The UPROOTING of FALSE doctrine

 

JESUS declared:

Matthew 13:41

King James Version

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, 

and they shall gather out of his kingdom 

all things that offend, 

and them which do iniquity;


Is the doctrine you're being taught, the TRUE DOCTRINE of GOD?

How can one know?

JESUS has the answer.

For the LORD prophesied:

Matthew 15:13

King James Version

13 But he answered and said, 

Every plant, 

which my heavenly Father hath not planted, 

shall be rooted up.


It gives us believers great comfort, for apostle Paul did warn:.

1 Timothy 4:1

King James Version

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, 

that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, 

giving heed to seducing spirits, 

and doctrines of devils;


Further,

2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 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.


JESUS also warned us of forthcoming false Christs, and prophets.

Matthew 24:24

King James Version

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.


If the very elect can be deceived, what about every day believers?

Where shall we get our help from?

As false gospels, teachers, and prophets abound, how can we discern God's TRUE DOCTRINE?

Again, JESUS saw to that.

He left us a Comforter.

The HOLY SPIRIT.

John 16:13-14

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, 

is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.


The HOLY SPIRIT will help us remember EVERYTHING JESUS told us.

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


He will testify of the LORD.

John 15:26

King James Version

26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, 

which proceedeth from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:


He will reprove the world of sin.

John 16:8-11

King James Version

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:

9 Of sin, 

because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, 

because I go to my Father, 

and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, 

because the prince of this world is judged.


The prince of the world never really stood a chance.

Much as he continues to deceive us, and distort the gospel.

We have steady help from the LORD.

SPIRIT is our TEACHER, for ALL THINGS CHRIST.

We will be able to discern God's TRUTH, through Spirit.

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.


We will be guided on GOD's LAWS.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

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, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


As born again, and as believer, we will have a STRONG, and SURE foundation.

We will be SEALED with GOD's SPIRIT.

2 Timothy 2:19

King James Version

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, 

having this seal, 

The Lord knoweth them that are his

And, 

let every one that nameth the name of Christ 

depart from iniquity.

My DELIGHT in SERVING the LORD

 

Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.


I have been writing for JESUS, nearly 24 months now.

That's two years of writing NON-STOP.

And that's two years of you reading my work from SPIRIT.

So, I THANK you, from my heart!

Thank you for your love.

For your patience.

For your desire to know.

I do not know who you are.

Where you live.

SPIRIT takes care of the prompts.

And the delivery.

I do not track you.

I do not chart you.

I am merely to write each day.

Whatever the LORD JESUS wants done, said, delivered.

In EXACTLY the THEME, TONE, TENOR, and TEMPO the LORD wants.

For I am glued, permanently, to His heartbeat.

I'm a barnacle the LORD won't be able to get rid of.

I'm not a spy.

I'm a believer.

You see, that's the spirit I have with JESUS.

We are serious, and yet playful.

He knows my heart, to the CORE.

But there's always LOVE, and RESPECT, for the LORD.

And yes, those tiny ears of mine, are glued permanently to THAT heart.

And my hand, in His.


The SPIRIT of GOD keeps me going.

As such, I never run out of material.

I may need several lifetimes to tell you about the never-ending TREASURES of God's WORD.

As I uncover one, another gets uncovered, another hovers by.

Everywhere in my room is riddled with notes, lest I miss a PRECIOUS thing from GOD.

I did joke that if an autopsy were to be conducted on me one day, my veins, my blood, my bone, all the vital organs -- every fiber of my being -- would have GOD's WORD imprinted on it.

And PERMANENTLY engraved upon my heart.

Jeremiah 31:33

King James Version

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make 

with the house of Israel

After those days, 

saith the Lord, 

I will put my law in their inward parts, 

and write it in their hearts; 

and will be their God, 

and they shall be my people.


The human me wouldn't exist.

I'll only be filled with HIS SPIRIT.

His WORD is my OXYGEN.

By His GRACE, I am able to do what I do.

The daily writing, and all.


When SPIRIT wants something written, He gives prompts, ideas, verses, even dreams.

I never act, unless, and until, I'm "activated" by Spirit.

Mostly, I PRAY to JESUS, and ask:

"What is YOUR will?"

"What would YOU have me do?"

"What do YOU want done?"

"What do YOU want said?"

"What do YOU want me to tell people?"


So, I take it a day at a time, waiting for SPIRIT to tell me what JESUS wants written.

And, most days, EVERYTHING wants to be written, ha ha.

It is a JOY to SERVE the LORD.

It is voluntary work, which I enjoy immensely.

I do not ask for anything, EXCEPT that I DELIVER God's Word ACCURATELY.

I will be broken-hearted if I fail, misinterpret, or mislead.

I cannot bear that.


So, for nearly two years, I've been faithfully following SPIRIT's prompt to:

SHARE Scripture.

TELL you of GOD's magnificence.

URGE you to seek GOD.

URGE you to love GOD.

URGE you to thank GOD.

URGE you to become BORN AGAIN.

REMIND you of the BLOOD of the LAMB.

URGE you to believe in JESUS.

URGE you to believe His GOSPEL.

URGE you to focus on JESUS.

