These are the end times. How do we tell? If you just started out, if you are a kid, it is getting more and more difficult to find true faith in the age that is flooded with false teachers, false prophets and false doctrines, so much more than the days when Paul was writing letters to warn the early believer communities and to young Timothy.
We find ourselves thriving in the Age of Laodicea. That last assembly in Revelation 3 where Eashoa threatens to vomit out the lukewarm individuals from therein out of His mouth. They shall be removed violently out of His kingdom, out of His system. And as no one who vomits will eat back the vomit, it is another way of Eashoa declaring a warning. Those that Eashoa will vomit out of His mouth will never ever be received again. It is another way of repeating the warning in Matthew 7|21 – 23 where He will say to some who profess to believe Him, call Him Lord, Depart from Me! I never knew you. On that day, the last chance, there will be no room left for a recourse.
Those that Eashoa will vomit out of His mouth will never ever be received again.
A few seekers are struggling with believing that Eashoa is God and He is the only begotten son of God. This is a statement of faith from the Apostolic Faith. It is not up for discussion before the pearly gates. People discuss it all day long in social media and it is where they will stay. I hope they can remove the Adam style rebellion from their hearts. Some of these questioners have been in this stage all their lives. The problem is that heart of stone inside.
The Word of יהוה is יהוה.
They will know that I AM יהוה.– Ezekiel 12 | 15- 16
Shemot 6 | 7 I will take you to Myself as a people, and I will be your God. You will know that I AM Adonai your God, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
Isaiah 43:10 “You are My witnesses” —it is a declaration of Adonai— “and My Servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I AM He. Before Me no God was formed, and there will none after Me.
Ezekiel 12:15-16 So they will know that I AM Adonai when I scatter them among the nations and disperse them among the countries. But I will let a few of them escape the sword, the famine and the pestilence, so they may tell about all their detestable practices among the nations where they go. And they will know that I AM Adonai.”
Those who come to God must believe in His existence first. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently. In all this promise in Hebrews 11, there is one thing said here that will be pleasing to God. Believe Him at His Word. Father promises to bring a reward as an incentive. The Son in the flesh gave us this promise Himself.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
Many of these seekers are agnostics, the Catholics, the LDS Mormons (I only spoke wit 4 elders in their early 20s on Monday, to boot), many of these who regard themselves as Christians, and well over half of Americans who call themselves Christians, who do not believe that “Jesus is God”. In a 2016 Lifeway research, we get to gauge the temperature of faith in America as follows.
- Six in 10 say everyone eventually goes to heaven, but half say only those who believe in Jesus will be saved.
- And while 7 in 10 say there’s only one true God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—two-thirds say God accepts worship of all faiths.
- Two-thirds of Americans believe Jesus is God while half say Jesus is a being created by God.
In another research by Lifeway more recently conducted, they report:
- Most people are basically good (52%)
- God accepts the worship of all religions (51%)
- Jesus was the first and greatest being created by God the Father (78%)
Those are among the findings of a new survey of American views on Christian theology from Nashville-based LifeWay Research.
So according to the King, Eashoa, what may 78% of all those in America today who believe that Eashoa is a creature come to?
This is a very deceptive situation that they have to deal with, for them. The 78% have found the “another Jesus” from 2 Qorinthiym 11 | 4. That guy won’t take them across the Jordan to the Promised Land. And that is my premise for a false rapture where the antichrist will gladly snatch them up. Eashoa only promise that He will lose none that
The Present State Of The Average Evangelical
Knowing this, I can preach all day to someone who identifies himself or herself as an evangelical. Many evangelicals rejected the Bible’s teaching on
(1) the gravity of man’s sin,
(2) the importance of the church’s gathering together for worship, and
(3) the Holy Spirit,” stated Ligonier.
More than two-thirds (69%) of Americans disagree that the smallest sin deserves eternal damnation—and 58 percent strongly disagree.
Ligonier finds this “alarming.”
A majority of US adults (58%) said that worshiping alone or with one’s family is a valid replacement for regularly attending church. Only 30 percent disagree.
A majority of US adults (59%) say that the Holy Spirit is a force, not a personal being. [HERESY is the denial of Biblically sound belief articles.]
Ligonier cites relativism for such a “casual outlook.” In the survey, 6 in 10 Americans agree that “religious belief is a matter of personal opinion [and] not about objective truth”—and 1 in 3 evangelicals (32%) say the same.
The Top Of The Commandments
Upon Sinai, Elohiym entered into the Mosaic Covenant with the nation of YisroEl. The top of the contractual terms is exclusive devotion to Himself.
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and
with all your soul and with all your might. – Devarim 6 | 5
Eashoa says in the New Testament, the greatest commandment is this.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ – Mark 12 | 20
For a believer to be compliant to all of the above, there is to be no room for idols or any other gods. I find that most people today are caught up in a snare of divided attention. I think the believers need a lot more mercy and passes than they have calculated the cost of following God.
Among this group of religious people, they have a life threatening dilemma position to consider that concerns their place in eternity. And especially for the 78% block of the christendom.
Here are the considerations for them.
1. If Jesus “is not God”, then how will He be “coming from heaven”?
2. If they suggest He is an angel, then an angel is only a creature. In that case, they de facto by faith do not believe they can be saved. An angel is just a creature from a different race. That angel being put to death had no business with sinners. One angel can die after another for the same purpose. That sacrifice of an angel only suffered his own death of his own doing. It is theater to those who do not believe that the Lord Himself came in the flesh. He is God.
3. If they suggest that Jesus “is a god but not God”, then they break the First and foremost Commandment, there is no other god beside יהוה.
Therefore the Gate is very narrow. It allows for only one way to believe Eashoa.
He is God, He is the Son of God. I AM the way, the truth and the life, says Eashoa. No one may come to the Father except through Me. Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the way that leads to destruction and many will enter it.
