TRUTH MUST BE SOUGHT AND BELIEVED

Posted 1 Mar 2010 at 12:10 PM by spanner

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.


TRUTH

This word has been tossed around like a bowl of salad mixed with every doctrine and teaching that mankind could institute and "get away" with, and has deceived and seduced the simple-minded whether they be intelligent among men or the ignorant among the masses. There is an old proverb (not the Bible) which states, "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time" while this is true to some extent it is not of it's self true, but made true only by the actions of God. God has placed those among humanity to usher us back to the truth, like that of the "Shepherd" of our souls among the wolves of the lot.

SEDUCTION

NOT all who are seduced are necessarily deceived. There are those who fully understand the "nature of the beast" and choose to go forth for ideaology sake, building for themselves a lifestyle of abundance and giving no attention to such things as truth. These can be heard primarily in the market place and in the leaders so-called of the world. Some are there as leaders of a people and are trying to do that which they deem is correct for the people and they join and "go along" (The Seduced) with the others, thinking the "others" do the same and are wise men that have found the road or path to peace and prosperity. They have adopted the view of the overall good outweighs the temporary evil and will perform the evil (temporarily they assume) to attain the good. The "others" have no concern for what motivates men they only seek to setup and overthrow any and all that get in their way (The Seducers).

DECEIVED

The deceived believe they have found the truth and set forth to accomplish or do the truth. These, having convinced themselves, that they have "attained" can be found usually among the "followers" of teachers so-called, who for the most part have begun to question their own beliefs but adhere to that foundation because they fear to leave or have built friendships or are among family members and do not want to become "ostersized" this was found among those in the 1st Century Jews. The "deceived" will protect the doctrine and will change meanings of words and histories to fit into the doctrine and think themselves correct as they have the correct doctrine of men. They can be found among Educaters, Political Leaders, Bankers, and in those posititions that allow change of thought for the people and enlarge their camp and doctrine. Largely found in the field of education they support the teaching of the world and assume it is correct as it does not violate their doctrinal positions. They behave like those of all religions of the world and have indoctrinations into their belief which usually sets about a "rite of passage" such as baptism in water or praying three times a day in a certain direction or 35 Hail Mary's etc..,. Deceived Followers make, for the most part, lifelong committments of their belief and do not question the "belief" to whether it is right or wrong. The "deceived followers" were found among the Germans and were committed to the Reich no matter the cost, and of course this is the extreme camp, these are however, found in any church, synagogue, or temple in the world. The Deceiver as the leader of a specific group, has been introduced to the truth and chose to find a way "around" the truth so as to not circumvent or alter the "path" of his followers, he/she has a need in their "psyche" to be admired and are envious of those who know the truth and inform others of the truth and makes it his/her goal to "blast" or tear down the truth. They can be found in books and pamphlets informing the masses of the evil of those who support the truth and usually "attack" their person or their lifestyle but mainly their view of the truth. They, realizing a truth, do not insert what they have understood about the matter in their own view or words, but stay in the attack mode of those who support truth. One example is their view of Revelation and Armaggedon, as they insist and assert it occurred in the "sacking of Israel in 65-70AD" but they have never put into words, pamphlets, or books the events of such destruction as outlined in the book of Revelation but take bits and pieces and insert them whenever they "need" to prove their doctrine. By the use of one word they assert that all of Revelation is "Symbolic" and because it is symbolic they are the "only" interpreters of the symbolism as they have "discovered" the text to have been symbolic. What is that one word? Signified, to most people it represents nothing more than a sealing of the content, but to them it means a "sign" and a sign can be a "symbol". This deduction then becomes a belief all of it's own much as that of the Zodiac charts and the Astrologer. Do they know the book of Revelation is complete literal truth? Yes. They prove such in their inability to explain the text in it's entireity and have no one in their belief that can document or explain the text, but they know their way is 100% correct even if they themselves cannot understand or interpret. This is what mankind calls "blind faith" or what Christ stated about the "blind leading the blind" in this case however, they are not "blind" but are in a " * willful deception mode" as Peter stated. Of this type, that is the "deceivers" is found Judas Iscariot and Lucifer the fallen angel, while being in the company of and physically "seeing" the truth because of envy and pride denied and tried to overthrow the truth. So too, do these "leaders" ignore what Peter was teaching in ll Peter 3 concerning the flood which engulfed the entire world and lands with water and Peter is emphasizing along with the book of Revelation that this time of Tribulation is not local or regional but comes upon the whole world and the land. There is none left unaffected by this time of trouble and destruction, it will encompass all even the islands with such impact, that the islands will be moved and the continents be re-joined back together as they were in the beginning, so they shall be in the end. They also ignore or teach that the re-gathering of the Jew to Israel does not occur rejecting the entire chapter 7 of Revelation which not only pulls the Jew back to the land but names the very tribes affected. This chapter even omits the one name of Dan which God had removed from being a tribe of Israel, and does not include him here showing the extreme detail that God has instituted into HIS word. Most of these "leaders" insert themselves as the "new Israel" or Jew and that God has removed them permanently. The ironic thing they take into themselves is that God rejected the Jew under Christ and now rejects them (Jew) permanently, again ignoring the fact that the Jew was blinded in part that we the Gentile might come into salvation and family of God, so by their blindness we are brought in and now this group is doing the same as that of Israel when Christ came. The same or similiar stance is taken by the Arabic Nations as they assert that Abraham was their father and they were chosen through Ishmael the son of Abraham and Hagar the Egyptian. Today there exists a "tie or bond" between America and the nations to that of Egypt which is revealed in the inscriptions of their monies and names of their cities and will bring to fruition the Babylon of old in the European theatre. These totally reject the obvious found all about them some even taking the names of the cities, thus Egypt, on their banners which hang on their denomination using the example found in Revelation as the churches identified by John for description and destruction, again ignoring their own namesakes foretold. When all is said and done there will not exist a church that is named for a city, town, etc.., but will bear only one name and that is Jesus Christ, much the same as there will not exist any longer the Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, etc.., only Christ. These that are carried in and of themselves take much glorying in their church or temple names as though this would make them holy or righteous. We that are Christian glory in Jesus, not in a building or a temple or any other name mentioned among men.

