear”.

Psalms 101:3
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

Is the internet in and of itself evil? “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes”. If it is then none of us should be on it. However, the internet is full of both wicked places as well as places that are not wicked. The internet is full of places that you could be tempted to do evil instead of good. However you could be tempted to do evil in your mind at all waking moments of your life. Do you then disconnect your mind to a vegetative state? Even so, we are in the world but not of the world. For the world loves it’s own.

For one person may need to stop using the internet because they are unable to “possess his vessel in sanctification and honour” while another person is able to keep themselves. However, if we eliminate the internet is our computer wicked in and of itself? The answer is no. However, it could be used as wickedness under temptations depending on what software you install on it even without an internet connection. Is the software you install on your computer wicked? It depends on what program you installed. However, most software is not evil but that doesn’t mean that you can’t use it for wicked devices depending upon how you are using the software you installed. So then, is placing a computer before your eyes wicked? Or the smart phone you are using is it wicked? If it is then none of us should be using it. For “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes”. Is your smart phone not a computer? Is it then wicked because of it’s software installed upon it?

What about T.V.? Is owning a T.V. placing a “wicked thing before” your “eyes”? What if you use it for a monitor and do not have cable connected to it by any means? What if you call your monitor that you are using a T.V. even though you do not have any cable connected to it by any means? Virtually everything on cable is full of uncleanness, perversion, indoctrination, propaganda, and is mingled with desensitization. Therefore is wicked. However, if you do not have cable connected to your T.V. and are using it as a monitor, and own a DVD player or VCR player, is the DVD player or VCR player wicked? Or does it come down to what you allow yourself to watch through these devices? What if every movie or T.V. show is rated G? I have seen several rated G shows that have used filthy language in it and turned them off. If you say I don’t watch any T.V. shows what about “The Andy Griffith show” or dozens of other like examples. Are you sure your not watching any T.V. shows? Or did it suddenly no longer become a television show just because you don’t have any cable connected to it by any means and are using a DVD player, VHS player, or other platforms on the internet such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.? Is Netflix and other paid subscriptions for watching movies, shows that were on cable, and shows that are created by your paid subscriber wicked in and of itself? If it is then none of us should be using it or any other sites that have such movies and older cable television shows such as Youtube. Is Youtube wicked in and of itself? Or does it depend on what you view on Youtube?

What about books? Are books evil in and of themselves? For “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes”. What if you are reading Christian authors? Does it not depend on what is in the content of their books as well as what kind of language they are using? Even though they claimed to be Christian authors?

What about the radio in your car? Is it evil in and of itself? What about talk shows? Does it depend only on what radio station you are tuned into? What about the content of the songs playing or the content of the talk shows? What about the commercial breaks or the radio DJ? “be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.

What about the news? Is the news evil in and of itself? Doesn’t many news articles contain unsavory content and foul language? Do not the news reporters use profanities at times? Is it ok to listen to certain talk shows that one day nothing unclean is said but the next day they curse multiple times? “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thess 5:21-22) Are we not to watch, read, or listen to the news? Or do we just have to use good judgment about the news sources we are gathering our news from.

Yea, hath God said, in six days I have made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day? Thus enters false sciences so called. It was the Big Bang Theory, Evolution, Gap Theory, Theistic Evolution, Pre-Adamic world, Luciferian flood, or it is an unknown amount of time that Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden before the fall of mankind into sin, or there were other people God created outside the Garden of Eden populating the world and Adam and Eve after sinning came out had their children who then married or just procreated with them?