URGE you to look into your sin.

URGE you to REPENT.

URGE you to look to the RAPTURE.

URGE you to be vigilant.

URGE you to care for each other.

URGE you to PRAY, to know God's will.

URGE you to obey GOD's WILL.

URGE you to listen to the HOLY SPIRIT.

URGE you to become HOLY.


I am not here to convert you.

God does that.

I'm only here to write about GOD's TRUTH, the ASTOUNDING TEACHINGS of the HOLY SPIRIT, the POWER of SCRIPTURE, the PERFECTION of JESUS, the imminence of the RAPTURE, and the WAY that JESUS showed us, so we may have ETERNAL LIFE with JESUS.

I am not here, to cement a relationship with you.

When GOD's WORD is firmly imprinted upon your heart, this will happen to all, with GOD becoming an INTEGRAL part of your BEING:

Jeremiah 31:34

King James Version

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour

and every man his brother, 

saying, 

Know the Lord: 

for they shall all know me, 

from the least of them unto the greatest of them

saith the Lord: 

for I will forgive their iniquity, 

and I will remember their sin no more.


Why the URGENCY to tell you all these things?

Ezekiel 18:30-32

King James Version

30 Therefore I will judge you, 

O house of Israel, 

every one according to his ways,

saith the Lord God. 

Repent, 

and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; 

so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, 

whereby ye have transgressed; 

and make you a new heart and a new spirit: 

for why will ye die

O house of Israel?

32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth

saith the Lord God: 

wherefore turn yourselves, 

and live ye.


Lastly, I URGE you to RELY upon:

GOD for grace

JESUS for healing, and

SPIRIT for teaching.

GOD SANCTIFIES His HOLY NAME

 

Ezekiel 36:23

King James Version

23 And I will sanctify my great name, 

which was profaned among the heathen, 

which ye have profaned in the midst of them; 

and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, 

saith the Lord God, 

when I shall be sanctified in you 

before their eyes.


If you have no idea God's mercy, you will here.

God made these declarations to Ezekiel, about 500 years before JESUS was born.

These verses remain relevant, for man continues to profane God's HOLY NAME.

And God continues to have mercy.

Only by GOD's GRACE are we not all consumed by His wrath -- yet.

But why push it?

We are to take heed now.

For GOD's WILL be DONE.

Ezekiel 36:16-38

King James Version

16 Moreover the word of the Lord 

came unto me, 

saying,

17 Son of man, 

when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, 

they defiled it by their own way 

and by their doings: 

their way was before me 

as the uncleanness of a removed woman.

18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them 

for the blood that they had shed upon the land

and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:

19 And I scattered them among the heathen

and they were dispersed through the countries: 

according to their way 

and according to their doings I judged them.

20 And when they entered unto the heathen, 

whither they went, 

they profaned my holy name, 

when they said to them, 

These are the people of the Lord, 

and are gone forth out of his land.

21 But I had pity for mine holy name, 

which the house of Israel had profaned 

among the heathen, 

whither they went.

22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel

thus saith the Lord God; 

I do not this for your sakes, 

O house of Israel, 

but for mine holy name's sake

which ye have profaned among the heathen, 

whither ye went.

23 And I will sanctify my great name, 

which was profaned among the heathen, 

which ye have profaned in the midst of them; 

and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord

saith the Lord God, 

when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

24 For I will take you from among the heathen, 

and gather you out of all countries, 

and will bring you into your own land.

25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you

and ye shall be clean: 

from all your filthiness, 

and from all your idols, 

will I cleanse you.

26 A new heart also will I give you, 

and a new spirit will I put within you

and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,

and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, 

and cause you to walk in my statutes

and ye shall keep my judgments, 

and do them.

28 And ye shall dwell in the land 

that I gave to your fathers; 

and ye shall be my people, 

and I will be your God.

29 I will also save you 

from all your uncleannesses

and I will call for the corn, 

and will increase it, 

and lay no famine upon you.

30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, 

and the increase of the field, 

that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine 

among the heathen.

31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways

and your doings that were not good, 

and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight 

for your iniquities and for your abominations.

32 Not for your sakes do I this

saith the Lord God, 

be it known unto you: 

be ashamed and confounded 

for your own ways, 

O house of Israel.

33 Thus saith the Lord God; 

In the day that I shall have cleansed you 

from all your iniquities 

I will also cause you to dwell in the cities

and the wastes shall be builded.

34 And the desolate land shall be tilled

whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.

35 And they shall say, 

This land that was desolate 

is become like the garden of Eden

and the waste and desolate and ruined cities 

are become fenced, 

and are inhabited.

36 Then the heathen that are left round about you 

shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, 

and plant that that was desolate: 

I the Lord have spoken it, 

and I will do it.

37 Thus saith the Lord God; 

I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, 

to do it for them; 

I will increase them with men like a flock.

38 As the holy flock, 

as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts

so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: 

and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Blame no one

 


What is true for Israel, is true for the world:

Hosea 4:1

King James Version

4 Hear the word of the Lord, 

ye children of Israel: 

for the Lord hath a controversy 

with the inhabitants of the land, 

because there is no truth, 

nor mercy, 

nor knowledge of God in the land.