EVOLUTION

Faced with what they think is unsurmountable facts, the teachers adopt the platform to coincide with their own "belief" and especially so with the idea of evolution. Not all of the leaders will adapt to making the idea of evolution (evolution is the example used as it is the most widely spread, however, you can insert many more wrong ideas here) conform to their belief pattern but will instead "hold on" to the "original" belief and through separation of the group or division, setup their "original" doctrine much as those who first separated themselves from the original to seek a way to incorporate evolution. The "originalists" begin to criticise and attack the splinter groups as false teachers gone astray, or in a more modern term, "teachers gone wild" (don't however, look for the video or DVD). The oddity or irony of such an attack of the originalists is they themselves were the teachers of these same children who adopted the evolution ideaology, a revealed fulfilled prophecy unveiled. This is the same process that * Peter was teaching in the Bible and another irony is that most of these leaders teach and revere the teachings of Peter whether knowingly (other religionists of the world) or unknowingly, especially so when it involves * baptism. Baptism whether dunked or sprinkled is not authorized by Christ but by men who have not the authority to do so by the example given through and by Jesus HIMSELF. Baptism is another "lock" used by men to institute fear or committment unto their cause. These teach that by water immersion or sprinkling a person is "saved" or born again as long as the one baptizing is using the name of Jesus Christ, but openly deny that they themselves are practicing and setting up a Co-redemption process with Christ. They will assert that Christ does not have a co-redeemer or a partner in the redeemption process and then institute one under what they term as the, "believer's baptism" - a rose by any other name is still a rose, no matter how it smells. This also was instituted from a "grave" misunderstanding by Peter in the Acts 2:38, proudly displayed in their "churches" are the words on the wall or from the mouth of the "leaders". Although Peter, having not mentioned any water or H2O formulae for salvation the "leaders" impose he meant to or wanted to and somehow forgot to do so. Peter stated the people were to be "baptized in the name of Jesus Christ" but the twist takes place when they move to Matthew 28 and insert that men cannot baptise by the Holy Spirit but can baptize by water and by rudimentary philosophical twisting state this is what Christ meant with the words, "baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost". They have forgotten that it is Christ that saves and it is Christ that seals us unto HIMSELF not man, if man cannot baptise anyone into the Holy Spirit, it is a certain that man cannot redeem any person irregardless of how many times he places him under the water, even their own logic and twist reverses upon them. They have made reckless disregard of the power that is in the name of Jesus Christ as recorded by John (I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.; These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. - l John 2:12 and l John 5:13 respectively) and that of Peter in Acts 10:43-45:To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
The scripture also declares in Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. They have forgotten that there is power in the name to the point of driving out demons and healing of the sick and that Christ HIMSELF baptized not one solitary person setting forth an example that baptism must mean something other than water (John 4:1-2 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) showing us the example)
So how do a people who seem to be intelligent vere so far off course?


