HE THAT HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR..!
Heresy is not just teaching that which is contrary to the Word of God, but can be the over emphasis of one truth, at the expense of another!
Today it seems that we have derailed from THE TRUTH, and by this I do mean just a collection of facts, but a PERSONALITY – JESUS CHRIST, John 14:6.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
God has been adding beauty to His work, by pouring out higher levels and dimensions of truth to His Church, whom we are collectively. This is being made possible by the Holy Spirit, through the gift ministries – apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers – whose primary duty is to edify, to build up the entire body of believers, and not to DEFILE and DEFY THE TRUTH of the Word!
When Jude spoke to the believers of his time, and apparently, believers of all times concerning the FAITH that was once and for all delivered to us, he was not speaking of faith which is the evidence of things hoped for, as written in Hebrews 11. His usage of the word ‘THE FAITH’ was the DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, which we have received, the salvation on which we all stand!
“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ,” Jude 3-4.
The Word of God is infallible, having been tested 7 times, as David said. I BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD TO BE THE FOUNDATION OF ANY MINISTRY. I BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF TRUTH. I BELIEVE IN PROPHETS AND THE PROPHETIC MINISTRY, BUT I BELIEVE ABOVE EVERYTHING AND EVERY ONE THAT OUR DOGMAS OR WHAT WE CALL DOCTRINES MAY BE WRONG BUT THE WORD OF GOD IS THE ONLY TRUE SOURCE OF INFORMATION I NEED.
On this account, SPARE ME SOME OF YOUR ERRONEOUS prophetic visions and revelations. Every vision and revelation must be proven by the Word of God. If it has no connection to the Word of God, IT IS NOT FROM GOD!
I will dwell on the PROPHETIC MINISTRY for now. The purpose of the gift ministries, like I said, is to edify by the truth, not to defile and defy by error.
I have heard where so-called prophets in the name of PROPHETIC INVESTIGATIONS, have told people that their problems are traceable to the spirit of their grand parents, troubling and witch hunting them, and these people, wanting to get rid of such spirits, have done despicable things for their deliverance from these so – called spirits of their grand father or fathers, or any other as the case may seem… Hmmmmm… NONSENSE!!!
This is no different from the deeds and acts of the sangomas of South Africa and other African nation. I wonder why people are so easily deceived? I really ponder and wonder, why?
The dead have nothing to do with the living, as the bible says, “IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MEN TO DIE ONCE…. AND THEN JUDGEMENT..,” Hebrews 9:27. So when did your fathers spirit escape the roll of others on the queue, to come back and witch-hunt you?
Oh yes, perhaps when the angels were distracted, they immediately escaped to come back for you… Hehehehehe! Oh Please! This kind of so called prophetic investigations is gradually returning the simple from their traditional worship, which they once denounced!
I AM A BELIEVER OF THE WORD OF GOD. I STUDY, MEDITATE AND RUMINATE ON THE WORD OF GOD and therefore can never be returned back to bondage.
STAND FAST THEREFORE IN THE LIBERTY WHEREWITH CHRIST HAS MADE YOU FREE, AND BE NOT AGAIN ENTANGLED WITH THE YOKE OF BONDAGE..!
