“Beloveds, tonight I want to talk to you about the doctrine of “Sola Scriptura”.
For in this time, many have twisted scriptures and doctrines to reflect their OWN beliefs.
Many have been led down a path of darkness because they didn’t understand the TRUTH about My ways, and how I think.
There are many who say, “Where does it say that in the WORD?”
And I tell you that is not a terrible question, because many want to be doing ONLY what is right in My eyes.
This is commendable, so don’t belittle them and mock them.
But then there are those who go way beyond the boundaries on the other end of the spectrum of errors, and think they can interpret the Word without listening to Me or the scriptures, or to the many who have gone before them studying for years and years.
There are many who don’t listen to a Jewish perspective also though YOU are grafted into THAT vine, not the other way around.”
“For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you,” Roman 11:16-18 NKJV.
“It would do you well to listen in this hour to their perspective, but do NOT make the mistake of Judaizing the WORDS I have spoken either.
Not everything I did is in the scriptures, or no one would be able to finish reading them.
Look at what I told the early disciples about Judaizers.
Get it into your spirit beloveds for many wolves roam about devouring the GRACE I have given you and turning the church into covens of religion, emphasizing the law and stealing away the GRACE into which you were reborn by the BLOOD I SHED ON THE CROSS!
Read and reread Galatians beloveds, for many of you are walking under a curse because of trying to prove yourself according to the law, rather than relying on My grace.
When you do that, you bring yourself under a curse!
Many walk in PRETENSE out of fear, that those over them will not forgive them or that they will humiliate them if they tell the truth about their struggles with sin ”
“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified,” Galatians 2:15-16 NKJV.
“I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain,” Galatians 2:21 NKJV.
Justification by Faith (cf. Roman 4)
“O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? Have you suffered so many things in vain — if indeed it was in vain?” Galatians 3:1-4 NKJV.
The Law Brings a Curse
“For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.” But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.” Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.” Galatians 3:10-12 NKJV.
“Walk in GRACE depending on ME to perfect those things you struggle with.
Grant grace to others knowing they too struggle to attain to the perfection of My Son. Not one of you is righteous so how can YOU JUDGE?
There is only ONE WHO is Righteous beloveds. Seek MY FACE and humble yourselves, walking in the spirit and not relying on religious concepts being taught in My church, but looking to the Author and Finisher of your faith to show you TRUTH.
The TRUTH is also a PERSON!!!!!
Remember what I told the Pharisees! Many today do the same thing as then.
They search and study, search and study the scriptures, but they do not know HOW to come to ME through My Most Holy Spirit and seek MY VOICE!
For they believe I no longer speak !”
“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life,” John 5:39-40 NKJV.
“I change NOT! My ways are limitless and beyond searching.
I want that everyone should come to Me, and that all who come to ME should learn to hear My voice. My voice comes in many ways.
I speak through perception, I speak through your mind. I speak through nature.
I speak through opening your eyes to things around you and events, and all manner of daily activities.
I show you things through experience, and through the experiences of others if you are willing to learn from them.
Not everyone hears the same, but all are capable of hearing if they are willing to have a love relationship with ME.
Ah… there’s the rub beloveds! For not all are willing, because they love the darkness more than the light, or they are AFRAID of exposing their hearts, or afraid of ME, not understanding My GRACE!
So I want you to be gentle but firm in what you say when you speak to those who are misled.
Take time to love. Take care to pray and seek MY FACE for how to minister MY love and TRUTH to them! Demonstrate the FRUIT that comes through relationship with ME, and many will be turned.
Many will be turned also by the DRAMATIC MIRACLES I AM loosing in this hour and the many signs and wonders I WILL display!
So have patience and forbearance beloveds for you will see what your eyes have longed to see.
The Awakening of AMERICA is at hand! The HARVEST of souls is upon you.”