TRUTH MUST BE SOUGHT AND BELIEVED


Unfortunately, while men can teach the truth they cannot make the hearing individual understand or "catch" the truth. Arabs, Catholics, Christians and Jews all teach what they precieve as the truth and all fail miserably which is demonstrated by their many divisions among their own belief practices. They build temples, churches and synagogues all beautiful in appearance and make games, incorporate television sets, and make movies all affirming their views and to bring in the young and old alike. Baseball, football, tennis and soccer fields adorn the properties of the buildings not to mention the inside eateries and basketball courts incorporating what the world has to offer, while teaching and preaching the sins of the world and it's wares and it's appeal of pleasure and sex, then turn on the overhead screen to watch the Sugar Bowl and those sexy skimpy cheerleaders cheering to the top of their lung capacity all in the name of community and fellowship. They make places for singles to meet and develope relationships for a later wedding they can't afford in a marriage in the same church. They build schools into the places of worship and then send their children to public or other schools they can afford often of another belief or doctrine than their own. They teach that men should not borrow but they go in debt for an 8 million update to honor their God or deity. They use computerization and place all their files and folders full of information and view online inappropriate material and preach/teach the evil of the network and porn. They whine and dine the elite with golf and freebies to effect the votes and the elected officials. They write books, do talks and speeches and neglect the poor and infirmed and teach their congregation they should visit the poor and help the infirmed. They cannot understand the turnover in their members and have no time for the people or their questions of the scripture and the people go elsewhere to find the answers, while the "leaders" remain puzzeled at the diminishing returns. They buy stock on Wall Street and teach the people they should not gamble and can't comprehend how the lottery invaded their neighborhood on their watch. They go to other cities to sin thinking that by not being seen by their community or congregation they are hid. They and their followers become insensitive to crime, corruption, and the world around them and believe it is the same as it alway was only reported more now with the modern electronic age. They have no realization that the church, synagogue, and the temple have fallen and are in a state of disrepair, nor do they recognize the time and season of Christ's return, but state within themselves and to others, "all things continue as they were" there is no difference today than yesteryear.
They wonder now in the streets, in the libraries of time, in the homes they congregate, they search and look in every direction, their voices are heard as screams, their tongue is thirsty unquenchablly so and their palate is made dry, they long for that they cannot find, in vain they search and long for love, if one were to tell them they had but to open the Bible for their nourishment and thirst, they think him less than that of a fool.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.



* ll Peter 3:3-8 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they * willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

* ll Peter 2:13-22 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet. These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

EXAMPLE of TRUTH
Did you know that the vehicle which was used to cause the housing market collapse, thus the economy, was a bill called, The Community Reinvestment Act, which allowed people with little income, some on welfare status, to purchase up to a 1 Million dollar home which was then re-sold at a higher value to gain a profit for the "welfare" purchaser? The purchaser was only required to pay the principal and not the interest for a five year peroid, thus enabling the re-distribution of the wealth through the housing markets, in time the interest caught up which could not be paid and created the total world market failure.