Blame no one for what we are all suffering now.

We're all responsible, for how the world has turned out to be.

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


Rather, focus on things, which are of GOD.

It's crucial discipline.


FOCUS on things above.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above

not on things on the earth.


FOCUS on Scripture.

Ye do err, 

not knowing the scriptures, 

nor the power of God.


SEEK God.

King James Version

13 And ye shall seek me, 

and find me, 

when ye shall search for me 

with all your heart.


TRUST God.

King James Version

10 And they that know thy name 

will put their trust in thee: 

for thou, 

Lord, 

hast not forsaken them 

that seek thee.


OBEY the Lord's commandments.

John 14:15

King James Version

15 If ye love me, 

keep my commandments.


BECOME born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


REPENT.

Acts 17:30

King James Version

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; 

but now commandeth all men every where to repent:


LOVE God.

Matthew 22:37-38

King James Version

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.


LOVE others.

Matthew 22:39-40

King James Version

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law 

and the prophets.


BELIEVE in Jesus.

John 14:1

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.


LISTEN to God's Spirit.

let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches

He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.


WATCH.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.


PRAY.

King James Version

3 Call unto me, 

and I will answer thee, 

and show thee great and mighty things, 

which thou knowest not.


FORGIVE.

Matthew 6:15

King James Version

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, 

neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.


GIVE thanks.

Colossians 1:12

King James Version

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, 

which hath made us meet 

to be partakers of the inheritance 

of the saints in light:


We have to trust God.

He has full control of everything.

For everything belongs to Him.

And our peace lies in JESUS.

Philippians 4:6-7

King James Version

6 Be careful for nothing; 

but in every thing 

by prayer and supplication 

with thanksgiving 

let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, 

which passeth all understanding, 

shall keep your hearts and minds 

through Christ Jesus.


For He has overcome the world.

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.

SURPRISE from SPIRIT

 

1 Corinthians 12:4

4 Now there are diversities of gifts, 

but the same Spirit.


I had no idea.

I just kept writing.

And writing.

And writing.

I wrote this last night.

Then SPIRIT made me sleep.

This morning, He gave me a gift.

A surprise, actually.

The article on sleep, led to thoughts of healing.

Thoughts of healing, led to reviewing the tabs from this blog.

I just realized, HEALING was already incorporated into this blog -- through tabs Spirit and I created.

Where I saw the parts, Spirit KNEW the WHOLE.

Most of the tabs, turned out to be PREREQUISITES for healing.

On relying upon:

GOD for grace, 

JESUS for healing, and

SPIRIT for teaching.


So, I shall present the surprise here.

There can be no healing, unless we become aware of these:

HOW to SLEEP WELL at night

 

Proverbs 3:5-6

King James Version

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; 

and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, 

and he shall direct thy paths.


Be like a child, unto God.

Only then can you sleep well at night.

Put to bed by God, assured there are no ghosts, or monsters, lurking around, the child in you goes to sleep peacefully.

Hoping others -- in every part of the world -- have a safe haven, too.

Hoping others have a roof over their head, had been fed, have a warm, cozy bed to lie on, have a family to be with, have a safe country, and are left to sleep in peace.

With no threat of hurt, or harm.

Upon the spirit, or the body.

Such is my wish for the world.

Basic stuff.

But essential stuff.

Our peace lies in JESUS.

Assured of the Lord's love, salvation, eternal life, and the Rapture, we children of God -- born agains -- have the promise of restful sleep.

We let Spirit take charge, guiding us EVERY moment.

We are not interested in following the world's ways.

Jesus has already shown the BEST way.

We follow His commandments.

Just like little children, we try to keep a pure mind, heart, body, and spirit.

We think only of Jesus, and we're fine.

We are content with what we have.

We don't compete with anyone.

We are not interested in schemes, or worldly dreams.

We already have the LORD.

He suffices.

We have His WORD.

That feeds our soul.

He gave us work to do.

We do our best.

We let Spirit guide us.

Our ways will always be contrary to the world.

But that's okay.

We're not here to be understood.

We're here to share about CHRIST.

Of how much He loves all of us.

Of how much God loves us -- enough to give us His Son as trespass offering.

We're here to talk about the urgency of the times.

Of how God may decide to have His faithful meet Jesus up in the air, any moment He sees fit.

In the fullness of HIS time.

In the meantime, we keep at our GOD CRAFT each day.

We do our best, guided by Scripture, so we may live according to God's commandments.

Now that we know, we refuse to sin any longer.

Jesus may come any time.

We want to be ready for that day.

For it could be any moment.

And this is all we could think about:

Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.


That's why we sleep good nights.

We hope you do, too!

Be a child unto God.

Matthew 18:3

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


Drop all previous knowledge.

Let SPIRIT teach you instead.

He will teach you about JESUS.

Then, you'll begin to understand.

And you can sleep better, too.

Knowing all is well in God's world.

He looks after His faithful.

All the time.

Psalm 121:8

King James Version

8 The Lord shall preserve 

thy going out 

and thy coming in 

from this time forth, 

and even for evermore.
