Rev.1: 8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.---Jesus is the Alpha and Omega- the Almighty!
Daniel 11:33. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Can "Churches" Be Saved if they Don't Teach the Truth?
This was posted a year ago... I wanted to post it again.
Short and sweet...
15: 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
The false churches teaching doctrines of devils...
Tim. 4: 1. 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; 2. Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared
with a hot iron; 3. Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from
meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which
believe and know the truth. 4. For every creature of God is good, and
nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5. For it is
sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
2 John 1: 9.
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not
God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the
Son. 10. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine
(truth), receive him not into your house,
neither bid him God speed: 11. For he that biddeth him God speed is
partaker of his evil deeds.
The "Churches" listed in the "What Do They
Believe" links to the left, for the most part, are what I believe the scriptures
are calling plants that "my heavenly Father hath not planted." Those are
devilish "church" plants.
Matthew 13: 24. Another parable put
he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which
sowed good seed in his field: 25. But while men slept, his enemy came and
sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26. But when the blade was
sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27. So
the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow
good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28. He said unto
them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that
we go and gather them up? 29. But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the
tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30. Let both grow together
until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather
ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather
the wheat into my barn.
Many that start in goofy doctrines, learn from
the word of God enough to leave, loving the Word more than the organization.
Our job is to find the wheat, and lead it into good fields by the
John 3: 16. For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life. 17. For God sent not his Son into the world to
condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18. He
that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned
already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of
God. 19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were
evil. 20. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to
the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21. But he that doeth
truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they
are wrought in God.
Many God fearing/honoring truth lovers living for
what they honestly believe is the pure word of God believe different things from
the same scriptures. Those in disagreement aren't necessarily the ones in
Romans 14: 1. Him that is weak in the faith
receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. 2. For one believeth that he
may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. 3. Let not him that
eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him
that eateth: for God hath received him. 4. Who art thou that judgest
another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall
be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. 5. One man esteemeth one
day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully
persuaded in his own mind. 6. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it
unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard
it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that
eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 7. For
none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 8. For whether
we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord:
whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. 9. For to this end
Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead
and living. 10. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set
at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of
Christ. 11. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall
bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12. So then every one of
us shall give account of himself to God. 13. Let us not therefore judge one
another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an
occasion to fall in his brother's way.
The only yardstick for the truth
is the word of God, the bible. The only one I trust is the KJV. See Gail
Riplinger "New Age Bible Versions" here
you are seriously walking according to the scriptures, the Spirit will lead you
into all truth. If you are trusting something other than the word of God for
your salvation map, you will be deceived and end up lost eternally!
It started to be short and sweet, but kept growing. Sorry. May God bless you
with a love for the truth!