Exodus 20:11
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

How long were Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden? Genesis 5:5 tells us, “And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.” We also know that God began keeping track of time in the creation account when he used the phrase “And the evening and the morning were the first day” etc. We were also told that Adam was 130 years old when Seth was born. “And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:” (Gen 5:3) This lets us know without any uncertainty that Adam and Eve could not have been in the Garden of Eden for any longer than 130 years. Which years are reduced even further since Adam was 130 years old when he had Seth, and Cain and Able were born before this time. It also only stands to reason that Adam and Eve must also have had daughters. We are not given the ages of Cain and Able but only told that “Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground”, (Gen 4:2) that both had enough understanding to make “an offering unto the LORD”, (Gen 4:3) and that Cain was old enough to murder his brother with malice. (Gen 4:6-10)

So when we read “And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch (Gen 4:16-17) we must first take notice that it only says here that Cain went to the land of Nod and knew his wife. It doesn’t say that Cain found his wife there, just that he knew her there. So there is no evidence that Cain found this woman in Nod but rather most likely took her with him to the land of Nod. Who was this woman he took to the land of Nod? One of his sisters. “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” (Gen 3:20) If you try to theorize that there were other people outside of the Garden of Eden then these people could not have had souls since Eve was “the mother of all living.” Therefore it is false doctrines of men and apostates that listen to satan who is saying, Yea, hath God said, in six days I have made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day? It was the Big Bang Theory, Evolution, Gap Theory, Theistic Evolution, Pre-Adamic world, Luciferian flood, or it is an unknown amount of time that Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden before the fall of mankind into sin, or there were other people God created outside the Garden of Eden populating the world and Adam and Eve after sinning came out had their children who then married or just procreated with them?

Beward of False Doctrine

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Gal 1:8-9)

I would like to speak to everyone concerning a grave false doctrine that abounds. This false doctrine is teaching people that the name of Jesus in the New Testament is not the correct name of the Messiah. They insist that the name of God, which is YHWH, should have been used.

These teachers will show you that in the Old Testament when speaking of YHWH that due to Jews believing that the name of God was either to Holy to say or was afraid of blaspheming the name of God they instead substituted replacement names such as LORD when speaking of the name of God. These teachers also teach that the New Testament is the inspired word of God and is accurate in all it’s teachings, but that the name of God was replaced to Jesus and thus not the name of God. They are also teaching that the name of Jesus is of pagan origin.

Let us address this teaching.

According to what they are teaching they believe that the name of Jesus is pagan. The scriptures teach us that the Holy Ghost was sent from the Father in the name of Jesus. We also know from the Old Testament that our God is a jealous God and will not share his glory with another.

So in essence what they are teaching is that God will fill a believer with the Holy Ghost in a false pagan name that is not his own. They are also teaching that God will remit the sins of a believer in a false pagan name or any other name since the believer is sincere. This teaching goes against both the Old and New Testament and is thereby false. This would be saying that our God who’s name is Jealous would be sharing his glory with a false pagan name and filling believers with His Spirit in that name and remitting their sins in that name. (See Jn 14:26, Ex 34:14, Is 42:8)

I also wanted to point out that the name of Jesus and Joshua are the same name. One translated from Hebrew to English and the other translated from Greek to English and therefore the spelling of the name changed due to differences in alphabets.

Moses renamed Oshea the Son of Nun to Jehoshua which was contracted to Joshua or Jeshua. According to this false teaching that we are addressing they would be claiming that Moses renamed Oshea the Son of Nun to a pagan name.

These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua. (Num 13:16)

Also see Exo 33:11 and Neh 8:17 where the name of Jehoshua was contracted to either Joshua or Jeshua.

These false teachers also take great effort to point out that before the letter J was used in our English language that Jesus appeared as Iesus and then claim that the name of Jesus is only around 245 years old. This trying to prove to us that the name of God has changed and since the name of God is everlasting that this could not be.

This is a failure to recognize that all languages undergo various changes of pronunciations and also possible changes in spelling due to new pronunciations of words. This also fails to recognize that the name of Jesus is the name that God chose to reveal to us in the New Testament. The name of Jesus meaning Jehovah Savior or Jehovah is Salvation. Let me also point out that these false teachers claim that the name of Jehovah is a mistranslation of God’s name.

Let us not forget:

“And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. (Ex 6:3)

Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. (Matt 12:18-21)

How could the gentiles trust in the name of Jesus if the name of Jesus was not His name? Would God fill you with His Spirit in a name that was not His own? Would God remit your sins in a false name that was not His own? The answer is no. If we say that He would, then we make God a liar. For our God is a jealous God and will not share His glory with another.

Beware of False Doctrines!!
